Disclosure: I’m part of the Finish Power & Free Alliance of Moms and received complimentary product samples to facilitate this review, as well as compensation. The opinions expressed here are my own. Here in the Northeast, our year started off with a flurry of snowstorms and bone-chilling temperatures sparked by the ubiquitous Polar Vortex. While my family loves winter activities such as cross-country skiing and snowshoeing, we also enjoy hunkering down with a hearty meal in front of a roaring fire when the temperatures plummet and winds begin howling. Food plays an enormous role in our lives. So much so that my husband and I view both cooking and eating as significant activities. In fact, as 2014 began, I resolved to cook more hearty vegetarian fare at least once a week and when the air turned frigid, I used it as an opportunity to explore more soups and stews.

Boston Celtics, Boys & Girls Club & Nesquik
Mom Central received complimentary tickets to attend this Celtics game. All opinions are our own. As every Bostonian knows, we love our sports in this city. The contagious energy, the roaring of a crowd, nothing beats watching our teams play in this city. Recently, some of the Mom Central team had the pleasure of attending a Celtics game where we learned all about Nesquik’s ongoing partnership with the Boys & Girls Club of America. With the goal of reinforcing the importance of fun and daily physical activity for kids, Nesquik has partnered with professional sports teams and chapters of the Boys & Girls Club to help drive this mission home.

Wilton Ametale Fish Grilling Pan
Mom Central received a Wilton Armetale Fish Grilling Pan during a recent visit to the 2014 International Home & Housewares Show in Chicago. All opinions are our own. With temperatures rising and the sun staying out longer, it’s a great time of year to entertain guests. Whether it’s a backyard BBQ or a family dinner party, I always strive to have all the bases covered when it comes to cooking supplies. I recently discovered the Wilton Armetale Fish Grilling Pan from JCPenney that I cannot wait to use. It’s perfect for both casual and upscale entertaining.
claritin minnie driver
Mom Central attended an event for Claritin and Rails-to-Trails to facilitate this post. All opinions are our own. It’s hard to believe that there are people who may not share in the excitement of the temperatures warming, the trees turning green, and the flowers blooming. But for the nearly 75 million allergy sufferers in America, this time of year doesn’t always call for celebration when it comes with red, itchy eyes, runny noses, and more.

Mom Central received a Herbal Concepts Fan Shoulder Wrap to facilitate this review. All opinions are our own. I’m prone to getting tight muscles, kinks and spasms in my neck, lucky me! It’s the place where I tend to hold most of my stress. The discomfort usually creeps in over time, and takes some time to have the pain get better. While taking some ibuprofen helps, the other magic solution is heat. But the question becomes how can you carry on a regular day, at the computer, helping the kids, or running errands with a heating pad that won’t stay in place? The other morning I woke up with a horrible kink in my neck. I was so afraid to move in any way since I didn’t want the pain and discomfort to get worse. Getting dressed and drying my hair were a bit of a challenge, but I had to get to work but I was so afraid the pain and twinge in my neck was going to get worse. I thought I had a heating pad at the office, but it wasn’t at my desk. Thankfully, my colleague had a Herbal Concepts Fan Shoulder Wrap for me to use. It literally saved me!
