Rustic Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe

Chicken noodle soup really is good for the soul, and the common cold. This rustic recipe is a beautiful, heartwarming, and comforting meal to enjoy all year round! September 8, 2016

The summer head cold is real. It hit my family with a vengeance this year. Everyone in my house caught it and we were all miserable. The problem with an entire household getting sick is that no one is able to be the caretaker yet somehow, groceries still have to get purchased, laundry still has to be done, and everyone keeps asking me for my chicken noodle soup.

I love the back to school photos I’ve been seeing in my newsfeed this week, don’t you? It makes me realize how quickly time flies by. I’ve got three years until I send my toddler off to kindergarten but I am well aware that these years are going to feel short. She will be attending Mother’s Day Out twice a week this year (yay!) so that I can take on more blog work and some family photography clients so for the first time ever, I get to make school lunches! Yay! I’ve been scouring Pinterest for some ideas and I have even created some of my own which I’ll share soon.

A Slow Cooker Pot Roast Recipe

A Simple Slow Cooker Pot Roast - My family's favorite pot roast recipe. It has simple, wholesome ingredients and it will have your loved ones returning to the dinner table again and again. Ode to the crock pot!August 22, 2016

We moved from Dallas to an Amish town in rural Ohio about 1 month after we got married. We were only there for about a year because my husband’s business project came to end. It was a rough year though and I was homesick a lot. However, one good thing did come out of it . . . slow cooker pot roast!

In hopes of making the most out of the harsh cold weather during my first winter up north, I cooked a lot of pot roasts. Through these recipe trials and an even more trying winter, I finally came up with a slow cooker pot roast that works for us. It’s a simple recipe but it turns out great every time. It has had my hubby returning to the dinner table for about 5 years now so it must be worth sharing.

Recipes with Honey

We are honey lovers in the Pilgrim house. I learned at an early age that honey makes everything taste better. I used to watch my Dad put it in his cereal every morning and now I do the same. I am not a fan of the sticky little fingers that honey leaves behind but my toddler lets me know she needs a wipey by saying,"Sticky, Mama. I sticky." It's just so darn cute! So in honor of sticky fingers everywhere, we bring you some recipes with honey from our featured food bloggers. If you're here to find inspiration for mealtimes, please pin away and if you're a blogger, we'd love for you to link up your latest work so we can share it. Have a super sweet week!August 17, 2016
