CLOSED ~ Dove Men + Care Review and Giveaway!


I have reviewed Dove MEN+CARE products before. Well actually, my hubby has. He was excited I was asked to review them again because he really likes these products.

As Father's Day approaches, this is a great opportunity to give the men in your life some Dove® Men + Care™. I know my dad loves these products as well. I took him some the last time I visited Costa Rica and he loved them.

Dove Men +Care is now bringing golf fans from the fairway to the personal putting greens of 2009 Open Champion Stewart Cink and 1997 PGA Champion and 2012 U.S. Ryder Cup Team Captain Davis Love III.

Dove Men + Care is also giving golf fans a chance to get up-close and personal off the fairway with these two legends as they share with you their own personal never-before-seen moments that tell their own “Journey to Comfort”. These intimate videos reveal the golf icons’ personal milestones and highlight those ever important unsung moments – both on and off the green. From overcoming struggles as young athletes with families to stories from their wives, their “Journey to Comfort” videos highlight the challenges these men overcame to become comfortable in their own skin.

Dove MEN+CARE is the brand’s first-ever product line created specifically for men. Here’s a quick snapshot of our Dove® Men + Care™ line:

●New Dove Men + Care, from the #1 dermatologist recommended brand Dove, is built on the brand’s heritage in cleansing, moisturizing and care.

●The new Dove Men + Care Sensitive Clean Body and Face Wash clinically fights dryness better than regular men’s body washes* and is formulated specifically for men who prefer a mild, unscented body and face wash.

●The new Dove Men + Care Deodorants and Antiperspirants are formulated to provide advanced 48 hour protection, so they’re tough on sweat, not on skin.


In addition to the amazing “Journey to Comfort” videos, Dove® Men + Care has also set up a brand new Twitter handle, which you can find here where you and your audience can participate for a chance to WIN* daily prizing, including memorabilia signed by Cink and Love, in addition to other golf-related gear. Additionally, definitely check out the Tournament to Comfort* game here to play for a chance to WIN amazing prizing, including the opportunity to meet Stewart Cink, a session with Cink’s swing coach, a set of custom clubs and finally, a trip to the 2012 tour championship!
What can I say that I haven't before? Hubby loves the products. He was glad to get more Body & Face Shower Gel and the Body & Face. He likes the feel and smell of the products. Dove has created great products for men. I have yet to find a Dove product I don't like.

And as usual, the wonderful people at Dove want me to share the goodies with one of my readers. One of you will win a the shower gel, the bar soap, deodorant and the Active Clean Shower Tool! YAY!! Enter now if you want your man smelling good and feeling smooth!

They Shoot Horses, Don't They?

Okay Monday I threw my back out while standing up. I realized that as I hit 50 in a couple of years, my body is falling apart. So I throw out my back and think I will get better. I ended up at the ER the next day. Side Note: The ER I go to is the same one featured in the movie The Fugitive with Harrison Ford. Yes, folks, our ER is freaking famous.

Anyhow, I go and get a shot, drugs and a few days off. I am feeling a little better but have to go to a specialist. Hopefully he will give me more shots and drugs. But most likely I will get lectured and told to lose weight and exercise. Sigh

Anyway, I know I have to pick a Costa Rica giveaway winner and have to add more giveaways. Hang in there because hopefully this weekend I might feel up to it! In the meantime keep entering the ongoing giveaways!!

Closed ~ Saucy Mama "Fab with Five" Recipe Contest + Giveaway!!!

Some of you know that last year I actually won the Saucy Mama recipe contest. I still don't believe it since you all know that my style of cooking is totally random and willy-nilly. I can't follow a recipe to save my life.

This year I was once invited to participate. You know I had to because I have to at least try to keep my title. I almost didn't because the rules were different this year. To participate, we could only use five (5) ingredients. Holy smokes. This was a difficult task.

I thought really hard about what to make. I had been craving empanadas (meat pies) for a while. When I tasted the Saucy Mama Santa Fe Chipotle dressing, I thought I could probably make a pretty good empanada using that condiment. I thought back to when I was a little girl and watched my abuelita Gilda make empanadas. Hers were so delicious. Of course, her empanadas used like 5,000 ingredients so I had to really think about how to recreate the recipe.

Her recipe called for ground beef, olives, onions, garlic, cumin, cilantro etc. etc. etc. I couldn't use those things and I needed to add more flavor so I decided besides the ground beef, I would use Mexican style chorizo (sausage) to give it a little more flavor. My abuelita always added olives to her empanada meat so I had to use olives. The olives add a little bit of tartness. Luckily, the Saucy Mama Santa Fe Creamy Chipotle Dressing added enough spice that I didn't miss all the other spices.

