Hello readers, I would like you to meet my nightmare friend, Ellyvan from Jungle Junction, a giant blue elephant on wheels (who thinks of this stuff?): I only say “nightmare” because my soon-to-be 3 year old LOVES this show (the real nightmare is my oldest son who planted the idea in his brother’s head for […]

Enjoy Life Trail Mixes

Enjoy Life

I recently received a couple complimentary packages of trail mix from Enjoy Life Natural Brands to sample and review on my blog.  I am always looking for healthy, safe snacks to stick in the boys’ lunch boxes and these sounded like it they would fit the bill perfectly.  While my kids are not allergic to […]

Schar Gluten Free Products

Schar Products0

Back in the late fall I received a complimentary sampling of products from Schar to review on my blog.  I am really embarrassed that it has taken so long for me to post this review, but it has nothing to do with the products themselves.  There were so many goodies for us to sample (on […]

It has been hot in New Mexico, and I mean Hades hot! The temperatures have been hitting the low 100′s and that is unusual for New Mexico this time of year.  The heat is getting to me and I have found myself being lazy in the kitchen, and with the laundry, and with the, oh […]

I recently had the opportunity to sample Gluten Free Cafe’s New Chicken Noodle Soup, courtesy of Mambo Sprouts.  I cannot even begin to tell you how excited I am about this!  There is nothing worse than having to make chicken noodle soup by scratch when you are sick! This is the first product by Gluten-Free […]

Synder's GF Pretzels0

I hit the jackpot yesterday on a trip to my local Whole Foods Market; I found the new Snyder’s Of Hanover Gluten-Free Pretzels! I wasn’t expecting to find them at Whole Foods and would have missed them altogether, had I not gone down the chip aisle (my local WFM has a dedicated Gluten-Free pseudo-aisle {it’s […]
