Inspiration for: Cheeseburger Casserole

For this week I’m looking to cook something that has pasta and meat in it. A few posts back I made spaghetti and meatballs for my daughter, who happily had the noodles, sans sauce, sans meatballs. I’m challenged to find a pasta dish that she would want to eat. I’m a bit worried that she’s … Continue reading

Inspiration for: Toddler Food: Tuna Patties

One of my 2013 resolutions is to cook healthier food for my daughter.
