I forgot all about polenta until I saw it in Trader Joe's yesterday! I was looking for gluten free dinner ideas to make a special dinner for my niece who is going out of town and I saw the prepared tube of polenta on the shelf. These tubes are so user friendly and can be fried up and embellished to become a delicious side dish or appetizer in just a few minutes. Try the following recipe and let me know what you think!
Fried Polenta with Olive oil and Parmesan:
One tube prepared Polenta, sliced into 1/4" round slices (should make about 20 slices)
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 tsp olive oil, divided
Heat up a medium to large size non-stick skillet over medium heat (I like the eco friendly ceramic skillets) and add a tsp of the olive oil until hot.
When the oil is smoking a bit, add as many slices as you can to the pan, leaving a little room around them so that you will easily be able to flip them with a spatula.
Wait a few minutes and check with a spatula to see if the underside is getting golden brown. When it does, flip it over and cook until that side is golden brown.
While you're waiting for the second side to get brown, place a little of the cheese on top.
When the cheese is melted and the second side is golden brown, remove from the pan and loosely cover with aluminum.
Start making the second batch and when they are all done, serve immediately. Enjoy!

I don't know about you, but my seven year old son is obsessed with all things Skylander. For the first time in franchise history, Activision will bring the full console experience of the best-selling kid's game and action figure line, Skylanders, to the tablet! On October 5, launching day-and-date with the console version, the Skylanders Trap Team Tablet Starter Pack will give fans everything they need for a rich gameplay experience wherever and whenever they want to play. The launch also underscores Activision's continued commitment to delivering another meaningful technological leap to the Skylanders franchise.
The Skylanders Trap Team Tablet Starter Pack will include a Bluetooth version of the Traptanium Portal that gives players the freedom to dock their tablet and a cool Bluetooth-enabled controller for the best possible play experience. The pack will also include two Skylanders characters, two Traps, and a display tray that lets Portal Masters keep track of the Traps they've collected and which villains they have trapped.
Activision's continued commitment to bringing significant innovation to the Toys-to-Life category that the company firmly established in 2011 is redefining the Toys-to-Life phenomenon with yet another ground-breaking innovation for the #2 best-selling console and handheld game overall in dollars for the first six months of 2014, in North America and Europe combined, and the #1 action figure line in North America!
Some more great information...￼
Each Skylanders Trap Team character and villain has a unique personality and power that kids will want to play with again and again in both the real and game worlds. The Skylanders franchise continues to bring imaginative characters to fans, such as Kaboom, who uses his Red Hot Traptanium Cannon to blast evil in the broadsides; and Pain-Yatta, a giant piñata who can barf an endless supply of candy that sweetens any battle!
Toys to Life™, Life to Toys - Players will experience an exciting new level of Skylanders innovation through the Traptanium Portal, a new ring of magical energy which reverses the magic of the toys to life category by letting players bring digital characters into the physical world. A built-in audio speaker allows players to magically hear the unique voices of the villains travel from the game into the real world Trap, and vice versa. The Trap also lights up in sync with the villain speaking, adding even more magic to the experience.
Two Ways to Play - In Skylanders Trap Team, you can play as a Skylander or capture Skylands' most wanted foes and unleash them for good. It's up to Portal Masters to find these villains and capture them inside the new Traps that transport the villains into the real world via the Traptanium Portal. Once trapped, players can return the villain to Skylands as a playable character. This exciting new play pattern gives fans the option to switch between playing as a Skylander hero or a villain at any time, creating fun and unique "tag team" gameplay.
Elementally Designed Traps - Themed Trap designs add variety to the collectible Skylanders Trap Team experience. Each Trap is elementally aligned, letting players capture villains who fall under that element. For instance, when Portal Masters explore the world of Skylands and encounter a water villain, they can insert a water Trap into the Traptanium Portal to capture that villain, as well as bring that villain back into Skylands as a playable character who helps in the fight for good. If players don't have the correct Trap for a villain they encounter, the defeated villain will be held in a Villain Vault at the Skylanders Academy, where Portal Masters can keep track of the foes they have captured. When the player buys the correct Trap, they can transfer the villain from the Vault into the Trap in order to play as that character. With each new Trap added to their collection, Portal Masters unlock an exciting world of possibilities!
New Cast of Characters -A brand new group of Skylanders, known as Trap Masters, lead the charge armed with their oversized crystal weapons in the fight against more than 40 most wanted villains and returning nemesis Kaos.
Sometimes the simplest recipes are the ones we relish. I have been on an Indian cooking kick for a few weeks now and I love making this quick raita (yogurt sauce) to accompany dishes that need a little sauce. I have been making use of all my luscious cucumbers from our garden but any store bought ones will do as well. Enjoy!
1 large cucumber, seeded and chopped into 1/4 inch chunks
1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt, 0% fat preferred
2 garlic cloves, peeled and minced finely
pinch of Kosher salt
Mix the minced garlic and yogurt together until fully combined.
Add the yogurt to the cucumbers and stir to fully coat.
Sprinkle with a pinch of salt, stir and chill for at least 15-30 minutes.

