It took my 9 year old to point out the obvious:
“Mom, your blog is called ‘Eat.Play.Love…More’, yet you always write about ‘eating’, what about the rest of your name?”
So, today I am excited to share an article that I can file under the headings of ‘love’ and ‘more’….take that (9 year old who’s too smart for his own good)! Continue reading
Just cuz you’re good, doesn’t mean you’re boring!
My 5 year old twins definitely don’t confuse the two. This weekend I found them dancing on the roof of the family vehicle (in the garage), singing and having a great time! Good? NO. Boring? Heck NO! These two definitely keep me on my toes. What’s a mom to do?! Continue reading

**Today’s much anticipated guest post is brought to you by Mr. Libby (AKA Rick). I have finally convinced him to share his top secret turkey recipe (it wasn’t easy)…and just in time for Thanksgiving!* Continue reading
What does a turkey say?
My youngest is SO in love with the song ‘What Does a Fox Say?’ that he will literally drop whatever he’s doing and bust into a dance whenever that song is played. It makes for great entertainment and countless family videos…poor thing! If u haven’t heard it yet, lucky you because it’s one of those (presumably) one hit wonders that gets into your head and never leaves. No joke, I wake up singing it in my mind so I’m convinced that it marinates in my subconscious all night! How’s that for a sales pitch? If u still want to hear it (k. It’s really not that bad) here it is.
Turkey season is right around the corner, and so is the kickoff to the ‘holiday season’. Like most families, Thanksgiving to us means getting together with extended family, cooking together, laughing and eating. Is there really anything I’ve missed? Ok well…maybe we indulge in a glass (or two) of organic wine. It is one of only 3 times a year that we eat turkey so we enjoy it! Did you know that the majority of the 46 million turkeys consumed each year come from factory farms? Continue reading
There I said it. No judgements. I LOVE CUPCAKES! The thicker the butter cream frosting the better as far as I’m concerned! But alas, I have no cupcake guilt because I turned my crush into something amazingly nutritious!! Continue reading
Ahhh…Monday morning. The kids are crying. Your son can’t find his other shoe, your daughter has decided she needs to use the bathroom, and your youngest has spilled his milk all over his school clothes…. You maintain composure, send them off to school, take a deep breath and reach for the:

Pssst! Did you hear about the $18 million
gold maple syrup heist? True story. Last year thieves made off with 9600 barrels of maple syrup in Quebec, Canada. Two arrests have since been made and only 70% of the syrup recovered. The remaining 30% is rumored to have been purchased across the border on the black market! Yes folks, this stuff is THAT good AND it’s serious business! Vermont and Maine have put new legislation before the senate whereby the sale of fake maple syrup would be a felony punishable by a jail sentence of 5 years! Don’t mess with maple syrup peeps!

I love fall. The freshness of the air, the crunchy leaves, and the desire to sleep just a bit more. What I don’t particularly love is being cold, and sometimes a warm jacket or gloves doesn’t cut it. Enter soup. On these cooler days and nights I crave a warm bowl of soup. It’s like giving myself a cosy hug on the inside. To help cosy you up, I am sharing 3 of my most favorite soups. They are guaranteed to warm you up and are always a hit at potlucks. I’m known to roll up to a potluck or two with my crockpot brimming with a warm batch of soup. Be forewarned however, that I am batting 100% that I am always asked for the recipe of said soup. So if you think you can handle being a ‘soup’er hero (ha-ha-ha-?), here they are… Continue reading
Am I the only one who finds Halloween weird?
I mean what the heck is it really all about? All I do know is, it’s a strange event entrenched in darkness and crap candy overload.
