By now we’ve all heard about the 10 year challenge and to be honest I have mixed feelings about this challenge… Since it began, social media has bombarded us with these side by side images.   I feel like that challenge has the potential to place a lot of emphasis on body image as opposed…

Just so there are no doubts… I love farro! And my kids do too! It is very versatile and easy to use. Now you must be asking, what exactly is farro? Well, it’s an ancient wheat grain that was very popular in Eastern Europe and the Middle East. Over the years it has been overshadowed…

I’ve been making these veggie rice balls for quite sometime now and my kids really love them! It might have something to do with using chopsticks but hey! If it works who am I to complain? I don’t recall where I first saw them but I remember thinking that this would be a great way…
