Chicken & Veggie Fettuccine Alfredo Recipe with Calphalon Contemporary Cookware

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. It's a simple pot rack hanging just above the island countertop. My husband might disagree as he often finds his forehead making unfortunate meetings with the pots that dangle from the rack. However, I just adore it because it's home to my eclectic collection of pots, pans and … [Read more...]

OREO Overload Edible Ice Cream Bowls Recipe #WiltonTreatTeam

Oreo Overload Edible Ice Cream Bowls Recipe #WiltonTreatTeam

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...]

Food Find | Watermelon Cupcakes and Watermelon Frosting

Betty Crocker Watermelon Cupcakes

About a week ago, I was strolling through Target looking for three things I needed and probably twenty more that I didn't need. That's pretty much how every Target shopping trip goes. You've got this short list in your hand and by the time you get to the checkout lane, you find your cart is full of dozens of things you didn't know you wanted until you got there. Anyways, one of things not on my list was this box of Betty Crocker Watermelon … [Read more...]

The Coolest Coffee Around! #DunkinMugUp

dunkin mug

Cool is so not a word I would ever use to describe myself. Quirky, weird, maybe even odd, those are more my thing. But even though I'm not so cool, I'd say my coffee is. I mean, seriously, how could my Dunkin' Donuts coffee not be cool when it comes in edgy flavors like chocolate glazed donut, blueberry muffin and jelly donut??? I'd say my coffee is even cooler because it gets to hang out in my awesome collection of coffee mugs. You see, I … [Read more...]

5 Minute Veggie Dinner Salad with the Magimix Food Processor

5 Minute Family Sized Veggie Dinner Salad with Magimix Food Processor

I was provided with a product sample to share my experiences. I have this quirky love for preparing dinner. Well, any meal really. Except for breakfast, that one always makes me feel like a crazed short order cook trying to time everything just right. But in general, my favorite part of the meal is preparing the food. I actually find it quite relaxing to slowly dice vegetables, sear meat and watch a pot as it begins to boil. I'd do it every … [Read more...]

Spring Flower Pot Cakes with Double Blooming Sugar Cookies #WiltonTreatTeam

Double Flower Cookie Pops with Cake Flower Pots #WiltonTreatTeam

I've never been much of a hobby person but there is one hobby that I've loved since I could reach the table and help my mom with in the kitchen. BAKING! I'm probably a little weird just for the simple fact that I actually love the process of baking more than eating the end result. And that's why I'm so happy to partner with my all-time favorite baking brand, Wilton, for another year of baking fun. I've been part of the Wilton Mom Brand Ambassador … [Read more...]

Clear & Clean Water with the Laica Mineralbalance water filtration system

laica filtered pitchers

I was provided with a Laica pitcher and filters. For me, drinking water has always been a chore. Water straight from the tap never tastes quite right and bottled water is just too expensive (and wasteful with all of those plastic bottles). I'm far too lazy to hook one of those over-the-faucet filtration systems on my kitchen. So that leaves me with water pitchers. I recently started using the Laica filtration system and it's not your ordinary … [Read more...]

Celebrate Valentine’s Day with #OutbackBestMates Steak Menu for Two Combo

Valentines Day 2014 Combo from Outback Steakhouse #OutbackBestMates

Valentine's Day is a bit of a sore spot for me. In the past, my husband has been less than romantic when it comes to planning our special day together. But that's going to change this year because not only am I not leaving the planning up to him but I'm going to surprise him with a dinner out for just the two of us. This happens so rarely when you have three children! As anĀ Outback Best Mates ambassador, I've been given the unique opportunity … [Read more...]

New Year, New Me? I Hope So! Win with #DunkinMugUp

dunkin mug up january

Every new year I like to think I have a clean slate before me. A fresh set of three hundred and sixty five days where I can choose to be a different person, a better person who makes better choices. This year, like so many others, I want to make better choices for my health. For me, this means saying goodbye to soda, cooking healthier meals and making time for exercise. The exercise part is most important to me at this point. I'm very fortunate … [Read more...]
