EZSOX Review & GIVEAWAY

The "I Can Do It!" sox


The unique EZSox design makes a great training sock for little ones. J wants to do everything for himself and putting on his socks and shoes is no exception. He's been good at putting on his socks but needs help making them straight. When you wear all white socks it makes it hard to know which way is up.

Cute animal faces act as a guide, showing kids which way is up. Reinforced loops give tiny fingers a strong grip for pulling over tiny toes and non-skid bottoms make EZ SOX safer on slippery surfaces. EZSox are even made seamless for sensitive little toes.

EXSox come in a variety of cute animals and solid colors so your little ones can choose their favorites. We were able to review both the green frog and brown teddy bear designs. J was so excited to see the frog because his favorite color is green. He couldn't wait to put the socks on himself. The loops made it easy for him to pull them on. He was able to know which way was up thanks to the frog's face. I didn't have to straighten them out for him. It may not sound like much but one less thing for me to do as we're rushing out the door makes a world of difference. It's also a nice bonus that the socks are nice and soft.



One lucky Oh My Baby reader will WIN their choice of EZSox. Simply leave your comment by 11:59pm EST on Jan 18, 2011. US addresses only please

Kringle-Spiced Pringles Cookie Review

Consider mixing-up your traditional holiday cookie batch this year with a recipe using Pringles crisps. Below is an original recipe for Kringle-Spiced Pringles Cookies, created by professional Chef Kyle Shadix. This sandwich cookie combines the savory crunch of Pringles Original Potato crisps with a sweet and zesty jam to create a winning substitute for the boring ginger cookie

Kringle-Spiced Pringles Cookies by Chef Kyle Shadix

Yield: 2 dozen sandwich cookies

1 can Pringle's "The Original"

1 cup all-purpose flour

· 1 teaspoon baking soda

· 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

· 1 teaspoon allspice

· 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

· 2 sticks unsalted butter, softened

· 1 cup dark brown sugar, packed

· 1 egg

· 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

· 1 cup fruit preserves, raspberry or mixed berry

· 1/3 cup crystallized ginger, finely chopped



Directions

1. Preheat the oven at to 350 degrees and place Pringles, flour, baking soda, and spices in a food processor, and puree until the consistency of corn meal; set aside.

2. In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar until slightly fluffy.

3. Add the egg and vanilla, and mix for 30 seconds.

4. Pour the Pringles spice mixture into the bowl and mix for 1 minute; place dough in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.

5. Drop by rounded teaspoon onto ungreased baking sheets, and bake for 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown.

6. In a small bowl, combine fruit preserves and ginger (if desired, ginger is optional); spread 1 teaspoon onto a cookie, and top with another cookie. Instead of crystallized ginger can swap out 2 teaspoons of powdered ginger to the jam.

I had the chance to review these Kringle-Spiced Pringles Cookies and I have to say I was very surprised...in a good way. I knew I already loved Pringles and the thought of them in a cookie was pretty strange but I figured why not? They were moist and soft yet had a little crunch from the Pringles. The jam gave it the perfect amount of sweetness. I knew Dear Hubby wouldn't try them if I told him they were made of chips so I offered him some without telling him the surprise ingredient. He liked them and said they reminded him of the holidays because of the spice flavor.

Follow the recipe above and try them for yourselves!

Kix Cereal Review & GIVEAWAY



"When it comes to starting off your day right, a new survey from Kix found that 84 percent of parents turn to cereal with milk for a quick and healthy breakfast.

Cereal is one of the healthiest breakfast choices parents can make. Ready-to-eat cereal has fewer calories than almost any other common breakfast option, while also being nutrient-dense and convenient. In addition, cereal eaters consume less cholesterol and more fiber than non-cereal eaters.

With the same great taste kids have loved for more than 70 years, Kix makes it easy to serve your family a simple and healthy breakfast! Whether you choose to serve Original Kix or Honey Kix, you can be sure that your kids are getting a wholesome food with nutrients they need to grow.

