Oven “Fried” Onion Rings with a Creamy Dipping Sauce

Posted by on Oct 25, 2018 in blog, blogs, recipes, Uncategorized | Comments Off on Oven “Fried” Onion Rings with a Creamy Dipping Sauce

Happy almost weekend, Mamas! I don’t know about you all, but in my household, football Sundays are a big deal. Usually it involves hours on the couch, raised voices (because we all know how to play football better than the professional players, of course), and lots of junk food. I have been slowly replacing the chips and dip for carrots and ranch, and the pizza with some hearty chili, but there is still a feeling of missing something else. So today I went out of my comfort zone and tried a new spin on the old classic of onion rings. See, if I have too much fried food, I tend to get an upset stomach. So today I oven “fried” these bad boys (aka just baked them but...

Making the decision to go organic is a big one, and we applaud you for that!

We have compiled a list of tips and suggestions that we hope will be helpful during this transition, enjoy! Take Baby Steps Step One: Decide you are going organic. Step Two….where do you even start?

Hello Mamas! If you have been following along on our Instagram this week (follow us at @MamaJessFounder) then you have noticed we have been having a #GrainFreeWeek!

Three Cheese Spaghetti Squash

Posted by on Oct 1, 2018 in blog, blogs, recipes | Comments Off on Three Cheese Spaghetti Squash

  As the busy mamas that we all are, nothing is more luxurious than a hands-off dinner that is not just simple and delicious, but also involves minimal clean up! While I originally named this the Twice Baked Easy Breezy Three Cheesy Spaghetti Squash(y), we can keep it as simple as the recipe and just call it “Three Cheese Spaghetti Squash”. Spaghetti squash, in my opinion, is one of those magical vegetables that is healthy, tasty, extremely easy to cook, and a bit fun to prepare. The other thing? It’s a great alternative to pasta dishes. (Yes, we know, who could replace the holy grail of pasta? We can, and so can you. Get excited.) Now that we are over the...

Homemade Chicken Tenders

Posted by on Jun 18, 2018 in blog, blogs, good meals, recipes, Uncategorized | Comments Off on Homemade Chicken Tenders

These chicken tenders only took 84 tries before they were deemed ‘perfect’ by both me and the test group of kids. Arduous? Yes. Worth it? Most definitely.  I wanted a recipe that was as quick and easy to make as possible, but didn’t sacrifice on crunch and flavor. We tried a few methods; the standard three step dredge, a flour-egg-flour dredge, and even a ‘toss everything in a bag and shake it up’ method that some swear by. We also tried out various types of bread crumbs; panko, traditional and a delicious gluten free option made from crushed chickpeas.  The Dredge Method: The traditional flour-egg-breadcrumb dredging method...
