An easy recipe for moist banana muffins studded with juicy strawberries. You won’t miss the fat in these lightened-up breakfast treats!     My first morning on our Tahoe family vacation last week, my eyelids groggily peeled open as my alarm sang out its annoying tune right next to my ear shortly after the sun...

Clarifying key concepts for cyber security: Explaining brave and risky

Now more than ever, children need to be encouraged, instructed and inspired to think for themselves especially when they are feeling pressure to go along with the group dynamic that is unkind or dangerous.

Baked Chocolate Croissant French Toast

Making french toast one piece at a time is so last year. Baked French Toast is where it’s at. Especially when you use Croissants for the bread…and add chocolate chips!

Imagine if all the people tried not to be dicks

Imagine if all the people tried not to be dicks

So the other day I was at Costco. For our overseas readers, Costco is grocery store on steroids. Everything in is it huge, bulk, wonderful. I love Costco. It’s very American.
