This A to Z post is a little different from the previous ones. And a little bit longer. Sorry. Recently I came across a website called The Giving Table with an initiative entitled Food Bloggers Against Hunger. Their event actually took place yesterday, April 8th. (Forgetting that we don’t post on Sundays, I mistakenly planned … Continue reading
We hope that our readers who celebrated Thanksgiving had a good one, and that all of you are enjoying what’s left of November! Sorry we haven’t been around much, but life gets in the way of blogging sometimes! This seems especially true during the holidays. Rather than leaving you hanging, I’d love to share a … Continue reading
It’s sort of an in-between time where we live. The leaves are just starting to change color, and we still have afternoons with temperatures in the 70s. We certainly hung on to summer with all our might, but I know that the chilly, shorter days are just around the corner. In the meantime, right now … Continue reading
It’s only a few more days until the official start of fall, my favorite season, hands down. Growing up in New England, most of my favorite memories involved colorful leaves or Halloween or apple orchards, and I actually looked forward to going back to school! The air was crisp and notebooks were brand … Continue reading
Welcome to Friday Fun, a bit of nonsense or lighthearted discussion in anticipation of the weekend. This week: more than you ever wanted to know about what I eat for breakfast. True story: About two years ago, I was shopping at a local grocery store, not having a great time because I had gone there … Continue reading
It’s a late post, but it’s still Friday in some locations, so here comes the Five on Friday for this week: “Summer Indulgences” (or “Five Things That I’m Obsessed With at the Moment”) Drinking iced coffee. Hazelnut-flavored “brew over ice” K-Cups, to be specific. I’ve got the technique down: Brew it hot on the 8-oz. setting … Continue reading
I buy organic and natural products when I can, because over the years I have learned a lot about their benefits, and I’ve read some horror stories about conventional products. I’m pretty certain that some serious health problems I’ve experienced were brought on at least in part by things like chemicals and hormones in our food. As a mom, I … Continue reading
Some of the best things in life are free: a lover’s embrace, your child’s giggle, your mother’s comforting hand. But try to find a decent tortilla chip that won’t break the bank! Xochitl (pronounced “so’ cheel) brand chips are not economical. A 16oz. bag at the local grocery runs around $5. But ohhhh… they are … Continue reading
Close your eyes for a moment and think back to when you were a kid. Recall the dinners you ate with your family. Now, what color or colors are most vivid in your memory? Chances are, the colors you see on the table when you’re remembering these dinners represent the foods you were most commonly … Continue reading
I’ve mentioned that I read Jen Hatmaker’s new book “7: An Experimental Mutiny Against Excess” after reading some of her blog posts and identifying with her shock and frustration about how materialistic and self-indulgent we are in our everyday lives. Reading this book in the new year was a great way to get motivated to do some … Continue reading
