Zemanta Related Posts Thumbnail

Pumpkin carving is a messy job. It's fun, but messy. The carved pumpkin never seems to last very long either. It either starts to turn green and hairy or it is eaten by critters. Jenny came up with a wonderful idea! Carve faux pumpkins! Buy a faux pumpkin and have your kids draw their design with an orange sharpie. Take a knife or pumpkin carving tool and carve out the design as usual. Use a battery operated tea light to light your pumpkin! The best part, you can have your child sign the ...

One of the things that I really like about Fall is that the warm and hearty meals are back on the table. My husband and I both enjoy soup. We are working on the kids- the two year seems to like soup okay; no such luck with the four year old. One soup that I really like is Potato Cheese Soup.

To save the most money on meat I buy when the prices are low and freeze it in dinner size portions. In fact I have not bought chicken, steak or pork for over a month now. We have been relying on our nice freezer stockpile. Since I do not have a Vacuum Sealer (the FoodSaver is on my want list!), I use Glad Press ...

Polenta Recipe

I try each week to tackle motherhood, working, co-owning a business and trying to be creative in the kitchen. I have come a long way from thinking you boil the water for 7 minutes then you add the pasta sauce. We all have our strengths and weaknesses. I would have a super picture for you of this great meal but I didn't have the card in my camera as I snapped away.  Yes, I am embarrassed to admit that but I got the family fed. This recipe was submitted by Heather.  This was super yummy and ...

Grilled Pesto Turkey Panini Recipe This sandwich sounds so good! I love pesto and sandwiches are a meal we have often when running to soccer practice. Thanks to Connie for this recipe.
