Take Snack Time to New Heights with Super Snack Packs®

Super snack pack

This post brought to you by Walmart. All opinions are 100% mine. I remember when I was a kid, opening my lunch box and seeing a Snack Packs® pudding in there was like the best thing ever. I think licking the chocolaty goodness off that lid is a favorite memory from everyone’s childhood! I love that Snack Packs® has stayed delicious all these years, and now my own son gets to experience the same memories. Since it’s pretty much just me and him, I love connecting with him through familiar favorites from my own childhood. We always keep Snack Packs® […] Read more »

Velveeta 2

This post brought to you by Sam’s Club. All opinions are 100% mine. With the big game coming up, not to mention all the holidays and birthdays (I tell you, it seems like at least half the people in my family were born from May to August!), I find myself looking for quick and simple recipes that can feed a crowd. Thanks to Sam's Club, Velveeta Cheese & Rotel, I don't have to look very far! Sam's Club shares some really great recipes for game night creations, so I headed over there to take a peek. I picked the Famous […] Read more »

Everything You Need for the Best Sunday Dinner Ever

Sunday Dinner Essentials

This post is brought to you in partnership with Foodie.com and Glam Media. All opinions are my own. Spring is HERE! It’s really, finally truly here! You know what that means, right? No more crazy snow storms keeping you from family get-togethers! See, I live in the Poconos of Pennsylvania. My brother lives in northern Maryland, one aunt in NJ, one in NY and one out by Harrisburg. Basically, we are ALL in the snow belt. We all got slammed this winter. That made it incredibly difficult to plan family gatherings. With Easter coming soon, that’s finally about to change. […] Read more »

Creativity in the Kitchen Leads to Brilliant Lay’s Potato Chip Flavors! #DoUsAFlavor

Creative in the Kitchen

I participated in an Ambassador Activation on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Lay’s. I received a promotional item to thank me for participating. Some of the best Lay’s Potato Chip flavors have come from creativity in the kitchen. If no one ever thought to put sour cream on a potato, for example, would we have the delicious Sour Cream & Onion flavor? What if no one ever invented barbecue sauce? Not only would we be missing out on a delicious topping for chicken, but we wouldn’t have yummy BBQ chips! So it makes sense that Lay’s is asking consumers […] Read more »

Dark Chocolate Banana-Strawberry Smoothie Recipe


I love smoothies because you can pretty much throw just about anything in a blender and come out with a delicious drink. Well, maybe not anything. Still, you have like this massive range of options! At any given time, I know I have at least something in my house that will go great in a smoothie recipe. The other night I was in the mood for something but couldn’t decide what. I knew I wanted something with bananas in it, but I didn’t have the right stuff to make anything really fancy. I’ve had the flu (or a really bad […] Read more »

Creamy Garlic Parmesan Pasta Recipe: My Idea of the Perfect Lay’s Chip Flavor #DoUsAFlavor

Creamy Garlic & Parmesan Pasta

I participated in an Ambassador Activation on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Lay’s. I received a promotional item to thank me for participating. Being a work-at-home mom is tough! I love it and wouldn’t change it for anything, but between caring for my son and working 10+ hour days at the computer, I feel like I rarely have any “me” time. When I do get down time, I spend it looking for ways to maximize my “up” time! Looking for new post ideas, networking, etc. It really gets to the point where I have to literally force myself to […] Read more »

A Dozen Divine Pies: I’ll Take One of Each Please!

Divine Pies

This divine pies post is brought to you by Foodie.com. All opinions, of course, are my very own. I love pies. Love them! Who the heck doesn’t, right? I mean they’re pies, for crying out loud! When Foodie.com asked if I wanted to collect a dozen pies of any kind to showcase in honor of Pi day (3/14, because Pi is 3.14somethingsomethingsomethinginfinity), I said “(expletive deleted) yeah!” Well, actually, I filled out a form indicating my interest, but in my head I said that. Pie! Woohoo!! Check out my pics for the most Divine Pies on the net (up there, […] Read more »

MunchPak Snack Box

Today I’m talking snacks! This snack attack missive is brought to you in part by MunchPak. In so much as MunchPak sent me a box of yum to try out. The opinions, random thoughts and diatribe about real snacks are all my own. I love a good snacky treat. I’m kind of like Scooby-Doo and Shaggy that way. Snacks are just fun! They’re a nice break in between those three big meals that are supposed to be healthy. They’re a great treat after a rough day. Oh sure, you’re supposed to make sure all your snacks are under X amount […] Read more »

Honey Bunches of Oats Morning Energy: So Good, Bananas Not Required #MorningEnergy

Post Chocolate 1

This post brought to you by Honey Bunches of Oats. All opinions are 100% mine. If I had to eat just one type of food for the rest of my life, I would choose cereal. I can eat it for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snack. Here’s the thing, though: I’m a super picky cereal eater. I’m REALLY trying to eat healthier, which means going with more “grown up” cereals. You know, basically letting go of anything with a cartoon character on the box! The thing is, some of those healthier cereals just aren’t exactly exciting, so I add bananas. If […] Read more »
