beer-of-the-month-club

This post brought to you by Great Clubs. The content and opinions expressed below are that of Food Family & Finds. When it comes to gift giving, I always find it's the men in my life that are the hardest to shop for. My dad was always picky with no real wants or needs and my husband is even more mysterious. He's not the type to drop hints which leaves me forced to play the guessing game. That usually involves me writing down a list of his … [Read more...]

Caramel Pretzel Pumpkins #WiltonTreatTeam

Now as an adult, I love it because of all the fun treats I get to bake for my kids.

Chicken and Vegetable Fettuccine Alfredo Dinner Recipe

Calphalon provided me with the products featured. In my kitchen, there's something I love more than anything else when it comes time to cook our family meals.

However, I just adore it because it's home to my eclectic collection of pots, pans and … [Read more...]

I have officially vowed to NEVER complain about winter ever again. I don't care how cold it gets, I won't complain because I'm about to whine my way through a really hot summer. This snow bunny was not meant to endure 80+ degree days (don't laugh). I know for some of the Southern folks that the 80's feel amazing but anything over 75 or so is reaching my melting point. Thank goodness for things like ice cream, shaved ice and air conditioning. … [Read more...]
