Food For Creating Hygge

Even with the promise of Spring down the road a bit, Winter is still just not giving up.  Many of us, especially those of us in the north are thinking about warm- weathered spring breaks.  But, in-between hopes of spring and vacations, we still have to... survive. In Minnesota, there are many days where the light is bright but the sky is opaque.  Just now, out my window such an atmosphere is flittering snow that is dancing through the air and landing on frozen ground.  This is a day to keep Hygge in mind. Hygge (prounounced … [Read more...]

The Day You Wake Up and Realize…

The night before, I knew something was brewing. My 16 year old son (AKA Baker Boy) was clearing off my dining room table and beginning to "re-tablescape". He had scraps of fabric, tablecloths, candles and flowers out, arranging and rearranging. It was almost midnight. I gave him a hug and kiss and went to bed to leave him to his creativity. The next morning, with a the rattle and hum of a budding chef in the kitchen, my husband and I awoke. The pungent waft of dark, brewed coffee was better than any wake up call. I rubbed my … [Read more...]

LoveBomb Lasagna Style

Over the past few months, along with a few friends, we have been intentionally giving each other a weekly challenge. It's a simple challenge, one that pushes us to think outside of ourselves and consider others. It might be as simple as, "Offer to carry groceries for someone this week," or "Offer to clean a friend's bathroom." At the beginning of this exercise, everyone was invited to put a challenge into a bowl. The kids added their ideas, the moms and dads did too. This week we were challenged to, "Be open and aware of the … [Read more...]

Hot Ginger Tea & China

I haven't been sick in a really long time. I'm the mama of 5 kids after all and I have a killer immune system. So, when this mom goes down, it sends the house into a tail spin. The laundry begins to pile up, kids fend for themselves at meal time, my husband prepares dinner while playing guard, making sure my room stays quiet and uninterrupted. It creates as weird glitch in our somewhat smoothly run, daily routine. I know moms of all stages can relate. Now, usually when I get sick, I can kick a bug with a few good nights sleep. … [Read more...]
