Do you have problems getting your kids to eat their veggies? I do, unfortunately. There are some my daughter will eat including broccoli and carrots and corn, but my son will not eat a single veggie unless it comes...
Whether you’re a fan of New Year's or not, the night of Dec. 31 is another one of those holidays where you get to celebrate life with the ones you love. As a mom with young kids, I want...
When holidays roll around my family often gets too busy planning the sit down meal and dessert(s) to think about any sort of munchie food prior to the main event. This generally leads to people snatching pieces of Italian...
You guys know I love a fast, weeknight dinners that taste amazing. As the weather turns colder I’ve been craving anything that feels extra warm and comforting too. A few weeks ago we made these incredible French Dip Sandwiches...
Did you know candy canes were originally created in order to keep children quiet in church? According to the folklore story, the choirmaster at the Cologne Cathedral in Germany wanted to keep children quiet during a long performance at the...
I love the bounty of end of summer veggies my garden produces. We are so lucky to be able to have a small area to plant on where we grow a couple of our favorite vegetables like tomatoes, cucumbers,...
A few weeks ago, my husband had a craving for soft pretzels. He was so intent on having those billowy, soft morsels that he decided to make a special trip to the grocery store to find some. He came...
You know how you sometimes just get cravings for something minty and indulgent? Other people get these right? Especially around St. Patrick’s Day when you know minty, green food is around every corner? It’s literally around every corner when...
Most of the time, I try to eat a lower-carb diet. Don’t get me wrong, I love carbs, but carbs love my thighs too. One of the easiest ways for me (and everyone) to cut out carbs is to replace...
Don’t lose your head over finding the perfect food and novelty items for your Halloween party. This Cheese for Brains Halloween Dip is a killer. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || ).push({}); It’s creepy and kooky, mysterious and spooky. It’s all...
With Easter just around the corner, and my house being the designated “host” house this year, I have been thinking up ways to add extra, special touches to the holiday celebration. We rarely get to stay home for a...
My daughter has become a little obsessed with the color pink. The only color she loves more is "rainbow", which obviously isn't one color at all. When it came time to decide which treat we were going to bring to...
I'm not really the type of person that can just throw things together when baking and magically have it taste good. Cooking, I can make this happen. Baking, well, let's just say one time in college I made out-of-the-box...
I know people have a love/hate relationship with cranberries. I personally dislike them. I find them bitter and tart and basically not at all sweet. That said, I’m in love with this Cranberry Upside Down Cake!   (adsbygoogle =...
Summer is finally here and with it comes the desire to lounge in the sun, eat watermelon and grill anything covered in barbecue sauce. The first thing most people think of when they hear barbecue is ribs and they are...
I’m a cheese girl. I love all kinds of cheese – blue cheese, goat’s cheese, stinky cheese, etc. If a person could live off cheese (and wine and bread), I’d be in heaven. So I jumped at the chance...
