NESCAFE Clasico Affogato – the Perfect Summer Pick Me Up

by Jennifer Wieland
NESCAFE Clasico Affogato


 

Summer is here! School is out and I am already wondering how much longer until school is back in session. I love my babies, don’t get me wrong but trying to work from home while entertaining the troops can try even the most patient of souls. That’s why getting together at night or on the weekends with friends for a mommy break is so important. I’m going to share with you my five favorite mommy break activities and how to make NESCAFE Clasico Affogato, the perfect summer pick me up.

Stepping away from work, family, home and everyday stresses is important for moms. You need that balance so that you feel more than just a wife, mom, employee, volunteer, housekeeper or whatever else takes up your days.

Top 5 Mommy Break Activities

Spa Time

You take care of everyone all week-long. Taking time to pamper yourself with your girlfriends is a great way to indulge while unwinding with your besties. Whether it’s a full on spa day or a simple mani/pedi it will go a long way to restoring you.

Shopping

This one is tricky. As a mom it’s so hard to shop for just you. To walk into a mall and say, ‘This is just me today and not the house, the kids or the hubby.” Take the time to focus on you and enjoy shopping with your girls who will be honest about how you look in the clothing you try on. Plus, get yourself a cute outfit, some sexy new shoes or some lingerie and your spouse will definitely be willing to let you to slip out with treats like that to show off.

Lunch or Dinner

I know this one seems a little odd. I mean you can just go out to eat with your family any old day of the week. What makes it different with your buddies is that they are in the same boat as you most likely. They want a break, the kids are driving them nuts, they want to rant about whatever annoying thing their husband is doing… You get the idea. You get to be you and just you, not mommy or wifey all while enjoying some good food. Added bonus, you get to head to that fancy little bistro or dessert bar that your hubby has no interest in going to dine at.

Movies

Sometimes you don’t need to talk to have a good time with your friends or to unwind. Sometimes you just want to sit in the dark, eat junk food, and watch a sappy. chick flick with someone who will totally appreciate it as much as you do. 

Hit the Gym

The gym? Say what? I know that’s what you were thinking. The gym is a great way to unwind. Working up a sweat while exercising is not only great for your body but also your mental well-being. Add in talking to your bestie (a.k.a. your personal psychiatrist) and you will definitely be felling like yourself again when it’s over.

The important thing in all of this is finding what works for you and your friends to help restore a bit of the sanity that the summer, schools out insanity creates. 

NESCAFE Clasico Affogato

If you don’t have time for a full outing invite your friends over to hangout and enjoy a cold, caffeine pick me up. NESCAFE Clasico Affogato is the perfect mommy treat!

NESCAFE Clasico Affogato

It’s a great combination of rich, cold, delicious vanilla ice cream and the mommy drink of survival, coffee.

How to Make Irish Car Bomb Pudding Shots

by Jennifer Wieland
How to Make Irish Car Bomb Pudding Shots

The Irish are known for their aptitude in drinking but even some of us with some Irish blood flowing through our veins are what is commonly referred to as a lightweight when it comes to drinking. I fully own that I am a fruity, girly drinking mess. Shots of whiskey… No thanks, I’ll pass. A pint of Guinness Beer? Are you out of your mind? Something with booze that doesn’t seem like booze? Now, my curiosity is peaked. So how about some Irish Car Bomb Pudding Shots? Oh yeah! Now that’s my speed.

How to Make Irish Car Bomb Pudding Shots

Jello shots have been around for quite a long time now and are always wildly popular at parties! They always add some fun and tasty whimsy to a party. Now imagine that with pudding instead and needing a spoon to eat a creamy treat that is packed full of some kick. 

How to Make Irish Car Bomb Pudding Shots

These Irish Car Bomb Pudding Shots are easy to make, have two different puddings, three types of booze and chocolate sauce to really make these the talk of your get together. 

How to Make Irish Car Bomb Pudding Shots

Taking my cue from my Irish Car Bomb Cupcakes I decided to use the same flavors and make them mini and delicious for some St. Patrick’s Day fun. The plays of alcohol, chocolate and vanilla really makes for a tasty treat that packs quite the little punch.

Avengers: Age of Ultron Vision’s Protein Power Smoothie

It’s a big week in our house! We are very excitedly gearing up for the October 2nd Blu-Ray/DVD release of Avengers: Age of UltronThat’s right, we are a family that lets our Marvel comics geek flag fly, and fly high. Luckily, I was born to a father who knew how to raise a child right. He routinely took us to the comic book store and shared his collection with us. Now I get to share the same thing with my kids. 

