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.

  • Another fun Sunday afternoon at Board and Brush Nashville. I had so been looking forward to this day with two of my closest friends. It was such a good time catching up with them and working on these projects that I didn’t really care to take the “perfect” pictures. I just snapped a few and enjoyed my day with them. 
How was your weekend?
  • This one goes out to all the haters who tag me in memes about my overuse of garlic. 👀

  • A Peek into Our Saturday Afternoon and Family Day at my husband’s job.⠀
This is a yearly event that they put on for all of the families and it’s amazing! Lots of rides, prizes, food, and fun treats. We had a blast. ⠀
I may have went overboard with the free burgers today. I’m a sucker for a really good burger off the grill. Anyone else? ⠀
Full Disclosure: My Ennegram 6 came out hard when Grayson wanted to ride the Ferris Wheel.⠀
I was almost hoping that 1. We could talk him out of it, or 2. My husband would be too tall to ride it with him. I was so nervous about how he would react. ⠀
What if he tried to get down?⠀
What if he was so scared and I wasn’t up there with him?⠀
But, I learned a lesson today. ⠀
I have to learn to trust my boy. He *knew* he wanted to ride it, and he loved it! ⠀
Slowly loosening my reigns on him. Reluctantly... 🤣🤣⠀

  • Today is #WorldMentalHealthDay. I didn’t always openly share about my struggles over the years with my own mental health. I always steered the conversation towards how important it was for anyone struggling to reach out, ask for help, share their story, whatever they felt comfortable doing. Ending the Stigma.⠀
But me? Oh no, I was to embarrassed to admit that I was also struggling. ⠀
I never really noticed a change in my mental health until *after* I became a mother. Post-Partum (and situational—my husband and I were just in a bad place financially, in our marriage, etc) Depression really got the best of me after I gave birth to my son. I slept all the time, picked stupid fights with my husband, and at times just genuinely didn’t want to be alive. Thought that I was a horrible mother. Thankfully after struggling for what felt like forever, those feelings went away. ⠀
Going into my second pregnancy and remembering just how badly that PPD had gotten, spiraled me into a new feeling—anxiety. And that feeling hasn’t really gone away. ⠀
I have really really great days, more good than bad and I am so grateful for that. But there are days where I feel my overwhelm and anxiety physically crushing me. Being able to speak up about it, communicate my needs to my partner, *and* find support and solace in wonderful women who are going through the same has been my saving grace. ⠀
Sure, Instagram is often filled with really beautiful curated images—and don’t mistake my words here, I love and enjoy scrolling these beautiful feeds; but it’s also important to remember that it isn’t always beautiful and well planned all of the time. There are real people behind these beautiful photos. ⠀
Life can also be messy. Embrace the mess. ⠀
(Inspiration for this post today comes from two beautiful Moms that I follow and love, who consistently advocate for Mental Health Awareness- @thegarciadiaries and @arynhinton). ⠀
Scroll all the way through for a silly outtake of the first image. 🤦🏻‍♀️ Oh, Sawyer. Lol. ⠀

  • Do you have a house full of snackers? #AD Whether you have a toddler or a preschooler @beechnutfoods Toddler Snacks (their Fruity Oat Bars specifically) are some of our favorite Grab N Go snacks! They contain only 5 *REAL* Ingredients and no artificial preservatives (Whole Grain Oats, Raisins, Dates, Sunflower Oil, and Dried Strawberries or Bananas—depending on which you get). The kids absolutely love them, and I feel pretty great giving them these whenever they ask for one. 
I also love sneaking Beech-Nut​®​ Naturals purees into their food to make sure they’re getting enough servings of veggies a day too. 
What are your kid’s favorite snacks? •
