The Big Game is less than a week away... Who are you rooting for this year? I'll be honest -- I don't really have a horse in this race. Nothing could top this year's College Football National Championship anyway (and maybe nothing ever will)! BUT I'll still be watching, albeit mainly to see Katy Perry […]

Tomorrow kicks off the second half of our school year (assuming we get a lucky break with the winter storm headed our way)... I'm anticipating that some of my kids *may* have a a bit of trouble readjusting to our school day schedule, so my plan is to put together a fun on-the-go breakfast bar […]

Creamy Sweet Potato Soup Recipe

Growing up, sweet potatoes were rarely served beyond the candied version at Thanksgiving dinner -- and it's really a shame, because they are jam-packed with vitamin A in the form of beta-carotene, a powerful antioxidant. They are also a very good source of vitamin C, manganese, copper, pantothenic acid, and vitamin B6. Additionally, they are […]
