Chia Pudding – your new favorite breakfast

I decided to embark on a 30 day detox to begin the year 2017.   I decided to do this for a couple of reasons. I’m a sugar addict.  I’m a coffee addict.  I wanted to see if I would feel better because that’s what I read I wanted to see if I could actually…

Christmas Traditions: Cinnamon Roll Edition

I am a sucker for Christmas traditions.  So I thought I’d share one of ours with you.  Because I steal others traditions from their blogs sometimes. We’re starting off with cinnamon roll making with Bethany. I have a short cut cinnamon roll I make all year long.  But that’s not this one.  Now we didn’t…

I learned something early in my exploratory cooking career.  And I have to share it with you.  Are you ready? Homemade is always better.  And it’s not as hard or laborious as you think. I grew up on canned biscuits.  (No offense mom).  And they were good.  And full of all kinds of who knows…

Crepes

I get on these kicks.  Where I get something in my head, and then I just need to do it.  Or eat it. Or say it.  Crepes are my new kick.  They are so light that you really feel like your just having a little snack.  And they are versatile!  Need something savory?  Throw some…

JFS in the kitchen: The breakfast with no name

I am a morning person.  I love everything about it.  I love the idea that I have a clean slate of a day.  I love that the sun gives us all a glimpse of it with a dimly lit horizon.  I love being up before anyone else and enjoying the quiet.  I love hearing my…
