True Love Lives On – Planters Cheez Balls Return!

This post contains affiliate links. Shut. The. Door. This had better not be a joke. It best not be a trick. And it's too early for an April Fool's Joke. So it must be true. Yes indeed, Planters is bringing back the greatest snack of all time: Planters Cheez Balls! For those of you born after the '90s, you are in for the most incredible treat. I'm a big fan of cheese balls. Like, my veins bleed orange powder kind of fan. And while some cheese balls are certainly a lot better than others, nothing, as in nothing, compares to Planters Cheez Balls. What makes them so good I think, is the fact they ...

Edible Chocolate Chip Cookie Bowls

Happy New Year, everyone! As we kick off another beginning, I thought I'd share with you how we ended last year in style. My wife and I are back on the health train, starting 2018 fresh with a new outlook on eating right and exercising. But we made sure to splurge as we said goodbye to 2017. Allie's always making the most amazing looking (and tasting!) desserts. I don't know if she'll ever top my Fozzie Bear birthday cake, but she came up with a brilliant idea that was the hit of our New Year's Eve party. I'm talking about Edible Chocolate Chip Cookie Bowls! These are fairly easy to make, insanely ...

Win a Case of Chomperz Seaweed Snacks ($40 value)

I recently shared my latest food addiction with you guys: the seaweed snacks called Chomperz! Well, now I'm putting my money where my mouth is! Well, technically, it's not my money.

I Just Can’t Stop Eating These Seaweed Snacks Called Chomperz

When it comes to healthy snacks, I'll usually munch on some homemade Kale Chips. They're good and crunchy, but kind of messy and take a long time to make in the oven. Recently, though, I discovered a bunch of seaweed snacks that I simply cannot stop eating. I was walking the aisles of a local ShopRite supermarket when a cartoony shark caught my eye. A big fan of the Jabberjaw cartoon from decades ago (Nyuk, nyuk, nyuk!), this googly eyed shark was staring back at me on a bag of crunchy seaweed chips called Chomperz. I quickly checked the nutrition facts to make sure they weren't super fattening like most chips and ...

Barilla Gets in the Kitchen with This Dad for some Turkey Pepperoni Mostaccioli

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Barilla. The opinions and text are all mine. If you could sum up "Back to School" in just one word, most likely it'd be "chaos." Between the homework, the whining, the practices, the complaining, the crazy schedules that seem to need 26 hours in a day, I sometimes wonder if it was easier going through high school the first time. On top of all that, my wife and I both work. I usually don't get home until around 7 p.m. or so, and since she's home an hour or two earlier, she generally makes dinner for the family. But some nights ...

For this Gamer Dad, a Simple Cup of Coffee Changed the Parenting Game Forever

One of my favorite quotes of all time was penned by Oscar Wilde. "Life is too important to be taken seriously." Well, I think Oscar would be proud to know that I'm only aware of his quote because it was on the side of my favorite coffee mug. I try to live by those words in everything I do. Unfortunately, some things get serious real fast. Especially once you become a father. I've got two amazing boys. I think I've done a pretty good job of raising them so far. They can differentiate characters between the DC and Marvel Universes. They bleed pinstripes as all good Yankees fans should. And they appreciate the ...
