How To Eat Healthy On A Busy Schedule

How To Eat Healthy On A Busy Schedule

Life is busy, whether your a mother or not.  Snacks are a big business and when you have kids, their snacks become your snacks.  Before you know it your living off of animal crackers, lol. Our busy lives force us to make bad decisions sometimes.  I have been working on this ever since I had children.  My struggle for balance is a daily challenge.  Eating sensibly is one of those challenges. We all want to find a better way to eat.  But does it have to be complicated to be healthy?  Sometimes it seems like a lot of work.  I weigh my food for portion control and count my macros.  I use an app to keep track of all my meals.  They have to be cooked fresh.  …

Realtree Coffee MAX - Get Your Double Caffeine On!

Realtree Coffee MAX - Get Your Double Caffeine On!

Some days I really need a boost.  Most days I have three cups of coffee.  I try to cut down to two but always end up going back to three cups of coffee.  It's not just about the boost either, it's about taste and the comfort I get from sitting down and relaxing with my mug.  It might only be for five minutes, but it's something I look forward to three times a day. Because being a mom is tiring.  Being a forty-six-year-old mom to two boys under five is just exhausting.  It's worth every second, but it's truly exhausting. Sometimes I don't have time for my second as I'm rushing through the day and then the window of time for me to have my last cup …

How to Make a Nonalcoholic Chocolate Coconut Tiramisu

  It's no secret that I love my sweets!  I also love anything creamy and chocolatey.  I've always wanted to make Tiramisu but I assumed it was too hard to make. Not so! I did some research and testing, lol, and I came up with a fabulous recipe for Tiramisu with a twist.  I added Java Factory Single Cup Coffee in Choconut, a delicious chocolate, coconut flavored coffee. It is one of the easiest recipes I've ever made!  Unbelievable!  And I've been missing out all these years...haha Check out my recipe [amd-yrecipe-recipe:10] The best part of this recipe is the flavored coffee used to soak the ladyfingers.  Make sure you have a Keurig and only use one single serve cup of Java Factory Single Cup Coffee in Choconut.  To make it stronger, …

The 25th Anniversary of the Florida Renaissance Festival
March 14, 2017

The 25th Anniversary of the Florida Renaissance Festival

I attended my first Renaissance Festival when I was nineteen-years-old.  It's something you don't forget.  My friends and I would go and buy crystals, throw pixie dust and flirt with the long-haired boys. Back then, I would have never have dreamt that I would be bringing my children to the very same festival.  Now they are celebrating their The 25th Anniversary! I remember experiencing it for the first time, just as they did this past weekend, and it is an experience to remember for sure!  The 16th Century costumes and clothing, fairy dust, turkey legs, and fabulous jewelry are still there today.   Days later, my kids are still talking about it, from the flying marshmallows when we came in to the high wire pirate show, and the funnel …

How to Make a Salted Caramel Pecan Crunch Ice Coffee

I drink coffee every day.  Usually, a simple coffee with creamer will do the trick.  But sometimes I like a really extravagant coffee.  When I'm in the mood for ice coffee, I usually go all out. I love salted caramel and whipped cream.  Throw in some nuts and crunch and I've got a delicious ice coffee. It's either all or nothing.  I don't do boring. So, I came up with a recipe for delicious home made ice coffee. The most important ingredient is Java Factory Da Bomb Single Serve Extra Bold Dark Roast Coffee.  It's double caffeinated!  Whoohoo!  This is perfect for an ice coffee because it's stronger and even if the ice melts it, it still has a kick! [amd-yrecipe-recipe:9] To grind the pecans and parlor perfect topping, use …

My Interview With The Amazing Steven Schussler

My Interview With The Amazing Steven Schussler

A couple of months back I visited the The Boathouse Restaurant in Disney Springs. I had an amazing experience, and in the process of writing an article about my experience there I had the opportunity to read about the history of the Boathouse and its visionary creator: Steven Schussler. Some of you might not know this but Steven Schussler is the man behind restaurants such as the Rainforest Café and T-Rex and the National Best-selling Author of “It’s A Jungle In There, Inspiring Lessons, Hard-won Insights and Other Acts of Entrepreneurial Daring.” So when I was offered an opportunity to interview Mr. Schussler, I jumped on it. I didn’t really know what to expect. I don’t do interviews very often, and when I do it’s not …

How to Pay Less For LEGO®Sets

With two LEGO® loving boys, I have finally accepted that fact that our lives will be consumed with every thing LEGO®.  We recently went to the VIP grand opening of Ninjago World at LEGOLAND® Florida Resort and their LEGO® obsession was catapulted to a new dimension. Help!  I think of all the money that LEGO® will be costing us in the future.  Don't get me wrong, LEGOS are awesome.  But they keep coming out with more stuff!  This means that we have to keep buying it. I've always wondered if there would ever be a solution to this dilemma.  Believe it or not, there is and it's called Bricksmarts. My kids were thrilled to receive an up-cycled LEGO®set by Bricksmarts. Bricksmarts up-cycles incomplete, unused, unwanted LEGO® sets, and gives them new life by …

Chick-fl-A Upcycle Challenge

Chick-fl-A Upcycle Challenge

Recently, I tried the Chick-fil-A Chicken Tortilla Soup.  I'm pretty picky when it comes to tortilla soup.  I like a lot of chicken in my soup and holy smokes Chick-fil-A wasn't kidding around!  This soup is delicious and hearty.  I ordered the small  wondering if I would still be hungry but it was really satisfying. Just in case I was mistaken, I went back and ordered another.  You never know, right?  I could have gotten a soup from a "good batch?" Nope, the soup was jam packed with chicken and so so yummy. Because I'm lucky enough to be a part of  the 2016-2017 Chick-fil-A Mom Panel, we were given an upcycle challenge to reuse the soup containers. Well, I love a good challenge, so I thought about it.   I …
