Cook It Up! Cookbook Challenge Link-Up

  Welcome to the December Edition of Cook It Up! Feel free to join in the challenge at any time, any month. The idea is to pull those cookbooks of your shelves and use them.

You can cook from one cookbook over the course of the month or pick and choose […]

Homemade Ramen Soup

Homemade Ramen Soup

I have a secret guilty pleasure involving our trips to Sam’s Club. I love browsing the book section of the store (ok, which one of us wouldn’t). I always look at the table with the kid books and we usually come home with a new story book for the littles. I also always check out the cooking magazine display rack. I had never seen the issues of Cook’s Illustrated before shopping Sam’s, and I’m now […]

Dinner at Our Table

Dinner at Our Table

The other day I was brainstorming ideas for Weekend Cooking posts and I started to think about how our dinners have changed since our kids have joined us at the dinner table. Part of this was prompted by my picking up Dinner: A Love Story (the cookbook, Jenny Rosenstrach also has a website of the same name) and thinking about how others tackle dinnertime in their households. I’ll save the post on how our dinners have […]

Weelicious Cookbook Review

Weelicious Cookbook Review

  October. You think of colorful fallen leaves. Breaking out the sweaters. Piping hot pumpkin spice lattes. Pretty sure it’s been warm enough here this month as some of y’all’s summer months. While I love the 80s (when it cools down to the 50s and 60s at night), it doesn’t quite feel like fall. I had planned to break out my soups/stews/slow cooker cookbooks out this month, but…  Plus we had my sister’s wedding at […]

Checking out Cookbooks

Checking out Cookbooks

Dinners have been pretty uninspired at my house lately. I could bang my head on my desk all day long in frustration from the lack of input that I get from the gang on what they want to eat in the evenings. The other night I had a “FINE” moment and suggested grilled cheese sandwiches. With regular sandwich bread and Kraft singles. You would have thought they all won the lottery. Ugh. Why do I even […]

Tiny Food Party and Super Small Deep Dish Pizzas

Tiny Food Party and Super Small Deep Dish Pizzas

    Are you familiar with Quirk Books? They are THE awesome publisher at…well…quirky things. They’re the ones who brought us Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children (among many other title). They also have a line of really awesome cookbooks.  I received Tiny Food Party from Quirk two falls ago (I know, I know) and while I’ve browsed through the cookbook many many times I’ve never actually cooked anything out of […]

What’s for Dinner? Meal Planning Woes

What’s for Dinner? Meal Planning Woes

What’s for dinner? The dreaded question. Actually, the question I dread is the one I ask: “What do you want for dinner?” Elle isn’t old enough yet to make any suggestions for what she wants for dinner–her stock answer is Mac and Cheese, whether that’s really what she wants or not. Most times the answer I get when I ask what Scott wants for dinner is Spaghetti, which I often deny because we just had […]

Operation Use My Grill

Operation Use My Grill

Follow my blog with Bloglovin   Imagine me doing my “Yay I know how to turn on my grill dance.” Except that one time that we were out of propane and the two other times when Scott had turned off the propane and I didn’t realize it. But otherwise, I know how to turn on my grill! And actually kind of sort of use the grill for cooking things. If you’re new here (hi!), I challenged […]
