Idahoan Potato: Chicken (Turkey) Shepherd’s Pie Recipe #recipe #PoormansCasserole

chicken shepards pie

We love Shepherd’s Pie recipes so we created a Chicken Shepherd’s Pie but you could also use Turkey in the recipe and it would come out great as well. The Turkey would be perfect to make after Thanksgiving with all the left overs. It’s so filling and a great comfort food on those cold winter or fall nights. It’s an easy go to on those nights when you have a lot going on and it can be made ahead and frozen as well. If your freezing it just leave out the milk and mix together the veggies, meat and Cream Of Mushroom soup. Then freeze, when you want to serve just defrost, place in a pan, make your mashed potatoes and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes then top with your cheese and bake another 5 minutes till cheese is melted.

Clean Eating Fruit Kabobs With A Lemon Ginger Dipping Sauce Recipe #CleanEating #SnackRecipe

P6300212

In the summer Fruit Kabobs are easy to make and delicious. I like to have a container filled with them ready for the kids to grab and snack on instead of sugar filled snacks. We also use a Lemon Ginger Dipping sauce for the Kabobs to give them a little more flavor. The kids just go wild over it, adults do as well because the Lemon Ginger Dipping sauce has an amazing flavor that it offers the fruit. The kids use a spoon to add a little bit of the dipping sauce onto their fruit or place some on a plate for them to dip in.

The dipping sauce can be kept in the fridge next to the Fruit Kabobs so that your ready for snacking at a moments notice with very little effort for Mom and Dad. They are also perfect for bringing to a get together as well. It’s simple to put together but your guests will rave about your Kabobs with this dipping sauce. You can use any fruits that you desire or are in season at the moment.

1/2 Cantloupe
1/4 of a Watermelon
1/4 Of a Fresh Pineapple core and peeled
1 Quart of Fresh Strawberries
1 cup Plain Greek Yogurt
1/4 tsp Cinnamon
1/4 tsp Ginger
2 TBSP Fresh Lemon Juice
3 TBSP Honey
10 Kabob Sticks

Step 1 Cut your fruit into bite size chunks

Step 2: Slide your fruit onto the Kabob sticks rotating the fruits so there is lots of color

Step 3: In a Bowl Mix together the Plain Greek Yogurt, Cinnamon, Ginger, Lemon Juice, and Honey. Place in a serving bowl for dipping. If the recipe is for a get together you can double or triple the recipe so that you will have enough dipping sauce.

Peapod Plus Tent Review

peapod plus

I received the Peapod Plus to review with my adorable little princess’s. We received it right before Easter, it was perfect timing to test it with them as they would have a long day for the holiday.

We were having all the family over after they found their Easter Baskets that the Easter Bunny left for them. When they arrived we would be doing an Easter Egg Hunt, letting them run around and play, while they were waiting to eat. They were on the go for the whole morning and so ready for a nap! All the adults wanted to stay outside and continue the fun. So I pulled out the Peapod Plus and put it in an area where the older kids wouldn’t be running around. I put two of my granddaughter’s in the peapod and they were out like a light!

I loved the way the Peapod plus kept them shaded from the sun and when zipped no flies or bugs could get in by them. It must have been so comfortable for them because they took a two hour nap! That was with all the adults talking and the other kids running around and having fun! The padding on the bottom of the Peapod plus is so soft that the kids just loved laying there. Even after they woke up from their nap, they brought toys into the Peapod and played in there with their babies and other toys. My oldest granddaughter wanted to bring the Peapod plus home with her so she could continue to play in it and sleep in it that night! I told her it was staying at Nana’s house but that she could play in it and take a nap in it again.

The Peapod plus was a huge hit with the granddaughter’s! It would be the perfect gift for a baby shower, adoption gift, or to have at your home for your children or grandchildren. If you can’t find the kids, just look in the Peapod Plus if it’s out and your sure to find them sleeping or playing inside!

I also loved how you could use the swaddle in different ways to make your little angel comfortable. If they would like their arms out of the swaddle they can have it wrapped from under the arms to their feet. You can wrap them in the swaddle from their shoulders to their feet. The Ollie Swaddle also makes it easy for you to change your little bundle of joy as well. You can lift it from the feet while the upper portion of their body is still swaddled. It is just so easy to use with your little prince or princess as well.

Now, when your little angel gets the Ollie World Swaddle dirty by spitting up on it or other ways it’s easy to wash as well. There is no guessing on how to clean it the best way. You just close the velcro tabs, place it in a mesh laundry bag, place it in the washer and put it on cold and delicate and wash. Then delicates dry or air dry. It’s that easy to clean! So you will get a lot of use out of your Ollie World swaddle as will your little angel.

Binxy Shopping Cart Hammock For Babies Review #BabyShowerGiftGuide

grey-aqua3

I received the Binxy Shopping Cart Hammock to review. I have to say that when my oldest children were born there was nothing like this around for them so shopping was interesting. You put the big bulky car seat in the cart, or you put them in the front and strapped them in and prayed they didn’t try to chew on the bar for pushing the cart while you were shopping and they were teething. It was always a new adventure when your raising a little princess or prince as well.

