Welcome to the weekend, my little gingersnaps!! I’m so dedicated to you all because it’s very painful to type right now, but am I avoiding my weekly review duties due to some pain? No way!

Studies estimate that 8% of worldwide mortality can be traced back to indoor air pollution. If your children have asthma, your home’s air quality can be related to exacerbations of the disease and radon is one of the leading secondary causes of lung cancer in the US. We came across this great infographic from our friends at Filterbuy on improving the air quality in your home, what to watch for, and how to help.

Bienvenido este fin de semana a mis gingersnaps! Hoy estamos hablado de… uh… sorry, wrong language. See, this is what happens when I don’t get my required 9 hours of sleep. Cause I’m a night owl and my lovely, generous teenager decided he wanted to volunteer with the sweet little kids doing VBS (Vacation Bible School) this week. I’m so proud of him. Except for having to get up at the ass crack of dawn (7:45am) to drive him to … Keep Reading!!!

Australian Federal Circuit Court Judge Matthew Myers has made a legal ruling barring a 20-year-old new mom from breastfeeding her 11-month-old baby. In May, the mom had her finger and foot tattooed. The child’s father then took the child and started a war in court over the issue.

She made solar lamps with mason jars and spelled out “love” an “Ohana” (the Hawaiian word for family) within them. It’s a beautiful project that I now wish to replicate for my backyard.

I, for one, am so … Keep Reading!!!

Before I start with the recipes, I just had a flash-back of a pizza story. I was very pregnant with our first child, Ali. Tom was in Graduate School and although Tom had about 5 jobs to keep us going, I was the “Big” Breadwinner! Hah! Our big “splurge” was when we would go to a pizza restaurant in Berkeley. About 5 married couples would join us, of which so happens … Keep Reading!!!
