Perfect Bar Review- a Fresh Protein Bar with no Preservatives

image

I was given the opportunity to try out the Perfect Bar- it's a new protein bar that is so fresh it has to be refrigerated! I was really eager to give them a shot, so when they arrived in their box, still cold thanks to the packaging and ice pack that they shipped it with, I didn't waste any time popping one open and trying it out. They sent one of every flavor- Fruit and Nut, Cranberry Crunch, Almond Coconut (Vegan!!!), Almond Butter (both a regular size and a 100 calorie mini bar), Peanut Butter (both a regular size and a 100 calorie mini bar), … [Read more...]

My Adventures with #BoursinCheese

boursin-1

I received this product for free from Smiley360 in exchange for my honest review. As always, all opinions are my own I have always loved Boursin cheese. I saw it at Costco once and I told my husband that I had to have it. To be fair, I was six months pregnant at the time and I really wanted some crackers. So when I was offered the chance to throw a little cheese get together, I was super happy. I could not wait! I decided to try Boursin Garlic & Herbs Spreadable Cheese and Boursin Shallot & Chive Gournay Cheese. Boursin is a creamy, … [Read more...]

BeanBox Coffee Subscription Service- affordable gourmet coffee straight to your door!

I rarely rave about things, but this is going to be one of those rare occasions. BeanBox sent me a box of their fresh-roasted artisan Seattle-sourced coffee to sample and whoa Nelly, I was blown away. I have completely redefined how I view coffee now. Seriously. I was absolutely delighted to see their cute little box of coffee beans sitting on my doorstep. BeanBox packaged four VERY freshly roasted varieties of coffee beans for me to sample. And when I say FRESHLY roasted I really mean it- the roasting dates on the packages were less than a week … [Read more...]

Eatsmart Precision Elite Thermocouple Food Thermometer

eatsmart-precision-elite-3

I try not to be too over the top about food safety- I take sensible precautions about washing my produce and baking things as directed. But when it comes to cooked meats, it's vital to make sure I hit the correct internal temperature to make sure the food is both delicious and safe to serve to my kids!  I recently had the pleasure of trying out the Eatsmart Precision Elite Thermocouple Food Thermometer while making BBQ pork on my backyard grill. It was SO NICE to actually KNOW what temperature I was hitting! The Elite Precision Thermometer is … [Read more...]

Now that my husband has been laid out from his main job, we have been eating out less. He was hired to a different position but that still hurt us financially.  So now if we eat out, we need something that is not going to break the bank.  We recently heard about the new Ruby Tuesday's BOGO 50% entree coupon! It is good for two weeks after a person downloads it so I went ahead and got mine.  I can't wait to go try it out with my family because their kid's menu starts at $3.99. Ruby Tuesday is always my favorite place to go on my 'mom dates' with my … [Read more...]

My children play rough all day long and I can hardly keep up with them especially when it comes to cleaning up after them. I was sad when school started but only for a few days. I can finally get them to settle down for a bit. My sons especially act like they are Mr. Destructo when they play.  They are also really mean to each other. I don't know how many … [Read more...]

Staying Healthy this Summer with Lifeway Foods #KefirCreations

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and it’s advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #KefirCreations #CollectiveBias My household used to eat really unhealthy. My husband would go out to eat every single day at lunch. I used to go out to eat often with the kids and when we were home it wasnt much better.  We went through a ton of junk food at my house. It was actually really expensive to eat that way and I have no idea why people say its cheaper to eat out when it is just one or two people eating.  So I decided a few … [Read more...]

“I participated in a Blogger Activation on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Stonyfield. I received coupons to facilitate my shopping trip and a promotional item to thank me for participating.”Like most parents I live in a whirlwind of activities. I never manage to get anything done on time because every single time I schedule myself some time to work it is also time for a doctors appointment or a visit to the orthodontist (who steals all my money) or even an impromptu visit to Mawmaw because she wants to see us and I am entirely too dependent on … [Read more...]

Making Milk More Delicious with MilkSplash

milksplash1

Do your kids enjoy milk? Like most children I know, my children are obsessed with milk.  My youngest son has always loved it and he always asks me every day if he can have some choc choc.  That is his word for chocolate milk.  He likes plain milk if we do not have chocolate syrup but he prefers choc choc.  Well, choc choc is FULL of sugar.  When I started trying to become more healthy I looked up the calories for the syrup and milk and it was over 300 calories for one cup of milk.  I told my husband that we had to cut back.  So when we were … [Read more...]
