Last Summer, Costco opened here in Baton Rouge. Costco is a membership warehouse club, known for its great service, organic options, and low prices. Stacy and Sara both love Costco, but for different reasons. Stacy shops Costco weekly and almost exclusively, while Sara makes a monthly trip to stock up on items she can't find in her hometown grocery stores. They have worked together to create a list of their 12 favorite parts of this Baton Rouge store. My name is Stacy, and I am addicted to Costco. They sell everything. Everything. From organic eggs to yummy pastries, from batteries to beach chairs, from televisions to tires- they even sell cars online!- they sell a wide variety of quality products, and...
Disclosure: This event was sponsored by Grimaldi’s Coal Brick-Oven Pizzeria Delicious, authentic and superb service: that is what we look for in a great dining experience! A few weeks ago, our team braved the soggy weather to head to the new Grimaldi’s Pizzeria located at the Mall of Louisiana. We were so glad we did! Upon arriving, we were happily greeted by the staff and taken into the private room where we had a nice long table to accommodate our growing team of moms. Our server quickly took drink orders as the chairs started to fill up. We began with a mixture of fresh salads including the Caprese Salad, Caesar Salad and Grimaldi’s House Salad. Let’s just say those didn’t last very...
On January 29, we had 40 moms come together to participate in an educational evening held at the locally-owned Alexander’s Highland Market. It was a great night to meet other, local moms, chat about meal-planning, eat and drink, enter some incredible giveaways, and take home an awesome SWAG bag! Here's a closer look at this great night.  We were so happy to have Courtney Brock, the director of the Metabolic Kitchen at the Pennington Biomedical Research Center, and her team of Dieticians ready to lead our moms on an informative tour that focused on making healthy choices and gathering ingredients for a delicious Quinoa Lentil Chili. Courtney began the tour in the produce section of the store where Hanley’s Foods...
All this week we are tasting and judging the yummiest treats in Baton Rouge to find you the best of the best—mom (and kid) approved! For each place we tested, we considered flavor, texture/quality, kid-friendly atmosphere, service, and our overall experience. It wasn’t easy (since each place is awesome), but somebody had to do it. When given the chance to find the best anything edible in Baton Rouge, what pregnant woman could really resist?  I mean really, how fun would an entire day filled with endless amounts of frozen yogurt be for the boys, my niece... and myself?!  Definitely unlike any other day in our household.  We started early, mapped out our stops and dove in head first in...

I love me a good cupcake, so when the bids were going out for this foodie project, I jumped on them as my research project. And then I was like "wait...are there any cupcake shops in Baton Rouge?" Yes! There are! Great ones, actually. I quickly got my google on, mapped out our route, and ventured out to find the best cupcake in Baton...

Apparently, it can get pretty ugly. Mary Lee's has been a staple in Baton Rouge for decades, and I'm sure most of us have eaten a Mary Lee's donut at some point in our lives. And they are quite good. However,...

We tasted at Baum's Fine Pastries, Ambrosia Bakery, Maxwell's Market, and Gambino's Bakery. Read through to see how each one scored and who had our favorite! Here's the scale we used from lowest to highest: :( :? :| :) :D Baum's Fine Pastries Baum's was our first stop, and their chocolate chip cookies were exactly...
