Have a great recipe your kids love?  Please share it with me!


Chicken Denio

Several people have asked, “Do your kids really eat these recipes?” The answer is: sometimes. I always offer them what I’m making for dinner for me and my husband. Occasionally they’ll try it and I figure they’ll grow into liking what we eat (or at some point I’ll just stop making them something else!)  My 2 year old likes this chicken dish.

Main Ingredients:

Chicken, onion soup mix, whole cranberries, Frech dressing.


Baby Spinach Salad 


  • 1 package baby spinach
  • 1 c shiitake mushrooms sliced
  • 1/4 c red onion minced
  • 1/4 c chopped toasted pecans
  • 1/4 c blue or gorgonzola cheese broken into pieces
  • 2-4 slices of bacon, cooked till crispy, cooled and chopped (optional)
  • dressing of choice (e.g. balsamic vinagrette)

Mix all ingredients together. Toss in dressing immediately before serving.

Focus Food: Mushrooms 

Shiitake: These meaty and flavorful mushrooms contain a substance called eritadenine, which encourages body tissues to absorb cholesterol and lower the amount circulating in the blood. 


Shopping Bag


Great kiddie vitamins here. Also, I call fish oil/dha ones “gold” vitamines and they seem to like that – great for their brains. 



Science and math

This site has some fun activities for when kids are on summer break.  

One of my favorites – from my daughter’s pre-school science class is a little baking powder in vinegar… it bubbles and if you drop a penny in it, the solution cleans the copper up and you’re left with a shiny penny.

Ooh.. hard to see the boys get hurt… son goes down on a rebound and tweaks his ankle..good thing a trainer is on site.. quick assessment, ice therapy and a wrap… always remember… ice for 20 minutes… keep injured limb up and recovery is on it’s way.



Love taking my boys to their basketball games, we talk strategy in the car,they ask for advice and input on their games.. it’s fun, most of the time 

try to keep it positive and make a point of giving them a goal, something they can focus on and achieve during the game. 




The same boiling water that hardens the egg…

… softens the carrot. So it is with children. Everything depends on the individual’s particular reaction to stressful circumstances.
