Oh, Look! They Make Candy Cane Oreos Now

You're probably aware of my Oreo fetish already. We searched high and low for Candy Corn Oreos last month and only succeeded in finally getting our hands on them thanks to my sister 2 hours north of us. Sadly, they were pretty disappointing. But the other day, oh yes, the other day at Target, I saw them. Candy Cane Oreos! Red and white creme inside of a chocolate Oreo cookie. My kids just shook their heads. They don't like mint. Although Jason does like Candy Canes. Go figure. So I just walked by the display and headed down the soup aisle to pick up a few cans. And then... well... I said ...

The Nomilicious Jell-O Pudding with Mix-Ins #Giveaway (Ends 11/14)

I've always loved Jell-O. Regular Jell-O. Jell-O pudding. Jell-O pudding pops. (Thank you, Mr. Cosby.) I mean, what's not to love? Growing up, my mom would make Jell-O all the time (the old fashioned way... on the stove!) when I was sick. Cherry and orange were my favorites and they always made me feel better. She'd also make chocolate or vanilla pudding for dessert quite often. So yeah, we grew up as a Jell-O house. Mmm... Jell-O house... Nowadays it's so easy to enjoy Jell-O in any form since they're pre-made and packaged. Just grab a cup from the refrigerated section and dive in. So easy and so good. And now, apparently there's ...

Kraft Homestyle Mac & Cheese Microwaveable Bowls #Giveaway (Ends 11/4)

Is there anyone on the planet who doesn't like mac and cheese? (Apologies to all you lactose-intolerant folks out there.) Next to chicken nuggets, mac & cheese is one of my kids' favorite meals. I think Ryan's blood must be fluorescent orange by now from all that cheesy powder he's ingested the past few years. He's soooo particular about his mac & cheese too. It has to be Kraft. And it has to be the normal straight macaroni. No wacky shapes for that kid. Recently at a Hasbro party, I was chatting with the PR folks from Hunter PR and found out that they work with Kraft. Well it didn't take me ...

$5 Gift Card to Arby’s – 5 Winners! (Ends 10/20)

I have a love/hate relationship with Arby's. I absolutely love their spicy curly fries and roast beef sandwiches. They're just so unbelievably good. But I hate, hate, hate that there isn't an Arby's near me! Up until about a year ago, there was an Arby's in the food court at our local mammoth mall. Life was good. Then it shut down. Life was bad. I'm hoping the fast food chain will open up again soon in my area, but until then I'll have to settle for grabbing a roast beef and fries whenever I'm out of town on a road trip somewhere. It doesn't help that Arby's is pushing a huge new campaign ...

Magic Cookie Bars: Only the Greatest Thing You Will Ever Put In Your Mouth

I recently shared with you guys what I thought of those super-hard-to-find new limited-edition Candy Corn Oreos. Word on the street from most people I've talked is that they agree. The cookies are good but nothing super spectacular. In other words... Hey, Nabisco! Next time give it WAY more candy corn flavor! What did surprise me, though, was that I was flooded with questions from my readers and friends asking me for the recipe to those super nummy Magic Cookie Bars. My mom's made these cookies for me since I was a kid, and they've always been my favorite. The original recipe (which mom points out was from Borden Eagle Brand Sweetened ...

Brace Yourself for the Aporkalypse: A Bacon Shortage is Coming

I have some horrific news to share. No, it's not about politics. Nor disease. Nor blind referees who can't make a correct call in a football game to save their lives. No, this is much more serious. In fact, it's something tantamount to apocalyptic proportions. I'm not talking about the start of The Walking Dead's third season (which kicks off this Sunday!). No, I'm talking about bacon. Yes, bacon. Nature's perfect food. According to some key studies worldwide, we my friends, are on the verge of a Bacon Shortage! It seems that Britain's National Pig Association has just announced that all of Europe's main pig-producing countries are seeing a decrease in the size of their herds. ...
