I’m here to tell you that if you think you’re falling short as a mom, you’re probably doing much better than you think and you’re kids haven’t noticed one bit!
I’ve been delivering meals to the boys in the fields this week because there isn’t enough time for them to take a break. I drive there swathers while they eat.
Payson was calling me saying he was starving to death (it was 3:00) and I was hurrying. I had starting making cookies and that’s all the farther I got on that project. But it was way past lunch time so I ditched baking the cookies and packed smoked cheeseburgers (insanely tasty), chips, and a huge back of cookie dough!
They were thrilled! Like, more excited about the cookie dough than they would have been about cookies! 🍪
So don’t sweat the small stuff! It all works out in the end!
It's farming season and that means we're pretty much working around the clock. I'm always needing another on the go breakfast or late night dinner. These Fried Egg Grilled Cheese Sandwiches are the BEST!
My boys love them, and if I fry the bacon ahead of time in a big batch it takes less than 10 minutes to make!

We just started harvesting our hay this week and that means our lives are crazy! I'm delivering meals to the fields and these Pressure Cooker Lime Verde Chicken is on the menu! Once the meat is made I can use it for tacos, burritos, nachos, etc.! It's so versatile and EASY!

Rhubarb Cobbler is exactly what summer should taste like! This version is also called “rhubarb dump cake” because you pretty much dump rhubarb and pie filling in a pan an sprinkle cake mix over the top. Don’t forget the vanilla ice cream!
You guys! These are my very favorite sugar cookies ever! You just can’t go wrong with coconut lime! And... since they’re bar cookies there’s no rolling, cutting, and time consuming frosting! You need these in your life!
Well, summer is here! I LOVE having my kids home so I’m in Heaven! I love that we’re all gone for lunch, but I do need a few quick and easy ideas. Dill Pickle Grilled Cheese Sandwiches are perfect! Quick! Easy! And the kids love them!
A few weeks ago Branson took the cutest girl to prom! Justin happened to come in while Branson was getting ready. I love this picture of the two of them! It’s a huge blessing when you’re kids aren’t just you’re kids, but you’re friends too!...
What are you grilling/smoking for Memorial Day? When I smoke pork roast I like to cook quite a few so we can use the leftovers through the week. Pulled Pork Nachos are the bomb! OMG! Leftovers never tasted so good! Plus, lunch has never been easier than this!
We ran out of ice cream one time and you’d have thought we were living in an emergency situation! I quickly learned to make the best creamy No Churn ice cream! It’s seriously the easiest recipe ever! You can flavor it anyway you want, but I’m telling you this mint grasshopper version is out of this world!
Are you looking for the perfect side dish for Memorial Day? This is it! Watermelon, Blueberry, and Feta salad had all the best flavors; sweet watermelon, juicy blueberries, and salty feta! It’s pretty too!
We always stick around and work on the farm. My boys are very patriotic and we enjoy talking about how grateful we are for military personnel.
Of course, the other big deal is grilling or smoking something delish! I’m telling you smoked baked beans are the way to go! They’re incredibly flavorful and couldn’t be easier! If you don’t have a smoker, no worries simply throw them in the crockpot or in the oven! They really are the perfect BBQ side dish!
