Mommy Vlogger – Stacie Connerty highlights our offers from Vapur and Kidecals

divinemissmommy_blog

See how Mommy Vlogger Stacie Connerty of thedivinemissmommy.com uses our Plum District Back-to-School offers from Vapur and Kidecals.  Plus, new Plum members can enjoy an EXTRA 20% off any single Plum District offer now through August 31st! Enter code “STACIE20″ at checkout.

We love to hear how people name their blogs and this one is a great story. One day, Stacie and her husband wrote down all their nicknames for everyone in their family of six. When coming up with their list, they realized that there were no nicknames for Stacie.  So, her 4-year-old daughter – also known as “Sassypants” – accurately named her “Miss Mommy” and then said or “You could be Divine Miss Mommy.” And there became www.divinemissmommy.com.

Stacie’s blog helps families find products she has reviewed and highlighted as ‘favorites’ – plus you’ll learn about the latest and greatest giveaways. Readers also enjoy stories about her family and their latest travels (along with advice and travel info).

Recently, Stacie picked up two Plum offers from Vapur and Kidecals to help get her kids ready for Back to School.  Check out this video to meet Stacie and see what she has to say about these great brands!

- BPA-free, collapsible water bottles from Vapur - Featured in Pregnancy Magazine, Parenting Magazine, Peekaboo Magazine, Better Homes and Gardens, Women’s Health, and more. Vapur’s eco-friendly, reusable water bottles and Quenchers fit perfectly into kids’ backpacks and lunch bags!  Plus, the Quenchers come with a pack of decorative stickers and a cool carabiner to attach their bottles to backpacks or sports bags.

- Custom labels for Back to School and traveling + $5 bonus and FREE SHIPPING from Kidecals - Kidecal’s super stylish name labels are durable, washable, and apply to all belongings (clothes, shoes, pencil boxes, backpacks, toys, and more!)  No more losing things at school because these personalized labels STAY ON and adhere to any surface.

Thank you, Stacie, for giving Plum District a great review!  We love your mommy blog!

An Exclusive Offer for Plum Members:

Today, save $80 on a 5-pack of Chef Toni’s after-school, farm-to-table cooking classes – featured in TimeOut NY Kids! CLICK HERE for this special offer.

Kids will learn about sustainable ingredients, healthy food choices, how to read recipes and labels, prepare meals, and so much more. In the end, they’ll bring home a Culinary Graduation Certificate!

Last month, we highlighted Master Chef Toni Wiliard-Young – mom of four and Owner/Operator of Chef Toni’s Cooking Adventures (CTCA). She shared two delicious, family-friendly recipes - Vegetable Lo Mein and Chicken Stroganoff - and offered a great discount on her International Cook & Play Summer Camp.

Summer is winding down at Chef Toni’s Cooking Adventures, and they’ve visited every part of the world, learning and enjoying the cuisine of other cultures. Chef Toni would like to thank all of her Junior Chefs for a great summer, and she wishes them the best for the upcoming school year!

Today, to prepare for fall and Back to School, Chef Toni is turning to the luck of the Irish with a classic dish: Shepherd’s Pie.

It’s a healthy and hearty meal that’s fun to make – and will comfort those sad faces as summer comes to an end! Gather the freshest, organic ingredients you can find to prepare this dish. It’s sure to give them substantial energy for busy school days!

Note for parents: This dish tastes even better the next day, so you can easily prepare ahead and enjoy it for days to come!

As the Irish would say: “A cabin with plenty food is better than a hungry castle!” Chef Toni hopes this recipe fills your home with joy and that you’ll be sure to visit Chef Toni’s Cooking Adventures again soon!

Chef Toni’s Amazing Shepherd’s Pie:

Ingredients:

2 pounds potatoes (such as russet), peeled and cubed

2 tablespoons sour cream or softened cream cheese

1 large egg yolk 1/2 cup cream (for a lighter version use chicken broth)

Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

1 3/4 pounds ground turkey

1 carrot, peeled and chopped

1 onion, chopped

2 tablespoons butter

2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

1 cup beef stock or broth

2 teaspoons Worcestershire

1/2 cup frozen peas

1 teaspoon sweet paprika

2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves

Directions:

Boil potatoes in salted water until tender, about 12 minutes. Drain potatoes and pour them into a bowl. Combine sour cream, egg yolk and chicken broth.  Add the mixture into potatoes and mash until potatoes are almost smooth.

While potatoes boil, preheat a large skillet over medium high heat. Add oil to hot pan with turkey. Season with salt and pepper. Brown and crumble for 3 or 4 minutes. Add chopped carrot and onion to the meat. Cook veggies with turkey 5 minutes, stirring frequently. In a second small skillet over medium heat cook butter and flour together 2 minutes. Whisk in broth and Worcestershire sauce. Thicken gravy 1 minute. Add gravy to turkey and vegetables. Stir in peas.

Preheat broiler to high. Fill a small rectangular casserole with meat and vegetable mixture. Spoon potatoes over meat evenly. Top potatoes with paprika and broil 6 to 8 inches from the heat until potatoes are evenly browned. Top casserole dish with chopped parsley and serve.

One of the most debilitating side effects of pregnancy is morning sickness. Psi Bands are FDA-cleared wristbands for nausea relief, and they also happen to be fashionable, reusable and affordable. By using acupressure techniques, these travel bands press on certain wrist areas to increase resistance to stimuli that might otherwise make one ill. There have been multiple studies (published in the British Journal of Anesthesia, MSN Journal of Nurse-Midwifery, and more) that have supported the effectiveness of this treatment.  For more information on Psi Bands, visit www.psibands.com.
