I ate breakfast every morning when I was little - oatmeal in the winter, cereal in the warmer months, pancakes or waffles on the weekends. Breakfast was, after all, the most important meal of the day. I probably needed that meal to sustain me as the nuns were not going to let us eat again until lunch at 12:30.…

It is Saturday. My son and I are in the kitchen and I am teaching him how to make scrambled eggs. I watch him as he stands on a stool near the stove, mimicking the moves I showed him earlier with the spatula. "Look, Mommy! I am swooping the eggs and they are coming out fluffy."…Continue

One of the quickest healthiest breakfasts you can throw together. A dish of lovely creamy porridge. You can either do it the proper way in a pan and simmer and stir, you can make it in minutes in the microwave or you can go instant with a dish of Ready brek. Whichever way you choose it’s…Continue

Ok, yeah, I'll admit that my husband and I may have rock, paper, scissored our way through some of more undesirable aspects of parenting our twins. (I'm pretty sure we're not the only ones who do this either.) Because, sometimes, it just doesn't really make sense for BOTH of us to jump into a crappy situation. For…Continue

This is a follow-up to my last blog post. I just made more Egg Muffins, and I wanted to share the delicious outcome with you. I changed the recipe a bit and added six organic eggs, chopped onions, grated cheeses and turkey bacon. If you want them to puff up a bit more than use 6 eggs instead of four and cook for 20-25 mins instead of 10-15. Click on…Continue

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Your mother said it; your grandmother said it and doctors agree. However, chances are they don’t live the same hectic and crazy life you do. If you are like me, you probably nibble on stuff, eat a piece of fruit running out the door or you just hang in there until lunch.
So, how do…Continue

This Banana Bread Loaf is delicious and moist with lots of flavour. Perfect sliced with tea or coffee. Banana bread is wonderful toasted too. Best with overripe bananas.
It was my birthday on Friday. I turned 21 again, but with 11…Continue

When I worked in our elementary school district, one of the most heartbreaking things I dealt with were the kids who came to school hungry. Our school didn’t offer a lunch program, but it wouldn’t have mattered anyway. Our school didn’t have “cooking” equipment. We basically only had ovens to heat up processed…Continue

I love that our little family now has a few traditions throughout the year and this is one of them! Monkey Bread. I only make it one time a year; on Christmas morning and this year I am especially excited for it (probably bc I’m pregnant and have been craaaaving it since December 1st!)
Monkey Bread is prepared on Christmas Eve and left sitting out on the counter until morning. Then, all you have to do when you wake is pop it in the oven, set a timer, and voila! 20 minutes…Continue

What have I done?
I know my 11-year-old son is a capable child. He likes to help his dad out at the store and recently our neighbors hired him to look after their cats while they are away on vacation. He does well in school, is a brown belt in karate, loves to play everything from "Bach Minuet in G Major" to "Moves Likes Jagger" on the piano, puts his dirty clothes in the hamper (mostly), keeps his room fairly neat, is always up and dressed for school on time, is helpful,…Continue

Would you feed your child a Twinkie for breakfast? According to a report by the Environmental Working Group, they will get even more sugar from Kellogg's Honey Smacks. It contains 20 grams of sugar and is 56% sugar by weight. Yikes!…Continue

I am in love with my new Bella Cucina donut maker. What is it about donuts that we love so much? That sweet shape promises us something sinful. In this case, it's not so sinful. It's just waffles but the kids think it's a special day when we have donuts for breakfast.…Continue

Do you ever wanna just walk away from your kids in public and act like you don't know who the hell they are? No? Surely that's not just me. Call me Mommy Dearest if you will, but when my kids have a brain fart and act like complete Neanderthals who've never heard of manners, I sometimes think it would be easier to point and stare and pretend like I'm disgusted by the horrible excuse…
I’ve already mentioned that my food obsession extends from the kitchen to television and magazines. Thanks to the DVR I never miss an episode of Top Chef or The Next Iron Chef, and I love getting my Food Network, Clean Eating and Cooking Light magazines in the mail. I also often print off recipes from other blogs or the Food Network website, all of which I compile in my beloved…Continue

And, I mean the real poaching, in boiling water, not the cheating kind with all the chichi non-stick poaching skillets and other similar electric versions. I’m going to buy a specialized skillet just to make my occasional Eggs Benedict?…Continue
