I'm still coming to terms with the fact that October is almost over - seriously how did November creep up on us so fast?! I am glad for the cooler weather though, the HOT Texas summer was a bit more intensive than I had anticipated :) And with the cooler weather that means that holiday baking is already commencing in my kitchen, and I had the opportunity to make a few things (and share them!) with Werther's Original Baking Caramels.

It's been a long time since we've done any kind of Halloween Celebrations around our home, but I'm always up for creating - and so when I had the opportunity to come up with some 'Spooky' Halloween Recipes using 7Up, Hawaiian Punch and M&M's, I was up for the challenge.
My love affair with coffee didn't quite start out that way. Actually I started drinking coffee to make a point rather than because I enjoyed the taste. I was 15 and working at a summer job and one of my duties was to make the coffee for the office staff. By golly, if I was going to make the stuff, I was going to drink the stuff. And that's how my obsession started.
It's that time of the year. We aren't ready for summer to end, but we're heading into autumn. This is a great smoothie recipe that I got from a Family Fun magazine that combines the sweetness of summer peaches with the warm flavors of fall. The best of both!
Mangoes were on sale at the store last week for 48¢, and I had just gotten a package delivered with some Lung Ching Dragonwell green tea from The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf thanks to a Klout perk. So when I was flipping through my August issue of Woman's Day and saw Joy Bauer's Energy Smoothie recipe, featuring green tea and mango, well I knew I had to make it.
When someone looks inside our grocery cart and sees how many items are in there from the refrigerated dairy case, I'm certain they think I'm shopping for a family of six. I just really like the different kinds of food products I can find in it to use in my daily meal planning. Don't just be thinking milk, cheese and eggs, remember there is a lot more to be had in the dairy aisle at the store. You'll find juice, spreads and easy snack options like cookie dough there too!
I can’t tell you how much simpler products from the dairy aisle make my life. We can consume a lot of them just as their packaged, and others are indispensable to have around for recipes.
Still haven't planned a dessert for Dad today? Don't panic if you didn't, because here's a great recipe from eMeals for you to make.
Baby Steps to a More Sustainable Lifestyle by Learning from Bigelow Tea's SustainabiliTea Program #AmericasTea
Spring, I think it missed us here in South Dakota. We went straight from winter to summer. From 0 degrees to 90 degrees just like that. And isn't it great that you can adjust your beverage drinking to accommodate those literally overnight weather fluctuations?! Hot herbal teas to soothe the sore throats and aches and pains of winter, and an iced herbal tea to energize or relax in the warmth of a summer day. I'm so glad that I have an assortment of boxes of Bigelow Tea to drink whatever the season might be.
