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…Continue
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…Continue

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…Continue

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…Continue

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…Continue

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,…Continue

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…Continue

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…Continue

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…Continue

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…Continue

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…Continue

Happy Thanksgiving to you all! If you fancy trying a different kind of Turkey this year, I've got a recipe for you from my new cookbook A Gluten Free Taste of Turkey...

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
