I have a confession to make. Cooking is not one of my favorite things to do. In fact, I really kind of hate it. OK, maybe hate is a bit strong. I mean, it’s not as bad as scrubbing the shower floor or putting clean sheets back on the beds (raise your hand if you hate dealing with fitted sheets). But those…Continue

The last time I attempted to make a pot of Chili, it was so spicy that no one could eat it except for my dear hubby. I could only down a tiny bowl and it was a total bust. I’d venture to say that not many taste testers could’ve handled the heat. Why so hot? Well, I met a can of Adobo…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

The meal was "out of this world." That's why it was saved, presumably.
And indeed, it may have been heavenly in its original form, I'm sure; now? Not so much.
A science project, perhaps, a study in microbiology and the tenacity of bacteria. Mould is a very curious but fascinating thing, I'm embarrassed to admit.
Of what do I speak? Surely you know: the evil that lurks at the back of the fridge (contained in Tupperware, of course).…

Isn't this beautiful? I saw this purple cauliflower at the Farmer's Market and had to buy it. I couldn't resist the deep, gorgeous color. According to the Livestrong website, cauliflower has all the nutritional benefits of regular cauliflower but…Continue

My posting about my frustration with companies increasing prices/keeping prices the same and giving us less product and the struggles as a SAHM to feed my family healthy tasty meals.

The meal prep/assembly shop concept has been around for a while. But I had personally never experienced it before. Why would I, I thought? Our family understands the value of family dinners and we do all sit down to dine together at least 4 times a week. And I know how to cook and – most of the time – enjoy it. Why would I ever need a meal prep service?…Continue

I am a bit obsessive when it comes to feeding my kids. When I start looking at labels and realizing that EVERYTHING they eat has sugar, salt, and disgusting chemicals it just makes me crazy! Even so-called "healthy" foods like yogurt and granola bars are loaded with refined sugar and high fructose corn syrup. It makes me want to move to a cabin in the woods and feed the kids…Continue

Yes. It’s been hot here.
No. This recipe is not altogether organic.
Nor is it superbly healthy, complicated or beautiful.
But beware if you’re pregnant, hungry, or looking for a quick-filling meal on a hot day. This one takes but a few moments to prepare and requires no patience at all. Unless you don’t have access to Fritos (or some similar corn chip). Do not ask me how many of these we consumed while I was pregnant. Glenn should be a big fan. Just…Continue

Every few months I get these cravings for sweets. I’m not a big-time sweets-eater. Not sure if it’s because my mom didn’t feed us many sugary foods while we were young or if I wasn’t wired to love desserty foods…but back to my point, every few months I can’t seem to finish a meal without salivating for a sweet bite afterward.
That’s been my life this past week.
Eat lunch. Hmmmm…any chocolate chips left in the freezer?
Eat dinner. Oooh, a bite of ice cream…

Thankful for a beautiful summer in full swing now.
Thankful for plenty of water to keep the girls cool and entertained.
Thankful for good, healthy food to keep me going.…

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…Continue
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…Continue
