These small kitchen organization products will make your life so much easier! 

Small Kitchen Organization Products

Now that Christmas is over, I am already starting to think about my resolutions for the new year. Last year, my resolution was to lose weight, and I accomplished that while on the keto diet. It feels so amazing to actually achieve the goals you set for yourself! This post contains affiliate links. I may earn a commission if you make a purchase after clicking a link in this post.

My two big resolutions for the upcoming year are to get my house organized, and to be a lot more frugal with my money.

My house is very small, at only 960 square feet. We don’t really have a lot of storage room for things, so I am going to be tackling my house room by room, and adding some organization products that won’t break the bank.

The first room I am going to organize is my kitchen. My kitchen is super small, and it’s really disorganized at the moment. I absolutely love to cook, and want to do more home cooking next year to save money, so I have got to get this kitchen organized better.

I have been searching for small kitchen organization products to maximize the space in my kitchen, and make it easier for me to find things.

Here are some of the best small kitchen organization products I found to help me get the most of out my kitchen space.  If you could use a little help in the kitchen organization department too, then check them out!

SMALL KITCHEN ORGANIZATION PRODUCTS

1.  Maximize Kitchen Cabinet Space

I don’t have a lot of cabinet space in my small kitchen, and the cabinets I do have are always cluttered. I feel like I never really have enough room to store all of my dishes properly, and they are all just piled up on top of each other. It makes it super hard to find what I want, when I want it. I’m hoping to maximize my kitchen cabinet space with a Kitchen Cabinet Organizer.

When you don’t have a lot of cabinet space to work with, you have to get creative, and find ways to maximize the cabinet space you do have.

I really like this kitchen cabinet organizer because you can stack your dinnerware, mugs, cans, etc. Using up that wasted storage space at the top of your cabinets is a great idea, and this is one of my favorite small kitchen organization products!

The white color coordinates well with a variety of colors and finishes, and will look great in my kitchen!

2.  Organize Kitchen Wraps for Easy Viewing

I have a whole drawer full of different kitchen wraps – foil, parchment paper, saran wrap etc.  They are just all piled in there, on top of one another, and it makes it really hard for me to find what I’m looking for.

I end up having to pull out nearly every box some times just to get to the one I want.  Sometimes I cut my hand on the jagged edge of the boxes too while I’m digging around in there.  It’s definitely not fun!

This Kitchen Wrap Organizer is one of the best small kitchen organization products for organizing all of your kitchen wraps. How much easier would this make my life??  So much!  Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to easily see all of your kitchen wraps, and just grab the one you want within seconds?

Here’s another one that you can attach to a shelf!

3.  Organize Muffin Tins, Cutting Boards & Baking Pans

Currently, all of my flat housewares – muffin tins, cutting boards, baking pans, etc., are taking up a huge amount of space in one of my cabinets.  They are all just piled in there on top of each other, and when I am trying to find something in particular, it gets pretty noisy with me banging everything around trying to find what I am looking for!

This Better Houseware Organizer would help me out immensely.  This would save a lot of room in my cabinet and also make it very easy for me to quickly find and grab what I want, without making any loud banging noises!

4.  Organize Pans

Here’s another great small kitchen organization product that I absolutely!  Just like my baking sheets, cutting boards, etc., my pans are a complete mess inside my cabinet.  With this Pan Organizer Rack, storing your pans is easy!

5.  Organize Spices

Are you looking for a better way to organize your spices?  Last year, my spice cabinet was an absolute mess. I could never find what I was looking for, and I ended up buying duplicates of spices all the time because I just couldn’t find the ones I needed.

My husband bought me this Spice Rack and Stackable Organizer, and it is absolutely amazing at organizing spices and maximizing cabinet space.  Look how easy it is to find spices now! No more cluttered mess of spices in the cabinet makes me a happy cook!

I save time, and money with this spice organizer, because I am no longer searching for the spices I need, or buying duplicates! This is hands down one of my very favorite small kitchen organization products!

6.  Organize Seasoning Packets, Dip Mixes & Spice Pouches

I like to keep a fair amount of seasoning packets, dip mixes & spice pouches on hand.  These are an easy way to add flavor to my dishes, and they are really cheap, so I can stock up on a bunch of them at a time.  Finding a place to store them, always seems to cause a problem though.  They don’t really store very well just on their own, as they get lost in amongst the other stuff in my pantry.

