The Cast Iron Skillet

The cast iron skillet built at the end of the 19th century, next to the flat top stove. With the flat top stove being a popular fixture in a home with a skillet, it became a preference of many. Many of the baby boomer generation recall the scent of chicken fried at Gram maw's house on a Sunday afternoon. The same cast-iron cookers have been a sought-after commodity for antique collectors and dealers.

The basic manufacturing cycle has remained almost unchained for hundreds of years. As a consequence, the variations between antique and modern skillets are minor relative to other imported objects.

With the introduction of aluminum and stainless steel cookware in the twentieth century, it looked like the demise of the cast iron stove. Over the years, modern cooking techniques and non-stick surfaces have discovered that the cast iron skillet is still as strong as ever. With new generations becoming conscious of the excellent heating and cooking ability of the cast iron skillet, its reputation has rebounded. Next time you're preparing or purchasing a fresh skillet, consider the cast iron. It's rich in culture, and it might last forever.

Slow Cooker Salsa

What you need:

12 Roma tomatoes
1 white onion, chopped
4 whole cloves garlic
2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and sliced
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice

Cilantro for garnishing

Salt and ground black pepper to taste

Place a tiny slice in each of the tomatoes and add 1 clove of garlic. Place the onions in a crock pot and put the tomatoes on top of the onions. Apply the jalapeno peppers to the bowl and season with salt and pepper. Cover and simmer for up to 3 hours. Place the tomatoes in a bowl to cool when finished. Gently pull the skins (discard the seeds) and put the remainder of the ingredients in the crock pot in the blender. Blend to the ideal consistency. Garnish with cilantro before eating.

Martine's Bakery

Knock, Knock, who's there? It's a box of delicious bread and cookies from Martine's Bakery, from Tuckahoe, NY. Yes, that's what I got today, to taste, and review. Martine's, hand crafts all their products on premise, this keeps it fresh, and always in season. 

The bakery sent some of there popular babka, in three flavors, some rainbow cookies and some chocolate coconut macaroons. 

So dinner is over and the tasting, with the family begins! 

First up the chocolate coconut macaroon cookies. The big puffs of coconut macaroons has a chocolate bottom, and just looking at them makes you drool. The taste was amazing and the dark chocolate was the perfect compliment. It was sweet from the chocolate and decadent at the same time. Eating one makes you want to just continue on and finish the entire amount. You can taste the grated coconut through out the bites, and like all the other ingredients, its just the right amount. Martine's gives this cookie a signature taste, as well as a signature texture. 

Next up was Martine's rainbow cookies. Rainbow cookies are layers of almond cake, and jam sandwiched in-between layers. The cookies we're very moist, and the jam was outstanding. Rainbow cookies are very common in the Jewish deli as a dessert. But also popular in other cultures. Martine's hit the jackpot with this cookie. The top of the cookie is covered in chocolate with a white chocolate drizzled thru. When you bite into it you can taste the almond flavor and jam in every bite. It is a colorful cookie, that is truly perfect. 

Now for the babka, the first flavor is the hazelnut nutella. Before we taste, let me give you a little FYI, just what babka is. Babka is a dense cake, that actually looks like a loaf of bread. It has a sweet yeast dough, that is filled with fudgy chocolate, or cinnamon. When you look at it, it is a beautiful piece of art, just luring you in for a bite. 

The hazelnut nutella babka, was a cross between bread and a decadent cake. A truly addictive treat for after dinner dessert. You get a hint of cinnamon, and a perfect amount of the nutella. On top is a buttery cinnamon crumble. You can see the swirls and layers of the nutella through out the cake. It was very, very delicious. 

Next was another babka, cinnamon nut. This babka also had swirls, only this time it was with cinnamon and walnuts. And also included raisins. It’s a loaf that could be a ritual with your daily coffee or tea every day. It's a deliciously rich sweet dessert, and with a nice crumb topping as well. 

The last loaf to taste was the chocolate babka. This was sweet, buttery, and just out of this world goodness. A swirl that you pull apart and has delectable irresistible layers of yummy' ness. The chocolate babka is a dense cake, that looks like a loaf of bread. Inside the layers is a fudgy chocolate filling. It can be eaten cold, but I warmed it up, and had it with coffee. 

