Yes, You Absolutely Should Put "Parenting" on Your Resume

“Taking a Break” To Raise Your Kids Just Isn’t a Thing

“Taking a break” to raise your kids isn't just a thing. | Money | Parenting | YummyMummyClub.ca

I’m a manager, with a team of two. My job is challenging, and requires that I plan in advance and roll with the punches. There are some excellent networking opportunities, if I select the right settings, and introduce myself to like-minded managers. The highs are exhilarating, but the lows can be crushing. Like many difficult jobs, it’s worth the grind.

My role includes, but is not limited to, the following knowledge and skills:

Here Are 6 Ways a Smartphone Will Make Your Life Easier in the Kitchen

Here Are 6 Ways a Smartphone Will Make Your Life Easier in the Kitchen

Smart Phone Kitchen Hacks

Paula Roy readily admits that she’s obsessed with food. Typically, it’s the first thing she thinks of in the morning and the last of the day as well. You would be mistaken to think she’s developing wrinkles – they are actually permanent creases caused by falling asleep while reading cookbooks in bed.  She recognizes that not everyone shares her passion for cooking, so she channels much of her enthusiasm into creating family-friendly recipes that are easy to prepare and yield delicious results.

Although her husband and kids are eager taste testers, Paula knows she’ll eventually be paying for their therapy thanks to her constant cries of, “don’t touch that plate, I haven’t taken a photo yet!”

Paula loves to travel and explore whatever culinary treasures a destination has to offer. In addition to leading cooking classes and making frequent TV appearances, she’s also a busy freelance writer and serves as the food editor of popular style magazine Ottawa At Home. In addition to her contributions for YMC, you can also follow Paula’s edible adventures through her blog, Constantly Cooking, and keep up with her daily kitchen antics on Twitter and Instagram (@paulajroy).

Anne is one of those people who usually speaks to others in memes, pop culture references, and SAT words. On those occasions she can be understood at all, she likes to entertain others with a sense of humour usually described by friends as “hilarious—once you get to know her.”
Whenever she’s not talking about herself in the third person, Anne is a walking encyclopedia of random trivia and enjoys explaining high school science according to the kitchen. If you want to know why ice melts or pretzels turn brown; if you have a burning desire to know lots of unusual facts about carrots; or if you just simply have an obsessive need to make grocery store staples from scratch for the “been there, made that” achievement awards… she’s your blogger. You can find her nerding it up over on her home blog FoodRetro or on Twitter @foodretro.

Make-it -in-Less-Than-Two-Minutes Blender Salsa

This is the easiest salsa you'll ever make.

Easy Blender Salsa | YummyMummyClub.ca

I love me a good fresh salsa and can eat it by the spoonful. This is good for my health (tomatoes have lycopene which can help prevent certain cancers) but not good for my pocketbook because buying fresh salsa is expensive.

And who the heck wants to spend all their time chopping up tomatoes, onions, garlic, and cilantro to make your own? Not to mention the hell that is forgetting you just cut up jalapeno peppers and rubbing your eyes.  

Thus my “Takes Less Than Two Minutes” Blender Salsa was born.
