Giveaway! $25 Schlotzsky's Gift Card - Two Winners #HoorayItaly

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
I was recently invited to a blogger event at the Austin Schlotzsky's to try out their new "Viva l’Italia" Italian Menu. It includes four Oven-Baked Pastas, three specialty sandwiches on artisan Ciabatta bread, Gourmet Spicy Chicken Alfredo Pizza, and Italian Chopped Salad. Besides eating way more than I should have eaten, I got to meet several of the company executives and chefs. Look at all these delicious Italian choices!
The delicious Italian Chopped Salad includes chopped romaine lettuce, shredded ham, pepperoni, cotto and genoa salami, mozzarella and parmesan cheeses, red onions, olive tapenade and diced tomatoes, tossed with a robust Italian dressing.
As a pizza lover, I was delighted with the Chicken Alfredo Gourmet Pizza! It's made with hand-carved grilled chicken, Italian sausage, bacon, mozzarella, Parmesan cheeses, and roasted red peppers. I could have easily eaten more pizza, but next up we tried their incredible specialty sandwiches on artisan Ciabatta bread.
The Sicilian is shaved ham, sharp provolone cheese, pepperoni, Cotto and Genoa salami, roasted red bell pepper, balsamic onions, olives and pepperoncini, field greens, and Roma tomato. The Tuscan is hand-carved roasted turkey breast, melted pepper jack cheese, Roma tomato, field greens, bacon, cilantro and chipotle aioli, and fresh avocado. They also offer a vegetarian sandwich called The Caprese, which has shredded mozzarella cheese, roasted tomatoes, mayo, field greens, tomatoes, balsamic onions, basil pesto, and a balsamic glaze.
Then we tried the scrumptious new oven-baked pastas. The Tomato-Basil Canestrelli is a vegetarian dish with canestrelli pasta, tomato basil sauce, mozzarella cheese and parmesan cheese.
The Bayo Chicken oven-baked pasta is canestrelli pasta in a basil cream sauce, sweet bell peppers, hand-carved chicken breast, Italian sausage and applewood smoked bacon.
The Chicken Pesto Carbonara is canestrelli pasta with basic cream sauce, roasted tomato, red bell pepper, chicken breast, and applewood smoked bacon.
Their vegetarian oven-baked pasta is the Sausage and Peppers with Goat Cheese Pasta, which features canestrelli pasta, tomato basil sauce, Italian sausaged, bell pepper, and goat cheese. All four pastas were amazing, but my favorite one of the four is the Bayou Chicken.
We also enjoyed Schlotzsky's Garlic Bread Sticks with cheeses and some delectable desserts with coffee. I tried their Creamy Cheesecake, but I was so full I couldn't even finish it.
After trying all the new Schlotzsky's Italian Menu items, I've decided The Tuscan Ciabatta Specialty Sandwich is my favorite item!
Schlotzsky's has done a wonderful thing by creating this new Italian menu and we will definitely be visiting again very soon. Besides the Italian menu, there are about 50 other items including sandwiches, gourmet pizzas, flatbreads, wraps, salads, and more. They even have catering for events, both large and small!

Giveaway! Easter Stories - Classic Tales for the Holy Season

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
The significance of Easter goes far beyond bunnies and candy-filled eggs. For me, it is all about the celebration of Jesus' resurrection and the spring of new life he offers to us all. The collection of short stories in Easter Stories Classic Tales for the Holy Season left me feeling both inspired and blessed. With stories from CS Lewis, Leo Tolstoy, Oscar Wilde, and many others, Easter Stories illuminates the true meaning of Easter.

One of my favorite tales in Easter Stories include The White Lily by Jane Tyson Clement. It's the story about a man, a boy, and a dog who live in abhorrent conditions without love for each other. The man is given a brilliant white lily as a gift and it transforms their lives. I was brought to tears reading it.

Another one of my favorites is The Ragman by Walter Wangerin Jr. It's the story of a man who travels around exchanging new rags for old rags. As the Ragman acquires old rags from people, he also acquires the ailments of the person who was wearing them, and that person becomes new. It's another story that really touched my heart.

