It’s hard to believe, but it’s almost Valentine’s Day already! Rather than send your kids to schools armed with pre-printed cards for classmates, why not let them make their own? Or better yet, invite a few friends over and host a Valentine’s Day Crafternoon. Continue reading
Just as I was about to press the button to order Journey’s last few Christmas gifts, she walked in the room. As I fumbled to switch screens on my laptop, she mentioned that she wanted to add bff’s to her list. Naturally, I didn’t know what the hell she was talking about. Is it a bff necklace, a doll, a game—I had no clue. She tried to explain something about an egg and a frying pan, but I wasn’t getting it.

In case you are in the same boat, I put together this list of fab accessories and trinkets to serve as gift ideas for girlfriends, sisters, moms—and me! And they are all under $100! Continue reading
Since today is National Cookie Day (yes, there really is such a thing), I decided to try a new cookie recipe. I made them last night and sent them to school for Journey’s class to enjoy.
I love a good deal as much as the next guy but I refuse to buy into the madness that Black Friday has become. I’d much rather catch the sales on Cyber Monday, as I jump at any opportunity to shop in my pajamas. Here’s a list of some of the deals for online shopping tomorrow: Continue reading
Since the recipe for my Sweet Potato Cornbread was such a big hit, I thought I’d post the recipe for my Sweet Potato Biscuits. These sweet buttery biscuits are a great alternative to the usual dinner rolls and perfect for breakfast or brunch as well. You can even save some time by making them in advance.
