Festive Food 2015

12/08/2015 09:47:48 AM

One thing that I miss about living stateside is that the season of festive food starts on Thanksgiving and carries on right through New Year’s.  Food and family, trying new recipes, sharing favourite recipes, cookie exchanges, and festive ...

Silence is NOT golden

10/10/2015 13:44:21 PM

Today is World Mental Health Day and it’s time to stop being silent and tell the truth. Silence is NOT golden – not when it’s about mental health or lack there of. No one should  feel that they cannot speak their truth.  No one sh

7 cookies, 1 dough

09/22/2015 11:34:03 AM

I know you’re thinking it’s impossible, 7 different cookies from just 1 dough, well it is most definitely possible.  It all begins with just a dough that’s simultaneously both delicately soft and incredibly rich tasting.  It’

The hardest time to be an expat

08/13/2014 23:09:17 PM

One of the hardest times to be an expat is when you find your heart breaking over something which is happening thousands of miles away. Yes, there are phone calls and skype sessions, but can never take the place of actually being there. This ...

Menu Plan Monday

05/12/2014 01:04:46 AM

It’s been ages since I last blogged a menu plan. It’s not that I haven’t been planning – I just haven’t been sharing. This week is actually a pretty standard set of meals at our house. The Boy’s decided that heR

Stuck

05/03/2014 17:38:10 PM

Today I’m stuck. I have started writing three different blog posts and been unable to finish even one. I’m feeling a bit scattered and I’m sure that’s part of it. Some day the words simply don’t come easily - so instead

Weekends Require Special Breakfasts

05/02/2014 16:01:37 PM

When I was growing up weekday breakfasts were always routine affairs that consisted primarily of cereal. My mom taught Mathematics at a school a good 20 to 25 minute drive from our house so it was on the weekends that she would cook or bake ...

My Blogging Future

05/01/2014 17:39:31 PM

I know I’ve written before about how my blog is no longer really about same things as when I started blogging back in 2009. Lately it’s been sorely neglected and I’m sorry for that because I don’t want to let go and let it die

A New Me…

03/12/2014 03:17:10 AM

Over the last month, I have consciously sought to make changes in my life. You see, I’d arrived at one of those times in life where a small comment someone else made caused me to stop and reconsider all that I was trying to do. I’ve wri ...

Many people are switching to vegetarian food not only to lose weight, but also to have better health. Same goes with wine because of its numerous health benefits when taken in moderation. According to a research conducted by the Queen Mary ...

Uni Necessity: Broadband that Works

09/23/2013 10:26:36 AM

Since I started my Chemical and Energy Engineering degree back in October of 2010 we’ve flipped-flopped between Sky and Virgin internet and TV services almost annually. Both services never quite seem to keep up why Hubby and I need them the ...

not so little anymore…

09/10/2013 05:05:27 AM

Over the last couple of months I’ve slowly come to the realization that my little boy is not so little anymore. I suppose the first signs appeared towards the end of last school year, but I didn’t take notice until we visited the Eden P ...

Musings on Menu Planning

08/19/2013 16:01:26 PM

Pretty much as long as I’ve blogged as American Mom in England, I’ve been menu planning at least a bit. However, with Hubby home to cook dinner all Summer the plan, the groceries purchased, and the meals prepared just haven’t been m

So, last week we did okay with regards to the menu plan. We didn’t completely stick to it, but that’s pretty normal. Last Wednesday there was no curry as I didn’t feel like making one just for me. Friday became ‘Chip Shop̵

What’s for dinner?

06/24/2013 16:38:33 PM

Somewhere along the way, I got out of the habit of planning meals in advance. I found myself asking ‘what’s for dinner?’ upon arrival home from my Uni commute and more often or not the answer involved quick cooking carbs. Lots of st

Expats who Rock!

05/26/2013 17:24:02 PM

Today I did something that I absolutely loathe doing; I removed a post that had been previously published on my blog. You see, I’d featured another expat, an author who publishes her novels for kindle, then she went and decided to ditch that ...
