PB&J Waffles With Aunt Jemima Waffles – Easy & Delicious

PB&J WafflesDid you guys grab your Aunt Jemima Waffles? I am all stocked up and should be set for a while. While my guys love these for breakfast, they are also a great snack and can be used for an awesome lunch or dinner too!

My oldest son takes a PB&J sandwich to school almost every single day. I would need a little variety but that kid loves his PB&J. Now, I don’t mind making them but there is the occasion when I run out of bread. I think some days – that’s what Jake hopes for. You see when I run out of bread, I use waffles!

If you’ve never tried it – you really have to make one. I’ll admit that I’ve made them for myself occasionally too ;-)

While our BOGO sale has ended you can still grab a great deal at Publix with the coupons available.

Sloppy Joe’s Tacos + Great Deal On Manwich At Publix!

Sloppy Joe's  Tacos
What are you cooking for dinner this week? How about whipping up some Sloppy Joe’s Tacos? Yep…those cans of Manwich can be used for more than just the sandwiches that we all know and love!

To say that my guys love Manwich is probably an understatement. I am not sure if they love the taste or the fact that  a Sloppy Joe somehow gives them the OK to be messy at dinnertime. I am sure it’s probably a little of both! In all honesty, I love Manwich too. It tastes great and it makes dinner prep so simple.

You guys know that I like to shake things up a bit so rather than the standard Sloppy Joe sandwich, every once in a while I’ll opt for making Sloppy Joe’s Tacos. This recipe is just as easy as the sandwich version. You simply add a little cumin to give the sauce that south of the border taste. Then you just trade your bun for taco shells. Add in your favorite toppings and dinner is on the table in 15 minutes!

What’s great is that we have a Manwich sale plus a matching Publix coupon. That way you can put together a standard Sloppy Joe’s dinner, plus you’ll have an extra can that you can use to try out the Sloppy Joe’s Tacos recipe too! Here’s the deal in the current Advantage Buy flyer –

Manwich, 15 to 16 oz, 4/$5

Eggplant Mini Tacos – Perfect Way To Get More Veggies In Your Kiddos (+ High Value Dominex Coupon)

Eggplant Mini Tacos

My boys are at the age where they are so picky! What happened to my sweet little babies who would happily eat all those delicious mashed veggies and clean their plate without any complaints?

Many years ago I started requiring that my boys must at least try everything on their plate. For those non-preferred items, they are to eat a bite to match their age. Jake is almost 9 and Jeb is 7 so that’s now a lot of bites. I am not trying to be the mean momma, but if I left it up to them, they would likely stick with about 5 foods each. They are still growing boys and need a variety of foods that include lots of fruits and veggies.

Rather than the typical dinner time drama, I opt for ways to make my life easier. I have the boys help me with meals. They are very proud of their cooking accomplishments and are more likely to eat foods that they have helped prep and/or cook. They are now masters at peeling carrots, pulling off broccoli florets and oiling kale. Guess what…they’ll gobble those veggies at dinnertime since they were the ones that “cooked” that part of dinner.

I also do fun foodscapes for meals whenever I can. After all, they are still little and if making their food look more fun means they eat it, I will happily put in the effort.

Another great way to get my boys to eat their veggies is by recreating some family favorites with a twist. You guys know we are huge fans of all the Dominex products. They make the most amazing foods from eggplants! I have told you guys before how much we love their Veggie Fries and Angel Parm Bites and also the most amazing Eggplant Cutlets. These cutlets make some delicious Eggplant Mini Tacos! My boys love them and I smile knowing that I am getting those veggies in.

Dominex-eggplantAll you have to do is bake the Eggplant Cutlets according to directions, then score in the middle so that you can easily fold them into a taco shell shape. Then it’s just a matter of filling up the ‘taco shell’ with my boys’ favorite fillings. Sometimes I do chicken and other times I use ground beef…there’s no wrong way to stuff them. Plus, they are the perfect size for their small hands.

What’s great is that my husband loves these too. If you don’t have kids or want a more sophisticated meal, the options are endless. You can use portobello mushrooms, goat cheese, avocado, spinach, fruit salsas, barbequed meat, red cabbage or whatever you love. The Eggplant cutlets are the perfect vessel for a delicious meal that’s packed with the good stuff…with a nice healthy dose of fun!

