While the idea of Google/Siri/Alexa listening in on everyday conversations is kind of creepy, it would be interesting to know the top three phrases out of our kids’ mouths. The money is on ‘I’m hungry’, closely followed by ‘Stop it!’ and ‘I’m not tired.’ When you explain that they can’t possibly be hungry because they live […]

We’ve written before about how a well-stocked pantry is crucial when you need to pull a healthy meal together quickly.
