Celebrate Celiac Awareness Month With Gimbal's Fine Candies! {Review & Giveaway}

Hard to believe that it is almost the end of May already! Weren't we just buried in snow yesterday? We have been getting our garden planted and have been enjoying fixing up the yard for the summer. Getting things ready for the summer is always something that we enjoy and our children love being involved.
So, with it being May that means one thing. It is Celiac Awareness Month! Fortunately, our family doesn't suffer from this or any other food-related allergy or disease but I know several people who do and it isn't a fun thing. People who deal with Celiac Disease have to be so careful what they eat and even, what their food touches. If their food comes in contact with anything containing wheat or gluten products, they can get very sick. I have a good friend who is like this and it is difficult for her to get people to understand just how sensitive she is to gluten.
So, in honor of Celiac Awareness Month, I am going to bring you a yummy review from Gimbal's Fine Candies because their candies are totally allergy-free (peanut-free, tree nut-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free and egg-free) and are perfect for ANYONE! If you have a sweet tooth and are looking for some delicious snacking options, Gimbal's will most certainly have something that you will enjoy. From hot candy to sour, they have something for everyone. Before I continue though, here is a brief overview of this company...

In 1898, Alexander Gimbal founded the Gimbal Candy Kitchen in bustling downtown San Francisco. Four generations later, all of us at Gimbal's Fine Candies remain passionate about making delectable treats. We love candy!

Our motto is - "Making Gourmet Candies for Everyone Everyday." From old-time favorites, to fun and innovative new candies - everything we create is made with pride in USA.

I have reviewed Gimbal's Fine Candies here on my blog in the past and let me tell you...that candy didn't last very long! My children love treats. :) My husband also has a pretty big sweet tooth and he especially loves gummy type candy so he was also in the candy quite a bit. Jelly beans are his "veggie" of choice (along with candy corn) and we always laugh about that when we have a bag of jelly beans laying around.
So, for this review I was sent some bags of some of what I thought would be our favorite candy from Gimbal's. I received Cherry Lovers, Sour Gourmet Jelly Beans, and Sour Lovers. These bags are a good size and so they can last a long time...as long as you don't have five people digging into the bag daily. :)
Sour Lovers are basically gummy hearts that are covered in a sour sugar. They consist of 12 different flavors, from Bing cherry to Meyer lemon, each bag is bursting with flavor. The Sour Gourmet Jelly Beans (made with real fruit juice!) also have 12 different flavors in each bag and these are definitely for the person who loves sour candy!
When I asked my children to pick their favorite out of the three bags, they chose Cherry Lovers! I have to agree with them. While the other flavors were super yummy, the Cherry Lovers were the number one hit. These are about as "everything cherry" that you can get. Flavors include wild cherry, cherry vanilla, black cherry, chocolate cherry, cherry cheesecake, cherry Daiquiri, cherry cola, kiwi cherry and bing cherry. These flavors are AMAZING and my children loved them.
My three little taste-testers were all too willing to try out these candies from Gimbal's and I have to say, once they tasted them I had a hard time getting them to stop. Making snacking fun doesn't have to be complicated...just grab a bag of Gimbal's and dig in! The 13 ounce bags that I received retail for about $4.29 but you can certainly pick from a variety of sizes, including a 38 oz. jar. Make sure you check out Gimbal's on Facebook to stay current with news and other fun stuff.

Gimbal's has offered a fun giveaway for you all today! The prize will be 2 bags of Sour Lovers, 2 bags of Cherry Lovers and 2 bags of Cinnamon Lovers!!! Here are your easy entry options...

