The McCormick Look Book
I am always on the look out for new recipes to try. I especially like changing up some of the standing recipes that we have in our house. I am addicted to flipping through recipes online and I love having the internet as a resource to create new things for my family. McCormick has been a long standing name in my kitchen. Over half of my spice selection contains McCormick, my baking cabinet has vanilla, various flavored extracts, cinnamon, and nutmeg all with the classic red McCormick lid and name. McCormick also has a great resource online ...
My Five Days of BelVita Breakfast
The kids have been sick and when they are sick, I get very little sleep. The mornings come all to fast and then I hear that little whisper in my ear "mom, it's time to get up." I am usually less than enthusiastic since it feels like I just went to bed. Our morning routine consists of me getting to the kitchen, getting the boys set up with a drink, and whatever they decide on having for breakfast. Most days I don't even remember to feed myself until noon, when my stomach reminds me that I am past hungry. There isn't ...
Listerine Oral Care Challenge
We all know that the dental chair isn't always that much fun, so I like to spend as little time there as possible. I am petrified of the dentist, in fact I even took an 18 year hiatus from the dental chair as a result of a negative experience. After I worked up the nerve to go, I had to spend the better half of last year getting a few cavities filled and even the dreaded root canal and was also informed that I have periodontal disease. Since then, I have vowed to make sure I don't transfer my fears ...
Dark Raspberry Dove Chocolate Cupcakes With Raspberry Buttercream
I was thinking of ways to wish you all Happy Valentine's Day, or just wish you all a happy day. So my taste buds decided to take over. I have an addiction to thee new Dove chocolates that I found in the store one day while I was crabby, PMS'ing and needed chocolate. If you haven't tried them, they are the Dove Raspberry Dark Chocolate Promises. They are the perfect ratio of chocolate to raspberry and I have to hide my stash in the house. So I decided, what if I put these in a chocolate cupcake for Valentine's Day, or ...
GeneralBaby At 40
Tweet I have been away for awhile, simply because I have been enjoying our newest addition to the family. Outside of the enjoyment, I have been just dragging my tail a bit after the birth of my third child. Having a baby at 40, is a lot harder than when I had the boys at 33. Things hurt, that I didn’t think were possible in areas that I... [Read more]November Is National Bread Month!
Tweet Bread is a staple in our house. We can sometimes go through up to four loaves of bread in a week. My husband likes to eat bread plain, toasted, and with sandwiches and I am always making sandwiches for the boys to pack in their lunch. Bread is one of those things that can be versatile in meals and even recipes. In fact, it is a primary... [Read more]Not A Typical Where Have I Been Post
Tweet I guess it has been awhile since I have posted anything personal on my blog. Life has been crazy over the past months, and I honestly don’t know where to begin. The boys started school, so that has had me running a whole lot more than I am used to. It seems like once they start school you are running to a classroom event, here and... [Read more]Crock Pot Pork Roast Recipe Using Costco Pork Sirloin Tip Roast
Tweet Costco is running a great deal on pork this month and as part of a project to promote the National Pork Board I am posting one of my favorite recipes using my trusty crock pot and a Sirloin Tip Roast from Costco. Pork is considered the “other white meat” and it is relatively easy to prepare. I recently made a trip to my local Costco... [Read more]Costco Offering Great Deals On Pork This Month $50 Costco Cash Giveaway
Tweet I used to be intimidated by making pork of any kind, although I have always liked when my Mom made pork roasts for family dinners. They are so good and aren’t nearly as dry as eating a beef roast. After I got married, I started experimenting with different cuts of pork throughout our marriage and eventually I came up with... [Read more]Fresh From The Garden
Tweet With this crazy lack of rain, I wasn’t sure that I could grow much of anything this year. My pepper plants are still looking a little sad, they are growing peppers but the plant isn’t growing upwards. This year we planted some carrots, celery (which the rabbits have eaten), broccoli, three types of tomatoes, potatoes, basil, thyme,... [Read more]Summer Is Busy
Tweet I have been one very busy mama, and that means I rarely sit down in the Summer months. There is so much happening with our family, and all really fun and exciting stuff. Summer is one of my favorite times. The warmer weather means we head outdoors as a family and rarely see the inside of the house until the sun goes down. I have been tending... [Read more]Seasoned
Tweet I can remember when I used to freak out when the boys got hurt. One time when they were toddlers, one of the boys pulled a chair down on them and a goose egg grew the size of a golf ball out of his head. I can remember sitting on the floor next the freezer with a bag of frozen peas hysterical. I think I was crying just as much as he was,... [Read more]Read More Posts From This Category
