Low Fat Cornflake Chicken w/Honey Mustard Sauce
This recipe will give you the crispy texture of being fried without all those extra calories and fat.


Chicken Strips (I used breast this time but it is much better with tenders)
1 Egg
1 Tbsp Honey
1 Tsp Yellow Mustard
2 Cups crushed Corn Flakes
Dash of Black Pepper

1/4 Cup Dijon Mustard
2 Tsp Honey

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Mix egg, honey, and mustard in bowl. In a separate bowl mix crushed corn flakes and pepper. Dip chicken in egg batter, then roll in corn flake mixture until completely coated. Place chicken on baking sheet. Bake for 15 minute or until thoroughly cooked.
While this is baking mix dijon and honey to use as your dipping sauce.

Lauren Nicole Gifts Review/Giveaway (Closed)

Just recently I was introduced to the cutest jewelry made by Lauren Nicole Gifts. Jennifer@Momma D and Da Boyz was running a giveaway & the prize was a Hand Stamped Silver Mommy Necklace - I was lucky enough to win!

Lauren Nicole Gifts was created by a crafty Army wife named Denise Freidhoff, who always dreamed to one day become a "sew-er." In 2004 she decided to turn her hobby into a company which she named Lauren Nicole, LLC (named after her niece).
Lauren Nicole Gifts offers a large variety of personalized jewelry & monogrammed gifts that are adorable & affordable! On a budget & need a gift? You can find great gifts for $10-$20 or even $10 or less! There are just so many great items for everyone: kids, men, women, and even pets!

As a mom, I absolutely love the custom photo jewelry & the hand stamped silver because they can be personalized with your kids pictures or names. That is why I was so happy to win the Hand Stamped Silver Mommy Necklace! The Hand Stamped Silver Mommy Necklace is designed and hand stamped to order without the use of a machine. The hand stamped silver jewelry has a "hand made" look to it and the letter tools they use are not always perfectly sized or symmetrical which means that NO two pieces of jewelry are exactly alike!

After emailing my mailing info, my necklace arrived fairly quickly & in a beautifully decorated silver tin (pictured below). My husband & I are currently expecting our 3rd (and last!) child in October, so this is a great way to proudly display all 3 of my kids ♥ There is no need to worry about the necklace being gaudy because it's the perfect size/designed for everyday wear & can be worn with any outfit. The pendant comes in two sizes; the regular disk measures 1" in diameter and the larger disk measures 1.25" in diameter. The regular size can be hand stamped with up to 22 characters and spaces. The larger disk can be hand stamped with up to 32 characters and spaces. (I chose to put my kids' nicknames: Nani, Leah, & Jae.)

I am so happy to announce that Lauren Nicole Gifts has allowed The Frugalicious Mommy to giveaway a Hand Stamped Silver Mommy Necklace to one of our readers!

Eden Fantasys Review/Giveaway (Closed)

ATTENTION: Eden Fantasys is where you can buy adult toys, read sex toy reviews and join sex positive community. If you under 18 or feel uncomfortable reading/talking about sex related topics...PLEASE stop reading!

Sex toys - <span class=

Are you a fan of sex toys? Well not to sound perverted but I am! I think sex toys are a great way to spice up your sex life with your partner & also a great way to explore your body. I was offered by my new virtual buddy Drew from Eden Fantasys a chance to review a product. For a split second I thought about getting a Couples toy but I quickly changed my mind --- YES I'm selfish....I got myself the Orgasmic foreplay kit 1™ (Pictured below).

