More For Mom- A Book Review


As moms, I think we spend a lot of our time worried over whether or not we are doing this parenting thing right. I started this blog because at the time, my oldest was difficult to manage at home and at school and I worried that maybe it had something to do with me.

Being in a Moms group, helped me to see that God chose me to be my little one's mother and that many of the moms felt the same things that I did with my little one.

It's a question that resounds around the world and many books have been written to tell you how to be the best parent that you can be with tactics on how to raise your child. Some may be very inspirational and others, just pure doo doo.

So when I was given the opportunity to review a book that wasn't about parenting, but about giving ME more, I couldn't wait to read it.

Last Minute Father's Day Gifts


Can you believe that it's almost Father's Day?

My youngest celebrate's his birthday in June, and so Father's Day is always in the back of my mind because I'm usually busy planning something for my son's special day.

I really should remember to focus on both- especially if I'm going to try to write a Father's Day related post.

However, as a last minute person, would I really be myself if I didn't also write this post last minute?

ADHD-Succeeding is a Big Deal


My son got awarded at an honor awards ceremony, yesterday. It was very special and emotional for me.

You may be thinking, "So what? Big deal! Kids make honors all the time." You'd be right, kids do make it all the time, but for us, this was a BIG DEAL!

This is the first time that he has been honored for his school work. Last year, he was so far behind in school, but because he had behavior issues, probably because he couldn't read or write well and he was frustrated, we didn't know he was so far behind.

15 Things to Do With Your Kids This Summer


I've been a stay-at-home mom for five years now and one of the hardest things I've had to do is figure out things to do with my kids over the summer.

When they were younger, it was a little easier because we could just roam the backyard and they'd be fine.

Now that they're older, they want to rot their brains out with constant tablet time or watching tv. It can be so easy to let them do JUST that and there have been days when I allow it and then there are days when I'm bored or they're bored and things can get heated up and it's up to me to figure out different things to let my kids do because "Read a book" and "Do some chores" doesn't fill up their entertainment meter as long as we'd like for it to.

Using Silver Products to Help Mom Health


We're parents. We take care of all our little ones every day and our little ones can play and move and probably run a 5k with no problem because they are active.

Kids just have energy! So as moms and dads, our health is very important. If we are always sick or we are low on energy, parenting can sometimes be a chore. Lets face it, we don't get sick days off from being parents, either. It's very important for us to be healthy so we can raise our children to be the grownups we hope for them to be.

Soft Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies



I thought that I had eaten some great cookies, when I was growing up. My family would buy those soft bagged cookies from the store or purchase some cookie dough and we'd make it from that.

Honestly, I didn't know much about baking until I got married and so my cookies were always burnt or tasted funny.

Buffalo Chicken Dip


I don't really like to eat buffalo wings unless they are boneless and an appetizer that I don't have to cook. Buffalo sauce never really appealed to me until I had kids. Maybe it was because I had craved spicy foods during my pregnancy with my first born: Spicy foods and chocolate milk. I also developed a craving for Diet Coke- which is weird because before I was pregnant, I only drank Diet Pepsi, and it was also torture because I didn't want to drink soda/pop while I was pregnant.

I had never really given buffalo chicken dip a try until someone brought some in for a potluck at work. Then it became a favorite of mine for every potluck and we really took advantage of having them every last Friday of the month because that was also our one dress down day.

After I left work to stay home with my kids, I actually missed eating buffalo chicken dip, so I found a recipe and tried it out. I was so happy I did because it was SOOO easy to make.


Don't mind the scuffs in my table. We bought it when we only had ONE child.
Now we're waiting for them to grow up a little before we replace it. 

There are only five ingredients, which makes this so easy to make.

What you'll need:

2 cans of precooked chicken
3/4 cup of Buffalo Sauce- We like to use Frank's Red Hot Wings Buffalo Sauce

1 cup Ranch Dressing
2 Packages of cream cheese
2 cups cheddar cheese- We like to buy the bricks and shred them, but the kind that are shredded and bagged are fine, too.

Instructions

  • Preheat oven at 400 degrees.
  • Soften Cream cheese by leaving it out 30 minutes before you begin or remove wrapper and microwave it in a microwave safe bowl or plate. 
  • In a mixing bowl, add chicken, cream cheese, buffalo sauce, ranch dressing, and cup of cheese.
  • Combine the mixture until mixture appears smooth. 
  • Add mixture to an oven safe pie plate or dip plate/pan.

  • Sprinkle remaining cheese over the mixture.
  • Bake for 20 minutes or until cheese starts to brown. 


  • Wait until dip has cooled to a nice warm temperature before eating.

You can use whatever you like to use for dipping. 

We like to use tortilla chips and cucumbers. Others use chicken crackers and celery.





Conclusion


As you can see, it's very easy to make this recipe and what's even better, is that if you want to bring this to a potluck, you can just throw these all into a slow cooker and after being in it on low, you'll be able to mix it easily and just keep it on warm throughout the day. 

It's super easy and very convertible.

I hope you enjoy this recipe, today and don't forget to check out our recipe tab for more!

Hello! My name is Brittany and I'm a writer, obviously. As a stay-at-home mom, there are many things that I have to figure out in order to run a house that appears to be more sane than insane. It's not easy to be a parent and I hope that this blog is able to encourage other moms out there to live life happily and to understand that there can be mishaps along the way, but those mishaps don't define you and anything can be overcome with perseverance and will.