Right now you can print a big coupon that will get you a great deal on any of the Dominex products. The base coupon is $1.50 and you can boost it all the way to a $2 coupon for awesome savings:

Grab your coupon and give this recipe a try. Of course the Eggplant Cutlets are phenomenal for a quick and easy Eggplant Parm that comes together with almost no effort. I think you’ll be pleased with any of the products. We love them all here at my house!

What’s great is that right now we have a great coupon that means awesome savings too!

Potato Leek Soup With Bacon – Easy & Delicious With Farmland Bacon

Potato Leek Soup with Bacon
I have to admit that I am not a big fan of cold weather, but the one thing I do look forward to during the chilly months is a bowl of warm soup. Today I thought I would share one of my favorites – Potato Leek Soup with Bacon. This is a delicious soup that is so easy to prepare. I promise even if you don’t consider yourself a pro in the kitchen…you can whip this one up very easily!

The combination of the potatoes, leek and bacon is just wonderful. I will admit that I can eat this whole pot of soup by myself! If you also enjoy leftovers, you might consider doubling this recipe so you’ll have plenty for your lunch throughout the week. You’ll thank me later. ;-) While this recipe is definitely a little heavy on the calories, it is really so delicious and worth a splurge on a cold day.

This recipe is also very budget friendly. You don’t need a ton of ingredients and you can even get a great deal with the Farmland Bacon coupon in the Winter Family Savings booklet.

Farmland bacon is slow smoked over real hardwoods for maximum flavor. For decades, they’ve taken pride in perfecting their curing and smoking technique – a difference you’ll taste in every delicious bite. We love this bacon and I am always happy to add a pack to my fridge.

Holiday Fun With Food Using Dominex Angel Parm Bites + High Value Coupon

Dominex Parm Bites FrostyThe holidays are here and soon my kids will have a long holiday break from school. I looked and my boys are off for three weeks this year! I’ll have to make sure I have lots of lunch and snack options on hand!

You guys know I love the holidays. I try to do fun themed meals and treats for my guys. They grow up so fast and I try to enjoy it while I can. Soon, they won’t want to spend as much time with me in the kitchen…so I have to make the most of it.

Like most kids, my boys would choose those less-than-healthy items if given their choice. One of the ways that I can get more fruits and veggies in their diet is to opt for delicious products from Dominex. My boys get great taste and I get the satisfaction of knowing that they are filling up on the good stuff. With products like the Dominex Angel Parm Bites, I can give the boys healthy eggplant in a delicious bite size treat that they love!

These bites combine the ingredients of Eggplant Parmesan in a bite size morsel. Eggplant, mozzarella cheese and marinara sauce are covered nugget-style with Dominex signature Italian breading. These Bites are an excellent replacement for Chicken nuggets or pizza bites and are a great way to have fun with veggies.

Dominex Parm Bites Rudolph

Some days I serve these with a little bowl of marinara for dipping and then other days we create fun foodscapes that make lunch and snack time a blast! Since it’s the holiday season, I thought I would share one of our favorite ways to munch on Dominex Parm Bites. As you can see, we create snowmen and reindeer that are almost too cute to eat. Add in a broccoli tree and some ranch and you have a fun and delicious meal that the kids can’t wait to eat!

For those of you that don’t know too much about eggplant – it is a healthy eater’s friend!  One cup has only 35 calories and 10 percent of the recommended daily fiber.  Eggplants are high in copper and potassium, making them a great energy booster.  They are also high in bioflavonoids and other antioxidants.  Eggplant makes a healthy and satisfying meat substitute. Learn more about these products on the Dominex website.

It doesn’t take very much effort to add some healthy fun to mealtime. Check out my “Under the Sea” foodscape using Dominex Veggie Fries. No matter which you serve your kiddos, they are sure to love it!

dominex parm bitesAlso, be sure and grab your coupon and pick up some Parm Bites and Veggie Fries next time you shop at Publix. The base coupon is $1.50 and you can boost it all the way to a $2 coupon–awesome savings!

If you have a fun foodscape that you do at your house, snap a picture and email it. I am always looking for fun lunch/dinner options for the boys!