Here are a few specs for the Orgasmic foreplay kit 1™ :
  • Has multi-speed rotating rabbit vibrator and multi-use probe sleeve with a removable micro-stimulator.
  • Rabbit vibrator and the sleeve are made out of soft and super smooth jelly material for pliable, skin-friendly use
  • Underneath the neck, a series of plastic pleasure beads rotate clockwise or counter-clockwise for a stunning internal massage.
  • Butterfly-shaped clitoral attachment features two outstretched antennae to tickle and tease the clitoris with unmatched vibration.
  • Controlled by the large base that offers easy mobility and superior handling with four distinct buttons for independent pleasure.
I absolutely love my new toy & it is a great substitute for a husband! Haha until my husband returns from his deployment this pink toy is my new best friend. If you are looking for a quiet toy then this is not the toy for you. The rabbit vibrator is quiet but once you turn on the button for the rotating beads, it gets a little noisy. However, the Orgasmic foreplay kit 1™ works wonders so I really don't mind the noise & besides who is really thinking about the noise anyways?!?!

At Eden Fantasys, there is something for everyone: sex toys for women, men, couples, lingerie, bondage/fetish, & sooooo much more! What I thought was awesome was the discreet packaging! My toy was delivered in your standard priority box with a label stating it was sent from: Web Merchants, Inc. --Eden Fantasys is committed to their customer's privacy, check it out.--

The Frugalicious Mommy Team is happy to announce that Eden Fantasys is offering one of our lucky readers their choice of any item $50 or less!

Personalize Your Phone with a Coveroo!

I bet your asking yourself what is a Coveroo?
Well ask no more, it's a cover that personalizes the back of your phone, MP3 player, or gaming device. No not a sticker! Coveroos are unique because they start with a back cover that is identical to the one you know and love. Then they use state of the art lasers and machines to transfer your chosen design to the cover. No worries because Coveroos offer you the same quality and durability of the cover that came with your phone.

Coveroo was nice enough to send me one of my own to review. I choose the Cow Girl Chick from the Tattoo Johnny collection. I picked this one because it fits me, I'm a CHL instructor by day and I thought this one was so cute. Best of all it won't peel or rub off. Choose from over 1,000 designs, from the NBA or Marvel superheroes to Garfield, The Simpsons or Star Trek. You can also choose from unique designs or upload your own!

The whole process is simple! You choose your design, then choose your brand/model of phone, & BAM you're done...well after you purchase it of course! When you receive it, simply remove your old backing and replace with your Coveroo. Looks great and fits perfect.

Try it out for yourself!
Head on over to Coveroo & use the coupon code: FRUGALCOVEROO to get $3 off your purchase of a Coveroo.

Fitness Friday-Week 3

Well it has been yet another bad week for me due to the fact that fatigue has returned! I will be 26 weeks pregnant on Saturday & boy have I been exhausted. I managed to squeeze in EA Sports Active once this week, however, I will be working out tomorrow + I'm going swimming.

On a good not my weight has dropped from 159 to 156.5! I have been suffering from sporadic nausea (ugh...morning sickness at 26 weeks?!)so this is probably the cause for my weight loss. in addition to that I have been loading up on veggies & fruit. Although I feel bad for not working out that much this week, I have been busy doing other activities that have kept me active.

That pretty much sums my week up. I feel like such a lazy blob for not working out much BUT my body is telling me to sleep, so sleep I must do! :)

Hope everyone had a better week than me!

Trim Down Thursday (Closed)

Well it is now day 24 of my RightSize weight lose program. My weight lose has slowed down a bit but I guess that's expected. After seeing my weight I said to myself, what am I doing wrong?? Well I noticed that I was eating my sensible meal at a not so sensible time. Everyone knows eating late is bad but I was eating my dinner about between 7-9. I should know better but I guess in my mind I was thinking what the heck I'm only eating one meal so it will be fine. So this week I plan on eating my dinner at a sensible time.

I have told you before about the great taste of RightSize but I here is another great recipe. I sliced 1/2 a banana and put in the freezer, later that day I used the frozen slices, 8 oz of orange juice, scoop of the Skinni Vanilla, and a little crushed ice. I tried this before minus the frozen banana but the banana makes it even better. Well my Rightsize smoothie tasted just like an Orange Julius. Do you remember those Orange Julius stands in the mall, or am I just showing my age?

Okay so here it is my total weight lose so far.............................................................

I'm now at 190 (two pounds down from last week)

I can't wait to get out of my 90's, next week I'll be there. Yippeeeee
