What helps you slow down? As a busy mom who is often on the go, I have had to find ways to slow down, unwind and relax. While, I have a few ways to get to a point of relaxation, like putting on my favorite face mask or listening to music! Indulging on my favorite treat is also one of them. The Wallaby Organic Aussie Crème, which I pick up on my grocery trips to Sprouts Farmers Market, has become my favorite way to take a minute to slow down and relax!
The New Aussie Crème is available in three flavors; Spiced Peach, Strawberry Red Wine and Caramelized Pineapple. Not only are these flavors unique but they’re also delicious. My favorite flavor is the Strawberry Red Wine. There’s something about the flavor that I just love, it is so bold and its creamy texture is perfection!
Soups and Salads… I had this idea of only eating soups and salads for five days as some sort of cleanser last week. Especially since I had been eating out way too much the week before. See, I tend to cook most days and while I make no claims on how healthy my cooking may be, I feel like it’s better than eating out. Then there are days that all we do is eat out and after a few outings, I always feel a certain anxiety and need to get back to making home cooked meals.
Shrimp & Bacon Salad
For this salad, you’ll need lettuce, cabbage, carrots, shrimp and bacon. Cook the bacon and shrimp, this will take about 15 minutes. Chop the other ingredients and set aside. Once the meats are cooked slice the bacon into small pieces then serve meats over salad. I prefer to serve the shrimp whole but chopping it would be ok too.

Margaritas are my go-to cocktail, no matter the time of year. Whether I’m out with friends or hanging out at home, I love drinking margaritas. I’ll often stick to the classic but I also like trying other flavors. So, I recently made margaritas to enjoy at home with Torani® Syrups that I found at my local Kroger. With just a splash of Torani, I was able to quickly whip up margaritas in three delicious flavors; Raspberry, Mango and Passion Fruit. Each margarita was flavorful, delicious and refreshing. The best part is that the recipe to make these is super simple and only calls for five ingredients.
While I only purchased these three flavors to make the margaritas, I was impressed with the wide range of flavors Torani Syrups and Sauces offers. With so many flavors, it is easy to make any recipe your own! Plus, one flavor can be used to create endless recipes. Because ingredients are important, I like knowing that Torani syrups are made with real, simple ingredients like pure cane sugar and natural flavors.
Right now there’s a coupon available for $1 off any (1) Torani® Syrups and Sauces. Search for the offer on Kroger’s coupon gallery. Once you find the offer, just clip it to your card so you can redeem the next time you shop. So simple! To find Torani near you check here.
You guys, I went shopping at Kroger and found this Pork Roast No-Prep Carnitas Style Pack! Y’all know that I’m all about quick delicious meals, so I had to try it and share it with you. Don’t get me wrong, I love to cook, even meals that require lots of prep. But I think it’s important to have options that are quick to make. Especially when you have little ones who are hungry from one moment to the next.
I love that the Pork Roast was already prepped, which minimized my time in the kitchen. And the instructions were super easy and beyond straight forward. I literally placed the bag in a baking pan, placed it in the oven, added a timer and walked away – I did checked on it as it cooked but you get the point.

A Fútbol Fiesta with Beer Flights and Bites? Yes, please! In our home soccer is the ONE sport that we watch as a family; whether we are rooting for the same team or different teams. Our love for the sport is not only rooted in our heritage but also in our personal experiences. I played soccer in high school and so did my two sisters; and now my little ones are planning to play soccer, as they get older too.
Because this summer is the Summer of Soccer, we are getting ready to host a series of viewing parties. Especially, as we see Panama take part in what will be their first game ever in the history of the tournament – they had never participated before, so it’s a big deal in my home – therefore a celebration is mandatory!
To celebrate, I thought it would be perfect to host our Fútbol Fiesta with Beer Flights and Bites! After all, beer and fútbol just seem to go hand-in-hand. So to get ready, I visited the Katy Cost Plus World Market – find yours here. They have food and wine from over 50 countries and because I needed to get my hands on beers from around the world, it only made sense to shop there. Cost Plus World Market is this Summer of Soccer shopper’s one-stop shop for entertaining, decorating and food and drink needs at any budget. I was happy to have found exactly what I was looking for, at amazingly affordable prices.
Happy Tuesday! So weeknight meals need to be quick right? But also delicious! I wanted to try something different in last week, so I made these crispy ranch chicken wraps. And let me tell you that not only were they easy to make, but they were also very tasty. This four recipe meal was served in under thirty minutes and fed my little family of four. If you’re ready to make this, take notes…
Making the wraps
You will need about four chicken breasts, panko bread crumbs and oil to make the crispy chicken. Coat the chicken with the bread crumbs according to the instructions on the package of your bread crumbs of choice – and fry until golden. You will also need tortilla wraps, cilantro (optional) and cheese – lots of it. 😉
Once the chicken is done, place as many pieces as you’d like on the tortilla wrap, add cilantro and cheese. Close the wrap and place on a countertop grill for a few minutes, so that the cheese can melt. Remove from the grill and serve warm.
