Tri (our) Pasta Salad!

  Yesterday was Sunday brunch-becue day! Steak & chicken shish-kabobs required a light and refreshing side, so we decided go with a tri-colored pasta salad. This dish was especially fun because a major component, the tomatoes and cucumbers, began as its own side dish (compliments of a guest), but when deciding what to add to the pastaContinue reading “Tri (our) Pasta Salad!”

Vegetable Cream Cheese Bagels!

This morning we had guests over the house. Added to our already large family, that made for quite a few people to feed. For a quick, delicious breakfast I opted for bagels with assorted cream cheeses. If you have an ALDI near you (there are three near us here in Tampa) this meal costs just a few dollarsContinue reading “Vegetable Cream Cheese Bagels!”

Decorative Napkin Rings

Happy Day before Thanksgiving! This being our favorite holiday and all, we like to make an impression. So this year, we decided to spruce things up with some hand made napkin rings.

Rainbow Pancakes 1 cup flour Pinch sea salt 2 tablespoons sugar (weContinue reading “Rainbow Pancakes”

Stuffed French Toast Sticks

Holy cow, talk about delicious! To be honest, I doubted my wife when I saw her removing these from the stove-top. I have my fair share of recipes that haven’t quite gone according to plan, and for a moment I expected the same out of these. Let me assure you, I could not have been more wrong! These sweet cream cheeseContinue reading “Stuffed French Toast Sticks”

Crêpes for Breakfast!

Today for breakfast we treated the kids to crêpes stuffed with vanilla whipped cream. The only complaint? I should’ve made more! Here’s the recipe. If you plan ahead, it’s a breeze: Whipped Cream Stuffed Crêpes Crêpe batter: 1 cup flour – pinch of salt – 1 cup milk – tablespoon vegetable oil – dash of maple syrup – 1Continue reading “Crêpes for Breakfast!”

Fauxpaccino

Our morning coffee is our daily dose of sanity, no matter when we get to squeeze it in our day. And if I can’t have a real cappuccino, this is the next best thing: Your favorite coffee + sweetened milk warmed for about 20 seconds in the microwave + The AEROLATTE: *The best $15 you’ll ever spend. Whisk theContinue reading “Fauxpaccino”
