Mrs. Smith's Signature Deep Dish pies are sure to be a crowd pleaser. There are four different options to choose from. There is Dutch Apple Pie with Caramel Sauce, Cherry Pie with Butter Fudge Sauce, Peach Pie with Cream Cheese Icing, or Pumpkin Pie with Cream Cheese Icing. So what exactly is different about the deep dish pie than other Mrs. Smith's options? These deep dish pies use the same crust and the same filling but just offer MORE deliciousness in one pie.
The best thing about these delicious pies is that you can add to them to make them even more delicious! I love, love, love caramel so I would choose the Dutch Apple Pie with Caramel Sauce and then probably add a dollop of whipped cream and some more caramel. You can never, ever have to much caramel. Ever.

The winner of the Custom Family Rules art from Signs by Andrea is Christa! Congrats, you should be receiving an email from me to claim your prize!
This years tree and mantel is totally different than something I would pick out for myself. A friend of mine that moved gave me all of her Christmas decorations. Awesome, right!? I typically go for more of the woodsy, earthy theme but her colors were champagne, gold, and bronze with a a smidge of maroon. Way more glitz than I’m used to!

I purchased the print from Shutterfly in the 11x14 size. I then grabbed a 16x20 frame from Hobby Lobby and an 11x14 matte. I love the big frame!

My sister and my nephew both have eczema. To be honest, I didn’t know much about it other than that it was a skin condition. Here are a few things that I’ve recently learned about eczema. Eczema is a chronic inflammatory skin condition characterized by dry, itchy skin and visible skin rash. Atopic dermatitis is the most common form. When healthy, the external layer of your skin act as a protective barrier but for people with eczema, the skin has a deficiency in the external layer that allows the moisture to escape and causes chronic dryness. When skin is dry an unprotected, irritants can reach the sensitive layers below and cause uncomfortable itch flare-ups. People with eczema are more susceptible to irritants or allergens, which trigger inflammation-producing cells that result in itching and redness. WOW, having eczema really stinks!
While I don’t have eczema, I have seen my sister struggle with having it. It is estimated that 35 million Americans suffer from eczema. 70% of eczema cases start in children under 5 years of age.
Now there is a product to help treat eczema! NEOSPORIN® ESSENTIALS™ is the #1 doctor recommended brand for an over-the-counter ointment to help with eczema. There is a daily moisturizing cream, daily body wash, and anti-itch cream. Each product has a unique Relipid™ formula, which contains a lipid, humectant, emollient and botanical blend to help retain moisture that is essential for healthy looking skin.
The worst time for eczema is fall and winter. During the fall, try to keep stress low. Make sure to focus on a regular skin care routine. During the winter, try to keep skin warm and protected when outside. A thick, protective moisturizer helps with windburn. A humidifier in your bedroom and help to add moisture to the dry air and of course continue with a regular skin routine.

Who doesn’t love Duck Tape®? It can be used for so many things! Not to mention that Duck® Brand has done an awesome job at extending the options. I know that once upon a time the only option available was grey. Not anymore! Now you can choose from zebra, fun colors, stripes, and so much more. Did you know that Duck® brand has been around for 20 years? Me neither! They have been constantly innovating and offering solutions for America’s households.
They now have a new line of Holiday Duck Tape®. Is that not the cutest ever? It looks just like ribbon. I absolutely love the polka dots! I think that this would make the perfect wrapping for Christmas presents. It’s so festive. If you are super good with making things out of Duck Tape® you could even make bows or flowers to put on presents.
Don’t forget about your family and friends who love Duck Tape®. Wouldn’t this make such a great gift? This would also be a great gift idea for parties that have the gift exchanges. I’m sure you are going to at least one. Why not get something that is inexpensive and that everyone would love to have!?

The Holidays are qucikly approaching. That means that the pounds are about to quickly start piling on for most of us. Sometimes I dread the Holidays for this very reason! I have zero self-control. But the pounds don't have to pile on! Truvia® Baking Blend is a mixture of Truvia® natural sweetner and sugar. Truvia® offers a sugar-like texture and is perfect for baking. A 1.5 pound bag of Truvia® Baking Blends has the equivalent sweetness to 3 pounds of sugar. It offers 75% fewer calories than using sugar alone! I'll shave calories where I can! Escpecially during the Holidays.
Visit the Truvia® website for more tips and information on Truvia® Baking Blend. The website also offers recipes! These chocolate chip cookies only require 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp of Truvia® Baking Blend. There is 60% less sugar than what is in regular chocolate chip cookies. Rev up your chocolate chip cookie while also offering a lower calorie version! I bet that no one will even be able to taste the difference.
Have you ever used a sweetner in your recipes rather than sugar? Be sure to check out the website for many different recipes. There are quite a few for the Holidays. No worrying about the conversions from sugar to sweetner because the conversions are right there in the recipe.
On your next shopping trip, look for Truvia® sitting on the shelf. It is avaialbe at retail stores. Grab Truvia® rather than sugar to include in all of your upcoming Holiday treats. Save as many calories as you possibly can!
