Long Lasting Curls- Video Tutorial

A few months ago I attended a blog conference, SNAP! while at the conference I did my hair in wavy curls.  I was approached by several other blogger ans asked how I got my hair so curly and bouncy.  A lot of them thought it was natural.  But it is not!  My hair is as straight as it comes.  As a child my hair would not hold any curl.  no Curling Iron, hot rollers, perms nothing! I finally found  Caruso curlers in High school that would curl my hair and it would stay for most of the day.  But never 2 days.  So when I found my Evolution curling wand I was in heaven.

My Favorite Canning Recipes and a Giveaway!

Are you a Prepper?  I totally am.  I love all things Preparedness! But let me make it clear, I am not a Zombie Apocalypse  Prepper.  The Zombies can take me of they want... I am the kind of prepper who   loves seeing my 72 Hour kits packed and ready,  My food shelves stocked with food, and learning new ways to use my shelf stable food or making my own shelf stable food. I'm Nerdy like that.

With canning season upon us I though it would be a great idea to share with you a round up of my favorite canning recipes. You can also check out my Pinterest boards for more links to canning, food storage and all things preparedness! Follow me if you would like and learn more about being prepared!

TruMoo & Strawberry Pudding Pops

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of TruMoo for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.
Strawberry Pudding Pops

Do you remember way back when you were a kid and Bill Cosby was telling us on TV to buy Pudding Pops?  I just loved those things.  They were the best creamy treat in the frozen food section! But alas one day they just disappeared, never return.  
I miss them.
So I decided I would make my own.  Only today I am adding a little twist to make them a bit more healthy. They make great after school snacks, or for mom after she sends them all out the door and can enjoy one all to herself!

Trumoo Strawberry Milk 
1 pkg vanilla pudding
10 fresh strawberries
1/4 C. TruMoo Creamer or half & half
With a hand mixer whip the pudding, half &half and 1 1/2 C. Trumoo Strawberry milk.  Whip on medium high for 2 minutes.   This blends the pudding and adds a little air to the half and half.  Set aside for 4-5 minutes so it can start to set.
Next rinse off your berries.  Remove the stem and dice into small pieces. Put a tablespoon or two into your Popsicle containers or paper cups.

Pour your pudding mix into the popsicle containers. I use a spoon because your pudding can be a bit thick. Fill almost to the top and place sticks inside. Use your stick to mix the fruit into the popsicle.  
Place in freezer for at least 4 hours before eating.
These yummy and fresh tasting pudding pops are the perfect after school snack.  Packed with milk and berries, your kids will love them! My kids gobbles these babies up and asked for more.  
You could totally make these in TruMoo Chocolate and add berries or Bananas.

We also bought the Chocolate milk.  After reading the label, I was hooked.  With no added junk or thickener, I think it may have come from a chocolate cow.  We loved the taste.  My kids drank a gallon in two day.  Even my non milk drinker drank it up.
