Back to School Treats with Immaculate Baking #IBBakesWell

Immaculate Baking mixes use only wholesome, simple ingredients like you would use if you made it from scratch.  No GMO's, no artificial preservatives, and no high fructose corn syrup.

My kids went back to school this week.  I always like to do something special for them and this year was no different.  I included a little surprise treat in their lunch and then we had a special dessert after dinner while we sat around and talked about how their day went.

I usually do all my baking from scratch, because I am pretty picky about what ingredients I use.   This year I had a little bit of help from Immaculate Baking.  New Immaculate Baking mixes use only wholesome, simple ingredients like I would use if I baked from scratch.

Immaculate Baking has just come out with a new line of dry baking mixes.  They are committed to avoiding GMO’s in their products, which is something I am really passionate about, as my long-time readers may know.  If you read the ingredient list, they are all items that you can easily recognize.  No fillers, no GMO’s, no high fructose corn syrup, no artificial preservatives, and 0 grams trans-fat!  Immaculate Baking even offers all organic and gluten-free mixes.  I can’t tell you how much I appreciate a company that is committed to offering only all natural ingredients in their mixes.

Immaculate Baking mixes use only wholesome, simple ingredients like you would use if you made it from scratch.  No GMO's, no artificial preservatives, and no high fructose corn syrup.

I got to try 4 different varieties of Immaculate Baking mixes.  The varieties I received were Yellow Cake, Brownies, Gluten Free Double Chocolate Chip Cookies, and Chocolate Cake.  I immediately made the batch of brownies and froze them for the kids’ lunches.  Of course I had to try one.  Moist and chocolatey, – just how  I like them!

Immaculate Baking mixes use only wholesome, simple ingredients like you would use if you made it from scratch.  No GMO's, no artificial preservatives, and no high fructose corn syrup.

For our special back to school dessert, I made cupcakes with the Immaculate Baking Chocolate Cake Mix.  I topped them with peanut butter frosting and made special back to school cupcake toppers to finish them off.

Here is the peanut butter frosting recipe I made.

Peanut Butter Frosting Recipe

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter (I use natural peanut butter with no added sugar.)
  • 2 cups powdered sugar (I use organic.)
  • 1/4 cup milk

Mix the softened butter and peanut butter with an electric mixer. Gradually mix in the sugar.   Add the milk, one tablespoon at a time,  until all of the sugar is mixed in and the frosting is spreadable.

Immaculate Baking mixes use only wholesome, simple ingredients like you would use if you made it from scratch.  No GMO's, no artificial preservatives, and no high fructose corn syrup.

The cupcakes were a big hit.  They had a rich chocolate flavor.  They stayed moist even several days after I made them.

I was definitely impressed with the Immaculate Baking mixes I tried.  I will definitely be looking for them in the future for those times when I don’t have time to bake from scratch.

Want to try new Immaculate Baking mixes for yourself?  They are now available in the grocery section at Target.  You can find them in the baking aisle.

You can learn more about this wonderful company at ImmaculateBaking.com.  Also, be sure to like Immaculate Baking on Facebook.

Hormel Ready-To-Go Proteins Help You Get Dinner on the Table Fast! #newfromhormel #CollectiveBias #shop

Get dinner on the table fast with #newfromhormel Everyday Scratch and Hot Sandwich Meals. #collectivebias #shop

Disclosure:  This shop has been compensated by #CollectiveBias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone.

My kids headed back to school this week. The lazy days of summer are over and it’s right back into a very busy schedule with marching band practice, scout meetings, and all the kids’ other activities. In spite of how hectic life can be at times, I still like to have a home-cooked meal on the table every night for my family. Fortunately for me, there is help!  With new Hormel Everyday Scratch and Hot Sandwich Meats I can get a delicious homemade meal on the table in no time at all.  With Hormel’s ready-to-go proteins, I can whip up my favorite casserole and get it in the oven in a jiffy.  Which leaves me more time for other things – like helping with homework, and playing taxi driver to my kids :)

I recently had the opportunity to try varieties of both of the #newfromhormel products – Everyday Scratch and Hot Sandwich Meats.  I picked them up from Kroger on the way home from an open house. By the time I got home, it was already late and the kids were hungry.  So I was extremely grateful that the Hormel Hot Sandwich Meats are heat and serve.

