Do you ever feel like your life has gone a bit vanilla? I mean, I love vanilla, don’t get me wrong, but especially after a long winter I feel like things have been vanilla for far too long. I’m ready to add some spice!
I was hired by Kraft to create a recipe using their Kraft Fresh Take Cheddar Jack and Bacon mixtures. This post is about my experience. I’m talking Bacon again this week with a new #KraftFreshTake challenge! You may remember that with my first #KraftFreshTake challenge I made these amazing Cheesy Bacon Bite appetizers. Now, I’m […]
Amazing lunches have never been my strong suit. Dinner? I can do. Lunch? It’s always been hard for me to create lunches my kids will enjoy and that won’t get thrown out with the trash when lunch is over. I used to simply do sandwiches for them… I’d add a fruit and some pretzels or […]

Everything is better with bacon, right? I was recently challenged by Kraft to create a new appetizer using their Fresh Takes Cheddar Jack and Bacon cheese and breadcrumb mix. What could make a Cheddar Jack and Bacon better? More bacon, of course!
“Ring-a-ling, ring-a-ling”… the sick bell tolls. “Ring-a-ling, ring-a-ling”… I charge up the stairs, peeking in on the patients who have summoned. “I’m cold, can I have more covers?” “Can I have a popcicle?” “I need a drink.” “My tummy hurts.” Naturally, as a parent, when your kids are sick you want to do anything you […]
