Gingersnap Energy Bar Recipe to Fuel Your Workout

This no bake energy bar recipe has been sponsored by Stonyfield Organic yogurt.  As a Stonyfield ambassador I receive product coupons to facilitate my recipes.  All opinions expressed here are my own. Several years ago, my husband took up running.  Since then, I cannot even tell you how many miles he has run...around a track, through the neighborhood, over park trails, and through Disney during one of many marathons.  As any avid runner can tell you, when you are training it is incredibly important to make sure you keep your body well fed.  My husband is extremely thin and during marathon training, the weight drops off at an alarming rate.  Yes, I kindof hate him for that!  He gets really sick of protein drinks so I am always looking for creative ways to pack protein and carbohydrates … [Read more...]

Natural Weed Control and a New Way to Look at Weeds!

Natural Weed Control and a New Way to Look at Weeds!

I have been spending quite a bit of time out in the yard for the last few weeks now that spring is finally here. The grass is growing like gangbusters, the garden plants are in their beds and there are tons of projects that need tending to.  One thing that I absolutely HATE doing is dealing with weeds.  Of course, since I refuse to spray them all with chemicals I am left with natural weed control methods, which usually involve pulling them out by hand and swearing a lot.  It is not usually a successful method of weed control, unfortunately!  But, I do what I can to keep the weeds out of the actual food and try to overlook it when they grow places that I don't think they belong.  After all, what exactly IS a weed?  What makes one pretty yellow flower a weed while that pink one that I … [Read more...]

Ever have one of those days where the teenagers are belligerent, the dog escapes from the yard, and your dishwasher decides to start leaking all over your kitchen floor? I seem to have those days an awful lot!  At the end of such a day I look forward to a cup of tea, usually accompanied by something in the chocolate family.  A mug of hot chamomile tea can be the perfect way to wind down after a stressful day.  I also enjoy an uplifting green tea in the morning or peppermint tea when my stomach is feeling a bit … [Read more...]

Mother's Day is fast approaching and I'm sure we all have a special someone who needs remembering!  Whether you choose to send a funny Mother's Day card or a sentimental Mother's Day greeting, Hallmark has the perfect Mother's Day messages for that special woman in your life.  Maybe it is your mom, a grandmother, or just a woman who has had a positive impact in the lives of you or your children.  I would love it if you would join me at the Hallmark #MothersDayCard Twitter Party to chat about what sort of cards make your Mother's Day special!
