Say what?! I went and took a picture of a dinner recipe, which means you know you need to make it. If you like pasta, that is. I hosted a bake exchange last night that resulted in 12 kinds of amazingness in my freezer that I’m trying not to think about so it will last longer than […]

Slow Cooker Beef & Barley Risotto

We’re 2 months into this new baby thing, and dare I say I think we’re getting into the swing of things?  I feel like it’s risky to put that out there but, knock on wood, he now goes down consistently around 8:00pm, sleeps mostly-consistently through the night, is learning to enjoy his swing or his daddy […]

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 […]

How to Stock Your Freezer (and what to make)

Thank you all so much for your incredible support and encouragement after yesterday’s post.  It’s amazing how, when you talk about something, you suddenly find so many other people who have struggled or are struggling with the very same thing, and it’s always good to know you’re not alone.  This may be a silly little online […]

Tomato Basil Chicken Casserole

It’s been too long since I posted a must-make dinner recipe, hasn’t it?  It could be because I don’t like to cook actual dinners when the weather gets hot, or because my baby is getting so big it is making my stomach too small to care much about whole meals and increasing my personal body heat […]

Basque Chicken Drumsticks

Basque Chicken Drumsticks

Today I’m responsible for feeding 200 people.  Monday I shopped like it wasn’t my money, Tuesday I prepped like I was actually going to benefit from it, and today all that food disappears into (hopefully) smiling faces.  I won’t know because I have to leave as soon as it’s set up to write an exam on the cheery subject […]

Crispy Baked Chicken Fingers

Summer is suddenly upon us here, at least for a couple days until spring reasserts itself, and I’m starting early on my annual bid for air conditioning.  I love a sunny day as much as the next guy, but a hot house is looooow on my list of good things.  Let’s see, wheerrrrre is it, […]
