No more dirty dishes!

COMMENTS



I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Cascade. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank you for participating.




In our house we do the dishes at least once a day. I really can not stand it when I have rinsed my dishes, put them in the dish washer and they still come out with spots or just not clean. I end up having to wash by hand, which is time consuming, or just rerunning the dishwasher. I hate having to rerun the dishwasher because then I have to use more of whatever detergent I used. Dishwasher packs or detergent can be pricey. 
I got to try out Cascade Platinum dishwasher pacs. These pacs have an advanced triple action recipe that is meant to leave your dishes virtually sopt-free. They are also supposed to help prevent build-up of hard-water film on the walls of your dishwasher. Seeing this made me really want to try them out. These pacs are also supposed to eliminate any pre washing you usually do to your dishes. This really excited me because I am so busy I hate having to take up time pre washing. THe platinum pacs are Cascade's best dishwasher pacs.
Cascade has partnered with Top Chef judge Gail Simmons to discuss why the presentation of food is just as important as the preparation of it. Cascade has helped make my meals look better by making my dishes sparkle. I am loving having clean dishes the first time around. It sure has saved me a lot of time. Check out the video below for some plating tips:


Cascade is having a contest that ends on June 30. To enter the My Platinum Instagram contest go to My Platinum contest and enter your photo. I apologize for not giving you much notice about this. It does end in three days. This weeks them for pictures is my platinum table. They want you to show you tablescape for your most special occasions. Good luck to any that enters or that has entered!

It has been so hot out that I was so happy to get to try some organic ice cream. Julie's Organic ice cream is made from USDA organic certified cows. I was sent some coupons to try out their product. I picked up some Juliette ice cream sandwiches, some lemon yogurt sandwich cookies, and strawberry yogurt bars. 





My favorite were the yogurt items. I loved the lemon yogurt cookie sandwiches. All of the products tasted great and were easy to find in my local stores. The Juliette sandwiches were mini square shaped ice cream sandwiches. These were lower in sugar and calories. The yogurt sandwiches were circular and came in a circle tube. I thought it was really innovative packaging. The strawberry yogurt bars were the size of your usual ice cream bar on a stick. If you are going organic I would recommend trying this brand of ice cream. They sell a lot more than what I was able to try. To look at other products and for more information please go to Julie's Organic online.

Perky Jerky is an all natural premium jerky. It is marinated in guarna which is a little berry that is often found in energy drinks. This berry is what makes perky jerky perky. It gives you energy when you need it. I was so happy to get to try it out. I got to try beef and turkey jerky.






Perky Jerky has a different texture than other jerky and is much easier to chew than other jerky. This jerky has a soft smooth texture and is very easy to bite. It is thicker than other jerky too. When you add in the fact that it gives you energy it makes this jerky awesome! Below is a picture to show the texture and what it looks like.
Some energy foods have bad after taste or just taste weird but perky jerky tastes great. It is a great pick me up snack, way to start your day, or post or pre work out snack. Definitely the best energy jerky I have had. If you would like to learn more about this product please go to Perky Jerky online.


Here is something awesome, I get to do a giveaway and one person will win a one ounce caddy or turkey or beef perky jerky! All you have to do is enter below. Good luck everyone!!

Sneaky Pete's makes oat beverages in a variety of flavors. I got to try mango, apple, raspberry, peach, and grape. My favorite was the peach. I thought that these would taste weird because of their name but they were very tasty. There was not taste of oat like I thought there would be. You really only taste the fruit. They are low in sugar as well which makes them better for me. 

These drinks have 3 grams of oat fiber, are all natural, only six ingredients in a bottle, and only 40 calories. They make a good drink with breakfast or just a drink throughout the day. I really enjoyed them and will be buying more. If you would like to learn more please visit Sneaky Pete's Beverage online

Red Jacket Orchards Juice Review

**Disclaimer: I did not receive monetary compensation for this review. I was provided complimentary product to facilitate my review. These are my opinions only and yours may differ.**



Red Jacket Orchards  makes all natural juices. The company has their own farm and grows the fruits that their juices are made from. I think this is what give them the great taste they have. I was given the chance to try  Joe's summer blend, strawberry apple, fuji apple, raspberry apple, blackcurrant apple, and grape apple juices. 