The "Kid-Tested Mother-Approved®"cereal is made with whole grain corn and is an excellent source of iron. It also is a good source of calcium, fiber, and Vitamins C and D. Original Kix has no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives.

To find out more, visit the recently launched Kix website, http://www.kixcereal.com/, featuring background on the history of Kix, nutritional content, and special offers"



My kids were so excited when our review prize pack arrived. It included a 24-piece counting-themed floor puzzle, fun learn-to-count flashcards, a sippy cup, a portable snack container and a box each of Original Kix and Honey Kix cereal. The boys were already fans of Kix cereal but had not tried the Honey Kix Cereal before. They love it! They both like it as a snack without milk too. J was thrilled with the floor puzzle as well. He's put that thing together countless times and he's even nice enough to let L play with it sometimes too.


One random Oh My Baby reader will WIN their own prize pack including all the same items we received. Leave your comment by 11:59 pm EST on December 17th. U.S. addresses only please

Betty Crocker Instant Mashed Potatoes Review & GIVEAWAY

I had a rough afternoon. It started with my own doctor's appointment then L came down with a 103 degree fever. Needless to say, back to the doctor's office. By the time I got home that day, I had less than an hour before Dear Hubby was coming home from work to make dinner. I threw some chicken breasts on the grill but was at a loss for any sides. Luckily I had just received a Betty Crocker gift pack that included two instant mashed potatoes. I normally make mashed potatoes from scratch and that can take some time.

I whipped up the creamy butter flavored instant mashed potatoes. The process was so simple. Boiling the water was the longest step. My potatoes took a little less than 10 mins from start to finish. The potatoes were creamy, buttery and tasted homemade.

Betty Crocker's instant mashed potatoes are made with 100% real potatoes. They come in a variety of flavors such as Creamy Butter, Roasted Garlic and Au Gratin.




One Oh My Baby reader will WIN a prize pack that includes two boxes of Betty Crocker Boxed Instant Mashed Potatoes (one Roasted Garlic and one Homestyle Creamy Butter), a serving bowl, a trivet and a serving spoon. Leave your comment by 11:59pm EST on December 1, 2010. U.S. addresses only please.

The 50 selected Central American schools will also receive $1,000 each for school supplies.

“By linking U.S. and Central American schools, we want to help further the education of students by introducing them to another culture. Our hope is that sister schools will communicate with each other about fun physical activities and their favorite fruit dishes,” said Christou.

Shout Go Play Review

I do not enjoy doing laundry. I'm not sure there is anyone who does. The worst part of laundry are the stains. Between my two kids and dear hubby, the stains are endless. J is going to a new preschool this year that requires uniforms. They're an easy ensemble of navy or white embroidered polo shirts and navy or khaki pants/shorts. I think it should be a rule everywhere that young children should not wear white. J is only in school for 3 hours a day yet manages to ruin his clothes like he's been wearing them for a week straight. The first time I dressed him in a white polo shirt, he came home with green and blue markers streaks and dirt patches all over it. I can't just bleach it because the school's embroidered emblem is a different color.

Lucky me, I recently received a Shout Go Play pack from Growing Tree Toys, online retailer for learning toys and Shout. My review pack included Shout Triple Acting Spray, Shout Color Catcher Sheets and 52 Nature Activities Card Set.

I followed the instructions on the Shout Triple Acting Spray by spraying the stains, rubbing it in and letting it set for 10 mins before starting the wash. I was thrilled when the cycle was finished, the stains where completely gone.




Shout understands how important outdoor play is for children and has started a Go Play Initiative - which emphasizes the value of play for children. The 52 Nature Activities Card Set is a great item that helps promote play and imagination for children of all ages.

There are hundreds of designs to choose from making it almost too hard to choose just one. A few of my favorites are

Waterpik SinuSense Review



SinuSense™ from Waterpik® is putting water to work in a whole new way, Waterpik® is bringing a "breath of fresh air" to the sinus wash category with a completely new line of sinus wash products called SinuSense™. The Waterpik SinuSense™ line has a product for everyone, even kids, depending on their specific symptoms and needs. Just like washing your hands and brushing your teeth, sinus wash becomes part of your daily routine!

