Homemade Honey Garlic Sauce

Homemade Honey Garlic Sauce with Ginger

As I’m about to tell you about the value of making your own sauces from scratch, I feel it’s only fair to also tell you I bought a not-insignificant-sized jar of Cheez Whiz last week. So please, don’t take me too seriously. I mostly make my own sauces because I don’t remember to buy them, […]

Oven-Roasted Cauliflower “Steaks”

Cauliflower Steaks | hiddenponies.com

You guys, I’ve been watching “Call the Midwife” on Netflix and learned I am most definitely not cut out to be a nurse. Any woman shows the first sign of being in labour and I am a weepy, sympathetic mess. Post-traumatic stress syndrome for moms is real, I’m sure of it. Then there are the other […]

Mom’s Recipes: Meringue Nests with Lemon Cream and Mixed Berries

Meringue Nest with Lemon Cream and Fresh Berries

Mom’s Recipes: Tomato and Feta Baked Eggs

It’s been almost a year since I was getting ready to move in with my parents for a few months.  Despite missing Carl and being pretty nauseously newly pregnant, those were really good months, and the kids still regularly ask when we can go visit for “12 years” (12 weeks) again. Recipes like this are […]

Frozen Orange Creamsicle Cheesecake

Frozen No-Bake Orange Cheesecake

I think memory foam has gone too far. When it first came out to top beds, I thought it seemed like a reasonably good idea for people who always sleep in the same position. When I saw it in pillows, I understood the value of a well-supported neck, and a pillow that knew where that […]
