I am a Cascade Platinum Influencer!! #myplatinum

“I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Cascade. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank you for participating.”

I have a little confession, I love washing dishes. No, not by hand silly. But, I love organizing the dishwasher so everything fits in its little slot, adding the soap or pacs and pushing all the little buttons. It is so satisfying to hear the water start and know that my dishes are going to get sparkling clean.  You see, I lived in apartments for years without dishwashers. Yeah, that is how it is in city living. So if you take your dishwasher for granted, well, give it a little pat and say thanks, that you dont have to hand wash every little caked on plate, spoon. fork and knife. 

Recently I found out that I was chosen to be a Cascade Platinum Influencer, and I am so excited. Not just because I get to try out the coolest up to date Cascade Platinum Pacs. Not just because this campaign is associated with Gail Simmons (LOVE her)!! Not just because there is a cool giveaway included with this campaign. But just because I love washing my dishes.

So just what are these little Cascade Platinum Pacs??

   They are little pacs that fit neatly into your dishwasher and are supposed to "deliver the most powerful clean available from Cascade while simultaneously helping to maintain the sparkling look of your clean dishwasher interior."

For Real? Cascade Platinum Pacs sound too good to be true.

  Not only do they clean the interior of your dishwasher but they powers away tough, 24 hour stuck-on food, liminate the need to pre-wash dishes and delivers exceptional dishware shine.

  Well ladies and gentleman-boy do these little Cascade Platinum Pacs pack a punch! My dishes are cleaner than ever and my dishwasher looks pretty dang good too!

You know I am a happy Mama. when Ana has clean dishes and I didnt even have to super scrub them first.
    So here is the fun part:

    Have you ever noticed how many recipes are posted on Pinterest? Now more than ever people really eat with their eyes! Cascade has teamed up with Top Chef judge ( I am a HUGE Top Chef Fan)  and editor of Food + Wine magazine, Gail Simmons, to discuss why presentation is just as important as preparation.

  • From prep to plating: It’s more than just a great-tasting recipe, but also perfect presentation. Sparkling dishes, shining flat ware and spot-free glasses truly let you put your best food forward with culinary creations that pop!

  • Gail recommends impressing with a Platinum Presentation: “The easiest recipes pop with unexpected, gourmet presentations. Drizzle bright sauces on sparkling white plates or layer desserts in crystal-clean glassware. Keep your presentation sparkling with Cascade Platinum, which keeps dishes perfect for anytime entertaining and impromptu guests.” 

 I know that ever since I started washing my dishes with Cascade Platinum Pacs they look fabulous for all of my pinning pleasure. And I have been pinning like crazy. Check out a couple of my recent meals:
