Bangers and Mash

That’s right, my British buds; last night’s Green Chef meal was bangers and mash!  My sweet husband cooked it.  As always, I was elated to have a night off from the kitchen! Our last Green Chef menu for the week is a Tuna Melt sandwich and I made Tuna Toasties for lunch today!  Really?  I’ve… Read More Bangers and Mash

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

Pick Your Battles…

My friend, Heather,… Read More Pick Your Battles…

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

What’s for Dinner

Pasta carbonara with salad and maybe some diced beets and organic grape tomatoes for the little one since he isn’t a big fan of raw lettuces….yet.  Pasta carbonara isn’t the healthiest of dishes, however my family has Italian roots and my husband would be delighted if I served pasta seven days a week. Plus, it’s… Read More What’s for Dinner
