Mmmm.... Homemade Tortillas & Hummus

My 4 year old, Canon, is pretty much obsessed with cheese quesadillas. Standard grilled cheese just won't do, it must be a quesadilla! He also decided about 2 weeks ago that he is a vegEtarian (he emphasizes the E so I did too :)). This is kind of awesome since I am also vegetarian and I am doing the proud happy dance when he isn't looking (I want him to make his own decision- so I am supportive but I don't over do it in front of him). Problem is, he is also a picky eater and now many of my go to meals for him are out the window so lets just say we go through a TON of tortillas. Tortillas aren't crazy expensive but they do add up at the amount that we consume them, plus I only buy the whole grain ones which raises the price tag. And lately I have been striving to make as much homemade as possible- nutella, peanut butter, oat flour, baby food so why not try tortillas?
Well yesterday I had two culinary experiments, one tasted great but didn't turn out (peanut butter cups- my chocolate never set) and one that turned out great- TORTILLAS! Yay!
They are super easy to make but they do take a bit of time- which is great if your kids like to cook- Canon loves to be in the kitchen with me so this was a great project :)

Moppy Floor Cleaner by Natural House- A.M.A.Z.I.N.G Probiotic Cleaner

I just finished trying Moppy made by Natural House and let me say... WOW! OK, so Moppy isn't magic, it won't clean your floors without you but it worked great. I have some seriously dirty, disgusting floors and have to get down the old fashioned way with a scrub brush and lots of elbow grease to get them clean. We are talking a dog, 4 year old, baby who flings food and a husband who has never heard of wiping his feet on top of some stupid design divots and grooves in the flooring- can we say dirt trap?

Two of my floors worst offenders :)

Mom, I'm Hungry and an Easy and Delicious Waffle Recipe



As a busy mom of a very hungry four year old whose favorite words are "Mom, I'm hungry" and an attention craving 7 month old, I am always looking for healthy, filling, fast and easy ways to fill the bottomless pit that is Canons stomach. Waffles are a breakfast favorite around here but I had yet to find a "go to" waffle recipe, until this morning!
I make almost all of our food from scratch for health and financial reasons, plus I like to have time in the kitchen with my boys, there is something special about cooking and dancing around the kitchen together.
