Dr. Fischer Mineral Products Review & Giveaway

When I was asked to review and do a giveaway for Dr. Fischer's Mineral products with the benefits of Dead Sea minerals for Mother's Day, I immediately thought of my mom.  Of course because it's Mother's Day, and she's my mom, and because she loves to be treated to a day at the spa, but really it's because my mom and dad are frequent travelers to Israel and every time they come home she raves about the Dead Sea mud and her 'beauty treatment' .

How to Create an Easy Cinco de Mayo Bento Lunch for Kids

Cinco de Mayo themed bento lunch for kids

I have a few blogging friends that are SO creative, they make these incredibly cute and healthy Bento Box lunches for their children to take to school (or even to eat at home!).  I was lucky if I remembered to take the ice pack out of the freezer or pack a spoon for the yogurt when I was making lunches for Amber...

But today I'm beaming from ear to ear because I think I nailed a cute Cinco de Mayo Bento Box idea for you guys to run with, make all your own and one up me on (because admittedly I just don't have the supplies to make it as awesome as it could be like those seasoned Bento moms).  How fun would it be to pack something like this in their lunches on May 5th?

Secret Clinical Strength & Giveaway

Secret Clinical helps protect against the three causes of sweat:

· Heat
· Activity
· Stress Sweat – especially stress sweat!

Stress sweat - yep, that's occurring around here on a daily basis.  I've never really had a problem with over sweating before, but I think the combination of all the things I need to do and get organized over the next couple of months, and the introduction to Texas summers have thrown my body for a loop.

Why does stress sweat smell worse?

I'm a "Family Talk About Drinking" Ambassador

The Anheuser-Busch Family Talk About Drinking program, helps families discuss the important issues surrounding the topic of underage drinking.  As the parent of a daughter who will be turning 18 in just 11 days and headed off to live in a dorm come fall, I'm proud to announce that I'm a Mom Blog Ambassador for the Family Talk About Drinking program. 

As the mom of an "almost" grown up, I've recognized that through the years there are different stages of parenting and we can tie those stages right from the beginning together to open the way for discussion to the responsible use of alcohol.

Shells & Cheese with Chicken

Shells & Cheese with ChickenA few days ago, I was paging through a magazine and found an ad with a recipe for an Italian-Style Mac & Cheese with Chicken - since my husband is not a fan of sausage I figured I would substitute chicken breast in it instead, and I had everything else in my pantry and fridge to make it. (Well, almost.)

The creaminess of the cheese sauce was to be made from evaporated milk.  I assembled all my items, got ready to make the recipe and opened the can of evaporated milk..and it was weird.   Ewww it had expired (time to do a pantry clean out I guess!).

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

Chocolate Peanut Butter CookiesHere is a chocolaty twist on a traditional favorite peanut butter cookie.  The cookies will come out of the oven flatter than you would expect, but the insides stay chewy and the outer edges are crispy - the perfect texture combination to the sweet & salty of the chocolate and peanut butter!

Giveaway - Alone Yet Not Alone

Alone Yet Not Alone by Tracy Leininger Craven is inspired by a true story, which her grandmother Leininger first told her when she was young after tracing their family’s genealogy.

In 1755, Allegheny warriors ambush sisters Barbara and Regina Leininger's, 12 and 9, house, killing their father and older brother, kidnapping the young girls and taking them to their village.  There they were forced to adapt to the warriors’ way of living—which included dyeing their faces, wearing warrior clothes and adopting the Allegheny ways of worship.
