Rocket Fishing Rod by Goliath Games Review




My family and I love to fish. My husband and I like to go out and just fish for fun. Well for me it is fun. For him, he really enjoys actually catching and eating his catch. With a five and two year old, it can be a bit hard to fish. We recently went out as a family to try and fish. My five year old had a small standard pole, my youngest had my older sons small character pole. He had the hardest time trying to figure out how to cast, even with help he was getting so frustrated. He ended up throwing the whole pole over the side of the boat twice. The second time there was no catching it. The pole was gone forever. My oldest son was so upset, that was his favorite pole. So I knew we needed to figure out something cool for him to use while we go fishing.




I was so excited to see the Rocket Fishing Launcher. We have seen the commercials for these. My son has been wanting one. I was so happy to be given the chance to try it. Instead of a standard caster, the Rocket Fishing Launcher is so much easier for a child to use. You simply cock it, push the safety in and shoot it. When you feel your fish on, you reel it in. It really can make fishing fun. Or even competitive if you are an adult using it. Seeing who can shoot it the furthest. With the safety bobber, you don't have to worry about your kids putting a hook through their hands. Or in our case, almost through their little brothers hands.




It didn't take long for my oldest to get the hang of this at all. It really helped with the frustrations of him not being able to cast so well with an average pole. It wasn't a perfect shot every time, but it did work quite well I feel. My kids loved being able to have a little fun with fishing, and all of us were taking turns with it. I love that it is already pre-loaded with line, so you don't have a lot of set up, and can get right out to fish.

Fix N Zip Review






Last fall I thought I had everything set for my son for school. I bought him a coat, and he outgrew it before winter could even hit. I had to rush around to find him a new coat quick. I ended up finding what I thought was a super nice second hand coat. I was told the zipper worked perfectly. And since the stores were empty of his size of jackets I didn't have a choice in the matter. After the first day I put him in it for school, he came home saying it wouldn't work. So I had to figure out another solution. What I didn't realize when I bought his coat. One tooth is missing in his zipper, which essentially made the coat useless. I eventually found yet another coat, which my son hates. He always wants to wear the first coat I got him with the messed up zipper. I have been searching for a solution ever since.



I was so excited to find FixnZip. I was a bit optimistic on if changing to the FixnZip zipper would actually fix the problem, since from what I could see, the problem was in the teeth of the zipper. I read the directions, and had my husband remove the old zipper with a pair of pliers. Then, as directed, I simply attached the FixnZip zipper and screwed down the thumb screw and had my son come put the coat on. Sure enough, it worked perfectly.  FixnZip comes in nickel and dark nickel to help you match to what you need. They also come in three different sizes. You can use FixnZip on anything that has a zipper. My husband was so excited when he found out this worked, and we ended up fixing a few pairs of pants that he had broke the zipper on when we first bought them, and they have been sitting around ever since. Success every single time.


I love that you can find the FixnZip in Joann Fabrics, as well as online. If you would like to order for yourself, please click here.

Rosewill Airfryer Review






My husband and I have always had a love for fried foods. We have always owned a traditional deep fryer. With us on our way to a healthy new lifestyle, we gave it away to family. Until the day I received the Rosewill Airfryer, I was using the oven to bake fries, chicken nuggets, "fried" chicken. Every time, I could not seem to get all sides of my food crispy. It drove me nuts.



My husband and I have actually been researching and discussing purchasing an airfryer for the past year or so. But with that, comes  a lot of questions. Which one is going to work best for us? Which one is a decent price? How do we know we are going to actually like it? Even when I first received this, I was talking to my mom about it and she was asking questions and wanting me to let her know if it is actually worth it. Or if it was just hype.




When I had the chance to check out the Rosewill Airfryer, I can't even begin to explain how excited I was. I finally would get to know exactly what this was all about. I have heard of so many things that you can make in airfryers. And I just needed to know for myself. The day I received it was actually grocery shopping day. So I loaded up on all things that I have missed about having a deep fryer. I loaded up on fries, chicken nuggets, tater tots, chicken wings, and even bacon and sausage. And told my husband for dinner we were trying this airfryer out.




The first thing I wanted to try and make was pizza rolls. They are a family favorite, but we don't eat them very often. Microwaving them, leaves them mushy. Baking them never gets them completely crispy on the outside. We used to deep fry them, but without a deep fryer we just stopped having them completely. So, I decided why not? I through some in the basket, and was amazed on easy it was to set everything up for timing and temperature. I only had to put them in for about 10 minutes, stopping half way through to give the basket a little shake. And they came out perfect. Later on in the night, my husband was so excited about trying it for himself. He decided bone in chicken wings were on his snack menu. He looked up recommendations for temperatures and I let him start on his own.