This Spice Rack and Stackable Organizer is such a great idea! It will keep all of your seasoning packets, dip mixes and spice pouches in one place, and makes it easy to find the one you are looking for.

7.  Organize Snacks

If you like to keep a good stock of individually wrapped snack foods in the house, then you’ll want to check out this Snack Bin.  This is a great way to keep your snacks in one place, so you can easily grab one and go!

8.  Organize Plastic Bags

I have a little secret… I have a cabinet in my laundry room that houses plastic shopping bags.  Lots and lots of plastic shopping bags.

They are all just kind of thrown in there, and about 5 or so spill out every time I open the cabinet door!  The cabinet is such a mess, but I don’t want to throw my bags away.  I use them quite often – as trash bags for my bathroom trash, to send company home with leftovers when they come to visit, to send my sisters home with freebies I have collected when they come to visit, etc.

This Plastic Bag Holder would be a lifesaver for me!  You can hang it right over the cabinet door, and it will hold those pesky plastic bags in a much better way.  I love the little hole on the front of it, making it easy to pull a bag out when you want one.

9.  Organize K-Cups

If you have a Keurig, then you most likely keep lots of different K-cups on hand.  I do, anyway.  I’ve always got a huge variety of k-cups, so that I, and my company, have lots of options to choose from.

This cool little K-Cup Storage Drawer is awesome!  It saves valuable counter & cabinet space by allowing you to store your k-cups right underneath your Keurig!  Simply slide the drawer out and grab your favorite k-cup!

Wouldn’t it be great to have a way to organize all of your cans so you can easily see what you have in stock in your pantry?  Take a look at this Organize It All Can Rack. What an awesome idea!

I am so excited to spend time with my friends and family this holiday season. We love getting together to share laughs, great food and cocktails!

Before I had kids, I used to spend hours planning and making sure everything was just perfect for our parties. Now that I’m a Mom with two young kids, I don’t have the time or energy to do that, so I get a little help from Sam’s Club. They make shopping for holiday gatherings so easy, and really help take the stress out of entertaining.

I love buying my family’s favorite party snacks in bulk. A huge container of Member’s Mark Deluxe Mixed Nuts with Sea Salt is seriously such a time saver, and a 2 pack of Simply Lemonade® is great for keeping my punch bowl full all night!

Member's Mark Mixed Nuts and Simply Lemonade

Nuts are a fantastic snack to have at a party. Everyone loves them, and they go great with drinks. There’s no need to worry about baking something, making a mess in the kitchen, keeping it warm or refrigerated. You can just leave them out, relax and enjoy the party with your friends and family.

I absolutely love the variety in this package. It includes cashews, almonds, pecans, hazelnuts and blanched almonds. It’s such a great mix!

Member's Mark Deluxe Mixed Nuts

I especially like that I can just fill up some festive cups with these nuts, and they are good to go!

Member's Mark Deluxe Mixed Nuts

I just leave these cups out on the table next to my punch bowl, and guests can easily help themselves when they want something to munch on. It’s so quick and easy!

Member's Mark Mixed Nuts

Having a big bowl of punch at my parties is an absolute must for me. It’s something I can prepare ahead of time, and I don’t have to worry about constantly getting drinks for my guests. They can just help themselves.

QUICK & EASY CHERRY POMEGRANATE LEMONADE

Making a festive party punch doesn’t have to be complicated. I usually just pick a few different flavors I know will work together, and run with it. This year, I thought it would be great to pair cherry and pomegranate flavors with Simply Lemonade®. It’s a perfect holiday flavor combination that tastes absolutely delicious.

Quick and Easy Cherry Pomegranate Lemonade

INGREDIENTS:

3 cups Simply Lemonade®

2 cups tart cherry juice

2 cups pomegranate juice

4 cups vodka (optional)

4 cups seltzer water

DIRECTIONS:

Pour all ingredients into a large punch bowl and gently mix to combine. Add the seltzer water in last to retain its fizz.

Add large ice cubes or an ice ring to keep punch cold. Garnish with lemon slices, pomegranate arils and frozen dark sweet cherries, if desired.

Head to Sam’s Club to pick up Simply Lemonade® and Member’s Mark Nuts for your next holiday gathering. It will save you so much time!

