Yes, it’s actually a post about MEAT! It’s not something I’m very proficient at cooking, and mainly we eat some form of chicken…but since I have learned how simple it is to make London Broil, I think we will be having it more often.
Homemade Brownie Larabars

- 1 and 1/3 cups pitted dates
- 1 tsp vanilla extract

If you are popping over from Pinterest, Welcome to Makin’ it Mo’Betta! This is a popular recipe for good reason…it’s so easy to make, and kids love it! (At least mine do) Feel free to look around, and consider following me on any of my social media outlets for more easy recipes.
You’ve probably seen these casseroles floating around for a while – Bubble Up Pizza, Bubble Up Enchiladas, etc. I decided to give it a try since it was so simple to throw together, and totally kid-friendly! With the girls involved in so many activities in the evenings, I need meals that are quick and easy to get on the table. This is one we had when the hubs wasn’t home, since this is definitely not a low carb meal. (for a low carb pizza casserole, you could try this one)
Bubble Up Pizza
- 2 cans (12oz) golden layer buttermilk biscuits (Pillsbury Grands! Jr)
- 1 jar (15oz) pizza sauce *I used this easy homemade sauce
- 2 cups mozzarella cheese
- your favorite pizza toppings – cooked sausage, turkey pepperoni, peppers, mushrooms *we had mini turkey pepperoni and Canadian bacon
- cooking spray
Verdict? The kids loved this! I thought it was pretty good too, just not very calorie friendly. I think I’m going to try it with rolls (like frozen Rhodes rolls) next time and see how that goes. It would be less fat than the biscuits. I’ll let ya know! I mixed everything up before basketball practice, then baked it when we got home, so I had a hot meal on the table in about 30 minutes! We had a salad to go with it. Quick and easy!

On Tuesday I made a quick stop at The Fresh Market grocery store. It’s pretty awesome compared to the grocery stores near my house, so I was like a kid in a candy store. Even my 9 year old was thoroughly impressed – but, she was a kid in a candy store…with the huge display of candies, chocolate covered goodies, etc. I picked up just a few items (and lunch) but they have sparked some serious cravings. And the best thing to do for cravings is SATISFY them – otherwise, you’ll obsess over them, consuming everything else in the house and still will be left with that unfulfilled yearning, that gnawing sense of NEED in the pit of your stomach…..oh….sorry, got carried away. That’s probably just me that OBSESSES over things. So anyway, back to my purchases. I picked up this lovely jewel –
