Rocky Mountain National Park

The J.M. Smucker Company sent me free product samples and asked me to blog about this product. A few weeks ago, our family took our first road trip of the summer. It was actually more like an adventure as we brought along some of our extended family and set out to drive across the country to Colorado.

Cinnamon Apple Oatmeal Packets with #HorizonB2S

Back to school season is one of my favorite times of the whole year. It's a welcome break from the daily rituals and never-ending pleas from three kids that are insanely bored. However, it does come with a new set of responsibilities that can be daunting if you don't have a great plan in place.

Sausage Cheddar Drop Biscuits Recipe #JDCrumbles FoodFamilyFinds

Breakfast is a tricky meal around our house. Most of the time, I try to just skip it altogether during the week. I have gotten better about it with making fruit smoothies, but it's still my least favorite meal of the day. Even our kids aren't big on breakfast.
