Chicken Soup for the Soul Honey Mustard BBQ sauce review

chicken soup for the soul 

I love a good BBQ sauce and this meal I whipped up with the new Chicken Soup for the Soul Honey Mustard BBQ sauce was so quick and yummy it is something that is going to become a regular in our house! 

Here are all the Chicken Soup for the Soul’s line of BBQ sauces:

  • Classic – Big, bold and smoky barbecue sauce—a perfect blend to add to all your favorite recipes
  • Buffalo - A soulful blend of hot and sweet—a vibrant, zesty flavor for the grill and beyond (gluten free)
  • Honey Mustard - A zesty, smoky barbecue sauce with just the right amount of mustard for tangy sweetness (gluten free)
  • Sweet Chipotle Bourbon - A fiery hot and creamy smooth barbecue sauce that brings any dish to life (gluten free) 

I don’t know about you but I use BBQ sauces all year long, not just during the summer.  

For this recipe, all I did was cook some chicken then shred it. If you want to know how I shred my chicken in 1 minute, check out this video here! It’s life changing!

 Screen Shot 2014-09-28 at 6.49.42 PM 

Once you shred your chicken, put the chicken in a sauce pan and pour over BBQ sauce. Heat until it’s warm then serve over bread! So easy. This meal was ready in no time and so delicious with the help of Chicken Soup for the Soul BBQ Sauce.

Spin Master Air Hogs Vectron Wave Review

 This post was made possible by Double Duty Divas and Old Spice. I was compensated for my participation in this campaign, but all opinions are 100% mine.

air hog 

This is my boys newest obsession. It’s called the Spin Master Air Hogs Vectron Wave. The Air hog has Wave Control™ altitude-sensing technology  which allows it to rise up and hover over any hard surface or use your hand to let it hover over your hand. There is no remote control required and is definitely going to go on my christmas must have list!

Features:

  • Altitude-sensing technology allows the Vectron Wave to rise up and hover over your hand or any other surface
  • Use the attachable catch sticks and toss it with a friend to play catch
  • Made from durable high-density foam for extra durability
  • For indoor use, ages 8 years and older.

The Air Hog puts off some serious fan motion so my boys were a little nervous about putting their hands under it. I let my hand hit the fan while it was going and it didn’t really hurt but I had the idea for them to put on some thin gloves. After that, they couldn’t get enough! It helped them not be nervous and they literally they played with it all day. I loved hearing their squeals and giggles and it flew around the house.

Go here to check it out!

I thought the Air Hog was super light and easy to play with. This is a toy that will keep your kids occupied for hours or at least until the batteries run out.

The Air Hog comes with a charger so you put batteries in the charger then charge the Air Hog with it. It only takes about 30 minutes to charge and has lights that reflect whether it is charged or not. 

It comes in 3 colors which is blue, red and orange. I would go ahead and buy one now before they sell out before christmas.

SportsTek Lightwear 4 in 1 Multifunction LED Headlamp Review


tek   

For my husband’s birthday I was so excited to get this 4 in 1 headlamp in for review because I knew he would absolutely love it!

The SportsTek Lightwear 4-in-1 LED Headlamp HASMulti-Function CapabilitIES. It is an  Outdoor/Indoor lamp, Water Resistant, 220 Lumens, Zoomable  which is great for Hiking, Biking, Kids, Reading, Military, Camping, Grilling, Backpacking, Auto Repair & More. Provides Safety and Security – Fits Around Head, Helmet, Bike or Belt. Can also be used as a spotlight and place on a desk, countertop or floor.

To be honest I needed a flashlight light night because I was inspecting my kids teeth. I can never find flashlights but spotted the head lamp on my dresser and it doubled as a teeth inspector as well! My kids thought I was so funny putting that on to look at how good they brushed their teeth but it sure did do the job!

IMG_5408 IMG_5405 IMG_5414

My husband is an avid hunter and has been looking for a good head lamp for a while now. He was super impressed with this headlamp. Not only with the power of the light but also how it fit. You defiantly want a head lamp that is comfortable to wear. 

This is the cadillac of head lamps so if you are looking for an awesome high performance headlamp, check this one out. My husband is always on the lookout for great outdoor gear and this is a great addition to his gear!

Go here to shop for one on amazon!

