Those who follow the tradition devoutly will build an altar and honor their deceased with popular symbols like sugar skulls and skeletons, marigolds, and the favorite foods of the loved one. My kids and I are planning join in this year by completing these gorgeous sugar skull coloring pages.   This instantly downloadable 21-page sugar skull coloring pages for Dia de los Muertos from Etsy shop...

Vegetarian Father’s Day recipes for a bacon-free feast

This just in: Not all dads eat bacon. I mean, my own dad and the father of my kids do—like, they really eat bacon—but plenty of men are vegetarians and vegans. Or Kosher. Or they just don’t like it. So since all dads deserve to eat well on Father’s Day, I want to celebrate them too, with a menu complete with Vegetarian Father’s Day recipes. It’s even got hearty vegan recipes thrown in for good measure.

10 margarita recipes to put the “ayyy-oh!” in your Cinco de Mayo

I have a serious weakness for margaritas. They are, hands down, my favorite drink. And why not? Let’s face it: margaritas are sunshine in a glass. I even keep a bottle of Skinnygirl Margaritas around for days when the kids win and Mommy needs her own special bottle. (I wholeheartedly stand by our verdict that Skinnygirl Margaritas are surprisingly good.) But Cinco de Mayo is no time to be lazy about margaritas. Agreed? If there was ever a weekend to put a little extra time, care and effort into your margarita, it’s this weekend. I’ve rounded up 10 (yes, 10!)...

Nacho Libre happens to be one of my all time favorite movies. Something about Jack Black in “stretchy pants,” as he calls it, just puts me in a good mood. Well these posters bring out the giddiness in both me and the kids. Rebecca Paragine is my kind of artist–whimsical and full of energy. Her newest pieces are based on luchador wrestling culture from Mexico, and I can’t help but chuckle. I want to hang them all up because I really can’t pick a favorite print. The vibrant colors, the funny faces, and the silly names all make me...
