How to Satisfy Summer Time Antojos? Try a belVita Breakfast Parfait

This post is sponsored by NABISCO but all opinions are my own.

Summer is here and we are taking time to slow down and satisfy our antojos with quick but delicious recipes. One of the ways my family slows down is by doing things differently, like having breakfast in bed. 🙂 It’s the perfect way to satisfy our antojos and bond as a family. We have a handful of recipes that we love but the Make-it-Your-Own belVita Breakfast Parfait recipe is at the top of our list. It is a simple to follow recipe which only calls for a handful of ingredients and can be done in 10 minutes. Yes, you read that right!

The ingredient that we love most and always have in our home is the belVita Breakfast Biscuits. These are a go-to for my family and while we mostly eat them while on the go, it’s a snack that brings us together. The girls love sharing the belVita Cinnamon Brown Sugar Breakfast Biscuits, their favorite flavor. Now that it’s summer and we’re spending more time at home, it’s nice to be able to slow down and savor them.

Being able to incorporate them into delicious recipes like this belVita Breakfast Parfait is a plus. This fun recipe has helped us make some fun memories already. The girls have not stopped talking about this delicious breakfast idea!

They really enjoyed helping me pick up all of the ingredients that we needed to make the recipe at our local H-E-B. They agreed on what day we could have breakfast in bed because we needed to make sure Papi was home to enjoy this moment with us. And they each picked what jobs they would do with my supervision, of course. Nalani crumbled the biscuits because she is the smallest and did a great job at it. While, Nayelli helped me measure the ingredients; the yogurt, honey, pineapple and flaked coconut. It was my job to blend the yogurt and honey and put together each layer of the parfaits. At some point Nayelli took over as supervisor and kept saying, “Mami make sure to do the layers right!” 🙂

While we used the same ingredients as the original recipe, there are other options. You can use your favorite variety of belVita Breakfast Biscuits for example, or even add your favorite fresh fruit, like chopped peaches or sliced strawberries. These parfaits are truly a delicious treat in the morning; while being a nutritious and balanced breakfast. Did you know that belVita Breakfast Biscuits provide nutritious steady morning energy and 19g of whole grains? That’s one of the reasons why they’re mama approved and a regular in our home. 😉

If you’re looking to switch things up, I think you’ve found a recipe that will bring everyone together for breakfast! Save this recipe, head to your local H-E-B to pick up the ingredients for this recipe and give in to your antojos. But don’t forget to use the digital coupon offer to save $1.00 when you buy two (2) participating NABISCO products.

How I’m Preparing for Back to School with Dollar General

This post is sponsored by Dollar General but all the content and opinions expressed here are my own.

Summer is in full swing and while we’re enjoying it to the fullest, I am thinking ahead to back-to-school season! When I learned about Dollar General’s Teachers List feature online, I thought I’d get a head start on my shopping. This new feature gives parents access to the school supply list by simply entering the zip code. 😃 

As a mom, I’m always looking for a great deal, that’s why I love shopping at Dollar General, I can always find our favorite brands at affordable pricing. While shopping at our local store, I found everything the girls needed, from drinks and snacks to backpacks and lunch kits.

I made sure to pick up some of our favorites for their lunches; like the Good & Smart Cranberry Trail Mix which is packed with protein and their Milk Chocolate Bars a sweet treat and participating item of the Dollar General Literacy Foundation. Program which gives back to the Dollar General Literacy Foundation. When you purchase 1 of the products shown, 100% of proceeds go to the DG Literacy Foundation. 

This is important to me and family, because we like being involved in giving back. You can find ways to give back this back-to-school season too by learning more about the program here: https://www.dgliteracy.org/

If you’ve been coming here for a while, you know I have two girls. Well, this year’s back to school prep is a little different because both girls are going to school, one to fourth and one to preschool! This means double supplies but with the Spend $15 Save $5, I’ve got nothing to worry about. 

I was even able to get a few items to help their teachers get ready for this school year. Although, Dollar General is already helping teachers by offering a 20% OFF Teacher’s Discount when they show their school badge at the register. I wanted to do something extra, so I picked up a few cleaning supplies for the classroom and a few treats for them too. 

The girls thought this was a great idea and even though they don’t know who their teachers will be just yet, they can’t wait to meet them and give them the goodies I picked up for each. I’m glad to have gotten a headstart on back to school shopping because it will be here in no time. 

Be sure to stop by Dollar General for all of your BTS needs!

Why Brawny Tear-A-Square® is Our Favorite Barbecue Season Essential

This post is sponsored by Brawny® but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.

It’s officially Barbecue season and I’m turning to Brawny Tear-A-Square® to take on everything from holding our favorite snacks to cleaning up the messes! The new Brawny paper towel is truly a game changer! Now it offers three different size options, so they are perfect to use on clean ups and even as a napkin.

For my family, barbecues are a big deal and they are not just a weekend thing; especially as the weather get warmer. Summer isn’t officially here yet but we have started to spend lots of time outside by the pool. In this Texas heat there’s really no better way to cool off. Since we spend so much time outside, it only makes sense to take advantage and grill our favorites. Plus, this is one of the best ways to get the hubby involved in cooking. 😉

Brawny paper towels have been our barbecue essential lately! It’s just great to have all the different sizes the new Brawny Tear-A-Square offers. And I have even noticed that since using these, my family also seems to make less waste. We have stopped using plates for certain things, like our favorite chips, candies and cookies, these all fit perfectly on the quarter sheet size. This new size also works as a napkin, so there’s no need to buy both paper towels and napkins for barbecues and gatherings.

I plan to keep Brawny Tear-A-Square in use during every event this summer, from our impromptu barbecues to gatherings with friends and family. Having a paper towel that offers strength and flexibility to only use what you need, is a must. As you get ready for all your summer gatherings, keep the new Brawny Tear-A-Square in mind. You can now find it at your local Kroger! And believe me when I say, it will become your favorite barbecue season essential!

A Special Mother’s Day Link Up

Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms who celebrate today. Truth is that being from Panama, I mainly celebrate this especial day on December 8th. But because I have been living here over 10 years, I have also embraced celebrating in May. I suppose I am lucky to be able to celebrate twice a year. 🙂

This is my 9th Mother’s Day and it’s just as special as the first. Every year on this date, I feel blessed to have been able to embark on the great adventure that motherhood has been for me. I feel so honored to be able to raise my two girls. While, it’s not always easy, it’s my favorite thing to do. I’m not the best mom in the world but to them I am and it fills my heart with joy.

Holiday Styles that Little Girls Can Wear Through Winter

Holiday Styles that Little Girls Can Wear Through Winter

Dressing the family for the holidays can be a challenge. But don’t panic, today my little one is taking over the blog to share styles that little girls can wear through winter! They are holiday styles from two of her favorite stores; Crazy 8 and Gymboree! She loves keeping it casual but will occasionally dresses up. These versatile styles can be worn over and over again!

So we love shopping at these stores, because their versatile styles allow her to show her personality through what she wears. The first look she put together without much effort; a jumpsuit which is on trend and slides which are her go to because she can quickly slide them on and go. She’s not big on accessories but she picked this necklace and has been wearing it quite a bit.

The second look is more casual, she loves her jeans! And I did help her a bit on this one. While she picked the crop sweater and jeans, I suggested she’s add some sparkle with the bronze booties. She accessorized this look with a festive bow. If you have little ones, you should check out both stores, they often have sales that make it easy to get their fun styles at a discount. 😉
