O my yum!! If you’re anything like me, you look forward to those Big Games because they equal SNACKS!!!! My favorite sports teams love to let me down, so when it comes to any championship game, I’m a member of #TeamSnacks . You best believe you can find me chillen snack side! My sites motto is Eat Well, Look Fab, Travel Often after all ;-)
I’m pretty sure by now all of you know that hosting parties is what I do and making sure I serve the best snacks is what I’m known for! I love food and feeding my friends and family makes me ridiculously happy. Easy peasy, yet totally delicious recipes are my specialty, so when I discovered Great Day Farms Hard-Boiled Eggs at my local Walmart, I couldn’t wait to put them to use!!!!
I have a killer Game Day Deviled Egg recipe and it never would get used because I can’t stand the whole boiling, peeling process of hard boiled eggs. I consider myself a wannabe chef that can whip up pretty much anything, but hard boiled eggs? Half the time trying to boil them to perfection was near impossible. I hate to serve anything half asked, so I would just skip this bomb recipe to avoid any disappointment. Now that I know Walmart carries both 2pack & 6pack Great Day Farms Hard- Boiled Eggs in their deli section, my once retired game day recipe has made itself a regular fixture on my party menu!!!! This party host loves a good hostess hack, and the fact that these Great Day Farms Hard Boiled Eggs require zero boiling/pealing has been a total game changer!
Nothing better than getting cash back for your favorite hostess essentials right?!?!
Right now you can take advantage of this cash back Ibotta offer and earn $.25 off the 2-packs or $.50 off the 6-packs of Great Day Farms Hard Boiled Eggs when you buy them at your local Walmart! Just head to the deli section and toss them into your cart!!! You won’t regret it!
A yummy, easy peasy, full of protein, crowd pleasing recipe, conveniently located at Walmart AND money saving? SCORE!!!!
• 6 pack Great Day Farms hard boiled eggs
• 1/3 cup mayonnaise, plus 1 more for decoration
• 1/2 teaspoon yellow mustard
• 1 teaspoon sweet pickle juice
• Bacon Bits
• Salt & Pepper to taste
1. Take a Great Day Farms Hard-Boiled Egg & cut each egg in half lengthwise so they are football shaped.
2. Carefully remove the yolk from each half. Then crumble the yolks into a mixing bowl.
3. Add all of your favorite deviled egg ingredients. I used mayonnaise, mustard, pickle juice,Paprika, salt and pepper. We are huge pepper fans and plan on devouring these Game Day Deviled Eggs after I snap these photos, so I personally went heavy on the pepper. Then stir until creamy.
4. Use a piping bag or use a baggie. Fill it with the egg filling. If you used a baggie, cut the corner off of the baggie to make a homemade piping bag.
5. Fill the eggs spreading the filling over most of the egg white, leaving about 1/8th of an inch border all around the egg.
6. Take your eggs and dip them into the bacon bits.
7. This will make the eggs look like brown footballs.
8. Use your mayonnaise to draw football laces onto your Game Day Deviled Eggs. TIP! Using the smallest tip on a piping bag works wonders!!! You can also use a baggie. Just snip the tinniest tip off of the corner.
9. Serve & Enjoy!
We are officially less than a month away from Valentine’s Day!!!! Even though the holiday itself is sort of a joke to me, I can’t get enough of the pink, red and hearts everything!!! Such a girly holiday that I literally celebrate Valentine’s Day for that fact alone.
One of my favorite Valentine’s Day themed desserts just happens to be this strawberry dip. Funny because I’m usually not a fan of real strawberry flavor. When it comes to both strawberry & watermelon, I prefer the jolly rancher fake taste over the all natural. So it’s strange that I find myself dunking strawberry’s into a strawberry dip and actually enjoying it! Maybe my adult taste buds are finally coming in? Who knows! All I do know is you should make this Valentine’s Strawberry Dip because it is beyond delicious. Enjoy!
