Star Wars Spatulas (and more) at Williams-Sonoma

I’m guessing some of you may be interested to know that Wiliams-Sonoma now carries a whole line of Star Wars kitchen paraphernalia — everything from spatulas to cookie cutters to pancake molds. Plus, it looks like a lot of it is on sale now here. Thanks to my friend Jean who bought this spatula and […]

Fourth of July Tie Dye

Using instructions from our Handy Dad book and a $4.99 blue and red tie dye kit from Michael’s, the kids and I tie-dyed some old white t-shirts for the family to wear on the 4th of July. My hands turned dinosaur purple (couldn’t be bothered to keep the gloves on), it was 110 degrees out […]

Homemade Goldfish Crackers

I’ve been wanting to make these homemade goldfish crackers for a long time. (Okay maybe they’re goat and elephant crackers, but you get the idea.) Today I’m home with two kids with strep throat. So while they’re eating popsicles and watching Backyardigans, I’ve been whipping up these babies in the kitchen. I used the whole […]

Unicorn Party Planning

My daughter is very into a book series called Unicorn School. It’s kind of like Harry Potter, but for 5 year old girls. Less dark magic, more frolicking in the meadows. So with her birthday only 63 or so days away (when you’ve been counting the days for almost a year, 63 sounds REALLY close), […]

Make your own crispy taco bowls!

I was inspired by these mini crispy baked taco bowls to make my own big taco bowls for dinner tonight. First, I scrunched flour tortillas into cereal bowls… Then I baked them at 425 degrees for 4-5 minutes. After that, I took them out of the bowls and put them upside down on tin foil […]

Nautical Bow Bags

I used to make fun of my mom for reading all the “women’s magazines” she’d pick up at the grocery store checkout. I now admit that I love them. I know – that officially makes me a middle age mom, right? I was flipping through my July Woman’s Day and these nautical bow bags caught […]

Guide to a Summer that doesn't suck

I first learned about the website local Lily a few weeks ago on the now defunct Valley PR blog. Brandi Walsh and Beth Hickey, the gals behind the site, created a persona named Lily  — a stylish, social friend who shops, eats and lives locally. And lucky for us, our new friend Lily wrote a […]

Chili Mango Popsicles

I was so pleased with myself for buying some Tovolo popsicle molds.  I was sure my popsicle-buying days were over.  I’d be making all our popsicles this summer — experimenting with exotic recipes — blogging about my ice pop creations. But then I took my daughter to Trader Joe’s and she really wanted me to […]
