Recipe Swap MakeOver

URS

I was feeling a little sad that I didn’t have some really cool name for my recipe carnival that I host on Thursdays. I mean, “Works for Me Wednesday” or “Frugal Friday” each have such a ring to them. But, Recipe Swap? Well, sounds a little plain jane. Not that there’s anything wrong with being […]

Maple-Oat Heart Scones – They Work for Me!

heart scones

I’m not sure if it’s his age or his personality, but FishBoy 6 has been loving all sorts of cooking and crafting activities lately. I have a myriad of pink, handcut hearts strewn all over the school room floor as he has been working on Valentines this week. Yesterday he helped me prepare a veggie […]

Memory Making Meals

2007-February-003

Since we’re such food freaks over here, many of our memories are linked to eating. When FishPapa and I were dating, we often went out to eat or cooked meals together. When we honeymooned in France, some of our most fun experiences took place in restaurants. In our newlywed years we made it a habit […]

Time Saving Tip: Make Lunch the Night Before

Cherry Tomato on Sandwich

I’m guessing that for most families whose kids attend traditional schools making lunch the night before is a pretty common practice. Since my children “do school” at home, it might not seem all that necessary. We’re home most of the day, so why do we need to do that? But, oh what a help it […]

How We’re Rolling This Week

The days are just full, aren’t they? My baby is already five months old. Can you believe that? How did that happen? She rolled over last week for the first time. So fun! This weekend we had a great time visiting with friends and eating all sorts of fun food. The days just flew. Now […]

Personally, I’m not all that into football or the SuperBowl. In fact, I am not really sure who’s playing. Once the Chargers lost, I lost interest. But, I know that FishPapa and the boys enjoy watching and rooting for their favorite teams. And that’s a good thing, because it got me cable tv which in […]

Cake Cheating

2007-May-048

Personally, I like pie. Lemon Meringue Pie. Apple Pie. Berry Pie. Cheesecake. Yeah, that’s a pie more than a cake in my book. And since I’m a food snob, I’ve been making pies from scratch for a long time, since I was 10 and my dad conned me into it. But, awhile ago I found […]

Meal Planning: Hoping for Fair Skies Ahead, Yet Preparing for Stormy Weather

2009-January-273

We saw several ships like this one yesterday in San Diego Harbor. Magnificent! This week is a busy one: The regular routine of school, housework, life, plus some important writing projects, a playday with friends, FishPapa’s Birthday, and of course, my Birthday Cake Round Up on Thursday. I am hoping for “sunny skies and fair […]
