These tips for reducing food waste are sponsored by Eden. All thoughts are my own.

With Earth Day right around the corner, lots of people are starting to think of ways they can be a little easier on the planet.  I’m not the most “green” person on the planet, but having grown up in a farming family I definitely do what I can for conservation efforts.  And for me, part of  those conservation efforts start in my own kitchen with reducing food waste.

7 Tips for Reducing Food Waste

In the US, we throw away a surprising 40% of the food we grow.  Having emptied out a few (dozen) packages of produce that’s gone by before it could be used I know it’s an easy problem to have.  So here are a few tips to help your family with reducing food waste. Continue reading »

Mother’s Day is right around the corner, and for someone I know, it’s a very special one.  I’m so excited to share that my sister-in-law and my brother are pregnant with their first child!  So this Mother’s Day will be her very first one.

I received these Disney music CDs in order to facilitate my post. All words and opinions are my own.

One of the things I love most about Disney movies is the music that accompanies them.  It always plays such an integral role in the storytelling.  Which is why Disney soundtracks and other Disney music CDs make up a good portion of my music library.

Great new Disney music CDs and soundtracks are available, including Disney's Into the Woods, Guardians of the Galaxy Awesome Mix Vol. 1, Disney Junior DJ Shuffle 2, and Disney Frozen The Songs

Recently I received an awesome mix of Disney music CDs that made the entire family happy.  Bubbles was thrilled with the Frozen and Disney Junior CDs, hubby immediately snagged the Guardians of the Galaxy Awesome Mix Vol. 1 (which I also love), and I was excited to get Into the Woods.

Lately I have been in the mood for my Mom’s Taco Salad.  It’s a great recipe (I’ll share it with you all one of these days), a little different than a traditional taco salad.  It’s not hard to make, but it does take a little advanced planning.

This Quick & Easy Taco Salad recipe has all the yummy flavors of a taco on one plate. No big shell needed, just add a few crushed tortilla chips to give you that nice crunch.Thank you to Lunchbox for sponsoring this post. Words & opinions are my own.

I was trying to decide what to make for lunch recently and after going through all the cabinets, fridge and freezer, I realized that I had everything on hand to make tacos.  Which meant that I had everything I needed to make the Quick & Easy Taco Salad recipe from the Kraft Recipe Hub.  Hubby likes taco salad, also, so I decided to whip this recipe up for lunch.
