May the force be with you. And also with you.

May the force be with you. And also with you.

I don’t even remember what brought it up, the subject of girl toys and boy toys. My husband  and I were at dinner with our three sons, my cousin, his wife Emily, and their two daughters. The husbands were discussing whatever it is they discuss while Emily and I were talking about the older two […]

World’s Okayest Moms

World’s Okayest Moms

Can we talk about the anxiety that comes with Motherhood? The constant worry. The ever-present nagging feeling that you’re forgetting something. The second-guessing and wondering if you’re doing a good enough job, or if you’re completely screwing your kids up. The overwhelming love that can sometimes leave you breathless when you look at those little […]

Twins: Two for the Price of One!

Twins: Two for the Price of One!

Bullshit. Try two for the price of two. But if you’re pregnant with twins and starting your baby registry, you do not have to buy two of everything! Some things are necessary, that’s true. For instance, you’ll need two carseats. I haven’t figured out a way to safely stack babies in a carseat. You’ll probably […]

I know you must be thinking, “man, this woman REALLY likes yogurt!”

I know you must be thinking, “man, this woman REALLY likes yogurt!”

And you’d be wrong. I don’t like it all that much. Well, I didn’t until I learned to make my own. I never particularly cared for the sweet mixed with tart flavor combination of store-bought yogurt, but the great thing about homemade yogurt is that the tartness increases the longer you incubate it. So if […]

We are better than this. We have to be better than this.

We are better than this. We have to be better than this.

The recent violence in Charlottesville has once again stirred up the conversation on racism. It’s an uncomfortable conversation that brings with it feelings of anger, fear, sadness, and fierce loyalty. But nevertheless, it’s a conversation that needs to be had. Unfortunately, it also tends to bring with it political arguments. The reasons for this are […]

Homemade Yogurt, Part 2: Make it any flavor you want!

Homemade Yogurt, Part 2: Make it any flavor you want!

In my last post, I explained how to make your own yogurt using just an Instant Pot, a yogurt starter, and milk. If you’ve already attempted to make your own, you probably figured out pretty quickly that you can flavor it any way you want! So far, I’ve only made it as snacks for my […]

Introducing my latest obsession (and money saver!): Homemade Yogurt for the Win (I accidentally typed “wine” there, because habits)!

Introducing my latest obsession (and money saver!): Homemade Yogurt for the Win (I accidentally typed “wine” there, because habits)!

This is my second post in a row about the Instant Pot. I realize that may seem a bit…obsessive. And it kinda is, but in a healthy way. This thing does all the things: pressure cook, slow cook, saute, steam, sterilize… And it makes yogurt….delicious yogurt! And I don’t even like yogurt! My children, however, […]

Delicious and Easy Instant Pot Whole Chicken

Delicious and Easy Instant Pot Whole Chicken

In the days preceding and throughout Amazon Prime Day, there were a few deals on Instant Pots. Several of my friends took advantage of the sales and bought their very first IP, and I even bought a new one to replace the one I ruined by pouring chicken broth in it without the liner. Oops. […]

The month we decided not to spend any money.

The month we decided not to spend any money.

Y’all, I need to clean out my pantries. I need to clean out my refrigerators. And I need to clean out my freezers. All of them! I have 2 pantries, 2 refrigerators, and 4 freezers. And they’re all a mess! I love the extra storage space because I like to stock up on good deals […]

What’s up with all the Mansplaining, fellas?

This morning I cooked omelets in my waffle maker, something I’ve done many times successfully in the past. It makes a great finger food for the babies, and the whole family enjoys them. After realizing how many different things I could cook in a waffle maker, I decided I wanted a larger one with removable […]
