I am no chef – I am just a girl who loves to cook and loves to eat! I have three of the toughest little critics around who are my official tasters. My mission is to expose them to new flavors and have them eat real food, not from a box, and actually enjoy it too.

My blog is about documenting my culinary experiments with three very rambunctious and opinionated little boys. Each week I test a new dish, a new spice, or a give a twist to an old classic.  I don’t want to change the world but I do want to get my kids to eat some broccoli once in awhile.


My mother recently shared a recipe with me for my In A Pinch Series: Recipes for Busy Weeknights. It is called Girl Scout Stew. I think with a little updating it will make a wonderful recipe to hand down to the boys. But first we will have to rename it to Boy Scout Stew.
