Our go-to recipes

We’ve all spent hours on Pinterest searching for the perfect recipe. One that’s healthy, easy to make, easy to clean up and one our kids will eat. The one that will make our lives easier.

In all its glory we find a photo of something that may be a fit! We click to the recipe to find 10 paragraphs on where she lives, setting the mood, the local grocer and family food allergies. This is not easier, this is bulls***.

Ingredients and Instructions. That’s all you’ll find here. No one has time to read a dissertation before finally finding the actual recipe. 
See one you like (trust us, you’ll like it). Just browse and get cooking.

We will post 2-4 new recipes weekly.
