Mom Hazard #672: Cold Coffee (International Delight Iced Coffee Saves the Day!)

I can’t remember the last time I had a hot cup of coffee. Oh sure, I pour myself a hot cup every morning, but as the mother of a two-year-old (one who acts like she has a java addiction of her own) and a busy blogger, by the time I take my second sip, the […]

A Holiday Party with Flatout Thin Crust Artisan Pizza Flatbreads

When you think of the holidays, what food comes to mind? Cookies? Wine? Mom’s Christmas ham? Wine? All four are acceptable answers, but how ‘bout pizza? Probably not, but I think about pizza at least three times a day so, for me, pizza pairs well with just about any holiday. I recently suggested a Christmas-themed […]

Mrs. Smith’s Signature Deep Dish Pies (And a $50 Williams-Sonoma Giveaway)

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Mrs. Smith’s. All opinions are 100% mine. Have you ever made a homemade apple pie? I have. Like skinny dipping, Brazilian waxes, and the Twilight movies, it’s one of things you have to try at least once, just to see what all the hubbub […]

My Adventures In Potty Training: Poopies, Pee-Pees, And Pull-Ups

When our daughter was born, I was one of those parents who had the ambitious goal of potty training her before her second birthday. And then reality set in. Her second birthday passed, and although she was willing to sit patiently on her little pink potty, she was no closer to being diaper-free. I try […]

It’s a Dairy Miracle! Discovering the Joys of Shelf Safe Milk with Milk Unleashed

Our daughter effortlessly weaned herself from breast feeding literally overnight when she was about 11 months old. She hasn’t lost her love of milk, though, guzzling about a gallon of the stuff each week since making the switch to moo juice about 18 months ago. But as any mother of a milk-loving toddler will tell […]

Solving My Mommy Lunch Woes with Lean Cuisine and Homemade Fortune Cookies

As a stay-at-home/work-at-home mom, I know all too well about the mid-day adventure known as “lunch.” It’s a crazy period of time, usually filled with diaper changes, spilled juice, barking dogs, fussy toddlers, more spilled juice, and about six other unexpected distractions. Somewhere in all that madness, I manage to prepare a balanced meal for […]

Lights, Camera, Aliens! Our Pre-Turkey Day Men In Black 3 Movie Night

Last month, you might remember me talking about our absence at the movie theater in the two years since our daughter was born. We’ve missed a lot of movies on the big screen in that time, which means we’re pretty much a DVD-only family now. In last month’s post, I talked about buying the pre-order […]

Creating Brighter Holiday Smiles with Colgate Holiday Packs

As a kid, one of my favorite things about Christmas was the stocking. It hung there empty for so many days and nights before magically filling with a seemingly endless supply of small gifts and treats. As a mother, that excitement is there still there, as I find myself putting a lot of thought into […]

Two Meals, One Key Ingredient: My Review of Tyson Crispier Breaded Chicken Filets

As the mother of a two-year-old, I can tell you – it’s not easy to plan meals that appeal to both adults and toddlers. Actually, that’s not true. My husband and daughter would be more than happy to have macaroni and cheese and hot dogs every other night. I, on the other hand, would prefer […]

Saluting My Veteran with a Delicious Pairing from Sam’s Club and Starbucks

My husband, the veteran. He’d describe himself as many things – a husband, a father, a rabid Mets fan – but he’s also a former member of the United States Navy, and it’s something I’m extremely proud of. He doesn’t talk much about his six years on a nuclear submarine, but I know he’s proud […]
