Waffles for Breakfast

We started our weekend off right with a fresh batch of homemade waffles this morning. While Chris and Mack were upstairs slowly waking up, Evelyn and I worked on breakfast together. I measured the ingredients and she was in charge of pouring everything into the bowl. While she made a big flour mess as she […]


Cookies for a Little Chocoholic

Little Evelyn is a total chocoholic. Just like her grandma, she needs at least a little bite of it every day in order to maintain sanity. So, when my friend Sarah over at PersonalFaves.com blogged about chocolate cookies she recently baked I knew I had to try out the recipe. Evie refused to nap this […]


Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder

Today at the farmer’s market Lane’s End Farm was selling baskets of “ugly” organic tomatoes for $1.50 per ound. While most people would look at the misshapen, bumpy, and uneven colored tomatoes with suspicion, I knew I found a little gold mine! My favorite was this two-for-one tomato that looked like a portly and friendly […]


Happy Birthday to My Homemade Father!

My family and I recently gathered to celebrate my dad’s 51st birthday. It was a perfect summer day spent in the sunshine. I only recently realized that a lot of my homemade approach to life comes from the example my dad set while I was growing up. He spent summers tending to a very large […]


Farmer’s Market Pasta

I love summer! After a morning spent at the park, I took Evelyn and Mack to the local farmer’s market. Chicago has a farmer’s market every day from May-October, so I know I can always find fresh produce and meet the people who grow it all. Today’s market was near the Museum of Contemporary Art, […]


"Free" Pizza in a Flash!

As I wrote about last week, we’re on a pretty strict budget. When we go over in one area, we have to take out of another. Usually the first thing I trim is the grocery bill. Last week I managed on just $20, and this week we’re getting by on $70 (this includes breakfasts, lunches […]


Cold Sesame Noodles

Its 3:30 in the afternoon and dinner is already made! With two little ones to care for I’ve been looking for dinner ideas that fit at least two out of the following three conditions: 1. Healthy 2. Easy to prepare and easy to clean up 3. Budget friendly Tonight’s dinner meets all three! My friend […]


Happy 2nd Birthday to Evelyn!

My little girl turned 2 this week. I have to wonder how two years have passed since she joined our family. I can’t imagine life without her now. She is so full of joy and happiness and curiosity. I am truly blessed to have such a lovely BIG girl for a daughter. To celebrate her […]


Dinner for Father’s Day

We just returned from nearly a week out east visiting my husband’s family. We spent most of today traveling so I didn’t get a chance to show Chris just how much the kids and I appreciate him. Although we didn’t get back until almost 5 pm, as a Homemade Mother I really wanted to make […]


Cheers!

My husband is out of town at a bachelor party this weekend. So, that means it’s just me at home with the two little ones. For many people this might mean a long 72+ hours, but I am perfectly content. Yes, it is a LOT of work keeping a toddler and a newborn happy, well-fed, […]
