Pizza update!

Back when I blogged about pizza I searched for a long time on the Flying Pie website for their instructions on how to make really great pizza at home. I finally found it here! I don't know if they moved it around on their site or what, but it was not where I remembered it being. Or perhaps, the thought of delicious pizza has clouded my memory. It doesn't really matter, just that I found it!

My kids are on a year-round school schedule. There are pros and cons to this type of calender. One of the cons in my opinion is it often makes more work for me in the kitchen, trying to decide what to feed everyone three times a day. I can repeat things more often when its just the little ones at home but the bigger kids like more variety.  read more »

Sneaky sneaky

Like most moms I am always trying to get my kids to eat more vegetables. Last summer when I was overrun with summer squash I finely shredded a lot and froze it in bags. I have discovered that I can add the finely shredded squash to spaghetti sauce and the kids don't even notice! It looks like grated parmesan cheese and is undetectable in taste or texture. Yay for sneaky vegetables!

Would you like a cavity with that?

One of my favorite ways to make rice krispy treats is to use Cocoa Pebbles cereal instead. The other day after making some, Frugaldad suggested "Fruity Pebbles with some of those colored marshmallows mixed in right at the end so they don't melt." I happened to be going to the store the next day and Fruity Pebbles were on sale so a few nights later (when the cocoa version was gone) I made up a batch of what have been affectionately dubbed "Atomic Sugar Bombs."
