An Amazing Litter Box


If you have cats you understand the frustration of cleaning a litter box. You have to bend over and scoop it and the smell it puts off is horrible. With my cats if I don't do it at least once a day, my lovely cat Rascal (his name totally fits him) will poop outside the litter box and has even gone in our dirty clothes basket. EWW! He is picky when it comes to how clean his litter is and I don't blame him. When in public and you go into a restroom stall hat has not been flushed do you go sit down anyway? No, you go to the next one. SO I can understand him wanting a clean place to do his business. Who doesn't?

Tropical Traditions Palm Shortnening

 
Being from the south I love fried foods which means lots of oils and grease.  I know it isn't the healthiest of food choices but I love it and I don't see anything wrong with it if it isn't an everyday thing.  I just have to tell you about this new shortening I have found that is amazing for frying.  It is called Palm Shortening and it is made by the same company that makes one of my favorite Coconut Oils.....Tropical Traditions.

Breakfast Calzone Recipe


One night I was going to make breakfast for dinner and have biscuits with it.  I then had a brilliant idea!  Why not make breakfast calzones?  And then the breakfast calzone was born.  The best part was since everyone in my house likes different things they were easy to customize.

Biscuit Recipe

I use biscuits for many different things because they are do versatile.  You can change their flavor or flatten them out and make a pizza dough.  There are countless ways to use a biscuit dough.  The recipe you will find below will make a biscuit like the ones you get from a Bisquick mix. 

Make your own Bisquick Mix

Don't buy Bisquick anymore!  I make my own baking mix and it is just as good.  If not better!  I love the versatility of biscuits so like to have a mix prepared because it cuts down on prep time for the biscuits.  With this recipe it is just like any other biscuit mix, all you have to do is add the liquid ingredients when you are ready to make some super yummy biscuits!  It is much cheaper then buying mixes from the store and doesn't contain all the preservatives.  You can even add seasonings or spices to the mix if you wish.

Waffle Recipe

The Munchkins love waffles so I make sure to always make a bunch when I make them and freeze some so we can just toss them in the toaster.  This gives them a quick, hot breakfast.  I also love to freeze pancakes.  I love that you can change up waffles by adding different ingredients to the batter.

Waffles

Makes about 12 waffles
Total Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients

2 cups Baking Mix
1 egg
1 1/3 cup milk
2 tablespoons oil (I use olive oil)

Instructions

  1. Heat your waffle iron, make sure to spray it with cooking spray to prevent sticking
  2. Whisk together milk, egg, and oil
  3. Mix baking mix into the milk mixture
  4. pour batter into the waffle iron, make sure not to fill to much of it will seep out
  5. cook until it stops steaming and is golden brown
If you would like to add mix-ins then you will want to add these between steps 2 and 3.  You can either  add them to the mix or sprinkle them on the pancake before it is flipped. 

Note:  This recipe uses my homemade baking mix.  You can find the recipe for the baking mix here.

Pancake Recipe

I am not a huge fan of pancakes.  I eat then on occasion but my Hubby and Munchkins LOVE them.  They also make super easy breakfast if you make them ahead of time and freeze them.  I try to always have some pancakes and waffles in my freezer.  I also like to add different mix-ins to my pancakes to change it up a bit so they don't get boring.  The great thing is there are so many different things that go great with pancakes that the options are endless.  I have used everything from chocolate chips to cinnamon and sugar.  And don't forget you can top them as well.

Pancakes

Makes about 12 - 14 pancakes
Total Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients

2 cups Baking Mix
2 eggs
1 cup milk

Instructions

  1. whisk milk and eggs together
  2. mix in baking mix
  3. pour a small amount on a griddle
  4. flip pancake when the edges are starting to bubble
  5. cook until cooked though
If you would like to add mix-ins then you will want to add these between steps 2 and 3.  You can either  add them to the mix or sprinkle them on the pancake before it is flipped. 

Note:  This recipe uses my homemade baking mix.  You can find the recipe for the baking mix here.

Enter to Win Toe Juice

This review/giveaway is hosted by The Momma And Boys!



Toe Juice was created by high school teacher that had an infant son that was suffering from flaky, dry, cracked feet. All the lotions that were tried on his son's feet were just to plain messy and ineffective so he decided to do some research of his own. After all his time thinking he finally came up with a revolutionary new product. Not only did Toe Juice help out his son's feet, but also over the years it helps out many friends, family, and acquaintances.

Toe Juice main ingredient is DermaVine. Which DermaVine is a blend of plant-based extracts that enhance the skin's natural repairing ability. It contains willow bark, lemon peel, and cinnamonum extracts.


