What's for Dinner

Perfect Steak Marinade

Summer grilling is in full effect and this is an easy and delicious marinade for most cuts of steak.  I love using flank since it's one of the leanest cuts, but skirt steak is always a nice treat as well!
Obviously the longer you marinate the more flavorful the meat will be, but marinate for no less than 6 hours!

2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 small onion, chopped
2 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
2 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp. Dijon mustard
2 tbsp soy sauce
1/3 cup vegetable oil
salt and pepper to taste

1. In a shallow long dish add the steak and top with garlic and onions.  
2.  In a bowl mix Worcestershire sauce, balsamic vinegar, Dijon mustard, soy sauce, and oil until well blended.  Pour evenly over steak then season with salt and pepper.  Cover and refrigerate flipping the steak over halfway through.  Steak is best if marinated overnight. 
3.  Bring the steaks to room temperature before grilling on med heat for 6-12 minutes.

Toddler Book and Art Activities

My son is car obsessed!  Really anything with wheels: cars, trucks, motorcycles, bikes, trains, wagons, planes, etc.  He can play cars and trains independently for good chunks of time, and is a little too obsessed with the Cars movies.  While I love that he can play independently so well, this summer, I want to make sure we focus more on books and art, rather than television.  Don't get me wrong, I believe TV has its place, but I want him to see reading and creating are also good quite time activities.  I've decided to combine these two ideas and do crafts based on some great books.  Every week we will pick a new theme, read books based on this theme, and then do crafts centered on the same theme.

 For our first week we did car/train/plane books.  We went to the library Monday, and the book store Tuesday.  Here is what we chose.

Care of Hampton Bays Public Library and Bookhampton

After reading them a million times, and I must admit watching Cars again!, I found some car based crafts from Pinterest.  Ah, how I love Pinterest! JJ and I try to do crafts throughout the year, but the summer is great because not only do I have more time, but painting can be done outside, so less mess.  We chose to make car paintings.  While JJ was napping, I gathered his paints and a bunch of cars.  When he woke, we set up paper on his plastic picnic table outside.  I had to model what to do once, he was a little hesitant about putting his cars in paint, but he quickly got the hang of it.  It was so fun, and I loved the final product.
Hesitant at first, but he quickly got into it!

Totally frame worthy

Since it was outside, I just hosed off the table and the cars and cleanup was done!  I already am looking up more ideas, thinking a cool stoplight collage I saw next.
Check out my Pinterest board for other book based craft ideas.  Happy crafting!

Yellow Dye # What?!

     Other countries won’t allow them, but our “great nation” does.  Marketing companies prey on overworked parents by slapping “Whole Grain” labels on the boxes to help justify the irresponsibility of their product.  Yes I’m talking about the toddler and child beloved Kraft Macaroni & Cheese.  I’m writing this not to make moms and dads feel guilty or inferior, we have enough of that everyday simply by reading other blogs or checking other’s Facebook statuses.  I just hope to enlighten AND offer a simple solution to this nonsense surrounding what is undoubtedly one of Kraft’s most popular dishes.
     I swore off over processed boxed food such as Kraft’s Mac & Cheese years ago, in an attempt to eat and feed my then husband, now growing family, more whole foods.  That’s not to say our diet is perfect.  We don’t eat all organic, I regularly use white sugar, and even occasionally use boxed rice (which include mysterious “flavor packages”).  But I have and continue to make a conscious effort to read labels, cook good, healthy, and real foods, that I can feel good about serving.  A few months ago I read parts of Robyn O’Brien’s The Unhealthy Truth: How Our Food is Making Us Sick and What We Can Do About It. Like most nonfiction, I really considered parts that were relevant to me and moved past other parts that I felt didn’t apply to me or make sense.  One part literally kept me up, pouring over articles supporting its claim on the internet.  The use of artificial food dyes in many kid friendly foods that are BANNED in most other countries, except the U.S. 

