Rollie Eggmaster- My New Favorite Kitchen Accessory! + Rollie Breakfast Burrito Recipe

Rollie Eggmaster

Have you ever used a product and realized that you never knew that you really needed it, but now you don’t want to live without it? Well meet the Rollie Eggmaster! I never quite knew i needed it, but just after 1 use, I realized the possibilities!

As a family of 5, we are on the go all the time! We have soccer games, fast-pitch practice, PTC meetings, doctor appointments, birthday parties, etc- you get the idea! With that comes many times that the kiddos are hungry and we just don’t have the time to make dinner! So then we have to stop and grab food and eat on the way which causes us to spend a lot of money! Finding ways that we can either cook items quickly and take with us or even a way for our kiddos to make something themselves without burning down the house, is always on our minds! With this Rollie Eggmaster our oldest daughters can crack a couple eggs before school, brush her teeth, grab her backpack and put her rolled egg on a stick and eat on the way to school! This week we have used it every day, they think it is so cool!

I first tried just the basic use which is to make a Rollie Egg! It is simple to use, spray your Rollie with cooking spray!

Crack an egg.

Let it cook for 5-7 minutes. It will pop up ready to serve!

Rollie Eggmaster 2

It came out just like it said it would! Slide right out and was very yummy!

Vertical Cooking Technology that combines a cylindrical non-stick cooking surface surrounded by a revolutionary heating element, Unique silicone grip,  Clean-up is a breeze!

Clean-up is super easy! They send you a cleaning brush- with a little water and dab of dish soap, you are done cleaning your Rollie Eggmaster in just a few minutes!

We have tried several other recipes and my favorite by far is the Rollie Breakfast Burrito!

Ingredients:

  • 1 Tortilla or Wrap
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 chopped piece of sausage
  • 1 tablespoon of shredded cheese

Instructions:

  • Spray the Rollie with cooking spray in the chamber
  • mix all ingredients together
  • cut tortilla into 4×6 inches and roll the tortilla into a tube shape and insert into the cooking chamber
  • pour the mixed ingredients into the cooking changer, do not fill to the top, leave about 1 inch from top
  • cook for about 8 minutes- flip for a crispier finish for about 2 additional minutes

Your Rollie Eggmaster includes:

• Rollie™ EggMaster

• 5 Skewers

• 1 Cleaning Brush

• 1 Packing Tool

• Recipe Guide

• 1 year limited warranty

Belly Fat Diet for Dummies + Berry Smoothie Recipe

Belly Fat Diet For Dummies (1118345851) cover image

One of our goals this year, not only for myself, but for my family as well is to eat better and for my hubby and I to drop a few pounds! One spot that my hubby and I both have problems with is belly fat! It never seems to go away and just looking at food, I seem to gain 2 more pounds around my waist!

Belly Fat Diet for Dummies is the latest book from the For Dummies collection giving you a complete layout and easy to follow process to loosing that belly fat!

  • Identify what type of belly fat you have and see how it effects your health
  • Safely loose the belly fat with tips and nutrition
  • Try belly slimming foods and fat burning exercises to slim your waist
  • Get immediate results with this proven program

My hubby was my guinea pig on this one, since he feels that he has the least amount of time to work out and slim his belly! After just one week he did notice a difference in his waist line! He started out slow and follow their step by step basic exercises like Basic Planks, Arm Circles, Swingin Abs, Chair Leg Raises, Laying Leg Raises Oblique Planks- which he thought was great since he could do them at home with out the need of a expensive gym! I am sticking to this routine, since I don’t seem to like exercise as much as the hubby! Although these moves are simple enough for me to do throughout the day, between chores, driving the kiddos back and forth to school and running errands, which I love!

Once you have mastered the basics, you can head right on into the Super Belly Blasters which can help you drop belly fat pretty quickly. I am still working my way up to these, but the hubby had no problem! There is a Week by Week Workout schedule to help you keep on track with what you should be accomplishing each day during your Belly Fat workout! Even though exercise is key to helping you burn the belly fat, you need to incorporate better and healthier foods into your diet to keep that belly fat in check!

Knowing what you are eating and what is in your food is going to help you learn quickly what is good for you and what is not! Chapter 11 has a whole section dedicated to decoding food labels and nutritional claims on packaging! There are many things that I did not know, that there is a difference in the meaning of low calorie, light calories, low fat and light fat! I guess I had just always assumed that they all pretty much meant the same thing, but there is a break down of what each claim means!

Here is one of my favorite recipes from the book- Berry Smoothies! This was great to be able to make ahead of time and take with me on the go!

Belly Blasting Berry Smoothie Recipe- 1 serving

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of fat free plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup frozen organic berries (blueberries, strawberries, etc)
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon of chia seeds

Directions:

  • In blender combine all ingredients until desired consistency
