What's your stress hour look like?

Most nights, when I get home from work, I immediately start cooking dinner. The first hour after I get home is a bit of a blur: There is food to prepare, people to greet and those morning chores to complete (if I didn't finish them earlier). If I can get dinner on the table by 6:45, then it is a really good day.…

Is eating out a luxury if you have a baby?

Me and my husband, we love to eat! :-D We love to cook (well, my husband does, I just bake), we love to go out for a delicious dinner and when choosing a travel destination, good food is a must.

Compared to other parents who I hear are complaining that they haven’t eaten outbecause of their baby for months, I must…

"Food tastes better in the Dining Room"

My son's birthday just passed. Since it's the beginning of the week and we'll be celebrating on the weekend, we knew we still had to do something ON his birthday so I baked a cake and cooked dinner. We always eat food at the same time, which is whatever time I finish cooking, but we eat in different rooms. My kids eat in the kitchen, I usually eat in my room while watching one of my favorite shows and my husband likes to eat in…

Dinner for one: Eating by yourself

I know several moms who have multiple children with active schedules. Those Moms spend their evenings and weekends chauffeuring their children to various sports activities, musical activities and dance lessons. I'm always amazed by that (think of the planning and coordination that takes), and I usually have one question for them: Where do you find the time for dinner?…

Family dinner time: There's an app for that

When I was little, I was an avid reader. (Despite my 100 challenge last year, I'm hesitant to describe myself that way now, because I find it difficult to find the time to read.) I used to read after school, before school and sometimes in the middle of the night with a flashlight (sorry, Mom). I remember one time I tried to read at the dinner table.…

Portuguese Pizza! Eggs and Ham, Yes I am!

I absolutely love this pizza! I was craving it so much that I had to call my mom to get the recipe. She also gave me 2 nice tips to make the pizza even more tasty! In Brazil, we call this pizza a "Pizza Portuguesa". What a delicious fusion of flavors from the ham, onions, boiled egg, and kalamata olives! Many might be tempted to leave out one of the ingredients like the boiled egg, onions, or olives, but please don't! All these ingredients are essential, as they work together to create…

Why we now eat family-style

A few weeks ago, we started letting our son serve himself his own food at dinnertime. Up until that point, I would bring him his pre-plated food and be met with a barrage of complaints…

Brazilian Ham Lasagna With Red Meaty and White Cheesy Sauce

A great friend of mine just had a beautiful baby boy, and BOY OH BOY, I know how tough it is to make dinner and take care of a newborn! So, I offered to prepare her favorite meal. She told me that her favorite dish was lasagna, even joking how she must be related to Garfield somehow... "Lasagna...", I said, thinking that I actually haven't had my mom's wonderful lasagna for a long, long time. I think the last time I ate her lasagna was 8 years ago, when she came to visit us to see her new…

Welcome to dinner: Pass the pancakes

I know I don't reference my Dad a lot in this blog, but that's mostly because I am really good at apologizing to my Mom. (Sorry, Dad.) Although my parents separated when I was little, I have some very nice memories of my Dad. For example, sometimes, he would make us waffles for dinner. It was pretty cool, because waffles are awesome and it added a touch of whimsy to an otherwise regular week day. He'd even put chocolate chips into…

Should We Eat This?

I cannot be the only...who has slaved away in the kitchen, with multiple pots on the stove top, the oven a'baking, and even the BBQ smoking away outside, to finally sit down at the dinner table, look at the food and think, "is this cooked enough?"

As a mother of a finicky eater, the persnickety Sonny Boy,  I threw…

Family dinnertime: Mom, what's for dinner?

Do you eat dinner together as a family every night? No? That's OK.

Lots of families don't have the time or ability to have the entire family sit down and eat dinner, and it is causing them guilt. This post by Abigail Carroll suggests that when it comes to dinner, "perhaps it's…

But I Wanted Wiener Wraps and Tator Tots!!

My initiation into the mom scene was a bit different than most.  It wasn’t until after I had spent a few years helping to raise my step-kids that my son was born.  I wasn’t going to be able to bond with these kids while changing diapers or teaching them their ABC’s or snuggling with them at bedtime.  This was…

Crockpot Beef- My Own Recipe

http://www.thepiggytoes.com/2013/02/13/crockpot-beef-my-own-recipe/

This is what I call a Lazy Mamas Crockpot Dinner!  I came up with this dish one morning with no recipe, I wasn’t inspired by anything in particular; I opened my refrigerator and had carrots, pre-sliced mushrooms and chuck roast.  That was dinner.  You can see how lazy I was because I didn’t even cut the carrots, but with…

Crockpot Mexican Chicken

http://www.thepiggytoes.com/2013/01/28/crockpot-mexican-chicken/

I put together this crockpot on a cold, snowy day.  I knew by lunch-time that the last thing I wanted to do was stand in the kitchen cooking dinner come 5pm so this was perfect!  I put all of the ingredients in the crockpot, stirred and turned it on high for 4 hours.

Though I couldn’t taste anything (thank…
