Classic Chicken Patty Sandwich

Classic Chicken Patty Sandwich

Back in high school, there were certain days that I told my mom to skip the brown bagged lunch: cheese fries day, pizza day and chicken patty sandwich day! I don’t know what it was, but that giant chicken nugget smushed inside that bun was the best.thing.EVER! Didn’t hurt that they only cost 2 bucks either, but man, they were delicious. My new favorite market had some ground chicken on sale and for some reason I got the craving for a homemade chicken patty sandwich. Maybe it’s the fact that I am pregnant and once a craving is in my…

21 Day Fix Approved Recipes ~ Roundup!

Healthy eating has always been a struggle for me and my husband. It wasn’t till I started really understanding what healthy eating entailed, that it became second nature. About a year ago, I started 21 Day Fix from Beachbody that jump-started my healthy eating adventures. I learned portion control, the right & wrong foods for my body and how to cook healthy for not only me, but my family. So I am sharing with you today 10 of my favorite 21 Day Fix approved recipes that you (& your family!) will love. Even if you aren’t into the 21 Day Fix, these…

Breakfast Egg Muffins ~ 21 Day Fix Approved

I don’t know about you, but I am THAT mom who is always late. I have always been that way, and believe me, I try my hardest to get to places on time. It also happens to be my husbands biggest pet peeve. It is one of the few things we get into a fight about. So come the mornings, I am typically running around like a chicken with it’s head chopped off trying to get the kids dressed, fed, hair and teeth brushed, lunches packed and then getting myself ready. I feel like I run a freaking marathon by…

Easy, Peasy Split Pea Soup

Pun totally intended. HA! We are soup lovers in this house and since every member of the family has been struck with illnesses for the past couple weeks, I started whipping up some of our favorites. Chicken Noodle Soup for the little ones and Split Pea per the husbands request. He had one hell of a case of the Man Flu. (cue screams from women everywhere) Just kidding..kind of – he was really sick with strep throat and all he has been asking for was split pea soup. I had a major fail the last time I tried making it for…

Homemade Ranch Dipping Sauce

We are on a serious Ranch kick at the Anti Mom Blog household. Since I’ve been whipping up my own spices, I have been going just a tad over board. I guess it could be worse, I could be obsessing over my new found hobby of designer bag buying. But none the less, everything is coming up ranch in here and the family has been responding quite well. There are a few things that I can credit my husband for getting me to try: the T.V. show Friday Night Lights, cream cheese & strawberry jelly on a toasted bagel and dipping…

Homemade Ranch Seasoning

Homemade Ranch Seasoning

It’s time to ditch those store bought seasoning mixes and start making your own. Not only are they full of yucky, unhealthy additives, but by making them you can actually see what you are putting into what you cook. I’m sick of all these crazy ass additives that are put in those freakin’ packets, it’s just scary. I have recently started making my own seasonings and it has made some of my recipes actually 10x’s better. I’ve literally put this homemade ranch seasoning in pretty much everything -my turkey burgers, potatoes, dressings & dips. Even made a delicious slow cooker Ranch…

Chicamole Recipe

Holy moly, it’s Chicamole! You might be thinking I have gone off the deep end once again, but fear not! I am still semi-sane. Chicken + Guacamole = Chicamole. Aka my new favorite go-to lunch/snack. This hybrid of fresh, delicious ingredients happened by accident when I was on one of my avocado benders. I literally ate an avocado at every meal. This was one of those things that I said to myself after eating for the first time “why didn’t I think of this sooner?!” Yeah, it’s that kind of dish. I have topped pretty much everything with Chicamole – crackers, bread,…

Stuffed Turkey Cutlet – 21 Day Fix Approved

Back to school means back to routines and let me tell you, this mama could not be more excited about that! Following a schedule is one of those things I got used to after becoming a mom and I again find myself saying “Who am I?!” With the kids schedules getting back on track, both my husband and I can get our own where we want it. That means, meal planning & exercising. I have been trying out a bunch of new recipes this summer to add to the mix and thought of this bad boy after eating like shit for…
