Baking Bread in one hour and a little somethin’ extra!

I loooooove homemade bread. You do too, don't you? You're smelling it right now aren't you? About a year ago I was buying bread at the grocery store. This adorable old man came up to me and said, "Whoa! Does your family eat that much bread?" I looked down at my six (gulp!) loaves of bread for the week and…

The Month of Meal Plans

If there is one thing I hate more than anything about being an At Home Mom, and that is cooking. I know, I'm the complete opposite of my Sister when it comes to food, it's ok though because she's my opposite when it comes to technology.

Three Ingredients Away

Meal Plans Made Easy

Meal planning is probably one of the least fun tasks for me.  I used to sit in a pile of cookbooks with a calendar in on one side, a shopping list on the other, and so the search begins.  In this digital age, that should definitely NOT be the case.  Now it really isn't thanks to kitchenmonki.com. The great thing…

Really Good Food

It has been a while since I've posted on a Thursday for my food day, but my husband and I have made some life decisons about the food we eat, and we seriously have not felt better!  I read a book my sister the Super Healthy Kids mom let me borrow.  The book is very good, but has a bit…

Going Out To Eat

I will admit that since I got pregnant, my meal planning (among MANY other of my organization habits) has pretty much flown out the window.  During my first trimester I could barely look at a piece of chicken.  This has led to lots and lots of restaurants and fast food.  If I could finally find something that didn't send me…
