Cooking Planit

I am always on the lookout for things that make my life easier. Even with a cooking blog, I don’t always know what I am making for dinner. (That happens more than I’d like to admit. LOL). That being said, I have found a great site that makes meal planning as easy as pie. (literally!)

Instead of most of the other cooking/recipe sites out there that give you single recipes (you are only getting the main course or a side dish or a vegetable), Cooking Planit does something I have never seen. First, it gives you three recipes for everything you need for a full meal. Main entree. Check. Side. Check. Veggie. Check. Since the site just launched, they haven’t been able to add all the bells and whistles. However, they will be adding desserts at some point! Next, it gives you a full grocery shopping list that you can modify. You don’t have to sit here and write everything down that you need. Most of the ingredients you need for the majority of recipes and things you are going to have in your home or can easily be found at the grocery store. That is something that is very important to me. It even tells you what kitchen equipment and appliances you are going to need! I also love that the direction for all three recipes are listed on once page! It just makes cooking dinner easy! A few more features in the works are the ability to add your own recipes to the site and calorie counts. You can also easily modify the recipe for how many people you have by a click. Life is sweet! Cooking PlanIt will also show you how to make everything, so it is all done at the same time (which I can never do on my own!):

Now, if you don’t like Kale, you can easily change what you want for your veggies. You can also save your “meal” to your cookbook, so you can make it another night too!

Cooking PlanIt is so easy to use and will make your life easier. I recommend checking it out!!  Best of all, you can use it either on the computer or your mobile device!

Toastabags and More!

I am always on the lookout for products that make my life easier.  I have a found a few that are must gets for all of you!

The Toastabags are beyond easy! This has to be one of my most favorite products! First, you prepare your sandwich (or whatever you want to put in the bag. You can do pretty much anything you want as long as it fits in the bag! The packaging says you can even do chicken nuggets and french fries!). Now, I like to use this for grilled cheese myself. You then put your sandwich in the bag, and then place the bag in the toaster. When the bag pops up, your sandwich is done. You literally get a nice hot sandwich in the time it takes to toast a piece of bread! Seriously! The bags are reusable. (Now you can pick different levels of reusability. Some bags last for 50 uses. Some last 100 uses.) You can even put the bags in the dishwasher to clean them!

If you like a crispy crust pizza, you have to get the PizzaMesh. It allows your pizza to sit directly on the oven rack. That allows air to circulate around your pizza ensuring a crispy crust every time! It can withstands temperatures up to 260°C/500°F and is freezer, microwave and dishwasher safe! Bill won’t make a pizza without a Pizzamesh now!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Quickachips Tray is another great product that we love here. It allows more even contact with the heat of the oven and therefore avoids soggy foods. As you can see from the pictures, we did french fries with it, and it was some of the best fries we’ve ever made. They were super crispy, and I cooked them at the least amount of time it said on the package! The quickachips tray is also great for BBQs and gives you control over your cooking:- no more losing kebabs, sausages or vegetarian food to the coals! The quickachips tray is freezer and dishwasher safe and withstands temperatures up to 260°C.

They have so many other great products, but I wanted to introduce you to these first few products that were definitely winners in my house.  These are great reusable products that we use often in my house!

Tyson Mini Chicken Sandwiches #TysonGoodness #CBias

I am always on the lookout for a great after school snack for my kids. I’m looking for something filling BUT not too filling. I’d also like it to be something that isn’t junk food if I can help it. Tyson Mini Chicken Sandwich is one of those items that fit that bill. Here is my shopping trip to get one of my kids favorite after school snacks:

As you can see, my kids love these as their after school snack. I like that it holds them over to dinner, and they are NOT on a sugar high. They are able to concentrate and get their homework done. Even before I did this shop, Tyson Mini Chicken Sandwiches are a product I have actually bought before in the past. I love how easy it is to make. You literally throw them into the microwave. That’s it. It is easy enough that I think Madison could actually make these herself.

Now, you can’t get these at every Walmart (I ended up having to go to another local one than my regular Walmart). Make sure that you check out Tyson‘s site for the local Walmart that carries these. There is also a great Tyson Mini Chicken Sandwiches Offer going on right now: Buy 2 Tyson Mini Chicken Sandwiches at a participating Walmart and receive a $5 Walmart Gift Card! (This offer is good while supplies last!)

If you are looking for a great after school snack, Tyson Mini Chicken Sandwiches are the answer.
