As a self-proclaimed “foodie”, one thing that I always associate Fall with is comfort food. Warm and filling food that just hits the spot. This time of year, I love breaking out my crock pot and adding new twists to classic comfort food recipes. While I’m not using my crock pot today, this recipe has an awesome kid-friendly (and approved) twist on a comfort food classic–the grilled cheese.

Grilled Cheese is one of those foods that just always sounds good, and I don’t think that I’ve met anyone who doesn’t like some form of grilled cheese. It’s such a versatile food, and you can pretty much customize it any way you want. I thought that it would be really fun to use one of my son’s favorite things, waffles, instead of bread to create a really delicious bacon grilled cheese sandwich.


My son has recently become quite vocal about wanting to help me in the kitchen, and I try to make things as kid-friendly as I can in there so that he’s able to. Whether I let him stir a bowl of random ingredients or assemble his sandwiches, I think it’s important for him to learn his way around the kitchen early so that when he’s older he can make some simple things by himself. Plus, I love that he wants to spend time with me because I typically slave away in the kitchen alone.

He already regularly requests Kellogg’s® Eggo® Mickey Mouse Homestyle Waffles in the mornings (this is probably our 10th box since we found them in store if I’m being honest–they’re just so easy to pop into the toaster), so he was super excited to see that we were having them for lunch. I think that any fun shaped food instantly makes kids more willing to try food, so these definitely pass the test of picky eaters.



Kellogg’s® Eggo® Mickey Mouse Homestyle Waffles
-Thick Cut Bacon
-Yellow American Cheese (or whichever you prefer)
*Optional* Tomato Soup, for dipping



This one is super simple and quick–perfect for really hungry kiddos
-Cook your bacon using your preferred method (to save time, I used the microwave).
-Set bacon aside on a paper towel to absorb excess grease.
-Toast 2 waffles in toaster.
-Assemble your sandwich, Waffle, Cheese, Bacon, Cheese, Waffle (or however).
-Using a skillet on medium heat, add in butter or non-stick cooking spray and then add sandwich.
-Brown on both sides, turning occasionally to avoid burning, until cheese is melted and gooey.
If you “accidentally” made any extra bacon, you can eat that now.
-Cut in half (or don’t), and enjoy!

Kid Approved!

Delicious News! Eggo waffles and pancakes now have no artificial flavors and colors from natural sources. Which y’all know is super important to me. Eggo® Mickey Mouse Homestyle Waffles (and some other awesome varieties) can be easily found at your local Walmart, in the Breakfast Freezer aisle.

  • These didn’t photograph as well as I wanted, but they were insanely delicious. 
Baja Chicken and QUESO stuffed Bell Peppers. 🤤🤤 I cooked two chicken breasts in a little bit of chicken broth in the crockpot—seasoned with @goyafoods Adobo Seasoning, onion and garlic powder, chili powder, and pepper. High for 3/4 or low for 6. 
Then I began by caramelizing some onions in my pan, added a bit (a lot) of minced garlic and sautéed until fragrant. I added a can of tri bean blend (this was kidney, black, and pinto beans but you can use your fave) and a can of corn drained and rinsed into the pan. Seasoned all with onion and garlic powder, as well as salt and pepper. I added my shredded chicken and a jar of my favorite Queso to these. 
After cutting the tops off and cleaning the seeds out from inside my peppers, I spooned this mixture into each and sprinkled with cotija cheese. 
Bake them at 350 for 30-45 minutes or until the cheese on top is brown and bubbling. *You can boil your peppers prior to this so they’re soft and not super chewy. 
I served them over Mexican Rice (also from Goya). These will be on the blog soon. But I wanted to share it since it was super yummy. ■ ■

  • Perfect Saturday Family Lunch. 
We tried out @baddaddysburger for the first time today and it did *not* disappoint. Jacob got the Bad Ass Burger, which is a 10oz beef patty with buttermilk fried bacon on top. It comes with horseradish mayo, but he subbed for original. 
And I got the create your own (giant) salad—with chopped romaine, red onions, hard boiled eggs, black olives, grapes, shredded cheese, croutons and fried chicken tenders; with ranch on the side. Seriously delicious. 
Their fried pickles were noteworthy—coated in a seasoned batter and super tasty. Our server told us that the fried deviled eggs were really popular as well, so that’s on my to try list. 
We didn’t try their milkshakes or banana pudding today because we were just so full, but I can’t wait to go back.

  • My photo dump rambling of a weekend recap is live on the blog. I had so much fun with these ladies, and I swear I’ll stop talking about it eventually. 😂 
Shout outs to every single place we went that accommodated such a large group of loud women, all with cameras out. 
@noelle_nashville / @makeready_nashville provided us with THE most delicious dinner Friday night, where this photo was taken. (I think that I may take Jacob there for Valentine’s Day). 📸: @ellie_kayphotography

  • Wow. FIVE YEARS.⠀
While we’ve been together for much longer, marriage is so much different. And I definitely think that getting to the five year mark is a feat in itself. ⠀
Today on the blog—I’m sharing a few, five to be exact, of the lessons I’ve learned over the course of the last five years. (Click the Link in my Bio to read). ⠀
Being married to someone and in their space almost constantly, you learn a lot about a person...and I honestly feel like I picked one of the best. He’s my best friend and he is always in my corner. He supports me unconditionally, even if I’m not believing in myself. ⠀
Spoiler Alert: It isn’t always Sunshine and Rainbows, but Marriage isn’t supposed to suck. ⠀
If I could give one quick piece of advice it would be this: Marry someone who just gets you. Someone who sets your soul on fire. ⠀
I’ve said this many times, but I knew almost instantly that I was going to marry my husband. ⠀
What is the best piece of marriage/relationship advice you’ve ever received, and what is the worst? ⠀

  • If you had told me a few weeks ago that I would have been brave enough to meet 30+ bloggers and women who I looked up to and who inspired me, I would have laughed. 
When @katiemcrenshaw created a small and tight knit community of creators, I joined because at the time blogging was my only source of income, and while I do make money from it often, I always felt like a bit of an imposter in this group of women who just seemed to do it a little *better* than I did. 
At first, I felt like I didn’t quite fit in...I kept to myself, I gave advice where I could and took even more advice and tips from that group. 
When we planned for this weekend in Nashville I was so nervous. I was sure no one would want me there. (No idea why...these women had no reason to think that. Just my own anxiety and self confidence waivering). I was wondering if I even deserved to go. I had convinced myself I wasn’t even going to, but then I thought of all of the reasons that I should. 
And you know what? 
Every single one of these women, who I look up to and felt like I knew just from watching their stories and talking to them in this community, every single one of them welcomed not only me but everyone who came. These women were exactly how I thought they would be, and completely exceeded my expectations—just truly awesome humans. 
No one compared followings. No one made anyone feel any less. No one was better than anyone else. There was a seat at the table for everyone... I went into the weekend uncomfortable and nervous, and ended it dancing and singing at the top of my lungs with this beautiful and amazing group of women that made sure we all felt included. 
My favorite part, and I mentioned this in my stories as well, was that everyone felt the same as I did! No one wanted it to end. And I feel like I just gained some really amazing friends to not only support me in life, but in this blogging career as well. It was truly a weekend for the books. 
This is the kind of thing that can happen if you commit to just showing up. 
Thank you, ladies. For the fellowship, for the laughs, and for letting me show you around my city! 📸: @arynhinton and @verbalgoldblog
