Welcome!  I’m so glad you are here.  Coffee After Kids was created to share my family approved recipes.

I love getting to know my readers so please feel free to leave comments, email me, or follow me on social media.    


Hi!  I’m Brandy, the human behind Coffee After Kids.  I am a wife to a veteran husband, mom to a 4-year-old boy, and step-mom to a 13-year-old boy.

We have three dogs!!  A male lab/shep mix, a female American bulldog, and a male lab/mini pin mix.

We currently homeschool our oldest and plan to homeschool our youngest next year (preschool).  I always wanted to be a teacher when I was younger so I’m finally fulfilling that dream.

For fun, my husband and I like to game in our spare time. Right now, I’m playing The Sims4 and he’s playing other various games.  I’m obsessed with The Office, Gilmore Girls, and The Great British Baking Show.


I love to cook but learned everything I know from just reading, watching videos, and trial/error.  This means that most of my recipes are simple dishes that anyone can make, no matter what their cooking skills.

I meal plan every week for my family.  As a mom, we know things are always changing so I don’t always stick to it 100%, but when I do, it saves me time, money, and calories!

Family Dinner Time

We have made family dinner an important time for our family and I hope to help you do the same.

Kids and teens who eat dinner with the family at least 3 times a week:

  • Have stronger family bonds
  • Perform better at school
  • Exhibit fewer behavioral problems
  • Less likely to engage in bad activities (smoking, drugs, sex, drinking)
  • More likely to eat healthier and avoid excessive weight gain