Avengers: Age of Ultron Vision's Protein Power Smoothie

In honor of the upcoming October 2nd Blu-Ray/DVD release of Avengers: Age of Ultron I decided that we needed to get some movie snacks in place and costumes to wear that were worthy of the greatness of the movie. Enter my edible Thor hammers and the Vision’s Protein Power Smoothie. Good for you snacks that are better than candy any day. 

So to make all of this happen I headed to my local Walmart store and stocked up on MARVEL Avengers string cheese, MARVEL Avengers grapes and MARVEL chewy granola bars in the grocery section.

Avengers: Age of Ultron Vision's Protein Power Smoothie

Then I took a walk to the other side of the store and snagged the kids some fun Halloween costumes to wear on family movie night this weekend.That’s right, be jealous because I will be watching my Blu-ray copy of Avengers: Age of Ultron with not only the Hulk but Thor  and Captain America too. 

Avengers: Age of Ultron Vision's Protein Power Smoothie

If any of you have seen the Avengers: Age of Ultron movie at the theaters then you know that Vision can do something that nobody but Thor can do. That’s why I decided to pair Thor’s hammer in snack form with a power packed protein smoothie that kids will love!

Avengers: Age of Ultron Vision's Protein Power Smoothie

To make the hammers I simply paired Marvel Avengers chewy granola bars with MARVEL Avengers string cheese. Placing a toothpick through the middle, lengthwise of the string cheese and then through the narrow end of a granola bar half is all you need to make these everyday snacks into something fun.

The smoothies are packed with flavors kids love with an added bump of protein to keep their energy going so they can be superheroes too.

Avengers: Age of Ultron Vision's Protein Power Smoothie

So what do the movie snacks look like finished? Well, take a look…

The Best K-Cup Flavors for Making Iced Tea and Juice Slushies

by Jennifer Wieland
#BrewOverIce #BrewItUp #shop #cbias

This shop has been compensated by #CollectiveBias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone.

I bet some of you didn’t know that Keurigs aren’t just for a nice hot cup of coffee in the morning anymore did you? I for one love my Keurig but use it for all sorts of different drinks than what you would normally think to use your Keurig and favorite K-Cups to make. So let me share with you what the best K-Cup flavors for making iced tea and juice slushies are and why these were perfect for me and my family this weekend.

A couple of weeks ago while out shopping I came across a metal swing set that had been marked down to only $60 which was a steal! As soon as I saw it I knew I needed to buy it for my 5, 7 and 10 year olds. They love going to the park and I take them a lot but there are some days where I just can’t take them because I need to get stuff done at the house or I need to work. I figured this would be a great way that they could still play and get some fresh air but I could stick close to home and do things here. Now, as I said this was a couple of weeks ago. The big, giant box was still sitting under my balcony just waiting to be opened up. I came home on Saturday from picking up a piece of furniture I bought and spotted the box and in that moment I knew I was not going to wait for any of the men folk here to get around to putting it together and I was not going to listen the little ones nag about when the assembly was going to happen. Nope, I was going to do this! I was all I am woman hear me roar in that moment!

#BrewOverIce #BrewItUp #shop #cbias

The swing set that started it all.

So I quietly snuck out of the house while the hubs and the kids were preoccupied and toolbox in hand set about putting it together. It started out well enough, that is until I realized that I was going to need another set of hands to help me get the side legs attached but I was being bull-headed and decided to ask one of the kids to help. Needless to say that was the trigger that started what would become one of the longest most headache inducing days of my life!

All of the kids that were home came outside to see what was happening and all promptly decided they wanted to “help”. I should have stopped at that moment but I didn’t. Instead I forged on only to have my daughter come running through and knock down what we were trying to assemble and guess who stood under everything? Yup, that’s right. It was me. After some poor language choices, some ice and bandages the hubs came out and helped me get the legs on. I sent him back in though because I wanted to finish this alone. That didn’t happen though. The kids came out more and lost several screws and bolts necessitating a run to the hardware store. I did manage to get it done though.

When I was finished I was dirty, sweaty, more than likely smelly and I was hot and thirsty with a headache to boot. I decided I needed a cold drink and the kids wanted one too. I decided to make some Lemonberry Slushies for the kids and a Snapple Lemon Tea Slushie for me. They were perfect! Nice, cold and refreshing and so needed after all those hours of hard work.

