Easy Dinner Ideas On The Grill

The official end of summer is near and the unofficial end of summer has arrived. While I’m sad to see our summertime fun and memories fade, I’m excited that we’ll still have some warm days upon us to continue using our grill instead of heating up the house inside.

Over this past summer I’ve come to realize that you can grill just about anything. And that includes pizza! Not only is it the perfect way to get a crisp, delicious crust, it evenly cooks all of the toppings so no one is left with a doughy bite.

But pizza isn’t the only thing you can put on the grill… I’ve also started grilling up some desserts and even salad if you can believe it. These easy dinner ideas on the grill are not only simple to make but quick to cook up! This whole meal took less than 15 minutes from start to finish.  [Read more...]

Summer Memories Photo Book Made Easy

I don’t know about you but we had a BUSY summer! From playdates at the beach, to trips to the zoo, to fun vacations to visit family, we were able to pack quite a lot into those short summer months that seemed to fly by.

Throughout the summer I was pretty bad about getting out the “big camera” and more likely than not I was carrying around my point and shoot or my cell phone. And sometimes if it’s not a photo I’ve edited, I usually don’t end up getting prints or take the photos off my phone.

Well that’s all changed now that I’ve realized how easy it is to take photos from my point and shoot or cell phone and create awesome photo books, gifts, and prints right at the Photo Center at CVS. [Read more...]

The Ultimate BLT Sandwich plus Tips on Cooking Bacon

This article featuring the ultimate BLT sandwich is brought to you by Viva.

Ultimate BLT Sandwich with Avocado Ranch Spread

There’s one word and one alone that can describe why my family can’t completely kick paper towels. And that word is BACON! While I can clean my counters with cloth rags, use cloth napkins at the dinner table, and dry my hands off with a kitchen towel, nothing compares to using a paper towel to drain and cool off.

My family is pretty obsessed with bacon and we always seem to be cooking more up. With the kids starting to demand bacon on a more regular basis I needed to figure out how to streamline the process but still end up with delicious, slightly crispy bacon for the family.

And, of course, create a deliciously simply BLT sandwich while I cooked up my last batch of bacon. Complete with an avocado ranch spread that really hit the spot.  [Read more...]

Healthy Back to School Lunch Tips

Packing lunches can start to feel monotonous really quickly if you don’t have a lot of variety. This year I’ve been challenged to really thinking outside of the lunch box when it comes to packing healthy foods for my kids.

And since it’s the first official year I’ll be packing my son’s lunch for Kindergarten (and not just a day out like last year) I’m kind of excited to find new ideas to keep things fresh and exciting for him. Since we also have to send along a snack, I’ve included some snacks in here as well.

And, of course, I’ll be sending along some cute lunch box notes for my son to read as well when he’s munching on his goodies.

If your brain is really stuck on what to pack this year then check out some of these tips: [Read more...]

Back to School Organization with Sight Word Ideas - organize your homework area and help your child recognize sight words

With my son going into Kindergarten in two weeks exactly, I wanted to spruce up the homework station I created for him to be more kid-friendly. Since he’ll be learning a few sight words this year I thought I’d help him out by labeling all of the organizational bins I have in his homework station with the name of what’s in the bin.

I didn’t want anything too boring like a printed label though. I wanted bright signs that would grab my son’s attention so I headed over to Staples to grab some fine point and extra fine point Sharpie markers.

If you know me you know I can’t resist a good sale on school and office supplies. So when I was our Sunday paper with my husband and ran across the Staples ad I got excited when I saw that Sharpie markers were on sale! All Sharpie Fine and Ultra Fine assortment packs and Sharpie Neon Marker packs are currently on sale at Staples through August 24th while supplies last.
