If I could pick only one topping for frozen yogurt, it would be gummy bears. My whole life I’ve loved gummy everything. Bears, worms, sour… (sour patch kids were THE BOMB!). Now there’s even “life saver” gummies and “jolly rancher” flavors too. Oh my. I’m not sure whether to rejoice at the myriad of gummyClick to Continue »
It’s been one full week since my kids started school and oh.my.goodness. No amount of training or mental preparation could prepare me for the mother of all wrenches in your real food plans – a.k.a. packing school lunch. I mean, I THOUGHT I was prepared. I knew it would take work, some planning and aClick to Continue »
As the summer draws to an end, back to school activities are at the forefront of my mind. Of course, my kids don’t go “back to school” since we do homeschool preschool (find out how we do it!), but that doesn’t mean we have to miss out on all the back to school fun. WeClick to Continue »

Confession: I love spaghetti o’s. The kinda cheese-y but definitely tomato-y sauce with all the fun little noodle o’s that would nestle into each other… I used to pick out all the tiny o’s and eat those first. Unless there were meatballs. Meatballs trumped all the noodles.
Back when I read the Healthy Lunchbox by Katie Kimball, I was intrigued when she mentioned that her kids were responsible for emptying their lunchboxes every day. My kids were still homeschooling at that point, but we made the switch to public school a couple months later. Mornings found me scrambling for clean lunchbox containers. NotClick to Continue »
School lunches. Dun dun dun… They’re a plague on parents far and wide. Deciding what to pack, finding the time to pack, fighting the kids on what you just packed and potentially losing your pretty reusable containers to the school trash can. The whole thing is battle I’d rather not fight, but the kids haveClick to Continue »
