They’ve done it again!  The creative culinary experts who brought such innovative breakfast favorites as stuffed “Waffullicious” Waffles and Brioche French Toast have once again found a way to surprise and delight guests with a new and unique breakfast item that is sure to become a fast favorite:  Criss-Croissants™.

Breakfast lovers the world over have long enjoyed the unique taste and texture of the classic French croissant—that delicate, buttery flaky pastry that practically melts in your mouth.  Now, IHOP restaurants will introduce guests to a brand new way to savor that treat—by taking that distinctive dough and baking it in a waffle iron so that you have the luscious taste of a croissant with the distinctive criss-crossing of the waffle iron pattern, and voila!  Criss-Croissants!

StrawberryRhubarbCrissCroissant

Strawberry Rhubarb Criss-Croissant

A warm, freshly made croissant that’s baked in a waffle iron. It’s folded, filled with luscious cream & topped with vibrant, sweet sliced strawberries & rhubarb to add just the right amount of tartness.

BlackberryLemonadeCrissCroissant

Blackberry Lemonade Criss-Croissant

A croissant baked hot and fresh in a waffle iron. It’s then folded and filled with bright lemonade cream & topped with sweet blackberries. A truly unique breakfast experience.

Nicole’s take:  OMG I always love IHOP’s special promotions but this one is the best I have ever had.  The new criss-croissants are just delicious.  So innovative and unique! We got to try both flavors and the blackberry lemonade was our favorite.  They were so flaky and buttery and the filling was sweet and creamy.  I know sometimes they make these special menu items permanent – this should be one of them!

It’s tax time! My favorite time of the year, lol! Not so much but I do have some important tips for you this tax season!

Here are my top 3 tax tips to help you through tax season whether it’s your first year filing or you’re a senior citizen!

1. Stay organized! As the year goes on you should be putting away all of the documents you might need for your taxes. For me that means a lot of receipts, documentation for my HRA and FSA accounts and any charitable contributions I give. I also keep track of medical expenses like mileage to and from doctors since we have had some crazy medical expenses the last few years with the babies. I make a file on January 1 and keep it out in my office so I can just add the receipts and papers I need.

2. Be prepared! There is nothing worse than sitting down to do your taxes and finding that documents you need are missing! Make a checklist that you can use each year with all of the items you need. For me I always forget things like my checkbook register so I can see how much we paid in estimated quarterly taxes as well as documents related to my house like the real estate tax bill!

3.  Keep in a safe place! I keep copies of the taxes I file for 10 years. That is a long time and in the last 10 years I have moved numerous times. It’s important you have copies should you ever be audited. I keep my taxes in this Guardian Storage Box from Sentry Safe. It’s perfect for holding important documents like tax returns and this way I always know where they are!

The Guardian Storage Box is the only long term storage container that is proven to protect your items from fire, water and other environmental damage. Designed to protect your important business documents, it can hold both letter and legal size papers. Two latches secure the lid in place to keep out debris. Units are also stackable to provide a convenient storage solution even when spaces is limited.

Tax time can be depressing if you owe taxes or happy if you get a refund. But either way it helps if you follow these tips!

I am a member of the Master Lock Live Secure Safety Squad and receive compensation for my participation. All opinions are my own.

cvs

Nicole’s take:  I love how concerned CVS is for the health of their customers.  Their initiative to stop selling cigarettes is one I really admire and for Heart Health month this month their Gold Emblem Abound and radiance PLATINUM lines are innovative! I received a few of the products from these lines and am so impressed. 
trailmix
The Gold Emblem Abound Omega-3 Trail Mix was so delicious and the mix of items in the mix was perfect.  I had it as a snack one morning and was satisfied for a long time! I took Co-Q-10 when I was trying to get pregnant and know how important of a supplement it is.  The steel cut oats are a new favorite of the babies for breakfast!

As you may have seen, CVS supports customers on their path to better health and recently introduced two private brand labels, the Gold Emblem Abound healthy food and snack line as well as radiance PLATINUM, a new line of premium supplements and vitamins that are 100% preservative-free.  Both of these product lines underscore the company’s commitment to healthy living.

 

Whether you’re giving the gift of heart health to that special someone this Valentine’s Day or looking to incorporate healthier snacking options and supplements into the everyday lives of your family, the Gold Emblem and radiance lines from CVS/pharmacy can help!
