Some evenings, you just feel like cuddling up on the couch... and if it's been a long week, you might not feel like making dinner either. You’ve worked hard and earned a much needed relax night. That is why they invented pizza night, after all!
This Memorial Day, make sure you have the best menu possible with this amazing recipe for corn on the cob, with a twist!
Here are two creative ways to make an ordinary side dish even more delicious:
Every mom has her own version of this staple recipe in her repertoire. In our house, I know the kids go nuts when they find out it’s spaghetti and meatballs for dinner! Hopefully your kids will too - especially with this recipe!

I was first introduced to empanadas about 12 years ago when I met my husband. Being that he's Venezuelan, empanadas were a main staple in his home. His mother always had them hot and ready-to-go every day when he came home from school.
Sometimes I like to remind my husband that I can cook more than just the simple dinner that I make for the kids. I mean, I'm pretty sure that when the kids come to ask me "Mom! What's for dinner?" if I say "Osso Bucco," then I can say with certainty they're going to go "eeeewww!!!" and "yuckkkk!!!" But if my husband asks me what's for dinner and I say "Osso Bucco," I can say with certainty he's gonna be pretty happy. It's one of his favorite dishes!
Every now and then, I like to mix it up a bit when it comes to making burgers.
Take these tasty "mini burgers" - they're perfect for a party or just a fun twist on a traditional meal that's great any night of the week. Not only are they super easy to make, but the variations are simply endless!
Although I choose to eat a vegan diet (which does not include seafood), it is a very personal choice and it's not for everyone. But no matter what your diet or lifestyle, I think we should all be as environmentally conscious with our food choices as possible. For that reason I am happy to share with you a lovely guest post and eco-friendly seafood recipe!

I'm going out on a limb with this recipe... but if you've ever been inspired to try something different or eaten something in a restaurant and thought, I want to know how they make this, then this recipe is for you!!
Everyone’s got their own childhood memories when it comes to food. For most kids in America their earliest or first memories in the kitchen are probably sticking their fingers in some sort of ooey chocolatey batter and licking the bowl clean or eating some raw cookie dough while Mom or Grandma was making some cookies.
Beans, beans the musical fruit, do you really want more of them in your diet? Yes!
This recipe is fantastic for any night of the week. It's gourmet enough for mom and dad to love... but yummy enough for the kids to enjoy as well!
It combines some of my (and my kids) favorite things - artichokes, mushrooms and tender chicken pieces.... what more could you ask for?
