Make Ahead Meal Night

Make Ahead Meal Night

Ooookay. Some have you requested to see what that twenty-five meal cooking extravaganza looks like. Word of warning…it’s messy. But really fun and cheap and the best productive mid-week mama get together EVER. It starts a week or so before when I plan all the meals. Then I compile a shopping list and send it … Continue reading

Chocolate Peanut Butter Toffee Pretzels

Chocolate Peanut Butter Toffee Pretzels

Remember yesterday when I said I hadn’t thought of anything creative in the kitchen all week? My creative food juices were just waaaiting and storing up all of of their efforts for these pretzels. Last night after I put Adrienne to bed it struck me… I have a big bag of pretzels that I won’t … Continue reading

Spinach Balls

Spinach Balls

Guess what I’m doing again tomorrow? That twenty-five meal cooking extravaganza in my kitchen. It’s a group of girls (all mamas) I get together with and we make 25 meals and then we each take five home and put them in our freezer. It’s incredibly fun and messy. I promise to document it for you … Continue reading

Three Things

Three Things

1. Look at the pride on that daddy’s face. My heart is a big fat puddle. We think she’ll master ring pull-ups before she walks. 2. The winner of the Jamie Oliver Food Revolution Giveaway (say that five times fast…) is Brittney! Congrats! Look through my recipe pages and let me know what you want … Continue reading

Banana-Oat Bread

Banana-Oat Bread

I sure eat a lot of bananas for someone who doesn’t like bananas. That’s what I was telling myself when I woke up yesterday morning with a hankering for some banana bread. I blame Brutus’s mom. We were out to dinner the other night (with Peyton Manning) and she asked me if I had a … Continue reading

Lunch Lately

Let me start by saying that this story I am going to tell has nothing to do with this salad – which is outstanding and I’ll get to it. Promise. This story is about football. And you know I don’t give a hoot about football, right? Except Tim Tebow. I like him. But that doesn’t … Continue reading

The Comment Conundrum

The Comment Conundrum

Oh hey. Look at Baby A’s new stinky face. She just learned it and I think it’s hilarious. I also think it sums up my exact thoughts about some of you not being able to comment on my blog this week. Stinky. I’ve missed you and your nice/witty/extraordinary one-liners you leave me. I tried to … Continue reading

Tuna Melt Boats

Tuna Melt Boats

Have I told you guys that Meeker is on this low-carb thing? He has been for months, and it’s going really well – he said he feels better than he ever has and he’s lost like 20 pounds. But to be fair, weight falls off of his frame if he so much glances at a … Continue reading

Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution

Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution

You know what I like? The fact that my girl likes fresh, real food. She really does. She loves tomatoes. She flips for raw spinach. Hummus is her best friend, and she can eat two avocados in under two minutes. That’s no joke. I am so, so, so, so happy that she likes healthy-good-for-her-perfect-peachy-chubby-little-body. So, … Continue reading
