…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!
Equipped with nothing but an aging cucumber, a handful of baby carrots, some cooked chicken and my pantry I whipped this lunch up today. It was simple and tasty I only wish I had a few more ingredients. Maybe some sprouts, sesame seeds or even celery.
This is another one that’s going to make mom laugh. Besides onion that, as a child, I despised and now can’t live without mushrooms were a close second for most hated veggie. Yet again my mom was right, they are GOOD! especially stuffed! (and in eggs. Yes, I actually had mushrooms twice today.)
This weeks video was recorded completely impromptu tonight. Honestly, I totally decided to skip the gym and make brownies instead. How bad is that?!? I just felt out of it and you can tell! For example, I can’t remember what a toothpick is AND I say it’s Tuesday when it’s really Wednesday. Just out of it! Read the rest of this post
Wanting something “bad” but needing to be “good” I made this Spinach Ricotta Roll yesterday for lunch. Some of you may know my obsession with pizza and pizza like foods (for example stromboli). I basically love anything slapped on some pizza dough, smothered in cheese and dipped in a red tomato sauce. I mean seriously, who doesn’t?? :~)
In the mood for a big Sunday breakfast and only having one egg can make you do funny funny things. ;~P
I fished out an old frozen bag of hash brown cut potatoes. Did you know they were just potatoes? I didn’t. I always thought frozen “hash browns” would be chock full of stuff I didn’t want to eat but on inspection of a few brands, some of them are just shredded potatoes with a preservative. But I digress.

This is a repost. With all my technical issues and site moving over the last couple of years I lost a few ideas. This one has prompted more emails then any other! Originally I made them for the toddler’s 2nd birthday. They came out better then I expected, moist, yummy and HUGE!
I almost didn’t post this because it was one of those quick things I just threw together in shear desperation and even though I jotted down the directions I just thought it wasn’t polished enough to share. Then I mentioned it to my Mother-in-law this weekend. She said it sounded good. So I reconsidered.
I have to add the husband and the toddler both enjoyed it so I’m not sure what was holding me back. Read the rest of this post