Disney Junior Jake and the Neverland Pirates Party

 This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone.jake pirates 

My son is turning 7 and with the help of Disney Junior and Jake and the Neverland Pirates, we are celebrating in pirate style!

In our family, we have 4 kids and with everything we do during the day, sometimes I feel I don’t get as much 1 on 1 time with each child as I would like to, especially with a baby in the house. I crave those moments when I can make my kids feel special. And birthdays in our house are a huge deal. We have decided in our family to celebrate each child’s birthday for an entire week! That doesn’t mean we have to spend tons of money on every event, but each day for a week, we do something special for that child. And this week it is for Solomon!

The first event was our annual family party! We normally have a family party, and depending on the year, a friends party too. I told my son we were going to have a family party. So I gathered up all of our goodies we rounded up at Walmart. 

It was actually pretty awesome because I took my 2 middle kids to Walmart to shop with me.  We had some special time together while picking out the party decorations for their older brother. They had the best time picking out all the goodies. I even let them pick out three prizes we would use in the Treasure Hunt during the party.

 photo 2  

All in all, I spent about $50 and that included the food. Walmart had everything I needed to make this party extra special. They also had Doc Mcstuffins and Sophia the First if you have a little girl celebrating their birthday soon!

And every Jake and the Neverland Pirates party is not complete without a parrot!

 IMG_5441  

A very easy idea for food is to grab some goldfish and chips and put them in a bowl and you have fish and chips.

IMG_5450  

And for the main dish we had some hearty meatballs we called Pirate Cannonballs! I found these gluten free turkey meatballs and the kids loved them!

IMG_5460 

During the party I asked Solomon what was his favorite thing about being 6 and what he is looking forward to doing when he is 7. After all the chatting and laughing, he turned to me and said, “Mom, this is the best birthday party every!” And I know he meant it! Sometimes a little planning and effort goes a long way with your little kids’ hearts!

It took me 30 minutes to shop for this party and 30 minutes to set up.  And now it will forever be something my Solomon will remember.

Spooky Wax Warmer review and giveaway!

wax  warmer 

I love a good candle but I am way to forgetful to burn them all the time. I always seem to leave them burning when we leave the house so I had to resort to using something that gives off just as much scent but more safe for my house with 4 kids!

If you haven’t used a wax warmer before, you should try one! These spooky halloween/fall theme wax warmers are literally my favorite thing right now!

Just in time for the fall and  halloween season, Halloween Forevermore just released these amazing wax warmers!

The one I was sent for review is call the boneyard jacks since my table is very fall themed at the moment but to be honest, they have such cute warmers, it was hard to decide! I really like this one below called “The Undertaker” and I know my kids would have loved the one that looks like a cute little ghost!

Screen Shot 2014-09-20 at 8.38.23 AM 

Get your order in quick because it’s almost time to start decorating for halloween and with the pumpkin themed warmer you can use it to decorate for fall now!

Go here to order one! 

warmer 

If you have never used a wax warmer, they have all the perks of a candle but less of the danger! All you do is plug in your warmer, and set a few of your wax cubes in the top of the warmer. Let the wax sit as the warmer heats up and it will melt the wax leaving a wonderful smell! There is less danger because there is no flame or fire invoked. Once you are done warming your wax, you can turn it off and the wax hardens again. When you are ready to warm more wax, just turn it back on and the warmer melts the wax again!

They don’t sell the wax’s to melt in your warmers and if you ask me, Scentsy is my favorite! Here is a few of the wax’s that would smell great in these warmers plus they are buy 5 get 1 free!

Screen Shot 2014-09-20 at 9.47.10 AM Screen Shot 2014-09-20 at 9.47.19 AM Screen Shot 2014-09-20 at 9.47.25 AM

I bought some wax about 4 years ago from Scentsy and I just used the last of it in my pumpkin warmer. I have used other wax’s and they don’t seem to last as long or smell as strong as the Scentsy wax’s! My friend Carolyn sells Scentsy so if you need some wax, shop here. 

Now for the giveaway! Welcome to the Halloween Forevermore wax warmer giveaway! Just enter the easy rafflecopter below for a chance to win a wax warmer of your choice!

Check out the wax warmer’s here to dream about the one you could choose if you win!

