Meisters Cleaner is the worlds best stainless steel cleaner EVER!

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Meister Cleaners. All opinions are 100% mine.

I adore my stainless steel appliances, and I can’t wait to get a fridge that matches my SS stove/microwave combo to complete my kitchen. In the meantime, I do my best to keep my stove and microwave looking new by using Meister Cleaners regularly on the stainless steel parts.

Its very easy for it to get messed up – especially when you’re blogging about food all the time! Sauce bubles up, oil splatters and pots of boiling water can sometimes boil over leaving you with an awesome mess. I have discovered a great way of how to clean your glass cooktop using household ingredients, but for the stainless steel parts I use Meister Cleaners because it leaves it like new – shiny and streak free.

I got the opportunity to try out Meisters Stainless Steel Cleaner and Meisters Stainless Steel Spot Cleaner, and I’m so glad i found out what they’re all about. Simple and easy to use with great results – I couldn’t ask for more from a cleaning product! If you’re looking to stock up on some, just know that Meisters is exclusively sold at Home Depot and found in the appliance department.

Here’s what the Stainless Steel Cleaner did for my microwave!

It turned out so shiny, you could easily see your reflection!

Next I decided to try the Spot Cleaner on my sink. I had a little stain from where my soap dispenser sat and the Spot Cleaner worked beautifully!

My sink never shined so bright!!

Making a healthy, frozen coconut smoothie with Bird’s Eye frozen coconut

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of The Frozen Food Foundation. All opinions are 100% mine.

Since having children, one of the things that I have gotten accustomed to using is frozen fruit and veggies. It all began when JP was teething and I used those little nets that you fill with food and let baby have at it.

There he is back in the day enjoying some frozen strawberries – what a mess! It worked great because it acted as double duty. A healthy and nutritious snack coupled with the fact that the frozen fruit would soothe his sore gums. Poor baby!

Here we are 5 years later, and I still use frozen fruits for lots of things that he likes to eat. He has always been a lover of strawberries and blueberries, so that’s what I buy the most of. I like to blend them up with plain greek yogurt and fruit punch and freeze them to create a yummy frozen yogurt snack that rivals any kind of ice cream out there.

Since I’ve been wanting to try making something different, I picked up some Bird’s Eye frozen coconut the last time I was at the store along with some coconut milk. I thought it would be yummy to make a frozen coconut drink!

I’ve always loved using frozen fruits and veggies because when you buy fresh, they can spoil pretty quickly. Also, it’s a great way to enjoy fruits that aren’t typically in season! Freezing is simply nature’s pause button. Frozen fruits and vegetables are picked and frozen at their peak ripeness, locking in the nutrient value at the point of freezing. Very little nutrient value is lost in the freezing process, and it’s a healthy treat to keep on the ready in your freezer. It’s a convenient, affordable and easy to serve options that help simplify meal preparation. Best of all – studies reveal that frozen fruits and vegetables are most often (or generally) nutritionally equal to – and in some cases better than – their fresh counterparts.

So to make my coconut drink, I used about 1 1/2 cups of ice cubes, 1 can of coconut milk, 1/2 cup of sugar, 1/2 cup of Bird’s Eye frozen shredded coconut and 1/4 cup of heavy cream. Blend until smooth, and enjoy!

Sometimes its nice to have other snacks to offer when putting on a halloween bash – so I made my homemade ranch dip to go with the new Spicy Buffalo Wheat Thins. Wheat Thins are such a good wholesome snack for kids, and I love giving JP the regular ones as a snack for school. I’m just not sure how he will feel about Spicy Buffalo.. Doesn’t matter though, because this ranch dip is for the grown-ups at the party anyway! #CollectiveBias

Lets not forget the limited edition Oreo cookies! With the orange filling and spooky designs embossed on one side, and the other being the classic Oreo that we’ve all known for years. My favorite way to eat them is still to take them apart like I did when I was a kid, starting with the filling and a big cold glass of milk. How do you eat your Oreos?? #SpookySnacks

We caught our first glimpse of this idea this weekend while shopping at Walmart. They had one of those nice little demos going on in-store where they feed you! Being very pregnant and very hungry, I sure do LOVE stumbling into these displays while at the store!

JP rode around in the shopping cart while he enjoyed an Oreo cookie and I snagged a little drop of yummy orange Fanta – that really hit spot! I don’t normally buy orange soda, but a little taste gave me a quick reminder of how much I really do like it, so I grabbed a bottle along with some Wheat Thins and Oreo cookies. I had to check the regular aisle where the crackers were located to find the Spicy Buffalo flavor along with some other favorites like ranch and lime.

They were kinda tucked away, those plastic hanging things with the knick-knacks on them always seem to get in the way of what I’m looking for!

I found the halloween oreos located on its own little display in the middle of the aisles, and grabbed some of those as well.

Later that day, I was excited to see how my homemade dip would taste with the Spicy Buffalo Wheat Thins.. Here’s the recipe:

  • 1 cup of mayo
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 tsp dried chives
  • 1/2 tsp dried parsley
  • 1/2 tsp dill weed
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp pepper

Mix it all together in a bowl, chill and serve! Its supposed to look like plain white ranch dip, but I added a little bit of orange food coloring just for fun.

This will make the perfect ‘non-sweet’ appetizer to lay out at my halloween get-together on Friday! Do you have any special plans for halloween this year? I’d love to hear about them!
