Sony Mommy Bloggers Event Part I

So far it has been pretty exciting.  The plane ride here sucked.  It was four and half hours with screaming kids.  I made it through it though.  LOL  They had a limo pick me up.  It was pretty cool.  I got to baggage claim and the driver was standing there with a sign with my name on it.  I probably will never have that happen again, but it still was super … [Read more...]

EZ Tofu Press Giveaway!

Calling all my tofu fans!  Firm and extra firm tofu is packed in water to keep it fresh. However, if you don’t remove the water, your tofu can be pretty plain.  By removing this water, the tofu can absorb the flavors of spices, marinade, or other foods. Tofu is often called a wonder food because […]