Now, he didn't let me take a picture of his finished product as I was putting the kids to bed. But even he was happy on how much less time it took to make the chicken wings. And they were crispy, and tasty. I love that there is the crisp of fried foods, but without the grease of using a deep fryer. We ended up using it for our breakfast for dinner night. He wanted to try bacon and sausage. I was busy in the basement, so he set it up on his own and started it. I love that you can make bacon in it, without having bacon grease hitting your arms while it is cooking. After, I just washed everything out by hand. I did read that it is dishwasher safe, but I did not want to take chances with my new baby.


We have used this at least 5 times a week since we have received it. Not only does the food taste so great, I love seeing what oil comes out of your food. That isn't just sitting on a baking sheet when you are cooking it, soaking up back into your food.

Go Gourmet Organic Slammers Review



I am constantly looking for snacks that I can take on the go for my kids. We do a lot of traveling and have a lot of long doctors appointments. So when I was able to check out Organic Slammers, I was super excited. My kids were even more excited when they seen the boxes on the counter and were ready to snack immediately. 


The Chill'n Slammers are actually loved by both my kids. The first afternoon after getting my package in the mail, my kids each downed three of these before dinner time. Chill'n is made with bananas, blueberries, and yumberries. I love that in the ingredients list there is also butternut squash as well as greek yogurt. This is all organic! Which makes me feel better knowing that Go Gourmet is taking the time to make sure my kids are eating safe and healthy foods.




Watermelon Kiwi Burst comes packed with 7 grams of protein. I threw a couple of each flavor in the fridge for my boys. They love watermelon in general, so this was a dream for both of them. I love that we can bring them out with us when we go to the beach or out on the boat fishing. This comes packed with apple, banana, whey protein, and kiwi. I tried this one as well just out of curiosity. It was quite delicious. 






They both have their favorite flavors. Awesome, is a mixture of: Bananas, Blueberries, Strawberries, Beets, Acai, and Amaranth. This one both my kids loved immediately. I tried some of theirs just to test it out. And it really was delicious. You don't taste the earthy flavor of beets at all. It just taste like a fruit sauce. My youngest son who is two actually favored this flavor.



The last flavor we received to try out was Amped. The flavors in this pouch are: Apples Strawberries, Cherries, Chia and Purple Carrot. My oldest LOVES this one. He tries to sneak and get them. And at five has now figured out how to open them alone. I am completely fine with him grabbing for a Slammer Pouch, verses candy or junk food he could be going for. My younger son also enjoyed this flavor. He is just not as much as an apple lover as my oldest.

These have been great for on the go morning snacks. My five year old if he gets up in the middle of the night, and wants to find a late night snack. (It is really five in the morning, but we try to tell him it is still the middle of the night. In hopes to get just a little bit more rest) He has asked for these. I wouldn't leave them in your car in extreme heat or cold, but throw a few in your diaper bag, or take them when you know its going to be a while. The pouch is great and causes much less mess in your car or out and about. If you would like to find out about these flavors, and other great flavors from Organic Slammers, please click here.

Diana's Bananas Review







Growing up, I remember going to the fair and having a chocolate covered banana. It was so good. My older sister and I tried to recreate it, it seems like we could never actually get the process correct. I remember cleaning up some doozy of messes out of my parents freezers. We had to wait every summer to find them at our local fair. I have seen Diana's Bananas in stores and I was so curious on how well that would work. Would they taste like the ones I remember from my childhood? I was so excited to be able to check them out.


Diana's Bananas sent me three different products to try. The first I want to talk about are the Banana Bites. These were the first thing I broke into for myself because they were quick and easy. And I was actually getting ready to make dinner when I started opening everything up. These are the perfect little bite size banana pieces dipped in a mix of milk and dark chocolate. When my husband got home from work, I immediately gave him one. He loved them. He loved them so much that the container was his snack after the kids went to bed that night. They are so easy to just pop in your mouth, and so delicious. A great gluten free treat. 





My kids wanted to try the baby bananas right away, but of course I made them wait until after dinner. I gave my youngest son the Banana Babies Dark Chocolate. He kept telling me it was banana ice cream. I tried it, and it is the perfect amount of dark chocolate over the banana. These are also gluten free. And are the perfect size to be satisfying without being to much. The chocolate doesn't just melt off like ones I have attempted in the past. I tried a bite of his, and it was delicious.



