5 Easy Ritz-wiches Perfect for Spring!

Snack time is upon us! As spring break draws to a close, and we embark on the last remaining portion of the school year before the blissful summer time, I think it's time to think about...SNACK TIME! I got inspired to think about some clever Ritz-wich ideas when I was shopping in my Portland Albertson's store.

There are some clever ways to stack it up with RITZ! So I wanted to share some really tasty spring time themed Ritz-wiches with you and hopefully give you some ideas to #stackitup for your next snack time!

The one that I recently learned about I always get rave reviews about when I serve it up is the Mango Salsa-Cream Cheese Ritz-wich.

Here's what you'll need -

Albertsons' Signature Farms Fresh Made Mango Salsa
Cream Cheese
Ritz Crackers

So take two Ritz crackers, slather one with some cream cheese, top it off with a bit of the mango salsa, and then STACK IT UP! Top it with your second Ritz cracker. VOILA. Some tasty snack time action for ANY TIME of the day.

I was thinking about some other flavor combos that just cry out SPRING TIME.

Here's a few others -

Sweet Bri Ritz-wich

I discovered this amazing combination recently and it's also another snack that gets rave reviews!

What you need -
Raspberry Preserves
Brie Cheese
RITZ Crackers - OF COURSE!

Easy and simple recipe - simply spread a little raspberry preserves onto your Ritz cracker. Slice of a small piece of brie cheese. You can have it as an open faced Ritz-wich or top it off with another Ritz to make it a complete Ritzwich. Either way, I'm convinced you will enjoy it.

Pepper Jelly & Cheese Ritz-wich

What You'll Need

Tabasco Pepper Jelly
Cream Cheese
Ritz Crackers

This is also a really good combination. The pepper jelly isn't as hot as you may think, more sweet with a bit of a kick. So top your Ritz cracker with cream cheese and then dollop a bit of pepper jelly on top. VOILA! And awesome RITZ-wich for your snacking delight!

PB & Cranberry Ritz-WICH.

What You'll Need

Peanut Butter
Dried Cranberries
Ritz Crackers

Spread on a layer of peanut butter on your Ritz cracker. Top it off with a few dried cranberries. I suggest having this one open-faced!

And my last one -

Turkey Club Ritz-WICH
Turkey Slices
Bacon (cut up, already cooked)

There is so much potential for amazing when you are working with Ritz crackers! This one is perfect for snacks for a small gathering, just cook up some bacon first. First dollop some mayo onto a cracker and take a small piece of bacon and fold it up into the turkey and then put it on top of your Ritz cracker. Top it off with another Ritz and you have a turkey club Ritzwich!

What I love about putting together great snacks like these is that everyone will want to join in on this action! And that's bringing everyone together and I think that's really awesome. That's what Ritz does! It's bringing us all together.

How do you #StackItUp with Ritz?

Vitamin C Serum - Add This To Your Morning Beauty Routine [Review and Giveaway]

What is your morning (or evening) beauty routine? For me, I'm usually so tired at night that if I remember to wash my face, it's an enormous deal. But in the morning, I pay so much more attention to my skin. I always put on coconut oil of some kind, but lately, I've been adding a new addition to my routine - Vitamin C Serum.

I've heard about the benefits of using a Vitamin C Serum for a while now and jumped at the chance to try it out and see the kind of impact this had on my skin.

I have been using the Amara Organics Vitamins C Serum 20% (with Vitamin E and Hydraulic Acid) Serum for a couple of weeks now. One thing that stood out to me was how gentle this was on my skin. It wasn't harsh at all. I use it daily each morning and follow it up with  a moisturizer.

Vitamin C Serum is supposed to reduce signs of aging. I'm only 28 so I'm not sure that I have a lot of evidence of aging to worry about just yet. This is also supposed to brighten skin, repair damage…

Lotus Foods Rice Review and Giveaway


I tend to eat quite a bit of rice in my diet. First, because it's a healthy grain. Plus, I'm also gluten-free and it's a good grain for me to have that won't negatively impact my body.
So I usually purchase one particular type of rice brand, so I was really eager for the chance to try out a new kind. I tried out rice by Lotus Foods. You may have seen them in the store or heard of them before! 
What makes Lotus Foods different? Well they work towards improving the lives of the farmers they work with first of all. They use what is called a "System of Rice Intensification." It's a way of allowing farms to "double and triple their yields while using 80-90% less seed, 50% less water, less or no chemical inputs." Basically, more rice, less water. So I tend to be a visual learner, so if you want to know more about what this means, watch this really short video below:

They also partner with small scale farmers, which I think is amazing and I really …

Crazy Richards Peanut Butter Review & Giveaway

I absolutely love peanut butter. Really, I mean peanut butter is such a huge part of my diet. And you know, I really appreciate when peanut butter has simple ingredients. Peanuts. Salt. And that's it. I don't like added oils and I'm not TOO big of a fan of flavored peanut butters. Although I'd never turn down chocolate peanut butter (if I found the right blend!).
Anyways, I had the chance to try out some peanut butter by a company called, "Crazy Richards." Crazy Richard's Peanut Butter has been around a while. It was formed and combined by two Richards about 30 years ago and was recently passed along to the newest generation.
Well, I got the chance to try out their peanut butter - creamy and crunchy. I loved it. Here's a weird thing I love with peanut butter - whole milk vanilla Greek yogurt with blueberries! Sure people put peanut butter in smoothies, but I scoop out some of my favorite vanilla greek yogurt into a cup and put it in the freezer with …
