  • Hi Emily! I’ve been watching your channel for the last few months and love it! I have a 3 year old who is a very picky eater and it’s so hard to get him to eat vegetables especially! However, he saw me watching this video the other day and was so interested when you were making the green monster smoothie so we made it together and he has been drinking it daily since! I just wanted to say THANK YOU so much for sharing that with us!:)

  • Remember when Clara Peller (Wendy’s commercial) asked us, “Where’s the Beef”? I’m gonna channel her (sort of) and ask, “Where’s the veggies?”. Should we assume veggie sides with these meals or are these the whole deal? Sign me,
    Just Curious

  • I love homemade pizza, I have a great recipe for herbed whole wheat pizza dough, I use my bread machine and freeze the dough for when I need it. I make my own pizza sauce using tomato sauce or cooking down my tomatoes. I do not like store bought spaghetti/ pizza sauce.I will be checking out you recipes, I am new to your channel.

  • We make taco soup all the time too. It was a huge hit at our small group last month. I make mine pretty much the same but instead of ground beef I use chicken.

  • Tricia and I make Taco Soup, Enchilada Casserole (with homemade enchilada sauce), Pork Verde over rice, Pizza Chicken, AND Grandma’s homemade Mexican rice! You can get all of Tricia’s 5 Ingredient recipes for these wonderful easy dinners here https://tricia-thegoyers-com.ck.page/3872f56ff3?fbclid=IwAR0l3Op0qQD4XlK2W1aLUSXN-bz7gHtxAsWGBxa89LuCTLxqRZUXMfkxCAE, plus Tricia share from her heart and experience based on over 30 years of her motherhood journey. Tricia knows stuff. Listen to Tricia:)

    If you want to have your own GRUMBLE FREE YEAR for your family Tricia is also going to lead a free Grumble Free Year Challenge starting after Thanksgiving https://tricia-thegoyers-com.ck.page/0f6619b54e?fbclid=IwAR0SpZqz1p6ZV3elThGGEdnOf90oD8vCd6ZIIgIrueGEIah8nwwfJz8gIU0

  • home made pizza is really good, my family loves it too!! buttttt, you’ve never really had pizza until you’ve had Jersey pizza!!!��������

  • 1 lb of meat for ten people. 1.6 Oz of meat per person LOL no thanks I like a small amount of meat per sitting 4Oz. Most people like 6 or 8 Oz portions of meat. 2 dollars of cheese is another joke. Click bait how to starve people 10 people for ten dollars should be the title.

  • This was great, thanks, I been tryin to find out about “healthy family meal plans for the week” for a while now, and I think this has helped. Ever heard of Iyariaw Palatable Muncher (just google it )? Ive heard some amazing things about it and my colleague got great success with it.

  • Cause of corona I have VERY limited ingredients because everyone is in same stocking up so my local grocery stores shelves are wiped out

  • I loved this video! It was so nice seeing you with your friend Tricia here, Jamerrill. She is very nice, pleasant personality, she looks, and sounds easy to get along with. She reminds me of layed back people here in San Diego. I know yall must have had fun filming this together! And it was nice to share another person’s perspective on things.
    Maybe you could do this more often, collabing/cooking with other vlogging mothers.
    And you looked so cute, Jamerrill, next to Tricia. You seemed like a little sister, compared to her. Do you and her do Bible studies together?
    I’d like to try both of yall’s recipes on this video. Especially the Grandma’s Mexican rice!! That was a hit in your home, Jamerrill! I’m not surprised that little Benjamin wanted more, because even he knew what’s good tasting!!
    He’s such a little cherub, it would be hard to refuse him anything!:)
    I hope that you and your friend Tricia, got to continue having fun, and fellowshipping, even after the filming of this video.
    Now, let me try to start watching her videos too, because I didn’t know about her until you had her as a guest, Jamerrill.
    I hope you are working on another video, because I’ll be waiting.
    Love Ya,
    Angie XOXO ❤

  • OMG!!! I just found your channel and subscribed. And I thought I was Wonder Woman with the way I do my meal preps!!! My kids are grown!! Girl, you have all those kids and you still manage to do it all!! I pass my cape to you!!!! ������

  • Amazing recipes! Thank you for sharing! In fact…I’m sure no-one would mind if in a while you make another video like this. Love your channel, btw:)

  • Love the video! I have three questions about the pizza chicken. Number one is does it need to be cooked in a instant pot? and number two is can the chicken be frozen?  Does it have to be thighs? Sorry for asking stupid questions I am teaching myself how to cook. I just wanted to know.

