Happy New Year!

Start the Year Clean and Fresh with Clorox

The holidays are over. I hope you enjoyed them as much as we did. Now, we look forward to the grueling drudgery of packing away all those decorations and cleaning every nook and cranny of the house for the New Year. I thought I would introduce you to my favorite NEW cleaning product—Clorox® Disinfecting Wipes with Micro-Scrubbers available at Target.

We all know that underneath and behind all those glorious holiday displays seethe all kinds of dirt and grime that has not seen a really good cleaning since Thanksgiving. They are everyone’s dirty little secrets.

Well, the New Year is here, and it is time to come clean. All that holiday cooking and baking takes a toll on your kitchen and appliances. The quick wipe-downs that worked around your busy holiday schedule, leaves you in need of something more thorough. Factor in that it is the middle of cold and flu season, and a good cleaning and disinfecting cannot be more important for your family’s health.

I know you all have used Clorox® Disinfecting Wipes before, and if you are like me, you love them. Those convenient pop-top bottles stay well stocked in my supply closet. But now, there is a new Clorox® product available that has quickly found its way to my cleaning heart. It was easy to add the Micro-Scrubber Wipes to my cleaning arsenal for those tough jobs.

Clorox now offers a second type of disinfecting wipes–upping the toughness of their wipes by adding Micro-Scrubbers to one side. These NEW scrubby textured wipes are thicker and more absorbent to scour away the toughest messes such as soap scum and grease, with the same great disinfecting power killing 99.9% of germs. With these added strengths for durability and hardiness, you can clean and disinfect 2-times the surface area.

I use my regular Clorox wipes for my light cleaning and disinfecting jobs; but now, I use the new Micro-Scrubbers Wipes for my toughest jobs.

10 Great Ways to Use Clorox® Disinfecting Wipes with Micro-Scrubbers

  • Micro-scrubbers are perfect for cleaning the non-skid bottom in your tub.
  • Wipe down sinks, shower, and vanity daily to keep that tough soap scum at bay.
  • Scrub and disinfect your cutting boards.
  • Clean up tough spills and grease from your counters.

  • Great for cleaning appliances—ovens, stovetops, laundry spills, detergent dispensers, toaster grime, microwave splatter, refrigerator inside and out (those grimy handprints on the handles, dried-on spills), etc.
  • Have glitter glued to your craft table? What about the paint drips or other crafting messes? Micro-scrubbers are just the thing you need.
  • Sticky doorknobs, doorjambs, and light switches.
  • Clean grout, muddy footprints, and spills on floors.

  • Make easy work of pet messes and litter boxes.
  • Keep your patio furniture clean and ready to use.

My supply closet stores both types of Clorox® Disinfecting Wipes, those with Micro-Scrubbers and those without. Now, all my cleaning needs are met with one easy swipe of a wipe. And, bonus, they are available at Target, so it is easy to pick-up on my usual runs to Target! There is nothing I love more than clean and convenient.

Make your cleaning easier in the New Year; add Clorox® Disinfecting Wipes with Micro-Scrubbers to your Target shopping list today!

World Pasta Month In October!

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Buca di Beppo® for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

October Is World Pasta Month

Imagine the Pastabilities!

October is World Pasta Month; so, come celebrate and Create Your Own Pasta Bowl at Buca di Beppo.

Imagine yourself in a one-of-a-kind festive atmosphere surrounded by kitchy vintage collectibles and photographs. The eclectic décor brings fun, laughter, and an undeniable energy to this Italian restaurant.

What really makes Buca di Beppo special for the entire familia, is the food—traditional classic Italian recipes served family style and cotto a puntino (cooked to perfection). The delizioso antipasti (appetizers), insalate (salads), and pizzas are wonderful add-ons for the amazing entrees and. pasta dishes on a regular basis.

However, right now, you can create your own personal pasta bowl in honor of World Pasta Month—imagine the pastabilities! Starting at just $7.50 per person, and in 5 delicious steps, your pasta bowl will be on its way to your table in no time. What are the five steps to Create Your Own Pasta Bowl?

  1. Pick your favorite Pasta
  2. Select your Sauce
  3. Choose your Veggies
  4. Pick your Protein
  5. Season It.

It is as simple as that, and your tummy will thank you. Take just a moment to Calma e gesso (pause and think). Envision your custom, authentic pasta bowl. That perfectly cooked pasta, the flavorful sauce, the color and crunch of veggies, the chicken, prosciutto, meatballs, spicy or mild sausage, and your favorite seasonings…let your senses take over. Doesn’t it far venire l’acquolina in bocca (make your mouth water)?

Here’s a few fun facts about pasta. Can you believe that pasta is so popular in the United States that 24% of the global consumption of pasta is by Americans – the largest of any country in the world? Americans consume 6 billion pounds of pasta each year with the average American consuming 20 pounds of pasta annually. Now, that’s a lotta pasta!

Luke and I plan to take Rory and Biscuit to celebrate World Pasta Month. You know, a little grilling (of the new boyfriend) over pasta is so much friendlier than a heat lamp and lie detector! If he’s good, maybe we’ll even indulge in a little dessert: Chocolate Chip Cannoli, Tiramisu, the Dolce Platter…just some of the tempting treats to choose from.

You can bet we will be submitting our #PastaSelfie!

You won’t leave Buca di Beppo hungry, but you will leave eager to plan your next visit. Prendere la palla al balzo farsi due fili (seize the opportunity to eat spaghetti)!
