Going out to eat can add up quickly, I love take-out food, but I have learned that eating at home is definitely more cost-effective, that’s true if you are a single person or a large family. It is nice to go out as a family and not have to clean-up. It's nice to go out on Date Night, but it is just as fun to cook at home for date…Continue

Do you want to be edgy or even modern? There are a lot of drinkware nowadays that are designed to look sleek, modern, and even minimalist. However, there is also drinkware that celebrates the golden age, yes it’s definitely copper.
Not everyone is enticed with the idea of the future and what is new, sometimes, people appreciate what is old and what was great back then. The golden ages have shown women in the kitchen holing copper mugs and they look absolutely…Continue

Integrating healthy foods into your child's diet can be challenging. Children haven't fully developed their palettes like adults have. This is important because it can be attributed to why your child is being a picky eater. Also, this is why you need to encourage the child to add new flavors to his or her…Continue

The onion is a truly powerful tool for any family chef, spicing up the dullest of ingredients and adding depth to dishes that might otherwise fail to inspire your demanding clientele. Yet onions, too, can become boring when presented the same way night after night. Trying a different preparation technique not only livens the flavors, but keeps the act of cooking interesting for you,…Continue

I feel like I spend a lot of time in the kitchen on the weekends. This is probably because I cook several more meals on weekends than during weekdays: While I regularly make my and my son's lunches in the mornings, breakfast is provided at his school.…Continue

I recently went on a multi-family vacation with my brother's family and our Mother and Step-dad. The first thing we did after arriving at the house was go food shopping. And we bought an amount of food that was scary to me. The fridge and pantry were overstocked with food, and there was no way that we were going to go hungry.…Continue

I love to host dinner parties, but I really don’t like doing all the work. My husband is this huge foodie. I make a gourmet meal almost every day. To be honest, I like to eat well, and he does do his fair share of the cooking, but after a while, I’m over it! (Especially when he NEVER does the dishes, even when he cooks.) So over my many years of entertaining…
I have come up with a few tips and tricks to pull off an outstanding spread, while making my guests…

This past weekend, I helped my son make pancakes.
I phrased it that way on purpose, as this was the first time I let him take the lead in making pancakes while I supervised. Up to this point, I would only let him do the prep work and stir ingredients together. But this time I let him work with the batter on…

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

I opened Lidia Bastianich’s “Mastering the Art of Italian Cooking” (which is the most incredible Italian cookbook I’ve ever owned), and I was ready to prepare one of her chicken dishes. Instead, a few of her recipes inspired me to try something of my own with a few of the ingredients I have in my fridge. The result…Continue

For once, our freezer is stocked. I still feel like it's not enough, but I have no room for anymore stuff, so I guess it will have to do! I've been making a few extra meals each week for the last few weeks to stock up on meals for when the baby comes. I've learned that anytime I make a casserole, to just make two of them and freeze the other one. It really doesn't take anymore time and saves me from cooking a meal on another day. It's so handy that I will continue to do it from now on to…Continue

I used to think that meal planning was for type A crazies with WAY too much time on their hands. I mean, who has the time or energy to think more than a day or two ahead about food, let alone a week or a month! But deciding on dinner has always stressed me out. Pulling something out of the freezer in the morning left my family with a very boring revolving door of baked BBQ chicken, baked shake-and-bake chicken, or (here’s where we get exciting…) spaghetti. Or I would tell my husband to pick…Continue
