PC Pancake Blender Bottle…For The Win

My son loves pancakes for breakfast. Most days I heat up frozen silver dollar pancakes and call it a day, but on the weekends I’ll make them from scratch. I’m always looking for ways to reduce the number of dishes I dirty when making a meal, so this bottle blender is one of my new…

Mom Tip… ‘Submarine’ Straws

I seem to always need a straw for my son when one isn’t available- or it’s too long and results in spilling at meals. I now carry this handy little box in my diaper bag or purse. It’s filled with bendy, submarine straws that I cut about 1 inch off the bottom. That ensures I…

What’s for Dinner? Week of 9/17/17

This week was a mix of some of our favorites as well as some new meals. I’d say this week was a hit all the way around- almost all 5s across the board! Two of these are even slow cooker meals for extra ease. Sunday- Pan Seared Chicken and Broccolini in Creamy Mustard Sauce Monday-…

Mom Tip… Road Tape

This is one of my all time favorite mom hacks- Road Tape. We used this tape to decorate for my son’s construction themed birthday party. The kids loved playing with it on our coffee table, so I knew I wanted to find a way to use it again. It’s essentially painters tape, so it doesn’t get…

What’s for Dinner? Week of 8/27/17

We had a few nights this week where our schedules just didn’t allow us to have dinner at home, so this weeks menu only has a couple of recipes, but they are new ones! As always, I’ll update the post throughout the week to let you know what we thought. Wednesday– NEW RECIPE– Creamy One-Pan Chicken…

Small Batch Jam…For The Win

I love picking berries in the summer with my boys. It is one of my favorite memories I have from my own childhood and I hope they will remember it as well. My sister, mother and I would spend a day picking strawberries and raspberries and then our mom would spend days making them into…

Same Ingredients, Three Meals…For The Win

This week I didn’t do a full meal plan. Our weekend was a bit hectic and we only had time for a few meals together as a family, so I went to one of the easiest multi-night meals I know. Chicken saladwrapizza.  It’s honestly just the same ingredients for three nights prepared in a few…

Fingerpaint Soap…For The Win

If sometimes you just need an extra 10 minutes while your toddler is contained…I introduce you to Fingerpaint Soap. I love using these as an activity before bath time really starts. I squirt a variety of colors into the tub and give my son a brush (I use an old make-up brush) and let him…
