Colin and I went for a hike up Palm Canyon. It's a beauty to behold. Groves of palms and a stream, shockingly appear out of the desert. Then just as suddenly as they appear, they're gone again, giving way to... Continue reading

Kate, I was taken aback with your comment and did some checking. I find no evidence of it being a racial slur. Not in the dictionary, Wikipedia, etc. I also found an interesting reference to the topic here: http://www.snopes.com/language/offense/jimmies.asp Take care, Serena

It's fun to find new ways to serve up treats. What can you do when you have tipsy little treats that wobble about when placed on a serving tray? Why, fill a favorite vessel with Jimmies, of course! Then, place... Continue reading

Shakes are delicious and tasty. But in February, I like to give them a special spark. Take this ordinary vanilla shake, for example. Ho. Hum. Add some sprinkles... And stir. It's like a tasty fireworks shake. Shake! Shake! Shake! Shake... Continue reading

Angie, Thank you for the links. Anything I post here is original to me. I believe very strongly in being original. I talk a little about that here: http://thefarmchicks.typepad.com/farmchicks/2012/07/the-originals.html I'd never seen the posts (or the blog) you referenced. I've been doing these big roses on cupcakes for years and thought it'd be pretty to cover a cake with them. The work you posted is lovely and I'm happy to post a link to it here as well.

Hi Melanie, Are you referring to the plates in the Quinoa recipe? If so, they are from Target, purchased there about six to seven years ago. Hugs, Serena

Thank you, Jade. I'm glad you shared with your readers. I believe the more people that understand autism and differences, the better, more compassionate world it will be. Serena :)

Lori, Andrew's story makes me teary. I relate. Thank heavens for your tenacity and for everything you did as a mom to give him a good life and to keep looking for answers. You really are a SuperMom and not in a derogatory way. As moms, we can choose to give it everything we've got and you DID just that. I admire you. Thank you for your advice and insight. Love, Serena

Oh Dee, What a tragedy. Words cannot express how sorry I am for your good friend and all the families at Sandy Hook. Thank you for sharing her parent's statement. I find it courageous and inspiring. Hugs right back to you, Serena

Linda, Thank you for sharing your daughter's story. I agree with you on how you react to grumpy people and try to do the same. I appreciate your tips on diet. It's not the first time I've heard that. Sometimes moms are the best doctors. :) I'm sending you and your family well wishes in return. xoxo, Serena
