Great Tender Filet Steaks Review & Giveaway

My package came free of charge for an honest review. The package I got from The Tender Filet contained 2 of each of the following: Filet Mignons, NY Strip, T-Bone steak, Sirloin steak , Prime Rib slices, America's Cut Pork Chop, and 4 Sirloin Burgers. Also included special butters. These steaks were AWESOME!

My favorite food of all time is BEEF (STEAKS). As most american's beef is whats for dinner. Though since I was a little kid steak is more a rarity. The price of steak now is outrageous. And then when you get it, it just doesn't taste the same. Well now you can have your steak and eat it too. And you can enjoy it with this company Tender Filet. They have a wide variety of seafood, steak, pork, and poultry. They even have a Tur-Duc-Hen. Its a turkey stuffed with duck stuffed with chicken.

My family enjoyed these steaks and will be ordering from this company. I don't believe their is a better steak then the Tender Filet's. When we ate the burgers I thought to myself how can I make these good looking burgers better? I decided that I would make some great homemade biscuit rolls. What else could make this good burger a unique great burger. So I guess you all want to know how these burgers and steaks were done.

Well the NY strip was done one the grill for 6 minutes on one side and 7 minutes on the other side. I seasoned them with seasoned salt and white pepper. The burgers were pan fried in a 12 inch iron skillet. Seasoned with salt and pepper topped with cheese and put onto the homemade biscuit roll. The t-bones were pan-fried with butter, salt, and white pepper. The filet mignons were cooked on grill. They were marinated in red wine vinegar, salt, pepper, onion powder, and rosemary mixture. And all Came out GREAT.

Now the Great news for all my readers. You can win the same package as me. One lucky reader will win this AWESOME box of STEAKS AND MORE.

Soda Stream Review

I received this system free of charge for a honest review. This system is great. It has some great flavors such as Orange, Root beer, Kool aid, Crystal light, and even a Energy one. There is more than that. And all taste great. Another thing I like is you can put as little or as much carbonation as you like. You can also make your own syrup's to go with your soda stream.

When we first got the soda stream I was unsure about it. Though my husband was all about it. He was so excited to get to make his on soda's. And well the kids couldn't keep their hands off it. They were allowed to make one drink at dinner time and that was like a treat for them. When we ran out of the CO2 cartridge, we went and bought a new one right away.

So if you like soda but hate the cost this is the way to go. The only down side is it does not have all the flavors my family loves. And it can be a little cheaper. Though with my family this is a hit and we will use it for years to come.  You can buy refilled CO2 cartridges online for about $15 instead of new ones for about $30.

Also you can do a search on soda stream and homemade syrup's and find some useful and some funny stories. So go get one for yourself or a loved one and have a fun family night.

Ripley's Believe it or Not

I received this book for my holiday gift guide. The book is named Ripley's Believe it or Not Dare to Look. I must say I love it.. I have looked through it a few times now. It has several different areas... I have read this several times now. I think it is a awesome gift for any reader in your home. It is very interesting in its own way. The kids also loved it. If you like reading about things you never would have thought about then this is the book to get. Here are just a few of the things that really got to me. Also check out their Facebook page.

The cover has an eye that moves... LOL... Fake family??? This lady has 50 fake babies that she has spent almost $20,000 on a nursery for. They share the house with 3 of her 5 real children. CRAZY....

There is a stone forest in Madagascar.. Known as the Tsingy which means "where one can not walk barefoot". I would love to see this for myself one day.

There use to be a Yosemite Firefall almost every night at 9 pm for 96 years. Pretty cool... It was banned in 1968.  It was performed by several generations of owners of The Glacier Point Hotel, which burned down in 1969.

Ok last one I will share... It is a Playable Chocolate Record. You can play it on any record player about ten times before its wears down. Then you can eat it. You can eat the record, the label, and the sleeve. the sleeve and label are made from icing sugar and rice paper.. AWESOME!!!!

