Easy Dinners for Busy Moms and Families

In our household there is always some soccer practice or recital and outing going on, so when we get, I need to get dinner on the table pronto! Here are some easy recipe that you can throw together any night of the week.


 1 pound of ground beef

2 tsp Italian seasoning

1/2 tsp salt

1 egg

chopped onions

1/2 cup of breadcrumbs

 Mix all ingredients together and bake at 350 degrees for an hour. Serve with sides of your choice. We like garlic toast or some easy mash potatoes.

Here is something that is super easy and the kids can have fun with since you can personalize each "pizza" for individual tastes. If you like pepperoni, go heavy on the pepperoni, if you like peppers and anchovies, well, you get the point.

 Tortilla Pizzas

1 can of tomato sauce (pasta sauce will work in a pinch)
1 package of mozzarella cheese
toppings of your choice, pepperoni, olives, anchovies

Add sauce, cheese and toppings. Bake for 4-5 minutes or until desired color or crispiness. If you desire, cook the toppings desperately then add in altogether and bake.

 One Dish Pasta and meatballs

2 jars of your favorite pasta sauce
1 pound of ground meat (beef, chicken) seasoned with your fave spices
1 package of pasta
Parmesan cheese (optional)

Using a big pot, stir in the sauces, put on medium to low heat for 10 minutes. Shape seasoned meatballs into the pot and add sausage. Keep on medium heat for 20-25 minutes, stir occasionally. If needed add a little bit of water if sauce gets too thick. Add in your pasta and cover. Check on it from time to time to make sure all pasta is equally being cooked.  Give one last stir, check to make sure meat is properly cooked. Serve and top with Parmesan cheese.

Best ways to get rid of Mosquitos

If you are like me and live somewhere where there are tons of these little suckers, then you can feel my pain. Literally. I don't like using things that are chemically to spray on so I have to look for other ways to keep them away. Here is a solution that I have tried and it works perfectly. Lemon Juice. That's it. Simple lemon juice. What I do is pour some in a cup and put them by the windows or near the door. You can even put some in a spray bottle and spray some on yourself if you get a lot of mosquitoes. I was amazed at how they will keep away.

Here is all that you need:

Lemon Juice

Spray bottle

All items can be easily found on amazon (it's where I shop for everything!)

Busy, busy Mom

I have been so busy and it is so easy to forget the little things. Each time I say to myself just post some updates, something comes up and, well, here we are. The end of the school year is finally here and it may sound strange, but I have some free time now than I did during the school year which was keeping me busy with school functions, fundraisers, etc. Ahh....Summer is here. Lets see what's in store for us all :)


Fighting addiction and getting help

I have mentioned before that I do have a family member that is fighting addiction, everyone has their thing and his is alcohol. I was researching places and how they are able to get help and I have to admit that there are so many helpful resources out there and in our are that can help our loved ones. For instance, hydrocodone rehab and the site gives you full detail on how you can get help for that particular rehab. Being supportive and showing them that we care is so important as well as getting them the professional help that they need.


Guitar lessons Online

I swear this is the best thing ever. First let me say I respect any and everyone that can play, I am a beginner, well not even that, whats before a beginner? That's what I am haha. Any who, I learned the different kinds of guitars and if you want to take it seriously, you will need amt pedals at guitar center. I am so ready to be a bad ass rocker chick...well rocker mom chick, but you know what I mean. Once you get all the equipment you need, start the journey!

How's the weather in NY?

This is what I get asked when talking to family Well, it's cold and there's snow and its more cold, it sucks. But I always say that, I rather the cold sometimes to the brutally hot summers we have been getting. You really cant win and now the south is having snow, like maybe an inch of it and shut down their towns. hey who am I to laugh when we have the earthquake, it was pretty much the same deal, we are just not used to it!


Ready for Summer 2014

It is still cold, it's still winter and I am so ready to get that over with and welcome the Summer! We have had some pretty cold days here in NY even close to record breaking! I can not wait for the warm weather for a few thing, the kids love it and I am also planning on getting a playsets virginia beach for them to play in since we have other family members with younger kiddies. We have already started making plans on how we are going to spend the summer. Between spending some family time together and cookouts and more, we are sure to have a great time. We will keep ourselves cool with iced tea and other cool drinks. I just hope that it is not a scorching hot Summer like it has been a couple of years ago!


New Year, New Resolutions!

Ahh, so we have come to a new year, my goodness! 2014 already huh? Well I can say that so far, this year have been looking really great. I have a fabulous work at home gig that has been keeping me oh so busy! it is one of those jobs that you say to yourself that it is super worth it and do not feel like you are working for slave labor. I still get to do the things that I want to and will catch up on things that I have been slacking on. I love being able to look at my posts form so many years ago and see how much things have evolved. Kisses and Happy prosperous new year to everyone!


The gift of music

And I do not mean being able to play, I mean purchasing something special for someone who is into music. For instance I plan on getting one of my boys exciting rogue analog delay simply because it was mentioned, and also still brainstorming something else for my youngest. It is so important to make sure that your children enjoy their holidays even if you can't get them he gift they truly want, as long as it comes from the heart, its good enough!


Holiday Cookies

I love baking during the holidays and will be trying some new recipes and shapes this year, the only thing is trying not to eat them all! I always have to try and test each batch and make sure they are all okay, next thing you know, bam, 10 pounds later I am wondering what the heck happened! Not this time, I will try and refrain myself...hopefully!