     Here are a few links to the articles that fueled my disbelief and rage, and again take what you want from this.  But if topics such as food allergies, cancer, and childhood behavior and learning disabilities are of concern to you, seriously consider removing certain food products from your home as well as your child’s diet.

     Now, just because I don’t serve Kraft’s version of mac and cheese in my house doesn’t mean that I deprive my toddler (and myself) of this classic comfort food.  There are literally hundreds of recipes available online, but I’ll include the one I’ve been using for years, and now since I make it (usually in large batches to freeze) so often, I rarely follow a recipe because it really very easy to make.  And while this recipe isn’t quite as simple and convenient as adding milk, butter, and orange powder, it’s not that far off.  Most would even agree that it actually tastes a lot better too.
My guy enjoying left over mac & cheese for lunch

Baked Mac & Cheese
1 lb. box of elbow macaroni (any variety- I love using the whole wheat or pastas fortified with extra nutrients like Ronzoni Smart Taste)
¼ cup of butter
2 ½ tbsp. of flour
1 cup of milk
2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese
½ cup of bread crumbs (I love making my own from the ends of bread left out to get stale and pulsed in the food processor)

1.       Boil the elbow macaroni according to the “al dente” directions.  Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
2.       In a large pot melt down the butter.   Slowly whisk in the flour ½ tablespoon at a time to create a roux.  As soon as you’ve added all of the flour begin pouring in the milk slowly until smoothly combined.  Next add 1 ½ cup of the cheese until its melted and the sauce is creamy.  Remove from heat and add the pasta into the pot and mix.  Pour the macaroni and cheese into a casserole dish and sprinkle the remaining ½ cup of cheese on top, and finally top with bread crumbs. 
3.       Bake in the oven 20-25 minutes until the cheese is golden and bubbly.  If you plan on freezing a batch, put directly in the freezer after step 2 and defrost completely before baking about 30 minutes in the oven.

Summer Reading

No more pencils, no more books???  I hope not!  Even though school is almost out for summer, it is time to...

The last week of school is finally here!  For parents, kids, and teachers alike, these last few days are met with a mix of emotions.  Whatever your summer plans are, we can all agree that it is important that children keep up their reading over the summer.  I don't think summer should be all skill and drill, kids are kids, and summer should be fun, BUT reading is fun!  Children that do not regularly read over the summer  suffer noticeable losses in their reading levels.  Reading should be fun and relaxing, whether it's done on the beach or at bed at night. Now is the time to teach, and model for, our children that reading is enjoyable.   Luckily for us, there are many local programs that support summer reading for all kids, ages 0-18.  This year New York libraries are advertising a "Dig Into Reading" themed program for preschool and elementary aged students, and "Beneath the Surface" for teens.  These programs include prizes and parties at the library.  They are a great way to get kids reading, and to participate in some community events.  Here are the details for our local libraries.

Product Review Time for Tots Learning Kits

This past winter I was looking for some indoor educational activities to do with JJ. Play is the most important activity for toddlers.  It is how they learn.  I wasn't looking for him to memorize his shapes, colors, or letters, I was actually looking to work on some fine motor skills.  I wanted him to practice picking up and working with small objects.  Fine motor skills are tough work, and often seem to be harder for boys.  A lack of fine motor skills can lead to poor tool manipulation, like scissor use, or handwriting problems later.  I came across this great company that makes learning kits. Time for Tots Learning Kits are for toddlers through young school age.  Nicole, the mom behind this company is a former teacher and reading interventionist.  There are different levels and themes.  There are also kits based on the alphabet and sensory tubs.  I originally ordered this kit for JJ.  We love it!  There are some activities he is too young for, but he still enjoys using the materials.  As a working parent, time is a precious commodity.  To find all of these materials, type up directions, laminate, and bag everything together, would take way too long.  Nicole has done all this for you!!!!  Since JJ is only 1, and I still can't trust him to not eat some small objects, I keep the bin away and pull out different activities as we want to play.  Whether or not, he is using them correctly, he is working hard and having fun.
Here he is working on matching shapes, by far his favorite activity.  He really works on lining them up exactly in the outline.  Working those fine motor skills!!!  
P.S. Ignore the crazy outfit.  This was a stay at home with daddy day:)

Another fun time learning about texture.  And yes, mommy had to help here, but he enjoyed manipulating the materials.

