You guys know how much I love to cook. I mean, obviously, I write about food and take pictures of it and share non-stop on the interwebs, right? Right.

The toughest time of year for me as a home cook AND food blogger is Back to School. You know, that crazy-hectic time of year full of lists and shopping and paperwork.

With not enough time to get everything done, and even less time to prepare meals, you need go-to recipes like this 30-Minute Taco Night to keep the family fed and connected.

So grab a few grocery items and blow off some Back to School steam with a fun-filled family fiesta.

Meatloaf is the ultimate go-to Mom Meal, isn’t it? Comforting and classic, meatloaf is always there for you when you need a meal idea. You are going to love our easy dinner recipe for Baby BBQ Meatloaf.

There are three things I love about this meatloaf recipe. 1-The individual meatloaves are perfectly portioned for quicker cooking. 2-They are perfectly seasoned with the zing of bbq sauce.

And 3-they are totally adorable.

Maybe I need to get out of the kitchen for a minute.

The back-to-school madness is starting to take hold. My house is messier. My lazy summer-time dream has been rudely awakened. My leisurely afternoons of coming home and preparing yumminess have been …let’s call it…unprepared.

I will not let the hectic back-to-school routine get in the way of making delicious treats. 

I will not let the hectic back-to-school routine get in the way of making delicious treats. 

I will not let the hectic back-to-school routine get in the way of making delicious treats.

Excited? Stoked? Giddy? Yes. Giddy. That’s the word I am feeling right now. Giddy about these Dr Pepper® Chicken Wings. And giddy with excitement because college football season is FINALLY here. Seriously, I adore football. It drives my family crazy, because I’m fairly vocal about it. (Fairly vocal = borderline obnoxious.)

I love everything about the game of football. The strategy. The pure luck. The wins, the losses, the drama, the tradition. I love the weather of the season, the school colors, the football parties of fall. And the FOOD.

When I first decided to start a blog, I had to pick a topic. You know, the one central theme that my blog would be about. It was a no-brainer for me. I was going to blog about football. Yep: Southern Mom in her 40’s Blogs About Football.

Drop the pastries, people. THIS breakfast recipe is real food. Wholesome, cheesy and protein-packed, our Turkey Vegetable Breakfast Bake will quickly become a family favorite. Mildly seasoned ground turkey, eggs and cheese combined with colorful veggies, this easy recipe tastes just like an omelet. (Without all the fuss.)

My favorite part? You can make it the night before to save time on your busy mornings. Just create, bake, and refrigerate.

Ok, wait…I lied. That’s not my favorite part.

My favorite part is knowing that my family is eating a better-for-you & wholesome meal they love.
