Discover Campbell's

Discover Campbell's with their numerous NEW and delicious products to try! I've been able to make a variety of different dinner meals from Creamy Parmesan Chicken to Shrimp Scampi and for lunch new Beer-n-Cheese with Beef & Bacon Soup to SpaghettiOs MirOs CheeseburgerOs!
I LOVE Parmesan Chicken so I was ecstatic to cook with Campbell's Skillet Creamy Parmesan Chicken sauce: as the package reads: Just add the chicken!

Slice the chicken into smaller pieces (recommended 1.5" pieces) . Then heat oil in the skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the chicken until browned. Stir in sauce and heat to a boil. Reduce heat to low. Cover and cook 5 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
While that was cooking, I also tried out Prego NEW Light Homestyle Alfredo sauce with a penne pasta side dish.  
Dinner was served and tasted great! 5/5
Another dinner entrée was Shrimp Scampi. As the package reads: Just add shrimp!
Oil in skillet over medium-high heat. Add the shrimp and cook until slightly pink. Stir in sauce an heat to a boil. Reduce heat to low. Cook and stir until shrimp are cooked through.
I don't cook with shrimp regularly (not really a seafood lover) but this dish is very good. I may occasionally try this one again since my husband enjoyed it too.
I also cooked with the Chicken Marsala which I REALLY enjoyed! You just follow the same instructions as the Creamy Parmesan Chicken.
There is also NEW Campbell's Slow Kettle Style Creamy Broccoli Cheddar Bisque, NEW Campbell's Slow Kettle Style Roasted Chicken Noodle Soup with herbs & white meat chicken, NEW Campbell's Condensed Soup Creamy Poblano & Queso, Pub-Style Chicken Pot Pie Soup, Beer-n-Cheese with Beef & Bacon (this one is a huge hit. I always find near empty shelves!), Campbell's Soups for East Cooking: Savory Potobello Mushroom, Campbell's Soups for East Cooking: Mexican Style Tomato.  Prego Alfredo Sauce: Basil Pesto, Swanson Cream Starter 25% Reduced Fat Cream Based Broth, Swanson Cream Starter Traditional Cream Based Broth, SpaghettiOs MirOs CheeseburgerOs, & SpaghettiOs MicrOs Origional. Whew, that's a lot of products to try! These are the selections (as pictured) that I started in my "Discover Campbell's" mission to taste and create recipes! So far everything has tasted fantastic. The one thing that I could not find in stores was the New V8 Spicy Mango. When I do find one I will have to blend it and create some cocktails!
Overall I would rate these products 5/5! I pick their soup over any brand when I am feeling down with the weather. I highly recommend Campbell's products.

Scott Naturals Tissue (Tube-Free!)

"Scott Naturals tissue brand challenges you to toss that tube!"
If you're like me and your bathroom looks like this:

(I know, I look like a hoarder... BUT I do recycle the tubes!)
I have some exciting news for you! Here is the new Scott Naturals tube-free bath tissue. Just toss that step of tossing the roll and save time do so! Over 17 billion bath tissue tubes are thrown away each year. That's a lot! The level of softness and texture is good. No complaints really on the usage. Great for the eco system. I tried the 4 mega rolls which equals 12 large rolls. I'm not sure what a large roll is anymore but they do last :)
Good product. Go tubeless and have a clean bathroom too!

Zevia Zero Calorie Soda

"Zero Calories, No Sugar, & No Artificial Sweeteners!"
Holidays are right around the corner. Its the time for family gatherings and outdoor festivities. Maybe host a BBQ or just enjoy the cool air outside with friends. I, myself, have a lot of nieces and nephews.  When having so many people come over it is a great idea to have plenty of drinks on hand ready to go. When it comes to drinks the one thing most kids love these days is soda!  Recently I went to the Wow Summit in Orlando where I learned a lot about eating and drink healthy especially involving children. I do not have any kids yet but getting educated with what I should be serving at activities with so many relatives that do have children (as well as eating healthy myself) was incredibly helpful. There was so much information to consume that my brain is still wrapping around a lot of things to consider and change in the future. But its a good change :)  One of the products that I discovered was the Zevia Zero Calorie Soda!
No sugar soda. Can you believe it? I can relax knowing that I'm not hyping up kids after offering them a cold soda beverage! A seemingly healthy soda choice option for the next gathering. There are several flavors to choose from. Some containing caffeine and others not. My favorite was the Ginger Root Beer (no caffeine). It tastes sweet with a nice soda fizz just as any other soda. That was a popular hit at the Wow Summit event. Everyone seemed to love it. I would recommend this as an alternative to those who drink diet soda! 
These drinks are also Vegan, Kosher and Gluten-Free.  All natural ingredients. Sweetened with Stevia.

