Now, as most of y’all know I am often called a Pollyanna thanks to my glass is half full positive outlook on life. However there is one thing in this world that quickly turns this Pollyanna into a Negative Nelly and that is a good old-fashioned cookie exchange! Shocking, but true! I have participated in my fair share and even organized a few and let me tell you, now I understand what they mean by a labor of love. Except for in this case, unlike actual labor where you totally forget…Continue

Camping isn't on our list of trips for this year (maybe next year), but I still wanted to introduce my kids to one of the great camping experiences ever... S'mores! There's just something about the ooey, gooey, stickiness of the marshmallows and the sweet, smooth chocolate that is enough for me to deem camping as one adventure that everyone must try... at least once in their life. (Of course, there is the beauty of nature and all the creatures you may not normally see, but I'm speaking…Continue

Women place a lot of faith in expensive moisturizers and wrinkle creams, waiting months for them to do what the label promises. Surprisingly though, research is consistently showing that eating certain foods will beautify your skin from the inside out without the cost of those high-priced items…Continue

Please, feel free to view the original post on my blog, Mama Chirps :)
I have to post this recipe, mostly for future reference, because it was awesome! Not to mention, it was paleo AND vegan, too. I decided to experiment today and ventured outside of the normal old smoothie box, and came up with a healthy Chocolate Banana Green Smoothie.

If you read my post last Monday, which you can access here, you know that cooking was never my favorite household chore. It always ranked right up there with ironing and scrubbing the toilet bowl. But the family has to eat, am I right?
Actually, it wasn’t the cooking part that I had an aversion to, nor was it wondering what to make. I have tons of great cookbooks and recipes that have been handed down over the years so culinary ideas are not the issue. It wasn’t even the cleanup…Continue

Don't you just love it when you find a no-fail recipe for fudge? Not just any kind of fudge but chocolate chip cookie dough fudge? What's not to love?
No sugar thermometers; no wondering whether your sugar thermometer is inaccurate because the probe touches the bottom of the pan which is obviously…Continue

Learn how to make chocolate chip cookies that are similar to the ones that you can buy at the mall. I made the Nestle Tollhouse version and few years ago. When I tasted them, they tasted bland as if something was missing. These cookies were exactly what I was looking for. For the recipe, visit us at Uplifting Families for the full recipe.

** I am a chocolate chip cookie whore.
** Sinus headaches and motherhood go together about as well as flannel pajamas go with humidity.
** Meal plans that don't include chocolate or wine are clearly not the plans for me.
** Finding a store that still sells Excedrin Migraine is like finding the pot of gold at the end of a…Continue

I'm not a breakfast person. I generally hate eggs, and usually anything I eat early in the morning disagrees with my tummy. I have found, though, that smoothies work well for me in the morning. Really anytime. Plus they are quick and convenient and give me the energy I need to get from one task to the next. I wanted to share with you my Chocolate Banana Peanut Butter Smoothie recipe made with almond milk, instead of dairy milk, which is much easier on me. At 294 calories (calculated with…Continue

I’m standing at the kitchen counter about to start dinner. I open the cabinet to round up the ingredients for this evening’s meal and I see it, that seemingly innocent white-lidded jar, beckoning my attention. I look away and continue gathering my supplies, but its call is too great to ignore. I remove the Nutella from the cabinet and slowly twist off…Continue

** Apparently, it's ALWAYS my fault.
** Bollywood dancing is actually pretty darn fun.
** Dogs apparently CAN eat a whole bunch of chocolate and not die.
** Turns out that I am not Super Woman.
