Across the country, thousands of schools, libraries, and community centers participate in fostering a love of reading by celebrating the birthday of Dr. Seuss. My son’s school is celebrating all week long with fun activities and asked parents to get involved. Being a fan of reading and especially Dr. Seuss, we decided to [...]
If you haven’t discovered the phenomenon of salted chocolate on your own, allow me to guide you for a moment through the logic behind it.
Do you love peanut butter with chocolate? Do you love pretzels with chocolate? Do you love salted caramel smothered in chocolate?
Of course you do!
Do you remember how as a kid everything looked better in cartoons? Strawberry-Shortcake-land food looked way better than the food in real life. That’s just a fact.
This made the reality of actual strawberry shortcake highly disappointing at times, particularly when the products used in recipes didn’t hold much merit.
Happy 2014 everyone! This year, we’ve decided to hold back on the pretenses and celebrate the new year the proper way.

It is officially the holiday season which could be surmised solely based on the amount of butter I use on a weekly basis. It’s kind of ridiculous but, also, kind of awesome. Whoopie pies are a necessity of holiday indulgence, naturally, and if you don’t agree, then you’ve never had one.

And well, let’s just say… it’s going to require some very slick and clever planning on my part to top this year’s birthday shenanigans in honor of next year’s celebrations (We’ll worry about that [...]
We’re already getting ready for that one and only time of year that freshly sharpened pencils and the sound of cutting construction paper make me smile joyfully. Yes, “Back to school” is mingling around us and I am keeping up the pretenses of summer mode for Trey’s sake until next week. You see, we don’t [...]
Note: It’s raining and cold here this Memorial Day weekend but I hear it should be nice by Monday (woohoo!). Save the grilling for then and try this simple and easy recipe for rice pudding tonight. It’s the only one I’ve ever used because there’s no sense in messing with perfection, obviously.
“Mommy, can we please make dinosaur cookies now and not tomorrow?” he asked with a big grin.
Looking at the grey sky and realizing I was out of distractions, I obliged.
This is Max; our little ball of perpetual exuberance and wonder who turned three a few [...]
