Easter Menu Recipe Roundup

One thing I love to do is host the holidays at my house. I enjoy putting together a menu and making yummy food for my family. I especially love putting together an Easter menu. Mainly because I make my delicious ham recipe (that I got from my mother in-law) and I know that my kids will always eat it. Especially Bella. She loves this ham! This year we will be celebrating Easter and my grandma-in-law’s birthday, so no hosting for me.

Sidenote…this deviled egg platter would look really nice on your table. Especially with this colorful deviled eggs recipe!

Since I am not planning a dinner, I would love to help you plan yours! Below you will find the best recipes for your Easter menu! Happy Easter to you and your family! If you are still looking for Easter basket filler ideas, be sure to check out my posts here, here and here! Also, since I am following the Keto diet, I will try to add in some Keto friendly recipes, as well!

Easter Menu Recipe Round-up

Get ready to start drooling! These recipes look so amazing! First up, side dishes. It’s been my experience that people typically have a roast of some sort, ham or fish for Easter. I know we will be having ham and probably homemade Arabic food (I don’t know that for sure, but I am assuming my mother in-law will be making it…so good).

In my opinion, desserts are where it’s at. Sure people may mention a random side dish you had or the main course, but the thing they will be talking about for years to come is the dessert. I still remember the first time I tried this white chocolate Chex mix dessert at a holiday get together. I think I ate an entire bowl. Not even joking. It then became something I wanted to have all the time. The desserts below are like that white chocolate Chex mix. People will love them!

Curamin® for Chronic Pain – Workout at Home Printable

Disclosure: This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. All opinions are mine alone. #StopPainNow #CollectiveBias

Living with chronic pain really stinks. More times than not, no matter what I try to do to help the pain, it really doesn’t do much. I’ve dealt with knee pain for about the last 20 years.  As if having knee pain wasn’t enough, I also deal with wrist pain. Being a writer and always on a computer, there are times I stop working and I can barely move my fingers from the pain in my wrist. Thankfully I have found Curamin® Stop Pain Now and just like the name says, it is helping to stop my pain in it’s tracks!

Curamin®

What is Curamin®?

Curamin® is a non-addictive herbal supplement that has been recognized in the natural product industry for years and has won 28 awards. Living with chronic pain, the last thing I want to do is take a bunch of over the counter medications or prescriptions that could end up having a negative impact on other areas of my body. With Curamin®, I get pain relief at the source of the pain; it doesn’t just mask it. For me, that is very important.

Where Can You Buy It?

You can pick up this herbal supplement at fine health food stores nationwide. For more information on a store near you, be sure to check the store locator (or just order online)! I picked up mine at a health food store near me that I just love called Zerbos. Finding it in the store was really easy. An employee asked me what I was looking for. When I told him, he told me that he loved this product!

curamin®

Does it Work?

curamin®

YES! I have only been taking Curamin® for a few weeks and I am really happy with how my wrist and knees are feeling. Like I said earlier, I would very much prefer to take an herbal supplement like this, as opposed to over the counter medications that always seem to upset my stomach. I take Curamin® three times a day and always with food (it doesn’t say you have to, but it helps me remember). So this morning, after the gym, I took it with my breakfast!

curamin®

One of the ways I’ve noticed that it’s helping is when I work out. Since my husband is out of town a lot for work, I don’t always get a chance to get to the gym. My kids have a very crazy sports schedule! But, gym or no gym, I still want to get a workout in. So I put together this Workout at Home printable for you.

Whether you working out at the gym or at home, don’t let pain stop you from doing the things you want and need to do. When pain is the problem, Curamin® is the answer! Be sure to check the store locator and pick up some Curamin® today!

Top 10 Keto Diet Must Haves

Thinking about doing the Keto diet, but don’t know where to start? No worries! I have been doing the diet for over a year now, have successfully kept 82 pounds off AND I just so happen to have a lot of resources to get your started! You can get started by checking out this post, this post and this post. Once you have an idea of where to start with the Keto diet, you will want to move on to the list below of the top 10 Keto diet must haves!

Top 10 Keto Diet Must Haves

Getting started with a diet like this, you are probably a little freaked out. I mean, it goes against everything that has been drilled into our head about what we should be eating. If this sounds like you, then you are probably thinking, “I need books to tell me what to eat” and “I need to know if I am in Ketosis or not”. If this sounds like you, then these products should be in your Amazon cart right now!

Once you have your ketone strips to see if you are in ketosis and your necessary cookbooks, you will want to have quick and easy snacks that you can grab for those on the go moments. Since you’re already adding stuff to your Amazon cart, you might as well add these items too!

Getting your fat in on the Keto diet can be rough at first. Making fat bombs, like these chocolate sunbutter fat bombs, do help (be sure to pick up the cookbook above for more fat bomb ideas). Another thing you will want to make are Keto approved Gummy Bears! To make either of the things mentioned above, you will need the following silicone molds.

The last item you MUST add to your shopping cart are these amazing, portion control baggies! If you like nuts, but don’t want to over eat them (the carbs will add up quickly), then pre-fill these bags for quick and easy, grab and go snacks!

There you have it! The top 10 Keto diet must haves!

Bottle Flip Board Game

If you have tweens and teens, then you are more than familiar with the bottle flip craze that has been sweeping the nation. My kids will flip anything. In fact, this morning, my son flipped the gallon of milk. No joke. Thankfully it did not break. Can you imagine that mess?!? I have to admit, I do yell “stop flipping things” quite often. However, when I was asked to review the Bottle Flip board game, I knew I had to!

Bottle Flip Board Game

I will admit, I almost said no to reviewing this game. Bottle flipping is VERY annoying to me. BUT, after playing this game, I realized why it bothers me so much. It’s not the actual bottle flip action, as much as it is the sound of the water bottles we have. That crinkle sound is what drives me crazy! With this game, there is zero crinkle sound! So it’s all good!

Bottle Flip Board GameBottle Flip Board Game

How to Play

Playing the game is really simple. Each player chooses their own bottle cap piece in the color of their choice. Then players draw a card to see what their “challenge” is. First player to make it to the top, wins! It’s really that simple…or is it?!? Being the overly competitive family that we are, this is a great game for us. It says it is recommended for ages 13+, but my 10 year old daughter did just fine!

If you like board games, you will definitely want to add this to your collection! We always give the kids a board game on Christmas Eve with their brand new pair of pajamas. Since we are close to Easter, this would be a great game to pick up for the kids (and you too…let’s be honest)!
