Book #2: The 21 Day Sugar Detox

I just went through a mental argument, telling myself that a cookbook shouldn’t count toward my 100 book goal, but then reminding myself that I read cookbooks cover to cover, so therefore it counts.  Then I told myself that it’s lame to blog about it, but I told that Negative Nellie voice to get over myself and just write something down, you stinker.  I’m very nice to my inner critic, as y

What’s Eating Your Child?

I'm a bit obsessed with food, but not in a bad way.  It's more like the whole process of making, growing, preparing, and eating food is utterly fascinating to me.  I think it's because I discovered food later in life.  Yes, I have eaten food my entire life, but I was a terribly picky eater as a child, then became a young adult who found the whole process of preparing food to be tedious and "dom

Cooking with Kids

Thanks to my friend, Christina, I'm completely devoted to Family Fun magazine. I started subscribing to it back when my oldest child was too little to enjoy any of the crafty/cooking/game ideas in the magazine. Now that my kids are big and perfect for the articles in there, I find that I can retrieve some of what I've read over the many years of subscribing and not feel completely inept. I use

I didn't bother to learn baking from my m

Yum-O!

It's probably completely bizarre, but I like to watch the Food Network while I run on the treadmill. Think of it as having something good to run for, I guess. Also, there's not much else on that time of day when you don't have many channel options to pick from. Plus, if I'm lucky, I'll hit a Rachael Ray rerun. You know, "30 Minute Meals with Rachael Ray" the awesome show that is actually fun t

Deceptively Delicious

Every time I say this title out loud, I want to sing it like from the old Lucky Charms commercial. "It's deceptively delicious!" Then I jump up in the air and click my heels together. This book was the most delightfully covert thing I've read lately. You'll have to go read the wikipedia link I put there. It's tickles me to no end to apply that to feeding my children. I have a secret passion
