Halo Top Creamery Review

Disclosure: I received product to facilitate this review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.  Please see my disclosure policy)  

If you are on social media at all, I am sure that you have heard about the frozen treat craze that is taking the nation by storm! Halo Top Creamery is a low-calorie, high-protein, and low-sugar ice cream that is made from only the best, all-natural ingredients. Because Halo Top uses only the best ingredients in their ice cream, the flavor is exceptional! 

Now I know that you may be asking yourself, "How can a product such as this taste so delicious and just like ice cream? The answer- Organic Stevia and Erythritol. These are natural replacements for sugar and what makes the Halo Top so delicious! You will not know the difference between Halo Top and your "regular" ice cream as it is amazing! Oh, and did I mention the flavor options that are available? Choose from flavors like Vanilla Bean, Red Velvet, Lemon Cake, Strawberry, Cookies & Cream, Mint Chip, Birthday Cake, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Peanut Butter Cup, Sea Salt Caramel + many more scrumptious flavors! 

Not only do Halo Top Creamery products taste exceptional, but they are also lower in calories than regular ice cream. In fact, each pint has around 250-350 calories per PINT! So, you can indulge in the entire pint if you prefer without feeling guilty! In addition, Halo Top products have a high amount of protein which is always a plus in my book!

I was recently given the opportunity to try Halo Top Creamery for the first time and I can tell you that I am hooked! We tried Peanut Butter Cup, Birthday Cake, S'Mores and Cookies & Cream. I am a huge fan of the Peanut Butter Cup while the boys loved the Cookies & Cream! 

If you are on the fence about trying this delicious frozen treat, I highly encourage you to go for it! You will not be disappointed! The texture is so creamy and each flavor is so decadent and mouth-watering! You will want to try other flavors for sure. I can't wait to try the new flavors like Pumpkin Pie, Caramel Macchiato and Candy Bar that are appearing in stores right now! 

GO HERE to find a store in your area that sells Halo Top Creamery.

Quick and Easy Cuban Pork Sliders Made with Smithfield Pork #RealFlavorRealFast

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Smithfield® Marinated Fresh Pork. The opinions and text are all mine. #RealFlavorRealFast

I can hardly believe that it is almost time for school to begin! I am not quite sure where the summer has gone, but alas, it is once again time to get back into a routine of prepping, planning and preparing easy weeknight dinners.

Since both of my boys will be in school full-time this year and they are involved in many extracurricular activities, it is especially important to me that I have easy and delicious meals on the table that require little effort but that provide real flavor, real fast. Easy and delicious meals will ensure that we have just a few more minutes in our day to enjoy as a family all while going about the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

One of my favorite items to prepare for quick and delicious dinners are Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork products purchased right in the fresh meat section at my local Safeway store. Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork allows me to get dinner on the table in 30 minutes or less any night of the week. These products are also super versatile as they can be grilled, roasted, sautéed or slow cooked. In addition, they are already marinated which means that they are packed full of scrumptious flavor.

My Safeway store had a wide variety of Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork products, so it was hard for me to decide on just one! When I saw the Smithfield Roasted Garlic and Herb Pork Loin Filet, I knew right away that it was the one! This product is dry rubbed and marinated with garlic, onion powder, spices and natural smoke. Smithfield delivers real flavor, real fast right to my table any night of the week.

Sliders and sandwiches are always a fun and easy dinner and one that my boys will devour any day of the week. With the Smithfield Roasted Garlic and Herb Pork Loin Filet, I was able to create a delicious Cuban pork slider that reminded us of our vacation last summer in South Florida.

The Cuban Pork Slider created with Smithfield Roasted Garlic and Herb Pork Loin Filet was definitely a winner at my house! I first cooked the Smithfield pork in the slow cooker, which made it so tender and delicious! Using the slow cooker with the already marinated Smithfield pork saves you even more time in the kitchen, and you have a delicious meal on the table in just minutes!

Smithfield Roasted Garlic and Herb Pork Loin Filet Cuban Pork Sliders

Ingredients:

Smithfield Roasted Garlic and Herb Pork Loin Filet

12 slider buns

12 small pieces of deli ham

12 small pieces of Swiss cheese

12 pickles

Mustard

Directions:

Place the Smithfield Pork Loin Filet in a slow cooker for 4-6 hours on low. You will want to ensure that the meat is cooked through to 145 degrees Fahrenheit. Slow cooking the Smithfield Roasted Garlic and Herb Pork Loin Filet allows the flavors to really distribute throughout the meat and it becomes so tender and juicy!

Remove the pork from the slow cooker and let it rest on a cutting board while you set out the other items for the sliders. Slice the pork into medium sized medallions to place on the sliders.

Place a couple of pork medallions onto a slider bun and assemble the rest of the slider with ham, Swiss cheese, pickles and mustard. Voila! You have the perfect Cuban Pork Sliders! This quick and easy dish is sure to be one of your new family favorites and one that you will reach for again and again!

