I am a stay-at-home mom with a 3 yr old daughter (She is a GREAT eater!) and a 3 week old Preemie Boy! I am working with a tight budget, but have expensive taste in food! I rarely follow a recipe... don't like to measure! I love to read cookbooks, magazines and food blogs for new inspiration.

Roasted Carrots and Radishes

Rating: 4 stars 2
Never had a roasted radish? You must try this!! Carrots compliment the flavor well- and I don’t really care for radishes raw.

Teddy Bear Juice

Rating: 5 stars 13
A drink to help soothe sick little ones...only add honey for children over 1 year old. My daughter calls this "Teddy Bear" juice because of our honey bear. Great for a sore throat...and people who don't enjoy hot tea.

Kathleen’s Toasted Ravioli with Basil Cream Sauce

Crispy Breaded Ravioli with a rich Basil Cream Sauce...also great as an appetizer!

Sinful Sage Brown Butter Ravioli

Sage Brown Butter Sauce is earthy and rich, with very few ingredients. It is crucial not to leave the butter unattended, as the process happens quickly! Serve with fresh grated Parmesan cheese.

Dad's Magic Bar Olives

Yummy, oozing, fried green olives! A very unique appetizer that is great to have on hand in the freezer for impressing unexpected guests! Photo courtesy of Swiss Phil
