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 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
