Babies Base

I have a great new to me resource to share with you. The name of it is babies base and it offers great tips and information for mom before pregnancy, pregnancy and birth and for the mom as she raises her children through infancy, toddler and childhood stages. Another great aspect of babies base is the forum where moms can get together to discuss what is on their mind. You never know when the experience you had may help another that may be facing the same sort of situation out.

Whether you are looking for a resource that can help moms then be sure to check out babies base.

New Way To Cook

Using a coleman cooler to cook corn on the cob is an idea that is very new to me. A clean coleman cooler I found out may be the perfect place to cook shucked ears of corn. Simply use two kettles-full of boiling water are poured over the corn and close the top. Thirty minutes later when the cooler is opened the corn should be perfectly cooked. Please do not ask me the science behind this as I really do not know that answer. But try it and share with your friends they may all be as surprised as I was.
