We have some busy mornings during the week in our household. Whether it's preschool, scheduled activities, play dates, or just running errands, it is nice to have a go-to breakfast to feed the kids when we're running low on time.
Let's be honest here. My interest in March Madness is solely in the food. I currently live in Germany and having a basketball viewing party just wouldn't fly. I can imagine it now: "March Madness? Who is mad and why? Why have a party for this?" But that's all right. I can make my party food and eat it myself! More for me.
Back when Georgetown had a chance at winning the NCAA tournament, my very fun office had lunch at a local sports bar to watch them play. Someone ordered cheese sticks, which turned out to be mozzarella sticks in spring roll wrappers. I was inspired! My wonton version with marinara dipping sauce is fantastic and crave-worthy. Five people wolfed down this plate in record time!
Are you ready for the Final Four? Let's get ready to ruuuumble!
Okay, I must admit: I'm not all that into basketball. But I am into any excuse for game-day food. I'm also not into toiling away in the kitchen while everyone else snacks happily in front of the TV.

As a big foodie, I think the madness should not only be on the basketball court but also in your kitchen! This is a perfect time to use your culinary creativity to surprise your guests.
The older I get, the more I see that life is about journeys and not destinations. While walking our paths up and down through many seasonal changes, we say “good bye” to a lot of the people who we love. Luckily, we often see them again at a new one of life’s cross-roads. Last week I had the surprising pleasure to reconnect with some of my childhood friends from 30 years ago. Getting back in touch with them felt like opening a gift box filled with favorite childhood collections that I had forgotten about....more
It's an update of sorts, both food/kid related, and kid/Halloween related. Either way, I guess I'm covering an update for each kid so it's all good! Except I'll apologize now (again, and again) for my shoddy sewing (couldn't sew a straight line even with the fanciest Project Runway machine), and my up-close pics!...more
I have to admit, I was suppose to prepare spicy chicken fingers but instead of taken a batch of chicken breasts out of the freezer I took pork. So as an alternative I have been preparing spicy pork fingers ;-).
