Learn How to Keep Your Child From Losing Their Belongings – 4 Ways to Label Your Child’s Back to School Gear

I can’t believe that school will be starting soon and in some areas classes have already started.  It is crazy to think about who fast this summer has gone by.  Last weekend I decided to take advantage of tax free weekend and I bought my children most of the items that they will need on the first day of school.  I also bought extra basic…

Do you enjoy grilling out during the summer months to avoid heating up your house while using your oven to cook meals for your family?   It is possible some families are able to grill out year round depending on where you live.  For most families grilling season typically begins when the temperatures get warmer outside or around Memorial Day.   Often times…

The FL rain has turned my lawn into rabbit (hare) food!

The rain has been somewhat annoying these past few weeks. Raining a bit even on days when no rain was expected to be in the forecast by weathermen...I never really listened to them anyway. This is FL, rainy season, so I guess it's to be expected.



I love how green it has made my grass, but with the grass getting a drink of water so often, my kids…

OMG!!! Can You Believe I Shopped Organic?

Keeping up with this new dieting experience, I had to pick up a few items I kept forgetting to look for. Who knew Walmart and the local grocery stores sold organic food? I know, I know...that's a given. But, I never had an interest in them because I assumed the price would be way to high for my piggy bank. That was definitely true when considering the price of items at the grocery and "real" food grocery stores with the price…

Leave the Colors in the Crayon Box

Recently, I did a post that included a recipe for homemade Macaroni & Cheese.  In that post, I was discussing the backlash that Kraft is receiving because of its refusal to eliminate artificial dyes in their American version of Macaroni & Cheese.  The reason I say “American version” is because they have…

Take Me Out to the Ballgame

As my beloved Chicago Cubs celebrate their Opening Day, I thought I’d talk today about making healthier choices at the ballpark.  As a baseball fan and someone who used to work in professional baseball, I can tell you that part of the overall experience is the food and drink.  It just isn’t realistic to expect anyone…

Buffalo Potato Bake

Family's Opinion:



Let me preface this recipe that I did NOT make this a CLEAN version. I waited too long to hit up the healthy food store in the next town over so I did the best that I could do with what I could find on a Sunday…

It's Not Rocket Science

Last week, I did a post about the child obesity epidemic in the United States.  In that post, the first point I wanted to make is that food is fuel.  When you realize that very fact, it becomes easier to make better choices.   It’s all about how you view yourself.

If you could buy yourself a brand new car and money was not an option, what kind of car would it be?  Visualize that car.  Imagine yourself in the driver’s seat.  Take in that “new car” smell – actually don’t…

Kraft Ain't Got Nothin' On THIS Mac 'N Cheese

There has been a whole lot in the news lately about Kraft Foods and their boxed macaroni and cheese.  And with good reason.  Ever wonder what gives the product its golden, “cheesy” color?  Artificial dyes my friend.  I mean, come on.  The “cheese” is a yellow powder that you mix with milk and butter.

But here’s the kicker.  Several other countries have banned these artificial dyes and refused to sell any products containing them.  So did that mean that these European boys and girls…

Hockey Themed Birthday Party Ideas

Our little guy, Rocco turned 5 on March 10th and being that his latest obsession is hockey & ice-skating, it was only fitting to throw him a hockey/skating themed party!

But here’s the catch.  I delivered our 3rd baby boy 2 weeks before his birthday so this party was thrown together last minute!  Why…

Rainbow Fruit Tray : A Preschool Snack

http://www.thepiggytoes.com/2013/03/21/rainbow-fruit-tray-a-preschool-snack/

I signed up to bring Fresh Fruit for Roman’s pre-school class and when I showed up with this tray, I had signed up for the WRONG CLASS!  Wouldn’t you know, the wrong folder was on the counter at the wrong time when I scribbled our names in for the 21st of March.  Thankfully, Roman’s sweet…

The 411 on GMO's

If I were to ask the majority of people in my little community what they know about GMO, most of them would probably say “not much”.  A few (sadly) would likely say “you mean the car company?”  Sure, you chuckle but it’s true.  Most people have no clue what a GMO is or why it would be important to them.

So, I decided to put something together for the average Joe that explains what a GMO is and why there’s so much in the news on this subject right now.  They say “knowledge is power”,…

Children - The New Faces of Obesity

It’s no secret that obesity is a problem in the United States.  And in spite of the fact that a hunger problem exists as well, our population as a whole eats more and moves less than the citizens of other countries.  Sadly, it’s no longer just affecting adults, but children as well.  Even though medicine has made huge strides and people, on average, are living longer, it has been said that today’s generation of children and teenagers may not live as long as their parents will.  So,…

Our little guy, Rocco turned 5 this past Sunday… 5!!!  A WHOLE HAND!!!  I seriously can’t believe it.

Fussy About Fruit

I know that my son gets plenty of vitamins because he takes a fantastic supplement and I “hide” vegetables and fruits in just about everything (might have to do a post about that).  But when it comes to eating fruits and vegetables in their natural state, it’s all about the “dip”.

He doesn’t like apple slices unless there is peanut butter involved.  Forget about carrots if there is no ranch dressing.  Salad?  Better have some raspberry vinaigrette.  I should be glad, I know but I…