I don't know about you, but there's something about this time of year that stresses me out. Sure we still have one more month left until the summer is over, but that doesn't stop all those Back to School reminders that seem to be flooding my email inbox. As I contemplated standing on long lines and paying top dollar for notebooks, paper, pens, calculators and more, I was pleasantly surprised to find out that Walmart has launched Savings Catcher - a new way for you to save money while you shop!
Through Savings Catcher, Walmart compares your receipt to advertised prices from top stores in your area, and if it finds a lower advertised price, you get the difference on an eGift Card. All you have to do is enter your receipt and Walmart does the work for you. No more shopping around town and no need to ad match.
Here's how it works:
Submit your receipt to Savings Catcher in any one of two ways:
Enter the receipt number (the TC number) into Savings Catcher at Walmart.com/savingscatcher. You'll find this number located near the bottom of your printed Walmart store receipt.
Or, scan the code at the bottom of your printed store receipt, using the scanner in the Savings Catcher section of the Walmart app.
Savings Catcher compares the prices of the eligible items you bought at Walmart to the advertised prices found in the print and online versions of the weekly ads of top retailers in your area. The ads must be valid at the time you made your Walmart purchase.
If Savings Catcher finds an advertised price that is lower than what you paid for the same exact item at Walmart, you'll get back the difference on a Walmart Rewards eGift Card.
As soon as my daughter comes back from sleepaway camp this Saturday, we'll be grabbing her back to school list and hitting Walmart so I can give Savings Catcher a try. In the meantime, check out the Walmart Savings Catcher website so you can sign up to and start saving right now!

Sometimes we forget the old classics when we need a quick dinner. I made this semi-homemade recipe that was a crowd pleaser and very quick to prepare last week when my brother was visiting and we were running all over town. I use Whole Foods 365 brand marinara sauce and grate my own mozzarella which is MUCH cheaper than buying it grated. Enjoy!
Easy and Quick Lasagna:
Full large jar marinara sauce, divided into quarter amounts
1 lb mozzarella cheese, grated, divided into 4 piles
3/4 cup prepared or homemade pesto
1 pint whole or low fat milk ricotta cheese
16 sheets of short lasagna noodles
In a 9"X13" Pyrex casserole dish, lay down 4 lasagna noodles.
Take the pesto and stir into the ricotta until it is fully combined. Divide into 4 equal portions.
Take 1/4 of the pesto mixture and place dollops all over the lasagna noodles.
Sprinkle 1/4 of the mozzarella cheese all over the pesto mixture.
Pour 1/4 of the marinara sauce over the cheese layers.
Lay down another layer of the noodles and repeat layers until all the ingredients are used up.
Make sure that you press down the noodle layers so that the noodles are immersed in the sauce so they can get tender,
Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or cover with foil and refrigerate or freeze for later use.

