I was floored when I was offered the opportunity to become a part of this very "elite" group of bloggers and reviewers. When I was approached, I thought of all the amazing products that I buy for my family and there was no way I could pass this up. Because this being my first post with them(yes NEWBIE) I wanted to make sure I listed above all the fantastic names associated with the product and company.
The very first box I received I was given kind of a sneak of the possible products but not actually told what I was receiving(I LOVE SURPRISES). Knowing I would receive 5 to 6 products to review I decided to start looking at ideas of how to start this companionship and ...here is how (recipes)
I decided to start with the Black Label Maple Black Pepper Thick Cut Bacon (Hormel)-*coupon in link* and whip up some stuffed Jalapenos:
Preheat over to 425.
1 block cream cheese (room temp)
1/2 cup shredded cheese (I use Pub Cheese 1 TBS its sharp)
*mix cheeses together*
10 Jalapenos(split and seeded )
Bacon (I cut mine in half gives you 20 pieces)
Lined cookie sheet take the split in half jalapeno fill with cheese mixture(dont overfill), wrap with bacon and placed on cookie sheet till you have all filled and placed. Place in oven for 15-17 min or desired crispness, take out and let cool for 1 minute. Plate and enjoy!!
**Super easy recipe and perfect for those who like some heat:)**
Because it contained more products(and it is my bedtime) I will post another recipe tomorrow. Thank you to Hormel and look forward to a long prosperous relationship:)

I had the privilege of working with Exceptional Sheets on many campaigns but this one was far different. I was offered a new King or Queen size mattress from eluxurysupply.com in exchange for my review (the video was just because).** All opinions are 100% my own and receipt of product NEVER promises a positive review.**
We were in the market for a new mattress as our temper-pedic had seen its usefulness but was no longer comfortable. You would climb into bed and the body indentations were overwhelming and from climbing or sitting on the edge the sides were tilted and curved. It no longer provide the support or comfort needed in a bed.
The 10" Gel Memory Foam Mattress has a 3" elux gel memory foam topper and a 7" support base all in one attached. The 3" increases air flow and more support than an average mattress. It has a 10 yr limited warranty if you are not or do not remain satisfied. No springs to poke is always a plus and it is a spot clean cover.
If you plan on ordering one which I recommend :) It arrives in a cardboard box weighing about 90 lbs :o (agreed, 90lbs ) it came via UPS and the poor guy struggled to get it from truck to hand it to me and my son who struggled to get it to house. I had it in my living room till I could get help to haul down the hall(drag, pull, push)
once plastic is removed the fun begins. It grows and opens to be a very full functional mattress that is perfect to add to your current box spring.
Thank you to eluxurysupply.com and exceptionalsheets.com for the fantastic products and many opportunities.
