What’s a pancake waffle you ask? Well it’s my answer to not really knowing the difference between waffle and pancakes. I *THINK* waffles generally contain a bit more fat and sugar to crisp up more but I’m not sure. Normally I just use pancake batter in the waffle iron leaving them in long enough to crisp up and I’ve never had a problem. Then again I’m not known to follow any traditional rules when cooking. If it’s tasty and we like it then what’s the problem? Read the rest of this post
I have 2 sons, one in preschool and one will be next September. I have to pack them snacks for school and I really don’t want to keep relying on processed snack food for them. What kind of snacks do you give your little boy so he can avoid the processed food trap? Do you have some healthy kid-friendly snack ideas? Fruit just goes so far with my kids!
Ohhh Boy.. school lunches are about to begin for you. Always a hot topic especially this time of year. Read the rest of this post
Sorry for my absence. I was living it up in NYC at BlogHer! Of course what does the husband want to have for dinner my first day back? Pizza. ugh.
My solution… Order a small to minimize leftovers and make a simple salad on the side. Genius right?!? Sorry.. patting myself on the back for this one. Pizza is by far me weakness. So I had one slice and a cup of this salad for a wonderful, satisfying dinner! Read the rest of this post
I came home from work with a mission to cook a healthy meal with the little guy. I had defrosted scallops, some minute rice, and fresh sugar snap peas. Add in some pantry items like lime juice, lemon juice, soy sauce, sesame oil and ginger. Viola! A 20 minute meal. Read the rest of this post
I have confessed my dislike of mayo many times. Most recently on my Garden Tuna Salad with Feta idea. Unfortunately this dislike of one particular condiment has kept me from enjoying some pretty tasty traditional sandwich salads like tuna and chicken.
Honesty, I never understood peoples fascinations with these deli favorites. What the big deal anyway?
This morning I needed a little kitchen therapy. I’ll probably explain why over on my weight loss blog later but I don’t feel like hashing it all out right now. Let’s just say I needed some time with myself doing what I love, experimenting in the kitchen. So that is what I did. :)
This is it. My last official post as an Athenos Spokesblogger. It’s sort of sad but not really because I get to give stuff away to you! That always makes me happy! :)
First let announce the winner of last week’s Fabulous Feta Giveaway! Please congratulate Lori H.! She will be receiving the Athenos prize pack that includes the following items:
Well, I did it. I really did it! I have to admit part of me didn’t think it was possible. When ATHENOS asked if I’d be willing be a Spokesblogger for their Make a Change for the Feta campaign. It included creating 18 Feta Cheese ideas for the month of July and I was a little nervous. With a family, a full time job and a vacation planned would it even be possible?
Over and over and over again you guys kept suggesting feta with eggs and I just didn’t see it. If you’ve been reading for awhile you know I absolutely hate cheese on eggs. I’m not sure why. I love eggs. I LOVE cheese but put them together and…. ick, at least in my opinion.
I decided to face my fears this morning and take your suggestion. Worst case scenario…. I don’t like it. It wouldn’t be the first time I cooked something that just didn’t work out. Read the rest of this post
I think my name for this idea if longer then the actual recipe!
Tuesday night is rough for us. Little Guys has karate, the husband as Gaelic Football practice and I’m on dinner duty as usual. (note: I’m never NOT on dinner duty. That’s what happens when you marry a non-cook, non-foodie.)
I’ve never eaten coleslaw in my life. Is that weird? Isn’t that was a cabbage salad is?
Anyway, I was armed with the cutest little heads of cabbage from the farm and, yup you guessed it, feta. :) So i decided to combine them together and I’m so glad I did! This was fabulous! I almost ate the whole bowl in one sitting. I had to force myself to save it for dinner.
You may or may not have noticed but we’ve been severely slacking in the video department. Life has just been too crazy. Once I’m full time blogging I’ll get my weekly groove back.
