Egg Nests

We have a tradition of sorts, around these parts.  That is: come weekend mornings, we ditch our boring weekday breakfast routine of oatmeal or yogurt and indulge in something far more caloric.  And tasty, too.  This morning, we woke to found that someone had finished off the milk with chocolate chip cookies last night, so… Continue reading Egg Nests

Lemon Cranberry Bundt Cake

Every year I make Jeff a different treat for his birthday.  This year, it was a Bundt cake.  A lemon-cranberry Bundt cake to be precise.  And a very well received one at that.  This was one of the rare treats that pleased every palate in the house.  The cake itself is very fresh and tart,… Continue reading Lemon Cranberry Bundt Cake

Caramel Apple Cocktail

What’s that you say?  Tacos are boring.  ¡NO! Tu es loco en la cabeza. Our tacos are anything… Continue reading Tacos Our Way

Has it really been six days since I last posted?  Oy.  Time sure flies when you’re not having fun. If you read the post below this one, you may have surmised that I’ve got my hands a bit full with kidlet issues.  If so, you’d have surmised correctly.  Lest I forget that my household is… Continue reading Spicy Pot Pie

Taco-fied Turkey Burgers

A couple of weeks ago, during our weekly trip to Whole Foods, Jeff spotted a taco’d up version of a hamburger on the cover of a foodie magazine.  In typical carnivorous fashion, he proceeded to drool over it before he remembered that, currently, ours isn’t so much a red-meat eating household.  {Read: I’m not a… Continue reading Taco-fied Turkey Burgers
