Mounds Bar Rice Pudding | Coconut, Almond and Dark Chocolate Rice Pudding

How does everyone feel about a week of desserts? I for one feel great. And since I’m the head honcho here (well, the only honcho at the moment) I say we’re having a week of desserts. Here is installment #1! I’m going to be in some very deep trouble for writing this post. I just [Read On]

Fancy-Pants Bacon Jam, Spinach, Egg and Asiago Breakfast Pizza

Updated 8/19/11: Winner announced below the contest rules! Sometimes you just know something is going to be good. Sometimes you have to pat yourself on the back. Today’s lunch was one of those moments. While digging madly through the cupboards to find fast lunch ideas for my already starved* children, I realized I was out [Read On]

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 [Read On]

Bacon Cheddar Bubble Bread

I’ll be honest with you. You’re probably certifiably loony if you make the recipe I’m about to give you during this heatwave. Wacky. Nutso. Your cheese has slid off your cracker. …Like me.

Is it that we all secretly want to be Paul Bunyan, able to uproot pine trees and use them as toothpicks? Do we all [Read On]

Sausage, Egg and Cheese Breakfast Sandwiches

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. [Read On]

Banana Nutmeg Smoothies

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 [Read On]

Nana’s Spanish Style Hot Chocolate (Hot Chocolate Pudding)

My Mom -known around these parts as Nana- does a lot of things very well.  She remembers the name of just about everyone she’s ever met, plays a mean piano and a killer game of chess, makes stupendous lumpia, and always delivers a hug right when you need one (even if you don’t know you [Read On]
