Non-Traditional Green Chimichurri Sauce

  So after I turned 50 lbs. of tomatoes and half a bushel of peppers into salsa for canning, I found myself with an extra 1 1/2 cups of finely chopped cilantro. What to do? Make chimichurri of course. It must be noted, of course, that traditional chimichurri from Argentina and Uruguay doesn't actually use... Continue Reading →

It’s been a long day…

So I haven't really written since I left for my business trip last Thursday. For good reason. From the moment I walked out the door at 5:30 AM on Thursday until the moment I got home at 11:30 PM on Sunday, I was running. 7 AM until 3 AM the next morning each day. And... Continue Reading →

Mild Fire Roasted Salsa

So last night, when I told my husband that I was heading to the farm this morning to pick up salsa making supplies and asked him how much salsa I should make for the year. "Do you think 12 pints will be enough?" "No way! Quarts, not pints. How about 50? I really like salsa."... Continue Reading →

Hot Fire Roasted Salsa

This is the version of my salsa that I made for my husband today, who likes much more heat than the girls and I can handle. It's not ridiculous, but it's too spicy for my taste. You can adjust the heat and flavor to your own preferences by switching out the peppers: just make sure... Continue Reading →

Homemade Skillet Chili Mac

If you're anything like me, a sizeable portion of your life is spent devoted to creating dishes that are somewhat healthy, that your ridiculously picky tiny people will still eat. My girls are great with anything that revolves around "normal" fruits, bread, snack food, sugar, or chicken nuggets, but that is about the extent of their culinary... Continue Reading →

Four Cheese Skillet Lasagna

Dinner last night was a one-pot wonder. The picky, picky toddlers ate it happily, which is the triumph I pray for every day...and I managed to sneak veggies in! Next time, I'll add more vegetables (now that I know they'll go for the sauce and won't notice them) and skip the bread crumb topping to cut... Continue Reading →

Sauerkraut: Easy, Tasty, Magical!

      So I promised to post this last night, but then after building the girls' new art table, chopping up six pounds of onions and portioning them for freezing, making dinner for the Guys, and doing dishes for what seemed like the 18th time of the day, I went to bed instead. However,... Continue Reading →

Catching Up

Every night since I last wrote here, I've thought to myself that I need to come post something. And then I look at how late it is, and think about how tired I am, and say, "I'll just do it tomorrow..." Suffice it to say, I've been busy. In the last five days, I've: Gone... Continue Reading →

In the interest of transparency…

I shared the above meme on Facebook yesterday after it came across my feed, thinking about all the women I see on Instagram posting their glowing glamour pics mid-workout from the gym. I cringe inside posting the picture of myself post-workout above. I uploaded it to Instagram earlier today, my proof that I held myself... Continue Reading →
