#StreamTeam October Mystery Month features on @Netflix_CA

For many kids, October is the most mysterious month of the year, so what better time to get your family playing detective or solving a riddle! Following clues and discovering answers is a great way for kids to learn, taking a potentially boring subject and making it interesting. Just look at what Blue’s Clues does, for example. Little kids will love following the clues, and learning through sleuthing with the help of our themed titles this month. And, big kids will get into the ‘spirit’ with our list of spoooooky and mysterious titles.

Recipe of the Day: The simplest most delicious fried chicken nuggets you'll ever make

Wednesday, October 15, 2014



Since Blue Goose chicken breast is on sale at Sobeys I bought some today and made a quick meal.   Make it chicken sandwich but really all you need is the chicken and spelt bread crumbs.

It's really quick.  It's really yummy even though I fry them.  I haven't cooked these in the oven as I am usually trying to throw something quickly but I will try cooking them in the oven tomorrow and let you know-okay? :)

What you need:

~ Chicken Breast or thighs ( I use both and prefer the brand Blue Goose)

~ Spelt Bread Crumbs from ShaSha Bread company

~ Garlic powder

~ Herbs of your choice ( I use a mix of thyme, pepper, A.Vogel Herbamare and a dash of Himalayan Sea Salt)

~ Coconut oil or Ghee for frying

The night before you can soak the chicken in the buttermilk but really all I do is get the pan ready, season the chicken, slice and I mix the spelt flour with some garlic powder.
Do I measure?  No...I am more of a eye it kind of gal.  I sprinkle the spelt bread crumbs on a plate add maybe a teaspoon of garlic powder to it and mix it up.   Season to your taste or your kids taste-heck don't even feel you have to season it.  Just chicken and the spelt bread crumbs is great.  I crush the bread crumbs a little in my hand as I pour it on the plate for the chicken.

Fry the chicken in bite size pieces and you have simple, tasty chicken nuggets.  I like my nuggets with honey personally ;)  and enjoy.  You have a quick meal, yes it's fried but coconut oil a good healthy oil.  Kids love chicken fingers/nuggets and this is crispy and yummy and you can skip the egg and flour.

Disclosure: This is not a sponsored post.  I just love Blue Goose, ShaSha bread company and A.Vogel products.

Say Bye Bye stinky diapers with @PlaytexInfant Diaper Genie Activated Carbon #MomTrust

Tuesday, October 14, 2014

As you know I have double the fun and double the diapers with my Twincesses.  Well things were getting a little super stinky around here and thankfully Playtex got wind of it(hahaha) and sent me their Diaper Genie Activated Charcoal.

If you gasp or even have to hold your breath when you open the door to your diaper genie or any other diaper container this will make you breathe happy again and no more gagging! I swear.

Product Information: Diaper Genie now with new activated carbon refill made with safe, natural activated carbon that locks in odour molecules rather than just masking odour with fragrance. Can be used throughout the nursery or anywhere you want to eliminate odours. 

I can say I don't have to hold my breath anymore and I can open the bathroom door and not smell a stinky diaper.  This works too if you happen to use cloth diapers.  You can use it anywhere.

Where to buy? Find it at your local Toys R Us, Walmart etc....

Bugaboo meet Diesel. Diesel meet Bugaboo. A perfect collaboration. Arriving in November '14 #BeBrave

Monday, October 13, 2014

Gone are the days to blend into the background. This November, mobility brand Bugaboo will launch the first result of the three-year collaboration with iconic lifestyle brand Diesel, introducing a creative and fashionable take on parenting. The eye-catching collection with stunning details will let your new born trooper stand out from the crowd. 

With twins at home I am all but too familiar with the state of the below ad. My living room all though not as chic looks like this daily.  






















Remember the fancy cocktail party last month featuring the latest from Bugaboo?  Well here is my second post from that fabulous night and seeing the Bugaboo Cameleon a la Dieselfied which in my opinion is a piece of fashion that meets function when it comes to stroller design.  It's crazy the level of design Bugaboo has taken it to with Diesel.  I love the colours-perfect khaki green for a Fall/November launch.    

The first Bugaboo by Diesel collection comes with a line of unique accessories that not only perfectly fit the Bugaboo Cameleon3 by Diesel, but add a touch of rebellion to Bugaboo’s entire product family as the accessories can be used on all strollers. The Bugaboo by Diesel Seat Liner and parasol feature a camouflage style and include the iconic Diesel badge ‘Only The Brave’ as does the Bugaboo by Diesel Footmuff that also includes a special pocket for extra functionality. With the Bugaboo by Diesel accessories, you are really born to #BeBrave.

The beauty is in the details
With the Bugaboo Cameleon3 by Diesel it’s all about an abundance of surprising details; each time you look you’ll spot something different. The statement stroller comes with a dark green anodized chassis, an all-over green canvas with sophisticated black and brown contrast elements and a soft comfortable interior finish. The wheels include Diesel’s iconic logo.
The stroller carries handy pockets, has a faux leather handlebar and carry handle, and includes a central joint cap that is topped off with a gold metal combat star.
The extended sun canopy partially made of special mash fabric, a complementary camouflage printed mosquito net and the many other details ready to discover give this limited edition Bugaboo Cameleon3 that true Diesel spirit.


Awake your inner rebel
