Up until now, Real Sports Bar & Grill and the Toronto Blue Jays shared some uncanny qualities. Both are well known brands and ongoing support for these entities are due to hopes for a positive experience. But instead, we end up with subpar sentiments -- the former with drab & dismally made bar food and the latter with season after disappointing season.

Would it be such a hardship to end the practice of snack sign-up in favor of everyone bringing their own snack? That way, parents who love Kool-Aid and cookies are free to stuff their kids with garbage. Telling my kids to decline snack at the end of practice is always an option, but I don't feel like my kids should have to be put in that position.

I've always loved kettle corn: popcorn with the perfect combination of salty and sweet! Popcorn, after all, is a whole grain -- and though it gets a bad reputation at the movie theaters, homemade popcorn can be a light, healthy and delicious snack that satisfies those munchies. I decided to add a holiday twist to this batch of kettle corn by sprinkling it with a combination of spices that give it a nice warm gingerbread taste. You can also add other ingredients like a drizzle of chocolate, dried fruit, and shredded coconut.

A traditional Pumpkin Scone from Starbucks has 480 calories, 17 g fat, 78 g of carbs, 43 g of sugar and 6 g protein. Sigh...that's like having a couple of chocolate bars.