• 1 Box Strawberry Pudding Mix (Walmart in the Jello/Pudding section)
• 1 Tub Whipped Topping
• 1 Cup Milk
• Your Favorite Treats For Dipping
Pour your Whipped Topping into a large bowl. You will want to use the entire container! Then pour your package of Strawberry Pudding Mix into your bowl.
2. Pour 1 cup of milk into the large bowl. This will eventually thin out the dip!
3. Mix Well
4. Pour your Strawberry Dip into a serving bowl.Spread out all your favorite dunkable treats.
6. Serve & Enjoy!

Ahhhhh hello January 2019!!!!! That time of year your social feeds are filled with “New Year, New Me” posts!!! I totally agree that the beginning of the year is a fabulous time to make a fresh start. I just love the idea of having a clean slate and checking out all the kick butt ways my fellow boss babes plan to tackle the new year!!!! Such an inspirational time scroll the internet!
If you have been following my crazy adventures here on The Trophy WifeStyle for awhile, you know diets are not my thing!! Diets have too many restrictions. Anything in life where you make a long list of no-no’s, usually ends up leading to rebellion and eventually failure. I love food & know from experience that the best way to kick those weightloss and health goals is to make simple lifestyle changes not take your favorite foods away.
Back in June, 2018, I went on a quest to lose the extra fluff that snuck up on me. I was heading back to Orlando to visit my old hometown and chill with my besties. I wanted to look fab & the fact that my clothes were feeling snug had me feeling everything but! By making two simple lifestyle swaps, I managed to lose that fluff in no time AND lost a few extra lbs!! I came back from that trip with such a self esteem boost due to complements galore!!!!
Since I had such great success & my body is looking better than ever, I decided to kick things up a notch in 2019 by make one more simple lifestyle swap! Keep on reading to find out my 3 Swaps For A Healthier New Year!
Lifestyle Swap 1
“Enjoy responsibly” ~ It’s no secret that I love my drinks!!!! Once the weekend hits and I clock out for the week, my favorite way to celebrate my weekly wins is to kick back with a cold one in my hand!!! Unfortunately, not paying attention to what you drink can derail all of that hard work you put into your health and fitness goals all week!! Those empty calories unfortunately add up and leave you back at square one once Monday hits.
By taking one peak at my Instagram, you already know what my first lifestyle swap happened to be! All those glasses of wine morphed into bottles of Michelob ULTRA & recently Michelob ULTRA Pure Gold! With only 2.5 carbs and 85 calories, Pure Gold is triple filtered and brewed free of artificial colors and flavors!!! It was an obvious lifestyle swap must & it worked! It worked so well that I have actually converted many to the Michelob ULTRA family!!! My friends and family couldn’t get over the fact that I was looking fab, still heading to Walmart to do my weekly grocery shopping AND had a case of beer in my cart! The best part of all?? Michelob ULTRA Pure Gold is a light lager with a superior golden taste!! I didn’t give up great taste for a lighter drink option!
Lifestyle Swap 2
I cut out soda and joined the tea team! It was one of the biggest lifestyle swaps I ever made. I like my tea on the sweet side & sugar equaled calories. I often found myself questioning the lifestyle swap. I know soda is awful for you, but I felt like I was still drinking my daily calories. Was soda really that bad since I was drinking the same amount of calories?
Then I discovered Splenda Naturals which can be purchased at your local Walmart!! I was able to experience the joy of sugar in my daily cup of tea without all the calories! Honestly, using Splenda Naturals only enhanced the flavor!
Never heard of Splenda Naturals?!? Splenda Naturals Stevia is a great tasting 100% natural stevia product!!
• 100% Natural
• Great Tasting – Best Tasting Stevia
• No Aftertaste
• Zero Calories
A healthier lifestyle has never tasted so sweet. Love the fact I was able to cut my calories with this simple Lifestyle Swap!!!
Lifestyle Swap 3
I had great success with my first two lifestyle swaps, that I decided to kick it up a notch in 2019! This time I was all about finding natural lifestyle swaps for energy!!! Being a work at home mama with an empire to build, I need all the energy I can get!!! So when I discovered Optimum Nutrition and their variety of delicious products at Walmart, I knew these swaps could easily be a reality!!!
