OvenArt Bakeware's Silicone Muffin Pan Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial. 
 
Most people have metal muffin pans in their kitchen...you know...those ones that contain burnt residue from using cooking spray instead of liners. Or is that just me? 
I'm sure I'm not the only one ;)

The OvenArt Bakeware's Silicone Muffin Pan makes making muffins or cupcakes so much easier, ending with a scrub free clean up. The pan is made of pure 100% high quality European silicone, it is also BPA and filler free. It measures 12.8 x 9.7 x 1.2 inches, with each cup holding 2.5 ounces and measuring 2 3/4 inches across. The nonstick baking cups allow the food to slide out easily, leaving less mess then metal muffin tins do, and it easily cleans up with a little soap and water,
or a toss in the dishwasher. 

You can make all kinds of delicious yummies with this muffin pan! From muffins to cupcakes, mini lasagnas to taco cups, frozen desserts and more! The silicone muffin pan is safe for the oven, freezer, microwave, and dishwasher, and is protected by the OvenArt "Better Muffin" Guarantee for lifetime assurance against defects and performance issues.

I made sausage and cheese egg muffins in the OvenArt muffin pan to fully test the baking cups ability to cook evenly, be nonsticking, and come out clean. I have to say I LOVE this pan. The eggs cooked completely even, the cleanup was so easy, there was no sticking, and everything came out just perfect!
You can see in the photo to the right, just how easily the lil guys popped up with little mess.

I can't wait to experiment with cooking other foods in this pan,
like my Cheeseburger Casserole Muffins or the Mini Corn-dog Muffins...yum!
 Some tips in using the OvenArt Silicone Muffin pan is to place the bakeware on a cookie sheet before filling the cups, for an easier transfer to the oven. You may lightly grease the muffin pan using oil, butter, or baking spray for the best nonstick experience. Once the pan is cool, you can pop up your baked goods with your fingers, just by pushing up from the bottom of the cups, for easy release.
I think the OvenArt Silicone Muffin Pan is a great product to invest in, because you deserve a stress free baking experience, so you can fully enjoy the glory in baking! 

The OvenArt Bakeware's 12 Cup Silicone Muffin Pan is 
available for purchase on Amazon for $16.95

Natures Best Vitamin C Serum by Mystelic

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial. 
 
Natures Best Vitamin C Serum by Mystelic is said the be the #1 highest quality Vitamin C product on the market, made for face, eyes, and acne. It contains C + E Hyaluronic Acid and is manufactured in the U.S. by their top of the line FDA Certified Cosmetic Lab,
and made with organic ingredients.

Vitamin C has been clinically tested and proved to stimulate collagen and reverse the effects of aging, while removing toxins, diminishing lines and wrinkles. It is said to help reduce acne, minimize the redness of scars, and give you a smoother skin complexion. It works for all skin types, whether you have dry, oily or sensitive skin, it will aid you in getting healthier skin in months.

This is the first time I've ever used a liquid Vitamin C Serum so I wasn't exactly sure what to expect, but I imagined it would be something like a more oily texture, though it's actually more watery then I thought it'd be. The dropper allows me to use as many drops as my face needs, making it long lasting and easy to use. It went on my skin smoothly and left it feeling soft. I've been using it for about 3 weeks now, and haven't noticed a difference, but it can take some time, as every skin type is different. It hasn't caused any drying or negative effects so that right there is already a good sign! :)
I will continue to use and hopefully see some results on
lightening my blemishes and smoothing my skin.

Natures Best Vitamin C Serum is available for purchase on Amazon for $22.95 and free shipping with Amazon Prime, with a 45 day money back guarantee.

Special K Coffee House Breakfast Shakes

As a Bzzagent, I was sent Special K's new coffee House Breakfast Shakes to review, as well as a few $1.50 off coupons.

Special K Coffee House Breakfast Shakes are a great on the go drink, you can take with you when you're in a rush. They contain less than 200 calories with each serving containing 10g of protein and 5g of fiber. They provide nearly 1/3rd of the daily value of key vitamins and minerals, while containing 65mg of caffeine, (that's as much caffeine as a 5.5oz cup of coffee) giving you nutrition needed to kickstart your day.

I first tried the Vanilla Cappuccino and loved it!! The taste is so delicious, I drank it all too fast though lol. It gave me a good amount of energy, just as a cup of coffee does. Once it was finished I wanted more! I would say this flavor is on par with the typical coffee house drinks! The Chocolate Mocha wasn't as good as I expected it to be, but it was still tasty with a rich mocha flavor.

I love that these breakfast shakes have a resealable screw on lid so it is safe to take with you on the go and you don't have to worry about it spilling. They are not chalky tasting at all, and leave you feeling like you just gave yourself a treat!!

Special K Coffee House Breakfast Shakes come in the following flavors:
Double Chocolate, Red Berries, French Vanilla, Chocolate Mocha, and Vanilla Cappuccino.

You can find them at most grocery stores or by searching your zipcode at kelloggs.com.

Apple Cinnamon - Quaker Warm & Crunchy Granola

Recently, I received a kit from Bzzagent to review the new Quaker Warm & Crunchy Granola in the flavor of Honey Almond. Since we liked it so much, I wanted to try the other two flavors:
Apple Cinnamon and Cranberry Almond.


I could only find the Apple Cinnamon flavor, so I purchased a box, using a $2.00 off coupon, and tried them the next day. Apple Cinnamon is also good, but not quite as good as the Honey almond flavor. I am not too fond of the squishy apple chunks in it, and it also doesn't have the same sweet honey flavor. I microwaved the granola in 1/4 cup of Vanilla Almond Milk this time, and it works just as good as normal milk! This is a great substitute, if you have a hard time digesting the lactose in cow's milk. It mixes well with the granola and gives it a nice nutty flavor. It is also made with 33g of whole grains and 4g of fiber, making it a delicious part of your daily breakfast.

You can find Quaker Warm & Crunchy Granola in most grocery stores, or you could use Quaker's handy online tool that searches which stores in your location carry the product. See that here.

Honey Almond - Quaker Warm & Crunchy Granola

 Quaker Warm & Crunchy Granola is a new oatmeal with a crunch, made with whole grain Quaker Oats and granola clusters,
all you do is add milk and heat it in the microwave for just 25 seconds. It's ready to eat, and the crunch stays! It not only tastes delicious, but it has at least as many whole grains and
fiber as a bowl of Original Quaker Instant Oatmeal. 

Quaker Warm & Crunchy Granola comes in three flavors:
Apple Cinnamon, made with real apple pieces and a touch of cinnamon,
Cranberry Almond with a cranberry nutty flavor,
and Honey Almond with a sweet nutty mix.

I received the Honey Almond flavor, and oh my goodness it is so good!! Even my son, who is an oatmeal hater, loved this product. The flavor is sweet and nutty, but not overpowering..I would say it's perfect, and feeling the warmth fall into your mouth is heaven. I love that you can also eat this by itself, or poured over yogurt. It has just enough granola in it to disguise the mushy texture and flavor of original oatmeal, and it separated into little packets for just the right amount, although it leaves me wanting more :) Quaker's new Warm & Crunchy Granola is a great breakfast or snack food. With 33g of whole grains, and 4g of fiber, it makes for a great start to your day.
