Nature's Flavors

 Recently I was given the chance to review two great products from a company called Nature's Flavors. If you are a regular reader you know that my family and I are trying to get away from all the junk that as a society we put into our bodies. Food coloring is in more things then you think! So I was excited to get the chance to review Nature's Flavors Rainbow Pack of Natural Color.
What a better way to review a product them to make some cookies! Now I must admit I was really excited to try these, and not just because I got to make cookies.lol Food dyes have been linked to many problems in child behavior and health, so to find an all natural organic alternative was great!
 As you can see from the pictures the colors are not the traditionally bright colors that I grew up with. Nature’s Flavors brings the colors of the earth straight to the kitchen, and well like most things in nature extremely bright colors are never a good thing.lol I still love the colors those the red is very much like a deep cherry color and I am sure if I add enough of it the color would be quite dark. I was a bit shocked at how much was needed, but the bottles are very large so proportionally it was pretty even to traditional color.I have only gotten the chance to use the red, green and yellow colorings but I am already in love!  
 The second product I was able to review was the Big Bubble Gum Organic Mouth Wash. Dental health is so important from day 1. Our kids spend a lot of time brushing their teeth and dental appointments start at 6 months of age every 6 months. With all the worry about what we put into our bodies it seemed common sense to look into the alcohol filled mouthwash we were using to cleanse our mouths with. My kids really loved the taste of this mouthwash! Best of all I knew that is was safe for them. People laugh as we make changes in our lives but I must say I really notice the difference in the way we feel.

#Cozycatfurniture Growing up Kitty with Ginger

  It has been so many years since we have had a kitten around the house I think I had forgotten just how active and amazing they are! I am sure many of you have seen me talk about Ginger our baby. She is FeLV positive, and just days short of her 7 month birthday. We also have 2 other boys with are getting up there in age. Thomas has always been a scratcher and I admit I had never thought about getting a kitty tree before this. Earlier in the month a great opportunity to review the Kitty Condo Tree from   Cozy Cat Furniture came about I thought oh great Ginger will have a place to nap, play, learn, and most importantly SCRATCH!      It Arrived in a box which I have to admit scared me a bit at first, it was much small then I thought.....was the tree smaller....was this one of those "some adult assembly required" items? Luckily it was easy to put together and came out so much sturdier then I had expected.  Even before we could give the word go Ginger was eager to play a

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 li

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.
