As I said in my pregnancy update, yesterday I was in a complete brain cloud. My day was spent reacting to all the responsibilities I forgot about. An assignment here. A phone call there. All of sudden I found myself at dinner time with nothing defrosted and barely a desire to cook. But my desire to eat out after this weekend was even less, so I rummaged through the freezer to see what I could find. I haven’t gone grocery shopping making supplies low. Real low. I don’t even have any fresh onion or garlic in the house! Read the rest of this post
This post isn’t as much a recipe as an idea. Actually I consider all my “recipes” just ideas. I rarely make the same thing twice and if I do it’s never the same exact way becuase I’m a reactor. No, I’m not going to explode at at moment, although I do feel like I am going to pop any day now–holy crap I’m 9 months pregnant!!
Sorry, pregnancy brain distraction.
I’m not claiming this idea to be “healthy” so please, all crazy health nuts need not comment. The idea here is to have a little fun with the kids, celebrate a holiday by making something green (without taking all day or making a huge mess), and possibly adding a few extra vitamins into the mix, literally.
I love using a boxed cake mix in a pinch especially around the holidays. They make it easy to bake quick desserts where you can easily shave down the fat and calories without anyone noticing. Read the rest of this post
The husband and I had a date night on Saturday. We decided to squish a few in now while we have the chance. With this baby coming in the next few weeks, there’s no way we’re getting out for a few months at least! We’ll have 2 kids, 1 of them an infant and no family that lives within 3 hours, we’ll be lucky to find a moment to talk let alone enjoy dinner and a movie. Which is exactly what we decided to do this weekend.
When I was a kid I LOVED Easy Cheese. That cheese “stuff” found in a can that you can squirt in fun patterns onto crackers. You know…. this stuff.
And yes… I have squirted it directly in my mouth on more than one occasion. Come on. Fess up. YOU have too! ;)
Ohh but they are tasty! And you’ll never guess what’s in them. Or better yet, what’s NOT in them. :)
I love the challenge of making baked goods out of “healthy” things. My intention isn’t to necessarily duplicate traditional baked goods but to make tasty treats that are yummy and add SOME nutritional value to our diets.
Joe left a comment on my recent Single Serve Steal Cut Oats Topped with Blueberries post about using quinoa for breakfast and I haven’t been able to get the thought out of my head ever since. A couple of years ago I made Apple Cinnamon Breakfast Quinoa but haven’t dabbled with the idea in awhile. It was about time.
I’ve been on quite a journey with oatmeal. Five years ago I never touched the stuff. Ever. It just wasn’t on my radar. I don’t remember eating it much as a kid. It surly wasn’t something I made in college and you guys know who I’m married to, right? I don’t think the husband has ever had a bowl. At least not since I’ve known him.
Yet somehow I became a person who just whips up a bowl of Steel Cut Oats in the middle of the week. Read the rest of this post
Little Man and I had tons of fun trying Kiwi’s yesterday. It’s been awhile since publishing a Produce Pick but as I say in the video my intent is to inspire you to try something new! Read the rest of this post

I don’t know WHAT came over me tonight. I just wanted something different and apparently, I’m a little obsessed with ‘S’s. ;~P
This morning I pulled out some tilapia fillets to make Crispy Baked Parmesan Crusted Tilapia. Along side, I was planning to make Sweet Potato Fries but by the time I got home from work, I just wasn’t in the mood. Read the rest of this post
yea.. I didn’t believe it either. This is very similar to my Banana Soft-Serve experience. Simply do a search for avocado pudding and you will see tons of web sites with recipes using a simple avocado as the base ingredient for pudding.
I had to try it.
Yesterday was GORGEOUS out! The first day in a long time that didn’t have me wanting to hibernate so I took complete advantage. This pregnant butt went out for a nice long walk and I made a wonderful summer inspired meal while the boys played outside.
What was the summer inspired meal? You ask. Well…. Read the rest of this post
