MP never had Pop-Tarts growing up, which may be why she found herself attracted to Alana Chernila’s recipe for homemade Toaster Pastries. This is a great, lazy Sunday morning treat to try, and the whole family can help prepare them.

There’s not a parent in Maine that’s not familiar with the daily winter routine. Every morning, without fail, we’re ushering our children into warm socks, boots, mittens, scarves, snow pants, coats, and hats. Sometimes the routine goes smoothly, and sometimes well, not so much. And who could blame the kids for not wanting to get in full cold weather regalia? No child wants to feel like—what’s hilariously described in A Christmas Story—as a tick that’s about to go pop, right?

That’s why MP turns to great local Etsy shops like BabbidgePatch Hats. Shop owner Cathy Costa made CP#2 a Star Wars hat last season, and he looks forward to wearing it each day. Cathy makes beautiful knit hats adults and kids want to wear.
