Spice Up The Food Trip!

This post brought to you by TABASCO® Original Red. All opinions are 100% mine.

My family loves food. We take our food quite seriously while having fun experimenting with different flavors and cultural food traditions. Some people go out of town for sightseeing or extreme sports adventures but my family goes food tripping :) Sometimes on a lazy day or a special occasion, we'd order in, be it Chinese noodles and dimsum or special mushroom burgers and kamote fries. However, the all-time favorite would be a hot, fully-loaded, meaty pizza with four cheeses and a stuffed crust! (Or if we're trying to be health conscious, an all-vegetable pizza with all the cheeses known to man!) 

Whatever it is we eat, we love to spice it up with TABASCO® Original Red. Have you had it with pizza? Eggs? Mac & Cheese? The options are endless! It's so much more than hot. Especially on pizza, meat is meatier and the cheese is so much more cheesier! My mouth waters just thinking of the juicy flavors TABASCO® Original Red unlocks and enhances so you get the best of every tasty bite. 

Staying in during movie nights or a game night is much more fun with good food readily on the table. I know it's football season and the Super Bowl is right around the corner so why don't you round up friends and family for a game-watching marathon? Check out the Game-Day Party Menu and Pizza Perfected for recipes and great ideas to help make TABASCO® Original Red part of your game day traditions! (Or any day for that matter!) They have great pizza varieties, dips, finger foods, chilis and wings!

Whatever the menu and wherever it is we food-trip, on the road, the living room or a restaurant, TABASCO® Original Red makes the experience extra special. We even keep those little sachets from the pizza deliveries as our emergency stash! :) So whenever we feel it, wherever we are, we always have TABASCO® Original Red on hand :)

Fire Up That Pizza!

This post brought to you by TABASCO® Original Red. All opinions are 100% mine.

Whenever there's a special occasion, the family eats out or orders in. Since we love food, it can be anything from Chinese noodles and dimsum to the classic burgers and fries. But of course, the all-time favorite would be a hot, heavenly, fully-loaded pizza with the works (meat, sausages, cheese, tomatos, peppers BUT no anchovies please!). For sure, it'll disappear in 15 minutes flat with my brothers around! My babies are still too young to demolish a slice on their own but Oona's working her way up to half a slice of a family size!

Of course, the pizza won't be complete without TABASCO® Original Red on it. I find that the sauce just brings out the flavor of the meat and cheese! Meat is meatier, cheese is cheesier and if you put it on eggs, they're even...eggy-er (Whut?! Haha!). It makes my mouth water just thinking about it now. It's really so much more than hot. TABASCO® Original Red unlocks or enhances the flavor of food so you can get the best of every bite.   M   Mm M M          The possibilities of TABASCO® Original Red+food is positively endless! 

Now that it's football season and the Super Bowl is right around the corner, why not make pizza and TABASCO® Original Red YOUR very own game day tradition? Visit Pizza Perfected for recipes and ideas to make your pizza extra special!

And why stop at football season? Game day can happen any day, for any game, be it basketball, hockey or even scrabble! It's a perfect excuse to have a family day and have a party of sorts! If the family wants more food, check out Game-Day Party Menu for ideas and recipes that I'm sure everyone's going to love! There are wings, chilis, dips and more finger foods for actually any occasion you can think of!

Of course, the most important thing to remember is for the family to eat together. That's truly what makes any meal and any tradition special!

Butt Paste, Anyone?

This post brought to you by Boudreaux's Butt Paste. All opinions are 100% mine.

I know it sounds weird but really, what else would you call diaper rash creams? :D Anyway, Oona had a lot of problems with rashes when she was still in nappies. So much so that she still remembers how irritating and sometimes painful they are. Now that she's older, she's really fastidious about her personal hygiene (wearing clean underwear, washing after using the potty, wiping dry and making sure the toilet seat is clean with sanitary sprays and wipes even in private CRs). I'm glad, not only because she's a girl, but also because I don't have to worry about things other than just rashes now that she's bigger (which could mean nastier skin problems).

I think we ran the gamut of rash creams, from ordinary zinc oxide, petroleum jellies and the more expensive ointments. What was really effective was the Boudreaux's Butt Paste my friend sent me one particularly painful time (for howling baby Oona's butt and our ears!). Specifically formulated by a pharmacist and a respected pediatrician, it has 16% Zinc Oxide to treat and help prevent diaper rashes and Peruvian Balsam to soothe irritations and promote healthy skin. It didn't dry and chafe her sensitive skin and continued protecting her sore bottom even as she wet her diaper again. And since Boudreaux's Butt Paste is pediatrician recommended, I have no worries for using the New All-Natural Formula they came up with for Olly.

Featured on shows like Oprah, The Today Show, ESPN and TLC, I was intrigued to see that they've developed other products as well, like a lip and cheek moisturizer for infants. You know how sensitive skin gets dry sometimes! They also have a shampoo and body wash!

The Butt Paste has a pleasant smell and is readily available in convenient and handy travel sizes of 1oz, 2oz, 3oz and 4oz flip top tubes, with a 16oz jar you can keep on the diaper changing table.  It goes on and cleans off easily though it can stain clothes a little, so be careful! 

To try it out, just click on over to their site and get your FREE SAMPLE! You can even use it for yourself! ;)

Baby Butt Paste!

This post brought to you by Boudreaux's Butt Paste. All opinions are 100% mine.

Diaper rashes have long been my nemesis. It can keep the baby up all night and diaper changes are a struggle. You can't use just any diaper rash cream because sometimes the baby ends up worse with an unknown irritant from the cream!

I know Boudreaux's Butt Paste sounds funny but it does its job really well! At first I thought it's just one of those novelty products that would be here today but eventually disappear from the shelves. However, they've been featured in a lot of shows like Oprah, Tonight, People Magazine, ESPN and While You Were Out TLC! They've even developed other products along the baby care line like a body wash and an infant lip and cheek moisturizer.

 Boudreaux's Butt Paste® was specifically formulated by a pharmacist and a respected pediatrician to protect baby's skin. It has 16% Zinc Oxide to treat and prevent nasty diaper rashes and Peruvian Balsam to soothe baby's irritated bottom and promote healthy skin. With a nice scent, you won't even mind using it on your rashes and sensitive skin.

In flip top cap tubes and handy travel size, it goes on and cleans off easily (though it might stain clothes a little, so just be careful). It's available in MANY convenient sizes of 1oz, 2oz, 3oz and 4oz tubes, and a 16oz jar to stand by on baby's diaper changing table.

Check them out for your FREE SAMPLE! :)
