The Empowered Girl’s Gift Guide

The Empowered Girls Gift Guide

We talk a lot about being “Empowered Traditionalists” around here.

What does that mean?  Besides bringing us up to pursue whatever dreams we could imagine, our parents instilled in us a strong sense of duty and tradition. We were taught to understand that while we were capable of just about anything, we are also best equipped for certain roles — roles no one else can fulfill as we can.

We both spent several years succeeding in male-dominated career fields (Mustang Sally as a national sports television producer and Penny Lane as an astronaut trainer for NASA). Now, we are “leaning in” to motherhood – hard and unapologetically. Encouraging our daughters along a similar course is an important part of our daily lives.  

Big dreams are pursued, dependence is a dirty word, creativity is fostered, and intellectual curiosity is expected. Read more »

Primal Stuffed Zucchini

Posted by · July 31, 2014 · 9:32 am · Feeding Our Family

My girls (4 and 2) are really good about trying and eating most foods, but like the rest of us, things need to be cooked the right way to really excite their pallets. They have always eaten zucchini but not without a little bit of prodding, and I am always on the lookout to find a recipe that makes meal times peaceful and plates clean. When I came up with this primal stuffed zucchini, plates were not just clean, they came back for seconds, thirds, AND fourths!

Primal Stuffed Zucchini. These are easy and quick to make, and they disappear even more quickly!

So yes, I’d say this one is mom-tested, kid-approved.   Read more »

Posted by · July 26, 2014 · 5:55 am · Living Life Naturally

Mustang Sally and I get asked all the time for natural recommendations on things we use to treat those common injuries or sicknesses that just seem to come with the territory when you mix children and summer. 

Now, I’m not a doctor or any kind of health care professional, so I am not giving any formal medical advice here. I am just a mom trying to take care of my family.
