Who Dey!

Today Marty, the boys and I had the opportunity to see the Bengals take down the Kansas City Chiefs, in person at Paul Brown Stadium. The game was amazing (OK….they could have played better) and the Bengals won, making them the AFC North Champions!

Just Call Me the Soup Natzi

So tonight for dinner Marty & I decided to tackle some of the leftovers from the holidays. Among them was Marty’s delicious white chicken chili.  Too spicy for the children, I found a can of Campbell’s Tomato Bisque in the cupboard that my Mother-in-law had purchased and decided to make it for the boys. Now, [...]

Ronzoni Smart Taste Pasta

Ronzoni Smart Taste Pasta

I wouldn’t say that my boys are “picky” eaters, but they are they kind of kids that I would call “particular” when it comes to what they eat.  A good example would be with spaghetti. I can get them to eat traditional spaghetti, but when I tried to incorporate whole wheat spaghetti noodles a while [...]

My Chili Brings All the Moms to the Yard
