McCafe Moments (from McDonald’s)

McCafeCoffee

 

Ah, coffee. My love for it started when I was just a kid (my dad used to give me sips of his, and now I do this with Evan – Arianna has no time for it). But my real love of a a morning coffee about 3 weeks after I got pregnant with Arianna. Just plain, with a little bit of sweetener (the yellow pack). It went away for a few years, then when I started my weight loss journey I picked the habit back up again (go figure). keep reading

Coffee-Mate Girl Scouts Creamer

Disclaimer: I was sent samples of Coffee-Mate Girl Scouts Creamer in exchange for an honest review. All opinions, however, are 100% my own.

We’ve hit my favorite time of year, the days just before fall when mornings are crisp and cool. What better to have on a day like this than some coffee? How about coffee with Coffee-Mate Girl Scouts Creamer in Thin Mints and Caramel & Coconut? Trust me when I say they make your day better. keep reading

Eggs in a Bag

() As I hinted in the first camping memory post, Missy wowed us with Eggs in a Bag. I know, it sounds really gross and I am sure you are skeptical that this would result in runny eggs and food poisoning, something you don’t want while camping, right? Greg will eat anything, so he supported Missy’s efforts; Tom and I were willing to try, but had back up plans just in case. Oh, thank goodness we trusted her. keep reading

Healthy Eating: Over the Edge?

A few months ago, I determined I would be over the edge of this whole healthy eating thing when I got a scale. Well, that’s done. And then it changed to “when I start eating funky stuff”. Give me a few spare points here, who is to determine what “funky stuff” is? Regardless, today while eating breakfast, I think I finally tipped over the edge. keep reading

Heart Healthy Huevos Ranchero Biscuits

As I was thinking about a third recipe for the Red Pack contest I am participating in this week, I was leaning toward Huevos Rancheros, since it is on my 30 things by 30 list. I googled and searched Red Gold to see if I could find anything, and I came across this biscuit version. An absolute favorite breakfast item of ours is “Lucky Biscuits”, a discovery from Burgh Baby, so I am sure I can come up with a great adaption that we’ll have this weekend. If you beat me to the punch, please tell me how good it is! keep reading

Honey Bunches of Oats #Giveaway #HBOats #Coupon

Don’t mind me, I am just up early bringing you another review and giveaway! Oh, and enjoying my bowl of Honey Bunches of Oats – Honey Roasted!

I was given a sample box of Honey Bunches of Oats – Honey Roasted to try out. Unlike Greg, I never really ate the cereal much growing up (he actually would have his mom buy the “Just Bunches”), so I can’t say I know how to compare this improved version with more granola bunches, but I can tell you the amount of granola bunches versus flakes was a great ratio. It made me understand why he was all “get me the Just Bunches”! keep reading
