Perfect Diner Home Fries

I’ve lived in the same neighborhood since 2002. That’s twelve years of going to the same diner. And I always get one of three meals: Grilled Cheese with Fries, Egg Salad Sandwich with Onion Rings, or Bagel with Cream Cheese and Home Fries. (Incidentally, time of day does not affect which one I choose.) Now […]

How To Have Homemade Biscuits Every Day

Biscuits are one of the quickest, easiest homemade breads to get from ingredients to table. Nothing needs to be room temperature (in fact, the colder the better!), and the dough doesn’t need to rise before baking.

Some Eggs Are Making Me Sick

I’ve been meaning to write about this for a long time. Someone other than me must be suffering from this and not know it. It took me months to figure out that eggs were making me sick to my stomach. Maybe I can help someone figure it out quicker than I did. About fifteen months […]

Doing Pinterest Right

I think I follow too many food boards on Pinterest. But at least I have my daughter’s lunch packed for the first day of school. Thanks for the inspiration, Kelby!

And The Grossest Spoiled Food Item You’ve Ever Found In Your House Or Car is…

Yesterday I was tidying up the house a bit in anticipation of the kids coming home today from sleep away camp. Jake’s been gone for almost two weeks, Fiona for almost six. Basically I didn’t want them to know how slovenly I’d been while they were gone. I came across Jake’s NY Yankees lunchbox in […]

Creamy Hershey’s Syrup Dessert Dip Recipe

[The following post is sponsored by Hershey] My family uses a lot of Hershey’s Syrup, especially in summer. My son Jake and I both love chocolate milk, and I’ve been incorporating it into my exercise recovery. With the right balance of carbs to protein, chocolate milk helps me recover after my longer runs (and man, […]
