This bread is always a hit: it’s my Grandpa’s recipe and a St. Patrick’s Day tradition in our family, but it is so quick and easy to make that it’s perfect for any time of year. It makes two decent sized loaves and it’s always gobbled up quickly! It complements heavy meat dishes and stews […]
Easter is a bit later than usual this year. Normally it falls on or around my youngest’s birthday and we combine Easter and his birthday party. This year Easter isn’t until April 20th. Brady will be egg-cited to get his own holiday for once. ;) Because so much of Easter is about candy these days, […]
Next Tuesday just happens to be Fat Tuesday aka Mardi Gras! So for this week, we’re cooking it up Cajun style! In doing my background research for this recipe, it occurred to me that there must be as many gumbo recipes as there are residents of Louisiana…and no one recipe is more “authentic” than another. […]
Oh Greek Yogurt, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways! We seriously go through tons of yogurt around our house, (which is why I have learned to make it from scratch, as I posted here: Homemade Yogurt ) One of my kids’ favorite things to munch on is fresh veggies and ranch […]
My kids and I love smoothies. I do have to admit, it’s quite the process to get them all together for just a quick smoothie for breakfast or as a treat after dinner. I was buying some pre-made smoothies but the cost was killing my pocketbook. At roughly $3 per smoothie, they were fast becoming an expensive treat.
I found a great tip on Pinterest about freezing yogurt into ice cube trays for toddler portions. Genius! Then my mind started working… All that’s in the pricey smoothie bag is frozen yogurt and fruit. Hmmmm… Then, this morning as I was starving and trying to come up with a way to pack in a ton of fruit while still minding my Weight Watchers PointsPlus® points, this recipe was born.

Valentine’s Day is almost here! Time for some last minute planning to make the day special for my husband and boys. This year, Entenmann’s sent me a great recipe and treats to create an edible bouquet and I want to share it with you! There is also a great sweepstakes you can enter! […]
If you were a public school kid in the 80′s, you know that the only acceptable side item for a bowl of chili is a cinnamon roll. I can’t even imagine two things that make a better pair! My daughter disagrees. She likes a particular steakhouse chain’s dinner rolls the best, and often asks if we […]
“Milanese” refers to a style of cooking meat cutlets by pounding them thin, dredging them in a crunchy coating, and frying. It is so much faster than fried chicken, and because the cutlets are very thin they cook quickly, which means less time to absorb oil. You can use this technique with any boneless meats […]
There are an awful lot of opinions on food in my house. Trying to get a dinner on the table that everyone will like and is somewhat healthy, in under 30 minutes? Quite the challenge. Add the weekday chaos to the equation-kids stressing over homework, little bro trying to watch his cartoons while big sisters […]
It’s so hard to get a variety of veggies on the table in the dead of winter. There just aren’t a lot of options! But this is an easy, fresh-tasting side dish that compliments lots of dinner, and looks bright and colorful, too. I adapted it from this Ellie Krieger recipe-hers called for mint, which […]
These easy rice bowls are super-duper fast, full of veggies, and my kids rave about them. The best part is that you can mix and match your favorite veggies with whatever your family likes, or whatever’s on sale or in season. We really like to change it up with sliced mushrooms, bean sprouts, even pineapple […]
