Someone's In The Kitchen With Dinah

Cooking that's fun and healthy… with my helpers!

Filling In The Blank

Looking back through my posts, I realized I never actually told about the day Taletha was born… or the 24 hours that preceded her birth.  =}  So here goes… As I previously posted, my white blood cell counts were elevated, so we had to induce sooner rather than later.  Now, the fact is that inducing…

Like A Tortoise

Update on my little princess…. Her little tummy was irritated when we tried to bottle-feed and tube feed, so they put her on IV for a couple days to give her tummy a rest.  My personal opinion is that she wasn’t tolerating formula well, and I did not yet have enough milk supply to keep…

When Things Don’t Go Quite The Way We Plan

Today, my husband buried his mother–without me being there to support him.  That was hard to accept.  However, since I had to endure this, and since, by God’s grace, I had already defied the odds (I believe they quoted a rate of 90% of women delivered their babies within a week of ruptured membranes–it’s been…

Life’s Little Curveballs

Yesterday, I posted about being confined to a hospital room, keeping my baby safely tucked inside for a few more days.  I didn’t mention the rest of the craziness going on in my world.  My mother-in-law had been taken to the hospital a day or two after I was (a different hospital, different city–60 miles…

Biding My Time

As some of you already know, I am expecting my 6th child.  Well, for Christmas with my side of the family, we had made plans to celebrate on New Year’s Day.  My husband and I made the drive up with our kids the evening before.  At 2 in the morning, I woke up abruptly, having…

It’s YOUR Turn!

So now that one holiday is over, and I never really posted any holiday recipes…. I decided that it’s time to post some, before the next one hits.  But instead of my usual “post what strikes my fancy”, I’m going to let you have a little feedback here!  Now keep in mind that I am…

Everybody Loves Chocolate!

For those of you familiar with THM, yes, my recipe is similar to the Skinny Chocolate in the book.  But it’s not the same.  In fact, I got my original recipe from the Internet–but it used honey.  For those of you who aren’t “in the know”, coconut oil is awesome stuff.  It will help you…

Brie-Leek Soup

Well, I confess to having soup on the brain these days.  Must have something to do with the weather.  😉  Last night, I made another soup with my lovely yummy bone broth.  This soup was fairly simple, with only a few ingredients, and I didn’t have to do much tweaking to make it fit THM….

Long-Awaited Recipe (Chili Chicken Soup)

All right, friends.  I am so sorry that it’s taken me so long, but someone said I should be posting pictures, so first I had to make the soup… and take pictures while I was making it… and then–WHOOPS!!!!!!!!!!  I realized that I forgot to photograph the WHOLE process!  LOL  I got the first part…
