Roundabouts Cupcake Sleeves Giveaway

Sponsored by Tomoson.comThis giveaway is now over. The winner is Denise B. Congrats!

” alt=”” width=”240″ height=”180″ align=”left” />Roundabouts Cupcake Sleeves are wraps for cupcakes that transform standard cupcakes into virtually anything. Their decorative self-adhesive cupcake wrappers instantly transform cupcakes into popcorn tubs, gumball machine, sushi, and ice cream cones. Their wraps are resistant to grease and oily substances, are earth friendly, and wipe clean if things get a bit messy in the kitchen! They have over 70 designs/themes to pick from, and they can personalize and customize them for you. Roundabouts Cupcake Sleeves have been featured on Rachel Ray Magazine, and they are proud winners of the Most Innovative Exhibitor Award at the 2010 July CA Gift Show in Los Angeles.

Now, how easy are these to use?  Madison and I made muffins yesterday (with cupcake sleeves on them).  It was a great snow day project.  The Roundabout easily goes on.  Madison was able to put it on the muffin that is in this picture.  She is 7.  If she can do it, anyone can.  I loved that my directions included how to make frosting so you can frost the top to look like a bun!  Even though we didn’t do that, Madison loved these!  They are soooo cute!

Since these are so easy to use and cute too, I’ve arranged for one of my lucky readers to get some of their own!  Here’s what you need to do:

Honey Wafers

A new snack we recently tried at my house are the Original Honey Filled and Chocolate Filled Wafer Thins. I never had these before, but Bill recalls have these a young child. He actually might have. Bill grew up in this area and this company is based out of Crestwood, IL! What are Honey Wafers? They are two crispy light 8 inch wafer rounds that are hand-sandwiched together with a honey filling. I’ve been hoarding the chocolate ones to myself, because I like them so much.  However, I have let the kids and the hubby at the honey ones.  We even brought some of these to a family get together, and they were a huge hit.  Everyone wanted to know where we got them from!  I also like that they are 100% natural.  Honey Wafers have no preservatives, no saturated fat, no trans fats, and no cholesterol.  They are even certified kosher!  These make an excellent snack too, because they are only 90 calories!  My first thought when I took a bite was that it tastes like an ice cream cone.  When you get down to the filling part, that just makes it all the more better.  I actually found this snack pretty filling and something I could definitely give both of my kids to eat as a snack.

If you are looking for a healthy snack for you or your kids to try, Honey Wafers is definitely something you should check into.  Not only are they healthy, they taste great too!

Jason’s Deli

Jason’s Deli is available nationwide. However, this review is being done on the Jason’s Deli in Oak Lawn, IL. (This review is also being posted over at My Road Less Traveled By.)

I went with my two kids on a Thursday night about 6 pm by myself. (Needless to say, my hands were full). I found that staff there the most helpful. When you walk into the door, there is someone there to greet you and let you know how this all works (since this was my first visit, I was pretty clueless). She got me a highchair for Will (my one year old), so I didn’t have to hold him while we were standing there trying to figure out what we wanted. The high chair had wheels, so I was able to roll him around quite easily and get him where we needed to go. I was able to take a menu, sit down with the kids, decide what we wanted, and get back into line, so we could order (which is what I did). Ordering was painless. After you order, they give you a number and your drinks, so you can go sit down. They then bring your food to you when it is done. The restaurant is a very open concept. You can see where they make the food. Another thing that impressed me was that the apples and apple juice that I ordered with the kids meals were organic. Also, everything that they serve is free of artificial trans fats and MSG! I personally found the prices quite reasonable. Granted, it would have been cheaper to take the kids to McDonalds, but we would have been hungry an hour later (and this was not all that more expensive either! Maybe a couple of dollars is it!) They have an excellent kids menu too! If you can’t find something for your little one off their kids menu, they are too picky. They even have a dessert menu! Madison (my 4 year old) wanted an ice cream cone, but since she didn’t finish her food, she didn’t get one, so I can’t comment on how good their ice cream is. Our food came quickly and it was good. The sandwiches were much bigger than I expected! There was always somebody walking around cleaning off tables or checking on how you were doing, so you could definitely get help when needed (for example, 2 napkins just doesn’t cut it when you have 3 people and 2 of the 3 are under 5!). I easily was able to get more napkins for us.

The food was great (and healthy!). The service was great! Jason’s Deli also has a blog which makes them stand out even more for me! If you are looking for a great alternative for fast food, you definitely need to check out Jason’s Deli. It is a five star place in my book!
