Dark Chocolate Crêpes with Blueberry Cream

Dark Chocolate Crêpes with Blueberry Cream for #SundaySupper #CookforJulia

In honor of Julia Child’s 100th birthday this August 15th, my #SundaySupper group is celebrating with PBS Food to honor this cooking legend with her amazing recipes. I have always been intimidated by French cooking until I made my first Beef Bourguignon. I quickly realized that this amazing meal was basically a beef stew. It […]

Slow-Cooker Chicken Fricassée

Raise your hand if you struggle to get a delicious homemade dinner that your entire family will like during the week? It’s okay, my hand is raised. People assume that if you are a food blogger, this comes naturally to us. It doesn’t. It’s not easy juggling the extra-curricular activities of three kids, volunttering at […]

Resolutions with Pears and Camembert

This is not your normal new year’s resolutions post, especially after all the warm-fuzzy feelings and good-tidings-to-man just a short week ago. I have found myself at the end of 2011, feeling worn out. It’s not just because of the usual holiday parties, shopping and gift giving and cooking. It’s more than just being a […]

Lemon Blueberry Clafoutis by FamilySpice.com

Lemon Blueberry Clafoutis

A funny conversation occurred yesterday afternoon. My hubby had his monthly scout leader meeting at our house. I don’t attend as I am an unofficial volunteer (being married to the cubmaster), so I hover in the kitchen and listen. If I sit down, then I get sucked into the entire 2-hour meeting and I’ll probably […]

Oxtail Bourguignonne

How do you start your week with a simple roast chicken and end it with Oxtail Bourguignonne? I don’t know. That’s how I fly in my house! I realized I was getting burned out in the kitchen and I needed to jump start myself out of my rut. I found this recipe in my February […]

Munchies To Ring In The New Year

Munchies To Ring In The New Year

Well, we survived Christmas this year. I didn’t think we would, with all the house projects going on. Although we had the tree up and some decorations, it didn’t quite feel like Christmas. We had tons of rain in San Diego and hubby was busy fixing up my kitchen and never hung up any lights […]

Grocery Deals and Recipes: Oct. 7 – Oct. 13

Neither rain, a small cold, or my 4-year old’s birthday party can keep me away from delivering this week’s grocery deals. Of course, they all can make me a little late, and for that, I apologize… again. Life with three small kids can certainly throw hurdles your way, and my family is no different! This […]

Grocery Deals and Recipes: Sep. 30 – Oct. 6

As I am looking over this week’s grocery deals, I must say, I am not that excited. Nothing really jumps out and makes me run to the store to stock up and save. Granted, Albertson’s has raspberries for 99¢/ea Thursday-Sunday. I admit to be excited about THAT! Ralphs/Kroger has Gala and Red Delicious apples for […]

French Country Chicken With Herbs & Honey

French Country Chicken With Herbs & Honey

What to do on a Friday night? You would think a blogger who writes about how easy it is to make home-cooked meals for your family would enjoy cooking all the time. But, alas, it is not so. It’s not easy cooking with my three little distractions around. And on Fridays, I want to kick […]
