Peeled Snacks Review and Giveaway



In New York City in 2004, Noha Waibsnaider founded Peeled Snacks when she noticed something missing from the world of snack foods. Store shelves were full of processed potato chips, corn syrup-filled candy, and energy bars made with too many mysterious ingredients. But you couldn't get anything healthy and tasty that made you feel good about snacking. So she set about to fix that problem.

Her solution? Three tasty and nourishing varieties of fruit & nut mixes that became Peeled Snacks. Peeled Snacks are made with ingredients that you recognize. Large, easy-to-eat pieces of fruit and nuts provide a natural source of vitamins, minerals and fiber - with NO added sugar or fat. The nuts are dry roasted and lightly salted. And for the chocolate lovers, we use the finest rich dark chocolate with 61% cacao in our Shock-olate variety.

At Peeled Snacks we know that food starts out delicious and nutritious, and it doesn't need some machine to improve it, or engineering to perfect it. We bring you food that's as close to its natural state as possible. So make snacking a satisfying part of your lifestyle by eating food as it was meant to be: peeled.


Peeled Snacks generously sent me a few types of their snacks to try. I received Cherry-go-round, pine-4-Pineapple, much-ado-about-Mango, Banan-a-peel, Apricot-a-lot, and Apple-2-the-core. The interesting thing about these snacks is they are actually just peeled fruit, not dried like most other fruit snacks. While it took a few bites for me to get used to it, I realized I quite like it! I'd have to say my favorites would be the Banan-a-peel and Apple-2-the-core. Yummy!

If you're interested in trying out Peeled Snacks but aren't ready to buy: you can hop on by your local Starbucks this Friday, February 26, for a free sample!



And now for the GIVEAWAY!

One of you will win a Picks Sampler which includes 1 each of Cherry-go-round, pine-4-Pineapple, much-ado-about-Mango, Banan-a-peel, Apricot-a-lot, Apple-2-the-core, Cashew later & Almond-daze.

Ilinois Nut and Candy Review and Giveaway

Raising the Candy Bar is the latest addition to Illinois Nut & Candy Home of Fantasia Confections. For over a quarter of a century Illinois Nut & Candy formerly Illinois Nut Outlet has been doing just that raising the bar. Since September 2004 Melissa and David's goal has been to constantly raise the candy bar by not only being the largest Kosher candy store in the Midwest but by trying to be the largest niche candy store as well. We offer Gluten Free, Lactose Free, Sugar Free, Organic, Vegan Friendly - all under Kosher supervision.

We have over 600 confections from apple rings to zebra bark. Our expansive selections of nuts are freshly roasted and our dried fruits come from around the world. Our highly trained chocolatiers combined with their experience and our valued recipes have given us world renowned confections such as our own hand made English Toffee as well as our Taffy Apples. Our chocolate confections include miniatures filled with crèmes, barks, dipped glazed fruit, turtles, rocky road bars, and two separate lines of truffles our traditional line and our signature line for the more discriminating pallets. All of our chocolates are available in both a smooth creamy milk chocolate and in a rich semi sweet chocolate. What truly separates us is our commitment to customer service. Our goal is to make your experience a sweet one.


Illinois Nut & candy generously sent me 2 items for review!

The first absolutely scrumptious item was the 16 –piece box of truffles. Leave a lasting impression with our Fantasia Confections. This box of handmade truffles is pure decadence.

There are no gluten ingredients in this product but the product was manufactured in a NON-GLUTEN FREE facility.


I though these truffles were absolutely fantastic! My favorite truffle in the box, I would say, was the Mint Chocolate. Soooo yummy! They were sweet enough for me and definitely cured my chocolate craving! Best of all…. The truffles are casein free, fluten free, lactose free / pareve, and resinous glaze free. To learn more about these niche products click here.