If you would like to read more about these or others that might be in this book the order yours now...
Ripley's Believe it or Not.  Amazon has it on sale for $19.34 Price is $28.95 US and $32.95 Canada Great prices...

French Toast School Wear Giveaway

Giveaway runs from Sept. 25th thru Oct. 4th so get your entries in now.

The opportunity to offer a giveaway to my fans for school uniforms is exciting. Thanks to French Toast for sponsoring! I dread back to school shopping and even more when you are on a tight budget. In our school district kids from 1-10 grades are required to wear uniforms and French Toast is like the official company that all stores carry for this area. I selected 4 items to review and it was hard to decide on sizes more than what products to get. When it comes to school shopping, I'm blessed to have parents who want to help out. I rarely pay for school supplies, clothes, or shoes, but what's difficult is always not shopping in advance. The last 3 years I always end up shopping late or waiting until the day before school starts to go out and purchase the items.
I decided to get 1 shirt, 1 pants, 1 dress, and a sweater. DD7 was in love with the dress which I knew with her being girly girl and all. With the weather slowly getting colder each day, she will have to hold off on the dress until I get some tights or legging to wear underneath. She hasn't gotten a chance to wear it yet, usually I have wearing pants and a polo shirt like this one.

Onli Review & Giveaway

I was given some to try for free. At first I didn't think I would like them. But it turns out they are great.. My favorite one was the Hibiscus Pomegranate. They have several flavors. Here is a few: Huckleberry Pomegranate, Hibiscus Pomegranate, Lemon Watermelon, Espresso Swiss Hazelnut, Green Tea Lemongrass Mango, and Unsweetened Hibiscus Strawberry.

Onli beverages are All Natural Chef inspired sparkling beverages with ginseng in every bottle. The sugar free has a different taste (more tart). Its more like an Italian Soda than the fake American Soda. Though even the sweetened ones are tart. They don't have a strong sugar taste. They are also non-carbonated, that is great. 

So if you want to try a case of Onli Beverages then enter via the Rafflecopter below.

I was give some Axe products for my husband to try. I also got hairspray for me. Well I gotta say I love the hairspray. I use a little bit and it holds my hair all day. I hate when I have to weigh my hair down with hairspray. Though with Axe it was light and left my hair manageable. Which is perfect. And the smell was great too... I found my new hairspray thanks Axe.

Now for my husbands experience... He got the Apollo collection. He loved the way the body-wash tingled while cleaning. LOL. He said he felt so clean after using it. He also loved the 2 in 1 shampoo and conditioner . He said his little bit of hair felt so soft after use. (he has a buzz cut). So really no need for conditioner... The deodorant kept him feeling fresh and clean all day. And well for me I loved how he smelled after taking a shower. It was a pleasant smell throughout my bathroom.

Now if Axe can make a women's line, it be awesome. I love the smell of the Apollo Collection.  So if you have a husband or boyfriend and you want a GREAT smelling guy.... Go get him some Axe Apollo Collection products.

Thank you so much for making my husband smell better than ever before Axe!!

Newman's Own Organic

I was given some products for free to review. All the products were great. Most people hear organic and think yuck. I use to be one of them. I try to feed my family, healthy. Though it is not always the easiest. Well Newman's Own Organics has made it a little easier for me, with their new line NOO. All the products I tried surpassed my thoughts and taste. Of course everyone in my house had their favorites. So I will tell you about those now.

My favorites were the Organic Pretzels thin sticks. They were lite on salt and big on flavor. Which is what I love. They are the perfect anytime snack. Made from organic unbleached wheat flour, organic brown rice syrup, organic sunflower oil, salt, yeast, and soda. They are a healthy alternative to regular pretzels which have a high salt intake. These NOO organic pretzel sticks have only 1.5 grams of fat, 110 calories, 180 mg sodium, 22 g carbohydrates, 4 g dietary fiber, 3 g protein and NO SUGAR per 30 grams of pretzels (about 22 sticks). I LOVE THIS!!!

