Luxe Home Essentials Microfiber Kitchen Dish Towels Review

Hello Bees! Today I get to share with you Microfiber Kitchen Towels from Luxe Beauty. Yay! Read below and leave a comment telling me if you like Microfiber Towels..
Luxe Home Essentials Microfiber Kitchen Towels are 15 x 26 inches in size.
Three towels per pack.
Keep these Microfiber towels on hand in your kitchen. For easy spill clean up or to towel dry your dishes. 100% machine washable. Super absorbent! They are great for any surface and they will not scratch. Lint free.

The texture of these Microfiber towels different from other Microfiber towels I've felt. Usually, I don't like Microfiber towels because the texture gets caught on my fingertips. But, these a SUPER soft! I use them all the time to dry the dishes. They are extremely durable and can hold up to 10 times their weight in water. I'd use these everywhere in the house. I'd say that they'd be great for the bathroom and laundry room as well. They are also Hypoallergenic! And, don't let your husband get ahold of these, because he will use them to towel dry the car..

Here are Gorton's Smart & Crunchy Breaded Fish Fillets. Breaded with a tasty panko. Always Crispy, NEVER Fried. Made with 100% Wild Caught Alaska Pollock. These fillets are super crunchy. The moment I took them out of the bag, I knew that they were going to be crunchier than the regular fillets. With 50% less fat and only 200 calories per fillet, you will not hate yourself after eating one. The fillets are light but filling. The fish is super tasty. Fish and seafood are natural sources of lean protein and critical nutrients like vitamins and minerals including iron, zinc and vitamins A, B and D. I really liked the fillets because they were not overly salty and they taste great!

 Here are Gorton's Fish Sticks. Let me start out by saying that I grew up eating fish sticks and I do not remember them tasting this good! The breading is crunchy, the fish is flavorful. A great finger food :) Great for kids! A great appetizer for a football game or dinner party.

Here's Gorton's Popcorn Shrimp. One of my faves. I love shrimp. Especially Popcorn Shrimp. The breading is crunchy and flavorful. The shrimp taste like shrimp. You can actually taste the shrimp. The pieces are plentiful and fulfilling. Also a great appetizer for a football game or dinner party.

Nello's Marinara Sauce Review & Photos

Southern-Crafted Premium Marinara

 Nello's Sauce was built in 2010 by Neal "Nello" and his wife Heather. They sold their first jar of sauce in January 2011 online and the first jar appeared in store June 2011! Since then, Nello's has grown rapidly and is considered one of the leading premium tomato sauce companies. The sauces are Gluten free and Vegan. The jars contain less salt than other leading sauce brands and has no high fructose corn syrup whatsoever! No sugar added, at all!

Nello's sauce is made from scratch. Handmade, and made by small batches in North Carolina. Using only the best ingredients. Including 100% cold pressed Extra Virgin Olive Oil and US grown vine-ripened tomatoes!
The sauces come in 3 flavors:
  • Marinara
  • Piedmont Pomodoro
  • Hot Pepper
Nello's is the main sauce in Plated- A DIY meal kit delivered to your door.  Nello's has just been approved to be available in another 100 stores throughout the country! They are in several hundred stores! Want to find a retailer near you? Click here.

 Classic red sauce but with a rich unadulterated tomato, garlic, and herb palate. Perfectly balanced. Inspired by Nello's great-grandmother, Angelina, of Carife, Italy. Serve with traditional pasta and baked dishes. 14oz and 25oz.

Vine-Ripened U.S-Grown Tomatoes, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Sea Salt, Garlic, Black Pepper, Basil, Naturally Derived Citric Acid.
My 2 1/2 year old loving his Spaghetti and Sauce. He had THREE dishes!
My homemade Chicken Parmigiana with Nello's Marinara Sauce
My Thoughts:
I could not wait to open a jar, smell the sauce, and then stick a spoon in the jar to have a taste. After hearing about Nello's and becoming a Mombassador, I couldn't wait to taste the sauces. The Marinara blew me away! I couldn't believe how delicious and flavorful the sauce is! My husband told me that it is by far the best jarred sauce he has ever had! And, I couldn't agree more. My son loved it as well. Having 3 dishes at dinner time. He was completely covered in sauce and spaghetti!
You can really taste the freshness of the ingredients. The tomatoes that are used are fresh. You would never tell that the sauce was made with no sugar added. It has a little bit of a sweetness and very savory.  I can tell that this sauce was made with love. You can tell that Neal "Nello" has a passion for his sauces and for the brand. The quality speaks for itself. The sauce is worth every penny.

I'd recommend using this sauce on homemade pizzas. A great marinara for mozzarella sticks and/or calzones. Or, if you are like me, right out of the jar :)

Keep checking back.. more great stuff to come! Find out everything HERE!I will keep you up to date on everything from new store launches and new sauce flavors!

Written On Her Heart Ebook Review

Andi Callaway has dreamed of becoming a published author her entire life.

Ford Delaney has always wanted nothing more than to escape his past.
An opportunity of a lifetime. This is what Andi finds when she returns home to Callaway Cove on summer break. A chance to work for her literary idol Ford Delaney is up for grabs, and she’s willing to risk everything—her boyfriend, her best friends, and her education—to get it.

She’s positive this will be the key to reaching her dreams. But the moment she begins working for the reclusive author, Andi realizes there’s more to him than just a name. As attraction builds between Andi and Ford, she begins to discover consequences must come hand-in-hand with something great—which could loosen control over her tightly wound life. And once romantic sparks fly, Andi's other relationships start to crumble, Ford’s fame comes back to haunt him, and the heat they generate will either forge a powerful, enduring love or threaten everything she holds dear.

In this romance, Rion delivers drama and sexual tension without graphic love scenes. Written On Her Heart will delight romance fans of new adult, young adult, and contemporary romance readers, alike.
My Thoughts:
I really enjoyed reading this book. I read all of its 374 pages in two days! Its a great story that'll keep you guessing and thinking of what is going to happen next. Andi and Ford are perfect together but it takes Andi a while to figure that out. The book ends, leaving you to wonder what is going to happen in the next book of the series! If you love Romance novels, read Written On Her Heart. Please leave your comments and questions below :)
