Red Robin Restaurant and the Burgers for Better Schools Program

This post about Red Robin Restaurants has been sponsored. The Red Robin information and gift cards have been provided by Red Robin.  All opinions are my own. Red Robin Restaurant FUN! Last year, a Red Robin Restaurant opened up not too far from us.  We drive by it every couple of months and have mentioned giving it a try several times but never seem to find the time. You know how it is, right?  Always rushing to or from a practice or meeting?  Or you drive by right after you have already pulled out something for dinner that night?  When I … [Read more...]

Almond Butter Protein Bar Recipe with Premier Protein

This Almond Butter Protein Bar Recipe has been sponsored by Premier Protein but all opinions expressed are my own. #MyGoodEnergy #TeamPremier I spend a lot of time in the 'healthy and natural' section of the grocery store.  This is good for my health but not always good for my wallet.  I tend to spend an awful lot of money on groceries when I really need to be making some of these things from scratch.  Protein bars are a great way to boost energy after a workout or fill up a hungry teenager after a busy day at school. Even starting your … [Read more...]

White Wine Sangria Recipe with Fresh Herbs ‪#‎LBandMe‬

Homemade Meatball Sub Recipe and #PublixVivaItalia Night

The information, products and giveaway prize in this Homemade Meatball Sub Recipe were provided by General Mills through Linqia. Some nights I have plenty of time to sit around while a whole chicken roasts in the oven and some nights I barely have time to throw a bowl of cereal down in front of a hungry kid.  While I love to cook from scratch, a busy schedule with two active teens doesn't always make that possible.  I have found, however, that the key to getting a healthy, homemade meal on the table every night of the week is GOOD PLANNING!  … [Read more...]

This crazy good coffee post has been sponsored by RaceTrac but all opinions expressed here are my own. As a busy mom, I spend a fair amount of my day with a coffee cup in my hand.  I start out my day with a couple of cups and by 3 PM I am starting to wilt and looking for another cup of coffee to fuel the rest of my day.  Sometimes I am at home when that 3 PM slump hits but sometimes I am out running errands and nowhere near my beloved coffee pot.  On days like that, I often need to stop by the closest coffee supply and fill up.  Isn't it … [Read more...]