I usually end up having a favorite but this time I loved them all. They were all very flavorful and not too sweet for me. I love how they actually taste like the fruit they are supposed to taste like and not watered down. You can tell that the company takes pride in what they do by the taste of the juices. These are great for adults and kids too. Christine enjoyed them more than I thought she would. She usually does not like fruit juices. If you would like to find out more about these please visit Red Jacket Orchards.

Skinny Pop is an all natural good for you popcorn. We love to snack on popcorn in our house but most popcorn's have added ingredients that make it bad for you. Skinny Pop does not have these bad for you ingredients. It is simply lightly salted popcorn. The best part is that it only has 39 calories per cup. It is also cholesterol and trans fat free.



Skinny pop is some of the yummiest healthy popcorn I have ever had. We have been snacking on it all the time since I received it. If your family loves popcorn but feels guilty eating it, then you need to try this. To learn more about it please go to Skinny Pop online

Cocomo Joe Foods Review

**Disclaimer: I did not receive monetary compensation for this review. I was provided complimentary product to facilitate my review. These are my opinions only and yours may differ.**



Cocomo Joe Foods strive to make great tasting high quality organic foods. In my opinion they have made the best caramel corn ever! Their cocomo corn has a hint of coconut plus the usual caramel you get in caramel corn. I think the coconut makes it taste heavenly. I would live off of this if I had a lifetime supply it is that good. They also make joebars and granola that I got to try as well. 




I got to try the ginger apple and the salty chocolate granola. The granola is great alone or in a bowl with milk. We ate it in the morning for breakfast and it would keep me full until lunch time. The salty chocolate was my favorite. It has figs and chocolate in it. The figs added a nice chewy texture to it that I liked a lot. The ginger apple was not my cup of tea but only because I am not a huge ginger fan.



I was also sent a variety of joebars. I love these and they made great snacks. They came in flavors like cocoa, mango, fig, coffee, green, and cranberry. All of the bars are coconut with the fruit or green added to it. I like the flavor of all of them and did not have a favorite because they were so good. These bars are chewy bars and I liked that about them. 
They also sent me a couple babybars. These are made for kids and Christine ate them up. She liked to chew on them since she is teething she liked them a lot. The babybars are just coconut flavored. If you would like to learn more about the company and its products please go to Cocomo Joe Foods online.

Snikiddy was founded in 2006 by Mary Schulman and her mom. They decided that they would make healthier snacks for families. The company makes baked fries, puffs, and eat your vegetables chips. All of the products come in a variety of flavors. 


In my area I was only able to find the eat your vegetables chips. I got the jalapeno ranch and the sea salt flavors. We loved these so much that they did not last long in out house. They tasted like baked chips and my favorite were the jalapeno ranch. They were a little spicy but not too bad for me. 


The chips are uniquely shaped triangles. They were crispy and made very good afternoon snacks. They were filling and you are not overwhelmed by the flavors. The best part about these snacks was that Christine liked them too! I am definitely getting more for us this week. If you would like to find out where to purchase them or more information please visit Snikiddy website.

Caveman Fuel Paleo Beef Jerky Review

**Disclaimer: I did not receive monetary compensation for this review. I was provided complimentary product to facilitate my review. These are my opinions only and yours may differ.**








Caveman Fuel Paleo beef jerky is made from  100% grass-fed cows and is all natural. This beef jerky is Paleo diet safe. I have never tried any jerky like this before and I will admit that when I first tried it I noticed that it tasted different than other beef jerky but not in a bad way. The only way I can describe the taste is that it is more natural and really good. There are no artificial ingredients in it and I think that really makes a difference taste wise.

