Hangers Couture Review and Giveaway

You have beautiful clothes hanging in your closet, but why hang them on dull and boring white hangers? Jazz up those hangers and hang your clothes in style!



Hangers Couture are designer beaded hangers, the perfect way to display your wardrobe. Offering adult and baby size hangers, they are the perfect gift for: baby showers, bridal showers, bachelorette parties, birthdays, holidays, house warming gifts, just to name a few. These hangers are the perfect gift for the "girl that has everything." They add "bling" to your closet, and are a great way to display your beautiful wardrobe. They are also functional by preventing thin straps from slipping. If you are looking to create the "wow" factor at your next gift giving event, Hangers Couture is your answer.

I was sent 4 hangers (2 crystal and 2 pearl) for review. They are absolutely gorgeous and I love them!







I've never had such beautiful hangers before! They really bring personality and a depth of fun to my closet and my clothes. The hangers are made extremely well and are made by hand too which is even more impressive. They seem very sturdy and able to hold virtually any article of clothing well. I'm a big lover of pearls, so the pearl hangers are my favorite. The pearls have a nice shine to them as well. The crystal hangers are equally as pretty and they sparkle in the light. I love the way the hangers look in my closet and I will be using them for some time to come.

1. I will be picking ONE (1) winner for this contest. One winner will win a 4 pack of hangers from Hangers Couture, 2 pearl hangers and 2 crystal hangers.

Green-Pan Review

Having a wide range of pots and pans in your kitchen is important. Each piece of cookware cooks your food differently and it's always nice to have various kinds for the ultimate level of cooking optimization desired.



Green-Pan is a Belgian based company that is the first cookware company to create PTFE-free non-stick products. Our products have truly transformed the entire cookware market. Each of our products makes a serious commitment to your health, your convenience and the environment. High-end materials and the latest state-of-the-art technology make it possible to create these unique lines of pans, pots and bakeware. Enjoy the new dimension, feel safe eating your creations and expand your cooking skills with GreenPan™.

Great benefits from using Green-Pan cookware:
With Thermolon™ non-stick technology; A natural, non-stick mineral-based coating.

No potentially dangerous chemicals inside: It’s completely PTFE-free and contains no silicone oil.

Manufactured without PFOA and applied in an environmentally friendly way, resulting in 60 % less CO 2 emissions.

Heat resistant up to high temperatures. If you accidentally overheat your pan, even up to 450°C/850°F, no toxic fumes will be released and the coating will not blister or peel

Use of up-cycled aluminum for the pan and up-cycled stainless steel for the handles.

Easy, convenient and great performance:

Anodized aluminium exterior and interior for extra hard surfaces.

The heavy gauge aluminium and the Thermolon™ interior provide perfect heat distribution, allowing even cooking and excellent browning without the risk of any hot spots.

The curved side walls and the wide pouring rims of the products will allow food to easily slide out of the pan.

Extra long handles with silicone sleeve for a stay cool and non-slip grip. The 3 rivets ensure a tight fixture to the pan.

Thanks to this Thermolon™ technology, the coating acts like an insulator that retains heat, moisture and flavors. These are sealed in and give you great results when preparing food.

I was sent a open chef's frying pan.



This pan is wonderful and I love that it's environmentally friendly and generally safe to cook my food with. If you like to cook your food on high temperatures, no problem! The coating of the pan will not peel or blister in any way. I cooked a small piece of grilled chicken in this pan and did not spray any non-stick cooking spray inside before cooking. I wanted to test out the special curved side walls that allow the food to easily slide out. The chicken easily slid out with no problems. Nothing was stuck on the bottom and the chicken did not break apart. I was impressed! I also love the large cooking surface this pan provides.

My chicken cooked evenly and perfectly and actually very quickly. The handle of the pan was easy to hold too while cooking. It did not get overly hot either and I was able to grip the handle perfectly. The pan is constructed very well and is of high quality. I love the green handle too, it gives the pan some personality.

Thanks to Green-Pan I've fallen in love with their products!

Lemon Ladies Orchard Review and Giveaway

Lemons are such a versatile fruit. Squeeze a little in your tea for a warm evening drink, give your vegetables pizazz with a little lemon juice and sea salt, and make a delicious lemon meringue pie with them too. Be creative and make a delicious side dish using lemons today!

