This Saturday, I will start feeding my 6-month-old purees. I plan on making all of them, because I’m not a huge fan of the jarred baby food from the store. I have a personal philosophy that if I wouldn’t eat it, my kids should stay far from it! When I started making baby food, IContinue Reading..
On our first date, my husband and I ate Cornflake Casserole. That first date was 8 years ago today, so, to commemorate, I give you Cornflake Casserole. Another name for this dish is “Funeral Potatoes,” because they are normally served after funerals here in Utah. Our family’s version is pretty different from most Funeral Potatoes.Continue Reading..
Who here wants a nice slice of warm homemade bread smothered with fresh butter and jam? I know I do. Who wouldn’t? It’s amazing to me that less than 100 years ago, eating fresh like this was the norm. Now it’s so common to buy bread, jam, and butter (or margarine) that we get superContinue Reading..
I was trying to think of black and white food to make for the World Cup this year, and I thought of a recipe I found on Pinterest for Cookies ‘n Cream Popcorn. Cute, right? I wanted to see if there were any other recipes like this, so I searched for “soccer popcorn” and IContinue Reading..
When I was planning the itinerary for our vacation to Seattle last August, I wanted to make time to go berry picking with our 13-month-old. In my search for a berry-picking farm, I came across numerous farms in both Oregon and Washington, but I settled on a few in Washington since we wanted to seeContinue Reading..
Living with an Argentine fútbol fanatic goes something like this: “Vamos vamos Argentina!! Vamos vamos a ganar!” and “Vamos Argentina todavia!!” You can’t forget: “GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL” (deep breath) “GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL” He is loud. And obnoxious. But I love him 🙂 (click here to watch a segment of a video on YouTube that will help you hear whatContinue Reading..
I tend to view Mother’s Day as almost more important than Father’s Day. I guess it’s because my own dad doesn’t like gifts or sentimental things, like letters, as much as my mom (well, maybe he does, but he wouldn’t say he does), so it doesn’t seem like a big deal. This year, however, I’d likeContinue Reading..
I want to share a short and savory recipe with you today, hailing from Argentina: Chimichurri Sauce. Since my husband is from Argentina, he obviously loves his Argentine cuisine. I think it’s funny when people think he eats tacos or spicy food. Just FYI, Mexico is a good 3,100+ miles from Argentina (as the crow flies). ArgentineContinue Reading..
Before two months ago, I had never bought red cabbage. So why did I suddenly decide to buy it? I found a recipe that sounded yummy. Even though I knew I would only use a small amount of the entire cabbage, I bought it anyways. After I made the recipe, and the cabbage sat inContinue Reading..
Baby food comes in many different forms from the store, so it’s refreshing to know that you can make your own. But where do you start? That’s what I would like to share with you below. I have personally used many different baby food resources including books and websites, and I will share with youContinue Reading..
I became a mother nearly two years ago, and what an overwhelming title being a ‘Mommy’ is! Since then, I’ve been pregnant again (I know, right!) and already gave birth to the second one. Both times my beautiful babies were placed in my arms for the very first time, I was so humbled to know IContinue Reading..
