The Forgetful Momma: No egg, no butter pancakes.

I can’t really call myself a forgetful momma, because, well, I was this way pre-baby. Grocery lists and I are enemies of the biggest kind. I can remember childhood friends old house phone numbers. I can remember any birthday. Addresses. Names of all of my teachers. My brain retains some of the craziest, pointless “facts”. […]

Cooking Workout #1: Chicken & Shoulders.

Let’s start a new trend here. This is for all of my busy mommas out there who want to get in shape, but just don’t have the time. The mommas who work all day, tend to the household duties, and the kids. The stay at home mommas who don’t have a spare minute between keeping […]

A Food Thing: Cinnamon Swirl Protein Bread.

If I thought there was never a dull moment in this household before, having a baby has certainly changed that. Everything has changed, yet it’s all still the same (if that makes any sense to someone who doesn’t have newborn baby fried brain like me). I like to cook. Baking? I have very little patience […]

Foodie Friday: Jamie Eason’s Turkey Meatloaf Muffins.

Foodie Love: The One Dish Kind.

I love to cook. There is no way around it. When I first started out on my own, even though a lot of it was boxed, canned, or 75% prepped already for me, I found I enjoyed cooking. As time passed, I got damn good at cooking from recipe books and making my own recipes. […]

Sausage and cucumbers. Together?

I know I’ve got the category Foodie Friday. And I know I’ve tagged this post in it… But it couldn’t wait. This was just too yummy to keep to myself any longer (I made it two weeks ago). Just because you’re pregnant, doesn’t mean you have to listen to everyone out there who thinks you […]

Best Protein Pancakes you’ll ever eat.

My biggest weakness is a tall stack of French toast and a heaping plate of bacon. After changing my eating habits, it became my go-to cheat meal quite a bit. When I was younger, my mother would sometimes make “Brinner” (breakfast for dinner) and I would be on cloud nine. I love pancakes well enough, […]

Balsamic & Basil Vinaigrettes

In the summer time, I’m a big light flavor person. When I indulge in a beer, it’s a light beer (Sam Adam’s Porch Rocker comes to mind…). And I like things that are simple, quick and easy to throw together and toss on the grill. Chicken and pork are always my go-to’s for meal prep […]