Lemon Ladies Orchard sells beautiful, sweet Meyer lemons. These lemons are hand-picked every Sunday and mailed at their freshest to you on Monday. Wouldn't you love to receive a batch of these gorgeous lemons?

I was sent a 6 pack of lemons for review purposes.


These lemons are beautiful! They have such a perfect golden color to them too. They smelled great as well. I cut one up tonight to add some flavor to some broccoli. I squeezed some juice over the vegetable, added the tiniest bit of salt and roasted them in the oven. It came out smelling wonderful and tasted even better. The lemon juice combined with the salt was perfect and the flavors were magical together! The broccoli was fresh and delicious too. I wish I could make a lemon dessert too, but that will have to wait until I'm off my diet. These lemons would make a perfect gift for your friend or neighbor who loves to bake!

Propel Giveaway

I've been drinking Propel for years. I enjoy its delicious light taste, that is not overpowered by sugar. I like that it comes in different flavors so I can switch off and find new favorites.



Propel goes beyond hydration, replenishing you with antioxidant vitamints while quenching your thirst with great-tasting flavors without adding calories. The flavors of this drink come in berry, grape, black cherry (my personal favorite!), lemon, blueberry pomegranate, kiwi strawberry (2nd favorite!), and peach.

In recent news, Propel has taken out the calories while keeping the same great, natural fruit flavor. It offers a great way for active women and men to replenish (vitamins C & E), energize (B vitamins) and protect (antioxidants) their bodies.

Salt Traders Review and Giveaway

If you're like me, you're adventurous with food but are tired of the same level of personality in your food. You want to kick your food up a notch but don't know how to without using the same spices that you're used to. Well I have the perfect answer for you.



Salt Traders began with a fascination for specialty salts. Founders Rob Seideman and Kelly Hall owned the Cooking School of Aspen, which they opened in 1998. Their interest and education in the subject of specialty salts grew and they began offering a variety of salts and peppercorns at their school. Eventually, they focused all their energy on Salt Traders, educating chefs and the public on the benefits and vast array of sea salts available around the world. Rob and Kelly were central to the emergence of sea salt as a popular condiment and introduced it to home and restaurant kitchens across the country.

This company offers very unique blends of various salts, peppers, and sugars. They also provide speciality foods, gifts, and salt cellars too. Anything from this company would make a fabulous gift for any foodie.

I was sent a Didi Davis Salt Blend Collection:

Can't decide which salt blend flavor to try? No worries. Our didi davis food Salt Blend Collection allows you to experiment with and enjoy each flavor before committing to larger quantities. Additionally, the set is a perfect gift for any occasion!

Each set contains 10 g each of the following artisanal salt blends: Fennel Thyme Salt, Porcini Salt, Sagemary Salt, Caraway Salt, Vanilla Salt, Sumac Pepper Salt, Aleppo Chile Salt, and Smoked Paprika Salt. Each blend is crafted by hand and made with a moist, crunchy sea salt.

Use as a finishing salt. Our didi davis food Salt Blend Collection adds flare and crunch to fresh and cooked dishes. Use also mixed with oil as a rub, or sprinkle into soups, stews, and braises while cooking.

A convenient, sophisticated way to enhance any dish. Simply cook, sprinkle, enjoy! (taken from website.)

This salt blend collection is fabulous! I love the different colors that differentiate each salt. Before receiving this to review, I had no idea that spices could conform into salt! I thought all salt was just...well plain table salt. Well I was so wrong! Each blend of salt is very unique and has its own distinct personality. I will not be using any of the chile blends because I don't enjoy spicy foods.

I added a tiny bit of vanilla salt to some roasted asparagus before roasting it, and it gave it a lot of flavor. You wouldn't think vanilla would go with asparagus, but it really gave it a nice flavor. I think sagemary and fennel thyme would go excellently if rubbed into chicken before cooking. I bet it would smell amazing too.

One thing that I really like is that each blend is very small. It gives you a small sample to try to see if you like it, rather than buying a large jar of it and finding out that you don't like it. Also something else that's really convenient is the fact that the entire canister is stacked on top of each other, so all of the blends stay together and you don't lose any.

