 This post is sponsored by BabbleBoxx.com on behalf of Bertolli®. If my family could have pasta every day for dinner they would. We love it so much that we make it several times a week but plain ol’ pasta can get boring over time. That is why I like to change it up a bit every now and then. One day playing around in the kitchen with some different ingredients, this Pasta Primavera recipe became a hit in our household. Made with the freshest ingredients of baby spinach, mushrooms, diced tomatoes, and onions, mixed with penne pasta. Add a jar of Bertolli ®…

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #EarnWithBoxTops #CollectiveBias Collecting Box Tops for Education is important in our family. It helps with my kids schools, teaches my kids to do some good deeds and it’s on our favorite products we are already buying in the grocery store. I like to save a big batch of them which doesn’t take long and have my kids drop them off at school. We’ve helped them win pizza parties, prizes and more through the school just by simply cutting out Box Tops on participating…

This is a sponsored post in partnership with Moink. All opinions are my own. It’s a new year and time to kick into health mode. This time I’m including my family and not just me. I’ve decided to go low carb after adding up what we normally eat in a day to be shocked at how many carbs we consumed. Steak is always on the dinner menu at least once a week but wanted to change it up a bit to something we can all enjoy. After trying different ways to make steak, I came up with low carb steak…

One of my favorite candies this time of year is the Andes mint chocolate. The rich taste with a hint of mint hits the spot. Now add the Andes mint chocolates into a toffee bar with some peppermint and you got Andes Toffee Bars. If you thought Andes mint chocolates were addictive, I’m giving you fair warning that these are as well. If you like more of a chocolate taste rather than the traditional sweet and salty toffee bars made with nuts than this recipe is a great one to make. I like to bring some to the holiday party…

This post has been compensated by Mirum and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. We all want to be a super hero to our kids but they may not see us that way. With JUSTICE LEAGUE hitting theaters on November 17th they may be rooting for their favorite superheroes such as Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman and more. We can’t under estimate the power we supply to our entire family but we can provide the snacks and be the hero of the day with this recipe for Tidal Flavor Wave inspired by the movie.

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of The J.M. Smucker Company. The opinions and text are all mine. I will be the first to admit that I’m a caffeine addict. I’m constantly drinking it all day long from soda to coffee as it gets me through my long days at work and then coming home to be a mom. I don’t always have the time to make coffee at home so that is why I rely on Dunkin’ Donuts®  Original Cold Brew Coffee year round. You get that ultra-smooth, full-bodied coffee overnight and it is ready to enjoy…