The second item I received was the Macadamia Fruit & Nut Mix. This fruit and nut mix is wonderfully delicious and also nutritious! I am a big fan of dried nuts and fruit mixes and thought this mix contained a great blend of both. Just like the truffles, the fruit and nut mix is Casein free, and lactose free / pareve free. It’s also considered to be a vegan products

And now for the GIVEAWAY! One of you will win one 16 piece box of truffles! This giveaway is open to the USA only!

My Competitive High School Memory – Inspired By High School Reunion

Do you remember sports games when you were in high school? How about a game you played with your friends where you just wanted to win?



When I was in high school I had a class called Foods and Nutrition. In this class we had various competitions making different foods. My favorite competitions were the ones where we made cakes! As you can see above, that's me posing with one of my first cakes for the competition. We had to make a chocolate cake and use whip cream piping. I decided to step it up a notch and use some chocolate ganache. One problem... the ganache was a little too thick between the layers and it was difficult to cut...OOPPSSSIEEEE!!

Watch a new episode of High School Reunion on TV Land - Wednesdays at 10p/9! Click here for more info!

I have been hired by Warner Bros WB Word division to raise awareness for TV Land's High School Reunion.

And the Wishes and Kisses giveaway winner is...

The Brag Company Review and Giveaway


Jane Webb had a problem. Her expensive bras kept getting ruined in her suitcase when she travelled. No matter how she packed them, they would always arrive dented and creased. She searched everywhere for a product that could protect her bras when she travelled, but no matter where she looked, no one had the solution.That’s how the idea for the Bra Bag began…. out of necessity.

At the time, Jane was a stay-at-home Mom with her two daughters, and had no formal business training. Not really knowing how to start, Jane enrolled in a business start-up program, and away she went.

Jane signed up with a product development company to get the idea off the ground. After many months of failed product designs, and many hours of ‘tweaking’, the Bra Bag was born!

Jane applied for a patent design for the Bra Bag, and registered her trademark, and she took off!

Just 3 years later, the Bra Bag is sold in over 10 countries around the world and is now joined by the Buxom Bra Bag, for bras up to a ‘G’ cup, and the newly launched Panty Pak… which keeps your ‘clean’ and ‘not so clean’ panties in their respective spots when travelling. No more plastic bags or embarrassing moments at the Customs counter!

Jane’s products have been featured on The Today Show, The Rachael Ray Show, and the celebrity sought after Spanx company asked Jane to help them in launching their new Bra-llelujah at the Golden Globes! It has been quite a ride for Jane and her family, and the best is yet to come. With new ideas already in the works, stay tuned for more fabulous and innovative products to come…..


The Brag Company generously sent me 3 items for review!


The first adorable item was the Bra Bag in Emily. This scrumptious Bra Bag satisfies every woman's taste - in dark chocolate brown, polka dots and peppermint pink frill. I absolutely love the design! I used the Bra Bagwhen going away for a long weekend and my bra’s were not squished, dented or creased! No more ruining my expensive bras!


The second item I received was the Panty Pak in Emily. A handy travel bag that zips shut and helps keep you organized wherever you go! It's lightweight, soft and compact with two inside zippered pockets to keep your "clean" and "not so clean" panties in their respective spots! The 'panties' on the outside of the bag are also pockets for additional storage space. The Emily is chocolate brown with multi pink polka dots with velvet pink frill and trim. Scrumptiously delicious… I love love love the idea of the Panty Pak! I mean what a great way to keep your delicates separated! Those of you who travel know just as well as I do that this is a wonderful idea. Couldn’t you kick yourself for not coming up with it yourself???


The third item I received was the Mini Clutch in Katie. Small enough to pack it to go but adorable enough to carry as a handy wristlet. Your Mini Clutch can hold a cell phone, PDA, credit cards, money and your favorite lipstick. For those times when you just want to bring the bare essentials…. grab your Mini Clutch and go out in style! Soooo cute! While the clutch is pretty small, it definitely helped me cut down on what I try to bring out with me. It was the perfect size for my beloved iphone, my credit card, id, some cash and lipgloss! Who needs more than that???

