Maple-Oat Heart Scones – They Work for Me!

Maple-Oat 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

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 […]

Chicken Salad Sandwiches (Recipe Swap: Lunchbox Love)

When I was in high school, I was allowed $5 per week for lunch money. No, I didn’t live during the Depression. Let’s just say frugality runs in my veins. Take it up with my dad. Due to my limited budget, I learned to compensate by packing a lunch. Pops didn’t mind springing for groceries. […]

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 […]

TGIF: Plan a Super Bowl Party

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 […]