  • Hi hope all is well. U dnt kno me but if you don’t mind giving my video a thumbs I’d appreciate it so ������ pls and thanx in advance! much https://youtu.be/Q54Ay2Cl910

  • Watching this like “yeah my fussy eater will 100% only eat the nuggets” ���� but I’m definitely going to try these recipes thank you xx

  • Absolutely love this video! If you have any more videos along this line it would be very very appreciated! My kids will love these, probably all of them.

  • I’ve heard that a childs portion is as big as their Hand. If they want more, great but their stomachs are very small. Always try and sit while eating. That was my rule.

  • Please can you do another video like this as my fussy eater has eaten all the stuff I have tried from this video! Amazing choices!

  • Almost every tasty video I watch has to have some meat and cheese thing going…I am starting to wonder is meat and cheese an American thing?

  • You do NOT need to add pasta water to any dish youre servong with pasta. It serves mo paint but to turn a nice creamy texture into thin soup. Stay educated my friends

  • I really enjoyed this video, watching the both of you in the kitchen and listening to the stories, while I was cleaning up my kitchen, it was as if we were all hanging out in the kitchen keeping eachother company��

  • We had a ‘no thank you bite’ rule that our children had to adhere to. If they didn’t like it, they didn’t have to have it again, but many times they DID like things….

  • Hi Emily! I loved this video and it definitely inspired me to start making creative lunches again for my son since I’ve been at home with him while working full time. I love how you provide easy tips for parents without judgement. I have been watching your videos on and off since I started breastfeeding my son who is now 2.5! I loved your videos for potty training too and have been recommending them. I just want you to know how much I appreciate you taking the time to create all this thoughtful content. It is so helpful to a mama like me who (like every other one out there) needs some new ideas during challenging times! I also would love to know where you got those silicon cutting mats you were using in this video. Do you have a spot where you link other products like that in your house? Thank you so so much!

  • Love your meal ideas. I’ve just started freezing some meals. I have copied you in the emma bridgewater design. I have gone for the heart design as I have a pink and grey kitchen. I have bowls and mugs and plates. Super dooper ������
    BTW, how is your ankle now?
    Poor you Emily. ��
    I fractured my femur last May and had 3 screws in. Its still healing!!!

  • Kat Moter oh yeah can’t forget the cream corn lol my favorite was after everyone ate the canned peas I would add a lil milk and drink the left over juice lol oh man it was delicious never heard of yer daughters favorite sounds interesting!!!

  • This was the video I watched when I was looking for the ways to cook cheap yummy meals. That’s how I discovered you channel. So this video is the one that helped me to find your channel.

  • I like Kilbasa in mine too, I also diced up potatoes, onion, celery, and a little bell pepper the last time I made 15 bean soup, yummo!

  • awesome…don’t know what it is bout cornbread but I have been make a LOT lately (homemade-as Jiffy has sugar)…pour a few cups of beans over it YUMMM

  • LOL, I drive 472 miles twice a year to Salt Lake City for Ikea. I had one picky eater that would only eat strong flavored food like broccoli and hot peppers. He’d eat spicy foods. Anything else, wouldn’t touch. He grew up on broccoli and chicken tacos LOL! It wasn’t until he was 19 he’d eat other things like salads. He started cooking for himself. Now 29 he is healthy as a horse. Carries a really good weight. I just didn’t worry about it, couldn’t shove it down his throat. I don’t have a huge family but I have one of those HUGE bowls. It’s just easy to mix in and cleans up like a dream.

  • I have a hard time with beans… they bother my kidney and bloat me out. That said I do buy a very good tinned veg bean and my Dad used to make a bomb ham & pea soup…. neither of which cause me any issues. Any suggestions as to the other beans that will not be anything but delicious!

  • I’ll bet you could cook the pork for that recipe in the crockpot & then just shred it to save time cubing the meat & cooking on the stove.

  • IKEA is 2hrs from without traffic…there always is city traffic/craziness and with bathroom stops I would say 2h45m minimum!
    Worth the drive if you plan on getting multiple things because the shipping is crazy!

  • lol, I’m so not the demographic for this video, I’m just a college student trying desperately to find literally anything to eat that isn’t chocolate and chips… sadly none of these would work, either because I’m too fussy, or because I lack the skill to make them:(

  • I heat my refried beans up in the microwave and it makes it so easy to spread! You probably know that and were far too busy to get it done, but I thought I’d give you my little time saving tip!

