Bunny Bread

Bunny Bread for your Easter or Spring party buffets

Let us observe the Easter Bunny in his natural habitat… See how relaxed he is in the vegetable patch? The serene  -if vacant- look on his face?  He is surrounded by his favored nourishment; cucumbers, peas, carrots and his own entrails. Wait. His own entrails? How can this be? The Easter Bunny’s tummy has been…

Everything Soft Pretzels


Did you know February is National Snack Food Month? Its true.  And did you know that I am the (self-proclaimed) Queen of Snacks? It is in veritas.* *Wanton use of Latin proves either my royalty or the fact that I’m a homeschooling mom. I think this calls for a serious application of my snack food…

Applesauce Pouches {Homemade GoGo Squeez or Fruit Crushers}

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.

English Muffin Bread Pizzas

I’m still having trouble mentally adjusting to the fact that I’m a grown up, let alone that  I have an honest-to-goodness teenager…

Green Orange Julius Smoothie


This has been one seriously weird weather winter. From a green, warm Christmas to a rainy, snow-free February, I’ve been sitting around tapping my foot waiting for the weather to turn frightful. Tap tap tap. Nuttin’. While my husband and sons have been running around outside singing rapturously about the weather and twirling with their…

Southwestern Egg Rolls | Make Ahead Mondays


My love of all foods Southwestern is deep and abiding. From tacos to burritos (breakfast and otherwise), quesadillas, nachos (grande or humble), tortilla soup and everything in between, I can’t resist. Well, maybe I can resist, but I’ve honestly never tried because I don’t want to give up any opportunity for any of those heavenly…

Pesto Pinwheel Rolls | Arugula and Walnut Pesto


There isn’t anything that is necessary to say about these rolls other than a resounding “WOW!” but not being a woman of few words, I’m going to say a bunch anyway. Once again, I break out what is now pretty firmly cemented as my best-loved bread dough of all time. But I should backtrack a…
