Homemade Hamburger Helper

Do you love hamburger helper? Do you wish it was a little healthier? If you answered yes to those questions then keep reading. Thanks to Farmer Girl Gourmet I found the perfect recipe. I have changed the recipe slightly to make it less spicy for my husband.

As a new mom, I am always looking for something quick and easy. This has become a regular in our household because it is easy to make and smells delicious! Once you try this out, you won't want to go back! It is an easy recipe that is delicious for the whole family. 


1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Spray with cooking spray and add the ground beef. Brown until cooked through and no longer pink. Discard any fat.

Note: You can pre mix the seasonings while the meat is cooking. Not required but it seems to save time.

2. Add the pasta, milk, water, and spices and stir to combine. Bring to a boil and turn the heat down to simmer. Cover and cook for 10-12 minutes, or until the pasta is al dente. 

3. Add the cheese and stir to combine. Serve immediately and enjoy!

Moms and Babes Box Spring 2020 Subscription Box

Do you have a subscription box yet? One of my favorites is the Moms and Babes box - https://momsandbabesbox.com/. I get stuff for me and for my baby!

There used to be 3 box choices: moms, moms/toddlers, and moms/infants. They combined the three boxes into one. Now you get stuff for you, your baby, and toddler.


This box was definitely mom heavy for all you ladies out there. Whether you have kids or not, this box is for all the ladies. Give those extra baby/toddler items to your favorite mom.


The box is $59 one off or $53.10 per box when you sign up for a subscription. You can change your subscription at anytime. Bonus: you can get $10 off your first box when you subscribe to the Moms and Babes email list.

Moms and Babes Box Winter 2019 Subscription Box


Do you have a subscription box yet? One of my favorites is the Moms and Babes box - https://momsandbabesbox.com/. I get stuff for me and for my baby!

Starting this year, they only have one box. There used to be 3 box choices: moms, moms/toddlers, and moms/infants. At first, I didn't like this change but now that I have gotten the box, I am more than happy. They combined the three boxes into one. Now you get stuff for you, your baby, and toddler.

In my case, I don't have a toddler yet but I saved those items for when he is older!
Have a toddler? Some of the items might be too young but everyone has a friend or knows someone with a baby. The items make great gifts!

The box is $59 one off or $53.10 per box when you sign up for a subscription. You can change your subscription at anytime. Bonus: you can get $10 off your first box when you subscribe to the Moms and Babes email list.

Below you can see a video of us unpacking the box.
