100 Book Challenge, Cooking

Books #77, #78 and #79: A bunch of Paleo cookbooks

Yes, I read cookbooks cover-to-cover and yes, I’m going to count them toward my 100 book challenge.  So there. Last spring, I got the chance to test recipes for Natalie Perry, food blogger at www.perrysplate.com and cookbook author of The Big Book of Paleo Slow Cooking published in 2017 and now The Big Book of Paleo Pressure Cooking, which just came out.  It was super fun to be part of the

Book #2: The 21 Day Sugar Detox

I just went through a mental argument, telling myself that a cookbook shouldn’t count toward my 100 book goal, but then reminding myself that I read cookbooks cover to cover, so therefore it counts.  Then I told myself that it’s lame to blog about it, but I told that Negative Nellie voice to get over myself and just write something down, you stinker.  I’m very nice to my inner critic, as y

What’s Eating Your Child?

I'm a bit obsessed with food, but not in a bad way.  It's more like the whole process of making, growing, preparing, and eating food is utterly fascinating to me.  I think it's because I discovered food later in life.  Yes, I have eaten food my entire life, but I was a terribly picky eater as a child, then became a young adult who found the whole process of preparing food to be tedious and "dom

Cooking with Kids

Thanks to my friend, Christina, I'm completely devoted to Family Fun magazine. I started subscribing to it back when my oldest child was too little to enjoy any of the crafty/cooking/game ideas in the magazine. Now that my kids are big and perfect for the articles in there, I find that I can retrieve some of what I've read over the many years of subscribing and not feel completely inept. I use

King Arthur to the Rescue

I love to cook. I love putting together ingredients and making something yummy. I love the whole creative process of baking. It probably is such a novelty to me because I never made anything until I had a husband (who suffered much during my initial efforts) and then children (who have suffered less since I spent some time experimenting on my husband). I didn't bother to learn baking from my m

Yum-O!

It's probably completely bizarre, but I like to watch the Food Network while I run on the treadmill. Think of it as having something good to run for, I guess. Also, there's not much else on that time of day when you don't have many channel options to pick from. Plus, if I'm lucky, I'll hit a Rachael Ray rerun. You know, "30 Minute Meals with Rachael Ray" the awesome show that is actually fun t

Deceptively Delicious

Every time I say this title out loud, I want to sing it like from the old Lucky Charms commercial. "It's deceptively delicious!" Then I jump up in the air and click my heels together. This book was the most delightfully covert thing I've read lately. You'll have to go read the wikipedia link I put there. It's tickles me to no end to apply that to feeding my children. I have a secret passion
