Tart & Tasty Homemade Cranberry Sauce

Are you like me and making quick dishes the night before the big celebration? Some holiday dishes can be made ahead of time and some are better fresh. Heck, some are even best a few days old. Our family makes a Greek salad each year that I swear is much better when it is about three days old. One holiday item that is easy to make ahead is your cranberry ….

Babywearing Is Not the Greener Option,  Just An Option

Time for more confessions of how NOT-a-perfect-earth-mama I am. Babywearing is not the greener option, it is just an option. There, I said it. I love wearing babies. My mom was a fan of babywearing. Most people just used the same crotch dangler carrier sold at Sears back then, but the sentiment was the same. I wore my two youngest siblings quite a bit out on walks and shopping trips. ….

10 Weeks Old

Mory is 10 weeks old! She is up to 12 pounds now, which is a little on the light side considering she was over 10 pounds at birth. She is a good eater though, so I guess she’s just a slow gainer. I did finally succumb to supplementing though. My milk supply has been horrible. My supply goes up if I eat a bunch of carbs, but that makes me ….

Chocolate Chocolate Pumpkin Brownie Cookies with Cinnamon & Sprinkles

Are you sick of pumpkin yet? Oh come on,, it isn’t even Thanksgiving yet! One flavor combo I never really thought sounded all that great was pumpkin and chocolate. That is, until I tried cinnamon and chocolate and then changed my mind about chocolate mixed with spices. The thing is, when you mix chocolate and pumpkin, the pumpkin flavor kind of gets lost, but it adds such a great texture. ….

Dark & Chewy Pumpkin Molasses Cookies

My husband attempted to grow his own pumpkin patch in our yard this year. However, we got the seeds in the ground about two months too late, and the rabbits and squirrels kept ripping up the plants. It turns out most plants don’t do well if they are ripped up and replanted every day. Our dreams of multitudes of heirloom pumpkins were dashed, but we have some thoughts on strategies ….