  • im almost 12 and im bored of all my meals that i make, like sandwiches, cereal or just unhealthier things, so i found this and its so easy and i have every ingredient u have, i gotta try this in the morning thank you!!

  • Amazing ideas I m eager to try them all out. My girl doesn’t like veggies, you are a lucky mama of well eater boys. I don’t quite agree about the honey in the muffins. I think it can’t harm if it’s cooked. I wouldn’t leave it out. Any one knows about this?

  • I love this. Omg. My son is starting Kindergarten today. I am trying really hard to feed my kids healthy meals. But with a full time job and school, it’s hard to find time to cook. These meal prep videos are a life saver in my family. I just felt like expressing my gratitude. #Your lovely fan:-)

  • My brother cuts up brocolli up really tiny and he told his son since he was tiny that it was green sugar as soon as his son knows it’s veg he ‘doesnt’ like it but once it’s cut up really tiny he doesn’t notice

  • Hey, you seem to be liking German food a lot, have you ever tried good ole fashioned German potato soup? It’s very tasty and cheap and might be right up your alley.

  • Thank you for this video… it is so sad how disrespectful some feel the need to be in their comments. I’m sure you knew while creating this that not EVERY child would eat everything and that people can certainly swap out or use different ingredients. I have 4 kids and picky or not I expect them to try different, healthy options. When one person said their kids won’t even eat lettuce or salad? ������ wow! Thanks again… I will be trying 3 of these in my next 2 weeks of meal planning ����

  • Thank you, you seem like a real nice guy. Just one concern here. There are way too few legumes and vegetables in these meals. Save now, pay later in doctors bills. The extra two dollars can make quite a difference. Cheaper still if you grow them yourselves. Makes for a fun family activity.
    My suggestion: add beans to the enchiladas, serve a mixed salat next to your breakfast casserole, prinkle diced red bell peppers and a can of corn on top of half of the pizzas, maybe some mushrooms and a bit of shopped up leek or onion on the other half. Your bean soup is fine already! Your spaghetti pie would benefit by 2 zucchinis sliced in half and cut a quarter of an inch thick and a lot more onions, some garlic (and a tablespoon of both basil and oregano). If you don’t like zucchinis you can instead have sliced cucumber on the side to dip in the spaghetti sauce. Yummy. And better for the tummy.
    Wishing you and your family blessings and a great Christmas season.

  • Hi Christine, love the video….yummy looking meal:) I will be trying this…but I think to shorten the baking time I’m gonna cook the potatoes in the microwave some and see how that works… love to save some time..lol Thanks for sharing!!

  • I have just completed my goal of stocking up on freezer meals. 20 suppers plus 10 pounds of taco meat, 22 quarts of spaghetti sauce, and ten pounds of pre-cooked ground beef. I have been watching you for many months now and have been inspired by so many of your videos. I’m a mama who works outside the home and also a pastor’s wife so life is always busy. Thank you for sharing your life and your family with us. I am amazed how you are able to do so much and how kind you are to your kiddos. Keep drinking that coffee and cranking out great videos!

  • I really don’t understand what makes a meal “kid friendly” or not.
    All of these can be eaten by kids and adults and the foods in other videos that aren’t marked as kid friendly seem like kids would enjoy them too.
    At least I know I would have when I was a kid, so whats the difference?

  • Oh my goodness! I just watched this video for the first time and Hailey (sp?) has grown so much in the past 2.5 years! Also, the dance party was super cute!

  • The scientifically based use of these superfoods date back to the era of Prophet Muhammad along with other historical uses of plant products. Prescription of a large number of herbal foods such as dates, pomegranate, olives, figs, grapes, and black seeds was successfully proposed by him.

  • I have a couple of really ripe bananas on the kitchen counter…see pancakes in my future. Also love roll-ups with deli meat or tuna/chicken salad (skip the cream cheese, lay down a layer of lettuce leaves, add salad, and roll). Pasta salads are a “given” here, in the summer. I like your version.

  • 2:39 Pizza? Burger? HOT DOG!? A combination of my two favorite foods into a HOT DOG!? Although I do want the tomato, onion, lettuce into this thing. No pickles.

