Sponsored Posts, Giveaways, and Reviews

This post is sponsored by Musselman’s applesauce. I was challenged by Musselman’s applesauce to create a healthy back-to-school snack and immediately knew that I wanted to make cookies.  Because – let’s be real – kids and adults alike will eat pretty much anything if it comes in cookie form.   These moist cookies are tasty [...]

This post is sponsored by NatureBox. Henry starts “preschool” in two weeks!  Since I stay at home, this is Henry’s first foray into regular outside childcare.  At first, I was super nervous about how he’d adjust, so I’ve been talking up the concept BIG TIME.  The things that have helped the most include driving by [...]

This post is sponsored by Millstone Coffee Co. Wake-up!  It’s time for a very coffee giveaway! For the past few weeks, I have been enjoying the occasional cup of Millstone Coffee Co.  I had never had the pleasure of drinking this brand before, but seriously – I’m smitten.  I’ve made cups for the Husband and [...]

This post is sponsored by French’s Yellow Mustard. I’m an equal condiment opportunist – I love them all!  But of the big three – ketchup, mayo, and mustard – the yellow stuff is my current favorite for its versatility.  While I’m always happy to smear mayo on my burgers or dip my potatoes in ketchup, [...]

This post is sponsored by Silk Almond Blends. Is it hot where you are? It's July. I live in North Carolina. That means that it's basically scorching every single day. But I'm not complaining because I love the heat and loathe the winter. Bring on the sweat!   Every single day, we fill up the [...]

The average American consumes 39 pounds of sugar in sugared drinks – like soda – each year?  Sugar drinks are the biggest source of added sugar in Americans’ diets? Sugar drinks increases your risk for obesity, diabetes [...]

This post is sponsored by Crest Pro Health. I’ve been reading more and more about how research is linking plaque, bacteria, and inflammation in your mouth to a host of long-term diseases, like heart attack, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, and dementia.  I read a Sarah Silverman interview the other day, and she (randomly) said that death [...]

This post is sponsored by Udi's. How are you guys doing? I'm in recovery mode from this weekend! My body isn't sore anymore, but man - am I tired. I would love to curl up on the couch and watch back-to-back episodes of Parenthood all day. But alas - that must wait until the kiddo's [...]

This post is sponsored by Good Food Made Simple. I just survived a week of eating totally ‘clean’ for breakfast.  I say “survived” because it was not as easy as I thought it would be – it was definitely an interesting experiment that forced me to get outside my traditional breakfast box.  I did a [...]

This post is sponsored by Blue Diamond Almonds.  There’s a fun almond giveaway at the end! A few weeks ago, I threw Kristien a rockin’ 30th birthday.  It was originally intended to be a big outdoor BBQ, but weather woes forced the party inside. We ended up taking all the furniture out of the living [...]
