I’m Nicole!

The main purpose of this blog is to help out families who receive WIC. It can be intimidating trying to figure out how to use up all the milk and food WIC participants receive, especially if you’re a little uncomfortable in the kitchen. When I first received WIC years ago, tons of food went to waste (like beans and sweet potatoes!) because I just didn’t know what to do with it or how to cook it. That almost never happens anymore now that I know how to cook and meal plan, so I hope I can help others! WIC-approved ingredients will be marked with an asterisk (*).

If you don’t receive WIC, these recipes are still great low-cost, healthy options. It doesn’t get much cheaper than beans, oats, eggs and fresh veggies. 🙂

I love to cook for my family, and the recipes I post are all real things that I cook often for my husband and our two (about to be three!) children. I’m not a foodie, just a real person feeding my real family the best real food that I can. Many of these recipes are stupid-easy and that’s because home-cooking is stupid-easy. It’s not complicated and it doesn’t have to take a bunch of time and effort. Feeding your family can and should be a joy!
