Homemade Christmas Gifts #2 – Movie Hamper

Homemade gifts for guys are a little harder but I have found a few that I will share with you over the next few weeks. This first one is really easy and is more put together than homemade but I am sure it will be appreciated just the same. Movie Hamper What you will need A gift box or Popcorn Bucket A fun movie (it does not have to be the latest movie - Look at Pick 'n Pay and other shops for...

Paying it Forward

I read this lovely article from the New York Times (you can read it here) about a new trend hitting the US and this time it is a positive trend. In the article, Kate Murphy says the following: If you place an order at the Chick-fil-A drive-through off Highway 46 in New Braunfels, Tex., it’s not unusual for the driver of the car in front of you to pay for your meal in the time it took you to...

Homemade Christmas Gifts #1 – Bath Fizzies

The truth is that I am no Martha Stewart but I do like the idea of preparing homemade gifts for Christmas that are better for your budget and much more heartfelt.

Pregnancy is not an Illness

Last week, I innocently went to the store to purchase some groceries when I saw it! It was a white bumper sticker with black writing which stated "Pregnancy is not an illness" sitting on the back of a...WOMAN'S car! Women, we are so cruel to each other sometimes. I can only think one of two things, like others (that said these very words to me), she has not had a difficult pregnancy or she has...

Disney’s new movie: Frozen

Walt Disney Animation Studios is bringing out another sweet film for the holidays: “Frozen”. Fearless optimist Anna sets off on an epic journey—teaming up with rugged mountain man Kristoff (tell me you didn't say that with a Russian accent) and his loyal reindeer Sven—to find her sister Elsa, whose icy powers have trapped the kingdom of Arendelle in an eternal winter.

Quiche in a Mug

I love, love, LOVE this. So fun, so quick and ideal for breakfast in bed on Mother's or Father's day. As with all microwave recipes, you can adjust it to what works best for you. Ingredients: 1 free-range egg 1 1/2 tablespoons milk Salt (I like to use herbal salt) Pepper 1/2 crust of bread (those end parts nobody really wants!) 2 teaspoons cream cheese 1 slice free-range bacon...

Slow down a little! Enjoy eating.

So, I have been having this feeling that I need to...EAT A MILLION CHOCOLATES AND EVERYTHING ELSE THAT IS BAD FOR ME...and then it goes away. The problem is that since I am on this health kick, there is nothing to binge on in the house and by binge I mean "a period of excessive or uncontrolled indulgence in food" (that is bad for me) - think Cookie Monster! I don't think binging is bad, per se,...

Chewing on Muesli

Yesterday was my mother-in-law's birthday and we met together at a restaurant to celebrate another year with her. My in-law's are very quick to pick up on things and always leave us in stitches. We were discussing my latest health kick and I was saying how I was getting used to eating Low GI Muesli in the mornings again (something I used to love but have since changed to not eating breakfast at...
