Apple Muffins with Apple Cider Cream Cheese Glaze

Apple Muffins with Apple Cider Cream Cheese Glaze

I know I am the minority on this one, but pumpkin spice everything is not my favorite thing about fall. Although I do like pumpkin bread and chai tea, my fall obsession is apples. My daughters and I love apples so much we go through about 15 pounds of them every week! We try to make it to the local orchard at least once every fall. The kids love it! We have so much fun riding the hay ride, picking apples, drinking hot apple cider, and of course, eating apple cider doughnuts. We always end up bringing a couple of dozen home with us. I’ve tried to replicate those doughnuts many times without success. The recipes have been okay; I just haven’t found that perfect one yet. On my last attempt, the doughnuts were …

Last Minute Classroom Treat – Mummy Drink Pouches

Last Minute Classroom Treat – Mummy Drink Pouches

If you are anything like me, you wait until the VERY last minute to prepare for school events. I always end up volunteering to bring something easy like store bought cookies or pretzels and chips. This year I signed up to send in flavored water pouches. My daughter wasn’t impressed, so I decided to take a few minutes to jazz up the pouches… These Mummy Drink Pouches were successful in wowing my daughter, and the other kids in her class. They are super easy to make–all you need is some drink pouches, white crepe paper, googly eyes, and a hot glue gun (I also used a small black piece of black construction paper to glue on the eyes, but it’s not necessary). PS Be careful with the glue gun! I am a klutz and …

5 Strategies to Stop Chronic Supermom Syndrome (CSS)

Five Strategies to Stop Chronic Supermom Syndrome

Chronic Supermom Syndrome (CSS) tricks you into believing you can do it all. But it’s just not possible. You can fake it for a while, but eventually something will fall through the cracks—typically, your health and family. The human body can only withstand so much lack of sleep and increased stress before it starts to melt down. After months and months of my Supermom schedule my normally low blood pressure was borderline high, my memory became spotty and I found it difficult to quiet my mind enough to sleep. Or worse, I would fall asleep ridiculously early and wake up in the middle of the night, my heart pounding “Did I remember to…?!?” CSS was also affecting my family. I was repeatedly losing my temper, forgetting client tasks, snapping at …

Easy & Delicious Crock Pot Chuck Roast

Easy and Delicious Crock-Pot Chuck Roast – Cook once, Five Days of Meals

One of my favorite go-to meals is pot roast. It’s one of the few things that everyone in my family will eat without complaint. It’s super simple to cook and is very hard to ruin with this Easy and Delicious Crock-Pot Chuck Roast recipe! I’m all about the set it and forget it cooking style! That is why I love my Crock-Pot (6-Quart Countdown Slow Cooker with Stove top-Safe Cooking Pot) so much. I use my slow cooker several times a week, even in the summer. It is a lifesaver! This particular Crock-Pot has a double-duty DuraCeramic cooking pot. I no longer need to use a separate pan to brown, sear, or saute ingredients before putting them into the slow cooker! The DuraCeramic cooking pot is safe to use on the stovetop, brown the meat and …

Quick and Easy Pumpkin Goody Bags

Quick and Easy Pumpkin Goody Bags

I don’t know about you, but I’m not exactly the craftiest person. I get frustrated when there are too many steps to follow or if it takes too long to complete. I REALLY wanted to make this wreath, but I knew I didn’t have the patience to finish the project. Gluing all those little putka pods would have taken FOREVER!!! That is why I was so excited when I found these cute pumpkin goody bags. They make adorable goody bags for a Halloween party, a fun classroom treat, or to give out to Trick-or-Treaters. You could even use them as a place card or table decoration for Thanksgiving. I love that they are super easy to make. I knocked out 20 of them while watching the latest Blacklist on demand. The best …

All opinions are mine alone. #EatLightEatRight #CollectiveBias I can eat soup anytime… it doesn’t matter what the weather is like outside, a piping hot bowl of Progresso® soup always hits the spot for me. It is a staple in my pantry; I stock up on all the amazing Progresso® Light varieties especially when they are on sale at Walmart. It’s a quick and easy meal that’s filling but low in calories. Perfect on those busy days when I don’t have a lot of time to make lunch. One day I had a major craving for my tortilla soup but I didn’t have all the ingredients on hand. I looked around my pantry to see what I could make and a light bulb went off. I …
