Pirate’s Booty: A Giveaway

We discovered Pirate’s Booty about ten years ago as a baby-friendly snack that the whole family enjoyed. Now, it’s not designed for babies, but its crunchy texture was one that we all loved and one that a baby could easily eat. It was a great alternative to chips, pretzels, or popcorn that would require me […]

Food Traditions and Holiday Memories

Isn’t it funny how important food, and specifically holiday recipes, can be to our memories of special events? On Sunday, we headed to my parents’ for a small family reunion. Lil’ smokies and See’s candy were present! Good thing as they are so much a part of our family’s traditions. Another key figure at our […]

Congrats to casil3229 who is the winner of this giveaway! I grew up on Campbell’s Chicken Noodle Soup. My dad would stock up major bigtime every time there was a sale.

Fantastic Sam’s: A Review and a Giveaway

Years and years ago, like six kids ago, I used to get my hair done at a very froofy salon in Santa Barbara. Back then I paid about $45 every six weeks or so to get coiffed and primped. We lived in an affluent community and we were dinks, so why not? Then we moved […]

Review of HP Photosmart Premium with Touch Smart Web

The handsome guests I took with me. Today I attended an HP Blogger Event at a San Diego County movie theatre. The Hewlett-Packard team treated their guests to a complementary movie (with popcorn!) as well as a hands-on demonstration of the HP Photosmart Premium with Touchsmart Web. In the last 13 years since FishPapa and […]