  • I have 9 kiddos. These are great, all but the bean soup. I do not like beans at all. Never have. But, that’s ok. Also, if you give me your address, I can send you a can of cajun seasoning and an awesome hot sauce made in the area I live in.

  • I made something similar to your spaghetti pie this week, but with macaroni noodles and ground rabbit. I’ll have to try it with spaghetti noodles, too. We are also pizza snobs here. We love our homemade pizza more than any restaurant we’ve ever had it at. I’m definitely going to try the enchiladas, too.

  • I made the most epic Spicy Pumpkin ��, Ginger & Coconut Milk soup tonight. I put a large carrot, courgette, 1/4 red onion, veggie oxo, a large red chilli �� in with roasted pumpkin & acorn squash. Season to taste with soy sauce & black pepper & omg it’s epic!

  • Thanks a lot for these ideas, my family loves all of these types of food. It will be Great to add some healthy flair to them during the week.

  • Awsome my kids would love almost all of these. I’m going to add a side of veggies to every dish. Trying to get them to eat more vegetables daily.

  • Oh my, the Mexican rice is exactly the recipe I found years ago in a library book. I copied down the recipe and make it often. The brownies no the rice makes all the difference. These all look very delicious.

  • Can you do more kid friendly meals I have picky eaters…. it’s so hard being on a budget and cooking something that everyone will eat…

  • Love, love these healthy and delicious plate dinner, lunch etc. Nice one Domestic Geek always bringing new and updated ideas, one love and nuff respect lady ��������������️����������������������

  • I love this! My grandmother/abuela lived with us for many years as well ❤️ My abuela was an amazing cook; I wish I had recorded her making her famous dishes. I miss her dearly �� I’m still not great at flour tortillas but I’ll get there �� If you still have your grandparents with you, cherish them!

  • Great ideas! I always need an idea for something different but easy and affordable. Thank for sharing. I’m off to find the recipe playlist!

  • Thank you so much for these videos! I am on a tight budget but refuse to feed my family processed garbage and your videos give me a lot of ideas. Also, are you a former marine? I ask because of the glad in the background

  • Ugh I wish my kids were more open to beans. I come from a home where rice and beans were a THING a dang good thing. My mom is Hispanic so we had lots and I love it but my husband is Irish and so therefore my kids got some of his Irish Gene’s for potatoes�� I like them occasionally but they prefer them over rice and beans for sure. Lol

  • No seasonings in most of these!??�� The “taco soup” is actually fiesta chili and tastes much better with ground turkey(crazy ik). Not sure why y’alls didn’t have much juice. Don’t drain any of the cans and use regular diced tomatoes instead of Rotel for the youngins who don’t like spicy��

  • Awwwwwh now I wanna cook shepards pie and pastry, egg, sausage and cheese bakes awesome ladies I needed this motivator video… ����

  • All so practical and great choices! And just like you said, no boxed food! Love this. Thanks so much for all of your tips, keep making great videos to share with all of us. I especially love the cooking and recipe videos. You and your wife are awesome! Thank you so much for sharing.

  • I just love how helpful all your videos are. I could learn from each something new. Thank you. I dont have much tome for meet up with other moms and exchange, so those kind of videos are really great for me.

  • Thanks for the tips. I noticed you use the same chopping board for meat and raw veggies(spinach). It is a good idea to seperate them.

  • Such unhealthy food cream and cheese in almost every dish. No wonder the Caucasian kids (& adults) are all obese and over-weight.

  • I’ve been trying to watch this video since it came out, cant get more than two minutes in before one of my babies needs me. Even at 10pm lol. Love your videos, you keep me smiling even when my life seems like chaos. ❤

  • Hey Brad so happy to see your channel coming along bro. Since we moved to our farm in may we’ve had to endure extremely slow Internet at dial up speeds so I have not been able to continue my YouTube channel. So bummed. All God’s will hey. I am now able to watch videos ago yay.. love your video’s. God bless bro

  • Made this pancakes today, the flavor are good, what I didn’t like is that they wasn’t fluffier enough but that is my preference. Next time I will add more oat and baking powder.⭐⭐⭐⭐

  • Where can you et hamburg for 2.00?  I’m going there.  Your melon seeds went in the mail Thursday.  Would you give me a shout out when you receive them?

