Now that Riley is getting older, I am much more concerned with how healthy we, as a family, are eating. Meat is a great source of protein and so we include a serving of meat every day in Riley's diet. Of course, preparation is key in determining how healthy any food really is and so I was very glad to have the opportunity to try out the brand new T-fal OptiGrill.
The T-fal OptiGrill is the new, one-of-a-kind way to grill indoors. The innovative OptiGrill features a cooking sensor that guarantees a perfectly cooked meal every time. The built-in sensor automatically adapts to the thickness of your food and delivers perfect doneness from rare to well-done for six different programs: burgers, poultry, sandwiches, sausage, red meat and fish.
I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for MedImmune. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating.
Now that I'm a mom, I can't even begin to imagine what I'd do without my daughter. If anything were to happen to her, I know that it would break me. Moms form such strong bonds with their children, beginning in the womb, yet there is a silent enemy out there which threatens to break that bond and bring serious injury to your newborn. I want to share more information with you about a potentially life-threatening risk to babies called RSV disease.

With Halloween rapidly approaching, parents everywhere are making sure their entire family is ready for the big night. I've got flashlights, candy pails, gobs of candy to give out and of course, the ever important costume ready. But is that enough?
Although Halloween night is a great time for all involved, it can also be quite dangerous. Kids running to and fro through neighborhoods while cars drive back and forth continuously can be a recipe for disaster. That's why I'm glad that Stride Rite has a whole slew of stylish footwear selections which are also extremely safe for children to wear at night.
I like to think of myself as a practical gal by nature. From as far back as I can remember, I've strived to conserve whatever resources I had available. Be it birthday money, toys or craft supplies, I was careful to make the most of what I had. Today, our family budget is always under my watchful eye. Thanks to Safeway and the ExxonMobil Fuel Rewards program, it's never been easier to safe a LOT of money on both groceries and gas.
Halloween is a wonderful holiday full of ghouls, goblins and everything that goes bump in the night. Being scared is a lot of fun, which is why Halloween is one of my favorite holidays...even as an adult. Of course, getting terrific goodies at every turn doesn't hurt either, and The Hershey's Company has always supplied plenty of scrumptious ways to help us celebrate!
New treats this Halloween season include: Fall Rolo Chewy Caramels, Cadbury Screme Eggs and Jolly Rancher Candy Apple Lollipops. All of your regular Hershey's favorites like Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, Reese's Pieces, Kit Kat, and Hershey's Miniatures are also donning their holiday duds. Hershey's has even launched a fabulous Halloween themed website called "Celebrate with Hershey's", which contains plenty of terrific holiday recipes, crafts, decorating ideas and more! This is a great resource for everything Halloween and there's plenty there to make your mouth water too!
