Homemade Granola

This summer we’ve spent a lot of time together exploring and baking. One of our favorite things to make is granola. Much of the store-bought allergy friendly versions have sugar as the first or second ingredient. I’ve been working on this recipe a while and now feel it is ready to share. I will say…

Hangry Girl Bisque

Saturday Mornings

Saturday mornings when I was growing up we went shopping. We may have had a soccer game or basketball game but we always ended up shopping for groceries and clothes at Seessel’s, Easyway, Goldsmith’s and Dillard’s followed by a treat at La Baguette. I have fond memories of those days but choose a slower paced…

Mexican Chicken Soup with Black beans & Rice

When a cold snap reminds you that it’s not quite Spring it’s time for a pot of soup. After being at a swim meet I really didn’t think ahead much for dinner. I grabbed a whole chicken from the frig, veggies in the crisper, beans and tomatoes from the pantry. We were so hungry it…

Cafe and {Canned} Chili

She usually writes the menus and serves the meals. While this is fun we are teaching her manners, how to pay the bill, and…

Super Simple Allergy Friendly Potato Soup

Church, Sunday naps, Mary Poppins, and yummy soup refreshed us this February day. I love potato soup and growing up loved Huey’s potato soup until we realized I couldn’t eat it due to the return of my infant allergies. I learned to replicate the thick creamy soup by puréeing half of the potatoes broth mixture…