Ricola Lemon Zest

"Get your energy back. Take a Ricola!"

Ricola has created their newest Revitalizing Herb Drop. Experiencing the frequent cough drains your energy and you feel like you lose a bit your usual self. I know I do when ever this season affect me in this way. Getting through work on my feet with a cough can be a exhausting. With the revitalizing Herb Drops it offers a natural boost of energy. All the way from Switzerland, each drop has a lemon-y flavor with a powdery combination in the center filled with a bunch of great stuff! Really, there is a refreshing blend of Swiss alpine herbs and ginseng. Also, In just 2 drops it provides 20% of the Adult Daily Value of Vitamin B6 and Vitamin B12.  Take between 2-10 daily depending on your condition.
I love that the wrapper is so discreet! Almost appears like a candy wrapper.  Good idea :)

I love the flavor!  Everyone who has tasted the drops loved the flavor. Highly recommended.

Clean Like A Pro Zep

Battle the flu and germs with newest Zep products Zep Quick Clean Disinfectant AND Zep All-Around Oxy Cleaner and Degreaser.

Winter is approaching and this weather is getting pretty chilly! With this change usually follows the cold and flu season. With Zep Quick clean Disinfectant you can fight gems that linger on surfaces. This product kills 99.9% of bacteria in just 5 seconds. That's great to have for this time of the year.
The other product I love using is the Zep All-Around Oxy Cleaner and Degreaser. This product quickly cleans virtually any surface. So that means when you experience a wine or juice or any other colored liquid spill this product cleans it right away. Simply spray, wait 1 minute, then wipe and rise. I use this a lot since I have 4 cats. I've also tested this cleaner on my stove surface too. I had just finished enjoying a delicious meal of Campbell's Shrimp Scampi. For the clean-up afterwards I applied the product. It didn't clean everything on the first try but for the most part it worked wonderfully.

Although be careful. When you spray the cleaner just be aware of what is around the area. The range that is applied sprays pretty far. I'd estimate around a foot in measurement. My stove is right next to my dry dish rack so I had to make sure nothing is too close.
This product is NOT made to use on leather, silk, suede, sensitive stone surfaces, marble, or any surfaces harmed by water.
Recommended. I will purchase this product in the future. For more household supplies visit Zep on their Facebook page.

Fast Acting Advil

Advil has come out with new fast acting pain reliever/fever reducer. I personally suffer with frequent headaches, migraines and occasional back pain so this is something I was liking to try. The moment you start to feel the need for a quick relief before the pain gets worse is the right time to choose Advil. A recent morning I woke up with a headache and after taking 2 tablets with a glass of water I started to feel some relief almost instant. Unlike when I take Aleve which the effects take a while to soothe the pain. This is just what I needed to finish getting ready as I headed out for work!
So what exactly makes this work faster than before? This time Advil adds a new formula with a core of ibuprofen sodium. With the new film-coated and advanced formula, this new tablet can be absorbed into the body faster. Pretty effective!  Also there is no worry of taking too much sodium to cause any harmful effects. As long as you do not take over the maximum number of tablets (which is 6) the sodium intake is only 132 mg.
This fast acting Advil is great to take if you suffer from aches & pains due to: headache, toothache, backache, menstrual cramps, the common cold, muscular aches, minor pain of arthritis, temporary reduces fever. I've heard positive feedback from others I know who have tried this new product. Recommended! (Please read all warnings as caution if you have ever experienced any health conditions or are pregnant)
Other Advil products will remain in stores if you still want to pick up their other selections.
