With summer entertaining in full swing, how about trying this delicious skinny meatball recipe to serve up easy turkey meatballs to your guests. These are great for kids, too.

Baking them in the oven keeps the turkey meat moist, and you avoid drying them out by over-cooking in a crock pot.

Last Wednesday, my husband and I picked our daughter up from school on her early dismissal day (1:05pm), and we all headed to Chuck E. Cheese's for a mid-week break. It really felt like playing hooky!

Wednesdays are usually one of our busiest days filled with school, after school activities, work, homework, laundry, etc.

My New Year's Resolution: More Salads

by Jillian Leslie on

Delicious salad recipes

I told my husband that 2014 is going to be "the year of the salad" for us. We are good at eating vegetables. David and I both love them (Lainey is another story), but we typically eat them cooked... sauteed really, unless they're Brussels sprouts, and then we bake them.

But it's starting to feel boring and a little too predictable. I believe it's time we seriously expanded our vegetable repertoire and for me that's expanding into the world of salads. But how? The problem is that when I think about lettuce and dressing, I'm just not that inspired.
