Island Escape before meeting up with hot water and a microwave…Yum!!!

In a previous post, I review the first flavor I made, Napa Valley Joyride (Note to the people at MyOatmeal, if you want to take that blend and offer it using that name, I totally won’t mind.

Customized oatmeal, folks. This isn’t your mama’s Quaker Strawberries n’ Cream instant oatmeal. This is healthy oatmeal for grown-ups. Well, it’s for kids too. But try going to your local store and buying instant oatmeal with currants, golden raisins, and Turkish apricots. It just isn’t going to happen. Continue reading

You are on call, day and night, every single day of the year. At any moment, a little voice could call out “Mommy!!”, and you are obligated to answer. So how on earth are you supposed to have any time or energy left for the other part of your equation? Especially when they want to…you know…have some “us” time? Continue reading
