Cool, chocolatey, Peppermint Patty Milkshake from foodiewithfamily.com

Here’s the deal. I’m turning 40 this week. I don’t see this as a thing to hide. I think every single day I’m alive is empirical evidence that I’m okay at this being alive thing and is a reason to brag. I’m here! And to celebrate this week, I’m posting some of my favourite foods…

Guava and Cream Cheese Hand Pies from foodiewithfamily #JCPAmbassador #Spon #BlogHer

While attending BlogHer Food in Miami this past May, I attended a workshop taught by my gal, Meseidy of The Noshery, and Carla of The Cuban Brit. The workshop was on cooking traditional Puerto Rican and Cuban foods or putting spins on those cuisines. I walked away from the workshop very full indeed (SAMPLES!!), and…

Slow-Cooker Five Spice Pork Roast

Slow-Cooker Five Spice Pork Roast with Sweet Potatoes foodiewithfamily.com

Slow-cookers have acquired a bum rap for turning out bland, homogenous, texturally lacking food. Why-oh-why do people have this misconception? I want to whisper a little theory because it’s not a very popular one… I think it’s because people thing you can dump any old thing in there along with a can or two of…

Coconut Cream Lime Pops

Just 5 ingredients and a blender are all you need to make these creamy Coconut Cream Lime Pops from foodiewithfamily.com

It’s hot out; ninety degrees in the shade hot is what it is with about eighty percent relative humidity. My boys -who aren’t usually given to running around shirtless- haven’t had a shirt on in days.

Cool Ranch Dorito Cheese Curds

You like Cool Ranch Doritos? Like cheese curds? How about Cool Ranch Doritos Cheese Curds on foodiewithfamily.com. All natural! No MSG!

I have a dear friend who told me she has never tasted cheese curds. I am not going to lie; I gasped. Perhaps it’s living where I live -in the heart of New York dairy country- that makes cheese curds so ubiquitous. Even the rinky dink grocery store in our town (“What’s a vegetable?” they…

Mojito Icees {High Octane and Mocktail Versions} from foodiewithfamily.com

“Sheesh, it’s hot.” That Warner Bros. line gets so much play around here this time of year. Instead of melting into a puddle like the Abominable Snowman, how about whipping up these Mojito Icees in either the adult-high octane form (with rum) or the Mocktail (alcohol-free) version? This recipe, another brainchild of my husband, The…

Rich Mocha Pudding Cups {Simple & From Scratch}

Mocha Pudding Cups. Easy & From Scratch! foodiewithfamily.com

Simply stated, there is not one dessert on Earth I’d rather have on a regular basis than pudding; not even my beloved ice cream! I’ve loved pudding as long as I can remember, and I can’t think of a variety of pudding I dislike. All the puddings are well loved in my book, but mocha…
