Savoury No-Knead Bread

I’m enjoying the no-knead bread experience. It’s new to me, but it’s a lot of fun. Creating delicious bread with minimal effort, and waking up to a bowl of ready to bake dough, is perfect. I decided I wanted to make a savoury version to pair with the pasta dish I had planned this week….

Picky Eaters Smoothie With Fruits and Veggies

My two oldest children are going through a picky eating phase. One is a carnivore at the moment, and the other eats mostly pasta, crackers and yogurt. I’m sure some of you can relate. They both have a couple fruits and vegetables that they are willing to eat on occasion, but even that depends on…
