This was a recipe that had foods I wasn’t sure my family would like, all put together. The Fudgelet is sometimes funny about lemon, and he hasn’t had much in the way of nuts. Then K doesn’t enjoy kale. At all. But, I also want to make sure that the Fudgelet gets a variety of foods since even if K or I don’t like something, he might. I have tried cooking regular kale for K before, but never this type and I thought it might be better for him since part of his issue with kale is the curly texture. This is smoother and seemed closer to spinach.
What do you think they thought?

I’m not sure exactly why, but one day I had it in my head that I wanted to try making lasagna from scratch…as in, the flat pasta sheets. I think part of it is how easy it is to use the new pasta making attachments I have and since the pasta sheets turn out so smooth from it, I thought it might be quite doable. I did technically skip making the sauce from scratch this time, but you could totally use homemade sauce, too. I just wanted to limit my variables slightly to see how it would go.

Here is a dish I was able to make while having to watch both kids on a weeknight. It was delicious and well-liked by everyone. K asked if we could have it again soon, so maybe on the next cold weather day. I really liked the crispy topping with the creamy mushroom sauce.
Here I am with another risotto recipe trying to convince the Fudgelet that risotto is delicious. K and I really liked this, and the Fudgelet ate it, but he was still complaining some. I don’t get it…he likes rice and sausage, he likes them together, and he likes congee which is basically a Chinese version of risotto. Oh well. Anyway, the adults loved it and he ate it regardless.

This is the first recipe I made post-Chiplet’s birth. I made it 4-5 days after he was born. The first two nights I was at the hospital, and the first night home a friend dropped off dinner. The next night we had leftovers that needed to get eaten (this recipe here) and then the next night we ate this. It was such a filling pizza that we ended up having it for dinner and lunch leftovers too.