Any of these cakes, any of these cookies, from Martine's bakery, will fill you home and belly with delicious goodness. They make a great addition to your table to share with family or friends, but also great as a gift. 

If you would like more info on these products or the many more Martine's has to offer, visit them at their website. Just like Jerry Seinfeld, you find your favorite treat there.

Actually starting to eat healthy is no simple feat, particularly if you're not fond of eating fruit and vegetables, which will be the bulk of your new diet.

Choosing Cutlery

Because there are a number of patterns, colors and types, it's not easy to pick the best selection of cutlery these days.

While spoons, forks, and knives are utensils that allow you to eat, they have an essential role in every kitchen. Even like we can't exist without a toothbrush, a towel and shoes, we can't survive with out these utensils.

In this post, we're going to share with you a few suggestions that will help you pick the right collection of cutlery.

You will find cutlery made of various styles of material, such as bamboo, wood, stone, rubber, stainless steel and silver. As far as the appropriate content is associated, much of the cutlery is constructed of stainless steel and platinum.

Stainless steel is your perfect choice when it comes to prices. Silver, on the other side, is the most costly option. Stainless steel is the perfect combination for a conventional kitchen.

Stainless steels offer numerous benefits, such as high strength, corrosion resistant and the potential to endure extreme temperatures. Such content is also an excellent alternative for pharmacy plants, kitchens and hospitals.

You pick the best form and design depending on your personality and attitude. In addition, when it comes to the choice of cutlery, design and form are two essential considerations. However, picking the design you like does not mean that you will sacrifice the weight and consistency of the cutlery.

The cutlery you're going to pick shouldn't be too thin or too hard. Heavy utensils are cumbersome to hold and small equipment are of poor quality. Don't neglect the surface shine of the cutlery. Polished mirror is the perfect option if you like polished surfaces.

You will find cutlery in a number of colors today. Most people prefer the golden hue, but you can pick any hue you like.

Weight is another significant consideration when you buy a package. Usually, you select between a collection of 70 pieces and a collection of 4 pieces. It all comes down to the scale of the family. However, for most households, a package of 16 components is an optimal alternative.
Ideally, you would like to invest in a package that will withstand the test of time. So, how are you going to buy a good set?

When stated previously, much of today's cutlery sets are constructed of stainless steel, which ensures that they will bear the test of time. While picking the best stuff, you do need to take the correct precautions to improve the quality of your cutlery.

Mexican Dish's

Mexican food is very prominent. In addition, it's so famous that Mexican restaurants are almost everywhere in the United States. And no, Taco Bell doesn't qualify as one of those choices. 

Yeah, the Mexican food that Americans think of is a somewhat Americanized variant of Mexican cuisine, but it's also quite close to what they consume in Mexico. 

Taco's are one of the core components in Mexican cuisine. If you're enjoying a soft taco or a hard taco, all of them are very popular choices in Mexico or the United States. If you want more of an authentic Mexican flavor, then a corn tortilla is an alternative. Although this is something that scares many Americans off, if you're able to hunt down an authentic Mexican joint in the U.S., it's very possible that soft corn tortillas would be available. Personally, I feel that this is an excellent choice. 

Of course when it comes to side dishes there are the classic options of rice and refried beans. If you are an American then it's very possible that the only time you have ever eaten refried beans is when you are enjoying Mexican cuisine. And then the rice is just a little different when there is the Mexican touch on it. The side dishes are just different from other foods. These are sometimes the only two sides available at Mexican restaurants and that's quite alright.
Tamales is a very common Mexican dish. They can be eaten for breakfast, lunch or dinner. They may be either red or white. There is also a probability there is a deep brown mole sauce there fully transforms the tamale. You will enjoy tamales with a cup of atole, a short, thick beverage made of maize. 

The quesadilla is another specialty in Mexican cuisine. They're really famous, and even the restaurants that aren't Mexican serve them. They're so easy. Catch some bacon, some rice, some tomatoes, some onion and barbecue, and you're ready to go. You eat it, in the morning or in the evening. All it takes is some seasoning, which you can find, and some sour cream, and you're up and running for those delicious quesadillas. Which can be made in only a couple of minutes.
Odds are there's a Mexican recipe for everyone. Those were some of the more common ones, but you can dig deeper and find more unique choices.

