How to Cook Bacon in the Microwave

Jamie here!  I truly love bacon, but I rarely went to all the bother of cooking it until I learned how to cook bacon in the microwave.  It’s so much less messy, and you can cook just a few pieces at a time for an individual breakfast, sandwiches or to crumble over a salad.

I’ll admit, it seems like  it won’t work – I was a non-believer at first too!  But it’s come out crispy and delicious every time I’ve made it :)  Add in the fact that you won’t have to clean your entire stovetop afterwards, and I’m completely sold.

Jamie here!  I may have mentioned before to you that I am not a morning person.  My kids know this – and yet they still suffer under delusions that I might get a wild hair one morning, hop out of bed early and whip up a batch of pancakes before they leave for school.  The poor dears.

Homemade Whole Wheat Pancakes

Kasey here, as my family continues our quest to eat healthier I am always looking for new recipes. Since we are staying away from boxed processed foods as much as possible, I have prepared many of our favorite meals from scratch. I’ve been looking for a good homemade whole wheat pancake recipe but have had a hard time finding one that sounded good.  As I was perusing recipes online this morning, I found one that looked delicious and I just so happened to have all the ingredients on hand. I modified the original recipe a bit and can’t wait to share my version with you.

My kiddos have raved about these pancakes all day long! They said they were the absolute best they have ever had. Although I still think that it’s hard to beat Cracker Barrel’s pancakes, these turned out delicious! [Read more...]

Jamie here, being frugal oftentimes means being creative – making do with less, and making it into more!  I told my husband that if I could get a gold medal for only one thing – it would probably be the ability to “Make Do” when I don’t have something that I need. :)

Case in point – the Tinfoil Heart Pancake Molds I showed you recently!

Coffee Filters are one of those handy things that have lots of different uses – here are 10 of my favorite creative uses for coffee filters!

Valentine Heart Pancakes – Using DIY Tinfoil Shapes (A Tutorial!)

I wanted to make something sweet for my family this Valentine’s Day – and I wanted that sweet thing to be chocolate chip pancakes before school.  But not just ANY chocolate chip pancakes: I wanted to make them in the shape of hearts.  Just one problem…. I don’t have any heart-shaped pancake molds or even metal cookie cutters to use.   I did have some plastic heart cookie cutters though, and I figured I could somehow MacGyver heart molds out of tin foil.   I set out to experiment and did a trial run with my all-too-willing preschooler.  Here’s how to make them!

Tutorial: Heart Pancake Molds from Tinfoil


1) Start with a plastic heart-shaped cookie cutter – even if you just have one, you can make several molds.  Do these a few days ahead, and you’ll be ready to cook up some love come Valentine’s morning!