When you use Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork products, there is no need for marinades or rubs, as the meat is already pre-seasoned. This ensures that you receive real flavor, real fast and that you have a meal on the table the entire family will love!

Do you have a delicious recipe that you would like to share? Smithfield is also challenging you to submit your tips on how to get dinner on the table in 30 minutes or less using Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork.

The Third Season of Tumble Leaf is Coming To Prime Video Tomorrow August 15! 

(All posts may contain affiliate links and/or sponsored content. Please see my disclosure policy) 

Tell the kiddos to get excited! Tomorrow, August 15, a new season of Tumble Leaf is returning to Prime Video! This show is so cute and my boys can't wait for it to return! The characters are so cute and I love how they teach life lessons!

Tumble Leaf invites viewers into a wonder-filled world just waiting to be explored! Each engaging episode centers on the adventures of Tumble Leaf’s most thoughtful, creative and delightfully-curious dweller, Fig the fox. The outdoor-loving Fig lives in a wrecked schooner ship by the sea, where every day he finds a new object of interest, provided by Gingko the crab, that sets him off on fun, nature-centered expeditions. With his trusty companion Stick, a caterpillar who lives in a tiny barrel attached to Fig’s arm; and friends Maple, a plucky polar bear; Hedge, a humble hedgehog; and Pine the porcupine, Fig spends each day playing, making scientific discoveries and seeking answers about his world. 

In Season 3, Fig’s universe expands with new places and special friends, including Pebble the spider, Bonsai the whale and Bird of Paradise! The latest episodes help teach young viewers gentle life lessons through topics that are universally relatable for preschoolers such as a friend moving away and dealing with disappointment.

Catch the Tumble Leaf - Sing-Along Music Video HERE! Your kiddos will have so much singing along with the characters!

Things To Check In Your Home To Keep It Running Smoothly

 (All posts may contain affiliate links. Please see my disclosure policy) 
 

Making sure you home runs smoothly is very important. It dictates how much money you spend on repairing broken things, and how good your quality of life is! If you’re having to constantly replace things that are in your house you’re going to be spending a lot of money, and it’s a hassle to get new things in anyway! This is why it’s important to not cut corners when you’re looking after your house, so carry on reading if you want to find out the most important things to check in your house!

Refrigerator

One of the most important pieces of equipment in your house is your refrigerator. It keeps all of your food in one place, keeping the things that need to be frozen in a frozen state, and keeping everything that needs to be kept cool, cool! It’s where the majority of our food is kept and it’s value is very high to us in the 21st century, without it we’d have to go shopping every day for food as it would just go off if we left it out. If your refrigerator goes down, you know you’re going to be in trouble. You’re going to have hundreds of dollars worth of food that is all going to be ruined. On top of that, you’ll need to buy a new one which can be very costly, and you’ll have to live without one for a while, which is a nightmare to say the least. So, to avoid this disaster of a situation from occurring, what you need to do is get your refrigerator regularly maintained.  These professionals will be able to replace the small fiddly bits that wear down and cause the breakdown of your refrigerator before it happens, giving you the peace of mind that nothing bad is going to happen, saving you emotional and financial stress!

Roof

An integral part of your home is your roof. It protects your house from anything that might fall into it like rain, leaves or even animals! It’s an insulator too, so it keeps all of the heat inside your house. If you’ve got a problem with your roof; you’re going to know about it. Your house will get colder and dampness will begin to settle in your house, which spells doom for a house! This damp can be incredibly difficult to get rid of and often involves replacing whole sections of your attic or in the rest of your house depending on how far it has all spread. We want to avoid this, and so it can easily be done by getting out a roof repair company to take a look at your roof to repair anything that might break later on! This prevents the need to actually get your room and everything else repaired if it breaks, by catching the problem early by getting it checked over every once in awhile it means that the problem itself will never happen, which is what we want!

Door Locks

Almost no one thinks about these little things, but everyone will notice it when it goes wrong! Door locks are very important as they keep us safe from other people that might be trying to steal our belongings, or worse. It also keeps all of your doors shut so heat doesn’t escape, and stops your little ones from wandering where you don’t want them too! The main part of the door is the lock, and due to the intricacy of the lock, it can often break. All of the fiddly bits inside the tumbler are very easy to break if you have someone who is a bit heavy handed in the house, but that isn’t often the case. Rust and lack of oil often are the killers of door locks, so it’s good to learn how to properly look after them so you can do it yourself! It’s an easy process to learn to do and requires very little equipment, so take a few hours to learn how to look after your locks instead of waiting for them to break!

It’s recommended that you do all of these things. If you keep on top of everything and make sure that it all works, it won’t ever go wrong on you! This is important because we value our money and our homes, so we want to keep both of those 2 things in as good a condition as we can manage! These methods are about saving money as well as keeping everything going smoothly, but if you’re looking for more ways to keep your house costs down, read this to help you!
