Best Crockpot Turkey Chili

Best Crockpot Turkey Chili Last week we were hit with a massive winter storm in NYC; flights were canceled, school was out (which is a good/bad thing depending on if the kids get a long), and two-inches of snow poured down every hour. Yes, two hours! Crazy right? It was gorgeous to look at– from my window. Now, we can handle snow, we’re New Yorker’s we can handle anything, but…

Starbuck’s Harry Potter Secret Menu

Christmas Tree Farm

Christmas Tree Farm Another year and we have yet to break our yearly Christmas tradition hunting our tree down at Santa’s Christmas Tree Farm out in Long Island. When we go looking for a tree we walk for a good 25 to 30 minutes up and down– some are still growing, others are too tall, some aren’t full and some just don’t speak to us. Yes, inanimate objects speak to…

Knock Out the Flu

*This post “Knock Out the Flu” is sponsored by K-mart. However, all opinions are my own* We did back-to-school shopping for Ziana last month, but back-to-school doesn’t just mean getting the necessary supplies for your kid and making sure they get all their necessary shots, but it also means taking care of ourselves. There’s nothing worse when your child comes home sick from school over and over and over again.…
