It is officially back to school time and like many mom's (and dads!), I am working full time. By the time I get home, it is closer to dinner then not and my kiddos are starving. They can start many meals on their own but if the truth be known... they kinda like having mom cook as it seems to… MORE

Has it really been since September I wrote a blog? Sheesh!  Time flies when you have teens in the house. I've learned a few things about cooking and making meals since the last time I blogged. I can no longer make a "4" serving recipe anymore. See, I have two children who will INHALE… MORE

Turn your head and the seasons change and by gosh- here come the holidays! I have been crazy busy keeping up with the Ambassador program and cooking all kinds of new, but fun things, to the absolute delight of my family. I made reviews on most of them so if you check my reviews, you will see… MORE

I'm the first one to admit I don't venture too far out of my comfort zone when I'm cooking.  Ingredients are just too expensive for me to be too daring- BUT.. BUT... every once in awhile you have to take a risk and since I had a task to accomplish this month for the AR Allstar program, this… MORE

Yep, its true. We've been microwave-free for over a year now and quite honestly, I do not miss it. When we moved from our rental home to our own home a year ago, we faced the reality many new homeowners face. Our house did not come with any but the standard appliances and the microwave, which… MORE

I woke up this morning to the news of the tragedy in Aurora and my heart just sank.  I was immediately taken back to 1999, to a little town called Littleton. A town I had never heard of until that day.  That day when two boys took over their high school and ended the life of twelve of their… MORE

Awhile back, I posted a blog about my disdain over rating recipes that were not really the recipe at all but actually the reviewers complete overhaul of the original recipe. Responses were both good and not so good, which is fine. If you blog, you can expect view points on all sides.. it is… MORE

Today was a better day then its been in awhile. I had the same pressure in my nose that I normally do and continue to achy/ light headed. But, since I have back started taking the oil of oregano and doing the saline flushes with distilled water, I do find the symptoms have subsided quite a… MORE

When we moved to the PNW three years ago, I was of the mindset my allergies would clear. We were leaving behind the smog, heat and Santa Ana winds of Southern California. My allergies did not leave me- they changed. For the worse.  During spring, my sinus passages ache and feeling dizzy is a… MORE

About Me
Running at top speed mama to two, I love to write and cook. My blog focuses on cooking stories tied into life with my wild ones. I'm passionate about my wonderful children, husband, Siamese cat and coming soon puppy. I'm also an avid deleter of spam so enjoy!!
My favorite things to cook
PIZZA! Macaroni and Cheese, pesto carbonara, homemade wontons, egg rolls, spaghetti, tuna croquettes and PIZZA!.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every year when we decorate our Christmas tree, I serve fried rice balls with marinara sauce. Over the last couple of years, I've developed a tradition of serving a taco bar on New Years eve night.
My cooking triumphs
The first time I made bulgogi marinade for my husband. He'd not had it before and raved about the meat after he grilled it.
My cooking tragedies
The night I was making homemade wontons and due to humidity, they all decided to stick to each other. Wonton balls, anyone?
