    TV Mom Tuesday: On Giving Birth

    We picked Thelma Harper from Mama’s Family as this week’s TV Mom. Why? Because she is flat out amazing, and she tells it like it is. Although we could give a million reasons why she rules, this pretty much sums it up. Here she ...

    Demystifying Tamales

    My first tamale initiation happened in 2003, when I met a friend in Colorado who could make tamales in her sleep, blindfolded. Her name was Candelaria, and she happened to be from the same state in Mexico my husband was from, Dolores Hidalg...

    A Broken Bond

    I haven’t seen my father in over ten years. Our relationship is best described as being broken. I miss him terribly and I’m equally responsible for this sad state we’ve come to. After years of back and forth, I think we’ve both decided that ours is not a father/daughter bond-to-be.

    Last June, a story I wrote about my father was published in a national magazine. This did not bode well with my father. It was a risk – putting my feelings out there for the world (and my father) to read – but it was my story – my experience – my feelings. There are always two sides to a story; I chose to share my side as a means to make peace with our past. READ MORE

    Awash in Memories

    Appliances don’t last forever, but when my Maytag washing machine shuddered through her final spin cycle today, I couldn’t believe the end had come.

    She hadn’t been ailing, so her demise was sudden, shocking. “No!” I groaned when the repairman gave me the bad news. “Ma’am, she lasted 28 years,” he told me. “You’ve got nothing to be sorry about.”

    At 28 years old, she was certainly a senior citizen in a world of planned obsolescence, but I guess I had taken her for granted. And now that she’s gone, I am left high and dry with a pile of dirty clothes. READ MORE
