It was Friday night and I felt guilty. Danny and I were leaving the kids for the third night in a row and they weren’t complaining. But I felt awful. I threw together a meal that I didn’t think much of (there was absolutely no nutritional value; pour on more guilt). As soon as I [...]

It is time for lunch. You want to eat healthy. You don’t have a lot of time. Once again, I am here for you. It turns out that our Costco intermittently sells kale. I’m in heaven when they have it. When they don’t, I leave a comment card. Make sure you have [...]

On February 25, 2013 By admin

Last Sunday My sister made an amazing salad. Long story short, it included pears, blue cheese, candied pecans, and a slew of other treats. The salad reminded me of my own Christmas salad creation. Enjoy this Snow family classic.

Happy Halloween and let the cider drinking begin! Seriously, I may hand this out next week instead of candy. As my daughter Annabelle says, I am totally not kidding.
