Finding Cold Relaxation With Old World Gourmet

It is has gone from nice to miserable so quickly here in West Texas. With summer comes a way to not only cool down but enjoy the summer nights. Now I will admit I am not really a wine kind of girl but when a chance to review an adult Frozen Wine mixer came about I thought maybe it would bring a fun way to enjoy wine to my life. Old World Gourmet offers a wide variety of not only wine mixers but cocktail mixers and gourmet snack as well. I had such a hard time selecting which one to try first but finally I settled on the Blueberry Pomegranate Wine Mixer.

I loved how easy it was to make! I simply added the bottle of wine to a bag with the mixer and a bottle of water. The bad part was waiting for it to freeze! I used a nice blackberry wine and it was AMAZING! My husband liked it the most, but beware it is so delicious that you may have to worry about how much you consume.lol

As you can see it is nice and slushy frozen and oh so good! The next one I tried out was the Frozen Cosmopolitan Mixer. Now on the box it said to add vodka or white wine, but I decided to get a little wild and found a strawberry wine that looked good. The process was the same as far as mixing goes, but this time I used my brain and made it while breakfast was cooking so that by mid-afternoon it was ready for my tasting. When the temperature hit 90 degrees this afternoon I scooped out a glass and enjoyed. Not only was the taste amazing and different but it was a nice way to cool off while relaxing.

These are great ideas and for the price is a great way to increase not only the volume of your drink but the enjoyability. I highly recommend these as a great way to cool day on a hot summers day. They would also be good serve over ice if you were in a hurry or simply forgot to throw it in the freezer ahead of time!

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 …

Recently I was lucky enough to be given a chance to review The Children's Place. With summer time in full force here in West Texas getting some new summer time clothing was not only a needed thing but a fun thing to do. We decided to try out The Children's Place online ordering.

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 …
