#Things Everyone Needs To Know About Military Children

I’m usually known for posting food related content here on the blog, however, I would like to take a break from that this week to write about something that is near and dear to my heart.  The month of April has been deemed “the month of the military child.”  As some of you know, I am a military spouse AND a military brat. I was born and raised inside the walls of military posts, looking up to soldiers like my father.  It wasn’t long after college when I chose to marry into the very lifestyle that shaped who I am. I consider myself very lucky to have been able to experience things from the point of view as a child, and now from the point of view of a spouse.

Throughout my childhood and well into my years of motherhood , I have come to the realization that children who grow up within the walls of the military posses certain characteristics that make them unique to their civilian counterparts.  Since April is the month of the military child, I would like to share with you a few things that everyone needs to know about these special kids that I have grown to love.

Cheesy Chicken & Broccoli Dip {Old London Foods}


A few months ago, I was contacted by Old London Foods to test out some of their delicious products and create a unique recipe for their website.  

Who is Old London Foods?  They are the brilliant minds behind the products Melba Toast, Bagel Chips, and J J Flats Flatbread.  

When they asked me to pick out which product I wanted to review, I felt like a kid in a candy store.  Mainly because there were so many wonderful flavor combinations.  Do I go with Melba Toast Sesame?  Or do I try their J J Flats 7 Grain?  In the end, I ended up choosing their J J Flats Everything Flatbread.
