Tasty Tuesday: BBQ Pork Hash

This deliciousness came about the morning after Damien's birthday party, when I had an abundance of BBQ Pork & baked potatoes leftover. I'll admit, that I was a bit wary of how this would taste. But every flavor held its own without being too overbearing. And, since it was made mostly from leftovers, it gets bonus points for being one of the fastest breakfasts yet! 

Here's how simple it is to take leftover BBQ Pork & baked potatoes into a tasty BBQ Pork Hash (no real recipe required).

•Slice up the baked potatoes, fry them with a bit of olive oil & season with seasoned salt and black pepper.

•While the potatoes are frying, heat up the BBQ pork with a bit of extra BBQ sauce since the leftovers tend to get a bit dried out. 

•For the eggs, you can make sunny side up, over-easy or over-medium. Just be sure that you cook them in a bit of olive oil to help keep this already heavy dish on the lighter side. 

•To layer it all up, begin with the potatoes, BBQ pork, some shredded cheddar if you'd like) & the eggs. 

•Top it all off with some sour cream & green onion for a light finishing touch if you'd like & serve it with a side of toast.

Snacktastic Saturday: Easy Cinnamon Sugar Cornbread

Excuse me while I sound like a broken record & once again tell you how much I love fall (I really do). Fall is synonymous with comfort food. Which always makes me instantly think of a nice big pot of chili. But don't forget the cornbread. And cinnamon sugar. Wait, what?! 

Let me clarify that this cornbread isn't meant to be eaten with the chili (unless you want to). But it does make for an amazing afternoon snack or even a tasty breakfast. 

•Start with your favorite cornbread (I always double or sometimes even triple whatever recipe I'm making so that I have plenty left over.)
•Warm it up in the microwave for 15-20 seconds.
•Top it with a pat of butter & a generous sprinkling of cinnamon sugar.

Fun Friday: Cinnamon Stick Votive Holder

I love the smell of fall! It's pumpkins, caramel & cinnamon all rolled into one. So even though I'm a huge stickler for holiday decorations (you won't find any scarecrows at my house until November), I always have to make this Cinnamon Stick Votive Holder as soon as the season starts. 

As long as you have a few supplies, you can make this is less than 5 minutes. And that's including the amount of time it takes for your hot glue gun to heat up.

•glass votive holder with smooth sides (mine happens to be from a Glade candle)
•raffia paper (to make it easier to glue the cinnamon sticks on)
•cinnamon sticks
•twine or other kind of ribbon (optional, but it gives the votive holder a nice touch)

-Start by unrolling your raffia paper & cutting it to fit the size of your votive holder. Then glue it down with a line of hot glue. 
-Next, glue the cinnamon sticks in place on top of the raffia paper. 
-If you'd like, you can tie a bit of twine or ribbon around it all & secure it in place with a dot of hot glue.

Work It Wednesday: Age Smoothing Eye Serum from SOBO Skin Care

**Disclaimer: I have received products to try from SOBO Skin Care via BrandBacker & am simply sharing my personal opinion which may vary from yours. I was not compensated for this review.

I have a confession to make. For years, I applied hemorrhoid cream under my eyes. First, let me start by saying that I saw this on Models, Inc., another Aaron Spelling creation back in his 90210 & Melrose Place days. I could never tell if it helped my puffy eyes, but boy could you tell when I didn't put it on! Flash forward to the current decade & my eyes are still puffy daily. But I've moved on from the hemorrhoid cream & finally found something that has a notable difference aside form being able to tell when I didn't put it on. 

 This Age Smoothing Eye Serum is downright amazing! Even with it being a 5ml sample bottle (I'm seriously considering investing in the full size 15ml bottle for $42). 

The first thing I noticed was that the serum itself felt greasy. Like really greasy. Which had me running to the mirror to check out just how bad it was. I was shocked! There was no greasy residue at all! Instead, I had a soft, almost matte-like finish underneath my eyes. I pretty much fell in love with this stuff right there, before even discovering if the product actually worked or not. 

