Over the weekend, I was busy testing recipes, photographing and preparing for all the work assignments I have due this week. Among the things I had to make was this marshmallow fudge for a post I wrote for Tablespoon. (Psst! Head over there to find out how I started making this in the first place!) […]

Will has an apron with a rocket ship on it. When it comes time to start cooking, he requests it and orders reminds me to get one of my aprons out too. Then he asks where to go. Sometimes, when whatever we are making requires a lot of measuring and stirring, we set up at […]

In thinking about today’s post, I thought it was a little ironic that I wrote about getting your kids more active on Friday and am writing about sweets today. But irony aside, these things can really coexist. Afterall, raising a healthy family and leading a healthy life is not about deprivation. It’s about moderation, balance, […]

Do you have a sweet tooth? My kids and I do. Seriously. So does Shawn. We could eat cookies and cakes and pies all day long. But, indulging that sweet tooth daily with cakes and pies and cookies and brownies … well, that wouldn’t exactly be good for us, right? So we don’t. Instead, we […]

It goes without saying that I love me some dessert. Pie? Yes! Cake? Absolutely! Cookies and brownies? Oh, yes please! But that love does absolutely nothing for my waistline. (Or anyone’s, for that matter.) Frankly, most desserts are filled with calories and fat. Not a good thing. Good news though, there are lighter desserts you […]

“Honey, those cupcakes were bangin’.” – Shawn High praise never fails to make me smile all goofy and wide. Seriously, who doesn’t love to hear that something they made was just awesome? These cupcakes are moist, but dense. The flavor is reminiscent of pumpkin pie, but it has notes of carrot cake too (no carrots […]

Today felt like summer again, with temperatures that encouraged us to shed the socks and pants and re-embrace our leg-baring attire. When I felt how warm it was, I silently wished that the weather would make up its mind: is it winter or summer? But I didn’t really mean it. Summer can stick around all […]

I had every intention of posting my usual Fertile Friday post on Friday. It’s something that I have loved doing all summer, since I am so happy with the progress I’ve made this year. And it’s something that I want to continue until the growing is done. But this past week, I just needed a […]

Nope, I didn’t make this. Virtual Frolic made it as a special surprise for my birthday (which is later this week). The colors were so alluring and vibrant — it’s almost too pretty to eat! Flavored with lemon, it was both refreshing and satisfying. It made for a delish dessert after strawberry picking. Mmm. Good […]

Strawberry season is inching its way closer and closer and I cannot tell you how excited that makes me. I loved heading out to the strawberry patch with my grandmother as a child. We would pick and pick and pick (and eat and eat and eat), red juices flowing down our fingers (okay, maybe it […]
