There aren't many roles in life that are as humbling as parenting a child. If you think you're patient (tolerant, stoic, giving, loving, fill-in-the-blank), you'll likely be tested beyond your limits. Fortunately, neither my husband nor I have ever said or done something tha... Read More »

It seems like the moment Back to School season starts, the countdown towards the holidays begins. I feel like we were just discussing the new school year and yet now we're beginning to talk about trick or treating and which Disney character my son is going to dress up as.
Last week, Jennifer Garner and Frigidaire kicked off their newest campaign in LA...Time to T... Read More »

Every year, I make a commitment to do better...to eat more foods that grow on trees or in the ground...to cook as opposed to eating out...to simplify our eating habits so that we're healthier. While we're definitely committed to eating this way, there is always room for improvement.
Last week, Frigidaire and Jennifer Garner joined families at a local farm in Ne... Read More »

Being a mom means that sometimes, I have to get dirty. Whether it's at home in the kitchen or outside in the park, dirt...and stains are inevitable.
Earlier this week, my son and I went to bat against stains...literally! Frigidaire kicked off Stain Games in Los Angeles with ambassador Jennifer Garner to help raise funds and awareness for Save the Children’s ... Read More »

One my resolutions for 2011 is to cook most of our meals and limit the number of times we eat out. Not only is eating out expensive, it's very difficult to control the types of ingredients, the quality of the food, and the portion sizes offered at dining establishments.
My son observed both my husband and I cooking and baking in the kitchen from infancy. He... Read More »

The company has teamed up with Jennifer Garner to support Save the Children's U.S. Programs, dedicated to helping impoverished children living in the U.S. If you check out their new Spin &...

I just LOVE to cook (um...ok...that's a bit of an overstatement). I don't usually enjoy cooking, but I'm learning to like it. I mean, it takes a LOT of time, right? Meal planning, grocery shopping, preparing (i.e. chopping, etc.), cooking... That's why I need all the help I can get. And that help has come from Frigidaire! As a Test Drive Mom, my goal is to...

I shudder when my husband tells me he's going out of town for work. It's never fun to go to work, care for a household and a child by yourself...while pregnant and SICK. Add in the fact that I never avoid at all costs rarely cook and the result is a very expensive week of eating out. It's not my fault...not really! I grew up in a house where my father did 100% o...

A few weeks ago, I applied with Mom Central to be a part of a Test Drive Team for the roll out of a brand new collection of kitchen appliances from Frigidaire. I knew it would be a long shot...thousands of applicants...40 openings...and one mommy in need of a new range. Well, I am so excited to share with you my involvement with Frigidaire as a Test Drive Mom!... Read More »
