As I have mentioned in the past, I get to sample, try and attend many things as a blogger. A couple of weeks back I went to the Gluten-Free Allergen Friendly Expo here in San Diego and I had the opportunity to see one of my favorite local brands – Milton’s Craft Bakers.

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

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.

Dr. Jacobs Naturals: Eucalyptus Castile Liquid Soap Review

Dr. Jacobs Naturals: Eucalyptus Castile Liquid Soaps – Review + Giveaway

I have mentioned in the past that one of my favorite soaps to use is castile soap. The reason for this is that it is one of the most gentle soaps while remaining the most versatile and adaptable soaps on the market.

As I have gotten older I have seen the need products that are pure and simple. When I was young I loved things that smelled good, and really did not care about the product much further than that. Even when it came to my dog, it was my goal to make him smell good. As I have aged, I have learned what the good smelling things can actually do to your skin,

As I said above, castile soap is versatile and simple. Last year I came across a company called Dr. Jacob Naturals and their line of castile based soaps. I recently reviewed their set of exfoliating bar soaps and received a couple of samples of their liquid soaps. As I was washing my hands that night, I began wondering how this would do in other applications and was eager to give it a try.
