Holiday parties are in full swing and if you’re looking for an easy and delicious elegant holiday spread, look no further! I love to entertain our friends and family over the holiday’s and having the best spread is my mission every year. I like to switch it up and add a variety and something new each time to keep our guests guessing. This year, we’re featuring the new Boar’s Head Hummus to add a little simplicity to the table.   With three kids, I can’t be as a Martha Stewart as I used to be, so I like...

  Our little lady just turned five months – HOORAY! I know, I know; I have yet to share her birth story or many pictures on here. Being a mommy of three has certainly had its challenges juggling different school schedules and activities, but we’ve also had quite the breastfeeding journey. Since she was born, nursing this third time around seemed to go so perfectly. She latched on right away, my milk came right in, and at her first checkup and one and two month checkups she gained perfectly. All of that perfection came...

Eating around the dinner table as a family of four seems to happen less and less these days. Between dance class, soccer practice, late work nights, kindergarten demands, and a new baby about to arrive; it seems our schedules have us on a more chaotic and fast paced dinner routine than I would like more often than not.

I’m so excited to share with you a fun new partnership between two...

Being on a kindergarten schedule this year has seriously thrown our family for a loop. We’ve gone from having to have the kiddos ready and at preschool by 9:30am, to having to have my son fed, dressed, and out the door by 7:15. On top of that, this mom is pregnant and exhausted and daddy has to be out the door at the same time as the little guy to head to work. Can you imagine the chaos that ensues in our house on a regular day-to-day basis? While my kids would probably be okay skipping breakfast completely and grabbing something...

Thanks to Viva Italia Days at Publix: Hunts Tomatoes, Progresso™ Brand Products, Kraft Parmesan Cheese, Pillsbury™ Refrigerated Breads, Betty Crocker™ Cookies for sponsoring today’s discussion.   Sometimes, coming up with a meal the whole family will enjoy is a task. My husband is a huge meat eater; me? Not so much. My kids have turned into the picky eaters I always prided myself they weren’t and sometimes, deciding on what to make for dinner is a headache. The one thing the whole family loves is a good pizza and...

Well I created something delicious this evening. I found a recipe for hot chocolate cupcakes online and marshmallow icing that I switched up a little bit to make my own! I decided I wanted to try our stevia over sugar this time in an attempt to go more natural with my baking. To my surprise.. it was delicious! I opted for Stevia in the Raw over the other brands based on the ingredients. My research told me to be sure to read the ingredients and I was surprised to still find artificial ingredients in some stevia products. I went with Stevia...
