Mastermind – Crack the Code to Win Codemaker vs Codebreaker

Mastermind

When I was around 9 or 10 I played my first game of Mastermind. When I was given the opportunity to review this newer edition from Pressman Toy, I was excited to share and play a game that I played as a kid with my daughter and husband.

Creamy 3 Cheese Zucchini Lasagna

Zucchini Lasagna

Everybody needs to have their fair share of vegetables as part of living healthy. For a while now, I have been incorporating veggies into our meals so it isn’t noticeable to my hubby who isn’t big on them.

Last summer, I picked up a Chocolate Banana Loaf at the local Farmer’s Market. While I  loved it, … Continue reading
