For a long time it has seemed that as my kids got older, the after-school juggling became more complicated. Older kids meant more advanced sports and activities with multiple practices and games per week taking place in further and further away locations. But this year… something completely unexpected has happened to my schedule…. it became [...]

My family loves Korean BBQ, and we even have a favorite restaurant that we love to visit for special occasions called Korean Garden (used to be known as Kang Suh). The staff there loves to see our big family and makes such a fuss over every one of us- asking all kinds of questions about [...]

Last week my son Alex “celebrated” his 1/2 birthday (he’s 8 1/2!) by requesting that I make brownie sundaes with hot fudge save for dessert. “No problem” I thought, as I mixed up a double batch of our favorite Ghiradelli brownie mix and popped them into the oven.

A few weeks ago I made a Kentucky Derby Pie for my family to enjoy after watching the Kentucky Derby horse race- and it was a huge hit!

At our house we serve chicken for dinner at least once, but usually twice a week. I like that my kids get a good healthy dose of protein with dinner and that I can stretch my grocery budget by stocking up on chicken breasts when they are on sale for 40% off! Double win! My [...]

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Pompeian. I make my “easy weeknight pasta dinner” practically every week (now that we are in the middle of spring sports season), and it is starting to get a little “blah”. The kids aren’t complaining…. but I am bored with it- and wanted to [...]
