Trying to get away from the bag loads of candy that are sure to be hovering around your kids in the next few weeks because of Halloween? Given the estimate that the average child consumes a little over 100 pounds of sugar a year- one might want to think of limiting sugar just a tad this Halloween. I usually make up festive little gift bags for my nearest and dearest. This year I am thinking of giving these cute silver Aloha Ghost Wish necklaces from Maui Dive Girl, $13.

Hope everyone had a great weekend.

I always get so upset at the end of Summer that I forget how great Fall can be. Yes, the temperatures are definitely cooler, but there are still so many fun activities to be had! I went apple picking this past Saturday at The Milk Pail in Water Mill. With the apples picked… my Momma made a delicious apple pie, and I made some homemade apple sauce which I have been meaning to do for some time now. Here is the recipe I used:


4 med. apples
3/4 c. water
1/4 c. sugar (brown or white)
A few shakes of cinnamon
Peel, core, and cut the apples into quarters. Put cut-up apples, sugar, cinnamon, and water into a 2-quart saucepan. Cover and cook at medium heat (simmering) for 15-20 minutes. Let apples cool, then mash them with a fork. 4 servings.

Going, going, gone

The current state of the magazine, and editorial print business really breaks my heart. I have been a long supporter of magazines all across the board- from Latina to Teen Vogue, I read it. So, when I heard this morning that Cookie magazine has decided to close it’s doors, as a children’s blogger and former Cookie freelancer, it really hit home. I am sending my best wishes to everyone at Conde Nast…
