I’ve been making caramel corn as an after-school snack since I was in high school. It’s so dang good. Recently, I added the chocolate…because if you can add chocolate to something, well why wouldn’t you? I think it still makes a good snack for the kids because there’s a little sweetness in there but it’s […]
When my son was in first grade, he insisted on peanut butter and jelly sandwiches in his lunch. Every day. For an entire year. On the first day of second grade, he declared he was tired of them and now…two years later…he still won’t eat them. So I’m always looking for lunch ideas that aren’t peanut […]
We are smack in the middle of Girl Scout cookie season around here…and I find myself surrounded by way more cookies than can possibly be good for me. And while Girl Scout cookies are quite tasty on their own, I wanted to try something new. I came up with this — a cookie within a […]
When my oldest was in kindergarten, he and my husband entered the school’s chili cook-off. And won. He’s now in 6th grade, and every year since, he and his dad have been trying in vain to recapture their former glory. Every year they enter. And every year, the Best in Show Chili Medal has been […]
Since it’s gotten colder, I’ve noticed us having a lot more Crock-Potty things for dinner — soups, chili, BBQ pork. I’ve been making these rolls to eat as well. And since I love my breadmaker more than anything else in my kitchen and use it more than our oven, I made them in there. What […]
The Rudolph Sandwich. He’s got 1/2 a cherry tomato for a nose. Carrot eyes. Pretzel antlers. And apple-slice ears. If I do it again, I think I’ll try sliced olives for his eyes. But he was still yummy. For more Playing With Food, click here.

Is that creepy?)cheese, cut into a smaller circlered and orange bell peppers (cut into strips for feathers, with a triangle for the beak and a slightly larger piece for the waddle)olivespretzels He was delicious.
Hey! I’m co-hosting Must-Try Monday with Carrie@My Favorite Finds! My recipe for Apple Pumpkin Cobbler is below…I hope that 1.) you enjoy it and 2.) you scroll down and leave your contribution. It’s snowing today and I’m feeling like doing some baking… I can’t take total credit for this recipe. It was my husband’s idea […]
I was just talking to my husband about how I planned to blog about a baby shower…at which we played no shower games, and I didn’t really decorate (I did bust out the wedding china, though — I need to do that more often. We really should eat dinner on our china once a week.) […]
I loved getting meals after I had a baby. Those first few weeks, when I was more or less house-bound, seeing people from The Outside World who came over to talk and bring food…I’m pretty sure I cried at least once. If you’re thinking of bringing a meal to a new family, a few tips: 1.) […]
