You know those things? Those things that if you change one thing, bad things will happen? Pizza is NOT one of those things. Not even close. Pizza is one of those gloriously erasable and re-writable canvases that can take on any personality at any time as long as the flavours you pile on top of…

Heath Bar Crunch Chex Mix at www.foodiewithfamily.com

Chex mix is something I only allow myself to make between the day after Thanksgiving and the end of January. I can’t handle myself around it and eat myself to the point where I feel like a turtle stuck on its back. A happy turtle, but a little less capable of moving under my own…

My father is obsessed -OBSESSED, I TELL YOU- with peanut butter. When we chat on the phone before visits, I ask what he’d like to eat while he’s chez us. His response is almost infallibly “Peanut butter ____” because honestly, as long as the peanut butter part is there, my dad is a happy man….
