How to Make Pancakes in Fun Shapes Your Kids Will Love (PHOTOS)

poj0qwv50k How to Make Pancakes in Fun Shapes Your Kids Will Love (PHOTOS)Breakfast is hands-down the best meal of the day for moms to really show their stuff with minimal effort. Eggs, bacon, waffles — it’s all good, and there’s so much you can do with it that doesn’t take a ton of time, but looks like you slaved.

I think we can all agree: That’s a big mom win!

We’re often in such a hurry in the morning that we don’t pay a lot of attention to that super important first meal of the day. But on weekends or days off, or any time you have a few… Continue reading

Labor Day Round-Up

by Pam on August 28, 2014

The summer season is ending and I am okay with that. We have had a very fun filled summer vacation but I am ready for fall cooking & sitting by the fire. Labor Day marks the end of the summer for me with my kids going back to school and the weather becoming cooler. I will miss hanging out with my kids all day but I will also relish being in a quiet house during the day too! Here are some recipe ideas to help you end your summer and celebrate Labor Day –… Continue reading

Veganzola cheeseball

It has been quite a week.  Our car has been stolen.  Our car has been found.  Our car has gone to the mechanic’s for damage assessment now that our insurance company finally has taken it from the police.  Sylvia’s lovely duffle coat went in the car and never came back.  So I have spent a lot of time on hold on the phone, got dates muddled, spilled half a jar of chilli sauce, forgotten to take goggles to the pool and been dressing sylvia in 2 cardigans on the cold mornings.  I feel a bit like the mashed tofu in… Continue reading

Banana Carrot Bread

It’s taken me years to try this recipe (my sis-in-law gave it to me probably eight years ago and even posted it on her recipe blog she keeps up with her sisters). And I’ll freely admit the only reason I gave it a go now (what can I say, bananas and carrots don’t really call to me as epic combination of the year) is because during our recent move, this recipe literally fell out of my recipe binder and into my hands as I was unpacking, and in light of the fact that the only other things to fall randomly… Continue reading

DSC 81001 Blueberry and Yogurt Popsicles

It’s been hot around here lately and my kids have been wanting frozen treats so I decided to make some healthier ones for them. I had them pick out what flavor yogurt they wanted – my daughter chose vanilla and my son chose lemon. I made a quick blueberry sauce then strained it so it was just liquid then swirled it together with the different yogurts. I put them in popsicle molds and popped them in the freezer for 24 hours. They were super quick, easy, and much healthier than… Continue reading
