Lately, I have been hungry all the time.  I don’t know why, but I do know that the last thing I want to be doing is eating all day long.  And the last thing I need is junk food.  I want snacks that will satisfy my hunger, but they also need to be healthy. I […]...

My girls can be picky eaters at times.  Unfortunately, they take after their parents – both my husband and I are picky eaters as well.  There are certain foods that I never want to see on my plate.  However, as a mother, I want to make sure that my children are getting the nutrients they […]...

Anyone who knows me, knows that I am a coffee fiend. No really, I LOVE coffee, and just cannot do without it. Plus I’m not really a nice person when I don’t have my coffee – just ask my husband. In light of how grumpy I can be without coffee, I drink it on a […]...

With school now in full swing and the holidays just around the corner, snack time can easily turn into trouble. When it comes to school lunches, snacks tend to be whatever is convenient. Then, as the holidays near, snacking often takes a turn toward overindulgence. This year, let’s break the cycle. Instead of caving into […]...

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 […]...

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 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.
