easy weeknight lemon pepper salmon

I don’t know about your house, but dinner time here can sure be hectic.  With three little kids, someone is sure to get hangry (aka hungry and angry) during that hour or so before dinnertime.  And maybe that someone can be me… I am not perfect.  When we need dinner fast, with little prep and…

cream cheese chicken taquitos

Some dinners I definitely make because it’s something I really want to eat, then other times I choose something I know my husband will be thrilled about.  I like to wave my nice wifey flag every once in a while. 🙂  Our tastes are a bit different, but usually there’s a good middle ground I…

Here’s a look at what we…

fish tacos with feta slaw

I don’t know why we don’t eat fish tacos more often. Every time we I make them it’s pretty much just deliciousness. Serious deliciousness.  These ones were no different. Fish tacos are so simple and fresh tasting too. Gosh I just love them.  And that cool crunch that normally comes along with fish tacos?  Makes…
