Awesome New DVD from Disney Junior for Doc McStuffins & her new Mobile Clinic! Check it out!

 New on DVD! Five Fun-Filled Episodes of Disney Junior’s Acclaimed
Animated Series “Doc McStuffins”
Doc McStuffins Mobile Clinic DVD

Thank you Disney Junior for sponsoring this review/post

My daughter is a HUGE Doc McStuffins fan and its one of the Disney Junior shows that I too am excited to see new episodes of (shhhh don’t tell anyone, I love it too!). If you personally have not tried it I would suggest that you give an episode a try. Here is a little clip to give you a small taste of this hit Disney Junior Show!

Disney Junior just released on Tuesday, March 18, 2014 a new addition to the Doc McStuffins DVD collection with the new DVD “Doc McStuffins: Mobile Clinic.”  One thing that my daughter LOVED about this DVD (and so did I) was that it was packaged with a FREE “Doc McStuffins” reusable tote bag which is super cute!  Perfect to use for a lunch or snack bag. My daughter loves to use it to take DVDs back and forth to day care or Grandma’s House!

This DVD is packed with 5 episodes that will keep your kids entertained for hours. The episodes include:

  1. Doc McStuffins Goes McMobile / Chip Off the Ol’ Box
  2. Doc to The Rescue / Don’t Knock the Noggin
  3. Out of The Box / Run Down Race Car
  4. Rescue Rhonda, Ready For Takeoff / All Washed Up
  5. Rest Your Rotors, Rhonda! / Keep on Truckin’

In this DVD we see that Doc McStuffins is back to save the day and this time, she is mobile! I really love her new mobile clinic.  After building a mobile clinic with her dad, Doc is able to make house calls to help toys in need when she’s away from her own backyard clinic. The Doc Mobile comes equipped with everything she needs to fix toys good as new. This DVD would make a great addition to an Easter Basket, or even for a gift for a little one.

We loved this DVD and have watched it a few times since it has arrived. Your little one will fall in love with Doc McStuffins and her new mobile clinic!  The adventures are getting better and better!

Awesome new cookbook – 250 Best Meals in a Mug: Delicious Homemade Microwave Meals in Minutes

book1
Thank you Robert Rose Publisher for sponsoring this review/post

I really enjoy trying new recipes and finding easy yet yummy recipes to enjoy for breakfast, lunch and dinner. As a busy Mom sometimes I want things that are easy to make, good to eat, with a quick and easy clean up. So I was excited to learn about a new cookbook by Camilla V Saulsbury called 250 Best Meals in a Mug!  This cookbook is packed with so many amazing and delicious recipes that you can make in a mug via the microwave in minutes.

Meals in a mug are a perfect solution for those needing a quick dinner while solo dining!  They are also quick and easy options for busy people. I love being able to make these while we need to run out of the house for t-ball games and practice. Not only was it easy to make but the mug makes it easy to take along and eat on the go.  Most of the recipes are also very budget-friendly, so if you are trying to save money, waste less food, and work on portion control this would be a great cookbook for you!

book2One thing that I can really appreciate about this cookbook is that the recipes are very easy to follow, have wonderful step by step directions. Above is a photo of the French Toast recipes from page 85. An amazing Breakfast idea that you can make in a mug. Not only do they have the French Toast recipe listed above but they also have, Banana Bread, Almond Flour Muffin, Green Onion Bread, Zucchini Bread, Apple Cinnamon Bread, Boston Brown Bread and many many more.

There is a great section in the book called – Fast & Easy 4-Ingredients or Less – this section has some yummy options like, Pumpkin Sage Soup, Pesto Chicken Couscous and more. And who doesn’t love Dessert. I know that I do, but one thing that I really hate is having to make a huge cake or a large batch of cookies or cupcakes because I want to keep eating them. So Mug Deserts are the perfect solution to my problem. They have some great ones like Sugar Cookie, Chocolate Fudge Cake, Blueberry Dumpling, Bananas Foster, Lemon Pudding Cake, Butterscotch Blondie, Panna Cotta and more.