These learning kits are now my go to gifts for our birthday parties this year.  All of his friends are turning two, so they are at the perfect age.  My favorite thing is that Nicole will make them in any theme possible with the custom kit.  So far this year, we gave one friend the Sesame Street Kit for our Elmo loving friend, a Curious George kit for a Curious George party, a dog breed kit for a dog themed party, and a farm animal kit for a Old McDonald theme party.  I'm so excited to buy more for our summer parties.  Of course I also had to buy JJ a Thomas the Train themed kit when I found out Nicole could make those too.

JJ and his Thomas kit
  He loves moving the engines around.
Henry and his Curious George Kit

As JJ becomes better with them, and needs more, they also have Kit of the Month Clubs.  These come in different levels to meet your child's needs.  Not only does this bring variety to you monthly, it also helps save on shipping.  I can't say enough good things about these kits.  We work on them together, he also likes to manipulate the objects independently.  You can see the pride in his face when he places something in a space, right or wrong, and yells Mama!!  Nicole knows what is both educational and fun to these little guys.  Nicole also has a facebook page with more learning activities.  Check it out!

DIY Magnet Board

DIY Magnet Board

This project was super easy and was finished before my daughter woke up from her nap. I first found this project on Pinterest last year and loved how creative and inexpensive this was.

Kate from Nic and Kate came up with this great idea since she had a stainless steel refrigerator and had no magnetic space she wanted a place where her kids can play with alphabet magnets. She mounted an oil drip pan on her kitchen wall, and with more people switching to stainless steel appliances, this seems like a great solution to the problem.

You can read more on Kate's blog: Nic and Kate


So here is my version:

I found an oil drip pan in the automotive section of Walmart for about $11.00. The drip pan has an oily residue on the surface that came off with some simple green (you can use any degreaser). Be sure to wipe the grease off the front AND the back.

I bought 3M Large Velcro strips by Command for about $4 at Walmart. I used all 6 Velcro strips for this project. I used one in all 4 corners and 2 in the center top and bottom of the drip pan. I then stuck the other side of the Velcro to the Velcro strip already on the pan, then I pealed off the back and adhered it to the wall.

And that's all there is to it. Added some magnets I got at the Chicken Kidz Consignment Event. Super easy and inexpensive.

I surprised my daughter with it when she woke up from her nap. I have one happy toddler, don't ya think??


I also found some more great ideas for the use of the oil drip pan:


Over at Creative Thriftiness they used fabric and mod podge to cover the drip pan.



You can also turn this oil drip pan into a chalkboard just by using primer and chalkboard paint like they did here at Growing A Jeweled Rose

Total time:

Serves: 6-8


Delicious hot fresh doughnuts!


  • 1 can Pillsbury biscuits
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 Tablespoon cinnamon
  • 2 cups vegetable or canola oil (You can also use shortening just make sure to use enough for the biscuits to be able to float)


  1. Heat oil in medium size pan over low-medium heat.
  2. Open can of biscuits and lay biscuits on a tray or cookie sheet.
  3. Cut holes in center of biscuits (I use a thimble) and place to the side; you can use these to make doughnut holes.
  4. Place sugar and cinnamon in medium size bowl and mix thoroughly; set to the side.
  5. Carefully place 1-2 biscuits in oil.
  6. After 30-45 seconds flip with tongs or flip when they are golden brown.
  7. Watch carefully because they cook fast.
  8. After 30-45 seconds pull them out and place in sugar bowl.
  9. Stir and flip in sugar to coat doughnut.
  10. Place on a rack to cool.
  11. Repeat with remaining biscuits til done.
  12. Serve and enjoy.


Be sure to keep an eye on the doughnuts when cooking because they do cook fast. If your oil is too hot it will burn the doughnuts. It is best to keep the temp low.
