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...
