Kool-Aid Cookies

I’m so sorry. I really am. But I’ve done it again. I’ve made a recipe from the Hannah Swensen series. I can’t help it. There are so many recipes. Honestly, towards the end of the series (I’ve got one more to go and I’ll be all caught up) the recipes are my main reason for…

Annelle’s Cherry Coke

I’m on a roll this week. Apparently spring and Easter has me thinking of Steel Magnolias. Why, yes, that IS an affiliate link… I haven’t watched it in a while. I should get on that. In the meantime, we needed a fun drink to go with Drum’s Pork and Beans. Annelle’s Cherry Coke will fit…

Drum’s Pork and Beans

Today I’m revisiting an old favorite, Steel Magnolias (affiliate link-you know the drill.) I prefer the older version, but both are good. Watch the one you like best. The menfolk don’t get a lot of screen time, but I still adore Tom Skerritt’s Drum. He’s sort of goofy, but when the chips are down he’s got his…

The Girl Who Chased the Moon

A year or so ago, I fell in love with the books of Sarah Addison Allen. They are lovely novels, full of romance, small town folks, and just a twist of the supernatural. And there’s usually a food focus somewhere along the way. They are just such sweet and wonderful stories that I think you should…

Fish Custard – The Savory

As promised, I also made the savory version of the Eleventh Doctor’s regeneration meal. I cheated a bit. I have a bag of frozen fish sticks from Trader Joe’s. My kids both like fish more than the hubs and I do. While I love seafood, I’m more of a shellfish kind of girl, so I…

Fish Custard – The Sweet

Today’s the day! Doctor Who finally returns with new episodes! Yay! J-man and I will be watching. We’re also going to be enjoying some more Who-themed foods. For the Whovians in the crowd, the choice should be fairly obvious. After all, is there a  more iconic food scene in the revival than Matt Smith’s post-regeneration sequence?…

The Sonic Screwdriver

You guys. You. Guys. Doctor Who is almost back. After a year with no new Who, our long global nightmare is almost over. Well, I guess since the show once went away for years and years, I shouldn’t complain. More accurately, we’re getting more new NuWho… but I digress. To celebrate this momentous occasion my oldest, J-man, and I are indulging…

Happy Birthday Twinkies!

I’m forgoing my usual Thirsty Thursday post to wish a very happy birthday to everyone’s favorite cream-filled cake. On this day in 1930, Twinkies rolled out to the good of the world. Whether saving folks after nuclear annihilation, as on Family Guy, or getting people through the zombie apocalypse like they did in Zombieland, these little cakes are something…

Cooking with the Kids

So, I try to use healthy, real, whole food as often as possible. Sometimes, though, you just have to have a little fun. Especially when you’ve got two young-ish boys that you’re trying to teach life skills. I would love to believe that my gentleman will go off to college with the skills and desire…
