Dish Details May and June

Hello! It’s been awhile since we’ve done one of these posts. We’ve been busy with then end of school and then busy with all things summer. Here are some of the highlights of things we’ve eaten these last two months. This has been a season of quick meals hardly worth mentioning and celebratory gatherings (thanks,… Read more »

Dish Details 5/10/21

Let’s start this meal recap with something good: Pizza

Dish Details 4/23/21

It’s about time I did another meal round-up. Here are some of the things we’ve eaten recently.

Last Week’s Dish Details – 4/8/21

This week we’ve got the whole gamut: traditional Easter dinner complete with ham, veggie burgers, epic s’mores, and a vegan dinner.

Dish Details – Backpacking Trip to Canyonlands

I am so excited that it’s getting warm enough to camp again! Below are the meals we ate for our most recent backpacking trip – a three day, two night affair in Canyonlands.

Dish Details – End of March

We start the next dish details round-up with a meal you’ve already seen here before. (Full disclosure, I am eating a microwaved chimichanga from the freezer section while I type this. Not all our meals are well-rounded or glamorous.)

Dish Details – 3/18/21

Here’s what we ate this week:

Agua Dulce Tea

Back in February of 2020, we went on a spectacular trip to Costa Rica. I’ve thought about that trip a lot over the last year. We’d initially thought about going over our kids’ spring break in late March, but the cheapskates in us decided to just take the kids out of school and go when… Read more »

Last Week’s Dish Details – 3/11/21

It was a celebration week at our house, which meant a greater than normal amount of desserts, so get excited!

Last Week’s Dish Details – 3/4/21

Another week has flown by. Here are some highlights from what we ate this last week. This was one of those weeks where we ditched our plans more than once for takeout or warming something up from the freezer. Some weeks are like that, but even with the upsets we still made some good things…. Read more »

  • Baking Therapy and Eating Your Feelings

    As I mentioned in my last post, life has been a tad bit crazy this school year. It’s also been highly emotional. Caring for my mother-in-law in her final months of life is probably the hardest thing I’ve done to date. (And it was equally, if not more, difficult for Noel since it was his… Read more »

  • Hi There + Why You Should Use Pastry Flour in your Pie Crust

    Hi there. It’s been awhile. Life threw us some curveballs last fall and it just now feels like we’re clawing our way up for air. In August, Noel broke his arm and I tried my hand at being a middle school English teacher while a teacher was out on leave. We barely survived juggling all… Read more »

  • A few new recipes for our email followers

    Hey email followers. We discovered that a bug with our new recipe plug-in is causing emails to not be sent out for new recipes. Terribly sorry about that. Here’s what you all missed in the mean time: S’mores Cheesecake Raspberry Dark Chocolate Dutch Oven Cobbler Baked Eggs We’ve got a few new recipes in the… Read more »

  • 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 »

  • 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

    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 »

  • 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 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

    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 »
