At SMB we want to bring you information and inspiration from around the Valley and beyond. Here are some clickworthy links from around the web this week. Enjoy!

Like craft blogger Nikki, in Stitches, I’m more function than flourish in the kitchen, but this guest post by Terry’s Party Treasures on Nikki’s blog is SO cute and the tutorial pics are so good it made me want to attempt these Chili Pepper Cake Balls. And hey, in AZ we don’t need it to be Cinco de Mayo – these would be festive any day!

Did you catch SMB contributor Cate’s post earlier this week on The Simple Farm Market Garden? I want to visit this place!

There was a moment over Christmas where my husband, my in-laws and I were all lined up on the couch playing Words With Friends on our iPhones, interacting not with each other but with virtual opponents on a 2×3 screen. I thought it was funny but kind of depressing; here’s a happier take on the “parallel play” idea – and a great read.

Need a little motivation to turn a big idea into reality? This did it for me…

Nothing riles up mamas of girls more than that ageless curvy blonde, Barbie. Whether you ban her from the house or think she’s no big deal, this post from Motherlode and response by Babble’s Strollerderby blogger Sierra are both great food for thought.

Sarah Powers is a writer and Scottsdale mom of two. She came to the valley from Southern California by way of Chicago and would take Arizona summers over Midwest winters any day. A perfect day for Sarah starts with coffee, ends with chardonnay and includes lots of baby giggles and sticky-fingered kid kisses in between. She loves high ponytails, showtunes and using her kids as an excuse to stay in and go to bed early, which she would do anyway. Sarah tweets early and often about the messy, tender, fun, funny and irreverent moments of parenthood at www.twitter.com/powersofmine.
