Krusteaz breakfast mixes

I received a sample pack from Krusteaz to help promote Breakfast Night. Keep reading and enter below for a chance to win your own set of mixes!

Did you know that February is National Hot Breakfast month? It is. And if you’re like me and many other busy moms, you might agree that breakfast isn’t just good for the first meal of the day. Whether it’s an easy bowl of cereal after a big heavy lunch, or a filling and comforting meal of pancakes, bacon and eggs, it’s something that feels easy to prepare and a meal for which I always have ingredients on hand.


The kids were more than willing to have some blueberry belgian waffles one night as a part of my experiment. I had picked up a whole pineapple earlier that week, so I cut it up while the waffles were baking.

Krusteaz Waffles

For some reason, my 10 1/2 year old son said that the muffins would be something we should eat for dessert. So another night, we had a hybrid breakfast night, with a warm soup for dinner and chocolate chunk mini muffins for dessert. We’ll eat them for snacks and breakfast as well.


We’ve enjoyed the two products we tried. I could smell the blueberries before I even mixed it up, and I could taste them as well. They didn’t taste artificial, just full of berry flavor. I could say the same for the chocolate chunk muffins. They aren’t overly sweet, but there’s lots of great chocolate flavor.

The Zodiac Legacy: Convergence #ZodiacLegacy #Giveaway

The Zodiac Legacy: Convergence introduces a brand new series from Stan Lee, Stuart Moore and Andie Tong and Disney Press. I’m reading it aloud with my 5th grade son. We aren’t quite finished, but I wanted to post my thoughts, and point you to my phone interview with the creators, who helped me explain exactly how this new series came to be. It’s not a comic book, it’s not a graphic novel. It’s a full (very long, in fact!), novel, with a few images per chapter, but the whole thing reads very visually. In spite of the fact that it’s so long, I think that a reluctant reader, especially one interested in super heroes and already a fan of comics, would definitely be engaged by

Enter to win Free-Range Kids, one of Jennifer’s and Dawn’s 5-Star Reads

Back in July 2009, Dawn and I each read and reviewed Free-Range Kids: Giving Our Children the Freedom We Had Without Going Nuts with Worry by Lenore Skenazy. Our back and forth Q&A style review remains one of my favorites, not only because I am still recommending this book 5 1/2 years later, but because it continues to inform my parenting choices. Dawn had the opportunity to preview Lenore Skenazy’s new TV show (link is now live). Please check out her thoughts on World’s Worst Mom on TLC as well as a post at 5 Minutes for Mom featuring her interview with Skenazy: Have your parenting choices been questioned? I noticed that the paperback version (pictured above) has a slightly changed title which I like: Free-Range Kids, How

The Life Intended #Giveaway

The Life Intended by Kristin Harmel is a novel of what might have been. Kate and Dan are in a relationship, and it’s getting serious. He’s nice, almost perfect. He’s good-looking, gets along with Kate’s friends, and nothing seems to ruffle him. If all that’s true, then why does she feel something is missing? When she finds out that she can’t have children, she discovers that he always assumed they wouldn’t because they were fortysomethings. She had never thought about it either way, but the definitive answer makes her sad about what might have been. Does that mean things should be over with Dan? She finds herself thinking more and more about the life that she was intended to live. Ten years ago her husband Patrick
