Homemade Cheddar Bunny Crackers

I do realize the last three posts I’ve written are carb laden.  I don’t know what to say other than this baby in my belly loves carbs! P’s current favorite snack is cheese crackers, so what better snack to bake together than his favorite one?  My toddler is a great (ok, somewhat messy and wild) …

Homemade Pretzels

October has been one gross and sweaty month; thanks Tennessee, I guess we are skipping Fall this year.  Even though last week’s temps creeped towards 90°F with 92% humidity, we can still crank up the a/c, put on a turtleneck and make Fall food!  These homemade pretzels will knock the socks off of anyone’s Oktoberfest …

Sherbet in Grapefruit Cups

It’s that time of Tennessee summer for me.  That “I-won’t-blow-dry-my-hair-anymore-because-it’s-too-dang-hot-outside” time of summer.  Jeans have been retired to the back corner of my closet.  My hair has permanent ponytail kink because again, it’s just too dang hot to have hair on your neck.  It’s so swelteringly humid it makes me not want to cook anything.  In fact, …

Toasted Ciabatta with Ricotta and Sugar Snap Peas

The past seven days have been a bunch of postpartum “firsts” for me. Last week I cared and cooked for houseguests (instead of the other way around), watched my first live rugby match, hosted a small brunch gathering, attended my ladies book(wine) club, took baby P to the grocery store with me, and overall, felt like a normal human being again. PHEW, …

Spicy Tuna Roll

Today marks M’s Belly’s two year blog anniversary!  Woot!  When I look back into the post archives and see my first (uninterestingly written and poorly lit) post for mini beef wellingtons, I see I shot some of the photos outside on the condo balcony.  I remember March being simply lovely and in the mid-50’s that year for …

Buttery Pretzel Bites

Is it just me, or is everyone in a bigger rush than ever this year?  It seemed like we hadn’t even turned the Halloween corner into November and I was getting Christmas catalogues and seeing lawns already decorated with Rudolph and Santa.  I went to the mall at the beginning of this month and it …

Indian Spiced Pumpkin Seeds

Ask my husband and he’ll disappointedly tell you I am NOT a fan of Halloween.  He LOVES Halloween.  He came home from school today and immediately put on his halloween skeleton shirt.  I blame my mother for my dislike of all things Halloweenish.  I do not like the scary movies, haunted houses, face-painting, and creepy …

Poppy Seed Banana Bread

The Hubs told me the other day he’s been buying SOME OTHER LADY’S banana bread on campus lately as a mid-morning snack.  I felt as if I’d been slapped.  Ok, so I haven’t baked in a while, but still!?  I definitely had some rotten bananas on hand this week.  Couple my rotten bananas with The Hubs eating some other …
