National Hot Chocolate Day

National Hot Chocolate Day

Today is National Hot Chocolate Day! So excited about this. Hot chocolate is one of my favorite hot beverages. You can keep your coffees and lattes! In honor of National Hot Chocolate Day I’m going to share with you my two favorite recipes for Hot Chocolate. This first recipe can be made on the stove top or in the crock pot.  I use the stove because my crock pot’s low setting gets hotter than most and I’m afraid I’ll scorch the milk. If using in a crock pot, mix all the ingredients together and cook on low for two hours. For those of you who do not like Nutella, like my weirdo friend Sarah ;-), you can substitute it with 1 1/2 cups of chocolate chips. I like to use milk …

Dinner in a Snap - Shrimp Tacos

Dinner in a Snap – Shrimp Tacos

Are you on SnapChat? I’ve been a holdout for a long time because… 1) I just didn’t “get it” and, 2) I was afraid I’d be bombarded with inappropriate snaps, lol. But after a fellow blogger gave me a few awesome tips on how to use SnapChat, I’ve become a little obsessed. More so watching other people’s snaps, but I’m getting better about posting. If you are interested in following me I’m @mym0mmybrain (the o is a zero). Anyhow… this whole discussion is coming about because I’m super excited about my new series called “Dinner in a Snap”! I will be posting quick dinner entrees via SnapChat. Hope you hop on over there and follow me (from your smart phone)… if SnapChat isn’t your thing, no worries! I will be posting …

#NationalCheeseLoversDay

Cheese! Glorious Cheese! #NationalCheeseLoversDay!

I. Love. Cheese. God help me if I ever become lactose intolerant because I cannot go a day without cheese. I feel so bad for those of you with a dairy allergy/intolerance; that is cruel and unusual punishment IMO!! (I guess there is always Lactaid.) Since it’s #NationalCheeseLoversDay I thought I would share my recipes that utilize my favorite ingredient. Now I’m off to go make an inside out grilled cheese sandwich for lunch! This is my most favorite comfort food ever!! Here is a quick and easy recipe that my kids ask for at least once a week. This dish is so easy even your husband can make it! This is one of my most popular recipes and so yummy!! Here is an amazing copycat recipe for Nan and Byron’s Train …

All opinions are mine alone. #EatLightEatRight #CollectiveBias I can eat soup anytime… it doesn’t matter what the weather is like outside, a piping hot bowl of Progresso® soup always hits the spot for me. It is a staple in my pantry; I stock up on all the amazing Progresso® Light varieties especially when they are on sale at Walmart. It’s a quick and easy meal that’s filling but low in calories. Perfect on those busy days when I don’t have a lot of time to make lunch. One day I had a major craving for my tortilla soup but I didn’t have all the ingredients on hand. I looked around my pantry to see what I could make and a light bulb went off. I …