I needed to have the dough for the empanadas. Usually I would make my own but that would add about 3 extra ingredients if I had made my own empanada dough so I had to improvise. I decided on pie crusts since I could not find my beloved Goya Discos. Usually I can use those in a pinch because it is premade empanada dough but because I live in the boonies, sometimes it is hard to find necessary ingredients.

So my five ingredients were: Saucy Mama Santa Fe Creamy Chipotle Dressing, Mexican chorizo, ground beef, pie crusts and pimento stuffed olives.

Spicy Two Meat Olive Empanadas (makes 10 empanadas)

Ingredients:

1/2 cup Saucy Mama Santa Fe Creamy Chipotle Dressing
Package of ground beef
3 chorizo sausages
8 8-10 roughly chopped olives
A packet of Pillsbury pie crusts
Free Ingredients: salt, pepper and olive oil

Directions:

Brown the ground beef and chorizo in a olive oil. Add salt and pepper. Roughly chop the olives and add into the meat mixture. Add the Saucy Mama sauce into the mixture and let simmer.

Unroll the pie crust dough and cut into rounds. Stuff the dough round with the meat mixture, about teaspoon. Make sure it is not too full. Press the edges together and then finish off with a fork. Fry the empanadas in some olive oil about 2 minutes per side. Cooking time will depend on how hot your oil is. Once browned, take out and drain on paper towels.

Serve hot with a side of the Saucy Mama Santa Fe Creamy Chipotle Dressing or drizzle a little on top.

That's it. It can't get easier than that. The Saucy Mama Dressing gave the meat mixture enough flavor that was lost on not being able to add other ingredients. Pie crusts are fragile so you have to be careful when frying but they do puff up nicely. I do prefer real empanada dough because it is more dense. But the pie crust actually make these more flaky and lighter.

The empanadas were delicious. These are great for parties, appetizers, snacks or even a meal. Serve s few empanadas with some white rice and black beans and it is a complete meal. My abuela Gilda would be proud!

Buen Provecho!!

Now onto the giveaway. One winner will receive a box of Saucy Mama goodies that will contain one bottle each of Saucy Mama Sweet Heat Marinade, Saucy Mama Tarragon Lemon Mustard, and Saucy Mama Pacific Rim Ginger Dressing to create your own tasty treats. So read the rules and enter below!!

Black & Decker Ultimate Sandwich Recipe Contest: Caro's Eggplant Parm Sandwich


This is my entry into the Black & Decker Ultimate Sandwich Recipe Contest. I was one of the 50 bloggers chosen to receive a Black & Decker Convection Toaster Oven and submit an entry.

The recipes will be judged on the yumminess of the sandwich, creative use of ingredients and originality. Bad part is they are also judging on how yummy the sandwich looks. I am not a great food photographer so hopefully my pictures look okay! Once the judging is over, the judges will choose 4-5 blogger recipes and recreate them and then judge them on taste. The blogger with the yummiest sandwich will win a $1,000 cash prize and have their recipe professionally photographed and included in a nationally distributed back-to-school themed feature release this summer! Cool.

You all know I can't follow a recipe to save my life and then to have to create one is sort of a challenge but I did it. The hard part was coming up with a sandwich recipe. I put a lot of thought into what to make then one day while watching a TV show where someone was eating Eggplant Parmesan, I had a brainstorm.

I love Eggplant Parmesan but it is a lot of work to make it so I rarely do. I wondered if I could make a sandwich with the same ingredients and actually make it work. I figured I could deconstruct the dish and try to pt it all back together in a sandwich form. It actually worked. Here is my recipe.



Caro's Eggplant
Parm Sandwich

Ingredients* (to make 2 sandwiches, just double the ingredients)

4 slices of eggplant, thinly sliced
2 slices tomatoes

2 slices Italian Tuscan style bread (or any crusty bread)
1/4 cup of shredded
Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup of
Ragu spaghetti sauce (or your favorite pasta sauce)
1/4 cup of Olive oil
Fresh Basil leaves

Butter

Salt

Pepper

Directions

Thinly slice eggplant. You will n
eed about 4 slices per sandwich. Completely coat the eggplant slices in olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook eggplant in toaster oven at 400 degrees for about 10-12 minutes. Finish the eggplant off by broiling 3 more minutes to brown.
Put aside. Take the bread slices and butter one side of the bread. Add the shredded Parmesan on top. Take the bread and toast it in the toaster oven for about 5-7 minutes. Make sure the Parmesan cheese is melted and the bottom toasted. You want the bread toasted well so it can hold up to the tomato sauce.

Start putting your sandwich together by taking the spaghetti sauce and smearing some on both toasted bread slices. Then place the eggplant slices on one slice of bread. Top with Mozzarella cheese. On the other slice of bread add the tomatoes and top with more mozzarella cheese.
Put into and broil for about 3-5 minutes or until the mozzarella cheese has melted and becomes soft. Take both slices out of the oven. Add the fresh basil leaves and put the sandwich together. Slice. Serve with a side of sauce and enjoy!

