I find that my weekdays are pretty busy, but the weekends seem even busier! However, I try to make simple yet nutritious meals for my family.  This past weekend I was having my family over for brunch, so I decided to make a breakfast strata.  I could have made waffles, pancakes, omelettes, French toast, you name […] continue reading...

I was browsing the grocery store for oranges one day when I saw that they had Meyer Lemons for sale. It was much to my surprise as I had never seen them at my usual grocery store before. I debated whether or not to get them, but just couldn't resist. There are so many things […] continue reading...

I am always trying to find ways to sneak fruits or vegetables into anything and everything. My kids have gotten to the point where they will actually eat their vegetables now, but it is more challenging when we go out or when they are at school.  The fruits and vegetables sometimes still come back home in […] continue reading...

When throwing a birthday party, it's usually easier to keep things as simple as possible. For my nephew's first birthday, my sister couldn't think of a cute party favor that would be really easy to put together. She figured that most kids love bubbles so she bought enough Miracle Bubbles for all the kids coming […] continue reading...

For my nephew's first birthday, my sister decided to create a DIY Photo Booth. Given the fact that most the children attending were really young, organized play wasn't quite an option.  So she thought during all of the running around, parents might like to get photos with their kids, AND it would be a great way to […] continue reading...

Summer is here and it's a great time to start a business venture! I was recently talking with a neighborhood mom who wanted to start earning an income from home since her youngest child will be starting school in the fall. Joining Stella & Dot's team of Stylists would be a great opportunity for her since many people, […] continue reading...

My little girls love ladybugs. They have ladybug socks, ladybug clothing, ladybug hair clips and many other ladybug items. When I am trying to get a project done and need to distract them with something, I usually ask my husband to make some sort of craft with them. Since they get excited about ladybugs, we […] continue reading...

Organizing a kitchen has endless possibilities.  After deciding on which canisters to keep on the counter, and which ones to keep in the cupboard, labeling is the next task.  I didn't label my containers in the past because I knew exactly what was in each of them. The trouble was that no one else knew […] continue reading...

I made these cute cupcakes for my nephew's first birthday party. It was a "cute as a button" theme. I made both vanilla cupcakes and chocolate cupcakes. I took the easy way out and used instant cake mix, but made the icing from scratch. There was just too much to do, and I can handle […] continue reading...

Now that my girls are old enough to choose a few things to decorate their room, we have started to look at different kids room decor ideas. Their bedroom has been very plain with almost bare walls.  I didn't decorate it at all, (unless a pretty Growth Chart counts) which is considered my my friends […] continue reading...
