Gift Ideas for this Holiday Season

Fairly recently I started crocheting and sewing toys for my kiddos. Doing that gave me a new appreciation for people who handcraft. So much time, energy and love go into the making of handmade toys, and no two are exactly the same. Of course, they don’t necessarily have to be sewn or crocheted. A friend […]

In Need of Snack Help

Several times a week I pack up the kiddos and bring them to work with me.  On mornings like today I draaaaag through the morning, unable to bring myself to get them out the door.

This is a guest blog post written by Jaime-Ann Laidlaw of Family Foodies. The Crock Pot. Many of us remember them from our childhood.

Stressed Out About Dinner? Try Pocket Menu Planning (Review & Giveaway) {closed}

Planning for dinner drives me crazy.  I finally started planning our meals for the week at the beginning of the week, and it saves a lot of time.  We also (finally!) started planning our meals around the sales in the grocery store circulars, and it really does make life easier.  The sales often inspire meal […]

What’s For Lunch? Try these Easy Quesadillas

I loathe lunchtime. Even more so than dinner time. What the heck am I going to make for the kids? I don’t worry to much about myself, I can eat (another!) bowl of cereal and be fine with that. But the kiddos tend to be picky….and very opinionated. So the other day I wandered over […]
