Who would know the best approach to maximum dental health and hygiene then someone who devotes their career to making smiles brighter, right?!?! He is so confident that you will love the benefits of the Mouthwatchers toothbrush that he backs the product by a 100% satisfaction guarantee! So go ahead, give it a try!

Antimicrobial Bristles for Better Health

The bristles of Mouthwatchers toothbrushes are infused with silver to naturally eliminate 99.9% bacteria. This helps inhibit bacteria growth on the bristles in between uses, so that your toothbrush is clean and ready for the next use. I don’t know about you, but I find it comforting to know that I am not introducing bacteria back into my mouth on my toothbrush. Score!

Flossing Bristles for a Better Clean

Dr. Plotka’s Mouthwatchers toothbrushes have dual layered bristles. The thinner out bristles help gently brush away plaque and food particles that other brushes miss. The coarser, inner bristles ensure a deeper clean of teeth and gums. Not to mention, the polyester bristles will outlast the traditional nylon bristles of other toothbrushes.

Besides, with Dr. Plotka’s product guarantee, what do you have to lose, right?!?!? Aside from the adult Mouthwatchers toothbrush, Youth, Powered and Travel versions are also available. Something for everyone. I love the amazing clean feeling I get from Mouthwatchers. Thank you Dr. Plotka!

Hey all! I am sure you have seen either TV or online ads for the FabFitFun home delivery system. I must admit that I am all-in when it comes to trying new things that come to my door, that contain products that I would actually use, and that are offered at awesome prices. When I saw the FabFitFun ad online, I just HAD to give it a whirl to see what the hype was all about. Here is my review of the most recent box — the Winter Box 2017.

So, What is FabFitFun, Anyway?

First, a little overview on what FabFitFun actually is. This home delivery program comes as a paid subscription, which can be annually or seasonally. I opted for the annual membership, which gets four boxes per year on your doorstep (Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter). A seasonal membership is just that, one box depending on what season you choose. Of course, as with most subscriptions, there is a savings/discount when you enroll in the annual versus seasonal memberships.

Furthermore, the delivery boxes contain full-size premium beauty and fashion products. I must admit, I have found the amount of product delivered to be generous! You also have the opportunity to customize your shipments to products that are geared toward your personal interests and style. This customization is all done through a personal website portal that you can log in and update anytime you want.

So, What Did I Get in My Winter 2017 FabFitFun Box?

I must admit, each time I get one of these boxes delivered to my door, I feel like a kid on Christmas morning! The anticipation of opening the box to see what goodies are inside is awesome, for lack of a better word 😉 I was pleasantly surprised with my 2017 Winter Box selections, as they are items that I would actually use. Here is what I received in FULL SIZE product (with my own thoughts and categories for each):

Ok, So What IS the Hype of FabFitFun?

I personally enjoy receiving my FabFitFun boxes each season, and based on the products that I receive can see the value in the subscription membership. I have received a few items in previous boxes here and there that I didn’t absolutely LOVE, but I re-gifted to those that I knew would. Overall, I find that FabFitFun truly delivers! They deliver premium products and have a great “sense” of what fits my personal style. Here’s to my next box, arriving Spring 2018!

Easy NuWave Air Fryer Cheesecake Pockets

I LOVE cheesecake! However, I have to admit that I am a bit intimidated by the time it takes to prepare your “conventional” cheesecake. I have also yet to figure out how to use those fancy cheesecake pans that look good in theory, but for me I am clueless with those pans. So, what a better alternative to cheesecake than a recipe that is SUPER easy, and SUPER fast!?!? Not to mention, I get to use my favorite kitchen “appliance” to make them — my NuWave  Brio Air Fryer!

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read our disclosure policy for more information.

I am sure this recipe will work in other air fryer brands, but after trying a competitor, I am a 100% hands down fan of the NuWave Brio version. Ready to start enjoying these scrumptious cheesecake pockets? Well, here is what you will need and step-by-step instructions for preparing them. Have fun and Happy non-Frying!

NuWave Brio Air Fryer 6 Quart

Ingredients/Items Needed for Easy NuWave Air Fryer Cheesecake Pockets

  • (1) Container 24 ounce Philadelphia Ready To Eat Cheesecake Filling
  • (1) Package (approx. 20 tortillas) Small Flour Tortillas — any brand, just be sure flour and not corn
  • 1/2 cup Cinnamon/Sugar for Topping
  • 1/4 cup melted Butter or Margarine — I prefer the taste of Margarine but either works fine
  • (1) NuWave Brio Air Fryer — or comparable, but after trying a leading competitor I find the NuWave Brio 6 qt. to be my favorite and offers more options

Preparing the Easy NuWave Air Fryer Cheesecake Pockets

  1. Preheat your NuWave Bio Air Fryer to 400 degrees.
  2. Warm your tortillas in the package for 30 seconds in the microwave. In all honesty, this makes the tortillas easy to fold and bend when wrapping your pockets.
  3. Lay one tortilla out on a flat surface and scoop about 2 tbsp of Cheesecake Filling in to the center of the tortillas.

  4. Fold the tortilla sides inward so that you are forming an envelope/pocket. First, by folding the left and right sides in, and then following by folding top and bottom in to overlap.
  5. Lay your folded pocket fold-side down in your Air Fryer basket. This will serve to keep your pockets together during the “frying” process (I find that I can fit 6 pockets comfortably in the basket in my 6 quart NuWave Brio).
  6. Fry at 400 degrees for 5 minutes. Once fried, carefully remove the pockets with kitchen tongs and place on a plate.
  7. Brush your fried cheesecake pockets with melted butter and sprinkle/turn in your cinnamon/sugar mixture.

Finally, it is time to ENJOY your yummy cheesecake pockets (makes approx. 20 pockets)! These are great served warmed or chilled and even BETTER with a scoop of ice cream and your favorite chocolate or caramel sauce!

Aside from these cheesecake pockets being so easy to make and really tasty, one of the best parts is that the clean-up is even easier! Furthermore, the basket insert for the NuWave is dishwasher safe, and the bottom tray easily wipes clean and is ready for the next use (which I am not exaggerating when I say that is practically every day in my house).

Want to get a NuWave Brio Air Fryer for yourself or for someone who you know would love the healthy alternative to fried food? Click HERE for the 6-quart version (which is what I have, and it works perfectly for my larger family size of 7). On the contrary, if a smaller version is what you prefer, try the 3-quart version HERE.

Stay tuned for more delicious and easy air fryer recipes. Another great recipe that gives all the flavor punch without the mess is my “Easy to Make Caramel Apple Slices.” Be sure to check it out!
