I don't do cleanses or detoxification. I do practice mindfulness, including cooking and eating. I find I eat slower, enjoy my food more and am much more creative in my recipes. My diet becomes much more varied and healthier when I am aware of what I am eating and where it comes from.

I try to rotate, but the boy still seeks out the winter books. So I keep spring and summer on the mind with readings of Little Bunny Follows his Nose (by Katherine Howard, ill. by J.P. Miller), Summer (by Alice Low, ill. by Roy Mckie), and, really, just any picture book that involves the outdoors.

Me and my family, my brother and his family, my father and my late mother sitting around a large table eating barbacoa on corn tortillas, pork tamales, and menudo. With plenty of fresh cilantro, onion, and limes.

Amazing wallpaper. Will definitely consider it for the little one's room. But, does anyone know where the rocking horse is from? Grandma is very interested in purchasing.

I threw a Green Eggs and Ham party for my son's first this past May. Really, decor was in primary colors and lots of green. We had hot dogs. But the cake was green velvet shaped like a ham and two cupcake to serve as eggs. The cake was sliced like a ham and then served with two scoops of ice cream. Here's a couple of links...

I use them quite frequently and keep them next to the salt pepper and oil by the range. If I'm sauteeing something savory, in goes a pinch.

I was baking a cake a few years back and reached in the oven to test for doneness. I underestimated how low I needed to bend over and reach. The top of my left hand got singed on the coil (while red, yes electric). It took a few seconds for the pain to start, but it was black and white where there was direct contact. Ouch!

Equipment isn't usually a deal breaker. I'll try and substitute in any way possible. Ingredients and cooking techniques will break the deal, however.
Can't stand vinegar, a single waft makes me want to urp. Especially champagne vinegar, white vinegar and tarragon vinegar. Oh yeah, that's another one - tarragon.
I do my best to avoid deep frying, too. It has always bothered my eyes, like cutting an onion.

I sometimes make a deconstructed guacamole - avocado slices, sprinkled with key lime juice and sea salt, and topped with a little cilantro sprig - all served on tortilla chips. But I usually just lightly mash the avocado with key lime juice, salt, chopped cilantro and some diced white onion. Maybe some diced tomato.
