Hershey’s S’mores Caddy

One of my daughter’s favorite snacks are S’mores. So when I seen this Hershey’s S’mores Caddy I just couldn’t pass it up! This caddy holds everything we need to take our S’mores with us wherever we go! Inside of this caddy there are three compartments which include a removable tray. The top part of the tray holds Hershey’s candy bars and graham crackers, while the bottom is designated for marshmallows. In total, this caddy holds 6 Hershey’s bars, one box of graham crackers, and one bag of jumbo marshmallows. Thats a lot of possible S’mores! The top of the box features an large handle, so every time my daughter wants to make her snack we just grab the box and head outside! This box is not only perfect for snacks at home, but we can also use it when we go camping! Everything we need for her favorite snack is always ready-to-go! I have never seen anything cuter, or more convenient than this Hershey’s S’mores Caddy!

The Hershey’s S’mores Caddy is available on Amazon.PicMonkey Collage.jpg

Sun Basket: Healthy Home Cooking Made Easy

As a working mom, I hardly ever have time to cook a healthy meal. Going to a local drive through is just so much quicker than going shopping for ingredients and cooking a full meal. At least that’s what I thought until I was introduced to Sun Basket. Sun Basket is the leading healthy meal kit delivery company that delivers pre-measured ingredients and easy-to-read recipes straight to my door! That means all I have to do is go online, pick my meals for the week, and Sun Basket does the rest! Sun Basket offers two menus which include a Classic Menu for 2-4 servings, and a Family Menu with 4+ servings. Of course I personally needed to order the Family Menu to feed my small army. This week I was amazed at the Menu options for my Family Plan. The Week of May 8th, I was offered Turkey Kebabs with Carrot-Snap Pea Salad and Lemon Couscous, Miso Ramen Bowls with Braised Tofu and Bok Choy, Two-bean Chili Mac ’n’ Cheese with Lime Yogurt, Vietnamese Steak Stir-fry with Jasmine Rice, or Sesame-crusted Chicken with Roasted New Potato Salad. I let my daughter choose our two meals for the week and she chose the Turkey Kebabs and the Sesame-crusted Chicken.

When my box arrived I was amazed at how neatly everything was packaged. Everything I needed to complete my meals were pre-measured and in the box along with the full recipes. We decided to try the Sesame-crusted Chicken first since that was my daughter’s first choice. The recipe was advertised as 4 servings, 520 Calories/Serving, and a 30 – 40 minute cook time. Along with the instructions, this meal came with nutrition facts as well as some tips to get the kids involved (toss the potatoes with oil before roasting, juice the lemon, mix the dressing, etc). Since this was my first Sun Box recipe, I must admit that I was a bit nervous of the outcome. I actually have very little cooking skills, and can barely boil an egg properly.

Much to my surprise, my completed meal looked exactly like the photo on the Sun Basket website! I was able to follow the instructions given and make a chef-worthy dish for my family! The instructions were extremely details and the pre-measured ingredients prevented me from making any mistakes! Although this was a big concern of mine, it was not the final test. My daughter, Kinsley, is extremely picky. Although she chose the recipe herself and helped prepare the meal, there was no telling whether or not she would actually eat it. *Insert long dramatic drumroll here* She ate EVERY BITE and then asked for seconds! I decided to save the recipe card so that I can recreate this recipe down the line because it was such a huge hit with everyone! Although this recipe was supposed to serve 4, we had quite a bit left over that I was able to save for my lunch the next day!PicMonkey Collage

We completed our Turkey Kebabs the next night (not pictured), and again it was a huge success. I can’t wait to see what recipes will be on the menu these next few weeks! Hopefully they will be as amazing as these first two were! My family will definitely be Sun Basket returning customers!

Graze Box

I have seen my fair share of subscription boxes, but I have never seen a HEALTHY subscription box! Instead of being filled with fattening sugary snacks, this box is filled with healthy alternatives!  Every snack in the box has a special benefit such as essential vitamins, minerals, and protein! Each snack is also boxed up in perfect portion controlled packs so I don’t have to worry about overeating.  I really love how Graze gives me the option to completely customize my box! If I don’t like a certain snack, I can simply trash it using their rating system and I will never be sent that snack again! Aside from their healthy snacks, their packaging is also super natural! Their cardboard boxes are made with 100% recyclable material, their booklets are 100% biodegradable, and their  skewers are made from untreated bamboo! This subscription box is fantastic from the inside out! In my box I received a pack of black pepper popcorn, original fruity flapjacks, sweet & spicy beet crunch, peanut butter & jelly, sesame garlic crunch, apple crumble, and peanut butter dippers. The original fruity flapjacks has to be my favorite product of the six, although all of them were huge hits. I ended up purchasing a 6 pack of the flapjacks from the Graze Box store! I can’t wait to see what I will get in my next box!

