A Back To School Lunch Your Child Will Love

This #BackToSchoolSImple shop has been compensated by #CollectiveBias Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. Only 18 more days until my two oldest daughters head back to school.  It’s hard to believe I will be driving a third grader and first grader to school this year.  A few days ago I took them to get all of their school supplies and while we were at it decided to make a trip through Giant Eagle to get some ideas for school lunches.  I really prefer to do my grocery shopping at Giant Eagle because they have a great selection … …..

Grill Out this Summer with Super Cheesy Stuffed Gourmet Burgers

This #SummerofGrilling shop has been compensated by #CollectiveBias Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. One of my favorite things about summer is grilling out.  While the hubby mans the grill our girls have fun playing in the backyard.  Plus there’s just nothing better than enjoying a big juicy cheeseburger fresh off the grill with the entire family gathered around the table on our back patio.  But before we can enjoy that yummy food I have to make a stop by the grocery store.  My favorite local retailer for all of my grilling needs is by far Giant … …..

New Snack for Toddlers – Gerber Lil’ Beanies

Last week while her big sisters were at Vacation Bible School in the evening I spent some quality time hanging out with my little Lilah Rose.  One of those evenings we used that time to wander around Target checking out the dollar spot as well as peeking at all of the clearance end caps.  We also swung by the baby food aisle to stock up on some Gerber snacks for Lilah.  All four of my girls have been big fans of Gerber Lil’ Crunchies, but while selecting a few flavors a new product caught my eye on the shelf above.  … …..

Red Baron Pizza – A Timeless Tradition Spanning Decades

Pizza is a timeless tradition whether enjoyed with family or friends – especially Red Baron Pizza which has been around for the past forty years.  Since 1976 it has been a part of countless memories and while surviving many questionable fads still remains the favorite for family pizza nights. I haven’t been around the entire forty years that the deliciousness of Red Baron Pizza has graced our earth, but I can take you back a few decades to the early 90s celebrating my eighth birthday.  I don’t know if my aunt knew what she was getting herself into welcoming a … …..

#SpreadCheer with Betty Crocker {Plus $20 PayPal Giveaway}

One of my favorite movies to watch during the holidays is definitely Elf.  I can’t help but smile every time Buddy says “The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear.”  I’m definitely not a singer, but that isn’t stopping me from spreading Christmas cheer.  I found another way everyone can spread cheer during the holidays regardless if they can carry a tune or not.  Cookies!  Who doesn’t love cookies?!  And the best part is you don’t even have to be talented in the kitchen because Betty Crocker has you covered. Last week Willow and … …..

Veggies Even the Kids Will Love from Birds Eye

I often hear parents discussing picky eaters and how hard it can be to get their children to actually eat a vegetable.  Many parents resort to sneaking those veggies into other foods without the kids noticing.  I consider myself lucky because all four of my girls like veggies regardless if they’re raw or cooked.  I try to make sure we have a vegetable at every meal but with our busy lifestyle it can be hard to prepare homemade veggies all the time.  For this reason Birds Eye is my go to for frozen vegetables. When I pop a bag of … …..

Party Like a Pro During the Holidays with Sam’s Club

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Sam’s Club. The opinions and text are all mine. The best part of the upcoming months is all of the holidays we get to celebrate.  I love spending time with family and friends while feasting on yummy food.  What I don’t love is running around like a crazy person to a bunch of different stores to get everything I need to throw the perfect party or gathering.  But now that I have a Sam’s Club membership I only have to make one stop and I’m set. If you want … …..

Klondike Kandy Bars – Perfection in a Thick Chocolate Shell

This post was sponsored by Klondike as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review. Just because summer has come to an end doesn’t mean that enjoying ice cream needs to come to an end too.  In fact I think it’s even more enjoyable to eat ice cream now because I don’t have to worry about it melting immediately.  Recently I was grocery shopping at Walmart and decided to grab some Klondike Bars.  That’s when I realized that Klondike has really expanded from the thick chocolatey Klondike shell and creamy vanilla ice … …..

Easy Cheesy Salsa Dip – Perfect for Sharing

This #NaturallyCheesy shop has been compensated by #CollectiveBias Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. Autumn is by far my favorite time of the year.  I love everything about it.  The leaves changing colors and gracefully falling to the ground.  The best is driving while the leaves are blowing in the wind and across the roads.  Or going for a hike through the woods and hearing the crunch of leaves underneath your feet.  And all of the delicious fall foods.  Pumpkin everything.  Apple cider.  Soup. Cornbread and chili.  Of course everything gets even better when Kraft Natural Shredded … …..

Celebrate Everyday with Duncan Hines Perfect Size Cakes

Why is it that cake seems to be a dessert reserved for special occasions with large groups of people?  Birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, baby showers, graduations.  What about when we want to celebrate a good report card, winning a soccer game, or maybe have cake just because we want cake? Hehe.  For those times I tend to buy a box of cake mix and whip up a quick cake at home.  But after we each have a piece there is still over half a 13×9 cake left.  And even though I don’t need anymore I find myself going back for seconds … …..
