What is your favorite Tastefully Simple product?
I love all of our seasonings! My favorite is Onion Onion™ Seasoning. I use it all the time to replace fresh onions and save time.

What's your favorite kitchen tool?
My slow cooker! I use it all the time, especially on the busy days when I know we have very little time to eat and run when we get home. I am still able to provide my family with a delicious, homemade meal that's better for them.

What kind of food do you enjoy making?
I strive to make meals that are better for my family, but that my kids will still love! I love to experiment and try new ways to make my favorite foods and add a little variety to our meals.

A few sentences about yourself.
Family is very important to me. I am married with two kids and we have a really active lifestyle. Between many sports and school activities for the kids, adult sports leagues for my husband and I, many camping trips as a family and a variety of other activities, we are a very busy family with hectic schedules. I love to provide meals and snacks for my family that will keep them going and staying active, and of course, treats to show how much I love them! Sharing my tips and tricks for staying afloat in this crazy life and making the constant battle of "what should we eat?" a little easier is why I love contributing to our blog. If I can make one mom (or Dad!) out there a little less stressed even a couple times a month, I've done my job!
