easy weeknight lemon pepper salmon


I don’t know about your house, but dinner time here can sure be hectic.  With three little kids, someone is sure to get hangry (aka hungry and angry) during that hour or so before dinnertime.  And maybe that someone can be me… I am not perfect.  When we need dinner fast, with little prep and […]

cardamom pannekoeken


I love breakfast on the weekends.  Usually I make something more labor intensive that I think everyone in the house will enjoy.  Kind of a special treat.  Omelets, crepes and waffles are some that come to mind.  Other times I like to try new recipes.  I’m so thankful when my Secret Recipe Club assignment comes […]