Ice cream is great for any time of year but especially in summer. Back in the day (do I sound old?) all ice cream was natural but definitely not so anymore. Many ice cream brands, especially the inexpensive ones, have loads of additives that might surprise you. Although the following ingredients are ones that you wouldn't want to eat every day, a once in a while home made ice cream treat beats the chemical filled ones. If you don't already have an ice cream maker, you may either want to invest in one or make this the old fashioned way by shaking with ice (many recipes are on line for that activity!). Also, you may want to remove the Kahlua if you are serving kids. Enjoy!
Kahlua Ice Cream:
You will need an ice cream maker for this recipe and at least 4-6 hours to freeze the ice cream maker cylinder:
2 cups whole milk
1 cup heavy cream
3/4 cup superfine white sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbs Kahlua
Place an ice cream maker cylinder in the freezer overnight.
In a large mixing bowl, mix the sugar, milk, cream, extract and Kahlua until the sugar is fully incorporated. There may be a little sugar residue on the bottom of the bowl so try to stir that into the liquid mixture as much as possible.
Remove the cylinder from the freezer and add in the mixture. Turn the ice cream maker on and let stir for about 20 minutes or until the ice cream mixture is sold. It won't be as hard as ice cream that is in the freezer but will no longer be liquid.
Place the now solid mixture into a freezerproof glass, stainless or plastic tupperware and place in the freezer. The ice cream around the edges of the cylinder may be tough to get out but use a very hard plastic spatula to remove all of it.
Place in the freezer overnight or at least for a couple hours until it is the consistency you like.
Serve and enjoy!

There is one thing that my husband cannot stand about me during the summer time. While the weather might be sweltering outside, I can always be found covering up my less than favorite body parts. The biggest offenders are my calves, knees and my thighs. For as long as I can remember, I've hated my lower body. I've been blessed with a small waist but have inherited the genes of my European born grandmothers and am a pear through and through. I do not have the body of a ballet dancer. Rather, I have the frame of a potato farmer.
And that's why, when I recently saw a survey from CoolSculpting® about the parts of the body women hide most in the summertime, I was not surprised. It turns out that 88% of women believe there is one or more area of their body that needs improving before they are "bikini ready." While 74% are unhappy with their stomachs, I'm part of the group that does whatever they can to hide their thighs (54%) and butt (38%) at all costs.
In fact, in the survey, 63%of women have used various "thigh-hiding" tactics before -- including keeping shorts over their bathing suits (30%), refusing to wear a bathing suit (29%), buying a specific bathing suit that hides their thighs (25%) or refusing to wear shorts at all (22%). It's already July 24 and I haven't even put on a bathing suit yet. Sad, but true.
Among those who employ "thigh-hiding" techniques, 89 percent agree that even while hiding their thighs, they do not feel the best about their appearance. Yup, that would be me.
Finally, fifty-eight percent of women feel stuck with their body type and 48 percent of women do not believe that their body reflects their diet and exercise regime. I can be found at the gym at least three times a week and do a lot of walking now that I have an incredibly energetic puppy. I even own a Fitbit and work hard at achieving 10,000 steps a day. But alas, my thighs are still my arch nemesis.
If you're like me and have considered removing stubborn fat from your lower half that doesn't seem to go away no matter how much you diet or exercise, then the CoolSculpting procedure could be a great option for you. CoolSculpting is the #1 non-invasive body sculpting procedure with more than one million treatments performed worldwide. It's also the only FDA-cleared procedure that uses a patented cooling technology for long-term fat reduction. CoolSculpting uses proprietary technology to deliver controlled cooling to target fat. Treated fat cells crystalize (freeze) and die. The dead fat cells are then naturally eliminated from the body, and they will not come back.
The treatment results in a noticeable and measurable reduction of fat in the treated areas, and the treated fat is gone for good. Most patients can start to see results as soon as three weeks following treatment, with the most dramatic results occurring over a period of one to three months. Every patient is unique, so patients are encouraged to talk to their physicians about a customized treatment plan as part of the initial consultation. Additional treatments in the same or multiple areas may enhance the desired aesthetic effect. Visit the CoolSculpting website to locate a CoolSculpting doctor near you. Lucky for me, there's actually one right across from my office!