Staying on a keto diet through the holidays can be challenging! Surprise your keto dieting friends and family members with an awesome keto gift basket to help keep them on track this holiday season! Read on to see some of my favorite keto-friendly treats for filling your keto gift basket.

Keto Gift Basket

My husband and I were on a keto diet during the holidays last year, so I know just how hard it can be to resist temptation during this time of year. Everyone around us was stuffing their faces with sugar filled holiday goodies, while we were trying to stay as far away from them as possible.

Staying keto through the holidays can be very challenging, and I certainly would have greatly appreciated a keto gift basket full of delicious keto-friendly foods to help make it a little easier! This post contains affiliate links. I may earn a commission if you make a purchase after clicking a link in this post. 
Most holiday gift baskets are full of candy, chocolates and other sugar-laden foods. If you know someone who is currently on a keto diet, they are not going to want a gift basket full of sugar this Christmas!

KETO GIFT BASKET IDEAS

Here are some great keto gift basket ideas that the keto dieter in your life will absolutely love! These are all things I really enjoyed while I was on the keto diet, and they are very popular in the keto community

Keto Gift Basket Ideas

CHEESE

Cheese is pretty much a staple on the keto diet. It’s low in carbs, but is a great source of fat and protein!

These cheesy snacks would be a great addition to any keto gift basket. They are absolutely delicious, and there’s no need to worry about keeping them refrigerated. I love dunking mine in dip, or eating them with pepperoni. 

Learn how to make cheese crisps at home! Wrap them up in a pretty bag, and add them to your keto gift basket.

PICKLE POPS

People on a keto diet need to keep their magnesium levels in check so they don’t start to feel sluggish. A lot of people keep their magnesium levels up by eating pickles or drinking pickle juice.

Add some of these pickle ice freeze pops to your keto gift basket for a fun little pick-me-up! They are a bit unusual and something your keto dieter friend will find very interesting.

PORK CLOUDS

Pork clouds are a great addition to a keto diet. They are a great way to get that “crunch” fix taken care of, without all the carbs. I love dunking them in my favorite dip, or using them in place of breadcrumbs when cooking! I have even made pork cloud nachos before that were delicious!

These pork clouds come in three great flavors – Malabar Black Pepper, Habanero Pepper, and Rosemary & Sea Salt.  Yum!

OLIVES

I ate a ton of olives while I was on the keto diet. They were one of my favorite snacks, and paired well with a plate of cheese, pickles and deli meats.

These savory pepper flavored olives are an excellent on-the-go snack choice for keto dieters because they are packed without the juice.

NUTS

Nuts are another way to get that “crunch” fix without all the carbs. Some nut varieties are on the carby side, so you have to pay close attention to the nutrition label, but these almonds and macadamia nuts are perfect for a keto diet.

ALMOND BUTTER

Almond butter is a fantastic way to take care of a sweet tooth while on the keto diet. A little taste goes a long way and can kill a craving fast.

A lot of people will make “fat bombs” with the almond butter, or it can be slathered on a piece of celery or eaten with a spoon straight out of the jar! Make sure you get one that’s made from almonds only, and with no added ingredients.

LILY’S DARK CHOCOLATE CHIPS

Lily’s Dark Chocolate Chips are very popular among keto dieters. Women in particular absolutely love these delicious little morsels that help satisfy a sweet tooth, and make that “time of the month” a little more bearable. They are great for snacking on, or baking up keto-friendly treats.

Your keto dieting friend would be thrilled to see these in their keto gift basket!

PINK HIMALAYAN SALT

Keto dieters need to increase their salt intake, and Pink Himalayan salt is a wonderful way to do that.

This Pink Himalayan Salt Giant Spice Grinder would be a perfect addition to a ketogenic gift basket.

APPLE CIDER VINEGAR

A lot of people on the keto diet take apple cider vinegar on a daily basis for its incredible health benefits. Make sure you buy the “one with the mother”!

HEALTHY COOKING OILS

Keto cooks need lots of healthy fats to cook with and this bundle of avocado oil spray, coconut oil spray and ghee spray, and Salted White Truffle Grass-Fed Ghee Butter would be a fantastic addition to a keto gift basket.

COFFEE

Most keto dieters I know drink lots of coffee, so you can’t go wrong with adding a bag of ground coffee to a keto gift basket! Include a nice self-stirring mug for making bulletproof coffee!

