My Current Top 5 TV Shows & The Social Network for TV: Beamly

April 17, 2014 No Comments

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Beamly. The opinions and text are all mine.

The last time I checked, our DVR was over 50% full and includes countless episodes of shows I will probably never get around to watching. On a typical day, it may be the late evening before I get a chance to actually sit down and enjoy a good show. Sometimes I only have time to run a show in the background as I work on the computer or clean the kitchen.

April 14, 2014 No Comments

The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free.

When we were in a market for a new television, my husband insisted that it had to be a Smart TV. At the time, I thought it was pointless. We have computers, tablets, and smartphones that already connect to the internet. Why does our television need to as well?

Grocery shopping is something that has to get done weekly. I use to enjoy casually strolling the aisles finding new products and brands to try. Once I became a mom, it wasn’t that easy anymore, especially when the third child was born. I had to quickly adapt to become more efficient on each trip.

A Collection of 12+ Savory Pork Sunday Dinner Recipes

April 1, 2014 No Comments

I am sharing my collection of pork Sunday dinners as a sponsored post with All opinions are my own.

Sundays are often the only ‘family day’ we get each week. My husband works long hours and frequently has to go into the office on Saturdays. However, he does whatever he can to make sure he has Sunday off. He wants to make sure our family has the day to spend together. With that said, the last thing I want to do on Sunday is spend hours in the kitchen making dinner.

Instead of making a labor-intense meal, I like to make recipes that are quick and easy. It could be a casserole, slow cooker meal, or a one-skillet dish. The goal is to have a tasty family meal with little effort. With all the varieties of dinners, pork often is a Sunday favorite. Between pork loins, roasts, chops, bacon, and ham, there are endless delicious meals to cook up. I have put together a collection on with 12+ savory pork Sunday dinner recipes that I will continue to grow.

The collection includes a Ham And Cheese GnocchiChinese Five-Spice Pork One PotCrock Pot Apple Bacon Pork Roast, and many more. Click the collection above to view them on Foodie and while you are there, look around to find more great recipes and collections.
