Nick’s Stick’s – Fill Your Basket With Sticks Giveaway – Spring 2017 –

As we approach the Spring Holiday of Easter the talk of baskets comes into the stores and into our conversations. When I was young I would look forward to the basket filled with snacks, treats and of course a stuffed bunny.

Now that I am older, I tend to shy away from the candy and treats and like my baskets filled with more savory items. One item that I will be putting in my husband’s baskets this year is a pack of meat sticks from Nick’s Stick’s!

WOWBUTTER Review and Giveaway

When I recently attended the Gluten Free + Allergen Friendly Expo I was on a search. I was looking for alternatives to my beloved peanut butter. Despite loving peanut butter & Jelly sandwiches, I have found that I end up with severe re-flux a couple of hours after eating.

In the past I have tried different nut butters, and have found a couple I really like. Since I am a fan of different types of foods and tend to go a phase eating only one particular type, it is always better to have more options available to me.

As I mentioned, when I went to the expo, I as on a search for peanut butter alternatives. As luck would have it, I had a sample in my bag from a company called WOWBUTTER. As I tried this sample I was amazed how much it tasted like a high quality peanut butter.

It is no secret that we are a snack house, and even our animals have gotten a piece or two. Many times we cruise the isles of our local store and I am almost sight blind to all the products on the shelves.

Recently we were at our local store and I noticed a jerky brand that I had not previously seen. The company was Country Archer and the store had a couple different flavors available It is funny how something can be in clear sight, but we are blind to it – that is how it was with this jerky.

Dave’s Gourmet Specialty Sauces Review

Dave’s Gourmet Specialty Sauces: Creamy Parmesan Romano Pasta Sauce and Wild Mushroom Pasta Sauce Review + Giveaway

I have mentioned in the past that my husband comes from an Italian family. There are stories of his youth that involve large plates of pasta, zucchini boats, lasagna, salads and of course garlic bread.

While these are fond memories, those days have passed for the most part and our own cooking limits the quantities of food selections dramatically. The one thing that has not changed is the love of sauces that he has. The one thing is that since he grew-up on authentic sauces, he is somewhat picky about the pasta sauces he eats now.

When I saw Dave’s Gourmet and their line of pasta sauces I thought that maybe Jason would find a pasta sauce that would remind him of those days of endless pasta meals.

Crispy Green: Crispy Fruit – Valentine’s Day 2017 Giveaway

Crispy Green: Crispy Fruit Valentine’s 2017 Giveaway

When I was younger (much younger) and in grade school, I loved when the time came to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Overall, I remember this as a time to have cupcakes in class, and most of all, trade envelopes and treats with my fellow classmates.

The Valentine’s given usually reflected the personality and always gender appropriate of the giver. Many students also gave an additional treat with their card ranging from chocolate to conversation hearts. Rarely were the treats healthy and were always full of sugar, many times cavities could be seen month later.

Many things have changed since those carefree candy filled days and parents and teachers are looking for healthy alternatives to share with classrooms such as Crispy Green’s Crispy Fruit.
