There's nothing quite as festive in the fall as walking into a home that smells of apples and spices. You could achieve this feeling by making an apple pie. Or you could do what I do and put a pot of mulling spices on the stove!
Mulling spices are quite versatile in the kitchen and around the home. And in case you don't believe me, here are 5 ways to use mulling spices to spice up your life this fall.
Shopping for dads for Father's Day is a notoriously difficult task.
And whether he's a man who loves to drink out by the pool, relax with a beer on the beach, enjoy a quiet cup of coffee in the morning, we have put together a list of gifts that are as unique as his dad jokes.
So this year skip the tie and get him one of these rad gifts from a small business that are sure to knock his socks off.
I come from a family of teachers and educators, including elementary teachers, special education teachers, librarians and school administrators. My husband is considered the black sheep of the family because he’s in healthcare. So Teacher Appreciation Week and end of school were always popular events in my house.
The value of education and and appreciation for educators was instilled in us from an early age. So while Teacher Appreciation Day may be on Tuesday, May 8th, I hope all the teachers out there know how much they are loved and appreciated all year long.
Baby's firsts are always special, and that first Easter basket is an opportunity to celebrate spring, new beginnings and that sweet baby of yours. I always have fun shopping for Easter baskets for the boys and put a lot of care and thought into their first Easter baskets (for the toddlers now it's mostly from the Target Dollar Spot, but hey they like it!).
Below are 10 of my favorite items for baby's first Easter Basket.
While I'm not a mom to girls, I still view my role as a boy-mom as important in the fight for women's equality.
As parents it is our responsibility to raise good humans. Not only is it up to us as parents to raise the next generation of strong, confident women, but it's also up to us as parents of boys to raise compassionate boys who believe in the radical notion that women are equal to men (i.e. feminism).
We hope you are ready to celebrate Galentine's Day with your favorite gals!
Wait you haven't heard of Galentine's Day?
It's the fun, feminine, festive take on Valentine's Day, coined by Leslie Knope of Parks and Recreation. It's a celebration of the ladies by the ladies.
If you've been to the farmer's market recently, you know there are a couple prevalent fall crops here in Northern California, including persimmons, walnuts, apples and pomegranates. Now all of these ingredients go great in a salad (and I have some delicious fall salad recipes), but during this cool time of year I'm frequently in the mood for something that will warm me up a bit (and that certainly isn't salad).\
So if you're doing some holiday entertaining this year and want to serve a drink that utilizes some winter farmers market ingredients, look no further than this festive Holiday Mule.
