“Have children,” they said. “It will be fulfilling,” they said.
And so you did.
It was nothing at all like the books said. So much harder than your mom made it out to be. And way more amazing than anything you had ever done before.
These are a new twist on an old family favorite of mine. I love to bake cookies for the holidays and this organic, gluten-free version of a classic chewy holiday treat has all of the flavor and way less of the guilt.
This is a great cookie recipe to make with your kids and perfect for those all-too-popular cookie exchange parties. They are so delicious and moist (thanks to the coconut oil), no one will believe you when you tell them these cookies are gluten-free.
One evening at dinner, when my children were particularly whiny and ungrateful, as children have a tendency to do sometimes, I decided to have everyone in the family say what was their favorite part of the day. We went around the table, and if anyone slipped into a complaint or a comparison instead of putting forth a positive thought, they had to start over. And the favorite part of the day cannot involve something that could hurt another’s feelings, such as, “My favorite part of the day was when Sarah left,” because siblings are prone to this type of thing.
One year, my sister and I made salt dough ornaments with our mom. Homemade snowmen, Christmas trees, stars and candy canes adorned our tree that year. Those that survived two small children and a mischievous cat became a part of our tree decor for years to come. It’s one of my best childhood holiday memories.
Lacquered nails is a regular part of my look. I love to have that pop of color or create a dramatic effect with my manicure. The thing is, nail polish, and most of the products that go along with my beloved manicure, are full of nasty chemicals and harmful toxins. So what’s a girl to do?
Luckily, we don’t have to give up our fancy fingers. There are plenty of awesome companies making safer versions of our favorite nail care products. From cuticle cream to polish remover, these products will give do the same thing as those hazardous salon products, without the health concerns.
Chocolate is a serious weakness of mine. It’s a little scary how a small square of that indulgent, rich deliciousness can change my entire mood. Turns out, I’m not crazy, there’s actually a physiological reason (I KNOW, I was relieved, too!), as recent studies have found that eating dark chocolate in moderate amounts reduces cortisol and catecholamines, the hormones related to stress and anxiety.
