5 Steps to a Perfect Hard Boiled Egg +Fun News

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 »»

Grilled Beet Sandwich

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 »»

Avocado and Pinto Quesadilla for Baby and Me

Yesterday I decided to rediscover simple foods.

Part of my cooking slump has to do with over thinking. So I did what I used to do, simply react to what I have on hand.

This is what I came up with…

Pear Ginger Smoothie

I feel like I’ve been in a kitchen slump lately. I’m just not motivated at the moment to whip up meals for the family or even little things for myself.

I think balancing the tastes and whims of a picky husband, a 6 year old, the baby (who now eats what we are eating for the most part) and myself, has sucked all my creative juices dry. I want healthy, Husband wants junk, Little Guy for the most part is game if everything is separate and the baby needs easy to pick up, non-messy, finger food options. Read the rest of this post »»

Waffles and Banana Yolk Mash

It’s true. Sometimes I feed my baby things I’d never eat and, well, actually find gross. This is one of them, but when you look at from a growing baby nutritional standpoint I’m totally justified. At least I think am.

According to NutritionData.com, 1 large egg yolk has just over 50 calories, 5 g of fat and 3 g of protein. It’s also a good source of Folate and Vitamin B12. Mix one in with a sweet banana and a dollop of yogurt and you’ve got yourself a nice little meal for baby. Will he eat it? Find out in our next Baby Food Adventure…. Read the rest of this post »»

Creamy Black Beans and Tomatoes from the Pantry

What’s the saying?

“A face only a mother could love?”

Well, this may be a dish only “the cook” can love.

I whipped this up on a whim a couple of days ago. I really didn’t know where I was going with it. I just wanted a big bowl of warm goodness and that’s what I got.

Lemon Thyme Tuna Burgers

Sometimes I’ll make something and then get obsessed, making it over and over and over again.

It happened twice last week. First with The Most Amazing Bowl of Oatmeal EVER! I now have to stop myself from eating it every single morning. I decided to make a deal with myself and alternate eggs and oatmeal for breakfast from now on. Today was an omelet. Tomorrow you can bet I’ll be going to town on some banana, peanut butter, and chocolate oatmeal.

The other was this tuna burger. Read the rest of this post »»