I warmed the Hormel Philly Style Steak on the stove top while I prepared a veggie and heated some twice baked potatoes I had made earlier.  I was able to get dinner on the table in just 20 minutes – much to the delight of my kids who claimed they were starving!

Each tub of Hormel Hot Sandwich Meats makes 4 generous sandwiches.  They are fully cooked already, so you just need to heat them on the stove until they are piping hot.  To make things even quicker, you can also microwave them.

We served our Philly Style Steak on crusty french bread and topped it with muenster cheese.  The Philly Style Steak Hot Sandwich Meat includes sauteed peppers and onions in a flavorful sauce.  I wasn’t quite sure about the sauce, but it adds so much flavor and helps keep everything moist.  It made for a quick meal that was both delicious and quite filling.

In the future, I definitely want to try Hormel’s other varieties of Hot Sandwich Meat when I literally have no time to cook.  Also available are

  • Buffalo Style Chicken
  • Tequila Lime Chicken
  • Tequila Lime Steak

Today, I had a little more time to prepare our meal, but with it being the kids’ first day of school, I didn’t want to spend all afternoon in the kitchen getting dinner together.  So I used Hormel’s Everyday Scratch Rotisserie Style Chicken to help me quickly put together one of our family’s favorite casseroles – Cheesy Chicken and Broccoli Bake.  Here’s the recipe…

Cheesy Chicken and Broccoli Bake Recipe

  • 4 cups prepared rice (I use quick cooking brown rice)
  • 1 bag frozen broccoli
  • 1 package of Hormel Everyday Scratch Rotisserie Style Chicken, diced
  • 1 can cream of chicken soup
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 8 oz of sharp cheddar cheese, shredded

Get dinner on the table fast with #newfromhormel Everyday Scratch and Hot Sandwich Meals. #collectivebias #shop

In a 9×13 inch baking dish sprayed with non-stick spray, layer the rice, broccoli, and chicken.  In a small bowl, mix the cream of chicken soup with the milk and pour over the top of the casserole.  Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.  Sprinkle with the shredded cheddar and return to the oven for 3-4 minutes to melt the cheese.

Get dinner on the table fast with #newfromhormel Everyday Scratch and Hot Sandwich Meals. #collectivebias #shop

The nice thing about this simple recipe is that you can use it as a template and mix things up a bit.   I switch things up from time to time, substituting a different vegetable, cheese, or cream soup.  It’s delicious no matter how you make it.  In the past, I normally just use leftover chicken to make this recipe, but I have to say that the seasoning on the rotisserie chicken lends a nice flavor to this recipe.  So I think I am going to use it from now on when I make this recipe.

In addition to the Rotisserie Chicken, there are five other Hormel Everyday Scratch varieties that can help you get a head start with your favorite recipes.

  • Flame Seared Carnitas – I am thinking of using these for taco night!
  • Flame Seared Chicken Breast – would be great for any casserole or recipe where you need cooked chicken
  • Fusilli Pomodoro with Grilled Chicken – for all your favorite Italian dishes
  • 6-Cheese Macaroni with Grilled Chicken
  • Roasted Garlic Cheese Risotto with Grilled Chicken

Although the main benefit of these products are that they can help you get a meal on on the table quickly, I think you will also appreciate that these refrigerated entrees contain no preservatives and have 0 grams of trans fat.  As a mom who tries to feed her family wholesome, nutritious meals, I can definitely appreciate that.

New from Hormel at Kroger

Want to try new Hormel Everyday Scratch or Hot Sandwich Meats for  yourself?  Both can be found in the refrigerated entrees section at your local Kroger.  At the Kroger Marketplace here in town, the refrigerated entrees are found on an island (or at least that’s what I call it!) in front of the meat counter.

