Mexican Fried Ice Cream Dessert

I always try and make my desserts from items I have on hand.  This Mexican Fried Ice Cream Dessert ius simple to make and very pleasing to the palate.  During these scorching hot summer days, this is my go-to dessert! 


Items needed:

5 cups Plain Corn Flakes (crushed)
1/4 cup Granulated Sugar
1 stick Unsalted Butter (1/2 cup) (cubed)
1 (1.75-quart) container Vanilla Ice Cream
1 (16-ounce) container frozen Whipped Topping (thawed & divided)
3/4 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
1/4 cup Honey
Chocolate Syrup
Maraschino Cherries

Set out a 9x13 inch casserole dish. Let ice cream sit at room temperature for around 35 minutes. While the ice cream is thawing, place the corn flakes into a large container, then crush and set aside. In a large heavy pot and over medium heat, add the butter. Once melted, add corn flakes and sugar. Cook while stirring for around 5 minutes (it may take less time, watch corn flakes to make sure they don’t overcook). Place cornflakes to the side to cool slightly. In a large mixing bowl, combine the vanilla ice cream, half of the container of whipped topping and ground cinnamon. Stir until completely combined. Place the remaining whipped topping back in the fridge for later use. Spread a 1/3 of the cooked corn flakes on the bottom of the casserole dish. Drop large dollops of the ice cream mixture over the corn flakes, then spread evenly. Sprinkle the top with the remaining corn flakes. Drizzle the honey over the corn flakes. Cover with foil, then place in the freezer for 6 to 8 hours. Remove and cut into squares. Top each square with chocolate syrup, a dollop of the additional whipped topping and a cherry, then serve.

30 Minute Creamy Chicken Enchiladas

I cook a lot of things using chicken stock, which I make myself using chicken leg thigh quarters or whole chickens that I've quartered. Over the years, I've picked up or developed a lot of recipes that make use of the chicken leftover from this process.





Since the chicken is already cooked, it lends itself very well to meals that can be made in time constrained situations. I freeze it in recipe size batches so that I can grab one and thaw it easily. Even If I forget to put it out of the freezer in the morning, it can be thawed out in a matter of minutes in the microwave. This has saved me on more than one occasion when a half day outing lasted way longer than it was supposed to and we don't make it home until dinnertime. Being able to put a home-cooked meal on the table in less time than it would take to order a pizza is priceless.


This is one of my families favorite "leftover" chicken recipes. It can be done with just about any kind of leftover chicken, or you can cook some specifically to make the recipe. I have to make double the recipe because my husband would probably cry if there were no enchiladas for a snack, and my 6-year-old would do the same if there were none for lunch the next day.


Ingredients:

1 pound cooked chicken, diced
1 package cream cheese, cubed
1 can chopped green chiles
1 package 6-inch tortillas, flour or corn your preference
1 can green chile enchilada sauce
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 cup shredded fiesta cheese blend or cheddar, your preference

Preparation:

Heat oven to  400°F. Prepare a 13X9-inch baking dish.

In a bowl, combine enchilada sauce with cream of chicken soup. Spread a thin layer of the mixture in the bottom of the prepared baking dish.

In a large skillet heat chicken, chiles, and cream cheese on medium heat until heated through and the cream cheese is fully melted.

Spoon mixture into tortillas, roll and place seam-side down into the prepared baking dish. Pour remaining sauce over top, and sprinkle with shredded cheese. Bake for 20 minutes or until hot and cheese is melted.

June 2016 ipsy Glam Bag Review


It's that time of the month again, ipsy Glam Bag time!


For any new readers or those unaware, the ipsy Glam Bag is a monthly beauty subscription service. You pay $10 a month, or $110 a year (basically you get one bag free for paying up front for a year) and once a month a package comes straight to your mailbox that contains a cute little makeup bag and five full size, or deluxe size sample beauty products. It's a great way to try out new products and build your makeup collection for a cheap price.

ipsy has a survey on their site where you can tailor your box to your likes and wants. Every month they have around 35 to 40 different items that go into the bags, and the survey helps them to customize the five items in your bag to suit you. You can further customize your future bags by reviewing your bag items on the ipsy website. While the bag might be the same for everyone, the contents are different.

