Who loves monkey bread?




Well we love it, what is monkey bread? Well it is defined as: (from epicurious) A sweet yeast bread formed by arranging small clumps of dough (which are usually dipped in melted butter) in 3 or 4 overlapping layers in a pan. The pan can be round, oblong or tube-shape. After baking, the clumps cling together to form a solid loaf. Monkey bread can be sweet (flavored with raisins, nuts, cinnamon and sugar) or savory (often made with grated cheese).

We just call it delicious.  I came across a recipe for Money Bread Muffins, wow! The worst part about monkey bread it, it is a bit messy and can be hard to eat (but the mess is always worth it, they are so good!) But with muffins we could cut down on the mess and just eat small portions, what a great idea! The recipe was fun to make, my daughter had fun helping me shape the balls from the dough and dip them in the mixture.

I found this great recipe while searching online I found the recipe here http://goddessofbaking.blogspot.com/2011/08/monkey-bread-muffins.html

Monkey Bread Muffins - Adapted from The Kitchenarian
Yield: 10 Muffins
Ingredients:
1 Teaspoons Cinnamon
1/4 Cup Sugar
1 (16 ounce) Can Refrigerated Biscuit Dough, 8 big biscuits, (I used Pillsbury regular biscuits)
1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
3 Tablespoons Butter, Unsalted
1 Teaspoons Water
1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla
1/2 Teaspoon Cinnamon

Directions:
  1. Preheat the oven to 375. Grease muffin cups of a standard muffin pan or fill with paper liners. 
  2. Mix the white sugar and cinnamon together in a small bowl and set aside. 
  3. Cut each biscuit into quarters. Roll each piece in the cinnamon sugar and place three in each muffin cup. Continue until all 10 cups are full. Scatter the remaining dough pieces in the muffin pans. You will not have the same number of biscuit pieces in each muffin. 
  4. In a saucepan, melt the brown sugar, butter and water until bubbly.  Add the vanilla and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon.  Make sure the sugar has melted and the consistency is smooth. 
  5. Spoon the brown sugar sauce over each muffin cup. I put about 1 teaspoon of sauce on each muffin. I reserved a small amount of this sauce to drizzle over the muffins when they came out of the oven. 
  6. Bake for 10 to 2 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before taking out of muffin pan. They will stay together better this way.
  7. Spoon more sauce on the muffins while still hot.  
  8. Enjoy hot, or microwave the muffin for 10 seconds to reheat!
We loved the muffins they were so very easy to make, and they were a great treat. They taste just like you would get on the boardwalk in jersey. But you do not have to travel, and they are much cheaper to make them yourself. Why not try it, we are glad we did!

About Oogie's Gourmet Popcorn (from the website)

Here at Oogie's, we are popcorn lovers! It started as a fun experiment in our kitchen and sparked a natural popcorn revolution.

We know the best tasting popcorn starts with the perfect kernel so we know where our corn comes from and who grows it. Our non-GMO corn is a proprietary hybrid - the only place you'll find it is in a bag of Oogie's. Besides being outstanding in their field, our farmers make sure we have the highest quality kernels to meet our rigorous standards.

Next step is using the finest all-natural ingredients, without any artificial flavors or colors, ever. And popping in 100% percent corn oil ensures we create a delicious treat that has no cholesterol, no trans-fat, and is entirely gluten-free.

Did we mention we kettle pop in small batches, the old fashioned way, to ensure your popcorn experience will be Oogieriffic. Too corny? That's ok, our flavor makes up for it.
Join the fun. We'll turn you popcorn lovers into gourmet popcorn aficionados one kernel at a time.


My Review:


Our family loves popcorn, we snack on it as much as we can, it one of our favorite treats. Oogies is unlike any other popcorn we have tried, this is truly gourmet popcorn. There is so much more offered by Oogie's popcorn then just buttered popcorn, we were able to try each of the fantastic flavors Oogies offers. 

My daughter's favorite was the White Cheddar, this had a strong tasty flavor of cheddar, Movie Lovers this to me tasted just like the popcorn at the theater (but much less expensive!) the real butter flavor shone through, very tasty. Cracked Pepper and Asiago, this was just peppery enough and the asiago flavor was just cheesy enough. Hatch Chili Con Queso, this was my husband's favorite it has a salty and slightly spicy flavor.  

