This newly created 5-Ingredient Fall Pork Chop recipe was a huge hit with all of the Parker clan. The total time to make these chops clocks is under 30 minutes. I served them over Cauliflower Rice with Roasted Asparagus and Steamed Green Beans.

This week I’m trying to get back to some semblance of normalcy and I know I’m not the only one. There are still so many people trying figure out how to put the pieces back together after Harvey and Irma forged paths of destruction that will forever leave scars and tales of survival.Read More
Have you ever seen “quick and easy” cooking videos show up in your Facebook feed and thought, “I could totally make these!” only to find yourself halfway through the prepping realizing that it’s anything but easy and a whole lot more work than is shown in the 2 minute clips?

But now that you have your feet firmly planted in the idea of living clean, this is the time to dig a little deeper into this topic.Read More
It’s recipe day and boy, do I have something everyone will love.
Once upon a time, I used to make a casserole with chicken, broccoli, Ritz crackers and cream of chicken soup. It was one of those dishes that I’d serve the family whenever we were in need of some serious comfort food.Read More

I've tried to allow my teens to have a little leeway and buy organic, gluten-free snacks, cereals and the such for them to have on occasion.
