I love egg salad. Or I just love eggs in general. I actually birthed a son who absolutely hates eggs….I can’t fathom how people cannot like them, but this child doesn’t and it’s foreign to me. Read more

Pancake Cupcakes with Maple Buttercream and Candied Bacon

Well it’s finally February, and yesterday Punxsutawney Phil didn’t see his shadow, so that means an early Spring…which I can handle. Finally though after a pretty mild winter thus far we did get some sort of blizzard here in MN. Nothing to phone home about…school got out early, the wind is sure blowing, but unfortunately the snow has stopped. Like I’ve been telling people, the last few years here it has been pretty mild snow wise. We haven’t received too much of it and I believe that if it’s going to be cold, there better be snow otherwise let’s just move onto Spring! On another note, I made cupcakes! No ordinary cupcakes either. Breakfast cupcakes. Cupcakes to wake up your senses. Now I can honestly say that it’s acceptable to eat dessert for breakfast with these Pancake Cupcakes with Maple Buttercream and Candied Bacon!! Read more

Ok, so I have to admit…my household has a slight addiction to Chinese food. Like when I say slight, I mean epic. It’s horrible and we should probably seek help but we just can’t help ourselves, we are total and complete junkies. Sadly our favorite Chinese place has been under-going renovations for the last few months and we have had to go without. Doesn’t keep us from trying to recreate some of our faves at home.  Read more

Good morning everyone. This morning was definitely not a morning that I wanted to get up. I had a kid up all night coughing and I forgot how cold a room can get during the fall and winter months when you don’t turn on the heat. Burr, talk about not wanting to leave the covers. But obviously I obliged and got myself out of bed and got the kids up and dressed for school. Now I am sitting here writing this post as I drool over what it is about.  Read more

So first off I apologize if this post is short and sweet. I have a lovely 2-year-old daughter who has a double ear infection and we just surpassed night 3 with no sleep. I feel so bad for my poor baby girl. I have her on antibiotics and have tried the old wives methods but nothing is working. So I’m going to go try to pick up some of those pain relieving ear drops today. Wish me luck people! This mama and her little nugget need some rest. With the kids off from school for MEA and daycare kids here it’s going to be a long day.  Read more

Football season is finally underway! Whoop! Now my husband and I aren’t big sports people, but my 10-year-old is! He is the student manager for the varsity football team at the local school and he loves it. He get’s to be right up front in the action and get’s to participate in the practices and interact with the players on a daily basis. Besides doing that he is a big ESPN fan and watches every sport imaginable. So needless to say if I care of not, I get score updates on pretty much any game that is currently on.  Read more
