Kellogg's Champion of #GreatStarts

Help us share breakfast with a child in need.

I am very proud to once again partner with my friends at Kelloggs, Action for Healthy Kids and the Team USA athletes in helping to spread the word about the #GreatStarts program's effort to provide breakfasts to kids who might otherwise go without. How? By sharing ways in which you can help share breakfast with a child in need, too. This is my fourth year helping Kellogg's give childhood hunger the virtual bitch-slap it deserves. Why? Long story short, because my family is no stranger to hunger: And, as promised, here's the video featuring the Team USA athletes. For each... Read more →

Sometimes teens remember the good stuff, too.

One of the most memorable moments of the 2014 Sochi Olympics for our family was watching my fellow Team Kelloggs and Team USA athletes Meryl Davis and Charlie White skate their way to a gold medal in ice dancing. You see, through our partnership with Kellogg's (an official sponsor of the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Teams) I had the super-awesome opportunity of wishing Meryl and Charlie well and also allowed me the "once in a lifetime" chance to skate with them on The Rink at Rockefeller Center, while taping this segment for the TODAY Show in NYC. Okay, I lied.... Read more →

Help teens get a great start in the morning, for real!

As a Kellogg's KChamps partner, I had the extreme pleasure of meeting with U.S. Olympic legends (that's me over there, standing with 1980 Olympic Hockey Gold Medalist...Jim Craig...seriously?!?) and athlete hopefuls representing Team USA to help kick-off the 100 day countdown to the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games. I know, who ever thought a dork like me would EVER be able to say that, out loud, RIGHT?!? Kellogg's is also an official sponsor of the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Teams and, now that we are just a few days away from the opening ceremonies for the winter games (February 7th,...

Teen-friendly Tapas: easy-peasy chicken and waffles recipe.

A drizzle of warm honey and a sprinkling of fresh chives dress-up these chicken topped mini waffles, very nicely! Last month, I was invited to meet with U.S. Olympic legends and athlete hopefuls representing Team USA in New York City to help kick-off the 100 day countdown to the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games. I know, who EVER thought a dork like me would EVER be able to say that, out loud, RIGHT?!? Aaaaaanyway, one of my favorite activities from this awesome event was participating in helping to create an absolutely awesome brunch, in my pretend kitchen at The Culinary... Read more →

Hard to Digest Moments: Watching movies
with your teens.

I am honored to be able to partner with Kellogg's as a Champion of #GreatStarts blogger, with many thanks for their sponsoring this blog post and allowing me to share our stories with families (like mine) and (hopefully) help get each day off to a great start. Have you seen the latest Kellogg's commercials? How'd That Happen and Tweezers are part of the Rice Krispies "hard to digest" campaign, showcasing awkward moments between parents and kids. When our little ones get smart enough to ask questions that we're just so NOT ready to answer...yet...and, I'm sorry to say, the conversations... Read more →

How we can help Kellogg's & Scholastic give families free books!

Disclosure: As a Champion of #GreatStarts blogger, I am honored to partner with Kellogg's in helping families (like mine) achieve great starts to their days. I am being compensated for my services for the length of the program. It's the first day of school, here in Jersey (I know, it is kinda late, but the kids seemed okay wit-it!) which means my crew was up and ready to get out of the house by...wait...for...it...6:30, this morning. Aaaaaand, I couldn't help but get all caught up in the tide of nervous energy flowing throughout the house. I was showered, dressed, baked... Read more →
