How to Sneak Veggies to Picky Eaters

I’ve heard all the advice. Give them a dip; kids love dip. Make a smoothie; kids love to drink from a straw. Put veggies in grilled cheese; kids love cheese. Add veggies to tomato sauce. My boys aren’t trying to hear it.

The love of their eating life is bread, so bread will be the battlefield. (I’ve thrown in some non-bread favorites too!)

How to Shape Your Eyebrows

When I lived in a city, going to the salon for any reason was a haul. Getting there, finding parking, and waiting behind a few other women took time that I didn’t have. Where I live now, a wax is pretty quick, but I started to get annoyed dropping $15 (for brows and the family mustache) every time.

Shaping your eyebrows at home can seem like a daunting task, but it’s simple and can look really great. The key is to take your time and be confident that you can do it.

This Eggnog Right Here…

No, that is not a picture of the eggnog I made – because I guzzled the last of it. (So good!)

This was my first attempt at homemade eggnog and it was a real success. Non-photo aside, I had to share the recipe and my thoughts on making it.

A yummy, safe, cooked nog.

I’m sure uncooked eggnog is enjoyed by many without a hiccup, but I was hosting our Christmas gathering and didn’t want it remembered for food poisoning. While a cooked eggnog requires more active time (not much), knowing that it’s safe means one less thing to be anxious about later.