The Paleo diet is a diet that goes back to the paleolithic way of life. Hunters and gatherers ate more natural foods that they would have to kill and gather themselves. If you would like to learn more about this diet you can go to Paleo diet. I have heard good things about this diet but have not tried it myself. If you would like to order some of the jerky or find out more about it please visit Caveman Fuel.

Hubert's Lemonade has been around since 1935. They are all natural juices. They come in seven refreshing flavors. These include: honey lemonade, raspberry lemonade, strawberry lemonade, mango lemonade, original lemonade, cherry limeade, and limeade. I got the chance to try strawberry lemonade and cherry limeade.



The strawberry lemonade was sweet more than tart and tasted very yummy. My favorite though was the cherry limeade. I am a huge limeade fan and this was the best one I have ever had. It was equally sweet and tart. Sometimes limeades can be too tart or sour but not this one. When I was done with these two I had to go buy a four pack of the cherry limeade. These are some of the best drinks I have had in  along time. If you want to find out more or where to purchase them please go to Hubert's Lemonade.

I am lucky enough to get to do a giveaway for two coupons for free Hubert's Lemonade. All you have to do is enter below now.

Heaven is For Real For Little Ones Review/Giveaway (Ends 6/10/13)

COMMENT





I have read the adult version of Heaven is for Real so when I saw I had the chance to get the children's version I knew I wanted it. The little ones version is written more how Colton, the main character, would write it. It is a board book which is great for Christine. It is Colton telling his story of how he went to Heaven for a little while when he was really sick. He describes what Heaven was like to him and how it looked. He also talks about how God and Jesus love us a lot. He reiterates that fact a lot in the book and how Jesus dies for us to live. This is a great book to read to your children. We are really enjoying it. I really like the way he describes his Heavenly adventure.  Now to the awesome part, you can enter below to win your own copy of this great book.

 Good luck!!

gfreely Review

Gfreely is a company that does subscription boxes. Their boxes contain products that are gluten free. When I got my box to review I was so happy with what I had gotten.




My favorite item was the pizza kit. I had never had gluten free pizza crust. It was easy to make and tasted great too. There were also flavored pumpkin seeds, some awesome pretzel sticks and a few other great snacks in there. Everything tasted good and you could not tell that the snacks were gluten free. Gfreely has very good priced monthly boxes you can check them out here: Gfreely. You can even purchase products separately that you enjoyed from the boxes. Their website even offers great gluten free recipes for you to try. I definitely recommend this for anyone who is living gluten free.

True Natural Sunscreen Review

COMMENTS



When I was given the opportunity to try True Natural Sunscreen I was excited. I have never tried a natural sunscreen and have always stuck to the traditional market brands. We got the chance to try it out for the first time on mothers day. We went to a zoo and used it on Christine and myself. 
It only took a little bit to get her covered up and we only used one layer. It does not have a scent and did not leave your skin feeling oily like some others do. Christine did not get burned and it worked really well. I didn't get burned either and really liked how well it stayed on my skin even with sweat. 
This sunscreen is 100% natural, gluten free, nano-particle free, and fragrance free. Other sunscreens contain fragrances and other things that could cause a reaction. Christine has really sensitive skin and did not break out from this sunscreen. I loved it and we will be using it all summer. If you would like to find out more please go to True Natural.

My Princess Bible Purse Review

COMMENTS




My Princess Bible Purse is a little book shaped like a purse. It teaches children about God's gifts to us. It teaches kids to be kind, loving, and patient because that is what God wants us to do and how he wants us to act. It has great illustrations to keep the little ones into it. 

Christine really likes the book and loves that it has a handle to carry around. She is reading it upside down in the pics below but don't tell her that. She would get mad at me when I tried to fix it. She likes when i read it to her and loves to look at the pictures. This book is a great book to have for her.
