Over 30 and Making New Friends

Is it ever too late to have new friends? Especially if you are over 30 years old? I find it harder to make new friends now that I am older. I have tried to reconnect with old college friends, tried to reach out to people in new Moms groups, and introduced myself to neighbors. But […]

Chocolate Whipped Pudding Bars

In my opinion, Valentine’s Day should be about chocolate. Lots of it. So here is a super-yum chocolate-y recipe to (literally) whip up. It only takes about 10 minutes to prepare, but does need 4 hours in the refrigerator to firm up before eating, so take that into account. Makes about 24 servings, and you […]

Valentine’s Day can be stressful. Commercials for chocolate, jewelry, cards, and dinners can send the holiday into overload (both on your wallet and your blood sugar).

Snow Day Activity with Kids

With the bazillion snow storm upon us (and the gazillionth snow day), parents and kids are desperate for something to do that does not involve snow. Because let’s face it, how many snowpeople can one create in one winter? If we did one for each snow storm, it would look like an army of snowpeople […]
