Grape Focaccia

by angelika on July 1, 2011

Saturday mornings mean baking with the kids. (yes it has taken me this long to post what I did on Saturday. Crazy week!) We went to the market Saturday morning and Little Man picked out black grapes. Several pounds of them. I knew we could not eat them all before they went mushy so I […]

Blueberry Muffins

by angelika on June 11, 2011

Saturday morning means baking with my son, and today we made delicious and easy blueberry muffins. They are bursting with blueberry flavor, and have lots of whole grain flour. They come together in less than 10 minutes. Easy enough to make on a school day! I’ve tried a lot of blueberry muffin recipes in my […]

Fresh Strawberry Scones

by angelika on May 30, 2011

Little Man and I had another Saturday morning baking adventure. This week we made scones. We bought strawberries that were incredibly ripe and delicious at the local strawberry stand. Local stand you wonder? Yes! We have this wonderful farmer named Lao who sells the juiciest, freshest more flavorful strawberries you have ever tasted. He picks them […]

Sweet Potato Muffins

by angelika on May 28, 2011

Little Man and I like to spend our Saturday mornings baking something yummy. Last weekend we made these muffins. It is an adaptation of my pumpkin muffins, which is what he requested. We did not have any pumpkin on hand, but I did have some sweet potato. So sweet potato muffins were born. They are […]

Granola Bars

by angelika on April 9, 2011

Little Man and I made these granola bars yesterday, and boy were they good. I say were, as they only lasted the night! That’ll teach me to cut a recipe in half. These come together in a matter of minutes, and you can add in anything you have around. Super tasty, delicious chewy texture, and great […]

Whole Wheat Goldfish Crackers

by angelika on March 22, 2011

My kids love cheddar bunnies. All three of them. Wait you say… don’t you only have two kids? Why yes, you are right! But the biggest “kid” in my house loves the cheddar bunnies just as much, only difference is he can eat the whole box in one sitting! So when I came across the […]

Whole Wheat Pretzels

by angelika on March 10, 2011

It was our day to supply snack at preschool, and little man and I really enjoy making something together to offer his friends. One of our favorite snacks to bring is whole wheat pretzels. Our preschool is pretty strict about snack, only whole grain, no sugar, we’d appreciate it if you’d stick to organic fruits […]

Blueberry Crumb Bars

by angelika on February 6, 2011

My husband took Little Man shopping yesterday, as they often do on a Saturday morning. They went and selected our groceries for the week, stopping at 3 different stores. Apparently Costco had these giant tubs (1.5lb)  of organic blueberries for $7. (as my men remember, meaning it could have been anything from $5-$10) Little Man […]

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

by angelika on December 10, 2010

Is it too late for pumpkin? I don’t think so, it is a Thanksgiving sort of food, and we are not quite into winter yet, right?  Either way, I have several cans of pumpkin in my cabinet that were begging to be used. It was also our turn to bring snack to school in celebration […]

Root Vegetable Pot Pie with Cheddar Biscuit Crust

by angelika on December 2, 2010

The Root Vegetable Pot Pie has been the center of our Thanksgiving dinner for at least 5 years. Maybe longer. I made this dish the day before Little Man was born, and I often look back at the pictures of our last Thanksgiving as a family of two. I am huge and swollen, clearly over […]

Apple Cheddar Scones

by angelika on November 30, 2010

These are, without a doubt, the very best scones I have ever tasted. Seriously. I have already made two more batches to “test” the recipe. The combination of juicy bursts of apple with the subtle cheddar notes in a light and fluffy scone make me want to take to bed with a book and drink tea […]

Carrot Raisin Bread

by angelika on October 10, 2010

Is there anything better on a Sunday morning than a fresh baked loaf of bread smothered in farm fresh butter and cream cheese? I think not. One of my favorite weekend breads to make is a Carrot Raisin Bread that my whole family loves. This is a recipe I also send to school with Little Man when […]

Sweet Potato Pancakes

by angelika on September 12, 2010

It’s a Sunday breakfast kind of day. You know the kind…When you wake up on a Sunday morning and the sun is shining but the air is crisp. You feel well rested (as well rested as can be expected with two small kids anyway), hungry, and just a wee bit motivated to make something decadent. […]
