  • Apple Vanilla Muffins

    Last Thursday, before our trip to Granby, I finally got to do some baking in the new kitchen. Baking at our temporary digs was incredibly infrequent and I’d missed it! It was nice to get in a well-functioning kitchen and whip these up for our trip. As a bonus, they are GOOD. The original recipe […]

  • Avocado Chicken Burritos

    The whole family is in agreement – it feels so so good to be back in the routine of cooking at home! The hours we spent in the car, going back and forth between our permanent neighborhood and our temporary neighborhood nearly every day, really took it out of us and home cooking was one […]

  • Crockpot Apples

    It’s FALL! In addition to the fall colors and cool running weather, we have of course been chowing down on our share of “fall” foods. Pumpkin pasta, butternut squash, pumpkin pancakes, pumpkin oatmeal, pork ragu, tea and plenty of apples. With soups, in salads, for snacks. And on Sunday, we came home from Sunflower Market […]

  • Yogurt Cake

    I think I might’ve mentioned that a couple of weeks ago, I read a book called Bringing Up Bebe, a comparison of French and American parenting. I really liked the book and enjoyed reading it and I was definitely intrigued by a passage in the book where a French woman was letting her 3 year […]

  • Breakfast Burritos for the Freezer

    Daddy got to pick out breakfasts this week and (surprise, surprise) he chose breakfast burritos. Technically, I’ve already posted a recipe for breakfast burritos, but we’ve changed things up a bit since we first started making these bad boys, so here’s what we do now. Breakfast Burritos 18 flour tortillas (we buy Market Pantry low-carb) […]
