If you are searching for a kid-friendly fish and creamy pasta dinner with hidden greens that your kids will love, then taste the deliciousness. My kids love pasta and Mommy wants them to have plenty of protein and greens too! So, here is a recipe that keeps us both happy. Pasta is a go-to around our kitchen my kids would eat it for breakfast, lunch or dinner, every day, but I love my greens so there needs to be a little balance! This simple yet impressive, Baked Salmon and Creamy Parmesan Sauce with Pasta and Kale is a favorite in our household, however, because I like to limit my carbs I keep the pasta separate and only add it to the kid's portion. This is such a quick and easy dinner that will amaze you. So delicious, easy to make for your family, and can be made ahead! Simply pop the salmon in the oven to bake the day before you plan to serve it, and it is ready for you to add to the warm creamy sauce all in under 30 minutes.

Hello and welcome to my homeschool blog y'all! I am thrilled you are here to learn more about me and check out my homeschool blog! I love writing and can not wait to share with you about our homeschool journey, recipes from our kitchen and how to maintain a productive, healthy lifestyle. For about fours years I wrote monthly and dedicated a ton of time to my online retail website, but after the birth of our third child it led me to set aside that venture and focus on more important things - my family!
After taking a much needed break from my online retailing venture, I missed blogging and having that outlet for myself to write about our life and family. I decided to relaunch a new blog focusing on our homeschool journey but without the tedious work of running an online retail store! I know my blog and what I have to offer may seem like a needle in a haystack of so many professional bloggers who never cease to amaze me with their creative ideas and content. I will admit it is a little intimidating to think about how my little blog will fit into the world of bloggers. Just as anything in life we must remember that God has a specific plan for us and we will not accomplish that plan by comparing ourselves constantly. My hope is that you will find at least one thing that I share to inspire you in your own home!
Again, thank you for joining me and welcome! If you like what you see, I hope you will follow me on social media and subscribe to my YouTube channel once I get that launched as well!
I'm a former high school teacher now homemaker and Principal of Soaring Pine Private Academy. I am so very thankful to God for each that I am blessed to spend with my sweet family. I hope you enjoy my blog where I'm happy to share our homeschool journey from our home nestled in the woods, recipes and more!