BBQ Fruit

Wednesday, July 2, 2014

BBQ Fruit 

Fruit that is barbecued has the most delicious flavor. It is intense, and often cause's the fruit to taste even juicier. As you grill it, the juices start to bubble to the surface, this is making it extra sweet and delicious. Barbecued fruit at the end of your meal is even a great way end. It ends the same way it started around the barbecue.
However, not all fruit are suitable for barbecuing, and some fruit taste better then others, so its important to know your fruits.
Fresh fruits suitable for barbecuing –- a recommended serving portion of fruit is approximately, 5 to 7 oz per person.

Pome fruits: apples, quinces, pears (being fibrous, these can withstand longer cooking times); in wedges, slices or halves .
Stone fruits: nectarines, peaches, apricots, plums and cherries, etc. (wooden skewers, as in shish-kebabs, can prevent smaller pieces falling through the grate).

Melons (preferably ones just approaching ripeness), and watermelons are especially good cut into large "steak" slices.
Tropical fruits, such as pineapple (the number one choice), carambolas, papaya, mangoes and so forth. Some berries –- strawberries are very good, but be aware that most berries break down when barbecued.

Tinned fruits aside from tinned pineapple (drained and patted dry) are not really ideal, unless they're wrapped in foil. Citrus fruits are not always ideal; you're better off using citrus juice as a sauce option, although kumquats can grill well 

Although soft and delicate, peeled banana can barbecue well, if it is cut in small portions and threaded onto a skewer, or barbecued whole in the skin (this is often done with chocolate drops pressed through the skin into the flesh of the banana).
A baste – a baste made from spices such as cinnamon, nutmeg or allspice (to taste) is recommended. To make it, mix your choice of spices from the suggested ones in 2 or 3 tablespoons of melted butter or orange juice. Apply to the fruit as needed.

Amaretti di Saronno Cookie Review
Today I received a box of cookies from the Larzaroni family, from Saronno Italy. The cookies we're Amaretti di Saronno, a delicate delicious cookie. The recipe for these cookies go all the way back to 1718.

The cookies we're so good. Our family ate them alone, and with the evening coffee. These slow baked cookies had the most delicious flavor to them. I can just imagine how good they would be with ice cream.
These wonderful delights would be a great gift for someone, and for any occasion.

Cinco De Mayo Salsa

Friday, April 29, 2011
The best Cinco de Mayo Salsa Dip
Cinco de Mayo is always a great time just about any where. The best thing about it is all the great food everyone makes. I make this salsa every time to celebrate Cinco de Mayo, and it's always a big hit. It goes great with just about anything, but fish taco's is the real hit. I also serve it during the rest of the year with chicken, my family loves it. I hope your family will love it also.
When making this salsa I use fresh, ingredients. The first thing I look for is a nice ripe mango and a ripe papaya. You will then peel both, getting out any seeds of the papaya, then chop both of them. I then dice about a tablespoon of a jalapeno and and about one third cup of a red onion. With the jalapeno, you can decide if you want the seeds or not, depending on how hot you like your salsa. Then you chop a half cup of red pepper. I don't use a green pepper, because it's all about color for me with this dish.
After everything is peeled, seeded, chopped, and diced mix it all together. Then add your tequila two tablespoons, and one tablespoon lime juice. You will gently stir your mixture and chill. Before you serve, salt and pepper to taste.

Asher Chocolate

Ashers Chocolates Review

Another product I received today was from Asher's Chocolates. A company that is and has been family owned. The company is based in Philadelphia's historic Germantown section. In the beginning, they made maple syrup, jam and jellies. And soon got into creating wonderful tasting chocolates.

I received a box of their assorted chocolates. They tasted wonderful, so decadent. They we're the finest chocolates I have tasted in a long time. You can taste all the fine ingredients that we're used. The Carmel, the cherries, and the chocolate itself. The box was great also for gift giving. The assortment was 15oz of majestic milk and dark chocolate, and great flavor in every bite. The creamy milk chocolates, and the white chocolate we're like pure velvet in your mouth. And the nut clusters we're to die for. I have to say my favorite was the mango souffle.
If this assortment was this good, I can only imagine how wonderful their other products are.
Besides the chocolate you can buy fudge, chocolate covered pretzels, and so much more.
They have great assortments for Easter. So check them out at www.ashers.com . There you will find more products, and other great information.