I can't wait to further explore new recipe options with these artisinal salt blends. I bet I stumble onto something excellent and delicious :)

GIVEAWAY RULES:
1. I will be picking ONE (1) winner for this contest. One winner will win a Didi Davis Salt Blend Collection.
YOU MUST DO THIS FIRST or all other entries will be DELETED!
2. Please tell me why you feel your food needs to be spiced up!(1 entry)

SeaPak Review and Giveaway

SeaPak is heaven for seafood lovers. As you browse the golden doors in the supermarket holding in SeaPak's delicious foods, you find yourself in a dilemma. Should I buy the jumbo breaded shrimp, the popcorn fish, or the shrimp scampi? No, I should try the tilapia tenders! As you can see, SeaPak is home to many different seafood meals that will make their way from your tastebuds, to your stomach, and into your heart where you will love them.



The SeaPak Shrimp Company is the #1 retail brand within the frozen specialty seafood category. For 60 years, they've provided the highest quality, best-tasting shrimp. Quite simply, they're the shrimp experts. The SeaPak Shrimp Co. is known for its care and attention in choosing only the best shrimp for its retail and foodservice products.

If you're a shrimp lover, you must try SeaPak's shrimp. I'm speaking from experience and it's delicious!

I was sent a bag of popcorn fish for review.

There are about 55 pieces in each bag and they are whole cut fillets lightly breaded with SeaPak’s signature seasoning. The bite sized treats are perfect to be stuffed into a taco, topped on a salad or dipped as an appetizer. They are equally great on their own too!

My boyfriend created a taco with these bite-sized pieces which fit perfectly inside. Taco de fish was stuffed with the popcorn fish, lettuce, tomato, a tiny bit of sour cream, and cheese. Sounds good, right? He said the popcorn fish had a great flavor from the seasoning and the crunch was fantastic. The fish was juicy and flavorful when you bit into the popcorn fish, but the outside was perfectly crunchy. Just perfect! It really went well with all of the other ingredients he put in the taco. He said he never had popcorn fish before, but only popcorn shrimp, so it was interesting to try a new version of an old favorite. The possibilities for these bite-sized nuggets of deliciousness are endless. Be creative and incorporate them into your favorite dish today.

GIVEAWAY RULES:
1. I will be picking TWO (2) winners for this contest. Two winners will win a SeaPak flexible chopping board.
YOU MUST DO THIS FIRST or all other entries will be DELETED!

Nutrisystem Week 4 Update

I lost one more lb this week on Nutrisystem, for a total loss of 6 lbs! I am in a new range of numbers now and that really excites me! I am noticing a slight change in the way my clothes fit and I feel a lot better about myself. I also notice a change in the way my face looks too, it definitely looks thinner.

I have been following the plan to a T, exercising, and drinking the required amount of water. I love that I can eat delicious foods that make me lose weight. It's really a treat. I even bought some new clothes last night, and for the first time in a long time I actually truly liked the way they looked on me.

My goal for next week is 1.5 or 2 lbs down. Hope to update you with good news next week!

*Nutrisystem is providing their program free of charge for my participation in the Nutrisystem Nation Blogging Program.

Bunny Slippers Review

My feet often get cold, it's the worst part about the cold months of the year. Either my feet or freezing cold, or they get hot instantly when I put on socks. I can't win! When I do want to slip something on my feet, I often go for a cozy pair of slippers though that are easy to take off when my feet get hot. Who doesn't love a cute pair of slippers to keep their feet warm?



Bunny Slippers is your source for all things bunny and bunny-slipper related! In addition to their selection of bunny slippers, they offer a growing variety of animal slippers, novelty slippers, stuffed animals, socks and other unique gifts. They're always adding new products to their site, so check back often!

Bunny Slippers? Check! Black bear paw slippers? Yup! Green turtle slippers or Ladybug slippers? Yes! They have those too. This company offers virtually every animal slipper-fied that you could ever possibly want to see featured.

I was sent a pair of dalmatian slippers!


These slippers are so funny. They are very realistic and have the perfect attributes of a dalmatian dog! The slippers fit me well and are very soft and comfortable. The fur of the dog is very soft too. I love walking around my house with these when I'm just lounging around. I like that they have an open back and slip on and off easily whenever I don't want to wear them, instead of having to deal with taking socks on and off. The only thing I don't like is that the inside is white, because they will get dirty easily. These will be great to wear until there's more spring like weather in New York!


Sodastream Giveaway

Are you a fan of soda, but are tired of lugging 6 or 12 packs of soda into your car, or even worse heavy bottles? Do you wish you could have soda all the time without all of the annoying bottles and cans to deal with and recycle? Do you want to save money on buying soda too? Well, Soda Stream is your answer!

