Twice Baked Potatoes

potatoes 1

Most people groan at the thought of making twice baked potatoes, simply because it just seems like extra work. My family loves their potatoes though and I"m always looking for ways to create new potato recipes and figured it was time to come up with my own Twice Baked Potato recipe - it is after all, the best of both worlds - baked and mashed all in one bite! A lot of the prep work for this recipe (frying and chopping the bacon, chopping green ...continue reading

With the chilly temperatures outside, most of us are bundled into our winter clothes and snow gear to stay warm. If you have kids, it's pretty likely that at some time or another you've overdressed them to the point where they can't move. Unfortunately, even with the good intentions of keeping our little ones safe, we might be putting them in more danger by combining winter outerwear and car seats. Ruth from Viva Veltoro has all the information ...continue reading

Lego has been a huge hit for years, both for kids and parents, with their creative and endless indestructible building ...continue reading

SlimType {The Physical Keyboard for Your Smartphone}


Everyone loves their smart phones these days. It seems that we can't go for an hour without checking our social media, texts, or any number of other apps and mediums that connect us with our friends and family. Ironically, since cell phones evolved into smart phones, written text has, for the most part, replaced voice communication. While I am old-school and prefer to speak on the phone rather than text (it's so much faster), I have to bend to ...continue reading

How To Naturally Heal Severe Dandruff

We had the chance to visit the ABC Expo in Las Vegas this past year. The ABC Expo is gigantic convention for all things kids and family-related. When I say gigantic, I mean gigantic. It was our first time attending and the sheer size and number of vendors is amazing. We were there for three days and still didn't get to see every display booth. It's that big! While we wanted to see everything and talk to every person, it just wasn't possible. ...continue reading

Do you suffer from seasonal allergies? It's miserable isn't it? Now imagine that for your kids. Kids are so tough and resilient that they often just power through their symptoms without so much as a complaint. I know how frustrating it is when your eyes won't stop watering and you can't stop sneezing. It must be terrible for children, especially since they can't quite articulate exactly how they are feeling. Deepika and Manish Chadha watched ...continue reading

The Baby is Here!


Hi everyone! Just wanted to let all of you who have been on baby watch know that HE has arrived! Our little guy was born over night so we've spent the day catching up on sleep and snuggling. His birth went really well and we are both doing wonderful.
