Traditional Smith Island Cake: An Impressive Treat

Posted by , January 5th, 2015

In my family, we have three members with birthdays that fall close to a holiday.  My son’s birthday usually falls on or around Labor Day.  My daughter, with her late November birthday, sometimes turns a year older on Thanksgiving Day, and my husband was born six days before Christmas.  It’s important to me that their birthdays not get lost in the shuffle of the busy holiday season.  So each gets to choose a special birthday dinner and whatever kind of birthday cake they want.   Read More »

Easy Homemade Gifts For The Foodie On Your List

Posted by , January 2nd, 2015

Everyone has that one person (or maybe more than one!) on their gift list that is nearly impossible to shop for during the holidays.  I’ve always given those people food, because everyone likes to eat, right? Read More »


Easy Cherry Handpies

Posted by , November 20th, 2014

Thanksgiving is almost here, and that means pie!  Don’t get me wrong, I love the family time, the turkey, the leftovers, the crisp cold air, and Turkey Day parades and football, but one of the very best parts of the holiday is pie.  Cherry, to be exact. Read More »

Posted by , November 3rd, 2014

The other day, my husband had a chocolate craving and we didn’t have any in the house. (For Shame!)

He was all set to go out in a pouring rain storm at ten at night to go to the store, when I remembered we had ShopRite hot chocolate packets in the pantry. Read More »


Be Game Day Ready With ShopRite Snacks!

Posted by , September 19th, 2014

We are big football fans in my family and now that football season is officially here, I’m pumped to cheer my team on.  No football game is complete without some serious food.  I’m partial to chili and cornbread, or steak and cheese sandwiches, or wings with celery and blue cheese sauce.  Plus, there’s the snacks!

Healthy Back To School Snacks From ShopRite

Posted by , September 12th, 2014

For the past two years at my children’s school, a nutritionist from a local program aimed at teaching school children about healthy eating comes to speak to the kids.  They learn about healthy foods, vitamins and minerals, and about what they need to eat to keep their minds fresh and their bodies strong.  Read More »


Win A Trip To NYC With Barilla And ShopRite!

Posted by , September 8th, 2014

In my busy life, I work two part time jobs.  I’m also the coordinator for the soccer program at my children’s school, and a troop leader for my daughter’s Girl Scout troop.

Sun Safety With ShopRite Sunscreen

Posted by , August 27th, 2014

Summer in my family means a lot of outdoor time.  Swimming, hiking, gardening or just hanging out at the park are all things we like to do when temperatures soar.

Both kids inherited my fair skin, but neither of them is particularly fond of taking time out from their fun to apply and reapply sunscreen. Read More »


Diet Food: Rosemary And Chives Pork Chops With ShopRite BBQ Sauce

Posted by , July 8th, 2014

The Fourth of July has come and gone, the sun is blazing, and my garden is starting to produce.  It’s easy to eat healthy when the food is fresh and flavorful.  I love cooking with homegrown herbs and veggies…but I don’t like standing over a hot stove for hours on end.  Shortcuts are totally my friend.

My “I Refuse To Eat Rabbit Food” Diet: Strawberry Banana Smoothies With Pure Via

Posted by , June 11th, 2014

I’m on a diet.