Soda Stream is so easy to use. Making carbonated water and soft drinks is simple! Turn tap water into sparkling water in under 30 seconds, with no clean-up. Enjoy the freshness and convenience of homemade soda and protect the environment at the same time. No heavy bottles to carry, store at home or throw away. Fizz to your taste and add the flavor of your choice to make your favorite drink. Simple to clean and reuse. With a variety of colors and silhouettes, you'll be sure to find a soda maker to match with any decor.



Imagine having soda at your convenience whenever you want it! Whether you like lemon lime soda, cream soda, cola, or rootbeer, Soda Stream provides it! They have many more flavors as well.

I am giving away a soda stream maker plus 8 bottles of assorted soda mix and 3 mini bottles of concentrated mix.

Sarris Candies Review and Giveaway

As everyone here knows, I am a big fan of chocolate. Chocolate is not usually diet-friendly though right? Well this time it is!



From boxed chocolates and peanut brittle to sugar free candy and chocolate covered pretzels, Sarris Candies offers a wide variety of premier chocolates, corporate gifts, novelty gifts, wedding gifts, holiday items, and more.

If you're looking for chocolate nirvana, you can make sure to turn to Sarris to assist you. Whether you're looking for springtime chocolate covered oreos, gift boxes of treats, or even designing your own box of chocolate, Sarris is your go to company.

I was sent a box of chocolate covered pretzel slims:

(a close up of the delicious treats.)

The best part about these goodies? 100 small calories!! I couldn't believe that the pack was only so few calories because so many chocolate covered pretzels are in there. Having a pack of these will definitely curb that sweet tooth of yours. After I finished one pack it filled me up and I didn't want anymore. Instead of having a candy bar or a piece of cake with hundreds of calories, have a pack of these. They taste just as great but have half the calories.

Chocolate and pretzels to me is a timeless combination. How can you not love sweet and salty? These pretzels would be a great snack to throw in a lunchbox for school or work, or just to have a little sweet treat during the day. I thought these treats were delicious. I had a pack for a snack. The pretzels were very fresh and provided a great crunch with just a hint of saltiness. The chocolate was rich and sweet and utterly fantastic. The chocolate blanketed the pretzel in a most fabulous way and gave it such personality. I guarantee that you will be in chocolate bliss after sampling these!

GIVEAWAY RULES:
1. I will be picking ONE (1) winner for this contest. One winner will win a 6 pack of Sarris chocolate covered pretzel slims.
YOU MUST DO THIS FIRST or all other entries will be DELETED!

Yantra Mat Review and Giveaway

If you often find yourself stressed, tired, and just generally unable to relax, you're definitely not alone. Massages feel great and often help but the tension and stress that you're feeling can easily come back. Acupuncture can be costly, just like massages and is painful. What else can you do that you haven't already tried? I have just the answer for you.

Yantra Mat is an acupressure mat that provides stress relief. This unique mat utilizes 100% ABS plastic disks patterned on the mat that are rather intimidating looking at first but are actually the secret behind how the Yantra Mat works. The hundreds of disks provide a flower pattern that allows the mat to utilize over 8,820 pressure points."

I had seen other bloggers review this mat and I thought that it looked like something I was interested in trying. The mat comes in the colors of purple, green and black.

I received the mat and it came in a convenient zip-up case for easy storage. When you're not using the mat, just put it in the case and store it underneath your bed or in a closet.



A close up of the spikes:


A guide to using the Yantra mat:

Carefully lie down on your Yantra Mat. Distribute your weight evenly over the contact points. For the first few minutes, you will likely experience discomfort; this will subside. Breathe deeply and remain still.

Certain conditions can make our skin more sensitive. The Yantra Mat should not feel painful. If it does hurt, place a thin sheet between your body and the mat. After a period of time, try using the Yantra Mat without a protective layer.

Days 1-4
We recommend about 10 minutes of use. You'll recognize the Yantra Mat’s effects right away, but they may develop once you start using the mat more frequently. Some people fall asleep on the mat. Others get an energy boost immediately after use.

Days 5-14
We recommend about 20 minutes of use, preferably at bedtime. If you fall asleep, that’s okay. Avoid watching the clock (set an alarm if you must). The most important thing is to relax. It doesn’t matter if your total time on the mat is more than 20 minutes. Remove the mat when you wake up and go back to sleep. Eventually, you’ll feel that you awake more refreshed and energized for the day ahead.

