Pickled Garlic Scapes | Make Ahead Monday

Pickled Garlic Scapes: a 10 minute pickling project | www.foodiewithfamily.com

I’m a pickle fiend. You may or may not know that every summer I put up in the neighborhood of eight dozen jars of garlic dill pickles.

Garlic Bagel Chips | Make Ahead Mondays

Garlic Bagel Chips | www.foodiewithfamily.com

Garlic Bagel Chips rock my Casbah. I’m pretty sure just about everyone out there has tried them at one time or another, but it should come as no surprise that the homemade variety -fresh and crisp and hot- from your own oven is THAT much better.

Piña Colada Smoothies | www.foodiewithfamily.com

  Piña Colada Smoothies are my new go-to smoothie. They’re kind of fabulous. You know how I’ve told you I was a picky eater when I was a kid? I was a total texture-phobe and I was dead picky about flavour combinations. My mom now says, “Hey, we just didn’t know you were gourmet.” My…

Reuben Egg Rolls and Thousand Island Dipping Sauce

Reuben Egg Rolls from Foodie with Family

  A couple of months ago, my little sister sent me a hilarious exchange from NPR’s Sandwich Monday about Reuben Egg Rolls. I’m pretty sure I haven’t mentioned it here before, but I am straight up obsessed with Reuben sandwiches. As in perilously close to having named one of my children Reuben obsessed. My husband…

Sweet and Salty No-Bake Popcorn Cookies | The Croods

Salty and Sweet No Bake Popcorn Cookies from Foodie with Family

I love movies of all kinds: comedy, drama, action, adventure, COLIN FIRTH (because he gets his own category), HUGH JACKMAN (because he does, too), classics, musicals, suspense, animation (both silly and serious)… I love all of them. I can converse entirely in movie quotes and adaptations thereof when in the company of another movie lover….
