Pillsbury Heat n Go Giveaway

by Allison @ Alli 'n Son September 9, 2013 Giveaway

We are not morning people. We are late morning people, after a cup or two of coffee. After a good nights sleep. After breakfast and time to wake up our lazy bodies. We are not morning people. Even when our bodies have to be up and moving and going, going, going, our minds are comfortably [...]

Frozen S’more Banana Pops

by Allison @ Alli 'n Son August 18, 2013 Dessert

I’ll let you in on a little secret. I’m slightly obsessive with food right now. Well, always, but I’m obsessive with two foods in particular. Bananas and avocados. I eat both of these on a near daily basis. Why you may ask? Because they are magic foods. Magic running foods. Bananas help fuel my legs [...]

A Modern Movie Night Giveaway Winner

by Allison @ Alli 'n Son July 29, 2013 Giveaway Winners

We had an oddly cold snap this past weekend. Temps dipped into the 40s. THE 40s. At the end of July, this is anything but normal. Yes, even in Wisconsin we are used to temps in the 90s with humidity to match. The cold weather got me thinking about back to school and fall and [...]

A Modern Movie Night Giveaway

by Allison @ Alli 'n Son July 11, 2013 Giveaway

 Mars graciously supplied me with a wonderful movie night package and has sponsored this post and giveaway.

Chocolate Chip, Peanut Butter, and Banana Cookies

by Allison @ Alli 'n Son June 16, 2013 Dessert

I love me some banana bread. My late grandma-in-law has the best, richest, sweetest, most sinful recipe around. You can’t help but feel that she is right there, smiling with love in her eyes, when you enjoy it. Although, I must say that Nutella swirl banana bread is a pretty close second. I also love me [...]

I’m sitting here, at my computer, and there’s a real chance that I may not be able to get up again. You see, I spent the morning running on a relay team for a marathon. I tackled the first two legs, to get my miles in for my up coming second half marathon. Those two [...]

Nutella Granola

by Allison @ Alli 'n Son April 22, 2013 Breakfast

Each and every morning I’m faced with a huge dilemma. What should I eat breakfast? My heart wants chocolate. My brain cries for something healthy. My body shouts out for chocolate. My runners legs scream for something to fuel them. And thus, I am torn. Chocolate or healthy. Chocolate or healthy. Chocolate or healthy. It’s [...]

Happy Five

by Allison @ Alli 'n Son April 8, 2013 Uncategorized

Hey Kiddo, It’s been a few days now, and I’ve had some time to process. You are 5. It always comes as a surprise how very special your birthday is to me. Each year I expect the impact to lessen a little. But it doesn’t. Even if it doesn’t strike me right away, it’s importance seeps into [...]

Real ingredients and my breakfast hero

by Allison @ Alli 'n Son March 19, 2013 Sponsored Post

We are not morning people. We much prefer to sleep away the day until at least 8:00. 9:00 would be even better, and 10:00 would be a dream. As in I must be dreaming to think that I’ll ever sleep that late again in this lifetime. We are people who like to sleep. Seep. Sleep. [...]

Chocolate Chip Orange Scones with Orange Glaze

I tried so hard to take the easy way out of this month’s Secret Recipe Club. It’s not that I didn’t want to try a new recipe. It’s not that there weren’t plenty of options to pick from. It’s just that I wanted to be lazy. It must be the constant snow that is never, ever [...]
