What’s up with all the Mansplaining, fellas?

This morning I cooked omelets in my waffle maker, something I’ve done many times successfully in the past. It makes a great finger food for the babies, and the whole family enjoys them. After realizing how many different things I could cook in a waffle maker, I decided I wanted a larger one with removable […]

Smart Ways to Save Money on Amazon

Smart Ways to Save Money on Amazon

I’ve always been a bargain hunter; I admit to getting a little high when I find a great deal. But since I decided to stay at home with my kids while they’re little, it’s become a matter of necessity to budget. Not only have I managed to cut our grocery bill by more than 50% […]

Summertime Kind of Carefree

Summertime Kind of Carefree

When we announced that we were having twins, some people who love me, and who I love, expressed some concern for how I might handle the chaos. Those who know me well know that I like things to be predictable and orderly. They’re not wrong about that. But it hurt my feelings that they doubted […]

A Whole Hand

A Whole Hand

When did this happen? I mean, obviously I know when it happened. About 2 months ago, actually. But I’m just now looking through photos and came across this. My baby is five. Five. He’s a whole hand, y’all. That’s a big deal around here. He hasn’t been a baby, or even a toddler, for quite […]

Spaghetti Baby Bites

This was an absolute favorite with my oldest, and it remains a favorite with my twins. I don’t know what it is about tomato sauce, but kids will eat anything when it’s covered in it! Here’s how I do it, but you can add any vegetables you want. Cook 1 pound of ground beef in […]

Summer is almost here! I’m looking forward to days spent by the pool, leisurely evenings without the rush of bedtime, lazy mornings without the fight to get ready for school…. I could do without the hot humidity of Alabama summer days, but I do look forward to the slowness that summer brings with it. This […]

Cauliflower “Potato” Cakes and Pineapple Sweet Potato Cakes

Cauliflower “Potato” Cakes and Pineapple Sweet Potato Cakes

I’ve recently had a change of heart. Up until just a few months ago, I hated cauliflower. It looks too much like broccoli for my taste, so for years I’ve despised it based on appearance alone. But I had no idea what you could do with cauliflower in disguise! My first attempt at disguising cauliflower […]

Homemade Stock–Delicious and a Money Saver!

The next time you go to throw out your meat bones or vegetable scraps, go ahead and slap yourself. Then throw them in a gallon freezer bag and save them! When the bag is full, dump it into a slow cooker and cook it all night on low. Or, bring it to a boil in […]

Apple-Carrot Muffins

Apple-Carrot Muffins

These muffins are healthy and delicious! They’re baby-approved, little kid-approved, and I kinda love them myself. This is a great recipe for baby led weaning, finger foods, breakfast, toddler snacks, or after-school snacks. And bonus, they thaw nicely if you want to freeze some.
