Did you think I would stop with the sourdough sandwich posts? For real guys, I have an entire fresh, mouth watering loaf of San Luis Sourdough® Bread calling my name! I might have to go eat a slice with butter after I finish this! It’s that good! But seriously, sourdough bread is my weakness. You read the blog, you know the truth! Anyway, I was trying to think of more uses for my beautiful loaf besides just dipping it in soup and slathering it in butter when I remembered we had the makings of cheesesteaks in our fridge from last week! So I got to work.Continue Reading
I’ve been a fan of sourdough my entire life. If I go anywhere and sourdough is a bread choice, you know that I will be picking that. Being from California, I’ve had the pleasure of trying some of the tastiest. freshest varieties of sourdough. Something about our air seems to make some of the best sourdough around. I’ve always had the ambition to catch wild yeasts and create my own sourdough starter, but with my life lately the phrase “ain’t nobody got time for that!” comes to mind more and more.Continue Reading

Albertsons is my go to place for grocery shopping. The store employees have become our friends (we even exchanged homemade Christmas gifts last year!) and we love coming in and saying hello to everyone while we shop. They have even grown accustomed to seeing me all the time since I am in there so often buying groceries for our meals as well as all the recipes I share here on the blog. They have even started peeking into my cart, trying to guess what I will be making that day. If our conversation ends with them saying, “Well, now I’m hungry!”, I feel like I’ve done my job.Continue Reading
Have you been watching the playoffs lately? I have to confess that I am not the hugest of football fans, and with all the drama around my hometown team wanting to move if we don’t build them a new stadium, I am sort of just kind of over it. But one thing I do love, are the appetizers that go along with watching the game! You know me, I love to party plan, and I love to create delicious things that are easy to make and easy to share.Continue Reading
I’ve been meaning to share my recipe for the most perfect herb crusted prime rib that you’ve ever tasted for awhile now. I mean, like, years. But it’s not really a cheap thing to just make on a whim in the afternoon just for a blog post, so I had to wait until New Year’s Eve before I could even take a photo.
Every year on New Year’s Eve, I make prime rib for dinner. I like to end the year with a bang – and a big expensive, super filling meal that leaves everyone in a food coma is the perfect thing to end the year on! It also doesn’t hurt that rib roasts are usually deeply discounted that time of the year, so I always end up grabbing one anyway.
I’ve had family members call me on the phone and ask me to walk them through the way I prepare my roast, and I have finally decided to just sit down and write it all down, step by step, exactly how I do it. Normally with a food post, I would create a printable recipe, but not this time. I’ve decided to approach my method more like a normal blog post. It will be much easier to follow along that way, I promise.Continue Reading
The wet El Nino winter the weatherman has been promising us for months is finally here in San Diego! I might be one of the only people here that loves this kind of weather according to my Facebook page of people complaining that their backyards are now lakes and they’ve finally got the pool that they’ve always wanted. The last time we had a crazy El Nino winter was almost 20 years ago and to this day it’s still one of my favorite experiences with weather that I’ve ever had. Something about bundling up and watching the rain pour outside, splashing out of the gutters, flooding the planters and sidewalks, rushing down the embankment is oddly comforting to me. It makes me want to drink hot cocoa, and bake cinnamony things. It makes me want to create simple, rustic meals that warm you up on the inside, like this delicious stew.

When we were kids, we had a sailboat. It was my dad’s love, and we found ourselves on the boat every weekend. Whether it was to go out sailing, take a quick family vacation, or just spend time on the docks, we often found ourselves downtown at the yacht club. This was a long time ago, before downtown San Diego was the hip and swanky “Gaslamp Quarter” it is now.
I remember thinking that my life was so boring being stuck on a sailboat while all my friends were having slumber parties and hanging out at Claire’s at the mall. To my adolescent self, it felt like torture, my adult self wishes we still had that boat.Continue Reading
So maybe you’ve noticed, but the holidays are here. And since the holidays are here, I bet you’re going to be getting invited to a lot of parties, or at the very least, hosting some of your own. I don’t know about you, but most holiday parties I go to are potluck, which means you’re on the hook for bringing something and that can getting pretty time consuming and expensive if you’re popular – and I know you are!Continue Reading
I always wonder how some bloggers find the time to make and remake recipes over and over before finally sharing them to their readers. Let me let you in on a little secret around here at Mommy Like Whoa, I ain’t got time for that. I never test recipes, I simply just don’t share the ones that don’t turn out. You can find a lot of those #fails on my Instagram page.Continue Reading
As kids, my sister had a sickly sweet obsession with Puppy Chow. No, not the bagged dog food, though that might make for a better story. She loved the sweet Chex cereal concoction made with chocolate, peanut butter and powdered sugar. My mom used to make it all the time and my sister would gobble it up. I remember it at parties, and as after school snacks, but I bet if you ask her now, she would say she didn’t like it that much. Regardless, it was around a lot and I haven’t had the stuff since I was a kid.Continue Reading
