Classic Chicken Patty Sandwich

Classic Chicken Patty Sandwich

Back in high school, there were certain days that I told my mom to skip the brown bagged lunch: cheese fries day, pizza day and chicken patty sandwich day! I don’t know what it was, but that giant chicken nugget smushed inside that bun was the best.thing.EVER! Didn’t hurt that they only cost 2 bucks either, but man, they were delicious. My new favorite market had some ground chicken on sale and for some reason I got the craving for a homemade chicken patty sandwich. Maybe it’s the fact that I am pregnant and once a craving is in my…

The Best Gift Idea For Kids From ForeverStrong Apparel

When it comes to getting kid gifts, let’s face it, thinking about receiving AND buying toys will give you anxiety. Just the thought of adding to the already mountains of toy clutter makes me want to gouge my eyes out with a rusty nail. A little dramatic, yes, but none the less true. So, to avoid said gouging, I am always looking for cute, non-toy alternative gift idea for kids and their little buddies and I think we hit the jackpot with these adorable BFF shirts for kids from ForeverStrong Apparel. These make me so nostalgic to when I was…

21 Day Fix Approved Recipes ~ Roundup!

Healthy eating has always been a struggle for me and my husband. It wasn’t till I started really understanding what healthy eating entailed, that it became second nature. About a year ago, I started 21 Day Fix from Beachbody that jump-started my healthy eating adventures. I learned portion control, the right & wrong foods for my body and how to cook healthy for not only me, but my family. So I am sharing with you today 10 of my favorite 21 Day Fix approved recipes that you (& your family!) will love. Even if you aren’t into the 21 Day Fix, these…

Breakfast Egg Muffins ~ 21 Day Fix Approved

I don’t know about you, but I am THAT mom who is always late. I have always been that way, and believe me, I try my hardest to get to places on time. It also happens to be my husbands biggest pet peeve. It is one of the few things we get into a fight about. So come the mornings, I am typically running around like a chicken with it’s head chopped off trying to get the kids dressed, fed, hair and teeth brushed, lunches packed and then getting myself ready. I feel like I run a freaking marathon by…

Easy, Peasy Split Pea Soup

Pun totally intended. HA! We are soup lovers in this house and since every member of the family has been struck with illnesses for the past couple weeks, I started whipping up some of our favorites. Chicken Noodle Soup for the little ones and Split Pea per the husbands request. He had one hell of a case of the Man Flu. (cue screams from women everywhere) Just kidding..kind of – he was really sick with strep throat and all he has been asking for was split pea soup. I had a major fail the last time I tried making it for…

I Choose Comfort For Christmas

You know what’s worse than being in the stores on Christmas Eve for last minute Christmas shopping, wrapping hundreds of gifts late into the night before Santa’s arrival and preparing an endless bounty of food for all your relatives? Being pregnant with your third kid while doing all the above. The Anti Mom Blog family is expanding to one more, and my belly is officially growing by the minute. I wasn’t even out of my first trimester and my clothes were already too tight and the pooch popped. To add to my already growing list of stress this holiday season,…

Don’t Hate The Paranoid Mom

Don’t Hate The Paranoid Mom

They say when you become a parent for the first time, you are extra cautious. You have top-of-the-line everything from your diapers to the stroller. The hottest baby gadgets to hit the market fill your home. Every baby book is read from cover to cover. Every sharp corner is cushioned and stairway gated. Come your second, things get a bit more lax. Whoops – the pacifier fell on the floor, but there is no need to worry, for the 5 second rule is always in effect. Somehow, our family did things backwards. Our first daughter was born and people would comment on how relaxed…

Epcot Food and Wine Festival Must Have Foods

It is that time of year my friends, the freakin’ Epcot Food and Wine Festival! This has become an annual trip for my husband and I with our friends and we look forward to it all year long. Disney World is already the happiest place on earth, but add some bad ass foods, delicious wines, beers and spirits and it blows it out of the solar system. There have  been a few trips where I haven’t been able to make it all the way around the world in Epcot. It wasn’t pretty, and throwing up your guts in Morrocco’s fancy bathroom…

Homemade Ranch Dipping Sauce

We are on a serious Ranch kick at the Anti Mom Blog household. Since I’ve been whipping up my own spices, I have been going just a tad over board. I guess it could be worse, I could be obsessing over my new found hobby of designer bag buying. But none the less, everything is coming up ranch in here and the family has been responding quite well. There are a few things that I can credit my husband for getting me to try: the T.V. show Friday Night Lights, cream cheese & strawberry jelly on a toasted bagel and dipping…
