Slow Cooker BBQ Apple Bacon Chicken Recipe

BBQ Apple Bacon Chicken

I originally found this recipe on Six Sisters’ Stuff, but have also seen different variations like the one on Wellness Momma. I have made this meal many times, slightly different each time and it always comes out great. I am a bit of a rule breaker when it comes to recipes, whatever I have on hand-I use, and I am often substituting for what I don’t have.

Bacon Wrapped Crock Pot Chicken

Step one gather all your ingredients. My go to basics are boneless skinless chicken breast, bacon, apples, and BBQ sauce. One lemon juiced if you have it and a teaspoon of garlic if you are a garlic lover.

I had frozen diced apples (from when they were on sale), chicken, bacon, and half a bottle of BBQ sauce. I didn’t have lemons so I just omitted that this time and substituted for a 1/4 cup of water swished around in my BBQ sauce bottle. (The children preferred the grated apples over the diced apples.)

Step two layer or just dump all the ingredients into the slow cooker then set it and forget it! Just kidding I have always wanted to say that..anyone remember those infomercials? If you forget it, you will probably remember when it starts smelling like something is cook and you know you haven’t been in the kitchen so maybe, fingers crossed, the hubby has brought home dinner, and you get up to investigate and your nose leads you to your crock pot full of yummy BBQ-bacon-chicken goodness. (I usually just pat myself on the back and say thank goodness I remember to start this in the morning.)

Any who, if you are a lot better at time management and memory than I, you can set your slow cooker to low for 6-8 hours or high for 3-4 hours.

BBQ Apple Bacon Chicken Recipe

Ingredients

  • 3-4 boneless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup BBQ sauce
  • 1-2 apples, peeled and grated/diced
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 6-8 slices bacon

Directions:
1. In small bowl, combine BBQ sauce with grated/diced apple, garlic powder, and lemon juice.
2. Wrap 2 pieces of bacon around each chicken breast. Place chicken breasts in base of crock pot, pour BBQ/apple mixture over the chicken.  Set to low and cook for 6-8 hours or high for 3-4 hours.

Serve with your families favorite sides and enjoy!

Organize and Personalize with Kidecals Review & Giveaway 9/12-9/26

KidecalsReview&Giveaway

 

When Kidecals contacted me to review their products I was very excited! After looking at their site I found so many labels, awesome keyboard stickers, chalkboard labels, and door bell stick-ons that I fell in love with. I was already planning my art cabinet, game closet, and pantry organization, and how I would label all the kids stuff-a little overboard-okay way overboard, but really their products are just that awesome! I found their site 100% user-friendly and really loved how easy it was to customize the labels to fit my personality and need.

kidecalssiteMyKidecalPicsonSite

 

I decided on the necessities and went with the super versatile chalkboard label thin plaques and the pretty leaves round labels. When they arrived I was so excited about all the possibilities! I started by labeling all our families water bottles. Then I had this awesome idea for a Chore and Treat jar. The idea behind the jars is when I catch the kids doing something kind for someone else I will reward them for their good deed, if I catch them doing the opposite then they will get a chore. And let me just tell you now-this is working! It is working better than I ever imagined. I especially love how Caydence has a better understanding of good behaviors verses bad ones. She is really working to see how she can help someone around the house. The one rule I had to make clear was that you can’t ask for a treat if you do something. The act you do must come from your heart.

If you could use a little back to school organization in your house hop on over to Kidecals and check out all the great options they have like the ones below. They are also perfect for labeling the kids sports gear, lunch supplies, and backpacks. They even have these awesome left and right shoe stickers to help kids dress themselves.

Truthful Thursdays #TT

 

Truthful Thursdays

Where I will share my truths as a Mother & Stepmother.

My truths for today.

