  1. Both my oldest and his best friend have stretch marks on their backs. They're both slender and a bit on the the taller side for their age, so yes, must be from growing! He wears the same shoe size as his dad. Keeping deodorant, gel, and zit cream stocked is a part-time job. You strategically pick-up and don't dare turn their underwear right side out until you pull them out of the dryer. You finally invest in that ozone machine you always wanted because you have a legitimate need for it to remove stink from your teen's room, not just to keep the house smelling super fresh and amazing. They wear your husband's clothing and you constantly mistake them for him. Do they do this in purpose just to mess with me? Is it just us or do your guys grab dad's shirts too? Edit: even though you've never been much of a making-desserts mom before (buy, yes, bake, no), you start making them just to add another way to cheaply fill them up and find doing so makes you the best. mom. ever. Who knew? I swear my teens love language = food!
  2. Check out Now brand for future use. It's much, much less expensive. 2 a day month's supply is$10. I take 3 a day.
  3. Super into sheet pan meals recently. I have a fajita recipe to try soon. Love just one pan to clean, and if I use parchment paper, clean up is that much easier. I know we'll love this recipe. Would just use the chicken breast. Thank you!
  4. Oh! And s. Boulardii/Florastor can be taken with antibiotics. It's a beneficial yeast rather than bacteria, so it will survive the antibiotic treatment. Knowing what I know now about how much gut health or lack thereof affects us, I wouldn't take antibiotics without it!
  5. S. Boulardii - found in kombucha - Florastor, Jarrow, Now and many other brands L. Plantarum - found in sauerkraut and other fermented vegetables - Culturelle, Jarrow, other brands Neither of these needed refrigeration. Both survive stomach acid unlike most probiotics. Both actually colonize the gut, while almost all other probiotics are transient and just pass through I take Now S. Boulardii and Jarrow L. Plantarum and hav seen a huge difference in my health since starting. Don't get sick, mood improvement. Most of the cells that make up your immune system (70 percent) and most of your serotonin (estimated 90 percent) is produced in your gut. I've also recommended them to others who have had pretty significant help with gut and other issues, including pretty bad acne clearing.
  6. @emba56 So good. Thank you! I goofed a thing or two, but they turned out great. Definitely a keeper. Edited: And I used gluten free flour with no problem.
  7. Have a chicken breast in the fridge to use for lunch and am making this! It's so cool your recipe doesn't require egg. We have egg allergies here and egg is in so many breaded recipes. BTW, I have two teens who work at McDonalds. Such a great first job. McDonald's has it dialed for teens.❤️ Our fast food eating needs curbed though with them working there and especially with their discount that we all get even if they're not on a shift. Argh! Thank you!
  8. I haven't heard of 00 flour either! I'll definitely look for it. I wonder if I'll find it at my regular grocery stores? Will definitely be trying this recipe! Wow, these look amazing. Do you actually make you own broth for the Pho? My mom loves eggplant. I have to send her your recipe. A post or two down, KungFuPanda posted this link:
  9. Whoops! Just adding recipes to OP but accidentally made a new post. I'm loving your recipes and new meals to try. The only problem is I can't decide which one to try first because they all look delicious! Thank you for sharing with us!
  10. Oh, this sound good. And a family recipe. 😍 Love strong spices like caraway. Unfortunately, I can't read the recipe because I don't have a WSJ subscription!
  11. Thank you for the Merlin recommendation. I would have missed seeing this on Netflix. This BBC series has a Dr. Who vibe to me. 👍
  12. Quinoa Tabbouleh There are other cold salad recipes out there using it that look good and that I need to try. There are a bunch of different but pretty much the same Quinoa tabbouleh recipes online. Add Feta if that sounds good too. Toast the quinoa before cooking or not. And forget this 1/2 a cup of parsely thing. Just use the whole bunch. 👍
  13. I thought of another one. If your crew likes clams, Linguini with Clam Sauce is flavorful, tried and true, and everyone loves it here. I make it for lunch too because it comes together quickly. Garnish: freshly grated Parmesan cheese Changes: Any pasta type works. I replace olive oil for the butter, don't often have the mushrooms, and use dried spices: 2 teaspoons each dried basil and parsley. It tastes great without the wine too. Just Kraft parmesan cheese for garnish for those who aren't dairy free. Less or even no clams is good too.
  14. @dessertbloom and @ThatBookwormMom, I added your yummy recipes to a table of contents in the OP. Thank you for sharing!
  15. I'd really appreciate a thread dedicated to sharing and gathering our favorite main dish, dinner recipes. Try a new recipe and it's a winner? Family fave for some time? Share it here, please. 🥰 Let's say the only guidelines are recipes must be tried-and-true and shared in your post. Links are fine! A recipe title is appreciated too. I'll go first! This Zuppa Toscana (creamy potato, kale, and sausage soup) is a family favorite. My kids can't get enough of it and argue over leftovers. I don't add bacon. Also, you can't taste the coconut milk as the author states. Really. I have one kid who can sit out all meals made with coconut milk He's not a fan and will grab a bowl of cereal or make a sandwich or whatever. But he loves this soup! I do use a little less than is called for though: maybe 3/4 can or so because the coconut milk I buy is so thick and creamy. Seasoning your own pork sausage is easy and what adds so much flavor, as is using smoked paprika vs regular (my tweak.) Add the optional fennel if you can, but it's great without.
