PostHeaderIcon Wizard Of Oz LIVE on stage! Enter to WIN 4 Tickets

The Wizard of Oz_Dorothy and Friends (Adam Jepsen, Cassie Okenka, Dusty ...
One of the hardest questions people as me is, “What is your favorite movie?”. I am such a movie buff that it’s so hard to answer. In the end, I always go with The Wizard Of Oz. Seriously, how can you not love such an amazing classic? I have so many memories of watching this movie, as a child. Let’s be honest here, I have a lot of adult memories watching this movie too!

Getting the chance to see it LIVE on stage is such an amazing treat for me. It’s a piece of history, and my youth, that I can share with my children too. I am not sure how Royal will take it, but I know Spencer is going to love it. I am so excited! I saw WICKED many, many years ago, on stage, and that opened up this story so much! I actually love the Wicked Witch now ;)

Do you know what else I am excited about? Giving YOU the chance to earn 4 tickets for your family to see it too!! Your tickets will be for the November 25th at 7:30 pm show! Keep reading to see how to enter!

PostHeaderIcon It’s National Pasta Month………… says the Italian girl

Cucina Antica National Pasta MonthWho am I kidding? Being Italian means that EVERY MONTH is National Pasta Month, but for everyone else, this happens in October. You really don’t know what you are missing though. Along with my family, Cucina Antica is celebrating National Pasta Month throughout the month with delicious, authentic Italian recipes. What better time to try new recipes?? By adding artisan ingredients, like Cucina Antica cooking sauces, you are choosing  a better-for- you option that is full of authentic flavor!!

I have tried a lot of sauces in my, years but, Cucina Antica cooking sauces are made with imported Italian San Marzano tomatoes, no artificial preservatives, lower sodium, no added sugar, no added water, gluten-free and no tomato paste. WHAT? Did your taste buds just perk up? Cucina Antica provides at-home chefs products made through an artisanal production method that allows consumers to cook the sauces without losing any flavor. Guess what else? They are one of few sauces that are non-GMO verified!

Give me red tomato gravy and I can make just about anything with it. Pumpkin on the other hand, not really something I have worked with before. But, I was determined I was going to figure out something to make with it! I would definitely have to ponder this one for a few more days.

PostHeaderIcon Ball Jam and Jelly Maker: Apple Jelly #Recipe

Ball® Freshtech Automatic Jam & Jelly Maker

Ball Jam and Jelly Maker 2When I first started canning, I knew that I was going to run right to the Ball Fresh Preserving website in hopes to find some help. I wanted to make jam and jelly so, where else would I go? After all, the Ball brand is the most well known for all things canning!

I tried the making jelly on the stove and let’s just say it was a bit of a nightmare. This was probably due to the fact that I had kids trying to talk to me and I couldn’t give it my full attention. Such is mom life, right?

While poking around on the Ball website, I came across something called a Ball® Freshtech Automatic Jam & Jelly Maker. Say what?! Automatic you say? Shut up and take my money! I was so excited and went on to read more about it. There had to be some catch. I couldn’t be that easy and I need to know more before I spend $90 on it!

Here is what Ball says about this machine: Read the rest of this entry »
