4 Reasons To Book The Garden Grill for Breakfast At Epcot at Walt Disney World | #DisneyWorld

The Garden Grill is always on our must do dining list when we visit Disney World. In my opinion, it is one of the best character meals that there is, for several different reasons. A Smith Family visit to Disney World would just not be the same without it. My in-laws will be hitting Disney World with us in a few months and we knew right away the one breakfast we had to make sure they did not miss is The Garden Grill. I am thrilled to say that we were able to book it – and cannot wait to show them why we love it so much!

Get Up and Go This Summer With Go Organically Fruit Snacks | #Summer

My youngest daughter is going off to all day Preschool starting in September. Because of this, we are really taking advantage of the summer. We have traveled around a lot – and have spent many afternoons packing up lunch and having a picnic together. This is one of our favorite things to do on a nice warm day. Living in upstate New York, we have to enjoy the nice weather while we can.

Make Dinners Easy with a Terra’s Kitchen Subscription | #TerrasKitchen

I have always enjoyed cooking, but I am not one for coming up with good recipes. I have many cookbooks, but honestly I can flip through one for an hour and still not know what I want to make for dinner. That is one of the many reasons I love Terra’s Kitchen. They make dinners easy by sending you the ingredients you need – already prepped. They have a good amount of recipes to choose from, but not too many that you can’t decide. And the recipes are really easy to follow.

DIY Smurf Cupcakes | #SmurfsMovie #Cupcakes

My daughters are very excited for the new Smurfs movie! They love those little blue guys – and OK, my husband and I do too! We grew up watching them and couldn’t be any more excited about the fact that our girls get to as well! I, personally, am so happy they are still around – and with new content coming out. In order to celebrate Smurfs: The Lost Village, we put together some fun cupcakes – and I am going to tell you exactly how you can make them too!

Why I Love Brooklyn Bean Coney Island Caramel Coffee | #BBR

I am one of those people that cannot get through my morning without a cup of coffee or two. If I don’t have coffee, I just cannot function. In order to get healthier, I have recently stopped using creamer and sugar in my coffee. It sounded awful at first but thanks to Brooklyn Bean Roastery, I have been able to actually enjoy black coffee. They have so many different flavors that I feel like I am still getting variety with my coffee. One of my all time favorite flavors is their Coney Island Caramel Coffee.

Valentine’s Day “No Bake” Cupcake Cake & Treats | #ValentinesDay #Recipe

My girls and I love being creative in the kitchen, especially around the holidays. But let’s be honest, sometimes there just isn’t time to do the baking part. To celebrate Valentine’s Day this year, we decided to go ahead and let Otis Spunkmeyer handle the baking part for us (because they are amazing at it) and we would have fun with the decorating part. We started with some of their mini cupcakes – chocolate and vanilla – and decided to turn them into a Valentine’s Day Cupcake Cake! We purchased some pink strawberry frosting and some sprinkles and got to work. You can do this yourself and it is REALLY easy (and delicious).

Start Your Morning Right With Wakey Wakey Coffee from Java Factory Roasters | #Giveaway #PSILoveYou

I recently started taking a few steps to live a healthier lifestyle. One of those things was cutting out creamer from my coffee. As someone who drinks a minimum of four coffees a day, this is hard for me. I have always enjoyed creamer in my coffee. Last week I decided to cut creamer out all together and I tried coffee solo. The coffee I chose was Wakey Wakey from Java Factory Roasters – and not only could I stomach it, after a few cups I was enjoying it! This was the perfect coffee to start with as it is a light roast, but has a great flavor.

Egg salad has always been a favorite in our house, however, the mayonnaise is not very good for you. We decided to come up with a healthier alternative – and it turned out to be amazing! If you are on the Nutrisystem diet, this would count as 1 Powerfuel, 1 Smartcarb, and 1 Extra. If not, this is just a healthy alternative to an egg salad sandwich. Enjoy!

Brooklyn Bean Roastery Peanut Butter Cup Hot Cocoa Is The Perfect Winter Drink | #BBR

When the cold winter hits upstate New York, there is only one thing that can warm me up – hot cocoa. I love to sit in my kitchen or living room with a big mug of it to keep the chills away. I have always been a fan of hot cocoa – but when I recently discovered Brooklyn Bean Roastery’s Peanut Butter Hot Cocoa, I knew it was going to quickly become a favorite of mine. Reese’s are one of my favorite candies because I love the combination of chocolate and peanut butter.

Brooklyn Bean Roastery Seasonal Flavored Coffees Holiday #Giveaway

If you love coffee as much as I do – or even just a fraction of how much I do – I want to let you in on a little known secret. Brooklyn Bean Roastery Seasonal Flavored Coffees are amazing – and supe addicting! The Red Velvet is probably my most favorite coffee ever. With a dash of french vanilla cream, I feel like I am enjoying a delicious cupcake! BBR’s Gingerbread Man is another delicious flavor that reminds me of the holidays. It is the perfect coffee for cold winter mornings, or nights, on the porch.

Brooklyn Bean Roastery Midnight Hot Chocolate | #BBR

The cold weather is here and to me that means one thing – hot chocolate and cuddling with my young daughters. I am someone who relies on coffee to get through my day, but when it comes to the fall and winter, I need at least one steaming cup of hot cocoa too. And it helps that my 3 and 5 year old agree with me. Nearly every night we gather on the front porch or the back patio, sit under a blanket on a bench, and talk about our days over hot chocolate. This is a tradition that I hope continues as they get older (although I am expecting that it will dwindle during the teenage years).
