The onion is a truly powerful tool for any family chef, spicing up the dullest of ingredients and adding depth to dishes that might otherwise fail to inspire your demanding clientele. Yet onions, too, can become boring when presented the same way night after night. Trying a different preparation technique not only livens the flavors, but keeps the act of cooking interesting for you,…Continue

So far (knock on wood), my 9 month old will eat anything I give her. So, I try and give her healthy choices as much as possible. If everything tasted good, wouldn't you eat the healthiest stuff all the time too!? I read an article on superfoods for babies and decided to try and pack as many of those as possible into one french fry shaped "finger" that she could easily feed herself. I found a winning recipe! I made them over the weekend and they will probably last all week - plus they…Continue

This past weekend I hosted my very first cookie swap! After a random idea and a post on a whim on Facebook, I had what I expected to be a good handful of attendees, however, after a lot of illnesses and other medical emergencies of a few of my expected attendees, it ended up being a small house. No worries! That just meant more cookies and wine for us.
If you have never been to…

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…Continue
Last night, the kids and I had the opportunity to pack some lunches for the West Suburban PADS (Public Action to Deliver Shelter) organization.

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…Continue
