Homemade Larabars

larabars-3

I was a little late to the energy bar party.  It was a matter of semantics. Energy bars. That’s really not a very appetizing name. In fact, it sounds like some futuristic food substitute (i.e. Soylent Green. F.Y.I. That’s people, people.) Ew. There’s another little wrinkle. You see, energy bars sound like healthy food for…

Spinach Bacon Cheddar Munchy Cakes

spinach_bacon_cheddar_bites3

My name is Mrs. Bacon Onion Cheddar-Spinach, but you can call me Mrs. Spinach. I loved spinach so much that I married it. Er, not really, but you get the point. Spinach. Sigh. This is a bittersweet story. For years, I didn’t cook spinach as much as I’d like because my kids -most of ‘em…

Cinnamon Swirl Bread

AH- HAHAHAHAHAHAAH! Bwahaha-HA! Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha.  HA-ha! Evil laughs are so hard to put into words, but I really have to give it a shot here. I have three reasons to guffaw as though I’m the baddie who conquered MetroCity. I’ve discovered (or rather I discovered that King Arthur Flour discovered) the secret to a super moist…

Why is it that when you put food on a stick it tastes better? This isn’t just a Minnesota/Midwest thing. This is worldwide. Every country on earth has a favorite food-on-a-stick. Is it that we all secretly want to be Paul Bunyan, able to uproot pine trees and use them as toothpicks? Do we all…

There are a lot of things I’m good at in my kitchen. Making hot breakfasts for seven people (or more if we or the boys have overnight guests) before a whole pot of seriously caffeine fortified tea isn’t one of them. I’m just not enough of a breakfast person to warrant the effort most times….

Warning: This post is going to discuss bodily functions. Sorry, butt there’s no getting around it, and everybody does it. This has been a Foodie With Family P.S.A. When you have little kids, life seems to develop a tendency to revolve around… Hmm. How to say this nicely and in a not-unappetizing way on a…

Corned Beef Hash

cornedbeefhash1

I love Corned Beef Hash. Have you ever played the “What would you eat for your final meal” game? This is on my list. It’s nearly impossible to go too far wrong when you combine corned beef, potatoes, carrots, onions, salt and pepper.  But a sublime Corned Beef Hash is a thing of beauty. The…

Bacon Jam, Avocado and Gorgonzola and Toasted Waffle Sandwiches | My Elvis Sandwich

elvissandwich3

WARNING: This sandwich is dangerous.  It is potentially habit-forming. I apologize for what I’m about to introduce to you. Truly.  Deeply.  From the bottom of my bacon-enlarged bottom.  I’d say my heart, but my bottom’s bigger, especially after discovering these sandwiches.  And that’s a fact. Low-fat?  Heck no. Loaded with whole-grains?  No way. Low in…
