Win Monopoly Millionaire – Say Goodbye to Bankruptcy

Hershey's Monopoly. Star Wars Monopoly. Nintendo Monopoly. At this point, there's got to be about a million different versions of Monopoly. Okay, I may be off by a few hundred or so, but the latest version of Uncle Moneybags' favorite game will have you seeing millions. As I mentioned in my previous Monopoly zAPPed edition, my son Jason is a Monopoly Addict. We have six or seven editions in our house at this point, so what's one more, right? Hasbro's latest, Monopoly Millionaire, was available for review, so of course I tossed my hat in the ring. Jason couldn't wait to dive in and play and immediately started ripping open the packs ...

Why Yes, That is a S’more Inside That Chocolate Chip Cookie!

The above mouth-watering image has been flying all over my Facebook stream today. I originally found it on Google+ I think and just did some heavy research (i.e. Google Image Search) to find the originator. Check out Smells Like Home's Giant S'mores Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies for full details and the recipe. I'll just be over here with a life-size glass of milk, just waiting to taste test. Awwwwwwwwww... yeah!

Win a Chuck E. Cheese’s Guest Pass – Free Pizza, Drinks and 30 Tokens

I can't recall the first time I went to Chuck E. Cheese's,but my kids were crazy small. I remember appreciating the younger area they had with a cute climbing/interactive thing, as well as babyish video games. What always killed me though, were the tubes. You know, the long, interconnected play tubes that hung from the ceiling and kids could climb up and run/climb around them. Yeah, those were awful for one big reason... I'd always climb up myself and it just killed my knees! Nowadays, my kids are a bit older and therefore not only play more grown-up games, but are actually pretty good at them. If you've never been to a Chuck ...

My Latest Health Obsession: Dry Roasted Edamame

My wife and I are on a big health kick. We're doing the Jillian Michaels Body Revolution almost every day. (Or as I like to call it, the "Move my lazy ass around on the floor slowly while I sweat profusely and curse like a sailor" program.) She's also doing her best to cook healthy meals and find all sorts of healthy snacks for us. Yeah, my wife's pretty darn awesome. Except when she makes salmon. I just hates salmon... Anyways, one of the snacks she recently found for me at a health food store was Dry Roasted Edamame. It's really tough for us to find good trail mix, granola bars, ...

Bear With Me – Please Vote for Animals Asia

My friend Morgan (my wife's college buddy) has also been a huge animal lover. In her California home, she's pretty much running her own animal shelter with a dog and probably 19 cats at this point (give or take a dozen or so). She currently works for Animals Asia, an organization I had never even heard of before and one that I honestly hopes puts itself out of business. The organization spearheads a number of wonderful initiatives, the top one being to crack down on China's bear farming. Yes, you read that correctly. Bear farming. Hundreds of Moon Bears suffer at the hands of cruel farmers keeping them locked up in ridiculously small cages ...
