Living With a Corn Allergy

Living With a Corn Allergy

When you hear of a friend’s child having ‘food allergies,’ you probably think peanuts or eggs. Those allergies are certainly frustrating, (I know, because my son is allergic to both of those things, among others), but the kicker for us is corn. You’d think corn would be easy to cut out of your diet, right? [...]

Boiling Eggs

Boiling Eggs

I never knew there was a right and wrong way to make hard boiled eggs. I had been boiling them wrong basically my entire life. You don’t understand how much you have overcooked them until you have boiled eggs the “right” way.  This is a somewhat trivial thing for me. I mean really, how do [...]

“From Your Freezer to Your Family” Cookbook Review and Giveaway!

I was given the opportunity to review “From Your Freezer to Your Family” by Stephanie Brandt Cornalis of Mama And Baby Love and I was very excited to be able to try out her recipes.

30 Day Clean Eating Challenge and Tips!

30 Day Clean Eating Challenge and Tips!

I’m sure most mamas can relate to how I was feeling a few months after giving birth to my second son. To help in losing the baby weight, I was breastfeeding, *trying* to eat fairly healthy and making it to the gym only on occasion. But caring for a toddler and an infant doesn’t leave [...]

Homemade Granola Bars

Homemade Granola Bars

Granola bars make for a delicious snack. They are filled with oats, dried fruits, sometimes chocolate and they are packed with nutrients. Unfortunately, most kinds you would buy in the store are also filled with a laundry list of ingredients that I’ve never heard of and can’t pronounce. When I started a 30-day clean eating [...]

Tamale Pie

Tamale Pie

This recipe was a staple in my home when I was growing up. It’s one that my mom made that could feed all six of us and occasionally have some leftovers for lunch the next day (and it tastes great as leftovers too!). It definitely qualifies as one of her go-to recipes to feed her [...]

Easy Cream Cheese Pumpkin Cookies

Easy Cream Cheese Pumpkin Cookies

I just love all the pumpkin flavored goodies that become available in the fall. Nothing gets me in the mood for hay rides and pumpkin carving like a delicious pumpkin recipe. I was especially happy to find one that’s so simple that my two year old could assist in me in making it. This one [...]

Homemade Brown Sugar

Homemade Brown Sugar

I love to bake: sweet or savory, breads or cookies. It doesn’t matter. Sometimes I’ll even bake a treat just to create something and then give it to a neighbor. Then there are those late night cookie cravings and a baker with no brown sugar. (Let me be honest: a late night in our home [...]

The Best Lemon Squares Ever

The Best Lemon Squares Ever

Lemon Squares— I don’t even know where my journey starts with these. This is my Grammie’s recipe, so I am sure I had them when she baked them and that is probably where the love started. I have been baking them since I can remember. A definite early memory was when I was 13, I [...]

Feeding a Large Family on a Budget

Feeding a Large Family on a Budget

What is it like to feed a large family on a very tight budget? Here are some of my strategies. First, let me give you a bit of my background. I am the mama to four grown children, all born within two years of each other. I was a stay-at-home-mama in the late seventies and [...]
