Back to Packing Lunches

By Emily. My goal for this six week long challenge with Made to Matter, Handpicked by TargetTM was to get a handle on our on-the-go lunches. The challenge was perfectly timed now that the new school year is on my heels and I can’t stress it enough—attaining this goal was ALL about prep. I stocked my pantry with good, clean snacks that I can grab in a rush, stash in my purse or even leave in a box in the trunk to help me get a head start! Then, once a week I started taking a little chunk of time to … Read more

Yogurt Dots

This Fall marks two years since we posted Frozen Yogurt Dots! That post went absolutely viral and is still one of our most popular posts all this time later. We made one grave mistake though, and that was to use artificial food coloring! We were reminded again and again (got a comment last week even) of the ill-effects of using artificial colors in cooking.

We used India … Read more

Which has aided me so much in my goal this summer of spending more focused time with my family, and less time … Read more

Manic Morning

By Nicole. Hi. I’m that mom that stops for donuts for breakfast on our way to school. Every morning. We don’t feel that bad about it either ;). Actually, I have a lot of mom guilt when it comes to the way I feed my kids. I’m recently divorced and and find eating out so much easier than cooking a meal for one adult (myself) and two kiddos who more than likely won’t eat it. So, eating out seems like the best option. Our trouble is we eat out the fast food way. Even for breakfast. That’s where Made To … Read more

Rethink, Restock

We’re back with our second assignment for the Made to Matter, Handpicked by Target™ six week challenge! For this week, Target sent us into their store to stock on options that are a little better for us. We all made picks based on our goals we made last week (see the post here!) and using the Made to Matter section made it all such a breeze. Jenna who is our resident label translator found so many awesome options to incorporate to help us reach our goals all day long! We snagged something for every meal and in between. Here are … Read more
