Nut Butter Granola Bars

I cannot say enough good things about the cookbook The Family Cooks. If there's one cookbook to own, this is what I recommend, especially if you don't necessarily consider yourself a whiz in the kitchen. It's not too basic (I don't need directions to roast basic vegetables, vegetable by vegetable), it doesn't expect me to make [...]

Veggie Monster Muffins

As Kennedy starts eating more and more table food (who am I kidding...she never ate baby food), its' a real struggle to get vegetables into her. All of our go-to snacks seem to be carb-based; crackers, puffs, MumMums, toast. Its pretty tough to hand a ten-month-old a leaf of lettuce, and she doesn’t seem to [...]

We buy full fat or 2% plain greek yogurt. Plain works great as a substitute for sour cream, and it can easily [...]

Overnight Oats with Orange and Pomegranate Juices

I'm always on the lookout for new ideas for make-ahead breakfasts to add to my lineup of baked oatmeal and freezer egg-based recipes. With warmer weather we're looking for a replacement for our homemade frozen breakfast burritos - something cold but with the same satisfaction factor. Overnight oats first came to mind. Perhaps you've heard [...]

bran muffins

Three-Week Muffin Mix

This bran muffin recipe is one of my favorite breakfast treats, and it's always a hit with my nieces (ages 9 & 10), too.  My favorite thing about this recipe, though, is that you can make the mix and leave it in the refrigerator for several weeks.  The recipe actually says the mix will be [...]
