Tips On Keeping Your Preteen Smelling Fresh

 *BzzAgent sent House of Fauci's a Secret Outlast Completely Clean Clear Gel for review. All opinions are my own. Amazon Affiliate links are included also.*  The other day my daughter came home and as she ran up to me so did a peculiar and all too familiar smell; you know that smell. At first I thought my nose was mistaken but then as my nose got closer to her pit I knew it was time for that very important mom and daughter talk. I have to admit that I thought another year would pass before that all too familiar smell entered our home but then again, I did notice a few of her friends had started getting that onion smell as well. Since I have already had experience with talking to my older kids about proper hygiene, I decided to put together … [Read more...]

Savory Meatloaf

Savory Meatloaf

*House of Fauci’s is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to amazon.com.* Growing up I always looked at meatloaf as being a big chunk of hamburger meat that was shaped into a rectangle and smothered in ketchup. At times my mom would torture us and put tiny bits of onions in the mix that were near impossible to pick out. Since that time, I have feared the meatloaf and have pretty much stayed away from  it until I was lucky enough to win a Healthy Solutions Spice Blends prize pack! The first spice blend packet that I chose to use was the Savory Meatloaf. Since my experience with meatloaf had … [Read more...]
