Stovetop Savior: Bruschetta Spaghetti Recipe {A 10-minute recipe}">Post image for <span id=Stovetop Savior: Bruschetta Spaghetti Recipe {A 10-minute recipe}" />

My schedule these days, as with most people, includes a full-time 8-5 (and more) days, getting kids up and off to school, cleaning the house, managing activities, etc. so I need simple, quick but healthy meal options. You did note that I wrote healthy right?

An easy way to up the health ante is to use avoid frying, use fiber-rich pastas and include plenty of fruit and vegetables in your meal plan. The pasta I am using in this dish is Dreamfields spaghetti because one cup of the cooked pasta  includes 5 grams of fiber and 7 grams of protein. But do not worry, the pasta has all the flavor and texture of traditional pastas.

Now before you go running to your kitchen to make this recipe, you should enter the Dreamfields family pack Giveaway! You can win one box of each 7 cuts of pasta and a $25 gift card to create your own healthy recipes!

To enter, simply leave a comment here telling me the one recipe from the Dreamfields website, you most want to try. One randomly selected winner will be chosen on Friday, November 7th.

For more chances to win, follow the Dreamfields and the #IHeartDreamfields hashtag on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest.

If you wish to add more protein to the meal, consider adding cooked chicken. If you wish to keep it vegetarian, add tofu or tempeh.

On the Road with Contour by Cox iPad App">Post image for <span id=On the Road with Contour by Cox iPad App" />

We are in month two of our Contour by Cox Communications  and thanks to the iPad app, my iPad is getting some serious usage. I showed the kids how, even when we are at Vovo’s house, we can make sure their favorite show is being recorded, and they went nuts.

You can see at the photo above that my son is on the iPad, but what you can’t see is that he is looking at other similar shows to the ones he has set to be recorded (he is really into the weather channel and geography shows). What do I mean you ask? The home screen of the app is personalized so it will show you some shows that you may like, based on your past selections. You can even just tap the show icon and watch a snippet.

Now you want to know what else you can do with the app? Well, the Contour Guide on your iPad the app can give you more information on a show, set your TV at home to record a show, and show you what is available to watch on your iPad or TV. Heck, this bad boy will even show you when some recommended shows are on.

And it doesn’t stop there because I played around with the Contour app one night and saw I can even see what programs are currently playing ‘on demand’. That comes in handy when I want to see what family friendly shows or movies are on without the kiddos knowing. If I find something that interests me, I can put it in my ‘Library’ on the ‘Watch List’.

Oh, in case you are wondering, the answer is yes, just like on your television, you can have multiple profiles on the app too! Notice in the photo above, that older sibling has come along bugging younger sibling about when she gets a turn to use her profile on the iPad app.

Speaking of our daughter, she has had some friends over to watch some shows that she and her friends have missed – looks like we will continue to host viewing ‘parties’
