Simple Candied Cranberries + Cranberry Syrup

Simple Candied Cranberries + Cranberry Syrup; a holiday two-fer from foodiewithfamily.com

Can you view…

Candy Cane Silk Steamers

Holiday Candy Cane Silk Steamer made with Silk Cashewmilk from foodiewithfamily.com #SilkCashew

I am straight up, solid obsessed with nut milks. The nut milk obsession comes from a weird place. I don’t drink cow’s milk. I cook with it, my kids love it, I just plain can’t drink it. It makes me ill. I love creamy things, though, and so the wide availability of alternatives to dairy…

Garlic Mushroom Stroganoff

Creamy, intense Garlic Mushroom Stroganoff is a fast, fabulous winter meal from foodiewithfamily.com

High on the list of things that I ‘hated’ to eat as a child -which was an extensive list because OHMYWORD I was picky!- were mushrooms. I can’t say I tried them with any frequency, but I mistrusted them. It’s quite possibly insane to have a lack of trust in a food, but there was…

Cashew Maple Caramel Corn

Cashew Maple Caramel Corn made with or without bourbon from foodiewithfamily.com

I think the key to having a successful food blog is having many friends who like to eat. I can tell when my friends are on a diet because they avoid my company in public. They know as likely as not, I’m going to reach into my bag and pull out some sort of food…

Mega Vanilla Syrup and Homemade Cream Soda from foodiewithfamily.com

I love fizzy drinks madly. Sometimes it’s the difference between a good mood and a bad mood. It’s hard to be cranky when you have a bubbly beverage in hand!

Crawling to the finish line in NaBloPoMo (National Blog Post Month, or NaBlahBlahBlah as I prefer to call it), I’m going to share a list of completely random things I love in the form of a Gift Guide for Geek Girls (ahem, me.) Geek Girl Gift #1 I’m 100% fixated on these t-shirts from Lithographs….

Homemade Classic Eggnog

Homemade Classic Eggnog from foodiewithfamily.com

Christmas just isn’t Christmas without eggnog. And eggnog just isn’t eggnog unless it’s Homemade Classic Eggnog.  It’s just truth, friends. It ABSOLUTELY takes more time than buying a quart of the stuff at the store, but the payoff is so enormous that you’ll never question it when once you’ve made your own. Redolent with freshly…
