My boys are really good about taking their vitamins, especially when they taste as good as these Rainbow Light Power Sours and Bear Essentials do. I know they taste good because I have tried them too. And in addition to tasting so delicious, they are super good for you.

We love Rainbow Light Power Sours Vitamins. They actually taste sweetly sour. They are so convenient in the individual serving packets. My boys think they are as much fun as fruit snacks, but they are getting super healthy vitamins instead.

This orange chicken is amazing. I can't even begin to express how amazing it is. There is a secret, well not exactly a secret, but a special ingredient that takes it from good to WOW. Want to know what that special ingredient is? It's coconut oil. Now you don't have to use coconut oil, you can use whatever oil you like. But take my word for it, if you want the WOW factor use coconut oil.
Coconut oil gives this stir fry a delicious depth of flavor. It creates a layer of flavors where the orange sauce and the coconut oil combine to make culinary magic.
Looking at these pictures, I wish I still had some leftovers, but I enjoyed the last of it for lunch.
Good thing it is really easy to make because my family loves orange chicken. Whip up a quick sauce, chop some chicken and veggies, then stir fry. Simple, easy, and delicious.
3 T. oil (Coconut oil makes this dish amazingly flavorful)
4 boneless chicken breasts or 5-6 thighs, cut up
1 sweet onion, cut into wedges
1-2 cups baby carrots, sliced lengthwise
1 cup orange juice
1 ½ Tbsp. soy sauce
½ tsp. salt
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 Tbsp. brown sugar
1 Tbsp. cornstarch
8 oz. fresh mushrooms, sliced
fresh ground pepper (optional)
Hot cooked rice or noodles
1. Combine orange juice, soy sauce, salt, garlic, brown sugar and cornstarch. Set aside.
2. Heat oil in a large skillet or wok. Then add chicken, onion, and carrots. Cook for a few minutes, then add the mushrooms. Continue cooking, stirring frequently until chicken is cooked through. Add some freshly ground pepper while cooking if you like.
3. Add sauce and cook until sauce thickens and begins to bubble.
4. Serve over hot cooked rice or noodles.

