Take the Olympic Challenge

Did you ever dream of being an Olympian? Well, now is your chance to become one. But before I get to that, let me tell you about how I became obsessed with the Olympics. I’m a total Olympics fanatic – both Summer and Winter! So naturally I am loving watching all of the Olympics right […]

Top 13 Posts of 2013

The last day of the year, and what a year it has been. There are so many fun things on the horizon for 2014, and a new venture I can’t wait to tell you all about, though it will have to wait a little longer (sorry to be such a tease!). In the meantime, it […]

Pumpkin Apple Breakfast Cookies

I don’t know about you, but our mornings are often chaotic trying to get one or two little ones off to school (depending upon the day) and my husband out the door to work. Luckily I don’t commute very far to work most days! But having time for more than a quick breakfast on the […]

Recipe Redux: Slow Cooker Mediterranean Salmon

I really wasn’t sure I was going to take part in this month’s Recipe Redux as I knew I would be busy at the annual food and nutrition convention of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. However, when I saw the theme, The No-Casserole Crock Pot, I knew I couldn’t miss it. Those of you […]

Recipe Redux – Cinnamon Raisin Bread

Have Snacks. Will Travel. This month’s Recipe Redux theme is all about packing healthy snacks for the road. This couldn’t have come at a better time as I was in the airport when I saw the theme with some of my favorite snacks already packed in my bag, as you see in the picture above. […]

Menu Plan Monday – July 15

How do you handle meals for your family if you are out of town? I’m actually gone 4 days this week to a conference, which is probably the longest I’ve ever been away since we had children. Even for short trips though, I always try to leave the refrigerator and freezer well-stocked with staples, leftovers […]

Say Yes to 4 of Children’s Favorites Foods

My appearance this morning on CBS Better Mornings Atlanta was sponsored by Applegate Farms.   When you ask children what their favorite foods are, the top three are generally hot dogs, pizza and chicken nuggets. But these foods aren’t generally on the top of parent’s lists for what to feed their children. In a recent […]

Menu Plan Monday – June 3

I was actually on vacation last week and now that we are back, I’m trying to get back on track! Yes, I still had a menu plan last week – we had to eat something while we were away, but I didn’t want to be cooking the whole week either. Expect a post soon about vacation […]
