So, the other day at the grocery, I spied a box of, gasp, gluten-free granola bars.  Seriously, I remember 4 years ago, going to grocery stores and crying because I couldn't buy the easy things of motherhood like goldfish and cherrios, but now GF goodies abound.  Albeit, still with many strange ingredients, but at least there's options … [Read more...]

Last week, after I picked Monkey up from preschool, I took him on a date to see Disney's Frozen. Even packed a lunch to eat in the minivan. In ten degree weather. In Chicago, we get desperate this time of year, so it's my version of a polar vortex picnic. I think I cried nearly the entire movie. Well about, 75% of it. See, I haven't cried … [Read more...]

side effects of quitting coffee

There's nothing more in this world, that I want right now, to hoist you on my shoulders and carry you to the finish line.  Nothing more in this world.  I know the pain, the anguish, the worry, the late nights spent on google, I know it all.

Comfort food takes precedence, right?  Now that we've added grass-fed dairy back into our diets (can I get an Amen?), I've reintroduced my kids to some family favorites.  I grew up on the boxed powdered stuff.  Homemade mac and cheese is heaven in comparison.  I dreamed up this recipe, because frankly, butternut squash is the right … [Read more...]
