Pumpkin Yogurt Dip and Wholesome Snacking with Yoplait Greek Whips #SnackandSmile

This is a sponsored post for Yoplait for the #SnackandSmile campaign.  With back-to-school in full swing, with our busy schedules back in action and our lazy, carefree summer in the rearview, I need to grab a snack (or meal) and have it be easy. Now that fall is here, though, I crave all things autumn – pumpkin, […]

Most Heavenly, Easiest Raspberry Pie Recipe EVER!

I am a Goldrich Eggs ambassador. I’m a busy mom, and crazy happens (hence the name of this site). I walk to get the kids at school everyday, and I bring my wallet, place it in the stroller, so that I can show I.D. in case one of the kids has a substitute. On this […]

Glazed Apple Fritter Waffle Doughnuts

(I am a compensated Great Day Farms and Goodrich Farms ambassador.) I’m not sure what gets me so excited over a perfectly prepared apple fritter, but I know it’s one of my most favoritest flavor combinations on the planet. Apples, cinnamon, and that sweet finger-licking glaze. Ohh my gosh. While I love the apple fritter […]

Grain-Free Gluten-Free Pumpkin Pie Cupcakes #FitMaple

The following post is sponsored by FitFluential LLC. I eat oatmeal daily, sometimes paired with over-easy eggs (which I also eat daily). It might seem boring to eat the same thing every day, but when you’re a busy work-at-home-mom to eleventy-billion kids as I am, routine is key to staying on task and getting everything done. […]

GORGEOUS Apple Rose Tarts for Snacks and School Lunches #HorizonB2S

The following post is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Horizon Organic. All thoughts, opinions, and baby helpers are mine. I’m a huge advocate for getting kids to help in the kitchen, even at an early age. Have the baby sit in the bouncy while you cook, and give the baby a […]

Gorgeous Very Berry Smoothie Recipe

Yesterday, I opened my freezer door and found a brand new, never-opened bag of mixed frozen fruit containing strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries. It was taunting me, enticing me to use it for something, but what would I make? Having just purchased some Himalayan sea salt and a replacement bottle of apple cider vinegar, I […]

Dessert for Dinner

Once upon a time, a mom wanted to do something special for her kids, to make up for their missed vacation. She opened up her web browser, and clicked on a few of her favorite bookmarked recipes, and solidly mixed, sifted, stirred, baked and created magic for almost four hours. The result? Dessert for dinner […]

Glazed Strawberry Doughnuts

I’ve been on quite the strawberry kick lately. Between snacking on them with my kids, enjoying them in my smoothies, and making them in cakes, I am excited to have them on-hand constantly. A week or so ago, I pinned this recipe on Pinterest. Source: maryquitecontrarybakes.com via Lisa on Pinterest   The day we had […]

Vegan Banana Berry Smoothie – Addicted to Smoothie Recipes #mamavation

I thought that I’d share with you, as my first and introductory post to Mamavation and being the newest Mamavation Mentor/Cheerleader, my current addiction love of smoothies. I’m one of those people who, if I love something, I balls-to-the-wall love something. Like, can’t eat, can’t sleep, can’t stop talking about it, making my family and […]

Breakfast for Dinner

Every so often, you’ve got to do it. You know? Sometimes, it’s just gotta happen, when breakfast for dinner is warranted. When I was a kid, it was because we wanted a little celebration, or maybe we forgot to take out dinner in time and were stuck with what to make, and eggs, bacon and […]

The Blueberry Muffin Accident

I believe my new nickname in the kitchen is going to be “Screw Up McGee”, because it seems all I do anymore is mess up. A lot. Did I say a lot? *ahem* So my latest goof involves blueberry muffins and a new technique I had planned to be g-e-n-i-u-s, only it was sticky, too […]