NUT FLOURS

A lot of keto recipes call for almond flour and/or coconut flour, but it can be a bit on the expensive side so a lot of people shy away from buying it on a regular basis.

There are lots of great recipes I have been dying to try out, but I’m just too darn cheap to buy these flours for myself. They would make excellent additions to a keto gift basket!

HEALTHY SEEDS

Ground flax seeds and chia seeds would also be great to include in your keto gift basket. They both have amazing health benefits and are quite versatile for use in the keto diet. I love using them to make “noatmeal”!

BACON FLAVORED COCONUT CHIPS

Bacon is a very popular food choice on the keto diet, and any keto dieter who loves bacon would love these bacon flavored crunch coconut chips.

NON-FOOD KETO GIFT BASKET IDEAS

If you want to add some non-food items to your keto gift baskets, Keto books and cook books are great options. There are lots of really helpful ones to choose from!

Keto dieters love sharing their love of the keto diet with everyone, and these fun keto t-shirts and mugs would be awesome additions to your ketogenic gift baskets!

If you don’t want to make a full-on gift basket for your keto dieting friend, a keto mug and a bag of coffee is one of my favorite keto diet gift ideas.
Some other great keto diet gift ideas are a meat packageicon, a vegetable spiralizer, a lettuce spinner, or a digital kitchen scale. 

The keto diet is very popular right now. These keto gift basket ideas are perfect for any friend or family member, teacher, boss, etc., who is on a keto diet. 

What will you add to your keto gift basket?

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Tyson Foods, Inc. All opinions are entirely my own. 

Being a Mom is the hardest role I have ever filled. I am constantly questioning myself. Am I setting a good example for my kids? Am I making the best decisions for them? Am I spending enough quality time with them? The questions seem to never end. There is always a new one lurking at the back of my mind.

There is no handbook for parenting. Everyone’s kids and parenting styles are different, and we all just have to do what works best for us and our families. I would love to say that we should not be so hard on ourselves, but I know just how difficult that is. We strive to do everything we can for our kids, and to give them a great start in life.

One thing I know we all beat ourselves up over is what we feed our kids on a daily basis. We question whether or not we are giving them enough wholesome foods, if they are getting enough nutrients, and enough of a variety of foods. We deal with picky eaters and hectic mealtimes, and we stress about how we are going to get a delicious and well balanced meal on the table.

Dinnertime in our home is often completely chaotic. My kids always seem to get wound up and incredibly hyper after my husband gets home from work at the end of the day. I know they are just excited to see him, but trying to cook a wholesome meal in the midst of all of the excitement is really quite difficult.

Our kitchen and living room are an open layout, so they are constantly coming into the kitchen while I am trying to cook. It would really be so much easier if I could keep them out, but that’s not a possibility, so I always keep a stash of Tyson® chicken products in my freezer to help make mealtime a breeze.

Tyson Chicken Products

I have always been a fan of Tyson chicken products, and my local Walmart has an amazing selection to choose from. My absolute favorite are the Tyson® Any’tizers® snacks. I just picked up a bag of Any’tizers® buffalo style hot wings and sriracha flavored boneless chicken bites on my recent shopping trip to Walmart.

Tyson Any'tizers

My husband and I love spicy foods, and these really hit the spot! I enjoy eating them as is, or adding them to a salad. Tyson chicken products have a collection of recipes on their website too, so we find lots of great new ideas to keep our meals interesting!

Tyson Buffalo Wings

Any’tizers snacks are perfectly seasoned and every bite is delicious!

Tyson Sriracha Chicken Bites

Like every other kid I know, my own kids absolutely love Tyson chicken nuggets. My 2 year old son will eat just about anything you put in front of him, but my 4 year old daughter is very picky about food. One thing she never gives me a hard time about eating is chicken nuggets. She will gobble them right up with a smile on her face, and I love that they are a great source of protein.

Tyson Chicken Nuggets

I also love that there are so many specially marked Tyson chicken products (including nuggets, strips, Any’tizers snacks and drumsticks) that have the label ‘No Antibiotics Ever’. What this means is that Tyson chicken products are raised without antibiotics, and are made with 100% all natural ingredients* (*No artificial ingredients, minimally processed). Look for the green label to find these specially marked products.