The main thing I noticed, was how well my concealer stayed put under my eyes. I'm used to applying it numerous times a day (heaven forbid if I watch a sappy movie or it's allergy season), but never gave another application a second thought when I applied the serum. Usually, I only apply something like this once a day, but seeing as how I was pleasantly surprised by the results I was seeing, I decided to actually follow the directions & apply it every morning & night. Of course I did still have some bags under my eyes (I contribute that to being a busy mom of three small kids), but nowhere near what they usually look like.

So by now, I know you're wondering what makes the Age Smoothing Eye Serum work. The most notable reason, is that this is a silicone-based moisturizer, which protects the skin around the eyes from puffiness, dryness & other harmful elements. Which basically means, no more tired looking eyes (hooray!). This serum also contains a collection of essential lipids that accelerates healing & promotes the production of healthy skin cells (making it perfect for after microdermabrasion & laser therapy). And let's not overlook that it is a hypoallergenic formula, so anyone can use it. 

SOBO Skin Care focuses on delivering products that are as natural as possible, without compromising the efficacy that women expect. Their products contain no parabens, sulfates, phthalates, GMO's, synthetic dyes or fragrances, or triclosan. They're also not tested on animals.

Eclair Goes to Stella's Book Tour & Giveaway!


Hi, I’m Éclair and I’m seven. My sister Meggie is two. When mom got sick we had to go live with Stella, my dad’s mom, the one with maroon colored hair. I begged Dad not to make us stay with her because she beat her horse and was going to eat her rooster, but he didn’t believe me. Even after I pretended I was going to barf, he left us with Stella.

So there we were, Meggie and me, on a strange pink farm with a skinny horse, a mean rooster, and Stinky Stella who had a living room filled with dead deer heads.

What would she do to us?

Would we end up on her wall too?

Snacktastic Saturday: Pumpkin Spice Latte

Fall is officially almost here! It's not the crunching of the leaves that tells you, but the arrival of Pumpkin Spice Lattes at coffee shops everywhere. Unfortunately for me, making a daily visit to a coffee shop is out of the question. But that's okay since I can enjoy a Pumpkin Spice Latte without even leaving my home, whenever I want. 

I keep it simple when it comes to making a Pumpkin Spice Latte & make it in the mug itself (hence why there's a bit of pumpkin along the edges of the cup). 

print recipe

Pumpkin Spice Latte
Forget seasonal, enjoy a Pumpkin Spice Latte at home whenever you're in the mood for one!
  • 3/4 C. milk
  • 2 Tbsp. pure maple syrup
  • 3 Tbsp. pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 C. freshly brewed strong black coffee

•In a large cafe mug, combine first 5 ingredients & heat in the microwave.  •Use an immersion blender to thoroughly blend & create some froth.

Fun Friday: Pom Pom Bookmark

Lately I've been on a huge reading kick. But of course, I have three very busy kids & it can take me a couple hours just to read a single chapter sometimes. But what's worse than taking forever to be able to read just a little bit, is when you go to where you left off, only you don't know where that is. Of course a bookmark is the most logical solution since I'm not a page folder. The only problem with that, is the fact that my kids are currently obsessed with bookmarks. They disappear constantly. So I decided to make myself a bookmark that would make it easy to tell when it got swiped. Bonus points for being "fun" so I usually catch the bookmark bandit playing with it moments later. 

Making this Pom Pom Bookmark was super easy! Just take some yarn & wrap it around your fingers a million times (This one is 120 & it is HUGE, but 50-90 would probably be more suitable). Then all you have to do is slide the yarn off your fingers, take a small piece of yarn,tie it securely in the middle & cut all of the looped pieces open. This is now the part where you tie on a tail, or tie it onto a paperclip. Once you start snipping away like Edward Scissorhands to give the pom pom it's round shape, it will be a huge pain to attach it to anything. Unless you make a monstrous one like me. Which is only necessary if you have a bookmark bandit at your house too.

Think It Thursday: Never Forget

• 8:46 a.m. - American Airlines Flight 11 with 81 passengers & 11 crew members on board, crashes into the North Tower of the World Trade Center.

