Over the last month, I’ve had a pretty crazy work schedule. Meals I’ve planned have gone out the door. Events, same thing. I had the opportunity to try out the new PeakFection from Foods Co. and it’s worth talking about. Found at a Kroger or Baker’s if you are in Nebraska, we tried out the […]...

Sonic Drive-In food and drinks are pretty much summertime staples in my house.  We go at least once a week for a sweet treat – slushes, iced teas, cherry colas, and of course ice cream!  And when I don’t feel like cooking, Sonic meals are always delicious and a big hit with my girls. Even though […]...

Lunch time during the summer months was easy. There was never any rush, food decisions were made together, and we’d often find ourselves picnicking at the beach, playground, or even the backyard. And, really, anything that ends with family picnic time is more than okay in my book. Unfortunately, however, summer does not last forever […]...

It’s National Coffee Day!  Cheers! Coffee is my beverage of choice, from first thing in the morning to a cup of decaf in the evening, coffee gets me through the day. Since I’m a Keurig girl, I had the chance to try out the Keurig OfficePro brewer from Staples as well as all of the […]...

Like most parents, I am concerned with what my children eat.  Meals are easy to plan, but snacks are a different story.  I want to make sure that the snacks I provide are not only healthy, but also tasty and easy to make.  I am happy to have found all of that from GoPicnic Ready-to-Eat […]...

There’s a theme to many of my posts and it’s truer now than ever… on-the-go! My oldest daughter has school, Girl Scouts, and ballet while my middle daughter has soccer practices, training, and games, and my youngest daughter has tap and ballet on top of all of the family activities we do! My friends say […]...

I can make a mean pot of chili, in fact I have a great recipe called Two Pot Chili (keep reading for recipe) and this time I used Riunite wine. Oh, yeah. After all, what is better than football and chili?  Answer:  Not much! Riunite’s Ultimate Chili Challenge, a nationwide chili cook-off culminating in a […]...

My motto is “There’s always room for ice cream”, but that can be a problem when you’re trying to watch your figure! Most of those tasty treats are packed with sugar and barely acceptable even for a cheat day! That was, until I tried Arctic Zero! Arctic Zero is a low-calorie, high-protein line of frozen […]...

With all that I have on my schedule, I truly enjoy an evening with my best friends, simply hanging out. Okay, hanging out with wine. It’s our way to take a “Wine Break” that may include a little bit of additional whine! Just released from Oberon Wines, a 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon and 2013 Sauvignon Blanc. […]...

My kids are not morning people. Despite them getting up at the crack of dawn and rising with the sun on a daily basis, they are not the happy-go-lucky type during the early hours of the day. Even after waking up on their own, they drag. They’re too sleepy to get dressed, they want to […]...

Convenience and affordability are high on my priority list…especially convenience. Let’s face it, I’m not only a mom, I’m a full time student, I work full-time and I’m super involved in my community. Just because I’m busy doesn’t mean I have to sacrifice taste or quality snack foods thanks to NatureBox. NatureBox is a monthly […]...

My family loves Italian food.  It is easy to make, you can make a lot at one time (leftovers are the best!), and it is something that everyone in my family will eat.  We usually have some type of Italian food every week – our favorites are spaghetti, lasagna, pizza, ravioli, and stuffed pasta shells. […]...

Now that school time is back and in full swing, let me ask you a question. How many of you pack lunch for your children? Both of my little ones are picky eaters and, while school lunches are relatively healthy these days, I’d hate to have to pay for something knowing that my children wouldn’t […]...

Fall desserts!  I’m always on the lookout for new and delicious desserts I can add to my holiday menu.  That’s why I was so excited to try Duncan Hines’ newest dessert mixes.  My family and I sampled the Red Velvet Decadent  Brownie Mix, the Autumn […]...

Fresh fruit in our home doesn’t stick around long, especially peaches. Imagine my surprise when I was able to try a box of fresh Oregon peaches from The Fruit Company! The Oregon Peaches were so delicious!  They were plump, juicy and HUGE!  I certainly can’t find peaches like that in my local grocery market.  Honestly, […]...

Oh, hello deliciousness! Made with only the finest, natural peanut butter, honey and flavor favorites, PB Crave takes peanut butter to the […]...
