Whisked Away

A few months ago, my friend Kim spotted a Groupon for cooking lessons offered by a local chef, and sounded the alert. We got together a group of 7 girlfriends, and immediately scheduled our girls cooking night out. It was a good thing too, because Maggie Norris, the chef/owner of Whisked Away (that’s her up […]

The Giving Tree

My son’s elementary school is holding a holiday care drive next week, collecting food, clothing and diapers for a local non-profit. Today I went to his classroom and read the class the story The Giving Tree. I then talked to the kids about the spirit of giving and the care drive. I also brought in […]

Sweets for the Neighbors

In the past few months, we’ve gotten two new sets of neighbors in homes that had been vacant for some time. I’ve been meaning to drop off a little something to welcome them to the neighborhood. Once I even went to drop off some baked treats, but nobody was home and I didn’t want to […]

Gorgeous Fruit & Veggie Bar

I’ve long admired the crazy dessert tables at all the amazing parties in blogland — but deep down I knew I could never put up a huge table of sweets at a party and not have the other parents hate me. I remember when I wrote about Amy Atlas’ dessert tables, my aunt Lorrie Beth […]

Seeing Stars at IKEA

I’ve been to IKEA twice in the past week. It’s a bit of a trek, but one that I’m always happy to make. I was there to purchase a large quantity of RIBBA frames. I’m working on our preschool auction, and as part of our fundraising efforts, two mom photographers took a photo of each […]

Greentainers

I know I can’t be alone in my search for the perfect BPA-free/eco-friendly/leak-proof/easy-to-open  lunch containers, right? A few years ago, there weren’t a lot of options. These days, there’s really no excuse for blazing through fitsfulls of ziploc bags — which I was very guilty of until recently. Now my cupboards are stuffed with a […]

I love making breakfast for dinner.  I have this baked french toast in the oven right now. Thanks to my friend Erika for this quick, easy and delicious recipe. It’s a good one to remember for when you’re having people over for brunch too, because you can make it the night before, and then pop […]
