Bagels & Crunchy Peanut Butter

April 19, 2013

  Growing up in the South, we didn’t do bagels.  Now, there are numerous bagel shops around town, but in my younger years, breakfast side options consisted of toast, biscuits, or grits.  I clearly remember my first bagel encounter.  We were on the way to elementary school, and a girl in my carpool was eating […]

March 18, 2013

So, I stopped doing formal reviews of products on the blog a while ago for several reasons, mostly because they were starting to feel icky?  Lame?  I don’t know, they just no longer felt right.  I also don’t have a lot of time to blog these days, and therefore, I like to fill this space […]

Maggie has declared March the Month of Macrobiotics. I’ve always been intrigued by the Macrobiotic lifestyle, and although it’s never something I could do 100%, I do like many of the principles.  So, I decided to partake and make more of an effort when it comes to meal preparation.  We still keep meals pretty simple […]

March 1, 2013

Lou asked how I made the tie dye onesies for the baby shower last weekend.  Lou, this post is for you. 🙂 A friend of mine had a hard time finding plain colored onesies for her son and decided to make her own using Rit Dye.  Using her idea, I simply wrapped rubber bands around […]

Bah-Nana Bread

This morning, I hosted a baby shower for a good friend… We brunched… There were quiches (thanks mom & Jessica!), sausage balls, quinoa salad, homemade biscuits (thanks again mom), and chocolate turtle and white chocolate raspberry flavored Bundtinis.  LOVE Bundtinis! There was also some delicious gluten free banana bread.  Summer loves her bah-nanas but usually only […]

No More Saltines

February 5, 2013

All five of us got hit with that nasty stomach virus going around, and wow, that was not fun.  Not fun AT ALL.  Do you know what’s worse than puking and running to the bathroom hour after hour when all you want to do is lie in bed and sleep?  Watching your three babies go […]

December 26, 2012

Our first Christmas together as a family of seven! (Mom, Dad, three kids, and two dogs). We spent a quiet Christmas Eve at home just being together.  The shopping was done (thank you Internet!), and all that was left to do was put on our Christmas PJ’s and have some fun in the kitchen. We […]
