6 Ways to Fix a Sexless Marriage Before It's Too Late

When you first meet someone and pass the courting stage you will probably enter a period where you enjoy sex at every opportunity you get, this could be daily or twice daily.  However, every couple experiences a reduced need for sex as the relationship becomes more comfortable.  This does not mean the love has gone, rather that the time available has reduced.  Commitments at work and at home will often drain you physically and emotionally leaving very little time Read more

Thank You Food.com!

Posted on by Crystal in Gram's Recipe Tin, MommiFried Extras | 7 Comments

I was super excited to hear from Food.com several weeks ago informing me that I was one of their winners of their first ever Food.com Thanksgiving Pinterest contest. They asked entrants to show their ultimate Thanksgiving meals, starring Food.com recipes and to give our boards a theme. After struggling with several ideas, including a Hearty New England Dinner, I decided to go with the theme “A Busy Mom’s Fast and Friendly Thanksgiving Dinner“. Have you ever tried cooking Thanksgiving dinner while holding and caring for an infant? Or while three little ones do circles around you? Moms need fast, easy and dependable recipes to get them through the day and all of those major holiday MUDD moments! Here’s a peek at a few of the recipes I chose  (all images are direct from Food.com): Read more

Strange Parenting Rituals and Traditions

Posted on by Crystal in MommiFried Extras | Leave a comment

During a blog hop this weekend, I read a hilarious post about one family’s weird parenting rituals. From making the teens recite Little Bunny Foo Foo 20 times when they’ve been naughty to tenting in the backyard once a month to promote bonding, it was a hoot from start to finish. I wish I had some strange Ponti parenting traditions to report, but we’re just not there yet. I was inspired, however, to take a look at some of the bizarre parenting customs and traditions from around the world. Here are five worth mentioning: Read more

Nemo Eats Han Solo! Okay. Disney Buys Lucasfilm.

Posted on by Crystal in MommiFried Extras | 3 Comments

Looks like Chewie and Herbie are finally joining forces, much to the dismay of fans and groupies around the world; myself included. Hoo boy, did I love me some Luke Skywalker back in the day. Those pants. That lightsaber. The force. Hotness. Now, we can expect him to sing Hakuna Matata while riding on the back of an airhead elephant as he tries to find his missing pullstring cowboy doll. Ugh. What has happened in the world? Read more

How to Verify Your GoDaddy-Hosted Website on Pinterest

Posted on by Crystal in MommiFried Extras | 13 Comments

Pinterest recently started rolling out website verification for profile pages. What does this mean for you? People interested in finding out more about you can now click directly through to your blog or website once you’ve taken the time to verify it. This is a BIG deal. Until now, it was virtually impossible to know what you might be directed to when clicking on the little globe. Verification displays the full website URL and checkmark on your profile. Right now you can only verify a top-level domain such as www.mommifried.com or www.pinterest.com. For some bloggers (and website owners), this means waiting a little longer for Pinterest to roll out verification for sub-domains. Read more

Thankful for Blogging (and BlogHer)

Posted on by Crystal in MommiFried Extras | 2 Comments

If you’re here visting from BlogHer, welcome! I’m so happy you stopped by. It was a major rush to get the news the other day that I would be featured on their home page and Career & Business section. It’s also funny, because I was a little disappointed in how that particular post turned out. Goes to show, you just never know!

Today, of all days, it’s ironic that BlogHer is spotlighting my work. It’s been exactly four months since I started this blogging adventure. My first post went live on July 1, 2012, two days after I fuddled endlessly with a theme and getting things all set up on WordPress. I remember that day vividly, because I was filled with excitement, yet so terrified at the same time. Unlike blogging to generate awareness of a product or brand, I was jumping into blogging mainly because I needed and craved an outlet. Read more

Poop Transplants, Exploding Ketchup & Yahoo! Oh My!

Posted on by Crystal in MommiFried Extras | 1 Comment

Since Marissa Mayer took over, a wild, crazy side has emerged at Yahoo!. Take, for example, their landing page. Arriving there today made me stop, scratch my eyeballs and look again. Here are a few of the headlines and popular stories:

Why Is Counterfeit Ketchup Exploding in New Jersey?

‘Poop Transplants’ May Combat Bacterial Infections

First ‘Klingon Wedding’

Skeleton of French man found in bed after 15 years

In case you’re wondering, they really do move poop from one human to another. From the article:

“Researchers transplanted fecal matter from healthy people into the colons of people infected with the notoriously hard-to-treat Clostridium difficile bacteria, which causes severe, watery diarrhea. The researchers found that 46 out of 49 patients got better within a week of the treatment.”
