About Me

aboutuspic Welcome.

Hi. I’m Wendy, and I’ve been all kinds of things. A cake decorator, a health writer, a grocery marketer – but one job trumps them all: motherhood.

Biggest. Challenge. Ever. (If you wear the “Mom” hat, too, you know exactly what I mean.)

I believe that no matter how we choose to parent, all moms need “yes” moments – those little victories and virtual high-fives that get them through the day – and ABCs and Garden Peas is where I do my best to provide them.

Like providing a better-for-you recipe that makes you say, “Ooh, I’m going to make that!”

…or a green household tip that makes you think, “Hey, good idea!”

…or even just a moment that makes you feel like you’ve got someone on your team.

If those things happen, my job is done. Please stop by often for recipes, tips, ideas and stories from a mom who went from corporate cubicles to cribs and Caillou (and had no idea what she was getting herself into.)
