I learned to cook for my family when I was pretty young–maybe 10? It’s been a passion of mine ever since. And now, I’m passing my love of cooking onto my kids. They especially enjoy searching Pinterest for new recipes to try. I’m happy to hand over the reigns and let them take charge of […]

I love edamame! My boys actually like it too. I was searching for a good edamame salad recipe and couldn’t find one I like, so I was experimenting and came up with this one. I hope you love it!
Papa Knitschmidt has quite the sweet tooth and likes to bake. He has made some amazingly yummy treats! When Chalupa Boy was a baby I worked for Papa for a while. There was always some kind of mini candy bar or chocolate nugget of one variety or another in the jar on his desk. But my favorite days were the ones when Papa had been baking and there was something wrapped up waiting for me.
Having a child on the autism spectrum means 9 families out of 10 are going to try a gluten free diet for them. There are many studies that suggest both a gluten and dairy free diet, and then there is the whole debate about soy with boys in general… At some point we are all […]
Perfect for these chilly fall nights! This recipe was created when I couldn’t find my dads trusty recipe and started getting creative on my own. Turned out pretty darn tasty if I do say so myself!
I’m kind of addicted to edamame right now, can you tell? At least the kids love it too, so it’s an easy way to pack in nutrition to a meal.
I found an amazing recipe on The Reluctant Gormet and made some modifications to perfect it for our family. Everyone gobbled it up! Ignore the fact it’s not every heart healthy with all the bacon grease, cheese and heavy cream… That’s what makes it even more delicious! Oh! And if you don’t happen to have […]
We LOVE Ragu in this house! The kids love pasta so we always have a few bottles of the roasted garlic pasta sauce on hand! I love how ragu is nutritious for the kids, so even if they want only spaghetti every night, they are still getting enough veggies. I love how quick and easy […]
I’ve dug deep into my dads recipes again! This time for his famous Drunken Chicken! Enjoy! (P.S. – I didn’t take a pic of my meal and then searching for a photo of one like this recipe was like trying to find a needle in a haystack, so enjoy this pic of a passed out […]
This is Amazing! I made it last week and the kids gobbled it up!
I’m ready for fall to arrive, how about you?! I was searching for a great pumpkin recipe to get me in the autumn mood and came accross this AWESOME one from Family Fun Magazine! I’m making them now! Hope they turn out just as tasty as they look!
Tired of pasta and don’t feel like making a risotto? This is my go-to for pasta night here. My kids LOVE Gnocchi! Gnocchi (pronounced nee-okkee) are an excellent alternative: They’re fantastic with all sorts of sauces, from a simple summer tomato sauce to the richest winter meat sauce. Florentines call them topini (field mice), because […]
