Sweet Potato Black Bean Tacos

A delicious vegetarian meal perfect for meat free Monday. I received a package of Sweet Potatoasts to review. Sweet potatos are one of my favorite foods so this was a perfect food for me to try out.  The Sweet Potatoasts are simply frozen sweet potatos that you simply cook in the oven. There are tons of great ideas on Pinterest for meal ideas to pair with the Sweet Potatoasts.

Check out my dinner board here! 

I choose to make sweet potato black bean tacos with mine based on pinterest inspiration. 

The potatoasts are easy and just need to be cook in the oven. While they are cooking I cook the black beans and prepare the toppings.

I really like meals like his since everyone can customize their meal to how they want and that is a win win for everyone.

Book Review: The Wife Between Us by Greer Hendricks

The Wife Between Us The Wife Between Us by Greer Hendricks
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Plot: A scorned ex-wife seeks to ruin her ex-husbands wedding to his new wife.  Is the ex-wife just biter and jealous or is there more hiding beneath the surface to her compulsive behavior.

My Review: This is the second book I read from Greer and Hendricks. Usually when I read a book I really enjoy I like to read another from the same author. I found this at the library and decided to give it a read. It's really hard to describe the plot and what I liked since there are so many twists and turns I do not want to give away any surprises or details. There were quite a few times where I was shocked at what the reality was since I was expecting something completely different. The main character Vanessa is who the story centers around. There were many times in the story I went from liking her to disliking her and in between. That seemed to happen with a couple other characters as well. This shows how many different twists there are in the story.I really like that I had no idea how this story was going to turn out. In the beginning I was thinking it was going a completely different direction so I was very pleased with the surprise ending.

Winter Lip Care with Lypsyl


With winter approaching my lips really need some extra care. I go through lippies and lip balms like crazy so I am always looking to buy more and I like to have a nice little stockpile to choose from. I use different lipbalms depending on my current needs and since its winter I really need a good lip balm. I got an opportunity to try out an old favorite again! Lypsyl provides my lips with intense protection that keeps them moisturized and smooth. My lips are looking and feeling so amazing thanks to Lypsyl.  With amazing ingredients like coconut oil, organic shea butter, and vitamins A and E I know my lips are getting the best they deserve. Lypsyl has a refreshing minty flavor and I love the cute bee slider on the packaging! It is very easy to see why Lypsyl is Sweden's #1 best selling lip balm.  You can easily find Lypsyl @walmart and @MeijerStores  #gotitfree #lypsyllipcare

Skincare Try: Vela Contour Chin and Neck Mask

 *Moms With Extra Cents sometimes uses referral links and affiliate links which will earn a small commission or credit if clicked. Please read full disclosure.

Masks are probably my favorite skincare product 🙌 I try to find unique masks to mix up my routine. I tried out the Vela Contour Revital Chin Mask and Cream. I was sent a free refill pack of masks and a free tube of the after mask neck cream. I like that it is a two step process and it is very effective. I was impressed with the results of using my first mask and cream combo. The mask is made to tone,tighten, and shape the chin and neck area. You leave the mask on for 45 minutes and then apply the cream after. The mask had a little trouble staying on so make sure you lay down when using this or have something to hold the mask up.  The cream has a great texture and I really like how well it applied and absorbed. The combo is fabulous and works so well together. You can use the system every three days. Have you used a neck mask before? The one I used is available ➡️

Coffee Swap: Apple and Ginger Fresh Juice

I have been on a bit of a health kick lately. I have been under some stress which caused some weight loss and kind of reset my eating habits so I look at it as a kick start to getting back into shape and healthier eating habits. I bought a juicer a long time ago and sadly don't use it as much as I should. I am committing myself to using it more though! I am a pretty big coffee drinker but I have cut coffee out to limit my caffeine usage. I wake up pretty early and my day is hectic at the start. I miss my coffee and needed something to replace it. I found this apple ginger recipe and figured I would try it out.  You can customize it to for however you want. I use two apples and cut them into pieces since its easier to juice smaller sized fruit. I then cut a chunk of ginger and peel that. You can add more or less ginger. The ginger adds a really nice kick so I add more on days I really want that extra kick. It's working out really well for helping me transition off coffee and its super healthy.
