Mockmill KitchenAid Grain Mill Review

Mockmill KitchenAid Grain Mill Review

We really try to eat as healthy as possible in our home. Even when it comes to packing my kids lunches for school or activities for summer I want my kids to eat fresh and healthy foods! Making our own bread is so easy and I KNOW what is in our bread too. All natural ingredients with no preservatives! We don’t stop there though, muffins and desserts too! I already have my KitchenAid® mixer on my counter, so I just add the Mockmill flour mill attachment, pour in enough wheat berries for my recipe and my meals just hit a whole new fresh level!Continue reading

How to Date Your Kids

How to date your kids

Dating your kids is so very important. Whether you have a picnic, dinner and a movie or take them some place special, you need to date your kids! I love that each year my dad still takes me out to lunch for my birthday! That has been a tradition since I was two years old. Now I have kids of my own, and I do the same thing to them! Recently, I took my kids with my mom for an extra special date! We went to the Great Wolf Lodge for a Howl-O-Ween experience! We had such great time at the Monster Bash Dance Parties, Trick-or-Treat trail, Spooktacular Story Time and Costume Parade. And that isn’t even including all the fun we had at the park and other fun activities they normally have!Continue reading

Easy Ideas for a Great Summer Cookout

Fire up that grill, make it sizzle and pour you a glass and cheers to a new season. Our family has some great German recipes thanks to my mother-in-law living in Germany.

Just keep it simple, but use quality ingredients like Smithfield® Yuengling® Bratwurst which is brought to you by Smithfield® Craft Collection™.Continue reading

Easy Tips for Grilling

Keep the heat out of the kitchen, let’s grill with Smithfield®

Tips for Grilling

No one wants a hot kitchen during summer. So this Memorial day let’s spend more time grilling. I feel like we always grill the same stuff over and over again, so we went to Food Lion, and I found out that they have a great selection of Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork! These are slow-marinated and already perfectly seasoned in the bag which means no more prep work, and you get to enjoy Real Flavor, Real Fast. That means we have more time to enjoy the good food and the company of our friends and family during our Memorial day celebration or for our summertime get-togethers.

Unfortunately, I know a lot of people that don’t like to grill out because they find it intimidating. So I want to share my tips for grilling and easy recipe. With these for sure, you can have a great grilling holiday experience!
