Cabo Beach Cheeseburger + Walmart Gift Card Giveaway #CookingUpGood



About 4 years ago, I had the best burger of my life. My family was on vacation to Gulf Shores, Alabama and while my Mom watched our son my husband and I enjoyed a Date Night. I don’t know if it was the combination of the good company of my husband, the gorgeous view below or the giddiness of being child free, but I’ll never forget that burger…until now!

I’m always looking for delicious, easy and affordable recipes. Seems like a tall order right? With the Kraft Foods Cooking Up Good Hub, you can stop you’re looking! Kraft has created a fantastic page where you can watch technique videos from top-food bloggers to learn new kitchen skills and unlock coupons, create a collection of your favorite Kraft Recipes and be entered for a chance to win a $100, $250, or $1,000 Walmart gift card, plus find all the Kraft favorites your family loves.

I found some of the most delicious recipes on there and have pinned them all to my Summer #CookingUpGood Pinterest Board. The first recipe I had to make though was the Cabo Beach Cheeseburger. There’s just something about summer that screams burgers, of course. For some reason I never get too fancy with our burgers. We grill then, melt cheese on them and then eat them. I was intrigued to try the Cabo Beach Cheeseburger, which is just bursting with flavor!

Suave Products in my Bathroom

Our bathroom is stocked with Suave products and I thought I’d share with you some of my favorites!

- Suave Berry Body Wash: There are a ton of different scented body washes for kids but my son is a big fan of the Berry scent. I personally think he just loves the cute penguin!

- Suave 2-in-1 Surf’s Up Shampoo and Conditioner: With kids, the less products the better! That’s why I love the 2-in-1 of shampoo and conditioner. Plus, it smells delicious!

Suave Classic Clean 2-in-1 for Men: My husband has been using the 2-in-1 from Suave for years. It’s totally his scent and he loves it.

Humectant Shampoo and Conditioner: I’ve been using this from Suave for a few years. It moisturizes and leaves my hair so soft!

Tropical Coconut Shampoo and Conditioner: You’ll usually only find these bottles for $1 each, which you can’t beat! I love using this in the summer for that fantastic coconut smell!

There’s just something about vacuuming that I’m not crazy about. It scares my kids and I usually always have to go over a room several times since ours doesn’t have a great suction. Add in that darn cord that I’m always having to maneuver around and it’s a job that I like to pass off to my husband. Thanks to the Hoover Air Cordless Vacuum though, this is the ultimate cleaning hack.

The Hoover Air Cordless Vacuum uses LithiumLife technology for 50 minutes of run time and features a lightweight design {only 10 pounds!} in a a full-size vacuum. While it’s small, there’s no loss of suction and actually features the exclusive WindTunnel 3 technology with 3 channels of suction. Best of all though? It’s cordless! No more stepping around or tripping over a cord but you still get the function of a full-size vacuum.

The rest of your lifestyle is modern and updated with the latest technology. Why not your vacuum?
