This time of year, our blender takes up permanent residence on the counter. We have a couple of jars and there is literally always one sitting next to the sink drying because we use them so much. Smoothies for breakfast, sometimes for lunch, too.  Snacks, protein shakes, and milkshakes at night.  We definitely love blending…

Which means that for families, there’s more swimming, popsicles. sleeping in, later nights, grilling, fighting, declarations of “I’m soooooo boooooored!”, and kids asking every 15 minutes if they can have a snack. So while summer is…

What we’re doing here is slicing…

Growing up, after dinner was over, the rule was that everyone always pitched in and helped clean the kitchen. And I hated it. (Turns out like most things my parents made me do as a kid that I hated I grew up to thank them for, except for the whole if-I-sleep-with-my-socks-on-my-feet-will-fall-off thing.) My dad was almost always…

Slime is an epidemic sweeping the nation, causing parents to acquire obscene quantities of Elmer’s glue and congregate, mumbling incoherently,…

Several years ago, after the birth of my 3rd baby, a good friend brought over dinner with the most amazing enchiladas.  They were some of the best I’d ever had- just how I like them, with perfect flavor, cheesy but not too cheesy, lightly creamy insides and an incredible sauce.  I promptly texted her and…
