What Do You Do When Your Man Loses His Job?

What Do You Do When Your Man Loses His Job?

It’s been talked and joked about it many Black films.  Black men, do not, under any circumstances tell your beautiful, Black wife when you lose your job.

Book Review: Light Skin, Dark Skin + Giveaway

Book Review: Light Skin, Dark Skin + Giveaway

4 Ways to Get Your Kids Protein Without Meat

4 Ways to Get Your Kids Protein Without Meat

Over the last 6 months my youngest son, Mr. Philly-Phil, has become a vegetarian.  At first we thought it was a phase, and my husband and I would sneak meat into his meals.  We’d finely chop ground meat for his spaghetti, or hide the steak strips under rice in his stir-fry.  Well the minute he tasted the meat, he’d spit the food right out, and protest that he doesn’t like chicken.  (Since all…
