Loaded Baked Fauxtato Casserole

Loaded Baked Fauxtato Casserole

Loaded Baked Fauxtato Casserole from thecoersfamily.com

I’m in love with this side dish. It’s scrumptious. I don’t say that word a lot… but this is totally the side dish worthy of that title. You can even drag it out and say scru-ump-shoo-usss. Butter, cream cheese, bacon, cheddar, chives – it’s everything you love about a fully loaded baked potato, but without the starchy carbs to weigh you down. Even the most die-hard cauliflower hater will gobble…

Do the It Works wraps really work? A product review from a mom of seven with picture results

A few of my friends have started selling those magical body wraps that are supposed to shrink you up. I’ve always wondered if those things actually work or if it’s all just a lot of hippy-dippy boloney.  After having seven kids, my belly is sort of a train wreck. I’m proud of my body, and the amazing things God has allowed me to do. I’ve carried little lives, grown and stretched to accommodate…

10 ways being a mom is like doing hard time

Normally, I just share recipes. But lately we’ve just been eating the same old things and I’ve got nothing new to share. It’s kind of nice to be on cruise control in the kitchen. It frees me up to relax and think about other things. Just the other day I was in the bathroom and one of my twins was playing paddy-whack on my knees and it occurred to me that prison inmates might have more privacy…

10 simple Menu Planning Tips from a mom of seven

Menu Planning Tips from thecoersfamily.com

I started Menu Planning regularly for our family about seven years ago. My Nanny sat me down a couple of years prior to that and showed me how to make a list of meals and a grocery list to go with it. Her simple lesson has saved me so much time, headaches, and money over the years – I wish I could give her a thousand hugs for taking the time to teach me how to plan a menu for my family. Since…

No Pasta Salad

No Pasta Salad

Pasta salad is a favorite summer side dish in our family. Light, creamy, and cool – it’s the perfect side for grilled meats. We’re not really into pasta right now, since we’ve been enjoying losing weight on the Trim Healthy Mamaeating plan.  But with a few simple changes we were happily enjoying a delicious No Pasta Salad this past Memorial weekend. Scott and I have lost a combined 50 pounds in…