Organic Oscar Pet Products Review
If you are a pet lover, as I am. Then you are going to love this Company and their product. "Organic Oscar" is the company, and they are the makers of Eco friendly, organic, shampoo's and conditioner's for pets. The company started in 2007, by Marie J.S, after moving to California. She was leading a healthy life style, and decided to have the same lifestyle for her dog. Thus Organic Oscar was born.
The products I received today to review, we're a shampoo and a conditioner. Organic Oscar's Aloe Vera shampoo for dogs is natural, biodegradable and is certified organic. Not only is the shampoo great for your dog, it's great for envioment. This shampoo works great for dog's with sensitive skin, due to the rich organic chamomile and organic Aloe Vera. Both of these ingredients create a soothing and calming effect. The conditioner is made with the intention of protecting your dog and the environment as well. It also helps to protect your pet's coat from the harsh environment, as well as leaving a smooth soft to the touch feel.
What better way was there to find out, then give the dog a bath. And the weather outside couldn't have been better to try these products out.
As you can see, he enjoyed it. The instruction's stated to leave the shampoo sit on the coat for a few minutes, and I had no problem doing that. My pet seemed to become very relaxed, and sat there in the tub all on his own. Following right after, I applied the conditioner as per the instructions. Following the drying process, Max's coat was the smoothest and shiniest I have seen in a long time.
All of the products from "Organic Oscar", can be used on your pet cat also. They are also great for pet's with certain skin problems. One double plus for these product's are, if you accidentally get the product into your pets eyes, it will not do any harm. Not only that, the package is 100 percent recyclable.
The website is very user friendly, and very informative. You can contact "Organic Oscar" at Pet Products Distribution4445 Eastgate Mall, Suite 200

Tropical Traditions Review

Wednesday, February 23, 2011

Tropical Traditions Product Review
When Brian Shilhavy found out about the benefits of Coconut Oil, he immediately asked his wife Marianitavy how to make the oil easily. She told him about the process that was used for years on her family's farm in the Phillaphines. They, than applied the process to their everyday cooking, and from there, their business was born. "Virgin Coconut Oil" which is now in the US market under the Tropical Traditions Gold Label Brand.

 So when I recieved this product today, I was excited to try it immediately for dinner. My husband is from Costa Rica and loves anything coconut. What better way then to incorporate the oil into my fried coconut shrimp dinner.

Oh! my when you open the jar you smell the fresh aroma of coconut, I knew this was going to be great.

FYI: Coconut oil is resistant to mutations of fatty acid chains even when you use it in high cooking temps, unlike most of your vegetable oils.

Dinner was a success, and it was great knowing I was using a product with so many healthy benefits. The product is outstanding.

Research shows that coconut oil boosts your bodies metabolism and raises your body temp. And also provides greater energy which may help lead to weight loss. The Tropical Traditions Gold Label Standard Virgin Coconut Oil, is a truly unrefined coconut oil, and they have the research to prove it.

The product can be ordered at their website http://www.tropicaltraditions.com/ along with so many other great products.

While there check out the great recipes they have.

Tortugas Rum Cake Feb. 2011

Monday, February 28, 2011

Tortugas Rum Company Review

Also today I received two rum cakes, one chocolate and one golden original. Tortugas is a family owned business with a long tradition of fine Caribbean rum cakes, and other gourmet products.

The Golden Rum Cake is their four generation of a old family recipe, the one that made it number one export of the Cayman Islands.

Then there is the Chocolate Rum cake, just what chocolate lovers will love.

The ingredients are the finest natural ingredients, which includes imported walnuts. These wonderful tasting Rum Cakes are baked daily. They use a special blend of five year old oak barreled aged Tortugas Gold Rum. Every cake is then hand glazed before getting vacuumed packed. This helps to ensure a six month life span, or indefinite life span if frozen or refrigerated.

These wonderful cake's make a great gift, especially around the Holiday's. When you order, you can order it to be gift boxed. Not only does the company sell Rum Cakes, they sell coffee, fudge and other gifts.

You can order online or find the products in specialty stores.

On face book, you can also check them out. And they are well deserving of hitting the like button.

