Spicy Jalapeno Chili Queso Dip

I received compensation from Alka-Seltzer® to write this post. All opinions are entirely my own. #MyFoodMoment #CollectiveBias When I was younger I was able to eat a variety of spicy foods without any consequences. Unfortunately, now that I am older, spicy foods are not always good to me and can cause occasional heartburn. Even though certain foods give me occasional heartburn I have a hard time resisting some of my favorite snacks like my Spicy Jalapeno Chili Queso Dip. Before I make my Spicy Jalapeno Chili Queso Dip, I make sure to go to Walmart to not only purchase the necessary ingredients but also Alka-Seltzer® PM Gummies. This is a new product at Walmart that allows me to enjoy the spicy foods that I love when I experience … [Read more...]

Turkey and Vegetable Cabbage Bowl

This post contains affiliate links. Please see full disclosure here. I have recently realized that I need to not only eat meals but to eat healthy meals. I used to get away with eating only a sandwich, a few snacks and a small salad that consisted of iceberg lettuce and way too much salad dressing. After a few medical tests, I was told by my doctor to increase my fiber intake, use Miralax as needed, and eat right, so I challenged myself to do this. I removed iceberg lettuce and added more spinach to my diet and made the time to create some new recipes! One simple recipe that I recently made was a Turkey and Vegetable Cabbage Bowl. This is a simple recipe that can be made with a few healthy ingredients and can also be modified. I … [Read more...]

Tater Tot Bacon Casserole

Sponsored post was written by me on behalf of Tyson Foods, Inc. All opinions are entirely my own. As a mom with 6 kids, I hold Father's Day near and dear to my heart.

Texas Style Queso

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Tyson Foods, Inc. All opinions are entirely my own. I have lived in Texas all of my life and could never see myself living anywhere else. I have traveled outside of Texas only to want to come back as fast as possible. For me, other states don't seem to have the same type of flair for food that Texas has. No other state can create cheeseburgers and Mexican food like Texas can and no other state can create barbecue that will have you coming back for more. In addition, no other state has amazing music like Texas does. One way that my family gets ready for TexFest is by creating some of my favorite Texas dishes like my Texas Style Queso. My family always gets excited when it's … [Read more...]
