Food Fights Giveaway

I have been debating on which blog I should give a copy of this book away on.  However, since this blog mainly focuses on food, I decided this one.  🙂

Food Fights is a great book that talks about the food issues most of use have at our dinner tables each and every day.  It is about which battles are worth fighting over and which are not.  It also has some great advice on what to do with certain behaviors like thowing food.  There is even a section about the 5 second rule!  As a parent, this is must read.

Sounds like something you’d be interested in?  Well, I have a copy that I will be giving away to one of my lucky readers!  What do you have to do?

Slow Cooker Chicken

In a hurry and need a quick and easy recipe?  This easy to make slow cooker recipe will be right up your alley.  I only use things that you will have around your house.  You just throw everything in, turn the slow cooker on, and it will be ready for dinner that night.  (This works extremely well when your significant other doesn’t come home at the same time every night, and you and the kids need to eat.  It is still hot when they come home.)


Slow Cooker Chicken
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 can of cream of mushroom soup
  • 4 potatoes cubed
  • 1 packet of Onion soup mix
  1. Place chicken breasts and cubed potatoes in slow cooker. Pour the can of cream of mushroom soup over the top. Then sprinkle the onion soup mix over the top. Cover and set to low for 6 - 8 hours.

Morton’s Seasoning

My husband loves spicy. The kids and I do not. It makes cooking at my house extremely interesting since I would like everybody to be happy.  Morton’s Seasoning Salt and Cajun Seasoning was a huge hit in my house.  We recently tried this seasoning on some wonderful thin sliced porterhouse steaks from our local grocery store.  The seasoning salt gave my steak an awesome flavor. I am not one for seasoning most things, so I was surprised how the seasoning brought out the flavor of my already awesome steak.  I shared my steak with the kids, and they also liked it.  My husband tried the Cajun Seasoning on his steak.  He liked the kick that his steak got from it.  When I make steaks, I hadn’t been seasoning them at all.  However, now that I have been turned onto the delicious flavors of Morton’s Seasonings, I am now going to be seasoning everything I grill out on my Foreman Grill (remember, I live in Chicago, and it is a tad cold to grill outside).  If you would like to try out these seasonings on your own, they can be bought at any one of the 80 Morton’s Steakhouse locations and their website.  I have to decide what to make for dinner tonight, and I think steak sounds good, don’t you?
