Pumpkin Waffles

Pumpkin Waffles

Waffles. I used to crush the multigrain Eggos, three at a time with butter and maple syrup, but the Belgian waffles on menus were never my thing. I couldn’t get the butter into those giant crevices the way I wanted to and then I found the waffle itself to be all air, no substance....

My Staple Recipes

My Staple Recipes

With life with three kids in full gear and a new, unshakable sense that my afternoons with my soon-to-be first grader are fleeting, my kitchen creativity has slowed. I’m not pulling recipes from magazines, perusing blogs and trying to recreate meals I ate out at restaurants. My love for food and cooking is still...

I’d Like Your Help

Why do I have a blog? Sometimes when the creativity is lagging and I’m pressed for time I have to get back to my primary intentions. Though it may have begun as a kind gesture gifted from my brother-in-law, I’ve kept it up for six years for several specific reasons.

What my Kids Eat in a Day

What my Kids Eat in a Day

Thought I’d share this; perhaps you’ll get a tip or two or have a suggestion for me, which I would love. I have found that if you want to get a bunch of moms riled up, start talking about how you feed your kids. Tempers get hot, real quick. Please don’t read any judgment...

Easy Maple Glazed Chicken

Easy Maple Glazed Chicken

Oh, chicken breasts. I have a feeling that some of you read posts like this creamy corn and bacon spaghetti and think to yourself, “man, that looks good, but I’ll probably make some chicken breasts”. Why? They’re cheap, they’re healthy, and they’re generally well-received by family members. So here’s a recipe that zazzes (not...

Coconut Rice Pudding – Dairy Free

Coconut Rice Pudding – Dairy Free

So, eating dairy free isn’t that hard when I’m in my house. I like a lot of foods, so I’ve just been buying and eating foods without dairy. It’s SUPER ANNOYING, though, when I’m out to dinner at a restaurant or a friend’s house. Cheese is great, and everyone knows it (except my 6...

Mini Pumpkin Pies – Crustless

Mini Pumpkin Pies – Crustless

You can put pumpkin in anything (just ask Pinterest), but for me the classic pumpkin pie reigns supreme. This has nothing to do with the fact that it’s the “healthiest” of the pies – that’s just a lucky break. Now I can go on about the fiber, vitamin A and vitamin C this dessert...
