• Week Twelve Coronavirus Hiatus & May Favorites… 2020

    Week Twelve. Things are shifting. Now in this Phase One stage restaurants are offering outside dining, fitness studios are reopening as are stores slowly with restrictions in place. It feels hopeful… I think, as a family, we will continue to hibernate a little longer and dip our toes in the water with caution in the coming weeks. There is still so much unknown about the virus, particularly in children, and it seems that the information changes daily. That said, as the country was starting to reopen last week, there was a happening that is anything but hopeful. The death of a George Floyd. What happened to George Floyd and what…

  • Brown Butter Cereal Bars

    Looking to make something super easy, super satisfying and probably already have everything in your kitchen?  I got you! These are upgraded “Krispie” treats with decadent browned butter and a touch of salt. You can really use any plain cereal here… Chex, Cheerios, Rice Krispies, Corn Flakes etc etc. I’d stay away from fruit flavored cereals, but chocolate would work! Last time we made this we used a combo of Cheerios and Rice Chex!

  • March Favorites…

    Well, okay, this March was weird. No other way to explain it. We are living in the middle of a global pandemic that is unlike anything we have ever experienced before… and we are shut in our homes. No matter, I still definitely had my “favorite things” this month. I apologize if there are repeats from months past… what can I say, I didn’t get out much.     Drizly Alcohol Delivery – So, we are all trying to stay home and not venture to stores… this service is brilliant. Delivery from your local liquor stores… just like Instacart or Prime Now… but for your Tequila, Wine & mixers. A…

  • Week Three Corona Virus Hiatus: Let’s Move

    Alright, alright, alright… here we go, week three! How is everyone doing? Stir crazy? Hanging in? I have found that a daily (okay, almost daily) dose of exercise has been doing wonders over here. I have rounded up some great sources for workouts below… and don’t forget getting outside for a walk, run, bike ride… just please keep your distance from others! If you have ever debated getting a Peloton, now is the time! It runs around $58 a month! Even if you don’t want to invest in the bike, their streaming service is awesome. Tons of additional  content ranging from yoga to weight training to boot camp. If you…

  • Easter Baskets

  • “Cookie Dough”

    Okay… who is with me on the hunger… all… day… long? I mean it must be boredom? Stress? Right? Any which way… I keep eating chocolate chips… by the handful. But what I really wanted was cookie dough. And perhaps it would be nice if it had some redeeming qualities like healthy fats… I knew I could cobble together some kind of grain free treat with the remainder of my bag of almond flour… this frozen “cookie dough” hits the spot! Make them small so it’s just enough sweet, and don’t skip the extra tablespoon of coconut sugar at the end, it gives it that small crunch that real cookie…

  • January Favorites

So here are this month’s favorites… yep, 3 TV shows on that list!   Please note: A Modern Housewife LLC has affiliate relationships with multiple brands.
