Music CD Review: Dreamland Lullabalads By Dina Layzis

I received a copy of Dreamland Lullaballads by Dina Layzis and could not wait to pop it in during my daughters next bed time.  My kiddo and I were pleasantly soothed by the beautiful singing on the Cd, I think her  lovely voice really shines the most on the song  “Paint your dreams”.   The title “Dreamland […]

Review: Cooks Country

I am always looking  for the perfect recipe. Even then I like to tweak it to make it my own somehow. I guess that is just the little voice in me that desires to be a good cook.   My usual routine is either call my Mother, my Aunt or on occasion I call my cousin’s […]

Product Review: NuNaturals Stevia Products

I like so many others try to make healthy meals for my family. One of my family members is a diabetic. You have seen previous posts of mine where I bake alot for that family member. With holidays and family get together I always make the dessert sugar-free and then let him take the left […]

Cute Bento/Gluten Free Fried Corn

This is the kind of bento that is realistic and easy to put together. No cutting into little things or making it too fancy to make it appealing here and it is basically leftovers from last nights dinner. To add the cute factor (must have for my kiddo) two little cute animal food separators and […]

Book Review: The Sneaky Chef by Missy Chase Lapine

I heard of sneaking healthy foods into food that kids normally eat. Though I do not have kids that are too picky of eaters, every kid has their moments. Mine are no different. Sometimes you have to say ok to more kid friendly food, so why not make it healthier without them knowing.  My first […]

Product Review: Leap Pad learning system

I like a toy that actually makes learning not seem like school. I do not know one little kid who wants to come home from school, on vacation, sitting around on the weekend that wants to be in school instead of playing. There are alot of games out there that make it feel like a […]

Review: Cook’s Illustrated Magazine

What can I say, I love a good magazine.   Sitting in carpool sifting through the pages of  Cooks illustrated, it is made by the same people of America’s Test Kitchen show on PBS.   I am engulfed in the articles, notes from the readers and of course all the wonderful recipes.   I love the fact that […]
