Ideas To Reignite Relationships

Ideas To Reignite Relationships

Today’s post is sponsored by Fiera, but my love for their product is all my own!

Have you reached that stale point in a relationship? You know the point I am referring to- where it becomes comfortable, predictable and a bit... shall I say, boring? It doesn't mean the love is gone, it just means the spark has dwindled down to embers.   Regardless of how long you have been together, it's fun to just shake things up a bit and reignite those embers and get the sparks flying again.

Turkey Bacon Burgers + The Biggest Loser

Turkey Bacon Burgers + The Biggest Loser

Can you believe the Biggest Loser is now on its 17th season? Crazy, right? I've always been a Team Bob fan and like to see that he is now the host of The Biggest Loser.   A former coworker of mine was on Season Seven.  It was exciting to SEE somebody I know on the show and not only ON the show but since then.  My former coworker has maintained his healthy lifestyle and passion for fitness since his appearance.  

Review: Influencer Marketing For Dummies + Giveaway **CLOSED** WINNER NOTIFIED

In 2007, I ventured into the world of blogging.  I just wanted to write about the journey of raising a child with a traumatic brain injury and the whirlwind that happens after learning your child was abused.  Since 2007, my blog has morphed into different identities as I tried to figure out who I am as a blogger. 

Enter 2016, I have more focus with the path I want my blogging career to travel on but I have struggled with marketing my blog.  So, when I was offered the chance to read and review "Influencer Marketing for Dummies"- I totally jumped at the chance.  I am in the process of rebranding and moving my content into different blogs (moving food to one, parenting to another, etc.) and I really want 2016 to be when I really become hyper focused and successful with these ventures.

Slow Cooker Recipe: Honey Garlic Habanero Meatballs

I hope you like spicy food because these meatballs are on FIRE.  Whoooo.   The sauce is a mix of El Yucateco habanero sauce, honey, garlic and a few other ingredients.  It's literally a sauce made in sweet and spicy heaven.  

Slow Cooker Recipe: Honey Garlic Habanero Meatballs

Before I go into the recipe, funny story about habaneros.  Over 20 years ago, my mother was shopping at the grocery store and saw these beautiful orange peppers.  She didn't realize that they were habaneros, a super hot pepper, and bought them thinking they were sweet peppers.  She came home, threw about 10 of them into a pot of chili and let's just say... it was FIRE chili.  Haha.  It's a memory of my mom that makes me smile.  My brothers and dad were in heaven with the chili.

These ribs have been slow cooked in Pepsi and glazed with BBQ sauce LITERALLY fall off the bone and taste incredible.  
Crockpot Pepsi Ribs.  These literally fall RIGHT off the bone.

Are you ready for the Big Game? How is your team doing so far this season? I will keep silent about MY team because... *clears throat* moving on.  

Let's talk about dem ribs, tho.  I love, love, love ribs.  Especially when they are slathered in BBQ sauce.  There's nothing like having the meat falling off the bones, fingers and face covered in bbq sauce.

These ribs are scary good.  For TWO reasons.  First, they're cooked in Pepsi.  YES.  PEPSI.

Starting 2016 with Healthy Habits

Raise your hand if you are determined to have healthier habits in 2016

*raises hand*

I was pretty excited when I received the BabbleBoxx because it was bursting with products I already buy or I would buy.  The box's focus is on wellness and it couldn't have arrived at a better time with me ringing in 2016 with a gnarly flu bug. 


Dunkin' Donuts Chicken Apple Sausage Breakfast Sandwich (+Giveaway)

Dunkin' Donuts Chicken Apple Sausage Breakfast Sandwich (+Giveaway)

I am a Dunkin' Donuts junkie.  I absolutely LOVE the DD Perks app.  You just load it with money, show it to the cashier, they scan it and then your order is paid.  I love how easy it is to accrue points that turn into free drinks.  I love for their iced coffees and their hash browns.  

Now, I have a new breakfast sandwich obsession: The Chicken Apple Sausage Breakfast Sandwich.  

Yoooooooooo.  It's so good.  I am a sucker for chicken apple sausage ANYWAYS and I knew this would be the best sandwich EVER.  It was.  

Recipe: Apple Butter Cake

This apple butter cake is the perfect cake that makes you yearn for fall. 

Recipe: Apple Butter Cake

Apple Butter is my favorite preserve.  I can spread it on EVERYTHING or eat it by the spoonful.  I keep telling myself that I am going to learn to make it.  It can't be hard.  As a matter of fact, learning to can is on my list of goals for 2016 (my post on THOSE goals will be up soon). 

So it only makes sense for it to be in a cake.  Don't you agree?   This apple butter cake makes all the boys come to the yard.  Wait.  Wrong dessert but maybe, all the boys MIGHT come tot he yard once they get a whiff of this apple butter cake!