Let me tell you that I was not sure how this was going to work. It can get a little messy with the tomato sauce and melted cheese but it was so good. It really tasted like eggplant Parmesan but it was much easier to make. The bread with Parmesan cheese is a great substitute for the breading you normally use on the eggplant. And the flavors really melded together for a delicious mouthful! Buen Provecho!

CLOSED ~ Maggi Products Review and Giveaway!


Growing up there are products that were always in my house. One of those products was Maggi Bullion cubes or "Cubitos Maggi" as my mami and abelita called them. There was always a packet of cubitos Maggi in our house. They would use them to make stews, soups and as a spice to fry up chicken or to make rice.

My granny would always have the Maggi sopa de vegetales, pollo and fideos (chicken, veggies and noodles) in her house. When we got sick, she broke out the packet of soup and gave us some so we would get better. It's funny that I remember something so random but that's just me.

As I grew up, I always had cubitos Maggi in my pantry as well. I love using them to make chicken broth when I need it for a recipe. I also love using them when I need to spice up my arroz con pollo or other meals. The cube has so much flavor that I use it as I would salt or pepper.

When I received the opportunity to review some Maggi products, I was all over that because this is a product that I have used and will continue using. I received a basket of items, including the garlic and onion bullion cubes, chicken flavored bullion powder, Sopa de fideos (chicken noodle soup) and some sofrito paste. I had never tried the sofrito paste so I decided to use that. Sofrito is a mixture of garlic, onion, tomatoes and spices used as a base for cooking traditional recipes.

I wondered if I could achieve a one pot dinner with the sofrito paste and no other spices. I started by frying up some chicken thighs. Then I added the sofrito paste and finished cooking the chicken. I then added some chicken broth and simmered it all together. The only spices I added were salt and pepper. Once I let the chicken and sofrito cook a while, I added some rice and let it all cook up. To finish the dish, I added some fresh cilantro.

It was delicious and easy. The dish was so flavorful because of the Maggi sofrito paste. Hubby loved it! If you have never tried these products, you really should. They are very good. I love the fact that every time I use them, they remind me of my childhood.

You can win a $200 gift card by entering the Ponle Sabor a Tu Cocina Con MAGGI (Share your Cooking Secret) sweepstakes on the Maggi site. All you do is sign up and share a cooking secret. If you don't have one, you can still enter. The daily prize is $200 and the grand prize is $10,000! You can enter daily. You know I am ll over that. I could totally use $10,000.

Thanks to the great peeps at Maggi, I have a $25 Visa gift card to give to one of my readers so they can try the Maggi products as well. YAY! Just read the rules and enter!

Kymaro CardiWrap Review

I recently had the opportunity to review the new Kymaro Cardi Wrap. The Cardi Wrap is a wrap that you can wear in different ways. At first I was a little skeptical but as I read the booklet that was sent, I realized that you can wear it a lot of ways.

Not only can you wear it as a wrap but it can be a scarf, shawl or wear it like a top. It comes with a cool accessory kit that includes bangles and cute pins so you can play and twist, knot and make it up in different styles.

I have to admit that some of the instructions were a little confusing but that's because I am a fashion dope. Let's face it folks, I am not that stylish. I also make a sucky model but I took some pictures of me in the Cardi Wrap so you can see how versatile it really is.

I also took some pictures off their site because I wanted you to see how cool this little wrap really is. What I liked about it is that it comes in regular sizes or plus size and I am all about plus size. It is the perfect wrap as is. It works like a cardigan which I love. I know I could toss this on over a dress or jeans and it would work perfectly.

I like that it can be used as a scarf and you can use it to wear to a fancy dinner or the park. The booklet gives you great ideas on how to wear it. I also love that it covers up the muffin top and belly. Worn correctly, it can slim you down. The fabric is soft and is light enough to be worn as a summer wrap, a spring sweater or layered in Fall or Winter. If you go on the site, you will see that some of the ways to use this is like a blouse/sweater.

It comes in 7 colors (I got black, of course) and is only $39.95 with $9.95 shipping charge. You can go to BuyCardiWrap.com and check out the colors! For under $50 bucks you get a clothing item that can be worn anywhere at anytime and in different ways. Let me tell you that is huge. Think of all the money you will save on this one item.

I totally recommend this product. I know I will be wearing the Cardi Wrap for many different events. You can follow Kymaro on Twitter and Facebook.

Disclosure: This review was written as a part of a The Family Review Network campaign. Thanks to Kymaro for providing a Cardi Wrap and accessory kit for the purpose of this review in exchange for my honest opinion of the product.
