If you have been following my blog lately, you know I have been trying to loose the baby weight from baby #4. I have lost a total of 75 pounds so far from the day I gave birth so it’s been a success so far, but I still have about 15 to go. I wanted to share with you one of my favorite meals I eat while loosing weight and I always have a box of   Success® boil in a bag rice on hand.

If your not trying to loose weight, this is still a great recipe to try but you can just put your favorite dressing on top or this dressing recipe here that is super yummy! 

For lunch and dinner I like to have a vegetable, starch and protein and sometimes I throw in a fruit if I am really hungry. 

This meal is so easy and quick to throw together and it actually makes 2 servings so what you don’t eat for 1 meal, you can pack up and eat the next day. 

All it is, is 1 pouch  of Success® Jasmine rice which only takes 8-10 minutes to cook. While you are boiling that, throw some chicken, corn, and honeydew or watermelon in a bowl and some ready make pico de gallo. I like to use a rotierrie chicken since it’s already cooked.

For my “dressing” I just sprinkle some salt and pepper, italian seasoning and a little lime juice all over all the ingredients after I throw the rice in. I love using Success rice when I am trying to loose weight because normally I go for bread when I am hungry but that never works out well on the scale but with Successs® boil in a bag rice, it makes me full without all the calories. 

Success® Jasmine Rice is the only boil-in-bag Jasmine rice available. It can be fully cooked rice in 10 minutes and is pre-portioned, BPA-free boil-in-bag means no mess, no measuring involved which is music to this busy mom’s ears! They also have a Basmati Rice flavor which  is the only boil-in-bag Basmati rice available so you should try out both flavors.

I was able to find both kinds of aromatic rice at Walmart. I tried looking at my local supermarket but they didn’t carry it but Walmart did. I was even able to look up the jasmine rice online at Walmart’s website and I could tell which store around me carried it.

Lay n Go review


lay n go  

When I received this lay-n-go lite in the mail, I knew who just to give it to! My amazing nephews! They are lego lovers and my sister told me about the Lay n go products a while back because she already had some in her house! I don’t even buy legos for my kids because they seem to loose all the pieces and it’s just to much of a mess. But with the lay n go system you can set all the legos on this round piece of fabric, they pull the side up to conveniently store your legos or any other toys for that matter!

IMG_4375 

This one below is the large lay-n-go my sister already had at her house so you know she loves these products! Can you believe how many legos this can hold??!

IMG_4371 IMG_4372 

IMG_4374  

The lay n go features 3 sizes:

*. The LITE (18″) is reversible and perfect for life on the go
*. The LARGE (5′) features inside pockets & shoulder strap
*. The LIFESTYLE (44″) features inside pockets and back pack styling

My sister said the lay-n-go lite is grey for legos but it is also great for storing toys for her little one. So when she is packing up for church, she can throw some of Rex’s toys into the lay and go! IT’s the perfect size for some of his little toys. 

The lay n go products are washable and wipeable so if they get dirty, it is no problem! 

Go here to shop!

3 ingredient Peanut Butter cookie recipe


peanut butter  cookies  

I am a fan of quick and easy recipes and if they involve cookies, I am hooked! This is one of my favorite recipes my sister shared with me a long time ago! It’s 3 ingredient peanut butter cookies and in a pinch I can have these made within 15 minutes!

I had to try out my new stainless steel measuring cups anyway so I decided I whip these up! These stainless steel measuring cups reminded me of the measuring cups my late grandmother used. They look like the exact ones so it brought back sweet memories of me and her cooking in her kitchen together! I love that they are heavy duty because I know they will last a long time!

Check out this recipe below! It’s sure to become a favorite in your house like it is in mine.

3 ingredient Peanut Butter cookie recipe
Author: 
Recipe type: Dessert
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 8-10
 
Ingredients
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • extra sugar for sprinkling on top
Instructions
  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix all ingredients and roll into balls into cookie sheet.
  3. Press down with a fork for a criss cross pattern and bake for 8-10 minutes.

 When making these cookies, make sure you measure out your sugar first, then your peanut butter since the peanut butter is so sticky, it would be hard to deal with if you dip up the sugar after the peanut butter. 

IMG_5080 

You will want to flatten out your cookies a little with a fork since they don’t spread out very much when they bake. If you skipped this step you will be eating peanut butter balls instead :-)

3 ingrediant cookies 

I have owned lots of measuring cups over the years. In fact I have 2 sets of plastic ones and a silicone set in my drawer right now. So basically I have to get so many sets because they keep wearing out but with these stainless steel ones, they can replace all 3 of my other sets! A set of 6 nesting measuring cups in mls and cups engraved on the handle and side of the cup so markings will never rub off. It has a pouring lip so they are great for liquids and solids. 

These have become my new favorite measuring cups!

Go here to shop for your own measuring cups!

My new favorite brush! The Crave Naturals detangling brush!


Screen Shot 2014-08-18 at 2.57.34 PM Screen Shot 2014-08-18 at 2.57.44 PM 

My daughter and I have the same curly hair. I have let my hair really grow out and it is super long but you know what that means for a curly headed lady? Tons of tangles! I must spend at least 15 minutes just brushing my hair after a shower. There are normally a billion tangles and not only does it hurt my tender head to brush them out, but normal brushes also pull out lots of my hair.

I told my husband if I did not find a remedy I would have to drastically cut my hair because my hair wouldn’t look good long anymore if I had barely any left!

I love the Crave naturals glide through detangling brush! It not only helps me comb out my tangles but it seems to pull less of my hair out! I also use it on my little girl and instead of it becoming a cry fest when I got to comb out her hair, she doesn’t even flinch anymore! 

Go here to shop for one! 

The only problem with this brush is I can never find it because we all use it so I need to get another one for our household! 

You can use it on wet or dry hair and it’s good on regular hair and extensions! I have a few extensions in my closet that are tangled in a hot mess so I need to get to working on them with this brush!

I really love this brush so if you have tangle problems like me or you or your little ones have a tender head, this is a great brush to try out.
