4 Kids, Life and Dinner (Recipe: Corn and Veggie Chowder with Chicken)

Halloween Traditions (Recipe: Cheeseburger Soup)

I am sitting here tonight, surrounded by kids who have basically been on three days of extreme sugar highs, and I am reminded of why I do not love Halloween. I was a fan when I was a kid, and I do love my own share of candy and kiddos in cute costumes, but the […]

Spontaneity and BlogHer Food (Recipe – BBQ Shrimp)

When I was a Freshman in high school, I woke up on a dreary, wintery Kansas Saturday, came downstairs to the kitchen table and discovered a note left from my parents that said “We went to find the sunshine… be back on Monday”. Off the point of my post, my parents obviously had a lot […]

We’re Eating In (Recipe – New York Style Pizza Crust & Sauce)

It happened for a reason. I’m sure of it. I was browsing Facebook one day last month when I came across a status update from Nicole at Pinch My Salt. She said something to the effect of “I’m not going to eat out for one month.. think I can do it?”. I responded that I […]

Signs of Growing Up (Recipe – Zucchini and Bow Ties)

My kids are growing up. I knew they would, but seriously… why does it have to happen overnight? One day it is Thomas the Train and Bob the Builder and the next it is all sports and Pokemon. Little People are getting replaced with even littler Polly Pockets. Elmo and Zoe are no longer favorites […]
