Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie

Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie

Smoothies. We love them. You can easily hide fill them with healthy ingredients and they are a quick on-the-go option for meals. I recently started using the Hamilton Beach Smoothie Smart blender, and I love that it has a smoothie button to help take the guess work out of blending these yummy creations.  For me, that means it’s really easy for my 9 and 13 year old boys to make their own smoothies. This chocolate peanut butter banana smoothie is Michael’s favorite. We…

Microsoft Office In The Cloud? Yes! And A Microsoft Office Giveaway

I was provided with a copy of Microsoft Office 365 in exchange for this review and giveaway. All opinions, as always, are my own.  Microsoft Word. Excel. Powerpoint. You know these names, right?

Microsoft Office 365 has upped their game by adding cloud access and applications such as OneNote:…

Creamy Caramel Iced Coffee Popsicles

Creamy Caramel Iced Coffee Popsicles

It’s that time of year in Arizona– time when everything tastes better frozen. Yes, everything. I can’t imagine turning the coffee maker on and drinking hot coffee, so I decided to turn my morning coffee into a popsicle! As I mentioned, it’s too hot for me to turn on the coffee maker. Since I’m just making a quick cup to turn into iced coffee, I used the Melitta Pour-Over Brewing Cone.  This would also be great for someone who is…

Seattle's Best Mega Mocha Frozen Coffee Blends

Double Chocolate Blended Coffee Recipe With Seattle’s Best Frozen Coffee Blends

  My favorite thing about my kitchen is the coffee bar my husband made me last fall. It holds my Keurig on one side and my Nespresso on the other. Now, though, I’m adding something new to our coffee bar. My Vitamix now resides on my coffee bar because that’s where we have been making our Seattle’s Best Frozen Coffee. Michael is very, very fond of it. The frozen coffee, not the blender.  After taste testing the Frozen Coffee Blends,…
