Redefining "feminism"

Emma Watson, the actress, was recently appointed a UN Women Goodwill Ambassador and gave a very moving speech to the UN.  You can view it here.  I mean, this speech made me cry because what she is saying, what she is feeling...I want MY daughter one day to be just as passionate about changing the world.

Homemade gummies

I've been wanting to make homemade gummies for awhile.  Finally ordered some grass fed gelatin and used this recipe from Wellness Mama.  Well...they certainly did not turn out looking anything like the ones Miss Wellness Mama has pictured on her site.  They were okay in taste.  She wasn't kidding when she said we had to work fast. That gelatin was coagulating faster than I could get it into the pan.

And I'm not talkin the green chia pet thing.

I'm talking about Chia pudding. Now, I consider myself a pretty good cook. I like to cook and cook often.  I'm also a pretty stellar baker.

The ONE thing that seems to confound me is Chia Pudding!!  I have made it several times and it never turns into pudding.  Just stays chia seeds in some liquid.  I am really not understanding this...

Can someone please enlighten me?

Unexpected deliciousness

A while back I had accidentally ordered Sprouted Oat Groats from To Your Health.  This is where I usually buy my ROLLED oats as they are sprouted and a friend turned me onto this company.  Apparently, they don't roll your oats until the order is placed so it's really fresh.

The End of Summer...

Really cannot come soon enough.  I was really chomping at the bit for school to start on September 3rd...and then the fire happened.  Yes, there was a fire at our school that then delayed the start of school.  Two classrooms burned, demolition, insurance crews, clean up, clear up, safety check...

When you can make cream of corn??!


We had a dinner party last weekend and I had intended to make corn egg drop soup.

Grand Central Market

Wow, where have I been hiding?  Under a rock or somethin'?  Maybe spending too much time analyzing my parenting unskills...(reference previous post)

Luckily, I haven't been hiding for that long and we (the fam) finally ventured over to Grand Central Market in #DTLA.  This place is pretty awesome!
