    Good Casseroles and Bad Attitudes

    Ree’s Casserole is really good!!!! We were just not in a place to appreciate it the first night I whipped in out on the Fam. It has been redeemed and taken its position in the potluck rotation since this posting. I was in full on mom organization mode. A new school year will do that to you.  New planners, new schedules, a fresh start and I was not going to be behind the ball.   I planned my menus for the first full week of school schedule craziness and was pretty darn proud of the accomplishment. I was prepared to get meals on the table at 6 no matter what the schedule.   For 5…

    Low Fat Soda Cupcakes

    I do not have the mindset to make New Year’s resolutions. I know there is no possible way that I would stick to any of them.
