I love Florida blueberry season, which runs April til June. Thanks to the work at the University of Florida over the past three decades, we get to enjoy hundreds of small blueberry farms across Florida. Before you head out to the farm, weave in a learning opportunities into the adventure.  Reading “Blueberries For Sal” or [...]

Dinner Delivered: HelloFresh vs. Blue Apron vs. Farm-Haus

You are busy. Your kids are busy. Even your pets are busy. And you are hungry. You are ALL hungry…all the time. Even more than before kids, most of my thoughts revolve around food…what will we have for breakfast, do I have enough healthy snack options, will the kids eat dinner if I make it, […]

Trader Joe’s = Dinner Planning Made Easy – Part 2

Last November I wrote about several items from Trader Joe’s that have really helped me to speed up and simplify cooking dinner on work nights.

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! No, it’s a 19-month old!

Transform 2: Life after Fear

Today I began the first day of a two-week pre-op eating plan to reduce the fatty deposits on my liver. “Eating” plan is a misnomer. It’s more like a not-eating plan. It feels to a person who is accustomed to eating whatever she wants whenever she wants in any amount she wants like systematic torture. […]

All About ALDI

In the latter part of 2015, I was introduced to ALDI through a couple of my friends who frequent the Oviedo location on a regular basis. They raved about how much cheaper it was and all these great items they buy, even organic! I was intrigued, considering the new ALDI in East Orlando had just opened, so […]

Homemade Pumpkin Puree: Thinking Outside the Can

Fall is officially here! Especially with the last few days of brisk, cool weather! If there’s one thing that says fall… it’s pumpkins! Pumpkin lattes, pumpkin bread, pumpkin cheesecake.

Trader Joe’s = Dinner Planning Made Easy

This quote popped up on my Facebook newsfeed today: IF YOU WAIT LONG ENOUGH TO MAKE DINNER, EVERYONE WILL JUST EAT CEREAL. IT’S SCIENCE* At my house you can substitute “cinnamon toast” or “a bagel with cream cheese” for “cereal” and BAM! you have dinner. Have you ever noticed the disproportionate number of blog posts devoted […]