  • This was one of my favourite videos to date! Real life! Great ideas, great recipes!
    My BIG stainless steel bowl is in the cupboard upside down on top of my biggest slow cooker, behind which is my instant pot, next to which is my bread machine. This sound like anyone else’s cupboard? LOL

  • How do you get that hair thing to stay in your hair. I have one and my hair will look like crap and that thing falls out, every time.can we get a tutorial? Thanks, love the food vids �� Misty

  • My 6 year old won’t go near a vegetable. I made chocolate cupcakes with grated zucchini and he somehow found out. You couldn’t even see the zucchini. My 1 year old daughter will eat anything though. At least I have one good eater.

  • I dont know what kind of kids you know, but none that I know would even look at this food.. I’m grown and I’m not sure I want any,

  • I make this, but instead of just salt and pepper, I sprinkle on a package of ranch dressing seasoning. It is the bomb!!! Even my picky 6 year old eats this!!

  • I mean, I don’t know about fussy kids, but this 25 year old fussy eater just found some new food to try! Thank you because I am soooooo stuck in a rut with food right now!

  • I am so excited! I have made every mexican and spanish rice recipe I could find for my picky eater, by george this might be the one! So girls cross everything y’all got to cross and keep us in your prayers, lol! Love, HUGS & Blessings, Marilyn


  • Loved the ideas. My only concern would be the tortilla pin wheels becoming soggy from the fruit balls. Perhaps wrap the pin wheels. Thank you.

  • Funnily enough, my 4yo is the one who gobbles most things up happily, while his brothers (11 and 8) are whining that dinner is yucky and trying to bargain their way out of eating. �� I might try the fish cakes, just to mix things up. Do you serve them with any kind of sauce?

  • I just tried out this recipe with my family and the boys LOVED it as did me and Geoff! It was super easy, the only thing that took some time was cooking the bacon but other than that it was just throwing it all together. It cooked perfectly too. The chicken came out falling apart with the potatoes perfectly cooked and the bacon stayed crispy! LOVE LOVE LOVE this recipe! Thank you so much!

  • FUssy eaters lol, I think kids would be fab eaters if they ate any of that. The worst thing is my husband and I are most definitely not fussy eaters

  • Hey. I am a new youtuber and I love a lot of your videos, in fact being in the travel agent I particularly loved the video from the villa in Lanzarote. I was going to niche down my videos to either travel or music (or both) but then I thought I really would prefer not to niche down. I would love to know what was your first video? I would love to watch it as I would love to see how successful youtubers like yourself started out. I have just subscribe to your channel, its great. Keep up the great work.

  • Everyone who thinks they have fussy eaters, you should try my kids! Green drinks? NOOO. Cheese, nope. Peanutbutter and beanpaste? Hahaha Nice try.

  • I heard Tricia speak at the Teach Them Diligently Homeschool Conference in Nashville in March. She is amazing! How fun that she is on your channel today. ❤️

  • I don’t have the ingredients, the ability and the time and my mom would say these are very unhealthy, so i’m watching all these recipe videos just to make myself hungry

  • U are such a good cook, the first vid I saw is the iced tea and in the first minute I realized how good you are so I subscribed and now I’m ADDICTED

    Keep it up

  • can you stop repeating recipes and do something new

    by seeing the start of the video i get to know which recipe it is because you have repeat almost everything

  • You know you have a fussy eater when they won’t eat meals for fussy eaters.��
    My 6 year old is autistic and lives off about 5 different foods.��

  • Yum! Everything looks amazing and what a great collab. So fun to watch, reminded me of hanging with my girlfriends cooking and chatting. Thank you for all the great content you are always putting out ❤

  • Hi Jamerrill! I’m new to your fan base. I discovered you last week and have been binge-watching your videos. I signed up for the free cookbook and tried the Mexican rice, it was SO good! My family is still small (just one baby so far) so we’re still eating off of it. I used some to stuff peppers with, and I froze some to turn into a cheesy casserole later. Thank you for sharing your wisdom, faith, family and life-views with the world! We need more Jamerrills in this life ��

  • Quick tip for the Mexican rice (if time permits): you can dice the onions, tomatoes and cilantro and sautee them first, then add in the rice to fry (brown) and then add in the broth. the fresh ingredients make a huge difference and add a boost in flavor.

  • This is glorious, I have been researching “healthy meals for families of 4” for a while now, and I think this has helped. Have you heard people talk about Iyariaw Palatable Muncher (just google it )? Ive heard some great things about it and my co-worker got cool results with it.

