EAT: #SpreadCheer + $20 Gift Card GIVEAWAY (CLOSED)

By on

Thank you Betty Crocker for sponsoring this post.

What is more fun than making cookies for your best friends? Nothing when you are a cute 4 year old little boy. 

Last night the kids and I decided to bake some Betty Crocker sugar cookies and decorate them for our neighbors. I thought it would be a good idea to let them decorate them but in the end they ended up eating everything and getting slobber all over the spoons and candy. Super delicious. 

While they were busy spreading icing all over their faces and shoving cookies in their mouths I made some Christmas theme cookies. First I made two reindeers and then a wreath and tree cookie. I am obsessed with the reindeer cookies. 

Ace was so excited to bring the cookies to our neighbors too. He just loves his new little friends so it was nice to be able to give them a special treat. We used these super adorable cookie gift tags to personalize the gift box.  They also have really cute coloring pages and recipes for some fun holiday activities. Oh and don’t forget to download a coupon!

Giveaway: $100 William Sonoma Gift Card & $50 Van’s Prize Pack!

By on November 18, 2015
Habit Help from Van’s 
 This is the time of year when things can get a little bit hectic. Fall commitments are in full swing and days are shorter – in what seems like more ways than one. Add in a quickly approaching holiday season, and it can seem impossible to get everything done. I know it feels like it’s non-stop from here to New Years! When we feel over-busy, it can be tempting to abandon good habits in the name of convenience. But of course that’s not good for anyone. That’s where Van’s can help – with wholesome, delicious options that are super-convenient for even the craziest of times. Take our new cereals. They’re made from a gluten-free whole grain blend, with deliciously indulgent flavors: Blissfully Berry and Cocoa Sensation. Yes, they’re wonderful with just milk and fruit – a super-easy, super-fast breakfast.
 But they’re also perfect to keep on-hand for snack time – in the pantry, in lunch boxes, even in the car. And because they bring a full serving of whole grains – and 5 grams of fiber – per serving, they’re a snack parents can feel good about.   They’re crunchily delicious atop sliced apples and peanut butter. . . bagelvans 
 Perfect in a fruit and yogurt parfait . . . vansparfait
And fabulous for snack mixes, like these from blogger Silvana Nardone. vansmix So pick up a box or two, and find out for yourself how tasty they are . . . and don’t forget to share! vansprize This month, Van’s is offering you a chance to win the new cereals along with a few other prizes.

Recipe: The Busy Mom’s Chili Recipe + a GIVEAWAY

By on November 5, 2015

Growing up my Mom wasn’t the Mom who cooked every meal from scratch. She worked full time and the days she worked often went past dinner. Fortunately she was off three days during the week so those days, while she was busy, she always managed to make something delicious. My all time favorite meal that she made was chili. I used to always ask her to make it for my birthday too. 
A staple for this recipe is Ragu Chunky Combination. It gives a little something extra than just plan tomato sauce. This sauce is a homemade recipe by Assunta Cantisano. She brought the recipe over from Italy and the neighbors quickly spread the word on her amazing sauce.
Here is a really quick and easy recipe for all you busy parents out there!

24 oz jar of Ragu Chunky Garden Combination Sauce
1lb ground turkey meat (or beef)
1 can Diced Tomatoes
1 can of Kidney Beans
Chili Seasoning
Spaghetti Noodles
Shredded Cheddar Cheese

  1. Cook the spaghetti and ground turkey. 
  2. Strain pasta and put to the side.
  3. In the same pain as the ground turkey pour in the tomatoes, beans, pasta sauce, and chili seasoning. 
  4. Then mix them together. 
  5. Let them simmer for about 10 minutes. 
  6. Mix with spaghetti and your done! 

Easy right? This is seriously the fastest and easiest way to jazz up your regular spaghetti night. 
Now you can enter TWO giveaways! Click HERE and enter the Ready. Set. Cook! contest.

EAT: Halloween Mummy Dogs + a GIVEAWAY!

By on October 17, 2015

Friday nights I always try to do something fun with the kids. Even if it’s as simple as getting a movie and eating something out of the ordinary to kick off the weekend. 

Last week was a long week at work since we were doing testing so I really wanted to just do something that was easy but still felt like we weren’t just sitting around at home. Branden and Ace went to the store and got a movie (only $0.50 from RedBox!), some hot dogs, meatballs and some Pillsbury Crescent Rolls so we could make something fun! 

We found this super cute recipe on how to make Mummy Dogs and Mummy Meatballs. It’s really easy and your kids can help you make them. For all the details click HERE. You can also get $1.00 off of 2 Pillsbury Refrigerated Baked Goods Products from October 1st – October 30th.
Everly is what we call our garbage disposal. She eats anything and everything and she eats it fast. I actually looked over at her and didn’t see her food anymore and asked Branden if she dropped it but nope, she ate it that fast. It’s scary, really. She obviously loved these and wanted seconds, ha! 
 Ashlyn is my pickiest eater so I was surprised she ate them. I think she has only had a hot dog once and she rarely likes meat so it was a shocker that she finished hers and asked for a Mummy Meatball also!

Mummy Dogs and a Mummy Meatball!

Ace had so much fun with these Mummy Dogs. He loved that they had eyes. It was also a good way for him to try mustard since he usually sticks to ketchup. We gave him a fork and he would dip it in the mustard to put eyes or hair on his mummy after he licked it off. 
Thanks for checking out my post. Now Enter to win a PayPal Gift Card!

My Fall Favorites + a GIVEAWAY!

By on October 9, 2015

Fall is one of my most favorite times of year! There are so many things to love about Fall and these are mine!

1. Pumpkin Spice Lattes. I know I am not alone in this one. Who doesn’t love that warm Fall flavor? 
2. Pumpkin Patches. Here we don’t have real ones so we head over to a local Farmers Market with my Mommy friends and Ace’s besties and pick out pumpkins for them to paint. We look forward to this every year. Ace has been talking about it pretty much since we left last year. 

3. Cool weather. Another thing we don’t have is that true Fall weather. But we do get a nice breeze and clear skies. The humidity goes down and we can stand outside without dripping sweat. It’s perfection. 

4. Bangles. Have you seen these amazing bangles from LaCkore Couture? I am obsessed with them and can not get enough of them. They are the perfect accessory for Fall. I need all of them! 

5. Chili & Soups! Ok so my friends from anywhere other than Florida always make fun of me for making soups or chili. They say it’s weird to eat it when it isn’t cold but if I waited for it to be cold I would eat it two days out of the year. So I like to break the crock pot out and make some. If I don’t have time and need a quick fix I can always rely on trusty Progresso Chicken Noodle Soup! I mean what doesn’t bring you back to the good old days faster than that? I just love a hot bowl of soup and watching a movie. The girls eat this up like it’s the best thing ever! My favorite though is definitely the Rich & Hearty Clam Chowder. So delicious!!

5. HOCUS POCUS! This is a Fall must watch every.single.year. In fact I bought it this year because last year I missed when it played on TV. Talk about being bummed. Never again will that happen. 
So what are some of your Fall Favorites?