Easter Under a Park Bench by Kirk Wareham left me sobbing. In it, a boy is intrigued when he sees a homeless man sleeping under a park bench. He sits down to talk to the homeless man and learns about his life and his past. The boy invites him to spend Easter with his family the next day, but when he goes back to lead the man to his home, he discovers disappointment. It was a good reminder to me that we must reach out to those who are hurting.

I read through Easter Stories in one afternoon. It left me feeling contemplative and blessed, and wanting to give more of my own blessings away. Fortunately, I get to give away this wonderful book to one of you! Just enter below for your chance to win this wonderful treasure of classic tales that your family can enjoy year after year.

Giveaway! Positive Energy Naturally Caffeinated Juice

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
Each day, my drink intake usually consists of black coffee in the morning, water with lemon in the afternoon, and a glass of red wine at night. Around mid-afternoon, I'm feeling sluggish and starting to wear down. Positive Energy has eliminated my afternoon drag!
Positive Energy has created the first-ever 100% juice with natural caffeine, sourced from green coffee beans right off the branch. It contains no preservatives and no artificial flavors. It's non-GMO project verified, certified gluten-free, and certified kosher.
Positive Energy comes in seven flavors - Orange Juice, Cranberry Juice, Apple Juice, Lemonade, Strawberry Lemonade, Peach-Mango Lemonade, and Tea+Lemonade. Each 10oz screw-top bottle contains the amount of caffeine equivalent to a large cup of premium coffee.
I have tested all seven flavors of Positive Energy and they are absolutely delicious! My favorites are the Orange Juice, the Peach-Mango Lemonade, and the Apple Juice. My least favorite is the Cranberry but I've never been a big drinker of cranberry anyway.
Positive Energy gives me a natural energy boost in the afternoons and I've even replaced one of my morning cups of coffee with this juice.  It doesn't leave me jittery like some drinks that contain potentially dangerous guarana or taurine. With only four ingredients, I know what I'm putting into my body.
Positive Energy is available in 6packs and 12packs online and in a number of US states. Visit their website at www.DrinkPositiveEnergy.com for more information and to find a store locator. Positive Energy has earned my recommendation! I encourage you to try it!

Yonanas Healthy Dessert Maker - Review

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
March is National Nutrition Month and I'm celebrating with my new Yonanas Healthy Dessert Maker! Most of us try to eat the right foods that contain the nutrients we need to fuel our bodies, but the way we are preparing our food may actually be deteriorating its vital ingredients. Even though juicing is healthy, juicing forces us to forego the fiber which is a very important element in our diets.
The Yonanas Healthy Dessert Maker is a small electric appliance that uses its patented technology and high-torque blades to emulsify ONLY frozen fruit into a guilt-free creamy frozen treat just like soft-serve ice cream without separating the nutrients we need.
The Yonanas Healthy Dessert Maker is SO easy to use! It even comes with a recipe book to get you started. I froze two organic bananas and 3/4 cups of organic strawberries, then set them out on the counter for 15 minutes for a slight thaw.
The Yonanas Healthy Dessert Maker has a tube on top where the fruit is dropped in for processing. It's shaped so you can put a bowl right up under the dispenser. I plugged it in and flipped the on switch, then dropped in the first banana, then the strawberries, then the second banana. I stirred them together and made a perfect strawberry banana soft-serve treat!
I am SO impressed with the Yonanas Healthy Dessert Maker! My fruit came out incredibly delicious and really does have the consistency of soft-serve ice cream. I can hardly believe it's simply two bananas and some strawberries. It was also incredibly easy to clean. I'm excited to try some of the other recipes and create some of my own.
You can learn more about the Yonanas Healthy Dessert Maker at yonanas.com. You can purchase one at many popular retailers and they are launching in Costco stores this month for just $40. It's the ultimate way to get everyone in your family to eat more fruit!