The Binxy Shopping Cart Hammock is just adorable! I received the Grey and Aqua Shopping Cart Hammock to review. I loved the bright colors and they also offered Full Bloom, Triangles, Indigo Dream, and Black. They have a color or style that everyone will love. I have to say that I love several of them. They would make the perfect Baby Shower gift for a new Mom to be. If you have gone shopping with a little angel you know how frustrating it can be to make sure your little one is safe. You lug in that huge car seat put it in the cart and have to keep a close eye on it to ensure that the little angel is safe. You can put them in the seats but honestly, do you really remember wipes to wipe them down to ensure that they do not get sick and so on from the last child that was in the seat. Not all the grocery stores or stores have the seats that are safe for little ones. So you have them in the front of the cart strapped in and holding them as your reaching for things that you need or just wait to go shopping by yourself.

I love that the Binxy Shopping Cart Hammock when not in use can fit into the baby bag and doesn’t take up hardly any room! You can easily pull it out and attach it to the cart then place your little angel in the hammock and belt them in so they are safe and secure while your shopping. The hammock can be used from birth till the little angel can sit upright by themselves or a 50 lb weight limit. The hammock can be used on plastic or metal shopping carts. Parents just love the Binxy Shopping Cart Hammock, don’t believe me feel free to go to their website and view all the adorable photos of the little angels using the hammock and the parents reviews of the hammock as well. I can say that you will go into cuteness over load as the babies on the reviews are just so adorable! It’s perfect for new Mom’s and the perfect Baby Shower gift.

DirtyBird Energy Sensitive Multipack Soap Review

Dirty Bird bar soap

I received the DirtyBird Energy Sensitive Multipack Soap to review with our family. I have to say there is a great variety of soaps that are perfect for the whole family. Since several of our family have sensitive skin, we couldn’t wait to try the soaps.

The DirtyBird Energy Sensitive Multipack Soap comes with 6 bars of soap in a great reusable container that you can also use to travel with you. The Multipack comes with 2 Recovery, 2 Relax, 1 Original, and 2 Replenish bars of soap. The Replenish bar of soap is unscented, the Relax bar is Lavender scented, the Original is Peppermint scented, and the Recovery bar is Eucalyptus scented. The bars are 5.5 oz bars are a great size and easy to handle when your using them in the bath or shower.

I tried the Relax bar as I had just been feeling a little overwhelmed lately with everything on my schedule and also from us being sick so much this winter. So I could really use something relaxing to help the tension go away. So I grabbed everything and headed in to see how it would work. Now, I only have time for a shower, because as many of you know when you have kids and grandkids they are going to go and locate you and bug you the whole time. So I told everyone that they were not to knock on the door, try to get into the bathroom, or anything else till I reappeared. I went on my Merry way and of course I got as far as in the bathroom and one of the kids needed to use it. OY! However, at least it was before I was trying to get relaxed.

I got into the shower and I could just smell the lavender scent it was just like “Ahhhhh!” So I got into the shower and when the hot water hit the soap it lathered up really well and it smelled even more like Lavender in the bathroom. I have to say that I just loved the the way that the soap felt on my skin as well. It was a very silky on my skin, I also had very dry skin from this winter and it was making the dry skin feel better as well. I was actually starting to relax and I could feel even some of the stress leaving my shoulders where it sets up camp and just stays. I felt so much more relaxed and ready to take on my schedule and my family after my relaxing shower. It really was heavenly, I have been using the relax for several days now and it really just makes me so much more relaxed and ready to take on everything that comes my way.

My son who has EDS, sensitive skin and allergies to a lot of soaps used the Replenish bar. It has no scent, a nice 5.5 oz bar, and he was excited to try the soap. Since the Relax soap bar worked for me and I had have allergies to soaps as well. So he was going to go try it, so he got all of his items ready for the shower and since he has the allergies we watch his skin close after he showers to ensure he doesn’t get hives. So he went in took his shower and when he came out of the bathroom I got his report on the Replenish. He said that he loved the way it lathered up, the way his skin felt so soft after his shower and it didn’t feel tight like it normally does. He really liked the way his skin felt, the way it felt like it was moisturized, he really liked it and has been using it ever since. I think that the Replenish would be great for a Mommy to be as it hydrates the skin so well. We all know that our bodies go through changes while we are pregnant so it would be great for Mom’s to use as well.

My son also tried the Recover soap bar, he gets a lot of bumps and bruises due to his EDS so we tried the soap bar as well. He has only tried it once so far but he just loved the Eucalyptus scent of the soap. He told me that it lathered well, that it felt really nice on his skin when he used it, that it didn’t dry his skin. He is going to keep using it with the Replenish bar soap and rotating the bars. We haven’t used it long enough to know if it helps to encourage bruises, Inflamation and bumps to heal quicker. I will however, update this review once we know how it works with them.
