Michele’s Totally Awesome Gourmet Popcorn Giveaway!

I always love supporting other mothers in their business endeavors. That is why I jumped at the chance to try out Michele’s Totally Awesome Gourmet Popcorn. Plus, I love popcorn.

Now, Michele was just making popcorn out of her kitchen and giving it away as gifts. People kept telling her to start selling it, and she finally decided to do it. I, for one, am glad she did. I absolutely love carmel corn, and she has some of the best carmel corn out there! Michele now runs a fully licensed and inspected popcorn kitchen with her family.

We haven’t tried all 20 flavors she has (which includes chocolate carmel, salt and vinegar, carmel apple, and peanut butter cup). However, the flavors we have tried are all excellent. After the first piece of popcorn, Bill handed me the bag and said “you have to try this. It is really good.” He was right (and it was the carmel corn flavor). They really have a flavor for everyone.

Since my family and I love this popcorn, we have arranged for one of my lucky readers to win 2 mini-samplers, so you can try for this awesome popcorn for yourself. Here’s what you need to do:

Rachael Ray’s Nutrish

This post brought to you by Nutrish. All opinions are 100% mine.

Now, I normally talk about people food on here. However, we recently tried out an excellent dog food (let me rephrase that, our dog Daisy tried out an excellent dog food!) that I want to tell you about.

Our vet currently is all about dog food that doesn't have a bunch of additives and stuff that our dog doesn't need. He actually has a list of foods on his preferred list that he gives you when you come in for your first visit. For me (who never had a dog before), it was extremely helpful. I am thinking that Rachael Ray Nutrish just 6 dry dog food will also make his list. Nutrish is a limited ingredient dog food with only six simple, natural ingredients, plus vitamins and minerals for complete and balanced nutrition. It does not include corn, wheat, or soy. Even better though, did you know that proceeds from Rachael Ray’s Nutrish product go toward helping animals in need through her Rachael’s Rescue organization?

Daisy seemed to like the food. I actually caught her trying to open it before we gave it to her. (<– see picture). :) The best part of Nutrish is that you too can get a free sample, so you can try it for free and make sure your dog enjoys it too.

Progresso Giveaway!

This giveaway is now over. The winner is Janet F. Congrats!

I like soup especially here in Chicago in the winter time. Nothing is better to warm you up from the inside out and if it is low in calories, even better!

With hearty ingredients like pasta, beans, corn and rice, and flavor-packed vegetables like tomatoes, carrots, and peppers, Progresso Soup varieties offer a good source of fiber and a full serving of vegetables. I always feel like Progresso Soup is the “adult” soup on the market. It is filling. It is good and very flavorful. It is just an added plus that it is low in calories.
