Snack Healthy with Taste of Nature Bars


  A couple weeks ago I made a pledge to snack healthy with Taste of Nature Bars. I, like others, fail when making huge {and oftentimes unattainable} resolutions. That's a lot of pressure to put onto oneself! I have learned through the years that small choices are more likely to succeed, like 'slow and steady wins the race'. In my pledge, I vowed to change my terrible snacking habits and have incorporated one … [Read more...]

M&M Cookie Bars

dream kitchen makeover contest finish

  When it comes to houses that make our home, I'm really picky with the kitchen. More than just a place to cook, it really IS the heart of the home. Have company? Somehow you end up in the kitchen. Homework to be done? Chances are my daughter is leaning up at the kitchen counter. More so than any other room, we always gravitate to the kitchen. Compared to the kitchen in our last home, our current one is a … [Read more...]

The Importance of the Family Dinner

Things like: slowing down life and checking out flowers with the kids instead of dragging them quickly to the … [Read more...]

Lunchbox Makeover with Milk Unleashed {Contest}


  The popular saying is true, "He/she went for milk, and never came back." I do this often, at least 2-3 times per week actually. Truth be told, I do return. Yet it's always later than expected, along with bags and bags of other things I grab on my way to get that milk. Imagine if we didn't have to go for milk as often as we do?! I can't even fathom the time and energy {along with money} I'd … [Read more...]
