Our house is full of candy fans, but I'll be honest I haven't had Mike and Ike candies since I was a young kid. However I did notice that for a while at the store you could buy a box of Mike's (with Ike's name scribbled out) or Ike's (with Mike's name scribbled out). It seems the pair had a falling out and we had to suffer! But luckily for us the pair are back together, and you can find a while selection of Mike and Ike candies at the store again!
Our family gets a little silly around the holidays. We like to have fun, and now we have a lot of fun choosing a new theme for the holiday coming up! We've done Pirate's Thanksgiving, Mustache Easter, and had a train themed birthday for Goonie. So of course, Father's day had to be something fun - something we could all enjoy! This year we decided to have a Father's Day Luau!
The kids are out of school, and now it's time to kick back and enjoy a drink. You remember those dog days of summer that you just enjoyed the sun, playing in the sprinkler or laying out chatting with friends? Now they may be filled with chasing kids, family functions or your own parties you're hosting and on occasion you may need a drink to take along with you!
Earlier this spring I reviewed the Vino2Go and the VinoCaddy which are perfect accessories for your on the go summer parties, or just lounging in your yard. But the designers at The Product Farm have been busy! Not only did they just release the Vino2Go XL, for when
Finding a good recipe for a homemade gluten free bread has always been hard for me. I have a few store brands I'll pick up when I want a sandwich but sometimes you just want that warm fresh bread. I found a recipe online for a 5 ingredient no-knead peasant bread and had to try it, being gluten free it does add a few ingredients but it was worth a shot. The resulting bread wasn't the prettiest, but was warm and yummy.

June is National Dairy month! The Michigan Dairy News Bureau wants to make sure my readers get enough dairy in their diet and you can do it easily by making small changes. With the last giveaway I did for them (now closed) we learned that milk is a much better drink for you than most of the other options.
Dairy is something you can enjoy all day! It's not just a glass of milk, or something to be put in your cereal. I personally use it a lot in cooking, but you can also use your yogurt to make great smoothies that will not only give you energy but are a delicious treat as well!

Earlier this week I did a post on ways to find out where your food comes from and a way to track it from the codes on your packaging. But what about where it comes from as far back as the farm? I'll admit it - I'm a city girl, I know there are farms out there but I don't usually visit them.

Over the weekend I went to my favorite Farmer's Market - Eastern Market. I go about every other week to stock upon goodies for recipes and things to stand in until my garden starts producing. Fruits, Veggies, fresh goat cheese and even a trip to the butcher! It was a great trip and I scored big on some fresh tomatoes - a farmer was selling flats of them (15 lbs each) for only $8. I grabbed two with the intention of making more ketchup, but realized quickly I'm out of a lot of other tomato based basics!
Since 2009 Michigan Farms have opened their doors to over 40,000 children and adults and not only fed them, but provided them with knowledge of where their food is coming from.
Breakfast on the farm events are free and are happening throughout Michigan at five farms from June through September. You can attend for free and learn about the farming
