Alisa: Marriage and Peanut Butter Truffles

I have been a longtime reader of Alisa’s blog, One Frugal Foodie (longtime as in years!). She also has a kickass book: Go Dairy Free (my Go Dairy Free review here). Bobby (my husband) and I are both semi-lactose intolerant (he is more so) and I am always inspired by Alisa’a dairy-free recipes. I hope you all enjoy this one!

I was so honored when Maggie asked me to do a wedding-themed guest post! I have been with my husband, Tony, for fourteen wonderful years, and I am happy to tell Maggie that we grow closer every day.

Women’s Work and a Recipe: Quinoa Flake Cookies (Gluten Free)

I had a really wonderful chat with a friend tonight about women’s work and what that means. Did you know yesterday was International Women’s Day?

I don’t consider myself a feminist, at least not in the traditional sense. I don’t think that women should have to have high-powered executive jobs or wonderful exciting careers to prove that they are just as capable as men. I do think that the work women do for their families should be considered just as important as the work that a CEO does (if not more important, actually). I think the feminists of the 60s and 70s got it wrong, and I think they actually made life harder for women of my generation.

I have a few career goals, but I also have family life goals. And in the meantime, here are some things I might do if I could do whatever I wanted all day:

Sunday Recipe: Cornbread Casserole

While making this recipe I felt like I had transplanted myself to another era. This is a recipe of the 50’s (60’s? 40’s?). I could see my grandmother mixing these ingredients on a late fall afternoon, preparing a semi-homemade dinner for her family and waiting to hear about her husband’s and her children’s days.

I like to think that I’m going to be a good wife and mother some day. What this means exactly I’m not sure. I hope to cook good food, take care of Bobby, have a nurturing home, and in general have a healthy life. Being happy and healthy are probably my top priorities.