On their website www.tortugarums.com you can also join their email marketing list to receive special offers.

What ever the occasion, Tortugas products make great eating and great gifts.

Just one taste and you will want to escape to the Cayman Islands.

Chocopeno Cookie Review Jan. 2011

This review was from 2011. My past blog momzblotterrantz was hacked, so I am going back and getting posts to share.

Chocopeno Cookie Review 

Tonite while having my night time coffee, I had my first cookie to review from Chocopeno Cookie, a Trenton NJ based bakery. They have the first Chocolate Chip cookie with Jalapenos. My husband and we're excited to try them, him loving Jalapenos and me loving Chocolate how could you go wrong. Well I must say they are out of this world. When you first bite into them you taste the Chocolate, than the Jalapeno kicks in. The mixture of sweet and spicy is very well balanced. The Jalapeno does not overwhelm the cookie at all. 

Mr. Michael Sylvester is the owner and the inventor for this cookie. His nickname "Sly", was also known as the "Pepper King". His recipe for the cookies are Jalapeno plants he grows that are from Mexico, and Belcolade Belgian Chocolate. The cookies also contain other organic ingredients such as wheat and soy. 

His bakery only uses the finest of ingredients, which are all natural. Making these not only grate tasting cookies, but all natural. The cookies would be a great snack for any Vegan. When making the cookies Flax is used instead of eggs.
The cookies come in a 2oz bag, which holds around seven cookies. The package also comes with Spanish/English nutrition information on the back. The size is so perfect for vending machines, pubs, or even on the counter of a specialty store.
After tasting these powerful little cookies I would highly recommend them, for tasting. Chocopeno also has promotional items on their website that can be purchased. So check them out!

Special Pizza City

Special Pizza City Ewing NJ

One of my favorite pizza places to eat is Special pizza city. The guy's are always friendly. My favorite is the chicken salad. No I don't mean the kind with mayo. It's a salad with what taste like roasted chicken on top. I always eat mine with a side of their wing sauce. The place is always busy, but plenty of seats. You can get a fountain drink or bottle drink from the cooler. It is counter service, they call your name when you found is ready. You can pay when you order, or pay before you leave. They have two TVs you can watch, one in the front of the restaurant, one in the back. The food is always fresh tasting, and very good. The portions are large, the price's very reasonable. They have a very wide variety of pizza to choose from. And a large array of other menu items, from salads to full meals. Another favorite is the honey mustard chicken pizza, delicious. Since we have a college close by this is a great place for them due to the reasonable price's. They also have a board with specials on it, that may even come with fries, and a soda. They also have delivery, you can call or fax your order in. You can also call or fax your order ahead of time to pick up. I would highly recommend this restaurant. Clean in appearance also.

Kings and Queens Product Review

This afternoon, I received several soaps and lip balm from a company called: kingsandqueensproducts. They we're very kind to send a bath ball, two lip balms, and two different types of soaps. 

The company feels that, value is never intended to be a compromise. They offer everything to you from the finest ingredients, fragrances and the most bright colors! All handmade with care and love. The company is very committed to being the only place you need, to look great, feel great, and keep your beautiful look safe! 

For them, they want you to be fully pleased with your shopping experience from order to delivery. Their first priority is their customers. 

Kings and Queens, provide a broad selection of key items for any skin   color and texture. From day to night and special events, they got you. All the products they sell are, produced with fresh organic ingredients, that are safe for you and the world.

For testing I will enlist all the girls in the family! 

First bath went to my youngest daughter. She used the ball of aromatherapy soap, "memories". She was very pleased with the way it foamed, and smelled on her skin. Afterwards she said how soft her skin felt, and had no left over residue. This is a soap made with coconut oil, grape seed oil, olive oil, and other all natural ingredients. The soap wrapped and unwrapped, had a very floral lavender scent to it. This lingers on the skin for some time. 

Next up my oldest daughter used the soap Frozen Sunset, white pear tea fragrance. The bar of soap was also made with natural oils, and other natural ingredients. My daughter enjoyed her shower, and said it did not leave her skin feeling dry, like others soaps. This scent is best described as, green tea and pear. The scent also was not overpowering, very delicate. The scent also lingered on her for a some time. She was very pleased with the soap. 