I love my Keurig! I have what I refer to as the baby model but it serves its purpose and sadly I don’t have the room for a big one. Since I am not a coffee drinker I am always brewing the many varieties of Brew Over Ice K-Cups. You can get a ton of different iced teas, vitamin drinks and even juice. With all of those options your Keurig will become a very handy beverage tool to have in your arsenal.

Best K-Cup Flavors #BrewOverIce #BrewItUp #shop #cbias

Luckily for my family I had gone to Walmart earlier that morning and had purchased some Snapple Lemon Iced Tea and Green Mountain Naturals Lemonade K-Cups. With those on hand I was able to quickly and easily make some refreshing slushies for the whole family.

Walmart K-Cup Selection #BrewOverIce #BrewItUp #shop #cbias

I set to work brewing some Snapple Lemon Iced Tea and Green Mountain Naturals Lemonade in preparation of making slushies.

If you have never used a Keurig for the Brew Over Ice K-Cups then I would recommend watching this “how-to” video to make the best possible drink you can. For best brewing though all Brew Over Ice products should be brewed at the 6 oz. (small) or 8 oz. (medium) settings.

 

  Now on to making the two different slushies…

K-Cup Slushies #BrewOverIce #BrewItUp #shop #cbias

Note my haggard appearance and just general look of exhaustion.

I made all of the kids their slushies first and by the time I made mine and had a chance to sit down and take a break it was dark out but the slushie sure helped me to relax after a very long day of trying to be an awesome mom. 

 


Southern Comfort Cocktail a Real Crowd Pleaser

by Jennifer Wieland
Southern Comfort Cocktail #YoungAndHungry

 

 

 

 

ABC Family's Young & Hungry Food Blogger Challenge

On Sunday, Father’s Day, we received our second challenge in the Young & Hungry Food Bloggers Challenge. We needed to make a video for a recipe inspired by a dad in our lives. I was a little late in getting mine up and entered for voting but that’s because I was on vacation with the two most important dads in my life, my father and my husband. We did a huge family vacation at my parent’s vacation house in Wisconsin Dells with my parents, siblings and our kids. It was nice having everyone together. My dad took all the guys out for drinks to celebrate Father’s Day and that is what gave me the idea for Challenge #2 and I am so happy with the inspiration because it lead me to create this Southern Comfort Cocktail.

Southern Comfort Cocktail #YoungAndHungry

On our way home from Wisconsin we stopped at a large strawberry farm and took the kids strawberry picking so I had a huge heap of fresh, sweet and tasty strawberries. I knew these would be perfect to add into my cocktail. I also wanted to make it a bit citrusy so that it gave you the feel of a nice cool refreshing drink on a hot day but with a kick to it. I decided to go with Southern Comfort as the alcohol to the cocktail because my husband is a whiskey fan but my dad drinks only when we all get together so he can be a bit of a light weight. Southern Comfort is perfect since it is a whiskey based liqueur. All in all I love the way it came out. The fruit and juices help to cut the whiskey flavor some but there is enough whiskey for the drink to pack a punch. I also like that you can make this drink by the pitcher to share with your family and friends at your next get together.

In “Young & Hungry,” two worlds collide when Josh (Jonathan Sadowski Sadowski), a wealthy young tech entrepreneur, meets Gabi (Emily Osment), a feisty young food blogger, looking to be his personal chef. Gabi is desperate for the job and must prove herself, mostly to Josh’s aide ( Rex Lee), who prefers a famous chef for the job. When Josh enlists Gabi to prepare a romantic meal for him and his girlfriend, the dinner goes awry and Gabi finds herself in a very awkward position. With the help of her best friend Sofia (Aimee Carrero) and Josh’s housekeeper (Kym Whitley), Gabi turns a difficult situation into an opportunity for employment and maybe even love.

Young & Hungry stars Emily Osment (Hannah Montana), Jonathan Sadowski ($#*! My Dad Says), Rex Lee (“Entourage”), Aimee Carrero (“Blue Lagoon: The Awakening”) and Kym Whitley (“Animal Practice”) with Annie Potts (“GCB,” “Designing Women”) as a recurring guest star.

