Gluten Free Chicken Nuggets?

As I mentioned yesterday we recently began trying to eat foods that are Gluten free. Today we tried gluten free chicken nuggets. Let me start by saying that I am anti-chicken nugget. I’ve never been a fan (especially after seeing Jamie Oliver recreate how they are made). But, as I’ve started moving towards gluten free [...]

Ronzoni Smart Taste Pasta

Ronzoni Smart Taste Pasta

I wouldn’t say that my boys are “picky” eaters, but they are they kind of kids that I would call “particular” when it comes to what they eat.  A good example would be with spaghetti. I can get them to eat traditional spaghetti, but when I tried to incorporate whole wheat spaghetti noodles a while [...]

Listerine Oral Care Challenge

Listerine Oral Care Challenge

Getting my 7yr old to brush his teeth can be a real bummer of an experience.  Not so much because he doesn’t like to brush, but because a) he doesn’t think it’s fun and b) it signifies two things – bedtime & school time. When Mom Central contacted us recently and invited us to participate in [...]
