Fava Greens and Fava Beans

Sometimes I feel so incredibly small. Swallowed by the sea of information I attempt to swim in each day. The internet does that to me sometimes. Makes me feel even tinier in scope of the big picture.



I'm one of those types of people who keep turning around, mouth agape, ready to try something new that's caught my fancy. And yet, sometimes I don't feel like I'll ever master anything. I love sewing...but don't get around to it often. I love embroidery, but can't remember the last time I… Continue

Dynamite Dessert: Strawberry and Mango Delite

This was inspired from a delightful woman I met at the grocery store the other day.  She had a cart full of mangos.  They looked beautiful!When I asked her what she was going to with all of the mangos she said she uses them in many recipes and especially loves to combine mangos with mint.  She was right mangos and mint is perfect! We loved it. 

Ingredients

  • 1 lb Strawberries, chopped
  • 2 Mangos,…

Off Mom Betting

I think I’m going to start a new business. I’ll call it “Off Momma Betting (OMB)”. We can wager on all sorts of things. Which kids will wind up in jail, which ones will graduate, who’s going to wind up on Jersey Shore 2020. Short odds say little boy A will marry little girl B based on how hard she walloped him.
This is a brilliant idea. I’ll run it out of the PTA closet; we all secretly gossip there anyway. I mean seriously, when presented with 500 kids and 30 parents, there’s…

Recipe: Grilled Marinated Vegetables

Our review of fancy grilling gear this past week combined with the – finally – warmer weather got us in the mood to fire up the BarB. And I wanted to propose a super simple recipe for you. When I serve these marinated grilled vegetables, I invariably get “wows” and then get asked how I prepared them. They…

Grilling Gear You Didn't Know You Needed

 

Well, it’s been a long time coming but it seems that summer has finally decided to make an appearance. Among other things, that means BBQ season. For the purpose of this list, we assumed that you already have the essential tools (the tongs, the spatula, the basting brushes, the cleaning brush…). But what about some of these gadgets that merit an appearance at your next barbecue party. And, not that we mean to be stereotypical in the least,…

A Change of Routine

As the last days of school are gone, with three boys to thing about hosting all day, i had to think about my daily routine and what it was going to look like.  So far it's been 7a.m. wake ups, cooking breakfast instead of fast get out the door cereal, a hot lunch for 4 instead of the t.v. dinners for 1 and lots of interventions!  I thank god that summer is only two months long I don't know if any of us can handle any more than that!  I keep the boys up to date with daily school work while the… Continue

Savoring the Silence

The house is still.  The only noise I hear is the hum of the refrigerator.  I’m basking in the quiet and trying to make it last as long as I can.  Because…today is the last day of school.  A day I’ve been dreading more than a gynecological visit or a root canal.

Springtime is Garden Time

The transition time between the frigid, wet winter (yes, it gets cold and wet in Southern California too!) and the heat of the summer is, by far, my favorite time of the year. Growing up on the East Coast, spring came in spits and spats with the crocus bulbs blooming through patches of snow and the first robin spotted on the front lawn that looked like it had not seen the sun for months. But once the snow was completely gone and people braved the outdoors wearing only a t-shirt (even though…

How to Easily Teach Your Kids to Save, Spend, and Share Money

By Anne Carr 

The other day we were in Target and an automated piggy bank made by a big brand caught our eye. Our youngest daughter really wanted it! The piggy bank would count all of the money automatically as your child put more and more money into it. On one hand we thought it was…
