Did someone say breakfast muffins? When we say muffins, we automatically think about a pastry with blueberries or chocolate chips. At my house, the word muffin can also mean a hearty, protein packed meal that can be held in one hand and devoured on the go. I grew up in a home where a hot

I admit it. I’m a brand name junkie. I don’t want cheap cereal or off-brand coffee. With the exception of a few store brand products from Publix, Target and Wal-Mart, I tend to pay for a trusted brand. That probably won’t change but I will start purchasing some of my fresh produce at ALDI. Why?
Nestled behind a few businesses and a condo building, The Dolphin View Restaurant in New Smyrna Beach, Florida is an almost hidden gem. Almost… Driving up to the big blue building is not impressive at all. But, as soon as you walk around what looks like a storage facility you get it. I mean, you
Bonefish Grill is one of my favorite places to eat. It is a place we go for “special” date nights. Every time we go, the hubs and I always get at least one appetizer of Bang Bang Shrimp—“crispy shrimp, tossed in a creamy, spicy sauce”. In Montgomery, we lived rather close to the restaurant.

We are way past back to school posts as most of us are gearing up for the holidays. Can you believe 2014 is almost over? I can because the boys have misplaced most of their lunch storage containers. For some strange reason it starts disappearing this time of the year. Last year, I posted about
Our lives are made up of stories. Some stories we long to relive – happy and fun stories that brighten our days and provide memories that make us laugh. Some stories we try to forget – tragedies and sorrows that strike when we are weakest and challenge us in our faith. But all the stories
Last Saturday night a girlfriend had to cancel our girl’s night out because her babysitter bailed. Fortunately, my husband’s football team had a bye week so I didn’t have babysitter problems. Being that this would be one of the few times I would get out of the house alone over the next few months—I’m a
I’m kind of late writing this post. But, here goes. I see a fair amount of banter on Facebook and in mom’s groups about children and food. Fortunately, I grew up in a home where my mother paid attention to our likes and dislikes when it came down to meals. She didn’t go out of
In 2012, over six million children under the age of five died (WHO, 2013); more than 45% of those children died of causes linked to malnutrition. Malnourished children are more susceptible to severe diseases. If you do the math, close to 3.5 million children die annually as a result of Severe Acute Malnutrition (SAM)—more than
The process of moving sucks. In addition to physically packing all of your tangible belongings, packing requires you to absorb all of the memories you made in a particular place.
