Happy Spring! Hopefully it's here to stay now.

May brings us Mother's Day, so I've got a good idea for the kids to make as a Mother's Day gift for mom or grandma. And with the weather getting nice, we'll be spending more time outside. I've provided one recipe for a snack on-the-run and one recipe for backyard play.


Craft Project: Handprint Wall Hanging


Mother's Day is coming up on Sunday, May 8th. This Handprint Wall Hanging makes the perfect Mother's Day gift.

It also makes a great, personal gift for Grandma on Mother's Day!

Recipe: Healthy Trail Mix

Summertime means a lot more time on-the-go. My trail mix recipe makes a great snack around the table or you can throw some in a ziplock bag for at the park or at a ball game.

"Hungry Momma" wrote to me and asked how I get picky eaters to eat. She's tired of eating the same macaroni and cheese, hot dogs and chips for every meal.

Read the advice I give to persuade kids to eat healthier.
