Chocolate Cake That Can't Be "Beet"

If you read my post last Monday, which you can access here, you know that cooking was never my favorite household chore.  It always ranked right up there with ironing and scrubbing the toilet bowl.  But the family has to eat, am I right?

Actually, it wasn’t the cooking part that I had an aversion to, nor was it wondering what to make.  I have tons of great cookbooks and recipes that have been handed down over the years so culinary ideas are not the issue.  It wasn’t even the cleanup…

Case of the Sneaky Spinach

The dilemma is probably as old as motherhood itself.  How DO you get your kids to eat their vegetables?  When I was a kid, I remember hating a LOT of things my mom put on my plate:  beets, apple sauce, mustard, spinach, radishes (still not a fan – sorry Mom) and a bunch of other things.  I always felt like they were on my plate to punish me for something I had done wrong.

As years went by, my taste buds matured and I developed a liking for everything on this list – except for…

Heart Healthy, Kid Friendly Chicken Recipe

One of the challenges I have faced in my journey to be green, healthy and fit is in the area of cooking.  If you have read my posts before, you know about my aversion to cooking.  It’s one of those necessary evils I suppose, even though I am what you might call “kitchen challenged”.  Don’t like cooking or baking, but I can clean like a champ!

My husband is, quite fortunately for me, the kind of guy who will eat pretty much whatever I put in front of him.  Even if he doesn’t like it so…

Fussy About Fruit

I know that my son gets plenty of vitamins because he takes a fantastic supplement and I “hide” vegetables and fruits in just about everything (might have to do a post about that).  But when it comes to eating fruits and vegetables in their natural state, it’s all about the “dip”.

He doesn’t like apple slices unless there is peanut butter involved.  Forget about carrots if there is no ranch dressing.  Salad?  Better have some raspberry vinaigrette.  I should be glad, I know but I…

Pretzel Crusted Cod - Toddler Friendly!


Cod isn’t a fish I cook with often but I have no clue why!  It’s filling, hearty and delicious.  After making this dish, Cod will definitely be in the mix!  When I came home from the grocery store with my ‘new’ found fish, I put a post on Facebook requesting an easy, fast & flavorful recipe!  Of course, my lovelies (many…

Homemade Donut Holes or Donuts

I bought several cans of biscuits on my last trip to the grocery store and my kids kept asking me what I planned on making with them since I normally don’t buy a ton of biscuits.  I told them that I was going to make them surprise using the biscuits.  Today my son asked me to make the surprise recipe.  I told…

Crockpot Beef- My Own Recipe


This is what I call a Lazy Mamas Crockpot Dinner!  I came up with this dish one morning with no recipe, I wasn’t inspired by anything in particular; I opened my refrigerator and had carrots, pre-sliced mushrooms and chuck roast.  That was dinner.  You can see how lazy I was because I didn’t even cut the carrots, but with…

Crockpot Mexican Chicken


I put together this crockpot on a cold, snowy day.  I knew by lunch-time that the last thing I wanted to do was stand in the kitchen cooking dinner come 5pm so this was perfect!  I put all of the ingredients in the crockpot, stirred and turned it on high for 4 hours.

Though I couldn’t taste anything (thank…

Crockpot Chicken Tortilla Soup


I put this crock-pot together on Sunday when the boys were recovering from the flu.  Yes, I already know what you’re thinking… Mexican food?  With the flu?  Crazy, right?  Well, they pretty much spent Friday and Saturday on the couch, eating nothing but toast with jelly,…

Crockpot French Dip Sandwiches


Ahhhhh Sunday.  I needed Sunday.  We went to church in the morning and then I took a little Sunday drive by myself while the boys (all 3 of them) napped. I listened to music, sipped a soy latte and cleared my head.  It was refreshing after all of my stressful ob-gyn stuff.  I’m still stressed about…

Crockpot Lemon Garlic Chicken

I threw this crock-pot together last minute after pre-school and it turned out great!  Though the colors in the picture are kind of ‘boring’… the flavor of this dish are NOT!  Our boys loved it; and it was even more delicious over Creamy Parmesan Rice!  I also steamed their fav veggie- edamame!  Wonder why the love edamame? ; )  Its playful and kid friendly – so fun to ‘pop’!  Lastly, I didn’t want to take the time to brown the chicken like the directions say, so I literally threw every last…

Christmas Breakfast Tradition: Monkey Bread

I love that our little family now has a few traditions throughout the year and this is one of them!  Monkey Bread.  I only make it one time a year; on Christmas morning and this year I am especially excited for it (probably bc I’m pregnant and have been craaaaving it since December 1st!)

Monkey Bread is prepared on Christmas Eve and left sitting out on the counter until morning.  Then, all you have to do when you wake is pop it in the oven, set a timer, and voila!  20 minutes…

Date Night Dinner : Spaghetti with Clams

Our schedule has been insane this week and the only down-time we’ve had is nap-time.  The rest of the day; morning, afternoon and evening has been filled with pre-school, kids play-dates/Christmas parties, a company Christmas party and a few other night time events too!  Brian said to me last night,

How about a movie night and early bed-time on Friday?

I will never turn that down; sounds perfect!  I declined an invite to a Cookie Exchange…

Give Thanks

Happy Thanksgiving! (a few days late)

Are you exhausted? ; )  This was the first Thanksgiving I hosted and not that I didn’t know it was a lot of work but I think being pregnant with an achy back just made all of the work a *little harder!  I was so sore and sleepy on black Friday but it was so worth it!  The memories, the smell of Thanksgiving in our home all day, watching the Thanksgiving Day Parade and the comfort of being together with nowhere…
