This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group™ and Nestle, but all my opinions are my own. #PMedia #BreakfastEssentials Mornings are hard.  Getting out of the door, on time, with the kids dressed and fed, homework done and signed, and the dog walked is a challenge requiring super-mommy powers.

Honey Buttercream Frosted Cupcakes

Any honey lovers out there? My son is a honey lover.  In fact, he does the grossest thing with honey.  I’m not even sure I should admit this, because it’s a tad on the yucky side. He drizzles honey on hot-dogs, like most kids put ketchup on hot dogs. I know! It weirds me out, but someone taught him to do this very young and

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of the Facts Up Front program. My kids and I are in love with Nutella.  We spread it on sandwiches, and bagels, and bananas.  We top it with strawberries and granola.  We eat it right out of the jar.

This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group™ and Jimmy Dean, but all my opinions are my own. #PMedia #onthego I am not a morning person.  Before I had children, people understood that about me.  My coworkers would steer clear until I had a cup of coffee and worked in silence for at least one hour.  Then

I’m becoming the Soup Master, not to be confused with the Soup Nazi, but every bit as prestigious. As a child, I hated soup, all except my grandma’s string-bean soup.  Other than that, in my ten year-old opinion, soup was for sick people and old people.  Through the years, something happened.  Somewhere along the line, I fell in love with soup.  I suspect it has
