Super Quick Sweet Potato Hash

Super Quick Sweet Potato Hash

Roasted sweet potatoes are one of our favorite side dishes. The kids will always eat them, especially when ketchup is present, and they seem to go with just about everything. Trouble is, sweet potatoes take a solid 30 minutes to wash, chop and roast, which is often longer than I have. So I’ve come up with an easy shortcut:… Continue Reading

Ninety-nine percent of the time, I buy pre-washed salad greens.

Once in awhile though, I forget what a pain it is to deal with dirty greens – or… Continue Reading

With hungry kids at my feet and no planning or preparation under my belt, I just need an idea – a way to combine the random ingredients in my fridge into something my family members will eat and enjoy.
