Chop! Chop!

For a long time, I just had 1 cutting board (I don't know how I managed). Then, I got one more. And I still found that I "ran out" of them too fast. You see - I use cutting boards for a lot of different purposes: kneading dough chopping onions mincing garlic grating cheese cubing […]

Themed Weekend: Foodie

Someday, I am going to live in a house that is within walking distance to a grocer, a park, and a little cafe. In the mornings, my kids and I will wonder down to the park to swing and slide and sit in the shade of the enormous trees. Or we might meet a friend […]

DO GOOD with Baked Goods

Today, my 2-year-old and I made miniature chocolate chip muffins (while my 3-month-old watched from her bouncy seat and/or from her perch in my arms). We poured and we measured and we made a mess of flour and sugar and vanilla. We may have stolen a few chocolate chips from the golden-tipped bag. Of course, […]

Favorite Fruits & Vegetables {What are yours?}

I actually enjoy eating fruits and vegetables. It's the preparation part that kills me. Cutting, dicing, chopping, roasting, and grilling are not easy tasks for one-handed mamas.

I'm not a pro at reading food labels, but these snacks do appear to be healthier and more "natural" than other similar snack […]

5 Healthy Snacks for Moms (and their kids too!)

"I want a snack!" I hear that about ten times a day.  My reply? "Say, 'I want a snack, PLEASE'." And then we go about shuffling through our pantry and refrigerator to determine our options. My 2-year-old has definitely picked up on my snacking tendencies. I snack all throughout the day. It's actually a pretty […]

Dream Dinners: A Busy Mama's Dream-Come-True

Tonight I pulled already-prepped calzones out of my refrigerator for dinner. I put them on a baking pan, set a timer, and let the savory smells of cheese, pepperoni, olives, and ricotta fill our house. No stress. No fuss. No hassle. Thanks to Dream Dinners, a meal-prep place that "provides everything you need to assemble […]

I have three favorite appetizers to make when I host parties or am asked to bring one to a baby shower, sporting event, or other get-together: Classic Deviled Eggs Vegetable Tray with Ranch Dressing Spinach Dip in a Bread Bowl All three are tasty, easy to prepare, and relatively healthy. I especially love preparing deviled […]
