Sunset Farm Sausage!

Sunset Farm has a long history of making delicious sausages and other meat products. Available for purchase on the Sunset Farm website you can find smoked sausage, Polish sausage, beef sausage, boneless ham in a variety of sizes, chub and loaf sausages, breakfast sausage, chicken sausage, smoked ham and bacon, and much more! They even carry all natural products that include Bell Pepper and Onion Sausage, Garlic Herb and Tomato Sausage, and JalapeƱo and Monterey Jack Sausage. Their products can also be purchased in variety packs. These all natural sausages contain no nitrates or additives. 

I am a huge fan of sausage! I use it in so many different types of recipes. I use it in my chili, lasagna, meatballs, Shepard's pie and goulash. If a recipe calls for a pound of beef I will usually use half a pound of beef and half a pound of sausage! I like the unique flavor that it can give a meal. I was pretty excited when Sunset Farm offered to send me some of their sausage products to review. I am always willing to try new foods from different brands, especially brands that have all natural products. This sausage did not disappoint! Both flavors I received had a nice snap to them, tasted fresh, and didn't taste like they had been loaded up with a lot of chemicals like some sausage products can. 

As a part of the review Sunset Farm asked if I would make some recipes showcasing their sausages. I first looked at their site to see what sort of recipes they had. I was immediately drawn to the Brunch Casserole.  This is the perfect breakfast for when you have friends or in-laws staying over.  Like I said, I found the recepie on the Sunset Farm website, but I did modify it a little bit. 

Here is what the original recipe calls for:
  • 2 pounds Sunset Farm Brand Smoked Sausage
  • 8 slices bread, trimmed and cubed
  • 3/4 pounds sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 1/4 cups milk
  • 3/4 tablespoon dry mustard
  • 1 (8 oz) can sliced mushrooms, drained
  • 1 (10 3/4 oz) can cream of mushroom soup
  • 1/2 soup can milk
  • 2 tablespoons butter
I used a package of Cracked Pepper Smoked Sausage, and the listed amounts of bread, cheese, eggs, milk, cream of mushroom soup, and butter. I think it came out just fine.

The original instructions are:
  • Fry sausage and cut into bite size pieces.
  • Arrange bread in greased 9 X 13 inch pan. Cover with cheese.
  • Beat eggs with milk and mustard.
  • Add mushrooms. Pour over top.
  • Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  • Let stand at room temperature for 1 hour.
  • Dilute soup with milk and pour over top. Dot with butter.
  • Bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour.
I was on a time budget, so I did not leave the mixture to sit over night. Instead I let sit in the fridge for about two hours, then let sit out at room temperature for one hour. I put some butter on top of it right before I threw it in the oven. I baked it at the directed degrees for one hour.  I absolutely loved this. I have never had anything like it before. 


I like how versatile their sausages are. You can use them for any meal, breakfast lunch or dinner!.

The next meal I made was a quick and easy Sausage Alfredo!  I like to find better alternatives to add to recopies that I already make. I found the Alfredo Sauce recipe here: http://allrecipes.com/recipe/alfredo-sauce-2/ a long time ago, and it is what I have been using every since. It is incredibly easy to make. 

The ingredients include:

1/4 cup butter

1 cup heavy cream

1 clove garlic, crushed

1 1/2 cups freshly grated Parmesan cheese

1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

The directions are simple:
Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium low heat. Add cream and simmer for 5 minutes, then add garlic and cheese and whisk quickly, heating through. Stir in parsley and serve.


When I was just about finished making the Alfred Sauce I warmed up some of the sausages, cut them into bite size pieces, and made some spaghetti according to the directions on the box. This meal was super quick and easy to make. 


Sunset Farm sausages can be purchased online on their website, and various in store locations around Georgia. If you are interested in purchasing Sunset Farm products but are unsure of where you can find then in store feel free to shoot them an email at webinfo@sunsetfarmfoods.com

Montagne Jeunesse Clay Spa Masks

“Prepare Your Skin For A Truly Incredible, Fresh Pulped And Juiced, Deep Cleansing Journey With Pulped Pomegranate Red Earth Clay Spa Mask By Montagne Jeunesse.”
I got this Montagne Jeunesse Clay Spas: Red Earth Clay Spa mask free from Influenster along with a bunch of other free goodies! I love how this clay mask smells! The product consists of a piece of cloth with holes for your eyes, mouth, and nose. The fabric is saturated in the clay formula. I found that it was easy to apply, I don’t think it was very messy compared to regular masks that I have used. I like that it smells very fruity. It left my skin feeling great. These masks cost $2.49 a piece and can be purchased at Ulta and Walmart, along with many other online retailers! I do think I will be buying more of these!

Out of the Box: Snake Oil Board Game!




A few months ago I received Snake Oil in exchange for an honest review, and it easily became one of my new favorite games! It was super easy to play. An unopened box comes with 324 word cards and 36 two sided customer cards (totaling 72 customers). The instructions are written on the side of the box in an effort to be more eco-friendly. To play, deal out 6 “word” cards to each player. One player draws a “customer card”. The player assumes this role while the other players choose two of their word cards to create a product. They have to pitch their product to the customer in a way that would make the customer choose their card. The winner of each round is the person whose product was chosen by the customer. The winner obtains the customer card. After each round has ended a new one begins, until each player has been a customer. The winner is the person with the most won customer cards after each person has been a customer.

The box has an example of gameplay: One player draws the “Caveman”. The other players create a product with two of their cards and explain why this product would be good for the caveman. One player combined the cards “snow” and Machine” creating a Snow Machine. This machine throws snow over 20 feet into your neighbor’s cave! Another player came up with a Beard Brush; this product would help a Caveman get tangles out of their beards! Anther product would keep the Caveman warm, the Animal Blanket, would sure be handy on cold nights! After everyone in the group has pitched their product to the customer, the customer chooses what product would be best for them! The winner of that round gets the caveman customer card and the next round begins and another person draws a customer card. The word cards that were used during that round can be discarded to the side and each player draws 2 new cards to replace those. Keep 6 cards in your hand each round.

These green and blue cards are the Customer Cards.
 These purple cards are the Word Cards.


Snake Oil was a super fun game! I brought this on trip I went on with some friends, and everyone absolutely loved it. The box says it’s for ages 10+ . My friends and I that played range from 22-26 and had a blast playing it. My boyfriend actually said “I don’t think I have laughed that hard in a long time, I needed that.” My boyfriend really isn’t a fan of games, so this is huge! I really like that it doesn't come with any extra piece of paper, and that the instructions are written right on the box. This keeps paper out of landfills! I also really like that this game can be played with people of any age! It's a game you can play with adults, children, or both! You can really get everyone in on the fun!


I know that sometimes game instructions can be kind of vague, so here is a video that Out of the Box has on their website! This video explains how to play the game!
