Thank you to Hamilton Beach for providing us with smoothie blenders to make our smoothie recipes.  All words and opinions are my own.

Smoothies are something I’ve enjoyed for a long time, especially back when I lived in Florida.  They’re tasty and refreshing, and can be quite healthy.  When I was in college, we’d often stop for one on the way back from the beach.

It wasn’t until recently, though, that I started seeing a lot of homemade smoothie recipes.  I was interested in giving them a try, but I lacked the proper equipment.  We had a small blender, but it wasn’t really up to the challenge of crushing ice.

Thank you to Hamilton Beach for providing a Breakfast Sandwich Maker to make our back-to-school mornings run more smoothly. All thoughts and words are my own.

It can take a few days to settle into a new schedule once school goes back in session.  You may be tempted to skip breakfast for yourself, or the kids may say “oh, I’ll grab something at school” (who knows if they will) as they run out the door.  But as breakfast has been shown to help concentration during the school day, it’s important to resist the urge to add a few minutes to your day by ignoring breakfast.

For our family we keep our mornings on track with breakfast sandwiches.  In the past I purchased the frozen kind; lite for me, regular for everyone else.  While convenient they’re not exactly inexpensive plus you’re limited to just a few flavor combinations.  Then the folks at Hamilton Beach sent us their new Breakfast Sandwich Maker and our mornings got a lot more tasty.
