Kids in the Kitchen: Tortilla Pizzas

I think it’s great to get kids in the kitchen early and even to arm them with recipes so that once they’re a little older, and staying home alone, you know they can take good care of themselves in the kitchen (without you having to worry about the house exploding while you’re gone). I first…

Blueberry Vanilla Bean Applesauce

Blueberry Vanilla Bean Applesauce

I don’t know why it took me so long to make applesauce. Well, maybe I do – because somehow in my mind it seemed like a laborious difficult process. But it really shouldn’t have taken me so long because it couldn’t be easier. I was originally going to can some but once I tried out…

Remember how I told you I like to scarf down granola bars in the middle of the night but since I haven’t been able to find any here yet I’ve been eating spoonfuls of peanut butter instead? Well, it was just too much for me to bear so I decided to create my own. I may have a…

Christmas is almost here. Ahh! I can’t believe it. Why does it seem to sneak up so fast? I’ve been putting off my Christmas “chores” thinking I’ve got tons of time and am just now realizing that I have to get it all done in less then a week. Overload! My procrastination has gotten the better…

Pumpkin-Spiced Hot Chocolate

Pumpkin-Spiced Hot Chocolate

I’m not much for Halloween. I love the idea of little kids dressing up and the sense  of community when going door to door for candy. But, I just can’t handle the creepy stuff. I find it too… creepy. I always dreaded having to listen to all the scary stories that the teachers told at…
