#MOMTIP – Two-Ingredient Soufflé

I’m no master baker, but this recipe is quick and easy. If you want to try this at home, the steps are simple and you can have a tasty dessert in no time! – Ceci

1) Place 1/2 cup of Nutella into a bowl. Crack two eggs, separating the yolks from the egg whites. Place the yolks in one bowl and the egg whites in another.
2) Mix the choco-yolky mixture until the texture becomes almost that of, like, boxed brownie batter. (See above, I’m no master baker.) Then whip the egg whites until fluffy. You’ll want to see “peaks.”
3) Once you’re satisfied with the fluffiness of your whites, toss ‘em into the bowl with your Nutella yolks. Mix that up. For best results, fold it in. It will turn a pleasant brown color. When satisfied with your mixture, place it in a ramekin for baking.
4) Place it into the oven and bake at 375 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes. Let it cool, and wow, you’ve got yourself something resembling a chocolate soufflé. Like, the fancy French word with an accent mark and all.

#MOMTIP – Give Yourself a Grownup Timeout

“Your brain clutters up with ideas, thoughts, and emotions, much like your catch-all, messy kitchen junk drawer does. Me time helps clean it all out,” says psychologist and author, Leah Klungness, PhD. Klungness, a parenting expert, recommends prioritizing me time, even if you have kids underfoot who need, need, need. “Kids can learn to respect me-time rules. Setting a timer often helps,” she suggests. You might say, “I’m going to drink coffee and read the newspaper for five minutes, and then I will be available to play with you.” Setting a time limit on me time establishes a concrete beginning and end that will keep children from becoming anxious, and also teaches them about healthy boundaries in a way that they understand and respect.
