Just a quick post about a story which is spreading like weeds, not just here in Michigan, but across the globe. A family in Oak Park, Michigan has planted their front yard with a beautifully maintained vegetable garden and are facing persecution at the hands of the City as a result. Here and here are a couple links to local and [...]
Once in a great while, I see a recipe over at Tasty Kitchen that I need to make immediately. Don’t get me wrong, I see recipes on TK that appeal to me all the time and I file them away in my “Recipe Box” online for future use. But today, when I saw that Pioneer Woman had featured [...]
Let’s call them “Carobars”.
This recipe was really ridiculously easy to formulate. After all, the (incredibly simple) ingredient list on the package practically gives away the whole recipe!
My very good friend (who is gluten intolerant) brought my son a handful of Larabars one day so he could try them out. He liked them and I sneaked [...]
Who doesn’t love to trick their kids? Especially when it comes to eating a healthy balanced diet! This trick is an old one for us, and it originated when my Mother-in-law would make these plates up for the boys’ during their overnight visits. Although both my spawn have aged into the double-digits, they still enjoy [...]
When I made the new bread recipe yesterday, I immediately thought that it would be perfect for French Toast, so this morning the boys enjoyed one of their favorite breakfasts!
Growing up, French Toast was one of the few things my mother made from scratch, if you can call dipping slices of store bought bread into beaten egg “from scratch”! I [...]
I haven’t tried any new bread recipes in a while, but I think my son has been growing bored with the selections I usually bake to keep on hand. We’ve actually been buying Udi’s Gluten Free Bagels quite often lately. Have you tried these yet? They are expensive (about $7 for a pack of 4 at [...]
Happy New Year, Everyone!
How did YOU spend your last evening in 2010?
We celebrated at home with a little party just for us, teaching the kids to play poker and eating snacks. I made Layered Fiesta Dip and The Evil Dip for all of us to enjoy with Tortilla Chips while we homeschooled the kids in the fine art [...]
Have you ever been to a Cookie Exchange? I attended an event many years ago at a friend’s house (Hi, Michele!) and it was a blast. The premise is that each guest brings several dozen cookies, to match the number of attendees, and an extra dozen to share. Each participant then only has to bake one [...]
First, I think it’s important to tell you that this post is in no way sponsored by Trader Joe’s. I just love shopping there and – especially for those of you who may not have yet had the experience – I want to share with you what I love about the store and the products that [...]
I make this frequently whenever my friends and I get together for scrapbooking at my house. The last time, between just three of us, and alongside a plate of warm blue corn tortilla chips, we finished the WHOLE dish! I don’t even want to think about how many calories we each consumed! We all now fondly refer to this as “The Evil [...]