Sun-Dried Tomato and Parmesan, this tasted a bit like pizza to be it was flavorful and delicious.  Spicy Chipolte and Lime, this had a nice tang the lime flavor cut down on the spiciness and the flavors worked well together. Smoked Gouda now this was my favorite, gouda is my favorite cheese, and the flavor works great with popcorn. Kettle Corn, this was also a family favorite, we all loved the sweet and salty taste; this reminded us of the popcorn we would get a local fairs, right from the copper kettles Oogies was just as good. 




Each of the Oogies popcorn flavors are seasoned well, but are not strong and over powerful. So if you are looking for a great snack, after school treat or if you want a break from normal boring popcorn, please give Oogies popcorn a try, you will be glad you did.  Would you like to try Oogies too?

  • Perfect mini-games you’ve unlocked in Challenge Mode



My Review:

My daughter loves her DS it comes everywhere we go. But she’s six and has the attention span of a gnat, so to keep her occupied we try to find games that are challenging and not just baby walk through games. She had the chance to try Camping Mama  from the makers of one of her favorite games Cooking Mama. 

Cooking Mama has kept her occupied for hours on end, she’s still trying to master all of her recipes she’s getting better but there still is a lot of playability of that game. So when she was given the chance to play Camping Mama I knew right away this is a game that will pique her interest and keep her occupied. Much like Cooking Mama, Camping Mama is a multi-level game that has 100 mini games on top of the levels; it’s a deep and complex game. 

 It’s a stylus based game which is just like Cooking Mama so my daughter has had no problem playing the game play is simple but not so simple that your kid will tear though it in a night. I love the fact that she has to use her brain to figure things out and it’s also building her hand eye coordination because she’s using the stylus and reading what she has to do next.

They say video games rot the mind, I don’t necessarily agree with this anything in moderation is good including video games. Games like Camping Mama challenge kids, it makes them think, it makes them read and helps build dexterity. Plus being a city girl she might not have many opportunities to camp so this might be as close as she gets to braving the great outdoors!


Buy it:

You can purchase Camping Mama in stores or online.

Kids will have a blast with a Plasmacar!

What is a Plasmacar? Well it is a great  product that I am happy to share some info about this great "car" with you. The Plasma car is one of the world's best selling childrens ride on toys. There are no batteries needed, and there are no petals used. How can this car move without petals you ask? Well, this car runs on kid power! .  As the rider turns the wheel back and forth the PlasmaCar harnesses the natural forces of inertia, centrifugal force and friction. And off they go hitting top speeds of 6 miles per hour. Although my daughter did not go that fast on the rough concrete, we would love to try it on a smooth surface and really go!  Did I mention the Plasmacar is quiet as well. That is priceless to me!
Our daughter is amazing, she can walk around a Disney park all day and never seem to get tired. She was boundless energy, it’s sickening really. We’re dragging and she’s bouncing around like Tigger on a pixie stick high. Most kid’s seem to have energy to burn and what better way to burn in than with a Plasma Car? It’s the vehicle that is literally kid powered; they have to work to get the car to move!
A week or so ago my daughter was sent home with her first fund raiser for her school, it’s the kind of fund raiser that if you sell X amount of items you get a prize. One of the prizes listed is a Plasma Car type knock off called called a twisty car..., she saw it and kept saying I want that!! I want that!! Little did she know she was going to get one without having to sell over $500.00 worth of bland food. When I told her she was going to get a Plasma Car she got excited and instantly started pestering us when it was coming.
Eventually it arrived and even my non Al Borland type husband was able to put it together, within minutes our daughter was tearing up the sidewalk on her Plasma Car making our neighbor’s laugh.

She really was having a great time, she was also getting a good workout, the side to side motion needed to make the car move made her work up a good sweat and she was tired after 40 minutes or so of back and forth. She slept really well that night, and we were happy to have something for her to do that’s not her Wii or DS, it makes kids who are dormant not dormant and forces them to work a little for their fun. It’s a great way to get your kids out of the house and outside! And if you other bigger older kid wants to try it let him, it supports up to 220 pounds so it can handle quite a bit.

Have you purchased your Holiday cards? Now is a great time!




Why not get your cards early and beat the rush of the holiday season, buying cards now will give you time to relax later, Ok maybe not relax but it will give you more time to shop  for gifts.

I was looking online for Christmas cards and I came across the Tiny Prints site, and wow what a selection of awesome holiday cards!


