Working out in a gym can be difficult for many. I don't mean using the machines difficult, although some of those machines should have picture instructions. What I mean by difficult is that it's hard for some people to have the courage to go, if you're not already fit then you feel like all eyes are on you. Fortunately there is a solution. CoreBody Reformer™ by Nautilus® is able to give you three core-focused workouts with yoga, pilates and dance, all in a portable, easy to use workout product.

Since my teenage daughter and her friend were going to pick at Grandma and Grandpa's backyard I put together a small picking kit for them to use. I put in gloves, a magnifying glass, a flashlight and a notebook with sticky notes and a pen.
We arrived at Grandma and Grandpa's ready to pick. So they grabbed their picking gear and a Capri Sun Big Pouch each and headed outside to start picking!
There were things I had forgotten about and some things that made us laugh like when my teen daughter found a boom box and called it an antique! Then there was the mower bike that looks very cool and unique.

Many people do not realize that there is more than one type of RV. There are the Caravans, Campertrailers, Campervans, Motorhomes and Fifth Wheelers. Each of these types of RV's are made differently and each suite a different lifestyle.

Making an easy meal to enjoy with my family is important to me, fortunately I was able to do that in this post that is sponsored by Collective Bias. Cooking doesn't come naturally for me, so if I can find things that make preparing dinner a lot easier then I am willing to try them. I went to Save Mart Supermarket to pick up some ingredients to make a pasta dinner. You can see my entire shopping experience here.
Even though I am not the greatest cook, I like to satisfy even the pickiest eaters in my family. After reading through these fresh finds, I decided to try making a marinara pasta and an alfredo pasta. So I picked up Pacific Coast Selections pasta sauces and their refrigerated pastas,and got to cooking!
The Pacific Coast Selections pasta sauces came in easy to open 13 ounce containers. The Marinara was a tomato sauce with fine herbs, making it full of flavor. The Alfredo is a rich and creamy sauce.
Since cooking is not my forte I like that I could buy some already made pastas that just need some sauce and maybe another special ingredient. Since the Tricolor Five Cheese Tortellini doesn't have a meat included I decided to cook some chicken and add it to the pasta.
Both dishes came out spectacular and I have to give some credit to my sister-in-law Vanessa, she helped me make this meal for the family. I was so thrilled to hear that they liked the pasta sauces, of course some liked one pasta more than another but overall the meal was a great success! Here is the Meat & Fine Herb Ravioli with Marinara sauce dish.
And here is Tricolor Five Cheese Tortellini with Chicken & Alfredo sauce.
I loved making these pastas and now I know even if you're not the best cook making a delicious meal is still possible.Below are both of the recipes I used for my pasta meals. If you are interested in other recipes you can follow Save Mart on Pinterest. You can also follow Save Mart on Facebook and Twitter for their great deals.
Meat & Fine Herb Ravioli with Marinara sauce
1- Pacific Coast Selections Meat & Fine Herb Ravioli refrigerated pasta packages
1- 13 ounce container of Pacific Coast Selections Marinara sauce
-Cheese of Your Choice for Topping or Mix-In
*Parmesan, Romano & Asiago are suggested
Cook the Meat & Fine Herb pasta exactly as directed on the package. While the pasta is boiling, heat the Marinara sauce in a pot or pan. Adding the pasta to hot pasta sauce will keep the pasta from cooling too much. It can also prevent the pasta from sticking together. Once the pasta has been prepared, you can either top your pasta with grated cheese or mix the cheese in to add some more flavor. Serve with a side of your choice and enjoy!
Tricolor Five Cheese Tortellini with Chicken & Alfredo sauce
1- Pacific Coast Selections Tricolor Five Cheese Tortellini refrigerated pasta packages
1- 13 ounce container of Pacific Coast Selections Alfredo sauce
2- Chicken breast, cut into small strips or cubed
-Cheese of Your Choice for Topping or Mix-In
*Parmesan, Romano & Asiago are suggested
Prepare the chicken first by cutting it up and cooking it. While chicken is browning, begin cooking the Tricolor Five Cheese Tortellini pasta exactly as directed. While the pasta is boiling, heat the Alfredo sauce in a pot or pan. Adding the pasta to hot pasta sauce will keep the pasta from cooling too much. It can also prevent the pasta from sticking together. After adding the pasta, start adding in the chicken. If there doesn't seem to be enough alfredo sauce you can add a couple spoonfuls of the pasta water, not too much though. Now that your pasta is finished, you can either top your pasta with grated cheese or mix the cheese in to add some more flavor. Serve with a side of your choice and enjoy!

The market is flooded with tricks and gimmicks to help those who smoke to finally break their habits; while many of these gadgets and gizmos might enable some to trade one habit for another, there are some complexities and challenges faced by smokers that requires motivation and vigilance. Groups that lend support to one another during abstinence may be a good reinforcement of the initial motivation that many smokers start out with in their pursuit of a smoke-free life, and some online communities may bring this same element to consumers in a virtual environment.
Another effective way to quit smoking today for many may be found through participation in one of the smoking cessation studies or focus groups that are available through various companies and researchers. Some clinical groups conduct intermittent studies regarding the effects of smoking, and the efficacy of efforts to quit, look for candidates that are motivated to stop the habit with support. An online search may yield results including the Evaluating Adverse Events in a Global Smoking Cessation Study (EAGLES, which seeks willing participants to join their research group's current undertaking. These studies may implement various techniques and tactics to help maintain the smokers' desire to quit, as well as teach some valuable skills in managing stress such as the adoption of alternative coping mechanisms for managing the stressors of daily life.

I was sent the very cool Good Cook Cast Iron Grill Press to use in my bacon recipe. I was excited but wasn't sure what to make, then it came to me! I needed to weave the bacon together and make a bacon "patty".
I cooked my bacon patty on my Good Cook Cast Iron Grill which worked wonderfully with the grill press. Once my bacon "patty" was fully cooked I made a couple pancakes and used an egg mold I have to make the perfect size scrambled egg. This is my egg cooking below.
The bacon was done, the pancakes were ready and now my egg was cooked. Time to put my Bacon & Egg Panwich together.
The Bacon & Egg Panwich was a BIG hit in my house! Using the Cast Iron Grill Press on the bacon kept it from curling up, so my bacon "patty" came out perfectly.
Don't be surprised if the smell of bacon brings your kids or spouse into the kitchen. My daughter wanted to try out the cast iron grill press, she loved it! Now she wants to make some other grill pressed bacon recipes.
Make sure to check out my BBQ Bacon Stuffed Cheeseburger, I use the cast iron grill in this post as well.
For all you bacon lovers you can get 25% off on any Good Cook Burger Tools just use the code: BaconLovers.

My family loves burgers and even though we live in California where the sun shines a lot, sometimes it's either too hot to go outside or it's winter time and grilling isn't an option. So when I was able to try the Good Cook Cast Iron Grill Pan I was thrilled to know I can grill year round! I had always wanted to try to make a stuffed burger so when I was sent my Stuffed Burger Press I knew I wanted to make something the entire family would love. After asking the family what they wanted one ingredient kept coming up, bacon! I knew right then one stuffed burger we would all love, a beautiful BBQ Bacon Stuffed Cheeseburger!
