I held out on buying an Instant Pot for a long time. We have a lot of kitchen appliances. My husband is obsessed with weird ones from the 1960s that he finds at thrift stores (kebob turner, anyone? Space-age salad spinner that comes with its own pedestal? Please? Take that and I’ll throw in the […]
We’ve been trying out different kinds of nut drinks around here. We’re big on almond milk…and coconut water. So when we had a chance to try out macadamia nut milk, we were all over it. Which is good, because macadamia nut milk is really healthy for you. Like most nuts, macadamia nuts are full of […]
We’re on a roll with the breakfast ideas this week, but these Apple Snickerdoodle Muffins may confuse you. Are they a breakfast? A dessert? A snack? Yes. Mostly what they are, though, is really frigging good. I had them for breakfast, snack, and dessert…and then I sneaked bits of them throughout the day in between. They’ve got […]
This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #20MinutesToTasty #CollectiveBias I’m constantly surprised at how much food my kids can pack away. I have a teen, a tween, and two growing elementary schoolers, and when I look at the aftermath of breakfast around here, I’m always shocked […]
We have busy mornings around here. Four kids, three school drop-offs (sometimes four, depending on the day). Three lunches, four breakfasts, two instruments to remember…and a partridge in a pear tree. So getting ready the night before is key to keeping our sanity in the morning. And that’s where overnight oats come in.
How to esplain the banana chai smoothie? I’m a smoothie girl, but in general I’m a 3-ingredient fruity, yogurty, juicy kind of smoothie girl (unless, of course, you can put some chocolate in it. Then I’m that kind of smoothie girl.) But I’m not a complicated, spice-putting kind of smoothie girl. Until now, I mean. Until. Now. […]
Ohhhh, goodness! I know everyone says it, but I can’t believe it’s a new year already. Wow, that was fast. Did you go somewhere fabulous for New Year’s? I went to a friend’s, and just as I was bemoaning having to put on pants, she texted and reminded me it was a pajama party. Hallelujah […]
My husband gets up for work at 2:30am. I get up at 5. And neither of us has super-powers (if I did, I think the ability to function on no sleep would actually be a really useful power. But flying would be more fun. Oh, this is hard).
This is my family’s hot chocolate recipe. We have it when the weather gets chilly. We have it when we’re looking for a little something sweet along with breakfast. We have it when we visit my parents’ cabin, where my mom taught each of the kids to make it so that she can get up […]
We started back to school this week. And my husband works at 3am. And while these two facts may seem unrelated — they both point to a need for some easy, quick, healthy breakfasts around here.
