Patriotic Trifle


As you can see, I’m on a bit of a craft hiatus. However, I’ve been trying lots of new recipes and I believe my little family is enjoying it quite a bit! Yesterday, as you know, it was Independence Day.  Hope you knew that… And if not, then What the heck’s up with that?! Anyways, I’m a bit of a trifle junkie. First step is to admit it, right? So there it is. Strung out, tweaking, straight up junkie for the trifles, yo. Ok, so maybe that “street” talk is a bit taboo for my conservative readers, but I’ve been watching AMC’s Breaking Bad. Awesome series btw! They throw around the very outdated word “yo” a lot and it tickles me really.

Veggie Meatloaf

Veggie Meatloaf (1 of 1)

This veggie meatloaf recipe was another great find from my regular online browsing for healthy but good recipes. Its pretty lean because it uses turkey and it’s packed with zucchini and peppers. The red and yellow peppers give it the most beautiful color. I’m tellin’ ya, you’ll feel led to take a picture. And Oh Lordy, the balsamic glaze is divine. It’s rich and sweet and simply freaking delicious really.  Nothing better than a relatively guilt-free meal that also makes you want seconds and even thirds. Come on, Ladies and Gents, try it! Also, recipe courtesy of Bobby Flay and The Food Network. Bobby Flay…love him!

Lemon Bars


Forget the Lemonade stand I want some Lemon Bars! Or maybe Lemonade and Lemon Bars. Uh, OK maybe there is such a thing as too much lemon. Gasp, I don’t know I love lemon everything…the above mentioned, lemon cookies, lemon pie, lemon water, lemony hummus, big bite of lemon wedge! Yums! I’ve had this recipe for a while now and can not remember where I got it from. Spring and summer always reminds me of it and thus begins the struggle not to make it every weekend. It’s so gooey and yet crumbly…sweet and yet tart. If you guys try it, let me know what you think!

PB&Banana Rounds


This is what I will call a Make-It-Happen Toddlers Hungry and It’s very Picky. Let’s see…she likes bananas and peanut butter. I’ve heard of peanut butter banana sandwiches, buuuuuut no bread. Well I have these tortillas… Aha! Spread on the peanut butter, roll that sucker up, and throw on some carrots and grapes for variety and color. Kids love color. Also, slice it up. Kids love finger foods. It was a success with Little Miss, and it was so good I made myself a plate. Yum! I think this set me on a new online quest to find out what other moms have come up with in desperate times. I’ll let you guys know what comes of it.
