My pink booth at the Red Tent event. I’m so excited, I’m turning red. OK, I’ll calm down. Here’s the scoop: I’ll be participating in the Fourth Annual Red Tent Day for Women at the Rhodes on the Pawtuxet this Sunday, March 4 and hope you can join me if you live close by. Look for my PINK booth in a sea of red, as I unveil my new gift book, How to Spread Sanity on a Cracker: Mom-to-Mom Whines, Cheese, Rants & Recipes!

The Red Tent Day is a special day of pampering for women, featuring a swanky array of vendors with proceeds going to the RI Crisis Assistance Center. It takes place at the Rhodes on the Pawtuxet, at 60 Rhodes Place in Cranston, RI from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. (Local Rhode Islanders pronounce it Crrrraaaaaaaannnnsston, which may help if you get lost.) Expect everything from manicures to pedicures, yoga and massages and beyond! Tickets are only $20 and go to a great cause. Visit for more details.

Yes, I wrote a book. How to Spread Sanity on a Cracker is a fun-to-read gift book filled with mom-to-mom whines and cheese dip recipes.  Don’t worry, it’s not long. Think of it as a children’s book for moms. A book that can be consumed in real mommy time!
Highlights include:
  • The horrors of shopping with kids
  • How to make Tex-Mex Dip
  • What to do when your child gets a potty seat stuck to her head
  • The recipe for gourmet Cheddar Cheese Dip with Dried Figs
The book includes whines from moms across the country and many truths of my own.  Hope to see you on March 4. My book is available online now. I will be involved in other events in the coming weeks. Stay tuned for more!
