All opinions expressed are those of the reviewer and honest in nature. I don't know about you, but it's hard for me to follow food trends and fads. I have trouble determining what is truth and what is hype. It seems like every day there's some new thing that helps you lose weight or have better skin. This combination of stuff helps your memory (I could actually use that) or this smoothie makes your hair grow faster. I don't eat the best, my family eats packaged foods, full of garbage and who knows what else. It's something that we really need to work on. Bottom line, the less processed or messed with, the better a food is. Unfortunately, generally this means the food tastes gross. Our tastebuds are so used to sugary artificial flavors that they revolt at actual food. Enter Taste of Nature organic food bars. These bars are certifiably … [Read more...]

Butterball Cookbook Plus App Review

Butterball 2014

The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a gift card/money/coupon and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free. All opinions expressed are those of the reviewer and honest in nature. If I say Butterball, what do you think of? I think of a big, juicy turkey baking away making my kitchen smell amazing. But there are also products such as turkey bacon, turkey burgers, turkey sausage and much more! I recently fried up some Butterball turkey bacon. Richard and Jake enjoyed it on sandwiches. Jake and I also shared some Butterball Wisconsin Cheddar Sausage. I heated it thoroughly and popped mine in some tortillas, it was quite tasty! Next time, I'll be using the app to find some awesome recipes. The Butterball Cookbook Plus app helps you find creative and delicious ways to use Butterball products. Right now the app is free. I don't know about you, but I'm a big fan of free stuff. The app includes 250 tasty turkey recipes, it's so much more than that. It's … [Read more...]

Son of the Sun and Wizard Lizard App Review

SS1

The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a gift card/money/coupon and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free.  All opinions expressed are solely those of the reviewer based upon personal experience with the product. There's an app for that. A familiar phrase to just about everybody. Whether you need directions, want to read a book, play a game or anything in between you can find an app to suit you. I love playing games myself, especially tower defense varieties. I also use Instagram and Snap Chat occasionally. Jake likes to play games such as Flappy Bird or the jungle runner type games, but mostly he uses the Facebook app on his iPod. While I do think that kids are exposed to more technology than I was growing up or even Jake, there are a lot of great fun and educational apps that are a fantastic experience for kids. Son of the Sun and Wizard Lizard by Kidappers is one of those special apps that I would recommend to adults to share with their … [Read more...]

Happy Birthday Mo and Kai!

Mo 2013

My Mo and Kai were born a year ago today, on my porch! It has been a rough week with Mo. Last Wednesday he just seemed off, walking almost drunkenly. The next day he wasn't much better. I thought it might be earmites and gave him treatment. He seemed to get worse. He wasn't walking straight and seemed to be having trouble with his balance. Richard took him to the vet Friday. They said it was probably the earmite treatment, though I explained the symptoms started prior to that. The vet did blood work, poor Mo had a seizure while they were drawing his blood! They said he went rigid and his back legs started kicking. I think he might have had a small seizure Thursday night, though I didn't know that's what it was. I was checking his gums and his back leg started scratching toward his ear and chin. Then it just scratched almost violently like he couldn't control it. He didn't seem rigid and it was just that leg, but the vet said it might have been a seizure. I kept him in the … [Read more...]
