Teal Pumpkin Friendly Candy that tastes Good! @YumEarth


Whose ready for HALLOWEEN CANDY!? I know I am, I mean.. my kids and his classmates are! What I enjoy the most about YumEarth is the Candy always tastes fresh, always has a delicious flavor, and it's organic, dye free, preservative free, nut free, and gluten-free. It is the ideal Teal Pumpkin Friendly Candy.  



It also tastes GOOD, I know a lot of people think "Oh it's that type of Candy?" Yeah, It's that type of Candy that is the BEST TYPE OF CANDY BEING ABLE TO TASTE THE NATURAL FLAVORS. It is also sweetened with Pure Cane Sugar.  It is my families favorite candy, and I am very happy I get to share it with my Sons Class, and Our Trick-Or-Treaters this year.  I see meme's all the time about Candy Cone, and how a lot don't like it. We love it here. I was excited to find out YumEarth has Organic Candy Corn, and it's good. It's so good, I personally don't even want to share it, but I will - because I want others to experience it's awesome-ness.
YumEarth even has Bats, and Pumpkin Shaped Fruit Snacks this year, Halloween Themed Lollipop Wrappers, and The Candy Corn.  My favorite flavors they make are Mango Tango, Pineapple, and the Banana.  



You can find YumEarth at their New Online Store, at almost every Major Retailer in Store, and Online.  Even Amazon carries them online. Go here to find out more,  https://yumearth.com/

Sharing the food I make, helps me stay on this Journey #GlutenFree #LowCarb #Keto #Lifestyle

Ive changed how I view, and consume the foods that enter my body. It's been a little over 3 weeks since I've been completely gluten free, and only carbs I mainly consume are in certain vegetables, and the occasional rice, green banana flour, and rice flour. I am down 20 Lbs, and I eat all the time. I don't count calories, I just make sure I get a healthy serving of fat, protein, and vegetables for healthier net carbs. What's helping me continue on this diet is sharing my food on Instagram, and on here. It's a motivational tool for myself. I also take B Complex, Womens Multi-Vitamins, and Cod Liver Oil, along with checking my ketones with Ketone Sticks.

I also like Salads with Feta, Olives, and Everythinggggggggg.  I do mix it up, sometimes I do Guac Salad, or Vingerette for a dressing.  Meat wise, I'd rather have shrimp, but I was craving some Bratwurst too. Since my breakfast was pretty light, I had the bratwurst to go with my Shrimp and Greens Salad.

What's for Dinner? Gluten Free Eggplant Parm Extremely Low Carb #Fried #Eggplant #PorkRind #Breading #Garlic #Powder #Salt #Pepper #Foodie #Love #GuessWhoseMakingEggplant #Parmesan




I absolutely love Pastas, and this was a great substitute for it. I breaded the eggplant with Crushed Pork Rinds ( The pork rinds have enough salt, so I didnt add any salt in with the other seasonings,) added Garlic Powder, Pepper, and Italian Seasoning to the Pork Rind Mix before dipping the Eggplant slices into Egg, and then into the Rind Mix, I did this just once, but it was easy to pack onto. Also having a pan of Olive Oil just 1/2 thick, and already warm/hot is Key to frying these up, and keeping the Mixture on for an evenly brown. I did a layer of Egg plant, a layer of ground meat, sauce, layer of eggplant, layer of black olives, and a layer of Cheese. It's one of my favorite meals.

I always post more recipes, and daily life on Instagram, Check me out there, instagram.com/greenvics

KitchenSpec Batter Cake Pen Dispenser with 2 Round Pancake/Egg Rings Review #GlutenFree #Pancakes #Spon

Oh you know, just making Pancakes, and using a cake pen Dispenser.



I actually had fun with this review. I puree'd blueberries to dye the gluten free pancake mix. I poured the regular mix in one Squeeze Container, then added the blueberries to the second to make it a 2 toned design. I also liked that each squeeze container holds 3 cups of pancake mix. The rings are 3.5" round.  This was my first time ever using anything like this, and it wasn't hard at all. I liked it. My favorite was the swirl design I did that looked like a Rose.


The two tone colors I did with the Squeeze Bottles were just enough to see the difference of Colors. I also liked how easy the Silicone Pancake ring made it for me to make the perfect little individual pancake. The left over pancake mix I put the caps back on the bottles, and put in the fridge to use tomorrow morning. I liked how easy clean up was for the Silicone Rings.


This is a sponsored post, I received products at a discounted price for my honest opinion all images are my own. You can find the KitchenSpec Batter Cake Pen Dispensers on Amazon, https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00VUCSPWC

Sriracha Almond Stuffed Peppers #Recipe @BlueDiamond #Ad

This post is sponsored by Blue Diamond Almonds. All opinions are my own.


Blue Diamond Almonds has a new Bold Sriracha Flavor! 

I like my food on the spicy side.  I am always adding Sriracha to  rice, meats, soups, seriously, almost everything.  I can't lie, I was excited to try the new Sriracha Almonds. 

The Blue Diamond Almonds, Bold Sriracha were full of flavors, savory, and spicy.  I decided to use them a few ways while making Sriracha Almond Stuffed Peppers.  


Ingredients,
Blue Diamond Almonds BOLD SRIRACHA
Hot Sausage 12 oz
3 Medium Green Peppers
Red Onion
Roasted Tomatoes
Jalapeno/Habanero Shredded  Monterey Jack Cheese
Long Rice
Salt
Pepper
Dried Garlic 
Dried Chile Peppers

First I had fun using my nutribullet to shred the Sriracha Almonds into a course powder.  It doesn't have to be perfect, I wanted some of the bigger pieces for on top the Cheese, and I wanted the smaller pieces for when I fried the Sausage/Peppers/Onions together.  



Prepped the Green peppers, cut off the tops, deseeded, and boiled my Green Peppers in water for a few minutes, just enough to cook through a little,  Drained the water, and put the peppers in a baking dish.



(put on my Long Grain rice in my rice maker,  its 3 cups of Long grain, and 6 cups of water, added dried chile peppers, dried garlic, salt, and pepper. Make the rice however you want,)  



Fried the Sausage (Drained twice. I use HOT Breakfast Sausage, and dont like a lot of grease.) I then refried the Sausage with the cut up green pepper from the top, cubed red onions, and then some of the course Blue Diamond Sriracha Almonds.  Let me tell you, it smelled amazing together.

Preheat Oven to 450

The Rice should be done now,  I then add the rice to the Almond/Sausage/Pepper/Onion Mix in the pan.  Also add a cup of Fire Roasted Tomatoes.  

Now,  you stuff the Peppers with the Rice Mix.  I also like to add some cheese in the bottom of the Green Pepper before adding the Rice Mix.  When the Pepper is packed, I put it in the Oven to bake for 10 minutes.  Then I add the Cheese on top while baking, and turn the Oven off.  It melts super fast.  



After taking the Peppers out the oven, I sprinkled some of the Blue Diamond Sriracha Almonds on top, and placed a whole almond on the cheese as a treat too.   I think there are so many ways to incorporate Blue Diamond Almonds into a meal.

BK Creamery Blueberries & Cream Waffles #Recipe #GlutenFree #sp



Recently I went to Giants for a BK Creamery In-Store Event.  I'm one of those people that also love to save money using coupons.  So I was excited to be able to use a ,60 cents off coupon towards Bk Creamery

There are a couple more events this weekend at a few Giants, and Super Shop & Stop, Check here and see if any are in your area for BK Creamery In-Store Event Testing.  I tried Strawberries, and Cream at mine.  I enjoyed just the fruit, and cream so I decided I wanted to do a simple recipe with just a fruit, and cream.  


Breakfast is my favorite part of the day.  I decided to make Blueberries over top of a Gluten Free Waffle.  Easy, delicious, and not costly.  Heres how I like to make BlueBerries & Cream Waffles.

Ingredients
Bring the blueberries to a simmer, and cook until berries break down, about 4 minutes. Let cool a little.

Whisk in a bowl some Blueberry Syrup with BK Creamerys Extra Thick Double Cream.

Toast your Gluten Free Waffle (Or make from Scratch, I just use my favorite brands premade Gluten Free Blueberry Waffles.)

My blueberries were sweet, but if yours are too bitter, try a touch of lemon to get rid of the bitterness.


I am a fan of this cream, and how well it mixes with just a whisk.  It wasn't tangy, and I was dipping blueberries in the cream to eat as a treat.

#CreamJustGotReal with @BKCreamery All Natural Extra Thick Cream #InStoreEvent #Ad



I am completely in the zone while in the kitchen. I'm not afraid to try new things, or a twist to some of my already favorite things. Ready to try something new? I know I am!


Like Thick Cream (Here is a .60 cents off Coupon for BK Creamery.) The Brooklyn Creamery has an all New, all Natural Fresh Dairy Cream similar to British Style ‘’Double Cream." The Thickness is similar to sour cream or crème fraîche but without the sour or tangy taste. It is not Ultra Pasteurized like the majority of most heavy creams. I will be attending an In-Store event at the end of the month, scroll down to find details/locations near you.

Photo Courtesy from BKCreamery.com, Check out more Delicious Recipes there.

All Ingredients are Natural: Cream, Carrageenan, Nisin. I can actually pronounce all the ingredients in the Cream. There are no Preservatives! BK Creamery is Gluten Free, Kosher, using rBST Free Milk with No Artificial Ingredients, No Added Salts/Sugars & No Carbs.


The Extra Thick Double Cream is ideal for Cooking, Spooning, and Light whipping.

  • Double Cream can be whipped to make homemade whip cream. Add any type of flavor/sweetener by mixing with cream for just a few minutes. Ex: Crushed Oreos, brown sugar cinnamon, honey, vanilla extract
  • Double Cream can be used to make a homemade spread. Whip double cream into a thick consistency (similar to butter). 
  • Leave in refrigerator overnight and enjoy a thick homemade spread. Ex: Vegetable spread, Brown sugar cinnamon spread 
  • Dollop onto fresh fruits Strawberries, peaches, blueberries 
  • Used in all types of desserts 
  • Piping, layering onto cakes 
  • Making homemade ice cream & gelato 
  • Creating delicate mousses Topping pies and other desserts


While the Extra Thick Single Cream (It's half the fat remember.) is ideal for Cooking, and Spooning.

  • Single Cream can be used to make a homemade coffee creamer – just mix with any flavoring. Ex: Vanilla extract, Peppermint oil 
  • Single Cream can make scrambled eggs creamier and thicker.

Great for Dips, Soups, Sauces, Coffee Creamer, Scrambled Eggs, Home made Whip Cream, Piping & Layering on Cakes/Deserts. Even Ice creams, and Gelatos. Or just used as a spread.

Doesn't homemade whip cream with cinnamon & sugar sound amazing? Or maybe you'd rather have shredded oreo cookies, or fresh fruits.

Since The Brooklyn Creamery are the new guys, and we need to stick together for All Natural products you can go visit  an in store sampling event at the following locations from now, til June. I will be going on May 30th, hope to see you there.

Gluten Free GEFU Healthy-N-Lean Review & Tryazon Party! #WheatBelly #GEFU #TRYAZON #Spon #RiceNoodles #Veggies #SalmonMiniCake #Recipes


Disclaimer: This is a sponsored post through Tryazon to throw a party using GEFU.  All opinions are my guests, and my own!

(Rice Noodles, Carrots, Celery, Lime Juice.)

Recently I had the opportunity to invite a handful of friends to try out GEFU cooking utensils (www.GEFU.com.)  I loved the Julienne Peelers, Spiral Slicer and Lemon Juicer.  My absolute Favorite Julienne Peeler was the smaller handheld one.


For the main course, I used the Gefu Julienne Peeler on Carrots, Celery, and made Rice Noodles.  Also squeezed Lime over top with the Juicer.  Everything was extremely easy to use.  


It was also fun for the guests to use the Juicer themselves on their plates.  They had never seen anything like it before.

(Cabbage, Cucumber, Red Onions, Mango Rice Vinegar, Salt & Pepper for a Side Slaw Salad to go with the Rice Noodles, and Mini Salmon Patties.)


Everything Used,

GEFU, Spiral Slicer, #13460 (Does 2 Julienne Sizes.)

GEFU, Lemon Juicer, #12485 (Can also do Limes, and Oranges.)

GEFU, Julienne Peeler, #13660 (This one was my Absolute Favorite.)

GEFU, Julienne Slicer, #50410 (Guests Favorite.)



Check out GEFU by going here, www.GEFU.com,


Also made Mini Salmon Patties in Cotton Seed Oil for the Guests.  The Salmon Patties are just Pink Salmon, Egg, Salt, Pepper, and Srircha Sauce fried in the Cotton Seed Oil.



Have fun with it! We all thought these GEFU utensils were amazingly fun, and easy to use. Thank you so much Tryazon, and GEFU for the Party Fun.

Gluten Free Chocolate Covered Cherries and White Chocolate Coconut Square Bites #Recipe using Clif Bars! #gfWalmart #GF #Spon


Disclaimer: I received compensation through Sverve to facilitate a review/recipe.  All opinions, and images are my own.


My family already enjoys Clif Bars, so when I was asked to create a recipe using the Gluten Free Clif bar I was super excited.  Walmart always has a huge variety of Clif bars.  Also they are pretty low cost,  considering they are Gluten Free, up to 9grams+ Protein, and Vitamins for under $1.50 a bar. You'd be surprised at all the Gluten Free Products at Walmart.


I may be addicted to a certain Kitchen Show that you take an already made ingredient, and use it in your recipes.  This is a very easy recipe that I even had my family help turn the  Clif Bars into the chocolate candy bites.


This is how to make Gluten Free Chocolate Covered Cherries, and White Chocolate Coconut Squares using Clif Bars.



Ingredients Needed,
  • Wax Paper
  • Double Boiler (Or use Microwave on 50% Power.)



Cut the Mojo Bar into desired squares. I made my squares a little smaller and wanted to do 10 White Chocolate squares.

Melt the White Chocolate Chips. I used a double boiler, if you dont have one just use the microwave on 50% power for 30 seconds (Don't forget to adjust the Power down or it will burn the chocolate!)




I like the White chocolate to be moldable and not completely melted, and mold it flat on the wax paper. Take a Clif bar square fast, and wrap into the white chocolate like you are making a square present.

Roll the White Chocolate Coated Square into the coconut flakes onto all 4 sides.




Cut the Luna Bar into 4 squares, and then flatten the squares a little thin.

Place a Cherry in the middle of the flattened Luna Bar. Roll into a ball, with the cherry in the middle.

Place on a plate with wax paper.

Melt the Milk Chocolate Chips.



Spoon Chocolate on to the Luna Bar Circles. Repeat until you have your desired thickness of chocolate. I did a few that you could still see an open side of the Chocolate Covered Cherry like it was a mini bowl too.

Go back to the White Chocolate Squares, and pour a little Milk Chocolate if you'd like, and place an Almond on top before it cools.

Refrigerate to help harden the chocolate up, if you want it soft, it's still good!


I already want to make more! I only used 2 Clif Bars, and still have a jar of Cherries ( I love baking these cherries into treats too,) and a lot of chocolate chips left from the Bags I bought. This is a fun no bake alternative. If you want to find more gluten free recipes check out Walmarts Gluten Free in-store event on January 24. I will be going to my Local Participating Store!
