A Busy Mom's Guide To Feeding A Family

Being a mom is a full-time job at the best of times. It’s your responsibility to get your children up and ready for school. It also falls on you to keep them happy when they’re home! If you have a job as well, you won’t have much time on your hands. With all this going on, how can you find a chance to cook healthy meals for your family? In truth, there’s no easy fix. Finding time in the kitchen is never easy. Even so, there are a few things you can do to ensure your family is getting the fresh meals they deserve!


Do you find you put off cooking because you hate trawling through recipe books? If you don’t have much time, a pile of recipes can be a daunting concept. The best way around the problem is to develop a filing system that works. Investing in a recipe file, or finding some way to mark your favorites, will mean they’re easy to find. A practical system may take a while to devise, but it’s worth the initial effort. Looking through every recipe book will be a thing of the past once you’ve taken this step! Even a filing system involves some maneuvering, though. If you want to eliminate your recipe books altogether, it might be worth finding out about the best recipe app. With the help of an app, you can access your favorite recipes at the click of a button. Even better, you’ll have them with you wherever you go. Why not get into the habit of planning your meals on your daily commute?


Another lifesaver for busy moms is batch cooking. Not all recipes will suit this method, so be careful which meals you pick for the week. If you choose the right recipe, you’ll be able to double the recipe and keep portions in the fridge. For most meals, three days is the longest time you can keep them. Using this method, you could get away with cooking three meals a week, instead of seven. Before you embark on this process, consider your family’s tastes. If they don’t like eating the same thing twice in a row, this may not work! If they’re not fussy, though, this could save you a lot of time!


We would all like to provide our family with healthy meals. Sometimes, though, that’s not practical. That’s why it’s always useful to have some quick meal options in the freezer. Frozen food isn’t ideal every day, but it’s not going to kill your kids to eat frozen now and again. If you have a busy week coming, stock your freezer. This will save you having to worry. All you’ll need to do is stick the meal in the oven! When choosing your options, consider the healthiest food possible. It’s possible to eat healthy, even from the freezer. Avoid fatty, sugary foods. Opt, instead, for the healthiest frozen options you can find.

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
