Simply 7 Chips



















Chips....one of Americas favorite snack foods. Problem for my family is that chips really aren't that healthy and you must eat a ton of them in order to feel satisfied. Recently I was introduced to a fairly new brand of chips that my family has really enjoyed. Simply 7 has a great line of Lentil, Hummus and Pomegranate chips. I know what you are thinking....and yes at first I was a little afraid myself to try these chips. I started with the Bruschetta Lentil chips and I can tell you after one bite I was HOOKED. You get 31 chips per serving for only 140 calories, I know it doesn't seem like a lot but it really was enough to satisfy the craving I was having. The best part is when I turned over the bag I could actually pronounce what I was eating. My children are in love with the Roasted Red Pepper Hummus chips(despite the fact that my sons teacher told him hummus was degrading organic matter, gotta love public schools). My husband is just a man *sigh* he said a chip is a chip and they all taste the same dipped in salsa or dip.lol Speaking of dips Simply 7 offers a great recipe section on their website of healthy dips that can go right along with your chips. As a growing brand they are not yet available in all markets so check their store locator to see if there is a store near you, I have also found them on Amazon.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

I just tried these recently too and I love the Jalepeno flavored ones. That is funny that your husband said a chip is just a chip...lol.

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

Putting On Girl Scout Badges With A Flat Iron

I love helping all my little daisies earn badges, but as a mom I hate putting them on. Lol I saw an idea on Pinterest a while back to use a flat iron so I thought I'd give it a try.  It worked really well but I do have a couple suggestions. First make sure your badge  is exactly where you want them. Unlike an iron this causes the glue to melt very fast! Second count I 3-4 and it is probably done! Lastly you will likely have to apply pressure to the end pinching it tight. Overall it worked very well and I will probably keep putting badges on this way :)

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 …
