Herbed Sausage Stuffing

This recipe is really great! I didn’t have a lot of expectations because I have never had sausage dressing. I thought it was great. I didn’t think anyone one else in my house would like it but everyone gobbled it down. The next time I make this I am going to use hot sausage instead of mild I think the hot would be amazing.

It’s a very hearty recipe. I didn’t really follow the original recipe and this is actually a half recipe. It’s really good and easy. I would make it again that’s for sure!

  • 1 (16 ounce) packages Regular Flavor Jimmy Dean Pork Sausage
  • 4 ounces fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • 3/4 cup diced onions
  • 3/4 cup diced celery
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons poultry seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 (8 ounce) package herbed dry bread cubes
  • 1 cups chicken broth
  • 1/2 egg, lightly beaten
  1. Preheat oven to 325 F.
  2. In a large saucepan or stockpot, cook sausage over medium-high heat, stirring frequently until thoroughly cooked and no longer pink. 
  3. Add mushrooms, onion, celery and garlic; cook 10-12 minutes or until onion is translucent, stirring frequently. 
  4. Transfer mixture to a large bowl; add remaining ingredients and stir well. 
  5. Pour into a buttered 2-quart casserole.
  6. Bake covered for 60 minutes.

Dot & Dot Small Packing Organizer Review #packingcubes

Have you ever heard of Dot & Dot travel cubes? They are travel packing organizers that allow you to easily pack your stuff for a trip and with the see through mesh you can easily see what is in each cube.

They have see through mesh but at the same time they help you maintain your privacy while you go through hotel security. 

Dot & Dot travel cubes have to be one of the handiest things I have ever used to travel with. At first I saw the size 11" x 6.75" x 3" and didn’t think there would be much that I could pack in them when in fact I was able to load them up with no problems. One cube I got 10 pairs of socks, another cube I got 5 t-shirts, and another cube I packed for a short weekend trip I got 5 pairs of undies, and 5 pairs of socks in just one cube. I even had enough cubes to pack my electronics in one.

I think these are the best travel companions I have ever seen in my life. For my recent weekend trip I was able to easily just slip them in a backpack and for a longer week trip they went into my suitcase perfectly. I loved that I was able to easily see what was in each cube when I got to my hotel without having to open up each one. For once I actually felt organized while on a trip. That never happens. 

Normally I am unloaded the entire suitcase each time I need one small thing. Using the Dot & Dot travel cubes saved me a ton of time and effort. I am in love with these cubes! I should also note that my husband is completely jealous of my cubes too!!

Product Benefits:
  • See through mesh panel of these travel packing organizers allows you to easily find what you need.
  • Maintain your privacy while going through security in the airport.
  • Save time ironing your clothes at the hotel. The packing cube set will help minimize wrinkles on your clothes.
  • Maximize your luggage space so you can squeeze in more of your stuff.
  • Traveling with the entire family? Make packing and unpacking easy by assigning a cube per person or purpose.
  • Save time packing and unpacking by allowing you to unpack only what you need.
  • These travel packing cubes fit on your luggage, duffel, suitcase, backpack, slim bags on on their own.

Yalmeh Glory Eye Bright Gel☆Brightening Eye Cream☆ Review #EyeGel

I have had the pleasure of trying several of Yalmeh  products and I have to tell you so far I love them all but their Glory Eye Bright Eye Cream has to be my favorite.

Using Glory Eye Bright Eye Cream leaves my eyes looking amazing. Not only are the fine lines around my eyes starting to diminish but my biggest pleasure and surprise is that the dark circles around my eyes are lightening. I have always had major dark circles so I couldn’t be any more thrilled about that.

Yalmeh’s Glory Eye Bright Eye Cream should be called miracle eyes because it really does leave my eyes looking great! I love how absorbent it is too. I don’t have the best luck with a lot of creams because most of the time it just sits on my face and my skin never absorbs it. It ends up being sticky and a mess. The Glory Eye Bright Eye Cream is just the opposite. My skin loves it and absorbs it in no time. I normally put it on right before bed and that seems to work well for me. I am sure you could put it on under your cosmetics too. Yes, it works that well!

Do people think you party too much or don't get enough sleep, even though the real problems are your family genes or broken capillaries under the eyes?

Bring HoneyBaked Into Your Home for the Holidays #Giveaway #HoneyBakedHoliday

This year my family and I had an early Thanksgiving Dinner! Our dinner was probably the easiest Thanksgiving dinners we have ever had. Our smoked turkey, ham, and many of our sides came from HoneyBaked!

We visited the First Colony HoneyBaked location in Sugarland, Texas to pick out everything we were going to need for our Thanksgiving dinner. The wonderful staff was beyond helpful. Not only did they pick out the perfect pieces of meat that were just the right size to feed our family but they recommend the perfect sides too.

