We all scream for easy homemade organic ice cream!

Happy Wednesday! It has been hot and humid the last couple of weeks in southern California. So to stay cool, I’ve been making meals that require little to no heat and we’ve been using our Frogg Toggs chilly pads towels.

I don’t know about you, but after dinner I like dessert, so when I found this recipe from SparkPeople I had to try it. We have a fancy ice cream maker so Little Pumpkin Doodle thought it was strange when I told her that we were making ice cream in a blender.  I made some changes to the recipe, but it’s essentially the same and tastes more like soft serve ice cream.

Don’t forget to stay tuned for Mommy’s Organics 2.0. We’re revamping the site and you’ll soon have a chance to win some great giveaways!

Mommy’s Organics “Endangered Species” Applesauce Muffins

 Hope you had a nice weekend! We have been busy the last couple of weeks.  Little Pumpkin Doodle was hit by accident in the eye at day care.  She’s doing fine now;  I was worried she’d have a scar, but I’m happy to say that I think she’ll end up scar free. Then two weekends ago we were is L.A. to visit Hubby’s brother that was visiting from the Big Apple.

We watched the olympics off and on this past weekend. We let Little Pumpkin Doodle watch the opening ceremony, but she lost interest very quickly, as did I. What did you think of the opening ceremony?  However, I thought the part with Daniel Craig/James Bond taking the Queen to the Olympic stadium was hilarious! [Read more…]

10 Things you should NEVER say to a woman with fertility challenges!

One of the things I haven’t told many people is that I struggled with fertility. Being a mother is something most, not ALL women dream about, so when my husband and I struggled to have our daughter “organically” I quickly realized our dream may not come to fruition. After 3 surgeries, 2 rounds of IVF and 1 round of IUI, nothing worked. Although we received our bundle of joy by conceiving the old fashion way, there are just some things you NEVER should say to a woman with fertility challenges. [Read more…]

Fashion “Friendly” Friday

Fashion “Friendly” Friday is where I show you how I’m turning my closet & Little Pumpkin Doodle’s into an environmentally friendly wardrobe by learning to Recycle, Reduce, and Reuse. Last week I went to my new favorite children’s resale store, Sugar Plum Kids. For those of you who are reading this blog for awhile you know that Little Pumpkin Doodle names all her dresses and since she has outworn “Laura Ashley” it was time to get a new dress. I love this store! The place is clean, it doesnt’ have the stinky resale smell and the staff is great. I happen to have a credit from the time LPD’s nanna was here for visiting for $13.00 (I sold some of LPD’s clothing to the store), so I went to work. Since LPD was with me she occupied herself by playing with toys while I browsed. It didn’t take long for me to find two adorable dresses.

Simple ways to keep it “Green” in the kitchen

I’m always trying to find greener ways to clean things, especially in the kitchen. When Little Pumpkin Doodle came along I was out of control. I had hand sanitizer everywhere and was constantly wiping things down with vinegar and water. Below are a few easy solutions to keeping things green while cleaning the kitchen. [Read more…]
