Bake Your Own Bread in an Hour!

I was given the recipe of all recipes to make super fast, easy bread, and I can’t wait to share it. This bread costs almost nothing, it’s fun to bake, and so much healthier than the store-bought bread spiked with high-fructose syrup.

Forget expensive bread machines: all you need is flour, rapid rise yeast, water, salt, olive oil, and voila — bread!

I made a phone call, finally ordered some new contact lenses, and paid some bills this morning, so I got that out of the way. After playing with the babysitter for two hours, Landon took an extended nap (with the help of more… Continue

My Stimulus Plan -- Being Grateful

What makes you feel grateful for everything you have in your life? For me it is hearing the wind howl in the trees outside. I’ll explain…



Last night, I crawled into bed at 1 a.m. after finishing an editing project, and as I sighed and got all cozy and warm next to Landon, I heard the wind howl outside.

Tips on Being Frugal and Green!

I want to share some tips with you on how I save money—and who doesn’t want to these days—while being kind to our environment.



1. Save cardboard, address stickers, and toilet rolls for art and craft projects

Growing up in Germany, I remember that my mother always collected little boxes and toilet rolls and would drop them off at our kindergarten when she had saved up a whole bag. We would use those materials for art and craft projects. Do people do that here as well?… Continue
