Healthy Snacks for Game Day

Warmer weather is finally making its appearance where I am from. This means all the fun Summer sports are starting. I love driving by the parks and seeing the kids playing.

I grew up on a diamond and am so excited to share this with my boys. But with game time, comes snack time. With two boys I needed  ...

The Easiest Garlic Mashed Potatoes

I really enjoy potatoes. But if we are honest I get bored of them. Trying to spice them up to make it seem like something different can be a pain. I decided that I would attempt to make Garlic Mashed Potatoes. I searched high and low for recipes but never found one that I liked personally. One has to much garlic, one had not enough and some had just garlic powder added. So I got in the kitchen and created a super simple recipe that is tasty! The Easiest Garlic Mashed Potatoes Ingredients:  ...

Now a days I spend so much time wondering what is good for us and what it is not. It stresses me out to the point I end up making the wrong choice.
