Now What?

I didn’t mean to go AWOL for so long.  I haven’t meant to be social media missing for so many weeks and I am sorry. Life has a wonderful way of throwing you curve balls. I guess tons of behind the scenes work and suffering from a terrible case of ‘Mommy burn out’ wasn’t enough.  […]

Alone in a Crowd

This past weekend my family and I joined friends for the annual tree cutting.  Every year the same group of families go to the same farm and ride the hay ride out into the fields to pick our Christmas trees, cut them down and head to one of our homes for hot chocolate and lunch. […]

Radio Silence

I need to apologize in advance.  There is going to be ‘radio silence’ here for a little while while I work behind the scenes. As few of you know, this blog started innocently as a record for my kids…. a record of their childhood. ….hence the name of the blog Life: A Study…..in other words, […]

Knitting

I am knitting again….it’s my winter sport. For about 6 months of the year I knit. I am a good knitter, not a great knitter but I have gotten good enough to be able to design a few patterns of my own.  I have made tons of hats and booties for my own kids but […]

The Health Benefits of Using Cast Iron

Those of you with children will remember those first few months when you brought the first one home.  The auto-pilot daze you went into.  A survival mode of sorts.  Well, times that buy 50 and you have bringing home preemie twins with medical issues. It is possibly one of the worst ways to be welcomed […]

Chicken Marbella with a Twist

I have started to attempt to add small scale catering to my resume.  Crazy I know but with everything else that I am doing it makes some sense. And in truth, I have had some requests. So I thought I would try it.  I am probably more stupid than brave but then you are here […]

Pad Thai

My life is getting in the way of my life again.  I know I say this every couple of months, like I am surprised, and like I should’ve gotten it all under-control since the last time I felt it but the fact of the matter is……..it isn’t a matter of control but a matter of […]

November 11 2012

Guess where I’ll be on November 11th?? WRONG!?! I’ll be at The Gluten Free Garage….IN PERSON!! I know….you can’t believe it!  Meeting me in person and maybe even getting one of my business cards??…it’s a dream come true!!  And all the while finding great sources of Gluten-Free Foods.  It’s a day of legend making really.  […]

Allowed out in Public

Parenting Article November 2012 edition an article written for another publication Me and the cousin in Time’s Square’s bleechers My twins turned five in October.  It has been a long five years that has also flown by.  I still remember, like a dream-like-state, that first year.  The endless nights full of sleep deprived hallucinations, and […]

Creamy Zucchini Soup

The weather is getting cold, the seasonal vegetables have changed and the budget is thin.  After beautiful summer weather all through September, Fall rolled in with a vengeance.  It got cool fast and everyone got sick.  The last week has been cool rainy days that are overcast and dark.  My least favourite kind of weather.  […]
