Well, not of energy, but of free time today. Yesterday, my girl didn’t nap at all, and nursed almost all day. Today she’s been sleeping almost all day. But who could resist the pun, when I’ve been playing with my serger today? I bought this serger based on its TONS of 4-5 star reviews, and


When I was pregnant, I felt like poo and didn’t want to do much of anything. Cooking, cleaning, crafting, anything. Now that this baby is OUT (and awesome by the way) I have renewed energy and motivation. And an excuse to craft. An excuse to craft a lot of things. You’ve seen some of the


Since Okra has been in season and in abundance at our farmer’s market, we’ve been eating it almost every week lately. And this way of making it is so easy and delicious (and NOT slimy – which I know you’ll appreciate if you’re like me and hate slimy okra) that this is how we’ve prepared

Coconut Cream “Health Fudge” In a bowl, mix: 1/2 cup honey 1/4 cup coconut cream concentrate 3/4 cup natural peanut butter 3 Tablespoons cocoa powder


Maybe it’s because we’ve been running around a lot more in the mornings, but Anneliese has been napping like crazy lately. Seriously, I have HOURS to get things done now! So yesterday I baked those banana nut muffins, and today I tried out a pumpkin recipe I had in my head. At first I thought


I love fall and fall foods, so I’ve been wanting to make banana nut bread since our chilly snap last week (though today was as hot as the dickens again). Pumpkin bread is around the corner, too. Since we had a couple brown bananas waiting for me in the fridge, I thought I’d throw together


International Babywearing Week starts today! I don’t have a huge touching story to share, and I can’t tell you that babywearing is central to my parenting thus far, especially since my daughter refuses to be worn inside the house (though on errands and outings she is happiest in my ring sling or my soft structured


This post is the third installment in my gWhiz! gDiaper series. In this one, I’ll introduce you to my changing station and procedures for changing a diaper.