Go Organically Fruit Snacks

I am very cautious of what I feed my daughter, so we usually steer clear of the snack aisle. One of the only snacks I will feed my daughter Kinsley, is Go Organically Fruit Snacks. Go Organically Fruit Snacks are free of preservatives, artificial flavors, artificial colors, high fructose corn syrup, gluten, GMOs, and trans fat! All of these fruit snacks are made with real fruit juice and are excellent sources of Vitamins A, C & E! Kinsley’s favorite Go Organically Fruit Snacks are the tropical fruits (Tangerine, Strawberry-Kiwi, Mango, Pink Grapefruit, & Pineapple), however these snacks also come in fruit medley (Strawberry, Apple, Orange, Peach, & Cherry) and mixed berry (Raspberry, Blackberry, Strawberry, & Blueberry).  I feel good about giving Kinsley Go Organically Fruit Snacks because I know she is getting the best on the market!

National Picnic Day: Picnic Must-Haves

Did you know that April 23rd was National Picnic Day? Having little picnics with my daughter is one of our favorite mommy/daughter activities. There is nothing better than grabbing a blanket and sitting down with family to find out how their week is going. Plus, with such busy schedules my daughter really enjoys this one-on-one time every so often.  In honor of National Picnic Day, I will be sharing some of Kinsley and I’s favorite picnic-ready snacks. Take my advice, grab some snacks, and plan a family outing today!

Picnic-friendly products we’ve tried: 

Gaea Olive Snack Packs– Both my daughter and myself are obsessed with olives. These Gaea Olive Snack Packs are the perfect size for picnic baskets! Not only are they individually packaged, but they are resealable and liquid free! Kinsley and I can snack a bit, and then save the rest for later! Gaea Olive Snack Packs come in a wide variety of yummy flavors such as pitted green and pitted kalamata. These olives are all preservative free, reduced salt, and are completely organic! These are always a huge hit.

Gaea

Welch’s Fruit Snacks– What would a picnic be without Welch’s Fruit Snacks?!? We almost ALWAYS have a box of Welch’s snacks nearby. These snacks come in 10 different flavors such as Mixed Fruit, Berries N’ Cherries, and Island Fruits. My daughter and I both agree that Berries N’ Cherries are the #1 flavor, but my brother swears by the Tangy Fruit packs. All Welch’s Fruit Snacks are fat free, and gluten free.  They also have no preservatives and are a great source of Vitamin C and Vitamins A & E. These snacks are always a no-brainer for us!

Other picnic-friendly products you may enjoy: 

AquaBall– AquaBalls are preservative free and naturally flavored water. Sweetened with Stevia Leaf extract, these drinks are sugar free and have ZERO calories. These drinks come in flavors such as Berry Frost, Fruit Punch, Grape, and Strawberry Lemonade.  The kid-friendly bottles also come decorated with characters from lots of fun Disney and Marvel’s Avengers characters such as Rapunzel, Mickey, Olaf, and Captain America!

AquaBall

The Little Kernel– This popcorn is popped in 100% pure olive oil which makes them an overall healthier snack alternative. Each bag is gluten-free, non-GMO, dairy-free, kosher and certified whole grains. This popcorn comes in flavors like Naked, Truffle Sea Salt, Butter, Sweet & Salty, Pink Himalayan Salt, and White Cheddar. These bags are the perfect size for on-the-go and are only 150 calories per bag, so there is no question as to why these are on our picnic must-have list.

Family Movie Night with Kernel Season’s

What is better than family movie night? Family movie night with Kernel Season’s popcorn and popcorn toppings! Kernel Season’s has been one of my all-time favorites for many years now. I actually don’t eat popcorn unless I have at least one seasoning option (this often means carrying one or two seasons in my purse just in case)! Kernel Season’s has everything we could possibly need to enjoy a movie night! From actual popping corn, to toppings and additives….Kernel Season’s is the way to go!

20170417_175526.jpg

We were sent a variety of Kernel Season’s products including several popcorn seasonings (Butter, Ranch, Bacon Cheddar, Garlic Parmesan, Kettle Corn, Nacho Cheddar, White Cheddar), two Drizzle Brittles (caramel and chocolate), one bag of popping corn, a bottle of liquid movie theatre butter, and one can of butter spritzer. Although I have been using Kernel Season’s for a while now, I was surprised at the variety! They carry sweet, savory, spicy, cheesy, gooey, and crunchy which means there is literally something for everyone in the family! You can even mix and match flavors to create your own unique combinations!