My oldest son tried the Milk Chocolate Banana Babies after dinner. He was amazed that you could just freeze a banana. We have spotted these in a few stores local to us, and even though we already have some in our freezer it does not stop my oldest from asking for more. I love that these are a great frozen treat, and are healthier then all the ice cream's and Popsicle's my kids usually have. This is a great alternative. I also think that these would be great for kids who have a problem with eating their fruits and vegetables.

Grand Infusions Housewares Review







I am a lover of all kitchen gadgets. I feel like I need to own all of
them! And I use all of them. I am a self proclaimed professional tester of all gadgets. So when I had the chance to check out some things from Grand Infusions, I was so excited to put them to the test.




I have a family of corn on the cob eaters. We all love our corn. My kids will eat two to three pieces in one sitting. We usually have corn on the cob two times a week minimum in the summer. The worst part about corn on the cob, buttering it! I end up buttering at minimum 6 pieces of corn each time we have it. I have tried the butter knife to butter it. I end up using way to much butter on it, and making a huge mess. I even have put butter on the plate and spin it a little at a time. Which makes an even bigger mess, and is a HUGE waste of butter. When I made corn, I tried the Butter Once knife, and I can't even begin to explain how great this knife was. You can use it with stick butter, or butter in a tub. You can easily pick up how much you need. And like a quick assembly line, I was in business with getting all ears of corn buttered and plated quickly. Butter Once knife has a unique curved stainless steel blade. This conforms perfectly to the corn. To order one for yourself, please click here.


I will admit. I hate peeling vegetables. I have a few peelers in my drawer, and some don't work the way I want them too. Some work only a certain direction, which is never the way most comfortable for me. This Tri-blade peeler, not only has a great handle. It has three different blades for peeling which are:

  • Standard Swivel- for precision peeling
  • Serrated Blade-for soft skin fruits
  • Julienne Blade- for making decorative garnishes
This has a tip to help take out the eyes in potatoes. And, the best part: It's my favorite color! 



Summer time in my house, we go through so much ice. My entire family loves a lot of ice in our water. My problem is, it melts so fast, it drives me nuts. This 6 piece ice mold is a great silicone mold, which is typically used for whiskey and bourbon, but works great to keep any drink cold. Before I received it, I was a little nervous on how you would actually make an ice ball. I figured I would be making a huge mess of water. The little holes in the tops are perfect for filling. You can also add fruit pieces or other things to make yourself have beautiful gourmet ice balls. I love that these take much less time to melt. My kids think they are so cool. And even my ice eating dog thought this was fun to play fetch with during a heat wave. They are dishwasher safe, and you can stack them, which makes it great to save space in the freezer. If you would like to order a set for yourself, please click here.


I despise cans, and jars. I always have felt no matter the tool I use to get everything out, I am wasting some of it. It drives me nuts. I have used a regular spatula, a large and even a small spoon. And it seems like no matter what you do, you can never get everything out of the can. I have tried all different tricks over the years. So, when I seen the One Twist Can Spatula, I knew it was a must have. I make sandwiches and wraps everyday for my husband. I hate trying to get the last bit of mayo out of the jar. This was the first thing I needed to try it out on. I got enough out of the jar for an extra two sandwiches! I was so happy. This spatula has become my new favorite thing. I find myself using it at least twice a day while making different things. If you would like to order one for yourself, please click here.





I will be honest, I have always had quite the collection of cleaners and things that I have locked away from my kids. I can't even tell you how many times in my 13 years of being on my own that I have had a spill under my sink. I have tried to put all sorts of things under there to help with spills and leaks, nothing has helped. This Under Sink Shelf Guard is a total game changer. I cleaned out under my sink (long over do, I may add) and had to wipe everything down. My current "protector" was a mat used to dry dishes. Which did nothing. This was so easy to lay out. This fit almost perfect under my sink. I did have to trim it just a little to have it lay flat. It was so easy to trim down. I love how nice it looks, and how easy it is to wipe up anything.

Angel Krunch Review



With my family and I looking to move toward healthier foods. One of our major issues is breakfast time. We are cereal eaters. We eat it for breakfast, snacks. It is even my kids go to when they don't like something we are having for dinner. Or even when they still feel hungry after dinner. My problem, as well as my families is that we like the sweet stuff. And with that sweet stuff, it typically means high sugars. And cereals that are just overall not good for you. We have always looked for alternatives, but I can never find one that is sweet enough to satisfy our sweet tooth.




