Baked Parmesan Drumsticks

Baked Parmesan Drumsticks

Who out there struggles with meal planning and cooking at home? Anyone get tired, forget to prepare things ahead of time, and wind up ordering pizza too often? No, just me?

Healthy (and Gluten Free!) Blender Pancakes

Healthy (and Gluten Free!) Blender Pancakes

We had a snow day recently (it’s not as common as you’d think in upstate New York!) and we’ve sort of developed a tradition over the past two winters that every time we have a snow day, mama makes pancakes. I don’t know if the kids understand the connection or just think “Oh…no school? It [...]

I have a serious sweet tooth, but as is with most mamas, our waistlines are not as appreciative. Am I right? I love the blog Gina’s Skinnytaste, as her very popular site (updated almost daily) is dedicated to delicious, healthy and wholesome recipes. Gina has everything from slow cooker meals, drinks, breakfast treats, vegetable side dishes [...]

Meatballs with Hidden Veggies

Meatballs with Hidden Veggies

My son loves the kid’s meatball sub sandwich from Firehouse Subs. Which I find funny because when I make spaghetti with marinara at home, he says he doesn’t like tomato sauce. He even prefers pesto sauce on his pizza instead the the typical tomato-based sauce. But for some reason, in a sandwich form with melted [...]

Chocolate Peanut Butter “Milkshakes”

My love for smoothies and blended drinks is no secret to anyone in my family. I often throw smoothies together for breakfast or a mid-morning snack. Whenever my toddler hears the blender, he comes running and shouts “smoothie!” I happily share with him— especially since I generally make them with fresh fruit, yogurt, veggies and [...]
