Can Easter be Sugar-Free?

As it turns out, you CAN do Easter without sugar. I love to make my kids baskets of gifts on Valentine’s Day and Easter. There are plastic eggs in these baskets, which I filled with treats, but no candy with refined sugar or corn syrup. I get them in bulk at the health food store: […]

My fantasy Halloween

  Matthew sent me this cartoon last week. I wrote back: “I wish!” If you’re a new reader, you might not know that I’ve tried lots of things to deal with this holiday. I love the costumes and macabre fun, and hate the candy. What has worked best for my family is that my kids […]

Birthdays don’t have to be corn syrup hell

This summer has been a whirlwind. Lots of activities and travel, and, oh I don’t even know why. BIRTHDAY SEASON has snuck up on me. That’s the three weeks of August where ALL FOUR of my kids seem to require some attention, gifts, and a party. The only pregnancies that “stuck” were the ones that commenced in […]

Need an event planner / customer service rep, up to 20 hrs/week

I hope you had a wonderful 4th of July! We are eating a watermelon a day around here, sometimes two. Not to mention the usual quart for me of green smoothie and 4 pints for the kids. They have to drink it in front of me, the two who are kinda non-compliant. I know, that […]

Happy Easter! (a day late)

You’d think after 3.5 years of blogging nearly every day, that I’d be thinking of blog possibilities in everything I do….but Easter got away from me without bringing this up in advance! Sorry about that if you were looking for ideas. These are some notes for next year. We had a nice day with sprouted-buckwheat […]

World-Wide Green Smoothie Detox starts Jan. 2!

How are you holding up against the gingerbread and butter tarts so far? What about those buttery mashed potatoes and gravy? Maybe you’ve been avoiding the bowls of salty, roasted cashews and chocolate-covered almonds, but MOST of us end up overeating during the holidays. Fortunately, January 1st comes quickly and is the ideal time to […]

do you “make” your kids finish dinner?

The day after Halloween, I posted on my facebook page that I paid my kids $20 for their bag of candy, like I do every year, and then I threw it in the trash. I got some indignant responses, saying, “Geez, at least give them to candy giveaway programs for the troops!” and the like. […]

Green smoothies for birthdays?

So my 12-y.o. was sitting here with me, excitedly planning her birthday party next month. Making a list of girls to invite, foods she wants provided. We’re doing “Café Rio” type salads, a big platter of pineapple (her favorite thing), and she has asked for . . . green smoothies. No lie. And this is […]
