Quick-Fix Dinners Cookbook is so Fascinating

Posted on October 2, 2017 in 2017 Holiday Gift Guide recipes

I love the new Quick-Fix Dinners Cookbook from Southern Living.  It makes dinner time so much more satisfying, because it doesn’t take as long to make it now.

No longer stress at dinner time, now you have recipes, at your fingertips, that take literally 10 – 30 minutes.  The Veggie Roll-ups is one of my favorites, and the first that I tried.  It took no time at all to get it made, and was delicious.

In QUICK-FIX DINNERS, the editors of Southern Living magazine have streamlined crowd-pleasing Southern classics and modern fare to bring you recipes that take just 10, 20 or 30 minutes to make, (like a 30-minute Cast Iron Chicken Picatta, a 20-minute side of Roasted Broccoli with Orange-Chipotle Butter, and 10-minute Ambrosia Meringue Trifles!).

My husband’s favorite is the Chicken and Wild Rice Salad.  He loves rice, so this was great for Joe.  Page 171, for this recipe, and it’s delicious as well.  It only takes 10 – 12 minutes to cook.  Because of the fact, that you use a packet of rice, instead of making it from long grain rice.

Even 6 year old, Jacob, will eat when I use Quick-Fix Dinners.  Jacob loves that I have more time to play with him, because dinner doesn’t take quite so long, when I’m cooking from the cook book.  He loves the food, too.  I do think he loves that I have more time for him, but he actually eats what we put on his plate.  Which, he never does, and now it’s habit.

I’ve always loved Southern Living, but now they have given me a new found love for them.

The Quick-Fix Dinners Cookbook is a great value, as well.  Check out the link above, or below, to get yours today.

Cheaper Eye Glasses With The Same Result As The Expensive Glasses

Posted on October 2, 2017 in 2017 Holiday Gift Guide

Readers.com is a great go-to site, for great glasses.  I love them, and they look, and feel, great on.

I’ve got to try the coolest, classiest pairs, and I will wear them before my expensive glasses.  They have great style, along with the fact that they work.  They are the same strength as my prescription glasses, just a lot more stylish for barely any cost.

If you love the retro look, then The Red Bluff is a great choice for you! With metal accents, versatile color choices, and a retro square shape, just looking at this pair makes us think of Buddy Holly and Justin Timberlake. Available in powers +1.00 to +6.00.

I love The Red Bluff.  My wife loves the way I look in them, as well.  She has complimented me, tremendously, when wearing The Red Bluff.  My strength is a 1.50, so these definitely came in my strength.  I have never been happier with glasses, as I am with Readers.com.

Get style and convenience in one little package. Our Anderson reader has a lightweight frame with adjusting temples, nosepieces, and a handy pocket clip for storing. Losing your glasses will be a thing of the past.

I adore the Anderson readers, too.  They are so comfortable, and fit on my face perfectly.  Anderson is a popular style, and I understand why.  My wife loves me in these glasses, as much as she does The Red Bluff glasses.

I love the cost of these glasses, too.  They are priced low, and are a great value.  I love being able to have glasses in every room of the house.  I don’t have to go looking for where I left them, when I have a pair in every room.

You can also save 15% & get FREE SHIPPING when you spend $30, and enter the code on Readers.com.

We recently tried Label Daddy and LOVE It!

Posted on September 29, 2017 in Reviews

Label Daddy is fantastic for getting my 6 year old’s property labeled.

We had to send clothes to school, the first day, for their lockers.  I, of course, used Label Daddy to label Jacob’s clothes.  There’s a mega clothing pack, and I was even able to label his undies.  It’s so great to have a company that I can go to, and be able to know the labels are going to stick.

There are a lot of Labels to choose from.  There’s the Clothing packet, School Pack, write on – wipe off labels, etc.  Take a look on Label Daddy, to see what pack makes sense for you.

I received the Deluxe School Label Pack, and I have a few left, but I’ve labeled just about everything, including undies.

