Ah, yes, Warrior Cats! My youngest is keen on that series, having had it recommended by a dear, older friend. I havent quite caught the cat magic, yet, but I suspect it wont be long :) All my best to you, Charlotte! xx, M

Oh, Elizabeth, this makes me so happy! Im so pleased that you tried it; liked it; and most of all, made it your own. Such is the way we best own recipes, I think. Thanks ever so much for taking the time to share. xx, M

Another friend of Flavia! Oh, I am so smitten. Im not a mystery reader, by a long shot, but this is another matter, entirely. Shes such a whip-smart, edgy little protagonist. and her setting makes it all the better. Get your hands on #3! And yes! Zucchini! Let me know how that turns out! xx, M

Oh Jasmine, hooray!!! The Pacific Northwest is such beautiful country, a fact I appreciate more, having been away. Three cheers, then, for an excuse to visit! There are so many glorious resources, there. Let me know if you need more recommendations!! xx, M

Ellen, Maegan, I want that site, too!!! Believe you me, it is so on my list. Now, about the time.... (Bird by bird!!) xx, Molly

Aw, Maegen, so sweet! Summers a bit of a black hole, around these parts :) As to the blocks, your timing couldnt be better! They are actually tiny wooden hedgehogs, meant for stacking, as a game, Jenga-style, or just for fun. We adore them. That said, we rummaged them at a thrift store years ago, in what was clearly an ancient box. I was readying to say they were out of print, as they say. But! Just last week, we took a trip to our local conservatory, and I saw these very same hedgehogs, re-released in a bigger, newer box! And sure enough, when I googled Prickly Pile-Up, there it was, on Amazon! And I have to say, the box is far smarter :) All my best, Molly

Oh goodness, you are so welcome! And thank YOU for the kind words! And, potentially very peculiar question: is this, by any chance, the Paige Young? (If the name Niffer means anything to you, the answers yes :) All my best, Molly

Strangest thing. I just looked at the calendar and it claims it's July. So weird. It was just June, I swear. In fact, I'm fairly certain we have one or two walls that still boast May. Is this what it is to be 42? Or summer? Or alive? All of the above, then. Fair enough. Hello. How are you? What month is it where you are? We are in that weird, wobbly, post-trip place, having flung ourselves to Seattle and back since last we spoke. It was good, and great, and exhausting, and wonderful, and never enough, and always plenty.... Continue reading

Have I ever mentioned I have two ancestral Canadian heart strands, as well? ;) Must be in the blood. Happy summer to you Ellen! xx, M

You know, now that you mention it, I do wonder if your own lovely space hasnt subconsciously been softening me up for a little golden pudding jag of my own? Hmmm.... Happy summer to you! M

Hey Beck, No problem! Ive been known to err (often!!) Are you asking after the snicker doodle butter quantities? The cookies require just 8 oz, half a pound. M Sent from my iPhone

Ahhh, Ardys, such kind words, always! Ive not tried this crust with a GF flour mix, but would love to hear how your experiments go! I can say that Ive had wonderful luck with Taras crust (here) at A Baking Life. Easy, exquisite. Good luck! xx, M

Hi Nibs, Raspberries would be WONDERFUL here! Do report back. The game is called Dont Tip the Waiter (here), and we received it as a gift. I fully agree it would be lovely for grandchildren -- it can be played several ways, all simple, short, and fun. Enjoy! M

Ellen! Such a good question. Hmmm.... lets see. Two family favorites that fit this criteria are Forbidden Desert and Forbidden Island. They are sister games, similar in format and game play, but distinct enough that we own them both. What we loveloveLOVE about them is that they are COOPERATIVE -- no one wins, no one loses. Or, rather, EVERYONE wins, or loses. Cooperation and coordination are key. Colorku is another favorite that sits somewhere between puzzle and game, and which is easily played by one or multiple players. You either solve the challenge or you dont; no wins, no losses. Another strategy I adopt for reluctant losers (and arent we all??) is to choose games that play quickly, so that any losses are easily erased by future potential wins. Any card game, obviously. But also, lovelies like Farkle, Quoridor, Qwixx, Pajaggle, etc. Finally, puzzles!! We adore these White Mountain puzzles; the one pictured here is, I think, our third. They are 1000 pieces, and good solid well-cut cardboard, but are often finished in a day or two, as the designs are so distinctive. Theyre tremendously fun to work. Our favorites to date have been The Games We Played, Story Time, and Candy Wrappers, with Cereal Boxes and Wacky Packages waiting in the wings. Whew! Hope that helps. Have a knee-slapping time with that nearly-ninety Auntie of yours!! xx, Molly

Oh, hurrah! We just played Camel Up AGAIN, tonight. Endlessly different, endlessly fun. Enjoy your epic summer days, Charlotte, from chronic cat rescues to inordinate berries! They are rich, indeed. xx, M

That, right up there, pretty well sums up the state of things. Also, that frowzy-whatever-flower, just below. Also, Friday's sausage smoothie. No photo of that last one. You don't need one, don't want one. Definitely don't want to taste one. Sausage and smoothie don't belong in the same sentence, much less the same blender. But when it's Friday, and day ten of summer break, and you're firing on every cylinder and haven't sat since school ended and are filling each day to the brim and beyond, and somehow, it's still not quite noon? Well. Take note: splotchy, peeled, frozen bananas... Continue reading
