Julieann Caramels Product Review // Tried and Tasty
I was recently asked to try JulieAnn Caramels on behalf of YourFreeTree.com. My first thought was, caramels are caramels right? I’m sure they will taste just like any other I’ve tasted before. So I waited for them to come in the mail, and when they arrived I was pleasantly surprised at the most adorable packaging!

I mean just look at it, wouldn’t that make the most adorable Mother’s Day Gift?? I’m a sucker for presentation and I’d definitely say they NAILED IT! I almost didn’t want to open it because it was so pretty. Well. But then I looked inside and saw all of the mouth watering flavors and knew I couldn’t wait another second before diving right in. 

Cobb Salad Tacos // Tried and TastyDo you have leftover ham from your Easter meal? How about boiled eggs? I’m sure you’ve got so many boiled eggs you don’t know what to do with yourself (I hope you tried my Oven Baked Hard Boiled Eggs because they are SO easy!). Of course, you could always make my Creamy Greek Yogurt Egg Salad Recipe, or Healthy Avocado & Egg Salad Sandwiches, but how about something different? What about tacos? I know, you are probably thinking to yourself: tacos? How am I going to use leftover ham and boiled eggs in tacos? Well I’ve got the answer for you!

Cobb Salad Tacos // Tried and Tasty

If you like a good ole traditional cobb salad, you are going to love this portable version. Who doesn’t love just wrapping up a good hearty taco? This will take your cobb salad to a whole new level. For me, any time I get to use my favorite Food For Life Sprouted Corn Tortillas is a good time. Not only are they healthy, but they are also delicious! By spouting, many of the key nutrients are released and is more easily digestible. I find mine at my local health food store (where I also buy many of the other Food For Life products). I’m so happy to have another great way to use up some leftovers. You better believe I’ll be having these a few times this week! Hope you’ll give them a try, they are quick, easy, and delicious!

Creamy Vanilla Whipped Cream Cheese Frosting // Tried and Tasty

Do you ever feel like it’s the frosting that just makes the cake or cupcake? I certainly do. Either I scrape it all off because it’s just not good enough, or a can’t get enough of it. This Creamy Vanilla Whipped Cream Cheese Frosting is one of those that I just can’t get enough of. It’s so light and airy, it’s almost like you’re eating a cloud. The vanilla is a subtle surprise that is the perfect amount of flavor. Of course cream cheese always makes frosting better if you ask me (check out my Cream Cheese Frosting recipe)! 

Creamy Vanilla Whipped Cream Cheese Frosting // Tried and Tasty

I’ve been wanting to make an Easter treat and wasn’t sure which direction I wanted to go. Cupcakes have kinda been my thing lately. Between my Lemon Curd Filled Cupcakes with Lemon Buttercream Frosting and The Best Vanilla Cupcake Recipe with Vanilla Buttercream Frosting I felt like it was time to change things up a bit. While I love buttercream, a nice light and creamy frosting was screaming my name. With vanilla pudding as the secret ingredient I was excited to whip this up and knew it would be perfect atop a light and moist white cake cupcake!

What’s the one kitchen appliance I couldn’t live without? That’s easy: my KitchenAid Mixer! I’ve had my mixer for years and use it quite frequently to whip up a batch of my All-Time Favorite Chocolate Chip Cookies,  my Whole Wheat Banana Bread, or a pan of Toffee & Chocolate Chip Brownies (which happens to be my favorite brownie recipe!). Whatever the recipe, I’ll pull my mixer out in a heartbeat! Makes each job so much simpler. You’ll even see that my KitchenAid mixer is the star of my most recent food month video: Lightened-Up Chicken Marsala. But enough about why I like this machine, how about a reason for you to like it? You’ve got the chance to WIN an artisan 5 quart mixer!

Guess what?! I’ve teamed up with a few of my favorite blog buddies to bring ONE amazing giveaway!
