Why homemade? Because you know what’s in the recipe, there are generally no weird words included – and in many instances it’s much cheaper. This doesn’t mean I don’t have a bag of frozen popcorn chicken on hand. My goal is to balance a mostly homemade life with those days when you don’t have time to do anything but preheat the oven. I generally try to put a homemade meal on the table 80% of the time. Busy kids and a busy life mean the family dinner table is becoming extinct. I think it’s way to important to a healthy life – so we eat together every night. I’m flexible on time, but i’m not flexible on participation, if you’re home, you’re at the table.

I finally got smart, asked them what they LIKED in trail mix, and started making my own. I dont even get the baggies back anymore….. It’s pretty straight forward – the mixture above has M&Ms, chocolate chips, >> Get the Recipe!
