Hot Pocket Bites Are Such A Fun Snack

Summer is here and the kids are home all day long and every couple hours all I hear is “Can I have a snack” over and over again. I do’t like to give my kids a lot of sugar so I opt for something healthy like fruit or something very simple to make.

Hot Pockets now come in Bites, which is the perfect alternative for snack time.


Hot Pocket Bites come in three different varieties Ham and Cheese, Cheese Pizza, and Pepperoni Pizza.

** We tried all 3 varieties and loved them, even my daughter who hates mozzarella cheese ate the pepperoni bites and liked them. They are so easy to make just put on a plate and microwave for about 2 minutes and you have the perfect snack.
My kids kept asking for more, we went through 3 bags in one day, although the bags are a bit small. My favorite would had to be the ham and cheese, it was so good and tasted like you were eating a fresh off the grill Ham and cheese sandwich.



You can find Hat Pocket Bites in the grocery section of local retailers for $2.99.

Always Discreet Is Now At Target

Always Discreet is a thin pad for everyday use. As a mom of three I suffer from bladder leakage. It happens when I least expect it, when i am working out or as simple as when I sneeze.

Always Discreet is great because it’s thin and doesn’t feel like a regular pad like when you are on menstrual cycles. It’s made a big difference in my life, I would get so embarrassed when I would leak and you could tell. I can work out now, runs after my kids and not have to worry about anything.


Discreet liners- absorbs 2x more than you need

Discreet Pads- Up to 40% thinner and absorb 2x more than you need.

Discreet underwear- Dual leakguard barriers help prevent leaks where they happen most.

New Limoncello From Stop and Shop Giveaway 8/2

Stop and Shop grocery stores have introduced a new line of foods and drinks called Limoncello. The line features baked goods, juice, cookies, and so much more.


Limoncello is a flavor authentically derived from Italy, where the Sorrento lemon is cultivated for its sweet and tangy flavor. Stop & Shop has harnessed that flavor and infused it into more than 30 products found throughout the store in both the fresh and non-perishable departments.

You can incorporate Stop & Shop’s uniquely sweet Limoncello creations into one’s meal time, snack time or enjoy anytime. Add Limoncello olive oil to grilled vegetables, Limoncello pesto to pasta, sweeten up morning toast with Limoncello marmalade or end a cook-out with one of the varieties of Limoncello cookies, cakes or ice cream.


*** I absolutely love their Limoncello line, and have tried so much from it. My husband thinks I am a bit crazy for it, but it is so good. I have tried the lemonade, ice cream sandwiches, cookies, lemon covered almonds, and even lemon flavored canoli.

I think my favorite was the canoli, it didn’t have any dairy in it, so my husband and son could eat it too. It was a great addition to our breakfast.

I am giving away a $25 gift card to Stop and Shop so one of my readers can try the Limoncello in store.

Making Quesadillas For the Kids #HormelFamily

Disclosure: I’ve partnered with Hormel Foods as part of the Hormel Foods Extended Family Blogger Program. Throughout the year I’ll be receiving product, coupons, giveaways and promotions. However, no payment was given or expected for posting about the program, and as always, all opinions given here are fully my own.

Now that the kids are home for the summer, I am looking for fun things to make during Lunch. The kids had lunches packed all year long so I want to be able to spice it up and cook for them.

My kids asked for something with melted cheese and I wanted to do something different than grilled cheese. I decided to make Quesadillas, and the kids loved them.

I used Herdez Tortilla
Monteray Jack cheese
a frying pan

Heat the pan to medium, and place tortilla shell in frying pan. Top with shredded cheese, then another tortilla shell. flip after 1 minute and check that the cheese is melted.

When done put on a plate and cut into 4 slices serve.


Have You made Quesadillas? What ingredients did you use?

First Time To Connecticut

We will be moving across the Long Island Sound to Connecticut soon, and decide to visit and see what neighborhoods are good. Our first stop was Yale University, since thats will be our main focus.


Yale is so big there is just so much to see. We didn’t stop and see much since we have plenty of time to do that in the future. I can’t wait to see the Peabody museum.

We traveled around the surrounding towns and fund a cute park right on the harbor.


I can’t wait to start this new adventure and share it with all of you!