I have never made a holiday card with a photo before, I have pretty much gone with boxed cards. I sure have been missing out, the photo cards are so much more personal and pretty than the boring boxed cards I have been using. 



On the Tiny Prints site the card that really caught my eye was the Candy Cane Square - Winter berry card. It is a classic, and pretty design this card would look great with a family photo, or a photo of my daughter, I just don't know what I would pick. Either would look wonderful! 

For the holidays, as the cards come in the mail my daughter gets to open them (she loves to get mail). We read them together and then tape the card to our mantel for everyone to see. I love how the cards are decorations themselves, and everyone can see the lovely cards we received.

Do you have any traditions when it comes to Christmas/holiday cards? I would love to know what others do :)

Be sure to check out Tinyprints.com for a great selection of cards that the recipients will keep and treasure!

I am participating in a blogging campaign and will receive complimentary cards for participating.

Tanner’s Tasty Paste Review (and a giveaway)




 About Tanner's Tasty Paste (from the website)

Dr. Janelle Holden's love of dentistry began when she was just a little girl, dreaming of becoming a dentist one day.

Dr. Holden has found that when a child has an enjoyable, rewarding experience at their first dental visit, their entire dental life is positively affected. With that in mind, her goal is to provide a caring, fun environment which reflects her core philosophy to promote cavity prevention and help children to enjoy cavity free lives.
By working with children everyday, Dr. Holden has learned which flavors children respond to best when using toothpastes and prophy pastes.

This understanding of children's favorite flavors has lead to the development of the Tanner's Tasty Paste line of toothpastes for children. If children enjoy the flavors of their toothpastes, it is likely they'll brush better and more often. And, if they brush better and more often, they'll have fewer cavities!
We hope that you and your family enjoy all of the Tanner's Tasty Paste toothpastes and products.

Flavors Available:

Tanner's Tasty Paste- Banilla Bling

Tanner's Tasty Paste- Cha Cha Chocolate
Tanner's Tasty Paste- Baby Bling


 My Review:

I’m cheap, I’ll admit it. Heck I wear it like a badge of honor! When we’re at Target and they’re having 90% off of whatever holiday just passed I get excited. Well last Halloween I stocked up on cheap toothpaste for my daughter, it was Colgate watermelon flavored toothpaste. She’s been brushing with this flavor for over a year now and she’s sick of it. So much so that she tells me “I hate this toothpaste!” It is tough to get a kid to brush their teeth; it is harder to do it when they loathe the toothpaste they have to use. 

I had the chance to try toothpaste from Tanner’s Tasty Paste (http://www.tannerstastypaste.com/default.asp) which is not your ordinary toothpaste! Tired of mint? Try Cha Cha Chocolate. Are you sick of watermelon? Go for the Banilla Bling. It’ll make your kids beg you to let them go brush their teeth! I’m serious, I didn’t tell my daughter about the change of her toothpaste and when she brushed with the Cha Cha Chocolate she had this look of utter amazement on her face. I could read her expression, chocolate toothpaste? She was blown away, so much so after she finished she asked if she could brush them again! We went from an absolute struggle to get her to brush to her doing it willingly and wanting to do it often.
My husband has taken a shine to the Banilla Bling which is vanilla flavored, cinnamon is love number one vanilla is 1A. It is fun to have something other than mint, brushing your teeth doesn’t have to be bland anymore! Each tube is $6.00 and they even have a paste that is safe for babies which is called Baby Bling. It’s like brushing your teeth with a tasty pasty dessert.

My Review:
I have a smelly washer. I admit it. It has this funky odor, that I do not know where it came from. My washing machine is not that old, and I can't for the life of me find out why it smells!  I was lucky enough to be able to try Smelly Washer to try to get rid of the stale odor coming from the washer. I have used so many great smelling laundry detergents in the past, why do they not make the washer smell like the detergent? Well I was a bit skeptical at first, will this really work? 

 I followed the directions by adding one capful into an empty washer filled it with hot water and let the Smelly Washer soak. In a few hours I went back to check out the washer, I could tell the difference right away. There was no longer this stale old odor, it was replaced with a pleasant smell. I was very impressed! It worked! I do not know how long this good smelling washer will last, but the full size bottle is good for up to 24 treatments, it is about a 1 year supply. 
The cost is only $16.99 that is a great deal to have a cleaner washer, a cleaner washer = cleaner clothes. 

