Make Your Own Croutons

Yesterday as I opened the freezer, bags of bread butts (that’s what we call the bread ends at our house) slid out. I’d been avoiding the quick-but-nevertheless-annoying re-organization of the freezer.

We’ve been eating lots of peanut butter and jellys here, whittling down the homemade jam supply from last summer. And, as I’ve never had an appreciation for the ends…

How to Peel an Orange

Not rocket science. Right. I know.

But, since many of us don’t spend much time in other kitchens, sometimes it’s fun and surprising to learn a new food prep technique to something you thought you knew everything about.

So here’s the story. I had a friend. She loved oranges. She hated *peeling* oranges. Therefore, she never ate oranges. Well, she never ate oranges unless they were already peeled. (No, I’m not trying to hide behind my friend.) I…

Foodie Friday | Our Best Kitchen Investment Ever

Because we just attended a wedding…and because that makes me reminisce on my own wedding day ten years ago (geesh, that decade just flew by), today’s post is about a gift we received ten years ago that was most definitely our best kitchen investment EVER. (Not to say that a lot of other kitchen items are somehow not as good. But these have turned out to be simply indispensable in so many different ways.)

So…what is the ONE miracle kitchen item?…

My First Attempt at Indian Cooking

Recently I went back to my hometown for a few days to visit friends and revisit my childhood. One night for dinner my friend suggested that we eat at her favorite

Indian restaurant. I had to admit

I had never eaten Indian food before, but I was up for anything. My 11 year old wasn’t very thrilled,

but she recently discovered she liked guacamole, so Indian couldn’t be that

different. Was she ever in for a

Motherhood: Mismatched Socks and Reheating Coffee

Not Me! Monday

I did not wear a white and a black woolen sock to New York City the other day. Uh, yes I did. I was invited by Hasbro to a blogger event before they officially opened their doors for the New York Toy Fair (look out for the extensive blog post on that). I could only find one of each, it was 6 in the morning when I got dressed, and nobody was going to notice anyway. I could have worn other socks -- I have plenty -- but these are my… Continue

Tasty Cucumber & Pomegranate Salad

I will admit it – before making this recipe I had never eaten a pomegranate.

I have had pomegranate juice, but this was the first time I’ve purchased the whole fruit. I had Mike open it up and get the seeds out for me [it kind of looked like a pain to me - thank you, honey!]. I popped one in my mouth – a little crunch, a little explosion of deliciousness!…

Blue Cupcakes and Collard Greens

...After we stopped in town to get the mail, my sister-in-law and three of her kids came over for the afternoon. Don and Maria wanted to watch the movie “Food Inc." I decided to entertain the kids with making cupcakes.

I had just bought this muffin-making kit for a dollar on sale yesterday, thinking it would come in handy one day. Reading the ingredients made me shudder . . . Let’s just say making these was more fun than eating them — not even the kids ate much of… Continue

Simple Thanksgiving Dinner

My five year old's Montessori class held its annual Thanksgiving celebration feast this morning. I signed up to bring the turkey, stuffing, gravy and vegetables. Did I start cooking yesterday? No. I started cooking at 6:15am and delivered everything to the school by 10am. No sweat.

Preparing Thanksgiving dinner does not need to be stressful. I've outlined, below, a simple menu that can be thrown together very easily in a matter of a few hours.
