Banana dessert for Adults





Oh oh oh now doesn't this sound good?  Even if its early in the morning for you ... it still looks pretty awesome (ok I think it looks pretty awesome even if it is 9AM).

I opt for the top with Whipped Cream, but I've fallen in love with home made whipped cream using the whipping attachment for my Tupperware Power Chef.

You can check out the Power Chef with the Whipping attachment and so much more on my Tupperware Site.  Something you want?  You can always place an order on my site, or even better share my site with your friends and family and have a party ... we can do a book party, a Facebook Party or any combination there of .... and YOU can earn some hostess credits and FREE Tupperware!

Don't miss out on earning your own free Tupperware!

Do you need approval?

I'm serious, 
Do you really need approval? 

Do you need approval to be you?
Why?




All too often we seek approval from others when we don't need to.

Too often we allow others to determine what we do and why we do something.

That will never lead to true happiness.
We need to be ourselves.
We need to do those things we believe we can do it and do them well.

Just "fitting in" and accepting what someone else decides we can or can not do, will not lead to our happiness.  
And who knows, YOU could be the next Einstein, Newton, Mozart, da Vinci, Reagan, Galileo, or Franklin or ??? if you believe in what YOU can do without seeking approval.

Chill Chasing Cocktails

I know it is early (unless you are an afternoon/evening reader) but with the upcoming storm here in New Jersey, OK all of the Mid-Atlantic States, my hubby in his quest to be helpful, found these on the Bergen County Website.  Under Bars and Nightlife.  

Bergen Bartenders have "created" or "shared" some pretty nice concoctions to get through the cold.


I already like a few, may not be exactly the way they are showing it, but that just means that perhaps we need to try "another version" of a love.


This is one version of an Irish Coffee, that of course looks a little different then what I've had, but hey I'm game.







Now this one sounds great - especially since we are having the worst Flu season in years ... This is the Irish Flu Shot.  Are you getting the theme here?







I know many people have had a glass of Hot Buttered Rum, but for some reason, I am not one of them.  I guess with this site, I can now try it.





Here's another great looking drink, one that I think will be a definite try in my house, maybe not this storm (not sure if I have everything here).  The Hot Peppermint Patty!  Doesn't this look exceptional?




Here's another one that is "cold" and fits with the winter wonderland here in New Jersey.  

I give you the Frostini.

Thank you BergenCounty.com for some awesome ideas for this winter season.  Now to check my liquor cabinet and then decide if I have time to pick up what I still need to try all of these ..

Celebrate 2015 with Tupperware

Celebrate 2015 with some AWESOME Tupperware Savings!

Check out all the awesome things on my Tupperware site as well as these great sale pieces at awesome prices.


But remember these are only available on my Tupperware Site until January 30th.

I love the pieces in this one week sale ... I think the Stuffables set is a lifesaver (or should I say spacesaver) for my refrigerator!  The wonderful wonders set makes packing a lunch for work or school so much easier and the Pie Taker makes transporting a pie (home made or store bought) a breeze.  The Impressions bowl set is a classic ... and a must have, especially at this price!  Just remember you can only get 1 of each of these sets per order ... so if you want more than one .. we need to think "creatively" and do some selective ordering.


The heart keeper has no limit or purchase requirement and would be great to put in a lunch box or snack sack to show that special someone you are thinking of them.  

I think I need to pick up a few of these for all those special folks in my life.  

How about you??  
Check out these and so much more on my Tupperware Site.  You won't be disappointed.

Have you seen the #Cube?

Do you know what the #Cube is?
Have you seen the #Cube?

I was lucky enough to be able to get one of these babies to review from the manufacturers of the #Cube through the Tomoson.com program.  

I have been putting it through its paces for the last week or so and I have to say this is one of the coolest things I have used in a while.  And the #Cube really makes me want to use my Instagram account more and more.

I can see this being used for families to keep everyone "in touch" when they are farther away than next door.  

Today, pretty much everyone has access to the internet.  Many already have instagram accounts.  So put these two together with the #Cube and you have a way to keep grandparents or aunts and uncles, any family or friends who aren't close by in touch with pictures of all kinds of things.

For those of us who are trapped in the "frozen tundra" of the north, there are many things that you can use the #Cube for.  I have mine sitting in a small hutch/bookcase in the corner of my living room.  As you can see it fits nicely on the shelving under pictures of my kids some other "winter treasures".




During these cold winter days here in NJ, I can stream pictures of our Florida or Las Vegas trips where the sun and beach and water, will I hope, make the scenes outside my window here more bearable.



If you are a traveler, you can use the #Cube to remember all your stops.  


If you are a foodie, you can use the #Cube to highlight either your own creations or those you have had in your favorite restaurant.









I can see this as a way for grandmom and grandpop to see their grandchildren "grow up" before their eyes.  

Instagram and the #Cube are perfect together.



Stream your own personal Instagram account or set up an Instagram account for a specific purpose and have the #Cube keep your streams alive.




I received the #Cube from hashtagcube.com as part of the Tomoson.com program to facilitate my review.  I received no other compensation.  I will only recommend products that I believe with be of benefit of my readers.

Microbiome Plus+ Gastronintestinal PLUS Giveaway!

I was very lucky to be able to receive a one month supply of Microbiome Plus+ Gastronintestinal Probiotic for review as part of the Tomoson.com program. Although I received this product free of charge, I only recommend products that I think would be of benefit to my readers.

It has only been about a week and I really have to admit I feel better.  Its not something I can put my finger on and say "THIS" or "THIS" is better, its more of an overall feeling.  I know that isn't extremely helpful but it is the reality.

It is probably one of the best review comments a product can receive, especially if you didn't have a specific "problem" you were trying to fix.

Microbiome Plus+ Gastrointestinal Probiotic is a complete dietary supplement that provides NATURAL prebiotic fiber and a probiotic that work together to help maintain the healthy bacteria in your insides as well as support your digestive function.  It supports your gastronintestinal and immune health, normal inflammatory response, healthy bile metabolism and helps to maintain a balance of healthy bacteria.  

I know that's a mouthful (and not even half of what I could have posted about the probiotics and prebiotics) but all I can say is that there aren't a lot of ingredients that you can't say and I am definitely not a scientist.  Now these statements above  have not been evaluated by the FDA, but I don't believe any supplements are.

I know some people (my daughter for one) are not fans of taking pills/capsules and always worry about the size of same.  As you can see the capsules and tablets are not that large.   

Basically you take these twice a day (once in the morning and once at night) with a meal.  I have never been a big fan of eating a "big" breakfast unless I have been awake for a few hours .... so during the week breakfast is coffee and something "light" - even if its just some fruit as I am running out the door.  I have had no problem with taking them with breakfast.

I'm going to take these all month and see how well I feel.  One thing I have noticed (but this is not scientific by any means) is that I have had less heartburn this week.  Usually I will go from having heartburn every day (sometimes multiple times a day) to going days without any "burn".  So far this week I've been "burn free".

If you would like to order your own ... check it out on their website.  There is also a cute "video" there for you to check out.

Want to win a supply for your own test?  You can enter using the easy form below.  Good luck!
