If today were three months ago, I would have said “I’m so happy to find so many moms just like me.”
Today…today I can’t say that, because it saddens me. Two weeks ago I wrote a post about the big blogger butt blues.
I won’t lie, I’m happy that so many commented, but I’ve got to tell you, at the same time, reading through the comments, breaks my heart.
So many women, dwelling in the land I lived for 4 years. A land that where everyone but me came…Continue

See this kid?
He had an incident about a week ago. It all started with a fruit and nut bar sample at Costco. I didn't think much about trying the sample, seeing as Buddy has been exposed to about every nut under the sun. At almost 4, I naively thought we…Continue

Would you feed your child a Twinkie for breakfast? According to a report by the Environmental Working Group, they will get even more sugar from Kellogg's Honey Smacks. It contains 20 grams of sugar and is 56% sugar by weight. Yikes!…Continue

I was thinking…
I try to feed Connor the healthiest of meals. Usually foods that are quick and easy to make and prepare. Foods we can all sit down and eat together. I bet you all want to do that same thing, right? So out of that thought came Connor’s…Continue

I am in love with my new Bella Cucina donut maker. What is it about donuts that we love so much? That sweet shape promises us something sinful. In this case, it's not so sinful. It's just waffles but the kids think it's a special day when we have donuts for breakfast.…Continue

I was in the grocery store a couple of weeks ago and I over heard a conversation between a mother and her (maybe) 5 year old son. They were standing next to a large display of asparagus in the middle of the produce section. Here's what I heard:
Boy: Mom, what's that?
Mom: It's Asparagus.
Boy: Can we get some?
Mom: No, Asparagus is yucky.
This small interchange really stuck in my craw. It took all my will power to keep myself from rushing the asparagus…

I could not be more excited to get up and brush myself off after being so sick these last couple of weeks. I still hack occasionally but my energy is back and I'm operating at 98%. I am back at work (BOO) and my kids still have this week off. They are going to a little sleepover at…Continue

I stumbled across this recipe months ago. But it wasn't until a month ago that I finally made it. You see, when I come across a delicious looking recipe involving chocolate I can't help but read on. 'Tis my lot in life to be a *sigh* chocolate lover.
And this recipe is awesome. And I mean that in more than one way.
1. No sugar in it.
2. No dairy in it.
3. No wheat in it.
4. No cooking.
5. Absolutely awesome flavor, texture and it even presents…

Isn't this beautiful? I saw this purple cauliflower at the Farmer's Market and had to buy it. I couldn't resist the deep, gorgeous color. According to the Livestrong website, cauliflower has all the nutritional benefits of regular cauliflower but…Continue

One way I’ve learned to get my kids excited about their adult relative’s birthdays is to get them excited about creating a healthy treat in honor of the event. The boy and girl have come to associate their father with peanut butter, their grandfather with chocolate chip cookies and their “Nana” with brownies. My parents came to visit from NJ today to celebrate my mother’s birthday, so of course the occasion called for some brownies.
If you’re looking for a good, straight-forward…Continue

It's exciting, entering the big bad world of introducing SOLID FOOD to my baby. We've been at it since she was 6 months (now 9 months) and have been "mostly" sailing along smoothly.
I can see already though how some might encounter some bumps in the road. I find my daughter gets bored easily with the same foods and is constantly looking for something new.

My name is Utokia Langley. I come from a family of great cooks, none of them professional chefs but trust me some of the best flavors came from the kitchens in my family! Flavor has always been a priority with any meal, whether it was breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert or just a snack. This is what I was raised on and what my taste…Continue
