Bagels & Crunchy Peanut Butter

April 19, 2013

Grains & Veggies

March 5, 2013

Maggie has declared March the Month of Macrobiotics. I’ve always been intrigued by the Macrobiotic lifestyle, and although it’s never something I could do 100%, I do like many of the principles.  So, I decided to partake and make more of an effort when it comes to meal preparation.  We still keep meals pretty simple [...]

Goodbye Boring White Onesies

March 1, 2013

Lou asked how I made the tie dye onesies for the baby shower last weekend.  Lou, this post is for you. A friend of mine had a hard time finding plain colored onesies for her son and decided to make her own using Rit Dye.  Using her idea, I simply wrapped rubber bands around my [...]
