Pumpkin Apple Breakfast Cookies

I don’t know about you, but our mornings are often chaotic trying to get one or two little ones off to school (depending upon the day) and my husband out the door to work. Luckily I don’t commute very far to work most days! But having time for more than a quick breakfast on the […]

Recipe Redux – Cinnamon Raisin Bread

Have Snacks. Will Travel. This month’s Recipe Redux theme is all about packing healthy snacks for the road. This couldn’t have come at a better time as I was in the airport when I saw the theme with some of my favorite snacks already packed in my bag, as you see in the picture above. […]

Menu Plan Monday – July 15

How do you handle meals for your family if you are out of town? I’m actually gone 4 days this week to a conference, which is probably the longest I’ve ever been away since we had children. Even for short trips though, I always try to leave the refrigerator and freezer well-stocked with staples, leftovers […]

Say Yes to 4 of Children’s Favorites Foods

Recipe Redux – Broccoli & Sausage Egg “Muffins”

This month’s Recipe Redux theme is all about showers, or brunch parties. It is that time of year for baby showers, bridal showers, graduation parties, etc.  My first thought was that my Breakfast Pizza with Cauliflower Crust would have been perfect! Instead, I came up with a dish that would be great for a buffet style brunch, Broccoli […]

Menu Plan Monday – December 24

Happy Christmas Eve! I can’t believe it is almost Christmas. I feel like I’ve been running a marathon but the finish line isn’t in sight.

Recipe Redux – Favorite Kitchen Gadgets

This month’s Recipe Redux is about our favorite kitchen gadgets – just in case you need any last minute gift ideas! I have so many kitchen gadgets and small appliances. Many I use all the time and others probably don’t get enough use. I couldn’t narrow it down to just one, so here are my […]

7 Tips for Enjoying Holiday Meals With Your Infant

This holiday season will be my daughter’s first. She turns 1 year old in January. While she is eating a wide variety of foods and textures, she isn’t quite to the point of eating everything we do.