  1. First of all in remembrance of all the victims of 9/11 may you rest in peace and may your families continue to heal and grow in your legacy. To all the soldiers who have and continue to put your lives on the line for my families freedom, I want to say thank you for your sacrifice and for your families. Today I thought about the morning of Sept. 11th and all the emotions I felt that day as a 7th grader. Then I thought about when I heard President Bush say we will not let them get away with what they have done. The next memory I have is watching our armed forces bomb the terrorist and feeling like justice was served and it was over. I got back to my life, high school, college, and then raising my family. But now as an adult in reality it wasn’t over for all those families who lost someone on 9/11-they have had to live with the pain every single day since. It wasn’t over for all the men and women who vowed to fight to protect their country and sacrificed years of their lives or their lives to protect us. And it’s still not over and I can’t be certain it ever will be. Days like today make you remember you how precious life is and how many things you just can’t take for granted. 
  2. I am solo this week with the kiddos as Rey is working out of town, and I apologize for the late night posts. Anyone’s partner work out of town regularly? How do you deal with being solo? I know I wouldn’t be able to without my crock-pot and late night silence. Reyrey'sFirstSack
  3. LittleManontheLoose A few awesome milestones and accomplishments this week! Reyrey had his first sack of the season this past Saturday-very proud moment as we all saw the biggest smile ever on his face! The little man can now open doors-great for him…trouble for me. Julie received all A’s and B’s on her report card on Friday-she is doing so awesome in school. Sadie has learned to count to 100 and did it officially for her teacher-she is so proud of herself as I am so proud of her! Caydence is really learning how the treat and chore jars work which is awesome because it is helping her see she can control her behavior and earn what she wants. What are you or your children’s milestones/accomplishments this week?

These are my truths of the week, I hope you share yours!

Have a great weekend!

Fairy Tales Lice Good-Bye® Survival Kit Review and Giveaway 9/10-9/24

 

 I was sent this product in return for an honest review. Fairy Tales Lice Good-Bye® Survival Kit Review Giveaway

While on the hunt for great products to review for the Fall in to Green Living blog hop I stumbled upon the Fairy Tales company and fell in love with their mission. Since 1999 they have been committed to helping communities fight lice naturally. Since their Rosemary Repel® – the first line of natural hair care products  proven to help prevent head lice using organic herbs, they have been working to help bring safe products to parents for their children. They offered to send me the Lice Good-Bye Survival Kit and I happily agreed because after reading up on lice I learned there are 12 million cases a year and a majority of these cases occur among children ages 3 to 12 years old (source). It’s safe to say I may face a case or two of lice before Ezra turns 12, and I would hate to not have their amazing all-natural, safe treatment on hand.

Fairy Tales Lice Good-Bye® Survival Kit

 

Fairy Tales Lice Good-Bye® Survival Kit is a must-have for all families with children. The kit contains everything you need to eliminate lice and stubborn nits naturally and effectively.

Kit Includes:

  • the leading 4oz. Lice Good-Bye® natural lice treatment
  • the #1 metal Terminator Nit-Free removal comb
  • an Easy-Grip sectioning clip
  • 4 oz. Rosemary Repel® Conditioning Spray

I found that they wrap the treatment in a plastic seal to prevent leaking, which is very thoughtful of them. I love that it is made from herbs as opposed to being chemicals because that means no worries for me. The terminator nit-free comb is #1 and I can feel why-I ran it through my hair and it works extremely well at finely sifting through the hair, plus it is very well made and sturdy. The easy grip sectioning clip would really help separate long hair you have combed while treating your child. The smell of this conditioning spray is wonderful! I am going to use this on the girls hair as a prevention tool daily.

If your child suffers from allergies, these products are free of common allergens like nuts, soy, dairy, and gluten.
You can purchase Fairy Tales  products and their other hair care products where professional hair care products are sold. You can also purchase them online via their website – they have free standard shipping on all orders over $29.95.  You can also use the code BESTFAN2014 at check out to receive 15% off.

Thanks to Fairy Tales you can enter to win the same kit I am happy to have on hand in case I ever need it!

#DropYourPants for #Underwareness with Depend

Many thanks to Depend for sponsoring today’s story and encouraging people to #dropyourpants for #underwareness.

#DropYourPants for  #Underwareness with Depends

If you would have told me 6 years ago, I would have 2 step children and 3 children of my own and have to deal with incontinence after birth (in other words, leaking…yep, leaking) I wouldn’t believe you. I would have said that only happens to old people. Well guess what I ain’t old and it happened! Birth and pregnancy can do many things to your body and incontinence is one of them. I remember the first two weeks after I had Ezra, my third child, how bad it was. When I would laugh till it hurt or sneeze, or cough unexpectedly. I was so embarrassed, I kept thinking what is wrong with my body this should not be happening. When in reality it is so normal and happens to everyone, except no one ever talks about it. I wish I had the Depend Underwear with Fit-Flex protection they would have made life so much easier! My doctor recommended kegel exercises as much as possible and discreet products like Depend in the mean time. Kegels are not something you can really remember to do everyday, but they really do help.  Depend is offering a free sample below for all of my readers. Depend is on a mission to help being awareness to this issue and they have an awesome way you can help, find out more below.

