Happy Father’s Day!

On this day that celebrates Dads I thought I would share a few quotes from Fathers about being a great Father.

Thoughts From Fathers on Being a Great Father:

The quality of a father can be seen in the goals, dreams and aspirations he sets not only for himself, but for his family.  Reed Markham

I’m a father; that’s what matters most. Nothing matters more. Gordon Brown

To me, having kids is the ultimate job in life. I want to be most successful at being a good father. Nick Lachey

I would say my greatest achievement in life right now – my greatest achievement period is – and I’m still trying to achieve it – is to be a wonderful father to my kids. Bo Jackson

A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father. Frank Abagnale

Mushroom Sandwich

With handsome vegetables like mushrooms and caramelized onions what you have with this recipe is a vegetarian mushroom sandwich that will satisfy the taste buds of all genders.

Salted Dark Chocolate Cupcakes with Salted Caramel

One of my twins Rani got in the mood to make some chocolate cupcakes a few weekends ago. But Rani is a picky one; she likes dark chocolate, even in her cupcakes. YES! I thought. I am going to be treated to an adult cupcake made with dark chocolate!

Now as you may know, there are countless chocolate cupcake recipes out there, hundreds of recipes actually. Yet somehow Rani was able to narrow down her search to this one recipe from Gimmesomeoven.com. She asked me to take a look at the recipe for 1: do we have the ingredients and 2: for approval – i.e. is this an easy recipe to follow. I gave her the thumbs up 👍.  This is how Rani’s chocolate cupcakes turned out.  Pretty cool!

Guys Brunch on a Sunday Afternoon

We find guys are so hard to get gifts for.  Wine, coffee, chocolates, gourmet foods, these are what we turn to when we are struggling to figure out what to get our guy.  Do you see a pattern here?  They are all food-related presents. You know the age-old saying, “A way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.”  That holds true no matter who the man is. Continue reading Guys Brunch on a Sunday Afternoon
