It has only been two weeks since school began, yet I am already BORED with making school lunches.  My picky sixth grader absolutely refuses to buy her lunch at school.  To her, buying a school lunch is akin to eating a garbage sandwich topped with warm anchovies.  So…between my daughter and my boys, I make…   [Read the full article]

5 Foods that make going dairy-free easier- Coweta Fayette Families

Draw Your Own Pancake

One of my favorite things about the weekend is getting to sleep in for a bit while the hubs takes the Goober and gets him breakfast.
