Oxymorons, their opposite … and hot breakfast

whole grain porridge
If you're a working mom ... ha, what is the opposite of an oxymoron?

The buzz in the kitchen

Fl!p Your K!tchen cover
Seventeen years ago, I spent Labor Day in labor: Happy 17th Birthday to my firstborn! This year, I'm spending Labor Day weekend on the final revision of Fl!p Your K!tchen.
