What would you say if I told you, you could eat ice cream for breakfast… would you?

IMG_1426r

If I could eat ice cream ever day I think I would.  I LOVE ice cream.  Ice Cream plain.  Ice cream with toppings.  Ice cream sundaes…

I mean it doesn’t really matter.  My favorite is chocolate with chocolate fudge.  When I was a little girl my dad used to take me and my sister at the time, to Carvel.

Do you guys remember Carvel?

Rice is such a staple with Mexican dishes.  We love eating Mexican food at home.  When I was pregnant with KK that’s all I ate was Mexican food.  I think I ate more quesadillas and fajitas during that time then in my whole life.  To this day Mexican is one of my favorite cuisines.

and Yes, it is also one of KK’s favorites also… (I guess I had something to do with that)

S’mores have got to be the quintessential dessert that screams summer. There’s just something about gathering around a campfire roasting marshmallows, telling stories, and making s’mores that just brings a smile to my face.

I can remember the first time I ever made s’mores at a campfire, it was at camp.  I was 8 years old in Miami and we did a campfire in the late afternoon.

That was so much fun….

Do you remember the first time you ever roasted marshmallows and made s’mores?

Now in these parts summer is soon coming to a close with just two weeks left before the homework, projects, and running around begins…who am I kidding the running around is already beginning this week…

Eeeekkkkkkkk!!!!!!

Chocolate Chip Sour Cream Pancakes

chocolate chip sour cream pancakes 5

Do you ever have those morning where you wake up and think to yourself “What am I going to make for breakfast this morning?”

Even though it’s summer time my husband and I really don’t have a lot of time to spend with the kids in the mornings so when the weekend rolls around I always try and make something special and quite yummy.  Pancakes are one of the many favorites in our house and I love making Buttermilk Pancakes.

Except that when I woke up I remembered oh yea that buttermilk is going to be used for a different recipe.  Of course I didn’t feel like running to the store to buy some so I made an alternative… these Chocolate Chip Sour Cream Pancakes.

IMG_1101r Hello Beautiful! IMG_1097r

I’m feeling a little emotional today.  It’s my oldest’s birthday.  That’s right Julian is 13 today.  I can officially say I have a TEENAGER!!!!

Holy %$#&!!!!!  

Where did the time go??? I know I just had to say it.  I think I’m still a little in shock.  You see in the past year so many changes have happened that it still has my head spinning.  First of all we added an addition to our family Jacob, our youngest, who is 16 months, Kayla is in double digits now, the BIG 10, and then we turn to Juju… my Pumpkin… my first born.

Juju young

In the past year this little boy has completed skyrocketed past me.  There was a time when he was smaller than me or right at the edge.  I mean I know I’m not the tallest of the bunch, with my 5 ft 2 inch self, but come on…. this boy sprouted like a weed and is now practically 5 ft 11 inches. I know!

juju and mommy young

I find myself just staring at him–watching him, wondering what he’s thinking.  You know boys, they get to the point in their life where they think they know everything and that there mom is just annoying… I guess and that they have selective hearing.

For all those mom and dads who know that I’m talking please raise your hand!!!!

YEP! You all know what I’m talking about… Read the rest of this entry »

Cinnamon Sugar French Toast Sticks

French Toast Sticks 1

What is it about french toast sticks that make you feel like a kid again? Maybe it’s the dunking part… I don’t know why it is exactly, but all I know is that when I make these crunchy sweet, full of cinnamon sugar french toast sticks I feel like I’m eight years old again when my mom would warm up those frozen french toasts sticks we would buy in the supermarket.

French Toast Sticks 3

These Cinnamon Sugar French Toast Sticks are one of my daughter’s favorite breakfast treats.  Just imagine thick slices of Texas toast dipped in an vanilla-sugar egg mixture, then pan fried until crisp and caramelized, but still keeping the inside soft and fluffy.  

After cooking they are immediately tossed in cinnamon and sugar while they are still hot.   French toast sticks that melt in your mouth really!!!! Read the rest of this entry »

Mushroom Risotto

15 Jul 2015 In: Recipes


risotto 2

Now I know that we are knee deep in summer weather, the sun is blazing, the humidity is off the rocket with no sign of cooling down happening anytime soon.  Sometimes we just need comfort food to warm our soul.

That’s how I feel when I make risotto. The creaminess of this dish is the perfect way to add comfort to any long stressful day. I remember the first time I ever tried risotto.  It was at a little restaurant in Miami called Grazie and we would go special occasions.  The food is so delicious just thinking about it makes my stomach start to grumble.  My dad had ordered their Seafood Risotto… let’s just say the moment they brought the dish to the table the smell of that dish was out of this world.  I think I jumped into the plate before my dad had a chance to.  From then on it has been my absolute favorite dish to order and make at home.

I think so many are scared to make risotto because of the amount of time it takes to make and it requires you to have patience. Funny, thing… I’m really not a patient person but in the kitchen cooking I am… weird huh! 🙂 Read the rest of this entry »
