Glass Dharma Giveaway!

I said there was a series and you have probably noticed them posted at the same time.lol Here is another great giveaway I'm been honored to share with you!

I recently had the opportunity to review glass straws from a great company called Glass Dharma. Ok, I know when you think of maternity/ pregnancy items, you don't necessarily think of glass straws. Well, not only are glass straws good for the environment but they're also good for your body since they don't leach toxins into your drink as you sip. This is especially important during pregnancy. And anything that encourages hydration is good for you and your baby! I have to admit, I worried about the durability of the straws. Were they safe for my kids to use? Would they break easily? I was pleased to find out that Glass Dharma uses borosilicate glass because it is the strongest commercially available glass on the market. It's the same type of glass that your Pyrex pie plate is made from. Glass Dharma also offers a lifetime guarantee against breakage! Here is a copy of their policy" "If, for any reason*, your GlassDharma Drinking Straw breaks, you may return the broken straw for repair or replacement. If we cannot restore it to its original condition, we will gladly replace it." I received a 9" smoothie straw, a Beautiful Bends iced tea straw, a 9" red decorative dot straw, and a 6.25" blue decorative dot sipper straw. I was impressed with the quality of the straws and the pics of the colored dots do not do them justice. They are so pretty! My kids love the straws as much as I do. It makes drinking anything fun. We are big fans of smoothies in our house and the smoothie straw works really well! My boys just think they're "cool". All of Glass Dharma's straws a both dishwasher and microwave safe. I was worried about how easy they would be to clean but it's actually pretty easy. Just rinse after use and soak in warm soapy water. They have cleaning brushes available on the site that work perfectly with the straws. The wonderful people at Glass Dharma have offered a $25 gift certificate to one of our lucky readers!     a Rafflecopter giveaway

Jello Hard Candy

Most hard candies call for corn syrup, but since I was out and I have 3 children home I decided to experiment and make something fun! Here is what you need:
2 Cups of Sugar
2 Cups of Water
1 Package Sugar Free Jello
A candy Thermometer

Making candy is a pretty tricky process and trust me I messed up a batch or two getting this to work right.lol Put the sugar and water into the pot and turn on medium whisking well till the sugar is dissolved. Stirring pretty regularly to help the sugar from burning. As the sugar begin to boil turn the heat up to high. Watch your thermometer when the candy reaches 230 pour in the jello continuing to mix. Pour this mixture immediately into a cake pan that is lined with parchment paper of you can rub a little veggie oil in it. The candy will continue to cook as it melts anything over 230 you will be left with a burnt candy that tastes like licorice.lol After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I like to dust mine …

Rubbermaid Hidden Recycler Review and Giveaway

Recently I was given an amazing opportunity to review a new product by Rubbermaid called the Hidden Recycler. As a family who does a lot to help our planet in many ways this was an exciting opportunity. I loved the fact the Rubbermaid not only made a product that would help my family continue their recycling more easily but they reduced packaging to merely a cardboard sleeve that I could in turn recycle. I quickly opened the package like a kid at Christmas and discovered it would not fit my kitchen cabinets :O( we are in the middle of a kitchen remodel and the layout of my old cabinets would not hold the brackets.  So as I sat down to gloat about not being able to use this amazing product, and I notice two holes on the lid and made a massive dash for the directions. Sure enough I can attach it with screws! (Which ironically took me forever to find in our construction materials) I found the perfect place for it in my laundry room and began putting all of Rubbermaid's claims to the …
