The Prepared Mama (Recipe – Turkey Black Bean Burgers)

The other day, I was sitting in a room full of moms, when a lady came in with a screaming toddler. He had cut his big toe something awful and needed a band-aid. In that room full of moms, I was able to open my purse and pull out a first aid kit with band-aids. […]

Menu Plan Monday (Recipe: Taco Seasoning)

As I’ve mentioned time and time again on my blog, I have not always been a cook. In fact, I used to detest cooking. My husband still refers to our early days together as “back when you couldn’t cook” (nice, isn’t he?). As my ability to cook has evolved, I still have my old stand-by […]

FlyLady Flunkie (Recipe – Aleppo Pepper Chicken, Asparagus and Pasta)

6 years ago, a friend of mine sent me a link in an email to something that she said “changed her life”. The link was to a housekeeping/organizing/cleaning system by someone known as FlyLady. Intrigued, I clicked on it and read…and read… and read. As a fairly new stay at home mom, and one who […]

Boredom… one of the many things that kids complain about during the summer months. When I was growing up, I said the words “Mom, this is boring” so often that my mom threatened to ground me for life if I said it again. Being the clever kid I was, I got out the Thesaurus and […]

What is Comfort? (Recipe: Tuna Noodle Casserole)

As social as I like to be, there is one day a week that I look forward to than any other day. That day is Tuesday and the reason is that I have an open calendar on Tuesdays. I don’t have to take the kids to school, we have no extra curricular activities, and I […]

Vacation Preparation (Peanut Butter Cake Bars Recipe)

We leave on our Spring Break vacation this coming Friday. We are heading south to visit my parents, who live near sunny South Padre Island, Texas.

Big City Living (Recipe: Bacon & Egg Cups)
