Pickles and Ice Cream is a cookbook featuring bizarre pregnancy cravings. It contains random recipes like “Oreos and Toothpaste” or “Tomato Soup with M&Ms.” The finished food creations were then  photographed like gourmet meals and feature short stories about the women who craved them. Hungry much? Now, I never had any crazy cravings during either of my two pregnancies, but I certainly know some women who have…. So I love that this book takes a look at some of the most bizarre and brings them to...

Calling all cookie monsters! Molly Hamilton is changing the cookie game with her very own food innovation, Molly’s Bakeovers. Like me, this Mom is a cookie lover, but when it comes to her four kids, they all have food allergies. So, Molly took matters into her own hands and decided to make a treat her kids could enjoy, without the stuff that wouldn’t love them back. And in doing so, she made over the traditional cookie, with a cross between a cookie and granola bar aka “One Smart Cookie!” They are healthy, tasty...

Thanks to McDonald’s of the Greater Bay Area for sponsoring this post/trip, opinions are 100% my own. Garlic Fries are back at McDonald’s for the summer season…and only available in Northern California, so be sure to stop into a Bay Area McDonald’s to try them out (if you haven’t yet), before they’re all gone. McDonald’s Gilroy Garlic Fries are carefully created by combining their legendary french fries with a special blend of garlic, olive oil, parmesan and parsley. When you place an order for these fries, you can rest...

Thanks to McDonald’s of the Greater Bay Area for sponsoring this post/trip, opinions are 100% my own. I will never look at garlic the same way, ever again. This week, I had the wonderful opportunity to visit Christopher Ranch in Gilroy, California, where they are famous for GARLIC! The experience came my way via an invitation from McDonald’s and their Field to Restaurant program, where they took us on site to visit their locally sourced farm, for garlic. The garlic they source for GILROY GARLIC FRIES! If you’re not from California,...

If your kids are anything like mine, when it comes to a bowl of Lucky Charms cereal…they go for the “charms” first and honestly, most of the time, that’s all they want to eat! Well, I found a recipe online to create a Lucky Rainbow Chex Mex snack, and it came out pretty good…and it was super easy to make! It’s a colorful, crunchy snack and will certainly satisfy any sweet tooth. We made it as a St. Patrick’s Day treat, playing off it’s rainbow properties, but this would be a great addition...

This post is long overdue! Last summer while crafting my boy’s’ joint 3rd and 4th “Dinosaur Dig” birthday party, I had so much fun planning decor and activities…and I also managed to find inspiration and create a themed dessert that looked like dinosaurs in the dirt! You can browse around this site for more ideas. It was super easy to do and tasted pretty good as well, although I do think some of the preschool crowd was a bit skeptical until they discovered what was inside! At any rate, it was super easy...

I’m not sure if the idea of “garlic fries” will resonate with people outside of Northern California, but if you’re familiar with the area and/or are a garlic lover, I’m sure you’ve heard of Gilroy. At any rate, yesterday I had the opportunity to be part of a special blogger event in San Francisco to celebrate Gilroy Garlic Fries at McDonald’s. I have been very interested to get a taste of these fries and it was a bonus that I could bring my family with me…I didn’t have to twist the...

Every year when October comes and the signs of fall are around, it’s hard not to think of all the yummy goodness that comes along with it. I mean all the sweet treats and fun foods that always seem to kick off at Halloween and take us to Thanksgiving and eventually to Christmas and the New Year! So, as we close in on some spooky good times for the last day of this month, I couldn’t help but notice a couple really cute handmade Halloween-themed treats. First up, my friend Jenni posted this fabulous picture of some fun Jalapeno...

My girlfriend posted a photo of these fruit kabobs she put together for her kids holiday party and these Santa Hats are TOO CUTE not to share!! All you need are toothpicks, strawberries, flat marshmallows – used for smores and (green) grapes!!! HO HO HO!!! ...

Every week, Chef Bob of Farm Fresh Supermarkets, makes an appearance on the TV show I host and this week he made his “Holiday Mix Nuts Roca Candy.” Now, I’m not big on nuts, but I know people tend to go “nuts” for this stuff, especially around this time of year! Well, he graciously shared his recipe with me, so now I’m going to share it with you! Holiday Mix Nuts Roca Candy Prep time: 10 minutes Cooking time: 20 minutes Cooling time: 1 hour Ingredients: 1 lb. Unsalted Butter 2 cups Sugar 2 Tbsp Light...
