Creamy Green Chile Chicken Burritos

January 18, 2013 duchessoffork 2

My mother-in-law makes the best casserole type dishes. They’re usually ooey and gooey and not at all healthy, but they sure taste good! One of my very favorites is her creamy green chile burritos. I’ve put my own spin on them to slim them down just a bit. I love m …

January 16, 2013 duchessoffork 43

We’ve been in the new house for nearly three weeks now and we seem to be settling in pretty well. Not everything is 100% unpacked and decorated, but it’s good enough for now. This weekend I managed to snap some photos of the house, so I thought I’d take you …

How far along? 30 weeks Size of baby: The size of a head of cabbage Total weight gain: +19 pounds. Somehow I’ve only managed to gain two pounds in the last two months. I really don’t know how that’s possible! I guess you burn a lot of calories while moving a …

Julia’s Cubby System

January 8, 2013 duchessoffork 3

As kids get older, they begin to accumulate more and more stuff. For a while now I’ve wanted a good quality storage system for Julia’s books and toys. I didn’t want to impulsively buy something cheap that would break in a year. I wanted something that will l …

Easy Olive & Spinach Pasta Salad

January 7, 2013 duchessoffork 3

I like to consider myself the Pantry Princess. I’m usually pretty good at coming up with a delicious meal or snack out of things I already have on hand. I try my best to only go to the grocery store once a week (it cuts down on spending, folks), so if something comes up …

Just wanted to check in and let you know I’m still here! We moved last Friday and it has been quite the whirlwind ever since. I can’t stand living among boxes, so we’re already about 85% unpacked. The Duke and I have been working like dogs the past few days …