After 14 days
By this time, you will have learned a lot about the Yantra Mat and its effects on your body/mind. Try 20-40 minutes, or more. You can lie on the mat as long as you like. We suggest using the mat daily, although some people use it less often.

I tried the mat for the first time last night. I laid on it and at first it was slightly paintful but tolerable. After 3-5 minutes, the pain subsided and a wave of relaxation and minimal pain washed over me. I laid on the mat for an additional 5 minutes and I felt very relaxed and drowsy. I think this would be a great routine to adopt nightly before bed to help aid sleep. I want to try to build up my resistance to be able to eventually lay on the mat for 30-40 minutes.

GIVEAWAY RULES:
1. I will be picking ONE (1) winner for this contest. One winner will win a Yantra mat of their color choice.
YOU MUST DO THIS FIRST or all other entries will be DELETED!
2. Please tell me how you de-stress. (1 entry)

World Water Day Giveaway

World Water Day kicked off yesterday. It's important that we understand what is in tap water, and how it could be dangerous for us to drink unfiltered water. Some helpful tips about PUR water filtration are below.



In many cities our tap water might not be as clean as we think. By-products from chlorine can sometimes show up in our tap water, in addition to agricultural pollutants, heavy metals, sediment, pharmaceuticals, and microbial cysts- YUCK!

Ø Pur Water offers an at-home water filtration system to fit every lifestyle. From a one-click faucet mount to a pitcher and dispenser to even a refrigerator filter!

Ø PUR faucet mount filters remove 99.9% of trace pharmaceuticals, 99% of lead and even reduce chlorine (taste and odor).

Ø PUR is helping many people break their bottled water habit – by using a PUR faucet mount filter together with a refillable bottle (SIGG), each household can help eliminate up to 3,200 plastic water bottles from the world every single year. You can also save up to $800!

Ø PUR water filtration systems offer reduction at a reasonable cost – certified to reduce 61 contaminants at only $0.01 for an 8-oz glass.


Additional refrigerator filter info that might be interesting to you:

By using two water filters per year, a refrigerator system can filter the equivalent of 3,000 bottles of water, saving over $600 a year versus purchasing a leading brand of bottled water. Making the switch to filtered water and a reusable water container can help reduce plastic bottle waste in landfills.

Manufacturers recommend changing the refrigerator water filter every six months to drink with the confidence that their water is clean and fresh, and that unseen contaminants such as lead and mercury which can be found in some – but not all – tap water, have been reduced.

Many refrigerators have an easy-access system, located conveniently at the bottom in the grille or just inside the refrigerator on the ceiling in the back, to make changing the filter quick and easy.

What better way to honor the importance of water and at-home filtration, than by offering one lucky reader a product to help celebrate this annual day EVERY DAY in their homes with Whirlpool's PUR refrigerator filter!

With the PUR Push Button Refrigerator Water Filter, you’ll get up to 100 gallons of great-tasting, clean water, per filter. That’s 6 months of clean water right from your faucet—filtered to remove 99% of lead and microbial cysts (cryptosporidium and giardia),* and reduces many other contaminants like 97% of trace levels of pharmaceuticals.**

This filter fits all refrigerators with Push Button In-Grille water filter and may be used with FAST FILL water dispensing systems.***



GIVEAWAY RULES:
1. I will be picking ONE (1) winner who will win a Whirlpool PUR refrigerator filter.
YOU MUST DO THIS FIRST or all other entries will be DELETED!
2. Please tell me what you do to make your water safe for drinking. (1 entry)

Bare Minerals Review and Giveaway

I've used Bare Minerals and Bare Escentuals makeup in the past, but have never had the opportunity to try out their skincare line. I knew it had to be great because I've had such wonderful success with their makeup.



It all began when we asked women to imagine a makeup that would actually change the way they feel about their skin and themselves. We encouraged women to take a leap and try something so unique, so unlike anything they’ve experienced before. We started the idea that makeup could actually be considered skincare, and we got people talking. A makeup that could be good for you? The Bare Escentuals community was born. We became friends with our customers, forging deep, personal connections simply by listening and sharing stories.

It became less about makeup and more about what really matters.

