So. Rain. Lots of it. And then some more rain. Add a few floods. And some more rain. A bunch more rain. Don’t forget a significant additional amount of rain. …This has been our weather pattern for the past three weeks.  Add colder than normal temperatures (with the exception of one glorious, magical, sunny, sixty-degree…

Bacon and Eggs Candy

Eggsandbaconcandy2

I love food with a sense of humour. Something silly that makes you giggle and screams, “EAT ME!” * *Well, unless something is actually screaming “eat me” which would be more than just a little disconcerting. It just doesn’t get much cuter than these little “Bacon and Eggs” candies that I saw years ago in…

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….

From a smarty-pants, web-savvy point of view, I ‘m doing this strangely. I should be posting this later this week so you can think of it for Friday (say for instance, if you’re observing Lent) and I should not mention that I know that… But I was lucky enough to see some pretty spectacular thunderstorms…

Foodie With Family 2.0

Today, Foodie With Family got a little bit more streamlined when we dropped the “/blog” at the end of our web address. The truth is, I was probably the only person bothered by it. I was certain that it stuck out… much like thinking everyone is staring at a pimple on the end of your…

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.
