Movie night Pajama Party with Hotel Transylvania 2 and sticky, salty and sweet M&M’S® Chocolate Candies S’mores Popcorn Balls.
It is finally winter here! I mean, I know it has technically been winter for a couple of months now but we’ve been having abnormally warm temps up here in Maryland (and I’ve loved every minute of it!). Suddenly last week Winter realized it has been slacking and the cold windy days have begun. That means no more spending the day at the park on the weekends and more curling up on the couch with the kids and some popcorn for a movie night. [Read more…]

It sure doesn’t take long for that vacation feeling to wear off, does it? If you follow us on Instagram you might have seen some of the yummy pictures I was taking while on vacation in Maine. It was the first time I had been there and it was absolutely beautiful.
This was my view for the week. Pretty nice, right? Our vacations are usually jam packed with things to do, people to see, places to go. This one was all about relaxing. I was able to turn my brain off for a whole week and just sit outside enjoying the cool air and the sounds of the lake. It was awesome.
Chicken Quesadillas are a simple snack of chicken and cheese melted inside of a crispy flour tortilla.
Today I’ve got a recipe for you that I make for the kids all the time. My kids call them quesadillas (sounds like armadillos), and they are one of their favorite snacks. To me it is totally a comfort food. My son came home from school yesterday, second week and he’s already a pro!, and asked me to make some quesadillas for him and we both sat at the kitchen table together looking over his homework for the night, snacking on cheesy chicken quesadillas hot out of the pan.

You’ve got to make a special back to school snack for the kiddos. These Chocolate Peanut Butter Clusters are sweet, crispy bites that your kids will love.
Well, we survived the first week of school. Oh my gosh, why didn’t anyone tell me there was going to be so much paperwork? Other than that it went really well. Putting my son on the bus that first day was a little tearful (more for mommy than him), but he has already made new friends and we’ve started to figure out a routine. I get him on the bus in the morning then take his sister to daycare. In the afternoons I pick him up and we come home and have an afterschool snack together and work on homework (I still can’t believe we had homework the first week!). I’m really enjoying that hour with him before we head to pick his little sister up.
I mentioned the other day that I had joined the PTA. I want my son to have the best of everything and I think that starts with a good education. I know schools always need more money to fund programs and buy supplies. Now that I have a kid in school I have been keeping my eye out for ways that I can help. I’ve been noticing all of the Box Tops for Education™ labels on products I buy so I looked into the program. Box Tops is one of America’s largest school earnings loyalty programs. Each label is worth $0.10 for your child’s school and the school can use Box Tops cash to buy whatever they need, new technology, field trips, art supplies, etc.. Box Tops come on so many different products and I buy a lot of them so it is a pretty easy program to work with. I know $0.10 doesn’t sound like a lot but it adds up fast and when I was in Walmart the other day I saw that they have a bunch of products that offer bonus Box Tops. 5 Box Tops per package, that’s $0.50 per item! I snagged a bunch of stuff that I needed and left with $5 worth of box tops from one shopping trip!
One of the items that ended up in my cart was a two pack of Reese’s® Peanut Butter Puffs® cereal. One is for the kids’ breakfast but the other I used to make these simple treats as a special afterschool snack for my son. I’ll admit I ate a couple myself. They are so good! They were also really easy to make. I just melted chocolate and peanut butter together and poured it over the cereal. Then I dropped them in clumps on a baking sheet and put them in the fridge until the chocolate hardened. My son and I shared a few after his first day of school while he told me all about his big day.
Now it is your turn. The bonus Box Tops are only available at Walmart. Go out and pick some up and help a local school.

Crunchy and sweet, Granola and Yogurt Parfaits are a great snack when you don’t have a lot of time.
We’ve had a busy summer and snacking has gotten a little out of control. The kids have been cooped up in the house while it has been too hot to spend much time outside, and they have started grabbing a snack while they watch t.v., or play games. I’m guilty of it too. We have so much going on that sometimes I just want something quick and easy, and more often than not that means a less than ideal snack choices. So, last week on my weekly visit to Walmart I made a decision to cut out the junk and fill the house with better snacking options. [Read more…]
This Mango Green Smoothie is a simple snack that will get your kids to eat their veggies.
It’s almost the end of July! How is it possible that the summer is flying by so quickly when some days I could swear the clock has stopped (usually those days when the kids won’t nap and they start climbing the walls, LOL)? With the kids home more in the summer there has been a lot of snacking going on and I’ve been getting creative! [Read more…]

Sometimes I need a guilt-free dessert and these Low Carb Strawberry Almond popsicles are the answer!
Kat and I have mentioned before that we try to eat low carb most of the time. My husband is the one who got us started on our low carb journey. Shortly after I had my second child he started eliminating carbs from his diet and after seeing what a difference it was making for him I jumped on board (Kat was soon to follow). Reducing the amount of carbs in our diet has been a huge change, not just in how we eat but how we feel. Even after almost 2 years I’m still amazed at how much better and more energetic I feel when I’m keep my carbs under control. [Read more…]

Do you all have a busy summer planned? I do! I’ve got a trip to the beach coming up and my son is playing sports, not to mention day trips to the aquarium and a family reunion. Whew! We are going to be on the go, but having fun, all summer long. Keeping the kids fed while we are out and about is a priority, nothing brings the day’s festivities to a halt like a cranky, hungry, toddler. One of the easy snacks in my arsenal are these s’mores pretzel bites and Jif To Go Dippers. Chocolate, marshmallow, and pretzel dipped in creamy peanut butter? Yes please! [Read more…]
Gluten-free and delicious this Avocado Hummus is perfect for parties or just an afternoon snack.
Hummus is one of my favorite “dips”. I didn’t discover it until a few years ago but now it is one of my go-to snacks. Of course once I fell in love with hummus I had to learn how to make it myself. It was so easy! Now that I know what I’m doing I like to take a little creative license with the standard hummus recipe and try out different combinations. This avocado hummus is one of my favorites so far!
Hummus isn’t only delicious it is also gluten-free, and since I have several friends who have to steer clear of gluten that makes it great for parties. Last weekend I had some friends over for a cook-out and I made a big batch of my avocado hummus. All you need is a can of chickpeas (garbanzo beans), a ripe avocado, fresh cilantro, garlic, lime juice, olive oil, and salt. Throw the beans, avocado, cilantro, and garlic in a blender or food processor and then add lime juice and olive oil while you puree it. You are aiming for a smooth dip that is thick enough to spread. It should not be runny. Once you get it to the right consistency add salt to taste and it is ready to eat.
You can serve hummus with raw veggies but at my cookout the real star of the day was the Breton Gluten-Free Crackers that I served with the hummus. They were so good! We tried all 4 flavors but my personal favorites were the Breton White Bean with Salt & Pepper, and Breton Black Bean with Onion and Garlic. Beans are the main ingredients for both of those and each serving contains two grams of fiber and two grams of protein. They are also low in saturated fat, contain no artificial colors or flavors, no cholesterol and are trans-fat free. All Breton crackers are certified gluten free by the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness Gluten Free Certification Program but I’ll tell you you’ll find it hard to believe they’re gluten-free!
If you’re looking for something a little different from your standard dip to make for one of your parties this summer, or if you just need something new to snack on you’ve gotta try this recipe. You won’t be sorry!
