I had a big carton of buttermilk left over in my refrigerator from a recipe I tried recently- what it was, I don't even remember now... but with the little chill in the air, thought I'd whip up a hot batch of biscuits. My go-to recipe has always been Fannie Farmer's baking soda biscuits

So here we are at another October page on the calender. As most of you know this is the month that changed my family’s life for the better and the worse. Julia was diagnosed 5 years ago this month and we are looking back from this place where we are now, in awe. Julia is still doing well and is almost 7 months out of treatment this time. We are beyond happy but never relieved. This past few weeks has brought many declarations of bad news in our little… Continue

I ran across this free ebook yesterday on social networking and was very impressed by what I learned. The sections on Facebook and Twitter were by far the best.

I have had many responses lately from readers and friends wanting to know some more safe and great products for babies. It's good news that the amount of healthy, safe, and organic products out there is increasing. New mommies don't have the energy and time to search for the best baby food, colic remedies, safe… Continue

Your son just turned 2 and you feel it's time to enroll him in a daycare setting where he can socialize with other children. You decided to look at the 5 closest schools to your home. What exactly are you looking for? What catches your eyes and thoughts right away? What makes you decide not to enroll in a school?

I have wrapped up my maternity leave and am now enjoying my official Mabel duties. One of these duties includes overseeing the Sales Department, which is kind of funny since I almost killed a sales guy this week.
The other evening I was nagged by the sound of a faint knock at our door. I was just starting all the bedtime routines and it was a particularly challenging evening since daddy-o was out of town.
I ignored the nagging knocking as long as possible then finally… Continue

Benjamin Franklin is remembered for a plethora of great things, ranging from his ability to rise in the world as a printer to his inventions to his role in the formation of our country. In The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin, Franklin writes of how he came to create his Thirteen Values in order to live a virtuous and productive life. His eleventh value, "chastity," carried the notation, "Rarely use venery but for health or offspring; Never to dullness, weakness, or the injury of your own or… Continue

At 15, most of Jason’s friends had dropped out of school. At 17, Jason was thinking about dropping out, too. He found himself sitting in school suspension in October of his senior year of high school for skipping too many days of school. He plotted his escape by telling the teacher he wanted to check out the colleges who were recruiting students in the gymnasium that day. Jason wasn’t interested in college. This was just a way to get out of suspension. The first booth he came to was a Marine… Continue

Let's face it, being "Momalicious" isn't easy. Some days I look in the mirror and say "how the heck did I get here!?" Some might think "what's the big deal?" But if you see what I see looking back at me in the mirror you'd understand. I'm not proud of it but I can go weeks without tweezing my brows or waxing my hair lip.

After I pulled myself away from watching The Game on YouTube, I made my way downstairs to my sewing room/studio/workshop whatever you want to call it to get some work down. Slow start today. Once I finally got behind the sewing machine again things went smoothly but I quickly remembered that I HATE all the prep work. The cutting and such that goes before you can sew a product together. I'm thinking that I have more on my plate than I can handle but I don't know. Maybe I just didn't hit my… Continue

I went riding through the woods, hills and valleys on a utility vehicle, sort of like a two seated four wheeler, to rescue my son. He got stuck far off the road on some rough terrain, so I went along for the ride, bouncing along dirt roads, dodging briar's, just hanging on for the ride. It was fun but a bit scary at times, when I was saying, that hill is too steep to climb. We made it fine and got my son home safely, what will we do for our children?
I thought, life is that way, we… Continue

It was my cardio day at the YMCA -- half an hour on the elliptical machine (likely created by a masochist) while actively reminding myself not to dance or sing outloud as my iPod blasted my favorite songs directly into my brain. Of course I forgot my towel to wipe away the sweat dripping off my eyebrows. Sweat used to embarrass me, but now I embrace it. Sweat is good. At the Y anyway. Otherwise, I'm not down with sweat at all. I was working extra hard because not only do I watch the… Continue
