Cinnamon Applesauce Ornaments!

I love Christmas! The giving, the decorations, the food, the family, watching my kids on Christmas morning. It truly is the most wonderful time of the year. Each year I like to try and do at least one new craft or recipe and include the kids.

You will Need
1 cup of applesauce
1 1/2 cups cinnamon 
2 Tablespoons cloves optional 
Small cookie cutters
string for hanging (Bought one from target and Michaels)

The ones pictured here I made two years ago, after Christmas is over I like to put them in a large plastic baggie and store them away. Kid you not they still smell just as strong as the day I made them. We are making more soon. They are good for ornaments, gift packaging, decor... They smell amazing!

Mix 1 cup of applesauce with 1 cup of cinnamon in a large bowl. Mix. Use your hands and Mix! Make sure you don’t miss any wet spots. Add the additional 1/2 cup of cinnamon. Add the cloves if you are using them ( I did not) If it’s too wet add more cinnamon, too dry add more applesauce.  It takes time to mix so don’t add cinnamon or applesauce till you’re absolutely sure it’s well mixed.
Scatter some cinnamon  and roll out applesauce/cinnamon dough . If the dough is too wet it will make a huge mess and stick to your rolling pin.
Use your cookie cutters to cut out shapes. I used a gingerbread man, candy cane and a heart cutter.
Preheat your oven to 200 degrees  Place on a oven mat or non stick pan. Stick the ornaments in the oven for an hour or more. The juice from the applesauce needs to evaporate. I left them in for 1.5 hrs.They should be hard. If they’re not, give them some more time in the oven.
Let them sit out overnight or for several hours, poke holes and add string! I even added some glitter.
Makes 20-30! Not Edible ! :)

Welch’s® Refreshingly Simple™ Review


When did everything get so complicated? We can’t even pronounce the names of half the characters on Game of Thrones, much less all the ingredients in our food. Welch’s® gets that, so they created Welch’s® Refreshingly Simple™. With flavors like Peach Mango, Concord Grape, Strawberry Raspberry, Orange Pineapple Apple, and Passion Fruit, Welch’s® Refreshingly Simple™ contains just a handful of honest ingredients and none of the stuff you don’t want. That means no artificial sweeteners, preservatives, artificial flavors or high fructose corn syrup—just simply wholesome deliciousness.

Welch’s® Refreshingly Simple™ is available in a variety of delicious flavors, including Peach Mango, Concord Grape, Strawberry Raspberry, Orange Pineapple Apple, and Passion Fruit. Find it in 59 oz. bottles ($2.99) and 8 oz. six-packs ($3.49) at retailers near you, including Walmart, Kroger and Publix, for starters.

The Peach Mango is really good! I not only received the free bottle but have more bought another juice already. The kids love it. The name fits it perfectly because it is Refreshingly Simple. The fact that there are no high fructose syrup or those other bad ingredients make me happy to serve it to my family! And what better to have PB&J sandwich with your juice!

I received the above items free provided by Welch's at no cost.

Disney© Frozen™ Kleenex® Tissues Review

Disney Frozen Kleenex Tissues

Kleenex Cool Touch* Tissue are made with a unique blend of ingredients, including cooling moisturizers and aloe. When Kleenex Cool Touch* Tissue comes in contact with your skin, body heat activates the formula to release cooling comfort to soothe a sore nose.

A new addition to our on-the-go packaging, Kleenex® Slim Packs are slim, stylish and easily fit in a backpack or back pocket. And they’re soft, strong and absorbent, of course!

Since Kleenex® tissues came on the market in 1924, it has been the No. 1 brand of facial tissue in the world and today is a global icon. For a product originally made of excess material, it certainly exceeded everyone's expectations!

Back Story of How Kleenex Started
Kleenex is our go to brand for tissues not only do they come in stylish designs, they are very soft for using on the face. When these were first designed it was trademarked Kleenex® and launched in 1924 as a makeup remover; a disposable substitute for face towels. The name Kleenex® is likely a combination of the word "cleansing" (shortened to "clean") while the capital "K" and the "ex" ending were adopted from Kotex®. It went on the following years as the best kept secret for Hollywood movie stars until Kimberly-Clark head researcher started using the tissues instead of a handkerchief and went on to serve as tissues for women, men and children.

I have purchased Kleenex for many years now myself. I find them a lot more softer for my face and hands than other kinds of tissues. Of course because of this my kids love them too. With cold season happening now My kids can take the slim packs to school, can easily fit into a pocket! 

These were provided to me at no cost. All opinions are my own!