Tyson No Antibiotics Ever Label

The people who make Tyson products have a strong heritage. They have been raising chickens since 1935! Tyson chicken products are made with a long-standing dedication to quality. As Moms, we can feel good about serving all Tyson chicken products with no antibiotics ever to our families.

I recently turned 36 years old, and I’ve been feeling my age a lot lately. The grey hairs have started popping up more frequently, I’m seeing laugh lines all over my face that were never there before, and I’ve been dealing with some serious back pain. I remember how I used to laugh at all those jokes about getting older and having back pain, but it’s really no joke! Back pain can make you feel miserable and ruin your whole day.

My body has been feeling a little out of whack for a while now. Getting older, having two difficult pregnancies in the last 5 years, and losing 100 pounds really took its toll on me. The sciatic nerve pain I had been experiencing was almost unbearable at times, and getting a good night’s sleep was difficult.

When I don’t get enough sleep, I am super grumpy the next day. As a stay-at-home Mom to two toddlers, that’s not really the mood I want to be in all day. I want to feel well rested, energetic, happy and excited to spend the day playing with my kids. I strive to set a good example for them, and I can’t do that very well if I am exhausted and in a bad mood. I received a Tomorrow Sleep mattress and pillows for the purpose of this review. All thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.

When Tomorrow Sleep offered to send me a new memory foam hybrid mattress to review, I jumped at the chance. In all honesty, I had been ignoring my need for a new mattress for quite some time. I was sleeping on a 14 year old mattress, and while it was still in good condition, it was definitely time for a change. I was 22 years old when I bought that mattress. My body was different then. My sleep habits were different. A lot has changed in 14 years!

My husband and I have been sleeping on the Tomorrow Sleep mattress for almost 2 weeks now, and we are in love with it! We have both been sleeping better than ever, and can’t believe how much more refreshed we feel in the mornings since we started sleeping on the Tomorrow Sleep mattress. It has really made a world of difference for both of us. Below, I have listed five reasons why I love the Tomorrow Sleep mattress, and why I think you will too!

5 Reasons Why You'll Love a Tomorrow Sleep Mattress

1. HIGH QUALITY & COMFORTABLE – Tomorrow Sleep is backed by Serta Simmons Bedding, so they have over a century worth of research, development, and insights into sleep. My 14 year old mattress was actually a Serta, so I know just how high quality and long lasting their mattresses are! Tomorrow Sleep’s hybrid mattresses are built by skilled craftsmen in their own factory in Charlotte, NC. I love buying products that are made right here in the USA!

The Tomorrow Sleep mattress is designed to adjust to your body temperature and provide you with support that is essential to restorative sleep. The mattress is available in medium soft or medium firm, so you can choose the support that works best for you.

My husband and I chose the medium soft mattress for our review. This mattress is designed to really hug your body when you lay on it, and it is so comfortable! I love getting into bed at the end of a long day. I’m falling asleep so much faster than I used to, and sleeping for longer periods of time. I wake up feeling refreshed, and my back pain is not nearly as bad as it had been. Sometimes I actually feel like I am just floating on air when I’m laying on this mattress. It really makes for a peaceful rest.

The medium firm mattress has a more solid sleeping surface, but doesn’t feel stiff. Both mattresses contain a mix of premium memory foam on top for comfort and wrapped coils for support. Tomorrow Sleep states that 70% of their customers prefer the medium firm mattress, but my husband and I really do love the medium soft.

2. FREE DELIVERY – Buying large items for our home has always been a challenge. We don’t have a truck, so we’ve had to try to find a friend who was available and willing to help us move our large and heavy purchases into our home for us, or pay incredibly high delivery fees to have the store deliver it.

I love that Tomorrow Sleep offers free delivery. My mattress was delivered right to my front door, rolled up in a box! The box was a bit heavy, so make sure you do have some help moving it into your bedroom.

3. EASY SETUP – Setting up the Tomorrow Sleep mattress could not be any easier! After I got the mattress out of the box and onto my box spring, I simply cut away the protective plastic with the tool they included. I unfolded the mattress, cut away the second layer of plastic and watched as my new mattress expanded in just a couple of minutes right before my very eyes.

