Hot Vanilla

Hot Vanilla | realmomkitchen.com

The other night I decided to give this recipe from Family Fun Magazine a try. It’s a twist on hot chocolate, making a hot vanilla drink instead. Now I didn’t add the cinnamon. Plus, for the whipped cream, I had the spray stuff in the can in my fridge, so I sprayed that on top... Read More

Tuna Noodle Casserole

Tuna Noodle Casserole | realmomkitchen.com

Growing up, my only experience with tuna was mixed with some mayo and pickle then put on bread with lettuce. While dating my husband, he introduced me to tuna mixed with miracle whip then placed inside a grilled cheese sandwich. As far as I know, I have never had tuna casserole in my life, until...