Amino Energy was the one product I was stoked to try!!! Being a creative person, I feel like I get my best ideas late at night, which makes for sleepy mornings. Zero time to nap when that empire needs built, so I love that I can use Amino Energy as a pick me up- any time of day!! Caffeine from natural sources for energy and focus support!!! I also loved the fact that this product didn’t require mixing into a milk related product. I have a weird milk phobia, so I loved how this is an easy to mix powder with refreshing fruit flavors that you simply mix into COLD WATER and enjoy! That’s right, water!!! Plus, each serving is only 5 calories with 0 grams of sugar!!! WooHoo!!!
We all know that gyms are not my thing. Too people-y and everyone wants to chat. I’m a girl filled with social anxiety, so mall walking solo is more my thing! To put my mall walking workouts into high gear in 2019, I figured trying two new sources of protein would be ideal!!! I’m already doing the walking, mind as well get as much out of it as possible and I’m told adding protein is the way to do it!
I was instantly drawn to Gold Standard Whey! 24g of protein- whey protein isolate is the primary source- so much of the carbs and fat are isolated out or removed!!! Plus, just like Amino Energy, Gold Standard Whey is delicious and you can mix with cold water or your favorite beverage!! Another water win for us shake haters!!!! And at only 120 calories, 1.5g Fat (or less), 2g Sugar (or less), this Gluten Free option is not only a win for me, but a win for all!!!
Not thirsty? Protein Crisp are a delicious source of protein to snack on! These unique, high protein bars have a delicious, crispy texture & provides 20g of protein per bar!

Mermaids!!!!!!! So I was at the mall the other day with Haylie and Bath & Body Works was filled with all of their new Spring Break Scents! It may only be January, but apparently it’s Spring Break at the mall and the store was filled with beach scents lol... If only that were reality and it wasn’t a winter wonderland once we stepped out of the mall! I wish I was walking out to a beach instead of snow.
After spending way too much time in Bath & Body Works and being all depressed that it was still indeed winter outside, we decided to go home and make Mermaid Cupcakes. We lathered up in one of the beach scented lotions we scooped up & baked away!!!! It may be snowing outside, but we could at least pretend our home was a beach house for a few hours!!!!
- 6 Prepared Strawberry Cupcakes
- Blue Frosting
- Pink, Purple, and White Chocolate Candy Melts
- Edible Shimmer Bead Sprinkles
- Silicone Mermaid Tail Mold
1. Melt Chocolate according to package directions. Once melted, place each chocolate in a sandwich size baggie and snip a very small hold in one corner.
2. Squeeze the chocolates in the mold. You can swirl the chocolates or do solid colors.
3. Let set for 10-15 minutes or until harden then carefully pop out of mold.
4. Frost cupcakes, you can use a piping bag and tip or just frost with a knife.
5. Sprinkle with the shimmer beads and add a chocolate tail.
These Valentine M&M Bars have become an absolute favorite in our house. I make a new version every season since M&M comes out with a new holiday bag!!! Since I spotted Valentine’s M&M’s on the shelves last week, I figured I would make my famous M&M Bars for the family!!!
These Valentine M&M cookie bars are so easy to make and they bake up so nicely. They are a gorgeous golden brown color and the texture of the chocolate chips with the crunchy M&M’s is just delicious! These Valentine’s M&M Bars are perfect for a crowd or a party. They can be cut smaller to serve more, or cut larger for for a pretty presentation! Enjoy!
• Box yellow cake mix
• 1 Box instant vanilla pudding
• 1/4 Cup water
• 3/4 Cup vegetable oil
• 2 Eggs
• 1 Cup chocolate chips.
• 1 Cup M&M’s
2. Mix well!
3. Add your chocolate chips and m&m’s! Then mix!
4. Pour the batter (it’s going to be thick) into a greased 9×13 pan or use a silicone baking dish as I did!!! Silicone works wonders when it comes time to remove the bars from the baking dish!!!
5. Bake your bars for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and let them cool. Then cut into squares.
6. Serve & enjoy!
