I don’t think there is a candy more well associated with Christmas than candy canes. So when I sat down to think about a special Christmas Rice Krispies® Treat for my last sponsored post for Rice Krispies, I knew I had to incorporate candy canes… and chocolate. Why chocolate? Because it is chocolate, of course. But in all […]

Do you give your dog a Christmas present? We do. Our dogs have their own stockings, and they even exchange gifts with my sister and mom’s dogs too. Yep, we are a dog-loving family, and we wouldn’t have it any other way. Since my dogs are no longer puppies and not really interested in toys, my go-to […]
