Homemade Zucchini Bread – or Cake?

Last week I questioned the Homemade Mothering Facebook community on a supremely first world problem: Need some people with minimalistic sensibilities to weigh in: should I keep this?

Brrrrr…it is FREEZING here in Chicago. Like, bitter, bitter, BITTER cold. We’re doing our best to keep busy (and sane!) indoors, and I’ve found that a little creativity goes a long way. Mack wants to be a chef when he grows up, so I try my best to foster his interest in cooking. Quite often [...]

I knew [...]
