Mini Chicken Schnitzels with Skinny Fries

Who knew making fries at home was easy?! I'm totally floored by Mini Chicken Schnitzels and Skinny Fries with Garlic Aioli. If I had known French fries were this simple to create at home, I would have started making them a long time ago. Seriously, they were better than eating out...and probably a little healthier! The best part? You don't …

Leftover Thanksgiving Quesadillas

For Thanksgiving we took a nontraditional route and had our meal catered by Real Urban BBQ. It gave us more time together as a family and saved my mom a ton of stress. She was so happy in the days leading up knowing she wouldn't be in the kitchen all day! Even with all the yumminess, leftovers were expected. (Sometimes I think Thanksgiving …

Spooky Mummy Sandwiches

Can you believe it is already October? We are starting to plan Zelda’s Halloween costume, which changes daily. One minute she wants to be a hot dog and the next minute a ghost kitty. I’m thinking she might have to do more than one this year because she loves Halloween. We are planning to celebrate all month long! The first dish …

Grilled ABC Sandwiches

When I have time to cook with Zelda I always make sure to involve her in every part of the process that I can. She has really started to take an interest in cooking and always tells me, “I want to help!”, which is pretty much the cutest thing ever. With these Grilled ABC Sandwiches, I allowed her to …

Rainbow Macaroni Salad

While fall doesn’t officially begin until September 22nd, my brain changes seasons when the sun goes down on Labor Day. After that, I switch into cold weather mode – bring on the thick knit sweaters and black leather boots! To close the summer season, I wanted to share one of my favorite meals to bring to a …

Back to School DIY Lunchables

Lunchables should always be three things: delicious, easy to put together and fun to eat! Store bought lunchables are full of preservatives, packed with sodium and most contain a full day’s worth of saturated fat – no thanks. Making a homemade lunchable is so easy and allows you to have way more control of what your little one …

Sweet Summertime Peach Flatbread

I usually don’t make peach flatbread at home because I can never quite recreate that special restaurant magic, until now. This was the first time I ever put Flatout Flatbread in the oven and it makes for a super crispy and delicious crust. Grilling the peaches beforehand is essential – it adds a lovely char that makes the …

Go Cubs Go! Mini Chicago Style Hot Dogs

Baseball season is in full swing (pun intended!) and we can’t wait to take Zelda to her next game. It’s a been a few years since her and Luca made an appearance (they’ve been busy hanging out at Swissotel) and she’s long overdue for a game. In the meantime, we’ve been cheering on the Cubbies from …

5 Minute Extra Crispy Pepperoni Pizza

Sometimes when I get home from a long day at the office cooking a full-blown meal isn’t at the top of my list. I was recently introduced to Flatzza from Angelic Bakehouse and this 7-grain flatbread is my signature go-to when I don’t want to spend considerable time in the kitchen. It’s non-GMO, kosher, peanut free, tree nut …
