S’Mores Cheesecake

If you follow us on Twitter or Facebook you probably saw all the mouthwatering baking we were doing last week in preparation for National Cheesecake Day! One of the prettiest ones (and equally delicious, this one has both looks and personality) was this s’mores cheesecake. We actually developed the s’mores cheesecake a year ago for our… Read more »

Dark Chocolate Raspberry Cobbler

During our courtship (is that word too archaic for something that only happened a decade ago?), Noel and I spent a summer apart. I was smitten which led me to do sappy things like make care packages with chocolate kisses and cheesy sayings. And because Noel was likewise smitten, he continued dating me even though he… Read more »

Breakfast of Champions

Baked Eggs

We, as with many families, participate in the Mother’s day ritual of breakfast in bed. This year Audrey, as usual, was kind enough to wait patiently for me to complete the meal and deliver it. Upon receiving it, she pretended to enjoy eating a meal where any shift in her posture could send a mug of hot chocolate and greasy… Read more »

Lessons From a Broken Dishwasher - The Dirty Dish Club

Lessons From a Broken Dishwasher

Over the years, a few friends have told me they hated cooking, but didn’t mind doing dishes. We’d joke about making an arrangement where I’d feed their family everyday if, as payment, they’d clean everything up afterward. It’s no secret that dish washing isn’t a beloved chore at our house. This is the Dirty Dish… Read more »

Considering Kid When Meal Planning from dirtydishclub.com

Eating with Kids, Not Like Kids

This post is really just a list of special considerations for those with kids that can be added to my Meal Plan Like a Boss post. As much as I wanted my kids to be extremely cultured when it came to food and despite my best attempts, they are still kids and still finicky about… Read more »

Meal Planning Like a Boss from dirtydishclub.com

Meal Plan Like a Boss

I was recently asked to teach a mini lesson on meal planning for a church activity. Turns out I have a lot more to say than my allotted 5-10 minutes slot so I thought it would make an excellent blog post. Specifically, my topic was meal planning for small children, but since all people eat,… Read more »

Taking Meals to New Moms and the Sick (or Otherwise Afflicted)

It’s been awhile. Let’s just blame the fact that we recently switched hosting companies and all our pictures turned into boxes with question marks and no amount of coding voodoo was able to make them magically reappear. Since this blog is just a hobby it’s taken us awhile to plod through manually updating all the… Read more »

Rainbow Scrambled Eggs from dirtydishclub.com

Rainbow Scrambled Eggs

Our breakfast routine doesn’t have a whole lot of creativity. There just isn’t time for it, at least not on weekdays. Every weekday follows roughly the same pattern. There’s an excessive amount of nagging directed at our children to get out of bed, to go to the bathroom, and then to get dressed. This is… Read more »

Burnt Almond Fudge Ice Cream -  Rich chocolate ice cream with toasted almonds. From dirtydishclub.com

Burnt Almond Fudge Ice Cream

Going to grandma’s house is always a treat, but one of the things I liked best about visiting my grandma as a kid was that she bought high quality ice cream. There was always at least one flavor of Snelgrove’s in her freezer. When I was little my favorite flavor was Canadian Vanilla, but as… Read more »

Fastest Chicken Parm - One of the Dirty Dish Club's favorites from Mark Bittman's How to Cook Everything Fast.

Quick Chicken Parm

Most of you have probably gathered that we like to cook and bake. I honestly could be quite content baking all day long if calories were meaningless and I had both a nanny and a housekeeper. (As well as a big fat bank account to pay said nanny and housekeeper.) But since I live in… Read more »
