Spicy Cauliflower ‘Potato’ Salad

This is a sponsored post for Colman’s. All opinions are 100% my own. Cauliflower seems to be all the rage lately, and I have totally jumped on the bandwagon! I use cauliflower in place of rice and potatoes all the time. I even recently made a cauliflower ‘hummus’. It was delicious, and surprisingly, very similar to regular hummus! With summer just around the corner, I am now thinking about how to use cauliflower in my favorite summer salads. It’s such a versatile vegetable that can be used so many ways. I can’t wait to experiment with it some more and see what other fun recipes I can come up with. I have always loved potato salad, but my husband and {CONTINUE READING…}

Premier Protein CLEAR for Busy Moms

HAVE YOU TRIED PREMIER PROTEIN CLEAR YET? Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions are 100% my own. Being a stay-at-home Mom to a 2 year old and an almost 4 year old keeps me incredibly busy. Some days I feel like all I do is pick up messes, break up fights, change diapers and get my kids food. I sit down in my chair, and three seconds later, one of them needs something else from me. I’m on the go all day long, and often times, it’s hard to find a quiet moment to myself, where I can just relax and regain some energy. Finding time to fix myself something to eat is another challenge I face a lot. {CONTINUE READING…}

Plan for Your Family’s Financial Future with Prudential

This is a sponsored post for SheSpeaks/Prudential. Four years ago, I quit my full-time job as a paralegal to become a stay-at-home Mom. It was the first time in my adult life that I was not earning a paycheck. Instead, I was relying solely on my husband’s income. Not having any income of my own, or any money in savings, made me feel very uncomfortable and vulnerable. If anything had happened to my husband’s income during that time, I don’t know what I would have done. After we added a second child to our family and purchased our first home, I realized it was time for me to get serious about planning for the future. While I don’t like to {CONTINUE READING…}