Angel Krunch has pulled through, with a sweet but healthy cereal. They have two different flavors. And of course when they boxes arrived, my husband had to test it out to see if it was going to be good or not. He started by trying the Triple Chocolate. Now, with Angel Krunch, if you order online you do have to order by the case. But at $26.00 for a case of 8. That is only costing you $3.25 a box. Which compared to many other cereals in the aisle, really is a great deal. Another great thing I think about Angel Krunch cereals, they are super filling. So you don't need a lot to fill your tummy. And best of all, they are super delicious. The Triple Chocolate has little bits of chocolate in with the granola pieces. And it gives it the perfect amount of chocolate flavor to curb your craving. I love that there is 3g of fiber per serving. It is also made with Non-GMO grains. And the flavor is out of this world. I talked to my husband about making breakfast bars for him to be able to take on his way to work in the morning. My boys had this in their yogurt this morning, and loved the crunch!





The cereal that made me the most nervous to try was their Flaxseeds, Walnuts, Pecans, Sesame, and Hazelnuts option. I was worried that it would not have any sweetness to it at all. I was so wrong. This cereal has the perfect amount of sweet to it. And so many nuts. I was so happy about that. Cereals I have tried in the past that were supposed to be filled with nuts, would always have such a small amount. Where I would maybe have a sliver or two in my bowl. Angel Krunch understands how to make you feel like you are getting a great deal of nuts. My husbands only complaint about this was a few flaxseeds that were floating in the water, but it wasn't anything to bad. This is also great in some vanilla yogurt. I love both cereals very much. And I am so glad that my whole family does too.

BodyArmor Review and Giveaway!





I couldn't of received BODYARMOR drinks at a better time. My family had all just went through the stomach flu, all of us were dehydrated. And my sons were having a problem getting drinks that they wanted to put into their bodies. I said, "Pick from one of these." So each child picked a different flavor. Before I let them have any I decided to taste test. I wanted to know what was going in their bodies. 




I definitely expected BODYARMOR to be like any typical "sports drink" that you can buy from the gas station. I was so surprised when I tasted each of my kids drinks. They don't taste the same. "Sports drinks" from the gas station always have left a film in my mouth. These tasted so much better, there was no gross film left in my mouth. No colored tongues from all the artificial colors added to the drink. BODYARMOR is naturally sweet, naturally flavored, and has no added dyes to it. So it is naturally delicious.







I have tried almost every flavor now. My kids ask for this rather then the juice or asking for "pop" which is what they call koolaid. I feel so much better having this in the house for the family to drink rather then having them drink all the artificial sugars and flavors. 






My husband works in construction, and a lot of the guys that he works with drink these. So I decided to ask them what it is about BODYARMOR that they love so much. They said not only are the flavors great. They love that they are good for you, and with such a selection in flavors, you never get sick of them. Even the grown men, picky to not picky can appreciate every flavor that BODYARMOR has. 









BODYARMOR has also recently came out with their BODYARMOR Lyte. These drinks only have 20 calories and 3 grams of sugar per serving. Yet, they still have the same great taste. I personally love these. With trying every flavor, I still have yet to find a flavor I do not like. 








The worst part, if you only buy one at a time, expect for it to go fast. My kids will steal mine constantly. And if my husband sees me set it down, he will also chug it down.

Kay's Naturals Gluten Free Review





As part of my family's journey to get healthy, we have started trying to eat more gluten free options to help our waist lines a bit. The problem is, some of the gluten free options we have tried are just not good. We end up wasting a lot of it, because we will try it, and no one will eat any of it. So trying Kay's Naturals I was a bit concerned we were going to have that same problem. 

I received my 3 day meal plan package in the mail. I love the idea of being able to just grab and go. We lead rather busy lives, and sometimes I just don't have the time to be able to sit down and have something healthy. Especially in the morning. I also feel like this is a great way to be able to try a mass amount of different things from Kay's Naturals, without spending a bunch of money to try each thing. This way, you will know what you do and don't care for as much. So you can make larger purchases. All while having perfect portions. 

This package includes one of each of the following: 
  • Honey Almond Cereal
  • French Vanilla Cereal 
  • Apple Cinnamon Cereal
  • Almond Delight Puffs
  • Mac & Cheese Puffs
  • Veggie Pizza Puffs

  • Jalapeno Honey Mustard Pretzels
  • Lemon Herb Protein Chips
  • Chili Nacho Protein Chips
  • Crispy Parmesan Protein Chips

  • Cinnamon Cookie Bites
  • Kruncheeze
  • BBQ Snack Mix. 




Kay's Naturals has set out to change the way you think about gluten free snacking. Their food is much better then most I have tried. I didn't feel like there was one thing in this box that wasn't edible to my standards. I enjoyed being able to try so many different things. I think my favorite were the cinnamon toast pretzels. They were a really great change up.
