What my children think about me having an agent

I HAVE NOT STOPPED SHOUTING ABOUT THE FACT THAT I HAVE AN AGENT! AND I AM EXCITED! My kids are not impressed. Me: Guys! I have an agent! Them: So you have a book published? Me: No. It’s different. You’ll know when I get a book published. Plus there will, you know, be a book. [...]


Today I am grateful for neighbors who say, “The blueberries are ripe. Come and pick whenever you can.” I see a cobbler in my future. addthis_url = ‘′; addthis_title = ‘Blueberries’; addthis_pub = ”;

Once Every 6 Months, I’m a Fun Mom

Though this meal could also be called “how to disguise the fact that you have only bread ends for lunch.” addthis_url = ‘′; addthis_title = ‘Once+Every+6+Months%2C+I%26%238217%3Bm+a+Fun+Mom’; addthis_pub = ”;

Weekly Menu Plan

You all know you’re supposed to plan your weekly menu, make your grocery list, and go shopping once a week. You spend less and don’t go nuts when you realize it’s 5:30 and you have nothing but rutabaga in the house. But, as I’ve said before, I’ve come to hate making dinner. The kids are [...]

2012, Here we come!

I am someone who embraces resolutions (not like my mother). Why not start out the new year making some promises to yourself? The key is not to make too many, and not to make them unattainable. While I do have an ever-expanding list of general goals (keep the house cleaner, do laundry every day, plan [...]

Vegetarian Trial

So, as long-time followers of World of Julie know, I am sick of making dinner for people (children) who burst into tears when I put dinner in front of them. I am sick of making a seemingly kid-friendly meal, like spaghetti and meatballs (something I don’t particularly care for) only to have everyone burst into [...]

Raw Energy

So, with all my random food issues these days (well, not my food issues, but the ones that are mine as a nursing mother), a book called Raw Energy by Stephanie Tourles caught my eye at the library. It’s a book of raw food recipes (snacks, mainly), and since raw food by definition can’t include [...]

Reusable Produce Bags

I am so embarrassed by how long it took me to buy reusable produce bags. I’ve had reusable grocery bags for years now, so why was it only this month that it dawned on me to get produce bags too? Maybe I was waiting for the market to be full of options. Seriously, how many [...]


Tuesday the kiddos and I went to Pineland Farms for a butter-making workshop. Because, really, why wouldn’t we go meet cows, milk them, and then make butter to take home? We also got to take a trolley to the cow barn, which was a fun surprise. Except when the clueless 11-year-old knocked Zuzu down while [...]

Roasted Broccoli: Where have you been?

Ok, so maybe this will make you all just fall asleep from extreme boredom, because you’ve all been roasting broccoli for years. If you have, why on earth didn’t you tell me about it? Broccoli is our go-to vegetable, the one we serve five days out of seven. I steam it, sauté it, and occasionally [...]
