New Treats On The Block! Weight Watchers Sweet Baked Goods Party!

Sunday, May 31, 2015
Heather

I participated in a In-Home Party Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Weight Watchers Sweet Baked Goods. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

As you all know I am determined to lose weight and get fit again, so I have been looking for some better alternatives to my usual snacking vices. I have found that in the past when I try to completely cut out snacks or treats of any kind I only end up failing and overeating. That’s why I was super excited to see Weight Watchers new line of snacks. Now I know what you are thinking “Weight Watchers, really?” Yes! Weight Watchers! In all honesty I was skeptical at first and was expecting something that tasted like a weight loss product, and to my surprise it was one of the best little snacks I have had in a long time.

Summer Cooking With Guy Fieri Sausage! #CookingWithGuyFieri

“I participated in a Influencer Activation for Guy Fieri Sausage. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.”

With summertime right around the corner I find myself looking for any way out of having to make my kitchen hotter than it already is. When I want full bellies, great food and less heat inside the house I turn on the grill! I’d be lying though if I said I only grill because of the heat… the truth is I don’t need an excuse to grill. I am that crazy neighbor out using her grill when it’s 20 degrees outside, desperately praying that the propane tank hasn’t frozen up.

Nothing makes me more excited for summer than firing up the grill. A huge grill favorite around our house is burgers and brats; as soon as they start sizzling mouths start watering. Unfortunately if you lean on the grill to bring all the flavor you will end up with some pretty bland sausage. You need sausage that bring home spectacular flavors, and Guy Fieri has some that will definitely turn up the heat for your next meal. With flavor packed combos like Fajita Seasoned Chicken Sausages and Mozzarella and Parmesan Cheese Pork Sausages you can’t go wrong.

Having a BBQ? Toss these on babies on the grill and wow friends and family. In our house buns are for burgers, but sausages were meant for something better especially these beauties! One of my favorite dishes is this Grilled Summer Sausage casserole. You can heat this up really quick in the oven, a skillet or on the grill. 

Grilled Summer Sausage casserole:

One package of Guy Fieri Italian sausage 

1 tablespoon butter or olive oil

½ cup medium onion, diced

4 asparagus stalks

1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes

1/2 teaspoon ground pepper

1 teaspoon Oregano

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 tsp garlic

1 zucchini, cut in half lengthwise and then into pieces

1 yellow squash, cut in half lengthwise and then into pieces

1 red, yellow or green pepper cut into strips

Instructions - 

Grill:

If grilling put all ingredients minus your sausage into a foil package and grill for about 20 minutes. Grill your sausage separately to the directions on the package and dice up and mix in with the rest of the ingredients when done grilling and serve. 

Stovetop:

Dice up the sausage sauté in a large frying pan with onions and butter, toss all other ingredients in and cook over medium heat for 20 minutes. 

Oven:

Toss all ingredients in a casserole dish mix together and cover with aluminum foil. Bake for 35 minutes on 350.  

You see that?! That's yummy goodness oozing out. YUMMY! I promise this will be a huge crowd pleaser recipe and guests will be begging for seconds. 

If you are planning a BBQ or just need some kitchen relief be sure to head over to Walmart and grab some Guy Fieri sausage for a quick, easy, and flavorful meal. 

Each package of Guy Fieri Sausage comes with 4 links, each 3 oz. in weight!

Healthy Family Traditions with DOLE Red Grapefruit Sunrise Fruit Bowls!

Thursday, February 19, 2015
Heather


I have been compensated by DOLE for my participation in this campaign as a part of the Mom It Forward Blogger Network. As always though all my crazy opinions and stories are my own.

One of my earliest memories of my grandfather is sitting down with him and enjoying one of his favorite things… grapefruit. We would wake up super early, sit down at the kitchen table, he would get half and I would get the other half. He would put salt on his half and sprinkle sugar on mine. We would then talk about our plans for the day or try to guess how long Grandma would end up sleeping in.

A beautiful city right on the water, bustling with locals and travelers. Part city, part seaside town. A great mixture of everything you would want on a trip to New England.

About Mamas Spot

We are a family of four that left it all behind to go travel the world. No, literally we left it all. We sold all of our possessions, packed what we could into four suitcases and said goodbye to suburban life. All we own is now pulled behind us as we travel to new and exciting destinations. Showing our kids the world and teaching them about new cultures, food, and ways of life is now our 9-5.

We love watching our kids learn, and learning along side them. Together we have now explored many new countries, visited family on the other side of the world, and made memories that will last a lifetime.

Welcome to our journey!
