I always have the best intentions. I always want to be that Mom that brings cute gifts on Holidays for my kid’s teachers, make cute treats for my husbands employees etc…. BUT I always fall short because I simply DO NOT HAVE TIME!!! Ok…And we can admit that I am not the best baker/cook and I’m truly very non-crafty..

Can I just tell you how excited I am for my Valentines Day treat this year? It takes all of 5 minutes to prepare (minus the oven time) and is UBER delicious and fairly calorie free! My two year old and I had the absolute best time making this popcorn! It is so easy and quick to prep that it kept his attention the WHOLE time and the air popping alone was enough to entertain us for hours. I think we would have popped the entire container if we had a use for 200 quarts of popcorn!

30minutemeals

Ok, it’s confession time….I am not the best cook in the world. I LOVE to cook! But, I’m just not so great at it. The thing I am the worst at is coming up with a meal when I am short on time!  A busy night can often times result in a box of Velveeta or a sad little microwave meal…..(Please don’t judge!) Well thankfully, I have the beautiful, talented and amazing Lauren Allen from Tastes Better From Scratch as my fabulous sister-in-law to help teach me the culinary ropes. She is here today sharing her favorite [30 minute] meals from her blog to help us Busy Mamas out! She has 2 kids under 3 at home so she knows all about busy! She is by far the best cook, chef, baker etc…that I know! So get excited!
