Pork: Be Inspired


Everyone knows Pork is the other white meat, but it also gets a bad wrap. Many times pork is considered as unhealthy and/or dry. Both of those things are untrue and its time to give Pork another chance.

 

Keep your pork moist by not overcooking it!

Both the USDA and the National Pork Board recommend using a digital cooking thermometer to get an accurate internal temperature reading for your pork. While an internal temperature between 145 degrees F. (medium rare) and 160 degrees F. (medium), followed by a 3-minute rest is where you want to be for chops, tenderloin and roasts, ground pork should always be cooked to 160° F and pre-cooked ham can be reheated to 140° F.

Looking for a healthy pork choice?

Pork tenderloin is certified to carry the American Heart Association’s Heart-Check mark, making it a heart-healthy choice for you and your family. Each serving of pork tenderloin packs tons of nutrients and, ounce for ounce, is as lean as skinless chicken breast!

 I got my chance through BzzAgent, I received a BzzCampaign where I was given a coupon to purchase a pork product from my local Kroger store. I picked up pork loin chops and I was worried that they would come out dry. I followed the USDA and National Pork Board recommendations for cooking the pork and they turned out moist and so juicy that you could cut them with a fork. I am definitely a fan of pork again. What truly amazes me is that there are so many ways to prepare pork, so if your interested in spicing your pork up check out the links and recipe below.

Kroger Private Selection Upside Down Cakes


  • Available in three decadent varieties:
  • German Chocolate Fudge – chocolate fudge cake topped with caramel, coconut and pecan frosting
  • Double Chocolate Molten – moist chocolate cake topped with molten chocolate
  • Amber Honey Apple Spice – cinnamon spiced cake topped with apple slices and honey glaze
  • Made with premium ingredients, including real butter, fine chocolates and fruits, just like homemade
  • Only minutes to prepare – just warm, flip & serve
  • You’ll find them in the bakery section of the Kroger family of stores

  •  
     The cake that I picked up at my Local Kroger store was the Double Chocolate Molten cake.

     The directions were very simple to follow: warm the cake in the oven for 12 minutes (or microwave for 3). Then flip the cake onto a serving plate and watch all the toppings drip over the sides. and that is exactly what I did (microwave version). Unfortunately I didn't get a chance to take a picture before everyone devoured the cake. I did at least get a picture of my piece with my vanilla ice cream cream.

    After flipping the cake over the cakes appearance was bakery case quality. The texture of the cake was more like a dense brownie rather then cake, but to me the texture went great with the chocolate glaze. The cake also had a brownie taste but it was not as sweet. As far as the chocolate glaze it was more like a dark chocolate, together they were the perfect combination. In my opinion this cake would be great for any get together.

    My Possible Serving Suggestions

    • Sprinkle some chopped nuts on top.
    • Drizzle with melted peanut butter.
    • Swirl caramel on top.
    • Drizzle with melted marshmallow fluff.
    • Sprinkle with crushed cookies.
    • Sprinkle with chopped candy bars.
    • eat with the ice cream of your choice.

    Maybelline Colossal Cat Eyes

    While on the lookout for the perfect mascara I kept seeing the commercial for the Colossal Cat Eyes. It didn't help that Walgreens had Maybelline products on sale BOGO 50%. So I picked up Maybelline Falsies for 7.99 and got Maybelline Colossal Cat Eyes for 3.99. This mascara is suppose to provide Instant volume, no clumps, with collagen.
     
    The wand is a claw wand.
     
    My lashes before.
     
    My lashes after.
     

    My Opinion

    I love the way the mascara makes my outer lashes look a little longer, to help with that cat eye look. I just might have to post the cat eye difference with and without the mascara. There were no clumps. The mascara didn't flake at all. The mascara is waterproof so you would definitely need makeup remover to get it off. The formula is thin but that makes it very buildable.

    Have you ever tried this mascara and if you have how do you feel about it?

    Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector Oil-Free B.B. Cream


    Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector Oil-Free B.B. Cream is a new multi-faceted solution for a multitude of skin concerns. If you have oily skin, then you probably have a product to treat shine, and to minimize pores, and to cover blemishes. And maybe a few more products, too. Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector Oil-Free B.B. Cream can address all those oily-skin needs with just one application. Your skin will have a flawless, lightweight matte finish, and you’ll only need one product to get it.

     

     

    Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector Oil-Free B.B. Cream:

    • Works on combination to oily skin with three shades: Light/Medium, Medium/Deep, and Deep
    • Features an ultra absorbent formula and contains mineral Perlite, which retains twice its weight in oil and water
    • Is formulated with sheer natural mineral pigments, so you’ll get a natural matte finish with each use
    • Is non-comedogenic and non-acnegenic: it won’t clog pores or cause breakouts
    • Is oil-free, non-greasy
    • Is Available for a suggested retail price of $12.99
    I used the Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector Oil-Free B.B. Cream with high hopes of it working for my skin. I was sent the Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector Oil-Free B.B. Cream in Medium/Deep. The reason I chose Medium/Deep was because from my experience with other B.B. Creams Deep is to dark for me. To my surprise Medium/Deep is to light for my skintone, so I have to mix Medium/Deep, and Deep to get a workable color for my skintone.

    The Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector Oil-Free B.B. Cream age went on with a sheer coverage. I didn't mind the sheer coverage because I don't intend to use it as a foundation. Its as if its my skin with a matte finish. I did notice that the Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector Oil-Free B.B. Cream did keep down the shine in my oily spots. As for my dry spots it made them look flaky so I have to make sure to use a moisturizer

    As far as my overall thoughts on the Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector Oil-Free B.B. Cream, I would definitely recommend it. So if you haven't tried it go check it out

    Infused with superfruits, the Hydra Recharge formula actively replenishes hair for silky-soft hydration that lasts. Hydra Recharge will recharge your thirsty locks and keep your hair super silky and surprisingly weightless for up to two whole days.
    • Hydra Recharge Shampoo is a hydration innovation; the first to feature thousands of beads that burst on impact

    I was super excited to try the Garnier Fructis Hydra Recharge because I've never had a problem with any of their products.

    I started by trying the Garnier Fructis Hydra Recharge on my natural hair usually dry. After one wash with the Garnier Fructis Hydra Recharge I could really tell a difference. My hair is usually so dry that it tangles really badly but after using the Garnier Fructis Hydra Recharge it was really soft and manageable.

    I had such great success with using the Garnier Fructis Hydra Recharge on my natural hair that I decided to try it on my extensions. I've had my extensions for about six months and they started to look dry so I used the Garnier Fructis Hydra Recharge products and the condition of my hair did a complete 180. I can actually say that the extensions are like new.

    Pros:
    • Wonderful Scent
    • Great Hydration
    • Lasting healthy shine
    Cons:
    • You'll want to keep it all to yourself.

    In my opinion the Garnier Fructis Hydra Recharge line contains some excellent products. I would definitely recommend the products to anyone that has dry hair. The products really hydrate your hair and make it look healthy and the wonderful smell is a added plus. I can see myself using this products for years to come.

    FriXion by Pilot Pen


    FriXion is the newest innovation from pilot, the #1 seller of gel ink pens In America.

     FriXion by Pilot Pen :
    $4.50 for A 4-pack
    $11.00 for 8-pack

    Colors Available:
    Black , Blue, Red, Lime Green, Purple, Pink, Orange and Brown

    Write, Erase, Rewrite! FriXion Ball Erasable Gel Pen contains a thermo-sensitive gel ink formula which disappears with erasing friction. This means no wear or tear to the writing surface!

    FriXion by Pilot Pens aren't like any other erasable pens, their gel pens and they don't actually have an eraser. No eraser? is what you might be thinking, but its true. Instead of an eraser these pens have a rubber tip. The friction from the rubber tip is what actually erases the ink for you. For me being a gel pen and not having an traditional eraser are major pluses for me. Before trying these pens I didn't like erasable pens because they left smudges and eraser pieces everywhere. I love the fluidity of gel pens and the ability to erase the ink if I made a mistake. In my opinion this is the best erasable pen that your going to find.
    
