September 2, 2014 By · No Comments

Disclosure: This is a paid post, but all opinions are my own.
Now that school is back in session many parents are trying to figure out what to make for dinner. Chances are some of you have kids in sports or some other after school activity and you are getting home late and either don’t feel like making some long drawn out meal or you just don’t have the time. I’ve taken the liberty of going through some recipes and found my favorite breakfast meals you can make for dinner. I mean after all who doesn’t like to do a backwards type of day. I can’t even tell you how many times we have had pancakes or french toast for dinner, heck there have been times when the kids asked just to have cereal.

In the desert when it is hot, which lately has been almost ALL THE TIME, I haven’t wanted to cook. I say what do you want for dinner and I hear someone say “Frenchtoast Casserole,” or “Breakfast.” If I am actually home during the day I can prep a casserole dish for later and let the kids finish it off….the older ones that is. BalletGirl, aka Katerina, loves make the frenchtoast casserole. Here are a few quick (and not so quick) ideas, feel free to explore my collections at Foodie.com and make some of your own collections. What are some of your favorite breakfast meals you eat at dinner?

10 Summer Dessert to Make Your Mouth Water

August 1, 2014 By · No Comments
Partnered post with Glam Media.

This has been a great summer, minus the heat, heat is one thing I can do without and I do believe my kids can agree with me on that. Since it has been such a HOT summer with no AC in my car we do not go far, which means we had to think of a way to make our summer fun and stay indoors. We decided we would craft more and spend time creating and trying out new dishes. Here are a great bunch of easy desserts we have tried and will be trying in the next few week. One of which I couldn’t really find but part of it is in there so I’ll add it here (I actually found this through Facebook and later we saw it on Pinterest)

Check out Desserts of Summer

Have you tried any of the summer desserts listed above? If so, which ones do you like? I want to try as many easy ones as possible and post them on here for ya’ll to see how they turned out for us. Tomorrow is BabyGirl’s 11th Birthday and earlier this year she told me she wanted an Ice Cream Cake so I will be using the one provided in the slideshow above, course with 104′ temps I’m not sure how long it’ll stay in ice cream form. I love how the internet has made it so easy for those of us that didn’t really know how to cook to be able to whip something up at a moment’s notice.

How To Make a T-Shirt Tote by Kat

July 25, 2014 By · 5 Comments

I guess it is time I formally introduce you to someone, she’s my oldest daughter…BalletGirl (age 14)…but for those of us that know her outside the blogging world we call her Katerina. She’s been working on making crafts and meals through Pinterest all summer long, in fact she made a bucket list of all the crafts/recipes she wanted to try out. Recently I saw how crafty she was getting and asked her if she would like to have a small column on my blog, “The Life of a Home Mom” and she was so excited. Oh I forgot to tell you, she was already a step ahead of me, she’s been taking pics of the stuff she does step-by-step and quickly wrote up a how-to piece for me. So let me welcome all of you to ……Kat’s Krafts. Fotor0725165212

#SparkleWithDasani Water Review

July 18, 2014 By · No Comments

Disclosure: This is a paid post, however with the summer heat I thought you’d like to learn a bit about a sparkling water that are hitting the store shelves near you. 

As many of you know we live in the Mojave Desert which means we are constantly needing to drink even more water than before, sometimes the kids hate drinking plain water. Did you know you can sparkle up the taste with Dasani now? That’s right now Dasani is sparkling things up and adding some flavor to their waters but not only that they also come in cans. My kids instantly wanted to try these drinks when they came in the mail because they thought they were new sodas. The apple and berry seemed to be more of a hit, they didn’t really care for the lemon or lime. How do you get your kids to drink water? While I know this isn’t completely water this does add a bit of fizz to their plain waters and is better than coke. Oh the best part is there are NO calories so if you are watching your figure this summer or just trying to count calories this is a great drink for you.


What makes you sparkle? Answer this and maybe even enter the #SparkleWithDasani giveaway for a chance to win. My kids are what makes me sparkle…that and getting all dressed up. Dressing up is not something I do on a daily/weekly basis so when I do I definitely sparkle. Do you? I’d love to hear what makes you sparkle.

Would you like to win this fantastic trip to a resort and spa? The Sparkling Getaway to Florida including airfare, hotel, and spa treatments for 4!  A dream come true for many right?  Okay now go find a picture of something that makes you Sparkle and tweet about it with the hashtag #SparkleWithDASANI with @dasaniwater (so they see it)  and you could be the winner of this trip. Oh if you win I’d love to hear about it. Okay I’m off to go tweet because I think I totally deserve a drip like this.
