On Friday, I rushed into my kids’ school to pick them up and passed a friend with her kids leaving. “We’ll be playing outside for awhile,” she said. I responded with something like “Fun!” thinking that I just couldn’t. In my head, I thought about I had to get back to work. I couldn’t lose […]

Lately, I have gotten really into smoothies and juices. Not in a juice-fasting or cleansing sort of way, but in a supplementing all the water I drink way. It’s nice to have something other than coffee and water once in awhile, and juices and smoothies are much better for you than soda. Plus they taste […]

Bobby Flay’s Banana-Milk Chocolate Crackle Milkshakes (and a Giveaway!)

When Will returned to school on Monday, he wasn’t as excited as usual. “I want it to be summer, Mommy,” he told me. After a week of spring break, the sun finally emerged on Sunday and we had an amazing day filled with egg hunts and family and good food. I totally understand what he’s […]

My journey to being healthier this year has meant giving up certain things like most fast food (good riddance), soda (though I indulge once in a while) and cutting way down on my sweets-intake. But one thing that didn’t make the chopping block? Coffee. I savor my morning coffee. It’s a daily ritual, often drank […]

If there is one thing my kids love, it’s options. So, when I suggested that we make our own smoothies this afternoon, they were both totally psyched. We were in the grocery store when I mentioned it and Will’s reaction was priceless. “Smoothies? Really?!? Yay!” Then, when they saw the array of ingredients spread out […]

Yesterday, we were just sitting down to breakfast when Paige said, “Mommy, water please?” (She’s two, so that’s a pretty darn good sentence!) Will echoed the request. Shawn laughed a little and said, “Kids who like water, well done, honey!” And really, they do love water. Paige will choose that above just about any other […]

The latest issue of Bon Appetit came in the mail on the same day that I happened to buy a bottle of POM (you know, that pomegranate juice that everyone seemed to be talking about and using, um, yesterday — yes, I am a little behind on that trend). So anyway, it just seemed like […]