Money Saving Coupons

What’s even better than Hormel’s delicious new Everyday Scratch and Hot Sandwich Meats saving you time in the kitchen?  Saving time and money of course!   Here are two coupons you will want to print before heading off to the store. (Both coupons expire 30 days after you print them and they are available until 10/31/14.)

So that’s twice in the past few days that Hormel has helped me get dinner on the table quickly – first with their Hot Sandwich Meats and then again with their Everyday Scratch ready-to-go protein.  I am definitely going to keep a couple of varieties of these on hand for those nights when I just don’t have much time to cook. We busy moms can use all the help we can get!  So tell me…  Which of Hormel’s new varieties are you most interested in trying?

When their father passes away, four grown siblings, bruised and banged up by their respective adult lives, are forced to return to their childhood home and live under the same roof together for a week, along with their over-sharing mother and an assortment of spouses, exes and might-have-beens. Confronting their history and the frayed states of their relationships among the people who know and love them best, they ultimately reconnect in hysterical and emotionally affecting ways amid the chaos, humor, heartache and redemption that only families can provide—driving us insane even as they remind us of our truest, and often best, selves.

Celebrate National Waffle Day with Van’s!

Celebrate National Waffle Day with Van's Waffles.

Did you know that August 24th is National Waffle Day?  Our family just loves waffles for breakfast – especially Van’s waffles. With no artificial ingredients, no hydrogenated or GMO oils, and no high fructose corn syrup, Van’s frozen waffles are one convenience food that I happily serve to my family. I just pop them in the oven for a few minutes while I mix up some scrambled eggs. It’s a quick and easy breakfast that’s healthy too.

Our favorite variety of Van’s Waffles is their multi-grain waffles. They are packed with 8 whole grains – whole wheat, oats, barley, brown rice, rye, quinoa, amaranth, and millet. Plus they taste great and our whole family enjoys them.

Celebrate National Waffle Day with Van's Waffles.

In honor of National Waffle Day, I thought I would share some of our family’s favorite waffle toppings. I like to prep a bunch of toppings and set them out on the table and let everyone top their Van’s waffles exactly how they want.

Celebrate National Waffle Day with Van's Waffles.

My husband and I like to keep it simple – fresh strawberries and blueberries, drizzled with real maple syrup. Yum!  Sometimes we mix things up a bit and use fresh peaches.   In the winter, I sometimes take frozen fruit, add a bit of honey,  and heat it on the stove until it begins to break down a bit.  It makes a yummy sauce that is also great for topping Van’s waffles.

Celebrate National Waffle Day with Van's Waffles.

My middle daughter loves to top her waffles with peanut butter, bananas, and a drizzle of honey.  My son and youngest daughter are partial to topping their waffles with chocolate hazelnut spread and fresh strawberries.

No matter how you top yours, Van’s waffles are a quick and healthy breakfast.  So tell me… What are your favorite waffle toppings?

And now for a fun giveaway…

Enter to win a Van's Waffles Prize Pack that includes 4 free product coupons and a tote bag.  The giveaway is open to US residents only and ends September 1, 2014.

Protect Your Child’s Belongings With Mabel’s Labels

Help protect your child's school supplies from loss or theft with a label pack from Mabel's Labels.

Last year, my youngest daughter was forever having her school supplies stolen out of her desk.  I must have replaced the entire contents of her desk three times at least!  As a penny-pinching mama, that just made me angry.  Not with my daughter of course – it wasn’t her fault.  They switch classes, so there are multiple kids sitting at her desk.  I alerted the teacher several times, but they were never able to figure out who was taking my daughter’s supplies.

With 3 kids, back to school time can be quite expensive in our house.  I think we have spent over $200 so far in the past few weeks on school supplies alone.  After spending all that money, I definitely want to make sure that my kids’s belongings don’t get stolen this year. So I had the grand plan this year to label everything with a sharpie marker, right down to the individual pencils.  Would it be effective?  Probably, but it wouldn’t look all that great.  Thankfully before I broke out the sharpie, I was contacted by Mabel’s Labels about a review for one of their label packs.  I think my daughter is a bit relieved that all her new school supplies get to be a little bit more stylish than just being labeled in marker!

