***We received complimentary passes to Hersheypark Christmas Candylane all opinions are 100% my own***

For as many years as I can remember my family and I visited Hershey Park Christmas Candylane. From going with my parents to going with my boyfriend, then fiancee then-husband, to going with my little family. We have look forward to the Hershey Christmas spectacular that is Hersheypark Christmas Candylane.  

The park is always decked out in its finest Christmas decorations, and it really fees festive. It is such a nice time to visit, the weather is a bit chilly (we do not mind, it is better than sweating in the summer)  but there are plenty of shops to jump in to warm up and find some great Hershey souvenirs. We hope to visit the park for years to come. My daughter is growing up fast, but she still lights up like a little kid when visiting Hersheypark, and I hope that never changes. Be sure to take your family to visit Hersheypark Christmas Candyland, the park is open on select days from November 15th, 2019 through January 1st, 2020.

June is National Dairy month, celebrate with Hood® Cottage Cheese! Try some yummy Cinnamon Vanilla Berry Cottage Cheese Toast #Recipe!

This post is sponsored by The National Frozen & Refrigerated Foods Association (NFRA). All opinions are my own. For more inspiration during #JuneDairyMonth, be sure to check out delicious ideas from NFRA at #JDM2019

Did you know that June is National Dairy Month? I have to admit I had never heard of such a thing! But it is a pretty cool time to enjoy all that is dairy, I am surely up to a month celebrating some of my favorite food, aren't you? I can go on and on about my love of all things dairy... but instead, I will tell you a bit more about one of my favorite dairy items, cottage cheese! Are you a big cottage cheese fan like I am? It is great for breakfast, lunch or dinner or a snack. You can use it in all sorts of recipes. 
I recently had the chance to celebrate National Dairy Month, by coming up with a favorite recipe using cottage cheese. Cottage cheese is packed with protein, Hood® Country Style Cottage Cheese is rich, creamy and delicious. You can enjoy it in so many ways, as a topping, a dip, an ingredient or as a healthy snack. I wanted a recipe that did not mask the flavor of the cottage cheese, a recipe that really let the cheese shine. 

When I was a child I remember coming home from school and I was famished, as my mother made dinner I would ask for a snack. My mother would make me cottage cheese on toast, and I loved it. My favorite version of the treat my mom would make for me is a Cinnamon Vanilla Berry Cottage Cheese Toast. It was slightly sweet, and very creamy and really was enjoyable. 

Now I have a daughter and she too comes home looking for a snack, when dinner's not ready for a good bit. I enjoy making this quick and simple snack that my mom would make for me as a child, and my daughter loves the toast as much as I did.  I just love that I get to share something I enjoyed so much as a child with my child, and I hope one day (in the far future) she will share this recipe with her children.  I feel good about giving her this snack because every Hood® product boasts a rich and creamy texture for a tasty snack that’s filled with protein. Check out the super easy recipe, and make this treat for your family.

Celebrate National Egg Month by making Scrambled Egg Muffins, with Pete and Gerry's Organic Eggs! #Recipe

Did you know that May is National Egg Month? Yes May is the best month to enjoy all of your favorite incredible egg recipes! Is your favorite egg dish, breakfast lunch or dinner option? 

I have teamed up with Pete and Gerry's Organic Eggs, to make a great egg dish a recipe that draws attention to all of the amazing nutritional benefits of eggs!... But before we go into that did you know the FDA has said that organic eggs are not in the guidelines on what is deemed healthy?

Can you believe it?  Pete and Gerry's Organic Eggs as a part of the Eggs Are Healthy campaign petitioned the FDA to update its guidelines around what can be deemed ‘healthy’ – spoiler organic eggs can’t but sugary cereal can. I really did not believe what I read, sugary cereals and toaster pastries... Healthy? What?
