Why I Love This Video & Know You Will, Too

This makes me happy for three reasons: It stars Esme and Scarlett, Ceri and Laura’s enchanting daughters. Not only do I think it’s pretty cool that Ceri and Laura get to work with their families from time to time, I find few things more enjoyable than listening to kids chat with each other, particularly when it pertains to a rather complex topic.

Spaghetti with Pancetta and Spinach

My life as a mother is definitely made easier by social media outlets like youtube, Instagram and Twitter. It’s also made a lot harder by those on-line distractions.

Video Interlude: Ceri and Laura make fish tacos with strawberries (really?!)

Did everyone receive our newsletter last week? (It’s never too late to sign up! Just scroll down a little and look to the right….)

Meal Plan July 4, 2016

Have you moved outside yet? We set up a table on our deck and even have breakfast out there this time of year. Whether you’ve got a back yard or just a little balcony like me, all these meals will taste better outside, I promise. And on Friday why not make it a full on picnic? We love heading to

Sponsored Post: Triple Flip Girls Clothes

My daughter Scarlett at a pretty young age started asserting her style. As a toddler, there was a long period of tutus and rain boots, then a no-pants, only skirts or dresses, pre-schooler stage and, if you ask me, a way too lengthy leggings only era in early second grade. Now, at 9, she still loves to establish her personality

Meal Plan June 27, 2016

You may think we’re throwing a curve ball into this week’s plan by including a slow cooker dinner but listen up! Summer is actually the best time to use our favourite appliance. It keeps the kitchen cooler than the stove or oven and that’s pretty much my top priority once we’re into July. Keep sharing your meal planning feedback with
