For some reason, it seems to be very challenging to eat vegetables. Why is that? I always think of a meat to make for each meal, and also fruit seems so easy to just grab and go! But veggies? They are slightly missing in my diet, but I WANT THEM BACK. I do, however, find […]
When my little man was almost 15 months, I learned a LOT about making toddler food. I have this awesome friend who has always made her son’s baby food, generally from organic ingredients found at Whole Foods, unlike me who was addicted to the Earth’s Balance squeeze packets. She is awesome; and I somehow convinced […]
Derrick is sick today, poor guy. He stayed home after a long night hugging the toilet and morning of nausea. It scared Aidan; at least enough to stay out of the bedroom where Derrick was resting, so that is good. Despite having a sick husband in the other room, I still cooked up a million […]
I’m always on the look out for ways to add new things to Aidan’s diet. I like knowing that he is eating healthy and getting some variety in his diet. Sometimes I even will think to myself “Gosh, if I ate like Aidan maybe I wouldn’t have to work out so hard to lose weight!” […]
Another great idea from Pinterest, though I changed up the recipe because I didn’t want to bother with making the syrup or going to the store for pumpkin spice. I do love finding new things for Aidan to try though, because (poor kid) I am pretty stuck in my ways on some of his freezer meals. These were yummy though, and he had a great time! After a few bites, he set his breakfast down just to clap with delight. I would call that a success. I’m going to try to freeze a few of these too and I’ll let you know how it goes; I figure we could use a few more quick breakfast foods.
The only downfall to the whole breakfast routine is that 1) I let him have syrup to dip his pancakes in, which wouldn’t be a problem except that 2) we are having trouble with him occasionally rubbing food in his hair. Needless to say, he ended up with syrup on the side of his head. Ugh. And so the day begins.
I’m excited to incorporate all of my bountiful basket items into various dishes this week, and post on the progress. This is recipe #1. I’ll ultimately post a complete review of the bountiful baskets and the meals that I made from them each time I order. I’ve decided to give them a full try for 5-6 times before I completely decide if it is a good/bad deal for our family. Hurray for something new and fun!
The fall… oh me oh my. Sweaters, the changing of the leaves, crisp fresh air, and of course THE FOOD. I think that I gain weight every fall/winter because there is just something especially nice about warm hardy meals in the fall. Are you with me? Let me hear an UUHHHH HUH! Well, this isn’t […]

I cannot believe that my little man is already a year old! We did a “Little Man” theme for his birthday, and I wish that didn’t strike such a cord with me – my baby has turned into a little man! I made little bow ties and head bands for the kids and we met […]
I love the summer. I hate the yard work that it brings, but I honestly love the weather. Another thing that I love is the grill, ahem, grilled food I mean. I don’t BBQ – that is in my husband’s realm of expertise; which is another reason to love grilled food! Generally I prep and […]
Like I’ve said before, I’m a little addicted to fixing up some yummy bites for my little guy. However, it’s really easy to get stuck in a rut with the same things over and over – like my butternut squash and sweet potato oatmeal that I feed him almost every other breakfast. So, I like […]
