We’ve all had one.  One of those days where nothing goes our way and all we really want to do is grab a spoon and pint of ice cream and tell the world to take a number.

Alexander has had one of those days.  It starts out with gum in his hair, and just gets worse from there.  And when he attempts to get a little sympathy from his family, he doesn’t find anyone to commiserate with him.  Soon, though, each member of Alexander’s family finds themselves struggling with their own terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day.

Crustless Quiche Recipe

In the movie, Alexander’s father Ben serves up a crustless quiche recipe for his family.  I think you’ll find this recipe so easy that even if you’re having a horrible day and have little time (or patience) to put dinner on the table, that you’ll be able to pull it off without much trouble.

I received a prize pack in order to create back to school lunchbox ideas. All thoughts and words are my own.

Kids around the country are heading back to school, triggering the question of “what can I pack for lunch?”  Of course there’s the old stand-by, the sandwich.  It’s a classic for a reason: portable, easy to eat, easy to customize.

Back to School Lunchbox Ideas with an Easy Quesadilla Recipe

But why not send them back this year with something new?  Recently I was challenged by the folks at Azteca to come up with easy back to school lunchbox ideas using their tortillas.  While there are a number of great things I already make that use tortillas, I had to really think about what would be a good lunchbox fit.

I’m really not sure how I would make it through the day without my morning cup of coffee.  Partly because of the caffeine pick-me-up, and partly because it’s just a nice way to start the day with a couple of quiet minutes.

Morning Coffee Moment with Chocolate Caramel Muffins #IDelight

August is National Coffee Month and I thought it only appropriate to celebrate with some tasty muffins that you can indulge in while you drink your coffee.  They even have a little coffee creamer in them for some extra flavor, so it’s kind of like celebrating twice. Continue reading »

We have been seriously enjoying the beautiful summer weather over the last few weeks.  Pool time, playing in the backyard, trips to the park and zoo.  We even managed to sneak in a couple of cookouts at my inlaws’ house.  And of course a little vacation fun, with a couple of day trips and weekend overnights!

Enjoying the Summer Weather! #IDelight

In between all of our events, we’ve made time for some tasty summer treats, too.  Anything cool and refreshing has topped our list – from fresh fruit to popsicles to ice cream and everything in between.  One recipe that seems to have pleased everyone especially are the Almond Joy Pudding Parfaits I’ve been making.

Growing up my Mom always made some really yummy meatballs.  They were served up at most family potlucks or gatherings and often disappeared faster than anything else.  I know they were certainly one of my favorite things offered.

She called them German Meatballs, but I’m not sure where she got the name from.  To me, they’re much more like a Sweet and Sour meatball, so that’s what I’m sharing them with you all as.  The only thing you’ll really care about calling them, is delicious.