• 9:03 a.m. - United Airlines Flight 175 with 56 passengers & 9 crew members on board, crashes into the South Tower of the World Trade Center.

• 9:37 a.m. - American Airlines Flight 77 with 58 passengers & 6 crew members on board, crashes into the Pentagon. 125 personnel were lost.

• 10:03 a.m. - United Airlines Flight 93 with 37 passengers & 7 crew members on board, crashes in a field in Somerset County, Pennsylvania.  

Just like everyone else, I remember that day vividly. I was on my way to work from a meeting when news of the first plane hitting the North Tower came over the radio. 

I worked at a kiosk, located in the electronics department of Sears. There was a bunch of us, keeping close to the TV's, so we could find out what the reports were saying, while still looking like we were working. When the second plane came into sight, everyone stopped. We watched it crash into the South Tower on about 50 TV's at once. It made the moment more surreal. 

After the South Tower was struck, it's a bit of a haze as to what happened next. I'm not sure if we were sent home before or after the third plane struck the Pentagon. But since I worked for a cellular company at the time & towers everywhere were being jammed, there was no reason for me to be there. 

When I heard about the fourth plane, I was instantly worried. The reports were just all saying near Johnstown, Pennsylvania & I have family there. Luckily, they weren't harmed.

So many people lost their lives that day, both in the sky & on the ground. They are all strangers to me, but I can promise them this.... I will never forget you!

Potty Training with Pull-Ups Big Kid Academy

Thank you to Pull-Ups for sponsoring today's post & helping me Potty Train with the Big Kid Academy. 

Potty training your toddler. Every parent goes through it. Sometimes it's a piece of cake, others...not so much. But luckily for all of us, Pull-Ups Big Kid Academy is there with us every step of the way! 

Hayden, my adorable & feisty little toddler, is officially on her way to being a big girl. We've ditched the diapers, loaded up on Pull-Ups (Doc McStuffins of course) & made a big deal about it every step of the way. You see, every child is different & for her, it's like she's rehearsing for her Emmy win.

5 Key Steps for Potty Training Girls
Watch for cues - So how did I know that Hayden was finally ready to buckle down & hop on the potty train? Well, it was simple, she told me. No, she didn't exactly say that she was ready (at least not like that), but letting me know immediately after she soiled her diaper (or occasionally before), was a sure sign. 

   Go the extra mile -Here's a couple tricks that I have up my sleeve. Since everything must be a huge production for my little one, a standard pack of Pull-Ups just wouldn't do. We went big (go big or go home, right?) & purchased one of the Doc McStuffins Pull-Ups Starter Kit (a.k.a. - the treasure chest!). Not only can she use the chest for whatever her little heart desires, but it also comes with Big Kid flushable wipes, a progress chart, reward stickers, a free Disney digital book & a coupon booklet. 

Be persistent & develop a routine - Of course persistence & a routine are the building blocks of potty training. I have to keep track of when she drinks, so that we can go sit on the potty about 10 minutes later (& for at least 5 minutes). Every morning when she wakes up & every night before she goes to bed are important too. Not to mention much easier to get her in the swing of when she sees me doing the same thing. 

Use any resources available - Of course I'm no potty training expert. But I did sign up for Pull-Ups Big Kid Academy! (Hey, that's got to count for something, right?) There you'll find everything you need when it comes to potty training your toddler. Fun activities like learning the Potty Dance, tips & advice (from parenting experts, medical professionals & regular parents...like you!), a list of products & coupons. 

Reward accordingly - But the best part, will be Hayden's ultimate reward! Of course peeing in the potty earns a sticker on her chart. But pooping in the potty gets her a "pooping in the potty princess party with pink cupcakes"! (Shout out to our family doctor for his amazing idea!) 

What are some of your tips & tricks when it comes to potty training?

Work It Wednesday: NeoCell Beauty Bursts & a Giveaway!

**Disclaimer: I have received products to try from NeoCell & am simply sharing my personal opinion which may vary from yours. I was not compensated for this review.

