Psst! I’m in #HolidayMode


That’s right. It’s going to be pretty quiet here for the next week or two, this Mommy needs some time off and the Christmas break seems like the best time to take it. While there will the occasional tweet or Facebook post (I’m only human, after all), the bulk of my attention is going to […]

Holiday Entertaining Options from President’s Choice

PC bing cherry trio

I started my holiday baking last weekend. I have to be in the mood to bake (well), so I prefer to do it when it feels right, not because I have to. Because of this, I usually have some extra store-bought goodies in the freezer to either A) Supplement or B) Replace my homemade treats, […]

Tandoori Glory Snack Mix

I knew zilch about Bluetooth external speaker options when I received this product to review, so I didn’t know what to […]

Sweet & Sour Meatballs on the Double!