When I saw all of the Christian Halloween products available at Oriental Trading Company, I thought it would be a great opportunity to review some things and donate them to my son's Catholic preschool. My son and his friend who I watch a couple of days a week were so excited to test out some new products.
Aren't these crowns the cutest and I love the Christian messages. They are $3.99 per dozen which I think is a bargain considering how much fun the boys had with them.
They both chose the "Treat Others Sweet Like Jesus Would" crowns and spent the longest time coloring them. I was amazed at how long they spent on their crowns. They color all the time, but the crowns were a "big deal" since they were different than the regular coloring books.
Busy at work.
He will love doing this all over again at preschool.
I also ordered a bag of 500 self adhesive jewels to accessorize the crowns.
They loved sticking the jewels on their crowns.
I thought these temporary tattoos were just adorable and had the sweetest Christian Halloween messages so I ordered two packages to share with my son's class for their Halloween party. There are 72 tattoos in each set. Aren't these the cutest? And what a great way to tell others about Jesus. My boys love the "Batty for Jesus" tattoo.
Being a lover of all things baking, I was excited to try Brach's mini candy corn. I have actually never seen mini candy corn in the store and knew this was something I wanted to try for fall baking.
The result: delicious! They are wonderful on sugar cookies. I made these cute Candy Corn Halloween Cookies. They fit perfectly on the cookies making the cutest little jack-o-lanterns.
Who doesn't need candy at Halloween and what better way than to have it shipped to your door in huge quantities? Oriental Trading Company has lots of big grab bags of candy from which to choose. Save a trip to the store and have it shipped just in time for Halloween.
As you can see Oriental Trading Company has lots of things to help make your Halloween the best one yet. Check out their website where you can request a free catalog and sign up to receive exclusive offers, promotions, and coupons.
Anyone else find candy corn irresistible? I find myself buying it every year and I only want it when the weather turns colder and the leaves start to fall. There is something so nostalgic and familiar about candy corn. It's like Easter eggs at Easter. You just have to have it.
Since candy corn is one of my favorite traditions, I was excited to find mini candy corn.
I knew these would be perfect for baking.
And since I love any excuse to bake cookies, I decided mini candy corn and sugar cookies would pair well together.
Sugar cookies are fun for kids to make too. Little ones can help roll out and cut the cookies. And they really love to decorate. I let my kids use these mess free icing tubes. I have a pampered chef set and a set I found at an after Christmas clearance sale. They are easy for kids to use and icing won't come out of the end like with an icing bag. You may have to help preschoolers since it does take some pressure to squeeze the icing out.
Aren't these the cutest? And they are really yummy too. Now, if I can just keep my boys from eating all of them in one day.
Here's the recipe:
It's funny how much I love this iron skillet considering that when I received it for Christmas from my husband the year we were married I remember thinking "I can't believe my husband bought me an iron skillet for Christmas". I thought it was kind of unromantic even though I was a Family and Consumer Science teacher and loved cooking. I'm sure he was thinking practically and not romantically and thought an iron skillet would be nice.
I hope I was gracious, but I probably gave him a hard time since he went shopping the day we did our own family Christmas (before heading to visit extended family). I had not yet learned the value of a good iron skillet.
Thirteen years later this iron skillet is one of my most prized possessions. It is well seasoned from many years of hard work and love. I cherish the memory of our first Christmas and the first gift that my husband gave me, my prized iron skillet.
A frittata may sound kind of fancy, but really it's just an egg casserole. It's easy, delicious, and versatile. You can take a basic recipe and add different fillings to flavor it however you like. I made this one with spinach and bacon which is a fantastic combination. I made one in a 9 X 13 pan and took it to my church Mom's group meeting a few weeks ago and they loved it. I even had to write out the recipe for a friend. We love frittata for breakfast or a quick week night dinner with a side of sliced tomatoes.
Easy Spinach and Bacon Frittata
3 T. olive oil
½ tsp. dried dill
1 tsp. seasoned salt
1 tsp. salt
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup shredded cheese (I use a Mexican blend or Colby/Jack)
½ lb. bacon, cooked and crumbled
6 to 8 oz. frozen cut leaf spinach (I use ½ of a 12 oz. bag)
Freshly ground salt and pepper
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray or grease a 9 X 13 inch baking pan or a large iron skillet.
2. Whisk the eggs, oil, seasonings, and cheeses in a mixing bowl. Add the bacon and spinach, breaking up the spinach as you put it in. If you find it necessary you can thaw the spinach slightly in the microwave for about 30 seconds so that you can break it up.
3. Mix thoroughly and pour into a prepared baking pan or large iron skillet. Top with freshly ground salt and pepper. Bake for about 45 minutes, until edges are browned and center is set.

I love the pre-made green juice smoothies from the store, but don't usually use green superfood supplement powder so this is kind of a new thing for me. I received Amazing Grass Green Superfood single serve packets to try which come in lots of yummy flavors.
This handy shaker cup makes mixing the greens super easy. I have discovered from trying several flavors that I like them best with orange juice. I tried the Goji & Acai Berry flavor mixed with ice water and could detect a faint berry flavor, but a strong earthy flavor. It was not my favorite mixed with water, but my 4 year old really liked it and finished it. I have enjoyed all of the flavors I have tried with orange juice and would imagine they are delicious in smoothies.
I haven't tried any of them with milk yet, but I am looking forward to trying the chocolate flavor with milk to make a delicious superfood chocolate milk.

We are long time fans of Kidorable products so we were really excited to receive a new pair of rain boots for review. My 4 year old chose this adorable fireman raincoat last February for review so we picked the fireman rain boots to match. So far he is planning on wearing this for Halloween and I think he will be the cutest fireman on the block.
On our adventures we found this amazing spider and he wanted a picture.
My boys have worn Kidorable boots for years and love them. They are comfortable and easy for them to run around in on their outdoor adventures.
So many things to see.
Exploring in the Secret Tunnel. We could spend all day at the children's garden.
Looking for bugs under the stepping stones. He can't resist checking...just in case.
The boots are flexible and really soft on the inside making them extra comfortable.
They have an extra grippy sole to prevent slipping.
