One of my favorite parts about spring is the whole brunch idea! You can enjoy brunch any time of year, but spring seems to be a popular time for brunch. I just think of going to church on Easter Sunday and then coming home and enjoying brunch with a mimosa.

Your whole family will love this brunch menu![Read more…] about Brunch Menu for the Whole Family

This instant pot sausage soup is hearty, healthy, and perfect for the winter months. I love using homemade bone broth in this recipe, but if you have store bought bone broth that works too. Pick out your favorite sausage for this recipe. I had just been to the local butcher shop in our area and got some nice Italian ground sausage, but just about any sausage will do. What I love about this recipe is that it makes good use out of the instant pot. You can leave the instant pot on all afternoon and have dinner ready when you get home!
The thing about this recipe is this – good food doesn’t have to be complicated. You can follow this recipe if you want, but the basics of this soup are quite simple. Good sausage, beans, kale, and tomatoes, mixed with a hearty bone broth, and you can’t go wrong. Add extra onion if you’re an onion fan, or extra garlic if you love your garlic like we do.[Read more…] about Instant Pot Sausage Soup with Bone Broth
