Cottonelle's Summer Clean Care

"Experience that summertime clean!"
One of the most popular places people love to visit during this nice sunshine weather is, without question, the beach! Cottonelle comes to the rescue with Cottonelle Fresh Care flushable cleaning cloths. For many obvious reasons, this will become very useful. Flushable Cleaning Cloths break up after flushing so no worries about future backups. This fact does not apply to some of their competitor brands. With these cloths on-the-go experience no embarrassing trips to stalls without toilet paper. 
The cleaning cloths will also help you cool off in the heat too. It contains aloe and vitamin E. Also, cloths are alcohol-free!
I know us ladies have enough products in our purse/totes but these wipes come in neat thin packaging. It will definitely come in handy. A must have for this summer!
Trust Cottonelle toilet paper with their cloth-like feel. Compared to other brands this one is preferred in my house. Now in 4 double rolls = 8 regular rolls!
Also available is the Cottonelle Fresh Care flushable cleaning cloths dispenser. Not only in travel size but in a larger quantity. Pick up one today and get creative. The dispenser is your canvas :)

Ozeri Epicurean Digital Kitchen Scale

"Modern & chic, the design is an elegant piece for your kitchen."
This Ozeri Digital Kitchen Scale is ready to use straight out of the box. Its a user friendly piece that even greets you with "Hi User", which was a nice touch. Its made with Tempered glass which means its about four times stronger than an ordinary glass piece. It will not break into sharp shards if it should ever fall (Whew, that's a scary image). Crafted with safety in mind! I've never owned a digital scale before and I was surprised how nice this one looked in person. Loving the 'mirror' styled effect this device gives off. 
I recently used this scale to make quarter pound burgers for my Burger Bash party. The numbers are large and easy to read on the LCD screen once you place your food on the scale. You have grams & ounce weight selections. There are only two touch buttons. Using this scale is made simple. Included are 4 AAA batteries. The scale will read 'Lo' when the batteries will need to be replaced. Replacing batteries is made easy with no screwdriver required access.
A neat feature that this scale provides is the Tare feature. If your using a bowl or plate you can actually subtract the weight to determine the ingredients being weighted. The capacity of this scale is 5000g/176oz/11lbs. That's more than enough max weight for the average family meal.
I have so many recipes to try now that I have my new Ozeri Digital Scale! My husband recently went on a diet plan so he is excited about using this scale to portion his meals too! I highly recommend. 5/5

You can purchase this scale on sale for $34.95 on Amazon.

Remember to keep electronics away from the scale that can cause electromagnetic interference such as cell phones :)

McCormick Grill Mates Burger Bash

"Happy Grillin' with McCormick Grill Mates!"
Its that time of the year again.  Nice summer sun, fun water activities, and a great time to socialize while eating tasty foods. So bring out your grills (in my case I need to buy a new one :) ) Time to get our grill on!
One of my favorite types of foods to grill are burgers so I was super excited to try out these 3 selective seasonings and spices to create three types of burgers. The Grill Mates Classic Burger, Applewood BBQ Burger, and Mushroom & Onion Cheeseburger.
Included was extra steak sauces & spices to create Grill Mates steaks which I will definitely have to try out another weekend!
First we had to prepare the meat mixture. Simply mix 1lb of ground beef and Seasoning Mix until well blended. Shape into patties. For the Mushroom & Onion Cheeseburger you need to heat oil in a large skillet on medium-high heat. Add the mushrooms and onion; cook and stir 4 to 5 minutes or until tender. Set side.
I made 4 patties of the Applewood BBQ Burger.
I made 3 patties of the Mushroom & Onion Burger.

I knew this one would be a hit with the kiddos so I made 6 patties of the Grill Mates Classic Burger.

The meats are prepared so now the fun part... Now to get my flippin' on!
Looking good, almost done...
Of course cooking burgers is not complete until you combo them with potato fries! Also added Mac & Cheese as a side too!
With the added cheese, pickles, lettuce, & ketchup. Now its time to eat!
Everyone loved the Classic Burger. It was full of flavor. You could taste the seasoning with every bite! Another hit was the Applewood Burger. I personally loved this one. Great blend of spices and sweetness. The Mushroom & Onion Cheeseburger was good as well I do not prefer mushrooms & onions so the men enjoyed this one.
No left overs, it was all gone in a flash and the kids were back at playing :)
Simply easy to make and I will be using McCormick Grill Mates again in the near future! There are more recipes from McCormick Grill Mates to try out.
How often do you grill in the summertime?
