Don’t let the title fool you. This dish can be as spicy or as mild as you like. Also? You can totally turn it into a vegetarian or vegan dish. It is a bastardization of a recipe I found online, the original recipe can be found here but here is what I did:
So it’s raining.
Of course that nullifies any and all plans of outside play I had come up with a few weeks ago when I realized how quickly Olivia’s preschool break would be upon us. Granted, she’s only gone 9-12 hours a week, but I wanted to fill our time with fun [...]
Yesterday I decided to finally get my butt into gear and help the girls make Christmas tree ornaments. My original plan was to have Olivia make two for her teachers and a card. We had already given money towards the class gift, but thought it would be nice to give them something homemade by [...]
Ooh, look, a recipe for you. I haven’t posted one in awhile, and I realized, as I was making them last night, I had never posted this particular one.
I didn’t realize until AFTER I had made them that I hadn’t done all of this, so I was not taking photos of the step-by-step, [...]
We threw Olivia a Star Wars themed birthday party.
And it was awesome.
Bill and I were able to construct a passable R2D2 cake which Olivia LOVED. I made a few mistakes in the construction of the droid, things that I hope I can correct next time around. Always cut the shape the cake [...]
As I was perusing the interwebs, I saw an article about how to make your own twix bar. I was intrigued, and bookmarked it for future reference (since, I don’t have the ingredients to make them currently). However, it made me crave a twix bar. (Hello PMS!)
I looked over at Bill and said [...]
So, three weeks ago we had Sophia’s second birthday party and celebrated Yo Gabba Gabba style. She had a blast and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves.
Here is our Yo Gabba Gabba decorated patio. All of my decorations were printed from my computer, and handmade. Nothing fancy, but helped save [...]
My newest quest is to eschew all store-bought breakfast items (just things like toaster pastries, cereal bars and granola bars–I still love a bowl of cereal!) and make my own. My reasons for this are that the girls LOVE that kind of stuff, but, because of my desire to give them healthy alternatives it [...]
I became obsessed with Starbucks’ Chocolate Chip Banana Bread.
So, in order to avoid going into massive debt, I researched and found a recipe.
Of course, as I do with every recipe, I changed some stuff around. Instead of a cup of white sugar, I used 3/4 a cup of brown sugar, and [...]
One of my favorite things to do with Olivia and Sophia is to bake cookies. It is probably the messiest project we take on (aside from finger painting), but they get such a kick out of being able to eat their creations, that I can’t refuse a request to bake.
Every time Olivia finds [...]
