October 27, 2014 duchessoffork 3

Our life seems to be especially chaotic lately. I’ve planned two huge events in the month of October, and we’re moving this Saturday. It’s safe to say that no two days are the same around here. Our mornings are always a scramble to get everyone fed, dressed …

My food processor is, without a shadow of a doubt, my all-time favorite kitchen gadget. I don’t think most people realize all of the ways you can use a food processor. Sure, it’s great for shredding veggies, but the mighty processor can do so much more! Before we …

October 2, 2014 duchessoffork 0

I’m not sure why I waited so long to make my own peanut butter. I’m fairly certain that our family keeps the peanut farmers of America in business. We eat more peanut butter than anyone I’ve ever seen. We put it on waffles, pancakes, crackers, spoons, finger …

My counters are cluttered. There are piles of bills, leftover GoGo Squeeze pouches, and mismatched socks as far as the eye can see. I’m honestly not even sure what material our counters are made of at this point. I haven’t seen them in ages. My living room looks l …

September 2, 2014 duchessoffork 3

These cookies are insane. Ridiculous. They’re so addicting that I made them on two separate occasions this weekend. Chocolate chip cookies. Stuffed to the max with chunks of Kit Kat bars. You’re welcome. People constantly ask me for my cookie recipe because they t …

August 19, 2014 duchessoffork 6

I have happily been a stay-at-home-mom for more than three years. I haven’t worked in a classroom since the school year ended in 2011, just a couple months before Julia was born. I have greatly enjoyed being home with my kids all of this time. We’ve created quite …
