Celebrating Easter with kids means loading up a basket full of a bunch of cheap candy and toys. This is a situation where it is impossible to avoid imported junk, right? Wrong. (Did you really think we’d say right?! How long have we known each other?)
Today is National Spinach Day, so celebrate with a spinach pizza baked in an American made Lodge cast iron skillet….because everyone needs a reason to make pizza, right?!

This year the Easter Bunny will be filling the Easter baskets in my house with only American made treats. And not because I have declared so. My kiddos have. “Mommy, I hope the Easter Bunny knows to get us ‘Made in the USA’ things for our Easter basket,” said my 4 year old daughter when […]
My kiddos will agree that they LOVE pancakes. What they can’t agree on is the TYPE of pancake Mommy is going to make. Logan prefers his pancakes with fruit added- blueberry pancakes, banana pancakes, and pumpkin pancakes top his list. Sophie wants her pancakes with chocolate chips. Instead of spending my morning flipping separate pancake orders for […]

I used to think Valentine’s Day was such a pointless holiday. In the recent years though, I’ve come to use it as an excuse to make sure those whom I care about know it.
I have always been intimidated by cast iron cookware. Owning pots and pans that needed to be “seasoned” and kept rust free, just seemed too high maintenance for me… until I started using the Lodge Cast Iron Dutch Oven.
Get your man looking and smelling good. Here are a few American made gifts he is sure to love. Buying American for a special occasion sometimes requires planning ahead, but he’s worth it (and so are these gifts).
I’m not gonna lie, my favorite part of Super Bowl Sunday is the food….dutch oven chili, nachos, wings, and dips…OH MY!

Winter has hit most of the United States in full force this week and temperatures have dropped drastically to record lows. Baby, it’s sure as heck cold outside!
