I was looking for sweet dessert recipes to make my family that would be quick and easy to make.

To make things easy on myself, I sometimes rely on ready made ingredients.

 Nestle Crunch blog image

What I decided to make was  a Peanut Butter Creme trifle using the new “limited time only” Nestle Crunch Girls Scout Bars available at Walmart.

The bars come in Peanut Butter Creme, Thin Mints and Caramel & Coconut.

The bars I bought (see my shopping trip) came in individually wrapped fun size which I took the liberty of taste testing before making the trifles.

To make this recipe I used.

  • Nestle Crunch Girl Scout Bars (Thin Mint and Peanut Butter Creme)

  • whipped topping

  • pudding cups (vanilla and chocolate)

  • Fudge striped Shortbread cookies

  • pound cake

Peanut Butter Creme and Thin Mint Trifles

1. I crushed about 1/2 the pack of cookies by adding them to a zip lock bag and crushing them into small pieces using a mallet.

2. I coarsely chopped the pound cake into chunks and the Nestle Crunch bar into small pieces.

3. For the bottom layer of the trifle I added cookie crumbs. Next I added a layer of pudding, then a layer of cake, then whipped topping and the Nestle Crunch Girl Scout bar crumbles.

This recipe is too easy for you not to try, but if you want to use the Nestle Crunch Girl Scout bars you’ll need to go grab a few boxes at Walmart before they are gone.

DIY Confetti Face Wipes Dispenser for my nighttime clean routine

DIY Confetti Face Wipes Dispenser

Cbias Disclosure

As you already know, I’ve been working on a master bathroom makeover because it had become dated.

For me having a bathroom that makes me feel good when in it helps me stay on top of my daily beauty care routine so I teamed up with Cottonelle and Target to take you on a tour of my new master bath and share a really quick DIY using the NEW Cottonelle wet wipe dispenser.

I started this bathroom makeover by installing floating bathroom shelves and later painting the laminate floor. The biggest part of this makeover was the shelves. This bathroom has a vanity sink and no hidden storage what-so-ever.

Installing the shelves gave me more space to store things like extra tissue, beauty products, soap, towels and washcloths.

The primary color of my master bath is called “February Gold” by Colorplace. It’s a yellow gold hue which is in my bath mats and in today’s project.

The Cottonelle dispenser looks perfect as is in it’s white container but I wanted to dress mine up a bit by using gold vinyl stickers I ordered off etsy.

I used a variety of sizes and just stuck them on until I created a pattern I liked.

My plan was to keep it in my master bath but I moved it to my nightstand table to use in step 5 of my nighttime clean routine.

I hate to go to bed with make up on especially since my sheets and comforter are white. Brown foundation and white bedding do not match.

So my cute Cottonelle dispenser sits on my nightstand table along with my jewelry tray and water bottle.

These are my night time essentials and adding the Cottonelle wipes to my table makes it easy for me to wipe my face at night.

Rite-Aid Tugaboos Diapers | A New Alternative

tugaboos 2

“This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Rite Aid Tugaboos diapers.  All opinions expressed are my own and I only promote campaigns that support the mission of AProverbsWife.com. To learn more about how I choose which companies to partner with please see my disclosure“.

This week I was given the opportunity to test out Rite Aid’s new line of Tugaboos diapers. I’ve never used Tugaboos but learned they range in price from $6.47- $10.49 at Rite Aid.

I’m not opposed to using store brand diapers and was a store brand diaper momma from day one. From time to time by baby will wear  national brand diapers but those typically come from his grandparents.

As a frugal young family who does not buy national brand diapers we still want a lost but high quality product. When I read up on the great features that Tugaboos offers I decided to give them a try.

Rite Aid Tugaboos diapers have recently been improved for added leakage protection and faster absorption. Some of the key features of Tugaboos diapers include:

  • Soft stretchable waist & side panels

  • Excellent leakage protection

  • Hypoallergenic inner liner

  • Cottony soft feel

I was so excited to receive the Tugaboos diapers. Who doesn’t love freebies? Coincidentally I received my sample pack the day my baby ran out of diapers. Lucky me!

I think the Tugaboos diapers are a pretty good store brand diaper for my baby and here’s why:

  •  They held up pretty good overnight and I haven’t had to change my baby’s diaper once all night.

  • I haven’t had any leaks out of the diapers at all.

  • The adhesive tabs on the diaper are strong enough to stay put when my son tugs on them.

  • They are better than most store brand diapers that I have tried.

Here are the things that I wasn’t to fond of:

  •  The diapers are on the thin side.

  • The price is higher than the store brand diapers that I typically buy.

5 Tips for Healthy Feet & OOFOS Shoe #Giveaway!!

20130416-121745.jpg

With Spring here and Summer fast approaching, we need to discuss an important topic….our FEET.  Did you know that your feet are the least important body part you think about? 

OOFOS

If you’re like the vast majority of us, you are consumed with your daily schedule.  It’s hard to focus on your feet. 

But your two little tootsies are pretty important.  Your feet absorb your full body weight and keep you supported throughout the day.  They are made up of 26 bones a complex framework of muscles, tendons and ligaments. 

They need love too!  I started having problems with my feet when I had to wear heels to work on a daily basis.  Man, those beautiful shoes tore my feet up. 

Whenever I stepped out of the heels, I easily grabbed my flip flops… and of course wondered why my feet hurt so bad.  I learned the importance of good healthy foot care and wearing shoes that support your feet. 

Some common problems people encounter are:

  1. Foot odor

  2. Cracked skin

  3. Aching arches or fallen arches

  4. Ingrown toenails (ouch!)

  5. Athlete’s foot

That’s enough to sending someone packing there. We probably all deal with 1 or 2 of the above. 

