Mack Daddy of Chaos

*disclaimer* The following comments may or may not pertain to me. Thanksgiving. You can’t avoid it. It’s coming. In two days. And whether you love it or hate it, whether it brings together people you love or people you loathe, there’s one thing that rings true for all. It could possibly be the culmination of […]

Grow Up

    I just read a really stupid article that touched a nerve. The topic: At what age should kids stop trick-or-treating? The comments were actually more poignant than the article itself. Some parents recommended age twelve, the confirmation year. The year that kids are ‘supposed’ to transition into mini-adults. Others suggested the ritual cease […]

Floundering on Dinner…Panko Encusted Flounder

Lately I’ve been floundering on my meals. Just can’t seem to make the right turkey chili in the crock pot. Tossing salads (literally) because I’m not satisfied with the outcome. Botching brownies. Making mediocre meatballs. I need some fresh ideas. And once again it’s 5:53 pm and I’m left with my daily dilemma: what to […]

This salad is delicious and literally took five minutes to make.

Don’t Worry Mamma. Tonight, I’m Cleaning Out My Closet…Fall Salads

It took me about a week to figure out this was a zucchini. Whoops. I really should have noticed that back in July. But life just gets so busy, you know? Plus, what if it had been a science experiment for one of my daughter’s classes? I’d just feel terrible had I thrown it away. […]

Spring Chicken

Green may be the new black, small the new big, and pale the new tan, but I’m still trying to figure out who said 30 is the new 40. Because if given the choice, I’d take green, small and pale, but I’d also take 30. Wouldn’t you? I’d just want the knowledge of the years […]

Say Hello (and then goodbye!) to Fall…Pea Shoots, Apples and Cheese Salad

Ohh. Feels like fall! So, quick! Before it regresses back to 95 degrees in the shade, run, don’t walk to the nearest grocery store and stock up on pumpkins, bales of hay, cranberries, cinnamon sticks, and anything else that will get you feeling crispy!! Oh how I love, love, love fall! But alas, I know […]

Why Parents Should Play More Video Games…Greek Pasta Salad

Every year I say I won’t do it. But then I do it anyway. Overschedule my kids. Are you the same? It all starts like this: A simple game of Tetris. My life. Probably your life, too. Just as you’re tossing your last dive stick into the pool and squeezing the chlorine out of your […]

Poached Egg Breakfast

Poach This…Poached Eggs with Spinach and Mushrooms

To know me is to know that I’ll pretty much do anything for you. Need a kid picked up or dropped off when you’re in a bind? Just ask. Don’t have a place to go for the holidays? Door’s open and food’s a plenty. Having a mommy meltdown? Let’s go for a drink. But poach […]

My Apologies for Yesterday’s Post…Bruchetta

It was just so wrong of me to leave that last post up for so long. The ‘incident’ with the Windex and the shoes really threw me for a loop . My apologies. There is no place for bugs in a food blog. So it won’t happen again. But I don’t have much to say […]

I Wont Offend You by Posting a Picture…or a Recipe

So here’s one that’ll kill any dinnertime mood. COCKROACH. BIG.  FAT. GET THE HELL OUT OF MY #*$***S$%@ HO– USE COCKROACH. I HATE HATE HATE these things. They are rude. They are intrusive. They are freaking scary looking. And they have NO PLACE IN MY KITCHEN let alone my life. So what do I do? […]

Chaos In the Clouds

The airlines have it all wrong. They should pay me to fly. I think I’ll write a letter. After all, I check myself in, I carry my own bags, I bring my own snacks and I even clean the plane. Yeah, I’ve become one of those OCD people who brings Clorox wipes and scrubs the […]

Kabobs

Best. Marinade. Ever.

It’s Monday. Which means there’s no time to do anything. So I’ll cut right to the chase. Marinate that chicken that’s still sitting in your fridge in this stuff and make kabobs. You’ll be everybody’s best friend. No joke. Kick Ass Kabobs *I approximated this at about 1/2 cup for everything liquid…give or take a […]
