Cranberry Almond Muffins

  I’ve been on this kick where I’ve been trying to limit refined sugar and gluten in my life. This is somewhat hilarious and is certainly not a coincidence to the extreme sugar overdose caused by my last post; Peanut Butter Snickers Cake.   I don’t have any diet restrictions as far as gluten goes, and with that being said I have no […]

Peanut Butter Snickers Cake

  I’d like to start by apologzing, because this cake will be your new enemy. Why? Because it will stare at you until you have devoured every…last…morsel.  And then…then you will dwell on the fact that you ate an entire cake. By yourself. And you will most likely feel completely ashamed, because not only did you […]

DIY Taco Seasoning

My science class has been investigating industrial farming and food, and the kids have selected topics that they’re interested in. I’m pretty sure by the end of it all, I’ll have a classroom full of students looking for organic, free-range, grass-fed, farm raised, non-GMO labels on the food that they eat (sorry parents). Wait. What […]

Toddler/Mom Win: Playdough

After spending a week home with a toddler, I learned very quickly that various forms of entertainment are a must. Most days by the wee hours of 10 a.m. we had rummaged through her entire toy bin, played in her kitchen, read books, colored, put stickers on things, and watched several episodes of Daniel Tiger’s […]

Julie’s Potica

Matt’s grandmother, Julie, was known for many things. And a beloved holiday favorite of the family is potica (po-tee-tsa). Potica is a traditional Slovenian nut roll that was often served at holiday or family gatherings.  I absolutely love when recipes have family ties. I am sure that most anyone can think of a certain dish […]

Almond Poppy Seed Bread with Orange Glaze

I am definitely a brunch person.  There is just something about that sweet and savory meal combo that makes me feel happy. I think that’s why I love our family’s Easter meal so much. Ham, cheesy potato casserole, waffles, sweet bread. YUM. And today I have a most delightful and easy sweet bread for you […]

Stitch Fix Experience

Hey there! This weekend I received my fourth fix from Stitch Fix. When I first discovered Stitch Fix, I was a little skeptical of somebody else picking out my clothing, because I think I am entirely too picky. Once upon a time I loved shopping. Today, it’s just not happening. My clothes shopping is currently limited to […]

Managing the Morning Rush

OK, seriously. Who wouldn’t want to wake up to that? For those of you out there that don’t eat breakfast, I don’t know how you do it. I pretty much go to bed thinking about breakfast. I actually pretty much think about my next meal, always. When I wake up, I immediately head to the […]

Orange Jam

I love making jam.  Strawberry jam, blueberry jam, peach jam…I’ve even made garlic jam. I often like to admire my collection of homemade jams and jellies, tucked away neatly in my pantry. Weird, I know. I am fairly confident that if we were ever stranded at our house without food, we could at least live […]
