What is with KID’s MENUS?

What is with the kid’s menu at restaurants? Why are the options always chicken fingers, pizza, or butter soaked white pasta topped with cheese? And sugar, sugar, sugar? Why do restaurant chains believe that children have no taste buds? Or sense of adventure? Listen, my kids LOVE the kids menu. They love grilled cheese and […]

Chocolate Hemp Butter

Chocolate for Breakfast. Yah, you read that right! YES PLEASE. You know that chocolate spread you see on TV that claims to be just full of milk and nuts and oh-so-healthy for you as part of a balanced breakfast? It’s malarky. Just saying.

I’m sort of obsessed with veggie burgers. I’m constantly trying new recipes, and sifting through cookbooks to find a tried-and-true recipe. I have found some that I absolutely LOVE, but my husband is not a big fan. And he’s got to like them because what’s the point in making a veggie burger only one person in the […]
