Cherry White Chocolate Trifles with Brownies Recipe #LuckyLeafSpring

*sponsored content on behalf of Lucky Leaf After what felt like a never-ending winter, I can finally say it actually FEELS like Spring outside. We've got the windows open, the grass seems to have turned green overnight and my tulips are starting to creep out of the ground. This change in weather makes me want to go outside and have a picnic with my daughter. Since this is her last year home with me before Kindergarten, I'm taking every … [Read more...]

$500 GIVEAWAY | TotalProtect Home Warranty – The Affordable Way to Protect Appliances

tp11

It wasn't until last week that we realized how costly home ownership can be. Actually, it wasn't even as costly as it could have been but it was enough to grab our attention. A small piece of our clothes washer broke. That small piece ended up costing us almost $300 and a week without a washer to to do laundry. We were lucky that we happened to have the extra money at the time but if that had been a larger appliance like the hot water heater or … [Read more...]

Frozen Yogurt PEEPS Bunnies and Chicks for Easter #WiltonTreatTeam #Peepsonality

*This is a partnered post as part of the Wilton Sweet Treat Team of brand ambassadors. These past two weeks have been a whirlwind of doctor appointments, cold bugs and just way too much going on. Before any big holiday, the last thing I want is to be bogged down by so much stuff that it leaves us with no time for fun Easter activities. Stress = NO FUN! That's why we're taking it easy this week, at least trying to. I have even more doctor … [Read more...]

Step Into My Computer Time Machine With Me #IntelAIO

I think about my childhood a lot and even compare it to the one my children are living. My how things have changed! I remember spending a lot of time outside, even in the bitter cold months of winter. When I wasn't outside playing jump rope, hop scotch, kick the can or tag with my neighborhood friends, I'd go inside and play on my old Nintendo. But that wasn't often. Technology was not part of my every day life. In fact, I didn't even own a … [Read more...]

Baking Adventures …. Eclairs

chocolate french eclairs

When I get bored, or stressed, or upset or even lonely ... I bake. I have no super talent at baking, it's just something I like to do and it often relaxes me the same way a glass of wine does for some folks. And when I have no idea how to bake what I want to bake, I turn to my "baking bible". From the most basic to the most fancy baked goods you can imagine, there's a recipe for it in Baking Illustrated. I've never had a recipe from this book … [Read more...]

Slow Cooker Italian Meatball Subs Recipe

This is a partnered post on behalf of Foodie.com by Glam. If I had to pick my favorite day of the week, it would most definitely be Sunday.

It's also the day I get to prepare real family-style meals that we can sit down and enjoy without any rushing around. My favorite Sunday … [Read more...]

Finding the PERFECT Dog for Your Family – MEET TINK! #PredictablePurebreds

6 Month Old Purebred Labrador

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of American Kennel Club. All opinions are 100% mine. For years, I’ve lived with the fact that I’m probably just not a dog person. They’re certainly cute and mostly friendly, but I’ve never had quite the same draw to dogs as I have had with cats. That is, until I met TINK. This adorable and sweet purebred Labrador Retriever puppy instantly captured my … [Read more...]