Bare Minerals offers makeup and products that helps you look and feel your best, and offers flawless coverage. Skincare products are available to help your skin look healthy and beautiful-and at its best.

I was sent two cosmetic products to review. I received Bare Minerals Purely Nourishing Moisturizer, and Bare Minerals Deep Cleansing Foam. I love the packaging of the boxes, the graffiti-esque writing on the side is definitely eye-catching. The size of the products are great and will last me awhile.

This universal moisturizer effectively hydrates skin while improving firmness, elasticity, radiance and overall skin texture. Powered by our RareMinerals ActiveSoil Complex with its unique electrolyte delivery system, it’s formulated to perfectly moisturize combination skin. It also includes a powerful blend of antioxidants that help protect against environmental stressors.


This luxuriously rich cleanser deep cleans pores and lifts away impurities. Powered by our RareMinerals ActiveSoil Complex, this non-drying formula bursts into a rich lather when activated with water to clean and instantly refresh skin for a soft, smooth complexion. Sulfate free.

I used the deep cleansing foam to wash off my makeup when I got home from work this evening. The instructions say to use a very small amount, because a little goes a long way. The foam did not lather up too much (which doesn't mean that it's not working!) but enough where I felt that my skin was getting cleaned. The foam rinsed away cleanly with no problems. Afterwards my skin felt smooth and refreshed and truly clean. I've used cleansers before where my face still felt like it had makeup on it after I washed it, and I felt like I had to wash it again. I didn't feel that way with this cleanser. It didn't have any special scent to it (although I wish it did), but had a "clean" smell to it.

I followed up by using the nourishing moisturizer after the cleanser. I frequently have dry/very dry skin and I find myself constantly searching for that product to keep my skin hydrated at all times. I applied a thin layer of moisturizer to my face and rubbed it in. It was not very greasy or thick which I was happy about. This product also had no strong scent. My skin instantly felt revived and rejuvenated. My skin had a nice healthy look to it afterwards.

I really love these products and I will definitely be adding them into my daily beauty routine!

GIVEAWAY RULES:
1. I will be picking FOUR (4) winners total for this contest. Two winners will win Bare Minerals Purely Nourishing Moisturizer, and two winners will win Bare Minerals Deep Cleansing Foam.
YOU MUST DO THIS FIRST or all other entries will be DELETED!

Taking Life Day By Day

One Picture A Day And Plan Your Life Away

Life is meant to be lived to the fullest, but sometimes we forget that when everything else gets in the way. If you want to get out to enjoy the sunshine, then you need to make sure that all your other ducks are in line. When you have all the necessities taken care of, you are much more likely to enjoy yourself when you are doing other things. Here are some tips and tricks on how to get the most out of your everyday life—getting things done and making memories.

• Get a day planner – The vast majority of people now organize everything on their phones or other portable devices, though some still have paper day planners as well. Either method is fine, just make sure it works for you. There are advantages to both modes of organization, since a paper planner won’t glitch on you or lose your data, but an electronic planner can send you reminders and make sure you have no scheduling conflicts.
• Keep a journal – A journal helps you remember special memories, but it also helps you keep track of important dates and milestones as well. If you have a hard time remembering fun date activities, you can keep a running list in the back. Or, a journal is useful if you want to store letters, cards, photos and other mementos tied to a specific date or memory.
• Take photographs–This is true especially if you have children because they grow and change so much over such a short period of time. Whether you take a picture a day to chronicle your life’s events, or you only take a camera to special events, make sure you always keep it charged for those moments that are both unexpected and completely amazing.
• Block out time – If you find you are always stressed or busy, block out at least a half hour of time each day that is solely for you. Use this time to do something you love, like reading, talking with friends or doing a hobby.
If we aren’t careful, life will take over and we won’t have anything to show for it. Take the time to get organized and make memories, you’ll appreciate it down the line.

Dr. Praeger's Review and Giveaway

Instead of having french fries, or mashed potatoes, why don't you try a different potato recipe? Expand your palate and sample a new food today.

It all started in 1994 when successful New Jersey cardiac surgeon Dr. Peter Praeger and his medical partner, Dr. Eric Somberg, helped keep a family business alive. They bought Ungar’s Gefilte Fish – a popular food company within the Jewish and Yiddish communities. The doctors set out on a simple mission – to help people see nutritious food in a new light. They expanded the company to include all-natural and sensible products that would appeal to a wider consumer base. They kept the Ungar’s brand, which includes the original gefilte fish and other traditional Jewish foods, and developed Dr. Praeger’s Sensible Foods, which now includes dozens of all-natural, kosher frozen foods.