I am so grateful to be able to share one of the amazing recipes with you:

unnamed

Double Lemon Cake, page 277, Desserts

Heaps of citrus zing, minimal ingredients, delicious, ready in minutes — what more could you want from a lemon cake?

16-oz (500 mL) mug, sprayed with nonstick cooking spray

Cake

  • 3 tbsp all-purpose flour 45 mL
  • 1?4 tsp baking powder 1 mL
  • 1?8 tsp salt 0.5 mL
  • 1 large egg 1
  • 3 tbsp granulated sugar 45 mL
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil 30 mL
  • 1 tsp finely grated lemon zest 5 mL
  • 1?2 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice 22 mL

Icing

  • 1?3 cup confectioners’ (icing) sugar 75 mL
  • 1?2 tsp freshly squeezed lemon juice 7 mL

Cake: In the mug, combine flour, baking powder and salt. Using a fork, beat in egg, sugar, oil, lemon zest and lemon juice until very well blended. Microwave on High for 11?2 to 2 minutes (checking at 11?2) or until risen and center is just set. Let cool slightly or entirely in mug. Eat directly from mug or gently remove to a small plate.

Icing: In a small bowl or cup, use a fork to stir confectioners’ sugar and lemon juice until smooth. Drizzle over cake.

Tips

  • Using oil, instead of butter, in this recipe helps to keep the cake extra-moist.
  • You can use 1?8 tsp (0.5 mL) lemon extract in place of the lemon zest.

Prep Ahead Option

Combine the flour, baking powder and salt in the mug; cover and store at room temperature. Whisk the egg in a small airtight container, then add sugar, oil, lemon zest and lemon juice; cover and refrigerate. Prepare the icing in a small airtight container; cover and refrigerate until ready to use.

book3This cookbook also has many full page color photos so that you can see how yummy and delicious some of the recipes will be. They make me so hungry looking at them. This book is 312 pages, and was released this month (March 2014) with a suggested retail price of $24.95 its a must have in any cookbook collection.  These recipes would be great for making while camping and in an RV, or at lunch!

Make Summer Fun for enjoyable with Joe Shade – Not your Average Shade!

Joe Shade LogoThank you Joe Shade for sponsoring this review/post

My daughter started t-ball this year, which I was so excited about until the first afternoon practice. It can get so hot, and the sun beating down on your skin is not good. I am very fair skinned so I knew I needed to find something that would help protect me and my family. However the standard umbrellas on the market just could not handle it. So when I found Joe Shade I knew they were onto something. This is “not your average joe. not your average shade.”

Here is a little about Joe Shade from the company website:

JoeShade® portable sun shade umbrella was invented out of our passion for youth sports and a necessity to be comfortable on the sidelines.

In 2002, while coaching little league baseball, we noticed parents and grandparents swapping turns holding beach umbrellas trying to get some shade from the blistering sun rays.  We also noticed parents taking breaks to sit in their air conditioned cars, but were missing their child’s best at-bats or game saving plays. We came up with the perfect solution — JoeShade, the portable, instant shade that keeps you cool and protected on the sidelines.

And what an amazing product they have been able to provide us. Here is a short commercial that they have created for their product to give you a live demonstration of the Joe Shade.

The Joe Shade is available in BLUEGREEN, and now RED!  I selected the Blue as it is my favorite color. I love that the Joe Shade comes in an easy to carry bag, so its easy to take with you no matter where you are going.Joe Shade bag

When the Jose Shade arrived I was surprised at how lightweight and small the package really was. Once I get everything out the box I was worried that me by myself would have an issue setting it up. But it quickly went together and I was able to enjoy my daughters practice.

Joe Shade out of bagIn addition to being easy to set up you are able to quickly and easily adjust the umbrella so that you can block the sun as it moves during practice. This was a very impressive feature that makes this product a must own. Another feature that I was excited to learn about was that they have a special fabric that is able to block 99.9% of the harmful UVA and UVB rays!

unnamedThis is an important feature to me because my grandfather was diagnosed with skin cancer a few years back. So because of that we have learned more and more about how harmful the sun can be, and how important it is to protect yourself. Our family all loves spending summer afternoon out enjoying the weather and the fun but the Sun can make it difficult to really enjoy however take the job with you and you always be able to enjoy the fun summer sunny days.