    Now you get creative with a gel pen!
    And really erase the mistakes

    Schick Hydro Silk

    Have you ever used Schick Hydro Silk?

    If you haven't maybe you should give it a try. You would think it just another razor, but this razor has several features that make for a closer, easier and moisturizing shave.

     Moisturizing Serum
    Water-activated Moisturizing Serum hydrates throughout each shave and is infused with nourishing marine extracts and hydrating shea butter.

    Curve Sensing Blades
     5 Curve Sensing Blades deliver an incredibly close shave for silky smooth skin.

    Skin Guards
     Skin Guards are added to each blade, doubling the points of contact between the blades and the skin. The Blades and Skin Guards work together to smooth your skin as you shave to reduce irritation.

    Compact Oval Cartridge
    The unique oval cartridge is designed for the contours and curves of a woman’s body, including those hard to reach places.

    Soft Touch Handle
     Aqueous Soft Touch Handle is ergonomic by design with a soft rubber grip and is inspired by water for a beautiful look. The patent-pending duck bill feature enables the razor to be placed on a flat surface while holding the cartridge head away from that surface.
     
     


    The Schick Hydro Silk razor lives up to everything that it says. This razor left my legs totally smooth and hairless. I didn't have any problems with keeping a grip on the razor because of the Soft Touch handle. The most important thing of all was the fact that I didn't get any cuts, so that was a major plus. This razor is definitely a razor that I would recommend.

    MorningStar Farms® veggie burgers


    I was given the opportunity to try MorningStar Farms® veggie burgers through Bzzagent.com. The simple thought of a burger with out meat in it sound a bit off putting to me. I'd like to think that I'm a pretty brave person so, I headed to the store and picked up the MorningStar Farms® Grillers Prime® Veggie Burgers.

    MorningStar Farms® Grillers Prime® Veggie Burgers
    It's savory, a little smoky, best grilled and served on a bun, then topped with whatever makes your mouth water.
    • 170 calories, 17g protein, 39% less fat*
    *MorningStar Farms® Grillers Prime® Veggie Burgers (71g) contain 9g fat per serving, compared with regular ground beef (71g) containing 15g fat per serving.

    The burgers are pretty simple to prepare:
    • Skillet: 7-7 ½ minute
    • Microwave: Until heated thoroughly
    • Grill: Internal temp of 165°F
    I Prepared my burger with:
    • Tri-Color Bell peppers
    • A sprinkle of garlic powder
    • Sharp Cheddar
    • Mustard
    • Mayo
    Before adding my toppings I decided to taste the burger pattie so that I could give my honest opinion on the taste compared to a traditional burger. The flavor of the pattie alone tasted like a burger but with a slight flavor that I couldn't identify. Once I added my topping the MorningStar Farms® Grillers Prime® Veggie Burgers taste exactly like a regular burger. I would definitely recommend this burger to anyone looking to try something new or looking to cut calories.

    If my topping aren't your style be sure to check out the MorningStar Farms® website for all of the meatless possibilities.

    Palmolive Fresh Infusions

     Taking cues from nature, Palmolive® created inviting, naturally inspired fragrance blends - and combined them with the sparkling clean you've always trusted from Palmolive® dish liquid. Infuse your kitchen with freshness.   
     
    Fresh Infusions™are available at Walmart for $2.99
     
    Their new creation are Palmolive Fresh Infusions Dish Detergents. These new detergents come in 3 wonderful scents,Ginger White Tea, Lemon Thyme, and Lime Basil. I was given the chance to try the Palmolive Fresh Infusions, through Influenster.com. Influenster sent me a full sized bottle of each scent. as soon as I got the package I had to open it and smell them. They all smell really good even though I really don't care for they way limes smell. The scents of the Palmolive Fresh Infusions smell remarkably fresh, as if they ground the ingredients up and poured them in the bottle.

