A Harry Potter Birthday Party

My daughter, who is into all things Harry Potter, turned 10 recently.  Of course, she wanted a Harry Potter birthday party.  I rolled my eyes, thinking of the planning that would need to go into this party – wands, specially-named lollies, potions, label-making.  I had no idea how I was going to do this, as…

How To: Froth Milk Without Fancy Machines

When it comes to coffee, I’m a snob.  I spend up to 30 minutes every day making coffee in my coffee press and frothy milk in my manual milk frother (I usually have up to 3 coffees per day, and spend about 10 minutes each time preparing it).  I don’t even use water that has…
