Inari Sushi

Inari Sushi

We have an Asian grocery store fairly close to where we live and we love going there.  I love all the different foods and spices.  My kids love all the different candies and drinks.  (So it's kind of a win-win, right?) I've been making these for years and I love, love, love them!  You can get Inari at any sushi restaurant or store, but homemade?  So much better!  I can't even explain it. We buy canned fried soy bean curd.  It's soaked in a soy sauce kind of a mixture making it … [Continue reading...]

Superhero_Lunchbox_Notes_lowres

I love making lunchbox notes for my kids.  And they love getting them!  But sometimes, it's just easier to print off notes that someone else made rather than sit in front of my computer for a few hours creating them.  So, on that note, I'm sharing all the amazing creations that I found on the web.  Everyone wins, right? We have made quite a few.  You can find them HERE.  Or you can check out my Pinterest Lunchbox Notes Board for even more. Thank you to the amazing bloggers who shared these … [Continue reading...]

If you love Deviled Eggs and Pasta Salad, this is a delicious combination of both.  I’m pretty sure I ate almost the entire batch – it was that good. I changed the recipe a little bit.  Last summer we made Bread and Butter Pickles that are amazing.  We sliced up Walla Walla Sweet onions and […]
