Peanut Butter Recipe Round Up [Plus a Giveaway!] #SantaCruzOrganic #Recipes

Anyone else really excited about this time of year? I swear I get so much more inspired to try new recipes and things like that when the weather gets cooler and all these fun holidays start coming up!

So I had the chance to try out some of Santa Cruz Organic's amazing peanut butter and fruit spreads and I can't wait to share some great recipe ideas with you guys!

Santa Cruz Organics is really one of my favorite brands of peanut butter. It's organic and I love the fact that the ingredients are really healthy, no strange oils or added sugars. This means so much to me as I really strive to eat healthy. Plus it just makes for a better experience, especially if you use peanut butter in a recipe.

Amazingly enough Santa Cruz Organic doesn't JUST offer peanut butter, they have over 60 organic items  ranging from fruit juices, lemonades to sauces, syrups and fruit spreads. Isn't that amazing? Plus, it's also Non-GMO Project Verified. That's VERY important to me as well!

And if that doesn't inspire you to purchase some Santa Cruz Organic Peanut Butter, I am circling together a few recipes from really awesome bloggers that will really wake up your taste buds. Check these out (some of these make for REALLY good Halloween treat ideas!!) -

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cracker Bark

Chatham Hall's famous Monster Cookies (with a gluten-free adaptation!)

Peanut Butter Cup Cheesecake

Smore Peanut Butter Cookie Cake

Creamy Peanut Butter Ice Cream

Peanut Butter and Jelly Thumbprint Cookies

Small Batch Healthy Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Crispy Peanut Butter Almond Bark Cookies

Easy No Cook Peanut Butter Thai Salad

Don't these recipes sound amazing??? I thought you may like these! The peanut butter, fruit spreads, and also their apple sauce are such classic lunch time foods. I love that their fruit sauces, such as this apple sauce I had recently is completely sugar free! I'm not a huge fan of apple sauce on it's own actually, but this I enjoyed. Plus I've also used apple sauce as a sugar replacement in recipes in makes for such a great gentle sweet taste and also adds in a nice texture to recipes.

I'm very happy to announce that I get to giveaway a prize package which includes Santa Cruz Organic Peanut Butter, Fruit Spread and Fruit Sauce to one lucky winner!

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 …
