Seattle, IFBC and Krusteaz

One of my favorite parts of being involved in Krusteaz Baker’s Dozen is the annual trip to Seattle to visit the Krusteaz facility and the IFBC conference. The International Food Bloggers Conference (IFBC) was my very first conference that I ever went to. I was able to connect with other food bloggers, brands, and the other members of the Baker’s Dozen team! This year was no exception. I was able to meet more of the new 360 pr company members and spend time at the Krusteaz facility and at the conference. This year when I got there and had a …

Creamy Bean Dip

Football season has started and I am always looking for fun new recipes to enjoy during the game while the men watch football. Ill be completely honest I really don’t mind watching football with my husband, dad, or brothers. I grew up playing sports and have had a love for them my entire life. I usually understand what is going on while watching or playing different sports. With that being said I love any type of fun appetizer food. I love ordering appetizer when I am out to eat even though I am pretty sure that my husband always looks …

Raspberries and Cream Pie

This time of year I always start thinking of pies. I love making mini pies but rarely make a whole pie. Maybe because I like how little pies look and maybe it is so I can portion control and not sit and eat half of a pie by myself. But whatever it is pies are delicious. I make a similar pie to this one with blueberries. I have made both of these pies countless times. And each and every time they turning out yummy. Sometimes they are more set up then other times but on this occasion it came out …

Creamy White Chicken Chili

We have not always been one of those families who eat super regularly. I don’t know if its because it doesn’t get very cold in Arizona or what but I make soup occasionally. Mostly when it is raining or when I am craving it. I recently found out that my oldest son who is 7 loves chili. It never was his favorite food until recently. The funny thing is that he asked for chili dogs all the time. But then just asks for a bowl of chili and no hot dog. We had chili dogs at his 1st birthday and …

Four Things You May Not Know About Milk

Ever since my children were little milk has been their favorite drink. None of my children were juice drinks and always preferred milk in their sip cups. When they hit about 4 they start to drink less milk. Unfortunately I have never been a milk lover. A couple of weeks ago I was invited to be a part of a special milk campaign. It opened my eyes in ways that I never could have thought. Ever since then I have been more aware of ways that I can make sure that myself and my 3 children get enough milk in …

Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World

When I began planning my families trip to Orlando a few weeks ago I realized that we would need a place to stay close to Disney World when we first arrived in the Orlando area for our 6 day vacation. Before I even looked at the Disney World resort hotels I looked to see if their was a Four Seasons Resort in the area. I am a Four Seasons lover through and through. I love staying at their amazing locations and I believe that their hotels have some of the best costumer service when compared to other resorts that I …

Chicken and Veggies Kabobs with Tzatziki Sauce

Our family loves kabobs. I feel like my kids eat more of their dinner when it is on a stick then any other form. I could have the same exact dish just on my kids plate and they wouldn’t touch it but put it on a kabob and they are all for it! These plate has a few of my favorite things to eat on it. This loaded Italian salad is a personal favorite. I keep all the ingredients in my fridge and serve this weekly with our meals. It is my husbands favorite salad right now and usually ends …

Amazing French Toast with Buttermilk Syrup

Breakfast is everyones favorite meal in our house. Or should I say breakfast foods are everyones favorite meal in our house. It is the meal that when I make I know everyone will devour! So not only do we have fun making breakfast on the weekends together as a family, breakfast for dinner is a regular in our home. At dinner the other night my oldest son told me that a little neighbor girl said that she always wants to eat dinner at our house because we have fun things like french toast and waffles for dinner. I couldn’t help …

The Best SUPER HERO Snack Around

 This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #MARVELSnackBar #CollectiveBias School has been underway here for almost the past month. Which means lots of school lunch packing to do and making sure there is a snack in each of my boys backpacks. It is hard finding a snack that my kids like that they think is also “cool” when I came across these Marvel Chewy Granola bars at Target I knew that both of my boys would freak! I may have grabbed 6 boxes for my 2 boys for snacks and …

What Happens On An Organic Dairy Farm?

A couple of weeks ago I went on a very last minute trip to Maine, Vermont, and New Hampshire to visit Stonyfield Organics organic dairy farms. I am a part of one of their blogger groups and have loved working with them and have always loved their products for myself but especially for my children. But after this trip I have realized the amazing health benefits for my entire family with eating an organic diet. My eyes have been wide open! We spent 4 days road tripping through Maine, Vermont and New Hampshire and visited 3 different farms. Two of …
