Do I really need a reason to want a cookie? I say no. And an oatmeal chocolate chip cookie… well, they are deliciously amazing. They’re a family favorite. In fact, if I try to make “regular” chocolate chip cookies, my kids will inform me that I’ve forgotten the oats. And since my kids generally don’t […]
What if I told you there’s an online trap that’s so good that it’s snared countless thousands of business owners and bloggers? Well, there is. And it’s so effective that it’s a huge drain on productivity and bottom lines everywhere. What is it? It’s the SEO monkey trap. Now, because your business has to be online, […]
There’s nothing better than fresh, homemade bread… unless it’s also cinnamon swirl bread, of course!
Making a cinnamon swirl loaf isn’t as hard as it sounds, I promise. In fact, it’s not all that different from making homemade wheat bread. It just has a few extra steps.
Reality hit me hard after abdominal surgery. Suddenly, everything seemed impossible and I realized with new clarity why they call it your “core”. I know that moms joke, tongue in cheek, about how hard it is to maintain any semblance of balance between raising kids, caring for a household, and making sure everyone gets fed. […]
It doesn’t really matter what day it is… there’s just something about fresh, homemade, perfect wheat bread that makes me happy. It could be 100 or -20 degrees outside and it wouldn’t matter to me.

School is just around the corner, y’all. And with that, school shopping, school physicals and checkups, and school photos are just a blink away.

I have a confession. I severely dislike shopping. Don’t get me wrong. With the right company and a list, I can enjoy it for about fifteen minutes. After that? I’m ready to call it quits no matter what the status of said list is. (Don’t worry: food is kind of an exception. Because, well, food is […]
I know – it seems like Pumpkin and Curry shouldn’t belong in the same recipe. A few years ago, I would have believed you. Then I ate my sister-in-law’s soup, and I became a believer. We had house guests, so I asked her for the recipe or the website where she got it. She searched for […]
Several months ago, I became a mom for the fourth time. This time, to a beautiful baby girl. Growing up, I’d always thought I’d have all boys. Probably because I have so many sisters… (and I love them all dearly!) But for whatever reason, I had it in my head that I’d have four boys. And I […]
Today while the baby napped, I thought (for the eleven billionth time) that we should think about scheduling a family vacation for next year.