Dr. Praeger's philosophy is that good-for-you food should actually taste good, especially if you don’t let artificial ingredients, colors and fillers get in the way. That’s why our products are made with ingredients you recognize, including flash-frozen vegetables and fish from cold Northern waters. Our hearty California Veggie Burger doesn’t conceal its tasty spinach, broccoli, peas, carrots and onions –it puts them right where you can see and taste them! And our gluten-free options are an easy way to keep wheat out of your diet, while keeping the good things in, like fiber and taste bud-pleasing flavor.

Dr. Praeger's sells different varieties of veggie burgers, appetizers and snacks, veggie chicken, veggie pancakes, meals for kids, fish, and gluten free foods.

I received a coupon to try any Dr. Praeger's foods I wanted. I let my boyfriend pick out what he wanted. He chose the potato pancakes.


Potato pancakes are shallow-fried pancakes of grated potato, flour and egg, often flavored with grated onion or garlic and seasoning. Potato pancakes may be topped with a variety of condiments, ranging from the savory (such as sour cream) to the sweet (such as apple sauce or sugar), or they may be served ungarnished. Potato pancakes are sometimes made from mashed potatoes to produce pancake-shaped croquettes.

He had them for dinner tonight. He said they had a nice crunch on the outside, but not too crunchy. The potato interior was fluffy and very soft. The potato flavor was prominent and very excellent. The size of each pancake is perfect for a quick lunch or snack. He paired it with mustard, but said it would be great paired with any condiment. He said these pancakes have a very similiar taste to the homemade potato pancakes he's had before. He liked that these weren't very greasy or oily though.

GIVEAWAY RULES:
1. I will be picking FIVE (5) winners who will win two free product coupons for Dr. Praeger's foods each.
YOU MUST DO THIS FIRST or all other entries will be DELETED!
2. Please tell me why you would love to win these coupons. (1 entry)

David Tishbi Review and Giveaway

Beautiful jewelry is something I can't get enough of. Although I do wear a lot of costume jewelry, I can definitely appreciate a sterling silver necklace or a gold ring. There's something special about a simple piece of jewelry that catches my eye though.

David Tishbi handcrafted designs specializes in a “two-tone” jewelry process, emphasizing a striking juxtaposition of gold and sterling silver. Unique designs in conventional solids are also staples throughout the expansive collection. These vibrant pieces brandish a variety of genuine and simulated stones including: amethyst, topaz, garnet, diamond, pearl, moonstone, quartz, tourmaline, and more. Each piece stands alone in its distinct motif, craftsmanship, and allure.

David Tishbi Handcrafted Jewelry is carried in retail establishments worldwide and maintains its ongoing commitment to the industry setting standards that made David Tishbi more than just a name, but an ideal.

David's jewelry is stunning. Each piece is so clean and pure, but at the same time speaks loudly. Whether you are in the market for a unique necklace, a wedding ring, a bracelet, a ring, a pin, or much more; David Tishbi designs is your go to company.

I was sent a handcrafted Sterling Silver "believe" engraved ring.


Engraved with the words "believe" is a spinning band of sterling silver creating a calming yet symbolic representation of infinity. The high polish finish has a unique chic that makes this pendant an excellent gift idea. Handcrafted in Israel this item is made from recycled precious metal that is lead and nickel free.

This ring is beautiful! The spinning design of the ring is very unique, and I've never seen any jewelry like that before. The smaller ring freely spins around a bigger fixed "ring base". The ring fits well and is comfortable to slip on and off. The silver shines nicely and is of high quality. The engraved words are on strong and are very readable, I think the ring is inspirational too. If you're having a bad day, just believe in yourself and you can get through whatever hardship you're dealing with. The ring and engravement are smaller in person than in the picture, and it's a delicate piece of jewelry.
The ring would be a great gift for anyone and they would certainly love it.

GIVEAWAY RULES:
1. I will be picking ONE (1) winner who will win a Handcrafted Sterling Silver "Believe" Engraved Ring.
YOU MUST DO THIS FIRST or all other entries will be DELETED!
2. Please tell me why you would love to win this ring. (1 entry)