 Depend-Silhouette-Briefs-for-Womer

Schwan’s Home Delivery Review

 This is a sponsored post on behalf of Schwan’s and U.S. Family Guide via a $25 gift card. logo

 

 A few weeks ago I introduced you all to Schwan’s Home Delivery Service in this post. I ordered a few products to  try and can’t wait to share our yummy picks and what I learned about Schwan’s.

This is what I ordered:

IMAG1414

Gourmet Twist Pretzels

The Gourmet Twist Pretzels were such a fun, quick snack for the kids-they absolutely loved them! I love how quickly I can prepare them, how fresh they are, and that they can be customized with the salt or cinnamon sugar.
Onion Rings

The Onion Rings they were so thick, crispy, and sweet!! Mmm..now I want some! The older kids, Rey, and myself couldn’t get enough of these. We did notice they were a tad shy on the salt which is a good thing unless your are the kids because they love salty foods.

Oven Baked Chicken BreastThe Oven Baked Chicken was so delicious! The coating was seasoned perfectly and the chicken had just the right balance of moisture. Rey said these would be perfect for chicken sandwiches next time..hint hint next time is the approval to keep ordering from Schwan’s! YAY! 

Schwan's Bacon

I really enjoyed the Thick Cut Bacon because it was so fresh and flavorful. It was also a the perfect thickness for wrapping chicken breast, with eggs or pancakes, and it adds great flavor to our morning burritos, too.

 I was able to save $10 off my order of $50 or more, which was a great savings.

I used to think Schwan’s was an ice cream truck, but they have so much more than ice cream to offer. The things I learned about Schwan’s really changed the way I think about them. They have coupons! YES, Coupons! To help busy moms like you and I who could use an extra hand keeping the food on the table while doing the million other things we have to do. They also have specials and hot deals which are picked especially for you based on what you have bought. Awesome right, you can save on things that your family likes.

They also offer a rewards program and you can earn points on every purchase you make then use those point on your next purchase. If you are an AARP member you will save even more with Schwan’s and earn double rewards, so cool right!? I can’t wait to tell my grandma about this!

Our delivery man was on time, very helpful, and was able to answer all my questions.

My Readers Save on Your First Order at Schwan’s Home Service!

Better Life Review and Giveaway
My first product in the Fall into Green Living giveaway hop is a Better Life cleaning bundle. I reached out to them and was so happy to hear that they couldn’t wait to be apart of this great blog hop featuring green and natural products. They sent me the starter kit with microfiber cleansing cloths. I was so thrilled when it arrived because I had a house to clean before we had guest over for our Frozen Birthday Party.
The Better Life company was founded by two dad’s who like me worried about the safety of traditional cleaners around their little ones. They strive to make products that are a standard in safety and work better than anything out there.
Better Life Review This kit was just what I needed to clean my house from top to bottom plus I didn’t have to waste a roll of paper towels to do so. I also didn’t have to wait till nap time or bed time to clean because these products are all natural and safe for use around the kids. Which is great because our kids love to help clean.
 Now a little bit about what I received.
  • what-EVER! Clary Sage & Citrus-This cleaner seriously cleans what-ever! I used it to clean the kitchen, the bathroom, the laundry room, all furniture, and the walls. I even used it on the kids toys and the car! The scent was soft and clean. It can even be used on the laundry!
  • Simply Floored! I used this on our kitchen and bathroom floors the scent was so amazingly fresh. I love that I get to ditch the bucket and squirt it directly on the floor then mop.
  • Even The Kitchen Sink-I loved this for getting down to the nitty gritty caked on dirty areas of the house. It worked wonders on the stove, oven, baths, and showers.
  • I Can See Clearly, WOW!-I love using this with the glass and polishing microfiber cloth. It works like magic, no streaks. I loved using it on my mirrors, windows, and glass.
  • Six Compartment Tote-I loved using this to carry all my products and cloths from room to room. It really makes cleaning so much easier.
  • Scrubbing Mircrofiber (dark blue)-I really loved this scrubbing cloth it helped me clean all the areas I needed a little extra muscle.
  • General Purpose Mircrofiber (green)-This cloth is a must have because it can absorb so much. This cloth helped me clean all the areas I would normally waste paper towels on.
  • Glass and polishing microfiber (light blue)-This is the magic cloth I used with the glass that leaves no streaks.