My kids favorite was the NOO Newman-O's. They loved dipping them in milk. The kids fought over who was gonna hold the pack at the table. So I took them away and just gave each a few. The cookies have BIG flavor in every bite. My youngest took his a part and eat the cream then the cookie. I thought that was just so cute. Though I couldn't get a picture as kept swarming so I couldn't. I will buy these great awesome healthy cookies for now on.

My husbands favorite was the NOO Oatmeal Chocolate chip cookies. He took the bag to work with him. So he didn't have to share. LOL He said he loved them because they didn't taste like they were healthy for him. He hates anything that is organic, if he knows it. So it was shocking when he kept bragging about the cookies. He finally brought the bag home with a few left. When I tried it I had to read the package as they did not taste organic at all. Though they are. Such a little cookie with such a great texture and BURSTING FLAVOR! I usually don't eat cookies but now I will eat NOO Oatmeal Chocolate Chip cookies.

And last the whole family loved the Sour Licorice Twist. They are not very sour but are bursting with the flavors. I tried the sour strawberry, sour apple and sour mango. I loved all of them and so did the rest of the family. Also don't forget the chocolate. I tried the Super Dark Chocolate Raspberry Cups, Super Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups, and the Milk Chocolate Caramel Cups.

Needless to say everything we got to try was BURSTING with GREAT FLAVOR!!!!! Also on a side note the person I had the honor to work with was such an AWESOME, SWEET, GREAT & VERY FRIENDLY. I had some problems and she fixed them quickly and made sure I was happy. THANK YOU SO MUCH!! (You know who you are)

I will be doing a giveaway for a few items so keep your eye on my blog. Thank you all very much.

CheriBundi Review & Giveaway

I was given a case of this great juice. I love cherries, so I knew I would love this. It is tart and sweet at the same time. I also tried their 7 day challenge. I thought it would be hard to do.. And well it wasn't. I did complete it. I think this is a great way to clean and restore your body. The first day you drink two of the cheribundi drinks, then one a day for the next six days. I think this is perfect for anyone. Whether you are a runner, mom on the go, business professional, or a do it yourself person, this is the drink you need.

I do a lot in my everyday life. I am a mom, a runner, a do it yourself-er, and a Chef. I don't always have the time to take care of muscles/body. So when I got this to try it was perfect. I can just grab one of these perfect size bottles and keep going. After the first couple days I started feeling better. My muscles/body didn't hurt as much and I felt more relaxed. So again if you are to busy to take care of your muscles/body then give this a try.

Dizolve Review & Giveaway

So I was give a box of Dizolve to review. At first I thought how could one little strip clean a whole load of laundry. Well I used it today for the first time, and I liked it. My clothes smell clean and even some of the stains were gone. It is ultra concentrated so you use a lot less. Each strip contains the perfect amount for one load of laundry. NO MORE MEASURING!! Some of its other perks are its healthier, more economical and its safer for our planet. LOVE THAT!!! I can't use a lot of laundry soaps due to allergies. With Dizolve it hypoallergenic, free of 1,4-dioxane, phosphate free, biodegradable, and safe for your septic. Also GREAT!! It is so small that if you have to go to the laundromat to wash clothes, this is much easier.  Most Americans use more liquid detergent than is need. Meaning lots of money wasted. I personally HATE wasting money. (it doesn't grow on trees) :(  So if you hate wasting time and money, then Dizolve is for you. It just makes sense. Who wouldn't want an easier way to wash clothes. And save money while doing so.
Dizolve also has a fundraiser program which helps support different fundraiser for groups like schools and Sierra Club Canada. #dizolve @mydizolve

Dizolve has also offered to give one lucky reader a year supply. (6 boxes of 72) So make sure you enter the giveaway below via rafflecopter.