Seventh Generation Review and Giveaway



Seventh Generation is committed to becoming the world's most trusted brand of authentic, safe, and environmentally-responsible products for a healthy home. For 20 years, the closely held Burlington, Vermont-based company has been at the forefront of a cultural change in consumer behavior and business ethics.

One of the country's first self-declared "socially responsible" companies, Seventh Generation is a business that operates according to a new and different set of principles and values that in many ways are a marked departure from those long considered "traditional." Its business practice is focused on offering people avenues to express their idealism, passion, and commitment to causes larger than themselves at every point along its supply chain—from suppliers and partners to shareholders, customers and its own staff.

The company derives its name from the Great Law of the Iroquois that states, "In our every deliberation, we must consider the impact of our decisions on the next seven generations." Every time you use a Seventh Generation product you are making a difference by saving natural resources, reducing pollution, keeping toxic chemicals out of the environment and making the world a safer place for this and the next seven generations.



I have always been skeptical about green cleaning products. I'm just worried that it won't clean as well. When Seventh Generation agreed to send me the Healthy Home Starter Kit, I was just as skeptical as I am with other green products. Boy o boy was I surprised! The Seventh Generation green products clean just as well as other products with harsh chemicals! They have refreshing scents such as Green Mandarin or my favorite, grapefruit! The Healthy Home Starter Kit, includes a little bit of everything to get your house clean; Natural Glass and Surface Cleaner, Natural All-Purpose Cleaner, Toilet Bowl Cleaner, Shower Cleaner,
Tub & Tile Cleaner,
Kitchen Cleaner, Natural Brown Paper Towels - 120 Count and a Reusable Tote.

It's products are available nationally in natural food stores, most supermarkets and select warehouse club stores, as well as internationally.

Amy's uses certified organic ingredients, including vegetables, grains and fruits grown without pesticides. Fats are used sparingly and selectively, all dairy ingredients are made with pasteruized rBST hormone-free milk and do not contain animal enzymes or animal rennet. No dishes contain meat, fish, shellfish, poultry, eggs or peanuts. Amy's products are non-GMO and do not contain hydrogenated fats or oils.


Amy's generously sent me three delicious soups to try along with a super adorable lunch tote!


The first soup I tried was the Hearty Spanish Rice & Red Bean Soup. Amy's Spanish Rice and Red Beans is a robust soup that combines organic brown rice with organic red beans, tomatoes, onions, bell peppers, corn and green chiles. This soup was delicious and tasted very fresh, not like a normal canned soup. It's also organic, gluten-free, and vegan!




The second soup I was able to try is the Organic Chunky Tomato Bisque. We've added tender chunks vine ripened tomatoes to a smooth creamy tomato base to create a full flavored bisque you're sure to enjoy. While I'm not typically a big fan of tomato soup, I really enjoyed this version from
Amy's. I enjoyed this soup with a grilled cheese sandwich this past weekend while snowed in! Scrumptious! Just like the Spanish Rice and Red Beans soup, the Chunky Tomato Bisque is organic and gluten-free.



The third soup I was able to try is the Organic Fire Roasted Southwestern Vegetable Soup. Organic fire roasted corn, onions and green peppers are combined with fresh vegetables and black beans, and mildly seasoned with green chiles and Southwestern spices. I took Amy's. suggestion and enjoyed this with a warm and gooey cheese quesadilla. Yum! Yum! Yum! This was my favorite soup by far!

Amy's products can be purchased at various online retailers including amazon.com.

And now for the GIVEAWAY! One of you will win the three soups mentioned above as well as an adorable lunch tote. This giveaway is open to the USA only!

My Dream Honeymoon...



My dream honeymoon would be somewhere warm and secluded. Maybe a private bungalow right on the water where we can lay on hammocks and just enjoy being man and wife. I'd also love to be able to try snorkeling and have a picnic on the beach at sunset. I think an over-water villa would be perfect. I've heard a place in the Maldives even has an underwater restaurant! How cool! Being able to enjoy your meal while random fish swim by, is so interesting to me. Really anywhere would be perfect as long as I celebrated being man and wife :)

What do you think would be the perfect honeymoon?

