Kid Friendly Pizza Arancini


Today we are getting in the kitchen and making Arancini.  Pizza Arancini, to be more precise, and we will making it … with our kids. Don’t worry, they’ll love it.  Trust me, I know.  It has the word PIZZA right in it. .I started blogging when Seven was about 9 months old. The truth is, […]

Back To School: After School Treats

Didn’t the kids JUST get out of school?  I swear, in ways it seems like it…and yet in ways, I can’t believe the summer I’ve had. So many wonderful thins packed in to just under 3 months: a trip across country for a few weeks, a trip to the Florida Keys, 2 Panic at the […]

Arm & Hammer…Did You Know? (and a Giveaway!)

Baking Soda

Okay, for the past few months I have been working closely with Arm & Hammer, reviewing a few of their products, sampling a few goodies, and of course, using their famous baking soda in my baked goods. Sure, I also have a box sitting in my fridge, absorbing odors.  Everyone knows you should so this.  […]

After School Snack with Go-GURT


I remember clearly, my days in elementary school. Every day my cousin and I would ride the bus to my grandmothers house, where we would race each other to the living room, each of us vying for the best seat in the house…the couch.  Well, I always wanted the couch – he always wanted her […]

Spooky Delicious…Spiderweb Pancakes


Halloween. It’s upon us, folks.  Before you know it, the kiddos will be dressed as ghosts and goblins (what’s a goblin even LOOK like?), zombies, witches, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.  A few days later, we’ll set the clocks back and then it will snow and we’ll all go buy Christmas presents and champagne for […]

Decorating Halloween Cupcakes…on Daytime Blue Ridge


I’ve stepped way outside of my comfort zone lately, kids. Like, way, way outside. Me?  I like to hang out in my kitchen, barefoot, communicating via Facebook, text, and Twitter.  I am perfectly content to do so – I don’t really like leaving the house. So what am I doing? I’ve started appearing on Daytime […]

Product Review: Culturelle: Let’s Avoid Sick Days…

Okay, sit down. Breathe. I am not the World’s Best Mom. There…I said it. I try to be good, though. I try. I make sure Seven eats. That he’s clean. That his clothes aren’t terribly un-matchy. He can read and write and is great with numbers. He (finally) ties his own shoes and wipes his […]

Product Review: The Kid’s Tasters Box from Goodies Co.

I don’t know about you, but I am a huge mail junkie.  I can’t help it…I get excited every time there is a “real” piece of mail (you know, handwritten envelope from some far away land), a magazine (oh Lord, giddy), and if it’s a box?  Well, hold me back.  As a blogger, I fortunately […]

Life Aboard a Fun Ship Cruise…the Carnival Dream


A few weeks ago, I wrote a post from the pool deck of the Carnival Dream.  You may remember this post, or, you may be new here and didn’t know I am a spoiled brat.  You see, I was hosted by Carnival to experience the Dream with my family, and what an experience it was. […]