Cure the Summertime Blues with Kidorable!! {Review & Giveaway}

Here in this house, we are all about Kidorable. My boys have worn the rain boots for years and have literally worn them out completely. I mean, to the point of having holes in the rubber. They wear them EVERYWHERE and absolutely love them. I think the fireman boots are the favorite around here...the dinosaurs are a close second. :) For Christmas, I gave my niece the butterfly backpack and apparently, she uses it all the time and adores it. Kidorable is guaranteed to be a favorite of any child and as a parent, I find that even I have a special place in my heart for Kidorable too. :)
With summer time knocking on our door (although we have a FROST warning tonight...really?!?!?) it is getting to be time to break out the swimsuits, fun summer towels and sunscreen. Pool days are just around the corner and I know my children have already been begging to be in the pool. Actually, we had a few HOT days here and my children were in the pool and loved it. So, now that it is cool again they are still wanting to swim but poor things just don't know any better. Haha!
Anyway, to celebrate summer and all the fun that goes with it, Kidorable is offering 20% off any hooded towel! That means you can get any adorable towel of your choice and knock 20% off the price! Yay!! So, if you have a little one who needs or wants a new towel for the summer season, check out Kidorable's super cute offerings...you don't need a coupon, the 20% is already programmed into the towels. :)
I have never had the opportunity to review a Cotton Hooded Towel from Kidorable so when offered a chance to receive one, I was definitely excited. For this review I chose to receive the Dinosaur Towel. My boys are on a dinosaur kick lately and so this was guaranteed to be a huge hit with them. The towel arrived recently and we were able to check it out...suuuuuuuuuuper cute!! It comes in a heavy-duty, zippered bag and is tied with a Kidorable ribbon, making it ready to be given as a gift.
Some of the highlights of this towel are "gloves" that look like dinosaur paws for the child to slip their hands in. This makes wrapping the towel around you after bathing or swimming super easy. Then, there is the "mouth" of the dinosaur, which is actually the hood. It has teeth around the top and two eyes on top of the hood. I love love LOVE the snap closure at the neck line of the towel, so you can bundle up your little tyke and keep them warm. There are also cute little "spikes" that run down the back of the towel, so your child can feel and look like a real dinosaur!
My littlest guy LOVES this towel and I had no trouble getting him to model it for me. It is a perfect fit for him!! It touches the ground, which is totally fine because that means he can grow into it a little bit.
Isn't it cute?? Really, Kidorable has left no detail out of this towel. I can almost guarantee you that any hooded towel from them will be just as detailed. They truly know how to make quality children's products that kids will embrace and love. This summer, you child will be the hit at the pool or the beach. Let them pick out their very own towel and celebrate summer...the KIDORABLE way!
Kidorable has offered to give away an umbrella of the winner's choice...just in case we have some drippy days this summer. Check out the easy entry options below...

Toss in the Flavor with Redpack Tomatoes!


I think it is safe to say that summer has arrived. At least here at my house it has! The days are warmer, the sun is brighter, we have bought the children a 12 foot pool that they have been spending their days in and the central air has been cranking. Yes, summer is here and that means it is time to bust out the yummy summer recipes! I love to cook and trying out new recipes is something that I have always enjoyed.
So when you have summer, recipes, food and fun...you have to have some Redpack Tomatoes on hand!! I always associated canned tomatoes with spaghetti sauce but Red Pack has opened my eyes to new and innovative recipe ideas. When you are planning out your picnic menu, make sure your recipes include some of these amazing tomato products.
I wanted to take a moment to tell you about a fun promotion that Redpack is having on their Facebook page. Right now, Redpack is hosting a Grand Prize Picnic Basket Giveaway (worth $400!!) that is packed with all the tools that you need to chop, spin, toss, dress and mix your most favorite summer salads!! From now until June 10, you can enter this WEEKLY giveaway so make sure you hurry on over there and get your entry in. Click here to find out more.

During the duration of this promotion, Redpack will also be sharing some fun recipes featuring their canned tomato products along with seasonal fruits and vegetables. YUM!
So, for this review I was sent a fun, Redpack Tomatoes Springtime Gift Pack, which included. two 14.5 oz. Redpack Petite Diced tomatoes, one 28-oz can of Petite Diced Tomatoes, a Redpack Wine Tote and six light and easy salad recipes. It also contained a handy measurement conversion magnet, which I can use when cooking and baking!
One of the recipes that caught my eye in the pamphlet was the recipe for Sassy Chicken Salad. I whipped up this simple salad in a short amount of time. Of course, one of the amazing ingredients are Redpack Petite Diced Tomatoes. :) I love this salad because it has such a delightful combination of fruit and vegetables...the grapes add so much. I ended up leaving out the green chilies and just used the Petite Diced Tomatoes. I don't like spicy all that much so it worked out well. Want to make this salad yourself? Here's the recipe!