Now for my shower, I will be using the sweet dream soap, with a ylang-ylang scent. As with the other soaps, the bar was made with all natural ingredients with the scent of the ylang-ylang. A very beautiful fruity floral scent. You get a hint of jasmine, banana, and it is perfectly balanced. My skin was soft, and felt very clean. No residue left behind from the soap. 

For the lip balm, I enlisted my son in law, who often has very dry lips. The lip balm, from Kings and Queens Products, is made with beeswax, coconut oil, grape seed oil, flavoring and essential oils. The scent was that of vanilla, and went on smoothly, leaving his lips feeling refreshed. It stayed on for about a hour, and said his lips felt very soft. 

Kings and Queens offers a variety of different products. If your looking for great products that give you self care and help you relax, head over to www.kingsandqueensproducts.com

If its for you, or as a gift, you will be very pleased!

Knowing your Steak Cut

There are many criteria that should be considering while choosing your steak cut; one of them is the origin of the steak (e.g. Brazilian beef, Australian beef, or the so called "Local" beef here in UAE). Again, choosing a steak of a certain origin is subject to personal taste.

The type of steak cut is the main contributor to achieve a satisfactory experience wen grilling steak at home. Depending on the amount of fat and the way it is distributed, the steak cut will have a varying tenderness and special flavor. There are four common types of steak cut in any steakhouse menu.

Often referred as "Filet mignon", it is the most expansive cut of steak, for its mild taste and least amount of fat included. It is my favorite choice.

New York Strip
Often referred as "top sirloin". This cut is less tender compared to tenderloin, with some fat marbling throughout, giving it a good beefy flavor.

I consider it as the best choice for hardcore "Carnivore". It is sold with a T-shaped bone in, with meat on both sides. This cut has generous fat marbling throughout, making it super-tender and juicy, with beefy taste.

Often referred as "Entrecôte". This cut is basically a prime rib cut down into individual steaks. It has lots of fat marbling the meat and large pockets of fat interspersed throughout, making it extra juicy with flavorful beefy taste.

4 easy tips to boost your energy

 Even if you try to keep to a healthy diet and work out regularly, chances are there are times of day when your energy fades, or entire days when you just don't feel like you're on the right track. Between the constant demands on your time from work and family, it can be tough to stay energized all day long.

For expert advice on balanced nutrition to boost your energy levels, check out Kevin Curry's website, FitMenCook.com. Curry demonstrates that it's possible to create meals and snacks to help you achieve your health and wellness goals without breaking the bank or even being a trained chef. He recommends swapping out parts of dishes to boost their nutrition - like egg whites instead of whole eggs, or brown rice or quinoa in place of white rice. He strives to make veggies and proteins the star of the dish, while using ingredients that are both easy to find and simple to prepare.

Here are some easy tips for ways to boost your energy and add more pep to your step, throughout your day.

1. Protein-up your breakfast

You probably know you shouldn't skip breakfast, and many of us have to eat it on the go, but there's more you can do - your energy level will thank you later if you add more protein to the first meal of the day.

For quick and easy ways to amp up your protein, use Bob Evans Egg Whites, which are made from a single, clean ingredient: 100% liquid egg whites. They offer a high-quality, protein-filled breakfast solution with five grams of protein in every serving. Taking a few extra minutes in the morning to boost your protein intake can keep your whole day on track.

* Fix a quick omelet or scrambled eggs

* Add 1-2 servings of Bob Evans Egg Whites to your smoothie or protein shake

* Try this recipe for Strawberry Protein Pancakes, which your whole family can enjoy:

Strawberry Protein Pancakes
10 minutes prep time, serves 2


1 scoop vanilla protein powder
1/2 cup old fashioned oats
1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/3 cup Bob Evans Egg Whites
2 tablespoons Greek yogurt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 cup fresh or frozen strawberries, chopped


Blend everything except the strawberries together, until there are no remaining chunks. Set chopped strawberries aside.
Heat a nonstick pan to medium high (a large or pancake pan works best). Pour batter onto the pan in small circular shapes, then sprinkle chopped strawberries on each pancake.
When the pancakes start to bubble, flip and cook the other side.
Top with more strawberries, low-sugar maple syrup, Greek yogurt or whatever calorie-conscious topping you like!

