One Pan Garlic Parmesan Pasta

One Pan Garlic Parmesan PastaThis One Pan Garlic Parmesan Pasta is a delicious dinner and it’s an easy recipe. I love that you place all the ingredients into a pot after you saute the garlic, and then you let it simmer for 20 minutes until done. Serve it with some bread and a side of vegetables and dinner is on the table.  To change up the recipe, you could also add cooked chicken to the top to make it a garlic Parmesan chicken pasta dish. Here is how to make the recipe:

Baked Italian Sandwiches

Baked Italian SandwichesI tried out a new recipe, and it turned out so good! These Baked Italian Sandwiches are delicious, and my kids loved them too. I ate a few more sandwiches than I probably should have, but they just tasted delicious. What I love the most about these Baked Italian Sandwiches is the melted cheese and that they were warm right out of the oven. The pasta sauce used as a dipping sauce added to the flavors of the sandwich. If you need a quick dinner idea for the family, this is a great meal to make. It took about ten minutes to prep and 16 minutes to bake.

Homemade Easy Bean Taquitos in the Oven

Easy Bean Taquitos

Sometimes there are those days where we need a quick dinner idea. These homemade and Easy Bean Taquitos are one of those meals that can be thrown together within minutes and put in the oven to cook. I like that these taquitos are baked rather than cooked in oil. Add fresh fruits and vegetables to the side or make this Easy Spanish Rice recipe to go along with the dinner.

Let’s just say that I kept eating these until I was stuffed. Since I loved them so much, I knew I had to try making them for my family. It turned out that they were simple to make. This is a quick and easy meal idea for dinner and definitely one I’ll be making again.

12 Steps to Spring Cleaning the Kitchen

Spring Cleaning Kitchen

I enjoy spring cleaning and like the outcome of a clean house. And since I wasn’t able to really clean my house this past year since having a new baby, I want to get a fresh start this spring and really deep clean the house. When my house is cluttered or dirty, I have a harder time getting things done. But when my house is clean, I think more clearly and am able to organize my time and day better.

The kitchen is probably the hardest area of the house to keep clean since it’s used so much. And with young children, I don’t have enough time where I can just clean for hours at a time. So what I did to spring clean my kitchen was to set the time for 30 minutes to one hour each day for a week and complete two of the items below. The most difficult part of spring cleaning is just getting started. Once I started cleaning, my two young daughters would come and ask what they could clean. It was enjoyable to have them work alongside me and the cleaning time went by quickly. After the week was over, I felt so good that I had accomplished the big task of deep cleaning the kitchen.

Below is a list of cleaning tips and what I did to spring clean the kitchen. You might like to start by reading this post on Spring Cleaning: Organizing and Getting Started.
