5 Smart, Quick Ways To Get Weeknight Dinners On The Table

As a working mom of three very active children, I am often asked how I manage to feed my family every single night after working all day and before heading out to dance, cheer, taekwondo, baseball, hockey, or whatever else we have on that night.


The Face, The Voice, The Blog!

Maija is a professional work-outside-the-home mom to 3+1 (the +1 being her teenage sister and not her husband). Recently, she’s gone from being a stressed out cop's wife and wanna-be stay-at-home-mom to moving 3,000kms across the country for a job opportunity for her.

Now she brings home ALL the bacon and is still expected to cook it! 

Maija has often said that she is a sometimes food mom which means that in her house there are everyday foods like fruits, veggies and homemade bread (okay once there was homemade bread—but it still counts!) and there are sometimes food like cookies, drive-thru meals and yes even dinners that call for canned soup in the list of ingredients.
