Frozen Peanut Butter-Chocolate Banana Bites

Over my last 11 years of parenting, different childrens’ programming has come and gone, but one that has stood the test of time and never, ever gets old in our house, is the beloved Curious George.  We love that mischievous monkey, and as a parent, I’ve always loved the little lessons my kids learn in each episode.  My youngest is just starting to get to the age where he’s interested in cartoons, and when we have Curious George on, I often …

Cake Batter Frosting

After writing three books (if you haven’t checked them out and you’re dying to, you can find them here, here, and here), we know all the blood, sweat, tears, stress, feeling like throwing in the towel on everything in life, exhilaration, and satisfaction.
