The Laughing Cow recently launched Smooth Sensations a line of 5 cream cheese spreads. There’s Classic Cream, Classic Cream Light, Strawberries & Cream, Garden Vegetable and my favorite…
Confession time, I recorded a 30 minute video making this with both kids (partally) 2 nights ago. I miss videos. I really do but they seem so much more difficult with 2 children. I’m also having technical difficulties with my video recording and audio syncing making it VERY time consuming to edit.
I’m seriously thinking about hiring a video guy and going more pro with them but I’m not sure I want to go in that direction.
Anyway, enough shop talk I MUST share this chicken idea with you! Read the rest of this post
That’s right FRUIT! It’s so frustrating! I mean, who doesn’t like fruit? it’s nature’s candy for Pete’s sake! It’s sweet. It’s soft (or at least can be.) It’s colorful. It’s amazing!
Little Bean is not impressed. Any fruit given to him besides banana gets poked at, squished or thrown. The kid will attempt to put anything in his mouth.

I’ve gone back to just whipping things up without really measuring anything (this meal was going to be one of those until I realized I still had enough light to take some photos.) I’ve also instituted a few brainless meal nights during the week to save my sanity.
Three years ago I posted a video called “Makin’ Hard Boiled Eggs” where I shared my system for, well… making hard boiled eggs. Genius name, I know. I’m smart like that.
Anyway, since then I’ve gotten tons of feedback and comments thanking me but all the information is locked in a long winded 10 minute video so I don’t link to it often.
Today I’m here to remedy that and share the written version for quick reference. Read the rest of this post
Yup. You read that correctly. BEET as in those red vegetables that stain your fingers pink.
Honestly, I have no idea what possessed me to make this. I don’t particularly like beets. I mean I like them, but I don’t looove them.
Two summers ago I made them for the family a few times because they were part of our share from the CSA… Read the rest of this post
