20crockpotrecipes

By contributing writer, Amy I have a lot of things on my plate (figuratively speaking), so I've not been doing a very good job of putting things on my family's plates (literally speaking). I've gotten into a deep rut when it comes to menu planning. I've been uninspired and...well...lazy. All too often, I plan boring meals because they seem easy.  Then, I ditch the boring meals for even Continue Reading

How to make a perfect hard-boiled egg every time tutorial with pictures and video. | IntentionalByGrace.com

Eggs are some of the most nutritious foods available, and my family goes through dozens of eggs a week! When we did our Whole 30 Challenge, eggs became even more of a staple to us. Thankfully, we love eggs, and one of our favorite ways to enjoy eggs are hard-boiled. We'll dice them up over a salad, make them into an egg salad sandwich, or just eat them halved with a little salt. Even my Continue Reading

Simple DIY Hand Sanitizer for When You’re Out and About

simple-diy-hand-sanitizer_edited-1

I'm not a germaphobe. I think dirt is good, and I like to keep beneficial bacteria around. I believe these things strengthen the immune system, which is especially helpful as we come upon cold and flu season yet again. Needless to say, I'm not running around wiping everything clean 24/7, rubbing hand sanitizer on my children's hands at the drop of a hat, or refusing to enter the public domain Continue Reading

Baked Chicken Pasta: Super Easy Freezer Meals

Baked Chicken Pasta

By contributing writer, Victoria As we head into fall and the days become super busy, it's always a good thing to have the freezer loaded with some pre-made meals, or meal starters, to make dinner time prep quick and easy.

This post is by contributing writer, Jane. When my husband and I were still dating, we made a fun discovery: we both loved sweet potatoes! I mean, really loved them. We'd munch on sweet potato chips between classes, order sweet potato pancakes at Denny's, and make sweet potato casserole just for fun. I still squeal a bit when I find a new sweet potato recipe. I squeal again when I find Continue Reading

3 Herbal Iced Tea Recipes_edited-1

I grew up drinking sweet iced tea made from your standard black tea. And when the sweet tea pitcher ran out, someone was sure to throw a fit. Sweet tea was a part of life, and it wasn't until I went to college that I discovered not everyone drank tea the way I was raised to drink it. Some people had the audacity to drink their tea unsweetened, and even still, others drank their tea hot with Continue Reading

Thirteen 20-Minute Fish Recipes {You Could Make Tonight} | IntentionalByGrace.com

  By contributing writer, Jane I'll be honest. I didn't know how to cook fish (and make it taste good) until about three months ago. Before that, my fish repertoire consisted of tuna sandwiches and way overcooked frozen salmon. I was completely intimidated by the idea of buying and cooking fresh fish (and definitely doubted I could make it taste good). As a result, fish didn't Continue Reading

Homemade BBQ Sauce

A very simple homemade bbq sauce recipe. Great for summer bbqs! | IntentionalByGrace.com

I cannot bring myself to buy BBQ sauce in the store. It's expensive to get the kind without high fructose corn syrup, and we just can't find one we love. Therefore, I decided to just start making it myself. I've toyed with several recipes and finally landed on one that I keep making time and time again.   Continue Reading
