Ooey Gooey Candy Corn Chex Mix

  I am absolutely addicted to this stuff. It has been my favorite for years no matter what holiday it is! I am usually not a huge candy corn fan but in this mix I am all about it. I make this with just chex mix but when it is too gooey sometimes I add original life cereal (like I did in the picture above) because that is what I have.

No Bake Pumpkin Peanut Butter Oat Bars

Pumpkin is in full swing over at my house and I could not be happier about it. My husband on the other hand isn’t as much of a pumpkin fan. So i try to limit the amount of full pumpkin treats.

Although if u do each …

The best way to get your serving of milk proteins through out the day

It is also important to sneak in your servings of milk through out the day to insure that you get the amount of protein and vitamins to help your body function and grow at its full potential.

I may have grabbed 6 boxes for my 2 boys for snacks and …

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 …
