Aidells Hawaiian Teriyaki Meatballs

(This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Tyson. The opinions and text are all mine.)

Not many people may know this about me but I am part Asian. My mother is full Japanese and I actually lived in Japan for about 10 years. I even spoke it fluently at one point. But it has been many, many years since I have been back and I sometimes miss eating the food there.

Every once in a while I will get in the kitchen and whip up something with a bit of Asian flair to it. Today it was Hawaiian Teriyaki Meatballs. It was a super busy day for me in our homeschool and working online so I wanted something easy to work with. I am glad this recipe was so simple to make!

I was already at Meijer buying some gifts for Little Isabella's birthday that is this weekend so I decided to pick up some Aidells®) Teriyaki & Pineapple All Natural Chicken Meatballs. I had already tried the Aidells links and liked them so I decided to give these a whirl.

What I really like about these are that they:

are gluten-free
do not contain nitrites
dp not contain any added hormones

I thought you would like to know that since I know that many of you are trying to be more health conscious these days.

And in case you didn't know and wanted to try them, right now Meijer is having a special mPerks Aidells offer of $1/1 on the mPerks coupon portal running from 5/1 through 5/28. They were also in stores on May 1 sharing in-store demonstrations.

These are the simple ingredients I used for dinner:

Hawaiian Teriyaki Meatballs Recipe

- 1/2 onion sliced
- Adeills All Natural Chicken Teriyaki and Pineapple Meatballs
- 1/2 of green, orange, yellow and red peppers sliced
- 1 large jar teriyaki sauce
- 1 bag raw cashews
-1 bag brown rice
- coconut oil (not pictured)


1. Fry up sliced up peppers and onions in coconut oil like pictured above.  Then add pineapples and cashews and heat through.

2. Add meatballs and teriyaki sauce and heat up for 8-12 minutes. They are fully cooked so they are super quick!

3. Cook brown rice according to package.

3. Spoon meatball mixture over brown rice when done and serve hot.

My kids couldn't wait to dig in and when they did they exclaimed, "Mmmmm, this is SOOOO good!". I am so glad this dish is a crowd-pleaser because everyone knows that it can be tough to please everyone in a large family of eleven and this one sure delivers!

I loved how simple it was to make them and the great taste and real, handpicked ingredients that tasted bold and unique were definitely a plus.

Hospitality tip - These would be great to keep in the slow cooker when guests come over as they don't require much fuss or time and children enjoy them too.

I hope you enjoy this recipe!

*I was recently asked by Aidells® to create share some tips using their new product and I hope it was a blessing to you! This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Tyson. The opinions and text are all mine.

Wholesome Christian Entertainment for the Family --10,000 Unlimited Streaming Videos!

If your family is anything like my family, you are always looking for wholesome entertainment for your children. It can be SO hard to find it in a world of Netflix and Redbox, but don't get discouraged! You are definitely going to want to hear what I have to say today!

There is this really cute website called Molly Green where they offer these wonderful magazines that include:

  • Homesteading
  • Homekeeping
  • Homeschooling
  • Home Industry

Which I think are great but the magazines are not even what I wanted to share today. I wanted to share what else they offer that many people don't know about. I have been going through my Ultimate Homemaking Bundle and since Molly Green is one of the free bonus offers it also came with access to 10,000 unlimited streaming videos! Wow, I had no idea!

Here is a quick description of what is available:

Molly Green’s RightNow Media Library is for members only and is a gateway to more than 10,000 video resources for you and your family.

 The streaming video library includes films for all ages from:

-Adventures in Odyssey
-3-2-1 Penguins
-What’s In the Bible
-Boz the Bear 
-Chuck Swindoll’s Paws & Tales Series for kids 
-and more!


-Bible studies by Francis Chan, John MacArthur, Dave Ramsey, and John Maxwell (and more) for adults!

It also includes academic and homesteading content which is exclusive to Molly Green members like how-to videos covering the four pillars of HOMEsteading, HOMEkeeping, HOMEschooling and HOMEindustry. 

This is an UNLIMITED streaming video site, meaning there is no limit to the number of videos you can enjoy or length of time to view them. Most videos are available worldwide (a very small number have geographic restrictions). Kind of like a Christian Netflix!I

I have been looking at the videos this morning and I am pretty impressed and can't wait to share them with my family--there is SOOOOO much to enjoy.

