Fall is such a wonderful time for fun, football, and food! My family really loves watching football games, and I love the football food. I like to shake things up with traditional foods and keep everyone guessing. Last week, I was craving turkey and cranberries, but did not really have time to cook a whole turkey and serve it up like Thanksgiving day. I used Prime Fresh Delicatessen Oven Roasted Turkey Breast by Smithfield lunch meat and made this absolutely delicious Turkey Cranberry Quesadilla with spicy Cranberry Salsa on the side!View Post
Three out of five members of our family are huge peanut butter lovers. The second grader could eat a peanut butter and jelly sandwich every day with no problem! I have always been comparing taste, price, and ingredients of the different peanut butters on the shelf at the store, but I didn’t know just how easy it was to make homemade peanut butter! Let me show you just how easy it was to make fresh, delicious homemade honey peanut butter!View Post
I have been lucky enough to be a work-at-home mom for about 7+ years now. I always knew I wanted to be able to stay at home with my children, but was not sure how we were going to pull that off. When I became a blogger in 2011, our oldest was 2 and our second son was 4 months old. This blog has progressed and luckily, this is working well for our family. Without going any further, being a parent is hard enough in itself. Stay-at-home parents are some of the hardest working parents out there. Add in a JOB that you have to do while you are parenting children…it gets pretty tough!

There are no better flavors on this earth than the flavors of fall. Whether or not you agree, you cannot deny that the flavors and smells of fall are unique and invoke a certain feeling. The cooler weather, school, leaves falling, it’s all SO wonderful! The flavors and smells of cinnamon, apples, pumpkin…amazing! My favorite fall recipes, other than these delicious apple danishes are Instant Pot Cinnamon Apples and Apple Cranberry Crumble.View Post
How to Keep Your Hungry Kids Fed (Without Getting in the Car) is sponsored by BabbleBoxx.com.
Today begins the fourth week that our oldest two kids have been back to school. It always amazes me how quickly time flies by when you are busy. We started soccer season this past weekend (or tried to, they were all cancelled by heavy thunderstorms and flooded fields!) Every day of our week has an activity and keeping it all together is a bit of a challenge, but I have learned to make calendars and checklists so everything goes smoothly. There is one part of our lives that could always use some more careful attention, and that is how to keep those hungry kids fed while saving time and NOT relying on the drive-thru.View Post

Our oldest is almost 10, and I am SO thankful that he has always loved to read. For the past few years, it has been a challenge to find age appropriate books that he ENJOYS reading. The books he has always loved reading are books from National Geographic Kids. The “Weird But True” series is an easy read with beautiful pictures, and seeing his eyes light up when he sees these different books is such a joy to me. He can get lost for hours reading National Geographic Kids books, and has loved National Geographic Kids Everything Soccer this summer!
While we are still baking in the summer heat, Fall is not far away! The scent of pumpkin spice is already beginning to fill the air and it is the BEST TIME OF THE YEAR!!!
The four-year-old and I made this adorable pumpkin craft for fun, but it turned out pretty cute so we used it alongside two printables from fellow bloggers and made a cute Fall display for our entry way.
Aren’t pumpkins the best thing ever? I love their color and everything about them!

Summer Nights “Season For Love” post brought to you by Hallmark Channel. All opinions are mine.
My kids are back in school, but those summer trips and vacation are still fresh on my mind! We travelled North, West, and South, but I think our favorite trip was going to Arkansas for the first time. We were on a mission trip, but we still had time to explore a beautiful local creek and campsite. It was gorgeous! What was your favorite summer trip?
Hallmark Channel is reliving all of those sweet summer nights with their new Summer Nights movie lineup! Have you tuned in yet? There are five NEW original romantic movies and Season 3 of Chesapeake Shores.
This Saturday, August 25th, at 9 pm/8c, Hallmark Channel is premiering the fabulous new movie Season For Love,starring Autumn Reeser and Marc Blucas. Here’s the synopsis:
It’s been years since high school sweethearts Tyler and Corey saw each other and now they’re back in Red Rock, Texas, competing in the Annual BBQ Cook-off. She just lost her job as a sous chef in San Francisco and he’s flying in from New York to be the festival’s celebrity chef. Definitely coming from different places in their lives, they still feel the same about being back home and cooking great BBQ. But even with three bestselling cookbooks, his own product line, three restaurants and his own TV cooking show in the works, Corey is reluctant to get back to all the big city hoopla. And even though Tyler has just been offered the position of head chef at a new Bay Area restaurant, she’s not ready to leave her hometown. It could just be the heat of the cooking competition, but sparks have definitely been flying between these two. In fact, right up until the final moment of the cook-off, no one knows who will claim victory…and it might just be the people of this All-American town who will come out the winners.

Blueberry Yogurt Muffins and Other Easy Breakfasts with Yogurt brought to you by Clover Sonoma. All opinions are mine.
Next week, the boys will start back to school and the sleeping in will have to end. Ahhhh summer, how I will miss you! The boys will both eat lunch at noon, I think, which means breakfast will be of utmost importance! It is so important to have a filling breakfast to get them to lunch and keep their brains on their schoolwork and not their growling tummies. That is why I have had to come up with quick easy breakfasts made with yogurt and easy make ahead breakfasts like these Blueberry Yogurt Muffins.View Post
