How to Make a One-Pot Dinner You Won’t Forget…

This is a recipe that is a bit sentimental to me.  I haven’t seen or tasted it since the first meal Mike made for me.  I have a theory that any man who offers to cook for you will always make spaghetti.  Am I right or am I right, girls?  He didn’t; maybe that contributed to… Read More How to Make a One-Pot Dinner You Won’t Forget…

Coconut, Curry Lentil Soup

Forgive me for my recent lack of posts.  We’ve been doing a bit of traveling, some crafting, a deal of Christmas shopping, decorating and a lot of eating, including Gilligan, my 13 year old Weimaraner, whose binging around the neighborhood hasn’t gone well for his belly….or for my rug.  Ugh! I made everything from scratch… Read More Coconut, Curry Lentil Soup

Happy Halloweeeeeeeen!!!

The weather has finally cooled a bit Florida!  With Halloween here, it’s time to put away the lemons and get out the pumpkin!  I began my morning with mouthwatering, pumpkin pancakes.  I’ve been hitting the snooze button way too many mornings lately and this morning was no exception.  Getting out to run at 4:30 am… Read More Happy Halloweeeeeeeen!!!

Breakfast Parfaits

Breakfast is a hard meal for me.  Not everyone will eat cereal, you know, the easy breakfast.  One kid says the sweeter the better, hardly able to contain her excitement if anything I make contains chocolate, syrup, honey or any other form of sugar.  This kid will choke down canned asparagus (triple gross) if bribed… Read More Breakfast Parfaits

Steaks and Shambles

Here we were at dinner-making hour and all the kids claimed supreme boredom and couldn’t seem to entertain themselves.  I reluctantly suggested a fort. Out came all the blankets in the house, pillows and dining chairs.  Along with the craft project for Mimi’s birthday,  my house was left in shambles and the fun lasted a… Read More Steaks and Shambles

So, is it “mih-nuh-STRO-nee”or “mini-strohn”?

Debatable.  That’s what I’m making for dinner.  Another one-pot-wonder.  I’m aaaaall about a complete meal in one dish when I’m making dinner for the little monsters. I want protein, which means meat or meat substitute, such as tofu, eggs, or legumes, at least 2 carbs per serving and preferably one to two vegetable servings.  Usually… Read More So, is it “mih-nuh-STRO-nee”or “mini-strohn”?

Pick Your Battles…

One of the nicest things anyone did for me after I had Andrew was make my family a meal.  It is so overwhelming to bring a tiny, helpless baby home from the hospital.  I felt like I couldn’t get anything done!  It’s especially difficult when you have other little mouths to feed!! My friend, Heather,… Read More Pick Your Battles…

A Day in Philly

A lesson on America’s history.  A view of the liberty bell and a tour of Independence Hall.  I guess the tour guide’s mustache muffled his voice because I didn’t hear a word! Coupled with the chasing around of the two youngest monsters trying to stuff liberty bell cards down the antique vents, it was impossible… Read More A Day in Philly

Pretzels in Pennsylvania

Julius Sturgis founded the first commercial pretzel baking company in 1861.  The pretzels were hand twisted until the 50’s.  Most pretzel twisters were able to twist 50 pretzels a minute.  In about 2 minutes, I was able to roll out and twist one.  This was an entertaining tour! They still had most of the wooden… Read More Pretzels in Pennsylvania
