Gluten Free Cornbread while Camping

Note:  I own this piece of camping equipment.  I was not compensated for this review. 

While camping in July 2013, we tried out a new piece of gear.  We had just purchased a Camp Chef Camping Outdoor Oven with 2 Burner Camping Stove.

One night, we had stew for dinner with cornbread.  Yes, cornbread.  Fresh-out-of-the-oven cornbread at the campsite.  Talk about the comforts of home!

We had a couple of friends camping with us.  They were eager to help us determine if the oven really did justice to my cornbread.  Oh, did it ever!

We found the oven to be a great asset for our camping gear.  We have continued to use this oven as a family since.

Please share your cooking experiences while camping!

I had been told I would be receiving samples of the entire product line.  I was not expecting the size of box I received.  I have loved being able to sample the different bars with my husband and four boys.  Guests in our home who have sampled the bars said they were good, did not taste “different” (since the bars are Certified Gluten Free), and were indeed healthy.

So many varieties of bars to choose from…

I like these bars as they are high in protein.  Sometimes it is difficult for me to get my boys (or myself) to want a snack with protein.  These bars are great!  We can grab one on the way out of the house.  Or eat one when we are tempted to graze the kitchen.

This photo below is of my third son holding his latest bar.  This is the NoGii “Nuts About Berries” Paleo Bar which he said was “Yummy!”

Motivate Your Child Action Plan

 Motivate Your Child Action Plan {Book review}

Note:  This is a sponsored post.  I was provided a copy of the book, Motivate Your Child Action Plan, and monetary compensation for my time to read the book and write the review.  This post contains affiliate links.  For more details, please see my Disclaimers.  

I have four children.  Four boys.  Since I have had four, I have felt I have most things “parent-child” related under control.

I applied to do the review for Motivate Your Child Action Plan by Dr. Scott Turansky and Joanne Miller, RN, BSN, to see what suggestions might be offered for the “teenage years” which my oldest two are in or will be shortly.

I really appreciate the tone of the authors and how it is more of a workbook for the struggling parent than a “you have been parenting wrong all of these years” approach.  The later type of parenting “guide” really does not set well with me.  In fact, those types of books are the ones I put down never to read again.

I have read Motivate Your Child Action Plan and do plan to read it again and again.  The stories of parents and children alike with their struggles and successes were heartwarming and encouraging.  Each chapter build on the previous ones and walk you through which steps to take and when – or when not to take.

Since reading this book, I have noticed more of how I act (and react) to my children.  I need to work on myself some and I know Motivate Your Child Action Plan can help me focus on the areas which will benefit myself and my children the most.

I found while reading this book looking back on my own childhood and recognizing how things played out versus how they could have played out.  I have also been recalling past situations with my own children to determine how to better our family life in the future.

I look forward to reading this again with each son in mind.  I have put some of the suggestions to practice and they do work!  This motivates me to read this book again to learn more about how I can improve our family.

I know I will be able to pick up this book late at night to search its pages for answers on how to help me Motivate My Child and myself to be more positive and loving.  I guess you could say it is like having a family counselor in the home for those questions you just want some advice on here and there.

I hope you will check out Motivate Your Child Plan and pass this along to those friends and family members who might need some positive parenting encouragement.  This book is available from the book’s website or from Amazon.
