Spring has sprung and the weather has started to warm up. And we get to celebrate our favorite mothers on Mother’s Day. There are many wonderful mother figures in my life and I am so grateful for the time I get to spend with them. But this year, one mom in particular is blowing my mind (and, quite frankly, making me feel a little inadequate). This Mother’s Day, my sister-in-law will be celebrating her first as a mom of 4 kids. Her family recently fostered two toddler boys and it instantly doubled her family. She has handled this (and ALL the stress that comes with it) with such grace and love. She is truly a role model and deserves a little extra praise. But I also want to encourage her to find time for herself. Read through for a delicious adult-friendly Buttered Cheerios™ recipe with Truffle Oil that she can easily make during their regular snack time!

I live in an area where the parks are abundant but your house and yard are tiny. I often want to invite people over but worry that my house will be too cramped (plus I’ll have to clean it…). Now that the weather is warming up, we really need to start taking advantage of these gorgeous public spaces. While you won’t have your full party arsenal available to you in a park, it is still really easy to put together great looking parties to go.
YOU GUYS! This is the BEST CARAMEL CORN RECIPE EVER! I don’t mean to yell. I just want to be clear. You haven’t lived until you’ve had this caramel corn. It is simple to make and is a real show stopper. I have given this as teacher’s gifts, eaten it in place of birthday cake and have been accused of hoarding it for myself. If that is wrong, I don’t want to be right.
I have this thing with lavender. It’s a big part of my life right now. It helps me sleep, it’s keeps me sane during the busy day, it’s my favorite gift to give and I also think it adds an amazing burst of flavor to all kinds of foods. I created this Roasted Almond Recipe with Lavender for Minted’s blog, Julep. Hop on over to their site for the full recipe. I think I’m going to go snack on these right now…these are a perfect quick snack to make when you have friends or family coming over. Everyone loves a good snack!
I’m partnering with Aveeno® to share how to promote healthy skin, from the inside out, as part of a sponsored post with Socialstars. #AveenoTurns out you get more health benefits from a smoothie than from toaster pastries! I’ve spent my life trying to ignore that fact, but the truth is, eating natural foods, really does help promote a healthier body. The right diet, paired with the right skin care products, can get you beautiful, healthy skin. This blackberry smoothie recipe is delicious and will help your skin, from the inside out.
On first appearance, this chicken fried rice recipe may seem like any other chicken fried rice recipe. But I’m partnering with Foster Farms to show you how I was able to take my kids from wishing they were allergic to chicken to requesting this meal! All opinions, full stomachs and happy children are mine.
Like most families, chicken is a staple in our diet. And while I love chicken dishes, my kids do not. I try a new type or flavor of chicken each week, searching for something my kids will tolerate. But with this, I hit the jackpot! Not only do they tolerate this dish, they actually LOVE it! It’s pretty much a dream come true.