You can find this at Molly Green but if you are looking for a great deal you can get The Ultimate Homemaking Bundle and get one year of FREE access with a special code as one of their bonus offers--what an incredible value. Don't miss it because it is only for a limited time and ends on Monday!

You can find it HERE.

I hope your family is blessed by it!

When You Need Help Organizing Your Home: 31 Days to a Clutter Free Life

Here at A Wise Woman Builds Her Home we often talk about building a strong marriage and family life---this topic is our passion! But something that can be just as important to the health of those things I mentioned can be a home that is well ordered.

 If you are a mom you know that when items are lost and rooms are messy that things can get out of hand and lead to stress in your personal life as well as affecting those around you. They can even affect your relationships with those very people that you love the most. How many of you have gotten into an argument with a loved one over messiness?

Is Your STUFF Controlling Your Life?

Most of us know all too well how stressful it can be to have a home packed to the gills, with an overbooked schedule to match.  But what if we had a plan to rid our lives--and our homes--of clutter, one small step at a time?

Today I would like to share a book that I think will help and inspire you:

31 Days to a Clutter Free Life is not a book to be read cover to cover--instead it is a set of 31 daily challenges, based on the wildly popular month-long challenge originally hosted at, that will empower and inspire you to clear your life, one day at a time, of the clutter that is filling up your home, mind, and schedule.  It's not meant to make you simply think about decluttering, it is a set of checklists that will help you ACT.

Over the course of this one-month challenge, you will:

  • Eliminate clutter in all areas of your home and instead create functional spaces for all of your family's many activities.
  • Replace chaotic counters and overstuffed cupboards with a calming kitchen that makes cooking a joy.
  • Overcome the destructive cycle of always needing more by paring down belongings to those you truly love.
  • Stop overcommitting and instead learn to say no without guilt.
  • Reduce stress in your home and family by clearing out the excess stuff that takes up so much of your time and energy.
  • Create practical and functional storage solutions for every room in your home.
  • Develop a working control center that keeps your entire family organized and on track.
  • Learn the four simple strategies to staying clutter free forever.
What if, one month from today, your life could be different?  

At any given time, most of us are stressed out with homes and schedules that feel chaotic and out of control.  It is easy to be overwhelmed with the vast quantities of stuff that comes pouring into our homes, from trinkets and paperwork to endless obligations and activities.  Wouldn't it be nice to finally have a step-by-step guide to ridding our life of clutter, and instead creating an oasis of calm and order?  

Simple Daily Assignments

Over the course of thirty-one simple but powerful daily challenges, this book will empower, enable, and inspire you to clear life of the clutter that is filling up you home, mind, and schedule.  Again, this is not a traditional book meant to be read straight through.  It is an action plan, a set of daily checklists that will require you to actively participate.

I hope you will check out this book and see if it is a good fit for you. I really liked many elements of the book---especially taking before and after pictures of your space. Since I am a visual person this one simple act can make such a difference!

Right now you can get Ruth's book over along with over 90 helpful homemaking resources at The Ultimate Homemaking Bundle 2016! You can easily build your homemaking library for just $29.97 of over $1000 worth of helpful items including eBooks, printables, planners, bonuses and eCourses (for a limited time only). I have been slowly combing through it all and really enjoying it so far--I am really looking forward to sharing some "new treasures" I have found the next few days. 


Friends, this is the LAST DAY for the Early Bird offer and it ends at midnight. Don't miss it! I am glad to see that several of you have already taken advantage of it. I hope you are enjoying your bundle!

Does being a mom and homemaker ever feel a little too hard?

There’s no question that you love your family like crazy and you’d do anything for them, but we all know it can be an exhausting job.

I bet you sometimes wish your home felt more put together and peaceful, you kept up with housework better, you were more consistent about serving healthy, homemade meals and you weren’t running ragged so much of the time.

Because these families of ours? They matter more than anything else. Our job is so important, and we really want to do it right.  But so often, us moms end up feeling discouraged and even like we’re failing.

Maybe you wonder how you can keep up with it all and still have the energy and intentionality to be the kind of mom, wife and woman you want to be.

Now, I know as well as you do that homemaking is never going to be stress-free (though it sure sounds nice). But what if you had more (and better) tools to help make it stress-less?
