Ever think you yourself “My life is just not busy enough?” No? Well, I’m all about that hustle, to a fault. Like, I feel guilty each moment I’m not doing something to further my career, blog presence or help my family. Perhaps it’s a mom thing. Maybe I’m just a born entrepreneur? In any case, on top of my full-time job, full-time blog and full-time wife/mother gigs, I’ve become a LuLaRoe Retailer.
When I asked if I could make a cake for my friend Heather’s baby shower, I was told that the theme was “Thank Heaven for Little Girls” and the colors were white gray and gold. That was it. I could have made anything. White cake, carrot cake, gingerbread, whatever. I guess because I wasn’t given more direction, I let my imagination do the deciding. You can say I got a little carried away when I made this Chocolate & the Kitchen Sink Cake, but I have no regrets.
My Mediterranean Cheesy Penne has everything, the creaminess of a macaroni and cheese filled with vegetables and a unique flavor your babysitter will love. Plus, it’s a great way to sneak vegetables all in one pan! This dish keeps really well, and can be made ahead of time, then reheated.
When families with young kids consider getting a dog, they often prefer an energetic puppy. I get it. Your kids like to play, and you want a companion for them who also likes to play. There’s also the idea that you can mold the puppy into being the dog you want it to be. Well, I’m here to make the case that the best dogs for young families are older dogs.
You’ve heard it said that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and it’s the truth. The more nutrients you can pack in the early hours, the better off you’ll be throughout the day. For months now, my husband has been making me chia pudding for breakfast, and it is a life-saver.
Mmm, I love cheese, but you already know this. I just learned this week that Chanukah is a traditionally a dairy holiday, so what could be more perfect than these delicately light appetizers? French Cheese Puffs are great for both Chanukah and New Year’s Eve!
Right, so champagne donuts. I basically adapted my Guinness donuts recipe to make these festive morsels. I decided to switch it up from the other sufganiyot posts I’ve been writing, and make a more traditional donut and donut holes. After all, do champagne donuts really need filling? No, I didn’t think so.
There are so many great things to make with cheddar cheese, but this cheese is like a kiss to the tastebuds, a full-on *muah*. Should I shred it and smother something with it? Nah. This cheese can stand on its own. Let’s just deep fry it instead. Deep Fried Cheddar Cheese is going to make you sing “Hallelujah!” Believe me. It’s going to be the best Hallelujah you’ve ever sung. You’re going to sing it so well, you’ll get tired of being the best at singing “Hallelujah.”
