We came across Naturally Nora baking products about a year ago and have since fell in love with them. You can read our Naturally Nora cake mix review here. What we love about the Naturally Nora’s products are that they do not contain anything artificial, no trans fat, and no high fructose corn syrup.
Recently, Naturally Nora introduced their all natural brownies in two different flavors, Fantastic Fudgy and Doubly Fudgy, and we got the chance to test them out in our kitchen.
Cookies are a weekly treat in our family. On most days we have dessert after dinner and I’m always searching for something quick to make that is also good for my kids. Normally convenient and good don’t go together well so when we heard about the new Pillsbury refrigerated pre-made Simply Cookies that boasted wholesome ingredients we had to give them a try.
According to the package, Pillsbury Simply Cookies include ingredients like wheat flour, brown sugar, and all natural semi-sweet chocolate chips. There are no trans fats, no high fructose corn syrup, and no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. These cookies are available in chocolate-chip and peanut butter flavors.
Our foray into the world of “organics” came shortly after our son was diagnosed with severe food allergies. Since then we’ve been searching for healthy, tasty, and convenient snacks that our son can eat. Recently, we found an awesome snack company – Clif Kid.
The Clif Kid Organic Z Bars are nutritious energy bars that are great for snacking. They come in 6 different flavors including Honey Graham, Peanut Butter, Chocolate Brownie, Chocolate Chip, and 2 new flavors – Apple Cinnamon & Blueberry. Peanut Butter & Chocolate Brownie are the favorites so far in our home.
Let’s face it – most of us Moms are super busy and some days we rely on fast food or convenient pre-packaged meals for our kids lunches. The bad thing with many of these meals are that they are so unhealthy. So, what do you do when you want an easy solution yet you don’t want to sacrifice nutrition?
We’ve found the GoPicnic line of ready-to-eat meals to be a good alternative. The GoPicnic meals are a line of 20 + convenience meals that require no refrigeration. There are several varieties to please almost everyone including the MightyMunch Kids meals, vegetarian meals, gluten free meals, Kosher meals, and more.
One kitchen appliance that I don’t like to use very often during our hot summer months (July & August) is our oven. I prefer to eat and serve foods that don’t have to be cooked. We also use the microwave, bread machine, and our sandwich maker frequently for our meals. Yes, I am the queen of microwaving during the Summer!
Recently we were given the opportunity to try out one of the Aroma rice cookers, and since we eat a ton of rice we definitely wanted to give this convenient appliance a try. We’ve been using this rice cooker for a while now and below you will find our honest review.
