One of the most recent DIY projects that happened in my local crunchy mom group was DIY Vanilla Extract. This is a perfect hostess gift item to whip up for those holiday parties you’ll be going to or to have on hand when you need an impromptu gift. Everyone loves homemade edibles, especially when it involves the intoxicating scent of vanilla. […]

I usually make my own lactation cookies, but it’s always fun to try those made by someone else. […]
Despite a harsh winter on the East Coast, where I’m from, spring has finally prevailed. That means it is gardening time!
While the weather is still mostly cool, it is a great time to get in those cool hardy veg like spinach, broccoli, cabbage and peas. They can handle the cool nights and thrive in the gentle spring sun. […]

I LOOOOOVE ice cream. It’s one of my favorite desserts. I really love gelato and fruity types, so I have been dying to try this “breakfast ice cream”. Of course, I didn’t make mine for breakfast. I made it for dessert!! You can let your kids have it for breakfast EVERY morning and they will think they have the best mom ever. […]
We caught an upper respiratory virus that really kicked our butts this weekend. My husband and I usually escape most colds with just a sniffle, but not this time. I find one of the hardest parts about being sick is making meals for the family. At the same time, I worry about making sure we all eat well. […]

I’d already tried the milk kefir grains so when I heard that there was also WATER kefir grains, I was very intrigued! […]
Any time of day, even right before bed (but before brushing) if any of my 3 little ones ask for a carbonated beverage, I gladly let them have a full glass. Our “soda” doesn’t come in a can and it is actually a healthy drink! What am I talking about?
Water kefir! […]
Despite the fact that I try to limit my children’s exposure to junk foods, we still struggle with my oldest to eat healthy. Even fruit can be a struggle some weeks with him. Right now, as we are in between fruit seasons (apples are kinds mushy and summer fruits are too pricey), bananas are one of the few decent and cheap fruits. […]
