Simple Sloppy Joes

My kids love to eat these (which is always nice) but it’s definitely filling and flavorful enough for us adults too! We also like to mix it up and serve these not only on buns, but on hearty whole wheat bread, pita pockets, or even a flat bread. It makes for a more sophisticated twist […]

Sweet and Hot Sausage Sandwich

My husband and I like to create sandwiches and see if we can impress each other. When I asked him if he thought they were good (we weren’t able to eat together the night I made these) he said, “Yeah, I had two!” So I guess it passed the test. I impressed myself as well […]

Make your own pancake mix with simple ingredients including flour, sugar, and powdered milk. Making pancakes without pancake mix sometimes seems like too much work (when in reality, it really isn’t…but you know how it is)! I have seen recipes for homemade pancake mix before but I didn’t really feel like making it. I didn’t […]
