Dawn Chace

I am a 45 yr old  mom of 3 children, quasi-married for nearly 17 years and thoroughly enjoying the blogosphere. I keep a few blogs, but my family blog is what keeps me sane(ish) :)

Former breastfeeder, current homeschooler, co-sleeper and all around "weird" one of the family, I am also the oldest of 4, the youngest 2 being 13 & 14 years younger than me. 

Currently, I am a full time college student (distance learning), and hope some day to get a job at something slightly more prestigious than "you want fries with that?".

What's Your Favorite Blogged Recipe?

With BlogHer Food '12 looming one month and one week away, I really wanted to take the time to ask a couple of our speakers a question that I always ask food bloggers: What's your favorite blogged recipe? I find it so interesting to hear their wide and varied answers. I also ask it because I like to make new things, and who better to ask for a recipe than a food blogger! As such, for our BlogHer Food Bites this week, I have asked two speakers to share their favorites. Their answers are simply awesome....more
I absolutely love this recipe, and make it quite often: ...more

Dancing with the Stars Recap: The Season Premiere of Season 13!

It's lucky season 13, and we are in a brand new DWtS ballroom, complete with balcony tiers and a raised stage. We also have a set of stars that lack a certain level of luminosity and quite a number of new pros, so I'll be curious to see how the ratings do this season....more
I've given up on DWTS. It's so clearly become "Dancing with the People Who Are In Need Of PR" ...more
