PeppersHEROThe holidays are fast approaching, and I must say, I love this time of year. Spending time with friends and family around the dinner table is always one of my favorites parts of the Christmas season. You can sit down, relax, and converse over an inviting meal. Plus I just love discovering new recipes to share with them that are perfect for the holidays!

However as a working mom, I prefer to find meals that are not only delicious, but are easy to make! I don’t have time to prep and cook in the kitchen for hours upon hours. To me, easy is key. Thanks to the amazing ConAgra products, such as Hunt’s and MANWICH… yes, yes you CAN find delicious meals that are easy to make as well! One of these recipes is my Stuffed Peppers, which actually uses both Hunt’s Diced Tomatoes and MANWICH Sloppy Joe Sauce.

Create an INSIDE OUT Holiday Ornament! ~ #InsideOut

*This download and print is no longer available*

I received this information as a blogger via Walt Disney Publications. All opinions are my own.
InsideOut52057aa1e492fWith Christmas just two days away, check out these fun ornaments you can create based on the latest Disney•Pixar adventure… INSIDE OUT!

From an adventurous balloon ride above the clouds to a monster-filled metropolis, Academy Award®-winning director Pete Docter (“Monsters, Inc.,” “Up”) has taken audiences to unique and imaginative places. In Disney•Pixar’s original movie “ Inside Out,” he will take us to the most extraordinary location of all—inside the mind.

Growing up can be a bumpy road, and it’s no exception for Riley, who is uprooted from her Midwest life when her father starts a new job in San Francisco. Like all of us, Riley is guided by her emotions – Joy (Amy Poehler), Fear (Bill Hader), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith). The emotions live in Headquarters, the control center inside Riley’s mind, where they help advise her through everyday life. As Riley and her emotions struggle to adjust to a new life in San Francisco, turmoil ensues in Headquarters. Although Joy, Riley’s main and most important emotion, tries to keep things positive, the emotions conflict on how best to navigate a new city, house and school.

INSIDE OUT opens in theaters everywhere on June 19, 2015!

I picked up some new LUSH bath bombs last night and will breaking into the case of you know what pictures below…
