Interview: Baby Cuisine Cookbook 6/3

Thursday, June 3rd I was able to sit down with Shane and Chantal Valentine, founders of Alina’s Cucina, and ask them about their new book "The Baby Cuisine Cookbook". It’s a beautiful book with a lot of recipes the whole family will enjoy, as well as babies from 6 months old. I tried their hummus and it was actually tasty with the olive oil, garlic, salt, and lemon.

Barbecuing 101

Sunny days are on the way - that means barbecues! We bought a grill last year on Black Friday (big sale day after Thanksgiving) and it lived all winter, unopened, in our garage. A couple weeks ago my husband decided to put it together. But what else did we need for him to become a grilling pro? Before we could have him grill our dinner there were a few things we needed to get first:

- a weather-proof cover

- a propane tank

- basic bbq tools are tongs, a meat fork, a spatula, a… Continue

Gardening, a new love?

Spring is here! Technically we are almost in summer but with the strange weather patterns it feels like spring just arrived. With that, my husband and I got this gardening feel surge through us. Mind you, we have never been the gardening-type folk. We both suffer from seasonal allergies and our parents enjoyed working in the garden so we never had to. So why start now?



Food has gotten more expensive these days, especially fresh fruits and vegetables. When you buy produce from the… Continue

Homeschooling 101

For various reasons, more and more families have opted to teach their children at home. Parents are dissatisfied with the quality of education in the public school system and concerned about the safety of their children. Here’s a brief summary based on my own experience with my daughter from kindergarten through third grade.

Repotting: Not as Hard as It Seems

Have you ever procrastinated about caring for your plants merely because

your didn't know how to do it? Well, that rang true in my case. I have

this house plant that my sister gave me, which my other sister had given

her. It is a beautiful, thriving plant but the stems are pushed all the

way to the edges. It actually needed to be repotted about 8 years ago

so I'm not sure how it has managed to survive this long.



I had no idea how to put it in a bigger pot… Continue

Is Partylite Worth it?

I love candles. They don't really add that much heat but that soft glow just makes you feel nice and cozy inside. All that mattered to me was that it looked nice and burned. About two years ago, my sister had a PartyLite party. Now I only use PartyLite!



The quality of the products and the customer service are unmatched. The wax doesn't get hot enough to burn little fingers but the candles burn completely and cleanly (pure paraffin and… Continue

Anniversaries: Adding that Something Special

Occasions, such anniversaries, are meant to be special. How can you add an extra touch to make that particular celebration even more memorable? Here are two options: you can go to a posh restaurants and spend 2 weeks of groceries on one meal, or you can do it at home. Dining at home doesn’t seem very special, let alone romantic, especially since you do it practically every day. But, as I recently found out, there are ways to create a unique and… Continue
