THE ROCK FATHER loves Mac & Cheese, so he would’ve written about KRAFT Macaroni & Cheese Dinner even if it wasn’t a sponsored post for Socialstars #Youknowyouloveit

As parents there are quite a few traditions that my wife and I have carried over from our own childhoods, putting a modern spin on them and sharing with our daughters. Most of those things could be considered more pop-cultural - the movies, the toys, the games but there aren’t many of are traditions that involve food. On the surface, that might seem a little odd, both of us coming from relatively large extended families, rooted in food-centric cultures of Italian and German heritage. Times have changed, as have tastes. And what we know about the things we eat - but one childhood tradition that we have carried on is just about as American as they come and continues to get better with age: KRAFT Macaroni & Cheese Dinner.

THE ROCK FATHER is sharing #TheIndisposables in his life as part of a Schick® Xtreme3® sponsored series for Socialstars. Horns up! \m/ \m/

Ah, the summer months... a time for adventure, excitement, and of course, The Indisposables - those essential items that just help to make things better. For 2015, I'm highlighting just five new indisposable essentials that can be considered to be certified "Rock Father-approved" picks. If you're a regular reader, there's actually a good chance that these have already crossed your browser in a more subtle form as they've already become a part of our daily routine, and hopefully they'll soon be a part of yours as well!

I think it was last year that I said it (being nearly six years into parenting, things blur together), but I’d referred to the mid-year months as our “first true summer break.” Thing is, it’s not really a “break” at all. Gone are the true three-month runs of warm weather adventure that my wife and I knew as children - the ones filled with days that seemed to last forever. My first “back-to-school” pitches were hitting my office before June 1st, and the reality of the matter is that with kindergarten ending in June and the kids back at it in August, the summer is a blip, and a busy one at that.

With all the video that I do between this site, my YouTube Channel (over 3 million plays and counting!), and my responsibilities as an Artist Manager and Music Video Director, many are often surprised that I do not yet own a GoPro for my personal use. Truth is, that sometimes surprises even myself, and the arrival of the GoPro HERO + LCD at Best Buy just may be the added nudge I have to get shopping... for an item that's been at the top of my "must-buy" list for ages. Already the go-to location for the biggest selection of GoPro Cameras and Accessories, Best Buy has the GoPro HERO + LCD in-stock and ready to rock right now - a waterproof, 1080p HD Action Camera perfect for capturing those family moments all summer, or all year round. It's the perfect entry-level model for families on the go. Check out the specs:

There’s a lot of benefits to doing what I do, and the warmer months are where that largely becomes apparent. While the Rock & Roll Handbook clearly states that one should never wake up prior to noon, that’s doesn’t exactly work here, despite being “The Rock Father.” With my wife out the door at 6:30am and two little girls to get rolling for school, I’m up early - but working from home means that sometimes I can move “dinner” up a few hours, or just make something special for lunch. Grilled sausage at noon on a weekday, paired with KRAFT Macaroni & Cheese? That can happen.

THE ROCK FATHER™ has partnered with Life of Dad and STOUFFER’S® as a paid Ambassador for the #FitKitchen promotion. As always, opinions are that of James Zahn, though sometimes influenced by his kids.

THE "WINGMAN": Over the years, that term has meant many things to many people, often conjuring images of action - "Top Gun" fighter pilots flanked by other members of their squadron, heading into battle... or sometimes it's that same level of back-up while vying for the attraction of another - like the silly friend in a romantic comedy. Here in Illinois (especially this close to Chicago), it's a totally different life movie, and sometimes a good Wingman is simply an "associate" - something I can assure you that I know nothing about. No matter what the specifics, being a Wingman means being there for support, and right now I have a new Wingman here in my kitchen at Rock Father HQ - STOUFFER’S® Fit Kitchen Meals. Now, if you've been following me on Instagram (and if you're not, it would be a lot cooler if you did), you've probably seen one of the #AtTheGym selfies I've been posting late at night over the past 18 months. I've been on a mission to get into better shape, and eating better is a big part of that. That's where STOUFFER’S® Fit Kitchen steps-up to assist...
