Chloraseptic

This post brought to you by Chloraseptic®. The content and opinions expressed below are that of Food Family & Finds. Tis the season for pine scented trees, glittery decorations, warm sugar cookies and the Flu! Personally, I'd much rather enjoy my holiday season without that last nasty present but in a house with three kids in school, it's unavoidable. In the past week our entire house has come down with what I can only guess is two … [Read more...]

Christmas Chocolate Fudge Recipe

Christmas Fantasy Fudge Recipe

We're less than a week away from Christmas and as much as I'd love to say that I'm filled with holiday cheer, I'm mostly filled with sadness. This will be our second Christmas without my dad here to celebrate with us and despite time passing as normally as it can, it still hurts as much as the first, if not more. I can't help but think of the things he's missing out on. The kids all being two years older, their new interests and all the the … [Read more...]

Angel Pillow Cookies Recipe

Angel Pillow Cookies Recipe

This is the weekend I would typically be busy in the kitchen baking up a storm. You'd find me with a pile of dishes, flour in my hair and three children at my side begging for a taste of cookie dough. The problem is, I'm sick. We all are! So I'm sitting back, resting and hoping this virus clears out before Christmas so I can get back to baking our traditional holiday cookies. Among the family favorites, I had hoped to bake some chocolate … [Read more...]

Homegating Made Delicious with Loaded Baked Potato Pinwheels Appetizer Recipe

potatoes pinwheel appetizer

Cool fall weather and football are my husband's favorite part of the season. It gives him a good excuse to pull out the grill and hang out on the couch for hours enjoying his favorite sport and finger foods. Personally, I love the homegating experience because it usually means I don't have to spend a lot of time in the kitchen cooking. I can simply pop one of our favorite Red Baron pizzas in the oven and whip up some hot appetizers. One of our … [Read more...]

Give the Gift for the Man Who Has It All – Beer of the Month Club

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...]

Andes Mints OREO Cookie Balls Recipe

Andes Mints OREO Cookie Balls Recipe

Lately my kids have been absolutely obsessed over cookie balls. They're like a cake pop only way more delicious because they're made with OREO cookies. The ingredients are pretty basic and kids love to help roll out the balls! When it comes to making them, I'm a bit of a perfectionist so I like them to be uniform. Rather than use a tablespoon or guess at how much cookie dough I need, I use my digital kitchen scale. I just plop a hunk of dough … [Read more...]

Double Chocolate Chip Cookies with Ghirardelli Milk Chocolate Drops Recipe

Ghirardelli Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

Earlier this year when our family went on vacation in the Orlando area, we stopped at Downtown Disney (my favorite place on Earth!).

As much as I wanted to buy every darn thing in the store, I settled on a rather large tube of Ghirardelli Milk Chocolate drops. They're like a … [Read more...]
