Ghiradelli Brownies- These Brownies are “The Truth”!

Ghiradelli double chocolate brownie

If you haven’t tried Ghiradelli’s brownies yet, you simply must.

They are fabulous.  I live in a house full of choc-a-holics and while I wasn’t always a choc-o-holic, I have blessedly been converted into one.

I wasn’t always a raving lunatic chocolate lover.  In fact, growing up, the only chocolates we would ever have were See’s chocolates and that, only once a year for the Easter holiday.

But my husband truly believes that loving chocolate is in his genes.  He likes brownies, but his one true love has always been home-made Nestle Toll [...]

The Family Camping Trip- Is it a lost art?

I have to admit, when my husband came to me with the idea of buying a used RV, I was less than thrilled at first.

I didn’t grow up going on camping trips with my family and it was all really alien to me.  Mind you, I had gone on the odd tent camping trip here and there and I really enjoyed them.

But when I thought about taking family vacations, my thoughts seemed to turn more to sun kissed beaches, amusement parks and lovely hotel rooms with really fluffy pillows.

Camping made me think of the two things I dreaded most.  No beds and no showers.

Let me share with you how my husband eventually persuaded me into his way of thinking.

Deceptively Delicious: Parents, your veggie problem may be solved.

Like a lot of parents, I have a veggie problem.   That is, my kids have a veggie problem.  They refuse to eat them.

It started the moment I introduced fruit to them as babies.  They loved their pureed peas, carrots and broccoli, but the moment I introduced fruit to them, it was all over.

And it’s been an uphill battle ever since.

Every night at dinner, it’s the same thing, cheering them on, cajoling, begging, bribing.  It’s enough to make me pull my hair out.

Dinner should be a pleasant experience and I want to leave my kids with happy memories of dinner times together.

So that is why, when I came across this book titled [...]

See’s Candies: More than just a box of chocolates-it’s a box of memories

See’s Soft Center chocolates

Growing up, buying See’s candies was always a treat.  One mostly saved for Easter or another such special holiday.

Even as a child, I knew that their chocolates were special and I was always really excited when my family would buy a box to share.

They were no less special as I grew older and started dating my  husband, who would buy them for me on Valentine’s Day.

You see, he also grew up with See’s chocolates being a special treat for his family as well and so was very familiar with how special they are.

A Long History