Joe Shade under

The tilt function is amazing, since it allows for you to adjust the angle at which the umbrella is. They have also made sure to include wind vents and a broader base with stakes (if needed) to help with the stability of the umbrella. Making it possible to use during windy days. This is important because you still need to protect your skin on windy days.

Joe Shade baseThe shade stand is also adjustable giving you another way to adjust the shade, you are able to have it as low as 3ft. Perfect when sitting on the grass, to as high as 8 ft which might be needed depending on the chair or bleachers that you are in.  The umbrella is a generous 60″ in diameter offering more shade and more valuable protection.

Overall I am very pleased with this amazing product, and priced at $33.95 they have made it affordable which is important. Click HERE to learn more about this amazing product and to order yours today!

Shop it Up - 3They also did a great job add bar codes to the “boxes” and “cans” so that your child can actually have something to scan when ringing up the shopping basket of goodies that your little one will fill up.

#ad Dinner Idea with Tyson Gluten Free Grilled & Ready! Must Try Gluten-Free Cooking – #shop #CookitGF #Cbias

I am a member of the Collective Bias®  Social Fabric® Community. This shop has been compensated as part of a social shopper amplification for Collective Bias and its advertiser

imagesC5Q3610MAre you trying to go Gluten-Free? Looking for new Gluten-Free Recipes?

 #CookitGF

The more and more I read about gluten the more determined I have been to remove it from my diet and my families diet. Here is a little information from the Mayo Clinic Website:

A gluten-free diet is a diet that excludes the protein gluten. Gluten is found in grains such as wheat, barley, rye and triticale (a cross between wheat and rye).

A gluten-free diet is used to treat celiac disease. Gluten causes inflammation in the small intestines of people with celiac disease. Eating a gluten-free diet helps people with celiac disease control their signs and symptoms and prevent complications.

So when given an opportunity with #cbias to try the new  Tyson Gluten Free Grilled & Ready Chicken Breast Fillets  available at Sam’s Club and create a Gluten-Free Chicken dinner for my family I was beyond excited.

unnamed

We decided to try out two new “dinner ideas” with this easy to make chicken. One thing that I was excited to see is that these Grill Chicken Breast Fillets are Fully Cooked and can be heated in the microwave (about 2 1/2 to 3 minutes a fillet) or in the oven. When I opened up the bag I was impressed with how large the fillets are.

GFTyson2

The first dinner that we made which would be great for lunch or dinner is an amazing Chicken Chopped Salad. Its easy to make and yummy to eat. I made a double batch so that my husband and I could enjoy it for lunch the next day as well.

Ingredients

  • 1                     Large carrot  (gratted/chopped)
  • 1-3                 Green Onions   (finely chopped)
  • 1.5 cup          Cabbage        (finely chopped)
  • 3 cup             Lettuce        (finely chopped)
  • 1/4 cup          Cilantro (finely chopped)
  • 1-2                  Tyson Gluten Free Chicken Fillets (chopped)
  • 1/4 cup           Pumpkin seeds
  • Dressing of your choice

Directions

Mix carrots, cabbage, lettuce into a bowl (toss in dressing if you would like now), then plate.

GFTyson3

Sprinkle on seeds, add Tyson Gluten Free – Grill and Ready Chicken to top of salad pile, top with green onions and cilantro. ENJOY!

 

GFTyson4

Another great idea for dinner is a Gluten Free Pasta, tossed in a sauce of your choice (we used a cream sauce) and topped with Tyson Gluten Free Chicken and parmesan Cheese. Its easy to make, just cook the gluten free pasta as directed on the box, heat sauce of choice, drain pasta, toss in sauce and top with chicken and parmesan cheese. YUMMY!

