Tips to Prevent Getting an Infectious Disease While on Vacation

Dr. Brent W. Laartz thought he was in for the ride of his lifetime when he set out on a horseback riding excursion in Costa Rica.

Admittedly younger and more naïve than he is today, Laartz – an infectious disease specialist and author of the book How to Avoid Contagious Diseases…

My Kids Are Eating Out of Boredom!

Two weeks ago, we went to the beach for a week, and my children would barely eat.  We were busy swimming, boogie boarding, sight seeing, and golfing.  Since we have been home, the weather has been pretty pitiful, so we have all been stuck inside.  I hate the word bored, but they are bored!  When they are bored, they tend to eat more.  Kate is eating every 30 minutes, and claims she is starving!  In addition, Cam has been sleeping in, so he wants to start the day with cereal or pancakes, even if… Continue

Make A Little Summer Magic

Cheers! Summer is officially here. And based on the weather here, summer didn't want anyone to forget it.



It was H-O-T all week.



After weeks of back and forth warm-and-then-cold-rainy-days, summer is here full throttle. And I'm excited that our tall, seeding grass will die back soon, so I can perhaps breathe clearly again. Sniff sniff.

Because Kids Can Be Crabby

 As my kids grow older, I'm becoming a sucker for anything that measures how little they are at this stage in their lives.  I love crafts that use their finger or handprints, like here and here.  I have their infant footprints framed in my bedroom.  I imagine that twenty years from now I will cherish all things that…

Camp Cormorant

As I drive Elliott and Hunter around to their various camps this summer, I am reminded of the summer of 1988.  The summer I was a camp counselor at Camp Cormorant, on Big Cormorant Lake in Lake Park, MN.

SPF (Stupidity Protection Factor)

I know I only post a small photo of myself on this blog. I’ll get all high and mighty and tell you it’s because I want my creative words to strike awe in your heart. Or the tried and true cliché that words are my most powerful tools.
In reality it’s cause I don’t want you all to be jealous of my fabulous sexiness. If Shakespeare was still hanging around he’d write sonnets extolling my beauty. I am a true rose amongst thorns.

 

Then the most amazing thing…

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,…

On a hot summer day, there is nothing better than a cold, juicy, slice of watermelon!  I am pretty sure I could eat my weight in watermelon!  This past weekend, we went to a cookout at a friends house, and at the last minute, I decided to slice up the…