20170417_180525.jpg

My daughter Kinsley and I couldn’t be more opposite when choosing our toppings. I preferred a combo of liquid movie theatre butter and ranch seasoning, while my daughter preferred caramel Drizzle Brittle and white cheddar (weird right?). Kinsley really enjoyed making her own flavor, and had such a hard time choosing from all of the options. She has requested popcorn every night for the past week, simply because she is so excited about trying new flavor combinations! Kernel Season’s is definitely a must-have for family movie nights everywhere!

Degustabox: April

This month’s Degustabox was filled with new and exciting new products that I have never seen before. I recognized a few products, but for the most part it was brands that I have never had the chance to try. In this month’s box I received a bottle of Nando’s Peri-Peri sauce ($5.99/bottle), a bag of Lovely Candy ($2.49/bag), a PR Bar ($2.07/bar), Mutti Double Tomato Concentrate ($2.99/tube), a box of Steel Cut Better Oats ($3.99/box), a box of Skinny Girl Peach Bellini Green Tea ($4.99/box), a bag of Wilton candy drizzles ($1.99/bag), Bush’s Garbanzo Beans ($1.00/can), a pack of Bush’s Hummus Made Easy ($2.29/bag), a can of Wild Planet chicken breast ($4.99/can) and three bags of Chiridos ($1.49/bag). This box’s value is $37.26 which is $17.26 more than the subscription price. I absolutely LOVED the variety in this month’s box. The Steel Cut Better Oats were amazing and I’ve already added them to my regular shopping list. The Skinny Girl green tea was also beyond spectacular! I can’t wait to try the rest of my goodies! I really hope Degustabox continues to send more items like these in future boxes!

*Items in this month’s box may vary from what is seen in this post. Since not everyone owns a K-Cup machine, Degustabox is sending Zenify Steady Energy, and Instant coffee as replacements*

Plum Organics: From Babies to Kids

I started using Plum Organics back in 2014 when my daughter was born. We loved their Super Puffs and Little Yums through my daughter’s infant years. Up until recently, I had no idea that Plum Organics made a “Tots” and “Kids” line! Just like their baby products, Plum Organics has an extensive line of nutritional Tots and Kids products! We received samples of their Super Puffs® (Strawberry/Beet) , as well as Little Yums® (spinach/apple/kale and blueberry/fig) from their baby line. We also received yummy Mighty Dinos™ cheddar crackers from their Tots line and Jammy Sammy® from their Kids Line (blueberry/oatmeal and apple cinnamon/oatmeal). The Super Puffs and Little Yums were just as we remembered them! The Super Puffs are made with 7 essential vitamins and minerals, 10% DV Iron, 24 mg Choline, and are certified organic. Because these snacks easily dissolve, they are the perfect “first snack” for babies that are learning to self- feed. Plum Organic Little Yums are baby teething wafers made from whole grain buckwheat and real fruits and veggies! These snacks also easily dissolve making them perfect for little teething babies.  The Mighty Dinos were completely new to us, but my daughter was extremely eager to test them out. Mighty Dinos are made with real cheese, are certified organic, and are packed with 5 essential vitamins and minerals. These cheese snacks tasted much better than competitor brands and my daughter kept requesting more! Although we loved the Mighty Dinos, it was the Jammy Sammy snacks that really stole the show! Each Jammy Sammy was individually wrapped and lunchbox ready! They are made with oats, whole wheat, and ancient grains, are certified organic, and contain no  genetically modified ingredients! These Jammy Sammy snacks were super tasty (yes, I’ll admit I ate more than one)! They taste just like little mini jelly sandwiches, and are packed with protein! My daughter prefered the blueberry/oatmeal combination, but I prefered the apple cinnamon. I am super excited that we were able to try these Pum Organic goodies! Now my daughter can continue to enjoy snacks from her favorite brand and I can continue to feel good about what I am feeding her!

Degustabox: March

In my opinion, this month’s Degustabox was mostly about being healthy. Usually we have a ton of snack foods which this month’s box did not have. However, I was equally as impressed with all of the healthy foods included in this box. Inside this month’s box we had a box of Good Thins ($3.69/box), a bag of Mr.Thinster’s ($2.99/bag), a box of Tolerant Foods ($4.99/box), a box of Goya Quinoa Blend ($2.99/box), a box of Loacker cookies ($3.99/box), a box of Paul’s Quinoa ($7.49/box), a bottle of Energems ($6.99/bottle), a 7 days snack ($1.49/pack), a bag of Boboli pizza dough ($4.99/bag) and a can of Lemoncocco ($1.59/Can).  That is a total value of $36.21 which is $16.21 over the price of the subscription. Other than the Loacker cookies, Good Thins and  Energems, everything in this box was new to me. I was excited to try so many different brands (especially the Mrs.Thinster’s and the 7Days croissant). Although this wasn’t my favorite Degustabox, I was extremely excited to learn about some great new brands! These are things I would have never grabbed off of the shelves myself (which is the point of a subscription box, right?)!
