Arroz Con Pollo

As most of you know, since my mother-in-law’s death I’ve been on a mission to find ways to keep the memory of Sue alive for my baby girl.

Word Art

Last month I offer several fun ideas for Poetry Month. But words can be much more than a carefully crafted phrase, poem, script, or story. They can be visual art as well.

Grumpus Soup

We conjured up this super easy (and healthy) recipe the other night when Szaba was possessed by The Grumpus Monster. It magically transformed her back into our babbling bundle of joy. It doesn’t seem fair to keep this power all to ourselves, so…
