Football Party Foods


Football is coming to an end soon. Many will be celebrating with Super Bowl parties. I pulled together a few of our favorite party dishes that may be a bit different from ordinary football food. Starting with a salad bar.  Think about all the heavy food that is normally served at a Super Bowl party….

About Us


One of the first dishes we made was Moo Goo Gai Pan. Now, that I have time to look back over our journey I realize what we have done.  Our children are now 19 (eek!) and 16. They were 10 and 7 when we started this journey. My son is Autistic and was on the…

Top 5 Recipes for 2019 on What’s for Dinner Moms?


Many of the top recipes are from quite awhile ago on my blog. It is funny going back and looking at the pictures and realizing how much they need updating and I should start remaking some of these as my kids really don’t remember some of them. As I try to make something new every…

Word of the Year for 2020


Every year I choose a word to focus my intents for the year rather than make resolutions. For 2019 my word was health. It was a good word for me too as my health struggled a bit and I ended up taking steps to improve it. I am now in physical therapy working on keeping…

Food Trends for 2020


Every year I review lots of research that tries to predict what will be the food trends for 2020. Last year’s predictions can be seen here (click for link to blog post). How did I do? This year trends seem to be a continuation of many of last years trends. Here is what I saw…

Christmas with Family


I wasn’t feeling the Christmas spirit this year but as Christmas Eve and Christmas Day went on it has gotten better. We traveled to North Carolina this year to be with my parents. Since my Dad has been slowly declining we try to spend at least 3-4 weeks a year visiting them. It is difficult…

Merry Christmas to All!


I will admit that this Christmas season has been tough for us. I don’t know if it is the state of the US government, the place we are in our lives, or just life in general but we struggled this year with the Christmas spirit. Normally my house is decorated by November 15th and I…

A Delicious Trip to Louisville, Kentucky


I fully intended to post this yesterday but I was so tired after the weekend. I couldn’t even get it done. The Mid_America Oireachtas was this past weekend. We left on Thanksgiving morning to travel to Louisville, Kentucky. The Irish Dance Regionals are held each year over the weekend immediately following Thanksgiving. Imagine thousands of…

Potato Scramble Bowl with Variations


I hope you can all be a bit patient with me the next few weeks. I knocked my computer off my desk the other day and broke the point where it connects to the charger. So, until I can see if they can fix it I am learning to post on my phone and try…

Happy Halloween!


Happy Halloween! Chances are if you celebrate Halloween by taking your own children out trick-or-treating or just by passing out candy or treats to those that come to your house you may be having a dinner similar to the above. Pizza, spaghetti and sauce, or soup and sandwiches seem to be the dinners most are…

Popcorn Mix Ins: One of Those Days


We have been so busy lately that it feels like I have not been able to connect as much as I want to with my children. Last night after a meeting that ended about 7 pm I decided to see if my son was free to do something fun (and for me unusual). I called…
