    Jam-Filled Hamantaschen Cookies

    I’ve wanted to do a food blog post for a while. Recently, I’ve been brushing up my kitchen skills and while I’m not ALL that crazy about cooking/baking, I do like the products. XD My parents were out of town last week and I figured that would be the perfect opportunity to make something and bring up my photography lights and tripod without too much of a commotion. (Besides, then my brother and I could eat all the cookies and we didn’t have to share!)

    Authentic Kaese Spaetzle

    authentic_german_kaese_spaetzle

    I have a rather interesting family background. My father is Canadian, and my mom is part English, part German with Hungarian, Scottish, and a bunch of other stuff thrown in. Mostly just English and German. There’s one thing that we carry from the German side, and that’s the food. Our favorite dish is kaese spaetzle – sort of like the German form of macaroni and cheese.  It starts with a homemade noodle.

    Orange Cream Smoothie

    Sweet and creamy, yet tangy and delicious. A purrfect combination of orange and vanilla.

    Hey y’all! I’m sure you were wondering what happened to my recipes! The answer is that I haven’t really been baking or cooking a lot recently. I’ve been busy! And unfortunately, we had a “mold incident” (cue the scary music) with our blender, so I hadn’t made smoothies for absolutely forever! My mom finally bought a Magic Bullet just a few days ago. I don’t like it as much as the Ninja…don’t think it’s as powerful, but it is a blender and at least I can make smoothies again!

    Breakfast Plan

    I’ve been pretty bad about making breakfast recently. Junior got tired of what I was making and started complaining, so I told him he could eat cold cereal this past week. That’s given me a bit of a break and I have come up with a breakfast plan. I decided to share it here and add hyperlinks to recipes!

    Easy, Healthy Breakfast Muesli

    IMG_9855Muesli is definitely a favorite breakfast item in our house. It has gone from a long, overnight process to a quick stir of a few ingredients. However, it all tastes just about the same, either way. This is the short process recipe and is very easy to make. It is full of protein and enzymes from the yogurt, so it is very healthy for you!