Help protect your child's school supplies from loss or theft with a label pack from Mabel's Labels.

Mabel’s Labels was started by a group of moms who know all too well the frustration of replacing a child’s belongings after they are lost.  Mabel’s Labels offers high quality, waterproof,  personalized labels and tags for the stuff kid lose.   From sippy cups, to school supplies, to electronics, chances are Mabel’s Labels offers a tag or label that can help protect your child’s belongings.

One thing I love about Mabel’s Labels is that their products stand up to normal wash and wear.

  • Skinny-Minis™ are dishwasher and microwave safe
  • Tag Mates™ are washer and dryer safe
  • Shoe Labels and Teeny Tags™ are waterproof and UV resistant

Help protect your child's school supplies from loss or theft with a label pack from Mabel's Labels.

I received the Stylish Scholars label pack to review.  I had it personalized with my daughter’s name.  I love that they offer labels for older kids who have moved on from bottles and sippy cups to iPods and cell phones!  The Stylish Scholars pack can be used on school supplies, water bottles,  backpacks, electronics, and more.  You get to choice the design, colors, and font.  

The pack I received included

• 40 Skinny-Minis™
• 50 Tag Mates™
• 16 Round Labels
• 2 Teeny Tags™

Help protect your child's school supplies from loss or theft with a label pack from Mabel's Labels.

So my daughter and I have been busy personalizing all her school supplies.  The Skinny-Minis and Teeny Tags were just perfect for fitting into small spaces like on the handle of her scissors or the center of her ruler. I may have gone a bit overboard with the labeling though, as evidenced by my daughter’s exasperated sigh when I went to label each pencil with a Teeny Tag :)

At any rate, my daughter just loved the fun dot design on her labels. As for me, I am looking forward to less school supplies to replace this year since everything has been labeled with my daughter’s name.  If you have a child heading back to school, I highly recommend you check out Mabel’s Labels.  They are a great way to help protect your children’s belongings from getting lost or stolen.

Want to learn more about the different products Mabel’s Labels offers?  Visit their website MabelsLabels.com.  You can also follow them on Twitter or like them on Facebook.

So tell me…  How do you protect your child’s school supplies from loss or theft?  Have you ever heard of Mabel’s Labels?

The Maze Runner Hits Theaters September 19th #MazeRunner

Based on the young adult best-selling book by James Dashner, The Maze Runner hits theaters on September 19th.

Even though I am far from a teenager, I have really been enjoying all the young adult action books that have been made into movies lately.  I recently found out about another one that looks like it is going to be a big hit.  The Maze Runner is based on the best-selling book by James Dashner.  From watching the trailer, it looks like it is going to be action-packed!  I can’t wait to take my take my 16 year old son to see it when it comes out to theaters on September 19th.

About The Maze Runner:

When Thomas (Dylan O’Brien) wakes up trapped in a massive maze with a group of other boys, he has no memory of the outside world other than strange dreams about a mysterious organization known as W.C.K.D. Only by piecing together fragments of his past with clues he discovers in the maze can Thomas hope to uncover his true purpose and a way to escape.

Based on the young adult best-selling book by James Dashner, The Maze Runner hits theaters on September 19th.

The Maze Runner stars Dylan O’Brien, Kaya Scodelario, Will Poulter, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Aml Ameen, and Ki Hong Lee. It was directed by Wes Ball and produced by Ellen Goldsmith-Vein, Wyck Godfrey, Marty Bowen.

The Maze Runner is rated PG-13. My daughters may be a little bit young to see it yet, but I know my son will enjoy it. In fact, when I told him about it, he immediately asked to get the book so he could read it before the movie comes out!

Be sure to check out the movie trailer for The Maze Runner.

To learn more about this film, follow the hashtag #MazeRunner, and be sure to follow the movie’s social media channels.

Also be sure to come back here the week of September 8th for a fun giveaway. You will have the chance to win a copy of the book and a gift card so you can go see the movie.