  • These kids meal prep lunches look great. My children are older (they now have children themselves). However I think I would like all of these. I am going to give them a try.��

  • Thanks for the ideas Emily ����‍�� I made your sausage rolls with courgette, apple and a bit of lemon zest which worked really well!

  • Thanks a lot for the recipies, great tips for a future college student! And by the way, that’s a nice Iron Maiden beer bottle that you’ve got there on your shelf:D

  • We called it the ‘no thank you bite.’ Sometimes it backfired and my daughter one time threw up on her plate. �� the funniest part is that it was over salmon, which she now loves.

  • Wow that’s great. I’m gonna use them right away. Hopefully, they like it. I think this pancake is really good idea.
    Thank you always.

  • Oh I am so going to make those banana pancakes. Blow my mind with only 3 ingredients!!! Love your ideas as always. So colourful, healthy, appetising, easy!!:)

  • This is SUPER!Thank you.Tip:I’ve found that if I soak any beans or grain for 24hurs + or I get all the field dirt of off them AND they cook in about an hour.Keep up the good work

  • grew up with a family of 8 please tell me some one heard of Hamburg gravy over mashed potatoes!!! I make it when my kids come over they beg me to make it for them!! very cheap and easy!!

  • Folks, please stop rinsing pasta with cold water; put the sauce on the pasta, stir it & then let it cool. Sauce will not cling to pasta properly if you rinse it with water.

  • I can’t wait to cook all of it. My kids are going to love this especially with remote learning going on. Fun Food! �� Thanks for posting.

  • Yum,yum I’ve got to make that food it made my mouth water watching you and your friend make it, nice to see you all, love you lots xxx ����

  • Great idea on video. Enjoy the concept of Hispanic Food Choices. Love Love Love. Thank you both for a Beautiful Choice of Meals. I love Shrimp Cocktail Soup it is one of my favorites. Along with these other Wonderful Selections in this video. Yum �� ♥️ Mmmmm.
    Love Tamson ♥️ ����

  • Hi Jamerrill, Thank you for sharing your beautiful family, girlfriend, & party feast with us. Liam & Zion are especially thoughtful sons. Love & Blessings over the river & thru the woods! ❤����

  • My husband make Puerto Rican rice that’s even better than his aunt’s recipe! Lol side note I made your stuffed biscuit breakfast cups and everyone loved them!

  • Just watched this and I am making this in the next 2 weeks on a not so hot or humid night. (Have to watch the weather daily where I live because lately the weather has been all over the place and they can’t make up there minds if it’s gonna rain, t-storm or be sunny) but seems super easy, I always have all those ingredients (I will tweak it a bit, maybe with garlic) or even on a hot humid night try it on my husbands new flat top grill. My girls and husband would love this. Again seems super easy

  • I have a question for you…Can you freeze salad dressing? I have three bottles of Ranch that have an expiration date of November 15th on them.

  • Why have I NEVER thought of using the back of the spoon from the start to spread something? I have always scooped it out then used the back.

    Mind. Blown.

  • There is a recipe for the breakfast casserole that instead of using hash brown you use cubed up bread and the tougher the bread the better ( great use for leftover homemade bread).
    cubed bread, 12 eggs scrabble up, cooked breakfast sausage, squirt of brown mustard, cheese, onion and pepper saute, and some fresh spinach if desired.
    mix everthing together and put into baking dish and bake till its looking golden brown.

  • I love your mum Jemmerill. She is one sassy grandma.now we know where did you get your style. Miss my mum so badly. She passedaway in my teenage years

  • I am a vegan, and even I thought this look yummy, and can make a vegan version of it �� I am sick, so that’s the reason I have a marathon with all the videos I have not seen the last couple of weeks from you ������ Johanne, Norway ��

  • Hi Jamerrill!! Have you tried cheeseburger, taco and pizza stuffed shells?! You can do pepperoni and supreme pizza stuffed shells. Ground beef is the base for these. I think your family will love these ������

  • Hi Emily! I know why your frying pan has gone like that �� It’s the Fry Light. Something in it just ruins the non stick on your pan. I found out when I went to a Slimming World meeting (they use it a lot as it’s ‘free’ on plan) I wanted to share the info with you as you help so many people, maybe this will help you and other people too ��

  • I did the green wrap recipe for my 3 yo yesterday and she loved❣️ doing the protein pancakes this morning ���� thank you thank you

  • Hi Jamerrill Stewart I am starting a couponing/saving money/cookie /recipe youtube channel. I was wondering if I could have your permission on mentioning you on my channel. You been a great inspiration. I starting my channel in Dec 2019.

