Nature’s Bakery: fig bar snacks

This post was created in partnership with Nature’s Bakery. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

I’ve never really made resolutions for the New Year. I’ve thought about things in a more general sense, like maybe this year we should try to be healthier, spend less time working, and more time with family. But I’ve never sat down and made a plan. I’ve never created specific goals or written down a way to meet them. THIS year is different.

My husband and I both declared that 2015 is the year of US. We have

21 campfire cooking recipes

Welcome to camping season! I’m an outdoorsy girl and love to camp. Back in those pre-kid days, we used to go every summer! And I mean camping—in a tent, in the woods, with a fire pit. One of my favorite memories is camping in the mountains of Colorado while visiting my brother and waking up to a light snowfall! We survived that trip on a giant can of beans, haha. Campfire cooking is the best. Plan your meals, fill your cooler, and start the fire! Here are some great campfire cooking recipes to get

How to Cure Cabin Fever with Kids

AHHHHHH!Did ya hear that all the way from my house in IL? I wouldn’t be surprised… it’s my frustration with THIS WINTER. I hate the cold anyway, but this winter has been especially brutal. Days when the city basically goes on lock-down and you aren’t supposed to leave the house. Days when Ryan’s preschool is cancelled (again… and again). Days when it snows so much, we can’t get out of our driveway.

We’re all going a little stir crazy over here! Not just me, but the kids, too. Some days there just isn’t

sweet and salty halloween treats

The first time I saw this simple and delicious treat was at Christmas time years ago. My great friend Jacalyn always made them. Then I started seeing them for fall or halloween treats with candy corn instead of red and green M&Ms.

Well… I went to the store to make these for the fall… I got excited by the cooler weather and our trip to northern Wisconsin… but it seems I was a bit ahead of the game. The grocery store didn’t have any candy corn out yet!!! AHHHHHHHHH!

I was totally bummed, but

snack time: mini chicken sandwiches

Ryan is a snacker. He’s a skinny kid and he just doesn’t eat a lot during one meal. So we usually have a couple snack times throughout the day… between breakfast and lunch and again between lunch and dinner. And maybe even another before bed! Meals are pretty easy. But I like to find new, fun ideas for snack time.

Ryan LOVES to “dip!” So pairing a food with a dipping sauce is almost a sure way to get the kid to eat about anything. He immediately sees the sauce and says “dip! dip!”
