It’s all about the GREEN! Happy St. Patrick’s Day

It’s all about the GREEN! Happy St. Patrick’s Day

Sunday is St. Patrick’s Day. As you probably know, I’m all about the holidays. I like to have a reason, any old reason, to take what could be an ordinary day and turn it into a celebration. In my house, there are no little holidays, and St. Patrick’s Day is no exception. When my kids were really little I tried making a traditional St. Patrick’s Day meal of corned beef and cabbage. That did not go … Read entire article »

Kate’s Escapades – St. Patrick’s Day fun!!!

Kate’s Escapades – St. Patrick’s Day fun!!!

There is an old Irish saying that goes something like this… “There are only two kinds of people in the world, the Irish and those who wish they were.” My husband and kids fall into the Irish category, and I am but a lowly Irish wannabe.  Perhaps that’s why I go a little over the top with my St. Paddy’s Day celebrations.  Maybe I’m trying to prove to them (and myself) that I deserve to celebrate … Read entire article »

So what if I’m a kook for St. Patrick’s Day?! – <br /> Kate’s Escapades

I can tell Chicago is my kind of town. St. Patrick’s Day is coming right up and I’m kind of a kook for this holiday. I’m well know ’round these parts for my grossly green St. Patrick’s Day dinners. It’s my own special way of torturing my family and friends, all while under the guise of providing a semi-nutritious, completely green home-cooked meal. You have two days to get ready to freak out your family … Read entire article »

Kate’s Escapades – Tips for Staying Toasty

Kate’s Escapades –  Tips for Staying Toasty

Is it sooooo cold at your house that you feel like you’re living in an igloo? At this very moment, it is currently 3 degrees where I live. It is beyond nippy. There’s a huge ice storm moving across the country. No school once again at Liz’s house because of the weather. Are you feeling chilled to the bone like I am? Trying to find ways to get warm and toasty without cranking up the heater? Here … Read entire article »

Kate’s Escapades – How to make Rice Bag Heating Pads

Kate’s Escapades – How to make Rice Bag Heating Pads

The cold temperatures of winter have finally arrived. That means chilly nights and nippy mornings. That also means it’s time to bring out the rice bag heating pads. Our family has used them for years to keep our tootsies warm, our hands toasty, and to relieve the occasional stiff neck or back.  I think we first discovered these amazing little things when my mother-in-law gave us a few for Christmas many years ago. There’s nothing … Read entire article »

Christmas Craftdown – Cookie Cutter Wreath

Christmas Craftdown – Cookie Cutter Wreath

When I got out my Christmas decorations a few days ago, I discovered that one of my favorite old wreaths was looking a little worse for wear. Many of the berries had fallen off and the greenery seemed to be smashed beyond repair. I decided it was time for a new wreath. Hooray for computers and Google, because I found wreath ideas galore. So many, that I had a hard time choosing one to make. … Read entire article »

Kate’s Escapades – Let’s Talk Turkey

Kate’s Escapades – Let’s Talk Turkey

The big day is almost here. We have a Thanksgiving motto at my house… Gobble ’til You Wobble! A perfectly acceptable motto for one day of the year, don’t you think?  Well, maybe you could stretch that out to two days, if you have enough leftovers.  But three days?  Don’t try it unless you are expecting a gym membership for Christmas. The star of every Thanksgiving feast is certainly the turkey.  And probably nothing strikes more fear into … Read entire article »

Kate’s Escapades – Witches run Amuck!

Double, double toil and trouble; Fire burn, and caldron bubble. Do you know who we owe this great (often misquoted…does bubble, bubble toil and trouble ring a bell?) Halloween diddy to??? It’s none other than Mr. William Shakespeare. I love the month of October…the crisp air and crunchy fall leaves…the pumpkin patches and corn mazes…the apple scented candles and Fall break at school. But most of all, I love dressing up for Halloween, and most years you’ll find me … Read entire article »

Peep-a-licious! – Kate’s Escapades

Since Easter is only days away, I’ve been out stocking up on my Peeps supply. Heaven forbid I leave my Peep shopping to the last minute, and to my horror, find the shelves bare of the ooey, gooey, sugary marshmallow treats. I would be forever disowned as head holiday empress of my kingdom. I love me some Peeps! Do you love Peeps, too? I’ve gathered a few peep-a-liscious ideas in case you’d like to impress your peeps … Read entire article »

Kate’s Escapades –  April Fools’ Day Food Prank

Since April Fools’ Day is coming up in a few days, we decided this post from two years ago is worth a Second Glance... It’s finally here.  The day when I get to release my pent up immaturity…the day when it’s perfectly acceptable for me to feel mischievous and sneaky…the day when I get to be all the things I try to teach my kids not to be. I must confess, when I was writing yesterday’s ridiculous … Read entire article »

Kate’s Escapades – Fat Tuesday means pancakes for dinner

Kate’s Escapades – Fat Tuesday means pancakes for dinner

“(Tuesday) is Fat Tuesday, and of course, this being America, it will be followed by Even Fatter Wednesday, Obese Thursday and Fat-A** Friday.” –Jay Leno How much do you love a holiday that has as it’s main objective encouraging you to pig out? I’m talking about Fat Tuesday, of course, which just happens to be today.  Or perhaps in this politically correct day and age, we should call it “big-boned Tuesday” or possibly “full-figured Tuesday”.

Liz’s rant: Confessions of a Lenten slacker

Liz’s rant: Confessions of a Lenten slacker

It’s pretty easy to write optimistically from carb-laden bloat. Easy to imagine giving up something for Lent – especially pancakes. But yesterday was Fat Tuesday after all. And while pancakes may seem an item I can give up for the next 40-some days, I must make a confession. I don’t like giving things up. Not by personal choice and not by force. But especially not by force. So when it comes to Lent, I start with ideas … Read entire article »
