Totchos Supreme {tater tots, chorizo, Cheddar, green onions, bell peppers, smoked paprika chipotle sauce, and sour cream} #Superbowl #Snacks #ComfortFood

In a house with this many guys, surely I can be forgiven for thinking of dishes that are received with much acclaim as “Dude Food”. Over my seventeen years as a wife and sixteen years as a mom of boys, I’ve noticed a few commonalities in my dudes’ Dude Food. There’s going to be something…

Mediterranean Tuna and White Bean Salad

Fresh, light marinated white bean and tuna salad

January is a weird month for me. I start it strong carried on a wave of warm fuzzies from Christmas and New Years, and all of my boys’ birthdays, then exit the month sleepy and befuddled by the constant palette of whites and greys outside the window with the occasional glimpse of brown.

One of the things I love best about the holiday season is unexpected guests at meal time. No, really. I genuinely mean that with zero sarcasm at all. Why do I love something that so many dread? I love the excitement, the conviviality, the boisterous fun, and the challenge of stretching a meal that was…

Baked Ricotta {Fast and Fabulous Appetizer}

Baked Ricotta Cheese at www.foodiewithfamily.com

When I was a little girl, I used to equate finger foods and appetizers with a fanciness I hoped to attain one day. My pinky and nose were distinctly raised in the air when I ate them and I felt like a princess. Where I got that, I have NO idea, but kids seldom make…