Squeeze Bottle- allows you to customize the amount of water flow for a complete cleanse, simply with an easy squeeze. The SoftSeal™ nozzle maximizes comfort and the One-Way FlowControl™ valve prevents backflow to maintain solution purity.

Neti Bottle- a unique approach to the traditional neti pot; its ergonomic shape, SoftSeal™ nozzle and One-Touch FlowControl™ valve make the Neti Bottle easy to hold, comfortable against your nose and creates a controlled gravity-fed water flow that provides a gentle sinus cleansing.

Even better, all SinuSense™ products are BPA free, dishwasher and microwave safe and safe for everyday use, even for children ages 4 and up. Now everyone in your family can breathe easier- and cleaner!

We received both the Squeeze Bottle and Neti Bottle to review. Between the pollen, dog hair and just everyday particles in the air, sometimes we get a little stuffed up. The SinuSense bottles were easy to use. The water flow wasn't uncomfortable and even J likes trying it himself...with our supervision of course. Each bottle came with soothing saline easy-pour packs to add to the water. We did notice we were breathing a little easier after each use.

Waterpik SinuSense can be used to reduce the risk of allergy and sinus symptoms
- Nasal and allergy dryness
- Sinus pressure and nasal stuffiness
- Nasal symptoms from flu and cold
- Nasal irritation from dust, fumes, animal dander, grass, pollen and smoke

Perdue Whole Grain Chicken Nuggets Review & GIVEAWAY



Perdue recently released its latest line of frozen chicken made with 100% whole grain breading. PERDUE Frozen Fully Cooked whole grain breaded chicken is made with 100% white meat and features the Whole Grains Council stamp and provides 4 grams of daily fiber per serving. The line includes Whole Grain Chicken Breast Nuggets, Whole Grain Chicken Breast Strips and Whole Grain Chicken Breast Tenders.

PERDUE® Whole Grain chicken products are packaged in easy-open and close zipper bags so you can use what you need and save the rest for later. These products are an excellent source of protein for mealtime or a snack.

My boys love chicken nuggets! Frankly, I don't know a single kid who doesn't. I have always bought them Perdue chicken nuggets because of the all white meat. When I was asked to try to Perdue's Whole Grain nuggets, I jumped at the chance. I was lucky enough to receive a back-to-school dinner pack that included several bags of Perdue Whole Grain Chicken Nuggets, Crayola Crayons (96-count) and a baking sheet.

I made them for lunch one day and wanted to see if J would notice a difference in taste. I always try new food before feeding it to the kids. I took a bite and I have to admit, I like these whole grain nuggets better than the original. They were juicy and had a great flavor. We are strictly white meat chicken eaters and these were truly white meat. There weren't any weird dark spots in any of the nuggets. Then the real test, the boys. I gave them each several to eat. They both gobbled them down without any hesitation. J even came back asking for more.

Want to try them for yourself? One lucky Oh My Baby reader will WIN 2 coupons, each for a free Perdue Frozen Fully Cooked Chicken product of your choice. Leave your comment by 11:59 pm EST on Oct 8th. U.S. addresses only please.

Ring Bearer Pillows

A couple of good friends of ours recently got married. The bride had a hard time finding ring bearer pillows that she liked and would match the decor. Since both J and L were the ring bearers I was more than happy to help her out. I took the supplies she dropped off at my house with the wedding colors



and made these pillows



I made the smaller one for L so it would be easier for him to hold. The bride was thrilled with how they turned out and so was I. The boys looked adorable in their tuxes (pic to come on Wordless Wednesday). Incase you're wondering...Luke sprinted down the isle practically knocking over the flower girls and J sang a song to himself while dancing down the isle. He even threw in a few spins. Too cute!

