Bruschetta and pizza

We wrapped up the Vegan Month of Food around here with two days of very yummy food. Last week I was pretty bad about doing any cooking since my husband was gone, so I tried to make up for it this weekend and early this week.  A simple linguine with tomato sauce and a small …

Homefried Potatoes

I haven’t been Mofo’ing this week since my husband has been out of town.When he is gone, and I am left with the kids and dogs all by myself, I tend to just scratch by. We’ve eaten a lot of cereal and peanut butter sandwiches this week as a result. I did manage to cook …

We love sushi night around here. We have cut back the frequency to help keep our budget under control, but doing it less often makes it more of a special treat. I’ve posted previously how I prepare our rolls. Our most recent nigth, I had to use “party” nori sheets – essentially just half sheets …

Blueberry Lime Jam

We recently picked up a ton of organic blueberries through a local produce distributor. We take advantage of discount organic buys relatively frequently. I still have a long overdue post on one of the 40 pound banana buys we took advantage of – hopefully I can get caught up! Anyway, even though the kids were loving all …
