If if you haven’t heard me rave about my beloved air fryer, let me tell you a little about it… Frying without oil? Yes, it’s possible with an air fryer. How do air fryers work? Air fryers swirl air very quickly in a circular…

As you guys might member, I’m a huge fan of the sunglasses from Kohv. Last summer, the brand sent Mal and me a few pairs to try, and we were immediate fans of them! Kohv just launched a bunch of new styles on their website last month, so we’re teaming up for this blog post and an awesome giveaway below as well as a Kohv sunglasses discount code! Seriously, you don’t want to miss it! The brand…

Good morning! So, there’s a lot to celebrate: Tomorrow (February 3rd) is National Carrot Cake Day as well as the day that I started Carrot ‘N’ Cake TEN (yes, a whole decade) years ago. (I figured I should publish this post a day early since not everyone reads on the weekend.) I didn’t even realize the coincidence until a couple of years after I wrote my first blog post, but I feel like it was definitely meant to be! First…

I recently partnered with General Mills Big G Cereals to help support the #ButFirstWholeGrain challenge, asking me to increase my whole grain consumption in September. Read on to see how I incorporated whole grains into my daily meals and snacks!  The Haupert family is officially back-to-school! Mal is a teacher, so school started for him right after Labor Day. Quinn is back at full-time preschool, and I’m happy to have a schedule that allows me to work…

There’s a lot to celebrate today! It’s National Carrot Cake Day as well as the day that I started Carrot ”˜N’ Cake EIGHT years ago. I guess it was just meant to be! My life now is so different from the day that I published my very first post… 2/3/2008: I lived with Mal in a small one-bedroom apartment just outside Boston. I worked full-time at the Harvard School of Public Health. I was newly engaged and wanted…

The other day, I received a question from another blogger asking about giveaway etiquette. Hey Tina! Do you have any posts on Giveaway “etiquette”? I just received some free goodies and was thinking about doing one on my blog. I really don’t have many followers, but if I do one not sure exactly how to go about it. I’ve written all sorts of blogging posts over the years, but not one about giveaways, so I…

Good morning! Happy Monday! I have a fun giveaway to start your week off on the right foot! Over the weekend, Mal and I hung a new chalkboard from Wayfair. com in our kitchen. Of course, Murphy wanted to help. Wayfair recently contacted me about reviewing one of their products and hosting a giveaway on CNC. Wayfair is a Boston-based company that sells “ a zillion things home,” so I figured a post and giveaway…

Mmm… cheesecake! Obviously, all of this talk about sugar calls for a cheesecake giveaway. Makes perfect sense to me! 😉 Last week, the nice people at Eli’s Cheesecake Company sent me a couple of their Candy Bar Cheesecakes to sample. All I have to say is holy yum! Seriously, it was the most amazing cheesecake experience! Now, it’s your chance to win a fancy-schmancy cheesecake! Eli’s has offered to giveaway one cheesecake from their website…

That’s right, bloggies! Carrots ”˜N’ Cake turns 2 years old today! My first blog post was on the afternoon of February 3, 2008. I can’t believe that I’ve been blogging for two years! Time flies when you’re having fun! 😉 It’s even harder to believe that I have photographed just about every meal that I’ve eaten for 2 years! That’s a lot of photos! In the past year, Carrots ‘N’ Cake has come a long…
