Spiced Coconut Milk Cauliflower

Spiced Coconut Milk Cauliflower

This is another one of those ‘not really a recipe’ recipes. Painfully simple and crowd pleasing too! I made these for the first time at Thanksgiving and a few times since then for dinner guests and everyone loves it. When I first read about it, […]

Homemade Ketchup

Homemade Ketchup

Generally speaking, ketchup is king with little kids. I know a few littles that don’t like it at all (aliens, obviously) but as a rule, kids and ketchup are a great pair. I have seen a lot of parents (among other family members) make a […]

Twice Baked Potatoes

Twice Baked Potatoes

As I collect ideas for Thanksgiving and try them out on my (thankfully willing) family, I am also collecting ideas for Christmas and I may or may not be knitting at a break-neck pace to try to knit up and otherwise craft all these fun […]

Mozzarella Sticks

Mozzarella Sticks

Mozzarella Sticks are standard pub fare and often accompany pizza on family game night with garlic bread, because when are you ever going to have time to make them yourself – and why would you? They must take hours right? And you can’t just make […]

Menu Monday is back by popular demand – who knew you guys cared about Menu Monday?! Thanks for the emails, ladies! šŸ˜‰ I write out the menu and usually stick it somewhere visible in the kitchen. Wee One #1, who has all of a sudden […]

Broccoli Gratin

Broccoli Gratin

I absolutely hate broccoli. I know, I know. But I do. I usually make soup out of it and add either potato until it’s crazy creamy or I add cauliflower to mask the taste. Otherwise, I steam and puree it so I can add it […]

Bacon-Cheddar Potato Rounds

Bacon-Cheddar Potato Rounds

It’s no secret that I’m big on full-out meal planning, so of course I have been trying to map out a wonderful Thanksgiving celebration – especially since this year it involves a longish road trip and a long time, long distance friend. It’s also no […]

Vegan ‘Goldfish’ Crackers

Vegan ‘Goldfish’ Crackers

Ok so, as you are all painfully aware by now, I’m the biggest fan girl there ever was for Peas and Thank You and for Mama Pea’s cookbook. I will have to tally it up but I think I have made almost all of the […]
