We upcycle our large containers and use them to hold holiday candy, loose nuts and screws and other goodies. Thanks to Unilever, we took our upcycling one step further. We decided to “Be Our Own Farmer’s […]...

Can you believe that Easter is almost here?  When I was a little girl, PEEPS was one of my favorite Easter candies (other than chocolate of course).  As an adult, I still like snacking on PEEPS, as well as decorating with them.  With the inspiration of Wilton products and PEEPS candies, I created PEEP-A-BOO Easter […]...

In our family, we eat a lot of spaghetti!  In fact, the boys’ faces always light up when I announce that we’re having spaghetti for dinner.  Usually when I make spaghetti, I have to break the noodles in half so they’ll fit in the pot.  Not any more though, since I discovered Anthony’s Pot-Sized Pasta!

Growing up, I don’t remember too many meals together at the dinner table, other than at holidays and on the weekends sometimes.  With a family of my own, I made the decision that I wanted our family to eat together every night (if possible).  It’s not only about enjoying good family together, but also about […]...

Every year, I host an Annual Cookie Exchange and invite our family and friends.  It’s a fun event where we socialize, eat, exchange cookies, eat, laugh, and eat some more!  A big part of the Cookie Exchange is obviously the assortment of cookies that everyone brings, but it’s also the snacks and foods you provide […]...

In our home, dinner is the main meal where I make sure we all sit down at the table together as a family.  I have to admit that I’m not as good with breakfast.  In the mornings, the kids are usually eating breakfast while I’m making lunches and double-checking backpacks to make sure homework, permission […]...