2. Plan ahead

Pack protein-rich snacks to bring with you on the go, so you have healthy options handy to give you a quick pick-me-up throughout your day, especially when you feel your energy is fading. Small snacks throughout the day won't make you feel sleepy the way a large meal can.

* Nuts with little or no added salt or oil

* Low-fat cheese

* Meat sticks

* Greek yogurt without added sugar

3. Stay hydrated

Often energy levels can drop when you're dehydrated. Be proactive to keep yourself ready for anything.

* Bring along a reusable water bottle to sip throughout the day.

* Pack a protein smoothie or shake - don't forget the Bob Evans Egg Whites - for lunch to prevent the dreaded afternoon slump.

4. Keep active

Even when you've worked out in the morning, but especially on those days you miss the gym, find ways to add more activity throughout the day.

* When you're at a desk all day, take breaks to walk outside or around your office.

* Find somewhere to do a little stretching, squats and lunges to activate your muscles.

* At home, find projects around the house that keep you moving.

* Get down on the floor or out in the yard to play with the kids or pets.

BorequeRUMCakes Product Review

After our dinner tonight, the family had a real treat. Ana Oliveras, owner of BorequeRUMCakes, a Etsy shop, sent a rum cake for me to try. Ana, hand makes these cakes, all the way from Puerto Rico, with high quality Bacardi rum. So the family was excited for dessert tonight, to say the least. Rum cake is great for any dessert, Holiday, or gift, you can't go wrong. 

The Rum cake was a 4oz size, made with love, and Caribbean flavors. 

The Bacardi rum does not over power the cake, but when you do unseal it, you can smell the rum scent. Ana's, rum cake is very moist, and the rum flavor is just perfect. When you bite into it, its very soft, and then the Bacardi, rest on your palette for a short time, in a very tasteful and pleasant way. The balance is perfection. This little treasure Ana has created, is great alone, with ice cream, or any topping you may think of.

In my opinion, its one of the best rum cakes my family and I have tasted in a long time. 

Ana has a real gift of making these treasures. And if you are interested, head over to her Etsy shop. Her rum cakes make great desserts, but with Easter coming would make a great addition to a gift basket.

What ever you decide to do, keep the rum cake for you and your family, or give it as a gift, someone is going to be very happy.

Sweet Potato Snap Treat Review

Today when I opened the door, a box appeared on the porch. When I opened it, to my surprise, I did not expect to find so many pet snaps. Lisa Pullen, owner of Sweet Potato Snaps, sent over seven bags of her homemadepet snaps.

The thought came to her after she was looking for dog treats that were 100% healthy and might not only be perfect for her own pets, but also nice for all of her fuzzy family members. It is then that she discovered, safe pet snacks, that wouldn't bother her pet's belly. So, in 2018, is when she started producing 100% of all natural pet treats

She has managed to not only make these treats in Sweet Potato, but other flavors as well. From a simple sample, to a growing business, Lisa Pullen has pulled the task at hand off. Each snap snack comes in a resalable bag, to keep the freshness in after you open it. Also on the label is the amount, of each sweet potato snap to give your dog according to size. 

In every bag, the snap treats are sliced long ways, so all your furry little babies can eat and enjoy their new snack, and it's gone soon after you hand it to them. The flavors that I got from Lisa, are the original sweet potato flavor, some cranberry flavor, a apple and a blueberry. 

Now these Sweet Potato snaps are not just for dogs, you can give them to horse's, rabbit's, and furry little pet you have. They are 100 percent all natural sweet potato's, with no additives, no antioxidants, gluten free, and best of all no fillers or artificial ingredients. You can get your sweet potato pet snacks in a five or ten oz bag.

All the treat snaps are made with sweet potato's, plus other fruit added like the cranberries, apple and the blueberry Lisa sent me. Also Lisa, grows her own ingredients where she lives in Wisconsin.

So what better way, then to let my own Doberman, Toretto, give me his opinion. First up, a sweet potato flavor, and don't worry each piece is small, he has a lot to taste!

So my boy, Toretto, loved each flavor! And as I sit here typing, he is sitting right by me wanting more.

If you are interested in giving your furry loved one a great treat, head over to www.sweetpotatosnaps.com. Your pet will thank you after!
