What I Learned From 30 Days Of Preparing A New Recipe Each Day

What I Learned From 30 Days Of Preparing A New Recipe Each Day

  November Challenge. Phew! I made it through my November Challenge. At the end of 30 days, I prepared a total of 36 "new to me" recipes. I found this challenge to be...well...challenging. I'm busy running a household and raising three teenagers and trying to keep a puppy from demolishing every scrap of paper or [...]

Recipes Tried In November – Round 4

  November Recipes. I still can't believe that I have completed the process of making 26 "new to me" recipes. Only 4 more days to go! I was talking to my mom the other day and I told her that I thought I would crush my November Challenge. Her response was, "and do you know why?". [...]

  November Recipes. Happy Monday! I managed to complete Week 3 of my November Challenge.  If you missed Week 1 and Week 2, be sure to check those out. As in the rounds before, I've included links to where I've pinned the recipe to Pinterest. I'll also let you know if I made any substitutions [...]

Recipes Tried In November -Round 2

  November Recipes. This round of recipes that I tried for my November Challenge were more along the easy-peasy lines. If you miss round 1 of recipes, you can find that here. In Friday’s post, I talked about how insane my week decided to be. Yet somehow, I did manage to try out a new [...]

Recipes Tried in November – Round 1

  November Challenge. Even though we are only 6 days into November, I'm still excited that my November Challenge is going well. Since my review of making a recipe a day would be a rather cumbersome read at the end of 30 days, I thought that I'd break it into smaller posts and fill you [...]

30 Days Of…November Challenge

30 Days Of…November Challenge

Monthly Challenge. Challenges. Life is full of them.  Some we don't ask for. Others we invite, in order to help us grow. If you saw Saturday's post, then you already know that Miss Sunshine woke up ill for her 14th birthday. In fact, today she's home from school and still ill. On top of that...it's [...]

Mimosa?  Yes, please!

Sparkling wine....orange juice....and....strawberries.  During these long days of summer this sounds like a little slice of heaven. I know, I know... Wait, it's supposed to be champagne.  No,  there's triple sec.  Is that a Buck's Fizz?  Are you sure you have it right? I think mimosa sounds nicer whether there is triple sec, Grand Marnier, [...]

Signs of Summertime

Summertime is basically upon us.  My boys are finished with school, having high enough grades and low enough absences to be exempt from finals.  My daughter is on the countdown with half days to finish out the middle school year (exemptions are only for high school credit classes). We are starting to make our summer [...]

Chicken Basil Meatloaf & Roasted Cauliflower

Next up on our trying out some new recipes was Chicken Basil Meatloaf.  I went to my new favorite go-to recipe source PaleOMG.  The recipe can be found here.  I did make some changes.  It calls for fresh parsley, but I had this amazing basil that my niece had grown in her garden, dried, and [...]

Sweet Potato Meatloaf

I've decided that maybe I'll be Paleo-ish.  Yes, I like this term better.  You might remember that when I decided to go wheat-free, my husband decided to jump on my healthy bandwagon, but he prefers the paleo version of life.  Well, I cook the meals and while I am mostly trying to accommodate (sorry, but [...]