1      (10 ounce) can RED GOLD® DICED TOMATOES & GREEN CHILIES, drained
½     cup light mayonnaise
1      tablespoon honey
2      cups chunked cooked chicken breast
1      cup thinly sliced celery
1      cup grapes, halved
⅓     cup chopped toasted pecans

· In a medium bowl, combine RED GOLD® DICED TOMATOES & GREEN CHILIES, mayonnaise and honey.  Stir in chicken, celery, grapes and pecans.

· Cover and chill.  Maybe served in hollowed out melons, avocados or papayas. Also makes a great sandwich when served on a Croissant.

- Cooking Hint:
To toast pecans, bake uncovered in ungreased shallow pan in 350 degrees oven for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden brown.  Another option is to toast them in the microwave.  Place a single layer on a microwave safe plate and cook on high for 2 minutes.  Stir and cook for 1 more minute.
I didn't have any Croissants so I used a sun-dried tomato wrap instead, threw in some leafy lettuce and oh my...what a lovely wrap it was!! The flavor combinations are delicious. I have always loved chicken salad but this recipe is my new favorite that I will be hanging onto for future use.
So, the next time you are looking for some innovative and exciting options for your recipes, try adding in some Redpack Tomatoes and see what YOU can come up with! I loved the chicken salad and cannot wait to try some additional recipes. Again, please be sure to stop by Redpack's Facebook Page to enter their Toss In The Flavor giveaway!

I'm Back!!!!!

Hello everyone!! I hope you are doing well. I have been MIA lately and feel bad about leaving you all hanging. I had Carpal Tunnel Surgery on my right hand a little over a week ago and thought I would be able to at least use my fingers on that hand but, things didn't go as planned. Surgery was successful and everything went great but I was a bit more debilitated than I thought I would be. However, I am now able to type again and have been going to physical therapy so my hand feels brand new! It is great to be able to feel my fingers again. Ahhh. :)

Then, just when I thought everything was in the clear, two of my children came down with a 24 hour stomach flu. Oh man. I hate the stomach flu and this one wasn't horrible, but enough to keep me running with laundry, puke buckets and cool washcloths for feverish foreheads. The two that were sick are pretty much well now and so I am disinfecting and trying to keep the rest of us healthy. Hopefully we are in the clear now.
By the way, in case I have never told you, I LOVE Elderberry Syrup when it comes to colds and the flu. It seriously is amazing. We just came out of a horrible cold/flu season and our family didn't get as much as a sniffle through the entire winter. I have been using Elderberry Syrup with this bug that has been here and I think that is why some of us are still healthy. I am sort of kicking myself though because I hadn't been giving anyone elderberry syrup and then BAM---sick. Lesson learned. Elderberry Syrup will be continued throughout the summer. In case you are interested, here is my recipe...

Elderberry Syrup

1. Measure 1 cup of elderberries. You can also add in cinnamon, ginger, cloves, etc. (1/2 tsp. of each desired spice) 

2. Place berries, spices and 4 cups water in a sauce pan. 

3. Bring to a boil and then SIMMER for 30 minutes.

4. Strain the berries, save the liquid and discard the cooked berries.

5. Cool until lukewarm, then add 1/2 cup raw honey.

6. Once mixed well, place in a glass jar and store in fridge. (You can add the juice of one lemon to increase refrigerator time)

Adults can take 1 Tbsp a day and children 1 tsp a day.
For children under 2, make without honey. 

So, there are my excuses for the lack of blogging. :) I have LOADS of amazing reviews that are going to be coming so please stay tuned. You won't be sorry. :))) Happy Sunday, everyone!!

