Road Trip Breakfast

Spring Break is upon us!
Our family took a road tip for our boys’ Spring Break this year. We left the house at 5am and had a 12-hour drive to Sevierville Tennessee for a week.

Additionally, to these Chocolate Chip Muffins, I also made a batch of Blueberry Muffins. With six of us, and an all-day drive, we powdered through these 24 muffins before lunchtime.

While on vacation we saw so many sights and went to so many fun stops. Our favorite was hiking near waterfalls and enjoying the sights near our cabin chalet in the hills near Gatlinburg. And the most amazing part, was we left 30-degree Wisconsin and enjoyed 70’s in Tennessee.

I made a cheesecake for my parents who watched our dog, Lucy, and used leftover filling to make mini-cheesecake bites for our trip as well. They were AMAZING with a dollop of Raspberry Jam from my sister, Jillian, who sent it from Alaska.
We had Alaskan Raspberry jam in Tennessee. And it was glorious.

I have not always had the skills to cook and bake from scratch. As a young wife, I bought every meal frozen or boxed and presented it to my husband with a flourish, believing myself a decadent cook. As our budget shrunk, and our family grew, I looked for ways to stretch our money to nourish our kids with the best for their hungry appetites. Hoping to find recipes and meals that they would love to eat. Through the last 5 years, I have learned so many cooking and baking lessons, and experienced many wins and failures. Come along with me on this journey as I share my recipes that work, how to make them on the cheap, and my tips and tricks to get my kids to eat homemade deliciousness! I will also share updates to our house that we have done in the last year since our move. With one income, we do most of the work ourselves and with amazing family and friends to help out, cutting costs but keeping style and money in the bank! I am a wife and mother of 3 boys and 1 princess. When I was a kid, I remember being asked what I wanted to be or do when I grew up. My response was, "a mom", and I am proud to grow up and be a mom to 4 amazing kids! Samuel is 11, Matthew is 8, Levi is 4, and Elliana is almost 2. We have been blessed to have kids who love to explore foods, to try new recipes, and enjoy helping us around the house. With 4 kids, you better believe they help clean! My husband Tyler and I have been married almost 13 years. We love our kids, we love outdoors, camping, canoeing, grilling, watching movies, and just hanging out making memories. A few years ago I gifted Tyler with his own "menu" book, where we write meals and foods we have loved to eat. Weekly our family decides what our meals will be and I make up a grocery list with what we need. It literally is my favorite chore! I love to shop, so shopping for food on a budget is my biggest win! Thank you for taking the time and visiting my site, Subscribe so you do not miss a post! Keep coming back to hear about new recipes, updates on our home, fun times with our kids, and how to make homemade deliciousness! ~Monica
