Carlifornia roll sushi bowl

This super fun family meal was a huge success around here. My 11 year old daughter ate 3 bowls and the little ones were so curious they forgot to fuss about the “green stuff”.

It is a wonderful side dish to any meat or fish but will also make… Continue reading Quick and Easy Barley Mujaddara

A list of things I want you to know: 1.My family and I are in the midst of relocating ourselves, our three children under the age of five, our clothes, our books and what is left of our peripheral nervous system. 2. We are leaving the cold, wild North, the only home my children have ever… Continue reading Slow Cooker Orange and Honey Beef stew