I had the opportunity to review Toe Juice Signature Package and loved it. I tend to suffer from psoriasis and get dry, flaky skin all the time from it that will itch. With Toe Juice I can add it to the areas that are itching and dry to help. To apply it I would just squirt a little to a cotton ball and apply it to the area. The main thing I like about this product is that I can apply this product on my children if they are having some dry skin issues as well!

The Most Original Birds Nest

Today I was outside trimming our tree and saw an old birds nest on on of the branches.  I am sure you are thinking that it is not unusual to find a birds nest in a tree so what is the big deal and why are you writing about it?  Right? Well it isn't unusual to find a birds nest in a tree, I agree.

As I continued to trim the tree I noticed a bit of green sticking out of the nest. 

Scentsational Scrubs are Sensational


Scentsational Scrubs makes body butters and body scrubs. They even make bath crayons for the Munchkins...or you.  I can speak from experience at their body butters and body scrubs are awesome.  Their products are all handmade and the scents are amazing.  I love a great smelling product.  I am a scent sucker, especially for vanilla or lavender or the two combined.  You can even take any of their scents create your own scent!  So I was able to get lavender, vanilla AND lavender-vanilla!  When you get your scrub or body butter you can tell that's great care was taken when making them.  They are carefully packaged in a cute little bag that you can reuse for something else later.  I love stuff I can reuse.  They even come with the little sticks you use to apply it with or to just get it out of the jar!

More recipes on the blog.......

I love to cook.  Cooking helps me de-stress and unwind.  It also helps me express my creativity so of course I like to try new recipes.  I think experimenting in the kitchen is so fun and now that Munchkin 2 wants to help all the time it gives us more time together and I can teach her what I know.

I will be trying to add at least one recipe a week to the blog.  Some of these recipes may be old recipes I have used for years and others will be recipes I just developed.  I may even add new variations on recipes already posted.  I think food is the "spice of life"  (pun intended).

I know how hard it can be sometimes to think of a new recipe to try or figure out what is for dinner and want to make this process easier for you.   So lets see how it goes.

I want to spread my love of food and trying new recipes with you.  If you have a special recipe that you would like published on the blog please feel free to email me @ jennmomoftwomunchkins@yahoo.com and we can discuss getting your recipe on the blog.

Your Dog (or cat) Will Love The Postman


You hear of all kinds of mail order box nowadays, beauty, food, vitamin supplements, and many more.  So why not one for our favorite furry friends?  Pawalla has done just that.  They have created a subscription service for pets. Each month your pets will receive a box just for them filled with food, toys, treats, supplements, and so much more. 

Farm Rich Snacks


 I recently had the good fortune to review Farm Rich snacks.   I was able to review 3 different snacks of theirs;  Mozzarella Sticks, Mini Quesadillas, and Jalapeno Peppers.  I had been wanting to try the Jalapeno Peppers for a while since I have a small (HUGE) obsession with jalapeno poppers with cream cheese but was afraid I wouldn't like them because I am very picky about my poppers.  So I was very excited to finally get to try these, apprehensive, yes, but excited.

Put Your Photos on Canvas!

I have always admired photos on canvas and thought they were super neat.  I was always jealous of those who had one.  I wanted on too!  I love to take pictures of my Munchkins and sometimes it can be boring just printing photos all the time.  I wanted something different that not everyone had. 

Pawalla Giveaway Hosted by The Momma And Boys




Pawalla is a company that helps treat our fur babies.  You can sign up so once a month your cat or dog can receive their own box of goodies which include, all -natural wet foods, delicious treats, healthy supplements, and essentials and toys.    All you have to do is choose your subscription plan, fill out your pet profile, and then let your pets enjoy them when they receive them in the mail.



I think the doggies knew the box was for them.  When we received it they got so excited and started wagging their tails. 


Inside the box was 2 cans of wet dog food, petchup, dog treats, bags to pick up after your dog when you take them for a walk, and a balloon like chew toy.  I thought it was so cute that the dogs had their own little petchup to add to their food.  Both dogs loved everything they received!

Ekobrew Giveaway Hosted by The Momma And Boys

This review and giveaway is hosted by The Momma And Boys!


I have to say, I love Ekobrew!  I am always looking for way to save the environment and with ekobrew it really helps. 
With my Keurig I was always having to purchase the K-cups or the filters to fill them myself and it bothered me how much waste I was making for the environment.  Now with the Ekobrew I am able to just wash them out and refill them after every use.



As you see, the EckoBrew fits perfect into your keurig.  It is as well easy to clean too.  With the EkoBrew you will save , go green, and choose the coffee you would like to brew!
