Stubb's Barbecue Sauce - Excellent Sauces for Cooking! [Review]



I had the opportunity to review some barbecue sauce by Stubb's BBQ sauce. Well, you've likely seen this sauce in the store and if you have ever wondered what it was like, well I hope I can convince you to try it. This is good stuff.

Did you know there's a pretty cool story behind the sauce? Well, C.B. Stubblefield (or also known as Stubb's) got his first chance at cooking for other people as a "mess sargeant in the US Army." After the Army, he moved to Lubbock, Texas, where he created the official Stubb's Legendary Bar-B-Q. It wasn't long until his restaurant and food and sauce drew a following. In the 80s, he moved his restaurant to Austin, Texas, and his restaurant became a famous stomping ground for celebrities, singers, and even presidents. When he went to perform on the David Letterman show, he handed out the sauce and told Letterman it was made from "Love and happiness." I paraphrased a lot of this story so I highly recommend you read it in full by checking out their website.

This has always been one of my go to sauces, and only partly because it's gluten-free. It actually tastes really good. In fact, I'm not usually an enormous fan of barbecue sauce (usually it's too sweet and I am SUCH a ketchup fan). But this sauce is one I love having with chicken dinners. It makes it taste...AMAZING. I love it for dipping and it's just so good.

I've tried a couple - Spicy and Sweet Heat. I am such a huge sucker for really spicy foods. I love the spicy flavor of this BBQ sauce. The sweet heat is amazing for cooking up barbecue because it combines the spicy quality and then also the sweetness that you may expect from barbecue sauce. It's just a good combination of flavors.

Not to mention, Stubb's has SO much more than just barbecue sauce! They have marinades, rubs, cookin' sauces and even wing sauce. Also, I have a few great tips for grilling for you provided to me by Stubb’s. I know most us usually for the standard staple of the grill - hot dogs and burgers. But think about adding in Stubb’s to your recipes! Like “Boosted burgers” and coat your patty’s with Stubb’s Bar-B-Q Ruband sprinkle with seasoned salt before cooking. Check out this recipe if you need ideas. 

Do something amazing with your grilling by mixing in your favorite hot sauce with Stubb’s Original or their Sticky Sweet Bar-B-Sauce, heat them both up in a pan and then add the hot sauce. Try out this recipe if you need ideas.

This is the time of year that I think is so fun for cooking and trying recipes (without any heat, I'm so much more motivated to try new things!) and so I'm really encouraging you to try out Stubb's BBQ sauce next time you are in the store. You can like them on Facebook, and Twitter. And make sure you check out their website for recipe ideas. Also, you can purchase their products online  or in a store near you. 

I received the above products in exchange for my honest review.

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 …
