This month Sarah James and I are taking questions from our readers for our Mama Said series. This week’s question: do you do sleepovers and playdates with classmates? How about you? Do you allow your child to go on a playdate at the home of someone you don’t know well? Do you do sleepovers? How do MORE »
This month Sarah James and I are taking questions from our readers. This week’s question: how do you cope with those crazy hours between school pick-up and bedtime? How do you cope with the post-school hours? Do you have a routine? How do you handle dinnertime? If you have any questions you would like us to answer MORE »
Spring is in the air, and summer is around the corner. We have a couple long-standing traditions that involve outdoor grills and potlucked food. Being gluten-free, the rolls and pasta salads that permeate these events can be tough, so over the years I’ve come up with an easy, protein-packed salad that is great as a stand-alone meal or as a side dish.

This summer, I’m hoping to do a bit better about getting my kids out of the house. I’m hoping for a bit more beach time than last year, but one of the challenges is always the daunting task of packing lunches. It’s tempting to rely on pre-packaged foods for such outings, but we are really trying to reduce both our waste and the chemicals and sugar inherent in most packaged foods. This week I attempted to replicate one of my kids’ favorite packaged foods: the squeezable yogurt.
Last week I had the chance to attend the press junket for Marvel’s new Iron Man 3 movie. Attended by Robert Downy Junior, Ben Kingsley, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Don Cheadle, it was a fascinating conversation about the behind-the-scenes aspects of the movie. One of the question to the actors, however, shifted to talking about some MORE »
Summer is coming, and that means lots of sunshine and outdoor play . . . which in my house translates to hungry kids. I’ve been trying to strategize some easy, healthy treats.
