Kasey here, as we continue on our journey of healthy eating I am always trying to come up with new recipes that my family will love. Last night, I made Apricot Chicken with broccoli and asparagus and it was amazing!! This recipe was inspired by Olive Garden’s Venetian Apricot Chicken, however I have made several adjustments to the recipe to make it easier to prepare.
Apple Cinnamon Freezer Pancakes Recipe
Jamie here! Today is National Pancake Day, so I thought it was a good time to remind you that pancakes are a great way to use up those apples and bananas that are starting to go soft! You can make a big batch and freeze them for easy school morning breakfasts
