Last Minute Dilemma at Dinnertime? Review and Giveaway!

28 Mar

Have you experienced a last-minute dilemma at dinnertime? You know, those nights when you’ve got to make something out of nothing…in no time.  We have experienced those nights more times then we would like to admit.  There is one night that quickly comes to mind, since we only have one car in our family, so me getting to the store is limited. On this particular night my husband decided that he was going to make something with the left over black beans and sausage, that I did not want to eat again.  He ran by the store on his way home from work to pick up a few items.  He comes home with a big bag of cilantro and who knows what else he picked up.  The only thing I remember is that the whole meal tasted only of cilantro.  He had accidentally put way too much of it.  I did manage to eat all mine, because I was so hungry.  He, on the other hand, decided peanut butter sandwich was better.

 

Here is the answer to your last minute dinner dilemmas:

Seasoned Selects are a new line of stuffed chicken breast entrees. They’re made with juicy, white meat chicken stuffed with savory combinations of meat, cheese and vegetables. Unlike the traditional Barber Stuffed Breast, however, this new line is not breaded, but is seasoned with a blend of herbs and spices, and is lower in calories, fat, and carbs. Seasoned Selects are a great dinner option for those nights when you need drama-free dinner prep. Just throw these entrees in the oven and get going on a quick salad or side dish. Barber Foods Seasoned Selects are a quick and unexpected dinner option that everyone in the family will love.

My thoughts: I have to say that Spinach Florentine was delicious.  It is the perfect portion.  It was moist and seasoned just right. The best thing it was can have a meal on the table in about 35 minutes.  You can check out all the wonderful selections of Seasoned Selects on their website here. I highly recommend you pick up a few of these to have on hand for quick dinners for your family.  We not only tried the Spinach Florentine,  but we also tried one of their wonderful sauce recipes found here.  I decide that I love cheese and wanted to make one of their quick sauces. I made Quick Spiced Cheese Sauce. It was definitely quick and easy to make.  I made baked potatoes and broccoli and poured the cheese sauce on top. Yum!

Viola!

Giveaway!  Barber Foods would love to give one of my readers a Free product coupon and $25 gift card (to help purchase items for the yummy side dish recipes)!!

Prefense is the Best Defense Review and Giveaway!

24 Feb

I love the convenience  of using antibacterial sanitizing hand gel.  You can simply throw it in your purse, diaper bag or even your car for instant clean hands on the go.  I quickly found out that I am allergic to an ingredient found in those hand gels.  I now buy things that are antibacterial free.  I am to the point where I have a small  bottle of regular soap I keep with me in my purse for when I go out, to wash my own hands. I was hoping one day to find a waterless hand sanitizer that I could use on a daily basis.  Well……  I have found that waterless hand sanitizer….Prefense! I don’t have itchy hands using this product and I have used it several times.


Why is Prefense better then other leading hand sanitizers?

·   No alcohol! Prefense is made of all-natural ingredients and has absolutely NO alcohol in it!

·   Our technology protects you for 24 hours or 10 hand washings!  This is what moms really love to hear about!

·   Prefense is non-toxic and safe for kids! It will not hurt you if swallowed!

·   Prefense is silica based which means it doesn’t dry out your hands like traditional alcohol sanitizers.  It actually smoothes and softens your hands. You can totally see this when you apply it!

·  Prefense protects against staph, strep, E.coli, drug resistant MRSA strains, and more. We fight germs that other hand sanitizers can’t.

·  Because “one spray lasts all day” our 1.5 oz Prefense Botanicals Hand Sanitizer offers 120 applications, costing only $.08 per day, compared to $1.20 per day with alcohol hand sanitizers.

If you have any another questions or concerns or would like more information about Prefense please contact them on Twitter and/or Facebook

Buy it:

– Online at  Amazon.com or REI.com

– or find it in a store near you on their website

Win it:

The Awesome staff at Prefense has offered to give away their big 8oz Prefense!!

Tasty and Healthy Granola Gourmet Energy Bars- Review and Giveaway!

6 Feb


I have been trying to change the way I eat.  I have been searching for alternate healthy and natural  foods to foods that I love.  I love to snack on granola bars, but I know most are not good for you.  I was given the opportunity to review  Tasty and Healthy Granola Gourmet Energy Bars.

Created by a Diabetic and his Family. Tasty and Healthy Physician Endorsed Energy Bars.  Frustrated by a lack of snacks that did not cause a blood sugar spike, but that also tasted good Granola Gourmet was born.

– 100% Natural * No Wheat * No Dairy * Kosher * Vegan
– Very Low Sodium (15-35mg) * No Refined Sugar
– 10-13g Whole Grains * 391-590mg Omega-3’s

I received 4 delicious flavors:

Ultimate Berry

Ultimate Cran-Orange

Ultimate Mocha Fudge

Ultimate Fudge Brownie


My Thoughts:

My first impression was that these were going to be one of those bars that claim to be tasty but yet taste like cardboard.  I was very impressed with the taste of these. They were all very good in my opinion.  I do have to say that my favorite ones are Ultimate Fudge Brownie and Cran-Orange.  They are perfect for that on the go snack, or that afternoon pick me up.

Buy It:

You can purchase  these online from Amazon.com here for $14.46 for 10 bars.

Win It:
