Oven Fried Okra with Kraft Fresh Take

Fried Okra is one of my favorite treats. I never EVER eat okra any other way. EVER.

Until last week.

I just knew there had to be a healthier alternative. I mean let's face it, okra that is battered and dripping in fat isn't really the best thing for you. After checking out what Walmart had to offer, I decided on one of the new Kraft Fresh Take Meal Kits. Actually, I picked up two.
I decided to get the Italian Parmesan and also the Rosemary & Roasted Garlic Fresh Take kits. I love that these kits are very versatile and can be used to make a quick and easy dinner or used on appetizers and/or side dishes. You can find them in the cheese department. While you are in the store picking up your package of Kraft Fresh Take, be sure to check packages of chicken in the meat department for a peelie! The coupon is for $1/1 Chicken Item wyb Fresh Take! This promo also runs until the end of July!
I found the product extremely easy to use! Now that it is summer, I need as much extra time as possible! I found using the Fresh Take kit saved about 20 minutes, compared to making something similar from scratch. All you have to do is open the bag, mix the cheese with the breadcrumbs, add your meat or veggie then place on the pan. Really, it doesn't get much easier than that! I also love that this is something both of my girls could help with. They both love helping in the kitchen and shaking ingredients together in a bag is always fun!

FROZEN Hot Chocolate

I am sure by now, most of you know that FROZEN the Movie is coming to theaters THIS WEEK (the 27th to be exact)! I am so excited!! My girls saw some of the FROZEN merchandise while we were at Walt Disney World and that is all they could talk about.....for days! It has been a rough school year for both of the girls so far. Mads is adjusting to being in the upper elementary, was dealing with a bully and gets super frustrated with math (even though she is really good at it). MG is adjusting to actually being in school, went through a time of having accidents at school and she just misses her mommy. To celebrate Mads good grades and MG going a month accident free, I decided to treat the girls with a few fun new toys and some hot chocolate. Once I heard that FROZEN merchandise was available at Walmart, I ran to stock up. While I was there, it hit me! I could have #Frozenfun with the hot chocolate and make FROZEN Hot chocolate! I just knew the girls would love it! I was k

Le Cellier - Chedder Cheese Soup Recipe Review

I first talked about this soup here .   I have to admit, was not real eager to try this soup.  I can not stand the taste of beer.  PERIOD!  It doesn't take much in a recipe for me to be able to taste it.  With that being said, the soup wasn't bad.  I would try it with ginger ale next time though. Before I tell you what I thought of the soup I need to be fair and tell you about some changes I made to the recipe. First, the recipe tells you to cook the bacon just to render out the fats, not to make crispy.  I did not render out enough of the fats and in fact next time, I would cook the bacon until it IS crispy.  I don't like limp bacon, I like my bacon extra crispy. Second, I TOTALLY forgot to cook down the onions and celery before adding the flour!  Ummmm......ooops! So my bacon was limp and my veggies were crispy!  HAHA! Next, I am not on a budget to be able to purchase "Aged White Cheddar" so good ol Yellow Sharp Cheddar it was! I did NOT add one tablespoo

Strawberries and Cream Instant Oatmeal | Recipe

I don't know about you but, we go through oatmeal like that is the only thing to eat on this planet!   Seriously a TON! My youngest would eat it for every meal and snack....every day....if I let her. Yes, the little packs can be cheap (if you can find a coupon and get them on sale) but it still adds up.  I used things I already had on hand so there was no extra cost to make this.  FREE is ALWAYS good!   I tried before to make little packets to keep on hand but that was a complete fail.  I have since reworked the recipe and am happy with the results.  I decided to just keep the oatmeal in a glass container this time and scoop out what we need, when we need it.  You can also make this into packets by just scooping the desired amount into zip-top bags. {Strawberries & Cream Instant Oatmeal}   12 Servings 6 Cups Quick Cook Oats 1 1/2 Cups Oat Powder 2 Cups Powdered Milk 1 - 1 1/2 Cup Sugar 1 Cup Freeze Dried Strawberries Directions f
