Summer is over! Did you have a chance to take a vacation?
We have been enjoying the Summer to it’s fullest! From camping to theme parks to relaxing pool side. I have been fighting my urge for high calorie drinks to quench my thirst.
I do love my coffee. But, during the hot days of summer, drinking a hot beverage is just not appealing to me, at all. When the weather is warm outside I tend to gravitate toward cold drinks. Community Coffee® offers smooth, delicious coffee options of both hot and cold varieties that are available in convenient single-serve K-Cups or in bags of ground coffee.
Since 1919, Community Coffee has been dedicated to selecting, roasting and perfecting great-tasting blends for coffee lovers everywhere. We follow our beans along their journey from farm to cup so you can enjoy a truly exceptional coffee each and every day. —– Community Coffee® website
I have tried several flavor varieties of Community Coffee® and have never been disappointed in any of them. Right now, in high summer, I am particularly enjoying getting my coffee fix with their Mocha Vanilla Iced Coffee K-Cups…. [read more]
For me, this summer came and went with the blink of an eye. By next week, my son will be a kindergartener and beginning a brand new school. This is a time of huge transition for my family and I want to stay at the top of my game.
Ah, summertime. Clothing gets lighter, days get longer, and who can resist a good meal made on the grill? Summer barbecues are notorious for greasy burgers, fattening hot dogs and carb-laden potato chips. While there is nothing wrong with any of these things in moderation, eating these types of foods every time you cook out is likely to have you start feeling lethargic and maybe even packing on the pounds. Luckily, there are plenty of ways to have a health summer barbecue.
For years, when I was in grade school, my family lived in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. I loved having all the seafood and the taste of the Gulf at our fingertips. Po Boys, crab, shrimp, and crab boils are all good eats to me.
The thing that I miss the most not being near the Gulf Coast is the desserts. I miss the real Key Lime Pie with Grand Marnier whipped cream that is made fresh in so many local places there. Another dessert that I love to indulge in when I am in Florida is Banana pudding with Nilla Wafers. I am not sure what it is that makes the banana pudding so good when I am visiting the Gulf Coast area, but it is a favorite of the whole family…. [read more]
I love cooking new and interesting recipes for my family. It is so easy to get into a rut when it comes to preparing dinners, especially since my kids have after-school activities and my extended family is experiencing some pretty tough emotional times lately. There are certain meals that are go-to crowd pleasers in my house — tacos, my homemade lasagna, parmesan crusted chicken and Papa Murphy’s take-and-bake pizza to name a few. But, sometimes, we all crave a little variety at the dinner table, am I right?!… [read more]
I love drinking smoothies, slushies, and mixed drinks. However, most of them are incredibly high in empty calories and massive amounts of sugar. Unhealthy treats are fine every once in a while, but not ideal for everyday drinking. When you prepare a drink at home, you have more control over exactly what goes into your drink and the calorie content. You can prepare a delicious cocktail with fresh ingredients and lower calories.
How many parents have to struggle with little picky eaters that do not want to eat or only want to eat certain foods?
This is something that I think every parent has to deal with. In my household, my baby brother can’t stand tomatoes, but guess what he has never had a problem with…tomato sauce and ketchup.
With my fiancée being the Fire Chief in our local town, I am always struggling to know what to buy for dinner! A lot of times I don’t even know if he will make it home for dinner after I spent time planning our meals out for the week. With HelloFresh, I was able to have just enough fresh meals in the fridge to last a week and they were all very nutritional and delicious.