The First Colony HoneyBaked employees we also so kind as to tell us all of their specials as soon as we walked through the door. I think half of the time I was in there I spent just chatting with the guys behind the counter.

From HoneyBaked we purchased their ham, smoked turkey, and a few sides, Spinach artichoke for appetizers, macaroni and cheese, stuffing, and sweet potato soufflé. Of course we couldn’t leave HoneyBaked without dessert we brought home pecan pie and Bananas foster! Oh My! 

Although after dinner we couldn’t eat any more food we somehow managed to eat a lot of dessert. Their bananas foster and pecan pie were amazing along with a scoop of ice cream. I have to thank the men behind the counter at HoneyBaked First Colony for that suggestion… delicious!

FlavFusion Infuser Water Bottle Review #flavfusion

My husband and I have been working diligently to get our health situations in order. Losing a few pounds has been a mission of ours. Together we are closing in on losing 100 pounds. In an effort to lose weight we have been drinking a lot of water as a filling, body flush, and a way of drinking less soda. The FlavFusion Infuser Water Bottle has been key to our efforts.

The FlavFusion Infuser Water Bottle allows you to add fruit to your water for added flavor. I love it so much! I love that I can add flavor to my water because I can’t stand the taste of just plain water. I will drink plain water but I prefer it to have a nice flavor. With FlavFusion Infuser Water Bottle I can add lemons and limes to my water, but my true favorite is lime and strawberries. Oh my! So delicious!

The FlavFusion Infuser Water Bottle is a great asset to our weight loss. We take our bottles all over the place with us. If I am out and about you will find the FlavFusion Infuser Water Bottle in my purse. I use it every place I go. This helps keep me in check. If I drink a lot of water it keeps me full and I don’t feel the need to grab a snack or buy a soda when I am out. Oh yes I didn't mention it can help you save money too!!

If you are looking to add more water to your diet I highly recommend the FlavFusion Infuser Water Bottle. It’s a high quality bottle that doesn’t leak, holds up to a lot of wear, and does exactly what it says it infuses flavors into your water. It’s amazing!

Stretch Mark & Scar Cream [For Prevention & Reduction] Review #instanatural

No woman likes stretch marks but unfortunately there are just times that no matter how well you treat your body you are going to get them. When you have a baby you are almost always guaranteed to get them. Sometimes if you gain a few pounds …here they come. There are some people that just have them no matter what because of the elasticity in their skin. Whatever your case if you are like me you hate them and you want them gone. Gone at all cost if you ask me!

I recently had the chance to try InstaNatural’s Stretch Mark & Scar Cream and I am stunned that it’s actually working a bit for me. I didn’t anticipate reporting that to you. I figured that I would be telling you that it’s just another cream you don’t need. I can actually see a change and I am impressed by it. Now I will tell you that I have only been using it a few weeks so there might be even more changes down the road but for right now I am seeing the stretch marked area softening and tightening up. Softening are the lines, tightening are the marks. It’s so cool to see. I didn’t think I would see any results but in the case InstaNatural’s Stretch Mark & Scar Cream is showing me that changes can happen. I think with some additional exfoliation on my skin I could see major results.

InstaNatural’s Stretch Mark & Scar Cream is an effective treatment to minimize the appearance of current marks, while also preventing the forming of new ones. Stretch marks and scars are created when collagen is weakened and skin is stretched or torn beyond its limit. Our cream heavily moisturizes affected areas – such as hips, stomach and arms - delivering nourishment and hydration to enhance elasticity of your skin and help restore a youthful look and even appearance.

Key Ingredients:
  • Vitamin C (15%)
  • Cocoa Butter
  • Rosehip Oil
  • Mango Butter
  • Grape seed Oil
  • Evening Primrose Oil

Rustic Chicken Noodle Soup

With all the early cold weather we have been having soup and stew have been on the dinner table all week. We had this soup last night and I must say it was probably one of the best chicken noodle soups I have ever had.

I didn’t really get the recipe from any one place it was more a combination of recipes I had seen online, a recipe my grandmother would make, and my own ideas. I am stunned how good this recipe turned out to be. It’s nice a hearty yet light and delicious.

What makes it kind of rustic in my opinion is that everything is basically a rough chop you don't really need to measure or be precise on anything just chop and go. This is a huge time save and makes for a hearty delicious soup!

It’s so easy to make its almost criminal. I had everything chopped and cooking in less than 30 minutes now that’s my kind of recipe. If you are looking for something quick, easy, and delicious this is the recipe.

One of my favorite parts of this recipe is the fact that most things in it are pantry staples so you don’t have to spend a fortune to make it. It’s a great way to use up left over chicken, pasta, and vegetables that will be leaving this world soon. This recipe could be a base for just about anything you want to add to it. Enjoy!
