It’s the first day of spring as I’m writing to you now, and even though it’s still brisk and blustery out there, I thought maybe it was appropriate to start thinking about lighter foods for warmer months. Eventually temperatures will rise, and so will hemlines, and no one wants to walk around looking like all they did was put back beef stew and mashed potatoes all winter long. Besides, I’m on a sugar bender from celebrating National Chocolate Week for the past four days. Let’s talk lighter eating.
Here are three kid tested, mom approved recipes to help you make the most of this week’s Sendik’s sale ad — two for dinner, one for the lunchbox (or yourself, I’ll never tell).
Last Friday night we played mixed doubles paddle with friends and had an Irish-themed spread together afterward. Cocktails with an Irish spin were also flowing, and as a consequence, my game deteriorated early on in the evening. It was a sad state of affairs, since I’ve never had much of a game to begin with. Luckily for me, the Husband didn’t seem to mind covering most of the court (because clearly his Black & Tan wasn’t as large as mine was, ahem). Read the rest of this entry »
Hi everyone and welcome to this week’s edition of Enjoy Sendik’s All Week, where I have three great dishes for you whose main ingredients are on sale in this week’s Sendik’s ad.
Browned Butter Gnocchi with Broccoli and Pine Nuts might sound like a diet killer, but the recipe actually comes from Cooking Light. It’s easy like Sunday morning and a great way to get picky punks to cheerfully (you heard right) gobble down tons of a an awesome green veggie.

In 1848, ancestors of Saxon Creamery from Saxony, Germany, sailed across the ocean in search of land and opportunity. Their formidable journey brought them to the rich lakeshore soils of Manitowoc County. On these fertile soils began the family legacy of dairy farming. Cattle grazing on lush spring, summer and autumn grasses produced more milk than the family needed. By 1870, they were making cheese to preserve and share their milk. Read the rest of this entry »
Flatbread pizza recipes have consumed me lately and as a consequence, I’ve consumed a lot of flatbread pizzas. I recently discovered lavash (I mean, I didn’t personally discover it. I found out about it is what I should’ve said) and I’ve been using it like crazy when it comes to entertaining and/or feeding friends. I’ve made about five different versions of these nifty little pizzas in the past few weeks and they’ve all gone over so well, I thought I’d share one of my favorites with you today.

Here are two kid friendly, mom approved recipes to help you make the most of this week’s Sendik’s sale ad. The third recommended recipe is strictly approved by yours truly, because my DamKids most definitely did not put their stamp on it. Maybe yours will. Personally, I happen to love Tuna & Shells and I don’t mind who knows it. The punks had better stay on their toes this week or that’s what they’ll be finding on their dinner plates. ; ) Read the rest of this entry »