Grill Charms Review and Coupon Code!


Grill Charms™ bring you the fabulous new way of distinguishing between spices and flavors when grilling outdoors! I found out about Grill Charms™ while watching a recent episode of Abc’s Shark Tank.Besides Abc’s Shark Tank, they have been featured numerous times on CNBC's The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch, 'Daytime' with Dave Nemeth and Cyndi Edwards, Inventor's Digest Magazine, Parenting Magazine, Health Magazine, Charleston Home Magazine, Fancy Food and Culinary Products Magazine, Tailgator Monthly, NBC's Chicago Affiliate Channel 5 news, and NBC Augusta news in the morning.


Grill Charms™ are dime-sized solid stainless steel charms that are placed in food BEFORE grilling. The serrated stem holds the charm securely while flipping, moving and grilling food like you normally do. Grill Charms™ your food PRIOR to cooking to distinguish spices and flavors, steak temperatures, or to avoid health or allergy issues. When dinner comes off the grill, everyone knows which one is theirs. They are not only the hottest grilling accessory of the season, but with four fantastic collections to choose from Grill Charms™ make the perfect gift for any occasion! A new trend is the "season your own" cook-out. This is where the host provides the meat; the guests pick their Grill Charm and choose from a variety of sauces or rubs that the host has set out. Guests flavor their meat any way they wish and nobody, including the grill master needs to know or care how it's seasoned. When food is brought to the table, guests simply look for their Grill Charm. With folks watching every penny, it’s even more important then ever that when people splurge on buying that beef tenderloin filet, or carefully choose that chicken breast to spend their hard earned money on, that it's cooked and seasoned exactly the way they want it.

* No more cutting into 5 steaks to try to find the rare one
* No more offering only mild BBQ because too few guests like it spicy
* No more confusion with health or allergy concerns
* Serrated to stay in securely while grilling, flipping and moving
* Stress free grilling for grill master and guests
* Works with Burgers, Chicken, Steak, Pork, Fish and more!




Grill Charms™ are the perfect gift for Father's Day, Birthdays, Groomsman, Christmas, Valentine's Day, Housewarming or Hostess gift ... you name it! When going to those 4th of July and summer time Cook-outs, bring the host a box of Grill Charms™ instead of that same old bottle of wine.

Grill Charms™ come in a variety of different collections, whether it be The Spicy Collection, to distinguish between mild, medium and spicy rubs and sauces, or the The Steak Collection, to distinguish between Rare and Well done and all the variations in between! With all these types of Grill Charms™ you know you’re bound to find one for everyone. And at only $19.95, Grill Charms™ are the perfect gift for Father's Day, Birthdays, Groomsman, Christmas, Valentine's Day, Housewarming or Hostess gift ... you name it!


Please keep in mind The Pink Collection. Grill Charms™ donates 10% of the proceeds to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. The owner of Grill Charms™ , Leslie, and her mother were both diagnosed with breast cancer in their thirties. Leslie has two daughters of her own, so I'm sure you can understand the sense of urgency she feels to find a cure.

Grill Charms™ also does custom orders. Grill Charms™ can put any logo and tag line on the box and they make great customer or employee appreciation gifts. They are a truly unique premium incentive/giveaway/ promotional type product. The minimum for a custom order is 1000 and it takes about 90 days.

And now for the COUPON CODE! Grill Charms™ has generously offered to provide an ongoing coupon code for $5.00 off! Simply use coupon code Peaches to receive $5.00 off bringing the price down to $14.95! You can’t beat that!!

My Romantic High School Memory – Inspired By ‘High School Reunion’

Hmmmm..... a romantic high school memory.

I guess it would have to be when my boyfriend at the time, surprised me by making my dinner at his parent's house. He made it by himself, set the table, and had candles lit. Despite the fact that the steak was burnt and the german potato salad was more like vinegary mashed potatoes, he took the time and effort to put it all together and surprise me. That to me means more than having a high quality dinner at any fancy restaurant.

