today's very important production aid

Are You a Pizzaholic?

My mother-in-law has been visiting and we were all at a complete loss for what to make for dinner for the last night of her stay. “PIZZA!” Athena and Etani shouted together. “Pizza sounds good,” James and his mom agreed. “I DO NOT WANT PIZZA!” Hesperus, 10, said “Pizza is, like, so boring. Pizza is stupid. I hate pizza.” We ordered two extra large pizzas. James ate a hundred pieces. Then for good measure he ate five more right before bed. At 4:00 a.m. when the baby woke up to nurse, James was awake. And groaning. “My... read more

Are Your Kids Eating Secretions From the Anal Glands of Beavers?

There’s been more candy eating and gum chewing in our house this week than after Halloween. Partly because of the candy throwing at the July 4th parade in Ashland and partly because my mother-in-law was just here for a visit (note to Susan: this is not a criticism of you in any way. We had a wonderful time and want you to come back soon). My kids aren’t just swallowing loads of refined sugar (linked to the huge increase of juvenile diabetes among children in the United States) and hydrogenated oils (so taxing to liver, heart, and other organs it’s... read more

Another Reason to Feed Your Kids Organic Food (be forewarned: this post is a rant)

A long-term study of pregnant women from the Salinas Valley in California shows that expectant mothers with high levels of pesticides in their bodies (measured by urine samples) are much more likely to have children with Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). There was a 500-percent increase in attention problems in 5-year-olds whose moms had had the highest levels of pesticides in their bodies when they were pregnant. These findings add more evidence to another study, published in the journal Pediatrics in May (read more at Time.com)... read more

chicken, little

So, I’ve really been trying to stretch my grocery dollar. I can be guilty of spending more on recipe ingredients than I would on going out to a restaurant. Lately I’ve been trying to see how little I can spend, and I’ve even come back to clipping an old college love, coupons.  Lately, I buy one package of boneless chicken thighs and make two dinners out of them. You can also use chicken breasts, or tofu. I know chicken breasts are more popular, but I prefer the moistness and tenderness of dark meat. Saturday, we braised the chicken in a mixture of... read more

A few of my (current) favorite things:

  • by admin

Teeccino, Chocolate flavor. It’s like drinking a doughnut. A no-sugar added, herbal, liquid doughnut. I mean this in the best possible way. It also reminds me of General Foods International Coffee commercials…that’s the feeling I get drinking it–without actually imbibing crappy, Euro-fetishizing, chemically laden, processed junk. It’s marketed as a coffee substitute. I actually really just like it for what it is (especially since I drink coffee already). Mung beans. About 15 minutes after I eat them, I get the most amazing feeling of well-being. I boil... read more
