Progresso Recipe Starters Game Day Giveaway

In my opinion the best part of game day is the food.  When we're entertaining for a big game, I like to have plenty of different snacks for everyone to enjoy.   I get tired of eating the same things over and over so I'm always looking for  inspiration.  This year we're going to try some new ones thanks to Progresso Recipe Starters.  There are 5 flavors of Progresso Recipe Starters available.  They are Creamy Parmesan Basil, Creamy Portabella Mushroom, Creamy Roasted Garlic, Creamy Three Cheese and Fire Roasted Tomato.    If you're struggling for inspiration you can head over to Progresso's website and take a look at the recipes they've created.    The Easy White Chicken Chili made with Progresso Recipe Starters Creamy Roasted Garlic  looks … [Read more...]

Yoplait Gift Pack Giveaway

Every time I go to the store to pick up yogurt I am amazed by the selection of flavors and types.    Yoplait has so many delicious flavors available.  Since I have a sweet tooth I am more drawn to flavors like raspberry cheesecake, red velvet cake and vanilla.    Why vanilla?  It's simple, vanilla is great to add some fresh berries to or dip graham crackers in or on occasion add chocolate chips or cut up mini candy bar for a dessert.  Currently the boys beg for orange cream, very cherry and strawberry every time they're anywhere near the yogurt . I haven't tried the Yoplait Greek 100 yet and that will have to change soon. I've talked about how I want to lose weight and be healthier and I've been tossing around the idea of joining Weight … [Read more...]

Betty Crocker Cereal Muffin Mixes Giveaway

My boys love to have a variety of options each morning for breakfast.  Since I'm not exactly a morning person, I'm always looking for options that can be made ahead or they can heat up in the morning.    Muffins are a favorite of theirs, but each prefers a different flavor so they don't get them too often.    When where were at the store recently and they saw the Betty Crocker Cereal Muffin Mixes they were begging to give them a try.    Shockingly all three boys agreed on the Cinnamon Toast Crunch flavor as the one they had to try first.   I was surprised they didn't try to talk me into buying the Reese's Puffs Muffin mix by claiming it was for me! The Cinnamon Toast Crunch Muffins were a hit.   I haven't seen a full pan of muffins … [Read more...]

Pillsbury Artisan Pizza Crust Gift pack Giveaway

My boys would eat pizza for every meal if I let them.  It used to be they preferred to have delivery pizza, but now their tastes are changing.   They love when we make homemade pizzas more now because they can have exactly what they want.  For the past few months they've been requesting homemade pizza more often than delivered.  When I asked why they said they like that with homemade we make smaller ones so they can each have exactly what they want.   Brody always wants mushrooms and only gets them when he has his very own pizza because his brothers hate them.  When it comes to crust we've tried almost every kind there is but have come to prefer Pillsbury.  When I saw the new Pillsbury Artisan Pizza Crusts I couldn't wait to give it a try. … [Read more...]

Fiber One Nutty Clusters and Almonds {Giveaway}

This year I have made getting healthier a goal.  One of the ways I am doing that is by eating better.  I am making more of an effort to get enough fiber in my diet daily.   One easy way I have found to do that it by eating a bowl of Fiber One Nutty Clusters with Almonds for breakfast.    Each serving contains 11 grams of fiber (43% of the Daily Value), 23 grams of whole grain (at least 48 recommended daily), and 180 calories.  The mixture of crunchy nut clusters, real sliced almonds and whole grain flakes in every bowl is a delicious way to start your day.   To learn more about the flavors available or nutrition facts check out their website here! Giveaway: 1 lucky reader will win a Fiber One gift pack. Mandatory Entry: Tell … [Read more...]

Cheerios New 2 Box Packaging {Giveaway}

Since having kids I have found myself shopping more at wholesale clubs for our pantry staples.    While I love the values that I can find sometimes the packaging has just not worked out the best for us.  Most times it's one big bag that I have to separate into different containers or hope that everyone remembers to roll the bag and clip it shut.   Cheerios has recognized that and now has new 2 box packaging available at your local Costco, Sams or BJ's.  This new packaging works perfect for my family.   The boxes are bigger than what I can get at the grocery store and with three boys eating the same cereals every morning that is what I need.   Giveaway: Two winners will receive two (2)  packages of Cheerios new 2 box … [Read more...]

Pillsbury Breakfast Sandwiches Giveaway

Mornings in our house don't always go smoothly.    Most of the time the boys are fighting over what they want for breakfast.    One usually insists on something cooked.   He doesn't really care what it is as long as it's hot.   Enter Pillsbury's new Grands Biscuit Sandwiches and Pillsbury Egg Scrambles. The first time I introduced the boys to the new Pillsbury Grands Biscuit Sandwiches they were excited that they came in bacon and sausage, their two favorites!    I picked up two boxes of sausage and one box of bacon sandwiches for them to try.  That first morning they couldn't decide which to try so we made one of each and split them in half.  This way the boys could try both flavors.   All three boys loved them!    They loved them so much … [Read more...]
