Easy Chicken "Gumbo"

2 pounds ground chicken
1 cup chopped celery
1 cup chopped green pepper
1 cup chopped onion
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 can (28 ounces) stewed tomatoes
2 cup frozen okra
1 chopped fresh jalapeno
1 cup chicken broth
2 teaspoon Cajun seasoning
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon caynee pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon thyme
4 tablespoons hot sauce

In pot cook the chicken, celery, jalapeno,green pepper and onion in oil over medium heat for 15 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink; drain liquid
Stir in the remaining ingredients BESIDES THE OKRA ( throw that in about 10 mins before its done or whatever the package says) . Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 1 hour .Serve over brown rice

I am sure you could also just brown the meat and then throw everything in the slow cooker (aside from the okra cuz it'll get mushy) I just hardly ever use mine.

Reese Bonus Bath Bombs!!!

This Giveaway is being Hosted By: Bargain Shopping with Holly


Have you heard of Reese Bath Bombs yet? They are a relatively new company that provide Bath bombs with something a little different in them.  You can visit to see all her offerings.

First They come in 10 scents:

Angel wingsa light floral scent with touches of sandal wood and baby powder.

Blueberryfreshly picked and juicy blueberries baking in the oven.
Cotton Candy - has the delightful sugary scent of the carnival midway.
Gardenia - a light fresh floral scent of lush white gardenias in full bloom 
Hawiian Plumeria - a delightful floral scent of Hawaiian Plumeria flowers 
Coconut Lime - an irresistible scent of zesty lime and creamy coconut combined.
Milk N Honeythe combination of smooth milk and creamy honey that create a lightly sweet luxurious fragrance perfect for those who prefer a light fresh scent.
Pina Colada - The tropical scent of sweet pineapple, cream of coconut and rum notes.
Strawberries N Creamthe fragrance of juicy strawberries dipped in whipped vanilla cream.
Warm Vanilla Sugarthe scent of warm vanilla with  a touch of sweet brown sugar will have you craving cookies in no time!

You can find out more in her shop here:

Now onto the review! I chose Pina Colada:

It came perfectly packaged and it arrived a lot faster than I anticipated, maybe because I am used to blogging about candles and sometimes I feel I may die of old age by the time they get here. Her average time of arrival is 3-5 days. Now, at the time I did not own a bathing suit so I could not review it in the bathtub, cause you know.... trying to keep my Youtube channel PG and all. So instead I used my industrial sized sink in my laundry room. to view the youtube video please follow this link:

Believe me when I say I had more fun chasing the bomb with my feet than anything lol. I loved the bath bomb, it left my feet feeling softer than they have in years not to mention smelling awesome. My only regret was not being able to use it in the bathtub so my whole body would benefit. 

Each Bonus Bomb comes with a ring inside. I have mine pictured below. It's a bit big for me but I did like it. The Reese facebook also has links to ring swap pages in case yours does not fit or it is not to your liking. They also have a huge gallery on there showing what kinds of rings you can find.

I would like to mention, unlike other bombs it is best if you use the whole bomb at once, for several reasons. 1 If you break it open you risk damaging your ring, she does not and should not have to replace your item because of this. Also to get the full benefit of the bomb it is important to use it in it's entirety. Also not all of her rings are costume. They range from $10 - $250, but even the $10 ones are usually at least gold or silver plated. Each ring comes in a plastic bag and wrapped in blue, red or gold foil. The blue and red foils are the ones that are worth a minimum of $10.00. If you are lucky enough to get one of the gold foiled ones? Get excited, your ring is worth a minimum of $50!

All in all I was very happy with this bath bomb, with the exception of course that I couldn't use it in my tub. As you all know I love these crackerjack like companies. The excitement of getting out whatever it is hidden inside is the best part of my day and it is why I do what I do!

I hope you enjoyed this review and visit this incredible company!

As a Bonus? Reese Bath Bombs has agreed to sponsor a Giveaway! 1 Winner will get a Bonus Bath Bomb of their Choice! This giveaway will run 1 week starting tomorrow 9/14/2013 and will be added to the bottom of this review!

As always, the opinions in this review are my own and should not reflect that of the company. Reese Bath Bombs provided the bomb for review, I was not compensated in anyway.

Ethereal Glow!!!

Was another awesome mail day because I got my custom half loaf from Ethereal Glow!!! Though I had to wait a couple weeks for it to me bad it was definitely worth the wait. My custom loaf was is in the scents Cotton Candy/Pink Sugar/ Ethereal Glow/ Marshmallow and it is soooo good!!!! It  smells sweet, creamy and decadent and I assure you the cure time will drive me crazy... I was oh so tempted to pop a piece in my warmer as soon as it came but I shall resist temptation.She was also kind enough to send me 5 free samples (which is amazing ) in the following scents Chai tea, Peppermint cream, Cotton Candy Frosting , Brenham Cream and the ghost!!! I've never had any wax in Chai Tea before and this one has a  light tea scent but I smell quiet a bit of cinnamon/nutmeg. Peppermint Cream to me smells a little bit like tooth paste and i'm not sure about this one ( first from this company that I haven't really cared for). Cotton Candy Frosting is AMAZING!!! You'd expect it to be super sweet but it isn't, It's just a mellow smooth sweetness and I see more of this scent in my future. Brenham Cream smells like vanilla frosting so sweet and yummy. As for the little ghost guy he is a mystery. It was a goof and even the Julia (the owner of the company) isn't sure what the scent it. I think it smells like tootsie roll pops .I catch some type of chocolate and then a soft sweetness it very well could be an ice red velvet cake... I guess we shall never really know but it smells good regardless!

I swear sometimes the mail lady is my best friend. I get way to excited when she pulls up!!! Today I got in another amazing package from  Ethereal Glow. This company is definitely in my top 3 vendors! Not only does her stuff smells AMAZING but the texture of her wax is in my opinion perfect. Today I got a huge piece of Peach Nectar/Momma/Brenham Cream. On cold smell the peach seemed to over power the other scents but now that I have it melting the creamy baked yummyness comes through a lot more. I am oh so glad that I have such a big piece! I also got some sample shots in Amarillo Morning, Laundromat,Lemon Sauce and Serendipity. I would never have chose Amarillo Morning for myself and it smells like creamy coffee goodness. Laundromat is a strong very clean smell it reminds me of dryer sheets and it got the hubbys approval :) So much great stuff to melt it's hard to choose... LOL!!! To check out some of her stuff go give her facebook page a like!!! Ethereal Glow Candle Company

I received Stoned Washed Denim, Turquoise Waters, Sweet Pea & Lily, Honeysuckle Hugs, Powder Puff, Fresh Raspberry, Grapefruit Mandarin, Red Delicious Apple,  Orange Dreamsicle and  I Love Watermelon. First off I can't believe how STRONG they smell... They are super strong even in their little baggies. They all smell pretty amazing!!!  Stoned Washed Denim,Turquoise Waters and Powder Puff are all awesome fresh clean type scents. I normally don't care at all for sweet pea ( i've tried several and never had any luck) I was surprised at how wonderful this one is ...If you like floral this is a MUST try!!! I Love Watermelon is dead on to watermelon Jolly Ranchers, It's sooo sweet and yummy. Red Delicious Apple is a perfectly fitting name it smells like fresh cut apples! Overall I am pretty impressed with them all and I can't wait to start melting :) If anyone is interested in checking out Pink Zebra go give Merrandas page( Link on the bottom of this post) a "Like" and tell her Binky sent you!
