In-My-Tub-Tuesday: The sweet success of B&E Soap & Scrub Co.’s Vanilla Oatmeal Brown Sugar Body Scrub

Scrub-a-dub-dub, therein lies the rub.

See, I have tried scrub upon scrub upon scrub and while I have found that a few are almost right (great scent or moisturizing or clean-rinsing), I have never found the perfect recipe…until now.

B&E Soap & Scrub Co.’s Vanilla Oatmeal Brown Sugar Body Scrub ($15/ 18-ounce tub)

A Perfect Recipe

This past weekend I took along this sweet little treat to a wedding in New Orleans where I was the maid of honor.

I needed to be soft, moisturized and, darn it, I wanted to glow! Is that too much for a girl to ask?

I tried  B&E Soap & Scrub Co.’s Vanilla Oatmeal Brown Sugar Body Scrub on the night before the rehearsal dinner and was downright giddy about the results! Like, took me awhile to sleep-giddy!
I was thoroughly exfoliated and left with baby soft, glowing, non-greasy, deeply moisturized skin!
The best part? I smelled like a homemade oatmeal molasses cookie and there was virtually no trace of sugar or grease in the tub.

It’s fat free sugar scrub! Yayayayayaya!

With the brown sugar, oatmeal, jojoba, sweet almond, olive oil and shea butter, my skin had no choice but to be gently, deeply and deliciously hydrated.

What a treat, indeed!

Quite honestly, it is the only scrub I have found that both men and woman will go gaga over. Really. I mean, you smell good, you’re soft and there’s no product remnant? Gaga, I tell you.

And while it might smell sinful, it doesn’t leave any inches on your hips. In fact, it’s a deliciously sweet treat that actually leaves you looking better!

Who can say no to that?

“Not I” said the fly.

I am so thankful to my good friend-neighbor, Matty, for introducing me to this delightful treat. Although, I might not be as grateful now that I’m seriously addicted.

But lucky for me, at only $15 per 18-ounce pop, I can indulge in the sweetness and softness almost nightly.

Foodette Friday: CeCe’s (BF’s Mom) Fruit Pizza

As many of you know, I was home in Dallas last week. Nothing announces summer like the town you grew up in. Am I right?

Mom CeCe making fruit pizza

So imagine my delight when I arrived home to find my brother’s and my (thanks to him) friends from college and my mom’s (CeCe, as we will refer to her here) fruit pizza at our pre-Memorial day weekend bbq. My mom is the maestro behind many of my favorite dessert symphonies but this one is the most kid-friendly, crowd-pleasing hit!

CeCe's (BF's Mom's) Fruit Pizza

Now, just so you know…Mom made THIS (see above) aaaand her Better Than Robert Redford Surprise dessert for our big bbq. And, let me tell you, they are both better than Robert Redford! And I loooooove some Robert Redford (both the man AND the dessert)!

Without further ado (because we know I can offer plenty of that), here is CeCe’s Fruit Pizza recipe.

CeCe’s Fruit Pizza

Preheat oven to 350.

Set out butter and cream cheese to reach room temperature.


1 roll sugar cookie dough (cut into 1/4 in slices and laid onto pizza or round pan)

1 block Cream Cheese

1 stick (1/2 c) Butter

1/2 to 1 cup powdered sugar

1 tsp Vanilla Extract

FRUIT!!! (Sliced strawberries, grapes, kiwi, cherries, but bananas need to be sprinkled with lemon juice first so they won’t turn brown – and any other fruit your family loves)


Lay raw cookie dough slices in 12″ pizza (or round) pan or 13×9″ baking pan.

Bake at 350 for 12 to 18 minutes (baked completely but not brown).

Set aside to cool.

While baking, mix together cream cheese, butter and vanilla.

Once cookie crust has cooled, spread cream cheese “pizza filling” onto cookie crust.

Top your pizza with fruit. Either by adding one type of fruit per slice (for the more picky eaters) or creating rings of fruit on the pizza.

Dot with Orange marmalade (or jam of your choice) and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

TAH-DAH!!!! FRUIT PIZZA for friends!

Chaos!! Love it!

Hope y’all enjoy it as much as we always did!