Labels included:

  • 45 Extra Small Clothing Labels (0.85″ x 0.47″)
  • 30 Small All Purpose Labels (1.59″ x 0.39″)
  • 20 Medium All Purpose Labels (1.99″ x 0.49″)
  • 10 Large All Purpose Labels (2.81″ x 0.68″)
  • 18 Mini Shoe Labels (1.18″ x 0.81″ Oval)
  • 8 Shoe Labels  (1.76″ x 1.21″ Oval)
  • 1 Bag Tag (3.89″ x 2.48″)
  • 4 Zipper Tags (0.69″ Circle)

This was enough to make the start of the school year go off with a bang.  With Jacob only being in First Grade, we still do label everything.  Not that I think anyone will steal it, but because that way Jacob remembers what is his.

Ozeri INSTAVAC Earth Green Nesting Food Storage Container Set is Wonderful

Posted on September 29, 2017 in Reviews women

The Ozeri INSTAVAC Earth Green Nesting Food Storage Container Set is grand.  We love it, in our household.

The bowls are great, with vacuum seal lids.  They keep the food fresh for so much longer.  And, the really cool thing, you save room in your cabinet, because the Instavac fit inside of each other.  Not that mine will be in the cabinet very long.  These are my “new” favorite Go To Bowls.  You will love them too.

Features include:

  • Instant vacuum freshness without pumps, motors or confusing parts; Simply press down on the lid and air is forced out via the one-way valve
  • Patented valve removes excess air to reduce naturally occurring bacteria; It also releases pressure to prevent spills and splatters in microwaves
  • Wave pattern on bottom of each container keeps cut fruit and vegetables elevated from water and juices
  • Handy date dial allows you to record when food was first stored and monitor days kept in the refrigerator
  • BPA-free, stain-resistant, shatter-proof and as transparent as glass; Freezer, microwave and dishwasher safe; Satisfaction guaranteed

I love the wave pattern, that keep my fruits and vegetables elevated from water & juices.  That has to be one of my favorite features.  I also love that it’s microwave safe.  I’ve already had them in the microwave, and love putting them there.

Lightboxarts are Great for Anytime of Year

Posted on September 29, 2017 in 2017 Halloween Gift Guide 2017 Holiday Gift Guide Reviews

Lightboxarts are so much fun.  They shine a little light on any subject.  From Halloween, to Christmas, to just a special mom, you can get them all over at Lightboxarts.

Lightboxarts are great.  They light up a dark, dull room, with their light.  You can get them in 4 different types of wood.  They really have made my day, and my 20 year old, daughter’s day.

I love the Halloween Lightboxarts, they will make our decorations a little brighter/scarier.  You can check out the Halloween choices, by clicking on the above or below links.

The Christmas Lightboxarts will light up the tree, a little brighter.  You can check out all the Christmas choices, too, simply by clicking on the link.

I just saw, on Lightboxarts, where you can get 10% off your first purchase.  Simply sign up for their newsletter, and get 10% off.  What a great discount.  Once you have one, you will love them all.  You won’t stop at one.  They are addicting.

My goal:  putting a Lightboxarts in every room of the house.  They make great night lights, and we can turn off all the big lights.  My 6 year old is afraid of the dark, so my house is lit up like day, even in the middle of the night.

The Parents Guide to Baby Led Weaning

Posted on September 28, 2017 in Reviews

The Parents’ Guide to Baby-Led Weaning is a great book, and resource.

If you have a little one, you might be wondering when the little one can be weaned.  According to the book, you can skip Purees all together and go straight to solid foods.  I will be passing this book on to a friend, that is currently pregnant.  She will appreciate knowing, what I didn’t know, 6 years ago.

There are recipes in The Parents’ Guide to Baby-Led Weaning that will make it easy to get your baby to eat solids, but 6 months.

Baby-led weaning means starting your baby on real table food from the start (at about 6 months old, depending on your baby) and skipping the purée stage completely. This means offering babies a selection of nutritious finger foods so they feel like they’re joining in on family meals. Baby-led weaning is especially popular with second children and beyond, because they’re so keen to mimic their older siblings.

Topics include:
• Tips for getting started with baby-led weaning, including signs of readiness

• Information on safe foods and progressing food sizes as your baby develops
• Strategies for dealing with food allergies
• Advice for vegetarian families
• Guidelines for modifying family meals

Even though my youngest is 6, I still read through The Parents’ Guide to Baby-Led Weaning, and got some great resources.  As I said, my friend will be glad to get this book, and learn the things that I had no clue of.  If I could go back, I would give my little one solids at an earlier age.

Keep an eye on our page for a fun contest, to win your own copy!
