Thursday Tidbits

Have you checked out Mom Central lately? I'm always finding out about new products and interesting websites through them.

One such new product is Kellogg's Eggo Bake Shop Twists. We tried both the apple and strawberry flavors. By we I mean Lucas and I, because of course there is wheat in the pastries so I couldn't give Kayla any. I'm sure she would have liked them though (and we tried them after she was in school, so as not to eat in front of her.)

The Eggo Bake Shop Twists are the first Kellogg's microwaveable pastry that combines soft, pull-apart dough sprinkled with sugar crystals and delicious strawberry or apple filling made with real fruit.

These only took 25 seconds to microwave (and 2 minutes to sit) and were melt-in-your mouth yummy. Lucas and I enjoyed these for a morning snack.

An interesting website I found out about is Hidden Valley Veggie Adventure Game. Hidden Valley created this free online game site, geared towards younger kids, to encourage them to become more interested in veggies.

Veggie Adventures engages families in a three-part vegetable adventure that begins with growing vegetables on the farm and ends with serving and sharing vegetables with friends. Along with fun and easy game-play, Veggie Adventures provides players with great tips and vegetable facts meant to be transplanted outside of the gaming experience.

Kayla has enjoyed playing this with me and she gets a kick out of growing the veggies on the farm; and it does get her and I talking more about vegetables, where they come from, and how good they taste.
I'm always on the lookout for a good website with easy recipes; I get bored of making the same meals over and over.

Making Life Better from Unilever, features delicious recipes, affordable meal ideas and tips that stretch your budget and save you time. They don't just have recipes on the site either - there are categories for beauty & style, home & family, and vitality & wellness among others. I definitely like the budget recipe section - who couldn't use that during these times? The Peach Melba Dessert looks very tempting right now! They have a lot of drink recipes too and Caribbean Tea Splash is next on my to-make list!
Then I recently found out about New Parent - it's a very informative site where you can connect with other parents, get expert advice for pregnancy and parenting questions, win free products, and shop for maternity, baby and toddler essentials. They also offer useful information like: coupons, recalls, recipes and much more!

You are a wealth of knowledge, thanks for all the info and great sites to visit. Your wonderful. I have 2 step kids that I raise full time with my husband and they weren't brought up on very healthy food so I am trying to slowly integrate good but healthy food for them so thanks for the info.
