Bread: 101, the No Knead Bread

One of the things I really love making is bread.  There’s nothing like the smell of yeast in the kitchen to make me feel at home and put a smile on my face.  And although I used to make bread every week, I don’t get a chance to so often right now.  At least I try to make it on holidays and birthdays and such. It usually disappears in one […]

She Makes Cherry Pie!

A couple of days ago, I made this pie and just before putting it into the oven I snapped a shot with my cell phone and posted it to Facebook. One of my friends asked for the recipe, and it’s only now that I have been able to sit down for the first time to write it up.  So this is for you, girlfriend.  You know who you are, and […]

30 Days of Christmas Inspiration – Day 6 – Christmas Cookies

Today was a particularly odd day for me. The boys slept so well last night in their new beds and even today, they slept their naps without much fuss. Instead of using some of their nap time to get some housework done, I ended up making a comfortable little bed on the boys bedroom floor and snuggling up for a little nap myself.  I have been plagued this last week […]

30 Days of Christmas Inspirations – Day 2

I remember going to holiday parties as a child and always wanting to try the eggnog – and people saying that I couldn’t because there was alcohol in the drink.  When I was a teenager, I was able to try the eggnog the came in the supermarket shelves during the holidays – and as I gagged on the flavor, I thought that I would never ever ever try eggnog again.

Easy Peasy Focaccia and Butternut Squash Soup

It’s time. Since three days it’s been cloudy and grey outside. Boo. I’ve been busy with the boys; running to the doctors, getting them organized, trying to organize my house (that’s a constant) and trying to find the time when I can to express the million ideas running around in my head. I needed to get in the kitchen. I needed to let my brain relax and just spend time […]

Breakfast of Champions

The boys start their days out around 8:30 – 9am every day. After their 12 hour sleep, I like to start their days out right, especially in the cooler winter months like now.  Nothing keeps us going and warm like one of their favorite meals, Oatmeal. Since there is no instant oatmeal here, I use oats, and I feel good cause it’s my way of hugging my kids from the […]
