Matching Holiday Pajamas for 2021

It's never too early to start thinking about your matching holiday pajamas.  I learned my lesson a few years ago when I waited until the last minute to find our seasonal pajamas. As a result, I ended up having to choose from whatever wasn't sold out.  It was slim pickings. …

Pumpkin Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting

This is a crazy recipe for me to post because I don't like anything pumpkin - pumpkin spice, pumpkin lattes, pumpkin pie, none of it.  My nose turns up to everything pumpkin except for one thing: these incredible pumpkin bars.  I know it doesn't make sense, but these pumpkin bars…

Best Spots to Relax at Disney

Disneyland is wonderful, but it can also be exhausting. Sometimes we need a little break from the crowds and craziness.  Let me clarify that I when I say "we," I'm talking about us as parents.  Kids, they're like energizer bunnies, they keep going and going and going.  I'm usually the…

Dyslexia Loves Company

School never came easy for my kids.  On our journey to understand why school was so hard for them, the day came when we finally received a diagnosis of dyslexia. It turns out that both of my children are dyslexic.  When we got this news, I assumed that all of…

Disney Girl’s Trip

Disneyland without the kids? It just seems so wrong. At least that is what I thought - until I tried it.   It's so wrong it just might be right! I just returned from my first Disney girl's trip, and there is just one word to describe it: magical. Going to…

Grilled Pineapple

How do you like your pineapple?  Most of the time I just cut it up and eat it, or add it to a fruit salad.  My family loves pineapple, but the last few times I've bought one it's mostly gone uneaten.  Since I hate wasting food, I thought that it…

Our Finely-Honed Smoked Old Fashioned Recipe

This summer my husband and I were able to, against all odds, sneak away for a kid-free night in Saugatuck, Michigan. While we were there, we happened to dine at a restaurant that featured a Smoked Old Fashioned on its menu.  This cocktail voodoo was unknown to us, a smoked…

Watermelon Mint SaladEats

Watermelon Mint Salad

Watermelon mint is a new flavor combination for me.  I'd never even heard of it until I had a watermelon mint flavored sparkling water.  As soon as I tried it I was hooked, and I knew I wanted more of that flavor combo.  Luckily, I had a watermelon in the…