Bart's Cookies Review & Giveaway

Who doesn't love cookies??? Well I am very picky when it comes to my cookies. I usually only eat homemade (mine) cookies. Though when I received these Bart's Cookies to review, I said sure I'll try them. As soon as I opened my box I had hands waiting for cookies. They were a hit with the kids, the husband, and even the cousin. I had to fight just to get one for myself. Ok I didn't only because I hid 12 of the cookies, just for my late night snack. These cookies say they are bite size but I got 3-4 bites out of one. They are plump perfect little cookies. They have perfect texture, not too hard, not too soft. And the chips used in the cookies are huge. These cookies are full of flavor. Every bite I took was like a little party in my mouth. As I sit here writing this review my mouth is just water for more. I think I might of become a Bart's cookies ADDICT.. Is that bad??? Well I don't think so, but my diet does. I might have to just run a couple extra miles by the time I finish these cookies. I thought I could control myself, but like everyone else in my home I can't. My favorite is the white chocolate chip. The husband loves the peanut butter chocolate chip ones. And well the kids, they loved both. #bartscookies #cookies @bartscookies

I am very EXCITED that one of my readers will get a chance to try a dozen of these GREAT cookies for themselves. Make sure to enter via the raffle copter below.

Thera Fit Giveaway

I am happy to be helping with this AWESOME GIVEAWAY!!! I love the style and colors of these shoes. I can not wait to try a pair for myself. They look so comfy and stylish. Make sure to read the great review as well. This one is a good one. Good luck everyone!!!

Therafit_logo_FinalTherafit Shoes Review/Giveaway (8/26-9/9)
When I chose the Therafit shoes for this review.. I was thinking they are very cute and I love them for that but are they really going to be different then any other pair of shoes I have had before? I am here to tell you that the design of these shoes is not purely for looks but they really hold up to the claims they make about comfort. I get really tired achy feet when I walk or anything else so I don't walk or run nearly as much as I should. I decided I was going to take these shoes for a test run on a walk with my boys one night. I didn't really have high expectations because I have tried many shoes that claim to provide comfort. We started off around the park and it was going as normal just kind of walking around and then it turned into the next street over and the next one before my boys were telling me their feet were getting tired. I haven't walked that far in well for as long as I can remember. I really think the secret to these awesome shoes has to do with the adapters. It comes with three of them and you can use one, two or all of them. I personally like all three of them being in because of how much shock they absorb and the support they give me. I have actually found me wearing these shoes more often then I wear any other type of tennis shoes I have. I am big on wearing sandals so it is really saying something when I like another type of shoes. They also have really cool microbe shield that controls odor, staining and deterioration. I haven't had them long enough to really tell you if this shield holds up but honestly I have wore them out multiple times and they don't stink like my other shoes do at all! I did remove the adapters just to see how easy or hard it was to remove them and let me tell you it literally takes seconds to adjust the comfort on these shoes. I know I have mentioned it a little above but I for sure have to include how cute these shoes are I love the Black with purple and pink. They are so fun and so girly and I love wearing them out everywhere I go. I have gotten many compliments on them from fellow mom's about how they love the way they look and then I have to brag up about how they make my feet feel! I really recommend these to all those women and mom's out there who are constantly on their feet. Whether you are looking for a great shoes for exercising, walking or just to provide everyday comfort these would be a great choice! One thing I do recommend when I was ordering these they let me know they do run a little bit small so they recommend that you get a 1/2 size bigger then what you normally wear.

HBL Haircare Review/Giveaway (8/24-9/7)

I am excited to help out a friend with this HBL Hair Care giveaway. This is a great new product. Read her review below and make sure to enter the giveaway. Good luck to all who enter.HBL Hair Care is offering one lucky reader a Revitalizing System of their very own. I can't wait to try this new HBL Hair Care.

