How To Simplify

I met Jen this past summer at EVO.  She was in charge of organizing all the speakers.  Sweet girl, but looking at her, you’d never know she likes to eat.  Twig thin…….jealous.

These look SO good!  I usually just buy BBQ sauce and meatballs at Trader Joe’s and call it good.

Appetizer Meatballs

Her meatballs look pretty tasty…… I may try her sauce next time.  All her recipes can be found on her site.

I’ve been making something similar for years……I didn’t know it was called goulash.  I could have a love affair with pasta! Yum Yum Yum! I can pretty much eat all my meals from a bowl.

Mac & Cheese

WORD…. do I really need to say anything about homemade mac and cheese?  Didn’t think so.

Beans & Rice

Rice with Black Beans with Cilantro & lime

I’ve been known to hit Chipotle a few times a month.  But with this recipe, I can just make my own rice & beans.  So so yummy!

Jen has more than just comfort food on her site. She’s got a little bit of everything.  What I love is she uses wholesome products and of course I’m completely drawn in with her photos!

No more whining about not having anything to make for dinner.  Just head over to How to: Simplify for your menu planning.

    Oh she has a recipe for Hasselback Potatoes! I had those once long ago and I wanted another and another. I think she made them with an spicy tomato sauce so I will definitely give this one a try. Thanks for the link!
