Banana and Sweet Potato Oatmeal: Easy Breakfast Recipe

Banana and Sweet Potato Oatmeal: Easy Breakfast Recipe

I'm always on the look out for easy breakfast recipes that pack in as many nutrients for my kids as possible and homemade oatmeal is, without a doubt, my go-to recipe most days. This Banana and Sweet Potato Oatmeal breakfast recipe is a new favorite of the kids' because it uses a sweetened, canned sweet potato. When Walmart asked me to test out the line of canned sweet potatoes they have by Sager Creek Veggies, I knew I wanted to sneak it into the kids' diet somehow. Normally, I pick up the fresh variety, but I have to be honest - I don't have as much time to prep and process these days. … [Read more...]

As their mother and legacy builder, I know that it's my responsibility to teach our kids a fundamental base of knowledge. I've been implementing kind of like a school-at-home mentality since my oldest was about two years old, using simple crafts and learning games to reinforce educational goals.

3 Ways to Add Christmas Music to Your Holiday Traditions

3 Ways to Add Christmas Music to Your Holiday Traditions

Music is a true unifier. In it's presence, we cultivate moments of bonding and connection that evoke all kinds of emotion. Would you agree? Food does that for me, too, but music is definitely high on the list of legacy building tools. Especially during the holidays, I can't think of anything more uplifting than a collection of our favorite Christmas music. When I was a kid, the holiday traditions depended on who's house I was at. My mom's home was full of Spanish Christmas music that enveloped the entirety of our Cuban Christmas traditions. Those songs were typically upbeat and perfect for … [Read more...]

 

The Legacy of Education: The Milton Hershey School

The Legacy of Education: The Milton Hershey School

It’s hard to believe that children in America live without a family to love, warm food in their bellies and a roof to product them. It hurts my heart knowing that those children – no matter how wonderful a teacher might be – cannot focus on the education that propels them to a fruitful adulthood because their basic needs have not even been met.

In 1909, after The Hershey Company had become the American staple that it is now, … [Read more...]
