When I went to Stonyfield Yogurt last summer, one of my favorite discoveries of the whole trip was their Oh My Yog Ginger Pear Yogurt. I can’t find it where I live. This was such a happy discovery and also kind of sad because the closest store that has it is 90 minutes away. So…

We’ve had a lot of treats around here like Apple Streusel Bars, Funnel Cake and Fried Peaches (!!) So I figured I should be a responsible adult and provide you with something a little more substantial and meal-like  (not saying fried peaches don’t make a darn good meal.  That was most definitely dinner that day.)  I’ve…

All summer, my kids ask for food all day long. And if they’re not asking for food, they’re asking about food. “What’s for breakfast?” (If you’re old enough to ask me, you’re old enough to make it yourself. I’m teaching my kids to be self-sufficient or something.) “What’s for dinner?” “What’s for dinner tomorrow?” They’re like my…
