And away we go! I just returned from a trip to Amsterdam (Bugaboo flew me there to test out the Donkey — review to come!), but strollers aren't the only way families get around. In a city with more bikes than residents, parents have some creative ways to transport their tots through town...and, without helmets. According to the parents I spoke with on the tram, in the streets, and at cafes, head injuries aren't a concern. Take a look at some of the means of transportation.
The wonderful folks at SusieCakes recently sent the Sugar offices an assortment of scrumptious holiday pies. While some staff members marveled over how delicious the pies looked, I paid attention to how the pies were packed. If you're transporting a homemade pie this holiday season, here's what you should do:
- Start by baking the pie in a disposable aluminum pie pan. This way you won't have to remember to get the pan at the end of the party.
- Pick up a pie box from a local bakery or the baking department of your regular grocery store.
- Place the box on a large sheet of parchment paper. With a pencil, trace the shape of the box onto the parchment paper. Cut down to size leaving a two-inch border on one edge.
