Breakfast “Grilled Cheese”

21 Mar

Image

I’m normally a bacon and eggs kind of girl, but every once in a while I will crave syrupy sweetness in the morning, and this does the trick. I’m sure it be nice for a naughty late night snack as well. It is really easy, takes less then 6 minutes and you probably have the ingredients in your fridge.

Dessert/Breakfast “Grilled Cheese”
2 Eggo Waffles
Butter
Cream cheese
Jelly or Preserves (Whatever flavor suits you.)
Syrup & Powdered Sugar (Optional)

1. Heat up griddle on medium to high, Lightly butter both sides of  FROZEN Eggos and place on griddle.  When you feel them thaw a bit and get golden flip them, then add your desired amount of jelly and cream cheese.

2. Place other Eggo on top of the other, making a sandwich, and viola! I was extra bad and garnished with a little syrup and powdered sugar. Cut it, and shared it with my little one! We enjoy this indulgence together making it extra special!

(I took pictures on my phone so sorry for the quality) This picture does no justice for your taste buds!

Sunday, Funday, TV Recording Day!

11 Mar

Image

I’ve got so much TV shows recording on Sunday’s I literally have to record things the next day to catch them… and because Seth and I usually only have Sunday’s off together we usually spend it together doing family things, going out, housework, etc. So on following Mondays after my morning shift, I play catch up with my TV. 

Since last’s week premier of The Bible and Vikings, (which i absolutely love that they have finally made a mini series on History Channel that is actually educational but well get to that…) Plus,  Once Upon a Time, The Real Housewives of Atlanta, The Walking Dead, and Shahs of Sunset…and when in Season Dexter and coming up on the 31st, Games of Throne. That’s 7 hour long shows! Ha. I love having so many things to watch but never have I had so much to watch/record in one day. 

Now obviously Shahs of Sunset and really basically anything on Bravo is my guilty pleasure, Yes it probably destroys my brain with these crazy drama reality shows, but there is nothing more entertaining to watch and I will admit I use to say, “I will never watch any of those Real Housewives shows…” I retract that statement, they are phenomenal! You get sucked into it like a Honeybee to a Wild Flower and next thing you know you are watching all of them! I suggest starting off with The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

Now that we got my guilty pleasure off my chest let’s get into why I am blogging this..the two new miniseries of History Channel, The Bible and Vikings. Now I have only watch the first episodes, tonight’s has not been seen yet. I must say I am extremely impressed by the productions of both of these shows. The details and visuals of these shows are beautiful. I was really excited to see that Both did very well because I am a history buff and believe it or not when I’m not watching Bravo, I’m usually watching something on History channel.

 So feel free to share you comments, what did guys think or what have you guys have been watching and maybe I’ll check them out too! Thanks for readin’! 🙂 xoxo

Easy “One Bowl Messy” Banana Bread

6 Mar

I love bread. Seriously, I love bread, but bread from scratch is my favorite, so when I can, I make it! I had some super ripe bananas on my counter and decided I would try to make a recipe that would only involve one bowl getting messy. ( I hate it when there are a million bowls and spoons in the sink when I’m done baking.) The bread came out super moist, perfect level of sweetness, and even better with a warm cup of coffee or tea. My toddler loved it, and so did my co-workers. 🙂 Here is what you will need to make one loaf:

Easy “One Bowl Messy” Banana Bread
2 cups of all-purpose flour
4-5 ripe bananas
2 eggs
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 tablespoon cinnamon
Nuts are optional, I just didn’t have any

1. Preheat oven 350 degrees, In a mixer or big bowl, Mix on high, butter and sugar until evenly blended but still has a smooth butter texture, do not melt butter.

2. In same bowl add bananas, vanilla, and egg until well blended.

3. Add the rest of the ingredients. (Flour,baking soda,salt,cinnamon)

4. Grease a loaf pan, and fill it with a mixture. Bake for one hour, let sit for 10 minutes! (Check out that gorgeous corning pan. ;))

5. Enjoy! I served with butter and sprinkled a little powdered sugar for garnish, delish! xoxo

So I received Olay’s Fresh Effects Va-Va Vivid Powering system complimentary of Influenster last week, And I decided to do a full review on this because it works great and I want my followers to know about this wonderful product. Here’s some pros:

  • Affordable– $12.99 for brush $6.99 for 5.0z cleanser mask., other powering systems can run up to $200!!! Insane!!!
  • Smells Great– Citrusy and not chemically!
  • IT works! – I noticed it kills the shine and even reduces my pores, you can really feel it works, deep down in the skin, without being too rough on the skin! Trust me even my boyfriend noticed a difference and that’s saying something!
  • Shower usage-  You can use this in the shower, how easy is that? While you got that conditioner in that hair, use it for about 60 seconds and you’ve got a great deep clean super quick! Just don’t submerge in water!

Honestly I didn’t find any cons to this product, The contouring system could be bigger, but that’s about it! Anyways pick it up at a local drugstore, and you won’t be disappointed! xoxox!

Olay® Fresh Effects Va-Va-Vivid Powered Contour Cleansing System/Olay Fresh Effects Shine Minimizing Ceanser-So Amazing My favorite product that came in this sweetheart Box, affordable and works great! I saw a difference in my skin (and so did my bf) the first use. $12.99 for brush $6.99 for 5.0z cleanser mask.

Secret Clinical Strength Antiperspirant- IT SMELLS AMAZING!!! Like a citrus basket under your arms, It surprised me how well it worked because I do sweat more then a normal person. I usually have to put on deodorant multiple times a day and this worked the entire day. SO YES, I will be buying this. Prices very $7.99-$9.99, I think it’s worth it. Check it out!

Not Your Mother’s® She’s a Tease Volumizing Hair Spray– It’s a good hairspray, think for normal hair it worked better, Since my hair is so thick and heavy I don’t think it worked as well for the volumizing part, however it did hold my curly locks in all day. Smelt good as well. I liked that it didn’t leave my hair sticky and crunchy but rather manageable and bouncy! Full bottle size $6.00. Nice buy!

SkinnyGirl Daily On-The-Go Bars.-Only 180 calories a bar, Kosher, Gluten Free and All Natural. Pricey box of 5 bars $9.99 but defiantly kept me full and crave less throughout the day, not crazy on the Banana Chocolate flavor, but they do sell other flavors and I think i’d like them better. All arund healthy great snack.
