When my daughter got closer and closer to the age where she would be starting to eat solid food, I began searching for the best options for her.  Her older sister had a food allergy, so it made me even more selective in what foods we would start her with.  It is also advised to […]...

Last night we watched the premier episode of MasterChef Junior on FOX. It was so good! My seven year old was absolutely enthralled and it’s even inspired her to get a little creative in the kitchen – although it will be under my supervision! MasterChef Junior gives the best junior home cooks in America the […]...

Brrrrrrrr….it is cold outside (I think the high today was only 5 degrees) and there are a few inches of snow on the ground.  It was the perfect day to stay snuggled up in bed with a bunch of blankets, but I had to go to work instead.  Despite bundling up with coat, gloves, earmuffs, and […]...

This time of year makes me so happy.  I love decorating for Christmas, shopping for the perfect gifts for my family and friends, Christmas carols, spending time with loved ones, and even snow (well…sometimes).  And the thing that I love most about this time of year is the holiday treats!  Cookies, candy, fudge, nuts, popcorn […]...

Splenda 365 #Sweetswaps I absolutely love to bake. I love to eat the things I bake. What I don’t like is eating all of the things I bake because although they taste good, the ingredients aren’t always the healthiest. I try to modify recipes when I can, and sometimes they turn out better than other […]...

The holidays are almost here! Can you believe it? Next week we will be welcoming back Hanukkah, and soon thereafter we will finally have reason to celebrate the fun that is Christmas!

Finding healthy, yummy snacks my whole family can enjoy is a bit of a challenge. My husband likes salty foods, I enjoy sweet foods, and my seven year old is incredibly picky. Add onto that the fact that we’re on a tight budget, and let’s just say our shopping list isn’t very diverse. Luckily, I […]...

Holiday Sweet and Salty Snack Mix Sweet & Salty always go great together (at least in my book!). I absolutely love chocolate covered pretzels and chocolate covered potato chips, so I decided to make a scrumptious holiday mix using my favorite flavors. I started by breaking stick pretzels in half and dipping each in chocolate […]...

I am a big tea drinker.  It is great any time of year – iced tea during the warm months and hot tea during the cold months.  I usually only drink the plain old black tea (sweetened of course), but lately I have been getting into different flavors of tea. That is why I was […]...

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 […]...

Then, as the holidays near, snacking often takes a turn toward overindulgence. This year, let’s break the cycle. Instead of caving into […]...
