Happy Feast Day!! Here’s a coloring page for you: Or download stlorenzoruiz. Read more about St. Lorenzo Ruiz here.
It’s St. James’ Feast Day, so this is what we had for dinner. It’s the classic Coquilles St. Jacques, simmered briefly in vermouth and then enrobed in sauce and browned briefly in the broiler. A green salad, some bread, and perhaps some white wine to round off the menu and you’re good to go. And …
A friend who likes to plan early asks: Can I homeschool for free? Quick answer: Yes. Since so many homeschooling resources are now available online, you could get away with little more than pen, paper, a computer, a printer, and an Internet connection. BUT, unless you’re thinking of becoming a 100% unschooler (I’ve met only …

Was getting a bit tired of our usual veggie salads, and needed more vegetarian ideas, specifically those with more of a Mediterranean bent, so I got me Yotam Ottolenghi’s Jerusalem cookbook. I cannot wait to try ALL the recipes. Okay, maybe 99%. I’m not a leg-o-lamb person. But hubby is, so maybe I’ll make that …
With all the listeria hysteria last week caused by hummus, I thought I’d share a very basic recipe for making it at home. It really is that simple and it really is that good. Many of the store-bought hummus available in our area have additional things like red peppers (which my kids don’t like) or …
It’s supposed to be spring! It’s 37 degrees F outside. I want my salad and my fruit and my cold soups. Instead I’m back to this. But at least I can eat it by a sunny window. Gotta be thankful for the little things. Hot and Sour Soup, adapted from a favorite, Mrs. Chiang’s Szechwan …
Reposting from my old blog. Onion soup is a lovely thing to make right after the onion harvest at end of season, when the weather’s just starting to cool down. Onion soup is also a lovely thing to start love stories with. Like ours, which certainly didn’t begin with onion soup, but has seen its …
Today we’re celebrating St. Frances of Rome (click here for her fascinating story), so for dinner I’ve made a chicken dish which dates back to the Middle Ages. Since St. Frances was a good home manager I could imagine her directing the servants to pound the nuts and grind the spices and chop up the …
- Commitment to daily Mass whenever we have a car at our disposal. (This sentence was very hard to type with it being 1 degree F outside. UGH. Please pray for me.) - Confession every two weeks. - Adoration on Wednesday evenings. - Mom’s Reading Material: Sheen, Magnificat, continue/finish up current books. New attempt at …
Are you here for the recipe? I’ve moved it to my Patheos blog. Sorry for the extra click inconvenience, but hope to see you there!
I make no claims at all about the authenticity of this recipe. I’ve read in places that romaine lettuce does not play a part at all in traditional horiatiki. All I know is that our Greek foodie friend who married a Greek foodie gal are two of the coolest people around, and this is how …
Ratatouille is just one of those dishes that make me happy-happy-happy. Besides having all my favorite veggies, it also has such a fun name to say: rat-a-too-ee. Doesn’t that word just make you smile? I try to make this often because I know my days of enjoying it are numbered. My mom, at not-quite-79, can’t …
Here’s a simple, flexible recipe for autumn-themed quinoa. I was out of breakfast ideas and saw pumpkin quinoa on Pinterest, and that was enough to set me experimenting on my own. I’ve had horrible experiences with overcooked quinoa, so this was carefully watched. Bring a pot ~4 cups water to the boil over high heat. …
Note: This is a work-in-progress. This is our rough outline for a Marian study we’re doing in May, covering art, geography, religion, history and the liturgical year. It’s a combination of ideas culled from the Blessed Mother Notebook Project message thread at the 4Real Forums, and a collection of magazine articles and religious calendars that …
I’ve been meaning to blog about each of these salads, but the days are just so filled in the summertime that food blog posts get buried at the bottom of the pile. But I wanted a record of the salads we’ve loved, to make it easier for next summer. The amounts I’m giving here are …
