A Day In The Life Of My Daughters Food Intake

At 16m my daughter loves food. Like LOVES food. Some kids will play through their hunger and forget to eat. Not mine. In our house, you can't…

It's OK to give up on the peas

It's dinnertime, and I am preparing two meals. I find that I do this frequently enough that I question my sanity, but not often enough that I stop doing it. I would like to prepare just one meal - one that my whole family enjoys, but that doesn't happen every day of the week, so two meals it is.…

Cooking at home

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…

Leaving the cereal on the shelf

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.…

Do I have to eat this?

At the beginning of every month, I plan out all the meals that we are going to eat. For the whole month. I do this for a few reasons (meal planning, to ensure we aren't getting repetitive with our dinners, and to allow myself a few nights off from cooking each week). And I am painfully aware that as I plan out the meals there will be a number of dinners my son will not want to eat. Chicken tikka masala? No way. Pulled pork sandwiches? Not…

Favorite Make-Ahead Meals

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…

Distracted dining hurts families

When I was little we had a simple rule in our household: No eating in front of the television. We ate our meals at the tables in the kitchen or dining room. In nice weather, we ate outside on the deck.…

Let's talk about cake for a minute

When was the last time you had a nice piece of cake? Was it at a celebration? Or maybe it was after a nice dinner out with family or friends? Whatever the event, you probably remember it really well, because it turns out that eating sweets is linked to episodic memories.…

Finding the time to eat

Every evening when I come home from work, I ask my son about his lunch. Most days he gives it high praise: "It was double fantastic awesome!" Some days he gives me helpful criticism: "Please pack the crackers and the cheese separately so the crackers don't get soggy." Our deal is that he has to bring home everything that he didn't eat so I can make sure that he is consuming enough healthy food.…

One Recipe, Three Meals

One Recipe, Three Meals

My crockpot has become a dear friend over the past 6 years... Pretty much when I started having kids. Its so easy to throw all your ingredients in, cover, and the let magic happen. Whether you work outside the home or from inside the home, there's nothing better than to smell the wonderful aroma of your dinner cooking and to know that all you have to do is grab a plate and fork. Sigh. There are a plethora…

Packing For Tomorrow

Packing for tomorrow

Last night, the kids and I had the opportunity to pack some lunches for the West Suburban PADS (Public Action to Deliver Shelter) organization. This non-profit agency gives emergency food and shelter to individuals and families in the West Suburban Cook County area. They operate a shelter every Tuesday night and provide lunches for the next day. There are many PADS programs available all over with some even supplying permanent housing and supportive services for their…

Baked Chicken Nuggets - 3 ingredients, 20 minutes, healthy meal!

I made these last night and they were delicious! I only wish that I had made more to freeze, we ate them all for dinner! These homemade chicken nuggets were so easy, and only have 3 ingredients (not counting salt and pepper, which I happened to forget anyway): ground chicken, panko bread crumbs, and olive oil! The whole process of making them was quick and painless, and I knew the quality of the meat and breading was much healthier than any chicken nuggets that can be bought in…

Meals on the run

I am a fast eater. Probably too fast. Most days it takes me longer to prepare a meal than it does for me to eat it. This comes in handy for all those times I eat lunch at my desk (especially since I don't seem to suffer from heartburn), but it is definitely not something I want my son to inherit.…

What's your stress hour look like?

Most nights, when I get home from work, I immediately start cooking dinner. The first hour after I get home is a bit of a blur: There is food to prepare, people to greet and those morning chores to complete (if I didn't finish them earlier). If I can get dinner on the table by 6:45, then it is a really good day.…

Stay out of my kitchen

I like to cook. It is one of those skills I came by through watching my mother (thanks, Mom) and with a lot of practice in making meals when I was younger. It is something that I enjoy, find challenging and try to share with my son.…

Dinner for one: Eating by yourself

I know several moms who have multiple children with active schedules. Those Moms spend their evenings and weekends chauffeuring their children to various sports activities, musical activities and dance lessons. I'm always amazed by that (think of the planning and coordination that takes), and I usually have one question for them: Where do you find the time for dinner?…

I know what's for dinner

My son and I are laying on the floor of the living room, looking through cookbooks. I am looking through a cookbook that my mother gave me ages ago and I haven't fully explored yet; he is looking through one with Cookie Monster on the cover (because Cookie Monster is cool).…
