Chobani Giveaway Winner

Congratulations to the Chobani giveaway winner, Kim H! Prepare yourself for some super-delicious (and healthy) yogurt. They're on their way!

The more I thought about it, I realized I use yogurt is a lot of different recipes. Some of my favorites around the web are Homemade Yogurt Pancakes by Epicurious, a yummy Tuna Salad Sandwich via Shutterbean or this genius snack idea (stawberries dipped in yogurt, then frozen).

In other unrelated topics, Christmas is RIGHT round the corner and I'm panicking a little because I still have gifts to buy, crafts to make and other general things I should have taken care of last week.

I'm beginning to realize (i.e. accept) that being organized becomes exponentially more difficult with each child. Oh well, what they cost me in time they make up for in cuteness.

Looking at the bright side, at least we have some things done like a decorated Christmas tree in our living room. 

Aaaaand, that's about it.

This holiday season, I'll be spending time with family and friends, remembering how thankful I am God sent his Son to give us new life. 

 I wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Blueberry Yogurt Parfait + Chobani Giveaway

  It's that time in the afternoon again. 

The time the kids are napping. 

The time I have some free time. 

The time I plan to do chores, but end up sitting down doing nothing. 

Ahhh, nothing feels good.

I like to enjoy doing nothing with a snack, don't you? A cup of coffee doesn't hurt either. Today, I made this yogurt parfait with the good intentions of eating half, then sharing the rest with Will. But it never made it that far. I started eating, and....

....just like that, gone. Good thing there's more yogurt in the fridge.

I like to snack on yogurt because it's packed with healthy goodness like protein, calcium, and bacteria that keep your gut healthy. Plus, most yogurts are fairly low in calories and fat. I buy plain, non-fat/low-fat greek yogurt and sweeten it myself with either jam, honey or splenda. To make this parfait, I added fresh blueberries and granola.

Right now I'm really loving Chobani yogurt because it tastes GREAT and comes in a variety of flavors. This week, I bought plain greek yogurt. Apart from making parfaits, I like to use it in cooking as a sub for mayo and sour cream. It's so naturally rich and creamy, no one knows the difference. Score one for mom!

And good news, the nice folks at Chobani want to send you some....for FREE! And not just any yogurt, their new flavors: peach, blueberry, black cherry, vanilla chocolate chunk, mango, and pineapple. Each yogurt is 16 oz each, so there's plenty to enjoy. I got to try them and they're goooooood. Eaten alone or used in recipes, you'll be a fan. You can enter three ways:

1. Post a comment telling me your favorite way to enjoy yogurt
2. Like me on Facebook
3. Have a smart phone? Follow me on instagram {tiffany_rd}

Enter all three ways, and your name with be entered three times! Just let me know what you did.

Good luck!
