Mini Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

by RealMomofNJ on July 11, 2013 in Adult Food, Baby Food, Food & Recipes

Every so often an occasion arises for me to send some food into day care. It’s always either for one of the RealKid’s birthdays, or a holiday gathering. I don’t want to bring cupcakes because A) it’s unoriginal, B) I want to give the kids the chance to have something they wouldn’t otherwise have and C) it’s just more…

You Can Cook For Your Family. No Really, You Can

by RealMomofNJ on May 29, 2013 in Food & Recipes, Tips

RealDad sent me an article recently that I could’ve written myself:  You’ll Gladly Die for Your Children; Why Won’t You Cook for Them? I can’t stop thinking about it.

This article summarized much of what I think about cooking for my family and about the American views of food and cooking. It brings up some superior points and basically answers its…

Thank You! Mac & Cheese Recipe

by RealMomofNJ on April 10, 2013 in Adult Food, Baby Food, Food & Recipes

Are you ready for a mac & cheese recipe to rock your world? Yeah you are.

So, you know I cook from scratch, and you probably know that I will do anything—ANYTHING—that Alton Brown tells me to do. Well, long ago on his cooking/educational show, Good Eats, he told me that it is just as easy to make real mac &…

Why I Let My Kids Eat Kids’ Menu JUNK

by RealMomofNJ on April 04, 2013 in Food & Recipes

Considering how hardcore I am about eating healthy and withholding junk food from my kids, you’ll probably be surprised to hear that when we go out to eat, I will let the RealKids eat off of the kids’ menu.

I know. Talk about unhealthy food. The kids’ menu is universally craptastic. Mac & cheese (sometimes from a box), chicken fingers,…

No Cook, No Bath Tuesday Addenda

by RealMomofNJ on April 02, 2013 in Food & Recipes, Schedules, Tips

I’ve been doing No Cook, No Bath Tuesdays for awhile now, and I have to say, I love it. When I can pull it off 100%. It makes a big difference in my happiness on Tuesdays. But after almost 6 months of doing it, two very important addenda needed to be added because I noticed there were still plenty…

Slow Cooker Black Bean Soup

by RealMomofNJ on March 18, 2013 in Adult Food, Baby Food, Food & Recipes

RealDad hates beans (totally ridiculous, I know). I happen to love them, but I don’t make a lot of bean soups or dishes because of him. So I take advantage of when he travels and make at least one bean-riffic meal. Most recently that meal was black bean soup.

Black bean soup is delicious already, but this one is even…

The Best Damn Turkey Meatballs You’ll Ever Eat

by RealMomofNJ on February 27, 2013 in Food & Recipes

My title is not an overpromise. These are the best, healthiest meatballs I’ve ever eaten. Of course they are, they’re Ellie Krieger’s. She’s my healthy-cooking hero.

Anyway, I made these this week for No-Cook, No-Bath Tuesday this week. I make these frequently, actually, because they’re so good. They are super flavorful and super healthy compared to traditional meatballs, which…
