Dummy, pacifier, binky, or what we called it, dubba. This isn't a post about why they are good or bad or evil or the best thing you could ever do for your sanity. Let me just say, I never expected MY children to have one, but they did. No biggie, the world didn't end. But… Continue reading Giving up of the Dummy
Those of you that know me, know that I completely love and adore River Cottage. It's hard not to love it! It's been a big inspiration on how I strive to live my life.

I'm a bit of a fan of snackie, salty, crackers and chips. I blame my darling mother for my addiction to chippies. All too easily a bag will disappear in a sitting. Crumbs poured into my mouth and everything. It's my Homer Simpson moment. Also, the boys love crackers, and having control over the ingredients… Continue reading Wheat and, even better, Rye Thins!
The boys are still slowly learning how to use their cups and dishes and utensils properly. It's messy business. But great for some sunny time spent outside.

Sheesh! Balls! Right. Mind back in the right.... Leftovers.We've been lucky the boys are ok with leftovers, but I feel bad making them eat things for lunch they may have had for dinner the night before. Not to mention, I get bored of eating the same things as well.One of the MANY dishes that Jacob… Continue reading Leftover Makeover – Risotto Balls
After the big pantry clean out of 2014, I found a lot of ingredients that I noticed hadn't been used in ages or just about to go off. Soooo..