The theme for the June 2016 Glam Bag, is ''Rebel Rebel''.


This month's bag is really cute. It has a graffiti style design and says ''ipsy'' and ''makeup'' on it numerous times. I don't particularly need another makeup bag at the moment, so I'll be passing this on to someone who can use it.

On to the contents!

 Colorpop Cosmetics Creme Gel Liner in the color Swerve - Full Size- $5.00

This is a great little eyeliner. It goes on super smooth and creamy and dries down to a gorgeous, deep, matte black. When you first put it on it is very blendable, but once it sets it is smudge proof. I really like this for my waterline and tightline because it has zero transfer. The point is small enough that it makes a nice thin line, and makes a pretty decent wing. This eyeliner is a fantastic value for the money. It performs like a high end, higher priced eyeliner.


Japonesque Solid Brush Cleanser- Sample Size- $3.50

This was my first experience with a solid brush cleaner. It's super easy to use. You wet the brush, then swirl it over the surface of the balm to remove impurities, then you rinse the brush under running water and wipe the balm surface to refresh. It's quick, it's easy, and it's effective. My favorite thing about it is the packaging. It's perfect for travel.


Dirty Little Secret Cosmetics Illuminating Baked Highlighter in the color Bellisima- Full Size- $9.00 

Highlighter! I get excited even thinking about highlighters. Getting one in my ipsy bag, makes me all kinds of happy. I'm still not sure how I feel about the color of this, but the texture is really good, and it sits really nicely on the skin. It has a really nice pearly finish. I'm super pale, ridiculously pale, so colored highlighters just don't look good on me. This would look stunning on darker skin tones.


BioRepublic Skin Care Fiber Masks in Cucumber Breeze and Pomegranate Crush- Full Size- $10.00

There are two of these, so it's kind of like getting an extra product in my bag. These are sheet masks, which I am not a huge fan of. To me, a sheet mask is basically a serum presented in the worst possible delivery method. I get that it's supposed to be luxurious. You are supposed to apply it then sit back and relax and have a little you time for 15-20 minutes. These masks recommend use 3 or 4 times a week. I just don't have that kind of spare time...

I have only tried the Cucumber Breeze mask so far. From the website, it's described as:
An ultra-soothing facial mask infused with natural cucumber extract, plant collagen, and vitamin e:
  • Soothes stressed skin and improves complexion.
  • Tightens pores and reduces appearance of fine lines.
  • For calm, rejuvinated, fresh, clean skin.
I didn't see any difference in my skin from a single use. Since they recomend multiple treetments per week, I am assuming it takes a few applications to see any real results. After removing the mask you are supposed to tap the remaining serum into your skin, which left my face sticky. I figured that would go away as it absorbed, but 2 hours later my skin was still sticky to the touch. My cat also will not stop sniffing my face! She's like obsessed with the scent. It does have a nice scent, so I can't really blame her.

I really think this is one of those products that a single use isn't enough to get a feel for the items performance. I don't this kind of item is a good fit for the Glam bag because of that. I just didn't get enough of an expreience with how it performs to even consider buying it, since the experience that I did have wasn't that great. The stickiness and horrible delivery method aren't enough to turn me off if the product worked really well, but a single mask of each type isn't going to deliver the results to prove to me it's a worthwhile product.


theBalm Cosmetics Meet Matt(e) Trimony Eyeshadow in the color  Matt Kumar- Full Size- $5.50

This eyeshadow is described as being a "matte cranberry", but I think it's more of a rust than cranberry. I really like the color. The formula is really creamy and blends really well. You definitely need a primer with this, or it will be worn off in a few hours. It has no staying power without some help. Also, there was more fallout than I have ever seen. I'll definitely be using it wet to keep it from ruining all my other makeup when I'm applying it. The performance is definitely on par with the price tag. The color and texture are really nice, but it wears too fast and the fallout is a bit insane. With a little work it is a nice eyeshadow.

