I Spy With My Little Eye…a Quick Dinner Option for Summer Nights #familydinner #familygamenight

Even in the most ideal and favorable circumstances, cooking dinner is not my favorite activity. During the school year, I cobble together reasonably decent meals for my family. Come summer all bets are off. My school administrator husband steps up and manages dinner prep for most of the summer when he is home from...

Summer Grillin’! #ReadySetRibs #WeaveMade #Ad

Disclosure: This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Weave Made Media, and Farmland/Smithfield, but all my opinions are my own. #WeaveMade #ReadySetRibs http://my-disclosur.es/RgFrEH I’m not a good cook in the kitchen. I’m not even a good grill cook. I lack some sort of innate gene when it comes to...

Can I Have Chocolate with My Chocolate Cake?

I have a love-hate relationship with Costco chocolate sheet cake. There I said it. I love that the cakes are big enough to feed an army or at least a house load of party guests. I love the cakes adorned with roses, icing ribbons, and other decorative features. When a birthday party guest, squealed...

Today Only! Celebrate National Mom’s Nite Out with Papa Murphy’s Pizza! #PapaMurphysMNO

Have I mentioned that I don’t like to cook? That the mere thought of preparing dinner on a busy school night sends me off the deep end? Have I mentioned that I work from home, drive a carpool, and have a kids in a multitude of activities? Probably only about a thousand times, right?!...

New Nature Valley Breakfast Biscuits, Protein Bars at Target #NewNatureValley #PlatefullCoop #spon

I’m often on the prowl for something yummy to eat. I like to nibble. And gnaw. And gum. And chew on tasty morsels. Not all the time. But when I get a craving for something, I need it nwo. I usually eat savory and salty snacks, but not always. Lately I have had a...

Giving Back: Starting a Family Tradition (Part 2)

Giving back. I teach my children to give back. I encourage them to bring in food donations…toys for an adopted family…mittens for the “Christmas Glove Tree.” Basically, if the school or church asks for items, I’m happy to provide items. I lead by example. I show them that I donate clothes, toys, and household...

Don’t You Eat Breakfast with Super Heroes?

My childhood was nomadic. No, really. I am not exaggerating when I say that I moved around a lot. I lived in England, America, and Italy. A few years in each country. We were continually moving back and forth across the Atlantic. I became, and still am, VERY adaptable. Moving from place to place...

Pie-jacking, Homework, Carpools, Oh My

Update on PieGate: The pie I dropped off on Friday that went missing? Was delivered to her teacher by another student. Faith restored that her pie was not in fact jacked on Pi Day. Funny of the day? A school administrator told me that ONE HUNDRED PIES were dropped off at the school office...
