Summer Desserts should be FROZEN!

I had the best of intentions... I was going to make these spactacular looking Frozen Chocolate Souffles from the Kraft Canada website...  they were going to be epic, and my kids were going to bow down to the amazing desserts that this momma makes.  But I wandered.  I didn't follow the directions, instead throwing a twist here and a replacement there... See, I didnt have any chocolate pudding, so I figured ice cream would work instead.  I mean... … [Read more...]

Fruit and Nut Peanut Butter Snack Bites

I am grateful that my kids get to enjoy that same snacking ease after a long day at school, but we … [Read more...]

When Life Gives You Lemons…. #WhatsCooking

Spring is here! I think. They tell me that Easter is this weekend.  The stores are filled with tulips and daffodils...though my garden is showing no signs of life.  Quite frankly it's still frozen solid, with a four foot layer of snow atop it.  I think mother nature has here clock all messed up.  Christmas was green, and mild...spring like really.  Easter...well, our Easter will once again be white.

So.  It's 4:30 pm and I forgot to take out something for dinner...again.  I swear at times I can be THE MOST SCATTERBRAINED Momma on the planet.  I know that I need to feed my family, and one would think after 10 years of parenting I would have this whole dinner thing down pat by now.
