How to Survive a Vacation with Twin Toddlers

When the boys had just turned one, we took a trip with the kids and my parents to a neighboring seaside city called Mar del Plata.  It was nice, and refreshing to be in the breezy, salty air and quite easy to move around the kids in the stroller or in the car.  Plus, we had my parents as backup hands if assistance was needed. The boys were just learning […]

Bread: 101, the No Knead Bread

One of the things I really love making is bread.  There’s nothing like the smell of yeast in the kitchen to make me feel at home and put a smile on my face.  And although I used to make bread every week, I don’t get a chance to so often right now.  At least I try to make it on holidays and birthdays and such. It usually disappears in one […]

Outsmarted by the Twins

My husband, Javier, celebrated his birthday yesterday.  He had been asking me to make him cupcakes, literally since the boys first birthday in June, so I decided to oblige him and bake him enough cupcakes to keep him “cupcake-satisfied” at least until our children’s second birthday. On Sunday, I started out in the morning by preparing the dough for some brioche. (I didn’t bake until later in the afternoon, because […]

Terrible Twwwwenty Months

the boys gave me a run for my money yesterday… they’re prematurely starting the terrible twos i think. 🙁 tony has decided that he likes to wear his leash indoors, but not outdoors and he doesn’t want to walk. anywhere. period. he will throw himself on the ground as soon as we leave the house. and if i pick him up, it’s contagious. bruno wants it too. and they’ve discovered […]

A Happy New Year Indeed

Ahhh Happy New Year!  There are so many things I want to write about my life – and about my kids and I have no idea where to start. Uhhh let’s start with the fact that I’ve taken a month off of writing here to enjoy some time with my family and do some things not computer related… I also have been trying to resist jumping into the refrigerator on […]

She Makes Cherry Pie!

A couple of days ago, I made this pie and just before putting it into the oven I snapped a shot with my cell phone and posted it to Facebook. One of my friends asked for the recipe, and it’s only now that I have been able to sit down for the first time to write it up.  So this is for you, girlfriend.  You know who you are, and […]

Christmas Inspiration Days 8-12

Ahhh, so I thought this was going to be a daily post as well until I got some sort of weird stomach flu bug that left me unable to move for three days straight. I was in a state of painful, odd, feverish stream of conscious, so I was unable to write – unable to clean my house and unable to even think about anything.

How I got my Twins to Sleep

A lot of people ask me what I did to get my kids to sleep.  They come over in the evening and are amazed that at 9:30pm, it’s as if we don’t have children at all. Our house is filled with the noises of us chatting away, listening to music or sometimes the television is on, we’re preparing dinner and maybe even having a glass of wine.  The children are […]

30 Days of Christmas Inspiration – Day 6 – Christmas Cookies

Today was a particularly odd day for me. The boys slept so well last night in their new beds and even today, they slept their naps without much fuss. Instead of using some of their nap time to get some housework done, I ended up making a comfortable little bed on the boys bedroom floor and snuggling up for a little nap myself.  I have been plagued this last week […]

30 days of Christmas Inspiration – Day 5

It’s day 5 and with just a few minutes to spare! Today the boys played hard with grandma in the morning so that I could do some organizing in the boys bedroom.  And now we are OFFICIALLY out of cribs and into actual beds. Beds on the floor, nonetheless, but beds!
