From Cookie Magazine: Nigella on Food and Kids

Ok, I admit it. I adore the Food Network, there is something seriously relaxing to me about listening to recipes and watching delicious ingredients blended together to make something tasty and fabulous. One of my favorite celebrity chefs is Nigella Lawson, the sassy British import with a flair for creating delciously easy recipes that always earn rave reviews.

On Sunday mornings at 10:30am EST, Nigella has a new show on Food Network, aptly titled, Nigella Express as a companion to her new cookbook that speaks to me as a mother with a rapidly increasing schedule to go with my growing bump. In this month's Cookie, Nigella talks about raising babies, a career and healthy eating habits.

My favorite line from the article is "There is no point in making something fast if it doesn't taste good." and I absolutely agree.

In our Holiday Stash: Baby Gifts from Baby Emi Jewelry

So, I know it's a little late or a little early, depending on which type of holiday shopper you are. I am the just after Halloween and before Thanksgiving type, but lately with so many friends having babies, myself included, I've had my eye on the baby goodies.

Debbie Savage and our friends at Baby Emi Jewelry have come out with some fabulous finds that I can't help, but lust after and know that will become welcome presents for our friends and family. Zenora and I have a matching set and I love the way the bracelet sparkles on her little wrist -- so cute and so fitting her little budding personality. My personal favorites are the Mommy and Me bracelet sets and the new Cambodian Jingle Bells bracelet, pictured to the right, which causes a pleasant jingling sound to following the cruisers. As an extra bonus, all the gifts from Baby Emi come beautifully wrapped and ready for presentation.

Finds from the Metropolitan Food and Entertaining Show: Kitsch'n Glam Aprons

Alright, I admit it. I'm kind of throw-back to the fifties on occasion. I love the smell of baking bread and treating my hubby to home-cooked meals. I collect cookbooks and read ettiquette guides, but I like to kick it up several knotches and I actually wear an apron while cooking because unlike the fifties, my day-to-day is alot more like run, rush, pause, repeat, especially with the growing bump and an almost two-year old in tow.

But this weekend, at the show, I found several treats which I will be posting about over the next few days. My favorite which I am wearing now is my new apron from Kitsch'n Glam, makers of swanky aprons in fun fabrics and great styles.

I figure that while the bump is growing I will accesorize anyway possible and bring bits of sparkle into everyday activities like making dinner.
