Our relationships with God

Books and Magazines

This is our website's annotated bibliography. Not full reviews, but more of a quick opinion and usefulness guide.


We write reviews of recipes we've used. If those recipes are family-owned, we will publish the entire how-to, but if we use a resource, we will link to it so that we are not using someone else's content without permission.

Healthy Food

Lisa tries to make healthy options for our family. We decided to use the website to document our attempts at eating healthier. Sometimes it's changing an original recipe and sometimes it's using a healthy recipe. Our kids are about middle of the road when it comes to being picky eaters. Lisa is more open to new tastes. Brian is generally meat and potatoes.


Our reviews are based partially on all the reviews we read while researching a product and partially on our experiences with the product. Brian will often go to the library to read the Consumer Reports on major purchases. Both of us will read Amazon and other online reviews. However, if we get the item and use it, that's the only way we can really give you a good review, so our reviews are either of items we have or have borrowed.

Books and Movies

Lisa reads a lot. Brian watches movies a lot. Together we can let you know if the different texts are worth reading. Keep in mind that while we both have English degrees, we do not strictly read with a certain lens, in that we enjoy texts for the entertainment value, and we are not going to just try to analyze it in a ivory tower sort of way that might be hard to understand for all of us. We'd add music to this category if we weren't forced to listen to kids CDs all the time.

Products for Kids

While we're already a little past the infant phase with our kids, our goal here will be to inform you about some of the decisions we made and make in regards to items we get for the kids. For example, Lisa threw out all of the possible BPA items a couple of years ago, leaving us with two cups, and then we had to buy every BPA-free cup available.

Household Items

Lisa does most of the cleaning because she wants it to get done, so she will know more about household items. She has researched the safest for the surfaces and for the kids.


Brian mostly uses garage tools. Lisa mostly uses kitchen tools. We will let you know which ones are worthwhile having.


Brian looks for good electronic deals that perform almost as well as the more expensive options.


Some services might be online, while others may be local to the Milwaukee area.
