Life

A call for arms (and spatulas)

I have fallen, of late, into the trap I promised myself to avoid. I am harried, rushed. I work full time, then come back to a house full of needy small children. I have a mortgage and a marriage to mind, insurances to update and bureaucracy to decipher and somewhere along the way food has […]

A Back Issue

I have not been sleeping on the job, if that’s what you’re thinking. I was, so to speak, lying on it. I am trying to find an elegant way to describe this but the last month of my life must have been the hardest and the most painful. I have survived two weeks of excruciating pain, […]

A slap on the wrist, anyone?

Please don’t bother, I have already slapped myself on the wrist several times. I has been, what? two whole weeks since my last post? I can always come up with this lousy excuse, telling you that I have been on the road with 2 children under the age of three, gulping about 4000 kilometers. Unfortunately, that would be […]

Savory Swiss chard and cheese muffins

I’ve just passed the last hour of my life going up and down a flight of stairs, coercing an almost hyperventilating, super excited, I-just learned-how-to-stand-up 9-months-old and a defying, rebellious, mind boggling(ly) stubborn 2 year old to retire their act and go to bed. When I enter the room, they both resentfully pipe down, only to resume […]
