Parenting Stew: The Outbreak

I have been planning on starting this new parenting column on my blog for a couple of weeks now.  So, welcome to Parenting Stew, called such to keep with the Green OnionBlog theme that is tied to my culinary background.  I think it is a fitting name as I can literally stew about the challenges…

2017 Green Onion Awards

Welcome to the second annual Green Onion Awards! Also known as The Onions! Recipients of these awards neither care nor know that they won but, that won’t stop me. The Onions are prestigious in my mind. The votes (my vote) are in for the best of 2017, and it is time to announce the year’s…

Sunday Mise en Place (Nov. 27 to Dec. 3, ‘017)

Welcome to the first Sunday Mise en Place of December. This is an exciting month for bloggers as December operates a bit differently than other months. Besides getting ready for the holiday season, the end of the year brings wrap-ups, years bests (and worsts), and look ahead’s. I have a few posts on the docket…

Deconstructed: Inferior Five #8

I am fortunate to have found today’s issue for the Deconstructed. I had no idea who, or what the Inferior Five were before I Deconstructed Justice League of America #62 back in September. The Inferior Five title consisted of only 12 issues through 1967 and 1968, making it a difficult book to find. By chance,…

Professor Ladybug: Teaches ABC

I am excited to review this next workbook in the Professor Ladybug library. A couple of weeks ago I shared a review of Alphabet Animals, and my daughter and I had a lot of fun with it. Alex (5), enjoyed that workbook so much that she has almost filled out every page, and spent much…

Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman

Neil Gaiman is a legend, no doubt about it. However, I find many of his books hit or miss. The author is dominant when scribing a comic or children’s book- Fortunately, the Milk is one of my favourite reads. When it comes to other books like American Gods, I had a difficult time getting invested…

Sunday Mush en Claws (Oct. 23 to 29, ‘017)

Happy Halloween weekend! The most frightening part of a Tuesday Halloween as a parent is Wednesday. Sending children to school with a candy hangover feels like torture. Welcome to the Sunday Mush en Claws, a terrible spooky pun for the Sunday Mise en Place. A weekly series where I talk about last week, because I…
