Feature_PantryEssentials By Kim Harshberger We’ve all been there. It’s time to make a meal and you end up standing staring into the fridge, then the cupboard, then the pantry, then the freezer, and back around again. All you see are ingredients to make food.

How to Eat Healthy on Vacation

Posted in Explore and Discover, For You, kids on June 11, 2015 at 6:00 am

Feature_EatingVacation By Kim Harshberger I put down my fork and survey the table, realizing it’s happened again; we just ate a meal when we weren’t even hungry. The husband and I are so stuffed we can’t move and the girls’ meals lay almost uneaten. I feel frustrated at the wasted money and irritated at my lack […]

Feature_SurvivalVegan By Sheri Boggs I’m not vegan. I’m not even vegetarian. But my beloved is, and for the last three years I’ve been experimenting with the world of tofu, tempeh, tahini, and tots (tots are totally vegan—look it up).

Measuring Cups By Kim Harshberger I survey the damage and sigh. There are lemon seeds strewn across the counter. Pumpkin and sunflower seeds are scattered about the floor. Measuring cups, mixing bowls, and cutting boards fill my sink. I hate cooking with my kids. To be fair, I hate cooking with anyone. I believe preparing food is […]

Feature_PiePiDay By Kelsey Hudson For three years in high school, I was a proud Mathlete. That means I voluntarily spent my free time studying and competing against others on how quickly I could solve math equations. Between Mathletes, Knowledge Bowl, and Chamber Orchestra, I could have easily filled the world’s geekiest letterman’s jacket if I had […]

Primary School Pupils Enjoying Packed Lunch In Classroom By Rachel Edmondson What should I pack for my girls’ lunch? This is a question I ask myself often. Usually in the morning when we are running late, one girl can’t find her shoes and the other’s hair isn’t done. So I quickly grab the old standbys, throw them in their lunch bags, and we […]

Feature_meals_dinner By Kim Harshberger I have received quite a few questions about what my family eats each week since my post about meal planning was published.

It pops up on Facebook, Pinterest, and Twitter suddenly, and with gusto. It’s everywhere.

Like A (Culinary) Boss

Posted in Explore and Discover, For You on November 20, 2014 at 6:00 am

vegetables for soup By Kim Harshberger As with anything challenging, sometimes we just need a win to keep us going. It’s true with work, sports, parenting, and even hobbies.
