My Appetizer has an Identity Crisis

When I was growing up, my paternal grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins all converged on one house at Christmas to exchange gifts and eat. My dad was the oldest of eight children (no, they weren’t Catholic) and despite living in a ...
Sensible Trumps Peer Pressure

Sensible Trumps Peer Pressure

When the school lunch calendar comes out each month, DH sits down with Miss M and they decide which lunches she would enjoy.  They mark them on the calendar then all the others are cold lunches.  For the longest time, Miss M would pick whic ...
A Turtle Walked into a Bar

A Turtle Walked into a Bar

I haven’t figured out why my mornings are so chaotic, but I think it has something to do with having a kindergartner that doesn’t move very fast in the mornings.  After getting her off to school, I grab a quick yogurt or piece o ...

My Cup Overflowith. With Chocolate.

I remember when I was growing up, Halloween was a special day where we would drive from neighbor to neighbor and get candy.  Yes, I said drive.  We lived on an acreage and the houses weren’t close enough to walk to – especially ...

Cereal the Superhero Way

First of all, I want to point out that this picture of all the ingredients was taken by 5 year old Miss M, our budding photographer. I took a picture first then she asked for the camera. I regret, I mean I’m proud to say that her pict ...

Faster, Easier and Better than Frozen!

I love to cook but I also love to NOT cook. Although I research recipes online and have tons of cookbooks, I tend to fall back on the same recipes over and over. Thank goodness I maintain a stock of frozen pastas to get me by on the days th ...
