It’s been really warm here lately, signaling that summer is on the way.  This means it’s time to change things a bit.  There won’t be as many soups and stews on the menu  but there will more grilling options and lighter fare. So, I’m declaring Thursday night “grill night” and Friday will be kept kind […]

April is a special month for a couple of reasons. First, it’s Little D’s birthday. And second, it’s my birthday 3 days after his. I used to think it was good to have my birthday over-shadowed by my kid (getting older blah, blah blah), but now I want my birthday back. So I make a […]

I hope you are all doing well.  We are starting this week with fish tacos, a meal I just recently mastered.  I have tried and failed many times at this dish.  Last time I made it my husband said. “These are really good.”  The secret for me is to bread and bake the fish instead […]

I hope you had a wonderful holiday and are ready to get back to a routine. I know I am. I’ve decided to practice new recipes at home before trying them for my family. It’s just too stressful to make something totally new unless it’s something I know I can pull off. So once a […]

This is the week all the madness of the holiday starts! We’re hosting Thanksgiving this year and to make things easy we have everyone bring something.  My sister in law will bring mashed potatoes.  One of my mothers-in-law (I have two) will bring sweet potato casserole and the other will make the stuffing.  My mom […]

I hope you all made it though Halloween and are enjoying the extra hour of sleep you gained!  I  had a crazy week with my last day of work.  But now I have a little more time.  And at least some of that time will be spent in the kitchen and blogging. We are taking […]

Two weeks of school are done.  As far as meals go, my biggest challenge has been Thursday night soccer practices. Big A has them at 5:30 to 7pm.  So we were eating after practices but that seemed too late.  So last week I tried having dinner early and the kids weren’t that hungry because it’s […]

It’s the last week before school for us.  There is so much to do to get ready, and because I’m a last minute person, it has to be done this week (which is why this is a day late). Big A has also started soccer practice on Thursdays from 5:30 to 7:00.  That makes it […]

August already?  I can’t believe how fast the summer is going.  All of July I kept thinking how this has been the best summer with the kids.  There are no diapers or major meltdowns.  And they seem to get along most of the time.  But now that August is here I’m slowly starting to crave […]

Hello everyone!  I hope your summer is going well so far.  Last week our family was hit with a stomach bug and we went down one at a time.  I thought I was going to be spared but just as the kids were back to their energetic selves I caught it (though less severe).  But […]
