Leftover Mashed Potato Pizza Crust

A great idea to use leftover mashed potatoes, is to turn them into a fantastic pizza crust! This past Thanksgiving, we had a plethora of leftover potatoes so I had the idea to make a pizza. I came across this Potato Crust Pizza recipe from Home Cooking Adventure. It looked easy enough so I decided to give it a try. To make this crust, you need the following ingredients:

1 Egg
Flour as Needed
2 TBS of Vegetable Oil
3 Cups of Mashed Potatoes 
1/2 Cup of Shredded Cheese (Your Choice)
Salt + Ground Pepper + Any other seasonings you may like

Preheat oven to 425 Degrees Fahrenheit 
Mix all of the ingredients together, whisking egg first. Add in the flour as it is needed, to help thicken dough. Once everything is well mixed, you can begin to spread out the potato mixture on a greased cookie sheet. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until it has a nice golden brown tint to it. 

Once it looks complete, begin placing your pizza toppings on! I used BBQ Sauce, pepperoni, ham, and Pepper-jack Cheese on mine. It was delicious! I couldn't believe how well potatoes made a pizza crust. Definitely a recipe to keep on hand when you have an excessive amount of potatoes!

Stomach Settle Nausea Relief Drops by UpSpring

Disclaimer: I received the following product(s) in exchange for my review. All opinions my own. 

   If you often experience upset stomach, nausea, gas, and/or motion sickness, these 4-in-1 Stomach Settle drops by UpSpring are just what you need to feel better. They contain the top four proven natural remedies for upset stomachs: 

Ginger, Spearmint, Lemon, and B6

   Ginger contains anti-inflammatory properties to help alleviate stomach pain and relax the muscles, Spearmint calms and soothes those muscles, Lemon helps clean the body of toxins, and helps prevent bloating, gas, and heartburn, and B6 balances levels of Sodium and Potassium that your body has, to help reduce any bloating. These drops also contain honey to soothe and add extra flavor. They are fast-acting and perfect for when you feel carsick, have pregnancy nausea, ate too much, feel a bit gassy, or any other digestive issues you may be facing.

      I really like the flavor of these Stomach Settle Nausea Relief Drops. The ginger isn't overpowering and they have a sweet taste. The size of each piece is similar to that of a cough drop. I have found that these drops are nice to suck on after a meal, and have really seemed to help ease an upset stomach. I love that they are supposed to help with gas as well. They're perfect to keep in your bag to have on the go, and make a nice after dinner treat!

Daily Goodie Box- May 2019

Disclaimer: I received the following product(s) in exchange for my review. All opinions my own.

I received some awesome stuff in my May Goodie Box. Lots of beauty self love treatments, between tasty beverages, masks, and snacks! 
Checkout each item below!

KÖE - Organic Kombucha: I'm not a big fan of kombucha but I've heard of the great health benefits about drinking it in moderation. Packed with probiotics, this drink is definitely a taste you have to get use to. This particular one contains 90 calories, 0g of fat, and 4 billion probiotics. It is USDA Organic, vegan, and gluten free. I received the Raspberry Lemon flavor, and wow was it tart! I enjoyed the sizzle it contained, but the flavor was hard to swallow. Though I would be open to try other flavors, this one is just not for me. It's great for the gut though!

Pure Aura - Cosmic Shimmer Hologram Foil Mask: This beauty mask is made to soothe, hydrate, and firm your skin. It contains a dual layer, or charcoal on one side and foil on the other, to help keep the moisture from evaporating. It contains several healthy ingredients such as: Glycerin to improve circulation and soothe inflammation, Honeysuckle to also soothe inflamed skin, Chamomile to moisturize, soothe, and soften, Marigold to help inflammation and aid in healing-with a cell renewal property, and last but not least, Wormwood to help promote blood circulation, improve metabolism, nourish skin and renew it. All these ingredients are great in the anti aging process. The mask was came in 2 parts, and was pretty easy to apply, though very interesting to wear. I loved the fun sparkle it had, but the fit bit was a little wonky in some spots so I had to readjust several times. Over all it was fun to experiment with. It has a great smell and left my face feeling soft.

