Our daughter's best friend graduated high school over the weekend, and since she is literally like another daughter to us, I wanted to help her mom out with the open house party she had planned.

I grew up in a home full of coffee drinkers and I started drinking coffee when I was 15. But now I live in a home where I'm the only coffee drinker and brewing a whole pot of coffee (or even half a pot) for little ole me, just doesn't make sense. Not because I wouldn't drink half a pot (or a whole one at that), but because I like my coffee brewed fresh.
And this is my solution...
In my efforts to clean out my pantry and freezers before we move, I'm getting very creative with the contents inside them!
I'm not a fan of drinking milk straight up or having it with my cereal either, but add it to a smoothie and I'll toss it back. Armed with a box of Strawberry Delight Mini Wheats and some frozen strawberries I decided to try making a smoothie and see how it turned out.
Ever wonder how some chef's stay so skinny? For some of them I'm pretty sure it's because they know that if they eat food that is loaded with nutrients and protein they'll stay full and keep their energy up for hours at a time.
Take this Chocolate Shake that you can make for breakfast that Jennifer Iserloh created (adapted from Secrets of a Skinny Chef - 2010) filled with power foods!
I have a smile on my face every time I walk into my dining room and this is why.
There are days I'm so thankful that I no longer work a 9 to 5 job, with just two fifteen minute coffee breaks. I get to have coffee break whenever I want to by blogging….and believe me, it's a whole lot more than just two!
I have a 'Coffee Bar' set up in my dining room with coffee machines, a proliferation of hot and cold beverage flavors, sugars, creamers and syrups. And the other day I added to them a couple of Torani Syrups for some more fun to stir into my caffeine choices.
Well summer is over, but that doesn’t mean we have to leave the tastes of summer behind right? I love the flavors of paradise – tropical fruits like mangoes and pineapples and some coconut too!
This might not be low fat, but it sure is delicious. If you close your eyes and sip this Paradise Milkshake, you might imagine you’re lounging beside the pool.
You may have noticed that here on Three Different Directions we like to feature easy, family friendly recipes. Just recently I had the opportunity to head to Walmart to do some shopping for Del Monte Fruit Cups and come up with some healthy lunch or snack options with them.
I brought the whole family along shopping and you can see our entire shopping trip in the Google+ Album, by clicking the picture below.
Here’s an easy recipe that your kids could make on their own in the kitchen, with just some supervision. It tastes a bit like an orange creamsicle.
So last Friday amid an extremely busy day I made a stop at Sam’s Club to check out the International Delight Mocha Iced Coffee. This past weekend if you were at your Sam’s Club you may have had demo overload! So many things to try and taste in the store. I love the Sam’s tag line of ‘sample.shop.save’ , because it’s true I’m more apt to buy something new if I get a chance to try it before I buy it.