Watching our new mattress expand was hands down one of the coolest things I have ever seen. My husband was absolutely floored that our new queen size mattress fit into such a small box. When we had the rolled up mattress laying on our bed before we took the plastic off, he actually said to me that he thought Tomorrow Sleep sent us the wrong size. He couldn’t believe that what he was looking at was going to cover our entire bed. Boy, was he surprised!

4. SLEEP SYSTEM – Tomorrow Sleep has created an entire sleep system designed to give you an amazing night of sleep every single night. In addition to the hybrid mattress, their sleep system includes memory foam pillows, plush pillows, a Sleeptracker® Monitor, a sheet set, comforter, a mattress protector and drapes.

We received two memory foam pillows along with our mattress, and they are by far the most comfortable and supportive pillows I have ever slept on. The memory foam pillow is designed with a two sided construction that feels cool on one side and cozy on the other. They are a pillow that you can really hug and sink your face into!

Tomorrow Sleep Memory Foam Pillow

Their plush pillow is designed for cushy comfort with hypoallergenic down alternative that feels fluffy while also providing great support.

This Low Carb Pumpkin Pudding is a great way to enjoy that delicious pumpkin flavor you love, while staying on your low carb diet! This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of In The Raw and SheSpeaks. All opinions are entirely my own.

Low Carb Pumpkin Pudding

Last year, my husband and I started our journey on a keto diet two weeks before Thanksgiving. Our whole family thought we were absolutely crazy, but we had made up our minds that we were going to follow through with it, and we did. We stayed on our keto diet for about 8 months and reached our goal weights. It felt amazing!

Now that we have reached our goal weights, we have loosened our belts up a little bit. We don’t eat completely low carb anymore, but we do try to make better food choices most of the time. I still love eating delicious keto snack foods like this low carb cheese board!

It was really quite difficult to give up my favorite foods for Thanksgiving last year. The food I missed the most was pumpkin pie. I mean, can you really have Thanksgiving dinner without a slice of pumpkin pie topped with whipped cream? It was so hard to resist the temptation!

I recently decided to do a little experiment to see if I could make a low carb dessert that tasted like pumpkin pie. I use cauliflower in place of high carb foods all the time, and I had recently seen a recipe floating around the internet for a Cinnamon Cauliflower Pudding, so I thought I would try making a Low Carb Pumpkin Pudding using cauliflower.

Low Carb Pumpkin Pudding

I know what you’re probably thinking… “cauliflower pudding? Won’t that be disgusting? Won’t that taste like cauliflower?” I’m in a lot of low carb groups on Facebook, and the number one complaint I hear is that most recipes made with cauliflower still taste like cauliflower. They don’t taste like whatever they are supposed to be mocking. I think that is because most people just don’t use enough seasoning to mask the cauliflower taste enough. Cauliflower does have a very strong, distinct flavor, so you have to really put some effort into seasoning it enough to hide that flavor.

Low Carb Pumpkin Pudding

This Low Carb Pumpkin Pudding does NOT taste like cauliflower. I loaded this recipe up with cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, cloves, ginger and Organic Stevia In The Raw®, and it did a wonderful job of hiding that cauliflower taste.

Low Carb Pumpkin Pudding

I made this Low Carb Pumpkin Pudding while my husband was at work, and when he came home, I asked him to taste it and let me know what he thought it tasted like. His response was “pumpkin”. He did not taste the cauliflower flavor at all, and believe me, he would have let me know if he did.

Low Carb Pumpkin Pudding

If you’re following a low carb diet this holiday season, try this Low Carb Pumpkin Pudding. It will give you the satisfaction of that delicious pumpkin pie flavor you are probably longing for, but help you stay on track! It’s absolutely delicious topped with whipped cream and chopped pecans.

LOW CARB PUMPKIN PUDDING

This recipe is super easy! All I did was stir a bunch of ingredients together in a pot and let it simmer on the stove for a half hour before blending it up in my food processor. It honestly can’t get much easier than that!

Low Carb Pumpkin Pudding

INGREDIENTS:

  • 10 oz. bag of frozen riced cauliflower
  • 15 oz. can of 100% pure pumpkin
  • 1 cup canned coconut milk
  • 2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 tsp. coarse salt
  • 1/4 tsp. ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp. ground cloves
  • 4 packets Organic Stevia in the Raw
  • 1/2 cup water

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Mix all ingredients together in a large saucepan. Let simmer over low heat for approximately 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Allow pudding to cool for 10 minutes, then transfer to food processor.
  3. Blend pudding in food processor until it reaches your desired consistency. I blended mine for approximately 5 minutes.