Mommy Time-Out with Bigelow Tea Peach Teallini

by Jennifer Wieland
Mommy Time-Out: Bigelow Tea Peach Teallini #AmericasTea #shop

I am a member of the Collective Bias®  Social Fabric® Community.  This shop has been compensated as part of a social shopper amplification for Collective Bias and its advertiser.

Mom’s are usually the heart and soul of their families and homes. They place themselves last and everyone else ahead of themselves to ensure that everyone else is taken care of properly. They do this gladly and wouldn’t want it any other way but, every so often every mom needs a mommy time-out. It may be a little break daily or weekly but all mom’s need a little me time to recharge and remember that they deserve to be a priority too. My favorite mommy time-out starts with a trip to Walmart and buying some Bigelow Tea (third generation, American owned company) in one of my absolute favorite flavors. Being a huge tea drinker (hot, cold, sweetened, unsweetened, herbal, black, white, or green) I always like to keep my tea supply ready to go and Bigelow Tea is perfect for that. Their tea comes in individually foil wrapped pouches to keep the tea fresh.

Mommy Time-Out: Bigelow Tea Peach Teallini #AmericasTea  #shop

For me, my mommy time-out doesn’t come at night, no sir-e. It would be nice if it did but my kids range in age and some may be up late and my husband is a night owl. Now, I could maybe squeeze in me time while my youngest is at school for two hours but errands sans children usually wins out. No, for me my mommy time-out comes on Saturday or Sunday morning.. The kids and the husband sleep in but I am still up at my regular time so I grab my reading device, my phone for music, make myself breakfast and serve myself a Bigelow Tea Peach Teallini. I get to enjoy my breakfast while sipping my Peach Teallini in peace and quiet, listening to music I like and reading a good book without being interrupted every 5 seconds or eating long after everyone else. It is my time to rest, relax and recharge from everything life has thrown at me throughout the week.

  2. Finely chop the peaches and strawberries. Place 1 tbsp. of the fruit into a champagne flute. Pour 1/4 c, of the cooled peach tea over the fruit and then top off with 1/2 c. of Prosecco.
Notes
  1. I used frozen fruit. It works perfectly for cocktails. If you leave it partially frozen it will also keep the drink chilled longer.

Pineapple & Lime Ice Cream Sodas

St. Patrick’s Day is a holiday that is known for its drinks, adult drinks that is. So while the adults are getting tipsy celebrating St.Patrick’s Day to the fullest extent why not make a drink for the kids so they can partake of the festivities too? I remember as a kid every time we went out to a restaurant that my parents would let us order Kiddie Cocktails (a.k.a. Shirley Temples) and we just loved them! We always felt like we were so grown up with our sophisticated drinks in hand complete with fancy toothpick with cherries and sometimes an orange wedge on it. Continuing with that idea, my mom and grandma would always make a big punch bowl full of some sherbert punch drink just for the kids at family get-togethers. Fast forward to me and I have continued this tradition with my own kids right up to yesterday afternoon with a new one.

Yesterday we woke up to another bout of ice and snow and after being stuck half in the driveway and half out in the street for almost an hour my hubby decided to brave the streets and walk to the train and I just decided to keep the kids home from school. Since the kids and I were confined to the house I decided to make them an early St. Patrick’s Day treat. I made them very green, very yummy, Pineapple & Lime Ice Cream Sodas. These were a yummy sweet drink and the kids really loved how green they were, particularly my 6-year-old whose favorite color is green.

Now, while the green color does lend itself to St. Patrick’s Day, this can certainly be made for birthday parties, Easter, Christmas or for any old reason during the hot summer months.

Ingredients
  1. 1 packet Lemon-Lime Kool-Aid
  2. 1 ltr. Green River Soda
  3. 4 c. pineapple juice
  4. 1 tub of lime sherbert
  5. 1 tub of pineapple sherbert
Instructions
  1. In a large pitcher combine the Kool-Aid packet, Green River and pineapple juice. Stir to combine. In tall glasses scoop 1-2 scoops of each flavor into each glass and then pour enough liquid over the top to reach the top of the glass. Serve and enjoy.
Notes
  1. This can also be made in a punch bowl. You would just combine all of the liquid ingredients in the bowl and then scoop the sherbert into the punch bowl. As it melts you will get a foamy top to the punch.
  2. For those of you wondering what Green River is it is a lime soda. It is a very, very green soda and you can substitute a lemon-lime soda for it if you can't get any.
