The other day I found myself craving an Orange Julius. Are they as popular as I think they are?
Growing up we had an Orange Julius at our local mall. It was always a treat for us at the end of a family shopping trip. Once I was old enough to be dropped off at the mall alone (ahhh High School memories,) it was always one of my first stops.
If you’ve never had one they are smoothie-like but not nearly as thick. Read the rest of this post
So I’m a little breakfast nutty at the moment. Little Bean LOVES eggs and I find myself cooking them more and more.
This morning I decided to go super light (after last nights chocolate overload) and it was totally satisfying for just over 100 calories!
I had such high hopes for this video. I set up a secondary camera to shoot the stove top and planned to edit and splice the two clips together. Exciting right?! <- ok so I’m a geek. Read the rest of this post
A few weeks ago I saw Chef Michael Simon make a raw kale salad on The Chew. He sliced beets up real thin and cut the kale into ribbons. Then made a vinaigrette out of red wine vinegar and olive oil.
I was immediately intrigued.
I’m fairly new to quinoa. It definitely wasn’t something I grew up with. I didn’t even know it existed until a few years ago.
WHFood.com lists quinoa in their top World’s Healthiest Food list because it’s high in protein, magnesium, iron and it’s low in calories. One half cup cooked has about 110 calories, 4 g of fat and 5 g of fiber. Not bad for baby! Not bad at all!
But what about the texture? How would Little Bean react to something with so many chunks? Find out in our latest Baby Food Adventure…
I’ve had this idea for a quick creamy chicken dish for a few days now. It was time to give it a shot.
The whole family LOVED it. I’m not joking. The only complaint came from Little Guy who declared his hate of mushrooms yet again BUT he ate everything around them. Fine by me, I still got chicken, peas, and whole wheat noodles in the boy without argument. Score 1 for mommy!
I made this on a total whim yesterday as I had leftover avocado after feeding the baby and leftover Spaghetti squash cooked from the weekend. I roasted the squash to serve with my Chicken tips instead of potatoes and it was AMAZING!
Anyway, I’m getting sidetracked. So I’m sitting there staring at the avocado and the squash and this idea pops into my head. Why not use the spaghetti squash like rice in a burrito? It’s a great bulk-er and would really fill a wrap nicely. Read the rest of this post
