Real Chocolate Cough Medicine: Dr. Cocoa Relief with a Smile">Post image for <span id=Real Chocolate Cough Medicine: Dr. Cocoa Relief with a Smile" />

Anyone who has children is well aware of how much ‘fun’ it can be to get them to swallow or even get close to a dose of cold medicine and being that it is Winter, we have already had a few rounds of the common cold going around.

In fact, I clearly remember my Mom having to basically shove the spoon of the awful tasting medicine in my mouth so I could get some relief and rest.

Luckily, there is a now a new option called Dr. Cocoa that, by the name alone, will intrigue some children enough to try it. And once you tell them that ‘Yes, there is real chocolate’ in the syrup, you can bet they will stop putting up a fuss. I guess that is why one of their sayings Dr. Cocoa™ can help parents fight the cold, not the child.

So far, we have used two of the three formulas, the daytime, and nighttime cough + cold relief and let me tell you, Dr. Cocoa’s soothing, real-cocoa formula was developed to improve dosing compliance among children – it triggers a smile, not a struggle.

Dr. Cocoa™ for Children comes in three patented formulas*:
o Dr. Cocoa™ Long-Acting Cough Relief: relieves coughs for up to eight hours without causing drowsiness.
o Dr. Cocoa™ Daytime Cough + Cold Relief: relieves stuffy nose and cough.
o Dr. Cocoa™ Nighttime Cough + Cold Relief: Made to relieve coughs, along with stuffy nose, runny nose and sneezing at night.

Slow Cooker Sriracha Roast Beef Chili Recipe">Post image for <span id=Slow Cooker Sriracha Roast Beef Chili Recipe" />

I know what you are thinking.

What am I going to do with all this leftover roast beef?

That’s not what you are thinking? How about what am I going to do with this extra pork, chicken, turkey? (You can adapt this recipe to use any protein really.)

When my husband said he was going to use roast beef for chili, I thought he was a bit off his rocker but heck, if he was going to cook dinner, I was going to keep quiet.

Guess what? It was great! So great, that I wanted to share it with you.

Don’t you like how we ‘kicked it up a notch’?

Raise your hand if your children have a smartphone on their Christmas list this year. Yup, I thought so. Like you, my husband and I have been having the ‘Do we want the kids to have a phone?’, ‘Is this the right age?’, ‘What rules do we set?’ and ‘How do we monitor the activity?’ […]
