Celebrate Leap Day with Rice Krispies Frog Recipe

leapdayfrogs

I have been waiting for a good excuse to test out Kellogg's gluten free Rice Krispies. They taste the same, but are made with whole grain brown rice . My kids are always mesmerized when I buy a new kind of cereal. With limited options of mostly boring boxes i.e. no characters, Rice Krispies appeared to be especially entertaining for them. Ingredients & Supplies 1/2 c. butter 12 c. marshmallows green food dye 1 box Gluten Free  Rice Krispies (11 cups) red fruit rollups, diagonally cut into strips white chocolate chips writing icing (I used cake mate) frog cookie cutter frosting (optional for "gluing" eyes) Directions Melt butter over low heat.

straw_world_2_editedfinal_logo

1000 Free Glass Straws for Earth Day 2012 They say that nothing is free… but if there is a price for us to live on this Planet together, it is simply to care for this place we all call “Home”. Earth Day 2012 brings this simple truth to the forefront of our activities. The celebrations keep us mindful of how our choices affect our environment. Each Earth Day marks another year that we move closer toward environmental awareness, making better choices and achieving advancement in our collective efforts toward Planet Care. Each year, GlassDharma marks this occasion by giving away free Glass Straws! What better way to “teach” the idea of “re-use” than to give an everyday, commonly used item to someone who never thought about their habits of “throwing away” drinking straws after each use. “There are still many people out there who do not realize how many reusable choices there are. It is now easier than ever to replace throw away items with quality reusable products”, remarks Cheryl … [Read more...]

NeriumAD Age-Defying Skin Care: What a difference a few days made

IMG_1682

 I am approaching 30 this year.  Not old necessarily, but old enough to notice I'm not a teenager anymore.  I was blessed with fairly clear complexion throughout my teen years.  Even when I got pregnant with each child, my hormones were relatively forgiving to me.  I may not have been as religious about sunblock until I was a responsible mother of fair-skinned children. However, 29 is a whole different story.  I have never really been one for makeup.  I like to have fun with eye liner, eye shadow, and the occasional night out with bright red lips, but overall I just like to flaunt my natural beauty. About NeriumAD Finally, a product that provides the satisfaction of real results with the confidence of real science. NeriumAD Age-Defying Treatment is a night cream developed from the patent-pending extract of the Nerium oleander plant. NeriumAD contains the most effective age-defying ingredients, chosen for both their individual and synergistic benefits. These premium ingredients … [Read more...]