Dial Baby Body + Hair Wash & Dial Kids Foaming Hand Wash Review & Giveaway {3 Winners!}

Now that spring is in full swing around here, I am seeing my kids come in from outdoor play absolutely FILTHY. This time of year is enjoyable because we have been cooped up inside all winter and spring fever has set in. However, I don't enjoy the mud and mess that inevitably comes along with the warmer weather. This means that we are doing alot of hand washing and bathing around here. Hand washing is the thing that we are doing the most though because little hands get very grubby very quickly. :) Mud and dirt just seems to find my children...how about yours? ;)
Being that I am a Dial Soap fan, I was thrilled to find out that they have some new Dial for Kids products available for mommies like me who are constantly in "clean" mode. There are two new products that have been added to the Dial family and I wanted to share with you a bit about them today.

Dial Baby Body + Hair Wash and Dial Kids Foaming Hand Wash are the newest additions to the Dial family and I have been given the opportunity to review both of these fantastic products. First, a little bit about them...
Dial Baby Body + Hair Wash
Developed with Pediatric Dermatologists, this tear-free formula is pH balanced and hypoallergenic, with no parabens or artificial dyes, for babies’ perfect skin. Gently removes environmental dirt for a head to toe clean! 
Dial Kids Foaming Hand Wash
Makes hand washing fun for all ages! Hypoallergenic, no artificial dyes, no parabens, pH balanced and gentle on kids’ skin! 
So, for this review I was sent a bottle of each of these new products. I am very familiar with the Dial for Kids products but haven't experienced the Dial for Baby products yet so I was very excited to try these out on my children and on my 9 month old.
First of all, I will talk about the Dial Kids Foaming Hand Wash. This hand wash is fun, smells yummy and is perfect for little people. The first two days of having this hand wash in my bathroom consisted of my children finding excuses as to why they had to wash their hands. The foam was a novelty and unfortunately, was all over my bathroom at first. They LOVE it. 
This foaming hand wash is super easy for kids to use. Just one pump will suffice and it lathers up wonderfully. Sometimes, kids need to SEE the soap to know that they have it on their hands and this soap is perfect for that. I used it on my hands and really noticed how it felt soft and was super gentle on my skin. We don't have serious skin issues here but a few of my children have battled with Eczema in the past so I tend to err on the side of caution when it comes to hand soap for them. All three of my older children absolutely love this hand wash and I will continue to use it in the future.
Next, the Dial Baby Body + Hair Wash is also very nice. It comes in an easy to handle bottle, with a tiny pour hole in the top, For those of you with babies who are sensitive to scents and harsher baby products, this is a fantastic product for you. This is a fragrance free baby product that lathers up nicely and is gentle on baby's skin. I have been noticing small patches of Eczema popping up on my baby's arms lately so I am trying to use only gentle products on her. I hate baby Eczema but am thankful that I have the option of using hypo-allergenic products on her. I love this baby body wash and will be recommending it to other moms for sure.
So, my overall opinion of these new Dial products for kids is very positive. I love the options and that I can make hygiene so fun for my kids. Both of these products retail for no more than $4 and can be found at mass drug and retail stores across the country. 
I have been given some coupons for either of these products to give away to three of you! Here are your easy entry options...

