Toddler Meals with Re-Play + Giveaway!

To go along with my Baby Food with Blendtec post last week, I also wanted to share with you how we feed our toddler! I used to post weekly updates on Austin when he was a baby, and I am sad that I don’t post about him enough on here as I really want to…

A Nugget-vention with KFC Popcorn Nuggets

This post was sponsored by KFC through their partnership with POPSUGAR Select. While I was compensated to write a post about KFC Popcorn Nuggets, all opinions are my own. My 3 year old son is a picky eater. We’re at this stage now where we basically have to spoon feed him dinner sometime because he takes…

Pudding Made Right – Kozy Shack Giveaway!

This post is sponsored by Kozy Shack®, but all opinions expressed are my own. Life with my 2.5 year old lately has been quite busy.  With the weather being nice outside all the time, we’re constantly out and about and on the go, which means I always need to be prepared with quick snacks for…

Making pizza with little ones

Last week, Austin’s favorite older cousin, Evan, came to visit us all the way for California! He stayed a week at our house with my parent’s in town watching both kids and they just had so much fun playing with each other. For dinner one evening, we decided to let the kids be the chefs…

Harvest Lasagna – the dish that lasted us all week

Hands down, one of my favorite foods ever is Lasagna. It’s pretty easy to make (just layer a bunch of stuff and bake!), all of the different cheeses melt in your mouth, and using Red Gold diced tomatoes makes it a breeze. The friends over at Red Gold were so kind to send me a little…

Tequila-Lime Fruit Salad

A few weeks ago I attended a Labor Day potluck with some close friends! And I just wanted to share with you all what I made. I knew I wanted to make something with alcohol in it so I decided on a fruit salad. Let me just tell you, this “salad” is tasty, EASY to…

Wendy’s Chicken Flatbread $6K Video Contest

You know I am a sucker for contests/competitions/giveaways/sweepstakes, etc. And I figure some of you might be as well. Wendy’s has reintroduced their new Smoky Honey Mustard and Asiago Ranch Chicken Flatbread Sandwiches again for a limited time and you MUST go try one if you haven’t. It’s a little bit off the beaten path…

Beef Recipes For The Little One

I just can’t believe how fast my little guy is growing up these days. He’s already passed 20 months in age, is repeating everything anyone says like a parrot, runs around like crazy and can’t sit still, and is just the cutest little thing around (with a few tantrums here or there). It’s definitely getting…

Spinach Beet Salad

One of my new favorite salads of this Summer is a Spinach Beet Salad.  I don’t have exact measurements but I basically mixed spinach, roasted beets chopped in quarters, chopped (hard) goat cheese, toasted almonds and an oil based or vinaigrette dressing and DONE!  It took me many years to start loving beets, maybe it…

Bacon Potato Bites!

I made these little bites for a July 4th party and yes, it’s taken me that long to blog about them. I don’t generally make things with bacon, but anything with bacon usually turns out to be a hit at parties, so I figured why not! Bacon Potato Bites from My Last Bite… Ingredients 4…

Sweet Made Sweeter with Wendy’s Frosty Waffle Cone!

It’s been a whirlwind of a few days in terms of travel, but for those of you who follow me on Instagram, you know that we just took a little family trip to Omaha, NE last week.  It’s kind of a funny story, but I basically won a contest from VisitOmaha.com where they turned a…
