First Week of School Lunch Round-Up

We survived the first week of school! It’s a big year for us, with D, my “baby,” in kindergarten. J, my older son, is in second grade. Second grade! Craziness. This is the first year I’ll have to consistently pack two lunches each day. We’ll see how it goes! Here’s what I made for them … Continue reading

Homemade Fruit-Filled Strawberry Bars

Hi, everyone! I’m back after a very long break from blogging. Life got so busy that blogging fell to the wayside (largely because I was either not home or preoccupied during prime daylight hours, when the lighting is most flattering for amateur food pics!), but I found myself thinking about the blog all the time, … Continue reading

TGIF: Snack and Lunch Round-Up for 9/16 – 9/20

Another Friday, another lunch roundup! This week, I kept things simple because I was short on lunch prep time most days. Monday, Jack brought his PlanetBox for lunch with three turkey roll-ups, cheddar cheese cut out with an airplane cookie cutter (and decorated with food markers), Ritz crackers, apple wedges, kiwi, and chocolate-covered dried blueberries. … Continue reading

TGIF! Snack and Lunch Round-Up for 9/9 – 9/13

This was the first full week of school for the boys, and it wiped all of us out! After more than three months of not having to make lunches every weekday, this week was a sudden jolt back to reality. 😉 That being said, I did have fun putting food together for Jack, and my … Continue reading

First Week of School!

Jack and Derek both started school this week. Derek headed to his last year of preschool on Tuesday, and Jack starts first grade (wha-what?? When did my baby turn into a big kid?) today. That means I’m back in the snack- and lunch-making (and blogging) business! I usually have Derek stay at school for lunch once … Continue reading

Whole Wheat Cheddar Cheese Crackers

The other day, my friend Tiffany posted a picture of the whole wheat cheddar cheese crackers that she made for her daughter. I looked at the recipe (from the Weelicious blog) and was intrigued by the fact that there were only three ingredients — whole wheat flour, butter, and shredded cheddar. Well, OK, and salt, … Continue reading

Mini Babybel Mozzarella: Review and Ideas

Mini Babybel® Cheese provided me with product for this review. However, thoughts and opinions are my own and do not necessarily reflect those of the brand. Last week, Mini Babybel sent me samples of its new mozzarella mini Babybels for review on Saucy Mommy. I was very excited because Jack and Derek absolutely love mini … Continue reading

TGIF! Snack & Lunch Round-Up for 8/20-8/23

As promised, here I am with the rest of the pictures of this week’s day camp snacks and lunches. Tuesday’s snack was homemade Star Wars cookies (from this recipe) and cut-up strawberries with light saber cupcake picks (as mini forks). I used my new snack-sized PlanetBox Shuttle boxes for the snacks. I can’t say enough great … Continue reading

I’m Baaaaack!

Hi, everyone! I’m back from my summer blogging hiatus. We spent a lovely month with my in-laws at their beautiful Michigan home. The boys swam in Crystal Lake, attempted to skip stones on the shores of Lake Michigan, hiked through the woods, and ate ice cream just about every day. Johnny and I enjoyed quality … Continue reading

Hi, everyone! As many of you know, this is a summer of travels for me and the boys. We just returned from an amazing month in Taiwan, and soon, we’ll be spending a few weeks by Lake Michigan with my in-laws. So, Saucy Mommy is on a summer hiatus, but I did make something the … Continue reading
