My Clown Family

A little Halloween hello from my clown family to your family!
You know we can’t resist a reason to dress up, so we had to break out the clown costumes and makeup!

Our family dressed up as clowns for Halloween, wearing vintage clown costumes and makeup. Here's some pictures if you need clown costume ideas for your clown family!

Enceladus’s schedule included a few Halloween events happening over the past week, so I was pretty happy when she announced she wanted to be a clown witchy.  What is a clown witchy you ask? Well it’s a clown who rides a broom.    I thought it was brilliant when she told me!

Easy Cheesy Cauliflower Casserole is delicious and only takes 10 minutes to prepare! This loaded casserole recipe is made with Cheddar and Parmesan to make it extra cheesy!  My family declares it one of their favorite side dishes on the holiday table! Low carb friendly. 

Ok, we have the 3 C’s here.  Let’s talk about them.

Cheesy – who doesn’t love cheesy dishes (hello Cheesy Green Beans)?  Mozzarella, Cheddar and Parmesan are my favorites for recipes.  And this recipe includes 2 cheeses!
Cauliflower – beautiful cauliflower, fresh from the garden, I love you.  You can’t go wrong with cauliflower, you just can’t!
Casserole – I love casseroles.   You put them inside the oven and magic happens.  That’s the only way I can describe it.

We love this casserole, especially when we can pick the cauliflower straight from the garden.   We love this dish as a meatless Monday meal with crusty bread on the side.   But you can also serve the casserole as a side dish,  it’s perfect to pair with a meat at the holiday table.

You can never go wrong with Rocky Road desserts, I find that sweets such as Rocky Road Ice Cream and Rocky Road Cheesecake are always a hit! With the ooey gooey marshmallow, crunchy nuts and chocolate deliciousness, I always get rave reviews when I serve them at parties.

Brownies are amazing on their own, but when you add a hefty dose of marshmallow fluff to the mix, you end up with a unique and decadent dessert that people go crazy over! I brought these brownies to a party the other night and they disappeared in minutes.

I’m back with another stuffing recipe! So many of you have loved my Amish Potato Stuffing recipe, so I decided to share with you another favorite, Blueberry Bread Stuffing! It obviously does not need to be Thanksgiving to make this stuffing, but it is the perfect Thanksgiving side dish!

This is the perfect side stuffing to accompany a main meat, like chicken or turkey. It’s also the perfect vegetarian side dish because it doesn’t involve any meat products or broths (it’s made with vegetable broth).

Trying To Stay Positive After 3 Miscarriages In a Row

I had a successful pregnancy and then 3 recurrent miscarriages in a row in a year. Here’s my story and how I’m trying to stay positive.

When I got pregnant this time around, I had really positive feelings about it. I told myself that this baby was going to survive and that Enceladus was going to have a sibling. I’m not sure why I was so positive, but I was. So break my heart, but I had a miscarriage. Again. And again.

Let me back up a bit.

In 2017 we had a healthy baby girl. Her name is Enceladus and she’s the joy of our lives. She’s my best friend and I love her beyond describable words. That pregnancy (my first ever) was pretty much uneventful ( I mean besides changing our lives forever). I got pregnant pretty quickly after we started trying. There weren’t any complications and I felt good throughout the entire pregnancy. Call me crazy, but I kinda liked being pregnant. I felt healthy and I liked feeling my baby tumble around in my big belly. 39 weeks later, with just 10 minutes of being in the delivery room, Enceladus entered the world in a rush.

18 months later we decided that we wanted to give Enceladus a little sibling that she could play with (and boss around). We figured it would be relatively easy to get pregnant again. After all, the first time around went so smooth. But we were wrong. It hasn’t been easy. It’s been full of blood tests, unanswered questions and tears.

Today we’re talking about stuffing, because Thanksgiving will be here before you know it! The possibilities are endless with stuffing and I’m such a huge fan of it. I love playing around with stuffing recipes and creating new and tasty versions. I’ve shared my Amish Potato Stuffing and Cheesy Broccoli Stuffing Casserole before, but I wanted to share with you my current favorite side dish, Potato Kale Stuffing.

This recipe uses my Amish Potato Stuffing as a base, but I threw in kale to add some greens. Since the dish has a whopping 4 cups of kale in it, you don’t even need to make an extra vegetable to serve at dinner.
