I can’t figure out why but the deeper we get into graduation season the more I miss home.  This is weird because absolutely no one in my family is graduating this year.  Strange, yeah?  I mean, there was a period of time where we had some kind of college or high school graduation for a good three or four years but this year we’ve got nothing....

A few weeks ago I was wandering through the store and glimpsed a box of fruit roll-ups.  I remember as a kid I loved popping open my lunch box and seeing one of those elusive treats.  Chewy, sweet, fruity, delicious.  It was the perfect end to a packed lunch.  Fast forward 20 some odd years later and I still enjoy them from time to time.  Except,...

Believe it or not when I woke up one morning determined to make bacon cinnamon rolls I did not envision that this was how they were going to turn out.  Like at all.  It’s obvious now that I don’t eat the refrigerated cinnamon rolls often enough to understand what they really look like.  Lesson learned.  Luckily for all of us my improvisation...

I’m generally a pretty plain Jane when it comes to pizza.  Extra cheese.  Pepperoni.  The end.  But occasionally I like to mix it up.  You know with mini pizzas.  Or if I want to get really crazy I’ll make a ham and cheese calzone.  I’m a rebel.  What can I say.  But the older I get the more my taste evolves....

As we gratefully welcome spring in our house I want to make absolutely every single thing taste like lemon!  Lemon cookies.  Lemon cake.  Lemon chicken.  Lemon is one of my favorite citrus flavors and I like a lemon flavor so tart you have to suck your cheeks in until it passes.  Which is exactly how I made my faaaaavorite lemon cupcakes. So...

Way back in the way back days when I was a preschool teacher I loved the seasonal, holiday, specialty lessons.  Somehow the kids enjoy learning about colors so much more when you’re taking them on a fall nature walk collecting different colored leaves than being stuck in a classroom looking at them on a chart. Earth day was always one of my favorite special...

A few months ago we got the chance to try one of the most delicious ways to enjoy the yummy crunchy awesomeness of a brownie.  Brownie brittle!  It was on sale and I had a couple coupons that made it literally free.  So why not grab a few bags and see what’s what?  If we didn’t like it it didn’t cost us anything so we could always...

I try my hardest to plan ahead for dinners in our house.  I do this so I can better plan my trips to the grocery store and because whenever we don’t plan dinner for the week we wend up eating some form of pasta every. single. night. because everyone is too tired to be more creative than boiling some water.  Or eating cereal.  True life. So...

My grandparents were born and raised in the heart of Pennsylvania Dutch country and met each other their first year of school.  After growing up together, comforting each other through the loss of two parents, a stint in the army, and a long distance relationship while my grandma attended nursing school they tied the knot in 1953 and lived in wedded bliss, moving...

It’s a tradition in our house to make wontons, as dumplings are traditionally associated with the holiday and the kids love them too. Wontons are easy to make, tasty, kid-friendly, and you can get everything you need at your local grocery store for a relatively low price....
