Shepherd's Pie… It's what's for dinner!!

This evening (7/29) I made shepherd's pie using the Velveeta kit.  (I know I should not be eating processed foods so don't come for me)


I have been cray busy lately and I needed to cook something because we have been eating out a lot lately and it is starting to take a toll on me.

Here are my impressions:

  • The potatoes were creamy (I didn't have milk, so I used the half and half that I had in my fridge)
  • I didn't like the dehydrated veggies.
  • The Velveeta cheese was hard to spread over the meat mixture, so I had to add shredded cheese to the areas where the cheese spread didn't make it.

All in all it tasted good. I used group turkey instead of ground beef.  Next time I will just make shepherd's pie the regular way I've made it before, using real cheese, and frozen veggies instead of dehydrated ones in a box.  I am sure it will be even more tasty and healthy.  My household drinks 1% milk which would definitely have less calories than half and half.

I'm Steaming, Are You?

I started my steaming journey around Thanksgiving 2012 when I purchased my Huetiful steamer on a Black Friday sale.  I wanted to share with you some of the benefits of steaming.  
(You see that large steamer in the pic below? I will be switching to one of those really soon).

Steaming is a part of my routine and my girls routine and it will remain so.  If you steam, I hope you love it just as much as me and if you haven't steamed, give it a try.  You will DEFINITELY notice a difference.

My Favorite Conditioners

As any natural woman (or man or child for that matter) knows, the main ingredient in our vast array of routines is conditioner.  There are so many available on the market and it can be hard to choose.  Well, this post will give you some info of some of my favorites. Many are cult favorites that you may have heard of or even used before. Others are new to the market and I fell in love with them instantly.
