Holy moly (in Andy’s words). What a long ass recipe title and what a weekend. If you followed along on Snapchat and Instagram, you know what I am talking about. If not, ummm, why aren’t you following along on, like, the one weekend a year I go out with my gal pals???? I understand. I am sure you live a more exciting life than me so you didn’t want to see all the over drinking and over eating I did all weekend long in my beautiful Chi town. (Recap post coming soon). [Read more…]
Phew. That recipe title is probably my longest to date. Sorry! As you saw from my earlier post, today starts #BrunchWeek 2016. So, a bunch of us bloggers got together and busted our brains and backs coming up with different recipes for you guys. It also happens to be just in time for Mother’s Day, the number one brunching day of the year!
Now that I am a Mom of two, I think I know what I want out of my Mother’s Day. This may be awful to say, but I speak the truth so I am just gunna lay it out there. I kind of just want a day out without my kids. Is that bad? [Read more…]
Hey. How’s the weather? Don’t let the fact that I led off with this question make you think we, as friends, have nothing to talk about because I swear I have a point. Well, maybe not so much a point as a roundabout way of basically telling you that you should make this recipe. But, that is why you come here right?
Most of the US is in the middle of either some kind of rain or snow situation right now. We here in Chicago are in the middle of both. Not like it is snowing and raining simultaneously, but like the weather is deciding what it wants to do, rain or snow. It seems to have decided to just be and look miserable. Even Mother Nature has a case of the winter blues and can’t do her job properly. [Read more…]
I had another baby!!! More details on that coming soon. We are all doing well and are back home now. I don’t mean to pat myself on the back but, I am kinda proud that I am even writing this right now. I totally thought I wouldn’t have time to even think between juggling a toddler and a newborn. But, alas, here I am! [Read more…]
First off, I want to thank all the fellow picky eater parents that reached out to me on Facebook with their best advice. I greatly appreciate your wise words and am already trying out a few techniques. I will get this kid to eat vegetables by the end of the year… Maybe.
On to my next kitchen battle that I need your help with: the slow cooker. I am normally all about the slow cooker this time of year. It is the best friend to the woman/man on the go who still wants to cook a homemade meal. The last time I used my slow cooker was during last month’s brief cold snap. I made my slow cooker minestrone soup. It was delicious if I do say so myself. [Read more…]