  • Just think if we had a friend to cook with, for every large family meal (I get it! Family of 11.) It would be so fun! Ty for this video.

  • I made the sausage rolls for my family tonight. They were soooo good! I’m a former chef, but my picky children never enjoy my cooking. These, however, they loved! Can’t wait to try the fish cakes next. Thank you!!!

  • Jameeeill my mom has one double the size of the 30 quart to make muffins and for when she makes burgers but she also has a 50 quart stand mixer she’s a bit of a crazy baker

  • Jamerrill! I love how you bring all your friends home for us to meet. Thank you for another source of inspiration, joy and blessings. Tricia is a gold MINE!

  • My can opener is possessed too! �� Fabulous video. I feel like I got to hang out with my girlfriends and am motivated to add something new to our menu. ������������

  • Hey gorgeous Domestic Geek, can you give us some fruit salad variation ideas and how to keep the salad fresh longest!! Plzzzz thanx������������������

  • I make rabbit meat enchiladas but I never thought about adding rice, genius! One good one I came across is oven baked mac and cheese with root vegetables. Basically you take two or 3 cups of diced vegetables (carrots, turnips, sweet potato, etc. whatever you have on hand). Parboil the veggies in salt water until fork tender mix with the mac & cheese, and a breadcrumb topping and bake at 350° for about 30 minutes

  • Everything looks delicious! I grew up in a family where we weren’t made to eat what we didn’t like, we had to at least taste it and that’s how I’ve raised my kids. Now I have two adventurous eaters who will try almost anything. ����

  • Can you explain draining meat to me and why you do it? I cant say I have ever drained meat in my life. Does meat in the US have a lot of fat and excess water added?

  • I’m not a huge fan of the collab videos with other people lol I just love you and your family so I’ll watch any ways to support you❤️❤️❤️

  • The true art of cooking! It’s been lost over the last 40 years. Eating truly can be less expensive if one would just learn how to COOK! Enchiladas are one of my favorites. My wife and I have been considering opening a mexican style restaurant. We’ve both been exposed to authentic mexican and tex-mex cooking for many, many years. In our area there are only a few “mexican” restaurants and they are trash as far as we are concerned but the people in our area eat it up because of “atmosphere”. They don’t even use proper ingredients.

  • This is awesome! I have 4 very hungry boys and they eat a lot. We are getting so close to being debt free and try to stretch the grocery money as much as possible.

  • hey, I was wondering if you can put in the description the links to the videos for some of these, will be easier and may get the traffic going in that direction since I can’t find them too easily others may not either, thanks! ��

  • man this is on point! i come from a family or 7 kids, my wife is from a family of 8 kids. im 27 and have our 3rd on the way, i dont know how parents did it but living is expensive haha.

  • …..hi brad…is the seed swap over with?….I got a confirm from you….I registered at your website with my gmail……looking for p.o. box number to send seeds to you……thx m.e.miller……

  • we have the 3 bite rule. and even my autistic son will try stuff. now he is 27 and has tried more different foods as he gets other 3 have tried all foods and love a variety. i used to be forced to sit at the table and finish my plate and i would fall asleep at the table and wasn’t allowed to go to bed. I vowed to never do that to my kids. i would put small amounts and if they liked it they could have more.

  • Groceries are so much more expensive here in Canada! We are feeding a family of 8 and our food costs us about $800-1000 per month. Time to think about planting a garden, I guess!

  • Love this video! I’ve probably watched it 10 times:) please consider doing a part 2 with new family friendly money saving dinners. I would love to add them to my collection. Thank you.

  • I missed these type of videos! I have a 18mo and I find myself looking more and more for ideas of what to feed him with! Thanks again, Emily! Xxx

  • Nice video but the recipes won’t work for a picky eater, at least not for my nine year old.

    The first dish takes too long for a single Dad.
    My kid loves, I mean loves ravioli but he took one look at the carrots and said “no way”.
    I couldn’t even get him close to the salad stating that he doesn’t like tomatoes, lettuce or salad dressing.

    These didn’t work for me.

  • That’s store bought sauce
    Homemade enchiladas sauce is made with dried guajillo chiles and other items definitely not the way she showed. Her way is a fast short cut and it’s just tamato sauce with a bit of season. If you want authintic I’ll give you my recipe
