The Deliciousness of Homemade Pumpkin Streusel Bread

*Disclosure- I received the mentioned product courtesy of the sponsor for the purpose of this review. All opinions are genuine, based on my experience with the product, and have not been influenced by promotional items.

Pumpkin, pumpkin everywhere! I think you're either a person who jumps on the pumpkin flavored everything bandwagon each fall, or you're not. I definitely AM a pumpkin girl, and will try to find any excuse to use it in my recipes over the next few months. I found this Pumpkin Streusel Bread on Golden Blossom Honey not too long ago, and immediately knew I was going to get myself into trouble with this recipe! It was one of those "take the FitBit off and stop keeping track of your food intake" kind of days because I knew I was totally going to blow it with how scrumptious the bread turned out.

The bread baked up so sweet, moist and delicious, I really couldn't stop with just one piece! Let's just say, the loaf didn't last too long around here! While the recipe is perfect as is, I think it would also be amazing with the addition of some chopped walnuts mixed into the bread batter, which I'll use the next time I make this recipe.

1/4 cup pecans, chopped
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons butter, cut into small pieces
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 cup raisins
1 cup pure pumpkin puree, not pumpkin pie mix
1/2 cup plain low-fat yogurt
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs

3 Ingredient Game Day Dip #ProgressoGameDay

Last weekend, we hosted an impromptu football party. Food wise, I wanted to keep things simple. I wanted to serve finger foods and dishes that didn't require a lot of effort to put together or clean up after. I was really wanting a chili cheese dip, but spending a lot of time in the kitchen preparing the chili just wasn't meshing with my quick and easy plans. But, inspiration hit as I was browsing the soup aisle of the store and came across new Progresso Chili!

I purchased the New Progresso Roasted Vegetable Chili with 3 Beans, which is a meat-free option that includes tomatoes, carrots, roasted corn, red and green bell and poblano peppers and onions; and pinto, black and dark red kidney beans. I brought it home to whip up a quick and easy 3 ingredient dip that had my game day guests raving about its deliciousness! Best of all, it was put together and ready to be served in under 15 minutes!


1 package Progresso Roasted Vegetable Chili with 3 Beans
1 8 ounce package cream cheese, room temperature
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Start the first layer by spreading the cream cheese on the bottom of baking dish.
Next, add the Progresso Chili on top of the cream cheese.
Top the first two layers with the cheddar cheese.
Bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes, or until cheese is completely melted.
*If desired, garnish with sour cream and chives.
Serve immediately.

Regain Confidence With Poise* Impressa* #TryImpressa

As far back as I can remember, my mom has always been one busy bee! I don't remember her sitting down often, always cleaning, doing yard work, or baking in the kitchen. She also used to love rearranging the furniture in the house, wanting to keep things looking updated and fresh. One of those furniture arranging days stands out in my mind, even after 25 years. Mom had been working in the living room, re-positioning end tables, shoving chairs into new corners, swapping around photos on the wall. I sat there watching her work her magic, transforming the room into a new work of art. And, then it happened. She started to move the heavy sofa, when all of a sudden she drops the end, runs straight to the restroom, and yells for me to grab her some new undergarments. What!? At 10 years old I just didn't understand what had happened. Mom just peed in her pants? Not possible. She's my mom. An adult. A superhero! Superheros don't have accidents, do they? As I got older, I realized that mom didn't, in fact, pee her pants. What happened that day was a condition she, as well as millions of other women have, that's known as Stress Urinary Incontinence.

Stress Urinary Incontinence is the unintentional loss of urine that happens with physical movement, such as running, heaving lifting, or even by every day occurrences such as coughing or sneezing. SUI is actually common in many women, but can cause a great deal of emotional distress when leaks happen. Thankfully, there's a new product available that is helping women to regain their confidence so they can live a full and balanced life without fear of surprise leaks dampening their day, and it's called Poise* Impressa*.

Poise* Impressa* is a revolutionary product that is designed to stop bladder leaks before they start. While they may look like a tampon, they don't work in that way. They are non-absorbent, designed solely to stop leaks from happening. When inserted, they expand to your unique shape, pressing against the urethra to lift and give it extra support.

Poise* Impressa* comes in 3 different sizes to ensure a proper and comfortable fit for most women. Unsure of your size? Don't worry! There's a Poise* Impressa* sizing kit that will help you determine which size is best for you. The sizing kit contains 6 bladder supports (2 of each size) so you can accurately find the right bladder support that best fits your internal size. Poise* Impressa* Bladder Supports are available over-the-counter, and can be worn every day, up to 8 hours to help stop bladder leaks before they start.

Want to experience it for yourself? Grab a valuable Poise* Impressa* coupon good for $2 off the sizing kit! Once you've found your perfect fit, grab another $2 coupon for the 10-count base pack of Poise* Impressa*!

Has bladder leakage caused you to lose confidence? Do you think the new Poise* Impressa* would help you live without fear of embarassing leaks?

Easy Homemade Apple Butter

*Disclosure- I received the mentioned product courtesy of the sponsor for the purpose of this review. All opinions are genuine, based on my experience with the product, and have not been influenced by promotional items.

Have you ever come across a food that you loved so much that you remember exactly where you were the first time you ever had it? For me, it's apple butter. I was 9 years old and my mom had just brought home a little jar from the farmer's market to serve with dinner that night. Now, I'm a butter girl through and through, but once I had a bite of that sweet deliciousness, I was sold! As much as I have loved apple butter over the years, I have never made my own. With the cooler temps hitting, I've been craving some a lot lately, and thankfully Golden Blossom Honey had a very easy to follow Apple Butter recipe that made it possible for me to satisfy my craving this week.

This is the perfect fall spread. Paired with fresh muffins, rolls or bread out of the oven equals to pure bliss!

2 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and chopped
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1 tablespoon lemon juice
juice from one orange
1/2 cup apple cider
1/2 teaspoon cornstarch

Disclosure- Thank you to Emerald® Nuts for sponsoring today's post.

I don't know about you, but it seems I am always on the go. I sometimes just want to chuck my daily planner into the fire and go back to bed. If you are a parent like me, then you probably understand where I'm coming from. Between dental and doctor visits, after school sports, grocery shopping, and playing taxi to my girls all day long, I hardly get a minute just to sit with my own thoughts. And, if you are like me, when you are on-the-go, your thoughts usually gravitate towards snacking. Yes, I am one of those people who snacks in the car, so when I came across these Emerald® Nuts Mini Snack Canisters at Walmart, I was thrilled to see a healthy snack that is perfect for busy moms on-the-go like me.

Emerald Nuts Mini Can

No more digging through my purse for an unhealthy candy bar or a trip to the drive through for greasy fries. I love having heart healthy nuts within reach at all times. The canister is perfect to stash in my handbag:
