Jarlsberg Cheese® Celebrates Mother’s Day

Posted on April 19, 2018 in 2018 Mother's Day Gift Guide Reviews

I love Jarlsberg Cheese.  It’s got a fantastic taste, and is so nutritious.   I discovered it a while back, in the front of our local Walmart.  It’s in the cooler, by the deli.  I’ve loved it ever since, and buy it at least once a month.  My 6 year old, Jacob, loves it too.  He eats more of it than I do.

Jarlsberg® Cheese, the nationally recognized premium brand of cheese, invites you and your family to surprise the BEST mom in the world with a scrumptious cheesy breakfast in bed. Jarlsberg® Cheese elevates every occasion, and Mother’s Day is the perfect time to wow and surprise mom with delicious, simple-to-prepare breakfast served by her favorite people in the world: you and your kids!

Would you like to make your mom a fascinating breakfast, this Mother’s Day?  Follow the recipe below, for pure deliciousness!

Spicy Tater Tot Breakfast Muffins

Ingredients:

36 frozen tater tots
2 cups Jarlsberg® cheese, grated and separated
8 Large eggs
2 Jalapeño peppers, seeds and veins removed and chopped finely
½ red pepper, chopped finely
2 tbsp. heavy cream
½ tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. ground pepper
Finely chopped parsley, for garnish

Non-stick spray
12 cup muffin tin pan

 

Directions:

Preheat oven to 425° F and spray 12 cup muffin tin with non-stick spray.

Place 3 tater tots into each muffin tin and bake for 10 minutes. Remove carefully and use a small spoon or fork to gently press down to form the base and sides of each tater tot muffin.

Divide 1 cup of Jarlsberg® cheese throughout the tater tots and place back in the oven for 10 more minutes.

In the meantime beat the eggs in a large bowl and combine the jalapeño, red peppers, heavy cream, salt and pepper. Once the tater tot muffins are done, carefully divide egg mixture into each tater tot cup. Top evenly with remaining cup of grated Jarlsberg® and place back into the oven for 10 minutes.

Remove each muffin and allow to cool for 5 minutes on a cooling rack before garnishing with parsley and serving.

Makes 1 dozen muffins.

 

*Note: This recipe can be made non-spicy by replacing the jalapeño with the same amount of green bell peppers. (This would be the way to go for me).

We love Cave Tools, and the Meat Claws are no exception.  These meat claws really dig into the meat, making it easy for shredding.  I love that the meat claws are big.  They truly put shredding your meat to the test.  I mean, these things are awesome.  The stainless steel blades are amazing.  And, don’t leave your food tasting like metal.

My mother in law, not that long ago, pulled pork apart with 2 forks.  It took her over an hour.  Once she tried these Stainless Steel Meat Shredding Claws, she was sold.  Took her about 7 minutes, total.  She said she has to get a pair of these too.  I know she has already ordered her pair.  And, saved 15 % off, with the code below.

My husband loves the shredders, as well. He used them for the first time, yesterday. It was so easy to tear the meat apart. He is stronger than his mom, so it took him even less time to tear it apart. The meat was so moist, and delicious. And, shredded perfectly.

You even get 25 free recipes with the Stainless Steel Meat Shredding Claws.  That’s awesome.  My mother in law took my recipes, until she gets her package.

Real Time Pain Relief is wonderful

Posted on April 12, 2018 in 2018 Mother's Day Gift Guide 2018 Summer Fun Gift Guide Reviews

I love Real Time Pain Relief.  It makes me feel alive again.  I had a bad neck injury, at a younger age, and when I rub some Real Time Pain Relief (Hemp Oil Plus) on it, it feels so good.  I can’t believe I’m just finding Real Time.  I don’t know how I lived without it.  I even gave a bottle to my mother, so she could try it.  She broke her ankle a few years back.  She too loves Real Time Pain Relief.

Key Ingredients of HEMP Oil Plus

  • Hemp Oil is believed to offer antioxidants, fatty acids, and minerals to skin.
  • Turmeric Extract is naturally rich in antioxidants and minerals that have a positive affect on collagen and skin tissue.
  • Wasabi Extract warms up stiff muscles and leaves an invigorating sensation on the skin.
  • Peppermint Oil is soothing and promotes blood flow. When used topically, it leaves an enlivening and refreshing tingle on the skin.