I loved how big the each bottle is and feel you really get your moneys worth. I also washed all the cloths after I used them and they were like new and worked just as well as before.

Thanks to Better Life you can enter to win the same kit I am in love with!

A Frozen Birthday Party for a Frozen Queen

 This post contains affiliate links which means once you click a link if you make a purchase my family and I will receive a percentage of your purchase. We thank you in advance for your support. Frozen Birthday Party

For those of you who have been around for a while, you know I like throwing the kids birthday parties at home with family because I really enjoy the baking and decorating that goes into making their day special. The last party was for a special girl who is a BIG fan of Frozen and an aspiring Elsa wana be! She was dead set on a Frozen party from the minute we came out of the movie theater after watching it for the first time. So naturally I went to work planning on Pinterest and had tons of ideas pinned! Below are all the ideas that made the final cut and helped make her day special.

Frozen Party3

What’s a party without balloons and streamers? She loves balloons so I knew we needed balloons! I used the balloons and streamers to help decorate and give that birthday party feel when you walk into the house. I also used this awesome Elsa and Ana Stand Up from Birthday Express as well. This stand up was such a big hit at the party as you will see later. Most of these party supplies came from Birthday Express because they have a great selection of supplies as well as great coupon codes. Their delivery was also right on schedule and they helped make our party a memorable day.

Frozen Party2

Frozen Party1

If you have seen my previous parties I love making the dipped pretzel rods which are so easy and dipped marshmallows. The best part is you can customized them to fit any party theme. Those cute mugs my mom found at the Disney Store and they really tie the treats into the theme. I ordered this awesome Party Fountain from Amazon for our party. This fountain added a magical feel and elegance to the party. All the kids enjoyed filling their own cups and watching the juice flow threw.

Frozen Birthday Cake

 The idea for the cake came from Pinterest and I just loved making it! I used a blue velvet cake on the inside and a homemade vanilla buttercream for the icing. I made a blue rock candy for the icicles and for the mountains I used the left over candy melts from the pretzels. The figures came from the Disney Store.

Frozen Party

Here was another treat and alternate drink station. More pretzels and marshmallow pops because they do disappear quickly. I also served that Froze Ice (blue ice candy), Olaf noses (carrots), and Olaf arms (pretzel sticks). I also make snowflake sugar cookies topped with icing and a blue covered chocolate candy which also were gone in the blink of an eye. Those cute crown lollipops you see displayed came from the amazing Birthday Express.

Frozen Birthday Photo Opp

The stand up was a real hit at the party. Everyone loved getting their picture taken with Elsa and Ana-Ahem some more than others as you can see below.

photo (19)

Caydence’s costume and wig, came from Birthday Express and her Frozen Elsa’s Jewelry Set came from Amazon. She LOVES playing dress up and singing and dancing on the ottoman. I even did her make up like Elsa for her special day.

Frozen Queen

It was such a perfect day for our little Frozen Queen! Thank you so much to ALL our family and friends who joined us in helping make her day amazing. Thank you so much to Birthday Express for the 50% off review code and Hallmark for the invites, birthday card, and thank you cards.

You can find all the Frozen birthday party supplies I used here at Birthday Express.

Truthful Thursdays #TT

 

Truthful Thursdays

Where I will share my truths as a Mother & Stepmother.

My truths for today.

  1. Whew! What a week so far! With the holiday I was completely off, but finally it’s starting to slow down a little. This week I have been reflecting on my role as a mother in our family. I stumbled upon this as we talked to our oldest in the family about his role in the family. Rey used the idea of a team and compared that to how our family works I loved it-it just made so much sense because he is playing football. What is your role in your family?
  2. Tonight I put the kids to bed a little later than usual because I just couldn’t put down the book we were reading! Anyone else have this issue? The kids really didn’t want me to either. We are now on the 4th book in the Lemony Snicket, A Series of Unfortunate Events. What books are you or your kid(s) into right now? 
  3. This week is parent-teacher conferences and I am meeting with all of the kid’s teachers tomorrow. I am hoping for some great ideas to help them more at home, and a better understanding of what they are doing in class. What do you go into parent-teacher conferences looking forward too?

These are my truths of the week, I hope you share yours!

Have a great Friday and an even better weekend!