M&M fondant cookies to save the day, Captain America style!

 This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone.captain america cookies 

Captain America is about to be released so I had a hankering for some good ole fashion chocolate chip cookies to celebrate. But regular cookies weren’t good enough for such a special event, so I had to kick them up a notch! Instead of chocolate chips I used mini M&M’s that I bought at Walmart.

And you will never believe how super easy this fondant is to make and how delicious it is to eat.

1. First melt the marshmallows and water in a bowl in the microwave. Heat for 1 minute then see how much is melted. Heat in 15 second increments until melted.

IMG_5188 

2. This is what it will look like when you melt the marshmallows. 

There isn’t a magic measurement for the powdered sugar, you just need to add enough to where you can knead the marshmallows without it being to sticky.

IMG_5189 

3. The marshmallows will start to look like bread dough. Add enough to where you can knead it by hand.

IMG_5191 

4. Knead it a little then roll out with a rolling pin so you can start cutting out the shapes.

IMG_5192 

5. I cut out my white shapes first then put them on a wax paper. Don’t leave them on there long because they can be hard to get off. 

 IMG_5193 

6. Separate the leftover fondant into 2 balls. Add red food coloring to 1 and blue to the other. Knead the dough until the color is spread throughout. 

 When you are folding in the coloring and kneading the fondant, it will become sticky so keep adding powered sugar. It’s ok if your colored fondant is a lighter color, I have a trick for that next!

IMG_5194 

7. Once you cut out all the shapes, you will notice they can have a little white film from the powdered sugar. All you have to do is get a tad bit of water on your hand. Dab a little water on the tops of the shapes and the white powder will disappear. Don’t add to much or they will get sticky. Let the pieces dry then you can assemble your cookies.

 I used biscuit cutters for the different sizes them a small star cookie cutter for the star in the middle.

Bake your cookies, then once they are cool, assemble your cookies. I put a red circle down first, then a white, then blue then a white star. Your kids will go wild over these super hero cookies. 

Plus here is a coupon you can use on a bag of M&M’s. 

Go here for the coupon!

Monk Fruit in the Raw

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Monk Fruit In The Raw. I received product samples to facilitate my post as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

monkfruit

I am still on my weight-loss journey but that doesn’t mean my sweet tooth has been curbed. I am a sugar addict and cannot live without my sweet tea. However, I had to give it up lately because the way I make sweet tea, it’s calorie central and ends up sabotaging my weight loss.

I am in LOVE with Monk Fruit In The Raw because it’s an all natural sugar alternative that is even sweeter than sugar so I can use less of it, still get the sweet taste of my favorite sweet tea with NO calories!

I love trying sugar alternatives but they must be all natural or I won’t be a fan. 

For this recipe, I used my tried and true sweet tea recipe!

Monk Fruit in the Raw
Author: 
 
Ingredients
  • 7-8 tea bags
  • water
  • 1 cup of monk fruit in the raw
Instructions
  1. Boil a sauce pan of water, then turn it off. Add the tea bag and let steep for 10 minutes.
  2. Put in a pitcher and add enough water to make it to the top.
  3. Stir in 1 cup Monk Fruit in the raw. (with normal sugar I use 2 cups so I get to use 1 less cup of sweetener with the monk fruit).

 Go here for more information. 

September is Childhood obesity month and in observation of this awareness initiation, I am going to craft more of my recipes with healthy sugar alternatives like Monk Fruit In The Raw. My kids have a sweet tooth like I do and I don’t think they will notice a difference if I swap out recipes that call for regular sugar with Monk Fruit In The Raw. 

I love that Monk Fruit In The Raw is a wholesome, zero calorie sweetener made from real fruit! I am a fan of products that have real ingradients in them and I feel good using these foods with my kids.

You can buy this product in a bag or in a box that holds individual packets. You can use the bagged Monk Fruit In the Raw and measure it just like you would sugar but I found I could use less and still get the sweet taste that I am used to. I thought there was a little different taste then regular sugar but it was a welcome difference not a bad one in the least. I know some sugar alternatives can leave a after taste but I loved the taste of Monk Fruit In The Raw.

If you want more recipes or ideas for ways to use Monk Fruit In The Raw, go here. If your looking for an all natural sugar alternative, this is definitely a product you should buy.
