Breakfast is the most important part of the morning routine. This Banana Berry Smoothie is a great idea to add to my routine on busy mornings. - Farmer's Wife Rambles

Breakfast is the most important part of the morning routine.  This Banana Berry Smoothie is a great idea to add to my routine, but it just doesn't seem like enough to satisfy myself or my kids until lunch.  As a busy mom, I don't have time for a lot of extra cooking in the morning, so when I was asked to test out the belVita Breakfast Yogurt Crunch biscuits, I knew I had found a match for our morning routine.

4 Ingredient Toffee Fruit Dip Recipe

Tantalizing Toffee Fruit Dip

This recipe was brought to you by my partnership with Hamilton Beach.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Ritz Drizzles

Chocolate Peanut Butter Ritz Drizzle

Chocolate Peanut Butter Ritz Drizzles I don't know about you but I love those ritz cracker sandwiches that are covered in chocolate but heaven knows I am a horrible dipper.  I can't dip a thing weather it's cake pops, ritz crackers or strawberries.  If practice makes perfect than I should be a saint because my lack of dipping doesn't keep me from trying.  However, that doesn't mean I don't look for easier ways to get that yummy goodness.  Hence we have Chocolate Peanut … [Read more...]

4 Quick Breakfast Foods That Can Be Eaten As You Walk Out The Door

Tortillas With Peanut Butter & Bananas make a quick breakfast food

Harvest is in full force and I admit to have been getting pretty lax around the house about cooking breakfast.

It has dairy in it so it should count right? I have been trying to get better about this because Corbin needs breakfast and Cory and I should set better examples. I have been working hard … [Read more...]
