Back to School with Krusteaz

Back to school is a glorious time of year!

My little boy Remington started kindergarten this year and my oldest is in 2nd grade. My husband and I walked our boys to school for the first day they were excited and nervous. Then my husband headed to work and I took my little girl and …

An Announcement and a GIVEAWAY you won’t want to miss!

Grilled Chicken Salad with Candied Walnuts

Grilled Chicken Salad with Candied Walnuts

I feel like there is hardly any brands that offer candied nuts. When I run out of Santé Nuts I try to make my own and they are fine but they are never perfect. Some are too sweet, some get a little burnt, and some aren’t sweet enough. So …
