Kitchiri with Roasted Broccoli

This is one of my favorite meals.  I should say that this is what a lot of my meals look like.  I quite often cook up some kind of rice-and-beans type dish to keep in the fridge and reheat as needed for weekday lunches for the kids and myself and then I roast some veggies […]

Cherry Brown Rice Pudding

This was one of those posts that I was just going to forget about.  The pictures aren’t that exciting, in fact I think they’re kind of bland.  But at the same time, I’m a huge fan of brown rice pudding and this was definitely delicious and not bland at all.  I said it last time […]

I love one pot meals.  While this isn’t totally a one pot meal as you have to cook the rice and beans… it can be if you’re using leftovers that are already cooked and waiting in the fridge.  I don’t know what it is, one pot meals aren’t always that much easier, but there’s something […]

Up until Tuesday we were a one car family.  It never really bothered me much.  I don’t mind scheduling things for one day when we can drop my husband off at work and take the car for the day, and even that was a rare occurrence.  There really isn’t anything that exciting going on in […]
