The cousins are visiting today. So what do I do with 5 kids age 5 and under? Cookies!
The first time that I cooked a pie pumpkin was last year. I followed directions for roasting it in the oven. That was a lot of work. I like making as much as I can from scratch so I know exactly what we are eating, but there had to be an easier way. The crock […]
Remember back when I made those yummy banana oatmeal cookies? Well now I have a version I whipped up for Ace, our 7 month old. These cookies will help use up the baby cereal that is just sitting in the cabinet. Yeah! I hate wasting. This is so simple.
I. Love. Babies. Sometimes I think I could “collect them all” and would be happy with multiples. Then our toddler does something typical of toddlers, and I come back to reality.

I love cooking. Spending time in the kitchen can be so relaxing for me. Of course it isn’t usually like that with two small boys running and crawling under my feet. But they are the ones for whom I am cooking. The best combination is preparing dinner in my happy place and having the boys […]

I have been hoping to share this recipe with you for over a week! But I have two words: TWO BOYS! My life is always Go Go Go with these two gifts God has given me. I think little boys run on solar energy because all of this time in the sun is putting them […]
Did you wake up this morning and remember it’s Cinco de Mayo? You want to make something fun that everyone will love but don’t have time to run to the store to pick up all of the special ingredients. Make this. My mom started making this for us when I was in high school. It […]
Leftovers. We save them because we have all the best intentions of using them up and saving money. But it’s hard. Reheated food is rarely as appetizing as the original spread. I like coming up with different ways to use those stacks of containers and clean up the fridge. Last week I made Ritz chicken with […]
Last year for Thanksgiving I made a pecan pie that the hubby’s grandpa could eat. I found a recipe that did not call for corn syrup. All that was left to do was minimize the amount of sugar. Now I’m his favorite.
