On Sundays sometimes I’ll make a calzone for dinner, not only because my family loves it, but it could feed plenty of people, and really stretches your dollar.
It turns out that no matter how tough the economy is people are still willing to pamper their pets. A recent poll conducted by The Associated Press shows that pet owners plan to spend an average of $46 on their furry friends this year. That’s up $5 from last year! Toys and treats are topping […]
Let’s face it, as much as we all LOVE candy. There is such a thing as too much. Whether it be for the kids or for us parents. I just stumbled upon a list of creative uses for extra Halloween candy that I think would definitely be worth giving a whirl. So, if you have […]
I love anything with pumpkin so I decided to get creative and put a new twist on my chocolate chip cookie recipe.
The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) just released a report that says plopping children under two in front of a television screen is a no-no. Not shocking, but a little surprising. Being a mom of a 14-month-old I’m very conscious about how much ‘screen time’ is around Chloé. That also includes a show I may […]
I wonder if it’s because I’m a new mom? But, over the weekend I purchased my 4th Halloween costume for Chloe. She is only 14 months old and we have gone through multiple ones. The problem is, I keep buying everything online, so it either doesn’t fit, or isn’t what I was looking for. My […]
A recent Savers Halloween Shopping Survey actually found dog costumes are growing in popularity. Pet owners expect to spend $59 on average to costume their four-legged family member.

My husband and I just came back from a weekend trip to New York City without the baby. This was our first time away without her, but it was only for one night. This story is not really part of the post, but the reason I’m bringing this topic up. The weekend was great, we […]
Even before I had a child I was obsessed with day planners and organizers. That was one of my favorite things to buy when back-to-school shopping. I know, I’m a geek. I feel like at this point, I’ve tried them all. The student planner, the leather “sophisticated” planner, the pocket planner, the free calendar planner […]
One of my favorite things about the Rachael Ray magazine is the healthy, pet recipes that are included in every issue. Often I make homemade dog biscuits for Riley because it’s fun, healthy and affordable. Not to mention he whimpers at the sight of them! I’ve never seen him get more excited over anything. He […]
Since my daughter is 13 months now, she can eat almost everything my husband and I eat. Sometimes, when it’s just Chloé and I, I’m at a loss as to what to cook for both of us because it doesn’t always make sense to make a ‘complete’ meal. In my house we have a saying […]
