Did I ever tell you guys how much I love bean dip. I mean really I LOVE it. I don’t know if it’s the texture or the spicy kick that gets me. All I do know… sit me down with a bag of tortilla chips and a jar of bean dip and I’m good for the night. Forget it, skip the chips, just give me the dip and a spoon. Now that I’m thinking of it, I don’t even need the spoon, my finger works just fine. ;~) Read the rest of this post
I don’t know WHAT came over me last night. It was 10PM and I “wanted something”. So I hit the kitchen with an empty stomach and some inspiration from these pumpkin cookies.
I fear calling mine cookies as they really aren’t. I don’t like to sugarcoat what I make (literally and figuratively :~P) so I’ll simply call these “bites”. Read the rest of this post
Remember on my about page how I mentioned sometimes I just cook for me. Well, this is one of those times. Without having to please the husband or the toddler I hit the ground running with leftovers I found in the fridge. Let me just say, right now, as I eat this. I’m SO happy I have a picky husband for the pure fact that I DON’T want to share! Read the rest of this post
As I say the video, I had the idea of showing you how the toddler and I eat pomegranate last year but my plans were foiled. Apparently you can’t get pomegranates out of season, at least where I live. So I had to wait until they were in stores again. When I saw them this weekend I HAD to pick some up. Read the rest of this post
Don’t get your hopes up, it’s more oatmeal then pie. And since we are in full fledge fall I just had to do something my canned pumpkin. Just HAD to! ;~P
I’m getting more into oatmeal but not the pre-packages flavors. I really want to find ways to make it fun and tasty at home without using a pre-flavored package with all the junk in it. Read the rest of this post
I admit it. I was scared to try Bulgur. I didn’t even know what it really was? A grain? a special king of rice? What? WHAT?
Geesh! Doesn’t there seem to be so many new and crazy options in the whole grain department anymore. Right?
Yup, I’m at it again. Messing with those Ramen noodles (Click here to see my other Ramen ideas). Here’s the deal, it’s Friday, I’m in desperate need of a grocery shopping trip. I just got home from a 2 hour workout with an awesome trainer who kicked my butt and, dude, I was HUNGRY.
…and I mean quick! Seriously, the video is 15 minutes. It took me 15 minutes to make a warm, healthy home cooked breakfast for the toddler before school. That 15 minutes included a bit of discipline, a pumpkin show off, a mini-commercial, the toddler cracking my eggs and scooping my spices. It was fun, fast, healthy, and everything I want family time to be (although, I do have to curb the toddler’s self expression to talk to you! LOL) Read the rest of this post
This was a quick idea after having nothing ready for dinner. I was fighting off the urge to order in and I needed to please both the husband and the toddler. Now that’s no easy task! :~)
Somehow I succeeded! The only thing the husband said was it could have used a bit more garlic. I, on the other hand, thought it was the perfect amount. The hint was there without being overpowering and I couldn’t add more anyway, I used all that I had! Read the rest of this post
Oh my Word! I LOVE this soup! I found myself Friday with a crap load of veggies and craving for a nice healthy bowl of warmth. And boy was it perfect timing as a cold front just came in!
I made this on Friday during a complete food fest. The toddler was home form school and we spent the better part of the day in the kitchen like two happy clams chatting and munching. It was so much fun!
In this week’s video the toddler and I make on of my older recipe ideas for dinner. There’s lots of toddler interruptions, a pee pee break, a fart, the boob shot and just overall toddler-cooking craziness!