Jalapeno Zucchini Cheddar Scones

These Jalapeno Zucchini Cheddar Scones are a delicious savory scone you can enjoy any time of day!

It may be fall, but the weather here in Maine has been screaming “Summer’s not over yet!” this week. It actually got up to 90 degrees here yesterday, and my husband and I were completely regretting having already taken the air conditioner out of our bedroom when the temperature was still 81 degrees at 11pm last night.

Even with the hot temperatures we’ve been having, I cannot get rid of this baking bug that I have. My mind is saying “It’s fall! Bake all the things!!” So, I’ve been trying to get any baking I want to do done during the early morning hours before it gets too hot in the house. This post contains affiliate links.

Yesterday, I baked up the most delicious Jalapeno Zucchini Cheddar Scones. I have been craving a savory scone for what seems like forever, and I finally decided to make it happen.

Jalapeno Zucchini Cheddar Scones

We had a whole bunch of fresh jalapenos from our garden, and I took out some of the shredded garden zucchini that I had put in the freezer earlier this summer. I just love using up all of the delicious vegetables from our garden!

Jalapeno Zucchini Cheddar Scones

I know most people say scones taste best when fresh out of the oven, but I thought these Jalapeno Zucchini Cheddar Scones tasted even better as the day went on. They were so good, I ate three of them by myself!

Jalapeno Zucchini Cheddar Scones

INGREDIENTS:

3/4 cup packed shredded zucchini (drained very well)
1 large jalapeno (seeded and diced)
1 stick very cold butter
1 large egg
1/2 cup full fat sour cream
1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese, divided
2.5 cups all purpose flour
1.5 tablespoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. onion powder
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper and cayenne pepper.
  4. Use a grater to quickly grate the cold stick of butter into the flour mixture. For best results, place stick of butter in freezer for 10 minutes first. Cold butter makes the scones flaky!
  5. Quickly work the butter into the flour mixture with a fork until it resembles coarse meal.
  6. Beat the egg in a small bowl.
  7. Add sour cream to beaten egg and whisk to combine. Add egg and sour cream mixture to flour mixture and stir to combine.
  8. In a small bowl, combine zucchini, diced jalapeno, 3/4 cup of the sharp cheddar and 2 tablespoons of flour. Toss to coat. This will prevent all of the ingredients from sinking to the bottom of the dough.
  9. Fold zucchini mixture into flour mixture, until distributed evenly.
  10. Place the dough mixture onto a clean floured work surface and shape the dough into an 8 inch circle. You will have to knead it quite a bit to get it to come together.
  11. Cut the dough into 8 wedges and carefully transfer them to the prepared baking sheet.
  12. Sprinkle the top of each scone with a little of the remaining cheese.
  13. Bake for 22-24 minutes.

Old Fashioned Soft Pumpkin Cookies

You’ll love these old fashioned soft pumpkin cookies, just like Grandma made!

Old Fashioned Soft Pumpkin Cookies

It’s officially the first day of fall, and I am so excited! I have already been apple picking once this year, but my family is headed back to the orchard again tomorrow.

Our local orchard has so many activities going on all the time, that we visit a few times before the season is over. In addition to their bountiful supply of apples and pumpkins, they have squash and flowers available for picking. They also have an ice cream stand, fresh baked apple cider and pumpkin spice donuts, apple cider, goats that my kids just love to feed, chickens, rabbits, a bird cage, a sand box, hay rides, a corn maze and so much more! Tomorrow, they are having a performance from Timber Tina of the Great Maine Lumberjack Show!

The last time we went to the orchard, we picked a whole bunch of apples, and my daughter just had to bring home a million different pumpkins. This kid is going to have some serious fall decorating skills when she is older. She selected lots of different varieties, but I made sure we grabbed a couple that would be perfect for baking with.

The pumpkins we bought were so fresh that I could not even cut into them when we got home. They were just too darn hard! I had to let them sit for about 2 weeks before they were ready to be cut into. I really wanted to bake a pumpkin pie, but the kids insisted on baking cookies instead! I came up with these old fashioned soft pumpkin cookies, and they just loved them!