Watch a memorable episode of High School Reunion on TV Land - Wednesdays at 10p/9! Click here for more info: http://awe.sm/44DB7

I have been hired by Warner Bros WB Word division to raise awareness for TV Land's High School Reunion.

The Perfect Proposal?

So, what do you deem to be the perfect proposal? For me, I think it would have to be somewhere quiet where we are alone. I'd love for my significant other to come up with something creative like a poem etc to show that he put time and effort into it. For our 3 year anniversary on January 28th, my boyfriend made me a video and wrote me a song. The video started with "It's been 3 years and it's only the beginning..." with video of a sunrise from the cruise we went on last year. The video then went on to show a variety of different pictures of us since the day we met. He showed it me when we were at a quiet romantic restaurant and I weeped all over the table! To me, this would have been the perfect way to propose had we had intentions on marrying.

After viewing all the proposals of the entrants to Essences "Will you marry me?" contest, I decided I liked the way Gabriel proposed to Jasmine. While they weren't in a quiet place, I loved that he wrote that adorable poem to her and read it aloud. He really put time and thought into it which to me is important. Please be sure to check out the video below.











So, tell me what you think would be the perfect proposal?

Wishes and Kisses Review and Giveaway



In 2008, Sandra Magsamen's Wishes and Kisses brand debuted nationwide at Wal-Mart. The mission of the collection is to surround our little ones with hope, joy, dreams, and love. With bright colors, soft fabrics and bold prints, her newborn apparel collection, gifts, and accessories echo the inspiring messages which define her adult line. The lifestyle baby brand, which includes specially designed packaging promises heartfelt items with uplifting words and whimsical illustrations for the youngest gifts in our lives. Each piece of the collection encourages snuffling, smiles and comfort, all the things that make wishes come true and babies happy.


Sandra Magsamen graciously provided me with two adorable baby outfits to review. The first was a super soft little boys outfit. (Shown to the left) This little outfit is soft like a blanket. Among the precious blue and white stripes is a little green turtle with the saying "Shell We Play? How clever!


The second item I received was for a little girl. (shown to the right) The outfit is just as soft as the little boys and is a bright sunshiny yellow. I love that it's a bright yellow with the black and white plaid trim. The best part of both little outfits... they are sold at Wal-Mart for only $8.50! Perfect for moms on a budget!

A little about Sandra:


Sandra Magsamen is a modern-day Renaissance woman who has touched millions of people, one heart at a time. Her products have been warmly embraced worldwide for 20 years. As an artist, art therapist, mom, award-winning author of Living Artfully and the creator of the lifestyle brands Messages from the Heart™, Wishes & Kisses and From the Studio of Sandra Magsamen, Sandra uses her own creativity and spirit to fashion gifts and collections that help people express themselves and connect with others. Sandra reminds and teaches us to explore and experience each day with more heart, meaning, purpose and joy.

As an art therapist, Sandra met individuals whose words failed to express what was in their hearts and minds. Working with Alzheimer's patients, deaf children, criminally insane men and troubled adolescents, she witnessed the extraordinarily diverse and creative ways they expressed themselves and attempted to connect with the people in their lives. In 1987, Sandra began creating her own art in her kitchen, designing ceramic, heart-shaped tokens and plaques to commemorate the varied experiences and inspirations embedded in everyday life. She created a collection of pottery for her newborn daughter as a gift of life lessons. This gift became the essence of her life work, and Messages from the Heart was born.

