I never really understood how mornings could be so hectic for people with kids before I had them myself. I mean, how busy could it get? The answer, as I discovered, is REALLY busy. Pure crazy some mornings to be honest! I can read the looks on moms’ faces as I drop Charlie off to school. It’s that ‘our-morning-was-crazy-too’ look.

Hands down, my favourite spot in our house that we are nearly done building (yay!) is our pantry.  Charles and I spent hours upon hours perfecting the design and layout of our kitchen and pantry to maximize the space and cram as much functionality in as we could while maintaining a classy, uncluttered design.

Cheater Chicken Noodle Soup with a vintage spoon and white linen napkin on fraichenutrition.com

I was bragging to Jillian the other day as she was nursing her cold that I hadn’t gotten sick yet this season (a mini miracle with two kids) as I smugly stirred one of the dishes for our Christmas dinner.  And then BAM, just like a big slap of karma upside the head, I got sick.  Granted it was probably from drinking out of her wine glass over the holidays (I can never keep ours straight), but that’s the last time I say something ridiculous like that.  I had it coming.

Appies & Snacks, Holiday Dishes, Snacks

How to make a family friendly charcuterie board that even the kids will love!

The holidays are here, and with it comes a whole lot of BUSY!  Did you know that the average person spends a whopping TWO WEEKS worth of time getting ready for the holidays???  With gifts to buy, dinners to prep and parties to attend, let’s face it, time is of the essence (isn’t it always when you have kids?).  It’s the time of  year when people let nutrition slip bit by bit (or shall I say bite by bite?).
