Check out Explore Cuisine, it’s delicious

Posted on December 10, 2017 in recipes Reviews

We tried Explore Cuisine for the first time, the other night.  It’s so delicious!  My mother in law made it, and we didn’t tell our husband’s what it was.  They just thought it was normal noodles, but it was designer noodles.

The Rice Pasta was quite yummy.  It had a great taste, and no after taste.  In other words, when I was done eating, I didn’t have to worry about the taste left behind.  The Red Rice Macaroni was so good, I went back for seconds.  I never eat seconds.  I just couldn’t get enough.  And, there were no left overs, which says a lot because we usually have leftovers.

These pastas are Gluten Free and Organic.

We just took the Rice Pasta and put some butter over it.  It was delicious without all those added things.  We could taste it, plain as day, and it was so yummy.

My sister tried the black bean spaghetti, and she said it was just as good as the rice pasta.  She said she used a recipe on Explore Cuisine’s website.

While exploring the Far East, our Founder, Joe Spronz, had a light-bulb moment! With new health trends and dietary needs on the rise, why not create a healthy, bean-based pasta that everyone’s been craving? With a single idea to reinvent the pasta industry and inspiration from the soybean noodles he discovered on his trip to China, Joe made his way back to the United States to begin production; the Explore Cuisine brand was born!

Amazing Socks from Dead Soxy

Posted on December 10, 2017 in 2017 Holiday Gift Guide Reviews

Dead Soxy is my go to company for socks.  I love the way they fit.  Not too big, like most socks I was wearing.  And, they have no shows, and higher socks.  They really got making socks, right.  The socks are so stylish, and comfortable.  And, as I said, fit so well.

They even have no slip socks.  That’s fantastic!  I love no slip socks.  The way my 20 year old daughter is, she would fall without them.  She slides her feet, rather than picking them up.  And, I’ve watched her hit the floor numerous times.  Now, with Dead Soxy no slip socks, that’s a thing of the past.

The no show socks are perfect, when wearing Toms, or any other brand of low tennis shoe.  They really make them grand.  They are just that, no show.  If it’s a warm, Summer’s day, these are perfect.

These socks, pictured above, are so cool looking.  They would be great for work.  You can keep your legs warm, and still be stylish.  I love my high socks, that don’t fall down.  They don’t fall down, either.  I love them.  They are super comfy too.

I just realized you can get free shipping on all US orders, now through December 16.  That’s an amazing offer.  You can order your socks, and not have to pay shipping.  I’ve got to take advantage of this.  I do 13 stockings every year, and I can really use some socks for them, but hate paying the extra for shipping.

Kennywood Holiday Lights are Fantastic This Year

Posted on December 10, 2017 in 2017 Holiday Gift Guide Kennywood kiddieland kids Reviews

We have made this a tradition, in our family, and we are not disappointed.  Kennywood’s Holiday Lights Show is Fantastic this year.  They are exceptionally great this time around.  We even got close to Santa Claus, with no long line.  We were able to see him, and Jacob just adored that part of the trip.

Santa will be here in a few short weeks, and if you haven’t already, go to see the Holiday Lights at Kennywood.  You will love it, whether you have little ones, or not.  We, of course, got some toys, for Jacob to bring home.  They are really cool, and were inexpensive.  The tree has a strobe light on the bottom, and it reflects off of everything.  Really Cool, Kennywood!

Seeing Santa, and Christmas Kenny The Kangaroo, was the first thing we did, in the park.  We wanted to get there, before the line got too long.  So we got there at 5:45 pm.  We were there with a few more people, but the wait was so short.  Usually the line is really long, to see Jolly Old Saint Nick.  We were in and out, within 15 minutes.  Jacob loved being able to tell Santa what he wants for Christmas.  This was a highlight of our trip.  And, Jacob is usually scared of Santa, but this one made his night.

We went through Kiddyland, and Jacob got to ride a few rides.  He really enjoyed his time at Kennywood.  Kiddyland is his favorite section, and the lines weren’t long there either.  We got really lucky this year.  Usually we wait a while to get Jacob on the rides, and then wait while Jacob rides the rides.  Jacob usually gets bored with the wait.  I’m sure it had to do with the fact the temperature was only 22 degrees, when we were at Kennywood.

They do have heating stations, so you can get the feeling back to parts of your body.  The cooling stations are really nice, and it only takes seconds to get warmed up.  You can also get Pizza, or Potato Patch Fries, along with a delicious Hot Cocoa.  The Hot Cocoa was my favorite part of the trip.  It was so delicious.  I don’t know why I can’t make it like that at home.  And, while I was drinking it, I stayed nice and warm.

The way Kennywood is all lit up, is Fantastic.  It really is an enjoyable site to see, this time of year.  With no long wait lines.  We were there for 2 hours, and got to see the entire park.  Open rides were really cool too.  My husband, and son, as well as my Mother in Law, and Father In Law, really enjoyed themselves.  Our pictures will last a lifetime, but we will have to go again next year to see some more great lights, and enjoy more rides, with Jacob.  While he’s young, and still believes, this is so much fun.  We will even enjoy after that, because my 20 year old, daughter, still loves going to Kennywood Holiday Lights.

The big tree is always our favorite picture.  What a fantastic site.  You can see that we aren’t the only ones that love this picture.  Others are taking the same photo.

Make sure you get your tickets and go tonight.  Or, any weekend between now and the end of the month.
