Colleen’s Lasagna

Returning from the hospital with a new baby can be overwhelming, especially with older kids at home. Evie and Mack have been very good with little Vivian, but its still my job to meet their needs and take good care of them even though some moments I just want to lay in bed and take […]


“Winter” in Chicago

Today was another beautiful summer-like day in Chicago.  With temperatures in the 80’s (!!) and no clouds in the sky, it was hard to believe that the official season is still winter.  Like most Chicagoans, we took full advantage of the perfect weather and spent a good part of the day outdoors.  I packed a […]


Ladies Who Brunch

Some of the ladies in my family gathered this morning for an informal brunch at my Aunt Margie’s house.  It was a celebration for many reasons: the end of winter, St. Patrick’s Day, the return of my mom and grandma who had been out of town for a few months, the two new babies my […]


Chocolate-Banana-Spinach Smoothie

Most mornings the kids and I start the day with a blueberry-spinach smoothie.  We all love it and it is super healthy, but sometimes I feel like changing the routine a bit.  When we’re not in the mood for homemade pancakes or steel cut oatmeal, I will try a new smoothie recipe.  Yesterday I decided […]


Homemade Cherry Muffins

Yesterday while Mack napped and Chris worked on his computer, Evie and I ran some errands around our neighborhood.  One of the best things about living in the middle of a big city is that everything we could possibly need is within a 10 minute walk of our home.  Evie and I picked up some […]


My Favorite Lunch

Today I enjoyed one of my absolute favorite salads for lunch.  The ingredient list is short and simple, and most of the items are easy to keep on-hand all the time.  My favorite ingredient is the chick peas.  I buy a pound of dried organic chick peas for less than $2, but after I cook […]


Homemade Banana Cake – Just Because!

We’ve been keeping an eye on our spending the past few months, so weekends for us have been kinda quiet.  To make Saturday evening a little more special I employed Evie and Mack in the kitchen to help me bake a special dessert.  With a bunch of brown bananas sitting on the counter top, I […]


Chia-Raspberry Pudding

I wrote about chia seeds a few months ago, and ever since I’ve been having fun trying out new uses for them in the kitchen.  I saw a recipe in a recent issue of Food & Wine magazine for a chia “pudding”, and it seemed easy, interesting and healthy.  The magazine recipe called for almond […]


Homemade Chicken Pot Pie

Growing up, I never once had pot pie for dinner.  I seem to remember my mom recalling horror stories of her childhood: forced to sit at the dining table for hours until the pot pie she absolutely detested was eaten.  She hated it as a child, and so she never served it to her children. […]


Valentine’s Day Pancakes

Happy Valentine’s Day! To start this lovely day off right, I made a batch of homemade pancakes.  To the batter I added mashed fresh raspberries and red-&-pink M&Ms, and I topped them off with homemade yogurt and pure maple syrup. Making pancakes from scratch doesn’t take much more time than a box mix, and homemade […]
