Hood Cream e-CookBook is now Available! #CookWithHood

“I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Influence Central for Hood Cream. I received product samples as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.”
Do you remember my Hood Cream Immersion Dinner post?  Remember all those delicious entrees I had the opportunity to try?  It was amazing to see how perfectly Hood Cream makes a meal taste light and creamy.  However those meals were cooked by a top chef, Chris Coombs, so how could we come up with recipes that make our taste buds sing like those at the immersion dinner?  With a cook book created by Hood Cream and Chris Coombs, that's how!
The free eCookbook was launched on September 28th and features more than 25 recipes created by Chris Coombs himself!  The eCookbook is currently available on Hood Creams website and will be available soon on platforms like Barnes and Noble and iTunes.
Best of all this cook book is packed with tips directly from Chris Coombs on cooking with cream.
I am so excited to step up my game in the kitchen this fall while trying out all these delicious recipes on my own.  One of the dinners I can't wait to create are Spring Carbonara, This is a great pasta dish that will help get a good amount of veggies into my kids, although I may skip the yolk on their portion.

Are your kids Avengers fans?  Mine sure are!  With my boys everything has to do with Avengers, clothes, toys, room decor, you name it and they are talking about Avengers.  So you can imagine the excitement in my house regarding the newly released MARVEL's The Avengers: Age of Ultron Blue-ray/DVD that came out October 2nd.
  I am thrilled that it came out on DVD just in time for the Halloween season.  This is a fun time for parties and what better way for my kids to enjoy their favorite super hero bunch than with a MARVEL's The Avengers: Age of Ultron viewing party!

Our cat is spoiled, very spoiled!  My brother brought her home years ago and thinks its his cat, the kids are sure she is their cat, and in all actuality the cat is my fathers who happens to love this cat more than anything.  My brother and I often make fun of him because it is very possible that he loves this cat more than either of us.

It's one of my favorite times of year, Halloween!  I love the feeling of this month, the pumpkin picking, the Halloween parties, trick-o-treating, everything!  It is such a fun time of year.
Now I have started another fun tradition for this time of year, BOO'ing.  I recently started hearing about this fun way of sharing the Halloween spirit with friends, family, and neighbors and now I'm hooked.  It is so much fun for everyone involved!

So what exactly is BOO'ing?  You create a fun little package of candy and Halloween themed items and leave it anonymously on someone's front door.  Now that person has been Boo'd!
This is the BOO kit I created this Halloween:

Fall is my domesticated season.  I seem to cook more, bake more, and clean a whole lot more.  The fresh fruits and vegetables during the fall months are some of my favorites.  Between apple picking, visiting pumpkin patches, and the endless supply of tomatoes that come from my fathers garden right as fall hits.  I always end up busy in the kitchen.  On top of all the cooking, with the kids back in school, I always find myself in home recovery mode.  Trying to clean out from the clutter and mess of two months worth of lazy and crazy days.  Plus opening the windows and airing everything out while your cleaning in the fall is the best.  The cool crisp air is so refreshing after having the air conditioner on all summer and before the cooped up winter arrives.
