Rainbow Cake!

This was the Easter cake I made last weekend. Can you guess what is in the inside?

So how do you make a rainbow cake? You pour your cake batter into 6 individual bowls add a different color of food coloring into each bowl and stir. "Red, orange, yellow, green, blue purple". Then pour each bowl of batter evenly into pan starting with red and working your way through the song. Give the pan a little shake and pop in the oven. Everyone will be wow'ed when you slice into your cake.

Kid Friendly Garden Lites Review

Remember my Garden Lites Veggie Muffins review and my review for their Cheddar Broccoli Bakes? I have another review to add to the Garden Lites lineup. Their latest kid friendly and parent approved Nickelodeon branded muffins.

For the SpongeBob fan, Chocolate Krabby Square muffins. These muffins will trick your kid into thinking they are eating a delicious chocolate-y brownie. When they are really eating a chocolate muffin filled with zucchini and carrots! These are square shaped just like SpongeBob himself and come in a package of six individually packaged frozen muffins that take mere seconds to defrost and warm.

Have a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle fan in your home? These chocolate chip muffins have been transformed TMNT style. They are green and filled with spinach and zucchini but your kiddos will notice the chocolate chips and just a hint of caramel. These also come individually packaged and frozen, six in a box and can be microwaved for 20 seconds. Pop a frozen one in your child's lunch box and two hours later when lunchtime comes around they can chomp down on one.

Penelope loved both flavors of Garden Lites but being that she is a SpongeBob fan she was pretty excited about the "Krabby Patties". I top them with a little whipped cream and she has a healthy dessert.

I purchase Garden Lites in the freezer section at my local Sprouts but you can also find them Target, Publix and ShopRite.

Yummy in my Tummy- Burger Lounge

My sister who lives in San Diego is always raving about Burger Lounge. Known for their grass-fed burgers, local produce and healthy ingredients, she claims they make the best burger. So when I received an email letting me know that Burger Lounge was opening up in my neighborhood, Temecula. I was pretty excited to see what all the fuss was about. I was also pretty lucky because the generous people at Burger Lounge invited me to have lunch, on them, in hopes that I would share with all of you. My husband and I decided to take them up on the offer and we headed out to feast on some grass fed burgers around 1pm on a Sunday. This is what we found...

Now bear in mind, Burger Lounge had only been opened a week when we visited. The line as you can see was out the door and the inside dining room as well as the outside patio where jam packed. By the conversations I heard while standing in line, everyone else there was also pretty eager to see what all the hype was about.

Burger Lounge is based in California. They have several locations in San Diego and several more in Los Angeles. This Temecula location is a first for the Inland Empire. I also noticed on their website that they have more restaurants in the works. I imagine that they will soon branch out into other states.

Burger Lounge is a casual eatery. You walk up to a counter and place your order, you are given a number to take back to your table, and your food is brought to you buy one of their staff. The menu is simple, it consists of handcrafted burgers in your choice of beef, buffalo, turkey, organic quinoa or seared albacore. Each burger has it's own condiments that have been carefully chosen to make a tasty burger and you can add nitrate-free bacon to any burger if you so chose. Yes please! They also have Chicken "Digglers", which I assume are chicken strips as well as a few different salads and fries and onion rings. Their beverage choices include batch craft sodas, organic brewed iced tea a selection of craft beer on tap and their signature house made Lavender Mint Lemonade. Oh and if you are feeling up to it you can try one of their shakes or a batch craft soda root beer float!

My husband ordered the Lounge Burger with bacon and organic cheddar. Toppings were lettuce, tomato, grilled onions and house made 1000 island. The thin, but juicy and perfectly seared with a touch of pink burger was sandwiched in between two delicious buns.

I ordered the "Classic" with bacon and organic American cheese. Toppings were organic ketchup, Mustard, and chopped fresh onion. It also comes with pickles but I left mine out.  We ordered the 1/2 and 1/2 to share, perfectly seasoned and crisp fries and onion rings. A sampling of their  house made sauces were brought to our table for dipping; ranch, barbecue, ketchup and 1000 island.

The burgers were delicious, we were utterly impressed. They tasted fresh and were full of flavor. In my opinion this is one of the better burgers in Temecula. The house made sauces were amazing. My husband said it was the best barbecue sauce he has ever had and I enjoyed the ranch very much. The house made  Lavender Mint Lemonade was a perfect way to quench my thirst on a warm Temecula day. Now I get it! Why my sister has been singing their praises and why the line to eat here was continuously out the door. Our lunch was absolutely delicious. Thank you Burger Lounge!

Another great thing about Burger Lounge is the service. It was top notch. From the girl behind the counter that took our order to the guy that brought us our food to the hard workers we saw walking the dining room making sure all the customers needs were being met and their drink glasses were not going empty. We also had the opportunity to briefly speak with area director Jason, when he wasn't busily helping customers, and I asked him if there was one thing that he wanted me to let all of you know about Burger Lounge. His response besides the yummy natural food made with sustainable and organic ingredients was this. Yes Burger Lounge is a casual eatery with quick fast food service but we want our customers to feel comfortable. We want them to sit and enjoy their meal and never feel like they need to get up from the table. The Burger Lounge staff is there to make sure every customers experience is a great one. Guess what? It was!

Purex PowerShot Review and Giveaway

#2, 17, 31

Purex Insiders sent me the latest Purex product for review, Purex PowerShot. So what's new about this detergent? It does the measuring for you. It makes doing your laundry just a bit easier by measuring out the exact amount of soap needed for a wash load. You just turn the bottle upside down and it will dispense just what you need, no more and no less. 1 flip for regular loads and 2 flips for extra dirty loads. This new super concentrated formula also offers 50% more stain fighting power in every drop.

I have said this before and I will say it again. I am all about convenience and Purex PowerShot offers that. Even Chris was impressed with the auto dosing. Once you flip the bottle upright it will automatically refill for your next use. It's a little laundry magic.

Purex PowerShot comes in two scents, Mountain Breeze and Natural Elements Linen & Lilies. Unfortunately I was sent the Mountain Breeze and therefore could not use it to wash Chris clothes. I tried but his back started breaking out in a rash. I have found that I can use Purex Natural Elements detergent on his clothes and it is fine. I did use this detergent on mine and Penelope's clothes and it cleaned great with no rash!

Want to win a $1000 spring wardrobe plus a years supple of Purex PowerShot? You can enter here.

Want to win a FREE product coupon to try Purex PowerShot? I have 3 coupons to give away to 3 of my readers.