When I found out I was being sent the Revitalizing Hair Care System from HBL Hair Care I was really skeptical. I've always thought that shampoo isn't something worth really investing in and with a price tag of $62.90 this stuff can't possibly be that great can it? Well, I'm here to tell you that it is that great. I have a lot of hair, and a large obsession with coloring my hair. It's damaged, dry, and brittle from many rounds with hair dye. This stuff made my hair shiny, soft, and manageable! I'm a busy mom of 3 little boys and this made my hair so easy to work with, turning my morning routine from fighting my hair to something similar to those cheesy shampoo commercials (ok, I'll admit it. I shook my head back and forth in front of the mirror just to watch my hair shine and bounce). HBL Hair Care offers the following description on their Revitalizing Treatment: Cleanse, condition and revitalize weak, brittle and damaged hair with the HBL Revitalizing System. Enhance your HBL cleansing and conditioning experience by adding Revitalizing Treatment to your hair care routine. Designed to enhance any conditioner or chemical service, Revitalizing Treatment works to repair and strengthen for healthy, beautiful hair. They don't lie, my hair is strengthened and it feels a lot healthier than it did before I started the treatment. It smells great, and anything that can tame my wild mane is a win in my book. HBL has many other products for different types of hair so if the Revitalizing isn't for you check out their many other hair products there is something for everyone! The next product I am really interested in giving a try is the Hair Masque. Be sure to check out and connect with HBL haircare:   The kind people over at HBL Haircare want to continue to shower the love and give one of my lucky readers a chance to try the very same haircare package I did! So be sure to enter below!

Food Should Taste Good Review & Recipe & GIVEAWAY

So I was given some of these great new HEALTHY chips/crackers. I will admit at first I was query. When I want chips, I want the bad for you chips. Though after the first bite of the Kamhi chips, I was very impressed. Next I knew I just had to get my hands on that bag of Lime & Sea Salt tortilla chips. (they are also a cracker. So I decide to open them up and make some nachos.

The perks of eating these chips.... First they are healthy for you. I know you are all thinking healthy food usually taste bad or leaves behind an after taste, these don't. I like that they are a chip and a cracker at the same time. They have a great selection of flavors.

The name says it all. Food Should Taste Good. And well they chips live up to there NAME. I don't know of any other chips/crackers that live up to there name. I also looked at my look grocery store and there they were. Looking at the price of them they are a GREAT VALUE.

Okabashi Shoes

So I have had bad luck finding clogs that I can wear for 8 hours a day or more. I have tried many different types of clogs. Well I saw this new one I had never seen. I asked them if I could try there clogs and do a review of them. They were happy to send me a pair to review.

Well I got them within 3 days. Which was the first thing that impressed me. They were package great as well. But that really isn't the great part of all of this.

The clogs fit snug on my feet which is awesome! They did not wiggle around or fall off my feet. Also great.
They have arch support which is amazing! They even have the little toe line. (LOL) I liked that feature. I had no problem wearing these all day in the kitchen.

Here is a few other AWESOME perks of these clogs.  They are made in America. (no OUTSOURCING). (LOL) I love that. They are 100% recyclable and come with a 2 year GUARANTEE. That is AWESOME. This is a company that will stand behind their products.

I LOVE MY NEW CLOGS!!! I will be purchasing some flip flops from this WONDERFUL company @OKABASHI  #OKABASHI

Perky Jerky Review & Recipe

I have been wanting to try this awesome new jerky as well as making something with it. So I asked the wonderful people at Perky Jerky if they would help. I was sent some to play with and try to create recipes with it .

The jerky (beef & turkey) tasted so good. And not only that, but it was also so tender. It was bursting with flavor. This is some of the best jerky I have tried. My kids also love it. And what a great healthy new snack for them. It has NO added MSG . No nitrites or preservatives either. Its all natural!! Which I think is just AWESOME!!! As we try to eat as healthy as we can at our home.

My family will eat this awesome Perky Jerky for years to come. Whether its as a snack or made into a great new dinner.

So last night my husband wanted nachos. But I wasn't really wanting the same ole nachos. So here is what I made instead. Well we loved it.
