Public Service Announcement

Do not buy this. If you buy this you will eat the whole bag during the ride home from the grocery store. Even if you tell yourself you are just testing one bite to see if it’s any good. By the time you spend 15 minutes shoveling it by the handful into your mouth, it […]

Picky Eater

The prompt I found for today was “is your least favorite food from childhood still your least favorite?” That’s a good question and maybe conducive to quickly typing on my phone while riding on a train (and not wearing my reading glasses – so I can in no way guarantee I am using the right […]

Don’t Hide the Real Cake

I always swore that was a piece of parenting advice that needed to be passed down somehow.  This is both one of those things-I-never-thought-I’d-need-to-say and one of those how-the-heck-didn’t-they-know things.
