"When I think of what a quality meal means to me, I imagine all of us sitting around the table sharing about our day (or maybe what’s on our travel bucket list). Quality also means an easier, simpler meal with less cleanup (and one that is nutritious and all three kids like). This Buffalo Macaroni and Cheese recipe is something new and unique I made recently that the kids really enjoyed!"

From her latest post:
"My girls love baking with me, so together, we made these amazing Peanut Butter Raspberry Oatmeal Breakfast Muffins. They are delicious, healthy, with the addition of Dole Frozen Raspberries (chosen for their convenience & captured at the peak of ripeness) they are always fresh no matter the season and is a great economic value. All you do is pick your portion and freeze the rest to prevent waste. We like to make these muffins on the weekends and freeze half of them, that way we can pull one out the night before for an easy and nutritious breakfast."
Angie McGowan of Eclectic Recipes

From her latest post:
"To celebrate June Dairy Month, I headed down the dairy aisle of the market to find some snack-inspiration. The dairy section allows me to take a few shortcuts to create easy snacks or appetizers as it includes convenient grab-and-go items – grab some refrigerated hummus, tzatziki, and your favorite feta cheese and you’re halfway to the finish line."
(1) It literally takes less than 5 minutes to pull everything together
(2) It's surprisingly tasty even though it's healthy.
(3) You can adapt this to work with what you have on hand."