GFTyson8
Overall I have been very pleased with the Tyson Gluten Free Grilled & Ready and have started looking for more ways to enjoy it. Want to try it before you buy it?  You can check out in-store demos at Sam’s Club on March 14th & 15th, click HERE to find a store near you.

Sofia 1

They did a great job with the CD. My daughter has really enjoyed playing the CD in her karaoke machine and dancing along.  Which is perfect because the CD has 4 tracks that are just instrumentals with just some background vocals perfect for her to karaoke to! She was so surprised when she got to the 15th song because its a duet between Sophia the First and Jake from the Neverland Pirates. Two of her favorite shows in one amazing song!

Sofia 2

Another great added touch was that the CD insert had pictures of Sophia the First that can be cut out and colored. My daughter had a great time listening to the music while she colored new photos for the fridge. Disney and Disney Jr do an amazing job to add extra value to their items. This is just one more GREAT example. This CD was released on January 28, 2014, so is currently available in stores now!

Check out the AWESOME @MegaBloks #Barbie Build ’n Play Luxe Camper

Mega BloksThank you Mega Bloks for sponsoring this review/post

Mega Bloks is one of those brands that I know and trust. So I am so thankful to have yet another amazing opportunity to work with them again.  If you missed my earlier reviews, here is a little about Mega Bloks from the company website:
MEGA Brands is a trusted global industry leader in the design, manufacture and distribution of construction toys, arts and crafts, puzzles, games, presentation boards and stationery. Our toys are recognized for innovation, educational value and endless possibilities for immersive play and entertainment.
This time around I received the Mega Bloks – Barbie – Build ’n Play Luxe Camper.
barbie 1Here is the product description from the company website:
Barbie® and her little sister Chelsea® head out on a coast to coast, fun-filled road trip in the Mega Bloks Barbie® Build ’n Play Luxe Camper. Build and decorate the sparkling pink camper any way you want as Barbie® and Chelsea® visit all of their favorite attractions and hottest stores. Now it’s time to unwind and take a dip in the hot tub before setting up the picnic table for a tasty treat. Later, Barbie® builds a fire and lazes around on a lounge chair, while Chelsea® heads out for a quick scooter ride. Glamping has never been more relaxing!
I grew up playing with Barbie so I was very excited to bring a new dimension of Barbie into the home to share with my daughter. The summer months are always filled with family trips, camping and just family fun this camper is just that for Barbie and Chelsea. I love all the detail that was included when making this collection. Barbie comes in multiple pieces so you actually get to make Barbie when your kit arrives my daughter thought that was really cool.
barbie 3Everything that we have put together from this make about collection has been easy to build and fun to make as you see from the photo above this is how Barbie arrives to you but a few snaps and clicks and this is how she turn out to be.
barbie 4This collection comes a very easy-to-follow directions. I like that the directions are step-by-step and with pictures so no matter if your child can read and understand yet they will easily be able to follow the directions to build Barbie’s camper and accessories.
barbie 2And Barbie wouldn’t be complete without all her fun accessories and outfit changes so I love the added touch of having additional outfits and accessories for Barbie and her friends.
barbie 6Overall I’m very pleased with this amazing collection that I received all the added details, multiple variations, and hours of fun that were packed into this box are amazing. Censuses arrived my daughter and I have had hours of fun trying to build the camper. I say trying because of the three-year-old (almost 4) she thinks she knows how to do it all so as I try to build it following the directions she quickly tells me have wrong and takes it apart. Slow progress but we’ll get there. Even without a completed camper she’s having a blast with Barbie and Chelsea and all the accessories and additional pieces that came in this collection. Just like every other product from Mega Bloks that I have received I am beyond impressed with the quality workmanship that went into this amazing collection. This would make a wonderful gift for any little one that has a birthday or even start collecting now for Christmas or have around for good grades right before summer starts.
barbie 5This collection retails for $29.99 and I think is well worth it. For more information on this collection click HERE! Combine your Build ‘n Play Luxe Camper with other Mega Bloks Barbie® sets and build the Barbie® world you imagine! Ideal for ages 4-10!
