Family Meals Made Simple with #KraftRecipeMakers #shop #CBias

Twisted Tacos

Pizza Pasta #QuickFixCasserole

Each year it seems like I have less and less time to spend with my family after school starts. Between work, after school activities and homework I’m dead tired before the sun starts to go down.

Pico de Gallo Chicken Casserole with #CountryCrockStars

Everyone has a favorite, go to meal they prefer to make whether it’s opening a can of pasta, or an intricate 5 course spread. For me it’s a casserole; no one casserole in particular – just a 1 dish casserole. The beauty of casseroles is they can be as simple or as complex as you […]