So tell me… Have you read The Maze Runner? Will you be seeing it when it comes out to theaters on September 19th.

Celebrate National Lemonade Day at Red Robin and Join the Fight Against Childhood Cancer

Help Red Robin celebrate National Lemonade Day and join the fight against childhood cancer.

Nothing is more refreshing during the summertime than a tall glass of ice cold lemonade, except maybe a Freckled Lemonade from Red Robin!  Did you know that August 20th is National Lemonade Day?  I didn’t either until recently.  This year, Red Robin restaurants all across the US are  helping to celebrate National Lemonade Day by giving a little something back.

Help Red Robin celebrate National Lemonade Day and join the fight against childhood cancer.

On August 20th, participating Red Robin restaurants will be hosting lemonade stands.  Guests can try samples of their Freckled Lemonade, which is a yummy blend of Minute Maid Lemonade and sweet strawberries.  In addition, Red Robin employees will also be collecting donations that will go directly to Alex’s Lemonade Stand, a charity that works to help find a cure for childhood cancers and raise awareness.  Any Red Robin guests who donate $5 or more will receive a yellow bracelet that they can wear to show their support.

If you have never heard of Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, it was started in 2000 by 4 year old cancer patient named Alexandra Scott.  She wanted to have a lemonade stand to raise money to find a cure for all kids with cancer.  Alexandra passed away that same year, but her legacy continues with the foundation bearing her name.  To date, Alex’s Lemonade Stand has raised over $80 million and helped to fund over 450 pediatric cancer research projects.

Help Red Robin celebrate National Lemonade Day and join the fight against childhood cancer.

Want to help celebrate National Lemonade Day with Red Robin and join the fight against childhood cancer?  Here’s how you can help, even if you aren’t able to visit a Red Robin restaurant on August 20th.

  • Make a donation directly to AlexsLemonade.org.
  • Visit a Red Robin Restaurant anytime and purchase a Freckled Lemonade.  A percentage of the proceeds from every Freckled Lemonade sold goes to Alex’s Lemonade Stand.
  • Purchase an Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation eGift Card at www.redrobin.com/giftcards.
  • Purchase Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation Merchandise from the Red Robin website.

In addition, every time Red Robin opens a new restaurant, ALL proceeds from Freckled Lemonade during grand opening week will be donated to Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation.

I don’t know about you, but every time I hear of a child with cancer, it breaks my heart a little.   So I love that Red Robin restaurants are lending a hand to help support this wonderful charity.  To learn more about Red Robin and the ways they are helping Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, be sure to visit RedRobin.com/ALSF.  (The website will be live August 18th just in time for National Lemonade Day.)

Help Red Robin celebrate National Lemonade Day and join the fight against childhood cancer.

I had the opportunity to visit Red Robin recently and try one of their Freckled Lemonades.  I had no idea what a Freckled Lemonade was beforehand, but was pleased to discover that it was a blend of lemonade and real strawberries.  So yummy! You can have as many refills as you want so I might have been swimming in lemonade by the time we left :)  The nice waitress even gave me another in a to-go glass.   So you are getting a delicious glass of ice cold strawberry lemonade and a portion of the sale goes to support a worth charity.  That’s a win-win situation in my book!

Help Red Robin celebrate National Lemonade Day and join the fight against childhood cancer.

I had actually never been to a Red Robin before, but was really pleased with their selection of gourmet burgers.   My husband, who would eat a burger for breakfast, lunch, and dinner if he could, was in heaven!  Their burgers are huge and they come with bottomless steak fries.  Which means you can have endless refills.  We didn’t take advantage of it, because we were stuffed,  but it’s great that they will bring you more if you want.

My husband and I are going to be going back to Red Robin for National Lemonade Day to help support Alex’s Lemonade Stand.  Will you join us?  To find out if there is a Red Robin restaurant near you, please visit RedRobin.com/locations

Enter to win a $25 Red Robin Gift Card.  The giveaway is open to US residents only and ends August 20, 2014.
