My parents doing what they loved most, cooking a good meal.
Like many adult children, the older I get, the more time I spend reflecting on my parents' life and the many traditions they passed along to me and my siblings. Raised in Chicago, my parents were Italian-Americans who grew up with the same traditions that have been passed down in…Continue

Here is a healthier muffin recipe. I like to make them a lot, mainly for my toddler who won’t touch oatmeal (or yogurt, or cream of wheat, or anything of that texture). It still has sugar in it, obviously, but it does make me feel like he is eating at least a little bit of oats and he loves them. They are not at all overly sweet and are a perfect easy breakfast for the whole family. Read…Continue

Calling all moms! As moms we are no stranger to the act of giving. However, at Thanksgiving we moms tend to have a different type of challenge. The challenge of finding the balance between perfection and reality, so that Thanksgiving can be enjoyed by all, including mom. Sometimes we get too caught up in the Norman Rockwell or Martha Stewart illusion of Thanksgiving. And that is precisely what it is, an illusion. In this segment of Moms’ Timeout will be discussing ways to simplify…Continue

I have always tried to feed my family healthy foods. Tried being the keyword. Cost is usually an issue for many families when they are trying to feed their families the best, and we have been no different. Moving to the backwoods reinforced this commitment for me, and I'm bound and determined to buy, and grow, the healthiest food possible for my family. I realize this will be an area that we will have to continue to grow in, but I'm all for that.
Here's my list of things I…

Determined Healthy Mom
Posted on Sunday 6th, March 2011
I want to start out by saying that my husband and I are not trained healthcare professionals or doctors, just a parenting team looking for the healthiest ways for our family! We started really caring what we were putting into our bodies as well as applying to them while I was pregnant with our first son who was born in 2008. It is truly amazing how preparing for a child will change…Continue

There are a few things in life that get me heated instantly, and our society’s misogynistic view of what woman should look like is one of them. I hate to think that my daughters are growing up in a society with such distorted views of what a woman’s figure is. We come in different shapes, sizes and colors and that’s beautiful. I don’t want my daughters to think that the plastic they…

Did you know that Buckwheat is gluten free? Yes, it is true. Even though wheat is in the name don't let that fool you. Buckwheat is very high in protein and a good source of iron. It has a slight nutty flavor. It will give your baked goods a light brown color similar to baking with whole wheat. It is generally mixed with other flours for best results. It is a healthy alternative to the dreaded "white" flour pancakes.…Continue
