Spicy Chocolate Coconut Clusters

Spicy Chocolate Coconut Clusters; dark chocolate, toasted coconut, sea salt, and a wee bit of fire from foodiewithfamily.com

My baby sister loves me. I know this for a multitude of reasons (like the fact that she tells me so) not the least of which is how she brought me homemade treats when she and her boyfriend visited me near Christmas AND a plate to use for photographing food. She’s good, people. She’s very…

Easy Bacon Wrapped Onion Rings

Easy Bacon Wrapped Onion Rings from foodiewithfamily.com

Easy Bacon Wrapped Onion Rings are my streamlined version of this recipe,  making We just finished up our birthday season around here. Fitting five kids’ birthday feasts in to a span of 86 days that also includes Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s is not for the weak of heart or constitution. Boy-oh-boy do we…

Easy Bleu Cheese Dip or Dressing

Easy Bleu Cheese Dip or Dressing from foodiewithfamily.com

I’m going to leave aside the question of whether or not you’re a fan of bleu cheese, because I figure if you are, you’ll read this through to the end. My question for you today is whether you spell it ‘bleu’ or ‘blue’ cheese. Clearly, I’ve given away MY answer already, and I don’t mind…

Daily Yogurt Routine

Yulu Yogurt #AussieStyle from foodiewithfamily.com

I’ve never been much of a breakfast eater, owing in part to a lifelong distaste for food before 10 am (with all bets being off at 10:01 where no food is safe within reach of my very long arms) and also in part to the fact that I’m just too ever loving bleary eyed and…

Slow-Cooker Black-Eyed Pea Dip with Corn + Bacon

Slow-Cooker Black-Eyed Pea Dip with Corn and bacon from foodiewithfamily.com

You’re probably familiar with the Southern tradition of eating black-eyed peas on New Year’s Day so I’ll spare the cultural lesson. Being married to a man born well south of the Mason Dixon and being the granddaughter of two very southern grandparents, black-eyed peas are part of my family’s heritage and I don’t mean the…

Simple Candied Cranberries + Cranberry Syrup

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

I love Simple Candied Cranberries + Cranberry Syrup both because they’re BEYOOOOTIFUL and ridiculously tasty. Can you even look at these pretty little cranberries that look like they were left out in the snow and think a little “ooooh!” or “aaaah!” or “I’d really like to eat every single one of those!”? 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…
