Bonnie and Clyde’s Blueberry Pie

By 380news | Home & Garden

In the Kitchen with MOM, Krys Murray I have so much fun every year sponsoring the pie eating contest! The first year was trial and error as I was trying to bake a pie that would be easier to eat with your face in it than a regular pie would be. It had to be easy to swallow, messy, and still taste good! I adapted my regular recipe to accommodate what we needed. It makes my heart giggle when the contestants insist on taking their half-eaten pies home because they…Read More

As the author Wendell Berry said, “If you eat, you are involved with agriculture.” Here in Denton County, agriculture remains a large portion of our economy. However, we are daily seeing farmland turning into housing developments. Children and even adults are becoming more disconnected to agriculture and food production. Since we do eat, agriculture becomes quite personal and something in which we should take an interest and be knowledgeable. Answers abound on the internet but some of these answers are not backed by research or science. It can be overwhelming…Read More

Infant Massage

By 380news | Home & Garden

Infant Massage is a wonderful way to bond with a newborn. The benefits include growth; reduce cortisol, increased bone density, and duration of sleep in newborn and children of all ages. The nervous system has one way that all information is taken in, which is through touch and then muscle response. This is how the nervous system sends back out the response. Massage helps stimulate the building of these pathways from the very beginning. If babies have other issues such as suckling at the breast, gastrointestinal development, or motor control responses all of these various needs can be aided by stimulating the skin and then the muscles.