Kitchen Frontier's Premium Lemon Squeezer Review

I LOVE being in my kitchen. For the past four months I have been making Amish Friendship Bread of all varieties and am basically baking every 10 days with that starter mix. On top of that, I enjoy baking other yummy goodies for my family. Cooking has also been a favorite past time for me and I love trying out new recipes. My family isn't totally adventurous when it comes to trying out new foods but I try to prepare things that I know they like already, with a bit of variation. One thing that I love using is fresh squeezed lemon juice. When I make my Dandelion Jelly (almost time to make that again!!), my recipe calls for fresh lemon juice and the aroma of fresh squeezed lemons permeates my kitchen during jelly-making days, which I love! I have a small lemon juicer that I use when a recipe calls for fresh lemon juice and having a juicer of any kind on hand is always important when you bake and cook as much as I do. 
Well, today I am going to introduce you to a really popular lemon squeezer that comes from a company called Kitchen Frontiers. This squeezer is unlike any I have seen before and it works amazingly! So, let's check it out, shall we?
For this review I was sent a Kitchen Frontier Premium Lemon Squeezer. This particular squeezer comes well packaged and is ready to use, no assembly required. It says that it is a professional lemon squeezer so I figured that this would be a nice, heavy-duty squeezer.
Upon opening the box, I found a fantastic looking kitchen tool...perfect for lemons, limes and even oranges! It has an extra large bowl in which you can place your fruits and the design is very sturdy. Made with a polished stainless steel mirror finish, this squeezer looks amazing in any kitchen gadget collection.
I didn't have any lemons on hand for my first time using this squeezer, so I used some oranges instead! There's nothing like fresh squeezed orange juice! To my embarrassment, I figured out after the fact that I put my oranges in the squeezer upside down...haha! To correctly use this squeezer, place the fruit upside down inside the bottom bowl area. I put it in the other way around but it still worked great (aside from getting some juice squirting out around the edges of the squeezer...when used properly, this will NOT happen. Yep. I learned something today. :) ) One thing I love about this squeezer is that you don't have to use brute force to get the juice out. It is pretty effortless to use and non-stick, meaning your fruit comes right out when you are done juicing it!
When you are done using your Lemon Squeezer, it is super easy to clean - toss it in the dishwasher or rinse it off with clean water. That's it! So easy, I need kitchen gadgets that are easy to clean.
This lemon squeezer retails for $18.50 and you can purchase it directly from Amazon. So, if you are someone who juices lemons and limes regularly, or if you love fresh squeezed oranges, check out this juicer today...I am very happy with mine and I know you will be too.

Kill Cliff Recovery Drink Review

I have been trying to work on some weight loss and although I haven't lost a ton of weight, I am definitely on the right track to feeling better about myself. When you are a busy mom, it is hard to focus on YOU and so often times, you forget about taking care of yourself. Well, I did juicing for a month and after all my produce froze in my garage refrigerator, I didn't continue that. We had such a cold winter, my fridge was freezing everything. So, my hubby ended up buying me an exercise bike and I spend about 1/2 hour a day on that (when I can of course) and really enjoy the exercise. One thing that is well known about any type of exercise is that you get thirsty and need hydration constantly. I keep a large water bottle on my bicycle and usually finish it completely during each workout session. I love exercising as it really helps me to feel better...not to mention how it boosts my weight-loss efforts.
Well, for those of you who workout at home, or for you who are gym regulars, I have something fun to share with you today! Kill Cliff is a company that offers Sports Recovery Drinks and Energy Bars to help keep you going while you are on the move! I had never heard of this company until recently and was excited to share them with you all. Here is a bit more about this company...

Kill Cliff, Inc was founded by a former Navy SEAL who grew tired of using motrin and caffeine-laden drinks to refuel his body after his daily workouts. He was convinced that energy drinks and sports drinks were all missing key components to actually aid in recovery. His idea was to reinvent sports nutrition by developing a true recovery drink made with premium functional ingredients in a specialized formulation that is both healthier and tastier. So he collaborated with top athletes and the best people in the beverage industry to formulate Kill Cliff.

Kill Cliff is a functional recovery drink made up of B, C, and E vitamins, electrolytes, and plant extracts including ginger root, green tea extract, and ginseng root powder as well as a unique enzyme blend. Kill Cliff aids in recovery and helps you feel awesome again through micronutrient replenishment and is best taken before, after or during a strenuous workout, or when you need to fight that not-so-awesome feeling. Kill Cliff is an alternative to other everyday beverage choices; no sugar, no artificial colors, no artificial flavors and only 15 calories! And it’s the perfect complement to macronutrient-based protein and carb recovery products. Kill Cliff also tastes AWESOME and just to be clear, it is NOT an energy drink.

It really helps back up a product when the founder is someone who knows all about physical exertion and the need to replenish the body after hard work. I love how a former Navy SEAL is the founder, any military personnel have my greatest respect.
So, for the purpose of this review I was sent a case of Kill Cliff Recovery Drinks to try out and I was definitely curious as to how they tasted!
My case contained six cans of Kill Cliff in the four available flavors. At only 20 calories per can and just 25mg of caffeine, these drinks are a nice alternative to high-calorie and heavily caffeinated energy drinks. I am NOT an energy drink fan simply because of all the caffeine and so these were perfect for me...because they are not energy drinks at all. I am also not drinking alot of caffeine right now because I breastfeed and don't want my baby getting alot of that so that is the other reason I liked these drinks.
The flavors that were included in my box were:

