Happy Friday, Friends!!! How was your week? I've had a good one. I spent most of it hanging out at home with the kids. Actually, now that I think about it, I'm not sure I went anywhere this week! The last time I left the house may have been last Friday when Julia and I went shopping at Buy Buy Baby and then out for a snack at Panera. I do love to be at home, but perhaps it's time that I went out for coffee or to the grocery store or something! :)

Very soon Kristine's Kitchen will be getting a new look! Over the past few weeks Brad and I have been working (and working, and working) on updating the design and features of the blog. The new design is almost finished, and we're hoping to make it go live in the next day or two. I cannot wait to share it with you!
There are a couple of steps we have to take on our end to be sure that we don't lose any of our email subscribers. Hopefully everything will go smoothly, but please do check back in the next couple of days to make sure that you don't miss out on any recipes. I would hate to lose you in the transition. It's possible that there could be a few bumps along the way in launching the ... [Continue Reading]

I have been making a weekly meal plan for many years now, and have finally decided to post my meal plan on my blog each week! I will do my best to post the meal plan for the following week on Saturday or Sunday, but occasionally a crazy week may prevent me from doing so. I'm sure you'll understand. :) Whenever possible, I'll link to the recipes if they can be found on my blog or elsewhere online.
In my kitchen, I keep a small notebook to record each week's plan. It's nice to be able to look back through the notebook to get ideas from past weeks. (I'll also put notes on the pages ahead when I think of ideas for the upcoming weeks, or when I need to remember to eat that casserole that I ... [Continue Reading]
