Great Gift for Easter Baskets BESIDES Candy

With Easter fast approaching I thought I'd share a a great alternative to candy

BOOKS!! Here are a few new titles from Sky Pony Press


Gorillas in Our Midst is a humorous picture book for kids aged 3 to 6. It’s a great read aloud book for schools and at home. Sometimes you simply need a funny story to read together and this one, without any definitive message, will make story time a time of giggles for both adults and children!

 

Fans of Divergent, The Hunger Games, and The City of Ember will not be disappointed by The LoudnessThis stunning, fast-paced, punk-rock dystopian middle grade novel will propel young readers into another world where superheroes emerge from the unlikeliest people.Henry and his new renegade friends are forced from the colorful streets and underground rock clubs of the Other Side to an overcrowded capital city on the verge of collapse. As Henry uncovers more about the conflicting forces that run his corner of the world, he realizes that not everyone is who they seem to be—himself included—and recognizes that his artificial heart may turn out to be more of a blessing than a curse.



 

Trouble in Zombie-town: The Mystery of Herobrine, An Unofficial Minecrafter’s Adventure  is the fourth book in the hugely popular Gameknight999 series but the first in the The History of Herobrine arc. While many favorite characters are back, they will be embarking on different exciting adventures and meeting brand new friends and foes.When one of his father’s inventions went haywire, Gameknight999 found himself sucked into and trapped in the world of Minecraft. After returning to the real world, Gameknight vowed to never return to Minecraft. But when his little sister, Monet113, accidently enters the game herself, he finds himself once again entering a digital world where real danger lies around every corner.

New Product #Review:Alpina All-Stars Yogurt

Last month Alpina Yogurt launched their new Alpina NBA All-Stars Yogurt. One of the few male/tween focused products in the dairy aisle and the only NBA
 All-Star yogurt on the market. My little man loves yogurt as an after-school snack, he was beyond HAPPY to give these a taste test. Received two 
thumbs up!! 



WHY YOGURT TOPS THE FOOD CHAIN.
There are numerous benefits of Alpina NBA All-Stars yogurt, which include:
·      B vitamins for sustained energy throughout the day
·      170mg of potassium - a key electrolyte
·      10% of your daily-recommended calcium intake to promote growth and build strong bones
·      Good source of Vitamin D to help your body absorb the calcium
·    Four grams of protein to build and sustain muscle as well as to help with fat burn
·      21g of carbs to give energy throughout the day
·      Low calorie and low fat treat for morning, day or night



 














`



Although the target focus is for the males I've got  a few ladies who love mixing themselves up a bowl too. Each yogurt comes with an extra treat, Cookies ‘n Cream, chocolate mini gems, and OUR FAVORITE Dunkers (white chocolate covered rice balls.) Just dunk’em in, mix’em up and enjoy, or eat them separately. Every box comes with a cool NBA sticker to collect.





















Alpina NBA All-Stars Yogurt is  sold in select regional and independent stores including A&P, Pathmark, Waldbaum's, Wegmans,Super Fresh, The Food Emporium, ShopRite, Shaw's, and Lowe's Markets. The suggested retail price of $2.99 - $3.29. Coming soon to select Walmarts.

NOT YOUR AVERAGE CORNED BEEF AND CABBAGE #FOODIE

Corned Beef and Cabbage is THE traditional dish for St Patty's day but I love
serving it with a  twist:


Slow-Cooked Irish Cabbage Rolls

Slow-Cooked Irish Cabbage Rolls


Permeate your home with the scent of corned beef rolled into cabbage leaves as you warm up this tender, meaty meal with an Irish twist in your crock-pot. A tomato sauce with the tang of lemons and soy sauce plus the sweetness of brown sugar brings the dish together


Corned Beef and Slaw Sandwiches


Corned Beef Slaw Sandwich - Linda Larsen

This easy and savory sandwich combines corned beef and cabbage in a new way. Use Dill Coleslaw, or buy some from the deli



Corned Beef and Pickled Red Cabbage



This twist happens to me my family's favorite

 Corned Beef with mustard, pickled cabbage, mint, and hazelnut maple syrup


We end the meal with a delicious Rainbow dessert my daughter has made.
Like these RAINBOW COOKIES!



DO YOU MAKE YOUR MEAL WITH A TWIST OR STICK WITH TRADITION??

FSL Xylem #Review




 If you have teens you know they love their music... I'm pretty  open to all sort of music but there are times I don't feel like hearing the newest song 100Xs in a row. That when I insist my kids put their ear buds in. 


Eco-friendly construction

 you can do your bit to save the earth with these premium quality wooden earphones. Wood offers several advantages over plastics and metal and that is why it is used in the construction of premium, high end speakers and musical instruments.
This is the top reason I was excited to try these out. Our family has been looking for more ways we can do our part to be green.

Powerful vibrant sound with naturally enhanced bass
The wooden chamber of the FSL Xylem is designed specifically to reflect bass frequencies and yet absorb high frequencies. The result is a powerful bass sound with a fine detailed high end. Only a wooden chamber can provide this natural acoustic effect and the Xylem has been fine tuned to high definition audio standards.
And as you know as of late IT'S ALL ABOUT THAT BASS!!!




Control your music and calls
A discreet integrated microphone and remote put you in complete control of your music and calls. Play, pause, skip track, previous track as well as answer and end call at the touch of the button without reaching for your phone. 
Note: track controls may not be compatible with all devices

I think the microphone control was what my daughter liked the most

Compatibility
The FSL Xylem is universally compatible to work with all audio devices with a 3.5mm socket - that means just about anything portable like your smartphone, tablet or iPod etc.
Lifetime customer service and 3 year warranty
