People can only kill people with guns if they pull the trigger. Sanity, insanity, background checks or not, people who want weaponry know how to […]

Last month, I caught wind of the Sandy Hook tragedy while I was sailing in the middle of the ocean, on my way back to the states. Talk about a huge wake up call. I immediately felt worried. It was 3 in the morning, and I was worrying about my children who were probably fast […]

Make a New Year’s resolution to make the world a better place

December 31, 2012 | Comments (0)

I read the horrible, horrible things people said to each other during the Chicago Teacher’s Union strike. […]

Vegan Corn-Free Soy-Free Royal Icing

You cannot have a gingerbread house without royal icing. You know, that frosting stuff that doesn’t taste like much, is hard as cement and holds the house together. Unfortunately the recipe requires egg whites, which is a non-starter for a lot of people. So I made an egg-free version. Most confectioners sugar contains corn starch. […]

The Poppy Lady is a treat for Veteran’s Day

November 12, 2012 | Comments (0)

Despite the fact that our military is engaged in two different conflicts, I think Veteran’s Day falls by the wayside for most people. I find it hard to explain the sacrifices of our current and former military members to our daughters when it doesn’t really touch their world. There’s a new book called The Poppy […]
