Olive Oil and Ricotta Pound Cake

I recently spent a glorious 10 days in Italy. It was truly life changing. Relaxing. Rejuvenating. Inspiring. I went to Rome for 5 days with my best friend and then went on to Perugia to meet with my Mastermind group. It was the perfect mix of work and play. I was ready...

Social media etiquette for parents

One of the most important things parents can do to keep their children cyber-safe is maintain a relationship defined by open communication, which requires a culture of transparency and respect for personal boundaries.

At This Moment, She’s Right Where She Needs To Be

It seems like it was just yesterday. It was, in fact, nearly the same time of year. The garden bloomed profusely, and she was just finding the confidence to let her feet take her where she wanted to go. We were never so happy that Fisher Price created a structure sturdy enough to endure...

Banana Bran Muffins

Start A Vegetable Garden for $25

Apr 17, 2014

I hear this a lot: “I want to start a vegetable garden, but it costs too much money! The raised bed kits in the catalogs are $70. And that’s just for the bed, not the soil or plants!” You don’t need to spend all that money for a few pieces of wood. For $25,...

How?

How?

She turned to me at dinner, her eyes locked on mine. Can I tell you something, Mommy? Her face, so vulnerable, so engaged. Every night, after you and Daddy tuck me in, I sit up in bed, I fold my hands and I pray. It’s funny how you think you know everything there is to know about your...

Lemon Cupcakes with Raspberry Vanilla Yogurt Frosting

Light lemon cupcakes piled high with creamy pink vanilla frosting. With how sweet they taste, you’ll never believe these elegant cupcakes are secretly skinny!     On Sunday afternoon, I tore myself away from baking and dashed across town for a quick trip to Target to stock up on a few essentials. I only...
