on Lent and social media and nursing my baby

There’s this commercial where an interviewer asks kidlets what’s better – doing one thing at a time, or two things at once. Here, take a peek: This breaks my heart a bit. May I share a secret with you? Sometimes I want to completely unplug and run...

on Weeknight Dinners: Herbed Parmesan Squash

OK, I promised another side dish recipe. This one got my mother – not a squash fan – to say, ‘I didn’t even hate it!’ =) Hi mom! It makes me look forward to this summer and fall, when our neighborhood farmers market will be heavy with...

on Weeknight Dinners: Buttery Scalloped Potatoes

I’m terribly boring when it comes to side dishes. I tend to choose from a handful of default options: frozen green vegetable, brown rice, green salad, couscous… the end. So I knew I had to try a couple sides from Gooseberry Patch’s Weeknight Dinners,...

on my OneWord365

I have this picture in my head of the girl I want to be. Words that describe her are cozy, confident, spunky, charming, honest, soft, comforting, sweet, perceptive, kind, fierce, smart. The kind of girl that places her hand on your forearm and says she’s...
