How To Help Families In Need


Expecting a new baby was always an exciting time for our family.

But preparing for a new baby can also feel overwhelming – especially if finances are tight.

I just found out that 1-in-3 families struggle to provide diapers for their baby & there is something we can do to help with Huggies.

How To Help Families In Need

From today until April 29 2018, any purchases of Huggies Diapers or Wipes at any Walgreens, both in-store and online at, Huggies will give an entire day’s worth of diapers to the National Diaper Bank Network for families in need.

The goal of this program is to donate 1.5 million diapers and 250,000 wipes nationwide to the National Diaper Bank Network (NDBN).

The surprising stats about the lack of diaper and wipes access make this an decision if your family is wondering how to help families in need.

We all want to make sure our little ones have everything they need at home, and simply purchasing Huggies from Walgreens can have a huge impact on a family.


In our house we buy Huggies wipes in bulk, so ordering them at was an easy decision.

In addition, we bought extra diapers and wipes to donate to a nearby hospital, as I know they also are happy to receive donations.

The Best New Healthy Frozen Yogurt Is….

This year, my wife and I decided to clean up our eating at home.

This doesn’t mean eating only raw fruits and veggies like a family of cavemen, but more like being mindful of the list of ingredients on any foods we purchase.

We said goodbye to ingredients like high fructose corn syrup, artificial flavors and growth hormones.

Which frozen yogurt fits this bill?

Best NEW Healthy Frozen Yogurt

I could practically eat frozen yogurt every day for every meal.

This probably stems from my time living in Italy where gelato is its own food group.

So, last time I stopped in our local Winn-Dixie grocery store, I wandered down the freezer aisle craving a sweet treat for me and the kids.

As I starting picking up frozen yogurts & reading labels to find a cleaner alternative, I came across a new product by Kemps called Yo².

I picked up the Mudslide flavor and at first glance I noticed it didn’t have any of the things we are trying to steer clear from (added growth hormones, artificial flavors and high fructose corn syrup).

Kemps Yo² is made from natural yogurt sourced from family farms and infused with simple ingredients to create six delicious and fun flavors.


I left Winn-Dixie with the Mudslide flavor of Kemps Yo², and I couldn’t wait to get home to taste it with my kids.

My youngest daughter and I took our first bites and were blown away.

Other frozen yogurts we’ve bought have been hard to scoop, bland and we would have to get very creative at home with toppings to make it interesting for the kids.

The gooey chocolates, caramel and other infused flavors inside Kemps Yo² was a serious game changer for our family and no toppings needed.

Can’t wait to have one of my famous BBQs to share Kemps Yo² with my friends and family!

Why This Super Car Fan Loves Sebring Raceway

We live only 2 hours from the Sebring Raceway in Florida, but luckily you don’t have to live near Sebring, FL  to catch the upcoming sports car super race.

This 12-HOUR RACE from IMSA is a super car fan’s dream with everything from Ferrari to Lamborghini to Porsche to Aston Martin & more all racing together for 12 hours to win the coveted prize.

sebring raceway

It’s as much about the super cars (there will be 46 of them from 13 different brands) as it is about the Sebring Raceway.

Sebring Raceway Will Exhaust Drivers

The Sebring Raceway is America’s oldest road race track & was originally used as an airport during World War II.

The significance for this weekend’s race is that these high performance cars will have to prove themselves on 65-year-old worn & torn concrete!

After 12 hours of that, the endurance of both the cars & the drivers will be seriously tested.

Did I Mention The CARS?

I don’t know of any other race where F1 cars, NASCAR cars & Indy Car all race together on the same track!

We’ll be able to see inside the cars with the IMSA mobile app streaming LIVE from in-car cameras.

Whether you love racing, love cars or just want to tune in to catch the excitement, there’s no reason to miss this race.

The Sebring event weekend has already started with the grand finale – the WeatherTech Championship race – beginning at 12.30 this Saturday, March 18th & ending at 11pm!

You can catch it LIVE on TV with Fox Sports 1.


It will also be live online at Fox Sports Go.

Peruvian Ceviche

Ceviche is the national dish of Peru and can be found on every restaurant menu when visiting the country.

There are so many variations of the dish using local fish and shellfish.

This light and refreshing dish may look intimidating, but it’s probably one of the simplest recipes to master.

  • 4 fillets of fresh Tilapia
  • ½ purple onion
  • ½ cup chopped cilantro
  • salt
  • pepper
  • Tobasco hot sauce
  • 12-15 Fresh limes


Start by cutting the tilapia in ½ inch cubes. Place them in a flat bottom dish, like one meant for casseroles.


Cut the onion in half and in thin strips. Add sliced onions and chopped cilantro to the dish with the chopped fish.


Squeeze 12 limes, or enough to barely cover the fish, onion and cilantro.


Add salt, pepper and tobacco to taste.

Mix it together, cover it with saran wrap and place it in the fridge.

Remove thirthy minutes later, stir and put it back in the fridge for another 15 minutes.

Serve with a side of baked sweet potato slices and corn on the cob for a more traditional experience or just some fresh corn tortilla chips for snacking.

Ropa Vieja

This Latin creole comfort food is one of the most well-known dishes of the west indies.

It’s even known as the national dish of Cuba.

The word Ropa Vieja, translates to “old clothes”.

Although its not the most attractive name, it was named to describe the shreds of meat, peppers, and onions resembling a mess of colorful fabrics.

Serves 4-5


  • 1.5 lbs. of flank steak
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 medium onion
  • 1 six oz. can of tomato sauce
  • 8-10 oz. of mojo
  • ¾ large green bell pepper
  • 6 oz. of roasted red pepper (in a jar)


First you’ll need to season the meat with salt and pepper on both sides.

Place in slow cooker with tomato sauce.

Pour in the mojo sauce until it covers ½ of the meat.


Cook until meat can be easily pulled apart by two forks (about 5 hours).


Pull apart all of the meat and add sliced green peppers, sliced onion and sliced roasted red peppers.


Add salt and pepper to taste.

Serve over white rice with a side of black beans.

Buen provecho!

Chiles Rellenos

I had the pleasure of visiting many cities across the country and getting to taste all of the different flavors.

One of my favorite dishes is the traditional Chiles Rellenos, or stuffed poblano peppers.



  • 6 poblano peppers
  • 6 Roma tomatoes (medium sized)
  • ¼ of a medium white onion
  • 1tsb of minced garlic
  • Quesadilla cheese
  • Salt + Pepper to taste


Cut a slit in the poblano peppers and remove all seeds from the inside.


Place six poblano a large frying pan with no oil and let brown on each side by turning them every minute on high heat for a total of 5-6 minutes.

When browned on each side, remove the poblano Peppers from the heat and place them inside of a plastic zip lock bag to allow them to “sweat” and loosen the skin of the pepper (about 5 minutes).

Remove the peppers from the bag and remove the very top layer of the skin carefully.


Boil the tomatoes and the onion in water for about 3 minutes.


Remove them from the water and place the tomatoes and onion in a blender. Blend until it resembles a tomato sauce. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Stuff the poblano peppers with strips of the quesadilla cheese. Place them in a large, oiled skillet on high heat for about 30 seconds on each side to allow the cheese to melt.


Place on the plate and cover with the tomato sauce.

Buen provecho!