Why spend $$ on laundry detergents and forget about your washer? A clean washer, leads to cleaner clothes. Now after using Smelly Washer I can now say I HAD a smelly washer. My washer is smelly no more!

Our products are innovative, functional, clever, affordable, and fun!

My Review:

Evriholder, has so many cool and different products, I was lucky enough to be able to review of few of their many items, I picked:
The Wonder bread sealer & de-cruster
Campbell's soup can- tainer
Squeeze it tooth paste 
Kellogg's Pop tart container

I have never had any items like the above items. But they are all such great ideas, why haven't I picked up some of these items in the past, they are all great. My favorite item by far is the Squeeze it toothpaste, this little wonder really flattens out the tooth paste tube, and you will not waste a drop of toothpaste, with this wonder, the package comes with two tooth paste squeezers, what a great deal. I have been wasting so much toothpaste all these years, and now I will get to use the entire contests of the toothpaste tube with no waste. 

The Campbell's soup can- tainer will make packing lunches in the winter easier for me, it will add a new lunch option.. soup! My daughter is a big fan of soup and it will be a nice break for her to be able to have soup for lunch. I remember when I was younger I had a thermos in my lunch kit and I would bring soup all the time. The Campbell's soup can- tainer reminds me so much of my well loved container, I just hope my daughter loves the warm soup for lunch like I did.

The Kellogg's Pop tart container is great for the car, when we go on long car drives, the first thing we hear is my daughter saying I'm Hungry! And we can't just stop at a fast food place all the time, I keep the pop tart container filled with a whole wheat pop tart, and this fills my daughter and she becomes a happy traveler. Why do you need a container you ask? Well the container keeps the pop tart from getting broken apart, and the container makes clean up easier, my daughter is able to keep the crumbles in the container, not the car!

Another favorite of my family is The Wonder bread sealer & de-cruster. My daughter will simply not eat crusts. She is a great eater and will try just about any type of food. But she will not eat crusts. And with this little wonder we do not have to buy those crust less sandwiches anymore we can save money and make our own. The de-cruster is easy to use, and in a few easy steps I can have a crust less sandwich for my daughters lunch. Needless to say my daughter is a big fan!






Don't mind my messy sandwich, I added too much jelly! My daughter loves jelly.

Evrilholder has such a great array of items, please check them out at 
http://www.evriholder.com/ Remember these are such cute stocking stuffers, and the holidays are right around the corner!

Mrs. Renfro's Gourmet Salsa Review (And a Giveaway)


Do you love salsa? Well we sure do, it is good on so many things, from chips to dips, to the top of a hamburger, fish tacos and so so much more!

About Mrs. Renfro's (from the website)

For 71 years, our family's been bringing you delicious and innovative products at affordable prices. From our Green and Habanero Salsas to our Peach and Black Bean Salsa, we're proud to offer the finest flavors and authentic tastes of the Southwest.

My Review:

We love salsa in our house. Salsa is the greatest condiment (in my opinion) it can go with so so many things, from eggs to hamburgers, I can put salsa on just about any savory food. I even marinate with salsa, and brush it on bbq items.  I was lucky enough to be able to try some salsas from Mrs. Renfro's I picked, Peach Salsa, Tequila Salsa, Mexican Mild Sauce, and Green Pickles.  

The peach salsa made a great marinade I was able to make a peach chicken and rice, it was very tasty.
My daughter loved the sweetness of the peach sauce, and it went very well with chicken. My husband's favorite sauce was the tequila salsa, it went great with tortilla chips it had a nice tang, but was not spicy I loved this sauce too.

I like salsas with flavor, and not with a strong spice, how can you taste the food if you are in pain from the heat? But if you like the heat Mrs. Renfros has a ghost pepper salsa, wow! Now that must be scary hot! I am a bit of a wuss with the spicy stuff, I would not be brave enough to try it!  The Mexican mild sauce was a great topper to quesadillas, and the sauce was mild and flavorful.

The green pickles were unique, I am looking forward to having them on fish tacos I think they would really lend a good taste to the tacos. Did I mention that the full size salsas are $3.25 each that is an amazingly low price, for a full size jar!

 I would recommend Mrs. Renfros salsa, it is unique, and flavorful and inexpensive.  The scary all kinds of salsa from sweet to super Hot. What more could you ask for?
