Did you know there's more to life than answering email and vacuuming LEGO? Of course you do. I love to talk about all that "other stuff" with some of my favorite people around the Internet. Together, we chat about food, good music, writing, books, bedtime routines, and the challenges of working from home. I also answer listener questions and share fun stuff I'm digging that makes my life a bit simpler... Join us—it makes you run faster; it makes laundry folding more fun.

We talk about what it’s like to create a cookbook, the beauty of slow blogging (again!), and what Canadians do for fun. Like playing hockey on their frozen pond. (Really.)
