Let Your Star Shine With Honey Bunches Of Oats! #HBOestodo @HBOatsLatino #Ad

*This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with Honey Bunches of Oats and WeAllGrow Latina. All opinions are 100% my own.     Ever since I started dating my husband, he has loved Honey Bunches of Oats.  As a matter of fact, not only is it his favorite cereal, but he doesn't want to share it with anyone else in the house.  Unfortunately for him, our boys love it too so they are constantly trying to come up with sneaky ways to slip the box past him when they eat it in the morning.  When I heard that Honey Bunches of Oats created a microsite to recognize their fans and give them the opportunity to star in their own ad, I knew my guys were perfect for it!     If you have never tasted Honey Bunches of Oats, you have no idea the deliciousness that you are missing out on. Imagine tantalizing your palate with a multitude of flavors and textures that include crispy flakes and mouthwatering clusters of crunchy oats that are sprinkled with the sweet … [Read more...]

While I was compensated to write a post about Jimmy Dean Delights, all opinions are my own.     Mornings in our house can be somewhat of a blur.  Between getting myself ready for work and chasing after my boys to make sure they get ready in time for school, we barely make it out of the house in time.  Although I want my family to have a good breakfast, it just isn't possible for me to spend a lot of time preparing it every morning.       Jimmy Dean Delights are made with real ingredients like whole eggs, lean meat and real vegetables, providing families with a delicious, wholesome breakfast option to start the day off right.  They allow me to feel good about feeding my family on weekday mornings.  My boys'  personal favorite is Jimmy Dean Delights Turkey Sausage, Egg White & Cheese Croissant because it is made … [Read more...]

Smoked Salmon Cucumber Breakfast Toast Recipe

    As I'm getting older, I'm changing many of my eating habits and going back to my culinary roots in a small fishing town in Spain.  I can still recall waiting for my grandfather to return from fishing all morning with a fresh catch that my grandmother would prepare for the family to enjoy.  There is just something about the taste of fresh fish and seafood that teases the palate.  Not to mention that eating fish is healthier for us and our overall wellness.     I've always been a huge fan of smoked salmon because its taste has always appealed to me.  Unfortunately, as a Working Mom, I don't always have a lot of time to plan or prepare elaborate recipes so I'm constantly on the lookout of easy recipes that I can prepare and enjoy in a flash.  Imagine my surprise when I realized that I could enjoy Smoked Salmon and cucumber on toast as a breakfast treat.  This is a great way to start your day full of protein and wholesome goodness.  Wait until you see how easy it is to make … [Read more...]

What Are Some Fun Summer Activities To Keep Kids Engaged? #PCBigDay #Ad

*This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Kellogg's Frosted Mini Wheats.  All opinions are 100% mine.     The Summer can be a great time to spend some quality time with your family and to enjoy some fun outdoor activities with your children.  It is important to keep kids engaged during their vacation from school so that they can be productive during their time off.  There are many exciting activities that you can do with your kids that can help them to nurture and foster their interests and to teach them how to set and accomplish personal goals.     Personally, we love to get outside during the warm weather and have some fun together riding our bikes.  It allows all of us to enjoy some fresh air while getting some great exercise.  We also take the time to enjoy the scenery and nature around our neighborhood while we ride together and laugh and talk together.  I can't think of a better outdoor activity to get our boys up and about during the Summer.     Since we have … [Read more...]

    Those of you who are price and value conscious Club members already know that buying Cheerios® cereal at your local Costco, Sam's Club, or BJ's is already a great deal.     You can already buy Cheerios® at a great price at these Clubs but they've just made it much easier to get the most out of your shopping budget with the new 2 box Cheerios® packaging format.  It contains two individual boxes that are much easier to pour and easier to pour too.     Let's not forget that, by reducing the amount of air in each individual bag, these improved containers also fit 10% more cereal than before and are friendlier for the environment because they use less packaging.     Even though each box contains more cereal, the packaging material has been reduced by over 200,000 lbs, thereby saving 1,000 trees from destruction.  It also helps to keep 130 Cheerios® trucks off the road which decreases CO2 emissions.     I actually eat a cup of Cheerios every morning as part of my breakfast routine. … [Read more...]

Honey Bunches of Oats-New Fruit Blend Flavors

    We are huge fans of Honey Bunches of Oats Cereal in my house.  To be quite honest, I rarely get to eat any of it when we bring it home from the grocery store because the boys and my husband gobble it up right away.  It was definitely cause for celebration when we received the opportunity to review their new Fruit Blend Flavors.     The two Fruit Blends that we received were Peach and Raspberry along with Banana and Blueberry.  I knew right away that my husband and my older son would naturally gravitate towards the Banana and Blueberry Blend because they are not big fans of Peach.     Of course, I was absolutely right and I didn't even get to try that flavor because they polished off that box before I even got around to tasting it. According to them it was delicious and they want to know when I'm buying it again.     Now, my younger son and I love Peach and Raspberry so we sat down together to try this Fruit Blend.  It was delicious!  I liked the fact that the peach taste was … [Read more...]