Old Fashioned Soft Pumpkin Cookies

My inspiration for these cookies was my grandmother. She passed away last year, and I often think of her when I am baking. She was the most amazing baker, and what I loved most about her baked goods was how simple, yet flavorful they were. She was all about baking soft, very plain looking cookies that tasted wonderful. I love cookies that are not overly fancy or sweet, and these old fashioned soft pumpkin cookies really fit that bill. They have just a subtle pumpkin flavor that’s perfect for fall! This post contains affiliate links. I may earn a commission if you make a purchase after clicking a link in this post. 

Farberware Insulated Nonstick Bakeware 15-1/2-Inch x 20-Inch Jumbo Cookie SheetFarberware Insulated Nonstick Bakeware 15-1/2-Inch x 20-Inch Jumbo Cookie SheetThis Farberware Insulated Nonstick Bakeware Jumbo Cookie Sheet is THE BEST cookie sheet I have ever owned. I have had mine for over 10 years! I use it every single time I bake cookies, which is quite often, and it’s still in awesome condition.

I love this cookie sheet for several different reasons. For starters, this cookie sheet is HUGE. When they say “Jumbo”, they are not exaggerating. If you bake cookies often, this will save you lots of time because you can bake a lot of cookies all at once on this cookie sheet.

This cookie sheet is non-stick, which is just awesome. The cookies slide right off after they are done baking.

My cookies always bake up very evenly on this cookie sheet, and I love that it only has one lip on it. It makes it really easy to grab it out of the oven without smushing any of the cookies, and the cookies just slide right off the side of the cookie sheet.

This cookie sheet is super easy to clean! The cookies slide right off this cookie sheet, so there is pretty much zero clean up. I just wipe it down quickly with a wet cloth, and it’s good to go!

I’ve been baking cookies for many years, and these 6 kitchen tools are my absolute favorite for baking cookies. They make it so much faster and easier to bake up a whole bunch of cookies, and I would highly recommend them to anyone who loves to bake cookies.

I hope you enjoy these old fashioned soft pumpkin cookies as much as my family does!

Check out these super fun and easy Halloween treats kids will love!

Halloween is just around the corner, and my kids are already so excited to dress up in their costumes. Kayleigh wants to be Elsa this year, and Logan wants to be Spiderman.

Last year we found this one really long street in our city that was decked out like crazy. Almost every house was decorated with the finest Halloween decorations and there was plenty of candy to be found. My kids are still really little, so it’s nice to be able to just walk up and down one street, instead of having to travel all over the place with them to find Halloween candy.

We love to do all sorts of fun things leading up to the actual Halloween holiday. We watch family friendly Halloween movies, go to some trunk or treat events and I also like to make easy Halloween treats kids will go crazy over. This post contains affiliate links.

Thanks to Hannaford for sponsoring this Turkey, Cheddar & Apple Crescent Roll recipe post. All opinions are 100% my own.

Back to school season is in full swing, and with the holidays just around the corner, now is a perfect time for busy parents to find quick and easy dinner ideas that are affordable too.

Hannaford’s everyday low prices and quality brands can help save both time and money. With their wide selection of Hannaford brand products, it’s easy to create a fun and delicious meal that the whole family will love, even if you are on a tight budget.

I know I’m going to be very busy over the next few months, so I recently stocked up on a large assortment of Hannaford brand products. To make things even easier, I used their to-go service (available at select Hannaford locations) and was able to place my order online and pick my groceries up without even leaving my car! As a Mom of two kids, this is such a huge time-saver for me.

One of my family’s favorite meals starts with Hannaford brand crescent rolls, so I purchased quite a few packages of them. I love how quick and easy they are to bake (ready in just 11-13 minutes!) and how versatile they are. You can stuff these crescent rolls with pretty much anything your heart desires before baking them, to create something absolutely wonderful!

Hannaford Brand Crescent Rolls

For tonight’s dinner, I filled the crescent rolls with thin sliced roasted turkey breast, shredded cheddar cheese and thin apple slices. After they were done baking, I paired our tasty crescent rolls with a delicious honey mustard dipping sauce. The flavors all worked together so wonderfully, and my family really enjoyed them.

This Turkey, Cheddar & Apple Crescent Roll recipe is super affordable because I used Hannaford brand ingredients! As you can see, they are fresh, high quality products.
