The ritual of preparing our own food is an act that may presently seem ordinary and unimportant. I strongly believe that in retrospect this daily chore will be sacred…I see my kids saying things like, “She didn’t….[blah blah blah], but she had dinner on the table e-v-e-r-y night.” I’m sure we all want to be […]

Is it Friday yet? Not because I love Fridays but I’m crazy over Saturday mornings. Not to mention that there is something besides going back to school that is very special about this time of the year…Tons of shows are coming back to TV like—Walking Dead! AHHH! #soexcited I’ve binge watched this show so many […]
I love going through the archives from the fall. Seeing little Dottie and Alice run through the apple orchard and making a mess in the house leaves the warm and fuzzies. How I will miss them this fall… Slowcooker Applesauce The first order of business is to make applesauce in the slow cooker. I’m usually […]
For a period of time, roughly between the ages of eight and ten years old, I had a rather unusual morning before school. I would get ready at lightening speed in order to have time to sit in a deli booth with my father and eat breakfast. This is one of the benefits of being […]

Those pesky devils…How can you sell someone a changing table and recall the pad that fits on top of it?! We’re on baby number three and that means we’re going to spend $35 on a changing table because I’ve never actually used mine in the past. The babes get changed on the couch, my bed, […]
I feel like I’ve been looking forward to the kids going back to school for a month now. Back to school not only means new afternoon routines of homework..[insert nervous jaw clenching], but it’s also a time that I get to go to the store and scramble for all of that extra “fun” that seems […]
All this recipe is, is a beautiful fresh creamed corn with the addition of fresh lima beans. Don’t scrunch your nose just yet! Fresh lima beans are surprisingly crisp with a serious lack of starchiness that you remember from your childhood. They are simply divine and if you get a chance to have some this […]
To make these doughnut holes look like ants you’ll need a cookie or Popsicle stick, black string licorice, and three glazed or plain doughnut holes. Gently place the doughnuts onto the stick. Make sure you don’t push the head all the way through. Tear or cut the licorice string so you have seven pieces about […]
We’re in full blown tourist season over here! These dang New Yorkers keep on coming and it’s made going to the beach a real nightmare. John and I hacked our way around this by going during the week after 4pm. This idea is one of those things that makes me want to bang my head […]
This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Pop Secret, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #pop4Fantastic4 http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV This DIY is a dream come true for my kids. They love necklaces, candy, popcorn, and watching movies. You’ll need dental floss and a needle. Afterwards, they […]
August: Everyone is just like “so over the pool and the beach” (I know—poor them right?) making it a perfect time for us to get out of town. Since we live a stone’s throw away from the shore we drove out to the county for a change of scenery. In these parts the best country […]
