I think every new parent looks for a miracle to help their baby when that first fussy fit arrives.

Typically during te first week home from the hospital, adjusting to life and formula/breastmilk, your new baby is bound to fuss a bit.  Usually tiny gas bubbles are the problem and they can be fixed with mylicon drops of fennel when my boys were young.

Now,  there is an organic alternative that doesn’t only help with gas,  but any uncomfort your babies belly may feel, even hiccups!

Let’s take a look at some of the brand’s and what my fav’s are!

Hyland’s is well known for its homeopathic remedies and trusted by parents everywhere. I know people will know their teething tablets, but I’m the biggest fan of their Cold N’ Cough medicine. It’s safe for ages 2+ and seems to really help when my kids have colds. I’ve used it the last year since they’ve put it into stores.

Noyah prides itself on 2 things. HEALTH & BEAUTY combined. With all natural beauty products, you can feel good about the products you’re buying. Even better, right now, for every item you purchase and tag online, Noyah will donate a lip balm to the homeless.
SheaMoisture offers some wonderful alternatives to your everyday lotions like b&b and Vaseline. It’s amazing smelling and keeps your skin glowing all day.
Goddess Garden has some bad-ass products! Essential oils, sun repair products and sun screens. They even have a monthly subscription box if oils that are hand picked for you. Everything is free shipping over $35!

Babyganics offers a wide range of organic items for baby. The most well known, and one I love the most is their hand sanitizer. We were stocked on this for both of my children as babies and no one was allowed to touch or hold them until they sanitized! The best part is there is virtually no harsh smell and no alcohol drying out your skin so it’s safe to use as often as you want.
Jack ‘n Jill is representing with the all natural baby toothpaste. I wish i had this when my children were infants. Starting healthy habits young are key.
Ella’s Kitchen has the squeezable foods that are easy for parents and yummy for children. My kids were never a fan of the squeeze pouches unfortunately but I’ve always envied those who has kids who were. Easy to throw in your diaper bag and go!

Ishga Organic Skincare has provided some of the top skin care products to the US. Ish-what? Foreign is usually a sign that it might be some undiscovered secret to us Americans and these Scottish Seaweed skincare products are going to be all the new rage.

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Hyland’s and Promotional Partners. Uses for Hyland’s products are based on traditional homeopathic practice. They have not been reviewed by the Food and Drug Administration.

 

 

Orange Creamsicle Souffle with Nellie’s Free Range Eggs + FREE Egg Giveaway

Anyone who knows me knows that I love to cook. I love trying new recipes and putting my own spin on things.

Have you seen the video’s floating around? You know, the one’s with the amazing desert and entree’s? They make it look so simple, and I cannot help but think “Pinterest Fail” when I see some of the technique’s they do.

One that caught my eye recently is the little souffles made inside of lemons. They are so fancy and decadent, yet so simply put together. I knew I had to try it. Luckily, I had a bag of navel oranges I just purchased, and my Nellie’s Free Range Eggs I got to try, and I wanted to put my own creative spin on it.

Orange Creamsicle Souffle’s. Yes.

13342091_10209489879544417_1648187676_n

Using the Nellie’s eggs felt so right. The best of the best, inside such a fancy-smancy desert. They look so fresh, and the packaging is awesome as well. It is a cute little plastic on plastic carton that helps protect the eggs inside from getting smooshed. They are natural, free range eggs, not that other crap, so they are a little more pricey (they were $4.49 a dozen at my local grocery store).

13334309_10209489885944577_1920123353_o

 

I used 4 fairly large navel oranges for this recipe (pictured above). Here is what you need;

  • 4 Oranges
  • 2 tbs All Purpose Flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar (divided 1/4 & 1/4)
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1 tbs Milk
  • Zest from oranges
  • 3 eggs (separated)

Using Nellie’s Free Range Eggs, divide all 3 eggs into 2 bowls – egg whites in one, egg yolks in the other.

I put the egg whites into the mixing bowl so I can get the meringue started. You have to whisk the egg whites an 1/4 cup of sugar until soft peaks form. I let that run while I started the rest.

I took each orange an cut the bottoms just a bit to make them flat so I can stand them up straight without falling over or rolling around. Then, I cut the tops off, an dug out the insides as neatly as I could (watch you do not poke any holes in the orange peel!) Then I put the pulp inside of small strainer and squeezed out the juices. Feel free to eat all of the yummy left over pulp!

13323903_10209489883984528_176644088_o

 

Now, mix a 1/4 of the juice from the oranges, and the Vanilla extract & milk. Add this to the egg yolk, flour, and remaining 1/4 white sugar. Whisk and then add to a double boiler or in my case, a heat safe bowl over a pot of boiling water. The key is to keep whisking until the egg mixture thickens up real nice. Then, remove it from the heat, and continue to whisk until the mixture cools. It should be nice an smooth without lumps.

Then, when your meringue has soft peaks, fold it slowly  into the cooled egg mixture. The last step is to pour this mixed into your open orange shells a little more then half way. They will rise significantly, so do not overfill!

Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes or until the tops have browned a bit. Then top with powdered sugar and serve warm or cooled.
