This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Riondo Prosecco for IZEA Worldwide. All opinions are 100% mine. (MSG for 21+)

As a blogger, vlogger, wife, step-mother, grandmother, aunt, and caretaker life can get real crazy, real quick.  I am constantly being pulled this way and that.  It is in this season in life that I discovered quickly the importance of self-care.  I need these simple moments to refill my tank so that I can give my best to everyone in my life.  

That is why I am partnering today with Riondo Prosecco, the #1 Prosecco in Italy, to share with you three simple ways you can unwind each week.  Riondo is an authentic Italian sparkling wine that embodies the easy Italian lifestyle.  The best part?  Riondo's affordable price let's you live that laidback Italian life anytime.  I love the bright smooth flavor and I know you will too, so...

Mushroom and Swiss Burger Casserole Recipe

Chateau Dumplings provided the dumplings in this recipe, but it is in no way sponsored.  I just genuinely like the product.

There are two things I love, a great burger and a good fridge forage.  I know you're familiar with a great burger, but a fridge forage is where you go through your refrigerator and pantry to come up with meals that don't require going to the store.  That's what inspired this Mushroom & Swiss Burger Casserole Recipe.  I was hardcore jonesing for a mushroom and swiss burger, but came across these Chateau Dumplings in my freezer the company had sent me a while back.  A light went off and I was like CASSEROLE!  

Packed with all the rich flavor you get from a great burger combined with these tender pillows of goodness this Mushroom & Swiss Burger Casserole is OUT-OF-THIS-WORLD!  I know you're going to love it so...

Chicken Noodle Casserole Recipe

This recipe has a funny story to go with it.  I was not what you would call a rebellious teen.  Honestly, I was pretty good.  The one naughty thing I did growing up is occasionally skip school.  My friend Melissa and I would catch the easy rider bus to her house and hang out there while her mom was working and she would always make these weird concoctions for us to eat.  This was probably my first experience at really cooking for myself. day she made chicken and noodles.  She literally popped open a can of chicken, mixed it with cream of chicken soup, and added egg noodles.  I was a little skeptical, but I'm going to keep it 100, IT WAS DELICIOUS.  Fast forward 22 years later and that simple dish inspired this Chicken and Noodle Casserole Recipe.  

Pack full of savory chicken, tender vegetables, luscious gravy, and noodles it just doesn't get any better.  I know you're gonna love this one so...

Bacon Chicken Ranch Casserole Recipe

Can you believe we are already in November!?!  I can't.  This year just seems to be passing us by so quickly.  With everything in me I'm trying to slow down and savor the moments as they come, but it gets harder and harder especially since Christmas started poking its head out around the beginning of September.  One thing I am certain about is the fact that November just lends itself to casseroles.  Here in West Virginia we LOVE a good casserole.  I think it's because they're easy, always tasty, and can be prepared in advance.  Take this Bacon Chicken Ranch Casserole Recipe for example.  

Using a few simple ingredients you probably have on hand, this meal is ready in no time, and its something the entire family will love.  I know you're gonna wanna try this one so...

A Slimy Fizz Cocktail Recipe

This post is intended for an audience of adults age 21 and older. This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc., BACARDÍ® and The Coca-Cola Company. All opinions are mine alone. #TrickYourTreat #CollectiveBias

Halloween is just around the corner and one thing I do is host a Halloween movie night with all my closest girlfriends. We select a movie, have all sorts of themed food, and of course...a signature cocktail!  This year I am partnering up with BACARDÍ® Superior rum and Sprite® to bring you this really fun Slimy Fizz!

This drink is super interactive and hits all of your senses with its SNAP, CRACKLE, FIZZ, and POP!  I know you're gonna love it so...

Let's Get Started!

For this Slimy Fizz Cocktail Recipe you will need a few simple ingredients:

  • 2 oz of BACARDÍ® Superior rum
  • 1 7.5 oz can of Sprite
  • 2 Scoops of Lime Sherbet
  • 1 Sachet of Pop Rocks
  • Lime Juice, to rim glass

To begin you will need to rim your glass using lime juice and pop rocks. The pop rocks create a fun sound effect as texture to your drink.  

To rim your glass you will simply dip the rim in the lime juice and then...

Into the pop rocks.  

Next add the lime sherbet to the glass.  

This adds sweetness and a fun foaming effect.  

Now add the 2 oz. of BACARDÍ® Superior rum.  

You know I am all about seasonal living so using BACARDÍ® rum makes the most sense because of the cool bat on the bottle. Also, I like using BACARDÍ® rum in this drink because it's super smooth and just allows people to be themselves.  

Now pour in the Sprite®.  

This adds the fun fizz element to the drink.

I like to add a few drops of green food coloring for effect and add a cute straw as well!

Top it off with a few extra pop rocks and you are ready! This fun interactive cocktail is sure to keep any Halloween party exciting and for a limited time you can earn $3 off your purchase of BACARDÍ® Superior, Black, Gold, Flavors & Oakheart Spiced Rum using IBOTTA!  And for even more Halloween cocktail ideas visit the BACARDÍ® website for recipes. So have a great time this Halloween season and be sure to drink responsibly.  

As always...

Happy Reading, Happy Eating, and Happy Halloween,
