Betty Crocker Shake-n-Pour Baking Mixes Review

Have you tried the new Betty Crocker Shake-n-Pour Baking mixes on the shelves at your local grocery?  I have...but I was leery of trying them.  I was scared that they would taste fake at best. Today, I had a kid's party to host and I decided, what better time to whip out these brownies. In about 1 minute, I was pouring the brownie batter into the pan!  I put them in to the convection oven (I love the 8x8 pan size of these bottles, because I can use my Toaster Oven/Convection … [Read more...]

ID Gum From Kraft Review

Wow the reach of modern technology and the power it can give us sometimes.  For instance if you will remember a couple of weeks I had a rant about ID gum and this week here I am writing about them.  I must start this review by stating that during my rant it was pointed out by a reader what the intention of the commercial was really about and why some might find it funny.  I still don't find it funny but I can see both sides of the story now.  That has allowed me to be able to write this … [Read more...]

Yoplait 100 Calorie Greek Yogurt Review & Giveaway

What is truly the difference between regular yogurt and Greek yogurt? Regular yogurt is strained twice, while Greek yogurt is strained three times to remove more whey (leaving a thicker consistency). The benefits of Greek yogurt and the extra straining process is that you will have a richer and creamier taste which I quickly learned once opening Yoplait Greek 100.  Can you believe this was my first experience with Greek yogurt?  I find it hard to believe as my children are part of the 28% … [Read more...]

Nielsen-Massey Vanillas Review and Giveaway

As most of you probably know by now - I'm not the world's greatest cook.  I don't seem to have a natural knack for it, but I do enjoy trying.  In spite of being a mediocre cook (or maybe because of it), I've discovered that I'm a little bit of an ingredient snob.  In my experience, the better the ingredients, the better the end product.  This holds true in all of my cooking endeavors, but it is especially true when I bake.  For instance, about a month ago I tried to back cookies using … [Read more...]
