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! All that gooey chocolatey-cookie-pie goodness had my kids cheering almost as loud as they did for California Chrome! For the Preakness, I changed things up a bit [...]

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 [...]
