She’s About to Pop Shower on TV

It was exciting (and a bit nerve-wracking) to be invited to do a segment on “Your Life A to Z”, one of the local lifestyle news shows, this week. When we realized that both the host, Kyle Unfug, and I were pregnant, it seemed like baby showers would make a perfect topic!  I resurrected some […]

Baby Showers Themes — beyond the booties

I’ve had a couple of friends recently asking me for advice about baby showers they are hosting. I originally wrote this post for the blog “Or So She Says,” but thought I should share with all of you, how I come up with the crazy ideas I do for memorable baby showers. Hopefully this will […]

BABY TIME Guest Post–"Storking the Freezer" Shower

I remember how naive I was when expecting my first baby. I didn’t know what I was in for, and that may be better. As a chef and a mother, one of my favorite services to offer is that of making freezer meals for expecting and new mothers. I don’t know how anyone else’s has […]
