Applesauce Pouches {Homemade GoGo Squeez or Fruit Crushers} from www.foodiewithfamily.com

Does anyone else have kids who fell head-over-heels for those little GoGo SqueeZ Applesauce on the Go or Fruit Crusher pouches? I know it’s  not necessarily a bad thing, given that they’re full of healthy applesauce. The trouble is that they’re REALLY STINKIN’ EXPENSIVE even when purchased in bulk through Amazon. And I have five…

Homemade Blueberry Syrup for pancakes, waffles, French toast, and SODA! | www.foodiewithfamily.com

I just turned almost-forty. I believe I’ll refer to my entire year that way, because this is my last year before that big four-oh. I think the almost-forty was probably harder than the actual-forty will be to face. The decade birthdays seem like a celebration, where the ones that immediately precede somehow seem like a…

While working my way through the sixty pounds of cherries I had ordered from the Amish store, I got to the point where I was making jam. On a whim, I minced and tossed a little fresh habanero pepper into my regular cherry lime jam. Whoa. It was so good I made everyone in the…

Bacon. Horseradish. Mustard. Is there anyone else out there other than me for whom this is a mega drool-inducing trifecta of tastiness?  Any one of those things on its own and I would be a very happy girl. And you know what? I can’t claim credit for the idea. This bit of brilliance is straight…

Roasted Garlic Whipped Feta | www.foodiewithfamily.com

Can we have a heart to heart for a moment? I love foods that stink: garlic, feta cheese, olives, braunschweiger, pungent and runny French cheese, onions, and much, much more. And what’s more, I have loved this stanky stuff for as long as I can remember. Once -when I was a teenager- my mom stopped…
