Red Prince Apples: Available For A Limited Time!

In my house I hear one thing over, and over again.  “Mom, there is NOTHING to eat!”  Gah, these words have even been heard when I’ve just completed a $200.00 grocery shop.  Frustrating?  Oh yes, and I know I’m not alone in this phenomenon.  The hunt for the perfect after school snack can be a […]

Time To Get My Swagger Back!

For the last 13 plus years I have been so careful with every little thing in my daughters worlds.  Not Bubble Wrap careful, but normal careful.  I shop organic when I can, try to limit the sweets that go in their little mouths, and introduce all foods in moderation.  I ensure they get enough fresh […]