Real Time has more than just Hemp Oil though. They have an entire line of products. There’s the Hand Cream, Foot Cream, Pain Cream, and MAXX Cream. You can even buy them in a convenience pack and get more for your money. There’s even a daily relief.

Real Time Pain Relief won’t stain your clothes, and it’s Dependable FAST Relief. What more could you ask for? My family loves Real Time Pain Relief, and I’m sure yours will too.

My 20 year old, daughter, hurt her back when she was 14. Nothing helped. No pain medicine, or anything. My wife rubs this on her back, and she quickly feels relief.

To read more about Real Time, go to their site, listed above or below.

Remember to check out the sports cream, as well.

Pure Maple Syrup Powerhouse B&G Foods

Posted on April 11, 2018 in Reviews

Leads the Nation as #1 U.S. Bottler of Pure Maple Syrup

“Can you believe how good this Maple Syrup is?”  My spouse said to me.  So I tried it, and sure enough delicious doesn’t even explain it.  My 6 year old, and 20 year old both said that is was fantastic on their pancakes.  I can’t get over the great taste.

I know I missed Maple Syrup day, and for that I apologize.  But, you’ve really got to try this Maple Syrup.  It’s pure.  When do you find pure maple syrup?  Not often.

I will definitely be buying more.

Tapping Season, as the maple syrup season is known, is the time when the trees are “tapped” to gather sap which is then boiled in sugar houses to produce maple syrup. It takes 40 gallons of sap to produce one gallon of syrup.  Tapping season, which typically lasts about six to eight weeks, ends sometime in April. Weather dictates the length of tapping season – warm days followed by cool nights are needed to get the sap flowing. Once a tree buds, tapping season has come to an end.

Pure maple syrup is just one ingredient, sourced from nature, and contains no high fructose corn syrup and no artificial flavors or colors.  Our pure maple syrup is naturally gluten-free and certified kosher.  Additionally, pure maple syrup offers inherent benefits of the minerals manganese and zinc.

With proprietary blending methods and the highest standards of quality, B&G Foods is proud to offer the largest branded portfolio – nearly six times that of the nearest competitor. Maple masters on staff have an incredible 860 years of combined experience, ensuring that only the best maple syrup is bottled for our leading brands. Our pure maple syrup goes through numerous taste and consistency checks to ensure the highest quality.

The Sleep ZZZ Pillow is so Great!

Posted on March 25, 2018 in 2018 Easter Gift Guide kids Reviews

My little one, Jacob, age 6, loves the Sleep Zzz Pillow. He says he’s comfy all night, and doesn’t wake up until morning. It’s made him sleep through the night, when he couldn’t before. I’m not saying it’s a miracle worker, but it is for us. Now, the only time he gets up is to go potty, and he can’t wait to lay back down, and sleep with the Sleep Zzz Pillow.

Help your child fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer! The Sleep Zzz cuddles your child. It is like being held by a parent to fall asleep. The perfect shape for your little one!

If your child has a sensory problem, they say this is the pillow you have to get. Children love the 3mm pile cuddle fabric. It is super fuzzy!!

There are so many designs to choose from, and you can even have your child’s initials put on it. The Sleep Zzz Pillow will work for your child, like it has for mine. I love it, and we won’t be going back to a regular pillow for a long time.

Welch’s Mixed Fruit Snacks for Easter will go over great

Posted on March 24, 2018 in 2018 Easter Gift Guide Reviews

Welch’s Fruit Snacks are a great gift to give out for Easter. I’m going to stuff some packs in the Easter Eggs, for our annual Egg Hunt. Jacob, age 6, loves Welch’s, so when he opens up his eggs to find the Welch’s Snacks, he will be pleased.

I’m also going to be sending a box into his classroom, so that the teacher can give each child a portion controlled snack, before Easter break. And, these fruit snacks are really cute because they are shaped for Easter.

Great facts about Welch’s Fruit Snacks:

  •  Excellent Source of Vitamin C
  •  Good Source of Vitamins A & E
  •  Fat Free
  •  Gluten Free
  •  No Preservatives

However, don’t forget that Welch’s also makes Fruit Rolls, and Fruit and Yogurt Snacks. These are both excellent as well.

You can find these at your local retailer.  I just saw them at Walmart, in the Seasonal Section today.
