Easy Snack Ideas for Kids
September 11, 2021

School is back in person and we are so excited to be changing things up again. We have been together at home for months and it’s been great spending time as a family.  With school going from virtual to in person, we are thinking of new ways to change up snacking. School snacks are different from at home snacks. When at school, my boys love snacks and small packages of things.  They like their food and their snacks separated and portioned. Finding snacks for kids can be challenging sometimes.  Then of course, I have a picky eater.  Lucky me! One of my sons doesn’t like bread at all. If I ask him what he wants for lunch for school he says, “nothing.” It’s hard to work with that. …

How to Make Wheat Free, Gluten Free Snacks for Kids
July 17, 2019

This post was sponsored by Blue Diamond® as part of an Influencer Activation and all opinions expressed in my post are my own My kids love making sandwiches out of crackers.  There's something about the ritual of making it.  They get excited about what they are going to put inside the sandwich and it becomes a step by step game for them. They also love the crunch! Sometimes, they get slight skin reactions from snacks that have wheat and gluten in them.  You don't know what you're buying when you get the premade processed stuff. But I found a way to get them to make these fun snack sandwiches by themselves using fresh ingredients that are wheat and gluten free. You shouldn't have to settle for taste …

How to make an Awesome Gluten Free Snack for Kids
July 11, 2019

My kids love cereal for breakfast.  This summer though, we have been trying to come up with new things to make for the kids to eat now that school is out.  Every morning I'm met with the same questions, "what's for breakfast? Followed by "what are we doing today?" It's all about the food, snacks, and activities. So, since Cheerios came out with yummy NEW Blueberry Cheerios, I thought I'd make a fun, creative snack bar for them to put in the lunch boxes when they go to camp. The Blueberry Cheerios are made with real blueberry puree and other natural flavors.  Whether they have them for breakfast with milk or find these fun bars in their lunchbox, you can't go wrong with Cheerios, especially their …

Keeping Game Day Simple with RITZ Crisp & Thins
February 2, 2019

The big game is coming up and everyone is scrambling for game day recipes. Not me though. I like to keep things simple. And I love a good deal.  Getting into the spirit does not have to mean over doing the food. Entertaining doesn't have to be stressful either. So, this year I got some simple ingredients from the Walmart and some oven-baked RITZ Crisp & Thins and made guacamole, a game day staple. With just a few ingredients like avocados, lemon, tomatoes, cilantro, onion and seasoning, your set for an awesome game day recipe. The best part is that you don't have to measure anything. Just add everything until it tastes the way you want and season to taste. It won't be complete though without RITZ …

How to Snack When on Keto
October 17, 2018

Many of you have been asking me about the Keto diet.  The truth is that I am still learning about it.  It's the one diet (when I say diet, I mean a way of life) that takes a lot of research.  But once you figure most of it out, it's cake (carb and sugar free cake, lol). So, one of my downfalls with unhealthy eating and gaining weight is snacking.  As a busy mom of two boys, sometimes it's just easier to snack on their snacks.  Sometimes I snack on their dinner as I'm making it. When I first tried Keto, I couldn't figure out on how to snack.  I almost gave up. There is only so much beef jerky and pork rinds one can handle, hehe.  …
