Why I Love This Video & Know You Will, Too

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.

Meal Plan May 9, 2016

Hey Meal Planners, I’m back! The bulk of the photography for our next cook book is done so I’m back in the kitchen with you. I won’t lie, being on set is the most fun and taking home food you didn’t have to cook yourself (thanks food stylist extraordinaire, David Grenier!) is like winning the lottery. But I’m excited to
