Newman's Own Organics

As a newly working mom I unfortunately just DON'T have them time to make the goodies I use to during the week. So when it came to snacks for my family, there were a lot of things that I have had to change. When shopping at the store though it is frightening what is in our foods these days. Recently I was given the chance to review a company that really just does things differently. Newman's Own Organics produces an entire line of products that are not only delicious but free from dyes and chemical preservatives. While it has taken us a month we have finally made it through nearly all of the amazing products we were sent and I am pretty amazed to see what my children's favorites were. While we had many "candy" treats in our box in the form of licorice my oldest child fell in love with the Fig Newmans. My middle son really loved the Pretzel Thins (which didn't surprise me as much since he loves carbs.lol) and my youngest really loved the Berry Blend. I'm a creature of habit I suppose I LOVED the Newman O's, which are so much like my favorite cookie but available in several different flavors. Mint Newman O's were the best to me ;o) and my husband is weird and doesn't enjoy snacks like we do.

 My 4 legged friends also got to try out some new products. Newman's Own has a great line of pet products which include dry food, canned food and treats for both dogs and cats. We started sampling these products about the time that our little Sparky was starting to recover from Parvo. Newman's Own was the first food product that he would eat. After 7 days with no food I was desperate(I was going to wait till he recovered) so I gave him a couple pieces and he thought it was amazing. He has never wanted to eat his old dog food again!
Newman's Own Organics is available in stores around the country, even in my tiny town. To find a retailer near you simply go HERE and enter your information. Remember you only feel as good as the products you put in your body!

Homemade Fly Traps

We all love summer but as the weather gets warmer the flies get worse and worse. We have a bush out front of our house that I swear just attracts every fly in town! I wanted to get rid of them but I didn't want to kill all the wonderful butterflies it also attracts. So I went about finding a new way to kill them all. I had some empty Tazo tea bottles I simply poked a pen sized whole in the top, added 1/2 cup of water, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 tablespoon of dish soap, and 1 tablespoon of syrup.Now I do find that these work better if you place them in the sun :O) If you want to use a bigger container simply multiply the ingredients. Make sure your hole is only about the size of a pen cap! Then they can't seem to get back out.lol

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 …

Killing Ants Safely

LOL okay I know the title seems a bit silly. Here is West Texas ants are a BIG problem. Not only do they bite, but well they are really annoying! They sneak into every crack in your house no matter how hard you try. With pets though you are very limited to the products you can safely use to kill ants. As time goes on more and more I am concerned about the products I keep in this house and the effect they have on not only me and my children, but my pets. When looking for ways to rid myself of these pests I found a simple, cheap, and effective means to do so. CORNMEAL! Yep it is very simple, for about $2 a bag I can treat weekly for an entire year! While it doesn't kill them all it has certainly brought down the population so that now it isn't even noticeable. All you do it sprinkle it on top of their mounds and watch the greedy little ants drag it all inside! When eaten it expands and POOF! ;O) You get the picture.