This month's bag only has a $33 value, but it's almost all full sized products which is always nice. It's also kind of 6 products instead of just 5 because of there being two different BioRepublic masks. In all, I'm pretty happy with this bag. The masks were a miss for me, but I'm pretty happy with everything else. I'm much happier this month than I was last month. I definitely got my $10 worth this month.

How kids can enjoy outdoor play and nature

This post is sponsored by the Voice of Play.

With summertime upon us, it is time to get out of the house and PLAY!  Take the kids to the park, to a river, or to a hiking trail.  Let them see and experience nature while they play.


This is  great for kids and adults, alike  Not only is is good for your physically, it is also good for you mentally.  And, the best part about outdoor play with nature,  it is FREE.

I know my State Park, Magnolia Springs, waives the park fee on Wednesdays.  Many parks across the nation offer a similar discount  You can experience nature on a hiking or walking trail and get in some good play time with the entire family.  



I grew up fishing the Ogeechee River with my grandfather  We are passing that tradition down to our kids by taking them fishing at some of the very same spots my grandfather took me.  This is a fun time to play and enjoy nature  Watch out, you just might catch enough for supper.

There are so many things that you can incorporate nature while you play  We have been birdwatching right here in our own yard.  The kids love seeing all of the birds.  They are learning while they enjoy outdoor play.

We all need to get OFF of our phones and get our minds and bodies in tune with nature.  So, when you are done reading this, turn off your phones, take your kids outside and let them experience nature by going on a walk, a hike, or birdwatching.  The possibilities are endless.  You can see the beauty in nature and play with your kids.  I cannot think of a more enjoyable experience and one that will create memories you and your kids will cherish.

Summer Fun Giveaway

Check out all these fun prizes!  I am so happy to be a part of this GIANT giveaway!

 It's summertime! We want to make sure you get outside and have some fun. We also want to make sure you and your little ones are protected from the sun's rays, so we've teamed up with Little Leaves Clothing Company and Step2 for this amazing prize package! Little Leaves Clothing Company was founded by parents and doctors, pediatrician Dr. Carley Gomez-Meade and dermatologist Dr. Carlos Gomez-Meade, who searched for fashionable and affordable clothing, only to discover that sun protective clothing was mostly just offered for swimwear. We get a lot more sunshine beyond the swimming pool, so they founded Little Leaves Clothing Company. Little Leaves Clothing Company clothes are made from a bamboo fiber blend. Bamboo is an extremely soft fabric that is preferred for sensitive or eczema-prone skin. It is naturally hypoallergenic, absorbent (moisture wicking), odor resistant, antibacterial, and antifungal. It is ultra-light weight, making it perfect for everyday wear, and is more breathable than 100% cotton. The fabric is free of chemicals, offers ultraviolet protection (UPF) of 50+, and blocks 98% of the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays, and they use all natural, non-irritating dyes. Finally, there is toxin-free, environmentally friendly, fashionable, affordable, sun protective clothing!




 Janessa from Thrifty Nifty Mommy recently had the opportunity to review shirts from Little Leaves Clothing Company with her children. Make sure you read her full review here. Little Leaves Clothing Company has kindly offered to give one lucky reader a $100 gift certificate towards clothing from their shop! They offer both shirts and pants for children and shirts for adults as well. Now that you're little ones are dressed for the sun, how about 2 fun items to play with?! Step2 has offered up their brand new Crabbie Sand Table to the winner of this giveaway. Enjoy all the fun of outdoor play with this Step2 Sand Table! Their friendly crab is all grown up and has new legs, which allow kids to take their sand play to a whole new level. Kiddos can use the shovels and buckets to build their very own sand castle. This children’s sand table includes a shell style lid to keep sand clean and dry.

 The winner of this giveaway will also receive the Intex Fantasy Castle Inflatable Play Castle. Kids are sure to have endless hours of fun pretending to be the king or queen of the Intex Fantasy Castle Play Center. Plugging a garden hose into the Dragon Bop Bag sprayer will send water cascading across the pool! A soft slide with a landing pad allows you to slide and splash into the wading pool. An inflatable lance & shield are included for lots of imaginative play in the castle. A drain plug is included for convenience.
