Today I’m introducing you to some products you may or may not have tried before. These are items that can help make your entertaining life a little easier during the holiday rush. This is a sponsored post for BabbleBoxx.com on behalf of Single Edition Media.
Today’s post is a little different than usual, and a nice break from all the parties I’ve been designing this season. I partnered with BabbleBoxx to review items sent to me for hosting at home. While some of the products were familiar to me, I was excited to find a few new ones to add to my shopping list.
The theme of this box was “hosting and toasting” for the holidays. Some of the contents can be used to make a quick and easy meal for out of town guests, while others can be used for snacking, feeding the kids, or making life easier in the kitchen.
The Simplehuman sensor soap dispenser with foam cartridge is right at home by the kitchen sink and lets you wash up without touching a pump. That’s nice when you have raw chicken on your hands! The foam cartridge clicks in for easy refilling, and there are a wide variety of soap scents. This would be a terrific gift item too!
The Sunsweet Pacific Tropicals in Philippine green mango & Thai coconut makes a DELICIOUS trail-mix together or with salted almonds. They’re lightly sweet, and the coconut is thin and crunchy! The resealable bags make them a great take-along snack when shopping or working out too. Get a $1 off coupon here.
If you’re having children as part of your house guests, Annie’s Organic Soups are a great thing to have around to feed them for lunch. The vegetable soup is made with farm-shaped pasta with bite-sized veggies. It’s certified organic, free from artificial flavors & preservatives, and includes 1/2 cup of veggies per serving.
Another one for the kids, Ella’s Kitchen the Red One pouch is a fruit smoothie the perfect size for little hands. They’re made from real fruit, not concentrate, and easy to serve and clean up.
La Croix Melon sparkling water has a very subtle melon flavor. It’s ripe cantaloupe essence infused with pink grapefruit… a tangy duo with a touch of sweetness! It’s 100% natural and there’s no caffeine, sugar, or calories. I made a mocktail with it by adding a scoop of lemonade powder to it, for a Melon-Lemonade drink. Yum!
For a quick, easy, and delicious dinner, use the Wild Garden Persian quick marinade on pork chops or chicken, along with Wild Garden heat & serve Rice & Lentils. It’ll taste like you’re in an exotic restaurant!
I love my Green Pan Lima ceramic skillet. It’s something we’ve moved to in recent years as an alternative to those classic non-stick pans. There’s no toxic chemicals, it has great heat conduction, and it’s easy to clean. We’ve replaced all our older non-stick pans with these! This would make a great gift idea for newlyweds or someone who just loves to cook. Enter to win a set for your self here.
Snack Factory Pretzel Crisps are a go-to snack for us. I always serve them with my baked spinach dip at parties. You’ll find them in the deli section of your grocer, and there’s a variety of flavors to choose from.
