Lemonade and summer go hand in hand. I could drink a glass (or five) every day. Starting this memorial day, I am trying to be better about the food choices I make, and that means I am trading the sugar in my lemonade for Stevia In The Raw®. To celebrate, I made super simple red white and blue lemonade.
Yum. So yum.
The thing about Stevia In The Raw Baker's Bag is, you use it just like you would sugar, so if you use 2 tbsp of sugar in your normal lemonade recipe, then you use 2 tbsp of … [Read More...]
Are you already dreading the "Mom, I'm BORED!" that comes every Summer. We totally were too, which is why we put together this Summer Survival Kit! It takes all those down-time moments of boredom and turns them into something fun!

Sometimes you get mad, and that's totally okay. Sometimes kids get mad, and that's okay, too. The problem comes when kids can't figure out how to channel their anger, but this cookie recipe can fix that. So, if you have mad kids, make aggression cookies!

Life is tough. There is little else to say about it than that. We all struggle, we all fight with schedules, and finding time for others, and finding time for ourselves.

So here I am, giving you permission, to take care of you. An easy way to start is with this simple Citrus Herb Refresher. It's only a couple of ingredients and you have to trust me … [Read More...]
I am not a nice person when I'm hungry. Everyone who has spent any real amount of time with me has made a joke about HANGRY JAMIE at some point. But here's the deal-- when you're hangry, (so hungry you're angry) you need something real, something substantial. Something jam packed with protein that's healthy AND delicious.

I am throwing a party for high school kids soon, and one of the things they HAVE TO HAVE is their coffee. (Is this a thing now? I mostly drank kool-aid in high school, I would be so lame.) Everyone knows coffee is better in DIY coffee mugs, so we aren't going to drink just any coffee, we are going to drink from these DIY disposable coffee cups with custom sleeves.
Because we are awesome.
I bought these disposable coffee cups (affiliate link) for this project.