Goddess Garden - Facial SPF30 Natural Sunscreen Lotion: Having sunscreen on hand, especially through the summer, is definitely something we all need to keep our skin healthy! Goddess Garden's sun lotion is a non-nano zinc oxide mineral sunscreen that includes Immortelle essential oil, which is a natural anti-aging ingredient to help repair wrinkles and moisturizes the skin while protecting from the sun's harmful UV rays. It's the perfect sunscreen for the beach, because it stays water resistant for up to 40 minutes, and it is reef safe, so it will not harm the environment. It is free from synthetic fragrances, parabens, and phthalates. It is also biodegradable, vegan, and certified by Leaping Bunny to be cruelty free. I applied the sunscreen before going out, and was sad to say, I hated it. Though it rubbed on well, once it dried, my face felt like dusty clay. I was not fond of the smell, and that texture was very off-putting. I found that it is also very hard to wash off. Unfortunately it is not one of my favorites.

CUSA Tea - Premium Instant Tea Variety Pack: I love these variety tea packs! They're perfect to test out each flavor to see what is the best. The instant powder makes it so easy to have a mug of hot tea without the wait to brew it. They all taste great and even better with cream and sugar. This pack included two servings each of Organic English Breakfast, Lemon Black, Chai and Mango Green Teas, and then one serving each of Organic Oolong and Organic Green Teas. The tea is so easy to make, you can bring it with you on the go! It is certified paleo and keto, as well as vegan friendly and gluten free.

Kika’s Treats - Salted Crunchy Caramels: These salted crunchy caramels were so delicious, making a wonderful afternoon snack. They had just the right flavor and, though a little chewy for my preference, they were perfect. These caramels were made with the following ingredients: Bittersweet Chocolate (cacao beans, sugar, cocoa butter, sunflower lecithin {an emulsifier}, vanilla beans), Organic Coconut Palm Sugar, Organic Cream, Glucose, Organic Butter, Organic Puffed Brown Rice, Kosher Salt, Sea Salt Flakes. Making them 100% Natural and amazing on your taste buds!

Michele’s Granola - Grab-and-Go Snack Size Granola: A yummy and healthy snack, you can eat any time of day. I received the original flavor, though they have several other flavors to choose from! This granola had such a great flavor, perfect to eat as is or add into yogurt! It was made with a tasty blend of coconut, sunflower seeds, sliced almonds, and a touch of Madagascar Vanilla. It is certified vegan and verified by the Non GMO Project. It was also baked with wind power, how cool is that?! It makes the perfect afternoon snack!

PiperWai - Natural Deodorant Stick: Made with activated charcoal to help neutralize odors, this deodorant glides on easily, leaving a smooth clean feel. It is made with 100% natural ingredients, and leaves behind a fresh scent, consisting of an essential oil blend using: Peppermint, Clary, Bergamot, Tangerine, Thyme, Lemongrass, Tea Tree, Clove, Lavender, and Rosemary. As most natural deodorants work, you must reapply after bathing or exercise, and sometimes multiple times throughout the day to keep the odors away. It's a very soft deodorant and feels nice on the pits. Definitely one to try if you're in the market for a natural one!

Prince & Spring - Organic Applesauce Pouches: These applesauce pouches are perfect for an on the go snack. Made from 100% USA Organic Apples and no sugar added, these make such a healthy snack for people of all ages! The applesauce itself has a bit of a tartness to it, due to no added sugar, but kids will love getting to slurp the goodness out. They make a great school snack, and perfect to eat on the go! 

 I've enjoyed trying another batch of products and looking forward to the next! Would you like to try your in Goodie Box for free? Join the Daily Goodie Box to receive your own set of products to test!

The Intimate Connection - Book Review

Disclaimer: I received the following product(s) in exchange for my review. All opinions my own.

   The Intimate Connection by Dr. Kevin Leman is a self help book based on the secrets to building up a lifelong romance, and a better marriage with your spouse. This book talks about key secrets to increase the bond one another has together, continuing a lifestyle of intimacy, learning to fully respect each other, and open the doors of communication. Some key points that are covered in this book are •gaining the ability to understand each others needs, backgrounds, and personalities •talk so your spouse really listens •turn negative game-play into positive behavior, and •create deep and long-lasting intimacy together.

There are are a lot of topics covered in this book, some that you may want to skip over, some that you may find really helpful, and some that you know might help someone else. Dr. Kevin Leman is full of advice and really goes into depth on all kinds of information. I really enjoyed reading about different personality types, and matches based on birth order. Though I didn't really relate to the descriptions, it was interesting to read his take on them. I like that there are different scenarios used in the chapters, to kind of help pave a picture of things different couples go through. There are a lot of interesting ideas in this book, making it great for both first time married couples, or long term marriages. 

You can find The Intimate Connection available for purchase on Amazon, as well as many other books written by Dr. Kevin Leman. 

This post is made possible by the Revell Reads Program in providing me with a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions my own.
