Fall is here and the smell of cinnamon, pumpkin and other spices is in the air.  I remember how much I loved waking up to the smell of breakfast cooking in the morning when I was a kid.  Ok, so I still do love waking up to the smell of breakfast cooking as an adult. […]...

In our home, dinner is the main meal where I make sure we all sit down at the table together as a family.  I have to admit that I’m not as good with breakfast.  In the mornings, the kids are usually eating breakfast while I’m making lunches and double-checking backpacks to make sure homework, permission […]...

Recently, I shared our experience on The Mommy-Files with the Pillsbury® Funfetti Lil’ Donut Kits and our family.  Our kids love to eat donuts.  Often times, I find myself spending anywhere from $10 to $20 to purchase donuts on Saturday or Sunday morning for our 6 kids.  That can add up pretty fast.  That’s when I discovered the...

With Frank and I starting work as soon as we wake up in the morning and then me getting the kids out the door to school, I am often left with little time to prepare a cooked meal in the morning.  What better way than to prepare a delicious and easy meal ahead of time […]...

I have three boys and Frank has two boys and a girl.  Each of them has gone through (and still goes through) phases where they are picky eaters.  Your little one could be a picky eater because of texture, color, or taste. Heck, I remember growing up and HATING cooked carrots.  Ok, let me just […]...

Growing up, I was constantly told by my parents, “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.”  I can easily say that as a parent myself, our kids do have breakfast every day before going to school.  It isn’t typically eggs, bacon, and pancakes though.  It’s usually cereal, milk and gogurts – because those […]...

You know that old school rule, “Don’t play with your food?”  Well, we kind of threw that out the window recently.  We totally played with our food and created cute holiday characters out of our Tyson Fully Cooked Chicken Nuggets from Sam’s Club!  I didn’t visit our local Sam’s Club, but actually visited a Sam’s […]...
