Keeping Cool and Feeling Better With Fruttare

I have been lucky enough this week to ask to review a cool new product and it couldn't have come at a better time. Not only has the heat been what can only be described as brutal, but my little princess has also been very ill(she got a bacterial infection in her throat). With the kids just getting out for summer vacation, summer is already in full force here in West Texas. I knew today when we woke up that it was going to be a frozen treat kind of day, at 78 degrees 4am felt more like it should have been 4 pm. Don't worry I am not eating Fruttare Frozen Fruit Bars at 4am, but I did consider it! What is Fruttare you ask? They are a brand new frozen treat made with real fruit and milk. 

bad thing about sick kids is they don't take good pictures ;)
When I went to the store the shelves had nearly been wiped clear of these new bars! My kids decided that they wanted to try the Fruttare Strawberry Bars. The first thing I noticed when I opened one was how much it smelled JUST like a strawberry....I know what you are thinking...well yes Mellissa it is a strawberry frozen fruit bar it should smell like strawberries. I agree, but so many time there is so many preservatives and the fruit is so processed you can't smell it. Not only did these smell amazing but you could really see the chunks of strawberries right in the treat. These treats were nothing short of an extreme hit with my family and I have no doubt that we will continue to buy them. There are so many varities available I just hope we can catch them before they fly off the shelf next time! At just $3.48 for 6 LARGE fruit bars the value is great and the health factor is priceless over the pure sugar they could be eating to keep cool.

#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 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 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.
