What's for Lunch?



I often try new recipes and want to just get out of a rut and try something new. Lunch is usually my best time to play with foods because the kids are at school, hubby is at work. I still do have my newest little one, Meadow, but I consider her my "cooking show" audience!
I was really in the mood with carrots this morning. I just love the filling sweetness, did I mention no fat and low calories.



This veggie deserves to be a star of a dish and embellished. I started by cutting the ends and washing the extra dirt. It really brought out the orange. Put them in a baking dish lined with aluminum foil. I did this for the fact of cooking is something I love, dishes are not! Sprayed the foil with Pam for a no stick insurance. Generously coated with EVOO and salt and peppered. Then covered with another sheet of aluminum foil. Popped into a preheated oven of 400F.

This took about 30-40 minutes. I wanted them cooked through but still firm. After taking them out I put on a cutting board and cut them in half and took a rolling pin and semi flattened them.

Made an assembly line of egg wash and Kraft Fresh Take Chili Lime & Panko Mix, Coat, Bake. I took each carrot and ran them through my assembly of goodness. After dressing the carrots in their panko goodness I put them in a medium high heat pan with EVOO once again in the pan. Let them cook on each side about 4-7 minutes. Depends on the stove. I put on a plate after cooking on each side, salted just a bit and put the cheese from the Kraft Fresh Take on top. Oh My Goodness it is so good! I ate this for lunch alone but I think for a side item this would be such a pleaser for the kiddos. I am adding this to my Thanksgiving menu. Yes it has that quality to it. Also there are so many ways you could go with this recipe. I'm thinking other veggies such as cauliflower or broccoli. Maybe my next blog post, right!

Influenster Has A New Look!

Sound the alarm! Influenster.com has a new look. I was really impressed! The new look is cleaner, user friendly, and I found that now I actually understand Influenster more now than ever. I've been a member since November of last year. When I first joined, I will be honest I was referred by a friend to join and when I did I had no idea quite what it was, what to do, or what was expected. Even when asking my friend, she told me she had a hard time always understanding it but that they sent you boxes, known as a Voxbox and you do tasks that qualifies you for badges that helped you get the next box. Finally after a few months I got my first invite for my first Voxbox and I was hooked to the site.
The new site has a fresh new look. I took a few hours to go through it and envelope myself in every nook and crannie.

I think my favorite part of the site is my profile page. It is now so organized and clear. I think clear is the best word to describe it. Everything has its new little homes and I can tell where everything is without scratching my head. I like that they kept it bright and used color to make the important things pop, like the badges.
The home page is very inviting. Its great to see other members feedback on the first page. Gives me hope to see one of my reviews on there (fingers crossed). The top panel for anyone is open and lets you get to exactly what you need to, to be a member or just see the happenings.


Lastly one other part of this wonderful site I felt was noteworthy was the badges page. Once again, so user friendly. I think my 11 year old daughter could navigate without a question. (May have to put that to the test when she gets home from school) I love being able to see what the other members are up to and interested in what badges they are earning. I feel a lot more connected to the other members. I would love to see in the future a chat room for members to get to know some of these treasured souls. I like the way you can see what badges are possible, what you have, and the different levels of a badge.


Influenster.com never ceases to amaze me and now with the site revamp I am more enthusiastic than ever to really dig deep, participate and earn them badges! Can't wait to see what is in store in terms of the coveted VoxBox for the future. If you have not joined, why? Request an invite. I did and now I'm an Influenster! Join now! Influenster.com
