Your Razor’s New Best Friend!

25 Oct

I have been using, and loving Yorz razor wraps for the last two weeks. In my home, my wife and I use 4 razors at a time(2 each). To avoid mix-ups, we literally have to write our initials on the handle of the razors with a black sharpie marker. I am happy to say that writing our initials on the handle is now a thing of the past. With Yorz razor wraps, we choose our own colors and there is no more confusion.  The soft  silicone wraps come in 7 colors and are super comfortable to hold, which leads me to my next thought. No more nicks!!! I’ve cut myself so many times when the razor has slipped out of my soapy hand in the past. These wraps are so handy, they even have a soft hooked end that can hang on most shower caddies, letting excess water drip off keeping your razor dry and extending the life of the blades. Nobody likes a wet, rusty razor. These are so perfect for households that have people sharing showers- College dorms, roommate situations, families etc. With these wraps, you will never wonder which razor is YORZ again.

Yorz Razor wraps fit any disposable razor with a straight handle and retail for $4.99 each or $11.99 for a 3 pack.

Vegetarian Quinoa Chili!

15 Dec

Hey everyone, I have another recipe for you as promised. This one is a Quinoa Chili recipe I found through Pinterest and it’s delicious and VERY filling. Although it’s vegetarian, the quinoa and the beans pack it with LOTS of protein and meat lovers will not be disappointed with the taste! This recipe can also be made vegan if you use vegan sour cream and cheese or scratch them altogether.   I made it exactly as the recipe below calls for EXCEPT I doubled the amount of chili powder because I reeeeeaaally love my chili to be very chilly-y! I also added garlic salt as I do with all of my savory recipes. This tummy warming chili is absolutely perfect for the Winter and freezes well also!

Southwest Chicken Salad With Creamy Avocado Cilantro Dressing.

26 Aug

As many of you know, I love to cook- although it wasn’t always that way. I actually never really cooked up until about 5 years ago when I decided that I wanted to try more things at home.  Since then, I’ve become addicted to pinterest recipes and cooking shows as well. I share my meals on Instagram & Facebook and cook for friends often. The response has been overwhelmingly positive, which brings me to share the great news that I will now be sharing my favorite recipes on this blog. Don’t get me wrong fashion and beauty will always be my main focus, but some recipes are just too good not to share- So without further ado- here is my new favorite salad recipe!!!! I found a picture of a similar salad on Pinterest and had to recreate it!

Southwest Chicken Salad with Creamy Avocado Cilantro dressing.

Prep Time: 40 minutes 

Ingredients: 

For the Salad:

Place  romaine lettuce in a bowl- top with diced avocado, red peppers, corn, black beans, and chicken breast. Garnish with cheese.

*Romaine lettuce

*1 Avocado-diced

*1/4 Cup shredded cheese of your choice-I prefer mexican blend from Trader Joes.

*Corn on the cobb(2 ears)- Fire roasted, then cut off of the cobb.

*1 Can of black beans-drained

*1 Red pepper-fire roasted-diced.

*1 Large chicken breast-seasoned and diced.

Note: You can grill or pan cook the chicken. I used a skillet and seasoned it with cumin, hot chili powder, garlic salt, pepper and lime juice. I cooked the chicken on medium heat in about 1-2 Tbsp of olive oil and sprinkled the seasoning on both sides and squeezed lime on top.

Fire roasting; You can use a grill, Oven broiler or lay the corn & red pepper right on your(clean) stove top- YES right on the flame! (Be sure to stay close by and turn the veggies so they don’t burn)

 

For The Dressing:

Simply throw the following ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Taste dressing after adding garlic salt and pepper in intervals. (you can always add more, but can’t take away)

*2 Avocados

*1/4 cup sour cream

*1/2 Cup milk-or more depending on the consistency you prefer.

*Juice of 1 lime

*1/4 Cup Cilantro-loosely packed in a measuring cup (a small handful)

*3 Garlic Cloves chopped

*Garlic salt & Pepper-to taste

Note: This dressing would make a great dip for taquitos, southwest egg rolls, nachos- the list goes on and on. YUM!
