If You Give a Mom a Coffee, She'll Want...

If you give a mom a coffee, she’ll want a donut to go with it. So she’ll stop by this great bakery on the way to the kid’s school drop off, get the éclair instead, and eat it in four bites.

Rainy Days & Mondays Always Get Me Down

Blah. It’s raining today, and it’s hot and uncomfortable inside Glo-Worm’s house. What do you do all day when it’s pouring rain and you’re nannying?

After over 12 years of marriage, you kinda assume you know everything there is to know about a person. I however just found out that peanut butter cookies are my husbands favorite. I mean, I've made them loads of times, I just never knew they were his FAVORITE kind (next to snickerdoodles, which I did know he loved). There was only one thing to do after discovering this little factoid about the love of my life.......more

Almond shortbread cookies (perfect with ice cream)

Are there ever times when you are out to eat and you just want cookies for dessert?  You don’t want chocolate to kill you or cheesecake to cost you another 1,000 calories – you just want a sweet little nibble.  I feel that way often, especially after too many French fries.  And I found out recently I’m not alone. ...more

The Comfort Cookie

June 25, 2012 would have been my dad’s 77th birthday. He's been gone for almost a year. For the most part, I had a pretty good day. Of course, I had my moments of sadness. But the weather here was picture-perfect – “his” kind of weather. It is hard to be gloomy inside when it is so pretty outside. Plus, it was cool enough to comfortably make comfort food at the end of June....more
