Summer Desserts should be FROZEN!

Frozen Dessert

I had the best of intentions... I was going to make these spactacular looking Frozen Chocolate Souffles from the Kraft Canada website...  they were going to be epic, and my kids were going to bow down to the amazing desserts that this momma makes.  But I wandered.  I didn't follow the directions, instead throwing a twist here and a replacement there... See, I didnt have any chocolate pudding, so I figured ice cream would work instead.  I mean... … [Read more...]

We're half way through the summer, and the BBQ's are in full swing. Not a weekend goes by that the grill isn't flipped on and the burgers and hot dogs get a nice char. It's summer.

Cedar Plank Salmon on the BBQ – #KidApprovedMeals

Walmart Family

I love to eat fresh fish! I love it so much that almost every time our family dines out for dinner, a meal served with fish is what I order. Why only when we order out you ask? Because my family doesn’t like fish. There, I said it. Unless I’m cooking dinner for one, fish doesn’t meet my grill. Insert pouting mama face here. Adding fish to our menu would be such a treat for me! Not only is it a very healthy and lean protein, but it … [Read more...]

5 Things You Need to Know to Protect Your Devices Against Online Threats


This post is part of the and the Norton #BoldlyGo sponsored program. I received compensation as a thank you for my participation. This post reflects my personal opinion about the information provided by the sponsors. It happened shortly after my eldest son learned he had access to many computer games on our home computer. Online gaming is where it’s at, especially when you’re 10. It didn’t take long for our family computer to … [Read more...]

Farmers… Part of Your Every Day… and Mine.

For the last few months, mornings have started early for me.  My alarm goes off around ten after four...AM. That is not an easy time of day to rise and shine, let me tell you... it takes a lot of prep work to be able to get up and go.  Clothes and shoes set out the night before, as to not disturb my sleeping family, as I get ready for my work day.  Even the coffee gets ready to go the night before...and set on a timer. When I make my way down … [Read more...]

A Healthy Daddy…

CoreyBen BW Watermarked a happy daddy. He may not always be politically correct, and he'll utter a cuss word once or twice.  But my two boys have the very best dad that they could ever have.  And they know it.  Those silly moments when daddy intentionally drops a mild swear word, just to see them giggle.  I think he has decided that that giggle is worth the glare he's going to get from me if I happen to hear it. His sense of humor is his best quality, and I … [Read more...]

Strawberries for Canada Day!

Canada Day Cake 1b

I love Canada day.  Everyone dresses up in their reds and whites, and we head down to the big park where the town puts on a party for all ages.  Free BBQ,  bouncy castle, giant water slide on the hill... (powered by the fire truck)! It's an event we all look forward to!  My kids get to run around and act silly, while we sit in the shade, enjoy our lunch and listen to the live music. Canada Day rocks. At home, that evening, we have our own … [Read more...]

Celebrating Summer with Kinder Surprise (& Minions!)

Minions 3pk

We're down to the last few days of school.  Though much of the country is celebrating today as the last day, my kids have to go to school Monday and Tuesday to enjoy a day on the field full of fun and games. Followed by a day of goodbyes and final marks.  I must admit, as much as I have been counting down the days until I can sleep in again, I'm not quite sure I'm ready to have my kids under my feet for two full months... Strategy will come … [Read more...]

Hush Little Baby Don’t You Cry… #BetterForBaby

And I had all the feels. This morning in my inbox was a link to a video.  Now, I knew before I clicked the link that a video from Pampers was certainly going to make me cry.  I knew that I would likely sit here afterwords, thinking about my own babies, the memories I have of them when they were little, and wish I could once again hold on to them.  I think that's why I cry when I watched it.  My time with babies is over...and I miss it … [Read more...]
