Aside from blogging, I also do occasional articles for our hyperlocal online newspaper, TheAlternativePress.com. My latest assignment was to interview my neighbor, Wade Burch, who just won Round 1 of Food Network's "Chopped Champions."
I came home yesterday from spending the day at the beach with my three kids, fed them dinner, and put them to bed. Wade called to do the phone interview around 10pm and I wrote my piece last night in a quiet house. How cool is it that we get to do… Continue

If you want to shake things up a bit, try ordering one of these items on your next trip to In-N-Out. Some are standard knowledge; others may need to be explained to employees, but they should do their best to accommodate you.

When I found out that I would be given the opportunity to speak to Arjan Stephens, Executive VP of Sales and Marketing of Nature’s Path Organic, and the son of the Founder, Arran Stephens, I have to admit that I was nervous. Should I prepare some hard-core questions, jot down notes or…

As a mom of two-within-two-years, I’ve had many learning opportunities to refine my coping skills. While this category of behavior includes healthy activities like working out or meditation, I tend to defer to other ones such as wine, junk food, and mindless television. The truth of the matter is that I have… Continue

Today its rainy, and honestly I’m over the rain. Lately it’s been raining here more than it’s been sunny. I’ve almost forgotten what the sun looks like. Some days I believe I moved to the Pacific Northwest and maybe, just maybe, Edward will come running down my street. I kid. But, some days, a nice warm mac and cheese makes up for the cold I can’t seem to shake off no matter how warm I keep the house.

Some days it’s more important to let the laundry go undone, the floors un-mopped and the dishes left in the sink. Today was one of those days and, since the weather was simply glorious, I opted to take the girls for a walk to the store and push back making dinner. In all honesty, we really did not need anything, but the dog and Baby Girl #1 both wanted a walk. So instead of starting a nice dinner, I defrosted shrimp while we walked to the store as the sun set. Once home, I made dinner in… Continue

Toxins in Food- Be Careful what you eat
I think most of us CFS / ME sufferers are familiar with toxins upsetting our delicate immune systems so I have put together the following blog about toxins in some of the every day food we consume. This has been a difficult week for me with very low energy on most days resulting in resting in bed for far longer than I would like. I have kept it short but hopefully informative and when time and energy permit I shall follow up with a blog on… Continue

My daughters are growing up in an age of text messaging and seedless watermelons. I worry they’ll be too soft; won’t be ready for what the real world’s going to hand them. And then, look, seeds in the ‘seedless’ watermelon! That’s right girls, sometimes life throws you curve balls!
Speaking of balls. ...Continue… Continue

I thought that maybe on this Toddler Tuesday, I would travel off the beaten path of cute baby pics and
videos, to bring you a few tips regarding making your own baby food at
home. You see, somewhere along the way I got it into my head that I
would never serve Riley any store bought baby food. I had always heard
how expensive that stuff was and how easy making your own baby food
really is. Also, I…

Okay, I get it - I've read the newspaper, and my mom has described (in lurid detail) the more disgusting scenes in Food, Inc. Our eating habits are terrible and I want my family to be healthier. Unfortunately, I'm also coping with busy schedules, picky teens, and a bank account that doesn't allow me to indulge in… Continue

I know breakfast is the importand meal of the day. I have my complete meal for breakfast. But how about you guys? Do you have complete meal too?
Having a morning sex before getting up, is what other considered a complete meal for breakfast, which is applicable only for newly wed couple. What about a cup of coffee? A cup of coffee that would boost up our energy lever and body system, fo us to get and get ready for work. Especially in the bliss of morning sunshine. Some would like to… Continue

It’s been about a week that we dramatically changed things here in the Bleasdale kitchen. After reading Alicia Silverstone’s The Kind Diet and watching the movie Food Inc., my husband decided that he wants to radically change his eating habits to hopefully get rid of the pain he has been in for months.
I went to the grocery… Continue

Michelle Obama’s White House garden is inspiring. The First Lady’s agricultural endeavor both introduces and reminds people to get closer to the land; to conserve Earth’s precious resources; and the importance of growing their own healthy food. For some people this is feasible; for others, both time and natural space interfere with this green-thumb movement. There are many accessible sites to help start your own garden, whether it’s an herb garden in your window sill, planting a fruit tree, or… Continue
