Happy New Years Eve (and a Deceptively Delicious round up)

Happy New Years Eve!! Tonight we’ll celebrate with the littles early and call our parents and then we’ll celebrate at midnight and call a bunch of friends on the East coast at 3am. Hehe. That means YOU, Talea! I am looking forward to tonight, but I’ll wait and show you all the silly fun tomorrow!!… Continue reading Happy New Years Eve (and a Deceptively Delicious round up)

Deceptively Delicious Peanut Butter and Jam Muffins

Just like with a lot of kids, peanut butter and jam is a real weakness with mine. A weakness I try my best to exploit – to their own advantage, of course! As with all the recipes in Jessica Seinfield’s book, there is a hidden vegetable snuck into these muffins. Some of the recipes in… Continue reading Deceptively Delicious Peanut Butter and Jam Muffins

Oreo Kisses, a Smore Package and Rice Balls with Hidden Veggies

There has been a lot of cookie baking going on around here and actually, a whole lot of other treat making and painfully-from-scratch cooking going on as well. So much that I’m going to just have to post a heap of my queue as thumbnails to get through it all so I can post the… Continue reading Oreo Kisses, a Smore Package and Rice Balls with Hidden Veggies

Knitting, knitting, knitting and maybe sewing….

This post title does not at all describe what I’ve added to the site today, just what’s keeping me from adding more. Whenever my amazing, wonderful yarn-spree-paying-for husband buys me heaps of yarn, all I want to do is knit it up. We have been buying from Knit Picks a lot lately, not just because… Continue reading Knitting, knitting, knitting and maybe sewing….

I’m a Sucker for Apothica (plus Banana Bread, Rolo Cookies and Scrapbooking Paper)

I was pretty proud of myself with today’s updates for you. I added some really amazing Rolo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies to the Domestic section, then wee little Post It Packages from scrapbooking paper (which are really, really cute, I have to say) in the Crafty section and I even managed to get my Deceptively… Continue reading I’m a Sucker for Apothica (plus Banana Bread, Rolo Cookies and Scrapbooking Paper)

Homespun Chocolate Bars, Cake, Cookies and Even a Chicken Salad

With just six school days left, there has been a lot of planning for end of year treats for the kids’ classes and their teachers. It’s a lot of fun to plan serious treats for their classes because there are 14 kids in Wee One #1’s class and 6 kids in Wee One #2’s class.… Continue reading Homespun Chocolate Bars, Cake, Cookies and Even a Chicken Salad

Deceptively Delicious Doughnuts and My New Canon Rebel

In this post, I’m participating in Tempt My Tummy Tuesdays, Tuesdays at the Table, Tuesday Night Supper Club, and Hearth ‘n Soul. During the construction of the new site, I was still cooking and baking up a storm in my kitchen so I have about 5 months of recipes to show you! I wont show… Continue reading Deceptively Delicious Doughnuts and My New Canon Rebel

Deceptively Delicious Ranch Dip

In this post, I’m participating in Tempt My Tummy Tuesdays, Tuesdays at the Table, Tuesday Night Supper Club, and Hearth ‘n Soul. The 5th recipe I made from Jessica Seinfeld’s Deceptively Delicious was Ranch Dressing that I served with fish. I’m a huge ranch dressing fan. I love it on salads naturally, but I also… Continue reading Deceptively Delicious Ranch Dip

Deceptively Delicious Spaghetti and Meatballs

This is the fourth recipe in my little kitchen adventure of cooking and baking my way through Jessica Seinfield’s Deceptively Delicious. This recipe was a winner for the kids and myself, but my husband was not at all a fan of the chicken meatballs. He also commented that the pasta sauce tasted like the dipping… Continue reading Deceptively Delicious Spaghetti and Meatballs
