Growing up, I don’t remember too many meals together at the dinner table, other than at holidays and on the weekends sometimes.  With a family of my own, I made the decision that I wanted our family to eat together every night (if possible).  It’s not only about enjoying good family together, but also about […]...

I love the story, The Night Before Christmas, and read it to our family every Christmas Eve before we go to bed.  After all, that’s what my parents did when I was younger.  So when I heard that Verizon FiOS created an Instagram Storybook called “Twas the Night Before Stanley,” I had to check it out!

As parents, Frank and I have had lots of “Life in the Backseat” experiences with our kids – both with our children when they were little and now as they are growing up!

Black Box Wines –  You’ve heard of the others, but now it’s time to try the best.  Once upon a time in my early drinking years, you could find me drinking Boones Farm Wines & Franzia (the other box wine) not for the taste, but because my wallet could afford them.  Thank goodness those days are long gone. I am […]...

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.

I grew up with the Campbell’s brand in my home and now as a mother, so does my own family.  I know that Campbell’s is a brand we enjoy and trust and what’s even better is that it’s a brand that makes products that are heart-healthy.  Heart disease is something that runs in my family, […]...
