Almond Stuffed Campfire Peaches

Noel mentioned in his last post that in an effort to #makepantsfitagain, we did a bit of a sugar detox. (Post on that coming soon to your favorite food blog.) Going forward we aren’t banning sugar, but we’re definitely cutting back significantly. Over Memorial Day weekend, we took our kids on a mini backpacking trip. While… Read more »

Garlic and Ginger Crispy Tofu Stir Fry

All of this eating our feelings is starting to catch up to me. The past few weeks we have embarked on an effort we’re calling #makepantsfitagain to improve our general health. It includes more regular exercise, eating much less sugar and more vegetables. Don’t worry, we’re not going Whole 30 on you or anything, but… 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 »

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 »

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

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 »

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 »

High Altitude Lemon Raspberry Cupcakes

I’ve been sitting on this recipe for a couple of months now, which is a shame because this recipe is important. It was the recipe that sealed my street cred with the preschool staff.

Skillet Hobo Dinner

Back when Noel and I first met, long before The Dirty Dish Club was even a twinkle in our eyes, we spent a romantic night in making tinfoil dinners. We chopped up the veggies, nestled them against patties, and wrapped them snuggly in foil. Our cooking prowess was still in its infancy and our kitchen tools… Read more »

Chicken Quinoa Soup

Usually this time of year I’d be brainstorming ways to minimize the use of my stove and oven in my cooking routine, but this last month has been a time of almost constant rain and cool temperatures. While others were proclaiming Memorial Day the beginning of barbecue season, I was simmering a heartwarming soup. This… Read more »
