Five Ways to Use Pesto This Summer

Five Ways to Use Pesto This Summer

Pesto is an excellent way to add flavor to meals. Because it is often a bit expensive, here are a few tips for using it all up in a variety of tasty summer dishes.

Valentine’s Day Pizza and Ice Cream Sandwiches

Valentine’s Day Pizza and Ice Cream Sandwiches

I'm working with Great Value brand products again and this time it's for Valentine's Day!   Last week I told you about two recipes my kids and I were going to try this weekend in honor of Valentine's Day and it worked out really well because we were snowed in over the weekend.  We had 2 feet of snow which is not normal for us.  It was fun and crazy all at once.  But the girls loved it and it looked so beautiful! But back to our baking!   They love making their own pizza's and the fact that they were shaped like hearts made this so much more fun.  I wasn't sure at first if the cookie cutter would cut through the pizza dough but it did and they even kept their shape when cooking.

13 Quick Beef Dinners for a Busy Week

13 Quick Beef Dinners for a Busy Week

  This is a busy time of year for families and who feels like going out to eat on busy evenings!?  I have a stash of quick beef dinners that I use this time of year and a lot of them contain beef for a few reasons.   First of all, beef is affordable and almost always on sale, my family will eat beef so that's a plus and it's so easy to make.  I like to buy a few pounds of beef at a time and brown it all ahead of time then freeze in one-pound bags.  Then I can pull it out of the freezer and put it in the fridge in the morning and by the time I'm ready to cook dinner, it's thawed and ready to go.   Then I can add it to my favorite recipes. You can substitute ground chicken or turkey for most...