As women, we all want beautiful radiant skin, along with strong hair & nails. For some, it all seems to come almost effortlessly, while others are willing to try a plethora of beauty products to get these desired results. Well guess what, ladies, you only need one product to help get the results you crave. 

NeoCell has been developing and manufacturing all natural, premium anti-aging formulas for over 20 years and is the leading Collagen brand in the world. Our products are naturally based, not synthetic, and are designed to promote youthful health, beauty and total body wellness. We manufacture our own products using carefully sourced food-grade raw materials and our facility exceeds all GMP standards.We strive to continuously bring the best to our customers– products that we and our own families are proud to use, made with Nutrients You Can Trust®.

Beauty Bursts from NeoCell, are made with three key ingredients. Collagen (1&3), is the body's beauty protein which gives you smooth skin and strong hair & nails. Vitamin C, which is a natural collagen enhancer. And hyaluronic acid, for optimum skin hydration & renewal.

I have to say that I was extra excited to try these. I can be bad about remembering to take a vitamin daily, but you better believe that I'm good about taking things that taste like candy! Especially when they look like individually wrapped candies when you open the bag. 

Contains other ingredients such as: rice syrup, dried cane syrup, cocoa, sunflower oil & glycerin.

But as excited as I was to try the fresh mint chocolate flavor, I have to admit that I didn't quite care for them. But I totally blame that on my love for dark chocolate. Especially since I let a friend of mine try these & she wanted to eat the whole bag! (Remember, these are not candy no matter what they look & taste like!)

Contains other ingredients such as: rice syrup, dried cane syrup, sunflower oil, citric acid, fruit & vegetable juice & glycerin.

The super fruit punch Beauty Bursts were a completely different story! I didn't think that I would care for these very much, but they were so good. They reminded me of Starburst candies, only much better for you. 

So now I know you wondering how well they actually work. 

After about 1-2 weeks of 2 chews a day (suggested amount is 2-4 chews daily), I noticed the difference first in my hair. I have super long hair, that is forever breaking, especially when I brush it. After one particular brushing, I looked at my brush to see what the damage was like usual, but I was shocked that there wasn't as much hair collected as there usually is. I chalked it up to a fluke, although we all know that that actually makes no sense. But again the next day, it was the same thing with less hair left behind in my brush. After a few days, I decided that these were freaking awesome!!! 

Of course after a while I noticed that my skin was much clearer & old acne scars seems to be evening out a bit. But the one thing that I didn't notice, was the difference in my nails. But let me say that they didn't stand a chance in the first place since we've been working on projects around our house & on my in-laws major fixer upper. (Sand paper is never your BFF!)

Beauty Bursts are gluten free & do not contain soy, wheat, lactose, palm oil, starch, yeast or artificial flavors. 

One lucky winner will get to discover "beauty from within" for themselves!

The giveaway will conclude on at 12:00 a.m. est on Thursday 9/11/14. Winners will be announced via rafflecopter & in a separate blog post which will be published no later than 3:00 p.m. on Thursday 9/11/14. Winners will also be notified via email & announced on the Smith and Blessings facebook page. Winners will have 48 hours to submit shipping information, which will then be passed on to NeoCell for distribution of product. If 48 hours has lapsed, a new winner will be picked & then will also have 48 hours to submit their information. Smith and Blessings is not responsible for prize shipment.

Tasty Tuesday: Breakfast Roll-Ups

So the other morning I wanted something different for breakfast. Unfortunately, I really didn't feel like making anything too extravagant & only had some sausage links to work with. That's when it hit me.

These Breakfast Roll-Ups are insanely simple to make, not to mention a huge hit with the family. I mean sure, they still have that "regular ol' breakfast" taste, it's just a whole new way to eat it. 

All you need is your favorite pancake batter recipe, (just add a bit of water to thin it out a bit & keep the pancakes "silver dollar" size), sausage links, scrambled eggs, shredded cheddar cheese & a dish of maple syrup. 

