Review: Balancing Diapers and Deadlines

While I haven’t had a kid in diapers for years, and will not have one in the foreseeable future, I do have deadlines. Piles and piles of monster deadlines.

Review: CashCrunch Careers

We’re at that point in our homeschool journey that we have to start planning for Raine’s longer term future.

Easy Champorado from Scratch

I never really was a champorado person, or at least not that I can remember (should ask my mom). But The Hubby likes it, so we occasionally buy boxed champorado mixes. For the uninitiated, champorado is a chocolate-flavored rice porridge that you eat with milk and sugar, or even better, condensed milk. Some people like to […]
