Jennie-O Has Easter Covered, With Turkey!

Disclaimer: I was provided with products in return for my views, your views may differ from mine, thank you!

Spring has sprung as Easter comes early this year, so why not let Jennie-O entertain your guests for you with some delicious Easter recipes your guests won't want to miss!

For just a few bucks you can pick up lean turkey meat, bacon, links or sausages, plus even a giant turkey ready for the oven!

Jennie-O makes it easy to follow a plan for recipes and allows you to get creative and overhaul an old recipe and substitute for turkey, even starting with breakfast!

You can make a simple pancake breakfast with turkey sausage links as I did, or you can get fancy and follow the  recipe from Jennie-O's website for Birds Nest Breakfast Cups, which look fabulous and are one of my favorites to impress guests!

How about whipping out a Jemnie-O oven ready turkey for the main meal, too? I am not a fan of really salty ham and my husband doesn't eat it at all, so turkey is a great substitute.

You can even add some Candied Turkey Bacon, too! Jennie-O has thought of everything! 

You don't have to do things traditionally, this Easter, and you don't have to go it alone, either. Check out the Jennie-O website for even more great ideas to wow your guests with turkey as you make the switch this year!

I would love to know if you try any of these, and if Jennie-O helps you this Easter! 

Keep up to date with Jennie-O on Facebook and Twitter, too, to stay in the know!

Happy Easter!

Put Softsoap Foaming Hand Soap in Your Gift Baskets this Easter!

Disclaimer: I was provided with products from Colgate-Palmolive in exchange for my honest opinions; your views may differ to mine, thank you!

Every year, we fill up a gift basket for the kids with various candy, for Easter and this year is no exception!

The kids get sticky and they have a good time with it - they also run around the yard getting dirty during Easter egg hunts, blasts and dashes!

That is why, this year I am including these fun Softsoap bottles of foaming hand soaps in Frozen and Star Wars designs, along with any goodies in their baskets!

I love how Softsoap smells and it is easy for all to dispense -even for the little ones. What better way to keep them clean and not sticky through the adventures of the day?

We all love the designs on the bottles and there is  something for everyone from Elsa to R2D2! My step son and my son both like Star Wars and my younger two love Frozen, so everyone is encouraged to wash up fresh and clean with their favorite characters!

You can currently find: Elsa, Elsa and Anna, Olaf, Darth Vader, R2D2 and Yoda!

You can check out the full range of designs in stores, now, and pop some in your baskets to keep those sticky mitts clean with characters the kids adore!

You can find Softsoap on Facebook, too, if you'd like to stay in the know!

1byOne 9000mAh 12V Multi-Function Smart Portable Car Jump Starter Powerbank!!

Disclaimer: I was provided with product in order to give my honest opinions. Your views may differ from mine, thank you!

The 1byone 9000mAh 12V Multi-Function Smart Portable Car Jump Starter Powerbank for Smartphones & Digital Devices

If you are anything like me, you will like to be prepared for various situations, including a break-down on the way to or from work, or being able to stop and help someone else who might be in trouble at the side of the road.

Well, this small box of magic is something I didn't even know I needed until I had it and now I wouldn't let it go!

This small little battery pack jump starts your car multiple times, which gives you a head start to getting back on the road without having to flag anyone else down or getting into a tizzy on the side of the road!

This compact little black box fits snugly anywhere in your car for easy access and not only can it jump your car, it can recharge your cellphone, too, which is even better in an emergency situation when your battery fails and you're unable to restart your car at all. 

I feel so much happier knowing that this gem is sitting in the back of our car, when my husband heads off to work, because there have been times when not only did he need help starting our old car, but times when he had stopped and actually gone and purchased jumper cables to help start someone else's car, too!

Now we are prepared in the eventuality that our car decides not to play ball and if we see someone who might need a hand. It charges quickly and requires very little down time. It takes second to check and is quick to run, well worth the money and allows for a little more peace of mind on a daily commute.

You can check these out on Amazon, via 1byOne, here!

10/10, and well worth the investment!

Giveaway!! PEEPS and Company for ALL Your Easter Needs! #peepseaster

Disclaimer: The PEEPS & COMPANY® products, information, and additional gift pack have been provided by PEEPS & COMPANY®.

Every year, when Easter rolls around, my children ask specifically for one thing... PEEPS!

This year, PEEPS are headlining our Easter basket with just about as many different flavors that you can imagine, and then some extras we definitely know the children are going to enjoy!

I picked up a couple of very cute baskets for just under $1.00 each at the thrift shop and filled them to the top with as many PEEPS as I could, without going crazy!

I added PEEPS ear buds and plush toy, plus Mike & Ike Jelly Beans, Mike & Ike Easter treats and Hot Tamales, too, which we were sent with our gigantic package of PEEPS goodies!

We dug into the birthday cake PEEPS already, those didn't even make it into the final basket, and the brown sugar chocolate covered PEEPS weren't far behind! I have hidden the rest away, including PEEPS bunnies and regular PEEPS treats and decorated eggs!

We have started our traditional Easter crafts in the way of bunnies and will draw up some PEEPS soon, too! My children don't endulge too much regularly and so if they want PEEPS for Easter, then who am I to argue!

There are sticky, sweet, gooey, delicious PEEPS for everyone now and I'd love to know your favorite!!

Here is a super 20% off code for your next online PEEPS purchase, too! No minimum required, from February 15 through April 15, 2016. Use code: EASTERTREATS

BUT WAIT! There is more! The good people that brought us PEEPS, really want to bring YOU a goodie bag of PEEPS and friends, too!

ONE winner will win a PEEPS and friends surprise gift pack of sweet delights similar to the products shown in this post! (The prize does not include ear buds, plush or any other item that is not candy and is subject to change based on availability at the time of prize fulfillment!)