But just as a fair warning, especially if you serve these to children, they can get extremely messy. So just be ready with a wet washrag to clean them up before they touch...anything.

Messy Monday: Simple DIY Degreaser

Grease. It seems to get everywhere in my kitchen. Of course I'm sure that this wonderful humid summer we're having & my ceiling fan in the kitchen being on almost nonstop, had a bit to do with that problem too. But I'm not really a fan of spraying a chemical degreaser while the fan is on. Let alone when the fan is on & it still feels like a million degrees. 

This Simple DIY Degreaser is super easy to make & use. Of course if you have a really tough job, you may need to add a bit of elbow grease to the mix, which is no different if you used a store bought degreaser.

•1 part water
•1 part distilled white vinegar
•1-2 Tbsp. grease fighting dish soap (like Dawn)

Add all of the ingredients in a spray bottle & give it a gentle shake to blend. 

To use, simply spray degreaser onto surface or (directly onto a rag) & wipe off.

The Girl in White Pajamas & a Giveaway!

When Officer Bud the PR face of the Boston Police Department is gunned down, his brother, Bogie McGruder, returns from Palm Beach for the funeral. Since the BPD is investigating the death of one of their own, Bogie believes his trip to Boston will be a short condolence visit and a chance to meet his secret love child.

But interacting with a family fueled by alcohol and mired in scandals, Bogie is reminded why he does investigations for his Boston based company from a computer in Florida. Although Bogie wants to contact his ex-lover, Bailey Hampfield, he’s reluctant to do so since Bailey dumped him four years earlier. Knowing that Bailey had his child after she cut him loose, Bogie ponders how he can establish a relationship with the three year old daughter he’s never met. While he thinks about it, Bailey gets in touch with him and asks for protection. Someone is trying to kill her.

By the time Bogie meets Isabella, it’s apparent that he still loves the mother and adores the child. Bogie tells himself that he’s not interested in the BPD investigation into Bud’s death, but he continues to be drawn into it while trying to discover who is attempting to kill Bailey. The investigations seem to parallel each other, then intersect and become intertwined. As the story develops, Isabella, a precocious child obsessed with martial arts, slowly becomes the focus.

The underlying theme of this mystery is lies. Everyone seems to be running on lies and half truths. The only pure and true character is The Girl in White Pajamas.

About the Author
Chris Birdy was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. After graduating from high school, she did a four year stint in the Middle East. When she returned to the States, Chris settled down in the Boston area and became a true Bostonian by collecting college degrees while raising a family.

For more than twenty years, Chris has been a member of the legal community performing investigative work for Boston law firms conducting business in rough housing projects and crack house neighborhoods.  Several years ago, while sitting in a courtroom with a client, Chris watched as a police officer was lambasted by an attorney. The attorney was defending a young woman who crashed her car into two other vehicles before she passed out drunk behind the wheel. The occupants of the other cars were seriously hurt and the cop, a former EMT, tried to assist the injured while waiting for ambulances to arrive. The attorney questioned the cop's every move, shredded his testimony and made him seem inept. Embarrassed, the cop returned to his seat beside me and muttered, "Everybody lies. The judges lie, the lawyers lie, the witnesses lie.."  Chris wanted to tell him not to worry that in about five years he'd be just as good a liar as they were. The seeds for The Girl in White Pajamas were planted in that courtroom.

Chris lives outside of Boston and in Palm Beach, Florida with her husband.

My Review

This story begins with a plethora of characters in several different settings, yet eventually, you come to know how they're intertwined by both blood & lies. I started reading this carefully, to make sure I had all of the players straight, but before I knew it, there were so many crazy people that I just couldn't keep track of them all.

I have to say that I called at least part of the ending about halfway through the book. But I had no idea what kind of ride it was going to be in order to get there! This story is filled with Boston grit, lost loves, humorous wit, deceit, eccentric families & murder. 

I don't want to give any details away (that would spoil it), but I read this book in a couple days (unheard of in my house) & can't wait to start the next one in the series!

I received this book to review through Beck Valley Books Book Tours, all the opinions above are 100% my own.
