St. Josemaria Escriva- A Patron of our Family

  St. Josemaria Escriva’s feast day is a very special day for our family! In fact, someone once told me it sounded to her like he must be looking out for our family, so he has sort of become a family patron. She seemed to think that, even though we often seek out certain saints… Read More St. Josemaria Escriva- A Patron of our Family

Chive and Onion Haddock with asparagus

Chive and onion haddock, aka, one of my all-time favorite meals. It’s creamy and crunchy and flavorful. Plus it’s super easy and can be made ahead of time. But that’s not all! It’s also made using just one dish (and a cutting board). I even line the dish with aluminum foil so clean up is… Read More Chive and Onion Haddock with asparagus

Salmon in Sunshine Sauce

Salmon in sunshine sauce may not sound like something you think you need in your life. I know, salmon is delicious as it is. But I didn’t realise how much I needed this until I ordered it in Rome.

St. Thomas More’s Feast Day and turning fails into wins!

Today is St. Thomas More’s feast day. I feel like he’s one of the superstar saints. I mean, he has his own play-turned-movie, so that’s pretty awesome! If you haven’t read/seen it, it’s called “A Man for all Seasons” and it’s very well-done. It tells the story of how Thomas More heroically chose to follow God’s… Read More St. Thomas More’s Feast Day and turning fails into wins!

Fettuccine in Creamy Sundried Tomato Sauce. Guys. First of all, let me just say I successfully made this with two screaming kids in tow.

Meal Plan June 19-June 25

The theme for this week is “not turning on the oven.” It’s not supposed to be too hot, but hot enough that I’d like to avoid heating the apartment any more than necessary. That doesn’t mean we’re sacrificing good food, though! Don’t forget your shopping list: Grocery list week 2! This list includes everything you need… Read More Meal Plan June 19-June 25

Muffins- healthy and delicious!

These muffins are healthy and delicious. They may even change your life. I may be a little obsessed with muffins. When I was pregnant with my youngest son, I made eight batches to store in the freezer for after delivery. So, with 12 muffins a batch, that’s 96 total muffins. We had 3 people eating… Read More Muffins- healthy and delicious!

St. Anthony, St. Anthony. . .

Today is St. Anthony of Padua’s feast day! Sometimes I feel bad for St. Anthony. Personally, I think of him almost exclusively when I’ve lost something. Then I expect him to swoop in and reveal my missing object immediately, as if I deserve that. But you know what, this is your day, St. Anthony! Today… Read More St. Anthony, St. Anthony. . .