    In my package I also received some coupons to share with friends. I love telling people about new products and passing on savings so with these coupons I got to do both. i have several friends that are into couponing and I knew they would love these coupons. I even mailed off some coupons to a friend in Florida. She called me to let me know that she tried the Ginger White Tea scent. She said that it smells amazing, she also said that sometimes she'll make a small amount of dish water in the sink just to make her kitchen smell good.
     
    I shared the Lime Basil bottle with my niece because I've never been a fan of lime. I asked her what she thought of the scent and she loves it, and she plans on buying more of it. She says the it smells like someone cut up some limes and dropped them in the dish water..
     
    My favorite scent is the Ginger White Tea, I love it because the smell is exactly what I imagine when I hear the word fresh. I instantly think of springtime when I use the Palmolive Fresh Infusions. In my book anything that can make your mind travel to springtime during the cold winter months is a winner in my book. I'm not a big fan of washing dishes but its one of those things that you have to do, and I can honestly say that the pleasant scent helps a lot.
     
    This product lives up to the Palmolive® name. The scents don't seem artificial at all they are light, and clean smelling. Just like other Palmolive® products I don't have to worry about my hands drying out. I can honestly say that these are the best smelling dish detergents that I've ever smelled. Besides the scent the Palmolive Fresh Infusions clean and cut grease wonderfully. They also get off any stuck on mess, and the fact that they look great in the kitchen are a plus.

    Vixen COVERGIRL blastflipstick

     Vixen come with a pink shade on  both ends.
    One end is a light shimmery pink,the other end is a darker pink with a little less shimmer.
    Here you can see the color combinations better.

    As you can see from the above picture there is not a big difference between the 2 colors. overall I like the concept but I feel that the colors should have had a more dramatic difference. The colors went on smoothly and I didn't have any problems with the wear or staining.

I was very excited to try the polishes because I'd never tried those brands before. I decided to pick out 2 colors from each brand.

    Nabi

    The consistancy on these polishes was perfect,
    I would compare it to some of the more expensive polishes.

    KleanColor

    These polishes had a thin consistancy that made it very easy to apply,
    these would be perfect for someone who has trouble painting their own nails.

    so you could get away with just one coat if your in a hurry.
     
    I tried out all of the polishes and I must admit that they are all good quality and I would definitely purchase all 3 brands. I didn't have any problem out of the polishes, I have no complaints.

    BB Couture Nail Polish

     
    Have you ever heard of  BB Couture? If not your missing out, they have an amazing array of polishes. They have dozens of colors to choose from, and not just for women they have polishes for me too. The polishes from BB Couture have the base coat, strengtheners and top coat added in.
    Their formulas are VEGAN, CRUELTY FREE and FREE of FORMADEHYDE, TOLUENE and DBP.
     
    Price Range: $7.95-$10.95
    15ml/0.05oz
    I was fortunate enough to receive 3 polishes to try out from BB Couture. 
    When I received the polishes they were packaged were packaged very well. Each polish was wrapped individually in bubble wrap, the wrapped together in bubble wrap. The box was also packed to capacity with packing peanuts, so there was no way the polish could get damaged.

    Mustard Yellow with Pink Shimmer
     
    Painted Lady
    Hot Orange with Glitter Sprinkles
     
    Dirt Mother
    Dusty Pink Creme
    The first thing that caught my eye was the actual polish bottle because of the bold blue top. I love that the bottle is simplistic. I am very pleased with the quality of the polishes. The polishes went on very smoothly without streaks. It took 2 coats to get an opaque coverage. I painted my nails using all 3 colors and wore them for 7 days before I took the polish off. While wearing the polish I didn't have any problems. The BB Couture polishes actually lasted longer then any other polish that I've used.
     

    Would I recommend BB Couture Polishes? 

    Based solely on my experience with the company and use of the polishes, I would most definitely recommend BB Couture. I love the pigmentation of the polishes and the fact that their array of colors aren't what you would usually find in stores. I'm looking forward to purchasing and trying more of their polish colors in the future.
