October 10, 2013 duchessoffork 1

Oh goodness. I blinked and here it is October 10th. I unintentionally skipped days 8 and 9. Maybe I’ll make them up. Probably not. Hey, such is life. I’m loving this 31 Days series, but I won’t let it tie me down! Each Thursday I give my pantry and freezer a …

October 8, 2013 duchessoffork 2

I jumped aboard the Baby Led Weaning band wagon when Julia was about 7 months old and never looked back. I wrote all about our experience here. Basically, it’s just the idea that by 6 months of age, kids can begin experimenting with “real” food instead of pu …

The other day I posted a few kid-friendly Pinterest food ideas that I want to make this month. I’m wasting no time…I brought one of them to life at the breakfast table just a few days ago. If you’ve got a banana, pretzels, and raisins on hand, go ahead and m …

October 6, 2013 duchessoffork 2

Eating has become a major battle with Julia recently. She wants to snack all day, then refuses a real meal. I’ve been racking my brain at ways to get her interested in food again (this child used to eat everything under the sun), so I decided to try out some cookie cutt …

Day 4 {Simple Salsa Chicken}

October 4, 2013 duchessoffork 3

As much as I love having Julia “help” me cook, sometimes I just need to get in the kitchen and get down to business. As many of you know, it can be hard to get dinner on the table with a crying baby and a toddler who is into EVERY.SINGLE.THING. The other night I t …

October 2, 2013 duchessoffork 7

It’s Day 2 of 31 Days of Cooking with my Kids and I’m bringing you a simple and tasty fall treat. Julia loves getting in the kitchen with me. Any time I stand at the island, she asks me to pull a chair up for her to stand on. Some days she’s really intereste …

I’ve loved reading everyone’s Five on Friday posts, so I thought I’d join in for the first time. ONE My father-in-law has leukemia and was hospitalized this week with pneumonia. It’s his second bout of pneumonia this summer. We’re not used to him …
