Fish Eye Sweet and Salty Snack Mix

Fish Eyes Sweet and Salty Snack Mix #Snacks foodiewithfamily.com

We’re big fans of snack mixes around here. The boys -when they go to the grocery store with me- will point out various things and proclaim them to be ‘good snack mix material’. We don’t buy them because snack mixes at the store are almost invariably horrendously over priced for wee little bags or jars…

Homemade Garlicky Refried Beans

Garlicky Refried Beans from scratch #HealthyFoods #Recipe

Refried beans are a staple food at our house. I can’t imagine trying to feed five boys without refried beans, to be honest. One person or another is always ‘STARVING!’ and ‘ABOUT TO DIE IF I DON’T EAT!’ or ‘HAS A STOMACH THAT IS A GIANT VOID!’.  You thought drama was reserved for daughters? Oh,…

Pico de Gallo

Perfet Pico de gallo #Mexicanfood #condiment #fresh

Thor (our mean old rooster) died of natural causes last weekend. Natural causes is not -shockingly- a euphemism for me removing his head. While he was a royal pain and menaced everyone for much of his life, it was sad to see him displaced and picked on by his sons. Animals are mean. I can’t…

It is sometimes preceded by an admiring stare, groan, or “whoaaaaaaa” and is often accompanied by an affectionate noogie or smack on the back. We are a family…

White Spinach French Bread Pizzas

White Spinach French Bread Pizza #ComfortFood #Whitepizza foodiewithfamily.com

When my husband goes on business trips, I have an indecent and scandalous fixation on frozen pizzas. My husband likes pizza a lot, but he gets his fill relatively quickly, unlike me. My love for pizza, however, knows no breaking point or season. There is not a point where my thought is, “Meh. I’m bored…
