Friday Brunch!

Friday, July 17th, 2015

The kids are just finishing up their Friday brunch, and it was a huge hit. I thought for sure that there would be leftovers for the teachers, but the kids devoured everything–as they should! The original recipes are linked below, along with details on the modifications I made. Baked Oatmeal: I followed the procedure, eliminated […]

Sweet Potato & Feta Whole Wheat Muffins

Sunday, April 21st, 2013

Disclaimer: I am a hoooooorrrrible baker, and to be fair, I practice at least every other week. But these muffins turned out wonderfully. So if I can do it, anyone can!   Stuck in a lunch rut? If your house is anything like mine, we get bored pretty quickly with food. Last week we had […]

Awesome Avery!

Wednesday, August 1st, 2012

Meet Miss Avery, our student of the week! She is eight-years old and attends LMA. If Avery had her way, the family would have a pet dog—she’s a big animal lover.

Meet L.J.!

Monday, June 25th, 2012

L.J. is in TBDC’s Pre-Kindergarten Class and is quite the package of personality! Whenever I walk into the class, L.J. always seems to be playing “big brother” to his classmates, showing an extreme amount of empathy for such a young man. When he’s not catering to others’ feelings, L.J. is running around outside and playing […]

A Semi-Veggie Home

Monday, June 4th, 2012

My husband is a vegetarian.  I was born and raised in farm country where, when my grandmother heard Michael was a vegetarian, she responded, “That’s not a problem.  I’ll just make him chicken.”  While this difference in culinary culture might present a problem to some couples, we are also blessed with the fact that my […]

Chocolate Pudding w/ hidden avocados

Tuesday, April 3rd, 2012

We hid avocados in the chocolate pudding they are having this afternoon! The recipe came from Jessica Seinfeld’s book Deceptively Delicious, lent to us by Claire (a.k.a. Tate & Beth’s mom). It’s super easy to make, and if we weren’t making it for 100 kids, it would have only taken about ten minutes. Enjoy!   […]

Here’s Henry!

Tuesday, March 27th, 2012

Meet our Wobbler student of the week, Henry! The first thing comes to my mind when I think of him is, “FOOD!” This handsome little guy loves to eat, and will eat anything. He especially loves brussel sprouts, cucumbers, cauliflower, watermelon, shrimp, dutch babies, breakfast sausage, and hot dogs (see, I told you). His new […]

Mac & Cheese Soup

Tuesday, January 24th, 2012

So we all know how important kids’ nutrition is to TBDC, and that one of our favorite things is helping kids try new foods. Granted, I don’t have kids (or picky eaters) in my household, but I made this for dinner tonight and thought of each of you. If you try this recipe at home, […]
