Every now and then you have to get a little crazy with your kids. For me, that usually involves some endeavor in the kitchen. My kids are ages 4 and 5. Cooking with the little ones doesn’t have to be a nightmare. It can actually be a great experience for you both, if you lay down […]

Fun fact: Will, in his former life, was a bartender. He’s actually one of the best bartenders I know. I don’t know why it never occurred to me he would take an interest our popsicles. The kids had just about finished the last round of them when he suspiciously began to rinse out the mold. […]

Last week, Will once again proved we are soul mates and bought me a set of popsicle molds. While there are countless recipes for homemade popsicles all over the web, I was on a mission for healthy treats. In this heat, it’s easy to get carried away with the Cherry Limemades, Snow Cones and Milkshakes. […]

Alright, I told you guys about the new traditions we had set in place for Saint Patrick’s Day. It was time to take on Easter. When I think of Easter, I think of Easter Dresses, giant hams and gobs of candy. Growing up we were always with the family for holidays. My mother decked out […]

I’m a big fan of tradition. On St. Patrick’s day, we eat corned beef and cabbage because it’s tradition. This is the one time of year our corned beef does not come out of a can in the form of hash. It is the only time of year we willingly eat cooked cabbage.  We do […]

I was 14 when I learned to cook. Making things from scratch was a real badge of honor then. I had learned to make gumbo from scratch. I could make spaghetti sauce from scratch. In fact, if I hadn’t spent at least an hour in the kitchen making whatever I was making I felt lazy. […]

About 10 years ago, I had my first bowl of white bean chili in Pennsylvania. Looking at it, I couldn’t fathom how this creamy light soup could possibly be chili.  Chili as I knew it was 2 cans of kidney beans, 2 cans of diced tomatoes, ground beef and a seasoning packet.  It was the […]

I was in a health food store looking to cure my daughter’s eczema when the clerk began to ask about Ky’s gluten in-take. After clarifying herself a few times, I realized that both of my kids’ diets were predominately gluten based. She went on to say that often times eczema is triggered by a food […]

My first attempt at whacky cake came from a desperate moment where we had hardly anything in the house. My husband and our kids share a sweet tooth and were begging me for treats. Unfortunately, his paycheck hadn’t cleared. I had remembered hearing a bit on The Today Show about depression era recipes. Whacky cake […]
