Southwest Sauce over Spaghetti


It is tax season in our house. Well, the last of two tax seasons actually. I prepare personal income taxes from February through April and then my partner works in a State Tax Department so her busy season is mid-August through early December. What that basically means is she gets up and arrives at work…

Columbia Harbour House


Whenever we are in the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World we plan to eat at Columbia Harbour House. During the off hours it generally is not as crowded as some other restaurant and if you are lucky you can get a table upstairs overlooking Liberty Square. The day we were here it was a…

Creamy Stove Top Pesto Macaroni and Cheese


I am looking for the quick and easy dinners right now. As we have two weeks left before heading back to school we are trying to cram every last minute of fun we can into summer. I have been forgetting about dinner until 30 minutes prior to when my kids want to eat, which is…

Slow Cooker Vegetarian Chili over Baked Potatoes


The other day my son and I went out to lunch downtown at The Food District as a special treat. He chose Macaroni and Cheese with Crab and Lobster and I chose the OB Glad Foccacia Pizza. My pizza was bacon, sausage, pepperoni, onion and tomatoes on foccacia bread. Both dishes were amazing! I was…

Vegetarian Shepherds Pie


As much as I find my son’s decision to become a vegetarian overwhelming to my menu planning and cooking in the past three weeks I think I have eaten more vegetables than I have in the past year. I have noticed that all of us are eating less processed foods and less sugary foods even…

Asian Garlic Tofu Stir Fry over Chow Mein Noodles


I am just learning to cook with tofu. My son hates the taste of soy but I thought if I could mask it enough he may change his mind. He also does not care for the mushy texture so I bought extra firm tofu hoping that it would hold up enough for him to like….

Carrot Cake Cookie – The Writer’s Shop


. The Writer’s Shop can be easy to overlook on your way to the Streets of America or Star Tours but this little shop sells one of my most favorite sweet treats in Disney’s Hollywood Studios and definitely a top 5 snack in all of Walt Disney World. Half of a Carrot Cake Cookie. The…

Falafel with Tzatziki


My family LOVES garlic. We go through at least 1 jar of minced garlic and 1 jar of powdered garlic a month. Italian food, Greek food and Chinese food are always at the top of our go to list for menu items. I was searching through Pinterest to find something to make with the large…

Faux General Tso’s with Chickpeas


Chinese food is the one thing I know I like with vegetables. I love the sauces and will even eat what I consider “questionable” vegetables if they have enough delicious sauce on them. I have to be careful though because I don’t want to burn my family out on one type of food I am…

Poutine


Poutine is one of those foods that either you know what it is or you don’t and you either love it or you think it is just weird. Looking at all the pieces separately each piece is good. Fresh cheese curd that is so fresh it still squeaks as you chew? Deliciously salty and full…
