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

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: 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

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 […]
