I am a lover of my husband, adorable children, and last but not least food. I first started baking when I was just a little girl. My mom always had an amazing home-cooked meal on the table and she always encouraged me to help. Much of what I know has come from watching her in the kitchen. I used to love to pretend I owned a restaurant and cook things up for my siblings and their friends. Not much has changed :) Now my sweet husband and kids get to be my taste testers. I love exploring new ingredients and am always looking for the best of the best when it comes to recipes. I hope you enjoy the site as much as I do. Through this blog I will share just a few of my favorite things- my passion for child development, my wonderful family, and my love for food :) Happy blogging!

Food Craving #2: Delicious Greek Pastitsio {Casserole-Style}

So I feel a casserole kick coming.... Not a huge fan of casseroles. I have a few I can name on one hand that I actually love... I would love for you all to share your favorites with me. Especially with fall coming. Something about casseroles and comfort food.... and my lack of time and energy... :) Here is a casserole recipe that I do LOVE. It comes from Mel at melskitchencafe.com. She has amazing recipes. Made this for a freezer meal exchange once and it was hit and also froze great. Enjoy!

World's Best Lasagna

One of the worst things about being pregnant is that by the time you are done making dinner, you no longer want whatever you thought sounded okay before..... I can't say that I have food "cravings" when I am pregnant. I have more foods I can "tolerate" when I am pregnant. Each pregnancy has varied with my list of food tolerations. And then there are the foods I DESPISE when I am pregnant. This list has also varied, but is always very long... For the sake of sounding appetizing, which ALL recipes I post ARE (or I would not dare post them...) I will label them food cravings rather than tolerations... because that just sounds bad. So for Food craving #1 I have this amazing lasagna. Healthy? No. Delicious? Yes. I hope you enjoy. Super super yummy. Flint doesn't care for ricotta, so we used cottage cheese. I am still pregnant and lazy, so I am posting the link :)
