Veggie Mac & Cheese
H-Man loved the beef casserole I made yesterday during my baby food making frenzy. Here's the recipe! Be sure to let us know if you try it and your little one loves it.
It is a scary sight in my freezer when I only have 2 cubes of homemade baby food left. I have been procrastinating restocking my freezer to watch the Superbowl, go to dinner parties, watch the Academy Awards, watch the Grammy Awards and last night to watch Revenge. It had to end after H-Man had a banana and applesauce for breakfast the second day in a row. Mommy guilt is incredibly motivating, but we’ll save that topic for another post.
When people think of Mediterranean food, they often think of healthy, fresh fare. Greek food is delicious, tasty and surprisingly easy to make at home. For some reason however, I don’t think Greek food has made its way into most kitchens in the United States as other have Mediterranean cuisines like Italian food.
Perhaps the reason Greek food is not more popular with home cooks is because the spices are a little foreign and may not be very understood.
I was asked by a MomMe in mommy and me class this week to share my recipe for the grain and veggie salad I brought to class.The first thing that you should know about me is that I do not follow recipes. My mom taught me how to cook from a young age. She would come home from work and I would sit with her in the kitchen, watching and learning what she was doing, and chatting about our days.
