Better Than Rotisserie Roast Chicken

Have you ever attempted to make a whole chicken in your oven? Were you disappointed that it was dry or tasteless even though you added plenty of salt, vegetables in the cavity, herbs, and aromatics? I bet you said, “Forget this! I’m going to buy a rotisserie chicken from the store!” I hear you. I really do…. Keep reading →

Basic Dried Fruit

Fruit is the perfect snack food for children because it has numerous benefits that they can’t get from eating anything else. I’m sure if you thought through the fruits you gave your child most recently you’d say they were either fresh, canned, or frozen, right? Dehydrated fruits are another great option, but the variety at… Keep reading →

The Most Perfect Tomato Onion Salad

My husband’s Argentinian traditions run deep. Growing up, he had an asado (equivalent to a steak and chicken BBQ complete with all the animal’s innards) with his family every Saturday. Every.Saturday. That’s like a ton of meat. Over the years, we’ve had our fair share of asados as a family and with friends, but nowhere… Keep reading →

One Ingredient Dulce de Leche

Although my husband was born and raised in Argentina he rarely ate anything with the popular caramel sauce, Dulce de Leche. His family lunches ended with a small amount of fruit (only on occasion), and that was dessert. How can you live in a country that offers such a beautiful sauce and never indulge? It’s… Keep reading →

Fruity Oatmeal Mix-Ins

As I mentioned last week, I used to feed my daughters oatmeal with mashed banana nearly every morning, but I got tired of the monotony, and I’m sure they did too. Now they are eating crepes with fresh fruit and… Keep reading →

Quick & Easy Oven Fries

As a newlywed, I made a lot of new recipes. Even if I came across a great recipe that we both liked, it would be months before I decided to make it again. That’s one thing my husband complains about: I don’t make his favorite foods enough. But I’ve learned more recently that it is… Keep reading →

Scrumptious Split Pea Soup Recipe

I guess you could say I was a pretty picky eater growing up. I pretty much avoided onions in anything. I still ate salsa, but I only dipped the chips straight in and straight back out again so that none of the chunks of onions (or other veggies) could get on my chip! I’ve almost completely… Keep reading →

Poor Man’s Bread

Our focus lately has been on saving more money. One of the most effective ways to do that with pretty immediate results is through a grocery budget. So a couple weeks ago, we got more serious about bread-making. While I would love to make bread every morning, it just doesn’t happen. My husband has actually… Keep reading →

How to Make Rutabaga {or Swede} Puree for Baby

I am a big believer in feeding babies variety. My little Bella turns 1 soon, and she will have tried 50+ foods by that time. Rutabaga is just one of them. Before doing a feeding schedule for introducing new foods to Bella, I had no idea what a rutabaga was. I had seen them at… Keep reading →
