I had a realization this weekend. I like to cook. But I get frustrated cooking and don't do it often. And this weekend, while eating some really yummy Spicy Bacon Mac-N-Cheese I had made earlier, I realized it's all my kids fault. Lol. I love those boys to pieces but they are mostly plain, bland food eaters and only like about 5 things. And who wants to hear "What's that smell? (insert whining voice here)" every night?
Sadly, a chocolate muffin from Cost-Co is one of their favorites. I can't entirely blame them. What kid could pass up eating basically chocolate cake for breakfast?
So I'm always looking for new ideas for dinner that I think my boys will dare to eat. One of my favorite websites to look is SixSistersStuff.com. I have tried a lot of their recipes (especially their slow cooker ones because my slow cooker is my total BFF!) and have not been disappointed yet.
Here are a few of my favorites:
BBQ Chicken & Pineapple Quesadillas
Slow Cooker Coca Cola BBQ Chicken
Slow Cooker Sweet and Sour Meatballs
But my all-time favorite is Overnight Peaches & Cream French Toast. You will gain 10 pounds after eating it but it is totally worth it!
Now that I'm drooling - I better go get dinner ready! Hopefully you'll find a new recipe to love that will make your life a little easier this time of year. And be sure to share your favorites below and make someone else's day a little yummier too!

Miss Amy: I love teaching kids and watching that "A-ha!" moment happen when all the dots connect and the light bulb goes on! There's nothing better!