OOFOS

Here is 5 things you can do to take care of your feet.

  1. Wear comfortable shoes

  2. Take a walk (exercise those feet)

  3. Wash your feet daily (they are trapped in shoes all day.. think sweat & moisture)

  4. Moisturize (cocoa butter is the best)

  5. Wear socks (they protect your feet and absorb moisture)

Now we touched on foot hygiene, let’s talk about some comfy shoes!  I was selected to give a product review on OOFOS

I was very skeptical on reviewing these because quite frankly I have wide feet and shoe shopping is not pleasant for me.  

Here is a picture of the shoes I chose.

IMG_2068

I chose these because I need new flip flops to wear.  Normally, I wear a size 8 1/2 but decided to go with a 9 because usually an 8 is too small.  These were a little big for me.  They fit my friend perfectly.

OOFOS

We both agreed these felt like heaven on our feet! They have cushion in all the right places.  Granted, my left foot hurt at the end of the day, but that was because of the way I landed.

Overall, these were the best flip flops I have found in a long time!!  As you can see above, they have a lot of cushion. Everyone complimented me on them as well.

OOFOS come in  3 styles and 3 colors to chose from. Here’s an image of the ones Saidah  and her husband chose.

20130416-121851.jpg

20130416-121904.jpg

Now we don’t want you to just take our word for it. We want you to have a pair of OOFOS yourself.

Thanks to OOFOS  (1)  A Proverbs Wife reader will win a pair of their choice!

Each giveaway winner will receive a pair of OOFOS worth up to $49.95 in value.

“SunChips® Recipe Inspiration

SunChips Sweet & Spicy BBQ Basket

Could you use some new family friendly and unique recipe ideas?

I had the opportunity this month to try a variety of SunChips flavors and also get familiar with some of the ways they incorporate their delicious snacks into recipes suitable for any meal of the day.

I was so inspired by these crunchy waves of whole-grain goodness that I created two recipes of my own to share with you using SunChips in my ingredients.

I came up with two recipes that can both be created and eaten in the same day. The first recipe is a twist on fried chicken tenders. I love fried chicken tenders, but don’t eat them very often because it’s just not a healthy food choice for my lifestyle. So, instead of deep frying the tenders I decided to create oven fried chicken tenders using SunChips newest flavor Sweet & Spicy BBQ — as my coating.

SunChips® Sweet & Spicy BBQ flavored multigrain snacks have a bold, flavorful taste, which really makes these chicken tenders unique.

 

SunChips Recipe Inspiration

Oven Fried SunChips® Sweet & Spicy BBQ Chicken Tenders

Ingredients

  • 10 1/2 oz bag of SunChips® SWEET & SPICY BBQ flavored multigrain snacks
  • 5 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/8 cup of water
  • salt and pepper (to taste)
  • 1 packet of Goya Sazon
  • non-stick cooking spray

SunChips Recipe Inspiration

Instructions

1. Rinse the chicken and then pat dry with a paper towel

2. Cut chicken breasts into 1-inch thick strips

3. Season with salt and pepper

4. In a separate bowl, combine the 2 eggs, water, and Goya Sazon

5. Put the entire bag of SunChips in a gallon sized storage bag, and crush them with a something
heavy such as a rubber mallet

6. Dip chicken pieces into egg mixture and then into the SunChips SWEET & SPICY BBQ
crumb coating

7. Place chicken in a single layer on a baking sheet sprayed with non-stick cooking spray

8. Bake chicken at 375° for 20 minutes. Turn chicken tenders on the opposite side and bake an
additional 20 minutes.

Serves: 6

 

SunChips Recipe Inspiration - Sweet & Salty Smore's

SunChips® Sweet & Salty S’mores

For the second recipe, I created a fun dessert which is a twist on the classic S’mores. Instead of
using graham crackers I substituted SunChip regular multigrain snacks to still give it that crunch,
while adding a unique flavor.

The end result was a perfect mix of sweet, salty and gooey marshmallowy goodness.

Ingredients

• 1 bag of SunChips® Original multigrain snacks

• Milk chocolate squares

• Mini marshmallows

Instructions

1. On a plate, arrange a single layer of SunChips Original multigrain snacks

2. Top each SunChip with a whole or half a square of milk chocolate and 1-2 marshmallows
(depending on your preference)

3. Microwave on high until chocolate and marshmallow melt (approximately 30 seconds)

Enjoy now or later!

Kids These Days Need Godly Parents

fruit

It’s the Christmas holiday which means the kids are out of school for many of us. I am thoroughly enjoying my children and using this time to grow in character.

I’m focusing on patiently mothering them and speaking in a tone that builds them up and motivates them to do better.

This type of parenting is not for the faint of heart nor does it guarantee that you will raise God fearing, Bible believing children.

What it does promise is that YOU will become disciplined and produce the results only time in Gods presence accomplishes.

Some of the results I’m looking to produce are love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, and temperance.

I gave my kids valuable gifts this holiday season but the most valuable gifts I want to give them is a mommy who demonstrates Godly character when parenting them.

I want them to see me being;

  • loving
  • full of joy
  • at peace and not out of control
  • patient with their immaturity
  • gentle when correcting them
  • faithful that God has a great plan for them
  • meek (humble, teachable, willing to be molded by Gods word)
  • temperate and not angry or frustrated with them

This is what I will be working on for the remainder of this Christmas holiday and I invite you to join me.

If you would like me to pray for you to grow in these areas over the next few days, just leave me a comment below.

This week’s post is sponsored by VerizonWireless. Be sure to check out the short video discussing kids these days featuring comedian Kevin Hart.
