It’s 6:00 on a Tuesday night and I should have started dinner half an hour ago. At this point I’ve Lost all motivation and will likely pop a cup of Easy Mac into the microwave for my toddler.

Sound familiar? We’ve all been there. As a stay at home mom, I face so many moments throughout the week where I immediately turn to sugary snacks or pre-made, processed meals. It’s not that I don’t like to cook, I actually love it. But I’m often faced with situations where we’re running late to an appointment or play date or spending the day running errands. Or I have a fussy toddler who wants me to play dinosaurs instead of going to the kitchen to cook for an hour.

As easy as it is to throw fruit snacks in the diaper bag or microwave a frozen dinner on these days, it’s just not satisfying. Most of the time these foods don’t leave us feeling full. Honestly, nothing can compare to fresh, healthy food.

So I have been left with wondering how we as moms and wives can make sure our family is getting high quality snacks and meals without resulting in us being in the kitchen all day. And without leaving us stressed out or feeling guilty for a less than nutritional meal.

This is why I have decided to partner with Pampered Chef Independent Executive Consultant, Julie Gizzi. We wanted to bring you a list of MUST HAVE, TIME SAVING Pampered Chef products. I put a lot of thought into this list for both myself and for you!

Okay mamas, raise your hand if you love coffee! Did you raise it? Then keep reading. Do you not only love coffee but prefer to order specialty drinks when you go to your local coffee shop (i.e. macchiatos, lattes, hot chocolate)? If you answered yes, keep reading!

I would like to introduce to you our newest kitchen member, the Genio 2. Naturally my husband and I were excited and pulled it out immediately to try it. The first thing we noticed is the chic and futuristic look of the machine, the next thing we noticed was how compact it is! We live in an apartment so space is limited. I also cook a lot so I need my counter space. The Genio 2 fit perfectly in it’s own corner and that is where it continues to reside.

Oven Baked Donut Holes


Binge watching The Flash last night, I realized (at about 10 p.m) that I had an Easter picnic/potluck with my running club in the morning. In realizing this, I remembered I hadn’t picked up anything to make. Sitting there kicking myself for forgetting, I briefly thought, I can just pick something up on the way in the a.m. Then I came back to reality knowing I would never get us ready and out of the door in time.

I would love to tell you all that this doesn’t happen to me often but that would be a lie. I am a last minute kind of girl…but I’m also the girl who loves to bring good food to the party.

Homemade Mashed Potatoes 

 

cover-fixedNo matter the occasion we LOVE mashed potatoes! After various experiments I found my ultimate go-to recipe. I’ve always been one of those people who just toss in a little of this or a little of that (blame my mother) and this recipe was no different. However, after multiple requests, I have measured ingredients out to share with all of you!
