The Makings of a Perfect Cheese Plate

I have developed what I like to call a healthy obsession with cheese over the last few years. Okay, it may not be healthy. I LOVE trying new cheese which some weeks = a LOT of cheese. :) If you follow me on Instagram I am sure that you have caught my many posts of cheese.  In fact, I have … [Read more...]

Boston Ballet’s The Nutcracker 2014

I have been taking C to The Nutcracker in some form or another ever since she was 3. It has become a tradition of sorts for us. Last year life caught up with us and we just couldn't get there. I don't think I realized quite how much it meant to her to be able to go to The Nutcracker. So this … [Read more...]

Applegate Helps on the Quick and Easy Lunch Front {Review and Giveaway}

The classic scenario in our home in the morning: After pestering the kids to get out of bed on time (and who wants to get out of a bed with a down comforter when the temp is freezing outside?!), I am constantly hurrying everyone around from one "station" to the next. Get dressed, eat breakfast, … [Read more...]

Meatless Pepper Tacos and a #FarmFare Giveaway

At the end of the summer there isn’t much better than cherishing the last of the tomatoes, peppers, onions, and other fresh veggies in your area.

But I knew, this book would take a long time - not the book, the recipes. How could dumplings be quick and easy? They were so...complex. I was … [Read more...]

A Summer of Goodness – How Do You Share Kindness ?

Earlier this summer, I read an article, "Happiness is Contagious". While this study was geared toward heart health, the message was consistent. Be happy and make others happy too. It spreads like wildfire, even to people you don't know. If you've ever been the receiver of a kind act, I am sure … [Read more...]

I always love trying healthy products made by companies with a good story and good values. Recently I got the opportunity to test out some of Dave's Gourmet Pasta Sauces through a giveaway being hosted by USA Lovelist.

Let’s Talk About Oats: OATrageous Oatmeals {Review and OXO Giveaway}

I have mentioned before that I am on a quest to seek out more plant based meals that my family will love. I have to say, there is a bit of a learning curve when it comes to cooking many plant based dishes. That isn't to say that it is hard, but the wide range of things that you can do with many of … [Read more...]
