Consistency in Parenting for a Respectful Toddler

Toddlers are nuts. Don’t deny it, you know it’s true. I firmly believe that they are smarter than they look, and are constantly thinking and plotting and planning exactly what moves will drive us batty to the extreme. And it works. B has been pushing […]

This is a very refreshing salad perfect for a summer evening! The dressing is so bright, and goes really well with a sweet apple. Even my carnivore husband comments on how flavorful this salad is! This recipe originally from myrecipes.com Print Recipe Lemon Chicken Salad […]

Green Bean Insanity

Green Bean Insanity

I don’t know about you (if you have a garden), but my garden is exploding right now! Not sure who’s great idea it was to plant the entire fence line in green beans… or to put 6 seeds in each mound… but it worked. And […]

I Am Good Enough: the first diaper

I love summer. And summer fun. And especially summer food! Zucchini is one of my favorite summer foods. Sure you can get them all year long, but nothing is better than fresh from the garden! We always seem to miss one. They hide really well […]

Chicken Avocado on Chips

Chicken Avocado on Chips

Last night I tricked the boy. I got him to eat actual real food… and he was happy about it too! Way before my hubby and I decided to have kids, we were watching and planning and talking. Deciding about how we wanted to raise […]

Baby Food… to buy or to make?

Baby Food… to buy or to make?

That is the question I asked myself almost 3 years ago, and again 3 months ago. There truly is no “right” answer or “best” way to feed your little one. The simple fact that you’re asking yourself that question shows that you’ll pick the “best” […]
