Last month I wrote a “favorite things” blog post on a whim. It was fun to share the book I was reading, my favorite movie, podcast and tv series and other things I am currently loving. The response was great and I got so many messages from readers asking for more. So, I’m excited to announce the Super Mom’s Favorite Things will become a monthly series! AND volume 2 is up today. I even included our new favorite snack from @artisantropic! Sooooo yummy! Click on the link in my bio or swipe up in stories and let me know what categories you’d like to see me add in January!

This week has been hard. Sunday would have been my Nana’s 95th birthday and it was also the first anniversary of the passing of one of my best friends, Brooke. 
This was the photo that hung in my Nana’s living room. She would show it to everyone that visited her.  She told me she would stare at it and smile every single day. She was so proud of all of her great-granddaughters. 🥰 I’m so grateful that my girls were able to know what an amazing woman she really was, even if she was taken from us a little earlier than expected. So while I try to reflect on the good times, I’m still trying to accept that she and my friend are both gone, too soon. It’s been a hard week, but I will get past this and keep living my best life... that’s what they would have wanted. How do you deal with grief?

Happy National Cookie Day! Where are my caramel macchiato fans at?! Super Dad and I will rarely order anything else when visiting our favorite local coffee shops. So when we were trying to come up with the perfect cookie flavor to celebrate today, I had to try these caramel stuffed macchiato chocolate chip cookies. And let me tell you, they came out SO good. Head to the blog for the full recipe (link is in my bio or swipe up in stories). What kind of cookies are you celebrating with today?

I say it all the time. We may have rescued Elle from @bigdogranchrescue, but we needed her just as much, if not more, than she needed us. I can’t imagine our family without her. Does your family have any pets? I’d love to hear about them and how they changed your life. .

We visited @treasurecoastsq last week to remind our girls that the true spirit of the holidays is about giving. #sponsored With their lists in hand, they went to their favorite stores (Claires, Spencer Gifts, Forever 21 and Justice), picking out the perfect gifts for their favorite people.They did such a great job of choosing each present without going over their budget and the only thing they got for themselves was hot cocoa and a snack from Starbucks! On our way out, we took some pictures by the Santa Photo Experience, located in the Old Navy Court and someone special snuck up behind them to get in the pictures. They had no idea that Santa was standing just a couple of feet behind them!  There’s something about the holiday decor at Treasure Coast Square that always gets us in the Christmas spirit. Our next trip will be to drop off some donated toys at The Salvation Army Angel Tree table! What is your favorite part of the holidays? #holidayatsimon

Where are my Frozen fans at?! #ad My girls have been fans since day 1, so it’s not a shock that most of their Christmas wish list is Frozen themed. When we found this @HuffyBicycles Disney Frozen EZ Build Bike at Walmart, Falynn couldn’t "let it go" and she received a Christmas gift early! This bike has so many fun features! It even plays Frozen sounds! It’s available in 12” or 16” and features Elsa, Anna and Olaf. It’s perfect for young riders! Head to Walmart to purchase a Huffy bike for your little one this holiday season. They make the best big reveal gifts for the holidays and you’re sure to get tons of nice "warm hugs!" This bike is ON SALE now -- link in bio and stories to shop.  #GiveTheRide #LiveTheRide #AvailableAtWalmart .

Traditions are a big part of our holiday season. We are so grateful to be working with @minted this year on one of the traditions I love the most, our annual holiday cards. Our daily lives can be hectic, but it’s a great way for us to stay connected to our family and friends. Minted made the process incredibly easy. They have a card template for everyone and they are completely customizable (greeting, colors, fonts, and more). And if you need help, Minted offers free card styling service. Just Text Your Photo to 22737 and a Minted stylist will text you back five holiday card designs, selected especially for and styled with your photo—for FREE. Import your address book and Minted will address the envelopes for you! Do you know how much time that saved me?! They even have the option to create your own stamps to match your cards! I can’t believe how easy it was and more importantly, how beautiful they turned out. We can’t wait to send them off to family and friends this week! Now through 11/29, Minted is offering 20% off all orders $150+ or 15% off all orders, plus free shipping with code BF2019. Have you ordered your holiday cards yet?

Falynn has always been our little fashionista #ad But now that she's older, she's discovering her own sense of style. She prefers shorts to dresses, hats to headbands and would call her own style "swagalicious," if you ask her. She was super excited to receive this new #BMR1959 Ken doll! She must have spent 15 minutes describing each piece of his outfit. She really got a kick out of their matching hairdos! I love watching her enjoy @Barbie as much as I did as a kid! BMR1959™ is perfect for the holidays! These bold, fully posable dolls capture the diverse looks found in today’s streetwear culture. From high-low fashion mixes, re-imagined ‘90s gear to juxtaposed patterns, textures, and silhouettes, this curated ensemble is all about personal expression and style. Is #Barbie a staple in your home as well? .

Fresh Cranberry Orange Relish Recipe

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. I love creating the menu, planning every detail and seeing everyone enjoy themselves as they fill their bellies with everything I worked so hard to prepare for them.  Our Thanksgiving menu rarely changes but this year I’ve decided to take one of our favorite dishes, fresh cranberry orange relish and try to make it a little healthier than normal.

I’m not a lover of cranberry sauce. The thought of that weird, jiggly, canned substance makes my stomach turn.  Luckily, my Mom introduced me to what has become a family favorite in our house, Fresh Cranberry Orange Relish.  It’s tart and sweet and never lasts long. The best part about it is that it’s super easy to make and my kids can help me make it since there is no cooking involved!

All you need is a 10oz bag of fresh cranberries, 2 navel oranges, some sugar and a little water.  The regular recipe calls for a cup of sugar, but this year, I decided to take that down to 1/4 cup.

Take the cranberries and add them to your food processor.  Depending on the amount and size of your processor, you may need to do this in two rounds.

Peel and cut up your oranges and add those to the food processor, as well as a small piece of orange rind.  This gives the relish some tartness.  You can add more or less, depending on your taste.

Next, add your sugar and a couple of teaspoons of water.  You may also consider substituting the water for some sort of juice to give it a little something extra.   Chop all of the ingredients coarsely and place it all into a sealable container and put it into the refrigerator overnight.  You can make this up to 2-3 days in advance if you’d like. The longer it sits, the better it will taste.

When it’s time to serve, you can plate it like it is, or add a cute little garnish to the top.  This year, I created little oranges in the shape of a heart and my kids loved it!  They didn’t even notice the lack of sugar either!  It’s a refreshing dish that can be eaten with dinner, as an appetizer or even as a dessert.  Enjoy! Don’t forget to check out our Dill Stuffing recipe too!

    Not gonna lie, you sure did make me want to actually cook something for Thanksgiving. Cranberry relish has never been a favorite of mine, but yours is so fresh I can tell it puts all others to shame.

  • Vera Sweeney

    I like this better than just plain cranberry sauce. I love the combination of cranberries and oranges.

  • Up Run for Life Healthy Lifestyle Blog

    I am not a huge fan of relishes. This sounds like the perfect recipe when you have too many leftover cranberries to use up.

  • Sarah Bailey
    February 9, 2018

    Now this sounds like an interesting recipe, I love the idea of making a relish with really fresh ingredients. Delicious!

  • Kathy

  • Nancy Lustri

    Relish that consists of two of my favorite fruits?! Yes, sign me up! I bet this would taste great with some ice cream – I would totally love this for a dessert.

  • Heather
    February 8, 2018

    Yeah, I think this is a much better version of cranberry sauce anyway, not that canned stuff, although I don’t mind it! I love that the oranges look like hearts.
