Homemade Egg Waffles (Paleo, Grain-free)

Every once in a blue moon I’ll come up with something brilliant…and a few weeks ago was that day.  I remember reading in a parenting magazine about making egg white waffles, and after talking to my sister about it (she saw the same thing), I filed it away somewhere in my sleep-deprived baby brain. It … Continue reading

Teething: Homemade Teething Oil

Teething: Homemade Teething Oil

I was going to trash this post, but after talking to my massage lady who’s an aromatherapist, I’m going forward with this.
