I don’t give my kids Jell-O.  I mean what IS Jell-O anyways?  Well, on Thursday Noah was sick and the doctor said his throat hurt really bad so give him soft, smooth things like Jell-O.  So off to the store I went to buy Jell-O.  On Thursday Noah did not like the Jell-O.  He didn’t … Continue reading

Nana’s Pound Cake

When I married into the Bowers family I married into a family with a lot of great cooks.  When Nathan and I were dating his mom would cook for us probably four times (at least) a week.  For my first Christmas I got a cookbook that MaryJane (my fabulous mother-in-law) made of family recipes.  Both … Continue reading

Orange Ricotta Muffins

Recipe Boy is a blog I follow.  I follow his mom, Recipe Girl and I think its pretty neat her 11 (?) year old son has his own blog about food as well so I follow it.  It is fun to see such a young writer maneuver his way around a blog.  The other day … Continue reading

Healthy Banana Bran Muffins

What I Ate: Meatloaf

Now I obviously did not plan these meals to be posted when I planned my meals.  I had thought about doing this series of posts for a while and after I grocery shopped I realized this week would be a good week to do it.  I don’t think most people admit to eating meatloaf.  I … Continue reading

What I Ate: Pizza

Tonight we ate pizza for dinner.  Hadley and I made pizza to be more exact.  I need to make pizza more often.  It is SUPER simple and extremely delicious.  I guess it isn’t always the healthiest but it isn’t that bad and again, easy and delicious. Let’s start in the morning.  This morning I made … Continue reading

What I Ate: Asian Lettuce Wraps

Hey Everyone, day two here of What I Ate.  Aren’t y’all excited?  I know you are!  This post is going to be short and sweet because I am TIRED (I realize it’s only 8:15). For breakfast I made a new pancake recipe from Pioneer Woman.  LOVE HER.  It is called Edna Mae’s Sour Cream Pancakes. … Continue reading
