Mother's Day Musings

My second Mother’s Day is in the booksI just barely made the cutoff last year, but I’m claiming it! Before I was a mom, I thought Mother’s Day was no more than an over-commercialized greeting card holiday (more on that later), but I have developed an appreciation. Being a mom is tough, and I welcome any opportunity that allows me to sit back and kick my feet up, if only for a few hours.

A Beginner’s Guide to Frozen Treats

I was at one of my local grocery stores for “Gelato Wednesdays," that glorious day when gelatos and sorbets from the prepared foods section are half price. I got into an in-depth conversation with the cashier about the pineapple basil sorbet I purchased and realized that I have been confusing gelato and sorbet for years. more

Insect Invasion

After a long and particularly brutal winter and a spring that wasn't sure when to begin, beautiful weather has finally made it to my hometown Chicago.

The higher temperatures and blooming flowers and trees have unfortunately brought some unwanted visitors. Spiders and ants, specifically. I love nature, but I don't particularly want it in my house.
