A Stay-at-Home Mom's Response to Obama’s “Remarks on Women and the Economy”
Obama is being blamed for
insulting stay-at-home moms (SAHMs), and critics are being blamed for taking
his speech out of context. First of all, let’s clarify
the context. The official White House press release calls the speech given at Rhode Island College ...

Time traveling
A few days ago my daughter called to get my recipe for
wassail punch, a favorite family drink we love to make during both fall and
winter. As a hostess, she undoubtedly wanted to have the heady smell of spices
wafting throughout her home, recreating the war...

Some things should not come in the form of gifts
When we were married,
every bridal registry seemed to include two must-haves: a crockpot
and the  Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook  with its signature
red-and-white plaid cover. Convinced both were kitchen essentials, I was
