Poplets-Add the Perfect Crunch to Your Lunch

      Packing lunches for 3 children and making them happy can be nothing short of a miracle to say the least. My family going gluten free has made that even more of a challenge. Recently I was given the chance to review a product that not only gives my that gluten free option I have been searching for but it adds a little crunch to an otherwise boring lunch. Poplets Toasted Corn Centers are a crunchy snack that is available in three flavors, Asiago Ranch,Chili Picante and Sea Salt & Butter.

       Even before receiving these I was excited to try them. As a child I use to LOVE LOVE LOVE a product that was very similar to these, just a bit harder lol, I mean hard enough to break a tooth on. So of course when they arrived I opened up a bag of my favorite flavor, Asiago Ranch, and boy did they not disappoint! They had a great corn flavor topped with ranch. Sadly I still had to share with my children, lol so I opened up a bag of the other two flavors as well and we sat as a family and enjoyed. It is pretty funny usually when it comes to new products there is a clear winner in our house, I have to say this time there was not a clear winner!
       These have been a great add in for my husbands lunch and we just ordered a case for the school year. My kids can't wait to share these great new snacks with their friends, and to enjoy them for themselves as well! The bags are big enough that I am able to divide them into three and allow each child a bit for themselves. I am hoping they will start making them in a bigger bag so that I can have them in a jar ready for snacking! These just became available in stores in July, but if you do not see them in your store yet no worries you can order online HERE! You can also see what is new with OpenRoad Snacks on Facebook HERE.

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 …

The Children's Place Review and Giveaway

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. I had never done this before and with a packed schedule it was very handy! My daughter loved sitting don and being able to pick out an entire outfit for under $25. In fact she was not only able to get an out fit but to additional pairs of shorts! Not only was ordering fast and easy but we received our clothing in 2 days.

Butterfly Shirt $6; Matching Shorts $6;Flip Flops to go with her out fit $3.50. The excitement of picking her outfit herself Priceless.
She really had so much fun with this and she loves her new flips flops(because the 5 pairs she…

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 …
