Cucumber Greek Salad Recipe

See cucumber salad in a whole new way when you slice cucumbers with a vegetable spiralizer. Delicious cucumber spirals are tossed with cherry tomatoes, feta cheese, kalamata olives and pepperoncinis.   I have been curious about vegetable spiralizers ever since the word Zoodles hit the internet. Here's the gist of what I have learned so far: Zoodles are vegetables (commonly zucchini) that have been sliced into long, noodle-like … [Read more...]

Volunteers Needed: Make No Sew Superhero Capes For Kids

As I flipped through a recent Family Fun magazine, one particular photo caught my eye. Two happy kids running around a smiling mom, all wearing colorful capes.

They are part of a volunteer campaign to get families like yours and mine to make and donate capes to kids who … [Read more...]

Chillafish BMXie-RS Balance Bike Review and Giveaway

"We love balance bikes. They have been an awesome way for my kids to learn how to ride." Those are pretty much my exact words to anyone who sees my child riding the new Chillafish BMXie-RS balance bike and asks about it. The BMXie is a great learning bike designed for kids ages 2 to 5 years old. Chillafish BMXie bikes are styled to look like mini-BMX bikes, which I think is super cute and the kids think is super cool. We have partnered with … [Read more...]

Washi Tape S’mores Sticks

Everyone who has tried it (and we recently had a s'mores party!) agrees that Washi Tape S'mores Sticks are a super fun idea. These are so quick and easy to make (I promise!) and totally worth the teeny tiny amount of effort it takes. They do double duty as marshmallow roasting sticks AND table decorations. I love to collect washi tapes, and look for cute ways to put my stash to good use. For example, making these unique s'mores … [Read more...]

Exciting news! Mom Always Finds Out has been selected as a Generation Graco Ambassador. I am honored and excited about our partnership.

Little did I know that one day I would have the chance to work with Graco and tell other moms all about their products. As an experienced mom of four boys, I … [Read more...]

PBS Kids Peg + Cat Out of this World DVD

We have partnered with PBS Kids to add several PBS Kids DVDs to our collection, including the newly released Peg + Cat: Out of this World. The Peg + Cat animated series is geared towards children ages 3 to 5 years old, and focuses on foundational math concepts and skills. It's so smart that my 6-year-old … [Read more...]

DIY Tabletop Fire Bowl (It’s a Great S’mores Maker, Too!)

S'mores are a huge part of the summer season at my house. We have a fire pit in the backyard where the kids love to toast marshmallows. They ask to do it almost every day. I'm always putting them off because building a fire every single day is not worth the hassle just for a few s'mores. (Sorry, I hope my opinion doesn't offend any diehard s'mores lovers! Bear with me for a minute, I did find a way we can eat s'mores just about anytime we want -- … [Read more...]
