Create a healthy snack drawer for the fridge. Toss in pre-packed snacks to go for the whole week. Also, pre-packed snack bags/containers for the pantry with non-perishable things like pretzels, mixed nuts, unsweetened cereal, etc.
I LOVE mac-n-cheese! martha stewart's perfect macaroni and cheese: "no joke, this is the best macaroni on earth!" It really is-this is my go to, never fail, always impressive Mac recipe. Seriously delicious & special enough for Easter dinner.
When all else fails, make spaghetti. But not just any spaghetti. Million Dollar Spaghetti. Your family will think you slaved in the kitchen all day. It will be our little secret! I would use ricotta instead of cottage cheese ;
Blueberry Cream Cheese Cupcakes / Pastry Affair - these look amazing! I just checked out The Pastry Affairs website and found this great quote: "A cupcake consumed before 9 am is technically a muffin." LOVE THIS!
