March 30, 2017 l Topics:BBQ Grills l By K&N Sales Staff

There is nothing like an old-fashioned crawfish boil to remind us just how handy an outdoor kitchen is for entertaining. As delicious as those little mudbugs might taste, the lingering odor when boiled indoors is not always particularly welcome! Imagine having the ability to transport all of that “fragrant” cooking outdoors—think chili, curry, seafood—forever.

Holiday Decorations Guide

November 25, 2013 l Topics:Blogs l By kn

Viewing Christmas lights.  You may have begun the tradition as a kid with your parents.  Or maybe you have decided to start a new tradition with your family.  Whatever kind of Christmas light viewer you may be, numerous neighborhoods around the Houston area offer a viewing experience to make the holidays extra special.

 

Before you load up the car and head to the lights, remember to  mix up a batch of hot apple cider or hot cocoa on the stove.  What could be better than listening to Christmas music on the radio and drinking a warm treat while looking at houses decorated for the season?

 

River Oaks

 

Homes along River Oaks Boulevard and those streets nearby offer white lights wrapped around majestic oak trees.  Large ornaments and LED lights adorn the houses as well.  Be sure to see the homes on Bellmeade and Inwood.

 

Shepherd Park and Candlelight Park

 

This kid friendly neighborhood includes arches over the streets and inflatables in the yards.  One street includes a trip to Christmases Around the World.  Sidewalks make walking through the area possible if the weather permits.  The best place to start viewing in this neighborhood is north of 43rd Street and East of Ella Boulevard.

 

Woodland Heights

 

This year’s Lights in the Heights festivities are scheduled for December 14.  However, the decorations are viewable in this neighborhood through Christmas.  The largest concentration of decorations can be seen on Bayland and Woodland Streets.

The Houston Zoo

This year Christmas lights are returning to the Hermann Park area.  The Houston Zoo is beginning a new tradition this winter with Zoo Lights. Attendees will see the zoo transformed into a winter wonderland with lights, snacks and decorations.  Many animals will be viewable during the evening event which runs through the new year.  An admission fee is required.

 

Wherever you are in Houston, enjoying some Christmas lights is certain to get you in the holiday mood. After enjoying the lights, if you find yourself looking for simple ways to spread more of the season in your home, we talked here about a few ideas that will help you.

Healthy Afternoon Snacks

0 Comments
September 2, 2013 l Topics:Blogs l By kn

School is back in session and everything kicks off in full swing, which can make it a challenge to maintain healthy eating habits. Swinging by McDonalds with the kids, ordering in a pizza and stocking the freezer with quick bites like Tostito’s Pizza Rolls can certainly be tempting for the busy parent this time of year. However, eating right can improve your children’s chances of excelling in school, making responsible decisions and, of course, their general physical well being. We will touch on how healthy eating benefits your children much more than just their physical health and what you can do to create nourishing after school snacks.

 

Set the Stage  

 

 It is important to set the stage for healthy eating habits for children while they are young for a number of reasons. Teach your children to try different foods and eat a balanced diet because when they grow older you will not always be there to guide them on what they should eat.

 

Benefits

 

Some foods have amazing benefits. According to Janice Baranowski, a pediatric behavioral nutritionist at Baylor University of Houston, eating habits can affect your child’s concentration and increase their performance in school. For instance, berries are said to improve concentration. Deficiencies in iron can be the cause of low energy levels in your children, so don’t forget to serve them some beef and poultry on a regular basis. Click here to learn more about how healthy eating can affect your children’s life.

 

Afternoon Delight

 

A great way to encourage your children to eat in a healthy manner is to involve them in food preparation. Perhaps you can set up a “Cooking Show” as Aimee, Editor at Simple Bites, did with her daughter and some friends. Preschoolers will enjoy creating Frogs on a Log, plus it’s full of nutrients. All ages will enjoy baking this simple, yet tasty Zucchini Bread with chocolate chips.

 

K&N Sales has the latest cooking appliances to update your kitchen for the start of a new school year. Stop by our showroom or visit us online to find appliances that will make cooking with your little ones just that much easier!
