UPDATE: WITH OUR FREE COUPON FROM BZZAGENT, MY FAMILY PURCHASED THE BEEF BARBACOA. IT WAS SUPER EASY TO PREPARE AND CAME OUT SO MOIST AND TENDER. ALL THREE OF MY KIDS (AGES 3,6 AND 16) LOVED THE MEAT. WE PAIRED IT WITH GRILLED PEPPERS, SPICY CHEESE, SOUR CREAM AND RICE AND MADE SUPER YUMMY BURRITOS. I LIKE THAT PREP TIME ON THIS WAS 2-3 MINUTES AND THEN BRAISING FOR 2.5 HOURS. IT WAS SO SIMPLE AND WE WERE ABLE TO ENJOY FAMILY TIME OUTSIDE WHILE IT WAS COOKING ON THE STOVE. OVERALL, KROGER HAS HIT A HOMERUN WITH THIS LINE OF MEXICAN CUISINE AND WILL BE A FAMILY FAVORITE FOR MY FAMILY THIS SUMMER!

ACNE, YOU’RE CLEARED FOR TAKEOFF
Part of loving the skin you’re in is being conscious of what you put on it. Paula Begoun overcame her battle with acne by making sense of which ingredients truly helped or hurt her skin, and today, she’s the author of 20 best-selling books on the topic. Since deciding to use her decades of research to create the Paula’s Choice line in 1995, thousands have turned to her smarter skin care solutions when nothing else worked. For proof, check out the See What Everyone’s Saying tab below!
So, are you ready to make every day a good skin day? The Paula’s Choice CLEAR Acne Kitincludes everything you need to treat acne and send clogged pores, breakouts and redness packing.
The Paula’s Choice CLEAR Collection uses a breakthrough formulation to penetrate deep inside the pore, where acne starts. The products are amazingly effective not only because of the proven ingredients they do contain, but also because of what they DON’T contain. Unlike other treatments, there’s no alcohol, preservatives or added fragrances that can irritate your skin and make acne worse. It takes time and dedication to come up with these non-irritating formulas, which is why so many other companies don’t do it.
The Paula’s Choice CLEAR Acne Kit includes a Pore Normalizing Cleanser, an Anti-Redness Exfoliating Solution with 2% Salicylic Acid* and a Daily Skin Clearing Treatment.
*Please Note: Those allergic to aspirin should not use products containing salicylic acid.
WHAT’S IN MY BZZKIT?
Put your best face forward with a Paula Begoun-approved BzzKit, including:
• Five FREE Paula’s Choice CLEAR 2-Week Trial Kits (a few for you, and a few to share)
• A 20 Beauty Myths Busted Mini-Book
• A Paula’s Choice product catalog
• Coupons to pass along to family and friends who suffer from acne breakouts or have a teenager who does
Just a heads up: Paula’s Choice recently updated the CLEAR packaging, so you may receive product that looks slightly different than what’s featured on PaulasChoice.com. Don’t worry — you’re all receiving the same product with the same effective, non-irritating ingredients.

UPDATE: I WAS A LITTLE SKEPTICAL ABOUT SUBSTITUTING VANILLA GREEK YOGURT FOR BUTTER IN A VANILLA CAKE MIX I HAD, BUT I READ ONLINE THAT IT WAS A YUMMY SWAP SO I DECIDED TO TRY IT OUT. IT WAS JUST AS CREAMY AS USING BUTTER, BUT GAVE IT A SMOOTHER VANILLA CREAM TASTE. IT WAS SUPER YUMMY AND THE BEST PART WAS THAT I KNEW IT WAS HEALTHIER FOR ME THAN USING ACTUAL BUTTER. I CAN’T WAIT TO TRY THIS IN OTHER RECIPES FOR A HEALTHY TWIST. THANKS CHOBANI, KROGER AND BZZAGENT! I NEVER WOULD HAVE TRIED THIS WITHOUT A FREE SAMPLE.
SINGLE SERVINGS ARE JUST THE BEGINNING
Michelangelo made some pretty amazing pencil sketches, but if he’d stopped there, we wouldn’t have the Sistine Chapel (amongst other things). And while Chobani® Greek Yogurt, made with only natural ingredients, makes for a wholesome and delicious treat, that’s only the beginning of how it can contribute to your creative kitchen adventures (or shall we say, “masterpieces”).