  • Tasty (Blood Orange)
  • Free Fall (Lemon-Lime)
  • Double Awesomeness (Pomegranate Watermelon)
  • Berry Legit (Blackberry Lemonade)

The Berry Legit is their newest flavor that they have just launched and it is very tasty! My husband and some of his friends tried out Kill Cliff, as did myself and my children. I only gave the children small sips to see how they liked it and to say that they just "liked" it would be an understatement. They LOVED it. My husband's friends enjoyed the flavor very much as well and found that while they didn't experience a "caffeine high", they still felt great after enjoying a can. Personally, I enjoyed the Free Fall the best. I love lemon lime flavored soda and this was a refreshing alternative to that.
So, I would have to say that the Kill Cliff energy drinks are amazing! I loved the flavors and the variety. You can find Kill Cliff Recovery Drinks at KillCliff.com, as well as at Vitamin Shoppe and GNC stores nationwide. They retail for $2.99/can and $9.99-$10.99 for 4-packs. You can find Kill Cliff on Facebook as well to keep up with current news and photos! Kill Cliff has everything you need for a great workout and for keeping yourself feeling replenished and refreshed no matter what you are doing. Check them out today.

Dial Miracle Oil Hand Soap Review & Giveaway


If you have been a reader here for any length of time, you will know that I LOVE the Dial company and I love scented hand soaps. Recently, I was given the opportunity to review Dial Miracle Oil Body Wash and was thrilled when I found out that there was a hand soap to match! How cool is that?!?
I have been really enjoying the Dial Miracle Oil Body Wash and have grown to love the scent. At first, I wasn't thrilled about the smell because it seemed very musky to me. I am not a fan of musk scents so it wasn't amazing but as I have been using it more and more, I have grown to really love it. This hand soap is no exception. Here is a bit more about the NEW Dial Miracle Oil Hand Soap...

Miracle Oil Hand Soap is infused with Marula Oil to nourish and deeply hydrate your skin while protecting it from skin-damaging free radicals.

It is just like the nourishing body wash! Ok, so in my post about the body wash I had to do some research about what exactly Marula Oil is and wanted to once again share with you what it is and what it does. It is amazing stuff!

Marula Oil is an all-natural, cold pressed, highly nutritious, light textured oil. Marula leaves and bark have wonderful properties but the skin care properties of natural Marula Oil are perhaps the best of all. This multipurpose oil contains powerful antioxidants, high concentrations of nutrients, minerals and essential fatty acids that protect against environmental aggressors, reverse photodamage, boost cellular activity, hydrate at the deepest levels and repair the skin. The anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties of Marula Oil reduce the need for preservatives. Marula Oil has a clear, pale, golden-brown color with a pleasant sweet aroma.

So now that we all know what this oil is, lets move on with my review. I was very excited to be a part of this review opportunity, and was even more excited to try out this new deep cleansing hand soap.
For this review I was sent a bottle of Dial Miracle Oil Hand Soap to try out! This soap is brand new to the Dial family and I have to say, it is a nice addition.
I love the shimmery look of the bottle, and it looks pretty sitting on my bathroom sink too. The pretty amber color of the soap, combined with the blues in the labeling are all very attractive and appealing. Having pretty soaps in my bathroom is important to me, as well as having a soap that is effective.
This soap is designed to moisturize and hydrate your skin, all while cleansing it thoroughly. Miracle Oil is infused with the Marula Oil and uses Micro-scrubber technology to help keep your skin from being damaged. The many times I have used this soap, I have not noticed my hands being dry. I wash my hands frequently (between the many nose-wiping and diaper changing activities in my house) and need a conditioning soap to keep my skin from being dried out.
All in all, I have been very pleased with this Marula Oil-Infused Hand Soap. It smells lovely and looks great on any sink in my house. Best of all, it cleanses my skin without drying it out. So, the next time you are out shopping for hand soap, be sure to check out this newest addition from Dial!
Now, I have a special giveaway. I will be giving away THREE coupons for FREE Dial Hand Soap (Including this one!) to one of you! Here are your entry options...
