Family Movie Night: When the Game Stands Tall + a Killer Baked Potato Skins Recipe

For many kids, including my own, today marks the start of Christmas break. The kids will head home from school today, excited about the days off to come. What better way to kick off Christmas vacation than a family movie night?

Baked Potato Skins and When the Game Stands Tall - a perfect football themed family movie night!

My twelve year old son loves watching movies with the family, and he’s always begging me to find something awesome to watch. I’m running out of ideas, so I was thrilled when Walmart sent me a copy of When the Game Stands Tall to review.

Give the Gift of an Herb Garden: AeroGarden 3SL Review

A couple of weeks ago I told you I was going to be testing the AeroGarden 3SL. I planted my seed pods right before Thanksgiving and told you if I was able to grow anything, it would be a small miracle.

The AeroGarden is a great gift for a person who wants an indoor herb garden, but doesn't necessarily consider herself a gardener. The Aerogarden 3SL is available at Walmart for just $49.97.

I’m happy to report that miracles do happen. Even this brown thumb is able to grow herbs and veggies in the AeroGarden!

Intrigued? You should be!

Holiday Guest Prep: When Your Guest Has Food Allergies

It seems that in the last several years the number of people with food allergies and sensitivities has exploded! I know people who can’t have gluten, milk, or peanuts. Personally, I can’t eat sugar or too many carbs, so I completely understand how difficult the holidays can be…especially when you spend them away from home.

What do you do if your holiday guests have food allergies?  If your extended stay guests have dietary restrictions, here are a few tips to make them more comfortable.

What if you’re the hostess, and you’re unfamiliar with hosting people with dietary limitations? Living with diabetes for the last couple of years has given me plenty of experience. Hopefully my experience can help your guests feel more comfortable and help you feel less awkward.
