Crockpot Sunday - Chicken Tacos

Here's another super easy, but super yummy (and versitle) crockpot recipe for chicken tacos.

3-5 frozen chicken breasts
1 16oz jar of salsa
1 packet of taco seasoning

Put everything in the crockpot and mix ingredients together. Cook on low for approximately 6-7 hours. When finished cooking, shred chicken with two forks.

Put in your favorite taco shell with your favorite ingredients.

I used soft taco shells, lettuce, shredded cheese, and sour cream.

Enjoy! :)

Candles By Victoria - February 2012 Order Review

Well, I told myself I wasn't going to be ordering anymore candles for a while until I get my stash down a little... it's overflowing! But, when I found out I was one of the February winners for the Blogging for Candles By Victoria contest (yes, Victoria has a contest each month where you can blog about CBV and she picks three winners each month to win a $50 giftcard.), I was ecstatic and of course had to order. That $50 giftcard was "burning a hole in my pocket".

So, here's what I got and hopefully it cure my itch to buy more until at least May when I can place a birthday order. :)

(Sorry this picture is sideways, I don't know what's up)

Scent Shots:

Butterfly Kisses - On cold throw, I get strong lilac and honeysuckle and if I sniff deep enough, the cantelope comes out a little bit. This reminds me a lot of Bella Swan with the lilac (which sort of mingles with the fruit to create a grape-y type scent, even though there is no grape). Might be a little too floraly for me, but my husband picked it out and really likes it, so we'll see.

Cinnabon- This one has been on my wish list for a while, and I was so excited to see that it was my free scent shot. It's a wonderful mix of a stronger bakery cinnamon with a sweet dough/icing note to it. I have a feeling this ones gonna be a strong bugger, but good!

St Lucia- A lot of people say this one reminds them of Tiffany-D and I get that, especially since they has a lot of the same notes in them - honeydew and melon. I feel like St Lucia is a lot softer than Tiffany-D. St Lucia has marshmallow and vanilla to mellow it out a bit. Tiffany-D has cotton candy, which makes it a bit sweeter.

Baby's Breath- This one is such a nice scent! A perfect mix of jasmine and vanilla. It's a very sweet, floraly, yet relaxing and clean type scent.

Divine Paradise- I got this one because Mackenzie (mheath1293) from the Pouring Pot did a review of this one and said it reminded her sooo much of YC Almond Cookies. When I first smelled this I felt it was a bit strong of the cherry almond scent, but as I've let it sit for a few days, it's blending into something beautiful. Right now I get a strong cake note, with a lot of cherries and a little pineapple. So, I was trying to compare this with Almond Cookie and decided to smell my scent shot of Divine Paradise and then my candle of Almond Cookie, and of course CBV blew it out of the water! After smelling my scent shot, I literally could not even smell the Almond Cookie candle AT ALL. I had my husband do the same thing, and he said, "I don't smell anything". So, of course, just goes to show you Victoria's triple scented candles are AH-MAZING!

Pink Bubblegum Crush- This is one of my favorites, and since I had a tight budget (of course I went over the $50 limit of the giftcard), I decided to just get this is a scent shot to hold me over until I can get a bigger candle in a few months. But, anyhow, this is suppposed to be a dupe of a particular soap, but I've never even been into this soap company's store, so I have no clue what it's supposed to smell like. But, in my eyes (or nose), Pink Bubblegum Crush = Swedish Fish.

Bermuda Triangle- My husband requested we try this one. It's supposed to have a lot of fruits in it - cantaoupe, honeydew, watermelon, along with citrus notes, and apple. I only get citrus notes from it - grapefuit, tangerine, and lime. But, it's a really nice blend. If you like citusy notes, I highly suggest this one!

22oz Tureen Halo Purple in Spellbound - This is one of my all-time favorite scents by CBV. I've reviewed it before, but it's a wonderful blend of apple and sweet cotton candy!

22oz Tureen Gem Blue in Tiffany-D- Beautiful scent in an absolutely stunning jar! Another one of my favorite scents by CBV. Wonderful scent of watermelon, honeydew, cotton candy, and vanilla!

24oz Mustard Jar in Elvis (sorry no picture)- I still have about half of a mustard jar in Elvis still left, but I figured I better stock up while I can. Elvis is a lovely mix of peanut butter and banana. And, when burning, it blends into such a sweet, comforting, cozy scent to me. Another favorite, for sure!