In response to a growing demand for her handmade originals, Sandra founded Table Tiles, Inc., her handmade gift company in 1991, which, in less than a decade, expanded into a multimillion-dollar gift business. In 1997, she began licensing her ideas. Since then, she has designed successful collections with significant licensees including: Corel, Creative Imaginations; Department 56; Glitterati; Hamco; Kids Line; Lenox, Little Brown; Peking Handicraft; Rashti & Rashti, Rizzoli USA; PBS; Scholastic; Simon & Schuster's Free Press; Stewart, Tabori & Chang; Sunrise Greetings; Triboro and Topsville. She was nominated in 2006, 2007 and 2008 for the prestigious LIMA International Licensing Awards as Best Art Brand License of the Year and Overall Best License of the Year by the International Licensing Industry Merchandisers' Association.

Sandra Magsamen's Messages from the Heart plaque sales have topped tens of millions. Every minute, four Messages from the Heart gifts are sold. Messages from the Heart products include gift items, home décor, jewelry, seasonal, furniture, stationery, kitchen, baby gifts, plush, bedding, accessories, scrapbooking materials and greeting cards and are available in specialty stores as well as departments stores across the country. In 2008, Sandra debuted the launch of Messages from the Heart BABY at JCPenney, a new infant lifestyle brand, and her Wishes & Kisses brand at Wal-Mart. From the Studio of Sandra Magsamen, a Wal-Mart–exclusive gift boutique, made its debut in 2009. Want to read more?

Pamela's Products Review and Giveaway


When we think of bakeries we dream of the delicious treats of childhood, of cakes and frosting, cookies and pies… but for me it was awful tasting allergy cookies and heavy whole grain breads. My grandparents started one of the first health food stores (and bakery) in San Francisco. Growing up in the Health Food Industry, I was given the “weird” food to take to school by way of heavy, nutty breads and small, dry health food cookies or with carob instead of chocolate. No one wanted to trade food with me!

I spent my summers in my family’s bakery, packing rice and soy cookies for people with special dietary needs. Although these dry, tasteless cookies were in high demand, they were not particularly appetizing. At a young age, I could relate to those who had to eat these “weird” foods. I imagined life with food allergies and without the joys a great chocolate chip cookie. I pondered my own enjoyment of cookies and food and contemplated what life would be like if all I could eat were the rice and soy cookies I packed everyday. I suggested making the wheat-free and gluten-free cookies taste better, but I was told that “the allergy people were fine and happy to have something”. Back then the Health Food Industry was much less interested in taste. Health food was known to be dry, hard, and crumbly but always nutritious.

In 1988, after college I left the family business to start my own independent company founded on the premise that wheat-free and gluten-free foods can taste great and that everyone should have food delicious enough to celebrate. My company, Pamela’s Products, continues to lead the industry with award winning decadent and delicious gluten-free foods.

Much has changed since those days; Health Food, is now called Natural Food and most people are concerned about nutrition and taste equally. Although my company is part of the Natural Food Industry I have always strived for something better, something different. I have always insisted on eye catching, brightly colored labels instead of the dreary packaging of the day, I was the first to use real butter when everyone else was using oil, and today I lead the pack by insisting on the finest ingredients such as imported European Dark Chocolate and true crystallized ginger for my most delectable treats.

Pamela’s Products has had a far reaching impact on the gluten-free food market and the Natural Food Industry. I love what I do and everyone I’ve met along the way. I continue to take pleasure in finding new flavor combinations and creating tasty new products to celebrate with friends. I hope you enjoy my products too!



Pamela’s Products generously provided me with a box of Spicy Ginger Cookies to review. These cookies were absolutely scrumptious! I have always been a big fan of Sweetzel’s Ginger Snaps at Christmas time, but these were sooooo much better. They are a soft cookie rather than the hard snap cookies and they had the perfect amount of spice! Yummmy!! I’m almost embarrassed to say that my boyfriend and I nearly devoured them in one sitting! Probably not the best idea, but they were sooooo good! Don’t worry, you’ll be able to relate when you order a box of your own! If you don’t like ginger cookies, they sell a large variety of cookies, biscotti, baking mixes, cheesecakes and cakes. There is something for everyone!

And now for the GIVEAWAY! One of you will win one a box of Spicy Ginger cookies! This giveaway is open to the USA only!
