Quinoa-Crusted Fish Nuggets and Roasted Root Veggies

About 14 months ago I used to LOVE cooking. More like it was an obsession. A strong obsession. Here is why: My husband would only work half days so he would be home by 2ish everyday. My son was only 3 months old. Basically a cute little blob who didn’t move. Mark would come home… Continue reading Quinoa-Crusted Fish Nuggets and Roasted Root Veggies

5 Freezer Meals and 4 Hours Later

For some reason I went CRAZY the other day and decided to tackle 5 recipes in one day. By 8pm I was like “what in the freaking hell was I thinking?”. What I was originally thinking is “oh Mark will be home by 4 that will give me pleantly of time to make 5 meals”. Was I… Continue reading 5 Freezer Meals and 4 Hours Later

Guacamole Chicken and Sweet Potato Fries

Most of the time I feel like trying to figure out what to make for dinner is half the battle. Especially when I’m not in the mood to cook, shop…or even stand. Mark made his amazing guac last night (seriously, so yum) and it was about to be dead as doornails today, so I decided to… Continue reading Guacamole Chicken and Sweet Potato Fries

Crispy Cheese Wafers

I made these for my child. Then my husband came home and tried to consume an entire cookie sheet of them. This is my constant battle. Trying to prevent my husband from eating all my child’s food. He ate a bite and asked, “What is this? It’s amazing!!!”. My answer…butter. No seriously, there are 2 sticks… Continue reading Crispy Cheese Wafers

Turkey and Beef Baby Meatballs

Well, the title of this post sounds absolutely repulsive. However, these meatballs, both flavors, are freaking amazing. Seriously. I like these meatballs better than any other meatball I have every made, or tasted for that matter. The basis of both these recipes was the same. You can use whatever ground meat you want – turkey, beef, chicken etc. Then… Continue reading Turkey and Beef Baby Meatballs

Baby Food Round 2 : Tofu and Chicken Nuggets

I’m pretty sure if my husband knew I was making tofu for my child right now – he would divorce me. Since tofu can’t be killed with a bow and arrow, it’s a shunned upon food in this household. I tried to make a tofu based dinner once… it ended tragically. Mark only consumes things that roam the… Continue reading Baby Food Round 2 : Tofu and Chicken Nuggets

I emailed my husband today and told him the baby cost me more at the grocery store this week than my portion of the bill. How does that even happen, he’s a small baby… Continue reading Making Baby Food : It’s What I do Now
