Here we are, halfway through the school year, and this is where things in the food department tend to grind to a crawl- if not an all out halt. I don't know about you and yours, but in my house weekday breakfasts and lunches are getting to be an unpleasant chore. I ask the kids … Continue reading So. Sick. of. Cereal!- Soft Breakfast Oat Bars
Good grief, it's been almost a year. A year!! SO MUCH has happened in that year, and I wasn't sure if I would ever get to come back. I've wanted to, but it just hasn't been in the cards until now. I wasn't sure if anyone would even care at this point if I came back. But … Continue reading I’m Alive and Kicking- Really!
I'm not really one for food fads. I was tired of the make-every-food-rainbow-colored fad in super short order, the macaron fad got boring pretty quickly, and if I see one more carb dish "made over" with cauliflower (yuck!) I swear I'll scream. However, I have to say that I am totally on board with the … Continue reading Jumping on the Pumpkin Bandwagon- Pumpkin Pancakes
So after being informed by my BFF that the print feature I added awhile back actually prints the entire blog post instead of only the recipe like I wanted it to, I have (with a little help from a more experienced blogger) figured out how to make only the recipe in each post printable. Yay! … Continue reading Easy Printing… For Real This Time
Yes; you read that right: Maple Syrup Dumplings. As in soft, pillowy biscuit-style dumplings in a smooth sauce of maple syrup. Because sometimes it's SO HARD to get out of bed with all of the not-so-great stuff you may have going on in life and you just need something indulgent and comforting for breakfast. Or … Continue reading Comfort Food for Breakfast- Maple Syrup Dumplings
So here we are in one of the coldest parts of the country, and we moved here willingly- happily even. Believe it or not, we wanted to move to northern Wisconsin. When my husband got his job with the railroad and it became very clear that staying in Colorado wasn't going to be an option, … Continue reading Cold Morning, Hearty Breakfast- Farina, AKA Cream of Wheat
We are preparing to delve into the world of homeschooling this year. We've felt the need to homeschool for years but were never in a position to be able to until now. So we won't have the hustle and bustle of trying to get out the door in time to meet the bus this year. … Continue reading Sometimes Grab and Go is a Blessing- Chocolate Chip Muffins
I've had some requests for a "print recipe" feature, so I looked around and found one of those! You can now find a new button on each post. It's labeled "print and PDF" and it can be found at the very bottom of each post along with the sharing buttons. You're welcome and thanks for … Continue reading I’ve Added a New Feature!
I think one of my absolute favorite desserts is pie. I love cake- but only with a generous amount of frosting on top, thank you very much. And I adore New York style cheesecake, especially with some caramel drizzled over it. (I'll eventually get around to posting my cheesecake recipe). And ice cream is always … Continue reading Legitimately Having Pie for Breakfast- Apple Pie Waffles
Let me be perfectly clear: this is not SOS (Sh*t On a Shingle for those not in the know). I've had some try to call it that and I set them straight immediately. They have not made that particular mistake again. SOS is what you get out of desperation when all you have to work with is … Continue reading Don’t You Dare Call It SOS- Sausage Gravy
