As moms, I am sure most of us have to learn baking cakes, whether it is for a school event, a simple fundraiser or Bake Sale, or something elaborate like a Birthday Cake! And more often than not, baking a cake is easy, thanks to tonnes of cake recipes floating around in the internet, but it is the Frosting part which leaves many of us intimidated. However, help is just a small click away! No matter… Continue

I’ve done fairly well this week with my vegetarian step down diet. Giving up meat really wasn’t that hard. at. All. Seriously. And I loves me some bacon. But I’ve done it (ok I had a teensy taste of almond crusted tilapia today made by the chef at the grocery store, but that shouldn’t count). I tried to carry healthy snacks when I could. When I couldn’t carry any around, I either didn’t eat anything at all (I’m totally used to being hungry) or I picked up something semi healthy while I was… Continue

Ok, so its come to my attention lately that apparently, I am not the
only Mommy in the world (or even my circle) who is trying to figure out
a way to raise a family, keep them healthy and happy, and ,while doing
so, keep herself in shape. So, I am proposing that Wednesday, the until
now dreaded… Continue

I will admit it – before making this recipe I had never eaten a pomegranate.
I have had pomegranate juice, but this was the first time I’ve purchased the whole fruit. I had Mike open it up and get the seeds out for me [it kind of looked like a pain to me - thank you, honey!]. I popped one in my mouth – a little crunch, a little explosion of deliciousness!… Continue

The other day a friend of mine was explaining all the foods that she had prepared for their BBQ. They included things I had never heard of and can’t even remember so I could type it here. It all sounded delicious, or maybe it was the way she described them that sounded so good. So she had this great idea of getting our families together and having a big spread. She would prepare Southern cuisine and I would supply the Northern Yankee food. I smiled as I gritted my teeth and thought, “What the… Continue

Today's letter was O. Munch already knows how to make them with wood pieces, so she got started on that while I finished preparing our other activities. I taught her to write the letter and say its sound, as is our usual routine. Today's letter collage had us brainstorming words that begin with O and gluing spots of oatmeal-
Our craft was an adorable paper owl- you can get… Continue

The only way in which I even remotely resemble Martha Stewart is weekday meal planning - no, I’m not smoking my own lox or carving radish roses, but I’ve learned to prep dinners in the morning, so on hectic days of driving kids to activities until dinnertime, I have something ready to heat up. This is less a display of organization than a bribe to myself (if I get through the hellish afternoon, I’ll actually have a dinner I enjoy instead of stale leftovers or take-out I can’t… Continue

Kate has some great tidbits for travelling with kids (hers are ages 1, 4, and 10) and I mope a lot. You won't want to miss it. Other than that you will find recipes (good food, bad pictures), fun youtube clips (that are family friendly), design ideas, parenting tips (and/or a homage to our dogs), and craft ideas for you or your kids. We are easily amused.

This week, I decided that I just need to make more inexpensive meals. I study cookbooks, talk to friends, check out recipes online. I have tried to spend an emergency meal plan like it has been suggested on particular sites. I can never seem to do it. I think prices are more expensive here in Massachusetts.
I bought a turkey and a family pack of hamburg. Of course with the turkey, I got nice hot turkey sandwiches for a Saturday night supper and a huge pot of soup. So there are two meals.… Continue

Gardening can be super fun for the children and the adults. Hard work does pay off when you use some little mommy techniques. I did alot of gardening for my mom when I was young and the work was awful.
When I grew up I thought Id never put my kids thru that. Then two years ago I decided I wanted a garden. I wasnt gonna make my kids work in it though. That year I learned alot.
There are many things about children and the most thing I can think of is… Continue