MoBoleez Nursing Hat Review

After nursing two babies, I've tried atleast 4 different brands of nursing covers. Each one had their pros and their cons and they were all pretty similar in design and coverage. I recently discovered MoBoleez Nursing Hats and was thrilled to have the opportunity to review their Tropical Tiles design.

What's a MoBoleez Hat?
... and what makes them so special?
MoBoleez hats are the only hats designed specially for the breastfeeding baby and mom.

Covers the breast, not the breastfeeding!
The "stay on head sideways" design means that once the hat is on, it'll stay on, and no more fussing with dropping blankets or awkward, bulky 'nursing covers'. While the big brim gives mom a little privacy, it doesn't cover up the breastfeeding, it celebrates it in a fun sort of way!



I was first impressed with how MoBoleez really did stay on baby's head. At first thought, a sideways baby meant a falling hat but this wasn't the case. The brim was large enough to give me privacy but not too much to suffocate baby. It gave enough coverage all around and made it easy to check on baby too. The beautiful colorful pattern just added a little something special to these unique nursing hats. MoBoleez are easy to care for as they are machine washable and lay flat to dry.

MoBoleez Classic hats come in pink, blue, green, and cream colors, and a variety of whimsical designs. MoBoleez Couture collection is available in cream, brown and black with great fashion prints on the brim.

You can purchase your own MoBoleez Nursing Hat on their website or at select retailers worldwide.

Hasbro U-Build Sorry! Game Review

Playing the same game over and over again can get a little boring over time. Hasbro has come out with a new line of U-Build games to create, customize and play your way.

U-Build includes popular Hasbro games
- Connect Four
- Monopoly
- Battle Ship
- Sorry!
- Mouse Trap

U-Build games allow you to build the game, creating a unique experience every time. Kids can move different pieces to different locations and have hours of fun building, knocking down, jumping over and re-building walls.



We love playing games as a family so we were thrilled when we had the opportunity to review Hasbro's U-Build Sorry! Game. J had a great time building all of the walls. His favorite part was the claw that took my pieces back to the beginning. He just thought it was hilarious! We spent hours building, knocking down, claw grabbing and rebuilding the walls in different places all over the board. Being able to change the board around really did make for a new game every time we played.



U-Build Sorry! includes 98 U-BUILD bricks, 8 small SORRY! pawns, 4 large SORRY! pawns, 2 dice with label sheet, a 10" x 10" gameboard, assembly guide and game guide.

Kraft Macaroni & Cheese Dinner Review

Kraft Macaroni & Cheese is a staple in our house. My kids love it and I love the convenience. When asked if I wanted to review the new Kraft Macaroni & Cheese Dinner Cheddar Explosion, I knew it wouldn't be hard to convince the kids to try them.

The new line of Kraft Macaroni & Cheese Dinner Cheddar Explosion comes in 3 delicious flavors:

-- Extreme Cheese Explosion
-- Grilled Cheese Explosion
-- Cheddar Cheese Explosion

Each new flavor explodes with more cheese sauce and bigger shapes - as compared to our Spirals Macaroni & Cheese dinner and Original Macaroni & Cheese dinner cups.

The dinners were simple to make, in the microwave or on the stovetop. They were quick and tasty. The noodles came out tender and the extra sauce was creamy. J's favorite was Cheddar and he just loved the bigger shaped pasta. He also liked the Grilled Cheese (another favorite meal of his) and actually said it tasted like grilled cheese. Can you tell how excited J was about this review?! He came up with this pose himself.

Housewarming Present

I wanted to make a housewarming present for some wonderful friends that just moved into their new home. Well he was already living there and she just moved in because they're getting married in two weeks. I wanted something fun and came up with a personalized beverage tub. They love to entertain so it was perfect.

I took this ordinary beverage tub ... and turned it into this!

I had trouble trying to find the right shade of blue for their name. This color isn't my first choice but it still turned out nice. The happy couple loved it! I plan on making one for myself now too.
