I cannot be the only one…who has spent the last several years of their lives in a perpetual state of begging their child to eat. Not just the typical, “Eat your vegetables,” but a pleading to eat something, anything, even the one part of the meal that you were sure your child would eat (like grapes or French fries). This has been a running theme in our house since the day the Sonny Boy was born (literally, read…Continue

A few weeks ago, we started letting our son serve himself his own food at dinnertime. Up until that point, I would bring him his pre-plated food and be met with a barrage of complaints…Continue

When I was able to eat hot lunches at school, there were limited options. We ate the food that the kindly nuns made for us. Actually, I am pretty sure the nuns didn’t cook, but it was Catholic school, so you never know.
The point is, we didn’t have options.
But some schools do give children a choice in what they select for meals, which fascinates me. I can see the boys and girls lining up in the cafeteria, deciding between roast beef or spaghetti. Between carrots or tater tots.…Continue

I know I don't reference my Dad a lot in this blog, but that's mostly because I am really good at apologizing to my Mom. (Sorry, Dad.) Although my parents separated when I was little, I have some very nice memories of my Dad. For example, sometimes, he would make us waffles for dinner. It was pretty cool, because waffles are awesome and it added a touch of whimsy to an otherwise regular week day. He'd even put chocolate chips into…Continue

I love meals that are easy to fix so that I don’t have to spend hours in the kitchen. One Sunday afternoon, we were trying to figure out what we wanted to eat for lunch on the way home from church. My husband suggested that we…Continue

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

Find this recipe at: http://www.thepiggytoes.com/2012/11/08/turkey-and-beef-chili/
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

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
